Blogger, reacting to proposed coup in Venezuela:

''I do not recognize Trump, as President of the
USA. I recognize only the legitimate President
- Netanyahu. ''







Nietzsche:

“Madness is rare in individuals, but in
groups, parties, nations, and ages,
it is the rule.”






Slavoj ZIzek:

Until the rich world
thinks 'one world,'
migration will
intensify''






In September 2018, both Al Skeilbiyyeh and Mhardeh

were attacked by Western-backed armed groups, 
who targeted the towns with prohibited cluster
munitions. In Mhardeh, thirteen civilians were
martyred, as a result of this heinous attack,
which was barely acknowledged by the
western media, or the international
community.

Mhardeh resident, Shadi Yousef Shehda, lost
his mother Afifeh, his wife Rama, his eldest
daughter Maria, a 6-year-old son, Fadi and
his two-year-old daughter, Stefani, who
were
martyred on September 7th, 2018
--- “sliced to pieces” by the missiles
launched by the extremist groups.


“I offered to my mother, Syria, the most precious things
in my life - my mother, my wife and my three children -
but, despite this, I celebrated Christmas in Mhardeh, 
because Mhardeh is the ‘Sun City”, the source of
life. In spite of everything, I am ready to sacrifice
myself, for Mhardeh and for Syria. My family
watered the soil with their blood and I am
ready to do the same”






During his Christmas Eve sermon

in 1967, Martin Luther King said:

“We must either learn to live together
as brothers, or we are going to
perish
together, as fools”.






Russia's Foreign Miister, Lavrov, on the
US' recent statements 'de-legitimising'
Venezuela's socialist government:

“Very alarming - and it indicated that the
 US policy of destabilizing governments
 it does not like, remains a priority.”






Cesar Chavez:

“I became a vegetarian after realizing
that animals feel afraid, cold, hungry
and unhappy, like we do. I feel very
deeply about vegetarianism, and
the animal kingdom. It was my
dog, Boycott, who led me... to
question the right of humans
to eat other sentient beings.”






Cesar Chavez:

“We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard
to help people understand, that the animals are
fellow creatures, that we must protect them
and love them, as we love ourselves.”






Cesar Chavez:

“We know we cannot be kind to animals, until we
stop exploiting them - exploiting animals in the
name of science, exploiting animals in the
name of sport, exploiting animals in the
name of fashion, and, yes, exploiting
animals, in the name of food.”





The Quran (49:11):

"O you who believe! No people shall ridicule other people,
for they may be better than they. Nor shall any women
ridicule other women, for they may be better than
they. Nor shall you slander one another, nor
shall you insult one another with names.
Evil is the return to wickedness, after
having attained faith. Whoever
does not repent - these are
the wrongdoers."








Seneca:

“For greed, all of nature, is too little.”








US State Department mandarin George Kennan, in 1948:

“We have about 50 percent of the world’s wealth, but
only 6.3 percent of its population. Our real task, in
the coming period, is to devise a pattern or

relationships, which will permit us to
maintain this position of disparity.
To do so, we'll have to dispense
with all sentimentality and
day
dreamings.









John Wight:

''We have arrived at a moment
when the continuation of the
 status quo, is death itself.''








Oscar Wilde, on the Death Scene
 in Charles Dickens “Little Nell”:

“You'd have to have
 a heart of stone,
 not to laugh.”







Hazrat Inayat Khan:

''Love itself is the healing power and the remedy for all pain. 

                
''There is no greater power than love. All strength comes
with the awakening of love in the heart. If there is any
protecting influence in the world, it is no other than
love. In all aspects of life, wherever we find
protection, its motive is always love, and
no one can have trust in any protection,
however great, except the protection
that love offers. If a giant were to
frighten a child, the child would
say, 'I will tell my mother...' The
strength and power of any man
is too small in comparison with
love's protection, which the
mother affords her child.
Love can heal, better
than anything in
the world.''








Darius Shahtahmasebi legal and political analyst, currently
specialising in immigration, refugee and humanitarian law:

"The US is still offended by the idea that it could
possibly be doing anything wrong, at any time."





Laurie Calhoun, author of ‘We Kill Because We
 Can’, an in-depth look at the US’ drone war:

''Apostate operators and sensors have become
 disenchanted with the profession, and are
 plagued by feelings of regret and guilt -
for having agreed to kill, on command, 
people who never threatened them, 
personally, with death.''






Christopher Aaron, ex image analyst at Langley,
Virginia & in Afghanistan as intelligence liaison:

''The cognitive dissonance amongst those who work
 in an office, killing people on the other side of the
planet, remotely, and then leave work and go to
the grocery store, the gym, or to their families,
 can only be suppressed for so long.''





Heather Linebaugh, high-school graduate, looking for
a way out of rural Pennsylvania, now 'whistle blower':

“I was under the impression that America was saving
the world --- like, that we were Big Brother and we
were helping everyone out. It’s so primitive, raw,
stripped-down death. This is real. It’s not a joke.”





Heather Linebaugh, who later committed suicide:

''You see someone die because you said it was okay
 to kill them. I was always shaking. Sometimes I
would just go to the bathroom and just sit on
the toilet. I mean, just sit there in my
uniform, and just cry.''






Christopher Aaron, ex image analyst at Langley,
Virginia & in Afghanistan as intelligence liaison:

''How many more ‘terrorists’ have we now created
from those impressionable boys, who see the
prophecy of their teacher come true?''






Hazrat Inayat Khan:

''Here are two things: knowing and being. It is easy

to know truth, but most difficult to be truth. It is
not in knowing truth, that life's purpose
is
accomplished; life's purpose is
accomplished, in being truth.''







Satanist doctrine:

"Do what thou wilt be
the whole of the law."








Anonymous, from the sixties:

Ahhhhhh those were the days ..good music...
good pot ..cold beer and sweet hippie chicks
dressed in loose sun dresses, no bras, and 
sweet hairy pussies!!!







Book of James, (Jesus' brother), ch1, vs 6-9:

"But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.  For
he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven
with the wind and tossed.  For let not that man
(or woman) think that he shall receive any
thing of the Lord.  A double -minded man
is unstable in all his ways."








Jeannette Rankin:

“You can no more win a war,
 than you can win an
 earthquake.”








John White:

''Something of the order of 70-80,000 Syrian soldiers
have perished. This constitutes a staggering toll, in
a country whose army stood at 220,000 at the start
of the conflict. More crucially, it is a toll that could
not possibly have been borne, without the solid
support of the Syrian people for the army and
its government, led by President Bashar
 Assad, over these past eight years.''







Blogger:

''Just how many wars has Islam started
in the past 1,000 years, or so?  They
have been attacked, more often
than not, by Christians... All
the religions are foolish but
Christianity is particularly
so, when it preaches
peace, yet creates
 endless war.''






Prophet Muhammad (SAW):

“O mankind, your Lord is One and your father is one.
You all descended from Adam, and Adam was
created from the earth. He is most honoured
among you, in the sight of God, who is
most upright. No Arab is superior to
a non-Arab, no coloured person to
a white person, or a white person
to a coloured person, except by
Taqwa (piety).”







Hindustani saying:

''No matter how much wealth you have, if you do
 not have the treasure of virtue, it is of no use.''







George Washington:

They, the Jews, work more effectively against us,
than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred
times more dangerous to our liberties and
the great cause we are engaged in…
It is much to be lamented that each
state, long ago, has not hunted
them down as pests to society
and the greatest enemies we
have, to the happiness
 of America."








Thomas Jefferson, 1798:

''It is true that we are completely under the saddle
 of Massachusetts and Connecticut, and, that
they ride us very hard, cruelly insulting
our
feelings, as well as exhausting
our
strength and substance.''








Thomas Jefferson, just before his election as President:

''[S]eeing that we must have somebody to quarrel with,
I had rather keep our New England associates for that
purpose, than to see our bickerings transferred to
others. They are circumscribed within such
narrow limits, and their population so full,
their numbers will ever be the minority,
and they are marked, like the Jews,
with such perversity of character,
as to constitute, from that
circumstance, the natural
division of our parties.''








James H. Thornwell, 1859:

''There is at work in this land
a Yankee spirit and an
American spirit.''








Clyde Wilson:

''It was not the Union that our Southern forefathers
seceded from, but the deadly combination of
Yankee greed and righteousness.''








Sergei Glazyev, a key adviser to President Putin:

“if the US keeps contradicting international law…
the first measure we would have to take,
together with China and other countries
who are suffering from US aggression,
would be to get rid of the dollar as
the key international currency.”








Sergei Glazyev, a key adviser to President Putin:

“China... has created the most progressive system
in the world for directing economic development, 
combining planning with market self-regulation 
and subordinating private initiative to the
needs of raising the general welfare,
through an increased volume and
efficiency of production.”








 China's Foreign Minister, Wang Yi:

“The great problem, for the world community, is
the struggle against the unilateral world order.
The BRICS countries are responsible for
forming a common position, and 
a joint position, against the
unilateral world order.”






Sun Tzu's The Art of War, says:

''A wise man shall never seek war,
both sides will lose many men,
regardless of who wins
 or loses.''






Hazrat Inayat Khan:

He who is afraid of vice is subject to vice;
He who is addicted to vice is its captive;
He who acquaints himself with vice
is the pupil of vice;
He who learns his lesson from vice,
who passes through it, and rises
above it, is master and
conqueror.






Andre Vltchek:

''Many 'progressive' Western intellectuals are
denouncing global injustice, and Western
(North) imperialism - but are unwilling to
struggle or even vote for, an egalitarian
planet. In a way, there is no real left in
the West, anymore. The real left, is
internationalist. The Western left
is only interested in & struggles
for, privileges for its people: 
(shorter working hours,
better medical care,
higher wages, etc.),
mostly at the expense
of the poor and semi-
colonized world, or
call it, the 'South'.''








Costantino Ceoldo, freelance writer:

''If it is true that none of the US imperial adventures
of the last few years, would have been possible,
without the help & complicity of the European
Union, it is also true, that European rulers
belong to the same Superclan, that is
on its way to its own end.''








Dmitry Babich:

''The EU has lost every referendum they
have organised in the last fifteen years.''








Karl Marx, in 1882:

“An international movement of the proletariat
is possible only among independent nations.
The little bit of republican internationalism
-- between 1830 and 1848 -- was grouped
around France, [and] increased French
chauvinism, in such a way, as to cause
the world-liberating mission of France,
and with it, France’s native right to be
in the lead, to get in our way, every
day, even now.”








Peter Koenig, international observer for the
Presidential Economic Advisory Commission:

"…It is absolutely clear who is behind the food
and medicine boycotts (empty supermarket
shelves), and the induced internal violence
[in Venezuela]. It is a carbon copy of what
the CIA, under Kissinger’s command, did
in
Chile, in 1973, which led to the murder
of
the legitimate and democratically

elected President Allende, and to
the Pinochet military coup."









Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Minister:

“Let me control the media, and I will
turn any Nation into a herd of Pigs”.








John Bolton, in 2002, threatening Jose Bustani, 
the head of the OPCW and his family, because
 he ran the OPCW as a neutral organisation:
 
“You have 24 hours to leave the organisation, and if
you don’t comply with this decision by Washington,
we have ways to retaliate against you. We know
where your kids live. You have two sons in
New York.”








José Bustani, retired Brazilian diplomat and former head of
the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons:

“My family is aware of the situation, and we are
prepared to live with the consequences

of my decision.”








José Bustani,:

“The problem with this man is that he’s so ideological,
so brutal; he doesn’t open the door to dialogue.
I don’t know how people can work for him.”








José Bustani:

“John Bolton is a bully.”








Blogger on RT:

''Remember also, that Bustani stood up to him, 
but the US led a coup & drummed up support
to have Bustani removed, by threatening
those who did not support the US, with
losing US aid. Bustani left with dignity
and respect. One can only assume,
with the reports on Syria and the
UK, that Bustaini's replacement
was in the pocket of the US, as
 is the new head of the OPCW.''






 

Andre Vltchek:

''Samir believed that all the evil comes from
global capitalism. That it is a direct result 
- a bi-product - of capitalism. I have been
arguing that it's what Carl Gustav Jung
called the 'pathological culture of the
West', that Western culture is,
essentially, sick, and that
both imperialism and
extreme forms of
capitalism, are
the direct and
logical result,
of such a
culture.''








Adolph Hitler on April 13th, 1923, in Munich:

"Always, before god and the world, the stronger
 has the right to carry through what he wills.
The whole of nature is a mighty struggle
between strength and weakness, an
eternal victory of the strong, 
over
the weak."








Benjamin Netanyahu, August 29th 2018,
at the Negev Nuclear Weapons Centre:

"The weak crumble, are slaughtered and are
erased from history, while the strong, for
good or for ill, survive. The strong are
respected, and alliances are made
with the strong, and, in the end,
peace is made, with
the strong."








Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov
speaking at the news conference with
his Turkish counterpart, August 15th:

“The dollar’s days as a global
  trade currency, are numbered”. 






Major General, Qiau Liang, in 2016:

“The US needs a large ‘capital return’, to support the
daily life of the Americans, and the US economy.
Under such circumstances, [any nation that]
blocks the return of capital to the US, is the
enemy of the US. We must understand this
matter, clearly. To effectively contain the
US, other countries shall think more, on
how to cut the capital flow to the US,
while formulating their strategies”.






Tyler Durban:

''With a strong dollar, trading partners’ currencies devalue,
their interest and capital payments soar and, traditionally,
they are pushed to the IMF for a dose of austerity and the
sale of their national assets. This is the ‘play’, which
Russia and China intend to end. They have set up
alternatives to the Word Bank and to the IMF,
to which Turkey may have recourse –
instead of being forced into an
IMF programme.''






Saint Alexander Nevsky, defender of Russia:

  "God is not in force, but in Truth."






Andre Vltchek, philosopher, novelist,
filmmaker and investigative journalist:

''Historically and culturally, Islam is a socialist religion.
In many countries, in almost all of them, because of
the West and its Saudi allies, Islam has been
derailed, kidnapped and used against
the people.''







Buddha:

''There are 3 things you cannot hide.
The sun, the moon and the truth.''







Andre Vltchek:

''The West was mainly to blame for this state of Islam.
London, particularly, has been supporting and
spreading Wahhabism. Both Washington and
London, kept overthrowing one socialist
Muslim government after another, from
Iran to Indonesia and Afghanistan,
putting on the throne, the most
regressive, brutal and greedy
rulers, who have been using
Islam, as a cover for their
collaboration with
 the West.''






Philip Giraldi:

''Yulia Skripal has recently announced, that
she intends to return to her home in Russia
- leading to the conclusion, that even one
of
the alleged victims, does not believe
the
narrative being promoted by the
British
and American governments.''









George Galloway, MP for 30 yrs, film-maker, writer & orator:

''The media here have completely ignored the statement
of the head of the anti-terrorist squad of Scotland Yard -
that he had "No" evidence of Russian state involvement
in the crime in Salisbury, preferring instead, the cheap
barroom brawling of the British prime minister on the
floor of the House of Commons, cheered on by the
vulgar popular press and their more refined elder
sisters in the upmarket papers and on the BBC.''








 Daniel, blogger (edited):

''It's out of fashion to hate jews today. Muslims have
taken over that position, as the new target for the
misdirected anger of the ignorant and brain-
washed masses. And whether there were
1.5 million jews killed by Nazi Germany,
or 6 million, doesnt really matter. It was
horrible. It was bad. But that generation
is almost gone now: there is no excuse
for zionists who use this tragedy as
a
justification to act against the

palestine people, exactly as
the nazi germans acted
against the jews, in
the '30s and '40s.'' 






 Daniel, blogger (edited):

''I am more outraged about the fact that
many uneducated people, today, only
know about jews being persecuted
and murdered by the nazis.''






 Daniel, blogger (edited):

''The first wave of victims were handicapped and
chronically ill people, then they went after the
social democrats, the communists, the
labour unions, priests, various
christian sects.''








 Daniel, blogger (edited):

''Attacks against ethnic/cultural minorities
were not only against jews. The romani
people suffered more than the jews - if
you look at the percentage of the
entire ethnic population killed.''








 Daniel, blogger (edited):

''The victims were many. In Mein Kampf,
Hitler
makes a list of the enemies
he wanted to destroy.
The
first was the communists.
Second,
came the jews.
Food for thought.''






 Daniel, blogger (edited):

''Read more about history, people, and don't just look
at state or corporate approved documentaries,
spewed out by the old mainstream media.''








Andre Vltchek:

''[China] is smeared, in the West (North) by both
the mainstream and often by the left (which
just cannot accept that an Asian, non-
Western country, is capable of
building a much better society
than anything that was ever
created in Europe and
North America... and
without plundering
the rest of the
world).''







John 8:44:

''You belong to your father, the devil, and you
want to carry out your father’s desires. He
was a murderer from the beginning, not
holding to the truth, for there is no
truth in him. When he lies, he
speaks his native language,
for he is a liar, and the
father of lies.''








John Lennon:

“You either get tired
fighting for peace,
or you die.”








Vladimir Ilych Lenin:

“All over the world, wherever there are capitalists,
freedom of the press means freedom to buy up
 newspapers, to buy writers, to bribe, buy and
 fake ‘public opinion’ for the benefit of the
bourgeoisie.”








Catholic theologian G.K. Chesterton:

"Angels can fly, because they
take themselves lightly."






Sufi-Zen poet Thomas Burns:

“May you be ridiculously happy!”








Lawrence Ferlinghetti:

Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
and whose shepherds mislead them.

Pity the nation whose leaders are liars,
whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.

Pity the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero
and aims to rule the world with force and by torture.

Pity the nation that knows no other language
but its own and no other culture but its own.

Pity the nation whose breath is money
and sleeps the sleep of the too well fed.

Pity the nation — oh, pity the people
who allow their rights to erode
and their freedoms to be
washed away.

My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty.









Blogger:

''Food for thought... Syria's vice president is a woman
 and half of the parliament are made up of women
 from all sects. For some reason, this is never
 mentioned. Probably because it kills the
'Assad is a dictator' narrative.''








OpEd columnist John Wight:

“Only when we are living in a world
 in which sanctions are imposed
 ‘on’ the United States, rather
than ‘by’ the United States...
will we know justice reigns.”








Andre Vltchek, philosopher, novelist,
filmmaker and investigative journalist:

''Iran is already a semi-socialist country, which has 
been greatly influenced by Venezuela and other
progressive Latin American nations. That, is
something that we are not supposed to know.
Iran is also putting great emphasis on social
services, like healthcare, culture, education,
public transportation. Teheran is shockingly
elegant, clean and an impressive city, full of
arts and culture. The people are educated
 and knowledgeable, and very open. Even
now, Iran is moving closer and closer to
Russia, left-wing S. American countries,
 and China. The visa regime for Russian
citizens has been abolished, and Iranians
travel visa-free, to the Russian Federation.
Many are now fascinated with China; when
I
was in Teheran, there was a Chinese film

festival. Together with Russia, China,
Cuba & Venezuela, Iran has become
 an important bastion of anti-
imperialism.That is why
it is hated in the West,
 of course.''








Hazrat Inayat Khan:

''The wise man should keep the balance between
love and power; he should keep the love in his
nature ever increasing and expanding, and at
the same time strengthen the will, so that the
heart may not easily be broken.''








Hazrat Inayat Khan:

''There are two essential duties, for the man
of wisdom and love; that is, to keep the love
in our nature ever increasing and expanding
and to strengthen the will so that the heart
may not be easily broken. Balance is ideal
in life; man must be fine and yet strong,
man must be loving and yet powerful.''








Hazrat Inayat Khan:

Love produces harmony
and harmony creates beauty.
Therefore the chief motto in life
is
'Love, harmony and beauty'.

 Love is the nature of life,
beauty is the outcome of life,
harmony is the means by which
life accomplishes its purpose,
 and the lack of it, results in
 destruction.

 Love develops into harmony,
and of harmony is born beauty.







Jesus Christ:

"Your fathers work, you will do."








Our Father Among the Saints, John
Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople:

''Enter into the Church - and wash away your sins.
For here there is a hospital and not a court of law.
Do not be ashamed again to enter the Church, be
ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent.''








Bekhteev's poem ‘Come
to your senses, upper classes!’:

And once more their hearts are full of intrigue,
And once more treachery and lies are on their lips,
And life writes into the chapter of the last book
The vile treason of the grandees who knew it all.







Netanyahu in Fink's Bar in Jerusalem in 1990:

"America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry,
chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece - until
there is nothing left but the world's biggest
welfare state that we will create & control.
Why? Because it is the will of God, and
America is big enough to take the hit,
so we can do it again and again and
again. This is what we do, to
countries that we hate. We
destroy them very slowly
and make them suffer,
for refusing to be
our slaves."








US economist Barry Eichengreen:

"It costs only a few cents for the Bureau of Engraving
 and Printing to produce a $100 bill, but other
countries had to pony up $100 of actual
 goods, in order to obtain one."






George Gordon Noel Byron:

“If youth but knew; if age but could.
Wives in their husbands’ absences grow subtler,
And daughters sometimes run off with the butler.”








Blogger:

''Old doesn't mean decrepit. Older people possess Wisdom,
because of a whole life time of experience. Also, instead
of coming from EGO and Intellect, they are often in touch
with the higher level of Intuition and Wisdom. That's why
Native Americans have such a high regard for their Elders.
Of course the White society movie & advertising industry
only has regard for Youth. Wisdom is not respected.''







Jay Tharappel:

 
''Anti-Stalinism is what became of Marxism
after a century of ideological inbreeding
within a Eurocentic echo-chamber,
without being rejuvenated and,
to a degree, corrected by,
post-colonial criticism.''








Andre Vltchek, philosopher, novelist,
filmmaker and investigative journalist:

''The West 'kidnapped' 'left-wing', as it kidnapped Islam.
 'Interest groups' and individualism fully infiltrated
what used to be an internationalist and highly
disciplined movement. In the West, what is
called 'left', is now some kind of anarcho-
syndicalism (a totally Western concept
that could never be supported in such
 places as Asia), sprinkled with sexual
orientation and gender identity. It's not
a revolutionary block, very far from it.
It is a 'selfie-Left' -  a totally toothless
nonsense. Creative Marxism, is now
in China, Latin America, and in other
non-Western countries. Communism
 is definitely not dead, as they want
you to believe in London, Paris or
New York. It evolved, it's evolving.
But its essence is the same -
Internationalism, the mortal
fight against Western
imperialism, and
 equality for all.''








 George Orwell, in his novel, 1984:

''He who controls the past, controls the future.
He who controls the present controls the past.''








Adolf Hitler:

“The wealth of Great Britain is the result -
less of a perfect commercial organisation
- than of the capitalist exploitation of the
three hundred and fifty million Indian
slaves. They know very well, that
it’s the possession of India, on
which the existence of their
Empire, depends.”







Jay Tharappel:

''When the British arrived in Bengal (India) it
was one of the richest places in the world,
and when they left, it was reduced to the
poorest place in the world. When the
British won their first victory on
Indian soil in 1757, India owned
roughly 24% of global income,
and when the British left,
it
was 4%.''






Adolf Hitler:

“What India was for England,
the territories of Russia will
be, for us.”







To justify the partitioning of Palestine
to make way for Israel, Churchill said:

“I do not admit for instance, that a great wrong
has been done to the Red Indians of America
or the black people of Australia… by the fact
that a stronger race, a higher-grade race…
has come in and taken their place”.








US Army General Jacob H. Smith's order,
upon the start of the Philippines War:

 “Kill everyone over 10 years old.”






Lenin:

“As a result of the extensive colonial policy,
the European proletarian, partly, finds
himself in a position when it is not

practically enslaved natives

Lenin:

“The British bourgeoisie, for example, derives
more profit from the many millions of the
population of India and other colonies,
than from the British workers. In
certain countries, this provides
the material and economic
basis --- for infecting the
proletariat with colonial
chauvinism.”








Henri Van Kol of the Dutch Socialist Workers’ Party
at the 2nd International, on the 14th of July, 1889:

“Suppose we bring a machine to the savages of central Africa.
What will they do with it? Perhaps they will start up a war
dance around it. Perhaps they will kill us or even eat us.”








Rogozin, on Rossiya-24 tv, January 29th 2016:

"The US cannot separate its segment of the ISS
in such a way that it will continue flying. Few

be autonomous. We can separate from the
ISS tomorrow and stay on the orbit,
working there. The Americans
cannot do that, they are
absolutely tied to us,
they are nothing

Robert Tressell:


“Every man who is not helping to bring about

Singer/songwriter and peace activist, Phil Ochs:

Show me a prison, show me a jail
Show me a prisoner whose face has grown pale
And I'll show you a young man
With many reasons why
There but for fortune, go you or I.

Show me an alley, show me a train
Show me a hobo who sleeps out in the rain
And I'll show you a young man
With many reasons why
There but for fortune, go you or I

Show me a country where the bombs had to fall
Show me the ruins of buildings so tall
And I'll show you a young land
With so many reasons why
There but for fortune, go you or I
You or I.







Singer/songwriter and peace activist, Phil Ochs:

''Leave the old and dying America and use your
creative energies to help form a new America,
that would be de-militarized, more humanistic,
 where the police are less hostile, and closer
to
the community, where the wealthy are not

given unleashed power for the exploitation
of the people. And mostly because it's now
a matter of life and death --- reassert the
ecological balance with the environment,
which means people in the oil companies
and car companies & the space industry
- and all the other industries - will have to
be
brought into account, so that there will
be
a new definition of government, which
has
to be closer to the people & less close

to special interests --- which are far more
 harmful than any revolutionaries.''

Paul Craig Roberts:


“The 'War on Terror' is really a war on Muslim countries
with foreign policies independent of Washington and
Israel; it is a war on US civil liberty, and a war on
Middle Eastern countries in the way of Israeli

The International Court at the Hague
 ruled, on June 26, 1986, as follows:

“The International Court at the Hague decides that
 the United States of America, by training, arming,
 equipping, financing and supplying the ‘contra’
 forces; or otherwise encouraging, supporting
 and aiding military and paramilitary activities
 in and against Nicaragua, has acted, against
 the Republic of Nicaragua, in breach of its
obligation under customary international law
 not to intervene in the affairs of another State.”




 

George W. Bush:

 "If any country takes an American

 (civilian or military --- despite the Act’s name)
 who may in the future be prosecuted by the
 International Criminal Court in The Hague."






Former CIA agent John Stockwell:

“I don’t mean to abuse you with verbal violence, but
you have to understand what your government
and its agents are doing. They [the Contras] go
into villages, they haul out families. With the
children forced to watch, they castrate the
father, they peel the skin off his face, they
put a grenade in his mouth and pull the pin.
With the children forced to watch they gang-
rape the mother, and slash her breasts off.
And sometimes for variety, they make the
parents watch while they do these things
to the children.”






Ex US president Ronald Reagan:

''The Contras are the moral equivalent 
of our Founding Fathers.''

''In WW1 Serbia lost 1 THIRD of its male population.
It is the equivalent of what happened to the USSR

F. William Engdahl: 

“Putin’s speech talked about nuclear primacy, and
the Russian response, and he outlined the military
developments they had quietly brought online
--- since Washington unilaterally tore up the
ABM Treaty in 2002/2003. So he outlined an
awesome array of missiles; hypersonic

low flying, stealth missiles, carrying
nuclear
warheads on unpredictable
trajectories,
invisible against any
prospective missile
defence
and air defence systems...  

unmanned submersible vehicles
at great depths, that could go
many times faster than the
speed of any submarine's 
cutting edge torpedoes;
and commentators in

(noting that, in spite of all the
Western pressure on every
country, including India, to
join the embargo against
the Syrian people, India
wouldn’t cease its
relationship with
Syria)

“We respect the Indian position a lot, because,
first of all, it’s based on the international law,
it’s based on the United Nations' charter,
it’s based on the morals of the world,
of human civilizations first, and
Indian civilization second,
and, secondly, it's based
on the Indian people’s
morals.”







China's
Global Times Op-Ed:

''The West is only a small fraction of the world,
& is nowhere near the global representative it
once thought it was.  The silenced minorities
within the international community need to
realize this, and prove just how deep their
understanding is, of such a realization...
by
proving it to the world through action."







 
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, (The Brothers Karamazov):

“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies
to himself and listens to his own lie, comes to a
point that he cannot distinguish the truth with-
in him, or around him and so loses all respect
for himself and for others. And having no
respect, he ceases to love.”

''This is the Western world where you are now,
a world where hate holds sway over love,

Thomas Paine:

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I
may so express it, that mental lying has produced
in society. When a man has so far corrupted and
prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to
subscribe his professional belief to
things he does not believe, he has
prepared himself for the
commission of every
 other crime”








Smedley Butler, Marine Major General, USMC.:

“ I believe in adequate defense at the coastline,
 and nothing else. If a nation comes over here
to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with
America, is that, when the dollar only
earns six percent over here, then it
gets restless and goes overseas
to get 100 percent... Then the
flag follows the dollar, and
the soldiers follow the flag.

I wouldn’t go to war again, as I have done, to protect
 some lousy investment of the bankers. There are
only two things we should fight for. One is the
defense of our homes, and the other is the
 Bill of Rights. War for any other reason
 is simply a racket.

''There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the
military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men”
to
point out enemies; its “muscle men”, to
destroy
enemies; its “brain men” to plan

preparations; and a “Big Boss”,

Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism!

''It may seem odd for me, a military man, to adopt such
a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to...  I spent
thirty-three years and four months in active military
service, as a member of this country’s most agile
military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all
commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant
to Major-General. And, during that period, I
spent most of my time being a high-class
muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall

''In short, I was a racketeer,

positive or negative. Some-
one like Trump, will move
nothing for me.”









Arundhati Roy, in 2001, reacting to the Western “War on Terror”:

“When he announced the air strikes, President George Bush said, 
"We're a peaceful nation." America's favourite ambassador,
Tony Blair, ...echoed him: "We're a peaceful people."
So
now we know. Pigs are horses. Girls are

Addressing the accusations of meddling in the
US election, Russian President Vladimir Putin:

''Presidents come and go, and even the
parties in power change, but the main
political direction does not change.
That’s why, in the grand scheme
of things, we don’t care who is
the head of the United States;
we know, more or less, what
is going to happen. So, in
this regard, even if we

when they refuse); running huge
trade deficits with, virtually, the
entire world and forcing reserve
banks around the world to buy up
US government debt; leveraging
that debt, to run up colossal
budget deficits (now around
a trillion dollars a year); and
robbing the entire planet by

Margarita Simonian beautifully summarizes the feelings

that the West's hatred elicits in the Russian population:

“All your injustice and cruelty, inquisitorial hypocrisy
and lies: you forced us to stop respecting you. You
and your so-called “values.” We don’t want to live
like you live, anymore. For fifty years, secretly
and openly, we wanted to live like you, but
not any longer. We have no more respect
for you, and for those among us that you
support, and for all those people who
support you. For that, you only have
yourself to blame. Our people are
capable of forgiving a lot. But we
don’t forgive arrogance, and no
normal nation would. Your only
remaining Empire, would be
wise to learn the history of
its allies:-  all of them, are
former empires - to learn
the ways they lost their
empires. Only because
of their arrogance.
White man’s

“And to those who, in the past 15 years, have
tried to accelerate an arms race, and seek
unilateral advantage against Russia, have
introduced restrictions & sanctions that
are illegal from the standpoint of inter-
national law -- aiming to restrain our
nation’s development, including in
the military area -- I will say this:
everything you have tried to
prevent through such a policy
has already happened. No one
has managed to restrain Russia.”

“Any use of nuclear weapons against

 It's caused by Private Monopoly. That is the present system. They
have monopolized everything that it is possible to monopolize; they
 have got the whole earth, the minerals in the earth and the streams
that water the earth. The only reason they have not monopolized
the daylight and the air is that it is not possible to do it. If it were
 possible to construct huge gasometers and to draw together and
 compress within them the whole of the atmosphere, it would have
been done long ago, and we should have been compelled to work
for them in order to get money to buy air to breathe. And if that

''If you think... what would be the largest economy in

the US has about 200 million people, deemed to be

probably, around 700 million people deemed to be
middle class. You can just see where this is going
and where consumerism will be based. On current
growth rates, it could well achieve that. There has
been, perhaps - in our view - too much pessimism
over Chinese growth. It does have some problems
- such as a considerable credit bubble that it needs
to deal with. But, ultimately, it has this very large
backdrop of a middle class, that will really drive
 growth in the coming years.''








Economist Ivan Danilov, on Moody's downgrading
of China's sovereign credit rating from Aa3 to A1:

"The US is sending China and Russia a message –
 that 'all the elements of financial infrastructure
 that you do not take away from Washington in
 time --- will be used against you, in time.' It is
 worth listening to this message, and drawing
 the right conclusions from these first volleys
 of this new stage of the global financial war."








US Secretary of Defense James Mattis:


“There has been no change to our
continued extraordinary efforts to
 avoid innocent civilian casualties.”








Belkis Wille, Iraq researcher for Human Rights Watch:

“Remarkably, when I interview families at camps,
who have just fled the fighting, the first thing they
complain about, is not the 3 horrific years they've
spent under ISIS, or the last months of no food or
clean water, but the US airstrikes. Many told me
that they survived such hardships, and almost
made it out with their families, only to lose all
their loved ones in a strike, before they had
 time to flee.”





SUFI LOVE






Martin Wolf, chief economics commentator at the Financial Times:

"The hopes of a brave new world of progress, harmony & democracy,
raised by the market opening of the 1980s and the collapse of the
 Soviet Union between 1989 and 1991, have turned into ashes."






 Former USSR President, Gorbachev:

 “Plainly speaking, the US has already
 dragged us into a new Cold War,
by trying to openly implement
its
idea of triumphalism.
What’s next?

 Unfortunately, I cannot be sure
 that the Cold War will not bring
 about a ‘hot’ one. I’m afraid
they might take the risk.”






President Xi, at the UN Office at Geneva, this January:

"We should advance democracy in international relations
and reject dominance by just one, or several, countries.
All countries should jointly shape the
world's future,
write international rules, manage global affairs -- and
ensure that development outcomes are shared by all."







Grace Lee Boggs, author, activist, philosopher and feminist:
 
“Love isn't about what we did yesterday; it's about
 what we do today and tomorrow and the day after.”

"I’ve come to believe that you cannot change any society
unless you take responsibility for it, unless you see your-
self as belonging to it -- and responsible for changing it."

“At the core of the problem is an obsolete factory model
of schooling that sorts, tracks, tests, rejects or certifies
 working-class children --- as if they were products on
an assembly line. The purpose of education, can't be
only to increase the earning power of the individual,
or to supply workers for the ever-changing slots of
the corporate machine. Children need to be given
a sense of the 'unique capacity of human beings
 to shape and create reality in accordance with
 conscious purposes and plans.”







Professor, Practice of Public Policy, Kishore Mahbubani:

“Viewed against the backdrop of the past 1,800 years...  the
recent period of Western relative over-performance against
other civilizations, is a major historical aberration. All such
aberrations come to a natural end, and that is happening
now.”







Zhang Xiangzhong, forest management official:

"Planting a tree in the soil is a skill,

 is an art." 







Zhang Weiwei, director, Inst. of

Mao Zedong, in 1934:


"We won't have the support of the people,

Xi Jinping, in 2012.

"To meet the people's desire for
a happy life ~ is our mission."









UK Tory election campaign guidelines:

''Under no circumstances debate policies
 or acknowledge Tory failures, just go
 all out attack on Corbyn.''








Unite union general secretary Len McCluskey:

“Theresa May fought an underhand, depressing campaign
 and has been well and truly humbled. People do not want
Tory business as usual, they do not want a politics built
on fear that spreads despair, and they certainly do not
 want a lame duck prime minister. Credit for this must
 go to Labour, led by Jeremy Corbyn, which has
pulled off the biggest political reawakening
of the century."






 Algerian writer Kamel Daoud:

 "Daesh has a mother, the invasion of Iraq.
But it also has a father, the ideological
 industry of Saudi Arabia."









United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in October:
 
"Afghanistan is responsible for 90% of the world’s
illicit opiates such as heroin, & opium production
increased by 43% just in the past year."








US permanent representative to the UN, Haley:

 ''America is the moral conscience of the world."








Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova:

 "Now it's clear what's happening on the planet: after every
 demonstration of American conscience, Russia has had
to strain its brains to bring the world from the [brink].
Taking a look back at the results of US foreign policy
 of the last decade, one can assume that Washington
 is more suited to the role of another 'global' organ…"

"And another thing.. The UN is not an instrument promoting
 America's or anyone else's values. The UN is a chance
given to humanity to prevent new world wars, which
 come about as a result of an overabundance of
feeling, about one's own exclusivity."








Winston Churchill:

"Occasionally, our American friends experience the
need to wash their conscience in a bidet. The fact
 is that later, they make us drink the water. "








Ammar Waqqaf, director, the UK-based think tank Gnosos,
commenting on all the US airstrikes on Syrian troops:


“This is being used as a principle, to prevent the Syrian Army
 from restoring Syrian sovereignty, against rebels, against
Daesh [Arabic pejorative term for IS]. In a sense, about
a year
ago, the US were passively using IS forces to
put pressure
on the Syrian Army. Now they seem
to be actively
protecting them, and this
is madness.”









Russia's President Putin, on March 1st, 2018:

“There is no reason, after 1991, or certainly
after 2000, for the existence of NATO,
other than the reason given when
NATO was created, by the first
secretary general of NATO:
[General Hastings Lionel Ismay,

1st Baron Ismay KG, GCB,
CH, DSO, PC, DL]
to keep the Russians out,
the Germans down, and
the Americans in.”








In November 2011, German Minister
of Finance, Dr. Wolfgang Schäuble:

“In Germany, at no time since
the 8th of May 1945, have we
 been fully sovereign”.








Blogger:

''Germany is still occupied. Through an agreement
the US controls German media, education, and
just about everything else, until 2099.''








Hassan Sakr, head of foreign affairs,
the Syrian Social Nationalist Party:

"The Americans are still working on the Israeli agenda
 which is summarized as: dividing the region into
religious and ethnic pieces, and this is obvious
on
their position re the Kurdish referendum."









Political thinker, Shaktiman:

"Is it worth it, to live in a country where you must look
over your shoulder 24/7, because some idiot may
use explosives to blow up you and your loved
 ones, to Kingdom Come?

"Is freedom the right to lie and force everyone to call it truth?
Is promoting cowardice in our citizenry in the face of tyranny
 and injustice worth it? Bombing our neighbours in this world
 and killing their children, has created a mountain of hatred
 from the world. The US citizen must speak up, or perish.

"Israel has already threatened that if it doesn't get its way,
 change regimes where Israel and the US so choose and
 more so to become "Greater Israel", (if one can call it
great),
then Israel will unilaterally launch nukes
against the world."









Pope Francis:

“Why are deadly weapons being sold to those who plan to
 inflict untold suffering?...simply for money: money that is
 drenched in blood, often innocent blood."








Sayyed Nasrallah, Hezbollah leader:

 “For all those fighting in the ranks of the enemy in Syria,
 I tell you -- this project is over. Netanyahu visited Putin
to beg him, because he fears the defeat of ISIL, for its
defeat means Israel’s defeat and the victory of the
resistance axis in the region. I call on you to
abandon the US/Israeli front and join the
 resistance front… since the beginning,
 I have assured you that the resistance
 axis will never be defeated, neither
 in Syria nor in Iraq or Yemen."








The Miner’s Next Step, in 1912:

‘All leaders become corrupt, in spite of their own
good intentions. They become “gentlemen”,
they become MPs and have considerable
social prestige because of this power.’

‘As any increase in the power of the rank and file
 lessens the power and prestige, the leader then
has an interest – a vested interest – in
stopping progress.’

‘The order and system is based on the suppression
 of the men, from being independent thinkers, into
 being “the men” or “the mob”.’








Eric Hobsbawm:

"It seems that American patriotism measures itself
against an outcast group. The right Americans are
the right Americans because they are not like the
wrong Americans, who are not really Americans."









Malcolm X:

"You just know you're in The South
when you cross the Canadian border."








Angela Davis, black, communist,
 feminist, US intellectual, in 2015:

I think feminism,
radical feminism, radical anti-racist

and anti-capitalist feminism, helps us to do the
reconceptualisation that is necessary, in order
to produce a left that is more in line with the
 vast changes that have occurred in the era
of global capitalism, recognising the
feminisation of the working class,
the structural shifts in the global economy,
and the fact that some industries are largely
populated by women, industries that rely on
reproductive labour, of care industries,

domestic service, health care, etc.
It seems
to me that in many ways
unions around the
world, are not
willing to recognise those changes.

 To organise the unorganised,
at this moment,
 is to organise
 women."







Paramhansa Yogananda:

Father, I will drink vitality from the fountains
of sunshine. I will drink peace from the silver
fountain of mooned nights. I will drink Your
 power in the mighty cup of the wind. I will
 drink Your consciousness in all the little
cups of my thoughts. I will drink Your
 joy in my joy. I will drink Your Bliss
 in my blissful thoughts.  






       Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, 19/3/2014:

"What has happened in Crimea is a response to the
 format that made Ukrainian democracy collapse.
And there is only one reason for this: the anti-
Russian policy of the US and some European
countries. They seek to encircle Russia, in
order to weaken and eventually destroy it.
There is a certain transnational elite that's
 been cherishing this dream, for 300 years."
 





Ilya Kharlamov:
 
"On the one hand, NATO has said that a dialogue with
 Moscow is necessary, mentioning joint threats that
could be dealt with together. On the other hand,
the bloc has tirelessly spread wild speculations
on Moscow's supposedly bloodthirsty plans,
 which have to be stopped. This is not a
 mixed message, but a chronic
cognitive dissonance."






Vladimir Jabotinsky, Jewish Daily Bulletin, 1935:

“There is only one power which really counts. The
 power of political pressure. We Jews are the most
powerful people on earth, because we have this
 power, and we know how to apply it.”






Pope Francis:

“Power is like drinking gin on an empty stomach.
You feel dizzy, get drunk, you lose your balance,
 and you will end up hurting yourself and those
 around you, if you don’t connect your power
with humility and tenderness.”  






Admiral Moorer, Chief of US Naval Operations
and Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff:

“No American president can stand up to Israel.”





Netanyahu on Christian Zionists






Naim Qassem, Hezbollah's deputy
 secretary-general, on Palestine:

“One state means war. Two states means peace
under their conditions, which will lead us to war.”








Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer:

 “Our goal is to make sure that we maintain
America’s dominance around the world.”








Conn Hallinan:

"According to the CIA, 'by 2030 Asia will have
 surpassed N. America and Europe combined
 in terms of global power --- based on GDP,
population size, military spending and
technological investments.' By 2025
 two-thirds of the world will live in
Asia, 7% in Europe, and 5% in
 the US. Those are the
 demographics
 of eclipse."










The Chinese poet, Lao Tzu:

"Those who have knowledge, don't predict;
 those who predict, don't have knowledge."









Mark Twain:

“It's easier to fool people
 than to convince them
that
they have been
fooled.”








Otto von Bismarck:

 ''We must cultivate among the Ukrainians, a people
 whose consciousness is altered to such an extent,
 that they begin to hate everything Russian.''







Ayatollah Ali Khamenei:

“The sorrowful story of Palestine and the excruciating
 sadness felt, because of the oppression against this
 patient, enduring & resistant nation, truly distresses
any individual who seeks freedom, truth & justice,
and it thrusts an agonizing pain and suffering
upon
one’s heart.”







Hazrat Inayat Khan - 'Our Sacred Task':

"The principal thing that the Message has
to accomplish in this era, is to create the
realization of the divine spark in every soul
-- that every soul according to its progress,
 may begin to realize for itself, the spark
of divinity within. This is the task
that is before us.

Now you may ask, what is the Message? The Message is
this: that the whole of humanity, is as one single body,

 and all the nations, communities and races, are the
different organs, and the happiness and well-being
of each of them, is the happiness and well-being of
the whole body. If there is one organ of the body in
 pain, the whole body has to sustain a share of the
strain of it. That, by this Message, mankind may
begin to think that his welfare and his well-being
 is not in looking after himself, but it is in looking
after others --- and, when in all, there will be
reciprocity, love and goodness towards
another, the better time will come."







John Swinton (1829–1901), Scots-US
journalist, and newspaper publisher:

"There is no such a thing in America as an independent press,
unless it is out in country towns. You are all slaves. You know
it, and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to express
an honest opinion. If you expressed it, you would know before-
hand that it would never appear in print. I am paid $150 for
keeping honest opinions out of the paper I am connected
with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for doing
similar things. If I should allow honest opinions to
be printed in one issue of my paper, I would be like
Othello before 24 hours: my occupation would be
gone. The man who would be so foolish as to
write honest opinions would be out on the
street hunting for another job. The business of a
New York journalist is to distort the truth, to lie
outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet
of Mammon, and to sell his country and his race
for his daily bread, or for what is about the same
 — his salary. You know this, and I know it; and
what foolery to be toasting an "Independent
Press"! We are the tools and vassals of rich
men behind the scenes. We are jumping-jacks.
They pull the string and we dance. Our time,
our talents, our lives, our possibilities, are
all the property of other men. We are
intellectual prostitutes".







Syria's President Bashar al-Assad:

"The mainstream media has failed. Their
version has been discredited. It is in
the alternative media that we must
seek the truth."







US writer and investigative historian, Eric Zuesse:

"On 15 August 2007, the BBC headlined “Wikipedia
 Shows CIA Page Edits,” and Jonathan Fildes
reported that, “An online tool that claims
 to reveal the identity of organizations
that edit Wikipedia pages, revealed
 that the CIA was involved in editing
 entries.” I.e.: What the CIA doesn’t
 like, they can (and do) eliminate
 or change."







Ji Xinping:

"Remembering history is to open up to the

 “Our work, is dedicated to making
sure history belongs to everyone.”






Italian psychoanalyst, Dr. Roberto Assagioli,
on the effect of watching Western Television:
 
"Like drinking mental poison!"







Psychologist Stanley Milgram:

''Often it's not so much the kind of person
 a man is, as the kind of situation in which
 he finds himself, that determines how he
will act.''







Hazrat Inayat Khan:


"Peace is perfected activity; that is perfect
 which is complete in all its aspects,
balanced in each direction and
 under complete control of
 the will."
 






Kurt Koch, president, Pontifical
 Council for Promoting Christian Unity:

"We should not fear a strong Islam,
 but a weak Christianity."







The head of the Synodal Dept. for Church & Society
 Relations (Moscow Patriarchate), Vsevolod Chaplin:

“Any fight against terrorism is moral;
we can even call it a holy fight.
Secularism will never be able to cope with the
challenge of religious fanaticism and extremism
coming to Europe today. Secularism will always
 lose to religious or pseudo-religious extremism.
 Even if secularism successfully beats off
religious and public radicalism with the
help of power and money for some
time, it won’t last long, only
 for 20-30 years.”







Pope Francis:

"We need to embrace technological transformations of the
 economy and of life, without resigning ourselves to the
 ideology that seems to be gaining a foothold wherever
 one looks, and which envisions a world in which only
 half, or maybe two-thirds, of employable people
 actually work and the others are maintained
with a welfare cheque. Without work one
 can survive,  but to live, you need work.”







Paul Craig Roberts, economist:

"I am convinced that if robotics is going to supplant
human labour, patents will have to be socialized,
and income distributed on a relatively equal
 basis, throughout society."







Voltaire:

 "To learn who rules over you --- simply find
out who you are not allowed to criticise."

Paul Craig Roberts, economist:

"Frontline journalists, such as Chris Hedges, who
 have seen and reported a lot, have concluded
 that the fate of the world is in such few hands
 that act only in their narrow self-interests,
 that only revolution can correct the
 imbalance between the interest
 of a handful of oligarchs and
the mass of humanity.
 Hedges’ position is
 not an easy one
 with which
  to argue."







Syria's president Assad:

''Our optimism starts with a possible improvement in
 relations between the US and Russia -- not between
 Russia and the West, because the European Union
does not exist on the political map."







Russia's President Putin:

"America is the only country to use a nuclear weapon
on an unarmed country - one which didn't have
nuclear weapons. Did you expect us to
 forget this, to just wipe it out of
our minds? - No."






The former Foreign Minister of Nicaragua, and
 former President of the UN General Assembly,
 Father Miguel D’Escoto:

 “What the U.S. government is doing in Syria
 is tantamount to a war of aggression, which,
according to the Nuremberg Tribunal, is the
worst possible crime a State can commit
 against another State.”






Former US President Jimmy Carter says, of his own country:

"Now it’s just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribery
 being the essence of getting the nominations for

President Assad of Syria:

"The blood of our soldiers is on the hands of the

"Yes, the blood of our soldiers is on your hands,

In response to JFK’s assassination, President
Truman - who set up the CIA - wrote publicly:

    “I think it has become necessary to take another
    look at the purpose & operations of our Central
 Intelligence Agency — the CIA.”

    “I decided to set up a special organization charged
     with the collection of all intelligence reports from
     every available source (the Departments of State,
             Defense, Commerce, Interior), and to have those         
 reports reach me as President --- without any
department “treatment” or interpretations.”

    "The most important thing about this move --- was
    to guard against the chance of intelligence being
     used to influence or lead the President into unwise
    decisions and I thought it was necessary that the
 President do his own thinking and evaluating.”

    “For some time, I've been disturbed by the way
     that the CIA has been diverted from its original
     assignment. It has become an operational and,
    at times, a policy-making arm of Government.
 This has led to trouble and may have
compounded our difficulties in
several explosive areas.”

 “I never had any thought, when I set up the CIA,
 that it would be injected into peacetime cloak &
dagger operations. Some of the complications &
 embarrassment, I think we have experienced,
are, in part, attributable to the fact that this
quiet intelligence arm of the President has
been so removed from its intended role,
 that it is being interpreted as a symbol
 of sinister and mysterious foreign
 intrigue—and a subject for cold
 war enemy propaganda.”

    “But there are now some searching questions
 that need to be answered. I, therefore, would
 like to see the CIA be restored to its original
 assignment, as the intelligence arm of the
 President.”







Mark Taliano, writer:

“Syria was prosperous, with a growing economy.
 It had food sovereignty, with a “strategic” stock
 of millions of tons of high quality wheat, not the
 “Franken-food” bio-tech variety; it had a strong
 central bank with no usurious IMF loans; it had
 a popular, reformer President; it had a mostly
well-educated, secular, pluralist, forward-
looking population; and it was the fourth
 safest country in the world.”







President Truman, in 1964, publicly wrote:

“The CIA was set up by me for the sole purpose
 of getting all the available information to the
 President. It was not intended to operate
as an international agency engaged
in strange activities.”

Colonel General Leonid Ivashov, President, the
 International Centre of Geopolitical Analysis:

"If the data on the Russia-NATO power balance
 in the Western direction is analyzed, as well as
 the military activity build-up rate at our borders,
the scale of combat equipment deployment, if
 the grade of Russia demonization is estimated,
 one can say that preparation to a real war is
taking place. [Such] acts are usually under-
taken at the forefront of a war [and it is
evident] that the US is preparing for a
[potential] nuclear conflict......"







 Vladimir Putin, at
Petersburg economic forum:

 “Russia does not want war and does not intend
 to start a war. But - today - Russia can see that
the explosion of a global war is almost unavoid-
able & is prepared, and will continue preparing.
 Russia doesn't want a war, but is not afraid of
a war. Those who get Russia involved in this
process, will learn the real meaning of pain.”

Fidel Castro's farewell in his last official appearance
 at the 7th Congress of the Cuban Communist Party
 on April 19th, 2016:

"I'll be 90 years old soon. Soon I'll be like all the
others. The time will come for all of us, but the
 ideas of the Cuban communists, will remain as
 proof on this planet, that if they are worked at
 
with fervour and dignity, they can produce the
material and cultural goods that humans need
and we need to fight without truce
to obtain them."






President of the International Institute for
 Scientific Cooperation, Elena Ponomareva:

"In the USSR, people were willing to die for
 their ideas. In 1989, the Soviet leadership
 surrendered in disgrace, although it was
 not Gorbachev's team, that had created
the great Soviet Union. As soon as the
 USSR was deprived of its strategic
 vision and the global project it had
been implementing, the country
 lost its power instantly."







Mohammed Ali:

“I’ve never seen 100 nationalities getting along in peace,
and done better than these people have. As far as what
they believe or what they worship - that’s their business.
But truth is truth - I saw nothing but peace & tranquillity.
I think that this should be promoted more. These people
don’t want anything, but peace: they don’t want any
trouble, they don’t have violence in the streets, or
among the peoples. Their leader Mr. Brezhnev,
is a peaceful, humble man.”







Fidel Castro:

“Just ideas will triumph,
 or disaster will triumph.”






Russian President Vladimir Putin:

“Many of the Euro-Atlantic countries are actually
rejecting their roots, including Christian values
that constitute the basis of Western civilization.
They're denying moral principles & all traditional
identities, national, cultural, religious, and even
secular. They are implementing policies, that
equate families with same-sex partnerships,
worship of God with worship of Satan. I am
convinced, that this opens a direct path to
degradation and primitivism, resulting in
 a profound demographic & moral crisis.”

Sahra Wagenknecht, Vice President of Germany's
Leftist Party, said in Parliament, on November
23rd, to Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel:

"Where does political Islam have its most important
 basis? These are the Islamic dictatorships on the
Gulf, which finance & upgrade terrorist murder
 bands, worldwide. According to the Federal
Government's own findings, it is also Turkey,
which plays a key role in the organization and
 arming of terrorists. We find it astonishing that
the Christian-social anti-Islamic militants from
 Bavaria do not seem to mind at all, that in the
 first half of 2016, Turkey outstripped 25th
place in the ranking countries of German
armaments exports, & that Saudi Arabia
& Qatar too, have more German arms
than ever before. What kind of
 mad politics is this?"







Barack Obama:

“I believe in American exceptionalism

Minna Thomas Antrim:

"Between flattery and admiration,

contempt."






Former US President Jimmy Carter, on the US
Supreme Court's decision to enable unlimited
secret money (including foreign cash) to pour
 into the US' political and judicial campaigns:

"It violates the essence of what made America
a great country in its political system. Now it’s
just an oligarchy with unlimited political bribes
 being the essence of getting the nominations
 for president, or being elected president. And
the same thing applies to governors, and US
 Senators and congress members. So... now
we’ve just seen a subversion of our political
system, as a payoff to major contributors,
who want and expect, and sometimes get,
 favors for themselves, after the election's
 over. At the present time the incumbents,
Democrats & Republicans, look upon this
unlimited money --- as a great benefit to
themselves. Somebody that's already in
Congress, has a great deal more to sell.”

Bertrand Russell:

"Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.
Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.
With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts of men.
I have wished to know why the stars shine.
Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.
I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.
This has been my life; I found it worth living."







M. Cartmill:

"As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved
 factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful
vision of human life - so I became a scientist.
This is like becoming an archbishop
so you can meet girls."








Mark Twain:

"The man who does not read good books has no
 advantage over the man who cannot read them." 






Douglas Adams:

"Plenty of people did not care for him much, but
 then there's a huge difference between disliking
somebody -- maybe even disliking them a lot --
 and actually shooting them, or strangling them,
 dragging them through the fields, and setting
 their house on fire. It was a difference which
 kept the vast majority of the population
 alive, from day to day."








Bertrand Russell:

"Aristotle maintained that women have fewer teeth
 than men; although he was twice married, it never
 occurred to him to verify this statement by
 examining his wives' mouths."







Writing for the E.U.'s Institute for Security Studies,
 Thomas Ries, Swedish Inst. of International Affairs:

 “The percentage of the population who are poor
 and frustrated will continue to be very high, the
 tensions between this world and the world of the
 rich will continue to rise, with the corresponding
consequences. Since we will hardly be able to
overcome the origin of this problem by 2020,
i.e., the functional defects of society, we will
 have to protect ourselves more strongly.”






Bertrand Russell:
 
"Most people would sooner die
 than think; in fact, they do so." 







Albert Einstein:

"The purest form of madness is to leave everything
 as it is... and just hope that something changes."







Sun Tzu:
 
"Opportunities multiply
as they are seized."







Albert Einstein:

"There are only two ways to live your life.
 One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything
 is a miracle."







Carl Sagan:

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked
 at science and concluded, "This is better than we
 thought! The Universe is much bigger than our
 prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant
--- God must be even greater than we dreamed"?
 Instead they say, "No, no, no! My god is a little
god, and I want him to stay that way." A religion,
old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the
 Universe, as revealed by modern science, might
 be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and
awe, hardly tapped by the conventional faiths.
Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge."







Calvin and Hobbes:
 
"Oh, greatest of mass media, thank you for elevating
 emotion, reducing thought, and stifling imagination.
Thank you for the artificiality of quick solutions and
 for the insidious manipulation of human desires,
for
commercial purposes. This bowl of lukewarm
 tapioca represents my brain. I offer it in humble
 sacrifice. Bestow thy flickering light forever."







Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel:
 
"Uneducated people delight in argument & fault-
finding, for it is easy to find fault, but difficult
to recognize the good and its inner necessity.
Education in its early stages always begins
 with fault-finding, but when it is complete,
 it sees the positive element in everything.
 In religion, it is equally easy to say that
 this or that is superstition, but it is
 infinitely more difficult to
comprehend the truth
 which it contains."







Carl Sagan:

"Is our self-esteem so precarious... that nothing
 short of a universe custom-made for us will do?"







St. Augustine:

"Often, a non-Christian knows something about the
 earth, the heavens, and the other parts of the world,
about the motions and orbits of the stars and even
 their sizes and distances,... and this knowledge he
 holds with certainty from reason and experience. It
is thus offensive & disgraceful for an unbeliever to
hear a Christian talk nonsense about such things,

 claiming what he is saying, is based in Scripture.
 We should do all that we can, to avoid such an
 embarrassing situation, which people see as
 ignorance in the Christian and laugh to scorn."







Andrew Kuchins, Russia expert at Georgetown
 University and former head of Carnegie Moscow
 Centre, in a new report on US-Russian relations:

"The risk of a nuclear conflict may be higher
 today -- than at any time since the 1980s.
Unfortunately, societies and political
establishments seem, in large
 part, unaware.... that this
truly
existential threat
has
[returned]."






Former US president Dwight D. Eisenhower:

“We will bankrupt ourselves in the
vain search for absolute security.”







Mark Twain:

"If you don’t read newspapers you are uninformed.
But if you do read them, you are misinformed."







Truth teller Edward Snowden:

"If we want to have a better world we can’t hope
 for an Obama, and we should not fear a Donald
 Trump. Rather, we should build it ourselves."







President Putin, in 2012:

"The key feature of the new era, is that
no single country can cope with global
problems in the economy and politics
on its own. Risks will prevail, if each
goes ahead with playing their own
game, if the delusion that chaos
 can be kept under control, is
 not brushed aside."








XI JINPING:

"We must learn to live in a different way from before
--- we can no longer tolerate a world where the
principle is of winner takes all --- but, instead,
win-win cooperation and an understanding
 that no country can exist alone, or be
 above others.

"China's own stability and prosperity rests on
the stability and prosperity of her neighbours,
such as Russia and others across the world:
this is also evident, in that, what 1 country
needs, only another country can provide
better, and vice versa, and only with
cooperation towards each other's
needs, can we live and prosper
peacefully...

"if history has taught us anything -- it is that
 in each of us there is something of the other,
 and the world needs to act accordingly".

Lord Acton:

“…the issue which has swept down the centuries
and will have to be fought, sooner or later, is the
people versus the banks.”







The US Constitution:

"Congress shall have the power to coin
money and regulate the value thereof."







(Ex)Federal Reserve Chair, Alan Greenspan:

"The Federal reserve is an independent
agency and that means, basically, that
there's no other agency of government
that can overrule the actions we take."








Andrew Jackson (Trump's hero) 10 July 1832:

"It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the
 bounty of our Government. More than eight millions
of the stock of this bank, are held by foreigners. Is
there no danger to our liberty and independence
 in a bank that, in its nature, has so little to bind
it
to our country? Controlling our currency,
receiving
our public moneys, and holding
thousands of our
citizens in dependence
--- it would be more
formidable and
dangerous than the naval
and
military power of the enemy."








Josiah Stamp director, Bank of England, 1928:

 “If you want to continue to be slaves of the banks
and to pay the cost of your own slavery, then let
the bankers continue to create money and
control credit.”








Rockefeller’s General Education Board in 1906:

 “We shall not try to make these people or any
 of their children into philosophers, or men
of
learning, or men of science. We shall
not
search for embryonic great artists,
painters, musicians, nor lawyers,
 doctors, preachers, politicians,
or statesmen, of whom, we
 have an ample supply.”







Chris Hedges:

"Voltaire was the most famous man
of the 18th century. Today the most
famous “person” is Mickey Mouse."







"Woe unto them
 that call evil good,
and good evil."







Eduard Popov:

"Restoring the violated principle of national
sovereignty instead of the idea of 1 nation’s
global domination, restoring the ‘blooming
complexity’ of the world’s cultures instead
of an imposed & dull liberal “post-culture”,
& affirming solid moral principles, instead
 of immoral promiscuity --- this is a sample
program, which is shared by the majority
of humans. Most of humanity is opposed
 to the dominant quasi-religion of US neo
-liberalism --- or, rather, the ideology
of
Pax Americana, is opposed to
the
majority of humanity."







Historian & political scientist, Andrei Fursov:

"The problem is.. America consumes
 far more than it produces. With only
 5% of the world's population, the US
 consumes 40% of world output, and
 produces 70% of the world's waste.
 It is clear that, sooner or later,
Americans will be forced to
 cut their overconsumption."







Thomas Jefferson:

"The mass of mankind has not been born with
 saddles on their backs, nor a favored few
booted and spurred, ready to ride them
 legitimately -- by the grace of God."







Vladimir Putin:

    “It is extremely dangerous to encourage people
    to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the
    motivation. We are all different, but when we
   ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not
    forget that God created us equal.”







Hillary Clinton:

    "The United States is an exceptional nation."







F. William Engdahl:

"US elections are no longer democratic.
 Elections are rigged;-  the electronic
 voting machines can be programmed.
 Any semblances of democracy that
 used to be there, up to the 1970s,
 are gone."







Jacob G. Hornberger:

"US officials just arrested a national-security
state official, and charged him with stealing
US national-security state secrets. What are
the secrets he stole? He stole secret codes
that enable US officials to hack into the
computers of foreign regimes!"







Noam Chomsky in 'Media Control', 2002:

"One of the questions asked in the study was,
 'How many Vietnamese casualties would you
 estimate there were during the Vietnam war?'
 The average reply, on the part of Americans
today, is about 100,000. The official figure is
about 2 million. The actual figure is probably
 3 - 4 million. The people who conducted the
 study raised an appropriate question: 'What
would we think of German political culture
 if, when you asked people today how many
Jews died in the Holocaust, they estimated
about 300,000? What would that tell us
about German political culture?'"







 Jim Morrison, of The Doors:

"Whoever controls the media
 controls the mind."







Paul Street, US journalist:

"The most essential (& insidious) service in support
 of the corporate system, comes from traditionally
'liberal left' 'vanguards', most notably the UK's
Guardian newspaper. They perform the vital
function of bringing self-described liberals
 into the pro-interventionist (pro-war) camp
-- a function the right-wing press would
 have no hope of accomplishing."







Ex-Guardian journalist Jonathon Cook, on the MSM:
(Main Stream Media)

"It is okay to criticise individual western policies as
 flawed, especially if done so respectfully, but not
to suggest that the whole direction of western
foreign policy is flawed - that it is intended
to maintain a system of control over and
exploitation of weaker nations. Policies
can be dubious, but not our leaders’

moral character."







Simon Wood, journalist:

"Much is made of the 'fact' that the news-
paper is owned & run by The Scott Trust,
originally created in 1936 “to safeguard
the title’s journalistic freedom.” But the
Guardian isn't owned by a trust at all.
 In 2008, the trust was replaced by a
limited company that was re-named
“The Scott Trust Limited.”

"Though not a trust at all, but simply
 a profit-making company, it is still
referred to frequently as ‘The Scott
 Trust,’ promulgating the widely-held
 but mistaken belief in the Guardian’s
 inherently benign ownership structure."







Simon Wood, journalist:

"The role of the corporate media is to protect,
 promote and legitimize, the destructive and
 amoral aims of profit-seeking private power.

"Any journalist or columnist working within that
 system is actively aiding the corporate media
 achieve this goal. These gatekeepers, espec-
ially those regarded as liberal, are therefore
 culpable in the illegal wars and rapacious,
 planet-destroying actions of the worst
 corporations.

 "A right-thinking journalist of conscience would
extricate themselves from the machine, as the
aforementioned Jonathon Cook and Nafeez
Ahmed have done, along with famed
 journalists such as John Pilger.

"With enough big names breaking free, the
dream of a mass-market, ad-free, donation-
based investigative journalism enterprise,
 employing the best writers, would be
one step closer to reality."







Professor Sunaina Maira:

"The myth of a de-occupied Gaza and of the threat of
 rockets obscures the reality that this is a population
 that Israel is focused on devastating, starving, and
 annihilating. Israel wishes to maintain dominance
 over Palestinians by reducing the “demographic
threat”, in the context of a rising Palestinian
 population, and to undermine any possibility
 of unity between Hamas and Fatah and of
a contiguous, viable Palestinian state.

 "The siege of Gaza co-exists with a cantonization of
 the West Bank, the peripheralization & Judaization
of Jerusalem, & the repression & subjugation of
Palestinians in Israel. I view this as a condition
 of settler colonialism, where a settler colonial
state aims not just at the displacement and
dispossession, but also the elimination,
 of the indigenous population."







Sergei Mikhailov, senior research fellow at

 the Russian Institute of Strategic Studies:

"I think, after these elections, the Americans
 will have a clearer understanding of the gap
 between their vision of the world --- and the
one imposed on them by the political elite."








Reagan’s Secretary of State Alexander Haig:
 
“There are worse things than nuclear war.”







Lt Cl David Mills & Wayne H. Cox, USAF manager's
end of year report after Greenham Common peace
 woman Ann Harrower's leg was crushed, in 1983:

‘The Greenham bylaws went into effect, the
 superfence was constructed and we hit
 one peacewoman with a vehicle.’
‘It has been a productive year.
You should be proud of your
accomplishments.’








Prince Aleksandr Nevskii in the 13th century:

 "Go tell all in foreign lands, that Russia lives! Those
 who come to us in peace will be welcome as a guest.
But those who come to us sword in hand, will die by
the sword! On that, Russia stands, and forever will
we stand!








Mike Whitney, author:

"The CIA continues to back all manner of
 dodgy groups (Death squads in Nicaragua
and Iraq, neo-Nazis in Ukraine, jihadists in
 numerous locations) -- provided they help
 to advance the imperial agenda. National
security and the safety of the American
 people, simply never factor into elite
decision making. What drives the
policy is oil, power, money and
 Israel. Nothing else matters."









Blogger on RT:

"Russia has a 1,000-year-long history.
US has a 240-year-long criminal record."








Mike Whitney, author:

"The use of proxies has been used to confuse the
 public about what is really going on in Syria, but
 the facts are plain to see. The invasion's goal is
 to replace Bashar al Assad with a US-stooge,
splinter the country into multiple parts, and
 control vital pipeline corridors. Washington
 wants to create conditions on the ground
 that forever prevent the reemergence of
a strong, secular central government
 that can openly oppose US commercial
 interests, US regional hegemony, or
pose a threat to Israel.
That’s the whole ball o’ wax."









Vladimir Putin:-

"Russia believes that international law -
not the right of the strong, must apply.
And we believe that every country,
every nation, is not exceptional,
but unique, original and benefits
 from equal rights, including the
right to independently choose
 their own development path."









Rick Sterling, investigative journalist &
 member of Syrian Solidarity Movement:

"Some foreign governments seeking “regime change”
 in Damascus, have poured huge amounts of money
into what is called “smart”, or “soft power”...

"There is the Syrian Justice and Accountability
 Centre, initiated by Secretary of State, Hillary
Clinton, to prepare for victor’s justice. There's
the Syrian Network for Human Rights, which
largely ignores the deaths of Syrian soldiers
and seeks US/NATO intervention. There is
the Syrian Civil Defense, also known as
the White Helmets, a support group for
Al Qaeda/Nusra but most importantly
 a political lobbying tool, actively
 campaigning for US/NATO
intervention.

"All of these organizations, and many more,
are said to be “Syrian” and “independent.”
But they were all created after the conflict
began and they are all funded by foreign
governments that seek to overthrow
the Syrian government."









US Defense Intelligence Agency report August 2012:

 “THE SALAFIST [sic], THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD,
 AND AQI [“Al Qaeda in Iraq,” now known as ISIS
or the Islamic State] ARE THE MAJOR FORCES
DRIVING THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA.”








Mike Whitney, author:

"We need to realize, our approach to terrorism
 is all wrong. Terrorism can't be defeated by
nipping at the edges, or killing individual

 agents or groups. That hasn’t worked &
that won’t work. The cancer has to be
eradicated at its source, which, in all
probability means either dismantling
or reigning in, the CIA, and bringing
its deep-state paymasters to justice.
 That is how one wins the war on
terror."










Bentham:

"US exceptionalism is nothing but a euphemism
 for immunity, discrimination and propaganda
-- to excuse and defend war crimes
by the US Corporation."

 







Ursula Haverbeck:

"The key to the demon mind is its ability to broad-
cast
fake realities into the minds of the sheople
and
broadcast the fake effects to sheople, as
happily
agreeing with and complying with it.
Sheople
can't think, they can go along with
the herd
on TV, that's its tool in a nutshell."










Hillary Clinton:

“The transition to democracy in Syria has begun.”









Jose Marti:

 “There are two kinds of people in the world:
those who love and create, and those who
hate and destroy.”









Daniel Kovalik Int. Human Rights teacher at
 the University of Pittsburgh School of Law:

"There is no doubt that the US has proven itself to
 be of the latter kind; indeed, the very nature of US
 foreign policy is destruction. Given this, it's at best
 foolish and naïve, for people of any political stripe
-- but particularly self-defined leftists -- to put any
stock in the notion that the US is acting in the
 defense of human rights, or democracy, or any
 such lofty goals, in intervening militarily abroad.

"There is only one proper goal then, of people of
good will:-  to oppose US military intervention,

 with every fibre of our being."









Tacitus:

 "They make a desert, and call it peace."








Thomas Jefferson:

"I tremble for my country...
when
I consider that God is just."








US President Dwight D Eisenhower,
ending a final address to his people:

"We pray that, in the goodness of time, all peoples
 will come to live together, in a peace guaranteed
 by the binding force of mutual respect and love.
 As one who has witnessed the horror and the
 lingering sadness of war - as one who knows
 that another war could utterly destroy this
 civilization which has been so slowly and
painfully built over thousands of years -
 I wish I could say tonight that a
 lasting peace is in sight."









Andrey Fursov, analyst:

"We can hardly forget the events of September 11th
 - since this provocation forged the last, desperate
offensive by the most aggressive segment of the
 Anglo-American elite - seeking to save itself
at
the expense of the majority of humanity."









Former Green Beret soldier who served in Syria:

"No one on the ground believes in this mission
 or this effort -- they know we are just training
 the next generation of jihadis -- so they are
sabotaging it, saying, ‘F*ck it, who cares?’
I don't want to be responsible for Nusra
guys saying they were trained by
Americans.”








Chalmers Johnson, analyst and CIA veteran:

"The Patriot Act, adopted on October the 26th, 2001,
dramatically increased the powers of investigating

 authorities, strengthened control over the US
 population, and gave a leg up to police
arbitrariness. Thus, in the name of
fighting terrorism, a police state
was institutionalized in
 the United States."








Journalists John Stanton and Wayne Madsen:

"As often happens in history, an event solving short
-term issues, creates medium-term challenges.
To
solve the problem of the medium-term, medium-

term measures are necessary, which, in turn,
 generate long-term, systemic problems,
which
cannot be resolved without
changing the system."









Pope Francis:

“The progressive transformation of the entrepreneur into
 a speculator, is an economic illness. The speculator is
 the same as a mercenary, who has no company and
 sees workers only as a means to make profits,"








Jeremy Corbyn, January the 6th, 2012:
 
"Left parties have lost office in Europe because
of their inability to articulate an alternative to
 austerity and cuts.

 "The right offers individualism, a huge and
growing wealth gap and a mean and
divided society.

"Socialism is --- the sharing of wealth, the
contribution of ability for the common good,
and unity in defending our achievements
against attack. It's also our only hope." 







Frank Field's quotation here shows him
up for what he is: an elitist who holds

Owen Smith's hero, Aneurin Bevan:

 “The right wing of the Labour party would rather
 see it fall into perpetual decline, than abide by
 its democratic decisions.”






Relationship psychologist Oliver James:

    "The only way out is the one that, thank goodness,
   will now be taken --- which is to get rid of the right
  wing Blatcherites who make up three quarters of
  the Parliamentary Labour Party. A bunch of, you
  know, people like Caroline Flint. Second rate,
 low grade politicians. The sort of detritus.
 The rubbish that’s been cleared out and
  left at the end of new Labour."







Aneurin Bevan:

“Soon, if we are not prudent, millions of people
 will be watching each other starve to death
through expensive television sets”








Aneurin Bevan:

US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard:

“Escalating the war to overthrow Assad will make
 things even worse. It will cause more suffering
and chaos and strengthen ISIS and Al-Qaeda
 to the point where they may be able to take
over all of Syria. This would be disastrous,
 including a genocide against religious
 minorities, secularists, atheists, and
anyone who refuses to accept the
 extremist Wahabi theology.
The refugee crisis will increase
 exponentially, and it could lead to
a direct confrontation with Russia.”

The United States Peace Council (USPC):

"It is one thing for Syria's people to oppose
 their government if they choose to. It is
another thing for foreigners to take
the position of “Assad must go!”
The latter is a clear imperialist
demand that violates the 
international law."

 Ms Garcia claimed for benefits after her marriage
 had broken down, and she’d been forced to give
 up her job in finance to look after her 3 children.
 She had been struggling to pay her rent, and
contacted the DWP, to see what support
 she could receive...


Ann Goode, of the Jobcentre Plus office, Bromley:

"None of these names - Miss Cecilia Garcia - None
 of them are English names… why are we running
 around for these people? Do you know I resent
even doing this work because if I had a person
 who said:  ‘I really want a job, I want to go on
 your caseload’, yes, all the time, every day of
the week. But not some scrounging b*****d
 that’s popping out kids like pigs."







Ken Loach, prize-winning film director:

“I hope that people will recognise the impact that the
 state is having on people who're in need of financial
support and being put through a system, in which,
they are almost set up to fail.”

“A classic case in point is a doctor can say you are
 not fit to work but the state insists on assessing you
 again – they have picked an American multi-national
 to do the assessing; they are not doctors, but health
 professionals, using a series of questions that they
 reel off.

“They use a points system that makes a sick man
 or woman have to keep looking for work – it is
consistently cruel.”

result, the political agenda is now
 largely confined to policies aimed

"What does Brexit really mean?" In the long term,
the only term that counts, Brexit means humanity

ordained to ride a freight train into disaster, but
we can if we wish. Brexit is about freedom, more
so, than some ruling on same-sex marriage. It is
about civilization, about a people deciding self-
determination, rather than giving up all to think
 -tanks and elitist officials, blindly mewing like
sheep, until the bitter end. True enough, the
 banksters and Oligarchs may have concocted
 the whole scheme, but Brits can make another
"U-Turn" if this be the case. Britain has shown

 no Russian awareness of the Wolfowitz
 Doctrine. Russians think that there is
some kind of misunderstanding about
Russian intentions. Russia's media
 does not understand - that Russia is
unacceptable, because Russia is not
 a US vassal. Russians believe all the
Western bullshit about “freedom and
democracy” and believe that they're

 In other words Russians have no idea

Vladimir Putin, Munich Conference
on Security Policy, February 2007:

    "Let’s say things as they are: one hand
 distributes charitable help, and the other
hand, not only preserves economic back-
wardness, but also reaps the profits thereof.

"Increasing social  tension in the depressed
regions, inevitably results in the growth of
radicalism and extremism -- and feeds
terrorism and local conflicts.

"And if all this happens in, shall we say,
 a region like the Middle East, where
there is increasingly the sense that
 the world at large is unfair, then
 there is the risk of global
destabilisation."

world
that yields most painfully to change.”







Milton Friedman (boo!):

"Only a crisis — actual or perceived — produces
 real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions

 develop alternatives to existing policies, to
keep them alive and available, until the
 politically impossible, becomes the
 politically inevitable."







US political analyst Randy Martin
 (crookedbough.com):

“The Greek crisis has been going on for 5 years

US political analyst Randy Martin:

“Don’t forget that the NATO military alliance
 of 28 members is really just US military power
 --- outsourced in various European disguises.
NATO formations across Europe, are therefore

This is exactly what Russian government figures
 have, perceptively, been saying, for a long time.”







Dan Glazebrook:

"Yugoslavia dismembered; its resources plundered

Michael Moore:

"I think that there's something in the American
 psyche, it's almost this kind of right or privilege,

conflicts with violence. There's an arrogance
 to that concept if you think about it. To have
 to sit down and actually talk, to listen, to
 compromise ------ that's hard work."









UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn:

“The experience of Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya has
 convinced many of our own people that the elite’s
 enthusiasm for endless military interventions has
 only multiplied the threats to us --- while leaving
death and destabilisation in their wake. It is the
 conflict in Syria and the consequences of the
Iraq war which have created the conditions for
Isis to thrive and spread its murderous rule.”

Samuel Butler:

"The truest characteristics of ignorance
 are vanity and pride and arrogance."








Thomas Sankara:

"Let there be an end to the arrogance of the

“The future of President Assad must be
 decided by the Syrian people. I think it's

 countries oppose the Syrian government
 position. Meanwhile, we have lost years.
 250,000 people, have been killed. There

“Instead of wasting time and resources lamenting

Lord Palmerston's famous aphorism (in full):

"Therefore I say that it is a narrow policy to suppose
 that this country or that is to be marked out as the
 eternal ally or the perpetual enemy of England. We
 have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual
 enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual,
 and those interests, it is our duty to follow. When
we find other countries marching in the same
course, and pursuing the same objects as
ourselves, we consider them as our friends,
and we think for the moment that we are on
 the most cordial footing; when we find other
 countries that take a different view, and
thwart us in the object we pursue, it is our
 duty to make allowance for the different
manner in which they may follow out the
 same objects. It is our duty not to pass
 too harsh a judgment upon others,
because they do not exactly see things
 in the same light as we see; and it is our
 duty not lightly to engage this country
 in the frightful responsibilities of war,
because from time to time we may find
 this or that Power disinclined to concur
 with us, in matters where their opinion
and ours, may fairly differ".

 in what consists the path to salvation,
 and what is the task of the Christian:
 both for one’s own soul, and for the
mission in this world.”








US political analyst Zbigniew Brzezinski:

 "After eliminating communism
the major threat to the West
 is Christian Orthodoxy."








UNESCO Ambassador and actor Peter Ustinov:

 "Serbs are subhuman."








(ex) Ukrainian PM, Yatsenyuk:

"Those Russian terrorists in our country's
South-East, are subhuman."








P. Gubarev, progenitor of Novorossiya:

 “Everywhere, ordinary people are confronted
with what degrades them into enslaved cattle
and forces them to exist in a kind of charmed
circle. Even in the esteemed West, the much
 praised welfare state... is a thing of the past.

“Everywhere, the rich are becoming more &
more of a closed caste, the middle class is
being eroded, & the majority of people are
 being impoverished.

“Everywhere, the majority of people are being
pushed away from power. The 21st Century
will become
the ‘bitter age’ for the masses.
The trend is
obvious - the rich will become
even richer and
more powerful, and their
subjects are waiting
for progressive
atomization.


“For the first time in many centuries, they're
becoming, physically and mentally, weaker
than their masters. Ukraine’s place in the
 new reality is unfortunate. It will become
 one of the poor, diseased states.”









Russian Orthodox Church priest, Vsevolod Chaplin:

“We've proposed the economic system of socialism,
 and, if not for the military influence on the situation
 by the West, this situation would have been resolved
 by economic methods and not by military or political
pressure. Otherwise, the entire world would already
be socialist, because it's the best system. Of course
 we like socialism.”








 Alexander Medvedev, deputy head, Gazprom:

“Ukrainian transit won’t be used any more
 even if the sun and moon switch places.”








Barry Sanders:

"The greatest single assault on the environment
-- on all of us around the globe -- comes from one
 agency: the Armed Forces of the United States."








Sara Flounders:

"By every measure, the Pentagon is the largest
 institutional user of petroleum products, and
 energy in general. Yet the Pentagon has a
blanket exemption in all international
climate agreements."










Eminent journalist and filmmaker John Pilger::

 “Since 1945, over a third of the membership
of the United Nations -- 69 countries -- have
suffered
some, or all, of the following at the
hands of
America's modern fascism: they
have been
invaded, their governments
overthrown,
their popular movements
suppressed,
their elections subverted,
their people
bombed & their economies
stripped
of all protection, their societies

 subjected to a crippling siege, known
as ‘sanctions’.”










William Blum, US author:

"Why will there never be a coup d'état in Washington?
Because there's no American embassy there."








Tom Engelhardt:

“War without an antiwar movement, turns out
 to mean war without pause, war without end.”









Russia's new official Naval Doctrine,
page 20, section 54:

"A defining factor in relations with NATO remains
 that, for Russia, the following is unacceptable:
the alliance’s plan to move its infrastructure
 to the borders of Russia, and the attempts
 to give the alliance a global role."









William Blum, US author:

"Until people understand fully the worldwide suffering
 American policy has caused, we will never be able to
 stop the monster."








VV Putin in 2014:

"Everything America touches,
 becomes Libya"

 





Harvard academic Elaine Scarry:

 “Current scientific research shows that
 even a smaller nuclear arsenal, if used
in a major exchange, will still produce
a nuclear winter, causing a drop in the
 average temperature across earth,
 larger than what occurred in the Ice
 Age, 18,000 years ago, reducing
 rainfall by 45 percent…

“This new research also models what
 will happen, if a tiny fraction (.015%)
 of today’s total arsenal, is used in a
regional exchange of 50 Hiroshima-
size weapons: 44 million people will
die at once; 1 billion will die from
 starvation.”









Albert Einstein:

 "People say that it is intelligence
which makes a great scientist.
 I say they are wrong:
it is character."








Henry Kissinger:

 “The demonization of Putin is not a policy.
 It’s an alibi for not having a policy.”









Vladimir Putin:

“As you know, the modern world, especially the
 Western world, is highly monopolised, & many
 Western countries -- whether they want to hear
this, or not -- have, voluntarily, given up a
considerable part of their sovereignty. To some
 extent, this is a result of the politics of blocs.
 Sometimes we find it very difficult to come to
terms with them on geopolitical issues. It is
 hard to reach an agreement with people who
 whisper, even at home, for fear of being over-
heard by the Americans. This is not a joke,
 or a figure of speech.”








Luther Standing Bear, Oglala Lakota Indian:

"It is the mothers, not the warriors, who
create a people and guide their destiny." 









Karen Garcia:

 “When police officers can stalk, threaten, harass,
 assault, arrest, injure and kill black people for the
 crime of merely existing, I think it’s high time that
 the USA declares itself a state sponsor of terrorism.”








Former Soviet PM, Yevgeny Primakov:

"We cannot conduct reforms that
 affect the people adversely. If therapy
 drags out for decades and no gleam of
light is seen, it is certainly not in the
 interests of the country, not in the
 interests of the people."








Yevgeny Primakov:

"Can we still speak of Russia's interest in
having the S. East remain part of Ukraine?
 My answer is yes; I believe it is necessary.
 Only on this basis can the Ukrainian crisis
 be managed."

"Another question: should renouncing the
 unification of Crimea and Sevastopol with
Russia become a "concession" to the US
and its European allies? My answer is no,
 this should not be a bargaining chip in
 the negotiations."

"If the Minsk Agreements are not followed,
 should Russia in an extreme case send its
 regular troops to help militias? My answer:
 categorically no. If this happened, it would
be
beneficial for the US, which would use
the
situation to keep Europe under its
influence
for an entire century."


"Furthermore, this position would not mean
 that we are refusing to support the militias,
 who are striving for particular status within
 the structure of a Ukrainian state."









Chief Luther Standing Bear, Oglala band of Sioux:

 “We did not think of the great open plains, the
 beautiful rolling hills, and the winding streams
 with tangled growth, as ‘wild’. Only to the white
 man was nature a ‘wilderness’ and only to him
 was the land ‘infested’ with ‘wild’ animals and
 ‘savage’ people. To us it was tame. Earth was
 bountiful and we were surrounded with the
blessings of the Great Mystery. Not until the
 hairy man from the east came and with
brutal frenzy, heaped injustices upon us
and the families we loved, was it ‘wild’ for
us. When the very animals of the forest
began fleeing from his approach, then it
was that, for us, the ‘wild west’ began.” 







US General Sherman:

 "We must act with vindictive earnestness against
 the Sioux, even to their extermination:  men,
 women and children."








GENERAL SMEDLEY BUTLER JR, in 1933:

"We are a nation of gangsters and racketeers --
 whose purpose serves our supra-nationalism
of capitalism and our cultural and economic
 assault upon others."








Count Destutt de Tracy, 1754-1836:


“A theft of greater magnitude and still more ruinous,
 is the making of paper money; it is greater because
 in this money, there is absolutely no real value; it is
 more ruinous because, by its gradual depreciation
during the time of its existence, it produces the
effect which would be proration of the coins. All
those iniquities are founded on the false idea
 that money is but a sign.”








George Washington, 1732-1799:

“If ever again our nation stumbles upon
unfunded paper, it shall surely be
like death to our body politic.
This country
will crash.”









The motto of the SS was:

"Hate is our prayer."









 Yugoslavia & Serbia President, Slobodan Miloševic:

“Look at us and remember - they will do the same
 to you if you disunite and go soft. The West - this
 mad guard dog - will sink its teeth in your throat.
 Brothers, remember Yugoslavia’s fate! Do not
let
them do the same thing to you! Russians,
what do
you need Europe for? It’s hard to find
a nation that
is more self-reliant than you.
Europe needs you but
not the opposite.
It's three of you - three entire countries!
B
ut there's no unity! You have everything
you need
and it is your own: lots of land,
energy, water, science,
industry and
culture.

When we had Yugoslavia and were

 united, we felt ourselves as a great
power, able to
move mountains.
Now, because of our stupidity &

 unwillingness to listen to each
other, Yugoslavia
doesn't exist
anymore & we're all 'unwanted

 warts' on Europe's political
map - new
markets for their
expensive stuff and

 American democracy”.









Vladimir Putin:

“Russia has no intention of taking an active
 role in thwarting those who are attempting
 to construct their New World Order --- until
 their efforts start to encroach on Russia’s
 key interests, that is.

“Russia would prefer to stand by & watch
 them give themselves as many lumps as
their poor heads can take. But those who
manage to drag Russia into this process,
 through disregard for her interests, will
be taught the true meaning of pain.”









Udo Ulfkotte ex-CIA stooge & ex-editor
of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung:

“The German and US media is trying to bring war
 to the people in Europe --- to bring war to Russia.
This is a point of no return and I'm going to stand
 up and say: it is not right what I have done in the
 past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda
 against Russia --- and it is also not right, what my
 colleagues are doing and have done in the past,
 because they are bribed to betray the people ---
 not only in Germany, but all over Europe.”









German author GUNTHER GRASS:

"Is it not time for us Germans to reconsider --
whether we are of the West at all? are not
 our myths, legends, literature, fairytales,
 our music and philosophies, our poems &
character, closer to our Russian cousins,
 than we could ever be with the atlanticists?
 Why do we continue to refuse to hear the
call of the East -- where we truly belong --
with our Russian cousins?"









Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov:

“A trend of not acknowledging Russians as one of
 them, has existed in Western Europe for centuries,
 despite the fact that for at least 300 years we have
 been an inseparable part of European culture and
 politics. The periods of Russia's most active
 participation in European affairs, were marked
 by stability and peace on the continent."








Confucius on 'The Rectification of Names':

"If language is not correct, then what is said is not
 what is meant; if what is said is not what is meant,
 then what must be done, remains undone; if this
 remains undone, morals and art will deteriorate;
 if justice goes astray, the people will stand about
 in helpless confusion. Hence there must be no
 arbitrariness in what is said. This matters,
above
everything".






The BBC, France 24, Deutsche Welle,

 Fox News, CNN, the New York Times:
 
"Russia has invaded eastern Ukraine."







Mark Twain:

"The loud little handful, as usual, will shout for the war.
 The pulpit will, warily and cautiously, object, at first;
 the great, big, dull bulk of the nation will rub its sleepy
 eyes and try to make out why there should be a war,
 and will say, earnestly and indignantly, 'It is unjust
 and dishonorable, and there is no necessity for it.'
Then the handful will shout louder. A few fair men on
 the other side will argue and reason against the war
 with speech and pen, and at first will have a hearing
 and be applauded; but it will not last long; those
 others will outshout them, & presently the anti-war
 audiences will thin out and lose popularity. Before
 long you will see this curious thing: the speakers
 stoned from the platform, & free speech strangled
 by hordes of furious men who in their secret hearts
 are still at one with the stoned speakers, as earlier,
but do not dare say so. And now the whole nation,
pulpit and all, will take up the warcry, & shout itself
 hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to
 open his mouth; & presently such mouths will cease
 to open. Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies,
 putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked,
 and every man will be glad of those conscience-
soothing falsities, and will diligently study them,
and refuse to examine any refutations of them; &
 thus he will by and by convince himself the war is
 just, & will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys
 after this process of grotesque self-deception."







NATO CONSTITUTION Article 1:

"The Parties undertake, as set forth in the Charter
of the United Nations, to settle any international
dispute in which they may be involved by peaceful
means, in such a manner that international peace
and security and justice are not endangered, and
to refrain in their international relations from the
threat or use of force in any manner inconsistent
with the purposes of the United Nations."









Putin advisor, Sergei Glazyev:


“The main task the American puppet masters
 have set for the (Kiev) junta is to draw Russia
 into a full-scale war with Ukraine. It is for this
purpose that all of these heinous crimes are
 committed – to force Russia to send troops
to Ukraine to protect the civilian population.

The bankruptcy of the US financial system,
which is unable to service its foreign debt,
the lack of investments to finance a break-
through to a new technological order and
to maintain America’s competitiveness,
and a potential defeat in the geopolitical
 competition with China: to resolve these
 problems, Americans need a new world
 war.”







Paul Craig Roberts:

"Unless European governments recognize
the danger in Washington’s aggression
--- and dissolve NATO --- planet earth
hasn’t
long to live."









Point 40 of Syriza's 40 Point Manifesto:

 "Closure of all foreign bases in Greece
 and withdrawal from NATO."









Nikolai Patrushev,  Russia’s Security Council:

"The territory of the United States itself,
 which essentially established unilateral
military control over all the allies, is not
included in NATO’s zone of responsibility."









Otto Von Bismarck:

"The secret of politics? Make
 a good treaty with Russia."








Charles de Gaulle:

'Patriotism is when love of your own people
 comes first; nationalism is when hatred for
people other than your own, comes first.'






Socrates:


"All foreign wars are waged for power and money.
They are nothing but the pillage, theft and rape,
of
other countries' treasures."









Albert Einstein (On the USA):

''Everywhere you look, people are made to work
very, very hard in order to enrich the private few.
This is done, not so much by direct physical
force, but by subconsciously compelling people
 to comply with rules and regulations and laws,
created and designed for the benefit of the
 private few, and their capitalism."








 Vladimir Putin:

"We are a social welfare state. We can not be a
 country that just trades people in order to make
 the pockets of some bankers happy. If we do
 that, we cease to exist as Russia".








Marcus Tullius Cicero:

“A nation can survive its fools, & even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy
 at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and
 carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves
 amongst those within the gate freely, his sly
 whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard
in
the very halls of government itself.


“For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in
 accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their
face & their arguments. He appeals to a baseness
 that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the
 soul of a nation, he works secretly & unknown in
 the night, to undermine the pillars of the city. He
 infects the body politic, so that it can no longer
 resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor, is
the plague.”







Tony Rooke, who won a law suit v the BBC:
 
“The fact that the BBC reported the collapse
of 
WTC 7 - 23 minutes before it actually fell -

 indicates that the UK was aware of the 9/11
attacks
before they actually happened. The

 direct implication is that they were working
 with the ‘terrorists’ --- all arguments as to
who
the terrorists actually were, aside.”







George Orwell:

 “Political language is designed to make
 lies sound truthful & murder respectable
 and to give an appearance of solidity to
 pure wind.”







Saudi Arabia’s Brigadier General Asiri:

 “All we're trying to do, is make sure
that there is security in Yemen.”






Lazarus Long in Robert Heinlein's book:
(often misattributed to Mark Twain...?)

“Never try to teach a pig to sing –
it wastes your time and annoys the pig.”







Saudi Arabia's founder, King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud:

 “The good or evil -- for us -- will come from Yemen.”







Harold Pinter's 2005 Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech:

“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted
 uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery,
 degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it
 ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’.
How many people do you have to kill before you
 qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a
war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than
 enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just
 that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the
International Criminal Court of Justice.”







Retired US Air Force Lieutenant
Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski:

“What the US government is focused on
 is putting arms out there and creating
 bias for those arms. The US taxpayer
 subsidizes foreign weapon sales. So
we're always out there, our govern-
ment is always out there looking for
 places to market our weapons.
US foreign policy is aimed at creating
markets for US weaponry and is good
at it, not at solving crises, promoting
 good governments, etc.
That’s not our expertise. We don’t
spend
time and money on that. We
spend time
and money on creating
consumers for
our weapons.”






Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr:

 "We are called to play the Good Samaritan
on life’s roadside, but that will be only an
initial act. One day we must come to see
 that the whole Jericho Road must be
 transformed so that men and women will
 not be constantly beaten and robbed as
 they make their journey on life’s highway.”






Sun-Tzu:


 “If you know the enemy and know yourself,
you need not fear the result of a hundred
 battles. If you know yourself but not the
 enemy, for every victory gained you will
 also suffer a defeat. If you know neither
 the enemy nor yourself, you will
 succumb in every battle.”








Prominent neoconservative Richard Perle:

“There will be no stages. This is total war.
 We are fighting a variety of enemies. There
 are lots of them out there... If we just let our
 vision of the world go forth and we embrace
 it entirely and we don’t try to piece together
clever diplomacy, but just wage a total war,
our children will sing great songs about us
years from now.”








Todd E. Pierce:

“When we allow our 'Conservative Revolutionaries'
 (or neoconservative militarists or proto-fascists
 or whatever term best describes them) to make
 foreign policy, the US loses legitimacy in the
 world as a 'rule of law' state. Instead, we
 present a 'fascist' justification for our
 wars, which is blatantly illicit.”








Todd E. Pierce:

“As the American political establishment
 has become so enamored with war & the
 “warriors” who fight them, it has become
 child’s play for our militarists to manipul-
  ate the US into wars or foreign aggression,
 through promiscuous economic sanctions
 or by inciting and arming foreign groups to
destabilize the countries that we target.”







Qu Xing, China’s ambassador to Belgium:

“The United States is unwilling to see
its presence in any part of the world
being weakened, but the fact is, its
 resources are limited, & it will be, to
some extent, hard work to sustain
its influence in external affairs.”








Iran's Navy Commander
 Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari:

"The world has 9 important waterways
 and Iran controls 5 of them."









George Friedman, head of Stratfor, Feb 4, 2015:

"The primordial interest of the United States,
over which for centuries we have fought wars
 - the First, the Second and the Cold Wars - has
 been the relationship between Germany and
Russia, because, united, they are the only
force
that could threaten us;-  and to
make sure, that
that doesn't happen."









Richard Sakwa:


"What is the point of the EU, if it cannot
 even prevent war on its own continent?"








Goethe:

“The best slave is the person
who believes they are free.” 








Field Marshal Montgomery:

 “Rule 1, on page 1 of the book of war, is:
 ‘Don't march on Moscow’. Various people
 have tried it, Napoleon and Hitler, and it's
no good. That is the first rule. [Rule 2] is:
Do not go fighting with your land armies
in China.









Anonymous:

An academic was walking in a lane,
 and came face to face with a tramp.
 The lane was too narrow for the two
 to pass. The academic drew himself
 up to his full height, saying: "I never
 make way for fools!" Smiling broadly,
 the old tramp stepped aside & said:
 "I always do, sir."






Sa'di:


'the sun, the moon, the planets, the air,
the water and the earth are all serving you,
aiding life's purpose and preparing your food.
Yet you regard all this unthankfully, absorbed
in your own little troubles which are as nothing
before the great forces of nature, always
working, night and day'.







John F. Kennedy:

“What kind of peace do we seek? Not a
Pax Americana enforced on the world

 by American weapons of war. Not the
peace of the grave or the security of
the
slave. I am talking about genuine
peace,
the kind of peace that makes
life on
earth worth living.”






NATO General Secretary Mr. Woerner
 in Brussels on the 17th of May, 1990:

“The fact that we are ready not to place
a NATO army outside German territory,
gives the Soviet Union a firm security
 guarantee."






 Pablo Iglesias, leader of Spain's Podemos:

"One shouldn't forget that the EU supported
 the illegal change of power in Ukraine, and
the
coming of a neo-Nazi party to Ukraine's
 government. Some European leaders took
part in public events in
Ukraine,
together
with neo-Nazis
. This is too far from
European values."







George Friedman on what to do in Ukraine:

 "We must do as the British did. They did not
 at one time occupy India, but simply took
 control of individual Indian kingdoms and
set them against each other --- and they
placed their officers in the Indian Army."







Professor Michel Chossudovsky:

“What distinguishes the Bush and Obama
 administrations, is that the concentration
 camps, targeted assassinations & torture
 chambers, are now openly considered as
 legitimate forms of intervention, which
 sustain ‘the global war on terrorism’ and
 aid the spread of ‘Western democracy.’”







President of Syriza, 40-year-old Alexis Tsipras:

"Today the Greek people has written history,
 Hope has written history... Greece is turning
a page. Greece is leaving the austerity of
 catastrophe and fear... there are no losers
 and winners. Those who've been defeated
 are the elite & oligarchs. We're regaining
 our dignity, our sovereignty again."








Rob Urie, author:

"The economic policies forced on Greece
 were more draconian than in the US and
 European core, but by degree -- not type.
Wall Street, which includes major German
and French banks, has used manufactured
 crises to affect ‘soft’ coups around the globe
 for decades. Debt is used as a weapon. The
Greek people have a very difficult battle to
fight. But the neo-liberal coup is international.
 Americans and Northern Europeans who think
 they are on the ‘winning’ side, just haven’t had
 their jobs and life savings stolen - yet. To one
 degree or another, we are all Greeks now."







Paul Craig Roberts:

"The Greek economic crisis is the result of
austerity policies forced on Greece's people
 in order to prevent the private banks from
 making losses on their loans to Greece.
 "The purpose of the austerity policy was to
 establish that Greek people are responsible
 for the bankers' mistakes, not the bankers;
to make ordinary people cover the bankers'
losses, by accepting cuts in
employment,
p
ensions, public services, and by selling
off public assets at bargain prices to the
banks' clients.
"IMF loans and conditionality programs
are the
mechanism by which countries
are looted. No
state has ever benefited
from an IMF program:
only the creditors
of the country benefit."








The International Union of Food Workers:

 “Austerity isn't the product of a deficient
grasp
of macroeconomics, or a failure of
‘social dialogue,’
it is a conscious blue-
print for expanding corporate
power.”







Rob Urie, author:

"E.C.B. bankers might really believe that
‘expansionary austerity’ policies would
allow Greeks to pay un-repayable debts,
 but, by implementing policies that have
a long history as imperial plunder, they
have that history to answer for.
 "The serial capitulation by the so-called
 European left, to these neo-imperialist
policies, only makes sense if the Party
 leaders see themselves on the ‘inside’
of the imperial divide."







First Nation saying:

the disease."







Haile Selassie I Of Ethiopia:

"Until the philosophy which holds one race
 superior and another inferior, is finally and
 permanently discredited and abandoned,
 everywhere is war; and until there are no
 longer 1st-class and 2nd-class citizens of
 any nation, until the colour of a man's skin
is of no more significance than the colour
 of his eyes, and until basic human rights
 are equally guaranteed to all without regard
 to race, there is war; and until that day, the
dream of lasting peace, world citizenship,
 and the rule of international morality, will
 remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
 but never attained. Now, everywhere is war."   

 
 



Andre Vltchek:

"Humankind rests on the brink of annihilation,
 for no other reason than the American pursuit
 of unlimited profit.  They are the extremists of
 the capitalist system."





Chief of Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces,
General Viktor Muzhenko:

“No Russian troops are fighting against us:
the only Russian citizens who are fighting
in the contested region, are residents in
that region, or of Ukraine, and also some
Russian citizens who are members of
illegal armed groups.








 Paul Craig Roberts:

“As long as Washington controls Europe, Russia
 has no prospects of being a part of the West,
unless Russia becomes Washington’s puppet
state, like Germany, Britain, and France.”








Mike Harris, an editor of Veterans Today:

“It’s time for the US to grow up and start
being a better world citizen. Our foreign
 policy has been hijacked, and the US is
 run by a criminal cabal sitting in the city
 of London and Israel. And it is time for
 the American people to seize control
of their own government & end this
corruption and put these people in
 prison or hang them for treason,
as
needed.”






Alexandr Solzhenitzyn:

“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it
 so deep within us that no sign of it appears
 on the surface, we are implanting it, and it
 will rise up a thousand fold in the future.
 
When we neither punish nor reproach
evil-doers, we aren't simply protecting
their trivial old age, we are thereby
ripping the foundations of justice
from beneath new generations.”









Andre Vltchek:

 "We must hope that the skillful diplomacy
 we have seen employed by both Russia
 and China, the increased pace of their
bilateral cooperation with each other
and their increased steps to achieve
 multilateral cooperation throughout
 the world, from Latin America to
Africa and Europe and Asia, will
change the power dynamics of
 the world sufficiently to prevent
 the Americans and their allies
from achieving their aims, so that
 the peoples of the world can live in
 peace and devote their energies to
 solving humanity’s pressing problems."






Lao Tzu:

"To know the truth is the best thing.
To know that you do not know is
the second best.
To pretend to know

Ara Stepanyan, the executive secretary of
the Academy of Geopolitical Issues, when
asked, on the 12th of December, in 2013:
'If Ukraine were to join the Customs Union,
 what would the European Union do?':

"First of all, they will impose sanctions
 against individual leaders or politicians
 in Ukraine - those who sign the Customs
 Union. If they have accounts, they will
be
arrested as criminal, anti-democratic
 ...and so on. Then they will permanently
 organize and provoke riots, rallies and,
 of course, form public opinion, as they
 do today, by saying that the police
allegedly applied excessive force."







Paul Craig Roberts:

“While Washington presents Europe
with war and sacrifice, Russia and
 China offer trade and friendship.”








Adolf Hitler, in Mein Kampf:

think of Russia and the border States
 subject to her."








 Arnold Toynbee, historian:

 "The West's policy toward Russia
 is one of aggression."








Paul Craig Roberts:

"Washington is comprised of 3 elements:
 Arrogance, Hubris, and Evil. There is
nothing else there."







President Eisenhower:

“Unleashing of the atomic infernos on mostly
 civilian populations was simply this: an act of
 supreme terrorism and of barbarity callously
 calculated by the US planners to demonstrate
 their country’s demonic power to the rest of
the world - and the Soviet Union in particular.”







Bertrand Russell:

"War does not determine who is right

President al-Assad of Syria:


"Despair is the beginning and essence of defeat
 and defeat is primarily psychological."







sheik imran hossein:

"The world is being taken for a ride by the great
western countries & their systems, for everything.
It is a case of do as I tell you and not do as I do.

"Rightly, both the US and UK should be bankrupt.
To recover, they should be selling their banks,
industries and other assets, at fire-sale prices.
That was what the Asian countries were
 forced to do, after currency traders forced
many of them almost into bankruptcy.

"But the bankrupt powerful countries of the West
don’t have to do that. They carry out Quantitative
Easing, print money (issue cheques) and refinance
their banks and bankrupt industries: and they talk
about transparency in business practice!"








William Wordsworth:
 
"Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers."








Cypriot economics professor, Andreas Theophanous:

"There’s a huge solidarity deficit in the European Union
 and in the Troika, which is much higher than any fiscal
 deficit or public debt of any country in the European south."








Hugo Chavez:

"If I keep quiet, the stones would cry out
for the people of Latin America,
who are willing to be free
after 500 years of colonialism."









Before Chavez underwent his last operation,
 he explained why he had chosen Maduro:

"He's one of the young leaders with the greatest ability
 to continue, if I'm unable to: with his firm hand, with his
 gaze, with his heart of a man of the people, with his gift
 for people, with his intelligence, with the international
recognition he's earned, with all his leadership skills."








Nicolas Maduro, Chavez' successor:

"Our people will never again see the
bourgeoisie plundering this country.

Better to be dead, than traitors to
the people and to Chavez!"







Nicolas Maduro:

"Be dignified inheritors of the giant man.
Let there be no weakness, no violence.
Let there be no hate. In our hearts
there should only be one sentiment:
Love. Love, peace and discipline."










Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega:

"The US is not supporting liberty,
they are promoting servitude"









(ex) US President Obama:

"No country on earth would tolerate missiles
raining down from outside its borders."







James Fetzer, an editor at Veterans Today:

"The United States has become the greatest aggressor
nation in the world --- and our country is increasingly

record that the United States descended into that
deep, dark, black abyss, typified by war criminals."








Imam Ali (A):

"A cunning enemy is better than a foolish friend!"






Ex (Lol) Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper:

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881):

“..the world is governed by very different
personages from what's imagined by
those who aren't behind the scenes.”






Woodrow Wilson,(1856-1924):

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly
had men’s views confided to me privately.
Some of the biggest men in the United States,
in the field of commerce and manufacture,
are afraid of something. They know that
there is a power somewhere so organised,
so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked,
so complete, so pervasive, that they had
better not speak above their breath
when they speak in condemnation of it.”






President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933:

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know,
that a financial element in the larger centres has
owned the government since the days of
Andrew Jackson.”






In America one slave law decreed:

"Slaves have no souls, no wit, no intelligence, and no will.
Their life is concentrated in their muscles."







José Luis Centella:

"The Spanish left, as is the case in the rest of Europe,
faces the challenge of showing there are alternatives
to capitalism. Doing this requires learning from all
previous historical processes, but not copying them."






Ali Larijani:

“...in the past two years the US has sold more than
USD 18 billion in arms in the Persian Gulf region.”






José Luis Centella:

"What fascism attempts to do is to identify the
immigrant,
your neighbour, as the enemy, to
leave capitalism unscathed.
The role of our
party is to show who the real enemy is:
a
system which has plundered Spain as it
has many other countries."







Iran’s Expediency Council Chairperson
Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani:

“Through injustice, they first make people

always happens, how incapable must Man
be, of learning from experience."






Stephen Biko:

"The most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor
is the mind of the oppressed."







José Luis Centella:

"The European left must be conscious
that at this time in history, Europe is in the
rearguard in this confrontation with capitalism.
Today we in Europe have to learn, as opposed
to teach."






French political analyst Coralie Delaume:

 "The size of debts and budget deficits are the
 only things that Europe worries about today.
 European Monetary Union is getting weaker
 by the day. Stupefied Europeans no longer
 understand what awaits them... From an
economic and political standpoint, the
European Union is a spherical fiasco
 in a vacuum: No matter which side
 you look at it from, your gaze is
met with catastrophe"





President Rafael Correa:

"That societies control markets
- and not the other way around -
is an aspiration of the movement
of Ecuador & the other progressive
countries in Latin America."






The former Iranian President Ahmadinejad:

"We have to be astute, alert. If we do not
propose a new future world order, we will
inherit one created by slave owners and
capitalists, who will impose and control
the new system."







Howard Zinn:

“Terrorism has replaced Communism as
the rationale for the militarization of the
country, for military adventures abroad,
and for the suppression of civil liberties
at home. It serves the same purpose;-
to create hysteria.”






Israeli Premiere Shimon Peres, in April 1963:

“I can tell you forthrightly, that we will not
introduce atomic weapons into the region.
We certainly will not be the first to do so.
We have no interest in that. On the
contrary,
our interest is in de-
escalating the armament

tension, even in total
disarmament.”







UK Stop the War Coalition:

“The US and its allies remain silent
over Israel's covert nuclear arsenal
--- the only one in the Middle East."






Major General Zhang Zhaozhong:

"China will not hesitate to protect Iran,
even with a Third World War."







Professor Noam Chomsky:

"There is no justification for targeted assassination..
Bush administration policy was to kidnap suspects
and send them to secret prisons where they were
not treated very nicely, as we know. But Obama's
 administration has escalated that policy
to 'you
don't kidnap them, but you kill them.'
Now,
remember, these are suspects."







Vladimir Kondakov, shaman:

"Do you think the world is based on the good?
No, it is based on a balance of the good and
the evil. Now, the evil prevails, and it is not
that God is evil or weak. Evil is in humans."






Anthropologist Margaret Mead:

"Never doubt that a small group of
thoughtful citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has."






Eglantyne Jebb, founder, Save the Children:

Bobby Sands:

"Our revenge will be the laughter of our children."







Naomi Klein, on the '99%' movement:

“We found each other... this time we have to succeed.”







Vice Admiral Sir Jeremy Blackham:

"The inconvenient truth is that Libya was
only feasible, because US forces first
destroyed Libya's air defences and
then provided 75% of all air
support missions."






Tom Engelhardt:

“In the badlands and backlands of the planet,
 however, the spectacle of slaughter never ends,
even if the only Americans watching are some-
times unnerved drone video analysts. Could
 there be a sadder tale of a demobilized
citizenry, than that?”





President Assad of Syria


"Is this a revolution and are these revolutionaries?
By God, I say they are a bunch of criminals." 






The late Hugo Chávez
(to the 2011 UN General Assembly):

“For us, it is obvious that the UN is not
improving, nor will it improve from the
inside.

If the Secretary General, along with
the President of the International
Criminal Court, take part in an act
of war --- as in the case of Libya ---
nothing can be expected from the
current structure of this organization
and there is no longer time for reform.”

“It is unbearable that there is a Security
Council that turns its back, whenever it
wants to, on the clamour of the majority
of nations, by deliberately failing to
acknowledge the will of the General
Assembly. If the Security Council
is some sort of club with privileged
members,  what can the General
Assembly do? Where is its room for
maneuver, when Security Council
members violate international law?

“If we do not make a commitment, once
and for all, to rebuild the United Nations,
this organization will lose its remaining
credibility. Its crisis of legitimacy will
be accelerated until it finally implodes.
In fact, that is what happened to its
immediate predecessor: the League
of Nations.”







Fidel Castro:

"At a time when NATO, spearheaded by the
US, France and the UK, is warring to gain
control of resources in key Middle Eastern
& African states, Palestine’s long fight for
statehood will be overwhelmingly endorsed
by the General Assembly on September 20th.

"Whether this inalienable right of its people,
who have never given up the struggle, will
be more than a symbolic 194th seat ---
depends on whether the UN can regain
its role as an organization taking positive
action for world peace, rather than being
utilized for neocolonial wars."






Walter Lippman:

“The news and the truth are not the same thing”






Algerian State Minister Abdelaziz Belkhadam:

“The Arab League is no longer a league, and it’s
far from Arab, since it asks the Security Council
to intervene against 1 of its founding members,
and calls upon NATO, to destroy the resources
of Arab countries.”







Bolivian President Evo Morales:

"This millennium belongs to the peoples
and not the oligarchies, if we want real
equality, & freedom for all, worldwide."






Gerald Celente:

“When people have nothing left to lose, they lose it.”






The Rev. Martin Luther King:

“There was a time when the church was very
powerful. It was during that period that early
Christians rejoiced, when they were deemed
worthy to suffer for what they believed.

"In those days the church was not merely a
thermometer that recorded the ideas and
principles of popular opinion; it was the
thermostat that transformed the mores
of society.”






Bolivian President Evo Morales:

"Capitalism is not the solution to the current
problems of mankind. Mankind is waiting for a
new political thesis about the rights of Mother
Earth, of natural resources, of life in general."






Vladimir Putin:

"The models of development based on growing debt
don't work."






Bolivian President Evo Morales:

"Cuba is always a source of inspiration
and despite an economic, commercial
and financial blockade imposed by the
US for half a century ------ it represents
the first country in solidarity with the
rest of the world. That solidarity is
unmatchable: I can never find
the means to repay it."







Nouriel Roubini:

"Karl Marx had it right. At some point,
capitalism can destroy itself. You cannot
keep on shifting income from labour to capital
without having an excess capacity and a lack
of aggregate demand. That’s what has happened."







Brian Willson:

"We've become addicted to a material way of life
that requires imperial policies ------ to extract all
these resources around the world, funnel them
to 4.6% of the world's population; demeaning,
impoverishing, murdering, maiming people all
over the world, who are in the way of our
precious metals needed for our cell
phones and our computers, in
the Congo...

"And we are facing a massive correction
of our wayward ways in the West."







Paul Craig Roberts:

"There is nothing left of the American character.
Only a people who have lost their soul could
tolerate the evil that emanates from Washington."







Financial analyst Max Keiser:

"London is the world’s capital of fraud".







Noam Chomsky:

"As long as the general population is passive,
apathetic, diverted to consumerism or hatred of
the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they
please, and those who survive will be left to
contemplate the outcome."







Malcolm X:

"If you're not careful, the newspapers
will have you hating the oppressed
and loving the people doing the
oppressing."







Ayatollah Khomeini:

“Muslims must awake. Today is not a time
for each Muslim to lead a special existence
in some corner. This cannot be. At a time
like this, when the policy of the superpowers
is to devour every part of the world, Muslims
must awake... I do not have a hope in most of
the governments, but the nations must awake
and come under the banner of Islam...”







Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar:

“A person who, irrespective of religious creed,
aspires for spiritual expansion, or who does
something concrete, is a Tantric.

"Tantra is neither a religion nor an 'ism'.
Tantra is a fundamental spiritual science.
So wherever there is any spiritual practice,
it should be seen that it rests on Tantra.

"Where there is no spiritual practice, where
people pray to God for the fulfilment of
narrow worldly desires; where people’s only
slogan is “Give us this and give us that” –
only there, is Tantra discouraged.

"Only those who do not understand Tantra,
or even after understanding Tantra,
do not want any spiritual practice,
oppose the cult of Tantra.”







Jesus Christ:

"In the house of my father are many mansions."







The Prophet:

"Each soul has its own religion."







Gaddafi, at the 2008 Arab Summit:

"How can we accept that a foreign power comes to
topple an Arab leader while we stand watching?
Saddam had once been an ally of Washington...
but they sold him out. Your turn is next.
Where is the Arabs' dignity, their future,
their very existence? Everything has
disappeared."







Malcolm X:

"Look at yourselves. Some of you teenagers,
students. I belong to a generation ahead of
you - how do you think I feel to have to tell
you...

'We, my generation, sat around like a knot
on a wall, while the whole world was
fighting for its human rights..
.
'and you've got to be born into a society
where you still have that same fight.'

What did we do, who preceded you ?
I'll tell you what we did. Nothing.

And don't you make the same
mistake we made...."







Michael O'Hanlon, the Brookings Institution:

"Make no mistake about it. If you look at
the casualties from violence, Iraq is still
comparable to Afghanistan today.

"That's counter- intuitive to most people, who
think of Afghanistan as going up in flames and
Iraq as settling down. But in fact, while Iraq's
violence is 90% reduced from what it used to be,
it's still much higher than most of the region."







Former CIA officer Michael Scheuer:

"We have backed the wrong horse for 50 years.
To think that the Egyptian people are going to
forget that we backed dictators for 50 years,
I think, is a pipe dream."







Iranian Blogger:

"Today, the USA and Britain are
the most hated countries in the world."







Russian Prime Minister Valdimir Putin:

"How can one intervene in defense of the
civilian population, while adopting methods
that are increasing the number of victims?"







Calon Lan (Welsh folk song):

''I ask not for ease and riches

Nor earth's jewels for my part

But I have the best of wishes

For a pure and honest heart.''







Mwambustya Ndebesa, lecturer,
Uganda's Makerere University:

"Unity should be for the transformation of society
to live a better life --- but if it is for enslavement,
then you first gain independence, & then you can
negotiate how you can cooperate on equal terms."







Dr Martin Luther King:

“We know through painful experience that freedom
is never voluntarily given by the oppressor;
it must be demanded by the oppressed.”







Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Russia:

"..the US has overstepped its national borders in every
way. This is visible in the economic, political, cultural
and educational policies it imposes on other nations.
Well, who likes this? Who is happy about this?"







George H. Bush:

"Whatever the US says, goes".







Fidel Castro:

"Intellectuals can perhaps provide an enormous
service to humanity...... It is not about trying to
save humanity in terms of millenniums, maybe
not even in terms of centuries. The problem
is that our species is facing new problems,
and has not even learned to survive."

"If we can achieve intellectuals’ understanding of
the risk that we are experiencing at this moment,
to which a response cannot be postponed, perhaps
they will manage to persuade the most self-satisfied,
incapable beings ever to have existed: we politicians."







District governor of Arghandab, Southern
Afghanistan, Shah Muhammed Ahmadi:

"We've had to destroy many villages, to make them safe."







Paul Craig Roberts:

The enemy will be defeated & the Vietnamese people
will build a Vietnam ten times more beautiful."







Turkey's Prime Minister Erdogan:

"Our prayers, cries and screams have
been
echoing in the sky for 1,300 years.
Nobody is superior to anyone in these lands,
not the Sunni to the Shiites, not the Turkish
to the Kurdish, the Laz to the Circassian
or the Persian to the Arabs. We are all the
same in this land, together, brothers."







Ex UK Prime Minister Tony Blair:

“We invaded Iraq because the Arabs
need someone to run their affairs.”







Former President of Iran, Ahmadinejad :

"Americans are worse than the most dictatorial dictators.
They assassinate nuclear scientists because they're
not strong enough to counter the Iranian nation,
and think a nation will step back with the
assassination of its loved ones."







Mahatma Gandhi:

"Fear has its uses... but cowardice has none."







William K. Black:

"The best way to rob a bank is to own one."






John Connally, Nixon's Treasury secretary:

Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Minister of
Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cuba:

of the alteration of the world climatic system
is the pattern of unsustainable production and
 consumption that prevails in the developed countries."







William Colby, former CIA Director:

"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone
of any significance in the major media."







Bruce Lee’s character in “Enter The Dragon”:

“Remember, the enemy has only images and
illusions behind which, he hides his true motives;
destroy the image - & you will break the enemy.”







Ayatollah Kamenei, Iran's leader:

“The extensive propaganda of the enemy to
spread Islamophobia, its offhand efforts to create
discord among Muslim sects, to incite sectarian
prejudices, to bring about pseudo-confrontations
between the Sunnis and the Shi’ah, to create
disunity between Islamic states & to aggravate
their differences, to change them into hostility
and unsolvable conflicts, its employment of
intelligence & espionage outfits to propagate
corruption & immorality amongst the youth —
all these are nervous & bewildered responses
to the steady and firm advances of the Islamic
Ummah towards awakening, honour & freedom.”







The International Monetary Fund ( ! ):

“Violent protests could break out in countries
worldwide  if the financial system is not
restructured to benefit everyone,
rather than a small elite.”

Rothschild's mother:

"If my sons do not want war...

Cuba's Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez:

"In order to survive, a leap in the consciousness
of humanity is essential, one which is only
possible via the dissemination of truthful
information about those issues which are
hidden or ignored by most politicians,
not published by the press, and which
people find so horrifying, as to seem
unbelievable."

Party, a major party in Israel's government NOW!:

"Goyim [non-Jews] were born only to serve us.
Without that, they have no place in the world;

they will reap. We will sit like a master & eat."

Evo Morales, President of Bolivia:

"The mining communities were great
revolutionaries, aiming to transform."







Fidel Castro:

"Here is a conclusion I’ve come to after many years:
among all the errors we may have committed, the
greatest of them all --- was that we believed that
someone really knew something about socialism
or that someone actually knew how to build
socialism".







Dr Martin Luther King:

"We must rapidly begin the shift from a ‘thing-
oriented’ society to a ‘person-oriented’ one.
When machines, computers, profit motives
and property rights, are considered more
important than people, the giant triplets
of racism, materialism, and militarism,
are incapable of being conquered.”

From “When Silence Is Betrayal,”
Riverside Church, April the 4th, 1967.







Fidel Castro:

"Why can't the world act like a family?
We have no other planet to move to.

"Venus, named for the god of love, is
terribly hot. The star closest to Earth
is four light years away.

"We can't move. Our life is here, on
this planet, the only one we truly have.

"I think we have to behave like a family
and share what we have: some have oil,
some food, those beyond, doctors…

"Why can't we think of the earth as the
home of a single human family?"

dynamic ones."







The late Wangari Maathai:

"..soil is lost through wind erosion in areas
where the land is devoid of vegetative cover.
Losing topsoil should be considered analogous
to losing territory to an invading enemy."







Fidel Castro:

"We have a responsibility to provide information
about the situation. To produce the amount of
wheat the country consumes, 400,000 hectares
of this crop is needed --- with a yield equivalent
to that attained in the United States."

"We have to inform the people of what can be
extracted from every square metre of land
in our country."

run our governments.”







Albert Einstein:

"Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be
achieved by understanding. You cannot subjugate
a nation forcibly unless you wipe out every man,

drastic measures, you must find a way of
settling your disputes without resort to arms".





British Army Journal (1949):

"The best defense against the atom bomb

J. M. Barrie:

"Temper is a weapon we hold by the blade."









A. Solzhenitsyn:

"One should never direct people towards happiness,
because happiness too is an idol of the market-place.
One should direct them towards mutual affection.
A beast gnawing at its prey can be happy too,
but only human beings can feel affection for each other,
and this is the highest achievement they can aspire to."









President José Mujica of Uruguay:

"Peace is the antidote for
 the hate generated by wars."








SAINT CADOC THE WISE:

“I hate the judge who loves money,
the scribe who loves war,
chiefs who do not guard their subjects,
and nations without vigour.

I hate houses without dwellers,
lands untilled,
fields that bear no harvest,
landless clans,
the agents of error,
the oppressors of truth.

I hate him who respects not father or mother,
those who make strife among friends,
a country in anarchy,
lost learning,
and uncertain boundaries.

I hate journeys without safety,
families without strength,
lawsuits without reason,
ambushes and treasons,
faults in counsel,
and justice unhonored.

I hate a man without a trade,
a labourer without freedom,
a society without teachers,
false witnesses before a judge,
the undeserving exalted to high position.”









Pope St. Gregory I:

  "Those who make private property of the gift of God
pretend in vain to be innocent. For, in thus retaining
the subsistence of the poor, they are the murderers
of those who die every day for the want of it."









Pope Francis:

“A people that cares neither for its youth
nor for its older people, has no future.”










Hazrat Inayat Khan:

"It is not necessary that everyone should become
 religious, or exceedingly pious, or too good to live.

We want wise men in business, in politics, in
 education, in all walks of life; those who do not
 live only on the surface and those who do not
 believe only in matter, but who see life both
within and without. It is such souls who will
produce beauty; it is such souls who will
 harmonize the world, who will bring about
 the conditions we need today."








Black Elk:

"The first peace, which is most important, is that
 which comes within the souls of men when they
 realize their relationship, their oneness with the
 universe and all its powers, and when they realize
 that at the centre of the universe dwells the Great
 Spirit, and that this centre is really everywhere, it
 is within each of us."







Mahatma Gandhi:

“It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's
 important. You have to do the right thing. It may
 not be in your power, may not be in your time,
that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean
you stop doing the right thing. You may never
 know what results come from your action. But
 if you do nothing, there will be no result.”








Hazrat Inayat Khan:

"You can have all good things - wealth, friends,
kindness, love to give and love to receive ---
 once you have learned not to be blinded by
them,
learned to escape from disappointment
and from repugnance at the idea that things
are not as you want them to be."









Black Elk, Oglala Sioux & Spiritual Leader (d.1950):

“Peace will come to the hearts of men, when
 they realize their oneness with the universe.
 It's everywhere: the Holy Land is everywhere.”









Seneca the younger:

"Religion is regarded by the common people
 as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers
 as useful"








Hazrat Inayat Khan:

"Gentleness, mildness, respect, humility, modesty,
self-denial, conscientiousness, tolerance and
 forgiveness, are considered by the Sufi, as the
 attributes which produce harmony within one's
 own soul, as well as within that of another."








Investigative journalist Peter Oborne:

‘The men and women who advocated the
 Iraq invasion, remain dominant in British
 public life. Those who opposed it remain
 marginal and despised.’






In "Pride and Prejudice" Jane Austen:

"I have no pretension whatever to that kind
of elegance which consists in tormenting
 a respectable man."






"Thou shalt not bear false witness
 against thy neighbour."







Strategic risk consultant & lecturer William Engdahl:

"The Eurasian Century today is inevitable and
 unstoppable. Built on different principles of
 cooperation rather than domination, it just
 might offer a model for the bankrupt US
and the soon-bankrupt EU, to build up
true prosperity not based on looting
and debt slavery."








US President, General Eisenhower:

“I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can,
only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility,
 its stupidity. Every gun that is made, every war-
ship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in
the
final sense, a theft from those who hunger
and
are not fed, those who are cold & are not
clothed. This world in arms, is not spending

money alone. It is spending the sweat of its
 labourers, the genius of its scientists, the
hopes of its children. This is not a way
of life at all, in any true sense. Under
the clouds of war, it is humanity
hanging on a cross of iron.”








Inayat Khan:

''Among millions of believers in God, there is
 hardly one who makes God a reality. To so
 many He is an imagination, to many He is
 in a mosque, a church, or a temple. Many
wonder if God is, really.

''Many others think God is goodness, He is a personality
separate from us, He is most high, most pure, most
beautiful, but He is separate and difficult to reach.
Many think that as it takes so long to reach this
planet or that, God must be further away still.

''The purpose of one's whole life is to make God a reality...
if you will seek for good in everything, you will always
find it, for God is in all things, and, still more, He is
in all beings.

''Seek Him in all souls, good and bad, wise and foolish,
attractive or unattractive, for in the depth of each,
there is God... He is all around and about us at
every moment, we are living His life, we are
breathing His breath ------ and yet we are
ignorant of the perfection of beauty
which unites and inspires
every soul.''







Lao Tse:

"The wise puts himself last,
 finds himself in the lead."








John Lennon:

“The people have the power, all we have to do
is awaken that power in the people. The people
are unaware. They are not educated to realize
that they have power. The system's so geared
that everyone believes the government will
fix
everything. We are the government.”







The Book of Odes:

‘A bird sings out to draw a friend’s response.’







  Hazrat Inayat Khan:

The innermost being of mankind is the real being of God.
All meditation and contemplation, are taught with this
purpose: to harmonize one's innermost being with
God, so that He is seeing, hearing, thinking
through us, and our being is a ray of His
light. In that way, we are even closer
to God, than the fishes are, to the
ocean, in which, they have
their being.''
