TEHRAN (FNA)- After talks with the Taliban to end to the US ‘forever war’ were killed off by Washington last week, the Afghan militant movement is prepared to fight the “imposed” conflict for another hundred years, its chief negotiator stated.

The year-long peace process was shut down by President Donald Trump just days ahead of a formal signed agreement. The draft had even been initialed by both parties, top Taliban negotiator Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai told RT.

He added that he does not see the US decision as set in stone, however, and said the group remains committed to negotiations.

“Our stance is that there is no solution to the conflict except negotiations and except peace on the table,” Stanikzai stated, noting, “We hope that Mr. Trump rethinks his announcement and comes back to where we were.”

The talks were ostensibly called off over a Taliban car bombing that killed a US soldier stationed in Kabul last week – along with nearly a dozen Afghan civilians – with Trump abruptly cancelling a planned meeting with the militant group at Camp David. The Taliban argues their bombings are a justified response to ongoing attacks by American and Afghan forces, and insist they are defending their land from a hostile foreign occupier.

"The war was imposed on us. It is American soldiers who are in Afghanistan. It’s not our mujahedeen in Washington," he said.

Stanikzai was skeptical about the president's reason for stopping the talks, arguing it clashed with statements by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who appeared on TV the following day and bragged that the US had killed “over 1,000 Taliban” over the previous ten days, even as the negotiations progressed.

“If they can kill a thousand of us, why can we not kill one or two of them?” Stanikzai asked, adding that “this is our right. We have to defend ourselves and defend our people”.

The Taliban representative stated that Trump has failed to distinguish himself from his predecessor Barack Obama, who also attempted peace talks with the Afghan militants before changing course at the last moment. He questioned Washington’s commitment to ending what is now a 19-year-long counter-insurgency, and vowed to continue fighting as long as there is a US presence.

"We can do it for a hundred years," he added.

Only after a formal agreement is signed and American troops are pulled out of Afghanistan can the Taliban settle its differences with other Afghan political factions, including the US-backed government in Kabul, Stanikzai said, calling for “inter-Afghan talks” and a “comprehensive ceasefire”.

The Taliban delegation visited Moscow this week as part of regular meetings with Russian officials, which have continued parallel to the American talks with the militant group brokered by Qatar.

The US invaded Afghanistan in October 2001, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people in New York City and Washington, DC. US officials accused the Taliban of harboring members of Al-Qaeda, the terrorist group behind the infamous attack. The war has dragged on for nearly two decades, and has cost American taxpayers some some $877 billion dollars as of March 2019. This includes both fighting the Taliban and trying to rebuild what was left in its wake.

‘We can fight Americans for 100 years,’ Taliban tells RT after scrapped peace talks
After talks with the Taliban to end to the US ‘forever war’ were killed off by Washington last week, the Afghan militant movement is prepared to fight the “imposed” conflict for another hundred years, its chief negotiator told RT.

War is imposed on us by US, we can fight it for 100 years, Taliban tells RT after talks cut off
Talks with the Taliban to put an end to the longest of America’s forever wars were killed off by the US last week. The Afghan militant movement is prepared to fight a hundred more years, its chief negotiator told RT.

The peace negotiations between the US and the Taliban were called off by President Donald Trump days ahead of a planned signing of a formal agreement. The draft has even been initialed by both parties and Qatar, which mediated in the talks, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, who headed the Taliban’s delegation, told RT. As far as the Taliban is concerned, the US decision can be easily reversed and the agreement put into force as agreed, he said.

“We are still committed to the negotiations. Our stance is that there is no solution to the conflict except negotiations and except peace on the table. We hope that Mr. Trump rethinks his announcement and comes back to where we were,” the official said.

Trump cited an attack by the Taliban, which killed a US soldier stationed in Afghanistan, as the reason for the surprise cancellation of the talks. The militants say their attacks were well justified by attacks against them by the US and the Afghan security forces. They see the Americans as a foreign occupying force and themselves as freedom fighters and protectors of the Afghan civilians, who are injured and killed when the US attacks the Taliban, which regularly conducts terrorist attacks.

“The war was imposed on us. It is American soldiers who are in Afghanistan. It’s not our mujahedeen in Washington,” he said. He added that Trump’s justification for stopping talks clashed with statements by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who appeared on TV the following day and said the US killed “over 1,000 Taliban” over ten prior days, as negotiations were under way.

“Mr. Pompeo admitted that they have killed a thousand Taliban,” Stanikzai pointed out. “If they can kill a thousand of us, why can we not kill one or two of them? This is our right. We have to defend ourselves and defend our people.”

The Taliban representative said the Trump administration proved to be no different to that of Barack Obama, which also held peace talks with the Afghan militants before ending them at the last moment. He questioned Washington’s commitment to resolving the situation and ending what is now a 19-year-long anti-insurgency war that the US apparently cannot win through military force.

“If the American side is not willing to negotiate and they do not want peace on the table, we will be compelled to defend ourselves,” he said.

We can do it for a hundred years.

Stanikzai reiterated that only after a formal agreement is signed and US troops are pulled out of Afghanistan would the Taliban be able to settle its differences with other political forces in Afghanistan, including the US-backed government in Kabul.

“We need a practical thing. When it is signed, there will be [a] ceasefire between us and the American forces. We will give safe passage to the American forces,” he said. “When they go out, inter-Afghan talks can start and a comprehensive ceasefire and other domestic issues can be discussed.”

Taliban threatens US with jihad, seizes more land in Afghanistan after failed peace talks
The Taliban has taken over another district in Afghanistan, the second in two weeks, saying that the US will “regret” abandoning key peace talks that stalled after Donald Trump called off a much-awaited meeting with the group.

Yangi Qala, a district in Afghanistan’s northern province of Takhar, fell into the hands of Taliban fighters on Tuesday after government troops retreated over fear of greater casualties, local authorities told the media. They sent reinforcements in order to drive the Taliban out of the area, claiming that dozens of militants were killed.

But the seizure of the district, which lies close to the border of Russia’s military ally Tajikistan, comes days after the Taliban made another advance by capturing the Anar Darah neighborhood in western Afghanistan.

The news follows a recent decision by Trump to cancel a meeting with Taliban representatives at Camp David, asking the group if they are ready for the next few decades of war. The US president said he canceled the meeting after the Taliban claimed responsibility for attacks in Kabul which killed 12 people, including one US soldier, earlier in the week.

On its part, the Taliban warned that the US will suffer heavy losses for ditching the key talks, yet the takeovers seem to be a continuation of their stick-and-carrot tactics.

Later on Tuesday, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid reiterated the threat, saying that Washington will regret not getting back to the table. The Islamist group, he said, will resume jihad and fighting to end the foreign occupation of Afghanistan.

In recent years, US negotiators held several rounds of low-key talks with the militants in their political office in Doha, Qatar, providing some opening for a possible truce. But it remains to be seen if it could be reached at all, given that the Taliban frequently target local and foreign forces, sometimes taking control of important cities and locations.

Initially decimated in the post-9/11 US airstrikes and the subsequent Western intervention, the Taliban made a resurgence and hit back, gradually expanding influence in the east, west and south of the country.

Now, they control more swathes of land in Afghanistan than at any point since 2001. An interactive map by the Long War journal shows the sizeable amount of territory the Taliban hold or contest.

As the talks stalled and fighting continued, top US officials voiced pessimism over the Afghan exit strategy. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged this week that the peace process is dead “for the time being,” adding that Washington is looking for “significant commitments” from the militant group.

Yemeni Army Confirms Massive Drone Attacks on Saudi Oil Facilities
TEHRAN (FNA)- Spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces Brigadier General Yahya Saree confirmed in a statement on Saturday attacks by 10 drones on two oil facilities of Saudi Arabia's state oil giant Aramco in the country's East.

"The drone fleet targeted Abqaiq and Khurais oil refineries of Aramco company in Eastern Saudi Arabia," the statement said in the statement read out on al-Masirah news channel.

He also vowed to widen the range of attacks on Saudi Arabia, which leads a military coalition battling them in neighboring Yemen.

"These attacks are our right, and we warn the Saudis that our targets will keep expanding," Saree said.

"We have the right to strike back in retaliation for the air strikes and the targeting of our civilians for the last five years," he said.

Drones hit two oil facilities of Saudi Arabia's Aramco firm in the country's East, causing huge fires before dawn on Saturday.

Citing an interior ministry spokesperson, SPA news agency reported on Saturday the blazes at the facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais were under control.

Riyadh did not identify the source of the attack, but announced that the investigations were ongoing.

Online videos showed smoke rising above the state-owned oil giant's facility as what appeared to be gunfire could be heard in the background.

Abqaiq, 60 km (37 miles) Southwest of Dhahran in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, contains the world’s largest oil processing plant. Khurais, 190 km further Southwest, contains the country’s second largest oilfield.

It came just weeks after Yemeni forces conducted attacks on an oil field affiliated to Saudi Aramco in the East of the kingdom in retaliation for Riyadh’s war on their country. Oil facilities at Shaybah, which has the largest strategic oil reserve in Saudi Arabia near the UAE border and operated by state-oil company Saudi Aramco, were targeted by 10 Yemeni drones.

In mid-May, Yemeni soldiers, backed by allied fighters from Popular Committees, launched a major operation against the strategic oil facility in Saudi Arabia in retaliation for the Riyadh regime’s devastating military aggression and siege of the impoverished country. Following the attack, Saudi Arabia stopped pumping crude oil on the major pipeline across the country. The retaliatory attack also led to the rise of oil prices and fall of stock markets in Persian Gulf Arab countries.

The attack bears extra significance at this stage of the war because the Yemeni forces could fly armed drones so far and carry out precision strikes and then fly them back while evading all Saudi defenses on the way. The long-range drones open unlimited possibilities for Yemeni resistance forces, which have already surpassed all expectations by surviving the massive Saudi onslaught and mounted a potent response with an arsenal of ballistic missiles.

Yemen's Ansarullah movement has also warned that its recent attack on a major Saudi oil facility was the start of operations against 300 vital targets in Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The Ansarullah said its drone attack on pumping stations of the Saudi state oil company Aramco was the start of operations against 300 vital targets. The group added that other planned targets include military headquarters and facilities in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Saudi Arabia and a number of its regional allies launched a devastating campaign against Yemen in March 2015, with the aim of bringing the government of former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing the Ansarullah movement.

Despite Riyadh's claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi bombers are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures. Weddings, funerals, schools and hospitals, as well as water and electricity plants, have been targeted, killing and wounding hundreds of thousands.

The US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED) announced in late August that the total number of reported fatalities in Yemen has passed the 91,000 mark over the past four and a half years.

France, the United States, the United Kingdom and some other Western countries have faced criticisms over arms sales to the Saudi Arabia and the UAE, whose aggression against Yemen has affected 28 million people and caused what the United Nations calls “one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world". According to the world body, Yemen is suffering from the most severe famine in more than 100 years.

A UN panel has compiled a detailed report of civilian casualties caused by the Saudi military and its allies during their war against Yemen, saying the Riyadh-led coalition has used precision-guided munitions in its raids on civilian targets.

#UPDATE Fires break out at two Saudi Aramco oil facilities after they are struck by drones, the kingdom's interior ministry says, but did not specify the source of the drones http://u.afp.com/JLXw

Huge fires at Saudi Aramco oil facilities after alleged drone attacks (VIDEOS)
Massive fires have hit two Saudi Aramco oil facilities, with dramatic footage emerging online. Riyadh says the blazes were caused by drone attacks, without naming the attacker.

The state-run Saudi Press Agency said drones caused the fire at the refinery in the city of Abqaiq in the kingdom’s oil-rich Eastern Province, which Aramco describes as the world’s largest oil processing plant, as well as the blaze at the Khurais oil field, around 150km from Riyadh.

The agency did not specify the type of drones involved or name the alleged perpetrator. The fires at both sites are under control and a probe has been launched into the alleged attacks, the Saudis say.

Multiple videos, posted on social media earlier on Saturday, showed an Aramco compound engulfed in flames and thick black smoke billowing from the site.

In some footage, several loud bangs resembling the sound of explosions can be heard in the background. There were reports of over a dozen blasts rocking the facility.

Apparent sounds of gunfire can be heard on a video allegedly filmed at a parking lot across the street from the site.

On Twitter, Saudi royal court adviser Turki Alalshikh urged netizens to not fuel speculations, denouncing social media reports as “lies and rumours.”

“Praise to God, safe and secure... Abqaiq is well,” the official tweeted.

Saudi Arabia has been accusing Iran of arming and directing the Houthi rebels in civil-war torn Yemen to launch drone and rocket attacks across the kingdom’s border. In May, armed drones caused minor damage to Aramco’s two pumping stations in the Eastern Province. While the Houthis claimed responsibility for the attack, the Saudis blamed Tehran. Iranian officials denied the allegations.

Saudi Arabia has led a bombing campaign in Yemen since it intervened in 2015 to assist ousted President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi’s fight against the Houthis who control the nation’s capital, Sanaa. The campaign put the Saudis under fire from the UN and international human rights groups that have repeatedly stated that the airstrikes cause mass civilian casualties.

2019/9/8 朝から南風で蒸し暑いです。台風は9/9午前3時ころ横浜直撃のようです。
読者からお尋ねと合わせてご心配いただきました。

こんにちは、台風15号まだ大丈夫でしょうか? 暴風台風と聞いてF1の例の排気塔が倒壊したら…と考えてしまいます。無事を祈っています。

管理人の家では、午後3時半現在、雨も降らず風もそれほど強くありません。台風接近まであと12時間ほどです。
暴風でも、例の排気塔が倒壊することはないでしょう。ただ、先端が切り取られていますので、その影響で内部のものが飛び出してこなければよいがと思っています。

管理人の自宅では、午後5時を過ぎて空に雲が広がっています。気温は少し下がっていますが、屋内窓際に置いた測定器でスパイクが立っており窓開けを見送っています。2台で測定していますが、40cm程度しか離れていません。それでもこんなに反応が違います。43cpmはこれまでの最高です。




午前0時前に伊豆半島に上陸しそうですね。午前3時ころに横浜市、午前6時ころに守谷市、午前9時東海村、正午にはF1沖、その後は海上を進みそうですが、東京はフェーン現象が起きる? そりゃ暑くて困る。

東京、神奈川は、9/9午前5時〜5時半ころに線量率がピークとなりました。京都が9/8の夕方から上がりました。全般的にはそんなに上昇地域は広くないといっていいでしょうか。



2019/9/9 午前9時現在、東京電力停電情報 「ただいまサービスを停止しております」だって。

台風が去ってまたスパイクが立ち始めました。


JNN/TBS9月9日(月)15時27分
東京電力の送電線鉄塔2基が倒壊
 東京電力によりますと、千葉県君津市長石の近くにある送電線の鉄塔2基が倒壊したということです。
 2基の高さは、それぞれ57メートルと45メートルで、倒壊は台風の影響とみられるということですが、東京電力が詳しい原因を調べています。午後1時半現在で千葉県では60万軒あまりが停電しています。

千葉県で60万戸停電


2019/9/10、夜10時過ぎから発雷、そして強雨。
雷を撮影しました。タブレットパソコンで動画を撮りそれをキャプチャーしました。

右側の雷に恐れをなして撮影を切り上げました。家に入って、ブレーカーを落とそうかと思案していたら強い雨が。こんなに太い電流の流れが当たったらイチコロですよね。

今日、9/11も夜に東京近郊で発雷と強雨。

F1からまた飛んでいます。切断作業はやっていませんから、作業がなくても飛ぶということです。困るなあ。


管理人の自宅に置いた線量率測定装置がスパイクを示すことが多くなっています。千葉県北西部、それに東京都東部に計4個の測定システムが置いてあり、それらでもスパイクが立つことが多くなっていますが、圧倒的に管理人の自宅に置いたものでの出現回数が多いです。

なぜだろうと考え、調べたら管理人の自宅は東南の風が当たりやすいことに気づきました。鉾田で内陸に入った気流は鹿島灘沿いの丘陵を超えると後は高いところで標高30m。管理人の家は高層階ではありませんから、同じ団地の高層階ではもっとスパイクが発生しているはずです。

千葉県北西部、それに東京都東部にある測定ポイントのうち、集合住宅に設置してあるのは管理人の自宅のもののみ。設置場所の条件としては優れている? でも、測定装置のテストをしていたら、住宅のほぼ中央に置いたのにやはりスパイクが立ったんです。窓を少し開けていたから?

こりゃいかん。家の中に入り込んでいるということですね。

リアルタイム測定システムの基本的な受益者は設置運営者です。

気流の流れによるスパイクをとらえやすいように自宅に設置してある測定本体を屋外に出しました。そして測定を続けていますが、屋内で0.103μSv/hだったものが、0.096μSv/hと1CPM分低くなっています。

もう2時間以上継続測定していますが、スパイクは出ていません。ただ、グラフのギザキザ、振幅が大きくなっているように思います。

浪江町の測定では飛んでいるし、北寄りの風なんですけどね。


測定器を屋外に置くのと、屋内に置くのとではグラフの動きが少し違います。まだ半日ですが、グラフの振幅の中心が動きやすいです。

Juan Guaido may have some explaining to do. Photos have emerged depicting the Venezuelan opposition leader with gang members, confirmed by Colombian police to be leaders in the violent drug trafficking outfit, Los Rastrojos.

The photos first appeared in a tweet on Friday, shared by Wilfredo Canizares of the Fundacion Progresar (Progress Foundation), a Colombian NGO. They depict the US-sponsored “interim president” of Venezuela Juan Guaido posing chummily with two known drug lords, known under the aliases “The Brother,” and “The Minor.”

1. So, first things first - this report is nothing unusual for the BBC. It is riddled with the most vulgar mistruths and is catered towards the average Western consumerist vegetable. They pretend to care so much for humanity and flicker their eyelashes like a cheap hooker.

2. Its very easy to smash this report to pieces after less than a minute has passed in the segment. At 00:45 we see a familiar logo (@sams_usa
). In this older thread (https://twitter.com/O_Rich_/status/1166272519915155456) we see this logo present in Al-Qaeda held (at the time) Khan Sheikhoun.

3. So I ask the @BBC
: why is it that these US NGOs disguised as “hospitals” and “doctors” - who by the way spew the same anti-Assad rhetoric as Al Qaeda & friends - are always present in areas held by AQ? Doesn’t that “coincidence” deserve to be investigated?

4. The presenter, @sophieraworth
, who by the way should hang her head in shame, uses clever Orwellian language at the beginning of the segment - she depicts Idlib as a mish-mash of civilians and Islamist militants. This is a sneaky trick to cover both her and her boss’ ass.

5. It is evident now that using the @SyriaCivilDef
(White Helmets) for propaganda is too risky, since over time more and more proof emerged of their links to Al Qaeda. So instead @sams_usa
is being used. Strangely, this NGO is not even mentioned by name in the report.

6. The milita… sorry... “doctor” is presented as a staff member of “Atma Charity Hospital”. Here (http://en.etilaf.org/press/attacks-on-charity-hospital-in-atma.html) we see a report from the notorious Saudi-funded “Syrian Opposition Coalition”, written from Istanbul, defending this “hospital”. Very “legit”...

7. But no mention of @sams_usa
in the report. Why? "Syrian American Medical Society” doesn’t sound as organic as “_____ Charity Hospital”? People might start to wonder what the US is doing in Syria? Yes, it’s better to hide any footprints by presenting NGO stooges as “civilians”.

8. Back to the “disclaimer” at the beginning: “…opposition fighters, Islamist extremists, and civilians…”

We are really supposed to believe that "opposition fighters” and "Islamist extremists” are separate entities? Why are FSA flags in AQ-held areas?

9. Why does the map used at the beginning only have “Rebel”-held areas and “Govt”-held areas? Where do "Islamist extremists” factor in? Logically speaking, this is an admission that “rebel” actually means Al Qaeda. After all, since 2011 “moderate rebels” = good guys in MSM.

10. @sommervilletv
- whether consciously or not - helps whitewash terrorism every time he utters neoliberal catchphrases like “hospital”, “regime”, “this is the last refuge for those who oppose the government, which has brought the country to ruin”, etc.

11. Mr @sommervilletv
, why don’t you go to Khan Sheikhoun right now and interview the residents? What’s the problem? They will denounce the Nusra terrorists that occupied and pillaged their land? They will compliment President Assad? How would you spin it into pro-AQ propaganda?

12. @sommervilletv
, after exploiting the image of a child standing inside a demolished building, then shamelessly claims that the “regime” passes over coordinates to Russia, which then intentionally bombs “civilians" and “hospitals”.

13. The BBC was silent about Nusra (aka “rebels”) firing “hell cannons” at Western Aleppo, indiscriminately targeting residential areas - actual schools and hospitals. No, this doesn’t suit the BBC’s agenda, which is to unconditionally protect Al Qaeda.

14. @sommervilletv
also likes to share the propaganda of his accomplices. In the example below, we see how these “innocent” tunnels look an awful lot like the ones in Khan Sheikhoun. Today - “hospital”, tomorrow - terrorist weapons cache.

15. The @BBC
, like other presstitute agencies, are seemingly able to access Al Qaeda areas very easily. It’s as if…. they are in bed with terrorists?! There are signboards in Idlib against “democracy” and anything not Islam, yet the BBC seems to get a free pass. What gives?

16. I consider that the @BBC is a terrorist organisation, and should be recognised worldwide as such. What’s worse is that UK taxes are being used to fuel terrorism in Syria and massacre innocent civilians who refuse to bow down to Al Qaeda and its Western masters.

17. By the way, we are still waiting to know why the West allowed ISIS terrorists to leave Raqqa (towards the SAA in Deir Ezzor) untouched, something that the BBC itself reported. Russia bombing Al Qaeda = “war crimes”. The West aiding ISIS = “democracy".

18. The image below is a bit cliche now, but it is very accurate nevertheless. Whether it be Venezuela, Iran, Syria, Ukraine/Donbass, Palestine, Yemen, etc, the @bbc
shows time & time again that it is anti-human. Never believe the crocodile's tears; pull the plug on this cancer.

19. By the way, the same report is now available on the BBC website, but I don’t think non-UK IP addresses can view it. Anyway, hopefully this thread has spared the reader the pain of having a full dosage of this junk.

What I find rather odd are the locations of these 'Hospitals'; I know hospitals in developing nations to be situated near large civilian populations. This particular one is isolated & near a small farm. Very odd.

Islamic State weapons in Yemen traced back to US Government: Serbia files (part 1)

'It's a tip of an iceberg': Bulgarian journo reveals how US-purchased arms end up with ISIS in Yemen
Mortar shells shown in an Islamic State propaganda video have put a Bulgarian journalist on the scent of an alleged US-run arms shipping network supplying militants in the Middle East, she told RT in an exclusive interview.

This story began back in June, when Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists in Yemen demonstrated several Serbian-made 82mm mortar shells in their propaganda video. Independent investigative journalist, Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, believes that the deadly munitions ended up with the jihadists after going through US hands.
Tracing origins

Clearly visible on one of the shells is a mark that reads '82 mm M74HE mortar shells KV lot 04/18.' The letters KV stand for the Serbian state arms manufacturer Krusik, located in the town of Valjevo, while the digits 04/18 refer to lot 04 produced in 2018. One should not jump to any conclusions, however, as it is not the Serbs who were responsible for the shells suddenly appearing in the hands of terrorists, according to Gaytandzhieva.

A trove of "explosive" leaked documents she said she received from an "anonymous source" shows that the lot in question was part of a deal between the Serbian arms factory and a Pentagon contractor, Alliant Techsystems LLC. It was part of a purchase of more than 100,000 such shells "for the needs of the US government."

"In the shipping documentation and on the labels on the mortar shells' containers, there is a name of… the importer… that purchases the weapons on behalf of the US government," the journalist told RT, citing the documents.

"There are indications and information about a US federal contract, under which these weapons were purchased, and this is absolutely verifiable in the case of Alliant Techsystems LLC, the company, which purchased the mortar shells and this particular lot of weapons pictured in the ISIS video in Yemen."

Some leaked documents published by Gaytandzhieva do indeed mention a contract between Alliant Techsystems LLC and the Pentagon, which was allegedly aimed at supplying the Afghan National Army. "This lot was purchased under a $50 million contract between Alliant Techsystems and the US DoD for the delivery of non-standard US weapons to Afghanistan," the journalist said.

Gaytandzhieva believes, however, that this case is just the tip of the iceberg. It could be a part of a far-reaching arms supply scheme involving up to "three million pieces of weapons – rockets and mortar shells – that have been diverted either to Syria or to Yemen."
'Corporate international weapons shipment network'

The leaked documents, which include emails, internal memos, photos and correspondence between the American arms dealers and the Serbian arms factory Krusik, have helped Gaytandzhieva to "expose the existence of a secret US special command unit code-named "Task Force Smoking Gun." That unit has allegedly operated an arms depo since at least 2017, which is used in shady arms shipping operations by the US and its allies.

"I found that four private American companies were US government contractors and they were commissioned by the Pentagon to deliver non-US standard weapons to different destinations. According to the other leaked documents, I found that one of these destinations was Syria.

"This is a whole international weapons shipment network," the journalist explained to RT, adding that Saudi Arabia and the UAE are also using it for its operations alongside the US. "The scheme is using different routes and diplomatic flights diverting weapons via a third party to their final destination, which appears to be Syria or Yemen."

Gaytandzhieva said that she investigated at least "350 diplomatic flights carrying weapons for the last three years" by the same Azeri state-run company that delivered the mortar shells to Afghanistan in 2018. "They made technical landings with stays varying from a few hours to up to a day in intermediary locations without any logical reasons such as needing to refuel the planes," she wrote in a separate report investigating this particular issue.

"That means that this international weapons shipment network has never [ceased to exist] and continues [it operations] to this date."

RT has managed to independently verify parts of Gaytandzhieva's report by finding the contracts between Alliant Techsystems LLC and the Pentagon that she mentions in the US Federal Procurement Data System. It has also been established that the company has regularly worked for the US Department of Defense since at least 2016.


US Terror Syndicate
A recent investigation has uncovered explosive evidence that the US is supplying weapons to terror groups in Syria, Iraq and Yemen. The finding blows the lid sky-high on Washington’s much-vaunted claims of “fighting terrorism”.

Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva and her Arms Watch website have uncovered perhaps some of the most incriminating evidence yet linking the Pentagon to al-Qaeda*-affiliated jihadi groups across the Middle East.

In a feat of investigative reporting carried out over the past two years, Arms Watch has pieced together an entire network of covert arms dealing orchestrated by the Pentagon. The devastating implication is that such a global syndicate involving US arms contractors, American government officials acting as buyers, and the use of hundreds of civilian airliners given "diplomatic clearance" – all of these logistics must have had top-level authorization in Washington.

So when President Trump crows about "defeating terror" in Syria or fighting against "Iran-backed proxies" in Yemen, he is either a liar or he has not a clue about what his military and intel chiefs are really up to. Up to their necks in supporting terrorism on an industrial scale.

The giant gun-running scheme operates to purchase non-standard US weaponry from arms companies in the Balkans – Bulgaria, Croatia and Serbia. The cargos comprising millions of weapon pieces, including assault rifles, mortars and rockets, are usually flown to the US airbase, Al Udeid, in Qatar. From there, the arms are transported to various terrorist outfits in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.

How are the weapons tracked back from the terrorists to US government buyers?

As Arms Watch explains, the serial numbers on individual weapons recovered in hauls by the Syrian Arab Army from former militant bases show an exact match with order and lot numbers on documents that Arms Watch received from anonymous leaks. Other leaked documents (emails, passport scans) reveal US government officials purchasing inventories of weapons bearing the same serial numbers from arms companies in Bulgaria, Croatia and Serbia.

Another method of identification is a close examination of propaganda videos released by so-called Islamic State (ISIS or Daesh)* and other Al Qaeda affiliates such as Nusra Front (rebranded as Tahrir Hayat al-Sham). From the weapons displayed in the videos being handled by militants, the serial numbers can be identified and tracked back to the Balkans and the US buyers.

We are talking here about millions of weapons and tens of millions of dollars. This could not be carried out by rogue American intel agencies acting without authorization. It must have top-level clearance, perhaps even from President Trump’s national security council headed up by John Bolton.

As journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva comments: "The documents expose the biggest lie in the US foreign policy – officially fighting terrorism while secretly supporting it."

This is by no means the first time that Washington has been accused of covertly sponsoring terror groups for regime-change machinations.

In Syria, US and other NATO weaponry has been recovered over and over again in former terrorist dens. There have also been several reports of American military helicopters making secretive arms drops or transporting militants to safe havens.

Former Afghan President Hamid Karzai made damning claims in a media interview in 2017 in which he said that he was convinced US special forces were aiding and abetting the ISIS network in Afghanistan.

The Russian Ministry of Defence has also reported suspicious movement by US helicopters and arms drops to militants in Syria and Afghanistan.

However, the latest investigative findings by Arms Watch expose an international weapons supply chain to internationally proscribed terror groups – all under the direction of Washington.

The evidence cannot be clearer: the US government is arming, sponsoring and directing terror networks as a proxy force in several countries. Remember these proxies have committed unspeakable barbarities against hundreds of thousands of civilians, including decapitating women and children, across the Middle East.

That means that when the US air force is bombing countries like Iraq, Syria and Yemen (vicariously with regional allies' warplanes), Washington is really serving as the air command for terrorist ground forces.

Since the 9/11 terror attacks on the US in 2001, the world has been utterly changed by constant American warmongering. Whole countries have been demolished, civilizations desecrated, millions of civilians have been killed or maimed, millions of children orphaned, millions of refugees on the move. This astounding record of de facto criminality and state terrorism by Washington has been repeatedly justified or concealed by its claims of conducting a war on terror.

If the US is not fighting terrorism but rather actually mobilizing it and weaponizing it, as the above investigation demonstrates, then the conclusion is truly awesome.

The world is being held hostage by the biggest terror syndicate ever – which masquerades as a democratic government in Washington.

Thousands of Terrorists Flee Idlib for Turkey

Thousands of Terrorists Flee Idlib for Turkey
TEHRAN (FNA)- A large number of terrorists have fled to Turkey in cooperation with Turkish officials in recent months as gaps have been widening among terrorist groups and Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) command structure has collapsed.

The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper quoted local sources in Kharbeh al-Joz Northwest of Jisr al-Shoghour in Western Idlib as saying that over 2,000 militants have fled to Turkey after being helped by Turkish border guards since the Syrian Army kicked off its military operation on May 6.

The local sources also pointed to Turkey’s threats on increasing corridors from Turkey to Europe, and said that most of the Ankara-backed terrorists who have defected their terrorist groups have fled to the European countries via Greece.

Al-Watan also quoted sources close to Tahrir al-Sham as saying that a wave of internal differences and defection can be seen among Tahrir al-Sham commanders as they accuse each other of treason.
