"The War Crimes of the Dutch Government in Iraq and Syria"

"The War Crimes of the Dutch Government in Iraq and Syria"

Report by Sonja van den Ende
Independent Journalist
GLOBAL NEWS ARUBA  & ONE WORLD PRESS

20 OCTOBER 2019

In an attack by a Dutch F-16 on a car bomb factory in Iraq in 2015, at least seventy civilian deaths occurred, revealed by the regular Dutch MSM. The bombing completely destroyed a neighborhood in the Iraqi city of Hawija on the night of 2 to 3 June 2015. It was one of the bloodiest attacks by the International Coalition against a so-called military target of ISIS, but killed at least seventy innocent civilians.

Also, the Dutch Parliament committed war crimes in Syria. The Dutch government was sending lethal and non-lethal aid during the period 2015-2018 to both Syria and Iraq and flew, as we know by now, at least 2,100 combat missions to allegedly to fight ISIS. Much proof has been gathered over the last five years that the International Coalition, which the Dutch were part of, didn’t bomb ISIS but tried to attack the Syrian Arab Army. Also, according to some sources, they hit civilians. Now we have the proof that they did so in Hawija, Iraq, in June 2015, just before the invasion of ISIS.


Someone leaked this information from the Dutch Parliament to the regular MSM and it's now public that the Netherlands, like most other Western countries and the US, was, according to some experts, most likely guilty of giving assistance, funding, and aid to jihadi groups, which they called moderate rebels, who committed war crimes and crimes against humanity.


The US Pentagon confirms that at least seventy civilians were killed in the attack on the night of the third of June 2015. Eyewitnesses speak of a much higher numbers of deaths, hundreds of wounded, and at least 23 children who died during the Dutch attack. It was generally known to residents of Hawija that refugee families were staying around the factory, however, they were bombed by the Dutch.


Dutch F-16 fighter jets have been executing air attacks on tactical locations of ISIS in Iraq since October 2014, which were being coordinated by the American Central Command (CENTCOM) and the Joint Forces Air Component Command in Kuwait.The Dutch forces operated from the Shaheed Mwaffaq Air Basein Jordan.The Dutch conducted an average of one or two sorties per day; by November 17th, 2014, Dutch F-16s had dropped 75 bombs on so-called ISIS targets in Iraq.

January 2016

On 29 January, 2016, the Netherlands decided to intensify its contribution to the fight against ISIS with bombings in Syria.Militarily, this included supplying non-lethal support to the Iraqi forces and the so-called Iraqi Peshmerga forces, arming the Peshmerga forces, and F-16 air attacks in Syria on strategic ISIS targets and on ISIS supply lines from eastern Syria into Iraq (avoiding air attacks which would benefit the Syrian Assad government).

Support for Terrorist Groups

The government of the Netherlands designated €70 million to fund what they called the Syrian rebel groups or opposition fighting the government of President Bashar al-Assad. It provided support to at least 22 rebel groups in Syria from 2015 to early 2018.


While no new statements were made about the legal justification for the military support to what they call “moderate Syrian opposition”, "stopping ISIS’s advance", or "breaking ISIS’s military force", that justification was still made upon the presumption of what they call right of collective self-defenseto prevent an immediately imminent armed attack from ISIS in Syria on Iraq.


The debate held at the Dutch parliament in 2018 was a shameful debate, with sectarian issues, Kurdish versus Turks, the only thing that was established was that the Dutch government gave what they called Non Lethal Aid (NLA program), to the so-called Syrian rebels, which turned out to be “fake”. They willingly and knowingly supported the terrorists in Syria, especcially the Levant Front, paid their salaries, and gave them Toyota pickup trucks.

Conclusion

Hawija in Iraq is just the tip of the iceberg, I am sure a lot of more war crimes in Syria and Iraq will be revealed in the coming years. A lot more research needs to be done to make the guilty ones, among them members of the current government of the Netherlands, like Prime-minister Rutte, but also former Ministers of Foreign Affairs, like Bert Koenders and Uri Rosenthal, prosecuted and trialed, preferably by an independent tribunal.

The African Swine Fever Outbreak, Devastating Impacts on Food Supply

By Prof Dr Binoy Kampmark
Cambridge Scholar
Global News Aruba

October 20, 2019

You cannot get away from it, at least in print or in Google land. African swine fever is doing its rounds, cutting through the swine population of Asia with remorseless dedication.  Since its deadly debut in China last year, it has done away with some 25 percent of the globe’s pig population.  The symptoms are dramatic and lethal (mortality rates range from 95 to 100 percent), with the infected animal haemorrhaging and perishing between a period of five to fifteen days.  This decline has sparked all manner of comment: a feared deprivation of pork dishes, a spark of hope in exports of pork untouched by the disease and alternative meat supplies, and the more serious issue of food security.

In China itself, the decline of pork is causing a strain of desperation, though it is always marked by reassurance and stiff-upper lip confidence.  Pork supplies, both domestically and internationally, had been seen to be something of an essential in Chinese food security.  In September, the country’s pig population, numbering some 440 million animals, had shrunk by 41.1 percent.  While figures coming out of various Chinese ministries should be viewed with a healthy dose of scepticism, the numbers from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs have caused a stir.  Such contractions are perpetuating and will continue to perpetuate a loss in the global consumption of protein.

On Monday, China’s Premier, Li Keqiang did something uncharacteristic for the politburo: he ventured to a roadside stall to test the vox populi on the subject of rising pork prices.  Not that the episode lacked its fair share of choreographic sense.  The owner was suitably stoic; it simply would not do to panic.  “Our prices have also risen a bit accordingly.  The effect on business hasn’t been too big.”  Bravely dishonest for party and country, perhaps?

The disastrous wasting of domestic herds, one that sees no ebbing, has caused a spike in imports in pork.  The PRC saw some 1.3 million tonnes coming into the country in the first three quarters this year.

Other countries are also showing a certain fear in the face of rumour and speculation.  In Europe, the fever is being held at bay, though pork consumers are seeing prices rise.  But in Asian countries, the response is graver, and slightly panicked.  South Korea, for instance, is mobilising snipers and civilians in an effort to shore up its border with North Korea.  Drones equipped with thermal vision will also be deployed.  All of this is in aid of one thing: targeting infected pigs near the line of civilian control.  The South China Morning Post is positively apocalyptic. “The intensified measures aim to exterminate feral pigs in areas including Incheon, Seoul, Goseong and Bukhan River.”


As far as North Korea is concerned, the concern is that the fever is doing its worst, though official figures suggest the opposite.  The North Korean agriculture ministry claimed in a May 30 report to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) that animal deaths had been modest, with only 22 recorded on a cooperative farm some 260km north of Pyongyang.


For those in the Asia-Pacific region as yet untouched by ASF, nerves are catching.  Countries like Australia have demonstrated that terror characteristic of island mentalities: Be wary of what you import and what you let in.  Biosecurity is a tic of the Australian policy mindset, though it does not come without its ironies: the Australian scientific and agricultural sector has been arguably more devastating and disastrous for the country’s ecology than any malicious or accidental introduction.


Be that as it may, Australia’s $5 billion pork industry is nothing to sneeze at, keeping something in the order of 36,000 people busy.  But off Australian shores, the fear is that the fever is making its marauding march, with news that East Timor had become the tenth Asian nation to be added to the list.  Customs officials are proving edgier than usual, and the federal Agricultural Minister Bridget McKenzie is getting a tad judgmental.


“People are still disregarding our biosecurity laws.  We can send them home, we can slap significant fines on them and I’ll be encouraging our biosecurity officials to be doing exactly that with those offenders.”

On Saturday, a Vietnamese woman was sent packing after arriving at Sydney Airport with quail, squid and raw pork.  The unfortunate had her visa cancelled, the result of amendments made in April.  As the Department of Agriculture described it,

“International visitors who are believed to have contravened particular provisions of the Biosecurity Act 2015 can have their visitor visa cancelled for up to three years.”


The biosecurity and vet gate keepers have their eye on one aspect of Australia’s pig population.  The 2.5 million domestic population might well be one thing, but imagine, fears Chief Veterinary Officer Dr Mark Schipp, the prospect of 15 million feral pigs being infected.  (This figure, it should be said, varies – another estimate puts the number at 24 million.)  But where crisis presents itself, there are salivating opportunities.  Australian Pork Limited chief executive Margo Andrae is one who is drooling at the prospect that Australia can “increase production and prices to fill gaps that other markets can’t supply.”


What then, to do?  From a thriving epidemic, ASF has become an enthusiastic pandemic. It is cutting through protein consumption and posing a risk to food supply, but as yet, there are no cures nor vaccines.  The UN Food and Agriculture Organisation has also noted that the disease’s impact is complicated by “the range of pig production systems coexisting in the different countries.”  Such instances, if they do at least conjure up a world without pork, may well encourage a world less reliant on the staple.  But till then, individuals such as Dr Hirofumi Kugita of the OIE are punting for the border control and biosecurity obsessives.

" The Latest Turkish-American Conspiracy Against Syria "

REPORT BY ANGKOSO NUGRAHA
Geopolitical analyst from East Java, Indonesia


17 OCTOBER 2019

ONE WORLD PRESS AGENCY
GLOBAL NEWS ARUBA PARTNER AGENCY

The sequentially ordered US forces withdrawal from Northern Syria that triggered the Turkish incursion - ostensibly against the Kurds - into “enemy territory” appears to be a strategic gimmick. The way it was announced with great fanfare under the aegis of Trump’s “great and unmatched wisdom” twitter feed, equally matched by Sultan Erdogan’s boastful claims, should definitely raise eyebrows.

"Serbia Is Surrendering To Greater Albania"
18 OCTOBER 2019

By Andrew Korybko
American political analyst

The geopolitical project of "Greater Albania" received unprecedented support from an extremely unlikely source after Serbia surprisingly surrendered to the policy of passport-free travel for its Albanian and Macedonian neighbors by 2021 as part of an entirely voluntarily initiative that Belgrade believes will boost its prospects of one day joining the EU but which dangerously risks undermining its sovereignty even further with time to the point where the patriotic slogan of "Kosovo is Serbia" might monstrously transform into "Serbia is Albania".

Regional observers of the Balkans long feared that a multi-national conflict was brewing as a result of the US-backed geopolitical project of "Greater Albania" that threatens the territorial integrity of Serbia and the Republic of ("North") Macedonia, which is why everyone was surprised when both of the countries most directly affected by this plot simply surrendered to it last week by agreeing to a policy of passport-free travel between all three. It was long suspected that Macedonian premier Zoran Zaev, who came to power after a long-running US-backed Color Revolution, was going to sell his country's interests out to its Albanian neighbor after already doing so with its Greek and Bulgarian ones, but many thought that Serbia would at least put up some principled resistance instead of rolling over and legally allowing more Albanians to invade its sovereign territory after they already succeeded in de-facto detaching the Serbs' civilizational cradle of Kosovo and Metohija from the rest of the state.


Apologists will implore the domestic and international audience to applaud this move as a much-needed pragmatic step to avoid the larger regional war that so many observers had feared, but the fact of the matter is that there was no pressing reason for Serbia to allow Albanians passport-free travel by 2021, which wasn't a 1914-like ultimatum. Instead, Belgrade simply undertook this entirely voluntary step because it believes that it will boost its prospects of one day joining the EU even though Brussels never demanded anything of the sort from Serbia (which is the actual surprise in this story). President Vucic is a diehard europhile who earnestly wants to do everything in his power to incorporate Serbia into the EU, which includes tacitly "recognizing" Kosovo as an "independent state" per the bloc's long-standing prerequisite to joining. It's with that anti-constitutional goal in mind that his decision to go ahead with the passport-free policy begins to make more sense since it's designed to pressure his people into accepting what he'd portray as a fait accompli by then.


It should be said that while many Alt-Media voices have done excellent work in raising awareness about the geostrategic ends that the US seeks to advance by coercing Serbia into "recognizing" Kosovo, few have dared to draw attention to the interests that Russia has in this as well because it's too "politically incorrect" for most people to handle. The author elaborated on the Kremlin's behind-the-scenes strategic calculus in his piece earlier this year about how "Russia Might Return To The Balkans In A Big (But Controversial) Way", which relied upon three expert analyses from Russia's highly influential and well-connected Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) think tank to prove that Moscow wouldn't really mind all that much if Serbia went along with the West's plans because it seems to have resigned itself to realizing that they're probably irreversible without the political will to make unacceptable sacrifices to change (which might not even be successful in that scenario). Therefore, the tacit Russian position seems to be to redirect the strategic dynamics instead, if at all possible.


This understanding also explains why Moscow recognized the Republic of Macedonia's anti-constitutional name change despite previously pledging not to, so it follows that it would also respect the will of Serbia's internationally recognized government as well no matter how unconstitutional of a move it may undertake regarding Kosovo. Outspoken patriotic political analyst Anna Filimonova warned that Russia's interests-driven approach to the issue risks losing the enormous soft power that it commands in Serbia in her 2018 piece about how "Russia Is Losing The Serbian People" (in Russian) because of its unwillingness to take into account extremely strong domestic public opposition to Vucic's Kosovo plans in order to avoid losing state-level contracts that serve as the contemporary basis for its influence in the Balkan country, though her words will probably fall on deaf ears because modern-day Russia broke with its Soviet predecessor's policy of "people's revolutions" long ago and now deals mostly with inter-elite relations on the state level, not interpersonal ones.


As jarring as this might be for some people, it's simply the most accurate reflection of reality as it objectively exists, which in and of itself doesn't have any value component added to it unless an individual personally wants to attach one. The same goes for Vucic's policy of passport-free travel for Albanians and Macedonians by 2021 (the latter of which will likely be Macedonian Albanians), which in and of itself is pragmatic in a political vacuum if looked at solely from the socio-economic perspective, though this approach is actually very dangerous from the standpoint of international security because it risks encouraging more illegal Albanian migration that could then be exploited to make Kosovo-like territorial demands against the state with time. Not only that, but it's also irresponsible from a political position as well because the author's two-part article series in 2015 about how "'Greater Albania' Is A Myth To Preserve The Country's Unity" explained why there's no need to appease this fascist-era geopolitical project, which is being advanced to prevent Albania from falling apart.


Even so, Vucic is willing to risk losing even more of his country's sovereignty in the future as a result of the long-term demographic consequences that this capitulation could foreseeably cause simply because he believes that it's the secret to fast-tracking Serbia's membership in the EU by indirectly facilitating Belgrade's "recognition" of Kosovo. It's difficult to imagine why this wouldn't happen by the time that policy enters into force since the Kosovo Albanians might already have Albanian citizenship at that point and therefore make this a fait accompli anyhow after receiving the Belgrade-approved right to travel back and forth from the occupied province to the rest of Serbia without experiencing any difficulties at the line of control. In other words, the Albanian invasion of Kosovo will proceed even deeper into the Serbian heartland than ever before as the Hybrid War on Serbia presses on, resulting in the worst-ever nightmare scenario that would send chills down the spine of any true Serbian patriot, and that's the slogan of "Kosovo is Serbia" monstrously transforming into "Serbia is Albania".

"Will Iran Be The Next To Withdraw From Syria?"

October 17, 2019
Report by Andrew Korybko  
AMERICAN POLITICAL ANALYST ONEWORLD.PRESS 

The smoothness with which the US' "sudden" withdrawal played out and the Pentagon's decision not to militantly enforce the so-called "deconfliction line" along the Euphrates River after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) triumphantly crossed it en route to protecting their new Kurdish "allies" strongly suggest that these were premeditated decisions indirectly coordinated with Russia in advance as part of the "New Detente" whereby Moscow's reciprocal "compromise" would be in "convincing" Damascus to request Iran's dignified but "phased withdrawal" next on the "face-saving" basis that its anti-terrorist assistance is no longer required.

Controlled Explanations Rule the Western World

Prof Dr Paul Craig Roberts
October 20 - 2019

Now that the lying machine that comprises the US and Western media has failed with the Russiagate propaganda, the machine has switched to Chinagate. 


https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/white-house/article235990528.html?


The least trusted American Institution, other than the CIA, is the FBI. McClatchy news reports that the FBI has “expanded its task force on election security beyond examining Russian efforts ahead of the 2020 race to include intelligence activities by China, Iran and North Korea.”

“A White House official told McClatchy that the National Security Council stands by its assessment made public in June that Beijing intends to influence the election to suit its interests.”


In other words Trump is being set up by his own National Security Council so that if Trump wins reelection it will be because he was elected by China, Iran, and North Korea.


Notice that there is no investigation of Israel’s enormous influence on US elections.


What kind of “intelligence” idiots think that Americans can be influenced in their vote by thoroughly demonized China, Iran and North Korea? If this is intelligence, the agencies are a total waste of money. Close the useless agencies and pay for national health.


The function of the FBI is to protect the handful of the ruling elite and to persecute on false charges every American who dares to speak the truth. No FBI indictment is believeable. The FBI is nothing but the servant of the ruling class. The greatest enemies of America are the FBI, CIA, Justice (sic) Department, Israel Lobby, Democrtic National Committee, presstitute media, and military/security complex. These self-serving entities are destroying America.


Horny President Bill Clinton was ensnared by Epstein, a likely CIA/Mossad agent, in numerous underage female sexual acts, and in exchange for protection from exposure, or for money, gave over the American media—90% of it—to control by 6 mega-companies. This was a violation of US anti-trust law and of the American tradition of a dispersed and varied media. It was the end of any media independence. Ever since they all sing the same song and tell the same lies.


This is why Americans have no reliable information.


Americans were told that they would benefit from corporations sending their middle class jobs to China.


They are told that there is no harm from 5G and vaccinations.


They are told that a few fanatical Muslims defeated the national security of the United States and humiliated the world’s only superpower.

Osama bin Laden and Afghanistan were blamed. Then the blame was shifted to Saddam Hussein and Iraq was the next invaded. Then tribes in Pakistan were bombed and then Libya destroyed. The next were to be Syria and Iran, but for now the Russians have prevented Washington’s attacks. Somalia was bombed, and hundreds of thousands of “refugees” have been dumped on Minnesota and Maine and doubtless elsewhere.


Then it was Russiagate to get rid of Trump who threatened to make peace with Russia, thus reducing the orchestrated threat that keeps the military/security complex’s budget full of people’s money who can’t afford medical care.



Now it is Impeach-gate with Chinagate in reserve if the former fails.

What future can people stupid enough to believe this string of lies possibly have?


The Western world consists of weak impotent men incapable rising up and defending their heritage and their ethnic existence. The semi-men of the Western world, scared to death by “political incorrectness” and “identity politics,” are a finished race that won’t be around much longer, not that anyone will notice their demise. Already women in Sweden can’t leave their homes without being raped by the immigrant invaders with which their Swedish-hating, pro-immigrant-invader government has imported into Sweden.

Everywhere the West is turning into a Tower of Babel. Will there be a holocaust? Was Enoch Powell correct when he predicted rivers of blood?

" University Woes: Academics and Scholarship in Crisis. The Managerial Class Gets Uppity "

Prof Dr. Binoy Kampmark
Cambridge Scholar
Global News Aruba Contributor

The university, in a global sense, is passing into a managerial oblivion.  There are a few valiant holdouts, but they have the luxury of history, time, and learning.  Cambridge and Oxford, for instance, still boast traditional academics, soaking erudition, and education as something more than a classroom brawl of the mind.  They can barricade themselves against the regulatory disease that has made imbeciles of administrators and cretins of the pretend academic class.  They can, for instance, rely on their colleges to fight the university, a concept so utterly alien to others.  Across Europe, the management structures wear heavily.  In the United States, the corporate university took hold decades ago.  Academics are retiring, committing suicide, and going on gardening leave.

In Australia, a more serious problem has become evident: You cannot expose the obvious.  You cannot, for instance, expose the evident plagiarism of colleagues.  You cannot expose corruption within the university, notably the sort that celebrates graft over industry.  You cannot discuss the decline in academic standards, or the purposeful lowering of admission levels.  The obvious, in a certain sense, is that standards will be lowered if there is a need for largesse and revenue.  The natural impulse of fat cat Vice-Chancellors is to cry foul that the government of the day has not forked out from the tax payer’s wallet.  Pay the university; fund more places.  Give us more funding, because we are teaching and research institutions.


The problem with this dubious formulation is that funding a university in its current, monstrous form is tantamount to giving a drug lord a state subsidy for a pool, a perk, or a prostitute.  (A suitable doctoral dissertation: Compare the rhetoric of Pablo Escobar with Australian university management from 2000 to 2019.  You won’t be disappointed.)  Vice-Chancellors of the university world are white collar criminals on par with bankers, and, like those bankers, claim they perform an invaluable service.  When they fail, they are simply moved on to another institution, leaving their sludge in ample supply.


The pro-vice chancellors, the deputies, the deputy-deputies and the deputies under them, are co-conspirators in an enterprise that robs students blind and plunders the goodwill of academic staff.  Never has there been a better case to start putting these types into re-education camps, the very sort that they wish academics who disagree with them to attend.  Apropos on that point, it is notable that universities in Australia love sending disagreeing and disagreeable academics to counsellors hired by the university itself.  Thought-crime thrives down under.


Be that as it may, the recent news that Murdoch University in Western Australia, has decided to counter-sue an academic for exposing the lowering of academic standards, should come as confirmation.  How utterly revolting to expose such a squalid secret!  How revolting to believe that standards should be kept!  (The issue here, as much as anything else, is to put to bed the snake oil language of being a “global educator”.  A local non-educator will suffice.)
