4/9/14 Not in a Heartbeat

Why such muted US media reports on the massive escalation of US information/communications/surveillance war?
4/9/14/ NYT Experts Find a Door Ajar in an Internet Security Method Thought Safe ...dubbed the Heartbeat bug....

Encryption 'heartbleed' bug leaves two thirds of web traffic exposed
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2599896/Security-alert-we...
The vulnerability was found by Google researchers in the OpenSSL cryptographic library believed to be used by roughly two-thirds of all websites on the Internet and is part of the most common server software in use...The flaw was introduced in OpenSSL in December 2011, and was been 'in the wild' until yesterday, when a new version fixing the flaw was released....
The problem was uncovered by a team of researchers from Google Security and ***Codenomicon. Research by analytics firm Netcraft says almost 500,000 websites could be affected.
'The serious overrun vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library affects around 17% of SSL web servers,' it says.Its research found Twitter, GitHub, Yahoo, Tumblr, Steam, Flickr, HypoVereinsbank, PostFinance, Regents Bank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, and the anonymous search engine DuckDuckGo are all affected....
The vulnerability was dubbed the Heartbleed Bug because it was discovered 'in the OpenSSL's implementation of the TLS/DTLS (transport layer security protocols) heartbeat extension (RFC6520),' the team said.'This bug has left large amount of private keys and other secrets exposed to the Internet. Considering the long exposure, ease of exploitation and attacks leaving no trace this exposure should be taken seriously.'

"Putin is effectively rejecting the international order established after the collapse of the Soviet Union"
Specialists say this would not be another Cold War, which was a global contest of ideology pitting capitalism versus communism...Putin positions himself as leader of anti-American sentiment, but it is rooted in Russian nationalism rather than Marxist philosophy, and his main focus is on his own neighborhood...“It won’t be exactly like the Cold War because it won’t be a struggle for control of the world...”..Andrew C. Kuchins, Center for Strategic and International Studies director of Russian studies. “I have a really hard time imagining getting back anytime soon, if ever, while Putin is in power, to where the U.S.-Russia relationship was.”..

digest:
The actual 370 flight plan is revealed below, in context. It's also a basic primer on US 'smart power' operations in the world war that was greenlighted by 911 to "collaboratively" restructure the US dominated post-WW2 'new world order' it can no longer rule solo. Now Obama coundelor, Zbigniew Brzezinski geostrategically theorized an analogue (see his Strategic Vision) to his earlier guides for 'total tyranny' global domination (see previous digest issue).
Future digest issues will explore forces, rival-capitalist blocs led by China & Russia, heroic anti-imperialist occupation fighters and revolutionary groups - all referred in "if you aren't with us, you're with the terrorist". P.S. the website search function will get you - and any you share it with - over 10 years of critical information so urgently needed.

MH370 picture exclusive: Pilot wears anti-government slogan t-shirt amid fears he hijacked missing jet

The pilot, Capt Zaharie, father-of-three, was a fervent supporter of Anwar Ibrahim - jailed for homosexuality hours before the Malaysia Airways jet disappeared. The pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is pictured in a T-shirt with "Democracy is Dead" slogan as fears emerge he could have hijacked the plane as an anti-government protest....On Twitter and YouTube he backed human rights groups and campaigners for internet freedom in Malaysia... The slogan on his T-shirt, as he poses with his pal Peter, is dated May 5, 2013 - the date of the country's elections which led to violent protests against alleged poll fraud. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim called activists on to the streets and Capt Zaharie "liked" YouTube videos posted by Ibrahim....

3/15/14 What's Behind US Maneuvers Against Russia & China?

Rise & Fall of history's deadliest 'new world order' dictatorship:
One glaring sign of US weakness and desperation is the hysterical, changing-minute-by-minute, 360 degree lies, projecting US-sponsored terror onto its recipients. Desperation apparently makes them seriously overate the success of their information war control and mass dumbification, or they missed the recent Gallup-Pew poll showing the majority of the world considers the US the greatest threat to world peace, severely misreading the 'balance of forces' - or believing their own 'public diplomacy/strategic communications?

China & Russia, 'not permitted' capitalist rivals, are at the critical center of the rise & fall of finance capital's world destruction to save its political-economic system's world rule.

More will follow, on the current situation, major players and contradictions. Also some instructive geostrategic analyses little or not at all publicized.

New Dimensions of U.S. Foreign Policy Toward Russia,
2/11/14 By George Friedman, Stratfor, Geopolitical Intelligence, www.stratfor.com/ weekly/ new-dimensions-us-foreign-policy-toward-russia -

The struggle for some of the most strategic territory in the world took an interesting twist this week. Last week we discussed what appeared to be a significant shift in German national strategy in which Berlin seemed to declare a new doctrine of increased assertiveness in the world -- a shift that followed intense German interest in Ukraine. This week, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, in a now-famous cellphone conversation declared strong contempt for the European Union and its weakness and counseled the US ambassador to Ukraine to proceed quickly without the Europeans to piece together a specified opposition coalition before the Russians saw what was happening and took action.

"Sowing discord among Western allies is a tactical maneuver, straight out of the Soviet playbook"
Awaiting Russia’s Next Move in Ukraine
2/10/14 Celestine Bohlen, http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/11/world/europe/awaiting-russias-next-mov...
Western diplomats worry over possibility of more aggressive moves by Russia once the Sochi Games are over. Sowing discord among Western allies is a tactical maneuver, straight out of the Soviet playbook. What worries Western diplomats is the possibility of more aggressive moves by Russia once the Sochi Games are over... All agree the stakes are high in what is sounding more and more like an eerie replay of the Cold War. A Russian official accused the US of “crudely interfering” in Ukrainian politics, while a US diplomat in a taped conversation, warned that the Russians would surely “be working behind the scenes to torpedo” any agreement brokered in Kiev by the West. When the Olympics end, the competition over the future of Ukraine will still be going on. The question is how leaders in Russia and the West choose to play it out.

OLYMPIC INTER-IMPERIALIST 'GAMES'
Geostrategic capitalist politics drive the games: The 2o14 Olympics is a crucial nodal point in US efforts destabilize Russia, one of the two re-born capitalists, which with China, threaten US global dominance, and thus the survival of US finance capital.
The media psywar is also laying the foundations for terrorist attacks it is predicting -- by Chechen terrorists -- with whom the US has long, deep connections, as you'll see.

Olympics bring us all together with pride, passion and patriotism
8/13/12 http://www.johnsoncitypress.com/Opinion/article.php?id=101813
Is there a more majestic sound than “Bugler’s Dream,” the Olympic theme song, as it heralds television coverage of the games? It’s topped only by the triumphant sound of “The Star Spangled Banner” played at medal ceremonies throughout the games and perhaps a roaring crowd chanting “USA! USA! USA!” ...I love the Olympics and the Summer Games particularly. There’s something about the games that bring people together and renew our collective sense of American pride...Unfortunately, politics or world events sometimes enter the Olympic arena. But at best, the Olympics represent hope, passion, unity, courage, determination and patriotism.
