Armed with paintball guns and marshmallow treats, a platoon of Israeli commandos were shocked by actual violence against them as they landed on the ship. "Wait, thought one, were is the band, where are the balloons?"
PM Netanyahu's defence of the killing of nine activists was, our troops were attacked. Well, of course they were. They gatecrashed a party and you know how Turks hate intruders. He'll get nowhere if that's the best he can come up with. But it's better than, this operation was done so stupidly, it had to have been a planned fiasco. But neither he nor any critic dare name the planner of the embarrassment.
When the first Marine who landed on the Marmara was attacked on the
spot, Admiral Marom should have changed tactics immediately. It is
hard to doubt his expertise in such simple matters, but they
continued dropping the Marines with paintball guns onto a ship which
was exploding with rage. Apparently, the Marines did not receive fire
cover from several helicopters right above them, despite being in
mortal danger. They went with mere pistols against hundreds of armed
rioters: in close combat, the rioters' knives and axes were easily
equal to Navy handguns. Someone sent the Marines to their deaths, and
one is left to ask oneself about the role of Admiral Marom, who
narrowly escaped discharge a year ago due to his tendency to frequent
strip joints, and who may be indebted to high-ranking leftists in the
establishment who saved his job.
This writer notes that "someone sent the Marines to their death" and safely blames the wrong man, Admiral Marom. He is too timid to write the obvious; Marom took orders from his superior, Defence Minister Ehud Barak. It was Barak who probably planned and certainly approved every detail of this intentional naval "fiasco." One way you can tell that he's being protected is when the military establishment starts an obvious coverup:
Yediot Ahronot's senior military analyst, Alex Fishman provided the
following Q&A in the 4 June edition relating to the commando operation that
took over the Mavi Marmara.
Q: Why weren't chains or ropes used to jam the propellers of the ship?
A: It wouldn't work. Any method that requires sending frogmen near
propellers that are running is unacceptably dangerous.
Who said anything about frogmen? This is use of obfuscation, appearing to be answering a question but actually avoiding it. Nets or shells could have been used to foul the propellers and they weren't.
Q: Why were ships simply placed to block the boat?
A: A boat can't block another ship. The only way a ship can effectively
stop another one is by ramming it.
Q: Why not ram the boat?
A: You need to hit it with a heavier ship. The Mavi Mamara might have sunk
Here is one option: The ship receives a warning shell. With lots of advanced warning, the ship knows it must shut down engines or risk a shell in its lower hull. The flotsam is then rescued. Everyone on the ship expected this and put on their life preservers. But Israel surprised them. Instead, a small platoon arrived on deck prepared to take care of a mob outnumbering them 40-1 with goodwill, tasty treats and a fun game of paintball. All because it was a better option than sinking the ship.
In 2000, Barak was the Israeli Prime Minister who went to Camp David and gave Yasir Arafat the works, even half of Jerusalem. That his plan was inexplicably turned down by Arafat doesn't mean it couldn't be revived right now. All he needs to do is force Netanyahu out with an incident so bloody and outrageous that every nation on earth condemns Israel and its leader. One publication from the other side implies that Barak cut a deal with Rahm Emmanuel that gave him the go ahead to plan the flotilla disaster:
The Israeli press confirmed that Rahm Emmanuel had a meeting with Defense Minister Ehud Barak, whose Ministry was responsible for overseeing the Commando attack on the Flotilla.
There have been reports to the effect that Rahm EmmanuelÂ would "lead a team of high octane Democratic party pro-Israel political operatives to run the campaign for the Defense Minister Ehud Barak" against Netanyahu in the next Israeli election. (Ira Glunts, Could Rahm Emanuel Help Barak Unseat Netanyahu? Palestine Chronicle, June 2, 2010)
"Barak is more of a team player than Netanyahu, and appeals to many Americans and Israelis who see Netanyahuâ€™s belligerence as an embarrassment. If Barak was elected Prime Minister and the peace process was restarted, President Obama could get the credit for the resumption of the talks."
There is an Israeli commission of inquiry that I expect will be a whitewash, but it must answer the core telling question spreading throughout the IDF and the country; Did Barak approve this operation behind the backs of the Knesset and his superior PM Netanyahu? My reading of the facts is precisely that. Which means Barak did unto Netanyahu that which, in 1982, he did unto Menachem Begin. As I recently wrote:
I learned the real facts of the Sultan Yakob massacre as told by brigade commander, Gen Avigdor Ben Gal, to the newspaper Kol Ha'ir in 1997. He set out on a jeep tour when two lower officers, took over the brigade command radio against all orders. Both would become leaders of the Labor Party; Amram Mitzna and Ehud Barak. This was not a Labor Party war; it was initiated by the newly powerful Menachem Begin and his Likud Party. If the war went well, Labor wouldn't see power again for the foreseeable future. So Barak and Mitzna were ordered to sabotage it by killing Jews. But not Labor secular Jews. Only the religious would serve their purposes. So with the maps in front of them, they deliberately sent a religious brigade to its doom.
Barak is a worm boring its way through the government. At the Herzliya Conference in 2010, he offered unilateral withdrawal
and begged the PA to assume power in Judea and Samaria. Otherwise, he warned, "Israel was in danger of becoming an apartheid nation."
Once again the Israeli public will reject any hint that their Defence minister was prepared to sacrifice the lives of their children to win political points. They have been fleeced again, under deadly attack by their own Defence Minister, and because they are not treacherous enough to order the slaughter of their own, they can't believe anyone is.
And once again as always, another Israeli Labor Party heads gets to murder with impunity.

I'm inviting you to my special newsgroup. It's been going for 4 months now and everyone on it is now loyal to it. Here are two comments sent to me:
"Barry, great stuff. Frankly, I was tired of being sent rumors, gossip and lies as news. Good filtering..."
And along the same thinking:
"At least you don't send me frauds by unnamed "experts."
I've been researching deep intelligence for nearly 20 years and over time only the most reliable sources remain. They supply me with suppressed news that may not always be right, but it's never a hoax.
We've known each other for too long for me to kid you. I ask for money to subscribe BUT only what you can afford. Most of my readers have been fair to me. If you want to try it for a while, I wont ask for any payment. If you don't like it, so be it.

Meanwhile, a taste of some of what I sent out just this week. If you like the snippets and want a diet of them, don't be shy to tell me.Â Best, Barry
Analysts question Korea torpedo incident
How is it that a submarine of a fifth-rate power was able to penetrate a U.S.-South Korean naval exercise and sink a ship that was designed for anti-submarine warfare?
Such questions are being fueled by suggestions in the South Korean and Japanese media that the naval exercise was intended to provoke the North to attack. The resulting public outcry in the South, according to this analysis, would bolster support for a conservative government in Seoul that is opposed to reconciliation efforts...

Chiggers, Sand Fleas and Scorpions!
From a Recon Marine in Afghanistan
From the Sand Pit it's freezing here.Â I'm sitting on hard, cold dirt between rocks and shrubs at the base of the Hindu Kush Mountains , along the Dar 'yoi Pomir River , watching a hole that leads to a tunnel that leads to a cave.Â Stake out, my friend, and no pizza delivery for thousands of miles.
I also glance at the area around my ass every ten to fifteen seconds to avoid another scorpion sting.Â I've actually given up battling the chiggers and sand fleas, but the scorpions give a jolt like a cattle prod.Â Hurts like a bastard..Â The antidote tastes like transmission fluid, but God bless the Marine Corps for the five vials of it in my pack.
The one truth the Taliban cannot escape is that, believe it or not, they are human beings, which means they have to eat food and drink water.Â That requires couriers and that's where an old bounty hunter like me comes in handy.Â I track the couriers, locate the tunnel entrances and storage facilities, type the info into the handheld, shoot the coordinates up to the satellite link that tells the air commanders where to drop the hardware...

Canadian Prime Minister Delivers Global Governance Plan
During the January 2010 World Economic Summit in Davos Switzerland Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the current Chairman of the G-20, presented the upcoming agenda for the G-20 and G-8 meetings to be held in Ontario in June. Many were shocked to hear this Conservative leader declare that â€œwe also know markets need governance. For the new global economy, the G-20 is what we have.â€ Harper went on to speak as an avowed Keynesian committed to a one world global economy, creating a world â€œwe have been trying to build since 1945â€.
He went on to warn the world that national self interest sovereignty must be opposed to stave off a greater crisis than the current recession. For the next several months leading up to and including the G-20 meetings,Â Stephen Harper will be attempting to convince the world to find global unity of purpose and adopt what he calls â€œEnlightened Sovereigntyâ€...
The Wayne Madsen Report for today is a blockbuster and underscores what Larry Sinclair has been maintaining for years. Wayne's report is a pay for view service and the following is a small excerpt from it.Â Wayne writes that not only is Obama gay but it names favorite clubs and a gay dating service run by Rev. Wright that Obama and another young man in the congregation used.Â The other young man was later murdered.Â According to WMR, Rahm (the boy ballet dancer) Emmanuel is also member of the gay club. Begin Excerpt "May 24, 2010 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Obama and Emanuel: members of same gay bath house club in Chicago President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago's gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city. The bath house, Man's Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicago's "grand old bathhouses." WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides lifetime memberships to paying customers and that the club's computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. However, sources close to "Man's Country" believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel. Members of Man's Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry...
Oil and Earthquakes: History Says
Engineers Have Always Known
by Mitch Battros - Earth Changes Media
In 1958, a geologist calculated that injecting fluid into the ground increases the chance of earthquakes. Thirty-one years later, another geologist has shown the reverse: pumping gas or oil out of the ground can also trigger earthquakes.
Pumping out underground crude contracts the rock in oil reservoirs and sets up large pressure changes over short distances, Paul Segall of the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif., calculates in the October GEOLOGY. Vertical contraction makes the ground above the reservoir sink, while horizontal stresses pull surrounding rock inward. If the pull becomes strong enough to shear the rock, an earthquake results.
Although geologists have reported moderate earthquakes near gas and oil fields since the 1920s and have long suspected the wells as the cause, Segall's mathematical analysis shows specifically how and where the ground slips, says geologist C. Barry Raleigh of the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Segall's ground-breaking work discloses a dirty little secret oil engineers have always known.
"This is the first time that anyone has shown in any kind of analytical way that withdrawing fluid causes earthquakes," confirms John D. Bredehoeft of the USGS.
Because most earthquakes have been moderate in magnitude, petroleum engineers probably won't change their techniques, Raleigh says. But they didn't know about BP Oil drilling 5,000 off-shore in the Gulf of Mexico...
