Australia support dialogue with Taliban, says Peter Heyward


Peter Heyward, Australian High Commissioner in Islamabad

Shamim writes about Australian interest of investing in Pakistan natural resources. Shamim does not mention the scenario specifically but I am guessing his excitement is in the potential of Australian investment in providing better paying jobs for impoverished Christians under constant persecution in Pakistan. Although Australian investment would be good for the Pakistan economy I am not as optimistic as Shamim is that it would benefit the impoverished Christians that are viewed on the very low wrung of Pakistani society. Peter Heyward, Australian High Commissioner to Pakistan provides the hopeful scenario for Shamim in an interview. This is what Heyward is telling his fellow Australian when visiting home.
 
Just to give a little context about the Pakistan mentality: Shamim mentions the sport cricket in this article. You should be aware that the sport of cricket is very huge in Pakistan. Cricket stars are placed on a comparable high platform as perhaps NFL, NBA, MLB and so on are in the USA.

ISLAMABAD: Australia supports dialogue with the Taliban to keep peace in the country said Peter Heyward, Australian High Commissioner in Islamabad. Talking to Shamim Masih he said that Australia has offered to invest in the vast coal reserves of Pakistan. We are interested in the mining, energy and agriculture sector of Pakistan. The agriculture sectorShamim Masih, interviews Peter Heyward, Australian High Commissioner in Islamabad is one of the big contributors in Pakistan’s economy and our companies are interested to invest in this sector.  We support Pakistan in different sectors including energy. Coal is our specialty and Australian had been using coal for years, so we can Pakistan in this sector as well. Our experts are working in mines in Baluchistan. A terrorist attack on Sri Lankan cricket team has blocked doors of international cricketers in Pakistan. Pakistan and India should resolve their issues through dialogue including Kashmir dispute.
 
Peter Heyward, Australian High Commissioner visited Daily Khabrian & Channel – 5 in Islamabad. Heyward said that Pakistan is facing the destructive situation of terrorism in the country and Australia supports the dialogue process to resolve the issues. Although Australia is part of allied forces in Afghanistan but none of the Australian officials are engaged with the Taliban. He said many Australian troops left and the rest will leave by the end of 2014, while some of the US troops will remain there.
 
Heyward invited Pakistani business people to visit Australia to hold investment conferences and seminars for matchmaking of the investor communities of both sides. He said we are reluctant in providing visa to business men.
 
He affirmed the on-going bilateral treaties between Pakistan and Australia which are being proceeded to facilitate the investment and trade prospects. He briefly described about the investment possibilities in Pakistan and also mentioned the special economic zones which are an investor friendly incentive.
 
Peter Heyward said that he has presented a soft image of Pakistan to Australian business people and won [them] over to invest in Pakistan.  He has visited and met the business community of the country. Australian cows and sheep are popular in Pakistan and this breed is introduced. Australian companies are now engaged in Pakistan and are working in different sectors including energy, electronics etc. in Pakistan. Australian experts are now exploring gold, silver and other mines in Baluchistan, he added.
 
High commissioner said that Australia is a peaceful country and I feel proud to be here. Pakistan is full of natural resources; the government should pay full attention to explore these resources to bring prosperity in the country. If these resources are worked efficiently we can alleviate poverty [in Pakistan].  
 
Be Blessed,

Green Agenda a Leftist Revolution of an Elite Internationalism on USA Resources

Have you ever read this guy’s stuff? He covers Russian influences and the link between the Left, the Green Movement and the Russians. It’s quite interesting.

 

Snapping up, locking down the land, so is the Green Agenda a Leftist Revolution of an Elite Internationalism on USA Resources??

 

Author warns Obama agenda to deliberately seal off assets

http://www.wnd.com/2012/05/snapping-up-locking-down-the-land/ 

 

The author of “Eco-Tyranny: How the Left’s Green Agenda will Dismantle America” warns that the federal government has been collecting properties across the country for years, even now is working to control more and ultimately wants to block off any use by the American people.

 

In a commentary published in Forbes, author Brian Sussman argues that every American is heir to an “unfathomable fortune” in natural resources on nationally owned land but is condemned to bankruptcy by a government that won’t let them use it.

 

Sussman says it’s the deliberate policy of a government “beholden to the green agenda.”

 

He reports that “the feds now own nearly 700 million acres of property” that contain huge amounts of natural resources the country could use in difficult economic times, including oil, natural gas, minerals, timber and water.

 

Instead, the federal government has permanently removed these lands from economic development, deliberately harming the interests of the country to please environmentalists.

 

Now, Sussman reports, “the Obama administration … seeks to sell low-valued federal land, void of natural resources, and purchase more lucrative private property to cobble together a colossal new federal estate, which will not only be off-limits to development of natural resources, but off-limits to you.” (READ MORE)

Talk Show Host Sounds Warning About Russian & U.S. Military Joint Anti-Terrorist Drills 

 

Steve Cooper
TheConservativeMonster.com (Newbill provided no link for this story)

 

Talk show host John Moore claims that “his sources” from CIA headquarters told him that there will be 200 Russian Special Forces ‘Spetsnaz’ troops participating in the anti-terror drills at Ft. Carson. I do believe this to be true.

 

These anti-terror drills will take place May 21st – May 31st, 2012 crossing over Memorial Day weekend. For U.S. Troops to be doing military drills with Russians troops on U.S. soil over Memorial Day weekend is even shocking to me (that is not easy to do).

 

Where are the U.S. Military leaders? You have failed the American people for allowing this to even take place. Don’t give me that crap that the ‘Cold War’ ended. Tell that to the morons that watch MSNBC. 

 

John Moore also claims that up to 30,000-100,000 might be on U.S. Soil by the end of the year. This I can’t confirm, but anything is possible judging by the direction that we are heading.

 

If these soldiers disappeared into the American population it could be a danger to National Security like never seen before. John Moore clearly knows about Russian Spetsnaz soldiers and how deadly they are. They are well trained in everything that you could imagine.

 

These Spetsnaz soldiers could assist Al Qaeda terrorists in attacking crucial U.S. targets (Pink Terror). This will be done to further soften up the U.S. infrastructure. The Spetsnaz troops could also just commit the terrorist acts themselves (Red Terror).

 

I believe that these Spetsnaz soldiers are coming for only one purpose and that is to eventually commit sabotage against the USA prior to a massive ‘staged’ war. Whether it is this summer, before the 2012 elections or after the elections will not matter. What will matter is that they are going to be on U.S. Soil and that is huge. 

 

The next stage is pink terror, “when active military operations have not yet begun and there is still peace, but when some of the best spetsnaz units have already gone into action.” This leads directly to “red terror” – which is open warfare between major powers. – JR Nyquist – http://www.financialsense.com/node/277

Grey Terror

 

By JR Nyquist

5/13/04

Financial Sense

 

It is generally believed that Mohammed Atta was the leader of the 9/11 strikes against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Atta was an Egyptian, a student of architecture in Cairo and Hamburg, born on Sept. 1, 1968. His studies continued to the end of the 1990s. We are told that he was seriously religious, though he was seen drinking alcohol and playing video games at a sports bar the week before 9/11.

 

In May 2003, Capt. Vladimir Hucin, formerly with Czech intelligence (BIS), made a curious statement in front of Petr Cibulka, the head of the Right Bloc (Pravy Blok) in response to a question about Atta: “I had information that Mohammed Atta was trained in the Zastavka terrorist training camp in 1988, by Czechoslovak Communists and STB.”

 

Cibulka was not surprised by Hucin’s claim regarding Atta. According to Cibulka, al Qaeda is the child of the Communist Bloc and its rogue state allies. “[Al Qaeda] is supplied and trained by Iraq,” said Cibulka in a 2003 interview. “But the real brains behind this global terrorist campaign against the free world … is in fact the Russian GRU. Moscow fights against the United States with a hidden hand.”

 

There is no question that the FBI and the CIA, in their infinite wisdom, would dismiss Cibulka’s statement and the allegations of Capt. Hucin. The reasoning of the FBI and CIA goes something like this: People who have fought communism their whole lives are deeply committed to their views, even when communism has collapsed. Those who hate communism do not stop hating it, and their judgment is distorted by this hatred. Therefore, statements connecting today’s terrorism with “International Communism” are not to be taken seriously.

 

Perhaps the prevailing wisdom of the FBI and CIA deserves the honored place it now enjoys. On the other hand, an admission that anti-Communism can become an obsession does not automatically discredit everything anti-Communists have to say. Soviet Communism invented modern terrorism. The Communists trained Arafat, Mandela, Carlos the Jackal and others. To what end was this training?

 

There is an old book by a GRU defector who wrote under the pen name Viktor Suvorov. The book’s title is Spetsnaz: The Inside Story of the Soviet Special Forces. Chapter 15 in this book is about Spetsnaz’s role at the outset of World War III. It makes very interesting reading.

 

Russian Spetsnaz commandos are trained as paratroopers, explosives experts, terrorists and assassins. According to Suvorov, World War III will not begin with conventional military operations, or even with massed nuclear missile strikes. On page 196 he describes “a series of large and small [terrorist] operations the purpose of which is, before actual military operations begin, to weaken the enemy’s morale, create an atmosphere of suspicion, fear and uncertainty, and divert attention of the enemy’s armies and police forces to a huge number of different targets….” According to Suvorov: “The principle method employed at this stage is ‘grey terror.'” This is a kind of terror that is carried out “in the name of already existing extremist groups not connected in any way with the Soviet Union, or in the name of fictitious organizations.”

 

Suvorov claimed that “grey terror” would have a psychological warfare component. The Russian special services, he wrote, would launch a scandal parade. Dirt would be invented, created or dug up on America’s leaders, on America’s defense establishment and on America’s friends abroad. According to Suvorov, various nations would begin to distrust their leaders. The peace movement, he wrote, would make use of these scandals. “In many countries there are continual demands to make the country neutral and not to support American foreign policy, which has been discredited.” When America’s international support erodes away, explained Suvorov, the “grey terror” gathers in scope and “reaches its peak.” The next stage is pink terror, “when active military operations have not yet begun and there is still peace, but when some of the best spetsnaz units have already gone into action.” This leads directly to “red terror” – which is open warfare between major powers.

 

Perhaps it is crazy to make this suggestion: But is it possible the “grey terror” of Viktor Suvorov has begun? Are key leaders in al Qaeda paid agents of the old Communist Bloc, paving the way for “pink terror” and the “red terror” that logically follows?

 

One hesitates to accept, at face value, the statements of anti-Communists in Eastern Europe (since their statements are so grim). And yet, there is something strange about the terrorists and their war against America. What do these terrorists hope to achieve for themselves? Islam is not going to take over the United States. The Islamists have no army. They don’t even have a country that dares to openly embrace their cause.

 

Last Sunday night I received a call from an American businessman recently returned from South America. He had a strange encounter. He’d met a Russian down below the equator. This Russian thought South America was safe place to be at the moment. The businessman talked about life in South America. “Life is better in the United States,” he said. The Russian answered. “Yes, but the United States is not going to be there much longer.”

 

The Russian refused to elaborate. Perhaps he doesn’t need to.

U.S. Military leaders are sworn to defend against enemies both ‘foreign and domestic’. Are they living up to their oaths?

The U.S. Government is riddled with overt Communists that are openly preaching Communist propaganda daily as they hide behind the label Progressive. These Progressives know that they are untouchable at this point. Now, American and Russian troops will be doing ‘terrorist drills’ together ON U.S. SOIL.

Terrorist drills with the Russians? That is interesting since terrorists around the world seem to be running around with Russian made weapons in their hands. The State Dept. claimed that the War on Terror is over. So, why are these terrorist drills needed? The March Towards Socialism is Ending the ‘War on Terror’

Our military leaders should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this charade to happen. I am still against these ‘joint drills’, even if this is some type of deception for the Russians to lower their guard. Russia sells weapons via proxies to terrorists that have killed U.S. Soldiers since the Vietnam War. Someone with some guts needs to open their mouth. Allen West and Sarah Palin seem to be the only ones that have the guts to say anything.

The new #1 man from Al Qaeda, Ayman Zawahiri was trained by the Russian FSB. Notice that the War on Terror has ended now according to the State Department? So, I guess Zawahiri gets a free pass for helping to orchestrate 9/11 for Iran and Russia? The Democrats benefited very much from 9/11 as well. Think about it….

This is in response to Economic collapse and default of the Dollar trade currency status due to a rejection by the BRIC nations as they cut off export supplies to the USA while we go down in a heap due to a lack of Industrial manufacturing capacity, and so we will end up after this transition period BEGGING for a supply line from the BRIC nations and that will come with a Whole New meaning for the USA. This was all planned out carefully with the 1990s WTO Free Trade Agreements.

Re-Education Camp Manual Includes Rules On Isolating Political Prisoners

Document also describes forced labor

 

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Monday, May 7, 2012

 

A shocking U.S. Army manual that describes how “political activists,” including American citizens, are to be indoctrinated in re-education camps also includes rules on forced labor and separating political prisoners by confining them in isolation.

 

Aside from detailing how PSYOP teams will use “indoctrination programs to reduce or remove antagonistic attitudes,” as well as targeting “political activists” with indoctrination programs to provide “understanding and appreciation of U.S. policies and actions,” the manual directs political prisoners to be separated from the rest of the camp population.

 

On page 284, the manual (PDF) describes how “Malcontents, rabble-rousers, trained agitators, and political officers who may attempt to organize resistance or create disturbances within the I/R facility,” are to be confined “in isolated enclosures to deny them access to the general population.”

 

The document also makes clear that the internment facility is not only a re-education camp but also a forced labor camp. Page 277 of the manual states, “Detainees constitute a significant labor force of skilled and unskilled individuals. These individuals should be employed to the fullest extent possible in work that is needed to construct, manage, perform administrative functions for, and maintain the internment facility.” (THERE IS MORE!)

 

The Russians are coming! First joint ‘Top Gun’ drills to be held in US

http://rt.com/news/russian-american-airborne-drill-923/

 

For the first time in history, Russian and American airborne forces will hold joint drills in the US. The anti-terror exercises scheduled for May 2012 will get off to a flying start with a tactical landing operation and “terrorist” camp raid.

 

­“This is the first time such an event is being held,” Russian Airborne Forces spokesperson Col. Aleksandr Kucherenko stressed, announcing the plan. “The Russian airborne will contribute a special task group that will exercise with US special service weapons.”

 

The drills were arranged by the Russian Airborne Command and a US military delegation in Moscow last December.

 

Russian soldiers will receive preparatory training in Colorado’s Fort Carson with the US weaponry and equipment they are to use during the operation. The drills include parachuting, operation planning, reconnaissance, assault operations and evacuations by helicopter.

 

According to the exercise scenario, soldiers of the two countries will hold a tactical airborne operation, including reconnaissance of an imaginary terrorists’ camp and a raid,” Colonel Kucherenko revealed.

 

The drills will take place between May 24 and 31. But it’s not all work: on May 27, the Russian paratroopers will get a chance to unwind at a baseball game in Colorado Springs.

 

 

It is funny Obama and NATO are equipping Russia with this equipment don’t you think????

 

Russian warships to get NATO Communications Equipment
http://en.rian.ru/world/20120425/173053100.html

 

Russian warships will be equipped with NATO navigation and communications systems to improve coordination in anti-piracy missions around the world, Chief of the Russian General Staff Nikolai Makarov said on Wednesday.

 

The issue has been discussed during a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council in Brussels.

 

“We decided to install standard NATO navigation and communications systems on our warships,” Makarov said.

 

NATO warships have been patrolling the pirate-infested waters off the Somali coast since 2008, as part of Operation Ocean Shield. NATO has recently extended its mission in the Gulf of Aden and adjacent areas until 2014.

 

Russia joined the international anti-piracy mission in the region in 2008. Russian warships have successfully escorted more than 130 commercial vessels from various countries since then.

 

Task forces from the Russian Navy, usually led by Udaloy class destroyers, operate in the area on a rotating basis.

 

A task force from Russia’s Northern Fleet, led by the Udaloy class destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov, will arrive in the Gulf of Aden in the beginning of May to join the anti-piracy mission. [BRUSSELS, April 25, 2012 (RIA Novosti)]
