Cold War 2.0: New evidence that the US are trying to surround China

Japan to ease military restrictions since World War II
The Japanese government says it will push ahead with plans to ease restrictions on its military, which have kept it from fighting abroad since World War II.”
Under the constitution’s Article 9, Japan’s military is banned from taking any military action except when the country is under attack. But the new plan will increase the country’s military options and allow its armed forces to fight on behalf of Tokyo’s allies.”
The move, however, was not welcomed in the country, with a recent poll showing that 58 percent of respondents are against a more aggressive military stance.

The start of the police privatization?

Coming soon: Private NSAs not obliged to give information about their activities even when they kill
As part of the American Civil Liberties Union’s recent report on police militarization, the Massachusetts chapter of the organization sent open records requests to SWAT teams across that state. It received an interesting response.”
As it turns out, a number of SWAT teams in the Bay State are operated by what are called law enforcement councils, or LECs. [...] Some of these LECs have also apparently incorporated as 501(c)(3) organizations. [...] According to the ACLU, the LECs are claiming that the 501(c)(3) status means that they’re private corporations, not government agencies. And therefore, they say they’re immune from open records requests.
These agencies oversee police activities. They employ cops who carry guns, wear badges, collect paychecks provided by taxpayers and have the power to detain, arrest, injure and kill. They operate SWAT teams, which conduct raids on private re…

Prisons of “type C”: A new test field in the Greek experiment

The neoliberal government attempts to steal the "glory" of the US police state through unprecedented measures in the next bill
After dissolving labor rights and a first attempt to criminalize protests, the Greek government is preparing new, unprecedented measures to strengthen the police state, through the so-called prisons of "type C".
Speaking on the radio station "In Red," Ioanna Drosou, member of the "Initiative for Prisoners' Rights", revealed the main points of the bill concerning the prisons of "type C".
The first thing someone should notice, is that no change is predicted on the buildings of the new prisons. One would expect that new prisons of "special type", should satisfy special standards. However, the only thing that will change in existing prisons, or in sectors of existing prisons, is their name as prisons of "type C".
Inmates planned to be jailed in those prisons, will be divided into two categories.…

Hillary for president in the middle of Cold War 2.0

A nightmare scenario
The former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State no doubt concurs with the nineteenth century French politician who said (more or less): 'If a person is not a socialist at 20, he has no heart. If he is still a socialist at 50 he has no head.' Of course, idealism is impractical, an unaffordable luxury for career politicians, who must learn to play ball with the powers that be if they wish to survive in public life.”
Marrying Bill Clinton and moving to Arkansas, Hillary Rodham learned the art of compromise, beginning her own metamorphosis into the corporate entity, HRC. When Clinton ran for president in 1992, kicking off a long national soap opera, HRC learned to lie in public on venues like Sixty Minutes.”
During her first term in office [Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC)] voted for every bellicose bit of war legislation the Bush administration saw fit to ram down the throats of the American people in the wake of 9/11: military action against Afghanista…

Φυλακές “τύπου Γ”: Ένα νέο πεδίο δοκιμών στο Ελληνικό πείραμα

Η νεοφιλελεύθερη κυβέρνηση συναγωνίζεται το Αμερικανικό αστυνομικό κράτος με πρωτοφανή μέτρα στο προσεχές νομοσχέδιο
Μετά την διάλυση των εργασιακών δικαιωμάτων στην Ελλάδα και τις πρώτες απόπειρες ποινικοποίησης των διαδηλώσεων, η κυβέρνηση ετοιμάζει νέα, πρωτοφανή μέτρα ενίσχυσης του αστυνομικού κράτους, με τις αποκαλούμενες φυλακές “τύπου Γ”.
Μιλώντας στον ραδιοφωνικό σταθμό “Στο κόκκινο”, η Ιωάννα Δρόσου, μέλος της Πρωτοβουλίας για τα Δικαιώματα των Κρατουμένων, αποκάλυψε τα βασικότερα σημεία του υπό ψήφιση νομοσχεδίου για τις φυλακές “τύπου Γ”.
Το πρώτο πράγμα που κάνει εντύπωση είναι ότι δεν προβλέπεται καμία κτιριακή αλλαγή για τις νέες φυλακές. Θα περίμενε κανείς ότι οι νέες φυλακές "ειδικού τύπου", θα έπρεπε να έχουν και τις ανάλογες προδιαγραφές. Παρόλα αυτά, το μόνο πράγμα που θα αλλάξει στις ήδη υφιστάμενες φυλακές, ή, σε τμήματα υφιστάμενων φυλακών, θα είναι η ονομασία τους ως φυλακές "τύπου Γ".
Οι κρατούμενοι που προορίζονται γι'αυτές τις φυλακές, θα …

Το Αμερικανικό βαθύ κράτος κόβει τους τελευταίους δεσμούς με τη Ρωσία

του system failure
Πριν από μόλις δύο μέρες, κάποιος (πιθανόν από την Αμερική), που διάβασε την Αγγλική έκδοση του άρθρου "Ψυχρός πόλεμος 2.0: Επικίνδυνα παιχνίδια από τα 'γεράκια' της Ουάσιγκτον", το οποίο περιγράφει την παράνοια των "γερακιών" της Ουάσιγκτον και του κορπορατικού-τραπεζικού Αμερικανικού κατεστημένου, που πιθανόν να πιστεύουν ότι μπορούν να επιχειρήσουν ένα πυρηνικό χτύπημα κατά της Ρωσίας και να νικήσουν αποκρούοντας τα Ρωσικά αντίποινα, αντιπαρέβαλε το επιχείρημα ότι "Μια χώρα που στηρίζεται ακόμα στους Ρωσικούς κινητήρες για να θέσει σε τροχιά επικοινωνιακούς δορυφόρους, ξέρει καλά με ποιον έχει να κάνει", εννοώντας προφανώς ότι οι Αμερικανοί δεν θα τολμούσαν κάτι τέτοιο.
Δεν πέρασαν λίγα 24ωρα και το δίκτυο PressTV, δημοσίευσε άρθρο στην ιστοσελίδα του με τίτλο “US House approves funding to replace Russian rocket engines”, ή, "Η Αμερικανική βουλή εγκρίνει χρηματοδότηση για την αντικατάσταση των Ρωσικών πυραυλικών κινητήρων

US deep state tries to cut its few ties with Russia

The Russians responded fast
Just yesterday, a friend who read the article "Cold War 2.0: Dangerous games from Washington's 'hawks'" pointed that "Country that still rely on Russian engines to deliver communication satellites into orbit know pretty well whom they are dealing with."
Unfortunately, Washington's "hawks" proceed in fast moves that show a willing to take the risk of the unthinkable:
US lawmakers in the House of Representatives have approved $220 million in funding to help the Pentagon replace the Russian rocket engines used in its satellite launches.
The measure, which faces opposition from the Obama administration, calls on the US military to use an American-built engine for launching military satellites into orbit. The US relies on Russian-made RD-180 and NK-33 engines to launch military and civilian satellites into space.”
SpaceX argued that ULA [a joint-venture between US aerospace giants Lockheed Martin and Boeing] has be…

Drones: Advanced "big brother" arrives in Greece

The plan of the Greek police to buy UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles), known as Drones, is in its final stage
According to some information, the Greek Ministry of Public Order and Citizen Protection is already negotiating with Israeli companies that specialize in the construction of unmanned aircrafts. The Drones are able to fly without noise, transferring sound, images and other data to the operations center. Due to their abilities, they cannot be detected either in operations close to the borders, or, in the center of Athens.
It is characteristic, that the idea for using Drones came when thousands of the "indignants" movement were protesting at Syntagma square, Athens. During that period, Autumn of 2011, some Greek officers met with executives of an Israeli company to discuss purchasing the unmanned aircraft. This is a good indication of how the police is planning to use them.
On June 27th, 2013, an unmanned military aircraft, which participated in the investigations for the de…

Cold War 2.0: Dangerous games from Washington's "hawks"

by system failure
Latest numerous indications show that the US surround Russia, attempting to isolate the country militarily, politically and economically. The support of neo-nazis in Ukraine was aiming to drag Russia into an attrition war in East Ukraine, for a start. Some analysts claim that Washington's "hawks" prepare a nuclear "preventive" strike against Russia because they believe that they can obviate Russian or Chinese retaliation, using the anti-missile shield in East Europe.
Unfortunatelly, there are indications that this may be possible. According to latest information, Washington proceeds in actions to surround China as well. It is not accidental that these revelations come after the recent big agreement between Russia and China on the energy sector. According to some analysts, the US transfer 60% of their naval forces to the Asian Pasific, while they plan to build a similar "anti-missile" system in the region. http://adiritos.blogspot.gr/201…

Ψυχρός πόλεμος 2.0: Επικίνδυνα παιχνίδια από τα “γεράκια” της Ουάσιγκτον

Πληθαίνουν οι ενδείξεις ότι οι ΗΠΑ σφίγγουν τον κλοιό γύρω από τη Ρωσία, επιχειρώντας να την απομονώσουν στρατιωτικά, πολιτικά και οικονομικά. Η υποστήριξη των νεο-ναζί στην Ουκρανία, είχε σαν στόχο να σύρουν καταρχήν τη Ρωσία σε έναν πόλεμο φθοράς στην Αν. Ουκρανία. Ορισμένοι αναλυτές υποστηρίζουν ότι τα "γεράκια" της Ουάσιγκτον ετοιμάζονται για ένα πυρηνικό "προληπτικό" χτύπημα κατά της Ρωσίας πιστεύοντας ότι μπορούν να προλάβουν τα Ρωσικά ή και τα Κινεζικά αντίποινα, χρησιμοποιώντας την αντιπυραυλική ασπίδα που έχουν εγκαταστήσει στις χώρες της Αν.

Δυστυχώς, υπάρχουν ενδείξεις ότι κάτι τέτοιο είναι πολύ πιθανό. Η Ουάσιγκτον, σύμφωνα με τελευταίες πληροφορίες, σφίγγει τον κλοιό γύρω και από την Κίνα.

Neo-nazis' plans for Greece

Former election candidate with Golden Dawn neo-nazi party reveals ultimate goal
Golden Dawn’s ultimate aim is to create a one-party state and its attacks on migrants are viewed internally as “badges of honour”, a former high-ranking party member has told magistrates investigating the neonazi party as a criminal organisation.”
The individual, whose name has not been released to the public, unsuccessfully ran for the party in the 2012 elections and subsequently worked as a parliamentary researcher for the neonazi party before abandoning it in 2013. His testimony, which he presented voluntarily, has been described as “significant” by the investigating magistrates.”
The witness said that 'the ultimate goal of Golden Dawn is to establish a one-party regime, in which the state and the party will be identical and the former will operate under orders from the latter'. He added that the regime would maintain power by spreading its beliefs throughout society and – to the greatest ext…

Systemic neoliberal “rationalism” recruited to prepare us for nuclear war?

Get used to it!
by system failure
Some thoughts on an article of NY Times under the title “The Lack of Major Wars May Be Hurting Economic Growth”:
The world just hasn’t had that much warfare lately, at least not by historical standards. Some of the recent headlines about Iraq or South Sudan make our world sound like a very bloody place, but today’s casualties pale in light of the tens of millions of people killed in the two world wars in the first half of the 20th century. Even the Vietnam War had many more deaths than any recent war involving an affluent country.” [!!!]
Which means that we must go backwards instead of evolving as humanity, creating mass bloodbaths for the benefit of the few?
This view does not claim that fighting wars improves economies, as of course the actual conflict brings death and destruction. The claim is also distinct from the Keynesian argument that preparing for war lifts government spending and puts people to work. Rather, the very possibility of war focuse…

20 Ιουνίου: Παγκόσμια Ημέρα Προσφύγων

Ο αναγκαστικός εκτοπισμός φτάνει στα υψηλότερα επίπεδα μετά τον Δεύτερο Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο
Η Υπάτη Αρμοστεία του ΟΗΕ για τους Πρόσφυγες (Υ.Α.) δημοσίευσε σήμερα έκθεση για τον αριθμό των προσφύγων, των αιτούντων άσυλο και των εσωτερικά εκτοπισμένων σε όλο τον κόσμο, αριθμός ο οποίος ξεπέρασε τα 50 εκατομμύρια, για πρώτη φορά μετά τον Δεύτερο Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο.
Η ετήσια έκθεση της Υ.Α. με τίτλο «Παγκόσμιες Τάσεις» (Global Trends), η οποία βασίζεται σε στοιχεία που συγκεντρώθηκαν από κυβερνήσεις, συνεργαζόμενες ΜΚΟ και την ίδια την Ύπατη Αρμοστεία, δείχνει ότι, μέχρι το τέλος του 2013, 51,2 εκατομμύρια άνθρωποι είχαν αναγκαστεί να εκτοπιστούν, δηλαδή 6 εκατομμύρια περισσότεροι από τα 45,2 που είχαν καταγραφεί το 2012.
Η τεράστια αυτή αύξηση οφείλεται κυρίως στον πόλεμο της Συρίας, ο οποίος μέχρι τα τέλη του προηγούμενου έτους είχε εξαναγκάσει 2,5 εκατομμύρια ανθρώπους να γίνουν πρόσφυγες και 6,5 εκατομμύρια να εκτοπιστούν στο εσωτερικό της χώρας. Σημαντικοί νέοι εκτοπισμοί σημειώθηκαν…

June 20: World Refugee Day

Updated report by UNHCR fot the World Refugee Day, 20 June 2014:
By end-2013, 51.2 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, generalized violence, or human rights violations. Some 16.7 million persons were refugees: 11.7 million under UNHCR’s mandate and 5.0 million Palestinian refugees registered by UNRWA. The global figure included 33.3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) and close to 1.2 million asylum-seekers. If these 51.2 million persons were a nation, they would make up the 26th largest in the world.”
An estimated 10.7 million individuals were newly displaced due to conflict or persecution in 2013. This includes 8.2 million persons newly displaced within the borders of their own country, the highest figure on record. The other 2.5 million individuals were new refugees – the highest number of new arrivals since 1994.”
During 2013, conflict and persecution forced an average of 32,200 individuals per day to leave their home…

June 20: World Refugee Day

By the end of 2011: An estimated 43.3 million people worldwide were forcibly displaced due to conflict and persecution.  Among refugees and people in refugee-like situations, children constituted 46 per cent of the population.
876,100 individual applications for asylum or refugee status were submitted in 171 countries or territories.
The number of internally displaced persons, benefitting from UNHCR’s protection and assistance activities, was 15.5 million.
UNHCR identified some 3.5 million stateless people in 64 countries. However, the actual number of stateless persons worldwide was estimated at up to 12 million.

The number of forcibly displaced people in the world continues to rise. There are now more than 45 million refugees and internally displaced people – the highest level in nearly 20 years. Last year alone, someone was forced to abandon their home every four seconds.
War remains the dominant cause, with the crisis in Syria a leading …

Τα τύμπανα του πολέμου ηχούν από την Ουάσιγκτον

του Paul Craig Roberts
Το άρθρο του Eric Zuesse που δημοσιεύτηκε στην ιστοσελίδα Op-Ed News επιβεβαιώνει τις αναφορές μου ότι υπάρχουν ενδείξεις ότι η Ουάσιγκτον ετοιμάζεται για ένα πρώτο πυρηνικό χτύπημα κατά της Ρωσίας. http://www.opednews.com/populum/printer_friendly.php?content=a&id=180039
Το πολεμικό δόγμα των ΗΠΑ έχει αλλάξει. Τα Αμερικανικά πυρηνικά όπλα δεν περιορίζονται πλέον σε μια δύναμη αντιποίνων, αλλά ο ρόλος τους έχει αναβαθμιστεί σε μια δύναμη "προληπτικής" πυρηνικής επίθεσης. Η Ουάσιγκτον έχει αποσυρθεί από την Αντιβαλλιστική Πυραυλική Συνθήκη με την Ρωσία και αναπτύσσει μια αντιβαλλιστική ασπίδα (ABM). Η Ουάσιγκτον δαιμονοποιεί την Ρωσία και τον Ρώσο πρόεδρο με απαράδεκτα ψέματα και προπαγάνδα, προετοιμάζοντας τους λαούς για πόλεμο κατά της Ρωσίας από τις ΗΠΑ και τα προσκείμενα σε αυτές κράτη.
Η Ουάσιγκτον έχει πεισθεί από τους νεο-συντηρητικούς ότι τα Ρωσικά στρατηγικά πυρηνικά όπλα είναι ανέτοιμα και σε κακή κατάσταση. Αυτή η λανθασμένη αντίληψη οφείλετα…
