Israel says it has intercepted a ship carrying dozens of advanced Iranian-supplied rockets intended for guerrillas in the Gaza Strip.

When reading stories like this, it is worth keeping in mind Mossad's motto - "By way of deception thou shall do war".

New Website on Real History

It’s been a long time since I was on this blog and I’ve spent at least part of that time working on a new website. I’d become increasingly aware that everything we are taught as history is propaganda. I started researching various subjects.

I was also lucky enough to get books and documents sent to me from interested parties.

If Hitler Didn't Exist the Pentagon Would Have to Invent Him

For 68 years, wars on poor countries have been justified by the pretended discovery of Hitler's reincarnation. Each time it has turned out to be a false alarm. Every post-WWII war looks disastrous or at least dubious in retrospect to most people. And yet, the justification of the next war is always ready to hand, because the real, original Hitler remains alive in our memories, and he just might come back -- who's to say?

The shocking case for striking Syria: Horrific videos of gas attacks that White House is using to persuade US politicians to act

More war-mongering propaganda from the Daily Mail's bovine excrement department, replete with adjectives such as "heartbreaking","shocking", "horrific" and "gruesome" but (as usual) short on hard evidence that the attacks were carried out by Assad, or even any rationale as to why Assad would carry out such an attack on the very day the UN inspectors were in his country.
