Kristallnacht in Palestine

Virtually daily, Israeli security forces attack, kill, or injure Palestinian civilians with impunity. They also destroy their property by bombing, shelling, bulldozing and uprooting it. At the same time, Israeli authorities wink and nod, occasionally decry, yet do nothing to deter extremist settler crimes against Palestinian civilians. Most often, they're given license to terrorize, vandalize and commit physical violence with impunity. Rarely ever is anyone held accountable. The same holds for its own security forces, no matter how outrageous their crimes.

The US Air Force’s New Mind Control Wing

USAF "Human Effectiveness Directorate" logo The use of RF Directed Energy Weapons is roughly similar to other ‘electroshock’ weapons. Just as the cattle prod-like ‘taser’ has been widely adopted in American law enforcement to temporarily disable (or permanently kill) those targeted, pulsed microwave directed energy weapons have been covertly adopted by the US military for remote incapacitation of human targets, such as political dissidents. More properly classified as weapons of electronic warfare--a type of information war--RFDEW are used for the “jamming” of “enemy information systems,” which also happen to be human brains.

Masked Imperialism: US-Obama-Doctrine !

US-Power Front in Global War ... Obama Doctrine: Imperialism Masked as «Humanitarian Interventionism» ......... The Obama administration, in yet another display of the use of Orwellian language, has embarked on a military doctrine called “Mass Atrocity Prevention” (MAP), the Pentagon operational plan to implement the White House’s “R2P” or “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine. Essentially, the Pentagon doctrine is crafted to militarily support the intervention of regional and worldwide international forces operating under the umbrella of NATO, UN, the African Union, the Organization of American States (OAS), the Arab League, and other organizations in the name of “humanitarian” intervention to prevent widespread massacres. The doctrine’s first major test case was in Libya, where NATO forces, in support of Western- and Saudi/Gulf potentate-backed rebel forces, ousted the 42 year-old regime of Muammar Qaddafi.
