Poking bears and pointing fingers

US forces are establishing bases, uninvited, within Syria's southern border. By what right, we may ask, but clearly war, destruction of another nation state and provoking the Russian bear are still very much on the agenda. When all else fails (manufactured "Arab Spring", false flag chemical attacks and importing foreign mercenaries - ISIS) direct confrontation is what's left. Will the US really be so stupid as to start direct military confrontation with the Syrian army and, by implication, Russia?

Meanwhile, the Middle Eastern oil potentates are falling out. Qatar has always been a partial outlier in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), not least because of its state sponsored news channel, Al Jazeera, but hitherto Qatar has been working alongside Saudi Arabia in creating conflict within and beyond the region. Now Qatar is being isolated, which begs the question: are we seeing the next phase in the destruction of nation states in the Middle East - the GCC countries? The imperial dream of "Greater Israel" beckons.

Subjugate Qatar into Client State Status: “The GCC States Led by Saudi Arabia Will Collapse into Oblivion” by Moon of Alabama
Emboldened by U.S. backing Saudi Arabia launched a campaign to finally subjugate Qatar into client state status. The plan has now reached a high point. A few hours ago Bahrain, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia severed all ties with Qatar.
All sea- and airspace have been closed for Qatari traffic and the land-routes severed. All Qataris will have to leave those countries within 14 days. Qatari diplomats were given just 48 hours.

Like ISIS, Saudi Arabia and Wahhibism are creations of the hegemonic agenda.

Finally, we have another whistleblower story, this time reinforcing mainstream media claims that Russia is interfering in US politics. Wikileaks, the Intercept and other organisations maybe doing good in exposing some truths but they appear also to be used to plant disinformation. As the Ray Winstone character reveals in the "Edge of Darkness", the most effective way to bury the truth is to embed it within a plethora of contradictory lies to ensure the true story is discredited along with the lies; people end up not knowing what to believe and submit to the oft repeated false narratives. RL Winner may be "programmed" or just a naive dupe in another PSYOPS operation but whatever her motivation, she's only a pawn in the game.

NSA "Intelligence Report" Does NOT Show "Russia Executed A CyberAttack" by Moon Of Alabama
Do Not Trust The Intercept or How To Burn A Source
The Intercept, a subdivision of First Look Media, was founded by Pierre Omidyar, a major owner of the auctioning site eBay and its PayPal banking division. Omidyar is a billionaire and "philanthropist" who's (tax avoiding) Omidyar Network foundation is "investing" for "returns". Its microcredit project for farmers in India, in cooperation with people from the fascists RSS party, ended in an epidemic of suicides when the farmers were unable to pay back. The Omidyar Network also funded (fascist) regime change groups in Ukraine in cooperation with USAID. Omidyar had cozy relations with the Obama White House. Some of the held back NSA documents likely implicate Omidyar's PayPal.
