As many as 576,000 Iraqi children may have died since the end of the Persian Gulf war because of economic sanctions imposed by the Security Council, according to two scientists who surveyed the country for the Food and Agriculture Organization.

No one knows with certainty how many people have been killed and wounded in Iraq since the 2003 United States invasion. However, we know that over 182,000 civilians have died from direct war related violence caused by the US, its allies, the Iraqi military and police, and opposition forces from the time of the invasion through November 2018.

Economic sanctions are weapons of mass destruction much more deadly than precision munitions like smart bombs, smart artillery, or aimed gunfire. Sanctions may be aimed at specific targets, but they harm civilians indiscriminately and punish the people for the misdeeds of the rulers.

And sanctions can go on and on for decades while the civilian death toll mounts because there is little dissent against sanctions within the US while many people protest strongly against war. US fatalities create pressure to end war, but there are no US fatalities to create pressure to end sanctions. Ammunition and military operations are expensive and put a strain on the armed services in many different ways which also crates pressure to end war. Sanctions cost the government very little in money, it costs almost nothing to maintain them indefinitely.

I am not advocating war. I am pointing out that relying on sanctions, year after year, decade after decade on some of the poorest countries in the world (made poor by sanctions) such as North Korea and Cuba is not morally superior simply because it avoids combat.

Trump may be right to spare the lives of US soldiers, but that does not mean his policies are kinder to the people who live in the countries the US is at odds with..

WERE HILL DEMS (MAYBE SOME REPS, TOO) BEING BLACKMAILED? By Imran Awan, the former House IT aide who worked for a fifth of the Democratic House Caucus and used his position to hack Congress, the Democratic National Committee and who knows what else?

Luke Rosiak, the investigative reporter who broke the Awan scandal, tells The Epoch Times he is convinced that Awan blackmailed Members of Congress before his arrest and may yet be blackmailing it today. But House Democrats don’t want to talk about it? Guess what, neither does former Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who looked the other way for months despite abundant evidence of what was going on under his nose.

Listen to Rosiak lay it out in stark, documented detail and you will find yourself nodding agreement with him that this is the biggest scandal in the entire history of Congress. It is an extraordinary story and Rosiak is the only Washington journalist who cared enough to dig out the details. It’s all in his book, too — “Obstruction of Justice.”

What is becoming increasingly likely -- At least two presidents were closely associated with Epstein. Both swear they haven't heard from him in years. Trump says he had a falling out and even kicked Epstein out of Mar Lago. Here's the point that isn't brought up by Trump supporters. Epstein rapes a 14-year-old at Trump's hotel and Trump does NOT call the cops. Think about that again. That is what a close associate would do (and/or someone compromised). Moving on. Both Clinton and Trump have handfuls of rape, sexual assault, and statutory accusations and charges against them. Many of these victims are quite credible. Trump has a couple of accusations with Epstein in the vicinity. Unsure of Clinton. But nothing yet that would get them embroiled in the Epstein investigation.

The intelligence-linked angle is interesting. We have been told that when Acosta interviewed for a job in the Trump admin, he was asked about the sweetheart deal with Epstein, and said that it was because he was told Epstein was intelligence. Do we have definitive proof he said that? People like to throw around Israeli intelligence links as well, but I would be willing to wager that a lot of rich Jewish American men that vocally support Israeli & American foreign policy have such links. It doesn't necessarily mean he was intelligence. Good hypothesis supporting intelligence angle here: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1148303671857491968.html
And here is the hedge funders take on Epstein (this one has made the rounds so you may have read it): http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019...-some-thoughts-on-what-epstein-was-doing.html

What the media isn't focusing so much is on the recruitment process for the women and girls. It has mostly been glossed over or taken at face value. If all it is, is some kind of trick to get young women to believe they will be modeling for the big time, then the stories of Westall and other people that ONLY (or at least firstly) look through a conspiracy lens, fall flat. Of course what conspiracy culture also doesn't like to bring up is that Epstein is not a pedophile. Pedophiles are people who rape pre-pubescent children. I have seen no such credible accusations of pedophilia in this case. The reason that this is important is that all too many "researchers" who speak of the "satanic pedophile rings" are clapping their hands and taking a bow that the revelations of Epstein's behavior is proof these things exist. They aren't showing this. Not even close.

Some also focus on linking Epstein to the Nexim cult and Democratic Party because many of the leaders gave money to Hillary Clinton. What they fail to mention is that the Nexim Cult gave much more money to New York State republicans. Sounds like a cult trying to legitimize itself using the game of politics. Once again, no proof of actual pedophiles in this cult either, yet conspiracy people like Westall (and Opperman) try to link it with the giant pedophile satanist rings. But I am off the frontage road and need to get back on track.

Some are also now trying to tie Pizzagate and Q-Anon as psyops and covers for the Epstein thing. This I find more credible but until the identities of Q-Anon are discovered no one will be satisfied with this theory. The theory is that Pizzagate was created to discredit #OpDeathEaters (look them up if you don't know who they are -- they were Anonymous linked geeks that were partly trying to raise awareness of Epstein's behavior), while QAnon was created to discredit and take attention away from #Anonymous. Various hackers say they know that both were creations of prominent Trump supporters and backed by the state (but I have not seen definitive proof). It is an interesting theory and seems somewhat plausible (it also served the purpose of being a recruitment tool to rile certain demographics up with Pizzagate, get them in the Republican Party, and then pacify them w/ some Q-Anon opium). Link to pizzagate & Qanon theory here -- https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1149045274938994688.html

Another interesting addition. Recently, factually accurate articles have been making the rounds about how child trafficking prosecutions under Trump have gone DOWN and not UP, as so many are claiming and screaming about. In fact, the numbers show Obama doing a better job with prosecutions than Trump. But when looking at these numbers, be careful to keep the data sets consistent and to watch out for hoaxes. Ben Shapiro was recently caught using different data sets for Obama than Trump and this was pointed out to show the exact opposite of his claims. He quietly moved on.
Good twitter feed between Will, myself, and a Q-Anon supporter with links to the stats of prosecutions going down - Will Merthon is a journalist who has been covering these stories and Q-Anon and should be sought out to get the facts straight. For instance, remember those 60,000 sealed indictment claims that are still making the rounds? Yeah, he investigated that and showed it for what it was. 100% bullshit. This link is perfect in showing how a conspiracy story gets out of control. I mean, it is absolutely perfect and deserves to win an award -- https://wmerthon6.wixsite.com/website-1/home/who-started-the-60k-sealed-indictment-claim

My latest thoughts. Sorry for the ramble. Hope this provides some food for thought.
 
Here is a Part I journalistic dive into the links between the Italian and Jewish mafia, Hoover and the FBI, elements of the CIA, Roy Cohn, and Jeffrey Epstein. It is a LONG read and only a part I. But Whitney Webb does an excellent job of giving a much broader context to how sex trafficking and blackmail has been systemic to concentrations of power and weaponized since the rise of Cold War politics. An excellent read.

Gramscian damage
Posted on 2006-02-11
...
Americans have never really understood ideological warfare. Our gut-level assumption is that everybody in the world really wants the same comfortable material success we have.
...
By contrast, ideological and memetic warfare has been a favored tactic for all of America’s three great adversaries of the last hundred years — Nazis, Communists, and Islamists.
...
In a previous post on Suicidalism, I identified some of the most important of the Soviet Union’s memetic weapons. Here is that list again:

◾There is no truth, only competing agendas.
◾All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism.
◾There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.
◾The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable.
◾Crime is the fault of society, not the individual criminal. Poor criminals are entitled to what they take. Submitting to criminal predation is more virtuous than resisting it.
◾The poor are victims. Criminals are victims. And only victims are virtuous. Therefore only the poor and criminals are virtuous. (Rich people can borrow some virtue by identifying with poor people and criminals.)
◾For a virtuous person, violence and war are never justified. It is always better to be a victim than to fight, or even to defend oneself. But ‘oppressed’ people are allowed to use violence anyway; they are merely reflecting the evil of their oppressors.
◾When confronted with terror, the only moral course for a Westerner is to apologize for past sins, understand the terrorist’s point of view, and make concessions.
...
..., the index of Soviet success is that most of us no longer think of these memes as Communist propaganda. ... there was a time... when all of these ideas would have seemed ... instruments of deliberate subversion intended to destroy the American way of life.
...
...
memetic subversion against the U.S. on many levels at a scale that is only now becoming clear as historians burrow through their archives and ex-KGB officers sell their memoirs..
...
The most paranoid and xenophobic conservatives of the Cold War were, painful though this is to admit, the closest to the truth in estimating the magnitude and subtlety of Soviet subversion.
...
While the espionage apparatus of the Soviet Union didn’t outlast it, their memetic weapons did. These memes are now coming near to crippling our culture’s response to Islamic terrorism.

Jim,
That is the position of each of the democrat candidates for 2020 as well as many democrat congress people. That's why I say that they - and anyone who talks that way - are actually the enemy of the United States.

It's also why I'm opposed to conspiracy theories unless they are demonstrated at a high standard of proof (not just "uh well a building never fell that way before. So definitely our government is corrupt, secret, break away society, greed head, pedo, satan worshippers" or "Pentagon accounting machines can't talk to each other so definitely an equivalent of the entire GDP of the country has been stolen and used on alien tech mind control and DNA break away society schemes by the satan worshipping pedo class").

Those sound likely to have been fostered by enemy states to undermine US national unity, legitimacy and a will to fight for the country.

My guess is China #1, then Russia to a much lesser degree. Probably Islamic elements getting hip to this tactic as well in recent years.

P.S. I actually like Russia and Russians. Russia will be the last bastion of Western civ in a hundred years.

Rust never sleeps.

I wonder if the defenders of Trump on this forum would defend Roy Cohn?

fair point. Trump famously said, "where's my Roy Cohn?" as in, "where's someone like my great mentor who would set aside any normal human moral discernment in order to get the job done" a true left hand pather.

nice. thx for sharing.

one minor quibble, while I understand that it's necessary for an article like this to use languages that softens the true evil of these crimes, it does seem important to remember that we're talkin about the rape, torture and in many cases murder a girls and boys who are 5 years old, or 7 years old 10 years old. this opens the door to having real conversations about the nature of evil. these conversations are impossible for atheistic journalists to engage in... it's a paradigm limiting blind spot.
 
Indeed. The pundits have already launched the first salvos on YouTube. The key thing is, whether his death will prevent a lot of incriminating stuff on elites coming out.
A lot of people will be somewhat relieved by news of his death. Will anything come of any investigation? Epstein’s right hand woman will no doubt know a lot, she won’t sleep well from now on. They’re supposedly claiming that cameras ‘malfunctioned’.

Jake Morphonios had a really detailed investigative series which gave rather too good a picture of Epstein if you’re interested. As might be expected, it’s an uncomfortable listen at times.
Here is the first one:

Attorney General Barr Says Any Epstein Co-Conspirators ‘Should Not Rest Easy’
OAN Newsroom
UPDATED 10:44 AM PT — Monday, August 12, 2019

Attorney General William Barr says the case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Jeffrey Epstein, following the disgraced financier’s apparent suicide.
...
The attorney general also said he and the whole Department of Justice were appalled and angry to learn about the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s failure to adequately secure Epstein. Barr pointed out the Justice Department’s inspector general and the FBI are both investigating “serious irregularities” at the facility.
