Israel only beneficiary of Syria turmoil: Mark Glenn

Press TV has conducted an interview with Mark Glenn, an author and journalist in Idaho, about US President Barack Obama’s recent remarks that there is no “military solution” to the conflict in Syria, days after Washington announced plans to train anti-Damascus militants.

The following is a rough transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Mr. Glenn, can these waters get any murkier coming out of Washington? Why would you start training the so-called moderate militants to prolong a war, and then turn around and say that there is no military solution to the war?

Glenn: Right, this is what Obama has to do in order to maintain this illusion that what is taking place on the ground in Syria is anything other than a Zionist and American plot to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad through means less personally demanding than what the Americans had to do with regards to Iraq.

It is not a complicated problem as Obama said… the situation on the ground in Syria is a very simple problem to understand. It is one word long and it is spelled I.S.R.A.E.L, Israel. Israel is the only beneficiary in the region who stands to gain from all the turmoil talking place in Syria. Israel laid out her plans decades ago when a paper was written for then Benjamin Netanyahu outlining how various governments in the region had to be taken down and replacement put in there… they were going to be more cooperative with Israel’s short and long-term agenda in the region.

Press TV: Mr. Glenn, Obama also says that Washington is not involved in the Syrian conflict. In your opinion, how honest of an assessment is that?

Glenn: Well, it is a bold-faced lie but the fact of the matter is that, unfortunately, he can get away with saying this because the American people do not pay any attention to foreign affairs. They… pay attention when things start going up in their own country.

So he can afford to say this and it will give him some traction because certainly will keep the American people focused on other things. At the end of the day, people will continue to die, people will continue to suffer until people understand that the United States government does not belong to the people of the United States but rather, at this moment, it is firmly in the grips of a foreign hostile power sitting along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and that power is Israel.

Oil leaks into Hudson River following explosion at US nuclear plant

Thousands of gallons of oil have leaked into the Hudson River, a day after a loud explosion was heard at a nuclear facility near New York City.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Sunday he was concerned about environmental damage the oil leakage would cause.

On Saturday, an explosion rocked the Indian Point nuclear plant.  Officials said the blast was caused after a transformer exploded.

Eyewitnesses reported plumes of fire and smoke at the site.  

Cuomo said emergency crews were struggling to contain the leakage and clean up the transformer fluid that spilled from Indian Point 3.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo

"There's no doubt that oil was discharged into the Hudson River," the governor said. "Exactly how much, we don't know."

"If you are on site, you see an oil sheen all over the area where the transformer went on fire, and it was a significant area that was covered by oil, foam and water," Cuomo said.

Cuomo in the past had called for the plant – located 40 miles (65 km) north of New York City – to be shut down because of its proximity to the populous metropolis.

According to the company running the plant, Entergy Corporation, the affected parts of the facility were "safely shut down" and in "safe and stable condition.”

“The plant’s unit 3 reactor was closed after the explosion but the other one,” Entergy Corporation spokesman Jerry Nappi said.

“The plant’s unit 3 reactor was closed after the explosion but the other one, Unit 2 is still operating,” Entergy Corporation spokesman Jerry Nappi told reporters.

“No threat to public safety at any time,” said the company, attempting to comfort the public as many expressed fears across the state.

People who were nearby the nuclear plant and witnessed the explosion said that there was a large blast followed by fire and then smoke.

The nuclear plant was restarted on Friday after it was shut down for technical repairs.

The plant was built in 1962, but the current reactors operating went online in the late 1970s.

Turmoil in Ukraine

Turmoil in Ukraine

by Stephen Lendman

Ongoing events are scary. Everyone should be worried. Reports reveal heightened tensions. Conditions resemble nations preparing for war.

On March 1, Voice of Russia (VOR) said Ukraine's border guard ships are on "battle alarm" at sea. "(E)xtreme measures (are being taken) to avert the seizure of a territory in Sevastopol."

Valentina Matviyenko is Russia's highest ranking female politician. She chairs its upper parliamentary Federation Council.

Under ongoing "circumstances," she said, "we might send a limited contingent of troops to ensure security of the Black Sea Fleet and Russian national residing in Crimea."

"Surely, it's up to the president to decide as he is commander-in-chief, but we don't rule out such a scenario. We must protect our compatriots."

Russian senators visited Crimea. They briefed their colleagues. Moscow can't be indifferent to the security and safety of its nationals, she added.

Lower house State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin asked Putin "to take measures to stabilize the situation in Crimea and use all available possibilities to protect the population of Crimea from lawlessness and violence."

Interim Ukraine coup d'etat defense minister Igor Tenyukh formerly headed Ukraine's navy. 

In 2010, Yanukovych sacked him. He did so for initiating hostile action against Russia's Black Sea Fleet.

During Georgia's 2008 aggression against South Ossetia, he ordered Ukrainian ships to block Sevastopol waters. Russia's Black Sea Fleet was involved in "forcing Georgia to come to peace."

On Friday, Tenyukh accused Russia of invading Ukraine. Interim coup d’etat prime minister Arseny Yatseniuk said the country won't be "drawn into a military conflict by Russian provocations in the Crimea region."

On the one hand, his words ring hollow. Ukraine's military is no match against Russia's. It's unclear which side its commanders favor. They could intervene to impose their own authority.

Vladimir Chizhov is Russia's EU ambassador. He responded to Ukrainian accusations, saying:

"There are no troops whatsoever (in Crimea), no Russian troops at least."

Asked why "self-defense" groups were formed, he added:

"They have been hearing threats that so-called 'friendship trains' loaded with armed supporters of the Kiev Maidan were on their way to Crimea. Naturally the local population is worried."

He dismissed John Kerry's bluster, saying: 

"The US with its tradition of interfering in other countries and sending troops overseas, may be acting according to its own mentality, I would say." 

"But this is not a case of Russian interference. Actually many people in Russia are asking questions about why is the Russian government keeping such a low profile."

Russia's UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin said:

"We have an agreement with Ukraine on the presence of Russia's Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, and we have been acting within the framework of" its provisions.

It's dated April 21, 2010. Presidents of both countries signed it. It permits the presence of Russia's Black Sea Fleet in Crimea.

Throughout Ukraine's crisis, Putin remained uncharacteristically quiet. On Saturday, he asked Russia's Federation Council to authorize use of armed forces in Ukraine.

He issued a statement, saying:

"Due to the emergency situation in Ukraine and a threat being posed to the lives of Russian nationals, our compatriots, and the Russian military contingent stationed in Ukraine (the Autonomous Republic of Crimea) in compliance with international agreements, I ask the Federation Council for permit to use Russian armed forces on the territory of Ukraine until social and political situation in the country stabilizes."

Under Article 102 of Russia's Constitution, Federation Council members are responsible for deciding whether to deploy government troops externally.

On Saturday, at 11:23 EST, they voted unanimously to do so. More on this below.

America's Sixth Fleet ships were detected in the Black Sea heading for Crimean waters.

At the same time, unconfirmed reports suggest NATO forces arrived in western Ukraine's Lviv region. They came to protect the US-installed coup d'etat government.

It's unclear how Ukraine's military will respond. NATO's presence suggests concern about whether its commanders remain loyal to Yanukovych.

What's ongoing raises the stakes for a dangerous East/West confrontation. Perhaps it makes Crimean independence more likely. Perhaps eastern and southern Ukraine will break away.

The Security Council met on Saturday. Members "discuss(ed) the situation in Ukraine," according to an informed source.

They met on Friday. Ukrainian permanent representative, Yuri Sergeyev, urged its members to consider the Crimean situation "most seriously."

EU ambassadors are meeting in Brussels. They're discussing Ukraine ahead of an emergency Monday Foreign Affairs Council meeting.

NATO called an emergency Monday meeting. At issue is Ukraine's deteriorating situation.

Russia's Federation Council asked for Russia's US ambassador to be recalled. Russian Federation Council Deputy Chair Yuri Vorobyov called Obama a "direct threat" to the Russian Republic.

He crossed a "red line," he said. He "insulted the Russian people...We know that Maidan fighters were trained in Lithuania and Poland," he added.

"Now they want to take their activities to eastern regions of Ukraine and Crimea."

Federation Council member Vyacheslav Shtyrov expressed similar sentiments. "(E)vents occurring in Ukraine are the upshot of the extensive work that was done with the participation of foreign countries," he said.

"The US played a major role." Strings are pulled in Washington. Plans were made well before violence erupted last November.

Federation Council chair Valentina Matviyenko instructed the Committee on International Relations "to prepare an appeal to (Putin) without delay and send it to (him). (He'll) consider it and make the decision," she said.

The damn fool in the White House governs by Washington rules. Monied interests control him. They benefit hugely.

He opened a can or worms. He's getting more than he bargained for. 

How he'll respond remains to be seen. Putin won't roll over for him. He'll defend vital Russian interests.

A previous article suggested Ukraine may be his red line. For sure, in Crimea to protect Russia's Black Sea Fleet.

On Saturday, thousands of Crimeans marched through Simferopol streets. They displayed large Russian tricolor flags.

They chanted pro-Russian slogans. They carried posters reading "No to fascism." "No to Nazism."

Russian flags were raised in Odessa, Kharkov and other Ukrainian cities. Battle lines increasingly are drawn.

Will the damn fool in the White House blunder into more mistakes than already? Will he challenge Russia more irresponsibly than what's he's foolishly done?

An email to a valued ally suggested he may make Custer look brilliant by comparison. He only had his forces routed. 

Obama risks humanity. The damn fool in the White House may dare go where angels fear to tread. 

A previous article said impeaching him is a national imperative. It's more urgent now than ever. He's guilty of multiple high crimes. They're too grave to ignore.

He's beholden to interests risking armageddon. He's heading America for possible WW III. 

Stopping him at all costs matters most. The only solution is nonviolent revolution. US citizens are constitutionally empowered to resist.

They're entitled to challenged their government responsibly.  Francis Boyle calls civil resisters our "sheriffs." Washington's criminal element are "outlaws."

They "disobeyed fundamental principles of international law as well as US criminal law, and thus committed international crimes and US domestic crimes as well as impeachable violations of the United States Constitution," said Boyle.

"The American people must insist upon the impeachment, dismissal, resignation, indictment, conviction, and long-term incarceration of all US government officials guilty of such heinous international and domestic crimes."

Accountability goes straight to the top. No one remains unaccountable. Those highest up are most culpable. Chop off the head and the snake dies.

We the people must act. Institutionalized tyranny threatens everyone. Humanity may not survive Obama's second term.

The damn fool in the White House isn't savvy enough to get it. He doesn't understand the irresponsible risks he's taking. He's manipulated by dark forces controlling him.

It bears repeating what previous article stressed. Today is the most perilous time in world history. 

Imagine the worst of all possible outcomes. If that's not motivation enough to resist, what is?
