Boris Johnson Snubbed Mitt Romney on ‘Are-You-Ready Comments’ stooopid. It Back Clashed Beautifully. More People Sympathy with Mitt Romney. As Lakers Coach Romney knew how to take Boris Downtown. Romney told Boris: Fuck the Olympic Gizmo. Are you ready to Harvest Gold. Kudos

Here is Emily Allen and Damien Gayle of Daily Mail report:

‘Are we ready? Yes we are!’ London Mayor Boris Johnson attacks U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney as he issues Olympics rallying cry to 60,000 at Hyde Park The Republican presidential candidate told American TV that it was hard to know ‘just how well it …will turn out’ Following the controversy he seemed to change his tune, telling the media today ‘it’s going to be a wonderful 17 days’ The American also appeared to forget Ed Miliband‘s name, referring to him as Mr Leader Indian minister tweets that athletes think London accommodation is worse than the Commonwealth Games in Delhi Prime Minister David Cameron says all parts of Britain will get ‘value for money’ from the Olympics Boris Johnson yesterday issued an Olympics rallying cry in response to Mitt Romney’s dig over London’s appetite to host the 2012 Games. The U.S. presidential hopeful, who is in the UK on a diplomatic visit, had doubted the British public’s passion for the Olympics in a television interview for U.S. network NBC. Despite his backtracking – saying that the Olympics would be ‘a wonderful 17 days’ – the man who could replace Barack Obama as the world’s most important leader found himself singled out as public enemy number one. Speaking in front of 60,000 assembled in Hyde Park at a concert to mark the end of the Olympic Torch relay, the London Mayor last night reaffirmed the city’s zeal for the event. ‘There are some people coming from around the world who don’t yet know if we are ready,’ the Mr Johnson roared. ‘There’s a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we are ready. Are we ready? Yes we are!’

Saddam’s WMD is Surfacing in Syria & Iran Now. The Bitch was right. Judith Miller is back but her Masters ain’t happy for her stance on Basher al Assad this Time.

Here’s Dumbass Liberal Hobo Hallucinating to get some Attention & Shopping for Guilt:

Intense Anti-Assad Propaganda

by Stephen Lendman

Western propaganda is relentless. Media scoundrels regurgitate official misinformation and bald-faced lies. Truth and full disclosure are verboten. Judith Miller is back. In fact, she never went away. Earlier she fell from grace for shilling for GW Bush’s Iraq war. She wrote daily propaganda pieces. She was a Pentagon press agent. She still is. She’s not a legitimate journalist. After Syrian officials were killed last week, she called its defense apparatus “decapitated.” In fact, those killed were quickly replaced. Syrian forces routed Western death squads in Damascus and elsewhere. It’s battling them in Aleppo. It’s the nation’s largest city and commercial hub. Expect a similar result there. Assad’s government remains in control overall. Miller did what she does best. She lied and never says she’s sorry. Recent Mossad-connected Debkafile reports stoked fear by claiming Syrian chemical weapons are being moved and may be used. On July 22, it claimed “Jordanian armies and US Middle East forces have switched to preparedness mode….in case Syrian chemical weapons (head) toward Lebanon.” US and Israeli “military chiefs prefer to stop (them) before (they move) across the border.” It quoted Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak saying: “I’ve ordered the Israeli military to prepare for a situation where we would have to weigh the possibility of carrying out an attack against Syrian weapons arsenals.” “The state of Israel cannot accept a situation where advanced weapons systems are transferred form Syria to Lebanon.” Syria’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi said Damascus will never use chemical or biological weapons internally. Moreover, they’re secured and closely monitored. At the same time, he expressed concern about “tactical bombs or mines containing biological substances that would explode somewhere in a village and then accusing the Syrian forces of doing that.” He urged countries claiming concern for Syrians to switch their “negative media campaigns” to supporting a political solution over violence. Instead, unrelenting propaganda rages. Media scoundrels spread it. Headlines vilify Assad unfairly. The good news is that trust in US television news hit a new low. On July 10, Gallup reported that only 21% of adults expressed “a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in it.” A year ago it was 27%. In 1993, when Gallup began tracking confidence it was 46%. The polling group added that most people no longer feel “confident” about TV news. They also distrust major print media. Gallup attributed negativity to similar views about “many other US institutions and the direction of the country in general.” Given the recent trend, poll numbers suggest a continued downward direction. Growing numbers of Americans know media scoundrels deliver managed news misinformation. It rages on Syria. At times, separating fact from fiction is daunting. Not, however, when people wanting to know what’s going on turn exclusively to reliable alternative sources. Perhaps Gallup one day will say no one watches TV news anymore. Sensible viewers long ago gave up on it. Syria reporting is grossly inaccurate and one-sided. A propaganda war of words rages. Disinformation is official policy. Media scoundrels go along in lockstep. Aggressive wars are called liberating ones. Public opinion is manipulated accordingly. Fabricated reality substitutes for events on the ground. Issues at stake are concealed. Fake ones are promoted. Intense campaigns try to convince people that black is white and vice versa. Enemies face false charges. Human Rights Watch (HRW), Amnesty International (AI), the Human Rights Council (HRC), and broadcasters like BBC, CBC, PBS, NPR, and Democracy Now (DN) support Western imperialism. So do quasi-progressive print publications like Nation magazine, Mother Jones and others. CIA/CFR/Trilateral Commission-connected corporate foundations provide funding. Well-known ones include Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Soros, and MacArthur. Money from these sources is tainted. It expects services rendered in return. Conflicts of interest are rife. Sources viewers, listeners and readers believe are reliable operate often like their major media counterparts. They do it deceptively by delivering quasi-real reports on issues less important than war and peace and imperial dominance. NGOs like HRW and AI are imperial agents. From its 1978 beginnings, HRW delivered pro-Western/anti-Soviet propaganda. It’s a reliable Western propaganda instrument. Executive Director Kenneth Roth is a former federal prosecutor. Former HRW head Aryeh Neier hired him. He left to become president of Soros’ Open Society Institute. Deputy Executive Director for External Relations Carrol Bogert served as Newsweek’s editor, correspondent and bureau chief. Other past and present members have ties to sources representing US foreign policy interests. AI operates the same way. According to Francis Boyle: “Amnesty International is primarily motivated not by human rights but by publicity. Second comes money. Third comes getting more members. Fourth, internal turf battles. And then finally, human rights, genuine human rights concerns.” To be sure, if you are dealing with a human rights situation in a country that is at odds with the United States or Britain, it gets an awful lot of attention, resources, man and womanpower, publicity, you name it. They can throw whatever they want at that.” “But if it’s dealing with violations of human rights by the United States, Britain, Israel, then it’s like pulling teeth to get them to really do something on the situation. They might, very reluctantly and after an enormous amount of internal fightings and battles and pressures, you name it. But you know, it’s not like the official enemies list.” In 1990, AI spread Washington propaganda preceding the Gulf War. It supported the falsified report about throwing Kuwaiti babies out of incubators. It lied in return for funding. During the Balkan wars, it performed similar services. It promoted false reports about Serbs committing mass rapes. In 1999, it supported “humanitarian bombing.” It said “AI is not an anti-war organization.” In 2011, it spread unsubstantiated rumors and disinformation during NATO’s Libya war. In May 2012, it participated in an Afghan war campaign. It featured the slogan “NATO: Keep the Progress Going.” In June, Ann Wright and Coleen Rowley wrote about “Amnesty’s Shilling for US Wars,” saying: AI Executive Director Suzanne Nossel worked for Richard Holbrooke at the UN. She also served as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations.

 

In addition, she held prominent positions at the Wall Street Journal and McKinsey & Co. It’s closely connected to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). In other words, she’s an imperial insider. She helped propagate humanitarian intervention and Responsibility to Protect (R2P) notions. In 2004, she coined the term “Smart Power.” It calls for military intervention. She said: “To advance from a nuanced dissent to a compelling vision, progressive policymakers should turn to the great mainstay of twentieth-century U.S. foreign policy: liberal internationalism, which posits that a global system of stable liberal democracies would be less prone to war.” “Washington, the theory goes, should thus offer assertive leadership — diplomatic, economic, and not least, military – to  advance a broad array of goals: self-determination, human rights, free trade, the rule of law, economic development, and the quarantine and elimination of dictators and weapons of mass destruction (WMD).” AI, HRW, ICRC, and other prominent organizations like them shill for power. They’re imperial tools. Their stock and trade is deception. They never apologize. Their reports provide powerful propaganda weapons. Their imperial wars support sanitizes mass deaths and destruction. They’re well compensated for their services. In 2009, allegations surfaced about HRW “trolling for dollars in Saudi Arabia.” It said doing so “compromised its integrity.” Its Middle East/North Africa division director, Sarah Leah Whitson, responded saying: HRW “accepts funding from private individuals and foundations the world over, which we never allow to affect the independence of our work.” She added that a “Saudi” serves on its Middle East Advisory Committee. “Believe it or not,” she said, “some Arabs believe in human rights too.” On its web site, HRW says it “does not receive any government funding to keep its impartiality….” AI says it accepts donations from individuals, other NGOs, governments, and international organizations like the EU. Like HRW, it claims donors don’t compromise its work. Critics say otherwise for good reason. They shill for power and show it.

1. ‘ISRAEL WILL GO TO WAR IF HIZBULLAH GETS CHEMICAL WEAPONS

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Israel is prepared to intervene militarily if Hizbullah gets a hold of Assad”s chemical weapons, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned in Brussels on Tuesday. “In the moment we see that the Syrians transfer chemical and biological weapons to Hizbullah, this is a red line for us and from our point of view it”s a clear “casus belli,”” Lieberman said, using the Latin expression justifying war. “We will act decisively and without hesitation or restraint,” he added. “It will be a completely different ball game and we hope for the understanding of the international community.” He added that Israel knows that the terrorist organization wants “to achieve [access to] chemical and biological weapons.” Syria admitted on Tuesday that it has chemical weapons but said it would use them only if an outside force intervenes in the raging civil war that seems to have all but toppled the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad. Opposition forces said Assad has moved chemical weapons to the northern border, despite official declarations that Syria would “never” use chemical weapons inside its own territory. Lieberman is attending the annual meeting of the EU-Israel Association Council. The European Union has refused his request to label Hizbullah as a terrorist group. The Foreign Minister is visiting 10 European capitals to try to convince them to label Hizbullah a terrorist group, but there is virtually no chance that the European Union will agree because such a decision requires unanimous agreement. The EU considers Hizbullah a political party, regardless of its military activities.

Here is Some Blame-Game from Zerougui Abdelkader Adjunct professor, Ph.D. American University for The Korea Times:

Who will speak for Rohingyas?

The military junta in Myanmar has been courted by the West in its quest to encourage the democratization process in this bastion of tyranny. However, it is primordial that respect of human rights, especially the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya minority should remain high on the international agenda. The Rohingyas are the most defenseless religious minority in the world. However, their fate draws very little attention from the international community. They live in an impoverished enclave between Myanmar and Bangladesh. Since Myanmar’s independence from the British in 1948, thousands of Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh to escape racial and religious prosecution by the Buddhist Rakhines and the Burmese military junta. The Rohingyas have lived in the Arakan region for hundreds of years. However, the annexation of this independent province in 1784 by the Burmese government forced the Rohingyas to endure discriminatory policies, persecution through their marginalization and the restriction of their movement, their marriage, and constantly confiscating their land and driving them to annihilation. In 1977, almost the Burmese junta launched Nagar Min (Dragon King) ― a military operation that drove thousands of Rohingyas to a camp at Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh as a form of ethnic cleansing as hundreds died and thousands were left without food or shelter. In the past decade, the Bangladeshi government has tightened its borders with Burma, as it has already more than 25,000 Rohingya refugees. Faced with a scarcity of land, lack of financial resources and inability to cope with this deluge of refugees, the government turned its back on this helpless minority. The “dark-skinned” Rohingyas, who have some physical traits similar to Bangladeshis have always suffered abuse. The junta passed a law in 1982 that stripped them of their citizenship and made them unwelcome people with no place they can call home. They became the Roma of East Asia. The junta calls them “dogs, thieves, terrorists, and mulattos.” The official state newspaper, The Myanmar Alin, refers to the persecuted Muslims with derogatory names, such as “Kalar,” which means black. Recently, when Myanmar’s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi, in her European tour, was asked about the recent attacks on the Rohingyas that left dozens killed and thousands displaced, her answer was, “I don’t know.” Not a reassuring statement for the Rohingyas’ future. The Muslim world bears a historic moral responsibility in choosing to ignore the continuous ethnic cleansing of the Rohingyas. I am sure that the Arab states can afford a meager portion of the billions of dollars in their coffers to ease some of the hunger and thirst of these forgotten people.

Flight of Christians from Mid-East Reaches Syria
Aidan Clay
“Christians are being ethnically cleansed throughout the Middle East.” Ken Blackwell, Becket Fund for Religious Liberty. A mass exodus of Christians, including a group evacuated from the besieged city of Homs, have been fleeing Syrian cities for safety. Caught in the middle of a showdown between opposition forces and the Syrian army, many Christians fear the prospect of an Islamist-led government if President Bashar al-Assad is deposed. On July 11, Maximos al-Jamal, a Greek Orthodox priest, negotiated a deal between armed rebels and the army to evacuate 63 Christians caught in the crossfire in the bombed-out city of Homs, the Associated Press reports. Al-Jamal feared that as army attacks intensified, rebels were keeping Christians in the city as bargaining chips As al-Jamal told the Associated Press, “Gunmen have told the besieged people that if you go out of these areas, we will die.” Syria’s uprising began early last year, thousands of Christians lived in Homs. Today, however, according to al-Jamal, only 100 Christian civilians remain, a loss that probably contributed more to rebel attacks against Christians than the army’s bombardment of the city. “The armed [rebels] in Syria [have] murdered more than 200 Christians in the city of Homs, including entire families with young children,” a priest in Homs told Barnabas Aid magazine. “These gangs kidnapped Christians and demanded high ransoms. In two cases, after the ransoms were paid, the men’s bodies were found.” The evacuation of Christians from Homs is only the latest occurrence in a mass exodus of Christians from Syrian cities. In June, nearly 10,000 Christians fled Qusayr after being given an ultimatum to leave the city by a rebel commander, Barnabas Aid reported . The threat was apparently echoed in the city mosques: “Christians must leave Qusayr within six days, ending Friday (June 8).” Rebels, however, denied the accusations; they claimed that Christians began fleeing months earlier, when the army shelled the city. Many Syrian Christians, considered loyal to President Assad, are afraid that rebel groups—widely led by Islamists—will persecute non-Muslims and stifle religious freedoms. Historically, Christians have been granted a higher degree of freedom in Syria than in most other Middle Eastern countries. Despite reports of massive violence initiated by the regime, many Syrian Christians still believe that Assad is their final hope for a peaceful existence. “Christians are increasingly being targeted and driven out of their homes and districts.” Elizabeth Kendal wrote for the Religious Liberty Prayer Bulletin. “Some 138,000 Christians have fled Homs, where Christians have been terrorised and churches have been looted and occupied by rebel forces… In areas under rebel control, intolerant, hard-line Sunni fundamentalism is making Muslim-Christian coexistence impossible. For the jihadists, neutrality is not an option, and Christians (and Muslims) refusing to support the jihad are being tortured, expelled and murdered.” As in Egypt, Tunisia, and other Arab countries, the uprisings in Syria—which initially called for democratic change and greater freedoms—provided a platform for Islamists, long-suppressed under authoritarian rule, to rally behind a fundamentalist agenda. “For the newest generation of Sunni jihadists, Syria has become the latest front in the struggle to wrest control of the region from rival religious sects and foreign occupation,” Daniel Brode, Roger Farhat, and Daniel Nisman, intelligence analysts at Max-Security Solutions, wrote in an op-ed for the New York Times. “Many of these fighters hail from the vast reaches of North Africa and the Gulf, arriving in Syria with weapons, funds and a radical ideology.” Asia News, quoting Kuwait’s Arabic-language newspaper, Al-Qabas, reported that “jihadists” from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, and Pakistan “crossed the Syrian-Turkish border to fight in the jihad alongside [opposition forces]… against the regime of Bashar el Assad.” Moreover, Agenzia Fides, the official Vatican news agency, reported that, “armed opposition… is gradually radicalizing towards Sunni extremist ideology.” In another report, Agenzia Fides stated that Syria’s Salafis—who follow the strict Wahhabi doctrine of Islam found in Saudi Arabia—are carrying out “brief executions” against Christian “infidels” while initiating a “sectarian war”. These Christians are given a choice to either join the opposition or face “harassment, discrimination, [and] violence.” As war continues without resolution, there is grave concern that Syrian Christians will follow the path of other ancient Christian communities throughout the Middle East: In Iraq, after the US-led invasion in 2003, more than half the Christian population—caught between Sunni and Shia sectarianism— fled the country. In Egypt, reports indicate that since March 19, 2011, after the political rise of Islamic parties, including the Muslim Brotherhood, at least 93,000 Christians have sought visas to Western countries. The endangered status of Christians in Arab countries is so severe that Ken Blackwell, a human rights expert and board member of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, wrote that “Christians are being ethnically cleansed throughout the Middle East.” “Look at what happened in Egypt and Iraq,” a Syrian church leader, who asked to remain anonymous told International Christian Concern. “Christians want to peacefully go out and ask for certain changes, but Islamist groups are sneaking in with their goal, which is not to make changes for the betterment of Syria, but to take over the country with their agenda. Christians will be the first to pay if this happens.”
