The Despicable Washington “Pest”

Not Just Another War Mongering Scandal Sheet


by  Gordon Duff,  Senior Editor


Veterans Today has been at war with the Washington Post for some time.  Oddly enough, our current  readership is now larger than the Posts, despite its incessant pandering and salacious content.

Other than Jeff Stein, a genuinely funny guy, the idea of actually touching a “Washington Post” without gloves and a mask is not recommended, not for humans at least.

Our issue today involved what the Post describes as its “Editorial Board” and their pseudo-scientific conclusions regarding uranium enrichment and nuclear weapons design.  Veterans Today, as a military publication, includes, not only the DOE’s top nuclear weapons designers among its staff but senior physicists from Sandia, Los Alamos and nuclear weapons experts from the US Army, Air Force and Navy.

The “Post” has its unnamed “Editorial Board.”  Traditionally, the post uses as its point of reference statements made by an Israeli name David Albright.  Albright, at one time, worked with VT contributors at the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Association), a group that advises the UN on nuclear issues.

Albright won notoriety for publicly describing the design of Pakistan’s “gun type” nukes as “solid core.”  Any moron knows that a “gun type” nuke is “split core.”

Thank heavens Albright has NEVER worked with nuclear weapons.  You see, constructing a solid core of sufficient mass using weapons grade Uranium 235 will, upon manufacturing alone, initiate a fission reaction.

In terms the “Post” and Albright might understand:  “The sucker would explode.”  We could advise Albright and the Post ways to enhance their “nuclear suicide,” bringing about a more effective and genuinely devastating reaction.  Such information should be withheld from them though originally released by Popular Mechanics in an article published over fifty years ago.

Today, the Post has decided that it is simple, may I say “the Post and Benjamin Netanyahu believe” that 20% enriched uranium gas can easily be converted, in a single step, to 95% weapons grade uranium.  Here, read it yourself:

“the most dangerous part of Iran’s program by requiring a freeze in the enrichment of uranium to a level of 20 percent, which is a short step from bomb-grade, and by shutting down the underground facility known as Fordow, where that enrichment takes place. Iran would also be required to ship its current stockpile of medium-enriched uranium out of the country…

At the same time, the United States — and more so Israel — cannot easily wait many more months for a deal. If Iran continues to enrich uranium to 20 percent at its present rate, it may acquire enough to quickly make a bomb by the middle of this year, potentially giving it the “breakout capacity” that both President Obama and the Israeli government have vowed to prevent. Tehran would have crossed that line last fall had it not diverted a large part of its stockpile to fabricate fuel for a research reactor.”

Here, I believe, we now see who the Post represents.

The Post is and always has been the voice of Likudist Israel, a nation that has only been saved from nearly 200 United Nations votes for sanctions, sanctions based on war crimes, by American vetoes.  Never are such issues reported in the Post.

Today, however, we look to the Post and ask them to account for their lies.

I can explain, in terms even one of their 3rd rate community college journalism dropouts can understand:

“Twenty percent uranium gas can be converted to a metallic weapons grade nuclear core using the same methods and technology that would allow Post editors to light up one of those “doobies” they must be smoking and exhale a Chevy truck.”

What they expect America to do is to attack Iran, sending another generation of Americans to war for Israel, to war based on lies just as with Iraq and Afghanistan.

Nobody at the Post will fight.  No one from Israel will fight although bulldozing of homes in what the UN has officially deemed the “free and independent Nation of Palestine” will go on.  Children will be shot, shot in the face repeatedly, as the IDF has always done, “Sandy Hook style.”

In order to support this farce, “Mossadnik” Julian Assange is quite probably preparing to release “secret war plans” tying, as Newsweek had done a short time ago, Iran to the Sandy Hook terror attacks.

We expect no less.

In the interim, we wish Netanyahu good luck with what we hope will be our new Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

We do know this, Hagel can tell the difference between a nuclear weapon and Netanyahu’s infamous “Wylie Coyote” bomb cartoon. With a little luck, “history” may well erase, not only Netanyahu but his mouthpiece, the Washington Post, “from the sands of time.”

    Hagel and Kerry, now that would be a kick-ass team of combat-vet, war-wise dudes. Question is, will they kick the right ass? Or just run business as usual, with a few token tinkerings at the edges? If they can’t do it, then no one can, and it’s game over, as far as real change goes, maybe for ever.

    I just read this and wasn’t sure if it was a joke of some kind. But does Israel have some kind of hidden veto power 9other than the informal AIPAC power we know about( ?

    “In light of Mr. Hagel’s worrying remarks on Israeli-Palestinian relations and questionable classification of Israeli interests as ‘the Jewish lobby,’ we consider him a highly inappropriate choice for Defense Secretary who stands far out of line with our national priorities, and therefore we are prepared to swiftly and resolutely use our official veto power over this U.S. action,” said Israeli government spokesperson Mark Regev of the legal maneuver that the small Middle Eastern nation has employed to block U.S. Cabinet nominees, U.S. legislation, U.S. international relations, and U.S. domestic policy over 1,400 times in its 64-year history.

    “Because congress does not possess the necessary nine-tenths majority to override an Israeli veto, they’ll have no choice but to head back to the drawing board and provide a Defense Secretary whom we find more suitable.”

    Sources confirmed that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had sent the White House a list of three individuals the Israeli leader considered appropriate to head the American military from which U.S. President Barack Obama could choose.”

    Is this right?

    except in lives gone wrong to tell a lie is usually an isolated act. although everyone is guilty if it at times, the practice of lying is widely judged to be harmful, allowing some exceptions.

    lies differ in the degree to which they are noxious.

    on a regular basis to concoct highly toxic untruths, to print hundreds of thousands of copies of them, and to disseminate them with that familiar posture of gravitas to which a newspaper cannot be entitled unless it is committed to performing that crucial operation of democratic governance – informing citizens de rebus publicis – is both a crime against humanity and a scandalous and apparently shameless waste of the natural resources used in printing and distributing such ugly and superfluous garbage.

    Great article Gordon (as usual). Chuck Hagel knows the neocons with help from the mossadniks did 911. Like so many of the non-neocon military high command, he knows about the “samson option” and their game of blackmail while functioning like financial parasites on the American taxpayer, while feathering their own beds and making all the necessary campaign contributions to keep the revenues and arms flowing. The cutout has been willing to do a great deal of dirty work for the Shadow Govt as far as high tech spying, oppression of Americans through the alphabets and justice dept they control but is now just about used up and there is no further needs for their services. especially as the central fiat banking scam collapses, their main source of control in the past and a previously taboo subject. Thus they are now in the process of being rejected internationally and thrown under the bus by America. No matter how hard their fifth column works to keep the propaganda working, it is now far too late. The curtain has been pulled back exposing the wizard of OZ (as in ounce) and the American people want an honest monetary producton and distribution system.

      Advanced civilizations “look outward”, and primitive “look inward”, advanced civilizations see “many as one” and primitive “one as many”.

      Such civilizations use mathematical functions to interpret languages, communications, and connectivity, and thus to perceive and project future actions. Projections are perceived through formulation and observations of these actions, and repeatability measured in both magnitude and time, accumulative. Such methods require statistical means of calculating the probability of occurrence, based on repetitive accumulative and magnitude, and time. The resulting accumulation of these actions are categorically classified and modeled to project transformations or abnormalities in near time or future. The algorithms for such trends are somewhat complex, because the models created are forever evolving, as are the results. Do you wish to see into the future for 15 years from present time, maybe longer? Would you like this technology? I can ask, however, the other was difficult to convince such passage.

    Great post Mr. Duff,
    I loved the humor. I am surprised that with all the talk the Israel does about Iran that no word is ever mentioned about the “Atoms for Peace” program where the United States was the Father to Iran’s Nuclear program.

    Yet as many know who reads News, that Israel only uses Iran to deflect what carnage they are inflicting on the Palestinians. I wish American’s also had a way to donate Weapon’s to Palestine as the US Arms the same Al Qaeda used in this Hoax ‘War on Terror’ and created the very laws of the Patriot Acts and NDAA and Breaks them by supporting Terrorist in both Libya and Syria.

    Watching the many videos of Al Qaeda/Rebels War Crimes from Syria and the STACKS of Israeli weapons anyone can guess that the road to Iran is through Damascus. I am so PROUD of Putin for placing his War Ship’s off Syria’s coast. I just hope that he sends in 90,000 Russian troops to screw Israel’s wet dream up. Israel is the only one to benefit should Assad fall. But like Libya and Iraq no Democracy will ever be in place. Puppet Governments are like watching the US claim they are “Going In” for Humanitarian Aid then killing more people then the prior “Regime” ever did. What is clear in Syria is that Israel wants to claim all that land and doesn’t care how many PAID Arab’s or Muslim’s die killing Arab’s and Muslim’s. I just wish they would WAKE UP and see what a trap they are being lead into with Israel at the helm.

    So, Do many read the Washington Post? I don’t. But thanks for the humor.

    Well Gordon I have heard so much about “loving Israel” Hagel lack of proper passion for Israel and so help me if Graham, who obviously is replacing Lieberman as AIPAC voice, keeps coming up with his idiocy I hope he reads your headline, The problem is Israel is a PEST I don’t know how many of your remember how Israel came to claim this unbreakable commitment but I do and Reagan most be fuming every time he hears it. Because during his administration there was an episode, I do not precisely remember what it was, not that significant, except that a person from Reagan Office kept pestering the President “Mr. President the Israeli are here they want to know what is their relationship with us” “relationship,? what relationship” “they think they should be given a position, a name about their particular relation with us” A frustrated President Reagan finally snapped, ‘Oh call it special relationship, strategic interest”. It was all on the Media you can check and it was obvious Reagan was looking for the LEAST binding commitment because he did not like those binding commitment any more than George Washington did. Well, as any person familiar with BUREAUCRATIC maneuvering knows, it took little time for Israel and friends in Congress to put Reagan words in writing with proper legal verbiage and adjustment.
    They worked it so well through Congress no one would dare challenge the meaning and secrecy (Israel demanded secrecy for the document) but it is time some one answer that question–as Gordon did above. As for secrecy, questionable for regular American, Israel explained they needed the secrecy of the extent and detail or it would impair their effort in their plan in the Middle East. Those plan as it turned out for us who took the trouble to look where simple, Netanyahu planned a double game. and was busy convincing the Saudi and bickering states how he would help them. Since by then Netanyahu had crowned himself as the forthcoming Governor of the future Middle East.

    The Hijacking of America, its Institutions and Govt has been/is made possible and feasible because the Zion Talmudic Mafia’s control over and misuse of:

    1) The Media,
    2) The Money.

    The Media primary role, like the Washington Post and FOX News, is to deceive, dis-inform, suppress any news contrary to the Interests or Likud-Beitenu and in general play the American People for Fools, abuse them, down dumb them, to make it easier to extort money from them to give to Talmudlandia while many Veterans and common Americans States side are homeless and jobless.

    This INSANITY is only possible when the control of America is NOT in TRUE American hands but in the hands of those Israel use as proxies, the Washington Post being of them, part of the 5th column, whose role is to keep Americans misinformed, conned, belligerent against people and nations Israel consider its enemies, because they do not accept its occupation of Palestinian land, do not kowtow to its Middle East hegemony, as USA-CDN-EU do. The Washington Post have been instrumental in giving the American public a wrong image about Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, who have NEVER attacked us, who have never spied on us, as Israel did and is still doing.

    The control of the MONEY printed or electronically “credited”, created out of thin air, is what makes it possible for the Mafia to become a MONOPOLISTIC OWNER of the MEDIA and BUY crooked politicians, those who gave 29 standing ovations to Netanyahu, a murderous psychopath and a compulsive liar.

    Final lesson
    For systematically decoding Propaganda

    As prior stated, the “Propaganda Man” often uses simple formulas to inject and sale misinformation or lies. However, by understanding the methods applied, most people can encode their “agendas or actions”. As stated in prior comments, “actions” are desired most often by small groups, however, to implement such action requires the services of the “Propaganda Man” as to create and sell “lies and deception”, or problems of sort, and thereby facilitating these actions for implementation. So continuing, take note of the simple equations listed below.

    1+1=2, 2+2=4, 4+4=8, 5+5=10, 6+6=12, 7+7=14, 8+8=16, 9+9=18, 10+10=20, 1+1=2, 2+2=4, 4+4=8, 5+5=10, 6+6=12, 7+7=14, 8+8=15, 9+9=18, 10+10=20, 1+1=2, 2+2=4, 4+4=8, 5+5=10.

    At first note, you might believe all equations above are true, but after some observation you will discover false answers hidden within truths. As shown above, 8+8=15 is not true. Now, if some observed such error and ask for correction, sometime later, you might observe this same mistake repeated again. Now and after, ask yourself, was this truly some mistake or is the “Propaganda Man” trying to sell the idea that 8+8=15 is true? Read further.

    Now given the above basic example, one can easily make these formulas “slightly” more difficult to process, so some observers might overlook hidden false information’s within truths once again. However, these are not “hidden errors” to the “Propaganda Man”, it’s an applied technique for selling “misinformation and lies”, and periodically repeated. And such techniques are used to embed lies and misinformation into your mind to produce involuntary responses both associative and reactionary, versus using normal though and thinking to process information. Observe below.

    1+N=2, (N=1), 2+N=4, (N=2), 3+N=6, (N=3), 4+N=8, (N=4), 5+N=10, (N=5), 6+N=12, (N=6), 7+N=14, (N=7), 8+N=15, (N=8), 9+N=18, (N=9), 10+N=20, (N=10), 11+N=22, (N=11), 12+N=24, (N=12), 13+N=26, (N=13).

    The same method was used again, and likewise to sell the idea that 8+8=15, and thus applying 8+N=15, (N=8) as the new method. The complexity increases slightly, but the method remains, and such methods are used in written materials as to slowly embed involuntary responses. With the idea of creating this reactionary response to certain subject matters, versus using subjective thinking and reasoning to form conclusions. Observe sample formulation as shown below.

    Iran has nuclear weapons, or 8 + 8 = 15.
    Iran has ongoing nuclear weapons program, or 8 + N = 15, (N = 8).
    Iran has nuclear weapons program, and will produce nuclear weapon soon, or 8 + N = 15, (N > 7, N < 9).

    All above, was used to show how the complexity is slightly increased, but idea remains the same, trying to sell you, 8 + 8 = 15?

    So how does one determine the “agenda or desired actions” when observing programmatic disinformation and delivery systems? One method is to document all statements that appear to be misleading or false in nature and having an understanding that false information’s are often hidden within truths or what appears to be popular truths. After some time you will observe the false information’s to be repetitive, or often repeated in various forms through materials, as shown above. And remember, such misinformation’s are “action” driven, and can be complied and analyzed. You can learn real truths through their deceptions, by analyzing misinformation they present, and periodically studying the result as one.

    And remember, when stones are thrown into the pond, take note of the distortions in the outward ripples, because such distortions are often repetitive and connective.

    That’s all Gordon.

      I read your post a couple of times, and thought about the times I’ve been involved in real situations that were “botched” by the media, the lead agencies, or the so-called info officers. I knew real frustration at attempting to clarify some essential facts and conditions, all the while being stonewalled with distorted crap. I knew it was intentional. I knew it was a nice camo for the real agenda that no one was supposed to pay attention to. Your post is quality stuff for people to read and understand. When people don’t know the full facts, propaganda works even better, and that, IMHO is why Americans are never allowed the full story on anything, unless they pry it out for themselves, with their own crow bar.
      The good news is, even if we don’t have all the facts, even if we don’t fully know the terrain, we can pick out this modus operandi using what we do have. Thus begins the decoding.
      Thanks for this one.

      Also important is the understanding that there are people out there who will come by to equate N to 15. That we do not live in a vacuum, not even here on VT.

    May be it is time for the Palestinian people to have the same rifles as the IDF instead of rock throwing,
    The fight is than a little bit more equal. Would the Palestinian children than be safer if the IDF would get a return of equal power?
    If you don’t hold people hostage on a strip of land most likely they will not send their rockets to your cities.

      –Who came up with “anti-Semitic”?
      Israeli/Zionists as their propaganda tools, in order to terrorize, not only USA, but also the entire world, who don’t know all the people with “Semitic” ethnicity.

      –What does “anti-Semitic” means?
      Those individuals who are against people with “Semitic” ethnicity.

      –Who are the “Semites” or even Hemites?
      The majority of people who live in the Middle-East, North Africa, the entire Arabian Peninsula, Southeast Asia and beyond.

      ——–Therefore, since the majority of the people who live in the Middle-East, North Africa, the entire Arabian Peninsula, Southeast Asia and beyond are “Semites” or Hemites, Israeli/Zionists, do not have “Monopoly on the word ‘Semites.”

      ‘USA Congressmen live in fear of pro-Israel intimidation’

      —–Many American senators and congressmen “keep quiet” and refrain from criticizing Israeli policies because they “live in fear” and are “intimidated” by pro-Israeli groups such as the Emergency Committee for Israel (ECI), according to J Street founder and President Jeremy Ben-Ami.

    Great article outlining the impossibility of the Pest’s absurd assertions. You also have me as a regular commentator. :mrgreen:

    Richard Haas, the President of the Council for Foreign Relations, was also on Fareed Zakaria’s, “Global Public Square”, this morning turning red-faced as Ian Bremmer remarked that the chances of an attack on Iran were 30% or less. He quickly raised the ante to 50% or above. Anne Marie-Slaughter, Zionist bootlicker, raised it to 60% or above and nodded in agreement, smiling at Richard Haas visibly. So much for a bargaining chip.

    Both Iran and America, at the highest levels, are recalcitrant towards war, despite Netanyahu and his 5th column’s swan songs of rage (h/t Duff), and this is because of the war would achieve completely opposite effect to nearly all the stated objectives: the Iranian government would consolidate Iranian support, the US economy would crater, and corridor would be given to an irrevocable hegemony for NAM, Russia, and China.

    The fundamental aspect of Iran’s complaint is that they have become compliant with the NPT since 2003 and that the extra-legal safeguards leveled in the UNSC were politicized for a rogue nuclear faction’s benefit. They, thus, believe the sanctions that stemmed from these safeguards to be fraudulent and criminal. Iran expects that any compromise backtracks on these sanctions and creates a grander form of rapprochement than a continued corruption of their obligations and rights under the NPT.

    In addition, Iran is interested in becoming a competitor in the downstream commercial markets springing forth from nuclear progress — for instance, the sale of medical isotopes. This is of grave concern to Israel, who is currently a leader in that field.

    Right on, g. Read Catharine Graham’s (i.e. the Washington ComPost’s) Queen Hotshot Wannabe’s book ( I can’t remember title) and it all makes perfect sense. The rest of the “family” ain’t no better……. Eugene Mayer, banking lowlife, Graham’s father, bought the paper in something like 1938 and turned it into a neocon rag by 1939, at latest. Latest CEO, Martin Brauchli…… complete scum, neocon zionist filth, an “editorial” board which couldn’t differentiate truth from hasbara if it were held at gunpoint and this is by design….. The spawn of Satan…. Katherine Weymouth (in the “Family”), Charles Krauthammer, Fred Hiatt (ringleader), Jennifer Rubin……. long list…… Pathetic piece of work by anyone with the IQ of plywood. Only a complete moron could fail to see the agenda.

    My high school newspaper had more honest content than the Washington ComPost. More useful, too and written by people who actually deserved to breathe.
