A Russian fighter aircraft has caused a major alert over the skies of Europe as tension mounts in the so-called radar wars.
Russian Radar Plot
In a statement, President Putin said that the plane was flying in international airspace looking for Turkey but got lost over the Bay of Biscay.
NATO radar plot
NATO has replied with it’s own version in which their track definitely shows the pilot making defensive manoeuvres all over Europe.
Belgian Radar Plot
To counter this, Belgian officials say the plane stayed within international airspace which is now defined as being three and a half leagues inside geographical borders and never once touched Belgian airspace.
To date, it has been confirmed that newspaper sales have not suffered and that no news presenters have lost their jobs.
Prime Minister Cameron has pledged to ask the Daily Mail and Sun exactly what he should say next.
Beryl, of Saffron Walden (42) said,
I was checking the gutters for drips and saw a strange plane in the sky which looked at me in a funny way. I was glad to get back inside. You can’t be too careful in this day and age what with them radar tracks and all.
Far from being chemtrail pollution, the Boeing 757 is landing at Gatwick on a typically humid British day. Morris has captured the plane in low sun and emphasised the colours produced in the air from the London vehicle pollution for effect, IMHO.
Morris’s page 2 has some fantastic images, none of which are chemtrail proof, but could of course be used as such – he actually has hundreds of images. A busy, skilled, dawn and dusk photographer.
WorldTruth TV seems more like place to generate visits to further their financial gains from advertising, since the site is plastered with adverts, many, what I’d call very dubious in nature, gambling and big tit adverts for instance. It is typical of the genre, much like the Daily mail’s website.
Chemtrail Image Search
Doing a Google image search shows hundreds of so-called chemtrail images as some sort of proof. Similarly as a standard page search.
But I’m an old guy now and I’ve seen a lot of sky.
I’m also a scientist with a physics and polictical background. I understand fears and have witnessed government corruption and wheeler-dealing for decades now.
Despite that, I cannot see how chemtrailing is at all cost-effective and no clear reason for doing it has ever been eschewed. It is all, guesswork.
The atmospheric proof is nothing. I’ve seen many, many weird skies ever since I was very young and I have grown up and witnessed a phenomenal growth in:
motor vehicle usage,
rain forest destruction,
changing agricultural methods
…..on a global scale.
All of these influence the atmosphere and its water-particulate balance with water in each of its triple states. See this link on the triple point of water. Both water and carbon dioxide (both highly important greenhouse gases) have unusual triple points and triple states of matter.
The state of the atmosphere can produce very weird effects, especially when combined with the global air corridors that planes must use, many criss-crossing the jet-streams several times. Undoubtedly, high altitude cirrus has increased and would be expected to increase from increased jet travel, along with the natural aerosol injections from volcanoes and forest fires. This cirrus is one of the components that naturally modifies global climate. So stop air travel? Yeah, that’ll happen.
If you cannot understand triple points then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft.
I you cannot understand that an aircraft flies by the vacuum sucking it into the sky then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft.
If you cannot understand how photographers can use light and technology to take and process images then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft. Check out Steve Morris’s photos for more “examples” of chemtrail…. http://www.airteamimages.com/steve-morris_pid1507.html – he has hundreds! LOL.
It’s not my fault that you are allowing yourself to be deceived by the chemtrail theory if you cannot understand the above.
What we need is proof. If you understand aircraft flight, photography and physics, then please supply some proof of chemtrails, the reasons for doing it and how and why any government in collusion with others would do such a thing.
For now, Assange will have to stay in the Embassy. Ecuador has asked for assurances about his safe passage, but as it stands, Hague and Cameron look the foolish chumps for what they are and won’t back down.
My guesses, are:
That Assange will have a “mysterious” accident or similar and the nasty people in the world will breathe a sigh of relief – the embassy is no doubt bugged and all communications in and out religiously monitored. His undetected escape looks unlikely. Food, drink or water could be tampered with; holes could be drilled, hypodermics, germs or gas through the walls – who knows? Like a Sherlock Holmes/locked room mystery, try the poisoned ice dart through the keyhole? See http://wramsite.com/forum/topics/breitbart-murder-by-heart-attack-the-cost-of-exposing-our-corrupt and http://youtu.be/tzIw44w00ow CIA Whistleblower talks about Heart Attack gun
Assange will have to wait for a change in UK government. Even so,
should he get a plane to Ecuador it can be shot down (remember the start of the Rwandangenocide?).
Should he get a boat, it can “disappear” in a storm…
Should he arrive safely he can be either murdered in secret or by a public presidential decree – remember Trotsky in Mexico, Allende in Chile, Che Guevara in Bolivia, Bin Laden in Pakistan, Rudolf Diesel on the English Channel?
At low level of current probability, those in charge of the USA and UK must fundamentally change their attitude towards freedom of information and accountability in public office.
The emails etc. which are at the real centre of Assange’s troubles show elected and non-elected officials behaving with scant regard to either their own laws, international laws or natural law.
It is for them to recognise this which will allow Assange back into normal society and thus face the law courts in Sweden.
As I said, a very, very low probability in the current climate since those in power, those in the emails, those on the tapes, those on the videos (like the machine gunning of innocent civilians), all of those need to recognise their culpability at worse, or at least that they’ve been shown to have acted like idiots and now have egg on their face.
Reminder: The Initial Swedish Set-up
Forgetting the secret US indictment from over a year ago revealed in the Stratfor secrecy emails, Sweden issued an arrest warrant, then dropped it, then “sort-of” reopened the investigation before barring Assange from Sweden? I know. You work it out. It’s all detailed succinctly in this Telegraph page from June 2012.
Bizarrely though, this Foxnews rant/explanation from Glenn Beck (both not noted for their liberal stance…!) is even better at describing the events for which Assange was arrest warranted with in Sweden. Pay close attention and you’ll see how what we are now being fed by Hague and the Obama administration is seriously at odds with this very precise investigation and summary made soon after the events in question… http://youtu.be/npBvNJl6X9w
Ecuador’s Key Points
An English translation of the eleven key points, derived from The Dissenter, is here:
Julian Assange is an award-winning communications professional internationally for his struggle for freedom of expression, press freedom and human rights in general;
That Mr. Assange shared with the global audience was privileged documentary information generated by various sources, and affected employees, countries and organizations;
That there is strong evidence of retaliation by the country or countries that produced the information disclosed by Mr. Assange, retaliation that may endanger their safety, integrity, and even his life;
That, despite diplomatic efforts by Ecuador, countries which have required adequate safeguards to protect the safety and life of Mr. Assange, have refused to facilitate them;
That is certain Ecuadorian authorities that it is possible the extradition of Mr. Assange to a third country outside the European Union without proper guarantees for their safety and personal integrity;
That legal evidence clearly shows that, given an extradition to the United States of America, Mr. Assange would not have a fair trial, could be tried by special courts or military, and it is unlikely that is applied to cruel and degrading , and was sentenced to life imprisonment or capital punishment, which would not respect their human rights;
That while Mr. Assange must answer for the investigation in Sweden, Ecuador is aware that the Swedish prosecutor has had a contradictory attitude that prevented Mr. Assange the full exercise of the legitimate right of defence;
Ecuador is convinced that they have undermined the procedural rights of Mr. Assange during the investigation;
Ecuador has found that Mr. Assange is without protection and assistance to be received from the State which is a citizen;
That, following several public statements and diplomatic communications by officials from Britain, Sweden and USA, it is inferred that these governments would not respect the conventions and treaties, and give priority to domestic law school hierarchy, in violation of rules express universal application and,
That, if Mr. Assange is reduced to custody in Sweden (as is customary in this country), would start a chain of events that would prevent the further protective measures taken to avoid possible extradition to a third country.
What’s clear is that Ecuador is actually in a win-win situation here.

They recognised the sabre rattling of William Hague and David Cameron for what it is – that the UK cannot pick and choose which international treaties to abide by without acquiring the severest opprobrium of its own people and parliament.
Of course, there’s the “sticks and stones” argument which the government may ignore by barging in, armed to the teeth, anyway, but also the long-lasting risks to the whole British diplomatic force who will be placed in the severest of danger. This latter they cannot ignore.
How can the UK pontificate on others when behaving worse than a bull in a china shop?
Ecuador has its own internal problems and this crisis will strengthen the hand of its President Correa, but also its standing in the eyes of all the little countries of the world, especially those in South America, historically in the thrall of US might.
They point out that Assange is only wanted for questioning in Sweden and that Sweden has refused to question Assange on Ecuadorian “land”, the embassy.
They point out the red herring issue of Sweden in its entirety, in that several public and private threats have been made or allured to against Assange by the governments of Sweden, USA, UK and that his own country hasn’t offered any protection (of course, we all know that the Aussie government is following the UK & USA like sheep).
So Assange is in dire and immediate threat of kidnap, torture, summary trial by a military court, execution or imprisonment in inhumane conditions. We all know the USA is guilty of this having been caught red handed several times as has the UK in its collusion.
So the UK & USA are not havens of justice, guardians of the rights of Man, protectors from dictatorships nor international peacemakers.
Their actions from Vietnam through to Chile, from Egypt through to Bahrain, from corrupt banking to multinational deforestation programs, from Stratfor and the secret surveillance society to drone bombings of civilians shows them to be pariah states on the same footing as Zimbabwe or North Korea, say.
Ecuador has rightly recognised all of this, and more.
As part of their statement, they stood on the following points (derived from Google translate!):
a) The asylum, in all its forms, is a fundamental human right which creates obligations erga omnes, that is, “for all” states.
b) The diplomatic asylum, shelter (or territorial asylum), and the right not to be extradited, expelled, delivered or transferred, human rights are comparable, since they are based on the same principles of human protection: no return and no discrimination without any adverse distinction based on race, colour, sex, language, religion or belief, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status, or any other similar criteria.
c) All these forms of protection are governed by the principles pro person (i.e., more favourable to the individual), equality, universality, indivisibility, interrelatedness and interdependence.
d) The protection occurs when the state of asylum, refugee or required, or the protecting power, consider the risk or the fear that the protected person may be a victim of political persecution or political offences against him.
e) The State granting asylum seekers qualify causes, and in case of extradition, assess evidence.
f) No matter which of its forms or forms are present, the seeker is always the same cause and the same legal order, ie, political persecution, which causes it lawful, and safeguard the life, personal safety and freedom of protected person, which is the lawful purpose.
g) The right to asylum is a fundamental human right, therefore, belongs to jus cogens, ie the system of mandatory rules of law recognized by the international community as a whole, do not support a contrary agreement, being null treaties and provisions of international law they oppose.
h) In cases not covered by the law in force, the human person remains under the protection of the principles of humanity and the dictates of public conscience, or are under the protection and authority of the principles of international law derived from established custom, from the principles of humanity and from the dictates of public conscience.
i) Lack of international agreement or domestic legislation of States can not legitimately claim to limit, impair or deny the right to asylum.
j) The rules and principles governing the rights to asylum, extradition no, no delivery, no expulsion and transfer are not converging, as far as is necessary to improve the protection and provide it with maximum efficiency. In this sense they are complementary international law of human rights, the right to asylum and refugee law, and humanitarian law.
k) The rights of protection of the human person are based on ethical principles and values universally accepted and therefore have a humanistic, social, solidarity, welfare, peaceful and humanitarian.
l) All States have the duty to promote the progressive development of international law of human rights through effective national and international action.
Here they kick down the quasi-judicious use by the UK of the 1987 Act regarding Embassies and the like in the UK.
They state the various rights of Man as defined in the United Nations and elsewhere (in case the UK has forgotten them!!!)
They point out the various ethical issues.
Ecuador has produced a clear and unambiguous statement, totally unlike the shadowy cloak and daggers stuff from Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
United pops up a lot in the state’s names. They’re united, but only united in shame and devilishness corruption. This is the reason for their stance – it’s nothing to do with national security and everything to do with covering their own backs.
The truth is really out now. Notably, bonkers Boris has been quiet on the issue so far – he never thought much of Cameron and I guess it’s even less now!
Declaración del Gobierno de la República del Ecuador sobre la solicitud de asilo de Julian Assange
Watch how they pick and choose which bits of ‘science’ to believe!
Abandoned for 100 Years
Last week, smiley Alan Johnson fell out with serious Professor Nutt because the professor said some factual scientific things, things proven by statistics and analysis to have an overwhelming degree of proof. This was that drinking alcohol and smoking is far more dangerous than cannabis and ecstasy pills. See dont-shoot-the-messenger-if-you-dont-like-the-message and associated links.
Now, this week, Ed Milliband has taken the opposite approach and said:
So, despite there being three major accidents involving nuclear power, he says it’s safe! In actual fact, he said this:
“I do understand the anxieties that there are because there have been concerns about nuclear power.” “I think it is right that we go ahead with this. It has a good safety record. There is no evidence that people’s fears about nuclear are grounded, in my view.”
The trouble with this, is that a nuclear accident isn’t the same as a car crash, it isn’t at all like a train crash or a plane crash. It actually isn’t anything like an earthquake or tsunami, natural hazards that many have to live with.
Hinkley Point Power Station
In a nutshell, if Hinkley Point Power Station down the road from me goes up in a similar fashion to Chernobyl, because of the prevailing wind, most of England will be uninhabitable and we’ll all have to go to Scotland!
The Three Close Shaves
In order, there was Windscale when I was a child and was exposed to Strontium in the milk which had to be chucked away for months. The records show that this was a really close shave for us in Britain and Scandinavia – only half an hour away from a worse-than-Chernobyl disaster!
Then we had Three-Mile Island, another skin of the teeth episode but this time by the Americans.
Then there was Chernobyl which has left a 100 mile square piece of Russia uninhabitable and left sheep inedible thousands of miles away in Britain for years. If the Chernobyl event had been here, as I say, all the Midlands would’ve needed evacuating. As it is, Russia is very, very big, and they’ve room to move….. We don’t. It’s a little island. Full of jobs-worth’s and idiots, by the sound of it.
Subway to Nowhere
Q. So which scientist is Milliband believing? Which scientist says it’s “safe”?
Q. What evidence is Milliband ignoring that leads him to think people’s fears are “ungrounded”, as he says?
A. The evidence of his head in the sand, that’s what!
In this case he is using the infrequent bad events and calling them safe because they don’t happen often. And because we’ve been very, very lucky; that’s all.
The stats show something different, because there are only about a couple of hundred nuclear plants across the globe! Three have gone up!!! For me, this is piss-poor odds and I don’t wish the lottery-like risks, especially when there are a host of other alternatives.
He’s a clever man, but that doesn’t mean he’s always correct.
In his same speech (on TV some years ago), he said that an incident killing about 1 million people every 100 years was almost inevitable, but comparing it to road transport, or to dying from an overheating world, or the natural cancers we’d get anyway, then many more would die in the same period….
That’s statistics and that’s a scientist speaking. It’s the balance of probabilities and the the certainty of proof expressed in numbers.
However, it does not make it right and it does not make it something to which we should aspire.
There has to be a better way – and there is. There are a pot of technologies available, especially when the economies of scale in mass manufacture are taken into account. I don’t mean battery cars, the biggest red herring ever. But there ARE a host of solutions and the biggest obstacles are:
Vested interests – oil companies and the politicians and businessmen that are attached.
Lack of belief – we people can do anything we set our minds to – even splitting the atom and making global war with it!
Stasis in Innovation – a host of tools are already available but people are scared and no-one wants to take the first step…
But look at it this way. If all houses and industrial premises are forced by law to be covered with low cost film photovoltaic cells, how much electricity will we have and how many people MIGHT get hurt if a roof collapses?
A. A lot of electric and not many people!
Surely, something like this is worth trying rather than putting a host of concrete death stars on our doorsteps?
CIA Guilty of Torture and Kidnap – Damages of 1.5 Million Euros
Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr was snatched from a street in Milan
Amazing news today. An Italian court has bravely taken on the leader of the Western World and convicted 22 CIA agents of kidnap and torture. (see CIA agents guilty of Italy kidnap).
The man on the left with the wacky beard and hat, was snatched from the street in Italy, flown to Egypt, and tortured.
America’s great liberal hope, President Obama, and his government, have expressed,
…”disappointment at the convictions”….
This is not surprising to me, given what I wrote here earlier in the year when I realised that after only 100 days in office, Obama thought torture was okay… (contrast this to the optimism shown here and here, for example. Sometimes speaking well just isn’t good enough, especially if your actions are in complete disregard of your own constitution.)
Absent From Trial
The CIA people (including high ranking colonels etc) were all tried in their absence – you see, Italy doesn’t kidnap people! (Interestingly, the CIA, as judge, jury and executioner have just bombed 2 ‘insurgents’ in Pakistan with a drone plane again – “It is not clear if there was any high-value target, We also do not know the identity of the militants” the CIA said; but Insurgents …were pulling bodies out of the rubble… Obama condones all this as drone flights and civilian deaths have wildly escalated under his rule.)
So while Italy is usually thought of as the laughing stock of Europe because of the uncountable number of elections it has and the current buffoon of an incumbent that they keep electing – it’s actually been very brave and done the right thing.
Will America do the same? Will it do the right thing? Will Obama strive to regain the high moral ground that he stood on to be elected and which he espoused so eloquently on Inauguration Day?
I doubt it very much. When 52% of USA citizens think torture is okay and Utah remains a cesspit of corruption and evil business practices, when most Americans don’t care a damn about rising sea levels – and the rest… ..and the rest!!
I doubt it very much indeed.
UK Caught With Pants Down and Hands on the Trigger
Our UK government isn’t any better having colluded in the kidnaps (called extraordinary renditions as a smokescreen to reality) and torture. Are they in Europe or out? Do they agree with “The Hague” or not? Have they signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or not?
Answers to these and other questions can be found in my earlier posts from this year. What a year!
Megrahi and Calley compared and contrasted (in this post, VP Clinton said it was a bad day for justice and law… I just say wah? I also remember the deep embarrassment during the US primaries which all Americans should have felt, but forgot, when she claimed to be bravely dodging bullets and plainly wasn’t when the video surfaced.)
Over the last couple of days the strangest thought has plagued me. Two simple ugly words have kept emerging, only for me to lock them out and ridicule them as bizarre. Simon’s dead. Just to write it down feels like … Continue reading →
If you ever needed confirmation that the UK is not run by a shadowy cabal of sinister plotters but a bunch of chinless fucking idiots then the upcoming Digital Economy Bill is a good place to start. As well as … Continue reading →
