Germany will send Patriot Missiles to Syrian Border to establish a No-fly Zone

Western oppressors are creating a new military industrial complex enclave in the Middle East.

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | NOVEMBER 22, 2012

Germany will send two missile batteries ‘Patriot-3’ to Turkey’s border with Syria as part of increased Western involvement in Syrian civil war. Even before Ankara made its request for these batteries to NATO, Berlin announced Monday its favorable decision, which is expected to be endorsed without problems in December by the Bundestag.

In total, three batteries of a kind only in the hands of Germany, the Netherlands and the United States, will be shipped to Turkey’s border with Syria. It is expected that the third battery will be sent by Holland. Each battery requires a team of 85 soldiers, so it is expected that Berlin sends in 170 men.

The “Patriot” missiles, with a long history of unequal effects from the first Gulf War to the present day, are interceptor weapons that track and destroy other missiles as well as other air assets. Turkey has been involved in the conflict between the West and the Syrian government, which was preceded by the extermination of Gaddafi in Libya. Turkey has always sided with Washington and NATO, even  though it meant suffering mortar impacts on its territory, whose origin still has not been clarified. Ankara, which has the second largest army in NATO after the United States, has requested support from its NATO partners.

The German desire for involvement in Syria is part of a general decision of increasing Western military involvement in the conflict. Last week, French President François Hollande, announced the shipment of weapons to the Syrian opposition, which it had already been secretly doing since the beginning of the conflict.

The confirmation of France’s involvement was carried out through the British secret services and the U.S., but even more effectively through Turkey and Gulf Arab regimes that oppose Damascus. Syria is in turn an important ally of Iran, which supplies fuel to China. The conflict, therefore has very complex geopolitical perspectives, because neither China nor Iran will be too happy to see Syria being destroyed. In fact, both China and Russia publicly condemned any formal attack against Turkey, although they haven’t act as forcefully when it comes to the dirty war being fought through paramilitary groups led by western countries.

“Patriot” missiles create the conditions for establishing a no-fly zone along the Turkish border. That umbrella, legally impossible today by Russian and Chinese opposition in the Security Council of the UN, would allow the new leadership of the newly formed Syrian insurgents under Western and Arabic patronage, to move into Syria and install a strong camp in the North region of the country. The arrival of the Syrian opposition leaders would create an alternative government and discount Assad’s led government as the official one.

In fact, what is being done in Syria today, is the same that was done in the Middle East before, when the British Empire used part of the Arab territory to create what we know today as Israel. Just as Israel did, a new enclave in Syria would result in either a globalist, military industrial complex oasis, or in the Turkish government annexing such territory in payment for its collaboration with the West. What the missile batteries will ensure, is that Syrian planes will not attack the north region so that terrorist groups working for the opposition will have safe heaven to launch attacks against the rest of the country.

German Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere, and the secretary general of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, believe in the plan to create a no-fly zone and said that the deployment of batteries and assistance to Turkey have “defensive ” character. “NATO is determined to defend the territorial integrity of Turkey,” said Rasmussen. Mr. de Maiziere forgets that it was Turkey, not Syria the country that began attacking the territorial integrity of Syria by hosting terrorist groups and western intelligence operatives on its border with Syria. His premise is disinformation.

Turkey has a long history of oppression of its Kurdish minority, a large minority of between nine and thirteen million people. With tens of thousands of victims to their own oppression of the Kurds would certainly be one of the great themes of human rights in Europe if it wasn’t for Turkey’s loyalty towards the West.

Capable of covering tens of kilometers of Syrian territory from its location Turkish batteries complicate a predictable action Syrian air forces against insurgent leadership when this is established there as you are encouraged to do so from Paris, Berlin and Washington. This is a central figure Riad Seif, a well-known in Berlin and living in the German capital, recently reported the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Seif is a member of an “international working group” led from the German foreign ministry plans to reform Syria’s economy after the fall of the current regime of Assad.

As in the case of the military intervention in Afghanistan, a majority of Germans now oppose sending missile batteries to Syria: 58%, according to a survey released yesterday. Only 31% approve such a measure. Rightfully so, as Germany has no business in attacking Syria or any other country that poses no threat to them or anyone else other than the terrorist groups that want to overthrow governments in the Middle East. Germany is acting as a copy cat of the United States and taking advantage of its NATO membership to show concern about a conflict that should be solved by its main actors, not western military agitators.

Human organ trafficking in Kosovo finds support in the West

by Vadim Trukhachev
Pravda.ru
January 17, 2012

Russia will investigate the facts of abuse of its citizens in Kosovo. Russian citizens fell victims to illegal human organ trafficking in Kosovo, and there is big politics involved in the story. The case is directly connected with accusations of illegal organ trafficking that have been set forth against Prime Minister of Albanian Kosovo, Hashim Thaci.

It goes about the events which took place in August 2008. The story took place at Medicus clinic, in Kosovo’s administrative center – Pristina. Two Russian citizens, who decided to become donors, had their left kidneys removed for further transplantation. The patients did not receive any money. The Kosovo Albanians used the same scheme to deceive the citizens of several other countries as well.

On July 14th, 2011, the Principal Investigative Administration of the Russian Federation filed a criminal case in connection with alleged human trafficking and causing severe bodily harm against unidentified members of a transnational criminal group. The group was trafficking Russian citizens to subsequently remove their organs, Vladimir Markin, an official spokesman for the Investigative Department said, The Kommersant newspaper wrote.

The scandal with illegal organ trafficking erupted in Kosovo in March 2008 – a month after the Albanian administration of the region declared independence single-handedly. Former Prosecutor of The Hague Tribunal, Carla Del Ponte, presented her book, “The Hunt” in which she wrote that Albanians took several hundreds of Serbs and other non-Albanians from the Serbian region to Albania in 1999. All those people had their organs harvested in a barbaric way. The would-be prime Minister of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, was aware of all that, Del Ponte wrote in her book.

Western officials preferred to turn a blind eye on Del Ponte’s book. It became quite a hardship for the author to have her book translated from Italian. However, it became impossible to silence the problem. In August 2008, the name of a medical institution – Medicus – appeared in the media. Representatives of the international peacemaking mission in Kosovo arrested several individuals and put two others on wanted list on the allegation of illegal organ trafficking.

The story received an extensive coverage. It was revealed that Kosovo-Albanian medics illegally transplanted a kidney from a 23-year-old Turkish national to a 70-year-old citizen of Israel. The latter was supposed to pay 120,000 euros. The Turkish man was arrested while he was leaving to his homeland. The Israeli patient was arrested at hospital.

The investigation showed that the organizers of the gruesome business were seeking potential donors in Russia, Kazakhstan, Moldavia, Azerbaijan and Turkey. They promised rewards of up to 20,000 euros to the donors, but none of them received anything.

Russian investigators will now have to find out who committed the grave crimes against the Russian citizens. There is definitely big politics involved in the story.

Carla Del Ponte has already announced her intention to participate in the investigation. Therefore, Russian detectives may technically join their efforts with the person, who had served as the chairwoman of The Hague Tribunal for many years.

It is worthy of note that Del Ponte was cooperating with her countryman Dick Marty, a Swiss parliamentarian. In December 2010, Marty delivered a report at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe about the issue of illegal human organ trafficking. Marty particularly claimed that the Prime Minister of the region, Hashim Thaci, was directly involved in the shady business.

Del Ponte said that she offered Marty to come to The Hague to see the evidence. However, it turned out that as many as 400 pieces of evidence (presumably the DNA of the victims) had been destroyed upon the judges’ instructions. The news came as a big surprise to Del Ponte.

Marty’s report was made in December 2010. The document said that Hashim Thaci, a field commander also known as “The Snake”, was in charge of a criminal group. The group was kidnapping people, conducting assassinations and selling human organs. Western leaders were informed about Thaci’s activities ten years ago, although they did nothing to stop him.

European officials believe that the investigation of the crimes committed in Kosovo should be conducted by the EU’s police mission in the region – EULEX. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon shares this point of view as well. Serbia and Russia believe that it is the United Nations that needs to play the main role in the investigation.

Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic stressed out that his country was prepared to cooperate with EULEX. However, he said, EULEX could not work outside Kosovo. To put it otherwise, the EU mission in Kosovo does not hold the necessary mandate and the territorial jurisdiction to conduct the investigation properly.

Jeremic paid attention to the problem of the safety of the witnesses on the cases connected with the Kosovo crimes. The key witness on the case of field commander Fathmir Limaj mysteriously died in Germany, for instance.

Many in the West do not want Hashim Thaci and other Kosovo Albanian figures to testify during the investigation of the human organ trafficking case. All of those figures are always welcome in Washington, Brussels, Berlin, etc. The US administration does not need the truth about the human organ trafficking for political reasons.

Fluorescentes Compactos contienen químicos que causan cáncer

Temores se han vuelto a encender por la seguridad de las bombillas de bajo consumo después que un grupo de científicos advirtió que contienen productos químicos que causan cáncer.

El informe recomienda que las bombillas no se deben dejar encendidas durante largos períodos, particularmente cerca de la cabeza de alguien, ya que emiten materiales tóxicos cuando se encienden.

Peter Braun, que llevó a cabo las pruebas en Alab, el Laboratorio de Berlín, dijo: “Para este tipo de sustancias cancerígenas, es importante que se mantengan lo más lejos posible del medio ambiente humano.”

Las bombillas son ya ampliamente utilizadas en la Unión Europea y el Reino Unido con lo que se pretende eliminar progresivamente la iluminación incandescente tradicional a finales de este año.

Pero los científicos alemanes afirman que varios productos químicos cancerígenos y toxinas se liberan cuando las lámparas compactas fluorescentes (LFC) se encienden, incluyendo el fenol, el naftaleno y estireno.

Andreas Kirchner, de la Federación de Ingenieros Alemanes, dijo: “smog eléctrico se desarrolla alrededor de estas lámparas.

“Yo, por lo tanto, sólo la utilizo muy poco. No deben usarse en áreas sin ventilación y definitivamente no en la proximidad de la cabeza.”

Bombillas de bajo consumo ‘podrían desencadenar el cáncer de mama’

Otro grupo de expertos británicos insistieron en que se necesita más investigación e instó a los consumidores a no entrar en pánico. Sin embargo, una gran cantidad de investigación se ha hecho al respecto en los últimos años debido que a la exposición a la radiación emitida por las lámparas se ha relacionado con dolores de cabeza y migrañas.

La doctora Michelle Bloor, profesora de Ciencias Ambientales de la Universidad de Portsmouth, dijo al Daily Express: “Otros estudios independientes tendrían que llevarse a cabo para respaldar la investigación presentada en Alemania.” Varios estudios independientes se han hecho. Medios de comunicación en Europa han entrevistado médicos y profesionales de la salud quienes también concluyen que la exposición diaria a los químicos emitidos de los fluorescentes es peligrosa. Ver video aquí. Y es que estos fluorescentes no solo se usan en Europa. Existe la intención de suplantar todos los bombillos incandescentes con este tipo de lámpara flurorescente. En algunos países como Estados Unidos, los consumidores han salido a comprar cantidades grandes de bombillos incandescentes ante la directiva del gobierno de prohibir su uso y comercialización.

El Departamento de Medio Ambiente insiste en que los bombillos son seguros, a pesar del hecho de que contienen pequeñas cantidades de mercurio que saldrían al aire si el cristal se rompe. Detalles en su página web dice: “las bombillas fluorescentes no son un peligro para el público.

“A pesar de que contienen mercurio, 5 mg por lámpara, no puede escapar de una lámpara que está intacta.

“En cualquier caso, la pequeña cantidad que figura en un foco de energía eficiente es probable que no cause daños, incluso si la lámpara se rompe.”

El un informe de Abraham Haim, profesor de biología en la Universidad de Haifa en Israel, se dice claramente que la exposición al mercurio y los otros químicos podría resultar en tasas más altas de cáncer de mama si se utilizan a altas horas de la noche.

Las bombillas de luz fluorescente podría dañar el medio ambiente si se desechan en basureros a cielo abierto.

El informe dijo que la luz que las lámparas fluorescentes compactas emiten imita mejor la luz del día, interrumpiendo la producción de la hormona melatonina en el cuerpo en las horas nocturnas.

La Asociación de Acción contra la Migraña ha advertido que la exposición a esta radiación podría desencadenar migrañas y los especialistas en cuidado de la piel han afirmado que su luz intensa podría exacerbar una serie de problemas existentes en la piel.

David Cameron: No More Power to Brussels

Times Online

David Cameron gave a blunt warning to Angela Merkel today that he would veto any attempt to reopen the Lisbon treaty to give the EU more power over national budgets.

Standing alongside the German Chancellor, Mr Cameron insisted that he wanted to see a strong single European currency but pledged to block moves to prop it up that involved a transfer of power from Westminster to Brussels.

The Prime Minister held robust and cordial talks with Mrs Merkel in Berlin where they also disagreed over hedge-fund regulation and Mr Cameron refused to reconsider his decision to pull the Conservatives out of the main centre-Right group in Europe.

The two leaders put on a relaxed show for the cameras, with Mrs Merkel’s mood buoyed by securing a “yes” vote in the German Parliament for the eurozone’s 750 billion euro bailout fund, to which Berlin will contribute up to €147 billion in loan guarantees.

But the convivial atmosphere could not mask their differences, with Germany leading calls at a finance ministers’ meeting in Brussels today for EU treaty changes to help restore confidence in the euro by introducing new sanctions and powers of co-ordination.

“There is no question of agreeing to a treaty that transfers power from Westminster to Brussels. That is set out 100 per cent clearly in the coalition agreement,” Mr Cameron said.

“Britain obviously is not in the euro and Britain is not going to be in the euro, and so Britain would not be agreeing to any agreement or treaty that drew us further into supporting the euro area.”

The Prime Minister added: “It goes without saying that any treaty, even one that just applied to the euro area, needs unanimous agreement of all 27 EU states including the UK, which of course has a veto. I think these are very important points to understand.”

His remarks left open the possibility that the 16 eurozone countries could introduce greater control from Brussels that applied just to them.

Mrs Merkel suggested that she had not given up on her desire to re-open the Lisbon treaty but played down its significance today. “There are certain ideas that Germany has tabled where treaty change plays a role. But this is the beginning. It is very early days as yet,” she said.

She added: “I have made it clear that we need to stabilise the euro but at a later stage we will be able to say what we can do and how should we do it.

“And then we will see what the majority will want and the interests of the eurozone.”

Mr Cameron showed that he had not given up trying to persuade Mrs Merkel to relax tough new proposed EU rules for hedge funds driven by Berlin and Paris.

“We do have our concerns because we do not think actually hedge funds were the cause of the problems in our financial markets and in our economies,” Mr Cameron said.

“We accept the need for regulation but it does need to be fair and proportionate.

“We have a particular issue about hedge funds that are based in other countries but have operations within one EU country and whether they would be able to access the so-called passporting system. So we have concerns; it is still being discussed.”

He refused to be drawn into open criticism of Mrs Merkel’s surprise decision this week to ban certain types of risky trading in shares and bonds, which began a slide of confidence in European shares that continued today.

Mr Cameron said: “Obviously we should respect each other’s decisions on these issues.”

“All I would say is this, and I’m sure there would be agreement on this: what matters is are we dealing with the real causes rather than just the symptoms?

“It seems to me that the cause of many of our problems in the European economies is excessive debt, excessive deficits, financial systems that haven’t worked, banking systems that have ground our economies down.

“Those are the problems. We’ve got to tackle the problems and get to the source of the problems and then actually we’ll find the symptoms will be less of a problem.”

Relations between Mr Cameron and Mrs Merkel were soured by the Conservative pull-out from the centre-Right European group over its support for closer political union in Europe.

Mrs Merkel is understood to have told him that she was saddened by the move which saw the Tories ally themselves with right-wing parties from Poland, the Czech Republic and Latvia.

Peter Ramsauer, the German Transport Minister and old Etonian, who forged links with Mr Cameron through their alma mater, said: “I have tried my very utmost best to try to keep things together. I said ‘David, can you imagine the great British Tories can be a partner of people like Topolánek from the Czech Republic? Never, ever.’ Maybe we can bring them together again. There are lingering hopes very far on the horizon.”
