Ben Kentish writes for IndependentNorth Korea’s ability to use nuclear weapons is increasing ‘with each passing month’, according to a former US State Department negotiator.

Robert Gallucci, previously US special envoy on North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme, said the current American approach towards North Korea was not working.

Mr Gallucci led the 1994 negotiations with the North Korean government that led to a nuclear freeze deal.

Speaking during a seminar at John Hopkins University in Washington, he said: “We could continue just as we are now. We could continue with what might be called some version of containment, where we have a sanctions regime we attempt to limit the North Korean options politically and economically.

“But…as we do contain the North, we also watch the situation get worse.

“The North Korean case is not like fine wine. It doesn‘t get better with age. With each passing month and year, we look at a nuclear weapons capability that grows qualitatively and quantitatively.

Mr Gallucci suggested the next US president should prioritise negotiations with North Korea, but said they should not offer concessions such as the end of joint military exercises with South Korea – something Pyongyang has long called for.

And he called on the US government to stop “sub-contracting” resolution of the issue to China.

He said: “We want the Chinese to move the North to the proper frame of mind and enter negotiations. But we should not subcontract this issue, the North Korea issue, to Beijing.

“So I say, cooperate with the Chinese, get them to do as much as possible, but don’t expect them to do the whole job.”

North Korea would be willing to surrender its nuclear weapons if an agreement guarantees the regime’s “survival with as much certainty as they think nuclear weapons will give them as deterrent to U.S efforts at regime change”, Mr Gallucci added.

It comes as satellite images suggest the authoritarian state could be gearing up for another nuclear weapons test.

US-based monitoring group 38 North said satellites had recorded on-going activity at Punggye-ri – North Korea’s main nuclear test site.

The country’s fifth and most recent nuclear test took place on 9th September, leading it to announce it had successfully detonated a nuclear warhead that could be mounted onto a ballistic missile.

The test caused the UN Security Council to “strongly condemn” North Korea while US President Barack Obama warned the country will face “consequences to its unlawful and dangerous actions”.

North Korea has been developing nuclear bombs since quitting the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 2003.  It claims its weapons are for “self-defence” against “the danger of nuclear war caused by the US-led imperialists”.

INTERVIEW: “Not News But Propaganda” – Tells Ex-worker of PR firm that made fake Al-Qaeda Videos For US

A former employee of the UK PR firm that was hired by the Pentagon to create fake terrorist videos in Iraq told RT that he arrived thinking he would be working with media agencies, but ended up creating materials for a secret propaganda campaign instead.

By Nerti U. Qatja@VOP_Today


RT reports: Bell Pottinger’s staff was stationed inside a highly secured US military and intelligence HQ at Camp Victory in Baghdad.

“The arrival there [in Camp Victory in Iraq] was quite a shock… very very, I guess, distressing, really… You just felt you as if you didn’t know what was going to happen,” Martin Wells, a former employee of Bell Pottinger who worked for the US military in Iraq from 2006 to 2008, told RT.

The news that the Pentagon had paid Bell Pottinger over half a billion dollars to create fake terrorist videos in Iraq hit the headlines on Sunday when it was divulged by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, which had received the information from Wells.

Wells says that he was initially told that he would be working on news.

“As it transpired, it was news, but not news as I expected. I expected it to be doing stuff for news agencies such as yourselves and Reuters. And just providing footage for them,” he said.

However, the reality turned out to be quite different from what the video editor had anticipated. Wells said that when he arrived at his workplace, he was introduced to the American intelligence staff there.

“I still at that point had no idea what I was doing, but I knew as soon as I walked through that door I certainly wasn’t doing news… Then, later as I went through… and worked out what I was actually doing, it transpired that it was essentially… a form of propaganda.”

The media was set completely abuzz when it was revealed that the Pentagon had paid Bell Pottinger $540 million for contracts from 2007 to 2011, with another contract for $120 million signed in 2006. The firm ended its work with the Pentagon in 2011.

 

Bell Pottinger is known for serving an array of controversial clients, including the Saudi government and Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s foundation.

The firm reported to the CIA, the National Security Council, and the Pentagon on the project, with a mandate to portray Al-Qaeda in a negative light and track suspected sympathizers. Critics claim, however, that the videos may have actually promoted the terrorists’ agenda instead.

The Bell Pottinger operation, which began soon after the US invasion of Iraq, was tasked with promoting “democratic elections” for the administration before moving on to more lucrative psychological and information operations.

The firm created television ads showing Al-Qaeda in a negative light, as well as content which looked as though it had come from “Arabic TV.” The videos were created to play on Real Player, which needs an internet connection to run. The CDs were embedded with a code linked to Google Analytics that allowed the military to track the IP addresses the videos were played on.

They would also craft scripts for Arabic soap operas in which characters would reject terrorism with favorable consequences. The firm also created fake Al-Qaeda propaganda videos, which were then planted by the military in homes that they raided.

Nuclear Attack: 40 Million Russians Going To Bunkers During October 4th – 7th Drill

40 Million Russians Going To Bunkers During October 4th To October 7th Drills – What Do The Russians Know That The American People Don’t Know?

Image result for Nuclear Attack: russia us

By Nerti U. Qatja@VOP_Today


All News PipeLine Reports: The recent story from Pravda tells us that Moscow, Russia is now prepared for a possible nuclear attack upon their country with enough underground bomb shelters for the entire population of the Russian capital. Telling us that 100% of the city’s population will be able to be protected as a result of new approaches to civil defense, we’re also told their bunkers are completely maintained, stocked and ready to go should they be needed due to a ‘man-made emergency or nuclear attack’.

While this recent story from the Associated Press tells us that Russia has just accused the US of nurturing ‘an aggressive nuclear strategy’ in a strongly-worded statement, this new story from the Gazeta drops a bombshell on us all, informing us that between October 4th and October 7th, a massive drill involving 40 million Russian people and about 200,000 professional rescue units will participate in a massive evacuation drill that will be going on all across the country. You can see their story translated at this Google Translator link. Every major Russian city will be involved in these drills.

While ‘evacuating’ 40 million people may only be a ‘drill’, we have to take a look at the massive amount of logistics involved to accomplish such maneuvers before we ask if this is really just a ‘drill’ afterall or something much, much more?

While Russia builds enough underground nuclear bunkers to accomodate the entire 11+ million people now living in Moscow, underground shelters in America are generally reserved for the politically well-connected (think Clinton’s, Obama’s and Bush’s) and the ‘elite’ who have enough money to build such bunkers themselves as detailed in this recent ANP story.

While this recent story over at SHTFPlan tells us about the best 3 ‘zombie apocalypse’ shelters for those not able to affordunderground shelters in the hundreds of thousands to million dollar range like the ‘super rich’ are buying up,the fact that 40 million Russians will be taking part in a massive drill unlike any drills seen before should send up a very loud and clear alarm to anybody in America still paying attention – it may soon be ‘on’.

The recent story by Kurt Nimmo over at Activist Post tells us that US State Department Spokesman John Kirby recently threatened to send Islamic terrorists into Russia to attack Russian cities, a warning that was not lost on Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova who stated “We can’t assess those statements as anything else but a call, a directive for action,” while Russian Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov added the statement by Kirby amounted to “the most frank confession by the U.S. side so far that the whole ‘opposition’ ostensibly fighting a ‘civil war’ in Syria is a U.S.-controlled international terrorist alliance.” “What makes Kirby’s statement particularly shocking is that the scale of direct U.S. influence on terrorists’ activity is global and reaches as far as Russia.”


Why would the US government under Barack Obama be providing support to the same terrorists that have declared war upon the United States, the West and have vowed to kill as many Americans as they possibly can? As Maj General Konashenkov stated, this admission by the US State Department should prove to millions of Americans that our government is sponsoring terrorism and the entire fight against ISIS is nothing but a ‘charade’ to fool the American people.

We have reported time and again on ANP that it’s quite clear the government of Barack Obama is proving a massive amount of support to the same terrorists that want to kill Americans and as this recent story from the Political Insider tells us, we now have 100% proof that Democratic candidate Clinton sold ISIS terrorists weapons as well. The story just days ago from Russian Insider tells us that with everything else now going on in the world, the US government is caught in a very tough decision: Should the US government ramp up their support of terrorist child beheaders in Syria or should they launch World War 3?

Image result for Nuclear Attack: russia us
In the recent story by Greg Hunter over at USAWatchdog featuring an interview with Trends Forecaster Gerald Celente we learn that an ‘October Surprise’ is likely still on the table and it may very well involve a huge war, though the situation in Europe with the continuing collapse of Deutsche bank ways heavily on his mind as do terror attacks here in America. As Celente has often warned us, “when all else fails, they bring us to war.”

Why would the Russian government run a drill involving 40 million Russian people evacuating to underground bunkers unless they were aware of something imminent on the horizon? Has the US government built massive underground shelters big enough to accomodate the entire population of our nation’s capital, Washington DC?

Image result for Nuclear Attack: russia us
Might all of this just be nothing at all? As we’re told in this recent story from Global Research, another Clinton presidency guarantees that everything that the ‘nwo’ wants done will get done. One of the things that guarantees is that there will be war with Russia according to the story’s author – it has been well documented that Clinton wants war with Russia for allegedly hacking the DNC and exposing the ‘Clinton crime family’s’ many myriad crimes. Should America go to war with Russia, virtually guanteeing the deaths of tens to hundeds of millions of Americans, so that the Clinton’s can continue to get away with their massive war crimes, financial crimes and crimes against humanity?

As we’ve been told again and again by Russian Insiders living here in America, if the US decides for some completely and totally insane reason to attack Russia, within a very short period of time the US would be left without: A banking system, transportation systems, an electrical grid, public utilities, an internet, communication systems and any form of operating government.Quite literally sending us back to the dark ages, we’re also warned the entire country would likely be covered in a coating of radioactive ash.

Image result for Nuclear Attack: russia us
While those same Russian Insiders also tell us that the very last thing that the Russians want is World War 3 with America as they know what that would mean, it’s clear that the mass majority of the American people are totally clueless about a possible war with Russia looming ahead of us that could lead to the extermination of upwards of 90% of us if we are attacked by a Russian EMP and our electrical grid is taken down for any extended period of time.

Would it be worth it to you, personally, for America to go to war with Russia in an effort to help coverup the murders and war crimes committed by the ‘Clinton crime family’ if it means that you no longer have nearly all of the necessities to live in modern society today? Imagine living your life without electricity, banks, transportation systems, the internet, communications and a functioning government? We’ll close before videos with this warning to the American people from Russian Insiders living here in the USA and Dmitry Orlov:

The operational abilities of the new Russian military have been most persuasively demonstrated during the recent action against ISIS, Al Nusra and other foreign-funded terrorist groups operating in Syria. A long time ago Russia had to respond to provocations by fighting land battles on her own territory, then launching a counter-invasion; but this is no longer necessary. Russia’s new weapons make retaliation instant, undetectable, unstoppable and perfectly lethal. Thus, if tomorrow a war were to break out between the US and Russia, it is guaranteed that the US would be obliterated.

At a minimum, there would no longer be an electric grid, no internet, no oil and gas pipelines, no interstate highway system, no air transportation or GPS-based navigation. Financial centers would lie in ruins. Government at every level would cease to function. US armed forces, stationed all around the globe, would no longer be resupplied. At a maximum, the entire landmass of the US would be covered by a layer of radioactive ash. We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States.

The mass majority of the American people don’t war with Russia and the Russian people clearly don’t war with America. The Russian leadership doesn’t war with America so why does US leadership want war with a country that could rapidly send us to a ‘new dark ages’ with hundreds of millions of Americans dead?

Imagine everybody that you know in the world no longer alive on the face of this Earth because of a globalists war against Russia that turns nuclear: Would it be worth it to you? It clearly would for them…they think…in their mass insanity.

EXPOSED: Pentagon Paid a British PR firm $540mn to Create Fake Terrorist Videos

The Pentagon paid a UK PR firm half a billion dollars to create fake terrorist videos in Iraq in a secret propaganda campaign exposed by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

PR firm Bell Pottinger, known for its array of controversial clients including the Saudi government and Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s foundation, worked with the US military to create the propaganda in a secretive operation.

By Nerti U. Qatja@VOP_Today


RT Reports – The firm reported to the CIA, the National Security Council and the Pentagon on the project with a mandate to portray Al-Qaeda in a negative light and track suspected sympathizers.

Both the White House and General David Petraeus, the former general who shared classified information with his mistress, signed off on the content produced by the agency.

The Bell Pottinger operation started soon after the US invasion of Iraq and was tasked with promoting the “democratic elections” for the administration before moving on to more lucrative psychological and information operations.

Former employee Martin Wells told the Bureau how he found himself working in Iraq after being hired as a video editor by Bell Pottinger. Within 48 hours, he was landing in Baghdad to edit content for secret “psychological operations” at Camp Victory.

The firm created television ads showing Al-Qaeda in a negative light as well as creating content to look as though it had come from “Arabic TV”. Crews were sent out to film bombings with low quality video. The firm would then edit it to make it look like news footage.

They would craft scripts for Arabic soap operas where characters would reject terrorism with happy consequences. The firm also created fake Al-Qaeda propaganda videos, which were then planted by the military in homes they raided.

Employees were given specific instructions to create the videos. “We need to make this style of video and we’ve got to use Al-Qaeda’s footage,” Wells was told. “We need it to be 10 minutes long, and it needs to be in this file format, and we need to encode it in this manner.”

The videos were created to play on Real Player which needs an internet connection to run. The CDs were embedded with a code linking to Google Analytics which allowed the military to track IP addresses that the videos were played on.

According to Wells, the videos were picked up in Iran, Syria and the US.

“If one, 48 hours or a week later shows up in another part of the world, then that’s the more interesting one,” Wells explained. “And that’s what they’re looking for more, because that gives you a trail.”

The Pentagon confirmed the PR firm did work for them under the Information Operations Task Force (IOTF) creating content they say was “truthful”. The firm also worked under the Joint Psychological Operations Task Force (JPOTF). The Pentagon said it could not comment on JPOTF operations.

US law prohibits the government from using propaganda on its population, hence the use of an outside firm to create the content.

Documents show the Pentagon paid $540 million to Bell Pottinger in contracts between 2007 and 2011, with another contract for $120 million in 2006. The firm ended its work with the Pentagon in 2011.

In 2009, it was reported that the Pentagon had hired controversial PR firm, The Rendon Group, to monitor the reporting of journalists embedded with the U.S. military, to assess whether they were giving “positive” coverage to its missions.

It was also revealed in 2005 that Washington based PR company the Lincoln Group had been placing articles in newspapers in Iraq which were secretly written by the US military. A Pentagon investigation cleared the group of any wrongdoing.

Donald Trump: Only Explosives Could Have Brought Down World Trade Towers on 9/11

In an interview on September 11, 2001 swaggering-real estate mogul Donald Trump and present Republican presidential candidate remarked that the World Trade Center Twin Towers were likely brought down through controlled demolition.

This prescient observation has been intentionally overlooked by major media in the wake of 9/11′s fifteenth anniversary.

screen-shot-2016-09-15-at-10-17-39-am

Many corporate news outlets chose instead to single out a off-handed comment by Trump early on in the exchange where he momentarily ‘bragged’ that he ‘owned the tallest building’ in Manhattan next to the WTC– while failing to recognize and highlight his much more important expert opinion a few moments later concerning the World Trade Center’s fate alongside those of its inhabitants.

“At one point during the nearly 10-minute interview,” Washington Post political reporter Jenna Johnson writes, “Trump mentioned that his building in the Financial District was now the tallest.

“Forty Wall St. actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was, actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest,” Trump said in an interview with WWOR-TV in New York when asked whether his building had been damaged. “And then when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second-tallest, and now it’s the tallest.”

The Huffington Post likewise took the statement out of context to carry on the now-routine Trump-bashing campaign.

“Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been widely criticized for bragging, after the collapse of the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001, that his building at 40 Wall Street was now the tallest skyscraper in lower Manhattan.”

“Not only was Trump’s boast despicable, coming as it did just hours after nearly 3,000 people lost their lives ― it was also a lie, according to architectural reports reviewed by The Huffington Post.”

The above suggests an effort to mislead and confuse political reportage in an attempt to suppress any meaningful discussion of and plea for a true investigation of the most significant historical and geopolitical event in the past half century.

Trump’s ‘boast’ took place at around the two-minute mark. Yet here is Trump’s key remark from that discussion that begin at 5:30, following the interviewer’s suggestion that explosives may have been the cause of the WTC Towers’ destruction and Trump explaining his understanding of the buildings’ architectural components:

“I happen to think they had not only a plane but bombs that exploded almost simultaneously, because I can’t imagine anything being able to go through that wall. Most buildings are built where the steel is on the inside around the elevator shaft. This one was built from the outside, which is the strongest structure you can have, and it [came down] almost just like a can of soup.”

Americans live in the ‘United States of Amnesia,’ as Michael Eric Dyson once put it, largely because of deceptive media and educational institutions, both of which airbrush history for the Inner Party, much as in  Soviet Russia or Orwell’s 1984.

In fact, Trump’s September 11, 2001 observation eerily corroborates the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth version of the World Trade Center towers free fall. Trump recognized from first hand knowledge the Towers “very strong structures” and maintained only powerful explosives could have taken them down in such a fashion. He dismissed cartoon physics and remarked that an aluminum plane could not have sliced through the steel-girded exterior.

WikiLeaks Released 1,258 Hillary Clinton’s Emails in Connection to The Iraq War

It’s been a bad week for Hillary Clinton… and it’s about to get a whole lot worse, courtesy of WikiLeaks.

Later this week, the British Chilcot report on the Iraq war will finally be published, after an exhaustive  seven year process.

The report has been a thorn in George Bush BFF, and UK PM at the time, Tony Blair. Blair was a staunch ally of Bush, and the neocon drive to illegally invade Iraq. His support for the invasion, and the lies told in the run up to the war, will be outlined in the report.

Another staunch supporter of the Iraq war was Hillary Clinton. It’s hard to find a war Clinton did not champion, and the Iraq invasion was no exception.

Thanks to WikiLeaks, the American public, and entire world, will not have to wait seven years to figure out the reasoning for why Hillary was so gung-ho to topple Saddam, and plunge Iraq into the abyss.

WikiLeaks has released 1,258 of Hillary Clinton’s emails in connection to the Iraq war and tweeted a link to their email archive from their official Twitter page.

Breitbart has more on the WikiLeaks cache of emails, and the latest Hillary debacle.

Wikileaks appears to have a substantial amount of information on Clinton, having already released a large archive of Clinton’s emails earlier in the year.

Breitbart has previously reported on Julian Assange’s claims that Google is complicit in the managing of Clintons online media campaign.

Released only a week after Bill Clinton’s meeting with Attorney General, Loretta Lynch and a day after Huma Abedins admission that Hillary Clinton had burned daily schedules, the contents of Hillary’s released emails, containing multiple interactions between Clinton and multiple white house officials, could be extremely damaging to Clinton’s current presidential campaign.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has previously stated that he has multiple leaks in store for Clinton and, as a free speech fundamentalist, believes that a Clinton presidency could be damaging.

“Of course, when she is in power…she is a problem for freedom of speech. We know what she is going to do. She made the chart for the destruction of Libya—she was involved in the process of taking the Libyan armory and sending it to Syria” said Assange in a video posted to YouTube.

With considerable criticism of Hillary’s work as Secretary of State and her recent comments expressing her regret at voting for the Iraq war, these leaked emails could be a source of insight into the presumptive Democratic nominee’s approach to foreign policy.
