The Paris Attacks -What's Going On ?
international | rights, freedoms and repression | opinion/analysis Sunday November 22, 2015 02:25 by T
It is over a week since the Paris Attack and the slaughter of innocent people. Europe is now suffering the spillover of the terrorism and wars launched by Western powers including France on the Middle East and Arab world for over a decade now and it seems the war is being brought home.
6th July 2012, War criminal Abou Saleh (Brigade Farouk) was special guest of President FranÃ§ois Hollande (young man facing the camera). He had directed the Islamic Emirate of Baba Amr and ordered more than 150 people to have their throats cut in public
The Paris Attacks which seem to be either some form of severe blowback for France for its activities of funding and supporting the very same terrorists who carried out the slaughter last week or is possibly some kind of Black operation by a range of possible factions that are in a rage because the success of Russia in attacking ISIS during Sept & Oct in Syria has temporarily derailed their plan to destroy Syria using their proxies Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Daseh and other Jihadists. There are also very strong 9/11 parallels in this in the way there has been rapid announcements of huge curbs in civil liberties in a similar fashion to how the Patriot Act effectively shredded rights in the USA.
French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, declared in December 2012, during the « Friends of Syria » conference in Marrakesh, that Al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaïda, had « done a good job »
In fact it is a complete sick joke how Hollande and the rest of the power elite have used this bloodbath to greatly advance the totalitarian state in the name of security when it is key politicians, officials, elements from the intelligence services, military, military industrial complex, corporate power and the wealthy 0.1% that are up to their neck in supporting terrorism covertly and sometimes not so covertly, bombing countries, triggering civil wars and overthrowing sovereign governments. And when these are analysed in most cases it turns out to all play to the direct advantage and gain of oil and gas corporations or so-called defense industry but which are really murder industries. For example in the case of Iraq over $ 1,000,000,000,000 (trillion) was spent and in the process over a million people were killed and the country largely destroyed. Yet who got all this money? Why of course the defense industries and the nexus of security and private mercenary contractors firms. But closer to the current issue, Paris as documented in this article by Thiery Meyssan: The French Republic taken hostage, deep involvement of France along with UK, USA, Italy in the destruction of Libya, taking it from the most stable and highest standard of living in Africa and largely secular, protective of minorities to failed state overrun by murderous jihadists where even the mainstream media has given up pretending the country has somehow been liberated into democratic bliss. Then later France partnered up with Prime Minister Endrdogan of Turkey who he, his family and government are directly and openly involved in supporting ISIS and their associates, greatly aiding in the finance of ISIS by facilitating the transport and sale of oil and profiting from it themselves. Turkey has also cooperated very closely with ISIS militarily, provided medical support and worst of all provided training camps and injected them into Syria. All this time though, France was working with the Turks forming an new alliance ratified by the French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, in February 2013 and as documented in Oct 2014 article: For Ankara, is massacre a policy option?
Thus, Francois Hollande and Laurent Fabius, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Ahmet Davutoglu sponsored a joint operation to assassinate President Bashar al-Assad and his foreign minister Walid al-Moallem by cleaning staff of the presidential palace, but the operation failed.
The same article further elaborates:
The corruption of French leaders by Turkey
And read that last sentence again ... has become an active accomplice of its massacres.. That was written in Oct 2014 and it now should read: has become an active accomplice of the Paris massacres and the tens of thousands of Syrians killed in the last 3 years by the "opposition". ...
Instead what should happen is that people in France and elsewhere should gather in their thousands, tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands to demand the impeachment of Hollande, his Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius and key officials downwards for hijacking the apparatus of the state to serve their and corporate power and neo-colonial interests and be held responsible for the mayhem of murder and death in Syria and its eruption within France itself. It is only through direct pressure from thousands to millions of people that this stranglehold can be stopped. Nothing else will stop it.
The system is not going to investigate and reform itself because the tentacles of corruption and the influence of so many utterly undemocratic forces is too strong. However the mainstream media not just in France but really everywhere is completely dominated and owned by even bigger corporate conglomerates with interests in the defence (attack?) sector. For example, just 6 corporations in the USA control 90% of the media there. People think they get diverse and independent opinion but what they get is uniform and ultimately always serves the 0.1% and their objectives. To save themselves people need to make the effort and put their brains in gear and actually make an effort to learn what is going on, put things in context and most of all question the narrative and spot the self serving corporate and neo-liberal colonial like agendas. The alternative which is happening before our eyes is more of the same, fear and more fear, lock down, ever more surveillance, complete and utter erosion of every single right gained by labour movements and struggles over the last century or so and general impoverishment. What the corporate terrorists want is that we are all in perpetual fear, isolated and craven for the shackles of their security which is of course no security as they select us at random for mindless violence perpetuated by the lunatics trained in their extremist doctrines intentionally allowed to be financed and spread so as to spread chaos and use it rather than promote sanity.
In the meantime in the last week alone France has
Getting back to the events of the past week up to the present and the lock-down of Brussels the whole thing is errily similar to 9/11 when immediately within days of the attacks, our attention was quickly diverted to the Anthrax letters where several people died and a letter was even sent to Senator Leahy who just happened to be one of the people who questioned the Patriot Act at the time and threatened to not vote for it. He soon got the message and did. But during that phase many other countries claimed to receive them and enabled mass hysteria to be whipped up. The Anthrax 'attacks' naturally were blamed on Saddam Hussein of Iraq in a clumsy effort to tie him into the 9/11 narrative. However the American public proved to be so thoroughly gullible and propagandized that they didnt need that but merely the suggestion he was allied with Al Qaeda for people to believe it and to essentially give the nod for the subsequent destruction of the entire country of Iraq. Of course he had nothing at all to do with them and it very quickly was proved the Anthrax came from bio-weapons labs within the US itself. But that is all to digress because the main point is how the public went kept on the hop mentally. This week of course we had a similar sequence of events where each day there was shootouts, or 'credible' terrorists alerts, cancellation of matches, lock-downs and even the sieze of over 100 Westerns in Mali -a former colony of France and where France armed the Al Qeada lunatics with weapons taken after Libya fell from Gadaffi weapons caches.
The attack last week in isolation looked like blowback because it appears the French managed to double cross their proxy jihadists used for their tool in launching a modern form of neo colonialism, but when you add up all the other events, the political responses and self serving nature of them and then the wider picture of how the massive wave of refugees unleashed by Turkey and largely headed for Germany, it is then not hard to come to the conclusion that it very much looks like Germany is being destablized and France is possibly been setup to provoke right wing extremism and possibly even provoke some kind of low level conflict that would be extremely damaging to that nation.

Today NATO member Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 plane that was flying over Syria about 4 km from the border. One of the pilots was killed.
Even though one would expect that NATO should be fighting ISIS, it is an open secret that ISIS has been supporting ISIS, with training, supplies, injecting fighters over the 70km of porous border between northern Syria and Turkey.
Turkey has also been instrumental in helping ISIS with finance by facilitating the sale of oil from oil fields they captured although the Turks are undoubtly getting their own cut and making millions in the lucrative trade.
But just last week after it was confirmed that it was a bomb that brought down the Russian airliner over the Sinai killing all 224 people and for which ISIS claimed responsibility, Russian then bombed up to 500 tanker trucks used by ISIS to transport the petrol overland to Turkey where it was sold onward. The reason Turkey was mad at this is because not only is it really hitting ISIS where it hurts -finance, but according to the spokesman for the CHP (Socialist party in Turkey), Gürsel Tekin, the crude oil stolen by Daesh is now being exported by BMZ Ltd, the maritime company of Bilal Erdoğan, the son of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
Later in the day a Russian helicopter was shot down by an American made TOW anti-tank missile in Western Turkey near the Latakia airbase
And here is what Putin had to say about it:
But to put a bit more context on things and relate it back to the Paris attacks, what has happened is that Russia has been too successful at hitting ISIS in the last 2 months and the regime in France who run the foreign policy for their own interests have had their neo-colonial plans for the carve up of Syria disturbed, likewise with Turkey. In the case of the USA, Russia's success and influence is seen as a direct challenge to the Empire (i.e. -the US) and its plans and status. It's overall goal was and still is to use the chaos of ISIS and other terrorists groups to destroy Syria, thereby paving the way for rolling this into Iran and taking it on and spreading the Jihadists into Ukraine and all along the Southern Caucus region of Russia to destablize it and ultimately bring regime change there. This is why Russia has repeatedly said they are in Syria for their own national interests which is to wipe out the terrorists threat.
In the wake of the Paris attacks some people in the mainstream media voiced the obvious idea that NATO would join forces with Russia to take on ISIS and if you only read the mainstream media and believe its propaganda then that would make sense. A careful listening of the mainstream media in the last week or so will note that this idea has been consistently watered down and there are references to "what Russia is doing in Syria" -whatever that means -to somehow imply they are going against their interests -which they are since NATO and NATO member Turkey have been largely involved in setup, training and support of ISIS.
The end result will be that there will never been any cooperation between NATO and Russia. NATO will not have it. It should be noted the US funds at least 70+ % of the NATO budget and so call the shots.
Given all that then this next headline does not come as a surprise.
NATO: We Fully Support Turkey's Decision to Shoot Down Russian Jet
After “extraordinary meeting,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg declares that “we stand in solidarity with Turkey and support the territorial integrity of our NATO Ally, Turkey”

US Complains As Russia Bombs its Terrorists
I would be willing to speculate that the shooting down of the Russian plane was a deliberate attempt by NATO to intentionally provoke Russian and to portray them as the bad guy.
This opinion article in today's Independent from London argues that Turkey has been aiding Islamists in Syria for several years. The writer asserts that the newly elected Turkish government has no interest in seeing a settlement of the civil war (?) being hoped for by the 'world powers' which are involved in the conflict.
The turkish government (and by association, their puppeteers in the US) are caught red handed supporting ISIS and respond by
accusing the journalists who caught them of espionage and jailing them. Time is running out for Erdogan i think!
Turkish Journalists arrested for unmasking the government's smuggling of arms to Syria under the guise of medical supplies:
More weapons coming from Turkey have been intercepted. This time their destination was Belgium.
Remember that Belgium has lately become a hotbed for jihadists in Europe, and was the origin of Paris terrorists.
On 4th Dec, Sahra Wagenknecht of the German political party Die Linke gave a speech in the German Bundestag about the Paris attacks which has since been translated. In it she squarely punches holes in the decision to bomb Syria and the real causes of the terror. Here's some extracts from that speech
In general members of Die Linke (The Left) applauded her because what she said was so true, while those on the centre and Right -i.e part of the status quo (e.g. CDU / CSU and SPD) tended to heckle her.
