Sony Hacked Movie : "The Interview"

Sony entertainment inc. declared that the movie was hacked. Thereafter, the FBI accused North Korea for penetrating Sony servers. So far, there is no evidence for N. Korean involvement. It's all about the intentional stereotypical image of "axis of evil" regimes by the huge Western corporate media.
"Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them."

Fabrication And Misinformation Of Wall Street Journal

Just few days ago, Wall Street Journal reproduced a new scenario for the assassination of Al-
Assad's brother-in law, Assef Shawkat.

Assef Shawkat was, indeed, one of the strongest regime's men in Syria. And he was among the high-ranked officials who witnessed both Bashar's and his father's eras. Moreover, he was Bashar al-Assad's brother-in-law.

WSJ reported an ill-cited article, which can be considered as one of Hollywood's scenarios. In summary, The report included the following ideas:

(1) Hawks of Syrian regime killed Bashar al-Assad's brother-in law, Assef Shawkat.
(2) The mentioned event was actually the turning point in the Syrian crisis, by which 'the regime's killing machine was accelerated'.
(3) The defected official and al-Assad's old friend, Manaf Tlas was: (a) a witness (b) one of the 'pigeons' by urging al-Assad for conversation with the protesters.
(4) All of the report's sources of information are enemies of Al-Assad:
(a) the former US Ambassador to Syria, Robert Ford.
(b) Manaf Tlas: the mentioned defected Syrian official. He also the son of former defense minister (i.e., Al-Assad's the father companion, and one of the regime's figures)
(c) Lebanese politician, Walid Joumblatt. One of Al-Assad's 'recent' enemies.

Here is another narration (in Arabic), taken from Rai Al-Youm news website [ my edited translation]:

"In March 2012, The Coalition of "Ansar Al-Islam" in Damascus and its countryside, which included "Lewa'a Al-Islam", led by Zahran Aloush and..  "al-Furqan" and "Hamza bin Abdul Muttalib", was watching the security chiefs in order to eliminate them, this was not to happen without cooperation of one of the bodyguards working in the place of the meeting or an employee in the office of a senior officials. They recruited one of them, a bodyguard of Mohammed Saeed Bekheitan, Secretary-General of  al-Ba'ath Party and assigned him to poison food leaders gathered in the office of Bakhtian they were: Advisor Bashar al-ssad's military affairs and the leader of the "crisis cell" Hassan Turkmani, and Interior Minister Mohammad ASha'ar, and the head of the National Security Bureau Hisham Bakhtiar, Defense Minister Daoud Rajha, Deputy defense Minister Assef Shawkat, and Director of State Security Ali Mamlouk, and one of the military leaders in Damascus, Major General Salah al-Naimi...

The opposition announced the death of the regime figures -suspiciously- before it was clear to them.
No I thought I heard they were making up the news, but they thought that the process already has been successfully completed, and after the regime's denial, and the appearance of Asha'ar and Turkmani on the official Syrian television, the only explanation is that the client had been duped the "Coalition of Ansar Al-Islam", and did not implement the poison.

They [Syrian opposition] tried again and they hired one of the bodyguards of the President of the National Security Office Hisham Bakhtiar that insinuates an explosive device at the earliest meeting of the "crisis management cell".

In July 2012, Bakhtiar and Defense Minister Dawoud Rajiha and his deputy Assef Shawkat and the head of "crisis management cell", Hassan Turkmani were killed, while commander of the fourth division of the Republican Guard, Maher al-Assad and Interior Minister Mohammad ASha'ar and head of the investigation branch of the State Security Hafez Makhlouf and Assistant Regional Secretary and Chief Financial Office Ba'ath Party Mohammed Saeed Bekheitan did not die. One of the four wounded, as was rumored that the former head of the Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman, or the commander of the Iranian al-Quds Force of Kassem Suleiman died in the bombing.

The Wall Street Journal's narration that Bashar al-Assad's regime masterminded the assassination of Assef Shawkat is ridiculous, though the President can remove him [Assef Shawkat]  from his position "with a stroke of a pen!", as Bashar al-Assad did when sacked the head of military intelligence Hassan Khalil in 2005 and replaced him with Assef Shawkat, then sacked Shawkat later on, while Shawkat did not hold a leadership position, but he was deputy defense minister Daoud Rajha.."

McCain's 'Many Thanks'

  • "We should thank Saudi Arabia, which allowed the price of a barrel of oil to fall to the point that it significantly affected the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, [and] the [Russian] economy," McCain said. "It has nothing to do with the actions of the U.S. president," he added.
  • “Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar,” John McCain told CNN’s Candy Crowley in January 2014. “Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar, and for our Qatari friends,” the senator said once again a month later, at the Munich Security Conference.

Editor's Comment:
I hope not to disappoint you, folks. But I enjoy reading for hawkish elites. entertains me!
They usually have low IQ (by the way, is there any relationship between fundamentalism and low IQ level?). Yet, they (such as McCan) are usually frank.

So basically, he thanks (1) god, (2) Saudis (especially Prince Bandar) and (3) Qatar... why not (4) ISIS too?

The U.S. Sanctions' Policy

The U.S. sanctions on Cuba failed to tame Cuban leadership, according to the U.S. president Obama himself. After the U.S.-Soviet nuclear escalation at the beginning of 1960s ,CIA  engineered a plot to overthrow Cuban president Fidel Castro. Although the CIA utilized some Cuban opponents (most of them reside in Florida), the result was failure of Pig of Bay Invasion.  Does this story remind us of CIA-engineered Syrian opponents?
Any way, Obama has finally admitted failure of sanctions policy against Cuba. Meanwhile, the U.S. congress is preparing to issue further sanctions against Russia.
I agree with this title from Huffington Post:

Hamas-Iran Relationship

My personal opinion on "Hamas-Iran relation" is that the relationship will never be permanent or stable, because both sides based their concept on different and  even contradicted sectarian ideology, although they share common interests, such as liberation of Palestine. Moreover, Hamas's leadership restored ties after Hamas's severe funding crisis, due to multi-lateral siege over Gaza strip.

“At this time the administration does not intend to impose sanctions under this law but act gives the administration additional authorities that could be utilized if circumstances warranted,” he added.

Does Israel Prepare For Post-Abbas Era?

Former PA's chairman Yasser Arafat was assassinated by radio-active Polonium, according to Al-Jazeera investigative report. Arafat was also considered as "moderate" Palestinian chairman and he jointly received Peace Nobel Prize with Shimon Peres.

Earlier this year, Ma'ariv newspaper reported that ousted Fatah leader Mohammad Dahlan met Netanyahu's special envoy Yitzhak Molcho. But Dahlan denied that later on.

A London-based Arabic news website, Rai Al-Youm reported that Dahlan besides former Palestinian PM Salam Fayyad and the controversial Yasser Abed Rabo met U.S. secretary of state John Kerry in UAE. The meeting which exaggerated anger of president Mamoud Abbas, according to Rai Al-Youm.

The prominent Israeli professor Yaakov Peri, Israel’s minister of science, entered politics late in life. His primary career was in the Shin Bet — the General Security Service said:
"Who’s going to succeed him [ PA's president Mahmoud Abbas aka Abu Mazen]?" , reporter Asked.
Peri Answered:
"That’s a very big problem. There are big divisions in the Palestinian leadership today. And they still use the Arafat system that anyone who makes trouble will get pushed aside and then he becomes a kind of opposition headquarters. So he has Dahlan on the outside. He has Rajoub, who’s not an oppositionist, but is certainly looking at the chair… Then there’s Rami Hamdallah, the prime minister, who is pleasant and moderate. And of course there’s former prime minister Salaam Fayyad, who the Americans would greatly want, but Salaam Fayyad is not that interested, in my opinion".

Algemeiner reported on Feb, 6 this year:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is covertly seeking out other potential Palestinian Arab peace partners to negotiate with – instead of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli daily Ma’ariv reported on Thursday. The news comes as current Israeli-PA framework agreement talks enter their seventh month.
In 2004, PA's chairman Arafat was assassinated after he was considered "obstacle to peace effort" by former U.S. president George W. Bush and Ariel Sharon as well.

ِApparently, Palestinian president Abbas bothers Israel these days, by going to the UN to internationalize the Palestinian cause, even though the U.S. regime clearly threatens to rise VETO against any pro-Palestine resolution. And the Israelis are preparing a further "moderate" Palestinian to replace Abbas's position.

The U.S. And Turkish Involvement In Syria

Al-Nusrah Front (also known as Jabhat Al-Nusrah), one of al-Qaeda affiliated militias posted a picture and video of its fighters using an American-made BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missile on an Assad regime tank.

"The photograph and video were distributed on Twitter by Al Nusrah's official page for Idlib operations. The TOW was used during the recent fighting in Wadi al Daif which, until this morning, was a major regime base in the countryside of Idlib. The fighting at Wadi al Daif was part of a larger jihadist offensive on two regime bases near the Idlib city of Maa'rat al Nu'man. The other base, Al Hamadiya, is also reported to have fallen to members of Ahrar al Sham, an al Qaeda ally, as well as to members of Al Nusrah and Free Syrian Army elements."
Washington Post reported:
In early November, the al-Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra ousted two U.S.-supplied moderate factions, Harak Hazam and the Syrian Revolutionary Front, from their strongholds in northern Idlib province. Although al-Nusra was thought to have seized significant caches of equipment during the fighting, the exact nature of those arms has been unclear.
On Monday, however, a Twitter account associated with Jabhat al-Nusra posted a photo of a TOW anti-tank guided missile system, a formidable weapon used against armored targets.
The Turkish role:
Previously on last September, Turkish daily newspaper reported:
"Syrian rebel group Liwa al-Tawhid released 50 members of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), including the family of a late leader, in a swap deal that ended with the release of 49 hostages abducted from Turkey’s consulate in Mosul."

Recently, a conflict of interests appear between the U.S. and Turkish regimes, after the U.S. regime refused Erdogan's appeal by applying no-fly zone near Turkey's borders, although they share the same target which is to overthrow the Syrian regime.

McCain's Brilliant Ideas

McCain is vocally against the C.I.A. brutal torture methods and he clearly expressed that during his last media appearance. However, as a hawkish American elite, he said:
We “are obliged by history,” McCain said, “by our nation’s highest ideals and the many terrible sacrifices made to protect them, by our respect for human dignity to make clear we need not risk our national honor to prevail in this or any war. We need only remember in the worst of times, through the chaos and terror of war, when facing cruelty, suffering and loss, that we are always Americans, and different, stronger, and better than those who would destroy us.

Editor's Comment:
Yup, McCain is totally right as the U.S. regime did not throw the first (and only) atomic bomb throughout history which caused long-standing congenital anomalies in Hiroshima. And Iraq was actually invaded to spread democracy in the middle east, but not to ACQUIRE oil-rich country ruled by anti-American dictator. And Cuba is still under siege because the Castros are evils and the neighboring Cuban people live wealthy (actually they are healthy nation with almost the best health system worldwidely). Finally, the U.S regime did not divide the Korean peninsula (northern and southern), neither bombed Sudan, Libya nor Somalia.
N.B. I'm talking about the U.S. corpocracy regime which is far away from the people of America.
