Key findings of the report include:

  • In Pakistan, 24 men were reported as killed or targeted multiple times. Missed strikes on these men killed 874 people, including 142 children.
  • In Yemen, 17 men were reported killed or targeted multiple times. Missile strikes on these men killed 273 others and accounted for almost half of all confirmed civilian casualties and 100% of all recorded child deaths.
  • In targeting Ayman al Zawahiri, the CIA killed 76 children and 29 adults. They failed twice, and Ayman al Zawahiri is reportedly still alive.
  • It took the US six attempts to kill Qari Hussain, a Pakistani target. During these attempts, 128 people were killed, including 13 children.
  • Each assassination target on the US government’s so-called Kill List ‘died’ on average more than three times before their actual death.

The US government’s drone programme has come under increasing scrutiny after a number of strikes that hit large numbers of civilians by mistake. It was recently revealed – as a result of investigations by Reprieve – that the US government compensates civilian victims of drone strikes in Yemen.

Jennifer Gibson, Staff Attorney at Reprieve who compiled the report, said: “These ‘high value targets’ appear to be doing the impossible – dying not once, not twice, but as many as six times. At the same time, hundreds of unknown men, women and children are also caught in the crosshairs. President Obama continues to insist drone strikes are ‘precise’, but when targeting one person instead kills as many as 128 others, there’s only one conclusion that can be drawn – there’s nothing targeted about the US drone programme.”

Pray Harder, General Petraeus Called upon to Pressure Congress to Syrian War

UPDATE CORRECTION:

I misread below article as indicating that Petraeus was the one “going on 6 TV networks to hawk Syrian War”, I am sorry for this mistake, however the jest of this post remains the same. It is shocking to me to read that it is President Obama himself who is going on 6 TV networks to hawk the Syrian War instead! I think that is even more amazing that Obama has sunk to that level of desperation to start war despite the nation’s and world’s oppositions!

 

 

It is desperation time for the Obama Administration when it recalls the general it got rid of just days after the 2012 election by exposing his adulterous affair with his biographer. Petraeus who is still a member of the network of the elite ruling class is going to try to strong-arm the reluctant Congress to override the 91% of American citizens who are calling, emailing, and writing our Senators and Representatives night and day to stop this insane war.

Do not be fooled, this resigned adulterous general is not concerned with the welfare of we the people nor of the Republic of the United States of America, no as sad and bitter as it may be, Petraeus is once again paying his dues to his masters by going on no less than 6 TV networks to hawk Syrian War.

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/petraeus-calls-on-congress-to-back-white-house-on-syria-96413.html

Petraeus calls on Congress to back White House on Syria

In his years as U.S. commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, Petraeus was regarded by many Republican lawmakers as a god on military matters.

So the imprimatur of the former four-star general could help Obama woo skeptical Republicans, many of whom say their districts are overwhelmingly opposed to intervention. The Petraeus statement follows endorsements of Obama’s measure this week by Hillary Clinton, his first secretary of State; and Robert M. Gates, his first secretary of defense and a holdover from President George W. Bush……..

………On Wednesday, Petraeus will give his first paid speech since resigning as CIA director in November. It’ll be at Duke University and is titled, “America and the World: A Conversation with Gen. David Petraeus.” Petraeus is working with six veterans’ support groups, and is chairman of the newly created KKR Global Institute for Kohlberg Kravis Roberts. He also is teaching this fall at the University of Southern Californiam, and beginning Monday at the City University of New York……….

Why should anyone listen to this cast off of the administration who is just being brought in to push ahead the agenda to start World War III? Petraeus who is living high in his taxpayer retirement with all the honors and perks of a hero is acting like nothing but a high class prostitute to the elite. Dishonor!  Disgusting! Shameful! Ungrateful! Imperial! Blackguard! Lowdown Liar! Traitor! Blood-thirsty-tool of the Central Bankers and Wall Street Traders!  Those are the epitaphs that fit someone who would encourage irresponsible war actions.

Progressive anti-war Democrats and Tea-Party Republicans and Libertarians and Independents who still want to honor our Constitution and Freedom must rally together to throw the war hawks and horses out of Washington D C.

It makes me wonder how many more blackened skeletons reside in Petraeus’ closet for him to be called into service again? Is he or his family being threatened, or is he just this evil himself? That does not even matter though because his words and their fruits are treasonous to the Constitution and the Republic, if he has a part in setting the world on fire as a result, God be merciful, I would not want to be in his place.

Current indications suggest that Congress could reject the Obama administration’s draft resolution on Syria, setting up a potential constitutional crisis if Obama goes ahead and launches the attack anyway, as Secretary of State John Kerry has clearly suggested will happen.

Exclusive: High Level Source Confirms Secret US Nuclear Warhead Transfer

Anthony Gucciardi & Alex Jones
Infowars.com
September 3, 2013

“A high level source inside the military has now confirmed to us that Dyess Air Force base is actively moving nuclear warheads to the East Coast of the United States in a secret transfer that has no paper trail.

 

“According to the high level military source, who has a strong record of continually being proven correct in deep military activity, the Dyess Air Force Commander authorized unknown parties to transfer the nuclear warheads to an unknown location that has been reported to be South Carolina, where the warheads will then be picked up and potentially utilized.This is of particular interest not only due to the fact that the Syrian situation has escalated to the point of a very realistic hot war scenario, but due to the fact that Dyess has repeatedly denied the existence of nuclear warheads inside the base.

The brief report from the top level military source, which was written in a rush to get the information out, reads:

“Dyess is beginning to move out nuclear war heads today. I got a tap from DERMO earlier. He said it was the first time they have been even acknowledged since being put there in the 80′s. No signature was required for transfer… There was no directive. He said that Dyess Commander was on site to give authority to release. No one knew where they were going really, but the truck driver said to take them to South Carolina and another pick up will take them from there.”

The fact that this transfer was not signed for and there were no papers is key. It shows how the military is now secretly operating with the transfer of nuclear weapons, and what’s more, we know that DERMO (a military base in Florida) is a hotbed of special operations. Why is DERMO operating the nuclear warheads out of Dyess Air Force base with no paper trail? This shows that this is a highly secretive, black ops style move here that the military does not want on record.

The fact is that they don’t move all of these assets unless they plan on using them. Nuclear warheads are not simply moved to the East Coast for no reason, and the bottom line is that these missiles are likely being used for something even much greater than Syria.”

When All Else Fails, Go to War, $2,000,000,000,000. Debt to FED

“War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!”

No justice nor freedom nor creation of goods to the betterment of mankind will come from this war industry owned by the central bank corporations of the world.

 

Only blood, carnage, destruction, homelessness, poverty, disease, mayhem, pain, and misery will result in yet another United States of America/United Kingdom/NATO war theater being blasted open upon Syria.

 

The United States of American slave debt that the government office holders have agreed to with the Federal Reserve but that mankind does not owe to the Federal Reserve, $2,000,000,000,000. (two thousand billion dollars) was created out of thin air. It is bogus. It is counterfeit.

 

It is a debt that is unconstitutional and illegal and it therefore is an imaginary monster that cannot survive the light of day. Expose it! Fling open the closet door and look under the bed and turn on the light, for heaven sake don’t let it torment these United States of America and the rest of the world another moment!

 

 

 

Michael Rivero,

http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/allwarsarebankerwars.php

As long as Private Central Banks are allowed to exist, inevitably as the night follows day there will be poverty, hopelessness, and millions of deaths in endless World Wars, until the Earth itself is sacrificed in flames to Mammon.

The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous.

 

 

Arrest the bankers, I say! Take back the stolen powers to create money back to the Congress. If the present members of Congress don’t want the responsibility, then throw them out of office and elect those who will be fiscally accountable.

 

 

To attempt to comprehend the magnitude of and how enslaving this $2,000,000,000,000. debt is look at the following explanations from

http://ihtd.org/festivalguide/resources/how-much-is-a-trillion-dollars/

 

 

If a person’s salary is $40,000 per year it would take:

25 years to earn $1 Million
25 Thousand years to earn $1 Billion,
25 Million years to earn $1 Trillion

If you lived to be 80 years of age, to have:

$1 Million you would have to save $34 each day of your life,
$1 Billion you would have to save $34,000 each day of your life,
$1 Trillion you would have to save $34 Million each day of your life
If you stack a trillion-worth of $1000 bills together, then:
1 million dollars = 4 inches high
1 billion dollars = 364 feet high
1 trillion dollars = 63 miles high
(give or take a foot or two)
Note that this is a STACK, not laid end-to-end.
If you count backward, then:
1 million seconds = 12 days ago
1 billion seconds = 31 years ago
1 trillion seconds = 30,000 B.C.
(give or take a decade or two)
Slavery is the only payment the bankers really will accept because they know we are in too much debt to them.
But we do not really owe this debt to them at all after all is said and done the bankers have reaped a century and a half of payments through the wars and deaths of millions upon millions of human beings the world over.
The End Game is here and the age of the bankers is over. There is hope! A few like Ron Paul know what we could do to regain our fiscal sanity.

IN TIMES OF WAR: A PRAYER FOR PEACE – CLAIRE K. RIVERO

http://whatreallyhappened.com/node/264445

http://investmentwatchblog.com/moodys-puts-major-u-s-biggest-banks-on-review-for-downgrade/

ATTENTION RIVERO’S RANGERS! This is a call to keyboards.
Everyone needs to go out to their social media, email lists, and the corporate media websites, and post the following two questions.
1. Why would Syria’s Assad invite United Nations chemical weapons inspectors to Syria, then launch a chemical weapons attack against women and children on the very day they arrive, just miles from where they are staying?

2. If Assad were going to use chemical weapons, wouldn’t he use them against the hired mercenary army trying to oust him? What does he gain attacking women and children? Nothing! The gain is all on the side of the US Government desperate to get the war agenda going again.

As I type these words, US trained and equipped forces are already across the border into Syria, and US naval forces are sailing into position to launch a massive cruise missile attack into Syria that will surely kill more Syrians than were claimed to have died in the chemical attack.

Obviously, we cannot stop this madness. The US Government is listening to Wall Street and Israel and cares not what the American people think.

But what We The People can do, must do, is send a message to the world that we do not believe the war-starting lies by the US Government. We know this is a repeat of the same lies we were told about Saddam’s nuclear weapons.

The US Government is lying, and people are dying.

Send a message to the world that the American people do not support this latest aggression, and we will not stay silent while more innocents are murdered.      http://whatreallyhappened.com/node/264622

By ANI | ANI – Wed 30 Jan, 2013

The Obama administration gave green signal to a chemical weapons attack plan in Syria that could be blamed on President Bashar al Assad’s regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country, leaked documents have shown.

A new report, that contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence, showed a scheme ‘approved by Washington’.

Why Is ‘New Zealand and US Tsunami Test’ Gone Viral at This Particular Time?

“WHAT?  Everybody’s thinking it, I’m just saying it!” (Pirates of the Caribbean)

 

WHO? wants this story EVERYWHERE?

 

WHY?

 

Implications For Fukushima? The US And New Zealand Secretly Tested The First Tsunami Bomb Posted on January 3, 2013 by SilverVigilante

[…] The tests demonstrated that a series of ten large offshore blasts could potentially cause a 33-foot tsunami to destroy coastline.

Operation “Project Seal” has been top secret, and the device was a cousin of sorts to the nuclear bomb. Around 3,700 bombs were exploded during the tests, leading off in New Caledonia and later at Whangaparaoa Peninsula, in the vicinity of Auckland.[…]

 

 

New Details Emerge on World War II ‘Tsunami Bomb’ Project By Patrick Goodenough January 3, 2013

[…]The aim of the project, in the dry language of the archived documents, was “the investigation of the potentialities of inundation by means of artificially produced tidal waves for offensive purposes” – in other words, to see whether a bomb or series of bombs could generate a tsunami capable of wreaking havoc on an enemy coastal city.[…]

[…]Thomas Leech, an Auckland University professor seconded to the army, carried out tests to find out what shape and size of bomb or series of bombs, detonated in water of what depth, would have the desired effect.[…]

[…]Leech concluded that 2,000 tons of high explosive, divided into ten equal amounts and detonated as a group around five miles offshore in a location where the seabed was favorable, could potentially create a wave of 30 to 40 feet.

The papers do not name a target for the envisaged weapon, but when the New Zealand government first unlocked the files in 1999 an 87 year-old survivor of the team said it was obvious to those involved that the aim was “to flood Japan.”[…]

[…]In 1950 secret reports were still being produced in New Zealand about the World War II experiments. Leech in one document discussed the possibility of having some of his top students work on filling in some of the gaps left in the earlier findings, under the cover of regular oceanography and wave studies.

The papers do not indicate whether that ever happened but Leech left the university that same year and returned to his native Australia. He was awarded a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for his secret research on a weapon, and died in 1973.

In 1961, the U.S. Navy motivated a request for the final “Project Seal” report to be downgraded from “secret” to “restricted” by arguing that the data would be “extremely helpful” in military studies being carried out.

“Project Seal” is back in the spotlight because of the release of Secrets and Treasures, a new book by New Zealand author Ray Waru, based on a two-year trawl though the New Zealand government archives.[…]

 

 

AlterNet / By Laura Gottesdiener Researcher: U.S. Tested and Perfected a “Tsunami Bomb”

[…]”It was absolutely astonishing,” he (New Zealand author Ray Waru) told the AFP. “First that anyone would come up with the idea of developing a weapon of mass destruction based on a tsunami … and also that New Zealand seems to have successfully developed it to the degree that it might have worked.”[…]

Interesting bit of trivia the author threw into the story;

[…]Tsunami Bomb later became the name of a short-lived California punk band in the late ’90s and early 2000s.[…]

‘Tsunami Bomb’ In Development During World War II, Documents Note The Huffington Post | By Meredith Bennett-Smith Posted: 01/02/2013

[…]The tsunami-as-weapon idea had been floated even earlier than 1944, according to The Herald, which reported that they considered sending Leech to Bikini Atoll to watch the early atomic bomb tests.

Neil Kirton, a former colleague of Leech, said that, “Whether it could ever be resurrected … Under some circumstances I think it could be devastating.” (This quote has since surfaced on various conspiracy theory blogs. This link supplied by author Meredith Bennett-Smith)

I wonder why she felt that was germane to the story, oh well, it is interesting that the information has been kicking around the Internet for years and just NOW it’s coming to light….and the link mentions Tom Bearden, Lt Colonel US Army (Retired). Ane Congressman Nick Begich Sr. and US House Majority Leader Hale Boggs who disappeared in Alaskan plane crash.

Hummmmm…….WHAT does that mean? Anything? Nothing?

Ms Bennett-Smith also sees fit to close her article with this unconnected paragraph;

[…]The news of “Project Seal” follows renewed interest in a top secret plan to detonate an atomic bomb on the moon Ms Bennett-Smith’s link to her article 11/28/2012 . That plan, researched during the Cold War, was designed as a show of force to the Soviets, who were fresh off their Sputnik triumph.[…]

 

which, again, I have to question her judgment on how that belongs in this story.

(I am now even more wondering if there is not a concerted effort to viralize this story.What?Who?Why?)

And in closing this running account of some of the articles published on this viral story I post one more and notice that the photograph used to illustrate their version.

U.S. and New Zealand tested top secret ‘tsunami bomb’ during WWII — like something out of ‘James Bond’ by Erik Ortiz/NY Daily News, Wednesday, January 2, 2013

Caption under photograph used to illustrate;

Waves come ashore in Cannon Beach, Ore., in March 2011. In 1944, the United States partnered with New Zealand to test man-made tsunamis, according to New Zealand author Ray Waru.

[…]It was a bombshell experiment … that ended up a wipeout.

During World War II, the United States and New Zealand reportedly ran tests of a so-called “tsunami bomb” — in which explosives were launched into the Pacific waters in the hopes of creating waves capable of destroying small cities.[…]

Me thinks we should all be wary and look around us and see what other story(s) might be getting swept away as a result of this loud sensational story.

“Hey, Hey! What, What!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Cannot Modern Man Accomplish? BIG Science, BIG Ideas Revealed in Stories, Parables, and Fiction

I wax philosophical here as a very limited small minded inquirer into the ‘What Cannot Modern Man Accomplish? BIG Science, BIG Ideas Revealed in Stories, Parables, and Fiction’ and I restate the old wisdom that Fact is stranger than Fiction.

I believe that Fiction being organized into a coherent story with beginning, middle, and ending is much easier to communicate through than Facts which are patently harder to examine, quantify, and know as a mathematical set with anything like finality and confidence. And this is why human beings love stories. The best fictional writers always draw upon reality and what is possible, weaving their stories together with these threads of genuine universal truths.

The greatest story teller of all time, Jesus Christ, communicated genuine universal truths to his disciples through plain speaking, but through Parables did he communicate unto the crowd.

One example of a Modern Man as story teller of genuine universal truths, Michael Crichton, illustrated and illuminated BIG Science, BIG Ideas, through his fictional writings as well as his factual essays and lectures which are found all over the Internet. I mourn the loss of his revelations and high abilities to communicate the strangeness of technological advancements to the crowd through his fictional writings.

I wonder whether Crichton knew of the historical archival records out of New Zealand that nonfictional writer Ray Waru revealed in his book, Secrets and Treasures:  Our Stories Told Through the Objects at Archives New Zealand.

Crichton, who died in 2008, was an avid researcher and deeply interested man of wide education so it is possible that he could have come across something like  ‘Project Seal’ and or the archives which were written about in this article;  Tsunami bomb NZ’s devastating war secret By Eugene Bingham 5:01 AM Saturday Sep 25, 1999

Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal.

An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945.

Professor Thomas Leech’s work was considered so significant that United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb.

Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Papers stamped “top secret” show the US and British military were eager for Seal to be developed in the post-war years too. They even considered sending Professor Leech to Bikini Atoll to view the US nuclear tests and see if they had any application to his work.

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1Treasures: Our Stories Told Through the Objects at Archives New Zealand&objectid=14727

Whether he had knowledge of those archives or not Michael Crichton wrote a fictional account in his story of a plot to use a tsunami making device for a political end in his 2004, Science Fiction, Techno-thriller, Dystopian Novel, State of Fear.

Overview from widipedia.org;

State of Fear is, like many of Crichton’s books, a fictional work that uses speculative science and technological innovations as fundamental storyline devices. The debate over global warming serves as the backdrop for the book. Crichton supplies a personal afterword and two appendices that link the fictional part of the book with real examples of his thesis.[…]

[…]In the finale of the story, the group travels to a remote island in the Solomons to stop the ELF’s “piece de resistance”, a tsunami that will inundate the coastline of California[…]200px-MichaelCrighton_StateOfFear

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Fear

Now my emphasis in this post is not the debate over global warming and I will reserve that aspect of the novel for another time. I rather want to state the obvious fact that Michael Crichton has demonstrated in his writings that he was very well informed about scientific and medical research and that he wrote his novels with well documented background material as inspiration for them.

Despite their fabulous entertaining aspects Crichton’s writings contain reams of facts in the areas of science and politics and history all into the mixture of his novels that serve as the basis of further research and inquiry into the marvelous What Cannot Modern Man Accomplish.

Michael Crichton because of his vast intellectual honesty and brilliant mind was very much a thorn in the side of those who would politicize science, his voice is greatly missed, especially now that things such as ‘Project Seal’ are becoming widely known. I close this post with the Author’s Afterword/appendices from wikipedia;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_Fear

[…]In Appendix I, Crichton warns both sides of the global warming debate against the politicization of science. Here he provides two examples of the disastrous combination of pseudo-science and politics: the early 20th-century ideas of eugenics (which he directly cites as one of the theories that allowed for the Holocaust) and Lysenkoism.

This appendix is followed by a bibliography of 172 books and journal articles that Crichton presents “…to assist those readers who would like to review my thinking and arrive at their own conclusions.” (State of Fear, pp, 583).[…]

Here is a Reblog of book review of his book, “Secrets & Treasures”

This book is in bookstores now.

Just so it’s out there, I love history. Always have, always will. The teacher always made the difference for me when studying any subject and this book is no different. Secrets & Treasures is written like Ray Waru is standing with you, talking and teaching you about every detail he picked up in the short time he had at Archives New Zealand, while holding up amazing photos to accompany his words.

The book itself is simply beautiful, to compliment the outstanding work inside. Waru has done a huge amount of research, and has said in interviews the idea started with the tapes from the Erebus disaster (a topic which takes up eight pages of this almost 400 page book). The book is split in to five parts plus an introduction, and covers a huge range of topics, from the little-known Declaration of Independence of…
