The Hijackers by Hugh Roberts

Being a deep historical overview of Syria and the Islamic State in the context of the “deep state” of criminals who manipulate governments and eventually give rise to populist movements.

Western policy has been a disgrace and Britain’s contribution to it should be a matter of national shame.

The case for changing this policy, at least where Syria is concerned, is overwhelming.

Owl: WWIII? Strong Signals Emergent UPDATE 3 Ukraine Death Wish?

Who? Who?

Who? Who?

This author has been pretty good over the many months I have been reading his site. He admits to not being able to confirm events. Combine this with China devaluing its currency, the vulnerability of the US to power black-outs, forest fires, water disasters such as the recent gold mine poisoning, and you have the perfect storm — to include WWIII as cover for a final Wall Street looting of the US economy. There are too many emerging signals suggesting that September onwards could be quite troubling for the USA.
