Heartfelt Condolences to the family and citizens in South Africa on the passing away of South African leader and former President Nelson Mandela.
South Africa like the rest of the nations in the continent and the world under colonialism experienced slavery and discrimination denying the population life with dignity.
During the foreign rule in the mineral especially diamond rich nation, the occupiers treated natives with bias depriving them the right to exist let alone have fair opportunity in their homeland.
South Africa then became the epitome of apartheid with segregation and subjugation policy.
Whenever atrocities and crimes against innocent citizens reach optimum the end result leads to aggressors’ exit or authoritarianism expiration.
The foreign rulers human rights violation and violence creating hostile environment for locals stoke national sentiments to protect individual and society from further abuse.
Synonymous to most colonized nations, South Africa needed strong leadership and a patriot to inspire compatriots to rise to the occasion and free the nation from status quo.
These qualities along with deep concern for social equality and justice were the fine attributes of the leader Nelson Mandela remaining steadfast in the freedom struggle including imprisonment lasting nearly three decades not without hardships and extreme conditions exemplified dedication to just cause.
The influence of Mahatma Gandhi – the non-violence and civil disobedience pioneer eloquently protesting apartheid in South Africa promoted peaceful movement against injustice and with South Africa’s leader Nelson Mandela adopting peace in the relentless pursuit for independence led to foreign occupation conclusion.
South African leader and the first democratically elected President Nelson Mandela will be remembered for extraordinary contributions in the liberation of the country and people challenged with prejudice and disenfranchisement under foreign authority.
The former President Nelson Mandela as the leader continues to be the indomitable spirit in reviving hope to the oppressed and marginalized being the vast majority across the globe.
May God Bless the departed leader’s soul to rest in peace.
Peace to South Africa!
Peace to all!

The democratically elected government led by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra experiencing foreign powers instigated political uprising.
The opposition facing corruption charges lost 2011 national election following violent crackdown that resulted in many civilian casualties with then ruling authority maintaining unpopular policies to benefit self and selective groups in the political establishment.
Thailand politics premised on constitutional monarchy beneath military wing maneuvered to suit foreign sources agenda at national detriment.
The military coup and royal engagement in governance along with foreign interceptions has denied the people in Thailand political stability.
When global forces use political system as pawn aimed at destabilization of country and region, the citizens’ discernment is critical to avert such outcome.
The political factions aiding foreign intrusion commit treason in order to remain in power witnessed in Thailand opposition role fomenting anti-government protests and civic buildings occupation declared victory disregarding economic liability from the inappropriate conduct.
The problem is the members behind the ongoing political crises in Thailand seeking to topple government for proposals to alleviate poverty and improve economic conditions among vast majority care less about the nation considering the performance during their term and preference to stir tensions rather than peaceful resolution with incumbent administration proves the lack of commitment and ingenuity in national service.
Thailand Premier Yingluck Shinawatra accused of allowing sibling, the self-exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra to advise on political affairs while the accusers are carrying out foreign elements instructions to disrupt government activities is the irony with the organizers of anti-government rally.
The current trend among conglomerate opposed to democracy, peace and national interests is to cause political turmoil against governments attempting to address economic and social issues confronting the nation.
Thailand until recently under predecessor Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva ignored the mainstream plight due to preoccupation with holding the highest office and likewise the supporters concerned about respective power struggle within party and various posts facilitated dysfunctionality leading to continuous mass demonstration in 2010 and 2011.
Moreover having conceded to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra post election 2011, the opposition leader Abhisit Vejjajiva unsuccessful action to delegitimize incumbent in the no confidence vote past week once again confirms personal ambitions prioritized over national needs.
Thailand sharing economic woes with rest of the world deserves political viability and not obstructions misleading people towards chaos and confusion.
Besides. the negative approach against government demanding Premier Yingluck Shinawatra resignation despite comfortable win in the latest no confidence motion is yet another anti-democratic and unconstitutional practice orchestrated from outside.
The desperate entities constantly striving for geopolitical dominance are applying any tactics to deprive Thailand from political, economic and social progress.
In fact the subversion reflective in misusing people power in Thailand is to discredit genuine peace movements against proxy representation elsewhere.
Thailand electorate exercising diligence in rejecting local political complicity with anti-republic foreign influence is important in preserving national sovereignty.
Additionally, Thailand adopting true democratic setting free of regal and army imposition of rules would guarantee meaningful democracy.
The ex-Premier Thaksin Shinawatra alleged assistance providing guidance on national matter to present leadership and other contentions related to government consideration for amnesty to the former leader later withdrawn in recognition of dissent in political circle,
Notwithstanding current government measures on rice subsidy offering farmers fixed prices exceeding market rates on the crops do not justify riots and upheaval.
Any allegations on previous head of state Thaksin Shinawatra accompanied with opportunity to prove innocence in the national court of law would conform to democratic values and constitutional requirement on civil rights.
Instead politicizing these events to score mileage reveals inherent flaws in the strategy to return to power.
The status quo extension serves none and unnecessarily exacerbates population suffering wasting taxpayer resources in political hostility.
Since Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra won Parliament approval to lead the country in the latest voting process, opposition efforts to thwart peace hurt the nation at large with saboteurs eventually paying political price.
Thailand citizens are urged to show solidarity in preventing foreign backed egregious decisions contributing to political unrest in the state.
Wishing Thailand steady and stable governance dedicated to economic growth, social development and fair political representation leaving none behind in prosperity.
Peace to Thailand
Peace to all!

The Loya Jirga approval of bilateral security agreement with United States including provisions granting immunity to foreign personnel on crimes against Afghan citizens is essentially sovereignty sale for a price paid towards members support prolonging occupation in Afghanistan.
Furthermore, invitation to those individuals favoring BSA and barring the rest opposed to the treaty in Loya Jirga voting process is anything but democratic defining the principles and direction the country will be led under foreign subjugation.
United States pressure on Afghan leaderships to seal the deal despite overwhelming public protests to foreign troops presence in Afghan soil and continuous drone attacks preying on children, women and men verify status quo extension upon Afghan Parliament consensus on the controversial pact.
The illegal invasion of Afghanistan has fomented violence, proliferated narcotic production and legitimized widespread corruption denying the war torn nation stability and consequently economic and social development.
When external powers rule sovereign country imposing laws in direct violation of human rights and national constitution, the identity is lost with no recognition for native population self-determination prerogatives and territorial integrity.
The thirteen years military aggression in Afghanistan produce massive casualties on all sides, economic liabilities for both aggressors and victim nation and persistent insurgency in resistance to foreign intervention.
Afghanistan security cannot be established through imperial dominance responsible for turmoil with no desire to promote peace.
The real beneficiaries in the thirteen years quagmire are those dependent on arms and drugs profits at the local and global citizens expense knowing well that these activities claim innocent lives and target vulnerable segments depriving them of existence and life with dignity.
Afghanistan proceeding with BSA is surrender of national independence allowing occupiers to deplete natural resources and wealth shared among the self-proclaimed privileged members showing no remorse for death and destruction since military operation onset.
Besides, any nation’s authorities ignoring republic will at imperial powers behest could not be representative of the people and swearing allegiance to foreign usurpation confirm treasonous act committed with impunity.
The irony in this issue is Afghans fleeing their homeland due to foreign forces atrocities ranging from shooting rampage to rape, torture and unlawful detentions during night raids and relentless drone assaults are declined even temporary refuge on arrival in any of the invaders shores witnessed in Australian policy towards oppressed asylum seekers while the foreign powers and coalition assert authoritarianism insisting on militarization of the embattled state.
Afghanistan has choices to reject prevalent conditions and free the nation from colonization. Afghan youth and remaining society could come forward and assume control over their destiny rather than leaving the decisions to entities least concerned about Afghan lives and livelihood compromised in the contentious accord.
National freedom and personal liberty are non-negotiable and more than decade old warfare has undermined Afghan sovereignty with drones, warrantless searches of Afghan homes, prison camps without legal recourse and last but not the least declaring Afghanistan as a failed state incapable of self-governance.
Afghanistan has unique opportunity to demonstrate resilience and potential required for nation building possible with patriotism and solidarity.
Afghan history is testimony to the fact that imperialism unrealistic goals and pursuits evidently counterproductive resulting in empires collapse.
The true benefactor would exit Afghanistan in 2014 heeding to domestic call for complete withdrawal and pledge to repair and restoration costs incurred in the aftermath of foreign interference that could lead to long overdue economic progress.
Best Wishes to Afghan citizens in the achievement of peace and fair political representation dedicated to national defense, equality and prosperity.
Peace to Afghanistan!
Peace to all!

The nuclear deal between P5 + 1 viz. United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany and Iran recognizing Iran’s nuclear enrichment rights with no new sanctions regarded as the preliminary step towards nuclear standoff resolution.
Although P5 + 1 initial measure could ease unnecessary tensions and unwanted provocations,
The fact of the matter is IAEA and UN reports along with United States and Israel’s military as well as intelligence authorities have found no evidence in the alleged Iran’s advanced nuclear activity.
Iran as signatory to Non Proliferation Treaty maintains the nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and accordingly reserves such opportunity.
Nonetheless the existing economic embargo and financial restrictions on Iran based on unsubstantiated claims hurt P5 + 1 credibility with intentions to sustain pressure limiting nuclear enhancement.
The truth is the individual and collective P5 + 1 nuclear status in the absence of similar inspections and verifications on their stockpiles endanger global stability and security.
Unless there is acknowledgment among P5 + 1 to this effect, the discriminatory policy targeting nations like Iran and North Korea with crippling sanctions only promotes exceptionalism allowing major nuclear powers to accelerate accumulation barring accountability.
United States, Britain and Israel use of nuclear weapons and components arguably catastrophic and yet P5 + 1 non-compliance considering legacy and prevalent geopolitical dominance prolonging illegal invasion and occupation of foreign land remains existential threat to humanity at large.
Hence, P5 +1 leading the rest of the world in nuclear disarmament would deliver meaningful outcome on nuclear talks rather than intense negotiations with Iran – the non-nuclear member of NPT pledged to peaceful cause.
Besides imperial powers aggression not excluding potential nuclear warfare in the all options are on the table rhetoric cannot be ignored with preference for volatility rejecting peace and democracy anywhere.
Additionally, Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear accidents, United States nuclear sites leakage and radioactive waste contamination of rivers along with Russia’s experience in series of fire incidents involving atomic submarines are some of many environment disasters harming life.
The Russian atomic powered submarine Tomsk fitted with two nuclear reactors caught on fire near Vladivostok in September 2013 and previously in December 2011Yekaterinburg carrying nuclear missiles on board engulfed in flames in northwestern Russia preceded by the Kursk nuclear submarine explosion on sea claiming 118 seamen lives in August 2000 serve as reminders on nuclear hazards in the contemporary setting.
Further, the nuclear states ICBM and diverse capability testing in the ocean increases vulnerability to ecological damage leading to planet deterioration.
The unanimous decision to renounce nuclear ambitions and proliferation with enactment of international laws enforced without exceptions is the immediate priority to alleviate constant risks from nuclear related ramifications.
Failure to change course from nuclearization to nuclear free zone could precipitate irreversible consequences with pervasive impact.
Earth protection is directly linked with removal of nuclear arsenal and other weapons of mass destruction. The P5 + 1 submission to nuclear and WMD renunciation given the substantial inventory in possession would eliminate nuclear pursuits in the foreseeable future.
Hopefully reason and reality would guide choices resulting in universal safety and survivability.
Peace to all!

The western and regional coalition deployed terror networks use of chemical weapons in Syria targeted civilians and Syrian defense force since crises onset.
Although the facts based evidences implicate Saudi Arabia as the provider with United States and western partners knowledge and consent in the chemical weapons attack,
Washington and Moscow deal on this issue commissioned Syrian government for disarmament and not Saudi Arabia, Israel, United States or the terror operatives in possession of the arsenal until now.
Turkish authorities apprehended al-Nusra Front terrorists found with sarin nerve gas generously used against innocent people in Syria. The earlier and latest UN team reports along with Russian independent inquiry confirmed terror groups’ engagement in WMD resulting in Syrian massacre on each occasion.
Yet, Washington and Moscow pact on Syrian CW expedited the Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and UN agency inspection and disposal of Syria’s stockpiles again ignoring western and regional sponsors WMD status despite their direct involvement in the genocide.
Washington threats with military intervention against Syria under WMD pretext had no credibility and accordingly confronted domestic and international dissent considering Iraq experience on world watch persists in terms of continuous unrest and bombings producing casualties on all sides notwithstanding economic liability for United States and western alliance.
Furthermore, Washington military option would have led to political upheaval for the administration and congress given public dissatisfaction and disapproval of overall performance.
Meanwhile Israel’s wish list comprising dismantling Syria’s biological inventory diligently complied with Washington and Moscow diplomatic maneuver optimizing Russia and Syria relations for swift and smooth removal of chemical agents from Syria leaving Israel, Saudi Arabia and other aggressors WMD intact regardless of legacy.
With no preconditions on Syria WMD surrender, Washington and Moscow bilateral enforcement on Syria is a decisive victory for Israel having been exempted from such requirement irrespective of proven track record on WMD abuse.
Not surprisingly, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during recent visit to Moscow commending the success in disarming Syria’s chemical storage urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to apply similar strategy with Iran’s nuclear program.
In the absence of immediate ceasefire preventing loss of lives and infrastructure destruction including lifting economic sanctions in reciprocation to Syria’s CW renunciation,
The prevalent situation with procrastination on Geneva 2 conference exacerbates Syrian population suffering along side facilitating contagion effect on Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt…aimed at regional destabilization.
International rules set up for selective imposition on law abiding states while granting impunity to nations renowned for violations on general standards promotes inequality and injustice endangering global peace and security.
The contradictory practice lacking in fairness legitimizes illegality misleading the world with discriminatory policy and exceptionalism.
Life sustenance possible only upon universal implementation and adherence in WMD matter currently on the reverse trend with proliferation among nuclear powers excluded from any verification and accountability.
Finally, terminating terrorism with funding prohibition and arms embargo would exemplify sincere commitment towards peaceful resolution of Syrian turmoil.
Failure to proceed with Geneva 2 accord would clarify otherwise.
Wishing Syria triumph in purging terror.
Peace to Syria!
Peace to all!

United States troops withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2014 is negotiated through bilateral security agreement (BSA) for extension beyond scheduled date.
The pact includes controversial provisions such as grand immunity to foreign forces on crimes against Afghan citizens and nightly raids of Afghan homes without warning and warrants involving rape, killings and unprecedented violence towards Afghan people.
United States, NATO and foreign alliance illegal invasion and occupation of Afghanistan using 9/11 as pretext while sparing Israel and Saudi Arabia behind September 11 attack with then U.S. administration and intelligence committee complicity evidently a major political and military debacle having learned nothing from previous experience.
Afghanistan war into thirteenth year since military intervention in October 2001 claimed thousands of innocent lives in that country and neighboring Pakistan as well as armed personnel especially United States and Britain sustaining heavy losses and yet all casualties dismissed as collateral damages in the imperialistic quest unheeding ground reality.
The so-called war on terror evolving into terrorizing Afghan children, women and men regardless of age with drone attacks, intrusion conducting searches in Afghan houses at odd hours, detention of young Afghans in Bagram prison and centers run by western allies – Britain, Germany and Australia has reached a crescendo in foreign aggression prompting Taliban retaliation both ignoring civilian deaths in the war ravaged nation.
United States, Britain and coalition defense force misconduct ranging from shooting spree of Afghan population, burning holy Quran to desecration of deceased Afghans not regarded as crimes in the security arrangement despite the incidents constituting violation of national and international laws not barring human rights abuse in the typical civilized world.
On the economic front, the imperial powers tradition to destroy culture and social fabric maintained with poppy cultivation leaving nearly 1.5 million citizens addicted to drugs and those promoting narcotic trade profiteering from Afghan and rest of the world destruction due to contraband distribution in open and black markets ruining more lives to benefit self-proclaimed privileged members parasitic existence.
Afghanistan denied of economic growth also corrupted with foreign occupiers bribery to stifle nation building and accordingly declared a failed state lacking potential for self-governance justifying subjugation under colonial entity.
Reiterating the fact on corruption causing human suffering worldwide, the foreign political apparatus subservient to oligarchy and imperial era remnants care less about citizens anywhere whether domestic or abroad enforcing agenda prolonging status quo.
Afghan Loya Jirga representing tribal and rural community along with Parliamentary members entrusted with responsibility to cast votes on citizens behalf in accepting or rejecting deal with United States have unique opportunity to demonstrate national loyalty in declining monetary incentives from foreign and local authorities engaged in swaying decisions to Afghanistan detriment.
The elders from Loya Jirga and people representatives in Parliament are at crossroads to make political history honoring public opinion on BSA i.e. overwhelmingly in opposition to foreign presence on Afghan soil.
They bear collective responsibility in arriving at consensus that could liberate Afghanistan from imperial dominance and end foreign extension bringing relief to Afghans in the endurance of unlawful drone assaults and nightmare attributed to midnight ransacking of Afghan humble dwellings carried out with no regrets or remorse.
As for Taliban containment, United States and NATO sponsored terrorism in Libya, Iraq, Mali and now Syria hiring al-Qaeda and affiliates not excluding Taliban as allies ironically are adversaries in Afghanistan to perpetuate militarization of the nation.
Imperialism ascension and expansion in Afghanistan resulted in empires collapse providing valuable lessons on greed motivated violence with inevitable impact on the source.
Besides, wasting tax dollars in trillions on Afghanistan and Iraq wars arguably counterproductive considering ill consequences on the western and global economy.
The only beneficiaries could perhaps be drone manufacturers and investors seeking perennial harvest from heroin production discarding self-deterioration in the illusive pursuit for geopolitical monopoly.
Afghanistan government and heads of tribal groups rising to the occasion in recognition of Afghan will on BSA calling for unconditional and complete removal of all foreign deployment is the only alternative to reclaim Afghanistan freedom.
The concessions in this regard consenting to imperialistic aspirations would mean surrender of sovereignty and sacrificing Afghan future with irreversible outcome.
Hence, Afghan youths and others in civil society persistence to free Afghanistan could be exemplified in reminding Loya Jirga leaders and Parliament members not to compromise on Afghanistan territorial integrity and national identity in the critical decision making process.
Nations have choices for resistance or retention of vassal statehood subscribing to foreign feudalism.
Choosing former option would be restoring personal and national independence.
Contrarily, the latter is submission of destiny to authoritarianism.
Hopefully wisdom and patriotism would guide Afghanistan in the establishment of peace, stability and justice necessary for pervasive prosperity.
Best Wishes to Afghan citizens in republic empowerment.
Peace to Afghanistan!
Peace to all!

The Syrian crises into third year continues to consume innocent lives with unabated destruction from western powers and local allies sponsored terrorism aimed at national and regional destabilization.
Syria compliance with chemical weapons disarmament per Washington and Moscow agreement provides basis to expedite Geneva 2 Conference without procrastination or false pretexts to protect citizens from foreign terror.
The western powers especially the United States and allies viz. Israel and Saudi Arabia reliance on unsubstantiated claims to deter political solution on Syria confirms the lack of respect for life and humanitarian plight inflicted on Syrian people.
Neither Saudi Arabia nor Israel and United States including other western forces have any legitimacy to initiate demands given the direct involvement as sponsors, facilitators and financiers of terror networks in Syria and throughout Middle East as well as the rest of the world.
Syria’s cooperation with UN and Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) evidently sets precedence for major WMD stockpile holders such as United States, Israel, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China…to follow suit that would then authenticate effort to save humanity from mass destruction considering the nations legacy on invasion of foreign land notwithstanding nuclear status never brought to independent verification and inspection.
The preconditions from Saudi Arabia and western nominee Syrian National Coalition representing al-Qaeda and al-Nusra Front in Syria calling for weapons supply and Syrian government removal from office clarify serious intentions to proceed with carnage much to self-detriment.
Geneva 2 peace talks is the way forward to end foreign funded and armed conflict in Syria now affecting neighboring states like Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey, Egypt and Jordan.
Any delay in scheduling the event would exacerbate Syrian population suffering with alarming UNHCR reports on citizens displacement reaching approximately 9 million and the nearly three year old proxy war costing Syrian economy more than $100 billion due to deliberate damages to key infrastructure not sparing schools, university campuses, day care centers, hospitals, religious holy sites and several public premises since conflict onset.
Accordingly terminating violence with ceasefire is the immediate priority that would demonstrate western powers sincerity and commitment towards democracy, human rights and peaceful resolution.
Organizing Geneva 2 summit similar to initiatives over Syria’s biological inventory even though the accusers were proved to be behind every chemical attack in Syria is necessary to avert turmoil expansion already experienced in the Middle East.
The participants unconditional pledge to peace plan in recognition of Syrian sovereignty and self-determination rights during Geneva 2 accord alongside lifting economic sanctions against innocent citizens in Syria – the real victims in the foreign imposed warfare are fundamental requirements in promoting viable strategy that guarantees political stability.
Failure to implement peace proposal beginning with arms embargo and withdrawal of aggression only escalates tension and casualties leading to pervasive misery.
The global solidarity urging the nations leaderships responsible for Syrian unrest to bring terror operations to conclusion is critical in addition to holding the perpetrators behind crimes against humanity accountable.
Wishing Syria success in nation building with a promising future.
Peace to all!

Since the illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003, violence continues with weapons influx proliferating arms race among UNSC permanent powers competing against one another through delivery to terror networks via partners in the region and the other directly to government enabling the real beneficiary – defense industry financial gains from innocent blood.
Iraq has been earmarked for destabilization to rein control over oil reserves with imperialism historic reliance on sedition for infiltration.
Sectarianism is the means to prolong unrest in society debilitating government and economy for foreign dominance.
United States allies – Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey along with U.S. redeployed armed personnel, private contractors as well as intelligence agents sponsored terrorism in Iraq is to sabotage national security for political instability leading to proxy government installation.
Iraqi citizens solidarity in eliminating terror and external intervention with expulsion of foreign operatives would contain bloodshed in the country.
The northern Iraqi territory apportioned as Kurdistan primarily set up for easy access to oil enriched territory with a proposal to transmigrate PKK led Kurdish demography from Turkey to Iraq disregarding Iraqi central government objection to such interference.
On human rights violation – United States and Britain use of depleted uranium against civilians in Fallujah, Iraq absolved of responsibility while the victims and families not provided monetary compensation with perpetrators of heinous crimes against Iraqis granted immunity in the respective nations besides ICC obliviousness in international domain.
Furthermore, the atrocities committed in Iraq during U.S. and coalition military aggression shielded and suppressed from accountability denying people justice with the trend continued in arbitrary drone attacks and deregulation of arms industry perhaps to achieve global powers depopulation agenda.
Iraq rocked with explosions and bombings preventing normal existence is to generate perception on foreign presence as the only reliable security even though outside intrusion for mass subjugation remains the main source behind human suffering in the country, region and worldwide.
The destruction of Iraq designed to split the nation similar to Libya allowing shadow powers exploitation.
Strangely, the terror masters failure to acknowledge inevitable ramifications affecting them sooner than later despite experience in Libya confirms the myopic policy on involvements in foreign land jeopardizing own safety and credibility.
Iraqi resilience demonstrated in national unity and solemn pledge to purge terrorism could thwart foreign instigation in the country. The unanimous representation would exemplify civilian rejection of criminal activities facilitated with plutocracy extensive support to terror networks undermining sovereignty.
Again, the response to foreign powers supremacy syndrome posing existential threat to humanity at large lies in national awakening to defend territorial integrity and self-determination rights persistently under assault to establish governance subservient to self-proclaimed privileged class consuming world resources for personal wealth accumulation lasting over generations defying contentment.
Unless arms trade driven profiteering to boost economy at the expense of weak and vulnerable citizens around the world desist alongside universal nuclear and WMD disarmament, the precipitous decline of major powers and cohorts responsible for human plight imminent in the near future.
Iraq citizens’ patriotism rekindling spirit like the brilliant sun energizing life dispels darkness within and around guarantee sustainability.
Peace to Iraq!

The so-called government shut down in the United States with leaderships in the executive and legislative branch in irreconcilable position merit fair evaluation considering the impressive congressional bipartisanship without Presidential veto threat on issues related to Wall Street, AIPAC and warfare funding including sponsoring terrorism up until now delivered to the respective proponents satisfaction.
However, the prevalent choreographed standoff attributed to Tea Party – a political faction in public perception and otherwise a smokescreen for subversion and deflection from actuality allowing real contributors and participants behind manufactured crises to advance the agenda.
Post 9/11 – In the false flag event the United States mainstream was initially targeted producing massive casualties and subsequently the unprecedented terror act used as premise for civil rights infringement introducing Patriot Act, FISA, NSA, ACTA and NDAA for subjugation en masse.
The paradigm shift in the transfer of power from congress to the executive branch also transpired following 9/11 facilitating excess Presidential authority that led to institutionalizing unlawful detentions in Guantanamo Bay, legitimized renditions with secret prison camps overseas accompanied by torture not barring water boarding and the unabated drone attacks exponentially risen under the current administration.
United States constitution irrelevance is evident in the privately owned Federal Reserve control of money supply and monetary policy with immunity from congressional or independent audit and accountability despite implications regarding unaccounted multi-trillion dollars of tax payer funds from national treasury.
Accordingly the constitutional law increasingly discarded in all three branches of the government.
Having rendered the constitution redundant, the forces espousing global dominance are in the process of eliminating people from governance and since congress members are elected to represent the electorate – the congressional dismal performance with approval rating at 5% provides opportunity to further empower Presidency under special and foreign interests management alienating citizens in national legislation.
The political system departure from democracy exemplified in the incumbent administration war against whistle blowers,
The NSA surveillance legalized by state appointed court shrouded in secrecy defying transparency,
The office of Presidency exercising extra judicial executions in recent years,
The congressional subpoenas disregarded in Benghazi investigation,
The distortion of facts and falsifying reports for congress authorization on military intervention and,
Last but not the least, the NDAA enactment enabling government predisposition against United States citizens as potential terror suspects without probable cause for trial under military tribunal denying them due legal course alludes to martial law with commander-in-chief as the supreme authority.
The prolonged stalemate generating the impression that all sides agree to disagree indefinitely when the same establishment function in perfect harmony to appease specific sources clarifies the existing gridlock as political catharsis declining republic will and significance in the expeditious transformation from civilian representation to exclusive loyalty to anti-democratic plutocracy.
Whenever checks and balances to curtail abuse of power rejected, such responses endanger national identity and independent status.
The solution to the crises is for citizens across the spectrum to proclaim sovereignty in restoring constitution guided government emphasizing the right to withhold federal tax payments upon the executive and legislative leaderships failure to reach amicable settlement obligatory on them to mitigate losses in the economic sector and national credibility.
Finally, United States political, economic and social recovery perhaps possible with renouncing NSA activity and disenfranchisement of the Federal Reserve as the Central Bank leading to moral renaissance.
Best Wishes to United States citizenry in the successful revival of the government of the people, by the people and for the people reflecting meaningful and genuine democracy.
Peace to all!

The immemorial false flag 9/11 event in the United States to implement Project for New American Century targeting nations including regime change agenda on non-cooperative governments commenced with illegal invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001.
United States and NATO aggression against Afghanistan into thirteenth year has claimed scores of lives on all sides especially Afghan population killed on the ground through U.S. and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) night raids and aerial drone attacks as well as the prolonged occupation fomented militancy using locals in resistance to foreign troops presence.
On the economic standpoint, the 13 years warfare has cost U.S. and allies taxpayers in trillions leaving them with mounting debt and western governments flair for austerity directed at citizens lifeline programs and services offset stimulus via consumer spending stunting required growth.
Meanwhile, the western nations defense budget and funding towards wars ever increasing, there is no inclination for complete withdrawal facilitating arms and finance industry profiteering from incessant turmoil.
Afghanistan on the other hand continues to suffer in terms of economic, political and social progress with corruption and violence disrupting stability necessary to overcome various challenges confronting the war torn nation.
Western involvement in Afghanistan maintaining poppy production accelerated weapons trade and distribution to factions perpetuating combat situation used in justifying the requirement for permanent military base undermining national sovereignty.
As for western training of Afghan national army and other contingencies – the futile exercise apparently causing major rift between domestic and foreign brigades evident in American as well as British soldiers shooting rampage responded with Afghani member attack on U.S and NATO convoy escalating tension in the war fatigued country.
Furthermore, United States engagement with Taliban and al-Qaeda in the region is rather paradoxical since they are declared enemies in Afghanistan and allies in Syria.
Pakistan initiated talks between United States and Afghanistan Taliban in Doha, Qatar prompted the militant group to assert the representation as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan with a separate flag providing the basis for Kabul government and Afghan Peace Council to reject the controversial and unconstitutional disposition.
Afghanistan quagmire emanating from foreign intrusion for geopolitical dominance at the expense of Afghan misery has reached a crescendo.
The ramifications are not only limited to Afghan victims but also experienced by the aggressors in sustaining economic liabilities and armed forces casualties thus far.
Historically, Britain, the former Soviet Union and subsequently the United States and NATO colonized Afghanistan until now survived the worst conditions demonstrating Afghan resolve to defend territorial integrity.
The external powers destructive course promoting narcotic cultivation and using the territory for ammunition stockpiles experimentation ignoring civilian deaths is the reason behind deterrence to foreign extension of stay beyond 2014.
In the backdrop of devastation and deterioration in U.S. and ISAF troops morale, the atrocities committed with impunity arguably remain the bone of contention in the ongoing discussion on bilateral security agreement (BSA).
Afghanistan rural elders and tribal leaders in the Loya Jirga and Afghan national assembly along with entire society share responsibility to protect the nation and citizens from foreign abuse expected to evolve into pervasive subjugation upon granting indefinite military deployment regardless of size and intended purpose.
Any nation that allows foreign establishment in political, economic and military affairs against national and republic interest essentially surrender statehood and individual freedom besides the precedence in violation of sovereign duty to safeguard independence.
Afghanistan declining status quo seeking unconditional and comprehensive withdrawal of all foreign entities not barring intelligence agents as overt and covert operatives would decisively set the stage for national reconciliation amongst segments legitimately in opposition to outside usurpation.
Taliban energized from Saudi Arabia funded elements in neighboring Pakistan renouncing terror and fundamentalism with respect for Afghan compatriots and women in particular would exemplify pledge to Afghan liberation currently in the process of submission when national freedom should be non-negotiable upholding the inalienable right of all to be free.
Afghanistan restoring viable governance at all levels nationwide eliminating foreign and regional influence for vested prospects and strategic gains are the cornerstone in the emergence as a formidable state meeting self-sufficiency and reliability in resolving crises.
The leaders and people in Afghanistan are at crossroads to rescue the nation from chaos and persistent bloodshed affecting the social fabric of the present and future generation.
Afghanistan has unique opportunity to disinherit the identity as a failed state due to western policy premised on supremacy concept despite overwhelming Afghan sentiment expressing persona non grata to such enforcement.
The proof of Afghanistan valor and resilience is available in national legacy having thwarted perennial colonization not to mention the fate of empires viz. Britain and ex-Soviet Union dissipation following the misadventure.
Afghanistan can once again rise to the occasion in solidarity and assume control over national safety and other matter without dependency on powers responsible for economic debilitation and destruction of their land.
Wishing the heroic citizens of Afghanistan safe passage to peace with renewed hope for republic rule.
Peace to Afghanistan!
Peace to all!
