Sajjad Shaukat -- Israel Won the First Round of the French Election

French Election: 2017 French Presidential Election, Emmanuel Macron, Marine Le Pen
                                                                                By Sajjad Shaukat 
Recall that three days before the general elections in Spain, the train bombings in Madrid on March 11, 2004, which killed more than 200 people turned the election results in favour of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero whose Socialist Party won the elections, as he had said that Spain where the “US war has been deeply unpopular”, “would withdraw its troops.” While government led by the Prime Minister Jose Maria staunchly supported the American-led war in Iraq lost the election. General masses in Spain held the North African immigrants linked to Al-Qaeda for the train bombings, while the Prime Minister Aznar’s attempts to blame the attack on Basque terror group ETA backfired the voters.
Immediately after his victory in the Spanish elections, Zapatero had announced that Spain would withdraw its troops from Iraq. The statement of the Zapatero was greatly criticized by America that was made after the bomb blasts in Spain.
The victory of the Socialist Party in Spain was being called by some in Europe and America as a victory of terrorism, a precedent that offers Al-Qaeda or groups like it the notion that they can alter the democratic process with bombs and murder. A former member of the Spanish Parliament, Pedro Schwartz remarked, “Al-Qaeda won the election”.
Similarly, three days before France’s presidential elections, held on Sunday (April 23, 2017), a French policeman was shot dead and two others were wounded in central Paris on April 20, this year whena gunman wielding a machine gun leapt out of a car and opened fire on the Champs-Elysees, Paris’s most famous boulevard. Via its Amaq news agency,the Islamic State group (Also known as Daesh, ISIS, ISIL) claimed that the attack was carried out by “Abu Yousuf al-Baljiki (the Belgian) and he is one of the Islamic State’s fighters.”
French President Francois Hollande said that he was convinced the “cowardly killing” on the Champs Elysees boulevard was an act of terrorism.
Karim Cheurfi, a 39-year-old French national who was shot dead by the police was identified as the attacker. Prosecutors said that a note defending ISIS fell out of his pocket, although there was no previous evidence of radicalization.
After the shooting, the three main candidates canceled campaign events and instead made televised statements in which they competed to talk tough on security and vowed a crackdown on ISIS.
The incident brought issues of terrorism, security and immigration back to the forefront of the campaign. The ultra-nationalist and far-right candidate—the anti-immigration National Front leader Marine Le Pen demanded the closure of all Islamist mosques, repeating her call for Europe’s partly open borders to be closed. He has also called for campaigning generally to be suspended.
Le Pen’s opponents, meanwhile, urged France to stand against the hard-line rhetoric that has dominated her campaign.
Prime Minister Cazeneuve Bernard accused Le Pen of trying to capitalize on the attack by seeking to exploit fear “for exclusively political ends.”
As regards the results of the first round of the presidential election, the French Interior ministry announced on Monday (April 24) that centrist Emmanuel Macron of the independent En Marche party won 23.75 percent votes and the far-right’s Marine Le Pen of France’s National Front party won 21.53 percent votes.
According to a poll from Ipsos/Sopra Steria, “Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen will face one another in the final round of the French presidential election on May 7. Macron is expected to win the second round of the French election with 62 percent of the vote versus 38 percent for Le Pen.”

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China Paul Craig Roberts

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China


Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China
Paul Craig Roberts
Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense.
In previous posts in recent years I have pointed out both written documents and changes in US war doctrine that indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington’s demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and the refusal of Washington to cooperate with Russia on any issue have convinced the Russian government that Washington is preparing the Western populations for an attack on Russia. It is obvious that China has come to the same conclusion.
It is extremely dangerous to all of mankind for Washington to convince two nuclear powers that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against them. It is impossible to imagine a more reckless and irresponsible act. Yet this is precisely what Washington has done.
Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, Deputy Head of Operations of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington in pursuit of global hegemony is implementing an anti-ballistic missile system that Washington believes can prevent a Russian nuclear response to a US pre-emptive attack. http://www.fort-russ.com/2017/04/us-forces-preparing-sudden-nuclear.html
Careful studies have convinced the Russians that Washington is investing in and arranging components that have no other function than to devastate Russia and cripple the country’s retaliatory capability. In short, Washington is preparing to launch a nuclear war. https://www.rt.com/news/386276-us-missile-shield-russia-strike/
As I explained previously, the theory behind this insane scheme is that after America’s preemptive strike Russia will be so devastated that Russia would not retaliate with any remaining forces out of fear that Washington would launch a second major strike. Washington also plans to use agents in place to assassinate as many members as possible of the Russian government, thus leaving the government in confusion without leadership.
Yes, the insane American/Israeli neoconservatives are this determined to exercise hegemony over the world.
Yes, Washington is sufficiently criminally insane to risk the destruction of life on earth based on the supposition that Washington’s offense will work perfectly and Russia and China’s capabilities will be so degraded that no retaliatory response will occur.
One might hope that the American and Western populations would be outraged that Washington is so power-crazed that Washington is subjecting all life to such risks. But there is no sign of an anti-war movement. The Western leftwing has degenerated into Identity Politics in which the only threat comes from white heterosexual males who are portrayed as misogynists, racists, and homophopes. The Western leftwing is no longer war-conscious. Indeed, the leftwing has become diverted into such silly irrelevancies as transgender rights to toilets of their choice. The impotence of the Western left is so overwhelming that the left might as well not exist.
Where then is the hope? Russia and China cannot simply sit there and await America’s preemptive nuclear strike.
Possibly Washington does not intend a preemptive strike, but only to convince Russia and China that Washington’s preparations give Washington so much predominance in a conflict that Russia and China will submit to Washington’s hegemony. But this interpretation of Washington’s intention implies no less risk. Why would Russia and China wait for Washington to complete its preparations for war, preparations that permit Washington to turn Russia and China into puppet states?
The US military/security complex has clearly prevailed over Trump’s intention to normalize relations between the US and Russia, and anti-Russian venom continues to pour out of NATO and Washington’s European vassal states. The majority of the American people seem to have accepted the propaganda that Russia is the number one threat to the United States. With propaganda controlling the explanation, Washington’s aggressive actions are explained as defense against a threat and not as a policy that will end life on earth.
The chances are high that life on earth is approaching its end. The responsibility lies heavily on the American people, whose success, due to the mistakes of others, made Americans think that they are exceptional and privileged. Unaware of the inhumane threat to all life that is embodied in the neoconservative claim that Americans are exceptional and indispensable, the self-satisfied American public is unaware of the consequences of such hubris. Hubris is leading them, and the entire world, to slaughter in thermo-nuclear war.
The neoconservative claim of American exceptionalism is the identical claim made for Germans by Hitler. If Americans are indispensable, everyone else is dispensable and can be “bombed into the stone age” as one US government official put it, or nuked as Washington intends to do to Russia and China. The claim of American exceptionalism is not accepted by Russia and China. Therefore, the insane, crazed monsters who rule over the West in Washington are bringing life on earth to an end.
And there are no protests. The idiot British, the idiot Germans, the idiot French, Italians, Canadians, Australians, Belgians, Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, rally behind the insanity that is Washington.
And so apparently do the American people, a population stupid beyond all belief.

    Israel launched missiles at a site near Damascus International Airport in Syria, causing material damage, Syrian media cited a military source as saying Thursday.

    "One of the military facilities located to the southwest of Damascus International Airport was subjected to missile fire from hostile Israel," the SANA news service cited the source as saying.
    Lebanese media reported a large blast in the vicinity of the airport early Thursday, speculating that the explosion at the fuel depot could have been carried out by Israel.
    "The missiles were fired from the occupied territory, which led to explosions on the ground and property damage," the Syrian military source specified.
    Israeli officials have not commented on the issue yet. However, Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz, speaking to Army Radio from the United States earlier, hinted at what had happened in Damascus.
    "The incident in Syria corresponds completely with Israel's policy to act to prevent Iran's smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah," he said, without explicitly confirming Israel's involvement.

      US missile defense creates an opportunity for a covert nuclear missile strike against Russia, first deputy chief of the General Staff's Main Operational Department, Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir said on Wednesday.

      "The presence of US missile defense bases in Europe, missile defense vessels in seas and oceans close to Russia creates a powerful covert strike component for conducting a sudden nuclear missile strike against the Russian Federation," he said.
      The results of computer simulation confirm that the US missile defense is directed against Russia and China, Poznikhir said.
      "Russian representatives have often appealed to the US side, drawing their attention to the danger the global missile defense system poses to the strategic balance of forces in the world. But facts are ignored. The US claims its missile defense system is not directed against Russia and China. But… the results of computer simulation testify to the contrary," he said.

      The Chains of “anchorage” to the U.S.A.

      What a blessing it is to have an ally like Italy! This darling State that will not raise questions, pays its Nato contribution without raising an eyebrow and which will not hesitate to provide logistical aid, when invited to do so. It does not really matter that Italy is in the same boat as the rest of us: clueless as to the White House’s prevailing policy and thus the ultimate goal to which all its efforts will be directed. War continues to be waged, with men falling like flies. So yes, Italy’s loyalty cannot be questioned but what end does it really serve?

      In the newspapers and on the TV news, there is barely any coverage on the meeting between Trump and Gentiloni. Yet this was an event that was anything but formal. For Gentiloni, the challenge was to dispel the doubts on the attitude of his government to the new US President. Such doubts were the legacy of the Renzi government (in which Gentiloni was the Minister of Foreign Affairs). For the Renzi government had not sought to disguise that it was supporting Obama and Clinton against Trump in the [US] presidential elections.
      Gentiloni had done a fantastic job, confirming the “historic anchorage” of Italy to the United States, “the cornerstone of our foreign policy”, regardless of who is in office at the White House. President Trump gives credit to Italy, recalling that “more than 30,000 American soldiers and their families are based across your country” and that after the United States, Italy “is the second largest contributor of troops in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan”.
      The Italian contribution is actually far greater than what Trump acknowledges. This is evidenced by the increasing number of arms sent from U.S.A/Nato bases in Italy, to the Middle East, officially for the war against terrorism.
      Such consignments can be traced if you follow the journey of specific ships: for example, the cargo vessel Excellent (flying the Maltese flag, but manned by an Italian crew), hired from the Ministry of Defense, left on 19 April from Piombino having uploaded an enormous quantity of armoured “Lynx” and weapons. It then made a stopover two days later at Augusta. This is a strategic point for resupplying fuel and provisions. It then made its way across the Suez Canal to the port of Gedda in Saudi Arabia. Here on 9 April, the US ship Liberty Passion had already docked. This ship was coming from Livorno, launching a regular monthly service for the transport of weapons from the US base of Camp Darby to the Middle East for the wars in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

      ROMINA - FRANCEZII SE SCUFUNDÃ de Thierry Meyssan


      Francezii se Scufundä


      Ne aflam în prezenta unei inversiuni istorice în Franta, unde vechiul spectru politic se desface în tãndãri, si unde apare o noua fisurã. Avînd în vedere intensa propaganda mediaticã care a atins tara, francezii nu înteleg referintele esentiale, si se agata de liniile rosii care nu mai exista. Cu toate acestea, faptele sunt clare, si sunt de prevazut anumite evolutii.

      Felicitat în calitate de noul presedinte francez, Emmnuel Macron
      primeste personalitati ale Spectacolului, si în special, a lui CAC 40,
      în noaptea primului round al alegerilor.
      Aici poate fi vazut, în conversatie cu un prieten, bancherul Jacques Attali.

      Dupa o campanie electorala foarte agitata, francezii l-au selectionat pe Emmanuel Macron (sprijinit de orasele din centru) si Le Pen, ( sprijinita de zonele suburbane si rurale), pentru cel de-al doi-lea round al alegerii presedintelui.

      Începînd din acest moment, aproape toti candiatii derutati, cu exceptia lui Jean-Luc Mélenchon – si aceasta nu este o întîmplare – au apelat la sprijinul lui Macron, care ar trebui sa fie ales cu usurinta.

      Cele doua mari partide istorice care au guvernat Franta de la începutul celei de-a Cincea Republica, republicanii (ex-gaulistii) si Partidul Socialist (ex-partidarii lui Jaurés), au fost derutati. În timp ce un recent venit ''Înainteaza''! (fapt evidentiat , în special, în occidentul liniei Le Havre-Marseille), si ajunge pe vîrful scenei înfruntînd Frontul National (localizat la estul acestei linii).
