War on Multiple Fronts

Every instance of US meddling has made matters worse. Tens of thousands of innocent civilians are dead and the economy of Iraq is destroyed.

Our policy is no so tangled we are bombing our friends and protecting those we seek to depose. 

Can it get still more convoluted? Of course it can. Just add Israel, Pakistan, or Russia to the mix.

Perpetual war on multiple fronts simultaneously is the warmonger's ultimate wet dream. "Success" is nearly at hand.

( The Afghanistan political crisis has only completed Act 1 ... ) 



As president-elect Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai prepares for Monday's inauguration, many still criticize the 2014 presidential election process that faced "industrial-scale" fraud bringing into question the works of the election commissions.
On Saturday, former Independent Election Commission (IEC) Chairman Fazl Ahmad Manawi asserted that "if the IEC intentionally brought the election process to a crisis, it is equal to national treason." He stressed that investigations must be implemented to decipher the faces behind the crisis, claiming that a number of election commission personnel were involved, in what he calls, the "presidential election disaster."
"This issue must be clarified through a comprehensive investigation," he asserted. "Was the political disaster in the hands of the IEC chairman and members or the executive committee? I believe that specific key figures in the commission directed the election in the course they wanted it to head. If the IEC did this intentionally, then this is, in fact, a national treason."
Chairman of the Fair and Free Election Foundation of Afghanistan (FEFA), Nadir Naderi, said that if this issue is not solved the people will lose what little faith they have left in the election organizations.
"If these questions are not answered and the picture is not clear, the people will no longer trust the election organizations," Naderi stressed. "Those who were behind the cause of the crisis need to be held accountable."
The electoral tensions led the nation to seek foreign assistance in acquiring a solution to what was a prolonged presidential election threatening the country's economy and security.
The nation now waits for the new administration—the national unity government—to officially kick into gear on Monday.

( Naturally BSA is first order of business.... ) 



President Hamid Karzai's National Security Advisor, Dr. Rangin Dadfar Spanta, announced on Saturday that the new government will sign the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) on Tuesday.
Speaking at the International Conference of Security Talks in western Herat, Dr. Spanta said that after Monday's inauguration of president-elect Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, the new government is said sign the BSA the day after—Tuesday.
During his speech, Dr. Spanta raised concerns of the ongoing fight against terrorism and its rapid spread. "If we are still fighting against insurgents for the past 13 years, the fight against ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) will also be problematic," he said, referencing to the failure of putting an end to insurgency anywhere in the world.
He went on to say that the struggle against terrorism is being fought on the wrong grounds. "I know that foreign troops in Afghanistan are fighting insurgents, but they are in the incorrect combat zone. The Haqqani network, Punjabi and Pakistani Taliban and other insurgent groups are all based in Pakistan," hinting that the "root" of the problem is in neighboring Pakistan.
Toward the end of his speech, Dr. Spanta said that "instead of focusing on building military forces, it will be good to have an inclusive policy."

KABUL: Afghanistan will delay paying salaries to hundreds of thousands of civil servants next month because it does not have enough money, a finance ministry official said Saturday.
The government treasury now holds less than the 6.5 billion Afghanis ($116 million) needed to begin processing monthly salaries, said Alhaj Mohammad Aqa, director-general of treasury in the ministry.
He would not say exactly how much money the government had in its coffers, only that it was not enough to meet the payroll.









Winter coming fears cued up for Ukraine and Europe ....

Ukraine PM Cries "Russia Wants Us To Freeze" As Locals Prepare For A Long, Cold Winter



Tyler Durden's picture





We would like to be able to commiserate with Ukraine's US-muppet regime, we really would, but when Ukraine's PM Argeny Yatseniuk, or Yats as he is known to Victoria Nuland, almost cried in an interview with Reuters yesterday when he pleaded that "[Russia] wants us to freeze... This is the aim and this is another trump card in Russian hands.... So, except military offense, except military operation against Ukraine, they have another trump card, which is energy". we have just two things to say to him: i) he is absolutely correct, about Russia having the trump card that is - something obvious to everyone with half a brain from the start of the conflict, and ii) perhaps Ukraine should finally pay Gazprom not only for the gas they would like to use in the future, but also the gas they have already used and payment for which is overdue and which the IMF, i.e., the US taxpayer, gave Ukraine explicit money to pay for and instead was embezzled by the people in power.
More from Reuters on how Ukraine finally, with a year's delay, figure out just what the endgame is:
"The ultimate goal of Russia is to organize, to orchestrate another frozen conflict in Ukraine."

Russia's state-controlled energy company Gazprom cut off gas supplies to Ukraine in June because of a row over Kiev's unpaid gas bill, raising concerns that the country may not be able to cover the peak-demand winter season.

The European Commission is aiming to propose an interim solution to the gas quarrel between Russia and Ukraine at talks it is brokering in Berlin on Friday.

Yatseniuk said there were no official negotiations on it, though he said a plan to help Ukraine secure additional gas "would be helpful for us."
But while we have absolutely zero compassion for Ukraine's puppet regime, which was used and abused by their "western partners", and is suddenly left out to dry, or rather freeze, with an imploding economy and an increasingly more angry population, where the cherry on top will be hyperinflation to follow a very vold winter, we are indeed sad for Ukraine's ordinary people, who are merely the innocent victims in the ongoing political power struggle between Obama and Putin, and for whom the next few months will be a living hell.
Still, we are confident they will survive: here is how the Ukrainian locals are preparing, according to Bloomberg:
Since Kiev’s authorities started turning off communal hot water supplies last month to save natural gas, people with their own boilers have found unwashed friends on the doorstep armed with a towel and a bar of soap.

Yulia Mikulska, an accountant from the Ukrainian capital, had gone weeks without a hot shower before she visited her brother’s summer house, which is fitted with an electric water heater. “I finally got to wash myself like a human being!” the elegant 38-year-old said.

Ukrainians are resorting to “wash visits” along with school closures and DIY insulation as the nation of 45 million braces for a winter without enough gas. Authorities, already fighting an insurgency in the east, are scrambling to build stockpiles in a country where temperatures can drop to 20 below zero Celsius (negative 4 degrees Fahrenheit) after Russia, the main supplier, stopped shipments in June.
An early winter in Ukraine means the locals will literally have to warm themselves for the next two months:
Kievenergo, which provides heat for the capital, said it may delay supplying customers until the start of November, when average temperatures are near zero, and stop at the end of March. By providing heat for one month less than usual, it will save 5.5 million cubic meters of gas a day.
The Kiev power authority has a modest proposal to the locals: chill. Literally.
Homes will have to be kept cooler, with the thermostat set at 19 degrees Celsius, 5 degrees lower than usual, according to Naftogaz Chief Executive Officer Andriy Kobolyev. Authorities have also warned of power cuts.
Another side effect: students will be dumber, something the "Western alliance" will surely welcome:
In the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, schools will likely close during the coldest months because there’s not enough fuel to heat them. The city has introduced a 6-day week and canceled vacations in October and March to make up the time.

Oleksandr Poltoratskyi, director of an elementary school with 700 pupils in Kiev, decided to forgo a plan to buy laptops and spent the money on a boiler instead. “That way we’ll be sure to have hot water for the kids, even if there’s rationing,” he said.
the biggest irony is that in desperately seeking to avoid becoming part of the new USSR, the Ukraine energy company what few customers it has left to, well, revert to the practices from the old USSR:
Naftogaz’s Kobolyev advised households to revert to frugal practices from Soviet times. They should glue strips of paper to the inside of window frames to keep warm air in, he told weekly newspaper Dzerkalo Tyzhnya. Kharkiv’s city council has called on residents to volunteer to help insulate apartment buildings and pay for the repairs out of their own pockets.
Mikulska, the accountant who showered at her brother’s place, said that installing a boiler is too expensive so she’s been heating up water in an electric tea kettle to wash herself and her 9-year-old daughter. She managed to color her hair using a kettle to rinse out the dye. If there’s a power cut, she says she won’t have any heat at all.
The bottom line:
“Imagine washing your child if there’s no heating,” she said. “Now that there’s some sun we can dry things, but later, if our heaters are cold, what are we going to do?”
Well, one thing you can do is go to the parliament, and protest, demanding a change in the government - one which actually prioritizes the best interests of its own people, not those of some bureaucrats a few thousand miles away. After all isn't that what got Ukraine in this sordid situation in the first place ?


Anti War..... Cue the fear 


Taliban Seizes Key District South of Kabul, 100 Killed

Ajrestan District Includes Highway from Kabul to Kandahar

by Jason Ditz, September 26, 2014
Some 700 Taliban fighters attacked the Ajrestan District of Ghazni Province earlier this week and seem to have more or less taken it over, with provincial officials saying they have lost contact with police in the area.
Fighting is still reportedly raging into the weekend, with over 100 killed and Afghan Army forces being pushed back and giving the Taliban effective control over the extremely important district, which includes the nation’s main highway, which goes from Kabul to Kandahar.
The Taliban has made increasing gains across the south and central portions of Afghanistan in recent months, as NATO tries to stay back and let the Afghan military prove itself in direct fighting. So far, the news hasn’t been good.
Afghan officials are warning that the losses underscore the need to negotiate a settlement with the Taliban to end the fighting, saying that without NATO occupation forces they simply can’t defeat the Taliban in combat.




US and Europe Fear Retaliation After Attacking ISIS

Officials Vow to Track Movements of Syria Returnees

by Jason Ditz, September 25, 2014
The United States and its assorted allies in Europe have rejected analysts efforts to liken the new ISIS war to poking a hornets’ nest. Despite that, they’ve poked it, and it seems they are awaiting the sting.
Both the United States and EU nations involved in the war are now said to be bracing for the inevitable ISIS retaliation from their air war, with France saying they are taking “preventive” measures at public sites.
The US, by contrast, says that they focusing on trying to track the movement of people who were believed to have gone to Syria to fight and have since returned. They alsoadded new ISIS-linked factions to the terrorism watchlist.
In both Iraq and Syria, the strikes are believed to have had little to no impact on ISIS’ control of territory. Nevertheless, officials vow to continue the attacks and, by extension, continue to await the blowback from them.






Iraqi PM Invents ISIS Subway Plot

US: No Evidence of Any Such Thing

by Jason Ditz, September 25, 2014
When keeping foreign powers involved in a war on your behalf, you have to keep scaring them. Iraqi Prime Minister Hayder Abadi is trying his best, announcing an ISIS “plot” to attack an unspecified American subway, along with the one in Paris.
Abadi claimed an attack was “imminent” and that Iraqi intelligence had uncovered it and that he forwarded the intelligence to US officials. That may have been the biggest mistake in his phony narrative.
That’s because US officials say thewhole thing is news to them, and they’ve seen no evidence of any such plot in either the United States or France, and have no credible information to back up the Iraqi premier’s allegations.
Abadi’s claims hit all the right notes, large cities, civilian transit targets with large numbers of potential casualties, etc. The big problem, however, is that the whole thing seems to be hastily made up, and no one is buying it.

UPDATE: Suspect in shooting still at large, wounded officer taken to hospital




http://hotair.com/archives/2014/09/26/oklahoma-woman-beheaded-in-workplace-attack-by-man-who-had-allegedly-tried-to-convert-co-workers-to-islam/




Via Joe Scarborough, it’s interesting that the cops would mention the conversion angle so soon in the investigation. The suspect, Alton Nolen, had just been fired from the business, a classic trigger for the sort of rampage people typically think of when they hear about “workplace violence.” But the fact that this was a beheading and that it happened after weeks of U.S. intel officials warning the media that reprisals at home for bombing ISIS are likely to come from “lone wolves” is why people as prominent as Scarborough are paying attention to it.
An enraged man seeking revenge for his termination or seeking revenge for something more?
Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said Friday that 30-year-old Alton Nolen had been terminated from Vaughan Foods in Moore shortly before the incident took place on Thursday afternoon.
Colleen Hufford, 54, was beheaded and another woman, 43-year-old Traci Johnson, was stabbed. Both victims were employees of Vaughan Foods, but according to Lewis, it appeared the women were not targeted and were instead stabbed at random…
According to Lewis, statements were made to investigators that Nolen had been trying to convince employees to convert to Islam. It is unclear whether this is why Nolen had been terminated from the business.

How was Nolan stopped? Turns out the chief operating officer of Vaughn Foods is also a reserve sheriff’s deputy and had his gun with him at work. He shot Nolen, which ended the attack. (Nolen’s in the hospital but is expected to survive, so cops will soon have an idea of motive straight from the horse’s mouth.) “This was not going to stop if he didn’t stop it,” said one cop of the COO’s heroism. “It could have gotten a lot worse.”
***


Update: New details from NBC:
The circumstances of Nolen’s firing weren’t made public. Some co-workers told police that he had recently converted to Islam and had been trying to convert them. Law enforcement officials told NBC News that his conversion took place during his recent stint in prison, which ended in March 2013, records show. A search of his home and car didn’t immediately yield any connection to radical fundamentalism and there’s no indication he had been in contact with terrorists groups such as ISIS, sources said.
Local authorities are working with the FBI to do an extensive background investigation on Nolen, Lewis said. Law enforcement officials say they are looking into his online activities and whether a Facebook page that contains materials with terrorist and fundamentalist themes was maintained by Nolen under an alias. Nolen does have an extensive rap sheet, including assault and battery on a police officer and escape from detention, according to NBC affiliate KFOR.

ISIS Comes To America? Oklahoma Man Beheads Woman After Being Fired

Tyler Durden's picture





man who had been fired from a food processing plant in an Oklahoma City suburb beheaded a woman with a knife and was attacking another worker when he was shot and wounded by a company official, police said Friday. As AP reports, while questioning the suspect's co-workers, investigators learned he had recently started trying to convert several employees to Islam. As the director of news and information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City stated, "they have this ISIS thing on their minds and now this guy has brought it to America."


A man who had been fired from a food processing plant in an Oklahoma City suburb beheaded a woman with a knife and was attacking another worker when he was shot and wounded by a company official, police said Friday.

The 30-year-old man, who has not been charged, stabbed Colleen Hufford, 54, severing her head in Thursday's attack at Vaughan Foods, Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said.

"Yes, she was beheaded," Lewis told The Associated Press before a Friday news conference.

Lewis said the man then stabbed Traci Johnson, 43, a number of times before being shot by Mark Vaughan, a reserve sheriff's deputy and the company's chief operating officer.

While questioning the suspect's co-workers, investigators learned he had recently started trying to convert several employees to Islam, Lewis said. Moore police have asked the FBI to aid in the investigation and look into the man's background because of the nature of the attack, Lewis said.

Johnson and the suspect were hospitalized and in stable condition Friday, Lewis said.

Lewis said he does not yet know what charges will be filed, adding that police are waiting until the man is conscious to arrest him.

Oklahoma Department of Corrections records show the suspect, whom The Associated Press is not naming because he has not been charged, has multiple religious tattoos, including one in Arabic that means "peace be with you."

Lewis said the suspect had been fired in a building that houses the company's human resources office, then immediately drove to the entrance of the business. Lewis said he didn't know why the man was fired.

"This was not going to stop if he didn't stop it. It could have gotten a lot worse," Lewis said.

A Vaughan spokeswoman said the company was "shocked and deeply saddened" by the attack.
*  *  *
The alleged suspect, Alton Nolen, 30, was recently fired from Vaughan Foods in Moore prior to Thursday’s attack.
*  *  *
Whether this is related to ISIS remains a matter of speculation.
Saad Mohammad, director of news and information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, said leaders of the society’s mosque in northwest Oklahoma City are on alert and taking security precautions to protect the Muslims who gather there from any violence that someone might try to attempt in retaliation for the Moore incident. He said the anti-Muslim sentiments people may have could be heightened due to the beheadings and violence being perpetrated by the Islamic extremist group ISIS overseas.
“They have this ISIS thing on their minds and now this guy has brought it to America,” Mohammad said.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/white-house-intruder-was-tackled-by-off-duty-secret-service-agent/2014/09/30/052fb86c-48b4-11e4-b72e-d60a9229cc10_story.html


The man who jumped over the White House fence and sprinted through the main floor of the mansion could have gotten even farther had it not been for an off-duty Secret Service agent who was coincidentally in the house and leaving for the night.
The agent who finally tackled Omar Gonzalez had been serving on the security detail for President Obama’s daughters and had just seen the family depart via helicopter minutes earlier. He happened to be walking through the house when chaos broke out and the intruder dashed through the main foyer, according to two people familiar with the incident.
Gonzalez, 42, was the first person in modern memory to jump over the White House fence and get into the mansion, largely the result of a failure of numerous layers of Secret Service security on the northern fence line.
Though the Secret Service initially said that Gonzalez was quickly detained inside the front door, The Washington Post reported Monday that the man actually made it well into the house before he was tackled on the far southern side of the 80-foot-long East Room. Once he burst inside the unlocked front door, Gonzalez, an Army veteran, overpowered one Secret Service officer and, on his journey, sprinted past a stairway that leads up half a flight to the first family’s living quarters.
****

In the breach this past month, Gonzalez, who was carrying a knife, reached the doorway to the Green Room, a parlor overlooking the South Lawn with artwork and antique furniture, according to three people familiar with the incident.
Pierson confirmed in the hearing Thursday that, despite the Secret Service’s earlier assertion that Gonzalez was arrested inside the front door, Gonzalez was able to get far deeper into the White House and was eventually tackled outside the Green Room.
Lawmakers from both parties criticized Pierson and her agency for giving misleading and partial accounts of the security breach. The new information about the key role of an agent who happened to be in the building but was not part of the security team may raise further questions.
Pierson did not reveal during her testimony that the agent who tackled him was not actually assigned to the post where he confronted Gonzalez.

REPORT: It Took The Secret Service 5 Days To Realize A Gunman Had Shot At The White House

Secret Service fence jumperAPThe Secret Service is coming under renewed scrutiny after a man scaled the White House fence and made it all the way through the front door before he was apprehended.
An in-depth report from The Washington Post details how the Secret Service reportedly failed to identify and respond to a 2011 shooting attack on the White House.
The elite law enforcement agency tasked with protecting the president didn't realize that bullets had hit the White House until five days after a gunman shot at the upstairs residence that houses the first family, according to the Post.
It wasn't until a housekeeper noticed broken glass and a chunk of cement on the floor that the Secret Service realized what had happened. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama were out of town the night of the attack, but their youngest daughter Sasha was home.
At least seven bullets hit the White House that night.
From the Post:
Secret Service officers initially rushed to respond. One, stationed directly under the second-floor terrace where the bullets struck, drew her .357 handgun and prepared to crack open an emergency rifle box. Snipers on the roof, standing just 20 feet from where one bullet struck, scanned the South Lawn through their rifle scopes for signs of an attack. With little camera surveillance on the White House perimeter, it was up to the Secret Service officers on duty to figure out what was going on.
Then came an order that surprised some of the officers. “No shots have been fired. . . . Stand down,” a supervisor called over his radio. He said the noise was the backfire from a nearby construction vehicle.
