Western pundits who blithely assert that the Islamic Republic of Iran can or will cooperate with the United States in Iraq against ISIL ignore a basic problem: How can the US be a serious partner in fighting a terrorist movement that Washington may have played a critical role in creating?

John Brennan’s long familiarity with Saudi Arabia, owing to the time he spent there as the CIA station chief in Riyadh in the 1990s and his knowledge of Saudi oil operations, has paid off. WMR has learned that Brennan’s agents inside Saudi Aramco convinced the firm’s management and the Saudi Oil Ministry to begin fracking operations to stimulate production in Saudi Arabia’s oldest oil fields. By pumping salt water into older wells, some at a depth of 3 to 6 thousand feet, an inordinate amount of pressure was built up. The CIA’s oil industry implants knew what would occur when the fracking operations began. Due to the dangerously high water pressure, the Saudis were forced continuously pump oil until the pressure became equalized. That process is continuing. If the Saudis ceased pumping oil, they would permanently lose the wells to salt water contamination. In the current “pump it or lose it” situation, the Saudis are forced to pump at a rate that may take up to 5 years before they can slow down production rates.

This is no joke. The United States relied on Israeli precedents and Tel Aviv’s violation of human rights to justify the torture of detainees by its own intelligence agencies, as was revealed in a report issued by the US Senate Intelligence Committee. Israeli media outlets have published highlights of the report.
Revelations about the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) use of torture are not over. A report issued by the US Senate Intelligence Committee reveals new information that was published yesterday by the Times of Israel website, stressing that torture is legitimate and legally based on the Israeli torture of detainees.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: One would think that Mouqawamah Music would be jumping for joy in the wake of this development but all that glitters is not gold and appearances can be deceiving. Even if there is a spat between the Goodluck Jonathan regime and Washington, the former’s ties with the usurping Zionist entity are very much intact, hence why it has undertaken the task to assassinate Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky — La Samah ALLAH, God forbid — at the criminal Talmudic enclave’s behest. On top of that, long before this particular incident, the Nigerian state allowed the Mossad and the CIA into its military-intelligence establishment for the purpose of training its security services. It was right around this time that car bombs began going off in various parts of Nigeria, with the blame being placed on “Boko Haram”, which Nigerians themselves say is nothing but a pretext that Goodluck Jonathan is using to obtain security grants from The West. This shadowy CIA-Mossad-Takfiri nexus in Nigeria, as one would expect, is being run by none other than Moshe Ram, the usurping Zionist entity’s Ambassador to Nigeria. Until ties with the illegitimate Jewish gangster “state” are cut, all “Israeli” and CIA personnel are expelled and the Nigerian security services become sovereign again, the instability in Nigeria will continue, whether it is at the hands of “Boko Haram” or some other mysterious terrorist proxy of the Jewish Imperium which seeks to dominate every inch of the African continent. ~ Jonathan Azaziah)

Ever since Francis Crick and James Watson discovered the double helix of DNA in the 1950s, intelligence agencies immediately began to discover ways to use the discovery of DNA for weapons research. Although it has always been assumed that intelligence services conducted MEDINT, or medical intelligence gathering, to discover what ailments were afflicting world leaders, it is also true that particular genetic traits of potential targets for assassination were being analyzed to develop genetic-specific weapons. A genetic susceptibilty of a targeted individual to develop cancer, heart disease, or other fatal or debilitating diseases would assist intelligence agencies to deliver particular “designer” genetic weapons. Continue reading Genetic assassination weapons in CIA’s quiver

It has been the policy of the Barack Obama administration to oppose the granting of independence by European colonial powers to any more territories in the Caribbean. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told the leaders and people of six Dutch territories in the Caribbean in July 2013 that the Netherlands was prepared to grant independence to the islands but that the United States was adamantly against the idea. Continue reading CIA Assassination Furthered Dutch Neo-Colonialism

David Cohen, the Under Secretary of Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, and his band of neocon Zionists who randomly freeze accounts and bring sanctions against foreign officials and businessmen who do not comport with neocon diktats have now targeted Yemeni leaders. Cohen has systematically brought sanctions against any leaders who pose a threat to Zionist designs, whether they are leaders of Yemen who reject a Zionist plan conceived by former U.S. ambassador to Yemen Gerald Feierstein to carve up Yemen into six provinces dominated by a pro-U.S. government, Hungarian anti-European Union nationalist politicians, or Russian-speaking leaders of Crimea and eastern Ukraine.

After the death a few weeks ago of the legendary editor of the Washington Post, Ben Bradlee, most obituaries celebrated his willingness to go after Richard Nixon. Charles Pierce at Esquire writes that Bradlee “rode the Watergate story when nobody else wanted it. It’s hard now even to imagine how very far out on the limb Bradlee went on that story.” But Pierce is largely alone in also noting that the Post under Bradlee “ultimately took a dive on Iran-Contra.” Bradlee himself described what he called a “return to deference” on the part of the press corps that took place under Ronald Reagan, saying that his colleagues were responding to a perceived public fatigue with journalists “trying to make a Watergate out of everything.” “We did ease off,” he said.

Iran Trip: September – October 2014
Marcel Proust said: “The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” During the past two decades, I visited Iran on numerous occasions staying 10-14 days at a time. This time around, I stayed for 2 months and heeding Proust, I carried with me a fresh pair of eyes. I discarded both my Western lenses as well as my Iranian lenses and observed with objective eyes. It was a formidable journey that left me breathless.
Part I – Women of the Islamic Republic of Iran
It is hard to know where to start a travel log and how to describe a newfound world in a few pages. However, given the obsession with the status of women, it is perhaps appropriate to start with the women in Iran as I perceived them.
Western media with help from feminists and Iranians living outside of Iran portray Iranian women as being “oppressed” — foremost because women in Iran have to abide by an Islamic dress code – hijab. Yes, hijab is mandatory and women choose to either wear either a chador or to wear a scarf. But what is crucial to understand is the role chador played in pre 1979 versus the post Revolution era.
