U.S. Propaganda for Endless War!

Russia! Russia! Russia!

     In George Orwell’s famous book —1984, the purpose of the Ministry of Truth is to wage Propaganda; The Ministry of Peace wages War; The Ministry of Love Tortures Political Prisoners; and the Ministry of Plenty Rations Food, Health care, etc. and gets people on the bottom fighting against each other while ignoring the increasing concentration of wealth at the top. Each ministry does the opposite of what it says.

     Beware of a “False Flag” event designed to trigger a major escalation in war fighting against Syria, Iran, and/or Russia. Don’t buy into it.

     A “false flag” describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in such a way that activities appear as though they are being carried out by entities, groups, or nations other than those who actually planned and executed them. Past examples include: the false claim of a North Vietnam attack on a U.S. warship in Tonkin Gulf to trigger U.S. bombing; Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) that didn’t exist to trigger U.S. bombing; the false accusation that the Syrian Government used Sarin nerve gas to trigger U.S. bombing.

Below is a military release  to invited guests.  We, of course, are NOT on the list.  Someone sent this to me to let me know what’s happening.
Jim

On behalf of Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Marquez, Commander USAG-Pohakuloa, you’re cordially invited to Pohakuloa Training Area Installation Improvement Ground Breaking:

Date: 28 June 2017, Wednesday

Time: 10:00 a.m.

Location: Pohakuloa Training Area on the island of Hawaii

Narrative along with historic pictures:

Pohakuloa Training Area is under-going a series of phased construction projects to modernize ranges and improve Cantonment infrastructure.  Characterized as an austere training environment for military personnel, and a remote duty station for civilian staff, Pohakuloa Training Area represents the largest single live-fire range facility in the Pacific region.  Originally constructed with the intent that facilities were temporary, Pohakuloa has remained an important training asset for all DoD services for the past 70 years.  Temporary facilities have out-lasted their cost-effective life-spans for maintenance and upkeep.  Today, out-dated and worn systems cannot fully support the requirements of military leaders to ensure combat readiness, nor provide adequate facilities for civilian support personnel.  The Pohakuloa “Facilities Improvement Plan” focuses first on Cantonment basic services of water, power, wastewater, and communications.  As utility systems are upgraded, new structures will replace antiquated Quonset huts, including barracks, dining facilities, laundries, and professional office space for civilian staff.  Down-range initiatives will proceed in parallel with Cantonment upgrades.  The recently completed Infantry Platoon Battle Course is the first of several modern range initiatives that will maximize training effectiveness within the existing boundaries of Pohakuloa.  With a civilian workforce of ~200, and military throughput of ~12,000 annually, the “Facilities Improvement Plan” is necessary to enhance Pohakuloa operational capabilities and administrative services, to maintain the readiness of United States armed forces.

Prevent Nuclear War!

Dangerous War Escalation in Syria

Inching Closer & Closer to Major War, Including Nuclear War 

                                                                       

What is the U.S. Doing?

      This week a U.S. F-18 fighter jet shot down a Syrian government warplane in Syria, in a blatant violation of Syrian sovereignty, and international law. Only the U.S. can destroy another State’s plane in THEIR own country and call it “Self-defense” See more at:

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47280.htm#sthash.0P7RiOWb.dpuf

      Under the U.S. guise of ‘fighting terrorism” the U.S. is backing terrorists in an attempt to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Today the entire region is in chaos. Just look at countries where the U.S. has intervened: Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc. But things could get much worse and fast. This most recent act of U.S. military aggression in Syria is bound to escalate tensions in an already dangerous international situation with Syria, Russia, and Iran. U.S. signals intent to occupy and divide Syria http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47276.htm U.S. Sec. Of State Rex Tillerson admits that the U.S. is working on regime change in Iran. https://popularresistance.org/rex-tillerson-admits-us-working-towards-regime-change-in-iran/

      According to the Associated Press, “Russia says it will treat US-led coalition planes in Syria, west of the Euphrates, as targets after US downed Syrian jet.”

      Given the unstable nature of U.S. President, Donald Trump, there is growing concern that he could escalate matters further to divert attention from the widening investigations against him at home. Either by accident, miscalculation, or design, the situation could quickly escalate to a widening war involving countries with nuclear weapons.

Write a letter to the Editor on DU at Pohakuloa

Here are email addresses for letters to the editor  I just sent the letter below.  Both the Hawaii Tribune Herald and West Hawaii Today carried an article 6/16/17 about the NRC denying our petition for a hearing, but didn’t say anything about the danger of inhaling DU oxide dust particles.  I don’t know about the Honolulu Star-Advertiser if it covered the NRC ruling.

Letter to the editor

License to Poison

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) actions of June 13, 2017 denied Big Island residents a hearing about the dangers of inhaling Depleted Uranium (DU) oxide dust particles from military radiation at the 133,000-acre Pohakuloa Training Area.  These particles can be dispersed and carried long distance from PTA by the wind, military high explosives and other activity at PTA that creates dust.  Neither the military, nor the NRC, want to deal with this main hazard of inhalation of DU oxide dust particles.  They only talk about there being no external radiation hazard  which is not really an issue with DU. The NRC and military actions fail to protect troops, residents, and visitors health and safety.  In short, the NRC has issued the military a license to poison us.  The military “mission” and efforts to avoid liability trumps all.  Troops, residents, and visitors are being treated as lab rats for military experiments.  Whatever happened to informed consent.   I encourage everyone to view the short video by Hawaii Doctor Lorrin Pang, MD explaining the health dangers of inhaling DU oxide dust particles and judge for yourself if there are health dangers.  See the video here
