Ferguson, a War Center, part 1

digest comment:

Ferguson's population about 21,000, approximately 75% Black, most poor
Part 1: short chronology of media suppression, then media coverage, mostly Voice of America (VOA), lays some groundwork.
Part 2 documents the history and forces involved in Justice Dept. "Community Policing" strategic planning and tactical organizing, with military, corporate and foundation partners. Not included in these issues is deeply involved, critically important neurogenomics now dominating science, with major players Pentagon/DARPA and the NIH, now underlying and driving overall US finance capitalism in crisis fascist mode.

Michael Brown's murder was more than another white supremacist US 'justifiable homicide' history. It was a major strategic move in the US counter-revolutionary world war [GWOT] to salvage its eroding global domination. It was politically provocative, timed and organized to divide and disrupt class unity with 'race war' to 'justify' and institutionalize military occupation and deadly force against the most brutally oppressed and likely to join revolutionary class war - the one thing that potentially threatens the existence of this predatory political-economic system.
Capitalist upstart rivals are now apparently 'diplomatically' manageable, backed up with threat of USNATO.
Not genuine revolutionary wars like decades-long unbeatable Maoist-led wars in the Nepal, the Philippines and India.
US geostrategists Zbigniew Brzezinski and Henry Kissinger have long-guided policymakers how to deal with inevitable working class-oppressed nattionality resistance before it spreads as it did in the 60's-70's Black Panther Party-led l movement that brought this country as close as it has ever come to revolution. More from them in part 2.

"The Negro youth and moderate[s] must be made to understand that if they succumb to revolutionary teachings, they will be dead revolutionaries."

India: Who 'Supports' the Massive Depopulation 'Family Planning'?

To be an enemy of America can be dangerous, but to be a friend is fatal"- ,Henry A. Kissinger

India, like all surrogate state rulers, knows it. Well-rewarded comprador rulers must keep 'restive' masses in line by any means or US will ruin them & get another 'ally'/'partner'

High Hopes, Modest Expectations
9/29/14 by Aarthi Gunasekaran and Vikram Singh https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/security/news/2014/09/29/98002/h...
...With world leaders knee-deep in the unfolding crises and Americans eyeing midterm elections at home, newly elected Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is using the margins of the U.N. General Assembly to make his first official visit to the United States....and meet with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.... vitally important to the future of Indian-U.S. ties... concern about a host of issues holding back the relationship, including India’s close, historic military relationship with Russia; India’s protectionist barriers to foreign investment; and the United States’ cumbersome export-control policies. But progress has been made in all these areas. President Obama and Prime Minister Modi now have the opportunity to silence the echo chamber of skeptics by showing that they will take this partnership to the next level...

A major behind-closed-doors discussion will be the still unkillable, despite massive depopulation, Maoist revolutionary insurgency 'bilateral' national security threat' - see below

Billionaire club bid to curb overpopulation
5/24/09 http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article63503...
Some leading American billionaires met secretly May 5 to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population. Described as the Good Club by one insider, it included David Rockefeller Jr, Warren Buffett, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, David Rockefeller, Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey. Taking their cue from Gates they agreed overpopulation was a priority...a consensus emerged to back a strategy with population growth tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat.

The "AIDS/HIV" War

AIDS /HIV: ANOTHER US MEDICAL WAR
the killer impact of imperialist domination on oppressed nations and peoples

Digest: reconstructed because original issue is missing

Introducing some of the principal "AIDS DISSIDENTS". While their political analysis may not have been be anti-imperialist, their scientific brilliance, integrity, and courage dealt US imperialist a major defeat. The alleged 'AIDS/HIV'-caused illnesses are the results of savage western imperialist political-economic-military domination, rebranded 'humanitarian aid' -
the same war in soft-power 'healing' drag. US war to dominate the African continent is increasingly imperative as its major capitalist rival China's influence and investments in Africa -- without drones and genocidal 'humanitarian aid 'drug/vaccine projects.
Because there is no legitimate scientific evidence for the official "HIV=AIDS" myth, many highly respected scientists risked - and suffered to greater or lesser degrees vicious politically motivated attacks - public ridicule and professional silencing by US de-funding of their scientific research operations.

EBOLA WAR: p.2 "Ungoverned spaces "& "A Dark Winter of Ebola Terrorism'

digest:
US imperialist domination of the African continent, is an essential front of its world war (GWOT) for maintaining global rule. Its final attempt at a "comprehensive" sweep to salvage its defeats belies its strategic weakness and desperation at losing world-destroying supremacy because that will be the end of US finance capitalism based on its post WW2 '"international world order"
The deep merger of hard-soft power exposes its bipartisan ruling class dependence on the deadly 'electoral' freedom trap

"If war aims are stated which seem to be solely concerned with Anglo-American imperialism, they will offer little to people in the rest of the world. The interests of other peoples should be stressed. This would have a better propaganda effect."

AFRICA: New Obama Doctrine
6/19/12
Under President Obama, operations on the continent have accelerated far beyond the more limited interventions of the Bush years. Last year's war in Libya; a regional drone campaign with missions run out of airports and bases in Djibouti, Ethiopia, and the Indian Ocean archipelago nation of Seychelles; a flotilla of 30 ships in that ocean supporting regional operations; a multi-pronged military and CIA campaign against militants in Somalia, including intelligence operations, training for Somali agents, secret prisons, helicopter attacks, and U.S. commando raids; a massive influx of cash for counterterrorism operations across East Africa; a possible old-fashioned air war, carried out on the sly in the region using manned aircraft; tens of millions of dollars in arms for allied mercenaries and African troops; and a special ops expeditionary force (bolstered by State Department experts)... operating in Uganda, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Central African Republic (where U.S. Special Forces have a new base) only begins to scratch the surface of fast-expanding U.S. plans and activities in the region.

digest note: US 'comprehensive, integrated plan: 'ISIS' to 'unite' players in its defeated divide-conquer wars into a 'coalition' against US enemies in a deadly attempt to salvage its global rule.
Counter-revolution ("counter-terrorism") must always be US priority. But US finance capital's last survival chance is also threatened by China & Russia's restored-capitalism and its growing anti US hegemony blocs.

BREAKING NEWS
Ukraine Retracts Claim of Cease-Fire With Russia
September 3, 2014 7:01 AM EDT http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/04/world/europe/ukraine-russia.html
The office of President Petro O. Poroshenko of Ukraine said Wednesday that he and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had a similar understanding about what was needed to achieve a cease-fire in southeastern Ukraine, but retracted a statement it made earlier in the day that said the two had agreed to a “lasting cease-fire.”The initial statement, posted on the presidential website, went too far in describing the results of a telephone call between the two leaders as having reached a cease-fire, said a spokesman, noting a revised version would be posted shortly.
The presidents exchanged opinions about a cease-fire, but there was no formal agreement, said the spokesman, who did not give his name, in line with protocol

note:
If it actually existed, the US will sabotage its Ukrainian proxy's preliminary agreement to proceed with Putin's proposals for a peace plan. Or transform it into either another Putin dirty trick if not a 'west/obama' victory. A timely new 'ISIS beheading' before USNATO summit is expected to galvanize unity around US attempt to advance ITS all-in-one "ISIS crisis" GLOBAL solutions: "incentivize" other, NOT U.S., boots-on-the-ground', pre-established military "rapid response forces' around Russia to stop it, and warn China, against any further 'disruption' of the US dominated post WW2 hegemonic 'liberal world order.'
