      When I go to the US, after two weeks,
      I have to run away to eat and breath !

      US discrimination and Junk-Food Culture is awful

      “Tell me what do you eat, I will tell you who you are !”

        You have spoken word for word of my visits as well, even down to the white Caucasian Protestant.

        2 weeks used to be my mandate, but I started wanting to get out much earlier – the continuous splurge of advertising, the US flags lining many streets, the lack of any geographical knowledge and intelligence conversation… and so many other things – it is definitely not for me.

          they are forced to dumb themselves down with a potent developmental neurotoxin called fluoride. It is also great for the profit horrors, because it causes cancer, feeding the rich who own the politicians who put it in the water. Fluoride has many health effects, and feeds much profit via disease.

          http://fluoridealert.org/issues/health/

          And the fools argue against the truth. Fluoride is one of the few toxic chemicals that creates its own support base. By reducing IQ, you reduce the ability to think it through. And then they rally to support drinking it, for cavities when their own health agencies tell them it works topically to kill cavities, not systemically.

          This is why the conversation is dumb, the television is dumb, and the culture is dumb.

          Cannot blame a sheep. for being a sheared sheep. Cant blame the fluoridated STUPID fools, for thinking that profit motive does not supersede their own worth.

          “The NRC Review (2006)
          In 2006, the National Research Council (NRC) stated that “it is apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.” In addition to calling for U.S.-based research on fluoride’s IQ effects, the NRC expressed concern about fluoride’s possible contribution to dementia. According to the NRC:

          “Studies of populations exposed to different concentrations of fluoride should be undertaken to evaluate neurochemical changes that may be associated with dementia. Consideration should be given to assessing effects from chronic exposure, effects that might be delayed or occur late-in-life, and individual susceptibility.”

          Harvard Review (2012)
          In July of 2012, a team of Harvard researchers published a “meta-analysis” of 27 studies that have investigated the relationship between fluoride and human intelligence. (Choi 2012) The overwhelming majority of these studies found that fluoride exposure was associated with reduced IQ in children. In fact, 26 of the 27 studies that met the Harvard team’s inclusion criteria found a relationship between elevated fluoride and reduced IQ. The Harvard team thus concluded that fluoride’s effect on the developing brain of children should be a “high research priority” in countries like the U.S. where, despite mass fluoridation programs, no studies have yet been conducted to investigate the issue.”

            “Cannot blame a sheep, for being a sheared sheep.”, – I want to respond to that, but words fail me. Good analogy though.

            As a Chemical Engineer – if the Fluoride dose is correct it is a benefit… so instead of slagging it off generally, maybe you should find out why the dosage is too high.

          • Nod

            As a person who can read, I know for fact there is no benefit from systemic consumption of fluoride. Science says….

            It is disgusting those who advocate poisoning of our children, in moderation.

            “fluoride prevents dental caries predominately after eruption of the tooth into the mouth, and its actions primarily are topical for both adults and children.”
            CDC

            You should know better, chemist…

            Dr. James Sumner, a Nobel Laureate biochemist at Cornell University:

            “We ought to go slowly [with water fluoridation]. Everybody knows fluorine and fluorides are very poisonous substances…We use them in enzyme chemistry to poison enzymes, those vital agents in the body. That is the reason things are poisoned; because the enzymes are poisoned and that is why animals and plants die.”

          • Nod

            you don’t have the right to drug my kids absent consent.. Nor do you have the right to poison us by forcing us to drink your poison. If you want your genotoxic mutagenic fluoride, suck back some pills….

            National Toxicology Program (NTP), “the preponderance of evidence” from laboratory studies indicates that fluoride is a mutagen (a compound that can cause genetic damage). A chemical that can cause genetic damage is one that can likely cause, or contribute to, the development of cancer.”

            EPA

            The following documents why our union, formerly National Federation of Federal Employees Local 2050 and since April 1998 Chapter 280 of the National Treasury Employees Union, took the stand it did opposing fluoridation of drinking water supplies. Our union is comprised of and represents the approximately 1500 scientists, lawyers, engineers and other professional employees at EPA Headquarters here in Washington, D.C.

            “From a risk assessment perspective, all these brain effect data are particularly compelling and disturbing because they are convergent. We looked at the cancer data with alarm as well. There are epidemiology studies that are convergent with whole-animal and single-cell studies (dealing with the cancer hazard), just as the neurotoxicity research just mentioned all points in the same direction. EPA fired the Office of Drinking Water’s chief toxicologist, Dr. William Marcus, who also was our local union’s treasurer at the time, for refusing to remain silent on the cancer risk issue (9). The judge who heard the lawsuit he brought against EPA over the firing made that finding – that EPA fired him over his fluoride work and not for the phony reason put forward by EPA management at his dismissal. Dr. Marcus won his lawsuit and is again at work at EPA. Documentation is available on request.

            The type of cancer of particular concern with fluoride, although not the only type, is osteosarcoma, especially in males. The National Toxicology Program conducted a two-year study (10) in which rats and mice were given sodium fluoride in drinking water. The positive result of that study (in which malignancies in tissues other than bone were also observed), particularly in male rats, is convergent with a host of data from tests showing fluoride’s ability to cause mutations (a principal ‘trigger’ mechanism for inducing a cell to become cancerous) (e.g.11a, b, c, d and data showing increases in osteosarcomas in young men in New Jersey 12, Washington and Iowa 13) based on their drinking fluoridated water. It was his analysis, repeated statements about all these and other incriminating cancer data, and his requests for an independent, unbiased evaluation of them that got Dr. Marcus fired.

            Bone pathology other than cancer is a concern as well. An excellent review of this issue was published by Diesendorf et al. in 1997(14). Five epidemiology studies have shown a higher rate of hip fractures in fluoridated vs. non-fluoridated communities (15a, b, c, d, e). Crippling skeletal fluorosis was the endpoint used by EPA to set its primary drinking water standard in 1986, and the ethical deficiencies in that standard setting process prompted our union to join the Natural Resources Defense Council in opposing the standard in court, as mentioned above.

            Regarding the effectiveness of fluoride in reducing dental cavities, there has not been any double-blind study of fluoride’s effectiveness as a caries preventative. There have been many, many small scale, selective publications on this issue that proponents cite to justify fluoridation, but the largest and most comprehensive study, one done by dentists trained by the National Institute of Dental Research, on over 39,000 school children aged 5-17 years, shows no significant differences (in terms of decayed, missing and filled teeth) among caries incidences in fluoridated, non-fluoridated and partially fluoridated communities (16). The latest publication(17) on the fifty-year fluoridation experiment in two New York cities, Newburgh and Kingston, shows the same thing. the only significant difference in dental health between the two communities as a whole is that fluoridated Newburgh, N.Y. shows about twice the incidence of dental fluorosis (the first, visible sign of fluoride chronic toxicity) as seen in non-fluoridated Kingston.

            John Colquhoun’s publication on this point of efficacy is especially important (18). Dr. Colquhoun was Principal Dental Officer for Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, and a staunch supporter of fluoridation – until he was given the task of looking at the world-wide data on fluoridation’s effectiveness in preventing cavities. The paper is titled, “Why I changed My Mind About Water Fluoridation.” In it Colquhoun provides details on how data were manipulated to support fluoridation in English speaking countries, especially the U.S. and New Zealand. This paper explains why an ethical public health professional was compelled to do a 180 degree turn on fluoridation.

            Further on the point of the tide turning against drinking water fluoridation, statements are now coming from other dentists in the pro-fluoride camp who are starting to warn that topical fluoride (e.g. fluoride in tooth paste) is the only significantly beneficial way in which that substance affects dental health (19, 20, 21). However, if the concentrations of fluoride in the oral cavity are sufficient to inhibit bacterial enzymes and cause other bacteriostatic effects, then those concentrations are also capable of producing adverse effects in mammalian tissue, which likewise relies on enzyme systems. This statement is based not only on common sense, but also on results of mutation studies which show that fluoride can cause gene mutations in mammalian and lower order tissues at fluoride concentrations estimated to be present in the mouth from fluoridated tooth paste (22). Further, there were tumors of the oral cavity seen in the NTP cancer study mentioned above, further strengthening concern over the toxicity of topically applied fluoride.

            In any event, a person can choose whether to use fluoridated tooth paste or not (although finding non-fluoridated kinds is getting harder and harder), but one cannot avoid fluoride when it is put into the public water supplies. So, in addition to our concern over the toxicity of fluoride, we note the uncontrolled – and apparently uncontrollable – exposures to fluoride that are occurring nationwide via drinking water, processed foods, fluoride pesticide residues and dental care products. A recent report in the lay media (23), that, according to the Centers for Disease Control, at least 22 percent of America’s children now have dental fluorosis, is just one indication of this uncontrolled, excess exposure. The finding of nearly 12 percent incidence of dental fluorosis among children in un-fluoridated Kingston New York (17) is another. For governmental and other organizations to continue to push for more exposure in the face of current levels of over-exposure coupled with an increasing crescendo of adverse toxicity findings is irrational and irresponsible at best. Thus, we took the stand that a policy which makes the public water supply a vehicle for disseminating this toxic and prophylactically useless (via ingestion, at any rate) substance is wrong.

            We have also taken a direct step to protect the employees we represent from the risks of drinking fluoridated water. We applied EPA’s risk control methodology, the Reference Dose, to the recent neurotoxicity data. The Reference Dose is the daily dose, expressed in milligrams of chemical per kilogram of body weight, that a person can receive over the long term with reasonable assurance of safety from adverse effects. Application of this methodology to the Varner et al.(4) data leads to a Reference Dose for fluoride of 0.000007 mg/kg-day. Persons who drink about one quart of fluoridated water from the public drinking water supply of the District of Columbia while at work receive about 0.01mg/kg-day from that source alone. This amount of fluoride is more than 100 times the Reference Dose. On the basis of these results the union filed a grievance, asking that EPA provide un-fluoridated drinking water to its employees.

            The implication for the general public of these calculations is clear. Recent, peer-reviewed toxicity data, when applied to EPA’s standard method for controlling risks from toxic chemicals, require an immediate halt to the use of the nation’s drinking water reservoirs as disposal sites for the toxic waste of the phosphate fertilizer industry (24).

            This document was prepared on behalf of the National Treasury Employees Union Chapter 280 by Chapter Senior Vice-President J. William Hirzy, Ph.D.

            you should find it alarming that the USA drinks over 70 % of the fluoride in use today. Most of the world, KNOWS it is pointless, AND poisonous.

            97% of the western European population drinks non-fluoridated water. This includes: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and approximately 90% of both the United Kingdom and Spain

            Denmark:

            “We are pleased to inform you that according to the Danish Ministry of Environment and Energy, toxic fluorides have never been added to the public water supplies. Consequently, no Danish city has ever been fluoridated.”

        I personally own many rifles but I can see the a huge difference between American incidents and those you posted.
        We have one American school shooting claiming more lives than multiple events in other parts of the world. Its just nuts how much damage one kid can do because you can walk down the street with a few hundred dollars and be ready to cause this much harm. My AR15 cost me 500 bucks and is simple enough that anyone could pick it up and use it to this effect.

        • velociraptor

          I agree with you, heydad! I pointed only that fact, everywhere are sick people. And they kill others. Using disposable weapons. f course, in USA is relatively easy to take a gun, therefore the “effectivity” of massacres is higher.

          My opinion was, the americans are not worse then other nations.

        • RichardD

          There’s a difference between can and does. Mass shootings were rare before Wall Street and big pharma flooded our streets with dangerous CIA developed mind control drugs that they knew would have this effect. Couple that with the degenerate Jew run government and culture and you have the recipe for disaster that followed. The Jews need to go, they’re the fount of evil.

    • Merijn

      A good example tends to be followed…….

      Our govt and military are role models for youth, so maybe they should stop trying to resolve all their problems with violence…
      The media, MSM, also incite this with their constant slave vs. slave civil war narrative, will anyone blame them?

        and stop the imperialism needed for globalism ? You joke right. The rich have decided our future, and act on the plan for that.

    • RichardD

      The US has a lot going for it, and if we could get rid of the Jews it would be a lot better.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        not to be a spoil sport, but what you saying it is an impossibility. You are and similar thinking as you in usa are a very small minority.

        The jews control mass media and holyshit, war industry and via the evangelists your government no matter what stooge from time to time become your figure head with tier blessing, as well 99% of all who call themselves politicians.

        So how exactly you get rid of someone, that has more than 50% followers who worship them as the chosen children of their god and with their vote elect puppet presidents each and every time?

        Not to mention that every year they collect all your taxes. So how you suggest you get rid of them? Hard as it may sound they have get rid of you, a very long time ago and the few who have left are destined to become extinct in less than two generations time.

        And almost the same is happening in all northern europe moving slowly towards the south. This is reality my friend. Is nothing in the so called western world they don’t control and mostly own. Now if another world world does happen and any of humanity does survive, then yes we may get rid off them. In the mean time all it can be done is hold our own territories and not let them get infected by the vermin.

        • RichardD

          They’ve been expelled and genocided more than any other group over the past 3,000 years for their crime and evil. The US is just their latest host to feed off of until they suffer the predictable consequences. 95% of the planet’s Jews live in the US, Israel, France, Canada and the UK. 83% in the US and Israel.

          Their power lies in money, lies and corruption. Half of the nations on the planet are Jew free. The other half need to be worked on, the US and Israel in particular. The laws that they’re violating need to be enforced against them.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            genocided… not really, other wise they cease to exist a long time ago. And yes I can even name you the countries who have expelled them and when they did so and why.

            No their power lies in intermixing with the elite families of each country they go into and that in this countries, they do take high positions. So from the ancient times to today when they expelled them, their elite stay intact and behind preparing the time for the return of the masses been expelled very prime example you can take England, that expelled them with a kings order, in 12th century. They when every where Italy – France – Spain but where they flourish the most was Holland where they formed the Dutch Indian Company that 16th century financed Cromwell to take down the king reverse the order and allow them back in. Where they created City of London and Indian Company then started all revolutions in Europe, as well the wars financing both sides and started the colonies aboard that formed today’s reality.

            I am very well versed in historical fact and to who is who my friend. Been realistic and doing what one can do with his people, is better than waiting someone else to do a miracle that will save you and it will never happen.

          • RichardD

            They have a long history of genocide. By the Germans and others before them.

            They’re a parasitical disease. They gravitate to control positions in society to take it over. Which is why there have been so many laws over time in various locations blocking them from doing this. And then they cry antisemitism, when Israel shows that they’re the biggest racists, bigots and antisemites on the planet.

            The Russians have dejudified 95% of Jews from Russia over the past 100+ years. As have many others over te past 3,000 years. Saying that it can’t be done is ignoring the fact that it has been done many times.

          • Antikapitalista

            Indeed, that is their recipe for survival, which is also the seed of their eventual destruction in events like the holocaust.

            I would prefer the term “dezionized”… and it is something that needs to be done.

            And to anyone who cries “antisemitism”, take a deep look into their face and ask them a question if they are part of “the God’s Chosen people” because you consider the notion to be on par with the notion of “master race”.

            I am confident that the Zionists (and their audience before which they were screaming that) would surely understand this very well! B-)

          • RichardD

            There are a lot of people who try to do the Zionist bad Jew, non Zionist good Jew thing. If that’s where you’re coming from, I don’t agree. Zionism is a part of Judaism, and almost all Jews are Zionists, 93% of US Jews according to a recent poll. 99.5% of Jews are Talmud rabbinical Jews, and the other .5% also use the Talmud and probably rape their children also. They have a criminal racist supremacist ideology. Judaism is a pedophile mass rape cult that needs to be outlawed for the betterment of society and humanity.

          • Antikapitalista

            Of course, discerning these terms is of vital importance.

            Jews are an ethnic and religious group, to encompass the most widely understood meanings of the term.
            In many jurisdictions, it is forbidden to “incite hatred” against ethnic or religious groups.
            However, the Zionists are neither, so they can be safely criticized. :-P

            Moreover, precisely because there is a high level of correlation (and even collusion!) between these 2 groups, the Jews and the Zionists, it is all the more important to distinguish between and divide them. Never lump them together, or you will be attacked and derided as a xenophobe, anti-Semite and whatnot… and you will have the pressure exerted on you because of your stupidity. And rightly so, because you are not using the proper terms. The Jews are really not the problem. The Zionists are a problem. The fact that most Jews are also Zionists, is irrelevant here.
            You need to distinguish between them because it allows for nice analogies with Nazism. The Jews—oops, sorry—the Zionists love Nazism—in much the same way as politicians love child pornography. They love the term and they love to use it on anyone, they are very fond of labelling anyone as a Nazi or anyone’s actions as Nazi-like. Be smarter, do not let them take the initiative, take the initiative yourself!
            Show real concern for the Jews and for their plight. Note that it is the Zionists’ fault. Make appropriate comparisons between the Zionists and the Nazis. You may start with the concept of “God’s Chosen People” vs. “the master race”… you may continue with the concept of living space in Europe vs. the Levant… and you may finish with the concept of false flag attacks and belligerence, such as the assassination attempt of Shlomo Argov and the subsequent invasion of Lebanon vs. the Gliwice incident and the subsequent invasion of Poland (the origins of the opportunity here are not quite the same but the subsequent abuse is the same).
            The more similarities between the Nazis and the Zionists, the better.

            Express genuine sorrow for the plight of the Jews, declare that you love the Jews but hate the Zionists because *Zionism is essentially a fascist ideology of hatred whose probably first and foremost victims are the Jews themselves*. :-P Do not embarrass yourself by being associated with Nazism, make the Jews ashamed for associating themselves with Zionism. ;-)

            It is called “concern trolling”. The West uses it a lot. Simply put: “concern trolling” is the language of the West.

            Do you understand it now?
            To fight your opponents effectively, you need to turn their weapons against them and use their language against them. Deflect the thrust and reverse it! Never let them lump together, but divide them and turn them against each other!

          • RichardD

            You’re ignoring the fact that Jews belong to an evil pedophile rape cult that should be outlawed. And you are engaged in a blame shifting exercise with your good non Zionist Jews vs bad Zionist Jews. Their Talmud rabbinical cult manual teaches all Jews to be evil, whether they’re Zionists or not. The problem is Judaism, Zionism is one of the symptoms, pedophile rape is another, victimizing non Jews is another.

          • Antikapitalista

            You are either a brain-dead moron, or you are purposely acting like one!

            You need to be subtle, you need to refrain from overreaching statements and, above all, you need to drive a wedge between the Zionists (who are a minority in just about every society except their own) and their fellow travellers, who provide them with support. You need to win the people’s favour, not become the target of their condemnation!

            With an attitude like yours, you will never get the message across, you are doing a disservice to spreading it—you will only earn condemnation for it and so will your message.
            You have already seen it in this debate, after all.

          • RichardD

            You’re the Jew pedophile rape cult supporter, not me. I condemn the evil Jew cult for what it is and for all of the crime and evil that they commit.

          • Antikapitalista

            Certainly not! After all, the Jews have still survived, unlike many other nations, who have really perished in the course of the past 3000 years.

          • RichardD

            Jews are a parasitical disease that needs to be outlawed. Other diseases have been eradicated in the modern age. Israel and Jewmerica have made Jew crime and evil plain for all to see. Their evil cult belongs in the trash can of history.

        Yes, the problem is cultural, partly. remember, their president told them they were exceptional. As they did mass murder on Muslims world wide. They beLIEve.

        Yet these mass shootings are not cultural. They are drug based, although the drug companies quash any hint of it. Fact is.

        Most mass shootings are done by people under treatment with SSRI drugs. These drugs are proven to cause extreme hostility, violence and lack of empathy. Says so too, on the package inserts. Add to that accessible guns?

        And the original comment had it bang on. Doctors are drugging children with developing brains. Mostly for disease they created out without clinical data support at all.

        I was bored in school, the material was boring, the material was irrelevant to life. I was not interested. Today, they would have called me ADHD, or attention deficit disorder, or aggressive disorder, and then drugged me with drugs that cause mental problems.

        My only problem, was being intelligent enough to see through the bullpoop called culture.

          How Bulgaria supplied drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh

          http://www.voltairenet.org/article189802.html

          by Thierry Meyssan

          The best-kept secrets must be revealed in the end. The mafia cartel which governs Bulgaria has been caught supplying drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh, at the demand of the CIA, both in Libya and Syria. The affair is all the more serious since Bulgaria is a member of NATO and the European Union.

          Head of one of the two Bulgarian mafia cartels, the SIC, Boïko Borissov has occupied the post of Prime Minister since 2014. While his country was a member of both NATO and the European Union, he supplied drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh in Libya and Syria.

          It seems that everything began by accident. For about thirty years, fenetylline was used as a performance-enhancing drug in the West German sports world. According to trainer Peter Neururer, more than half of the athletes took it regularly [1]. Bulgarian drug dealers spotted an opportunity in this situation, and from the dissolution of the Soviet Union until Bulgaria’s entry into the European Union, they began to produce it and illegally export it to Germany under the name of Captagon.

          Two mafia groups were locked in serious competition – Vasil Iliev Security (VIS), and Security Insurance Company (SIC), the company which employed the karateka Boïko Borissov. This high-level athlete, professor at the Police Academy, created a company supplying protection for important personalities, and became the body-guard for pro-Soviet ex-President Todor Jivkov as well as for pro-US Simeon II Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha. As soon as Simeon II became Prime Minister, Borissov was named as the central Director of the Ministry of the Interior, then was elected mayor of Sofia.

          In 2006, the United States ambassador in Bulgaria (and future ambassador to Russia), John Beyrle, sketched his character in a confidential cable which was revealed by Wikileaks. He presented Borissov as being connected to two major mafia bosses, Mladen Mihalev (alias « Madzho ») and Roumen Nikolov (alias « The Pacha ») [2], the founders of SIC.

          In 2007, basing its article on a report drawn up by a large Swiss company, the U.S. Congressional Quarterly claimed that he had smothered a number of enquiries at the Ministry of the Interior, and was himself implicated in 28 mafia murders. He apparently became a partner of John E. McLaughlin, Deputy Director of the CIA. He is said to have set up a secret prison for the Agency in Bulgaria, and helped to provide a military base in the context of the project for an attack on Iran, the Quarterly continued [3].

          In 2008, the German specialist in organised crime, Jürgen Roth, qualified Boïko Borissov as a « Bulgarian Al Capone » [4].

          Having himself become Prime Minister, and while his country was already a member of NATO and the EU, he was solicited by the Agency to help in the secret war against Mouamar el-Kadhafi. Boïko Borissov supplied Captagon, manufactured by the SIC, to the al-Qaïda jihadists in Libya. The CIA rendered this synthetic drug more attractive and more powerful by mixing it with a natural drug, hashish, which made it easier to manipulate the fighters and make them more terrifying, in line with the work of Bernard Lewis [5]. Following that, Borissov extended this market to Syria.

          But most importantly, the CIA, using the profile of an ex-Warsaw Pact member which had recently joined NATO, bought from him 500 million dollars’ worth of Soviet-type weaponry and transported it to Syria — mainly 18,800 portable anti-tank grenade launchers and 700 Konkurs anti-tank missile systems.

          When Hezbollah sent a team to Bulgaria to gather information about this traffic, a bus-load of Israeli holiday-makers were the object of a terrorist attack in Burgas, leaving 32 wounded. Immediately, Benjamin Netanyahu and Boïko Borissov accused the Lebanese resistance, while the Atlantist Press spread a number of allegations about the supposed Hezbollah kamikaze. Finally, the forensic scientist, Dr. Galina Mileva, noticed that the corpse did not correspond to the witness descriptions – while a counter-intelligence chief, Colonel Lubomir Dimitrov, noted that he was not a kamikaze, but a simple carrier, and that the bomb had been triggered from a distance, probably without his knowledge. The Press accused two Arabs of Canadian and Australian nationality, but the Sofia News Agency quoted a US accomplice known by the pseudonym of David Jefferson. The outcome was that when the European Union sought to use the affair in order to classify Hezbollah as a « terrorist organisation », the Minister for Foreign Affairs – during the short period when Borissov was excluded from executive power – Kristian Vigenine, made it clear that in reality, nothing was found that could tie the attack to the Lenbanese resistance [6].

          From the end of 2014, the CIA ceased its orders and was replaced by Saudi Arabia, who were thus able to buy weapons which were no longer ex-Soviet left-overs, but modern NATO material, such as the wire-guided anti-tank BGM-71 TOW missiles. Soon, Riyadh was supported by the United Arab Emirates [7]. The two Gulf states themselves handled the deliveries to Al-Qaïda and Daesh, via Saudi Arabian Cargo and Etihad Cargo, either at Tabuk, on the Saudi-Jordanian border, or the Emirati-Franco-US base at Al-Dhafra.

          In June 2014, the CIA turned up the pressure. This time, they forbade Bulgaria to allow access to the Russian gas pipeline South Stream, which could have supplied Western Europe [8].This decision, which deprived Bulgaria of some very important income, not only helped to slow down the growth of the European Union, as described in the Wolfowitz plan [9], but also to apply the European sanctions against Russia which had been implemented under the pretext of the Ukranian crisis, to develop the exploitation of shale gas in Eastern Europe [10], and finally, to maintain the interest of overthrowing the Syrian Arab Republic, a possible major gas exporter [11].

          The latest news is that Bulgaria – a member-state of NATO and the European Union – continues to illegally supply drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh, despite the recent Resolution 2253, which was unanimously adopted by the UN Security Council.

    It’s weird that America has so much incidents of violent gun culture. Many other countries allow for public gun ownership as well and yet none of them have so many violent incidents as the US. That is why I don’t think stricter gun control will solve the problem. To quote from Monty Pyhton, the violence is inherited in the system. Its in the very culture. And as our Islamic friends have shown, you don’t need a gun to kill a lot of people, knives, cars, anything can be turned into a deadly object if you want too.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      you have a country that abolish the principles of family values, run by pedophiles and perverts and is been mixed so much with every one hating each other, grown up educated by holywood and video games that are so violent is unbelievable and then 5 year old playing them, killing each other.

      Where is the surprise in what is happening?

      • Barba_Papa

        All those things apply to Canada and Europe as well. Canada has public gun ownership, many European countries have public gun ownership, yet none of them has violent incidents of the kind that seems to plague the US. It must be something else, something that was already part of US culture and which is absent somewhere else. The only other countries which are this violent are usually ones where drug cartels are battling each other and the police.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          and Greece lately. many countries are falling to the amerikanized ways, via TV and holyshit movies where no matter what they show you be hard to find a movie with out lesbians and queers in them promoting their ways of life and perversion.

          But we not speaking of them right now, but the events are happening in as we call it… ousa.

        • TiredOfBsToo

          I can think of 3 ways to deal with mass shootings.

          Option 1) I often hear how this mass shooter is a copy cat shooter etc. Maybe if they could show these captured mass murderers suffering painfully (like innocents have been at Guantanamo) for hours on end and then enduring a life of hard labor on film as a documentary for school age kids, the copy cats looking for fame and free tv, exercise yards and education on prison grounds would be deterred and only the hardcore suicidal ones would be left to deal with. With all of the mass surveillance available and beginning at the school age level, those possessing those psychotic traits could be identified, professionals could attempt to counter those traits at an early age and finally, all of those spying devices possessed by the Deep State, could truly serve a useful purpose to keep an eye on the development of that individual, rather than using the equipment to counter their political opponents.

          Option 2) Would be for the government to stop promoting division in the country through it’s propaganda mechanism, stop supplying unending monies promoting death and destruction around the world (Military Industrial Complex), stop glorifying war and murder in the movies and verbally while at the same time cutting social programs, exporting jobs, increasing the poverty and homeless levels for the benefit of a few at the top; in other words, fuel todays kids with a feeling of love, family and the dreams of a prosperous future, rather than a barren wasteland.

          Option 3) The government (Deep State) continue in it’s ways until the downfall of the US.

          While I prefer option 2 with some option 1 mixed in, I feel the Deep State will continue with option 3.

          • Blaine

            For sure it will be option 3 but only after option 2 has fully marinated. And after that it will be good for all the guns –

            “I can hire one half of
            the working class to
            kill the other half.”
            – Jay Gould

            Option 1 will never work as most of the nutters doing these shootings fully intend to take an exit dose when the ride is over.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            This one was captured alive. I’m sure the police will ensure they take more and more of these people alive in the future. You are right though, usually they are suicidal. Since they seek publicity before they go, give them none. Examples need to be made of these nutters one way or another.

          • Blaine

            I’m not so sure they even care about the publicity. They’re going to be dead anyway. They seem to be plain misanthropic combined with homicidal/suicidal tendencies. Lay waste up close and personal and bow out – an FU to society.

            I do not believe there is a preventive solution, and an active one is not going to be any more than partially effective.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            As I was saying, requires a change from a society that’s based on everyone for themselves and scr*w the rest. That is the way of capitalism. One has to not be conditioned to think in that manner. Like the US leading by example of always having plenty of money for wars, but nothing for people and trying to take the little bit that people do have. Is it any wonder then that the US cares not about destroying other countries civilizations when it so readily destroys it’s own.
            Anyway, no easy solution especially with the government the US has had going back to at least the 1800s, which only gets worse year after year (probably why the escalation too).

          • Nod

            “nutters doing these shootings”

            They are not necessarily nutters, they are usually drugged by big pharma…

            mens rea, is a pill. Think on that.

          • Barba_Papa

            I’m not sure if option 1 is desirable, there’s too much surveillance already to give it even more credibility for the government. Option 2 is not going to happen because the government, and the public too for that matter, will just view these incidents as collateral damage. Collateral for the government as part of the cost of doing business, and collateral for the American public, because half of them worship guns.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            I agree there’s too much surveillance already, I’m suggesting they could use it to address real problems rather than just using it to spy on everyone in case they ever want to use it, say against a political opponent. As for worship, I think ignorance is what’s valued most in American society and the corporate media, hand in hand with the Deep State, does it’s best to keep it that way.

      US is one of the least civilized countries on the planet — a country that commits barbaric acts abroad, supports regimes that commit violence against their own citizens, and encourages violence by Americans against other Americans.

    • Yui2

      It’s because of the utter degeneration of the american family unit. The children do not have a support base in their family, they do not have a role model in their parents, they don’t have the proper upbringing.

      • Barba_Papa

        The same applies to Canada and Europe, if not more so. Canada’s PM is basically a feminist mangina, and the less said about the emasculated men of Scandinavia the better. No, it’s something unique in American culture that drives them to this.

          and u think ignorance is knowledge.

          • Barba_Papa

            Usually ignorance is bliss. And it depends on what you define as knowledge. And the bullshit they try to cram down our throats that is called political correctness is anything but knowledge.

          • Nod

            Voters just kill me. Running to vote for an appointee of the rich, then they blame everything that happens on the puppet. No matter that inequality is the source of most our ills, they keep voting, keep blaming, and keep their eyes shut.

            What you get rammed down your throat, is a big fat nothing called politics. And you dont even know it.,

          • Barba_Papa

            The way I see it, democracy, oligarchy, autocracy, whatever, it doesn’t really matter what form a government takes, they’re all just ways that the ruling elite uses to legitimize itself.

          • Nod

            indeed, and the only way we stop that, is to end inequality. Which we can do, with technology. Yet the herd will continue to advocate an idiotology which favours gross inequality,.

          • Barba_Papa

            Because everybody wants to become rich as well. And then they don’t fancy paying most of that new wealth in taxes as well?

        Big pharma is a prime Wall Street cash cow. Are you going to tell me that the Jews don’t control Wall Street, the media and big pharma? Who do you think overseas the government FDA process passing all of the fraudulent studies showing that these dangerous drugs are safe when they’re clearly not? The Jews control the US government. That makes them responsible. If we got rid of the Jews and had more responsible people in government, we wouldn’t have a lot of these problems.

          RichardD ; you misunderstand what I am trying to communicate to you .
          You make many , many good arguments on a variety of topics but because you tie into your on topic argument A with your ongoing argument B many people will just skip your whole post . Eg. , today your correct position on the cause of these high school shootings , psycho-active antidepressants , gets ignored by many because you tie into that argument with your “the Jews are responsible” argument . Those are two separate arguments .
          On this topic today , mass shootings , you are the only one who got it right , the psycho active drugs . The sad reality is that many , if not most , will judge you to be just an other “hater” and dismiss your whole post . Stay on topic , the world needs your wisdom .

          • RichardD

            An American government and nation free of Jews would almost certainly be much better run than the Jew infested one that we have. Including in areas like gun rights and dangerous drugs. Rob Portman just got kicked out of government for being a wife beater. Yet our government is filled corrupt Jews who rape their children at birth, infect them with venereal disease, brain damage and murder them. Non Jews are sent to prison every day for these crimes. The Jews have so corrupted the judicial system and government that they don’t even get investigated, let alone prosecuted for these and many other crimes, like 911.

            he wasn’t the only one that got it. Many get it, it is just the herd bleats louder than we can howl….

            this woman, now in her 70s is my understanding, has got it for a long time.

            https://ssristories.org/

            The hate is a pointless distraction from reason. Jewish people are just as helpless as we are, against whatever drives the ignorance and prejudice that we call culture.

            So many haters come from America. No country has done mass murder like america. Sadly, I being American, can do nothing to stop it. And most of my neighbors, are not smart enough to see the mind-fook done on them.

            I am just as powerless under the corporate leadership of my country, as Jews are under their leadership. And their children are just as mind-washed, as ours.

            problem is, like the majority of problem on this planet, is incipient of profit motive and its brothers called greed and envy..

    • Nod

      science has the answer to this.

      Switzerland has more guns per capita than Americans do. Yet they have minimal inequality. And little violence.

      Americans have many guns, and amongst the worst inequality in the so called civilized world..

      UK has few guns , violence rampant, and inequality rivaling the Americans.

      Answer is in science, and it is simple.

      Inequality = violence.Tool used for that violence, is irrelevant. Except for those trying to use the violence to disarm the yanks.

      And as our American friends have shown, guns work way better than any other tool for doing murder on those who have resources our corporate masters covet.

      So when the government uses guns and bombs and a murder death culture to do imperialism, how on earth would we expect different from the fluoridated herd in America then ?

        Manufacturing “Failed States”

        by Edward S. Herman

        The United States has mastered the art of undermining its targets by fomenting domestic terrorism, and then laying the responsibility on them for the crimes sponsored by Washington itself. This method affords it the possibility both to justify military intervention and to carry it out without risk. The well-oiled scheme described here by Edward S. Herman is now being applied in Syria.

        An Al-Qaeda operative who arrived in Syria with Western officials. Why change a recipe that works?

        During the Vietnam War, a sign over one of the U.S. army bases read “Killing Is Our Business, and Business Is Good.” Well, it was a very good business in Vietnam (and Cambodia, Laos, and Korea as well), the number of civilian deaths running into the millions. And it has been quite respectable in the years after Vietnam. The killings have been carried out both directly and via proxies on every continent, as U.S. “national security” has required bases, garrisons, assassinations, invasions, bombing wars, and the sponsorship of killer regimes, real terror networks, and programs everywhere in response to terrorist threats and challenges to the “pitiful giant.” Jan Knippers Black pointed out years ago in her great book [1] that “national security” is a wonderfully elastic concept, expanding in accord with “what a nation, class or institution…thinks it should have,” with the result that it is those “whose wealth and power would appear to make them most secure who are, in fact, most paranoid, and who, by their frenetic attempts to ensure their security, bring on their own destruction.” (She was addressing the 1960s Brazilian threat of social democracy and its termination by a U.S.-supported counter-revolution and military dictatorship.) Add to this the search by the vested interests of the military-industrial-complex for missions to justify budget increases, and the mainstream media’s full cooperation in this search, and we have a frightening reality.

        In reality, the fake-paranoid giant has had to struggle valiantly to produce more or less credible threats, especially with the fall of the “Evil Empire,” which this country had long been allegedly “containing.” Thank goodness that after relatively brief spurts of attention to narco-terrorism and then Saddam’s threatening weapons of mass destruction, Islamic terrorism came virtually out of nowhere to provide a successor threat, no doubt produced by hostility to U.S. freedoms and the Islamic world’s unwillingness to allow Israel to find a negotiating partner and peaceably settle any disputes with the Palestinians.

        But in addition to maintaining the killing and associated arms business at a high level, the United States has become a large-scale manufacturer of failed states. By a failed state I mean one that has been crushed militarily or rendered unmanageable by political and/or economic destabilization and a resultant chaos and is unable (or is not permitted) for long periods to recover and take care of its citizens’ needs. Of course, the United States has been such a manufacturer for a long time, as in the cases of Haiti, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala and those Indochinese states where killing was so good. But we have seen a dramatic resurgence in more recent times, some of it more or less peaceful, as in the cases of post-Soviet Russia and several of the Eastern European states, where income declines and sharply increased mortality rates resulted from “shock therapy” and Western-assisted but partly locally organized and supported elite semi-legal grand larceny (i.e., privatization under exceptionally corrupt conditions).

        But there has been a fresh stream of failed states brought about by U.S. and NATO “humanitarian intervention” and regime change, carried out more aggressively in the wake of the death of the Soviet Union (and thus the end of an important if limited force of “containment”). Humanitarian intervention in Yugoslavia has been a model, with Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo turned into failed states, several other weaklings broken out, all of them Western clients or supplicants, plus a huge U.S. military base in Kosovo, with this package replacing one formerly independent social democratic state. This demonstration of the merits of imperial intervention set the stage for further failed-state manufacturing efforts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Libya, with a similar program well advanced today in Syria and one obviously in process for some years in the Free World’s treatment of a threatening Iran, following its happy relationship with the Western-imposed Shah dictatorship.

        These manufactured failures have often had common features that show them to be a product of imperial policy and the projection of imperial power. One frequent feature is the rise and/or recognition of ethnic group rebels who claim victimhood, fight their government with terroristic acts, sometimes designed to provoke a violent government response, and who regularly appeal to the imperial powers to come to their aid. Sometimes foreign mercenaries are imported to aid the rebels, and both the indigenous rebels and mercenaries are often armed, trained and given logistical support by the imperial powers. The imperial powers encourage these rebel efforts as they find them useful to justify destabilizing, bombing, and eventually overthrowing the target regime.

        This process was evident throughout the period of the dismantlement of Yugoslavia and creation of the resultant set of failed states. The NATO powers wanted Yugoslavia taken apart and the Republic of Serbia, its largest and most independent component, crushed. They encouraged nationalist elements within the other Republics to rebel, and all of these recognized that NATO would support and eventually go to war for them. This made for prolonged warfare and ethnic cleansing, but did eventually succeed in the destruction of Yugoslavia and creation of the residual failed states [2]. Amusingly, Al Qaeda elements and mercenaries were imported into both Bosnia and Kosovo to help fight the target Republic (Serbia), with the knowledge and cooperation of the Clinton administration, as well as Iran [3]. Al Qaeda was also one of the constituents of the freedom fighters engaged in the Libyan campaign, and is now admitted even if a little belatedly in the New York Times to be a factor in the Syria regime-change program [4]. And, of course, it was a centerpiece in the regime change in Afghanistan and basis of the “blowback” of 9/11 (Bin Laden having been an important Saudi-US.-sponsored rebel, subsequently abandoned by those sponsors, and later attacking, demonized, and killed by them).

        These programs always involve serious “atrocities management,” whereby the government under attack is accused of major acts of violence against the rebels and their supporters, and is by this process effectively demonized and set up for more massive intervention. This was very important in the Yugoslav breakup wars, and possibly even more so in Libya and Syria. The process is greatly helped by the mobilization of international agencies, which participate in the demonization by denouncing the atrocities and sometimes indicting and prosecuting the targeted villains. In the case of Yugoslavia, the UN-established International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) worked hand-in-glove with the NATO powers in setting up the Serb leadership for prosecution and justifying any action the US and NATO wanted to take. In a beautiful illustration of the process, the ICTY prosecutor indicted Milosevic in May 1999 just as NATO turned to deliberately bombing Serb civilian facilities to hasten Serbian surrender, although these were war crimes and carried out under a UN Charter violation. But they diverted world attention from the unpleasant and illegal NATO behavior to the charges against the demonized Milosevic.

        Similarly, with NATO eager to attack Libya, the prosecutor at the International Criminal Court quickly indicted Muammar Gaddafi without even having conducted any independent investigation, and with an established prosecutor record of never having indicted anybody except Africans who were not Western clients. This kind of “juridical management” is invaluable to the imperial powers and feeds well into the advance of regime change and the manufacture of failed states.

        There are also purportedly independent human rights groups and “democracy promotion” entities like Human Rights Watch, the International Crisis Group, and the Open Society Institute that regularly get on the imperial bandwagon by featuring the violence of the targeted regime and its leaders. This also feeds into the mainstream media, the entire set providing the moral environment for more aggressive intervention on behalf of the victims.

        This is helped still further by the fact that the atrocity claims and pictures of grieving widows and refugees, the seemingly compelling evidence on atrocities, and an establishment consensus on the “responsibility to protect” the victim populations, also affect liberal and left elements in the West, causing some to join the mainstream throng in denouncing the targeted regime and demanding humanitarian intervention, and many others to lapse into silence because of confusion and an unwillingness to be accused of “supporting the dictators.” The argument of the interventionists is that while we may seem to be supporting an expanding imperialism, exceptions must be made where exceptionally bad things are happening and the home public is aroused and wants action, but we may show our progressive credentials by trying to micro-manage and contain the imperial attack, as in insisting on adherence to a no-fly zone intervention in Libya [5]

        There is a good case to be made that the United States itself is a failed or failing state. It obviously has not been crushed militarily by any foreign power, but its underlying population has been hugely damaged by its own permanent war system. In this case the military elite, with its contractor, banker, political, media and intellectual allies has greatly enlarged poverty and mass distress, shriveled the public services, and impoverished the country, making it impossible for the hamstrung and compromised leadership to properly service its ordinary citizens, despite steadily rising per capita productivity and GDP. The surpluses are drained into the war system and the consumption and ownership of a small minority, who, in what Steven Pinker in The Better Angels of Our Nature calls the era of “recivilization,” are aggressively striving to go beyond mere surplus monopolization to transfers from the incomes, wealth and public claims of the great (and struggling) majority. As a failed state as well as in other ways the United States is surely an exceptional nation!

    It’s frightening for Switzerland having almost
    as many guns than Americans.

    But luckily the Swiss Culture and Education
    is Light Years Away from America,
    maybe 20 killings by guns a Year !

    Few years ago, everybody can buy guns and munitions,
    today an easy to get permit is needed…
    For munitions an ID is good enough

    If American Warmongers Character can’t be Educated,
    the Guns Tradition has to be eradicated !

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      owning guns or not has absolutely no relevance, to what is happening in usa. Why always people confuse the tool used to commit a criminal act, with the main cause of the act?

      • Turbofan

        There was a mass stabbing in China last week. one person died..one.., Now imagine if guns were readily available in China and that person had an AR 15, then that would have been a mass shooting and more dead..Pretending that everyone basically owning a gun isn’t part of the issue is just lying to oneself..There are psychos everywhere but not psychos with easy access to guns

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          very lame argument. And i don’t have to imagine what will happen IF a chinese had a gun. Especially in a country they eat embryos and infants allegedly for medical reasons. The less they become the better for the rest of the globe.

          So…… I leave the imagination for you, I go by facts and common sense.

          • Turbofan

            WOW.. So much hatred for another country.. Typical American. No wonder they shoot each other for fun…
            So you found a way to make this about China. deflection? Was just using China as an example sine a mass stabbing happened there a short time ago but this isn’t about China. There have been mass murder attempts in many countries but hasn’t quite materialized due to the difficulty involved in obtaining a gun or automatic weapons like the AR15…but OK..
            Being delusional is always blamed for mass murders in the US… Looks like you will be the next perpetrator..

            What you think creating laws to ban the weapons would stop people from illegally attaining firearms….is that the logic lol If that’s the case why is Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, and Baltimore have such high murder rates for gun violence over 90% of the firearms used it shootings in Chicago are un-lisenced firearms. If a gun doesn’t work people find other methods like using trucks or vans to plow into people. Or use a knife which kills more Americans each year than gun-violence does but we don’t take knives out of the kitchen do we? The Virginia Tech shooter didn’t use an assault rifle but used handguns and killed a dozen people….your point is? People have gone on stabbing sprees in schools before stabbing classmates and teachers by dozens too.

        • Nod

          so you dont have a clue about relevant, or mens rea huh….

          removing guns will NOT solve the violence. Just look at the UK. When a crime is committed there are two factors must be proved.

          mens rea – guilty mind

          actus reus – guilty act.

          Removing guns, will not change the mens rea being incipient of psychoactive drugs..

          Your answer is to keep making violent zombies for profit, just remove their guns.

Or try to convince every one that are Swiss and forget their roots.

          I lived in and out due to my business interest, several years in Switzerland and I know the country, as well their ways of life.

    I’m a 59 year old American. Mass shootings were almost unheard of in the US when I was younger. 95% occurred after psycho shooter drugs were legalized and pumped into society in mass quantities by pusher shrinks writing scripts to fuel their income. 10% of the civilian and 17% of the military have them in their medical history. Almost every mass shooter is on them.

    The US is the most Jew infested nation on the planet. It needs to be dejudified and these evil cultists gotten out of government, media, finance and academia where they do so much harm.

    This is another mass shooting where school security dropped the ball badly. This kid wandered around the school, shot people in 7 different rooms, and then left and went to the fast food place to get something to eat. 37 people were shot, and he was never once confronted by an armed security guard, teacher or janitor.
