US Slammed for Violating Afghan Human Rights, Civilian Deaths – Hayden’s Note

Posted on Feb 18, 2011 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

A senior Afghan official says the US-led forces have long been violating basic human rights by conducting night raids and killing civilians in the war-ravaged country. Atta Mohammad Noor, the Governor of Balkh Province, says the foreign forces frequently enter residents’ homes and arrest people. “These actions by foreign forces are inhumane and illegal under the Afghan law,” he told reporters in Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of Balkh Province on Thursday.

Hayden’s Note:

I’m sure they still “hate us for our freedoms…”   Right?  Give me a break.  With Hillary recently espousing her rhetoric in support of the protesting Egyptians yet brutalizing and arresting a former CIA worker who dared to stand during her speech in defiance, and the State Dept. trying to stir the pot in other middle eastern countries via Twitter, it amazes me that we wake up each day and allow this un-American tragedy to continue.  What if a foreign military was in Dallas, going house to house arresting Americans and using drones to flatten neighborhoods? 

Better yet, why can we not abide by the rules and laws that we helped Afghanistan set up in their constitution? ...

US State Dept Tweets to Iran, Tries to Stir Up Protests

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Social Networking

Source: Activist Post

The US State Department has begun sending Twitter messages to Iranians, alluding to the “historic role” social media have played in mass protests against Iran’s 2009 disputed presidential polls.

The Twitter feeds began Sunday as US officials accused Iran of hypocrisy by supporting the anti-government revolt in Egypt but seeking to prevent anti-government demonstrations in Iran.

Hayden’s Note:

Gee, imagine that.  The State Department is trying to stir up problems and create drama in Iran.  Pretty bold of them to do it so openly on Twitter.  But, that’s a sign of the times we’re in.  The intelligence and defense community can openly taunt other countries, on social media and get away with it.  This is a blatant attempt to create another “color-coded revolution.”

On the Twitter account, USAdarFarsi, the State Department said it “recognizes historic role of social media among Iranians We want to join in your conversations.”

In another Tweet, the State Department said: “Iran has shown that the activities it praised Egyptians for it sees as illegal, illegitimate for its own people.”

In a third Tweet, it said “US calls on Iran to allow people to enjoy same universal rights to peacefully assemble, demonstrate as in Cairo.”

In Tehran, riot police on Monday fired tear gas and shot paintballs at protesters who turned what they said was a Tehran rally in support of Arab revolts into an anti-government demonstration, witnesses said....

The CIA on Egypt’s Economy, Financial Deregulation and Protest

The CIA on Egypt’s Economy, Financial Deregulation and Protest

The ongoing demonstrations in Egypt are as much, if not more, about the mass deterioration of economic conditions and the harsh result of years of financial deregulation, than the political ideology that some of the media seems more focused on. Plus, as Mark Engler cross-posted on Alternet and Dissent yesterday, the notion that the protests in Cairo are ‘spontaneous uprisings’ misses the mark. As he eloquently wrote, “there are extraordinary moments when public demonstrations take on a mass character and people who would otherwise not have dreamed of taking part in an uprising rush onto the streets. But these protests are typically built upon years of organizing and preparation on the part of social movements.”

Hayden’s Note:

Let’s not forget that the United States certainly wouldn’t mind if Mubarak is toppled by his own people.  Egypt, with the largest Arab population in the world, has been a bit rough around it’s edges in regards to the Israel/American plan to invade Iran.  With a new puppet installed… err, President… that is a bit more receptive to Western interests, I’m positive that the US has already played their part in this “uprising.”  Also, Egypt receives more aid from the United States than any other country in the world with the exception of Israel.

Assassination of Nuclear Scientist in Iran

Posted on Nov 29, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: Reuters

Two car bomb blasts killed an Iranian nuclear scientist and wounded another in Tehran on Monday in what Iranian officials called an Israeli or U.S.-sponsored attack on its atomic program.

The bombings, rare attacks in the Iranian capital, occurred ahead of a possible meeting between Iran and major powers next month to discuss its nuclear activity, which Western officials suspect is aimed at developing atom bombs. Iran denies this.

In the past few months, the Islamic Republic has arrested a number of alleged “nuclear spies,” warning citizens against leaking information to foreign secret services.

Hayden’s Note:

“…rare attacks in the Iranian capital…”

Iran is right to blame either Israeli or the US for this attack.  Who else would assassinate nuclear scientists with car bombs if not Saudi Arabia – which is unlikely.  They don’t have the cojones to do something like that and instead, count on Western powers to do their dirty work.  With a key nuclear scientist dead, I’m sure nuclear work will slow down in Iran.  Just one big “Connect the Dots” game.

Iranian President Discusses Flaws in 9/11 Story, US Delegates Walk Out of UN Assembly

Posted on Sep 24, 2010 in Global & National News

Source: CNN

 

Delegates from the United States and other nations walked out of the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a fiery speech that criticized Washington, capitalism and the world body itself.

Though incendiary statements from Ahmadinejad are nothing new, tension in the hall grew as the Iranian leader recounted various conspiracy theories ideas about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

“Some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack,” Ahmadinejad told the General Assembly. He followed with the claim that the attacks were aimed at reversing “the declining American economy and its scripts on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world, agree with this view.”

That appeared to be the last straw for many of the diplomats. Representatives from the United States, Britain, Sweden, Australia, Belgium, Uruguay and Spain walked out while Ahmadinejad asserted that U.S. government was involved in the attacks or allowed them to happen as an excuse to go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq....

US Terrorism Against Iran: Understanding the CIA Propaganda

Iran’s Mass Graves: Gen. Hayden Spins “Adult” Propaganda

Former Spook Central boss, Gen. Micheal Hayden, told Fox News yesterday Iran’s latest propaganda effort is offensive.

Gen. Hossein Moghadam, a top Republican Guard official, told the Associated Press Iran has dug mass graves for the bodies of U.S. soldiers in the event Israel and the United States attack. Moghadam said the Republican Guard dug mass graves in the 1980s for Iraqi soldiers when Iran was at war with Iraq under Saddam Hussein, an effort supported by the United States, Israel, and the banksters. The western-instigated war ultimately cost Iran and Iraq around a million dead.

Considering the CIA’s successful efforts to destabilize Iran, Hayden’s comments are grotesquely ironic.

In 1953, the CIA launched Operation Ajax, a coup designed to overthrow Iran’s democratically elected president, Muhammad Mosaddeq. The CIA promptly installed the monarch Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. The Shah’s secret police, SAVAK, were trained by the CIA and Israel’s Mossad and were as brutal and terrifying as the Nazi Gestapo in World War II. The CIA provided the Shah and his sadistic secret police with lists of communists and other political dissidents to be tortured and assassinated....

Iran Issues Sanctions of it’s Own: Drops US Dollar in Oil Exports

Posted on Aug 10, 2010 in Political Issues

Source: Associated Press

Iran is to stop all trade and oil exports in dollars and euros in retaliation against Western sanctions over its nuclear program, a top official was quoted as saying Tuesday.

“We are going to remove dollar and euro from our foreign currency basket and replace them with (Iranian) rial and all other currencies of the countries which accept to cooperate with us,” leading economic daily Doniye e-Ektesad quoted First Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi as saying.

“These currencies are filthy and we will no longer sell our oil in dollar and euro,” Rahimi told a meeting of education officials.

Hayden’s Note:

While this might be bad for gas prices, I’m glad to see Iran step up like this.  They are being extremely smart about this and getting away from the dollar, knowing it will strike at the very core of Western countries without ever having to cause bloodshed.  Without ever depriving anyone of a meal or warmth.  Elegant art of war, if I must say so.  Essentially, placing sanctions on the United States, knowing that our dollar is propped up by nothing except oil!...

Iran’s Ahmadinejad Calls for TV Debate with Obama

Posted on Aug 02, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday to face him in a televised one-on-one debate to see who has the best solutions for the world’s problems.

Hayden’s Note:

Hmmm.  A civil debate between leaders.  What an original idea!?  I believe that ALL conflict leaders should be given 2 hours of televised debate to allow the populations to form their own opinions.  And no PR wrangling.  Straight forward, honest answers only.  If one leader begins offering scripted speech, he should be penalized 60 seconds of air time.  I would enjoy watching this debate but I live in fantasy land, obviously.  Sanctions and War are the only route nowadays!  The US foreign policy of divide, conquer, mislead, intervene and lie has GOT to stop.

The provocative proposal comes as Iran deals with a new wave of international sanctions — driven by Washington — aimed at putting pressure on the Islamic Republic over its nuclear program.

“Toward the end of summer we will hopefully be there for the (U.N.) General Assembly and I will be ready for one-on-one talks with Mr....

‘US Attack on Iran a Matter of Time’

Posted on Jul 20, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Source: Press TV

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad says the US compelled the UN Security Council to impose sanctions against Iran in order to weaken the country and lay the ground for a military attack.

“The world is made to believe once again the lie that Israel’s existence is being threatened by a nuclear armed Iran,” Mohamad said at the opening of the Breaking the Gaza Siege summit in Kuala Lumpur.

He went on to add that these sanctions were adopted despite the fact that Mohamed ElBaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), had repeatedly stated that there is no evidence of Iran pursuing military nuclear program.

Mohamad said that the US followed the same pattern in its previous war against Iraq, and attacked Baghdad after weakening the country by imposing crippling sanctions against it.

The former Malaysian premier added, “It is a matter of time before the war criminals in Israel and the United States launch another war of aggression, once Iran has been weakened by sanctions.”

The one-day International Conference on Breaking the Gaza Siege is expected to conclude with a clear plan on measures and efforts to be undertaken to challenge the siege and eventually put an end to it....

Ahmadinejad: US Behind Terror Attacks

Posted on Jul 19, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Source: Press TV

Iran’s president says US and NATO forces offer financial and material support to terrorists, yet US President Barack Obama, ironically enough, sends a condolence message on the recent deadly terrorist attacks in southeast Iran.

Hayden’s Note:

What makes the US any different than supposed terrorist cells committing violent acts?  Both are done for religious and political reasons.  Both leave hundreds of victims in their wake.  Put yourself in the average Iranian’s shoes.  You might not like everything your Gov’t is doing but now you are a victim of a terrorist act committed by the intelligence community of the United States.  I would be pissed off, as well, the same as many of you felt after 9/11 and to this day.

We are not that much different than the common Iranian, Afghan, Pakistani, etc.  We are all human victims of our Governments in their battle for power, greed and control.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday that US troops in Afghanistan and Pakistan sponsor such acts of terror, reported IRNA.

“No grouping other than US-backed terrorist groups which are devoid of human feelings can commit such acts,” added President Ahmadinejad....

UN Report Suggests Scrapping Dollar – Lengthy Editorial by Hayden Included

Posted on Jun 30, 2010 in Featured Articles, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Source: Reuters

Commentary: Kevin Hayden

A new United Nations report released on Tuesday calls for abandoning the U.S. dollar as the main global reserve currency, saying it has been unable to safeguard value.

But several European officials attending a high-level meeting of the U.N. Economic and Social Council countered by saying that the market, not politicians, would determine what currencies countries would keep on hand for reserves.

“The dollar has proved not to be a stable store of value, which is a requisite for a stable reserve currency,” the U.N. World Economic and Social Survey 2010 said.

Hayden’s Note:

The US Dollar is not a stable store of value because it is not based on any tangible item.  It is a fiat currency; that is, it holds value simply by fiat – by decree or lawful order.  Nixon took us completely off the gold standard, which unhinged the US Dollar from anything valuable other than the “full faith and good credit of the United States.”  Do you believe that the United States could actually make good on it’s “promissory notes” (Federal Reserve notes or dollars) if everyone were to “cash them in?”  What about in 10 years? ...

Iran Attack Moves Forward

Posted on Jun 22, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Source: Kurt Nimmo

Iran permitted the U.S. and Israel to score a propaganda victory on Monday when it refused to allow two International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors entry into the country for an inspection of its nuclear program.

“This action [banning the inspectors from entering Iran] is in reality a regulatory notice to Amano to be careful so that the agency’s inspectors do not violate the international entity’s charter,” Iran’s state news agency IRNA quoted Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki as saying on Tuesday. “Amano should manage the agency professionally.”

Yukiya Amano took over as head of the agency in December. The Japanese diplomat has adopted a less flexible approach toward Iran than his predecessor, Mohamed ElBaradei. On numerous occasions ElBaradei stated there is no evidence Iran is developing nuclear weapons.

The head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Akbar Salehi, said on Monday that the two inspectors made an ”untruthful” assessment of the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, according to state media. Salehi added that the ban imposed on United Nations personnel falls under an IAEA “safeguards agreement” and stressed Iran’s commitment to the the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty....

Castro Speculates Obama Will Strike Iran to Secure 2nd Term

Posted on Jun 04, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Source: Digital Journal

Former Cuban President Fidel Castro believes if United States President Barack Obama orders a nuclear strike of Iran, he will win a second term. He also believes the U.S. could attack North Korea soon.

On Wednesday, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro, who has not been in the media since 2006, published a column in a Cuban state media publication titled “The Empire and War.”

In the article, Castro speculated that President Barack Obama could order a nuclear strike against Iran to help him win a second term in the White House, according to the Associated Press.

The former President further added that Obama could attack North Korea because of the recent incident where North Korea was accused of attacking a South Korean ship. Castro went on to state that the U.S. Commander-in-Chief lives in a world of fantasy because many of his advisers are planting such things in his head.

Israel Stations Nuclear Submarine Off Iran Coast

Posted on Jun 01, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Source: Times Online

Hayden’s Note:

This might mean that we will see military action within the next 45-60 days.  Stay tuned.

Three German-built Israeli submarines equipped with nuclear cruise missiles are to be deployed in the Gulf near the Iranian coastline.

The first has been sent in response to Israeli fears that ballistic missiles developed by Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, a political and military organisation in Lebanon, could hit sites in Israel, including air bases and missile launchers.

The submarines of Flotilla 7 — Dolphin, Tekuma and Leviathan — have visited the Gulf before. But the decision has now been taken to ensure a permanent presence of at least one of the vessels.

The flotilla’s commander, identified only as “Colonel O”, told an Israeli newspaper: “We are an underwater assault force. We’re operating deep and far, very far, from our borders.”

Each of the submarines has a crew of 35 to 50, commanded by a colonel capable of launching a nuclear cruise missile.

The vessels can remain at sea for about 50 days and stay submerged up to 1,150ft below the surface for at least a week....
