4/3/13 US Attacks DPRK, Strategic Target is China

Digest: US world domination pivots wherever it smells blood -- increasingly its own hemorrhaging power --so the digest will postpone more on the US/ israeli proxy /PLO/PA collaboration against Palestine and move to the deadly US and its proxy south korea provocations against the DPRK, China and Iran are the strategic targets since they, plus Syria and Russia, are the major obstacles to US hegemony -- in different ways. The US needs to divide capitalist rivals China and Russia, but also to harness their cooperation against Iran, Syria and NK which it is hellbent on destroying as nations. Wherever and how the US global terror war 'pivots' tactically, the information/surveillance war is always the linchpin.

Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era
Zbigniew Brzezinski, 1970
"The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen...millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities effectively exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason... These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieve/review by the authorities...Technology will make available to the leaders of major nations, techniques for conducting secret warfare, of which only a bare minimum of security forces need be appraised....techniques of weather modification could be employed to produce prolonged periods of drought or storm..

O-K corral regional assets
Digest commentary: Every US word and move is directed toward salvaging its failing global domination. Why was Palestine #1 stop on this regional corral -the -assets operation?

In Ensuring Israel's Qualitative Military Edge (QME see below) - the proxy whose very existence depends on the US, as President Shimon Peres publicly acknowledged - the US state explains US 'national security interests' underlie its extraordinary support. On this 'middle east pivot' it was the lynchpin to 'unite' and leverage Arab-Israeli operational 'counterterrorism' assets - Jordan and Turkey, faithful fascist feudal Arab client states, Qatar, Jordan, plus the Arab League and GCC - against sovereign nations Iran and Syria - that dare to defend their national sovereignty and directly oppose the hegemon, and are welcomed around the world building anti-USrael domination support. Not revolutionary anti-imperialists for sure, but nevertheless 'terrorist" resistance which the US global state terror war was designed to coopt or crush - but cannot, and never will, defeat.

Palestinian national liberation aspirations live on, but increasingly under USAID/WB/IMF/Soros NGO soft power 'peaceful intifada' treachery, led by its PA/PLO agents. (below). Over 60 years of genocide against the Palestinians, their heroic struggle, a universal inspiration, is the major obstacle to imperialist-zionist regional, thus global, supremacy.

Fascism is capitalism in decay,
V.I. Lenin

digest commentary:
TO EXPAND ITS WORLD DOMINATION WAR SPREADING TERROR, DESTRUCTION AND DEATH ACROSS THE GLOBE, THE GEOSTRATEGICALLY VULNERABLE CAPITALIST STATE MUST INSTITUTIONALIZE FASCISM, IN THE NAME OF 'COUNTERTERRORISM' AND 'NATIONAL SECURITY, AGAINST THE RESISTANCE IT KNOWS IS INEVITABLE AND UNBEATABLE.
ENGINEERING 'ARAB SPRING REVOLUTIONS' TO OVERTHROW ITS NO LONGER USEFUL DICTATORS AND STRENGTHEN US CONTROL, PLYING ITS DEMOCRATIC 'DISPOSITION MATRIX' IN ITS 'HUMANITARIAN' TEETH, IT MEETS DEFEAT - AND ULTIMATELY PRODUCES ITS OWN GRAVEDIGGERS, TO PARAPHRASE MARX.
CAPITALIST COUNTRIES SYRIA, IRAN, NORTH KOREA AND VENEZUELA, REFUSE TO BE DEMONIZED, THREATENED OR ATTACKED INTO SUBMISSION BY THE MURDERING BULLY.
BUT MOST URGENTLY NEEDED, AND MOST FEARED BY RULING CAPITAL, STILL MISSING IN EVERY COUNTRY, IS WORKING AND OPPRESSED CLASS REVOLUTIONARY LEADERSHIP.

President Barack Obama, the Democrat starting his second term, and his Republican opponents in Congress are locked in a long-running standoff over government spending and tax issues. Just last Friday, $85 billion in mandated government spending cuts took effect, with Obama and Republican lawmakers now sparring over the effects of the cuts on the economy and the U.S. labor market. But James Glassman, senior economist at the big JPMorgan Chase bank, said investors see favorable trends in the U.S. economy, the world's largest....
Patrick Socci, dean of N.Y. Hofstra University business school, told VOA the fact the U.S. housing market has improved and the country's central bank, the Federal Reserve, continues to pump $40 billion a month into the economy, helped buoy the stock market..and investors are overlooking negative aspects of the U.S. economy...now we’re close to 8 percent and it’s been there for quite a while I think people just get numb to it,” Socci said. The Dow index includes some of the best known U.S. companies, such household names as the world's largest energy company, Exxon Mobil, the retailing giant Wal-Mart, and Walt Disney. While other broad-based U.S. indexes, such as the Standard & Poor's 500, include the stocks of many more companies, the Dow has over decades come to symbolize the long-term success of American capitalism.

A secret legal review on the use of America's growing arsenal of cyberweapons concluded President Obama has the broad power to order a pre-emptive strike if the United States detects evidence of a major digital attack looming from abroad...as the administration moves, in the next few weeks, to approve the nation's first rules for how the military can defend, or retaliate, against cyberattack...will also govern how intelligence agencies can carry out searches of faraway computer networks for signs of potential attacks on the US and, if the president approves, attack adversaries by injecting them with destructive code - even with no declared war. The rules will be highly classified, just as those governing drone strikes have been. John O. Brennan, Mr. Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser and nominee to run the CIA, played a central role in developing the administration's policies regarding drones and cyberwarfare....US Cyber Command (CYBERCOM) and computer network warfare is one of the few parts of the military budget expected to grow...Officials said the new cyberpolicies were guided by a decade of evolution in counterterrorism policy, particularly on the division of authority between the military and the intelligence agencies in deploying cyberweapons

U.S. Says Arms Shipment Was Target as Israel Bombed Syria

JERUSALEM — Israeli warplanes carried out a strike deep inside Syrian territory on Wednesday, American officials reported, saying they believed the target was a convoy carrying sophisticated antiaircraft weaponry on the outskirts of Damascus that was intended for the Hezbollah Shiite militia in Lebanon.The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Israelis had notified the Americans about the attack...Jerusalem has long maintained a policy of silence on pre-emptive military strikes....The Syrian statement, carried by state television, said an unidentified number of Israeli jets flying below radar had hit the scientific research facility in the Damascus suburbs, killing two people and causing “huge material damage.”...
Israel’s air force chief, Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, speaking at an international space conference in Israel, said Tuesday that Syria was a prime example of “the weakening governance in neighboring countries that heralds greater exposure to hostile activity. We work every day in order to lessen the immediate threats, to create better conditions so that we will be victorious in future wars. This is a struggle in which the Air Force is a central player, from here to thousands of kilometers away.”[...]

US will deploy troops to 35 African countries in 2013

Soldiers based out of Fort Riley, Kansas’ 2nd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division will begin training in March 2013 in order to prepare for a project that will send troops to as many as 35 African nations, the AP reports. Citing a growing threat from extremist groups, including those with 'ties to al-Qaeda', the Pentagon is installing U.S. forces to prepare local troops there for any future crises as tensions escalate....DoD sources with insider knowledge told the Washington Post US troops will soon be en route to the nation of Mali in order to thwart the emerging threat of Islamic extremists, including al-Qaeda aligned insurgents. With the latest news from the Pentagon, though, Mali will be just one of many African nations hosting US troops in the coming year...

1/19/13 Mali: Mind-boggling Deja Vu: 2008-2012 Articles Merged with 2013 Articles

NB: previous year propaganda that email subscribers can see dated in purple won't stand out as clearly here, so eyeball dates closely!

The US Middle East North Africa [MENA) operation begun under GWB regime, expanded with obama administration 'secret wars' that fully merged soft & hard power, into what propaganda ''strategic non-violence experts" call necessary "smart power"... which is backfiring on US, thanks to heroic resistance, but destroying vast new parts of the world.
The MENA war reveals the limitless depths of US destruction and deceit to salvage its world domination - demonstrating again, 'if you aren't with US you're with the terrorists"
It's no news that the US global imperialist terror war rests on control of information & communications. What was news, in this corner anyway, is how this info.war includes chronology readjustment as well as content management: Below you see how previous year MENA 'news' reports (dates in purple) are seamlessly melded into 2013 articles - unintentionally exposing the breadth & depth of the US war for and in Africa.
And how consistently the melded accounts deliberately confuse and conflate the Tuareg, the main US target - (MNLA's fierce, protracted, national liberation struggle established an independent state) - with its always dependable 'al qaeda islamists'.

1/13/13 Mali in US War for African Continent

This issue shows how the US war for Africa, intensified under the Obama regime, has been executed in myriad ways and lies called 'news' in Mali specifically and other African nations.
It includes 3 general categories that overlap in realtime:
*US major media 'public diplomacy'; *USAID/Soros 'civil society' in Africa; * chronology links

Intro:
GEOPOLITICAL/ STRATEGIC CONTEXT: AFRICAN CONTINENT ESSENTIAL TO U.S. GLOBAL DOMINATION AGENDA
North African nation of Mali
In 1960 the Mali Federation became the nation of Mali
www.worldatlas.com/webimage/countrys/africa/ml.htm
Mali's location is a lynchpin in US African/MiddleEast (MENA) wars: it borders Algeria, Mauritania, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Senegal and the Inner Niger Delta is located in central Mali in the semi-arid Sahelian zone, just south of the Sahara Desert.....with important natural resources, gold, uranium, bauxites, iron, manganese, tin, copper and northern Mali has 'recently been found' rich in oil, suggesting a US attempt to engineer an 'independent' North & South Mali - as with newly created South Sudan - imposing another geographic restructuring since Mali was Western Sudan until 1960, and/or another devastating IMF 'development' restructuring.
Mali and this region is critical in US need to defeat its major capitalist rival, China, to salvage its rapidly dissipating global supremacy.

The US in the Niger Delta is a major, very related, story ... very brief detour then back to Mali
