Triad Revisited – A Brief Look

A great number of brave and honest Police and Judiciary, which is always the rule, have stood against the following. May they continue to do that and and may all of us support them.

The Triad is Russia, China and the United States until Israel replaces the United States, then it is  Russia, China and Israel – then there were two, Russia and Israel and then there was one: ISRAEL THE HOME OF THE DAJJAL, ANTICHRIST – that last move is the real reason that Yamantau exists

The idea that Britain and France and the United States and Russia and the League of Nations had any right to divide up the Ottoman Empire in any fashion because of a War started in Europe among Europeans is absurd. That this war, World War I, which the Europeans dragged the Ottoman Empire into via the slaving colonialization of the region by Europeans (especially Oil grabs and “Emirate” creation beginning in 1892) and a specious European “alliance” forced on the Ottomans, had any lawful bearing on the lawful dominion of Arabs over the region is as ridiculous as is any idea that the European troops, or any other, had any business carrying their vile internecine war into the region for any reason. World War I was financed on both European sides by Rothschild and other Zionist Judaist Bankers for the specific purpose of invading the Middle East and unlawfully pillaging the Holy Land of Christ belonging to the Christian and Muslim Arab people and steal it from them. This is being carried forth by the Triad of superpowers, The United States and Russia and Red China, into a vile excuse to conquer the whole world for the Pan European Illuminati New World Order.

Defense Intelligence Agency

The DIA, Defense Intelligence Agency (formed 1961), is part of the Intelligence Linkups that are part of the infrastructure in which is embedded the answer to the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962). That crisis was staged by the Illuminati New World Order and gave the reason (brinksmanship of World War III) for a permanent link up of the Defense Computers of the United States and Russia and Red China and anyone else in the Nuclear Club. There NEVER will be a Nuclear World War Three, unless the powers that be decide to have it happen. Those powers are already in total control of the Triad of the United States of America and Russia and Red China. They control the little Devil puppet Israel. Their high ranking minions are in control of the United Nations. Their center is the Pan European Illuminati. They already control all nuclear proliferation in the world. All the scare tactics about rogue Nuclear Powers and threats are a staged dog and pony show. They use this act of theirs to manipulate the whole world. They are the behind the scenes real movers and “powers behind the throne.”

Iraq was never a Nuclear Threat to anyone. Iran is not one now. For that matter, Israel (which does have 200 Nuclear warheads) isn’t a Nuclear threat, but they use Nuclear Blackmail, just like the big three do, to get their way in things. None of that happens except it is approved ahead of time.

Even the Central Banks don’t have ultimate power, they only have the power delegated to them by those who control these Nuclear National Military Infrastructures.

All Corporations and Industry, as well as the Banks, take their orders from these unseen International Militarist Power Brokers. Even the Intelligence Agencies of various countries, including the Triad, are permeated by these shadow dwellers.

The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) is a key member of the Intelligence Community of the United States, and is a major producer and manager of military intelligence for the United States Department of Defense, employing over 16,500 military and civilian employees worldwide.[2] The Defense Intelligence Community is headed by the DIA, through its Director (who chairs the Military Intelligence Board), and it coordinates the activities of the ArmyNavyMarine Corps, and Air Force intelligence components. The DIA and Defense Intelligence Community provide military intelligence to warfightersdefense policymakers andforce planners within the Department of Defense and the United States Intelligence Community, in support of U.S. military planning and operations and weapon systems acquisition. The DIA, designated in 1986 as a Defense Department combat support agency, was established in 1961 as a result of a decision by Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, under President John F. Kennedy. The Department of Defense created the DIA with the publication of Directive 5105.21, “Defense Intelligence Agency” on 1 August, effective 1 October 1961. The DIA was preceded by the Counter Intelligence Corps.[3]

[edit] Overview

The Defense Intelligence Analysis Center on Bolling Air Force Base

DIA’s Director is a three-star military officer who serves as principal adviser to the Secretary of Defense and to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on matters of military intelligence. The Director also chairs the Military Intelligence Board, which coordinates activities of the defense intelligence community.[2] The exact numbers and specific budget information are not publicly released due to security considerations. DIA has major operational activities at the Pentagon, the Defense Intelligence Analysis Center (DIAC), Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C.38°50′53″N 77°00′43″W / 38.848°N 77.012°W / 38.848; -77.012, the National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) in Fort Detrick, Maryland, and the Missile and Space Intelligence Center (MSIC) in Huntsville, Alabama. DIA is a member of the United States Intelligence Community, reporting to the Director of National Intelligence.

DIA possesses a diverse workforce skilled in the areas of military history and doctrine, economics, physics, chemistry, world history, political science, bio-sciences, computer sciences, and many other fields of expertise.

The Agency responds to the needs of a variety of customers, from the President of the United States to the soldier in the field. Its work encompasses all aspects of military intelligence requirements – from highly complex missile trajectory data to biographical information on foreign military leaders.

In August 2008, the agency announced that it would subject each of its 5,700 prospective and current employees to a polygraph interrogation at least once annually.[4]

[edit] Mission

The DIA’s mission is to provide timely, objective, and cogent military intelligence to warfighters, defense planners, and defense and national security policymakers.[5]

The DIA is considered to be a member of the Intelligence Community. The director of the DIA is the main adviser to the United States Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on matters related to military intelligence. Under the support of the Military Intelligence Board, the DIA unifies the Defense Intelligence Community on major issues such as the number of deployed forces, assessments, policy, and resources. To help weapon systems planners and the domestic weapons industry, the DIA plays a major role in providing intelligence on foreign weapon systems.

[edit] Vision

DIA’s vision is the integration of highly skilled intelligence professionals with leading edge technology to discover information and create knowledge that provides warning, identifies opportunities, and delivers overwhelming advantage to our warfighters, defense planners, and defense and national security policymakers.[5]

[edit] History

After World War II until the creation of DIA, the three Military Departments collected, produced and distributed their intelligence for individual use. This turned out to be duplicative, costly, and ineffective as each department provided their estimates to the Secretary of Defense or to other governmental agencies.

The Defense Reorganization Act of 1958 wanted to correct these deficiencies by assigning responsibility for Unified and Specified Command intelligence support. However, the intelligence responsibilities remained unclear, the coordination was poor and the first results were short of national reliability and focus. As a result of this poor organization, President Dwight D. Eisenhower appointed the Joint Study Group in 1960 to find better ways for organizing the nation’s military intelligence activities.

Acting on the recommendations of the Joint Study Group, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara advised the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of his decision to establish the Defense Intelligence Agency in February 1961. He ordered them to develop a concept plan that would integrate all the military intelligence of the DoD. During the spring and summer of 1961, asCold War tensions flared over the Berlin WallAir Force Lieutenant General Joseph Carroll (soon to become DIA’s first director) took the lead in planning and organizing this new agency. The JCS published DoD Directive 5105.21, “Defense Intelligence Agency” on 1 August, and DIA began operations with a handful of employees in borrowed office space on 1 October 1961.

DIA reported to the Secretary of Defense through the JCS. The new Agency’s mission was the continuous task of collecting, processing, evaluating, analyzing, integrating, producing, and disseminating military intelligence for the DoD. Other objectives included more efficiently allocating scarce intelligence resources, more effectively managing all DoD intelligence activities, and eliminating redundancies in facilities, organizations, and tasks.

Following DIA’s establishment, the Services transferred intelligence functions and resources to it on a time-phased basis to avoid rapidly degrading the overall effectiveness of defense intelligence. A year after its formation, in October 1962, the Agency faced its first major intelligence test during the superpower confrontation that developed after Soviet missiles were discovered at bases in Cuba by U.S. Air Force spy planes.

In late 1962, DIA established the Defense Intelligence School (now theNational Defense Intelligence College), and on 1 January 1963, it activated a new Production Center. Several Service elements were merged to form this production facility, which occupied the “A” and “B” Buildings at Arlington Hall StationVirginia.

The Agency also added an Automated Data Processing (ADP) Center on 19 February, a Dissemination Center on 31 March, and a Scientific and Technical Intelligence Directorate on 30 April 1963. DIA assumed the staff support functions of the J-2, Joint Staff, on 1 July 1963. Two years later, on 1 July 1965, DIA accepted responsibility for the Defense Attaché System – the last function the Services transferred to DIA.

During these early years of DIA’s existence, Agency attempts to establish itself as DoD’s central military intelligence organization met with continuing Service opposition. At the same time, the Vietnam War severely tested the fledgling Agency’s ability to produce accurate, timely intelligence. In particular, the war increased defense intelligence’s involvement in efforts to account for American service members missing or captured in Southeast Asia.

During the 1960s, DIA analysts focused on: China’s detonation of an atomic bomb and the launching of its Cultural Revolution; increasing unrest among African nations; fighting in Cyprus and Kashmir; and the missile gap between the US and the Soviets. In the late 1960s, crises that tested intelligence responsiveness included: the Tet Offensive in Vietnam; the Six-Day War between Egypt and Israel; continuing troubles in Africa, particularly NigeriaNorth Korea‘s seizure of the USS Pueblo; and the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia.

The early 1970s were transitional years as the Agency shifted its focus from consolidating its functions and establishing itself as a credible producer of national intelligence. This proved difficult at first since sweeping manpower decrements between 1968 and 1975 had reduced Agency manpower by 31 percent and precipitated mission reductions and a broad organizational restructuring. Challenges facing DIA at this time included: the rise of Ostpolitik in Germany; the emergence of the Palestine Liberation Organization in the Mideast; and the U.S. incursion into Cambodia from South Vietnam.

The Agency’s reputation grew considerably by the mid-1970s, as decision makers increasingly recognized the value of its products. Agency analysts in 1972 concentrated on Lebanon, President Richard Nixon‘s visit to China, the formation of Sri LankaSalvador Allende‘s regime in Chile, and the prisoners of war being held in Southeast Asia. Subsequent challenges involved: détente; the development of arms control agreements; the Paris peace talks (Vietnam); the Yom Kippur War; and global energy concerns.

Intense Congressional review during 1975-76 created turbulence within the national Intelligence Community. The Murphy and Rockefeller Commission investigations of charges of intelligence abuse ultimately led to an Executive Order that modified many Intelligence Community functions. At the same time, with American involvement in Vietnam ending, defense intelligence faced a significant decline in resources. During this period, DIA conducted numerous studies on ways of improving its intelligence products. Ultimately, the Agency strengthened its support to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and the Unified & Specified Commands, and also modernized the National Military Intelligence Center (NMIC). Faced with similar resource challenges, DoD also sought to centralize its activities. Despite these and other Community-wide efforts to improve intelligence support, the loss of resources during the 1970s limited the Community’s ability to collect and produce timely intelligence and ultimately contributed to intelligence shortcomings in Iran, Afghanistan, and other strategic areas.

As resources declined, intelligence requirements expanded. By the late 1970s, Agency analysts were focused on Lebanon, China, South Africa, terrorism, and Southeast Asia POW issues. In 1977, a charter revision further clarified DIA’s relationship with the JCS and the Secretary of Defense. Specifically, the Secretary assigned staff supervisory responsibility over DIA in the resource area to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence, while giving the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs supervisory responsibility regarding policy matters. Analytical efforts within the Agency at the time centered on the death of Mao Tse-Tung, aircraft hijacking, the Israeli raid on Entebbe Airport, unrest in South Africa, and continuing Middle East tensions.

Special DIA task forces were set up to monitor crises such as the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the overthrow of Iranian monarchy, and the taking of U.S. hostages in the American embassy in Teheran in 1979. Also, of serious concern were the Vietnamese takeover in Phnom Penh, the China-Vietnam border war, the overthrow of Idi Amin in Uganda, the North-South Yemen dispute, troubles in Pakistan, border clashes between Libya and Egypt, the Sandinista takeover in Nicaragua, and the Soviet movement of combat troops to Cuba during the signing of the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty II.

Following the promulgation in 1979 of Executive Order 12036, which restructured the Intelligence Community and better outlined DIA’s national and departmental responsibilities, the Agency was reorganized around five major directorates: production, operations, resources, external affairs, and J-2 support.

DIA came of age in the 1980s by focusing heavily on the intelligence needs of both field commanders and national-level decision makers. DIA’s publication in 1981 of the first in a series of whitepapers on the strengths and capabilities of Soviet military forces titled Soviet Military Power met with wide acclaim. Ten such booklets were published subsequently over roughly the next decade. World crises continued to flare and included the downing of two Libyan Su-22s by American F-14s over the Gulf of Sidra, an Israeli F-16 raid to destroy an Iraqi nuclear reactor, two Iranian hijackings, Iranian air raids on Kuwait, and the release of American hostages in Iran.

Other analysis at this time was focused on the war over the Falkland Islands, Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, and Operation URGENT FURY in Grenada. Other DIA analytical efforts during the mid-1980s centered on the attack on the Marine barracks in Lebanon, the Iran–Iraq War, the conflict in Afghanistan, the Soviet downing of Korean Air Lines Flight 007, the civil war in Chad, and unrest in the Philippines. Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger presented DIA with the Agency’s first Joint Meritorious Unit Award in 1986 for outstanding intelligence support over the previous year during a series of crises—the hijacking of TWA Flight 847 and the cruise ship Achille Lauro, unrest in the Philippines, and counter-terrorist operations against Libya.

Also at this time, the Agency concentrated on the rapidly shifting national security environment, characterized by key issues such as changes within the Soviet Union, counter-narcotics, war fighting capabilities and sustainability, and low-intensity conflict. DoD moved decisively to improve its automated data bases and apply additional resources to the monitoring of terrorist groups, illegal arms shipments, and narcotics trafficking. Arms control monitoring also increased the demand for intelligence support from DIA.

Designated a combat support agency under the Goldwater-Nicholas Defense Reorganization Act, DIA moved quickly to increase cooperation with the Unified & Specified Commands and to begin developing a body of joint intelligence doctrine. Intelligence support to U.S. allies in the Middle East intensified as the Iran–Iraq War spilled into the Persian Gulf. DIA provided significant intelligence support to Operation Earnest Will while closely monitoring incidents such as the Iraqi rocket attack on the USS Stark, the destruction of Iranian oil platforms, and Iranian attacks on Kuwaiti oil tankers. The “Toyota War” between Libya and Chad and the turmoil in Haiti added to DIA’s heavy production workload, as did unrest in other parts of Latin AmericaSomaliaEthiopiaBurma, Pakistan, and the Philippines.

Subsequently, the Agency provided threat data on “hot spots” throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, while assessing the impact of changes in the USSR, Eastern Europe, and, to a lesser degree, Asia. In addition, DIA supported decision makers with intelligence concerning the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, events surrounding the downing of several Libyan jets, the civil war in Liberia, and the investigation of the downing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Weapons acquisition issues, counter-narcotics, and counter-terrorism, likewise, remained high priority issues.

With the end of the Cold War, defense intelligence began a period of reevaluation following the fall of Communism in many of the East European countries, the reunification of Germany, and ongoing economic reforms in the region. During this phase, DIA emphasized improved management of intelligence production, DoD-wide, as resource reductions once again threatened to negatively impact Agency objectives and manpower. Organizationally, DIA adopted the concept of functional management to better address unified & specified command intelligence issues.

In response to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in August 1990, DIA set up an extensive, 24-hour, crisis management cell designed to tailor national-level intelligence support to the coalition forces assembled to expel Iraq from Kuwait. By the time Operation Desert Storm began, some 2,000 Agency personnel were involved in the intelligence support effort. Most of them associated in some way with the national-level Joint Intelligence Center (JIC), which DIA established in The Pentagon to integrate the intelligence being produced throughout the Community. DIA sent more than 100 employees into the Kuwaiti Theater of Operations to provide intelligence support. This DIA-led effort remains one of the greatest examples of intelligence support to operational forces in modern times.

The Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center (AFMIC), and the Missile and Space Intelligence Center (MSIC), associated with the Army for over 20 and 50 years respectively, became part of DIA in January 1992. This was part of the continuing effort to consolidate intelligence production and make it more efficient.

Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, DIA has been active in nuclear proliferation intelligence collection and analysis with particular interests in North Korea and Iran as well as counter-terrorism. DIA was also involved with the intelligence build-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and was a subject in the Senate Report of Pre-war Intelligence on Iraq. The Defense Intelligence Agency has conflicted with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in collection and analysis on the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and has often represented the Pentagon in the CIA-DoD intelligence rivalry due to DIA’s alleged clandestine HUMINT collection and often overlapping analysis products. Operational military intelligence has also been a focus, particularly in Iraq with insurgency threats and asymmetric warfare. The DIA is responsible for assessing the current and projected national security threats to the United States as well as presenting these assessments to the Senate Armed Services Committee. The DIA still actively maintains its responsibility for conventional strategic and operational military intelligence.

[edit] Organization

DIA is led by a Director, typically a three-star military officer. The current director is Lieutenant General Ronald Burgess, USA, who assumed command in March 2009. Letitia Long was appointed deputy director in May 2006, and Phillip R. Roberts has served as chief of staff since March 2007.

Lieutenant General Ronald Burgess, USA; 17th Director of DIA

DIA is organized into these primary operational directorates:

Directorate for Human Intelligence (DH): This directorate manages DIA’s and the DoD’s human source intelligence collection, including the Defense Attache System, and is the primary interface between the Department of Defense and the National Clandestine Service. DH conducts worldwide strategic HUMINT collection operations in support of DoD, national intelligence requirements, and military operations. It deploys teams of linguists, field analysts, case officers, interrogation experts, technical specialists, and special forces. DH also absorbed the personnel and capabilities of the Counterintelligence Field Activity in 2008.

Directorate for Information Management and Chief Information Officer (DS): This directorate provides a secure, standardized and integrated global Information Technology enterprise that is continuously improved and maintained in response to intelligence customer needs and enables collaborative discovery, synthesis, and delivery of critical intelligence to warfighters, defense planners, national-security policy makers, and international partners.

Directorate for MASINT and Technical Collection (DT): Collects Measurement and Signature Intelligence which is technical intelligence that – when collected, processed, and analyzed by dedicated MASINT systems – results in intelligence that detects, tracks, identifies, or describes the signatures (distinctive characteristics) of fixed or dynamic target sources. This often includes radar intelligence, acoustic intelligence, nuclear intelligence, and chemical and biological intelligence. DIA is the central agency for MASINT collection within the US Intelligence Community.

Directorate for Analysis (DI): Analyzes and disseminates finalized intelligence products for the DIA from all sources as well as from partnerIntelligence Community agencies. Analysts focus on the military issues that may arise from political or economic events in foreign countries and also analyze foreign military capabilities, transportation systems,weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), terrorism, and missile systems and contribute to National Intelligence Estimates and to the President’s Daily Brief. The Directorate of Analysis also manages the National Center for Medical Intelligence, the Missile and Space Intelligence Center, and the Joint Intelligence Task Force for Combating Terrorism. Analysts serve DIA in all of the agency’s facilities as well as in the field.

Directorate for Intelligence Joint Staff (J2): Advises and supports the Joint Chiefs of Staff with foreign military intelligence for defense policy and war planning.

Defense Intelligence Operations Coordination Center (DJ): Fuses tactical, operational, and strategic intelligence assets and serves as the center for coordination of these assets in response to combatant command requirements. The DIOCC is closely integrated with the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance to provide a unified Department of Defense intelligence command center to combine operations with intelligence and advise the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, warfighters, and the DNI’s National Intelligence Coordination Center.

DIA also runs the National Defense Intelligence College.

Steve in Vista’s Web Log

“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”

– Benjamin Disraeli

Saddam Hussein or his double was lynched [ unlawfully hanged ] very close to Christmas see:

What happened to Saddam Hussein or his double was a product of Illuminati Vaticanista Judaist dialectic via the sister organizations of the KGB and CIA. These transnational secret covert organizations shadowed him. He actually was purported to have believed in himself and the country he represented, but he ruled with terror and American covert support.

The Ba’ath Party that put Saddam in power in the 1960’s picked him on purpose. Saddam was theirs. Later the CIA picked up on, with the KGB, to try and groom the Ba’ath Party and Saddam as a “Pan Arab Socialist (Communist) party and leader.” Instead, he was a Pan Arab non-Marxist Socialist. They wanted him to think he was a friend of the U.S. Anyone befriended by a country that has super-mephistopheles Neo Fascist ZioNazi Heinz Kissinger as the power behind the throne will be slaughtered when the Purim worshipping Illuminati Judaists decree it (don’t confuse the term Judaists with simple Jewish folks). They did decree it. It took the falsehood of 911 and the combined might that was brought against Iraq and the totally evil lynching of ‘Saddam’ to do it. Saddam or his double purportedly  died a martyr to the cause of Iraq, witnessing to God and Iraq and Palestine to the last. Bush will be remembered as the murderous tyrant he is.

Just as the Mapai and Mapam parties in Occupied Palestine were both Judaist Zionist Communist knock offs of one another in the beginning of the abomination known as modern Yisrael, so too are the Illuminati Judaist Zionist controlled shadow governments in Russia and the U.S. Their computers and that of Red China have been linked ever since the Cuban Missile Crisis, so we don’t actually ever get into WWIII, not until the serpent of the New World Order figureheaded by greater ZioNazty Judaist Yisrael wills it.

The picking of Christmas as the time of ‘ Saddam’s ‘ murder has a multi layered meaning:

1) Against Christ = Antichrist, meaning Illuminati Vaticanista Judaist Yisrael is that.

2) Lurianic Cabalistic en sof, Satanic hermeticism, is shown here. In other words, when the Devil’s devotees (the Illuminati Vaticanista Talmudic Judaists) move, they claim it is God’s will and use that claim as a cover, especially with Christian Zionists (who are not Christians). It is not God’s will. They in fact, do what Our Lord Jesus Christ said they do:

Jn:8:44:

44 You are of your father the devil: and the desires of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning: and he stood not in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. (DRV)

3) It is Diabolic mockery of Christ and Christians and Muslims. In particular it is a sneer concerning the massive murdering of Christians and Muslims. 120 million under Communist Zionist controlled Lenin-Stalin and Socialist Nazi Hitler and then in Palestine the 63 year genocide there and then over 1 million (6.3 million victims overall) in Iraq. It is also a tip of their black hat as to their future plans for all Christians and Muslims and all men of good will on earth.

By the way, the real Satanic verses are the Ecumenical Synchretism of the Vaticanistas and the Talmud of the Judaists.

Lyndon B.  Johnson and George Bush Sr. and Ben Gurion had President John F. Kennedy assassinated because Kennedy was a Pan Arabist and wanted Israel stringently controlled and if they got out of control he had already had military plans drawn up to destroy Israel; Kennedy also stood in the way of Israel ever getting Nuclear Weapons. Kennedy also wanted to retrieve the United States from the power of the PRIVATE Federal Reserve. Kennedy also stood against the Vietnam War.  For all of these reasons, Johnson and Bush and Ben Gurion ordered the CIA and Mossad to assassinate President John F. Kennedy. Which the Mossad, with the help of Meyer Lansky (Judaist Mob Boss of Murder Incorporated) and Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson and George Bush Senior and the CIA, did in 1963.

President John F. Kennedy was against involving the U.S. in the war in Vietnam, he knew what it would lead to – toppling Democratic rule and paving the way for the Communists to take over.

Ho Chi Minh was a puppet of Mao Tse Tung. Ho was responsible for murdering 5% of the entire population of Vietnam AFTER the United States left. He did it on purpose to steal their lands from them. Viet Communists still brag about this today. The people Ho murdered were innocent people – the only reason they were killed was to take their lands; it was called an ‘anti-Capitalist necessity’ by the murdering bastard Communists. Today Iraq is being murdered and some people claiming to represent the Iraqis are actually siding with Communists, who if they had the chance, would kill far more Iraqis. My Iraqi friend, nearly 20 years ago, told me the U.S. should stay out of Iraq and let Iraqis handle Iraq. He was absolutely right. The only way to make it worse would be if the Communists got in. Get the U.S. out and KEEP both of them, the U.S. and the Communists out. Give Iraq back to the only people it belongs to: THE IRAQIS.

Three martyrs, who each were anti-Zionist, were John F. Kennedy and Yasser Arafat and Saddam Hussein or his double.

The exact crux of the whole matter is the criminal invasion and destruction of the Holy Land by the Illuminist Vaticanista Zionist entity. Before they came to Palestine they, the Communist Zionist Kahal who comprised the ruling class of the Russian Communists, were the plotters and saboteurs that destroyed the Russian Nation and the Czar and the Russian Orthodox Church. That is why the “formerly soviet countries” rank the worst in treatment of Christians.

Via the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the influence of the Zionist neo-Fascists for several decades, the Zionist-Communists have destroyed the Constitutional United States Republic.

The Houses of the Dragon are what promoted the Roman aligned religion of Saturn, read Satan, in Europe. These were the houses of nobility in Medieval Europe that continued the secret power of the dragon, that serpent of old (Revelation 20, verse 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. [a thousand years is not literal]) This was the same Satan worship that was part and parcel of the Ancient Cretan Double Eagles of the Mediterranean, embedded in the ancient Graeco-Egyptian religion from 3,500 years ago to the present. That, in turn was based on the Mesopotamian religion of Ur and Babel and Nimrud in Chaldaea of Mesopotamia, the land of Shinar, from twenty five centuries before that, in other words 6,000 years ago. The Haburah of the Babylonian Jews is a recent version of this, which is only 2,500 years old. The Haburah is the basis for Zionism and the Judaist form of Freemasonry (which is the arm of Zionist Talmudic Judaism into Gentile religion and government).

The Political Zionist  Talmudic Judaists are used and controlled by the Illuminati, both are utterly evil.

The houses of the Dragon are the European controlling nobility of the Illuminati. Core of which are the Black Nobility of the Guelph. The Illluminati are throughout all of Eurasia. The arms of the Illuminati to pollute all other religions and political bodies are Freemasonry and Zionism. Many Rabbis have stood against Zionism in the past. Many Christian pronouncements have condemned Freemasonry for a very long time.

The ancient Mesopotamian Satanism is the ancient religion of Gnosticism which opposed the Old Testament Patriarchs and Prophets and the Church. This ancient religion of Gnosticism is that which seeks to pervert Islam as well. Some of the current forms of this Gnosticism are Communism, Zionism, Christian Zionism, Vatican Ecumenism and Evolution.

The Habara is a small cultic sect of Jews during the Babylonian exile (6th century B.C. – aproximately 2,500+) years ago. They rearranged certain belief systems they encountered and made up a religion out of it. At the core of what they invented is their own racist self worship.

The Habara invented the Mishnah or “oral teachings” that Jesus Christ condemned repeatedly and totally. During the time of the Rabbinic Palestinian academies in the first and second centuries A.D., the Zionist Rabbinic Synagogue began the composition of the Gemara. When that was combined with the Mishnah it became the Talmud. The companion to that is the Zohar. The Zohar is a book of sorcery. Both utterly blaspheme God and His Christ. There have been several Jew false Messiahs, since the true Messiah, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ walked the earth. And he did walk the earth. He also walked on water and raised the dead and, as the Noble Qu’ran says, God made him to die but raised him up and he lives and he ascended into heaven and at the Sayyidah, his Parousia – his second coming, he will raise and judge all men.

The false Messiahs that have come include Bar Kochba in the second century A.D., Sabatai Zvi in the 17th century A.D. and Theodore Herzl in the 19th century A.D. All three were Jews. All three were imbued with the Pharisaism of the Habara and the Talmudic teachings of the Mishnah, Gemara and Zohar – all three of which have their roots in the Harbara’s original blasphemous, racist, self worshipping religion of the Jews who apostasized from the true God (as opposed to those who remained true to God). Today these are the Zionist Talmudists and Herzl is the Antichrist that used this blasphemous system to create political Zionism.

Political Zionism has as its core Lurianic (from Ari Luria) Caballistic Talmudism, which is the mainstay of the Likkud’s “religion” of “Israel’s” genocide and pillage against the Palestinians and, by the proxy of the United States and Iran, against Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan. The gentile arm of all of this is the Freemasonic Illuminati who today own the Banks and the Vatican and Washington D.C. amongst other groups and people. The Kahal is the progenitor of Marxist-Leninist-Stalinist-Maoist Communism and its Gramscian-Gorbachevian revitalized 4th International and their 5th International as well. The Kahal in the tribalist gang sense is the Judaists’ older organized form of Zionism and is responsible for hundreds of millions of dead gentiles due to Judaist organized owned and operated genocides committed against the gentiles.

Today, the Judaist wanton murdering of vast numbers of peoples by the Zionists and their puppet American War Machine is taking place against Palestine and Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Communism and Nazism are both totalitarian and both Socialist inventions, and both are opposed to Islam and Arab civilization.

Socialism is racist. Communism is racist. Nazism is racist. All three are inventions of Judaists. Marx, Bakunin, Herzl, Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin etc. are the Jews in name and lineage, but not Old Testament belief, behind Communism. Herzl is one of the main founding fathers of Zionism. Herzl is also one the main founders of German Socialism, out of which sprang National Socialism which is Nazism. Socialists are Communists and Communists are Socialists. All three of these hate the true God. Both Muslims and Christians worship the true God same as Old Testament Jews did. This secular socialist nonsense is the complete domain and developement of an Anti-God Judaist dialectic which was used to disrupt European society and furnish the means to invade the Holy Land and brutally and savagely oppress the Palestinians. Socialism will never be anything more than an instrument of oppression by Illuminati Vaticanista Judaists.

This is the TRIAD – The United States of America and Russia and Red China

Just as the Mapai and Mapam parties in Occupied Palestine were both Judaist Zionist Communist knock offs of one another in the beginning of the abomination known as modern Yisrael, so too are the Illuminati Freemasonic Judaist Zionist controlled shadow governments in Russia and the U.S. Their computers and that of Red China have been linked ever since the Cuban Missile Crisis, so we don’t actually ever get into WWIII, not until the serpent of the New World Order figureheaded by greater ZioNazty Yisrael wills it.

Iraq’s part in this –

The below links show where Saddam Hussein was taken – to Russia – and his generals and families to the United States of America. All of the WMD supplied to Iraq by the TRIAD? That went to Iran and Syria and Lebanon. Read the rest below after reading the link above.

Know this! It is all part of the New World Order plan, based in the European Union with the TRIAD as manipulated outliers to create a false World War III, occurring right now, to enslave the world with a false peace to come in the future and rule from a falsely united Jerusalem as head ensconced upon the European Beast.

A Saddam is dead – executed. But who was this Saddam? A look-alike or was it the real Saddam? Was Saddam, the master of all deception that stupid to hang around in Iraq after the invasion?

Some international think tank believes the real Saddam was smuggled out of Iraq by the Russian envoy from Iraq to Syria and then to Russia. Americans did shoot at that convoy, injure many – perhaps even the real Saddam but could not catch him.

Some believe the real Saddam is in Russia. That was perhaps the reason the Iraq fell so fast. The Kurds got hold of the Saddam look-alike that was roaming the Iraq with some money like the vagabond of Iraq. They eventually handed this man over to the Americans.

The biggest question is – Saddam really dead? It is up to the America to prove that the man executed was the real Saddam. Common sense says either Saddam was stupid to hang around in Iraq to get killed or he just took off way before the invasion handing the power to many look-alikes he had or he was really smuggled out of Iraq by the Russians during the invasion.

Some point to the DNA and dental records. These are not conclusive evidences. No one knows how it can ever be proved where real Saddam is today – dead or alive!

Intelligence about Saddam behind Russian-US row over Russians’ safety in Baghdad
Source: Channel One TV, Moscow, in Russian 2000 gmt 14 Jul 03

[Presenter Andrey Baturin] A noisy political row has broken out between Moscow and Washington at the weekend. US ambassador in Russia Alexander Verhsbow made several statements, provoking outrage in the Russian Foreign Ministry, which described these statements as inappropriate. The head of the US diplomatic mission said that Russia could have been helpful, rendering assistance by providing intelligence information about the hiding place of Saddam Husayn, his sons and supporters.

In other words, he suggested that Moscow knows where the former dictator is hiding but does not wish to share its information with the US. That is how the US ambassador’s statements can be interpreted. His was almost an accusation: after all, Russia and USA had agreed a long time ago about an exchange of intelligence. And all of a sudden, lo and behold: such a disagreement. Of course, Saddam has many friends in Russia. But that does not mean that Moscow would have taken steps to hide him. Besides, Vershbow warned that the USA did not consider the Russian embassy in Iraq as a diplomatic mission and therefore assumed no responsibility for the safety of its staff. In reply, Moscow reminded

Washington of an example from recent history, when the world community had condemned Iraq’s own attempts during its invasion of Kuwait to shut down missions as well as to deprive their staff of immunity and privileges.

Many questions arise in connection with this issue, above all why precisely at this moment in time, the Americans have decided to refuse the Russian

embassy protection. What has this to do with? We shall discuss these issues with our night-time experts. We have in our studio deputy chairman of the Duma security committee, former FSB director Nikolay [Dmitriyevich] Kovalev. We have also on the line a leading US political scientist in Washington, Ariel Cohen, who is an analyst in the Heritage foundation. Hallo, Mr Cohen.

But before we have our discussion, here is a brief chronology of events surrounding the Russian embassy in Baghdad. Roman Babayan is here with the details.

[Correspondent] The Russian embassy in Baghdad is continuing its work in its usual mode. That was the frequent statement of the Russian Foreign Ministry right before and during the US operation against Iraq. Even a few days prior to the first missile strikes against Baghdad, Russian ambassador Vladimir Titorenko had officially warned that in any event, regardless of how things would develop, Russian diplomats would continue work in Baghdad. True, the ambassador made the reservation that the strength of the diplomatic mission was likely to be reduced, and in the event of a real threat, the possibility of full evacuation from the country will be examined. Titorenko also stated that the embassy had prepared and confirmed a plan for evacuation, under which diplomats would be leaving Iraq via the Iranian border, which is only 220 km from Baghdad. The ambassador said that was the closest and safest route. In the meantime, in the middle of March, the number of embassy of staff was reduced. [Passage omitted: details of departure] By the beginning of the US operation against Iraq, only 26 people, including the ambassador, had continued work. [Passage omitted: more details]. It is noteworthy that at that time the Russian embassy was guarded as a rule by three to five Iraqi soldiers armed with Kalashnikov rifles. [Passage omitted: more details and reiteration] On 6 April, Titorenko was instructed by Moscow to evacuate the remaining staff of the diplomatic mission. Only 12 people remained at the embassy and armed guards. Later 11 embassy staff, the ambassador and the journalists left the country, too. [Passage omitted: known details] The convoy came under attack, with five diplomats having been wounded. One was operated on in Al-Fallujah. A few days later the ambassador helped the wounded one on his way and returned to Baghdad. [Passage omitted]

At present, the Russian embassy continues its work but it is now being protected not by the Iraqi soldiers but by several armoured vehicles of the US army. However, after the statement by Alexander Vershbow, ambassador in Moscow, the post will be removed in the next few days.

[Passage omitted: presenter Cohen comments, making conciliatory utterances]

[Presenter to Kovalev] What do you think if they remove the US posts near the Russian embassy, can the embassy protect itself?

[Kovalev] It will not be able to fully protect itself. I think the situation will lead to a very serious row for the Americans. After Vershbow’s statement about the removal of the guards, if an attack is carried out, I think the row will reach international proportions. Because Russia perceives such statements by the US ambassador as a veiled threat: unless you behave yourselves we

shall not take care of your security, as it were. [Passage omitted: to the same effect]

[Presenter] Now, let us go back to the utterances by the US ambassador, namely, in respect of Russia’s help to find Saddam Husayn. The Americans have not been able to find the former dictator for over three months, who is said to be still in Baghdad. [Passage omitted: video report on US search for Saddam and Cohen’s side of the story] [to Kovalev] Nikolay Dmitriyevich. How beneficial it is for Russia to hide information about Saddam’s hiding place.

[Kovalev] As a matter of fact, this is completely impossible. It is clear that in our situation, in our life today, everything secret can quickly become obvious. So, if such information exists, it will inevitably see the light of day. That is for one thing. If Russia had had such information, it would have immediately been delivered to the USA. Rest assured. There is no doubt about that. [Passage omitted: Cohen says there will be no row]

Russia tied to Iraq’s missing arms

By                                   12:26 a.m., Thursday, October 28, 2004

Russian special forces troops moved many of Saddam Hussein’s weapons and related goods out of Iraq and into Syria in the weeks before the March 2003 U.S. military operation, The Washington Times has learned.

John A. Shaw, the deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, said in an interview that he believes the Russian troops, working with Iraqi intelligence, “almost certainly” removed the high-explosive material that went missing from the Al-Qaqaa facility, south of Baghdad.

“The Russians brought in, just before the war got started, a whole series of military units,” Mr. Shaw said. “Their main job was to shred all evidence of any of the contractual arrangements they had with the Iraqis. The others were transportation units.”

Mr. Shaw, who was in charge of cataloging the tons of conventional arms provided to Iraq by foreign suppliers, said he recently obtained reliable information on the arms-dispersal program from two European intelligence services that have detailed knowledge of the Russian-Iraqi weapons collaboration.

Most of Saddam’s most powerful arms were systematically separated from other arms like mortars, bombs and rockets, and sent to Syria and Lebanon, and possibly to Iran, he said.

The Russian involvement in helping disperse Saddam’s weapons, including some 380 tons of RDX and HMX, is still being investigated, Mr. Shaw said.

The RDX and HMX, which are used to manufacture high-explosive and nuclear weapons, are probably of Russian origin, he said.

Pentagon spokesman Larry DiRita could not be reached for comment.

The disappearance of the material was reported in a letter Oct. 10 from the Iraqi government to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Disclosure of the missing explosives Monday in a New York Times story was used by the Democratic presidential campaign of Sen. John Kerry, who accused the Bush administration of failing to secure the material.

Al-Qaqaa, a known Iraqi weapons site, was monitored closely, Mr. Shaw said.

“That was such a pivotal location, Number 1, that the mere fact of [special explosives] disappearing was impossible,” Mr. Shaw said. “And Number 2, if the stuff disappeared, it had to have gone before we got there.”

The Pentagon disclosed yesterday that the Al-Qaqaa facility was defended by Fedayeen Saddam, Special Republican Guard and other Iraqi military units during the conflict. U.S. forces defeated the defenders around April 3 and found the gates to the facility open, the Pentagon said in a statement yesterday.

A military unit in charge of searching for weapons, the Army’s 75th Exploitation Task Force, then inspected Al-Qaqaa on May 8, May 11 and May 27, 2003, and found no high explosives that had been monitored in the past by the IAEA.

The Pentagon said there was no evidence of large-scale movement of explosives from the facility after April 6.

“The movement of 377 tons of heavy ordnance would have required dozens of heavy trucks and equipment moving along the same roadways as U.S. combat divisions occupied continually for weeks prior to and subsequent to the 3rd Infantry Division’s arrival at the facility,” the statement said.

The statement also said that the material may have been removed from the site by Saddam’s regime.

According to the Pentagon, U.N. arms inspectors sealed the explosives at Al-Qaqaa in January 2003 and revisited the site in March and noted that the seals were not broken.

It is not known whether the inspectors saw the explosives in March. The U.N. team left the country before the U.S.-led invasion began March 20, 2003.

A second defense official said documents on the Russian support to Iraq reveal that Saddam’s government paid the Kremlin for the special forces to provide security for Iraq’s Russian arms and to conduct counterintelligence activities designed to prevent U.S. and Western intelligence services from learning about the arms pipeline through Syria.

The Russian arms-removal program was initiated after Yevgeny Primakov, the former Russian intelligence chief, could not persuade Saddam to give in to U.S. and Western demands, this official said.

A small portion of Iraq’s 650,000 tons to 1 million tons of conventional arms that were found after the war were looted after the U.S.-led invasion, Mr. Shaw said. Russia was Iraq’s largest foreign supplier of weaponry, he said.

However, the most important and useful arms and explosives appear to have been separated and moved out as part of carefully designed program. “The organized effort was done in advance of the conflict,” Mr. Shaw said.

The Russian forces were tasked with moving special arms out of the country.

Mr. Shaw said foreign intelligence officials believe the Russians worked with Saddam’s Mukhabarat intelligence service to separate out special weapons, including high explosives and other arms and related technology, from standard conventional arms spread out in some 200 arms depots.

The Russian weapons were then sent out of the country to Syria, and possibly Lebanon in Russian trucks, Mr. Shaw said.

Mr. Shaw said he believes that the withdrawal of Russian-made weapons and explosives from Iraq was part of plan by Saddam to set up a “redoubt” in Syria that could be used as a base for launching pro-Saddam insurgency operations in Iraq.

The Russian units were dispatched beginning in January 2003 and by March had destroyed hundreds of pages of documents on Russian arms supplies to Iraq while dispersing arms to Syria, the second official said.

Besides their own weapons, the Russians were supplying Saddam with arms made in Ukraine, Belarus, Bulgaria and other Eastern European nations, he said.

“Whatever was not buried was put on lorries and sent to the Syrian border,” the defense official said.

Documents reviewed by the official included itineraries of military units involved in the truck shipments to Syria. The materials outlined in the documents included missile components, MiG jet parts, tank parts and chemicals used to make chemical weapons, the official said.

The director of the Iraqi government front company known as the Al Bashair Trading Co. fled to Syria, where he is in charge of monitoring arms holdings and funding Iraqi insurgent activities, the official said.

Also, an Arabic-language report obtained by U.S. intelligence disclosed the extent of Russian armaments. The 26-page report was written by Abdul Tawab Mullah al Huwaysh, Saddam’s minister of military industrialization, who was captured by U.S. forces May 2, 2003.

The Russian “spetsnaz” or special-operations forces were under the GRU military intelligence service and organized large commercial truck convoys for the weapons removal, the official said.

Regarding the explosives, the new Iraqi government reported that 194.7 metric tons of HMX, or high-melting-point explosive, and 141.2 metric tons of RDX, or rapid-detonation explosive, and 5.8 metric tons of PETN, or pentaerythritol tetranitrate, were missing.

The material is used in nuclear weapons and also in making military “plastic” high explosive.

Defense officials said the Russians can provide information on what happened to the Iraqi weapons and explosives that were transported out of the country. Officials believe the Russians also can explain what happened to Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction programs.
