THIERRY MEYSSAN -- Donald Trump against jihadism

Donald Trump against jihadism

Donald Trump’s speech to the leaders of the Muslim world marks a radical change in US military policy. As from now, the enemy is no longer the Syrian Arab Republic, but jihadism, in other words the strategic tool of the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

During his electoral campaign, Donald Trump had declared that he had no interest in overthrowing régimes, although he intends to put an end to Islamic terrorism. Since his election, his adversaries have been attempting to force him to follow their policy – using the power of the Muslim Brotherhood to overthrow the Syrian Arab Republic.
They have used anything they could to destroy the team chosen by candidate Trump, notably by provoking the resignation of his National Security Advisor, General Michaël Flynn. In 2012, Flynn had opposed Barack Obama’s project to create Daesh, and he continued to finger the Muslim Brotherhood as the source of Islamic terrorism.
Everything has been used to present the new US President as an Islamophobe. He was criticised for having promulgated a decree forbidding entry into his country to citizens of six Muslim States. Democrat magistrates abused their functions in order to uphold this accusation. In reality, Donald Trump has suspended entry for people whose consulates are unable to verify their identity, because they are subject to civil troubles or open war.
The problem that Donald Trump has to face is not posed by the survival of the Syrian Arab Republic, but by the loss of what would represent, for certain allies of Washington, the end of the terrorist strategy. It is clearly recognised in all international conferences that all states are publicly opposed to Islamic terrorism, although in private, some of these states have been organising it for the last 66 years.
This is primarily the case of the United Kingdom, which, in 1951, built the Muslim Brotherhood on the ruins of the organisation of the same name, which had been dissolved two years earlier, and almost all of whose leaders were in prison. It is also the case of Saudi Arabia, who, at the demand of London and Washington, created the Muslim World League in order to support both the Brotherhood and the Naqshbandi Order. It is this League, whose budget is superior to that of the Saudi Ministry of Defence, which supplies money and weapons to the jihadist system throughout the world. And finally, it is also the case of Turkey, which now supervises the command of the military operations of this system.
By concentrating his speech in Riyadh on the clarification of the misconceptions concerning his relations with Islam and the affirmation of his intention to put an end to the jihadist tool of the Anglo-Saxon secret services, Donald Trump imposed his will on the fifty states gathered to listen to him. In order to avoid misunderstanding, his Secretary for Defense, James Mattis, clearly explained his military strategy – to encircle the jihadist groups, and then to exterminate them without allowing a single one to escape.
We do not yet know what London’s reaction will be. As for Riyadh, Donald Trump was very careful to whitewash the Sauds for their past crimes. Saudi Arabia has not been accused of anything, but Iran has been handed the role of scapegoat. This is obviously absurd, since the Muslim Brotherhood and the Naqshbandis are Sunnis, while Teheran is Chiite.
The accusations against Iran have no importance, since Teheran knows which way the wind is blowing. For the last 16 years, Washington – which never misses an opportunity to spit in their faces – has been destroying, one by one, all their enemies – the Taliban, Saddam Hussein and soon Daesh.
What is now in play, as we announced eight months ago, is the end of the “Arab Springs” and the return to regional peace.

RÉSEAU VOLTAIRE -- Indian Air Force’s Army on Isis Alert

Indian Air Force’s Army on Isis Alert

In a letter addressed to 12,000 officers of the Indian Air Force’s Army, the Air Force’s Chief Marshal, Birender Singh Dhanoa, asked them to get ready for new operations for which very little notice would be given.
General Dhanoa made explicit reference to a terrorist threat to Jammu and Kashmir.
We have recently indicated that numerous members of Daesh are leaving Syria for Kashmir via Pakistan.
There have only been two occasions in the past where Superior Indian officers have addressed a letter to their junior officers: on 1 May 1950 by General K M Cariappa and 1 February 1986 by General K Sundarji.

 Força Aérea da Índia em Alerta perante o Estado Islâmico - ISIS 


Ao dirigir uma carta a 12.000 oficiais do Exército da Força Aérea da Índia, o Marechal Birender Singh Dhanoa, pediu-lhes que preparassem para novas operações com pré-aviso muito curto.

O General Dhanoa fazia uma referência explícita a uma ameaça terrorista em Jammu e Caxemira.

Informamos recentemente que muitos membros da Daesh deixaram a Síria em direcção à Caxemira, via Paquistão.

Somente dois oficiais superiores indianos enviaram uma carta aos seus subordinados: o General K M Cariappa, em 01 de Maio de 1950 e o General K Sundarji, em 1 de Fevereiro de 1986.

THIERRY MEYSSAN -- The Pentagon has its eyes on Venezuela

The Pentagon has its eyes on Venezuela

The recent events of violence that took place in Venezuela, driven by radical, right wing groups, have got sociologists, political scientists, journalists and national and international intellectuals talking. 
Thierry Meyssan, a journalist, researcher and expert in geopolitics, warned that these acts form part of a strategy, designed by the US Government, to provide the basis for a military intervention; an intervention similar to what took place in countries in the Middle East and North Africa and the product of campaigns seeking to set up people against people and people against governments; events which have come to be known as the Arab Spring.

Thierry Meyssan
What exactly does the United States want from our country?
— The United States is seeking to generate here in your country a civil war of the genre it launched at the beginning of this decade in some countries in North Africa and the Middle East – the so-called Arab Spring, where they pitched in combat brothers against brothers to weaken the region’s governments by funding highly radicalized terrorist groups that we are witnessing right now sowing terror.
— How do you think that this strategy is going to function?
— Even though it is not clear what groups from here are supporting the United States achieving its goal, I take note that it has several military bases in a neighbouring country. Thus clearly danger is in the making. For starters, the US is going to carve up the population by trying to radicalize it.
— How do you think it is going to bring about this division?
— First, the US will try to convince the Venezuelans that this government will first be displaced and then replaced by another government. The idea is that the people will lose confidence in the government and public institutions. Once this seed has been planted in their minds, the hope is that people will be convinced that History’s writing is on the wall and that there is nothing they can do about it. This would be similar to what has taken place in the Arab countries; of course, the only people to have survived threats of this type are precisely those that have remained united. In the case of Venezuela, it is worth emphasizing that the Commander Hugo Chavez scattered the seeds of nationalism throughout the country and the germination of such seeds is important to tackle the situation before us.
— But why exactly does this Northern country want this?
— Let me take you back to 2001: after the Twin Towers collapsed and the Pentagon was attacked, there was no objection to the US flouting all fundamental rights; it was then it began to start attacking each one of the Near East states; the next step will be Latin America. From the beginning of the nineties, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the United States set itself up as the incontrovertible world power. By this time, it was already conscious of what it had to do in order to achieve this; if it was necessary, it had to lose many things. If it had to lose both its arms, it would be ready to do it.
— What would be the role of the mass media in this plan and how should we compare its information policy with that employed in conflicts in the Arab states?
— For us, these demonstrations that have taken place in Venezuela have been evidently covered by international media to present an image which is very different from what is actually occurring. As for what occurred yesterday (Monday) on the motorway (Francisco Fajardo), it was magnified to show that war has erupted in Venezuela and that opposition is no “David”. The truth is that I saw for myself this demonstration and noted just how poor turnout actually was. Also the impression the media had wanted to give to the Western World is that people are dying of hunger in Venezuela simply because the government is not giving them anything to eat.
— What opinion do you have on the press coverage on the harassment and aggressions, in one form or another, chiefly in the United States and in some European countries, of persons that support the Bolivarian Revolution and its President?
— The question that must be posed is why the media is lying? It is illogical, and senseless; yet clearly, the response must be that these media form part of the military policy the US is pursuing to establish a basis for war (ius ad bellum). In the Pentagon’s command room there are military groups that are not there to see what is actually going on but simply to plan together; for example, with people from Reuters Agency and of course they rely on the participation of a pool or group of international media. With all these elements, it is claimed to create a negative image of some Government officers by charging them of being drug traffickers or being involved in crimes of corruption or assassinating their own people. To implement this plan, it is necessary to fund and form groups for terrorist actions to attack public institutions and to create an inverse effect. The one exception is the television channel, Telesur, which presents facts as they are.
Of course, to reach this goal, a plan has also been drawn up to slow down communications between Venezuela and the rest of the world. I have spent four days in Venezuela and it has been very difficult for me to communicate by telephone. I had to have recourse to applications like “whats app”, for example, applications which are under US control.
— What is going to happen to countries classified as US allies but which also have affinity to us because they are part of Latin America?
JPEG - 29.4 kb
— It is unclear if this attack will be strictly limited to the countries of “North East” South America (Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador), or directed against the Latin America in its entirety; but, if we go by documents declassified in 2004 by the Pentagon, it is not anticipated that it will strike any of the following: Argentina, Mexico and Brazil. We must keep in mind that from 2004 to now, many things have happened in Brazil and Mexico, because of which the US strategy could have changed.
— What perception do you have of Venezuela following your four day stay?
— I believe that the Venezuelan people are really motivated to preserve their gains. To the extent that the people are gaining confidence in the country, of course, Venezuela is doing well. Also, it is very important that the Venezuelans seek alternative means, different to the US allies, to be able to provide information on what is actually happening. They could use VoltaireNet for example as such a vehicle.

THIERRY MEYSSAN -- El Pentágono tiene a Venezuela en la mira

El Pentágono tiene a Venezuela en la mira

Recientes actos de violencia perpetrados en Venezuela por sectores de la derecha dieron lugar a la apertura de una discusión entre sociólogos, politólogos, periodistas e intelectuales nacionales y extranjeros. 
El periodista, investigador y experto en geopolítica, Thierry Meyssan, advirtió que esos actos son parte de una estrategia diseñada por Estados Unidos para justificar una intervención militar, como las que han ocurrido en países del Medio Oriente y del norte de África, producto de las campañas para enfrentar pueblo contra pueblo y pueblo contra gobierno, en lo que ha dado en llamarse la «primavera árabe».

Thierry Meyssan
¿Qué es lo que busca en concreto Estados Unidos en nuestro país?
Thierry Meyssan: Estados Unidos quiere generar aquí una especie de guerra civil similar a la que se inició a principios de esta década en algunos países del norte de África y del Medio Oriente, que se llamó la «primavera árabe», donde pusieron a pelear hermanos contra hermanos para debilitar los gobiernos de la región mediante el financiamiento de los grupos terroristas y extremadamente radicales que estamos viendo ahora sembrando el terror.

RÉSEAU VOLTAIRE -- Trump’s Speech at Riyadh focuses on eradicating terrorism, not Islam

Trump’s Speech at Riyadh focuses on eradicating terrorism, not Islam


Contrary to what Western Press agencies are reporting and President Obama’s delivery in Egypt eight years ago, President Donald Trump did not deliver a speech on Islam during his trip to Saudi Arabia.
Recalling that his voyage which began in Saudi Arabia, the land of Islam’s holy places and would continue to Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Vatican. He has called for the practice of tolerance and respect between the three religions of Abraham.
Focusing his discussion on the fight against terrorism, he appealed to the religious and humanist sentiments of the Muslim leaders present, pleading that they no longer cooperate with those sowing the seeds of death. He invited them to participate in the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology. What follows are the principal extracts of his speech:
« We are not here to give sermons; we are not here to preach to others how they must live, act, learn or worship. Instead, we are here to offer a partnership – based on interests and shared values – so that we all can pursue a future that will be brighter for us all.

(…) It is a choice between two futures – it is a choice that America cannot make for you. A better future is only possible if your nations reject terrorists and extremists. Throw them out. Throw them out of your places of worship. Throw them out of your communities. Throw them out of your holy land. Banish them from our earth .
For our part, America is committed to adjusting its strategies to face new threats and facts as they develop. We will eliminate strategies that have not worked and will apply new techniques that have emerged from experience and judgement. We are adopting a pragmatic approach, anchored in common values and shared interests.
(…) The religious leaders must make this absolutely clear; inhumanity will not bring any glory to you – devotion to evil will not bring you any dignity. If you choose the path of terror, then your life will be short and your soul condemned.
(…) With God’s help, this summit will mark the beginning of the end for those who practise terror and who propagate their vile credo. At the same time, we pray so that we may remember the day of this gathering as the beginning of peace in the Middle East - and possibly throughout the entire world.

(…) I ask you to join me, to join me, to work together – United, we will not fail. I thank you. May God bless you. May God bless your country. And may God bless the United States of America ».

I want to thank King Salman for his extraordinary words, and the magnificent Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for hosting today’s summit. I am honored to be received by such gracious hosts. I have always heard about the splendor of your country and the kindness of your citizens, but words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived.


At midday on Friday 5 February, 2016 Julian Assange, John Jones QC, Melinda Taylor, Jennifer Robinson and Baltasar Garzon will be speaking at a press conference at the Frontline Club on the decision made by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention on the Assange case.
