Apparently the documentary evidence for this has just been declassified, but it's been commonly known for years. Here's ex CIA officer turned Peace Activist Ray McGovern to explain how the US aided Saddam Hussein's war against Iran in the 1980's, whilst turning a blind eye to his use of chemical weapons.
Two-Sided Story is a powerful documentary that charts what happened when Palestinians from a range of different religious and political backgrounds met with a group of Israelis, from similarly diverse backgrounds. The film is funny, sad and moving. Without taking sides it provides a very illuminating insight into what actually happens when people from opposing sides sit down together, listen to what the other has to say and see each other as human beings.
The film has been produced by The Parents Circle Family Forum, a charity which consists of a group of more than 500 Palestinian and Israeli families who believe that retaliation is not a useful response to violence. All of them have lost close relatives to inter-communal violence, and are determined to spare others what they have suffered. The Forum runs a wide variety of educational, social and artistic projects in Israel and the Palestinian territories and due to generous sponsorship from the Claremont Hotel, The One World Centre, and the Isle of Man Interfaith Group, 100% of the cost of a ticket will go to supporting this work.
Human rights journalist Diane Taylor who works with the charity, will be visiting the Island and after the film will lead a discussion/questions and answers session.
7:30pm, Friday 18th October, Claremont Hotel,
Loch Prom, Douglas,
Tickets £10 available from the One World Centre Shop,
Duke Street, Douglas
100% of money from ticket sales goes directly to charity

Another thing I discovered is that the concept of using the weather as a weapon, far from being science fiction, actually already happened nearly fifty years ago. In 1965 during the Vietnam War the US Military used silver iodide to cloud seed over North Vietnamese supply lines in Laos. Operation Popeye, as it was called, is estimated to have extended the monsoon season for at least an additional month. This was done with the intention of flooding the the supply lines and causing as much hindrance to the North Vietnamese as possible. It's unofficial slogan became, 'make mud not war.'
Fast forward to 1996 and the US Air Force gave us their report 'Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025', a document that discusses the potential for the future weaponization of the weather:
'In 2025, US aerospace forces can “own the weather” by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications. Such a capability offers the war fighter tools to shape the battlespace in ways never before possible. It provides opportunities to impact operations across the full spectrum of conflict and is pertinent to all possible futures. The purpose of this paper is to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather-modification system to achieve military objectives rather than to provide a detailed technical road map.
A high-risk, high-reward endeavor, weather-modification offers a dilemma not unlike the splitting of the atom. While some segments of society will always be reluctant to examine controversial issues such as weather-modification, the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril. From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary.'*
Most disturbingly the 'tremendous military capabilities' include the ability to deny fresh water and induce drought.
Even if you accept the papers claim that weather weaponization research halted after the Vietnam War (which does seem unlikely), still from the date the paper was written we are now two thirds of the way to when the US Military expects to 'own the weather'! It appears we now live in a strange world where whenever extreme weather events occur, we simply don't know if they're natural or man made, intentionally or not.

Just to balance out the line being presented by William Hague and the majority of the British media, here's Patrick Henningsen explaining why he feels it's unlikely that the Syrian Government are behind the recent alleged chemical attacks.

Quick link to a We Are Change video investigating the effects of the Dutch governments recent crackdown on cannabis, and the resulting rise in crime. Amazingly people didn't all stop buying cannabis when the government told them to, rather they just started buying it from criminals instead. Contains some dramatic footage.

Article from the Daily Mail about a mother from Manchester who has been fined £405 because her son missed a day of school nine years ago, due to headaches caused by a brain tumour. Mrs. Darilyn Rothwell has been given seven days to pay the fine, before thugs calling themselves bailiffs will be sent round to her house to force entry and steal her possessions.
On a previous post on this blog I described schools as being 'prisons for children', I would challenge anyone to explain to me how this is not the case.
Here's the earlier post, it's actually probably my favorite one so far:http://deepstatenews.blogspot.com/2013/01/prisons-for-children.html

Today is the 49th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, where then US President Lyndon Johnson completely lied to the American people about a US Navy ship being attacked in the Gulf of Tonkin, to justify initiating a genocide in Vietnam. Here's Alex Jones to explain:1
