WikiLeaks blow up the” Central Asia?

 

Sergei Rasova

Kazakhstan’s neighbors were not white and fluffy after the announcement on the site WikiLeaks secret diplomatic correspondence.From what has already been posted on the World Wide Web, the most high-profile revelations relate to Turkmenistan.

But there are interesting moments, and for Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.

Kyrgyzstan hit by scandal in the Manas airbase. In particular, the published record the conversation as U.S. Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan Tatiana Gfoeller with PRC Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan Zhang Yanyan February 13, 2009. During the meeting, Chinese ambassador hinted American counterpart that the acquisition of Kyrgyzstan’s loan of two billion dollars from Russia “perhaps”, but subject to the closure of U.S. base at Manas. In this case, the Chinese ambassador gave some friendly advice: “Just give them $ 150 million a year in cash, and you’ll have a good base.” You do not have to develop some programs with the country.

U.S. Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan commented on the publication of secret documents that appear on the site WikiLeaks. As stated by Tatiana Gfoeller, “I can not vouch for the authenticity of any of these documents, but I can say that the United States deeply regrets that information that ought to be confidential, has received such publicity. And we condemn it. We support an open debate on the vital issues of public policy and strive for them. But thoughtless publication of documents without regard for the consequences is not a way to start such a debate “, – said the U.S. ambassador to Kyrgyzstan.

In contrast to the evasive response of the American diplomat, head of the Information Department Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Tajikistan Davlat Nazriev named materials published on the site WikiLeaks, fictional and provocative. “In our opinion, the authors of some countries who do not like an independent foreign policy of Tajikistan, aimed primarily at protecting their own interests, spread false information about Tajik diplomats and U.S. foreign affairs agency. We are officially refute all allegations relating to Tajikistan “, – the representative of Foreign Minister of the country.

Such a reaction is understandable – the most curious of the correspondence just relates directly to the chief Davlat Nazriev FM RT Khamrokhon Zarifi, former Ambassador of Tajikistan in Washington. In dispatches described in 2006, Ambassador Zarifi met with senior officials from the Department of State. And, they say, after this conversation, it was agreed that the Ambassador will serve as the U.S. manual for “replacement” of President Rakhmonov. And he will lead the country in the future, but until the U.S. prolobbiruyut question of his appointment Foreign Minister of Tajikistan.

“Pro-American President is agreed and requested the parties to abide by strict confidentiality of the meeting in the name of execution of strategic objectives set out in front of him and his team in a friendly country – the United States” – the report says.

It is no secret that Turkmenistan is the most closed country of the former ex-Soviet republics, and the life of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov know very little. Site WikiLeaks has published documents from the correspondence of the U.S. Embassy in Ashgabat with the State Department, which lifts the veil of secrecy over Turkmenistan.The documents relate to 2008 and was listed by the sender dispatches Sylvia Reed Curran, who from 2007 to 2010 was Deputy Chief of Mission and Charge d’Affaires in Turkmenistan.By the way, now Sylvia Curran – U.S. Consul General in the Russian Far East.

First of all, we note that in their reports, Charge d’Affaires in Ashgabat, Sylvia Curran citing foreign sources in Ashgabat reported that a boat valued at 60 million euros, which appeared in the Caspian Sea is actually a gift from the Russian company Itera . We are talking about a banal bribe the first face of the state Berdimuhamedov for lucrative contracts.

Diplomat Sylvia Curran adds to their personal characteristics dispatch Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. For example, he wanted to “get a bigger boat, similar to the one that belongs to the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, but such a boat could not pass through the channels leading to the Caspian Sea, and therefore Berdimuhamedov had to agree to this yacht.”

Thanks to the site WikiLeaks became clear that the collection of cars Berdimuhamedov consists of brands such as Bentley, Mercedes, Maybach, Range Rover and Cadillac Escalade.

There was also information on the family of President Berdimuhamedov. Site “Chronicles of Turkmenistan” did their own translation of one of the documents on WikiLeaks. It provides, inter alia, states that Berdimuhamedov has a wife, Turkmen, who resides in London since 2007. There are also Russian mistress, Marina, a former nurse, dental clinic, where he worked Berdimuhamedov. He has two daughters and a son Serdar Turkmen from spouses and teenage daughter from a Russian mistress.

The eldest daughter is married to Yashgeldy Haman. He is the head of the State Agency for Management and Use of Hydrocarbon Resources in Europe. Place of residence – London.His second daughter lives with her husband, a diplomat working in the Turkmen Embassy in Paris. Local Turkmen businessman claims that this daughter has a villa on the Cote d’Azur in southern France.

According to sources, Berdimuhamedov vain, suspicious, cautious, very conservative, experienced a liar, a good actor and vengeful. According to an unnamed source, Berdimuhamedov do not like America, Iran and Turkey, but he likes China. The same source claims that “the president does not like the president of Uzbekistan – Karimov and Kazakhstan – Nazarbayev.

In Uzbekistan, there is nothing interesting on this country in the network is not posted, but, as reports “Kavkaztsentr, Julian Assandzh announced that it has enough arguments against the governments of Central Asian republics. Like, there is a certain source – political refugees from Central Asia, “which has a huge archive of crimes against humanity in Central Asia, with more than 800 volumes and 220,000 pages, enough to seat the presidents of the dock.” And further – “materials contain incriminating documents to the presidents of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Russia, as well as their families and immediate environment.”

So it is quite possible that still lies ahead, and the next wave of compromising just “explode” in Central Asia.

[Google Trans. from syriatruth.info ]

Director and second in the Wikileaks’s “truth”: Julian Osanj promised to the Israelis not to publish any document their own

Daniel Berg Domokht: Julian Osanj received funding from the official Israeli bodies and vowed not to publish any important document about the Israeli activities, including “documents the war of July!”?
Berlin, the truth (particularly Leah Abramowitz ) : Director confirmed the second (last) in the site “Wikileaks”, German Daniel Domkhitt Berg, that the site manager Julian Osanj received funding from the Israeli bodies semi-formal, and it concluded with these parties, “a written agreement and recorded sound and image “includes an undertaking by him, uncle of the publication of any document that may cause harm or damage to the interests of Israel’s diplomatic or security. The Domokht Berg lived until two months ago under an assumed name is Daniel Domokht, but returned to use his real name, “Berg Domokht” after disagreeing with Julian Osanj and leaving the management of the site early October last year.

He said Domkhitt Berg (32 years) in connection with the “truth” by e-mail from Berlin where he lives with his wife, who also works in the field of “Alinformatik” The Osanj “met with Israeli officials, believed to be intelligence personnel and / or diplomats, in Switzerland and concluded with them agreement in this regard. “Revealed Domokht Berg for the documentation of American diplomacy that is being published now turn to the sites “Wikileaks” In some of the world’s media the other “was included in the origin of large quantities of documents diplomatic about the war in July 2006 on Lebanon, which was informed by Israeli authorities early, which forced them to open lines of communication with us, and in particular with Osanj which has monopolized contact with them later, before it entered into with a deal that includes a pledge not to publish these documents, and possibly destroyed “, pointing out that the main source of these documents is the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, but some came from the U.S. embassies in other countries in the region, especially Oman, Cairo and Riyadh, as well as some other documents that have been formulated in the State in the form of observations and guidance of a U.S. diplomat in the Middle East and Europe. “According to Domokht Berg, the Osanj, which monopolize the keys (“Baswordz”) access to these documents, the process of screening them with some of his colleagues where he was “disarmament” of documents related to the war mentioned, in particular those covering the period from June 2006 to September of the year the same archive of documents full. This continues to say you can see, either through published documents, or through access to the files of these documents (available enter it now in more than one site, Wikileaks) that there is “jumping” over this period. and some wonder: Is conceivable that U.S. diplomats did not write a single word about the explosive situation in 33 days and the subsequent, and were satisfied with the comments and observations on the issues of other Middle Eastern-like manner chattering? and went on to say: “Perhaps, it is a diversion Odhir ash in the eyes, baptizing Osanj to publish some documents relating to that period, but I assure believe that any document of value on that war will not be published. ”

And we asked him about the reason for the dispute with Osanj and left the working group, said Domokht Berg “It was the transparency and people’s right of access to be drafted for their condition in the rooms secret closed our motto since the beginning, but soon turned, like any political party wins the election and is backing out of promises to his voters by the magic power and privileges, to play the same role played by governments that Taahidna to expose, and this method is not immoral. ” Because of the circumstances “security” surrounding Bjulian Osanj, you can not “truth” to communicate with him where he lives now in the County of Essex south east of London to comment on the statements of his former partner, even though we left a few messages through the pages of “Wikileaks” on site “Twitter” and through your mail we received from Domokht Berg.
Remains to note that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was confirmed, at the beginning to talk about the determination of “Wikileaks” published thousands of documents of American diplomacy, that Israel is reassuring in terms of these documents would not include harm to interests and will not be affected. He praised Julian Osanj turn, in an interview with “Time” magazine last week, the U.S. , Netanyahu and praised him as “a model of global leader who believes that the publication of documents helps international diplomacy,” and that “is not politically naive (…) he understands what he says

Chronology of events–US Develops Paramilitarism as Colombia State Policy

Chronology of events Paramilitarism developers as state policy

Chronology of events revealing
the paramilitaries and state policy

In this relationship, drawn from a database which supports 5-axis: time, space, action, actor and recording, I selected a set of facts that show how for four decades, the paramilitary has stubbornly persisted as state policy in Colombia , managing to accommodate various legal situations but remained at the heart of a repressive model that sells itself as a model “democracy.” This is not an exhaustive list but rather asample revealing that selects 50 events spread over 40 years but which has the potential to see that it is not spurious but marginal practices of a state policy that has very clear formulations a rigid continuity over time, and many instruments have been or remain hidden under the label of ” reserved “, and many processes and evidence as” files “or” estoppel “that history will know someday exhumed and subjected to less concealing legal rationalities and less complicit in the shame.

2/26/1962
In February 1962 he paid a visit to Colombia by members of the Special Warfare School , U.S.. This date is classified report of the visit, made by General Yarborough, director of research at the Special Warfare School at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. The report was accompanied by a Secret Supplement , in which we read these passages: ” You must create a team right now in that country, to select military and civilian personnel with a view to a clandestine training in law enforcement operations, in case of need after . This should be done in order to develop a civilian-military structure that is exploited in the event that the internal security system deteriorates over Colombia. This structure is used to push the changes that we know that they will need to get functions of counter-action actors and counter-propaganda and, as necessary, to promote sabotage and / or paramilitary terrorist activities against known communist proponents. The United States should support this . “

In the same report, the General Yarborough included recommendations to the Army and the Police of Colombia, to improve intelligence and population control. In particular he suggested: “An intensive program of registration of civilians … So everyone is eventually registered in government records, including fingerprints and photographs . ” It also recommended procedures and interrogation techniques that included ” sodium pentothal and use of polygraphs … apart to extract information . ”  (read HERE)

It’s Not Going to Be OK

It’s Not Going to Be OK

Riots have occurred in a number of European countries since the economic crisis began. Here, Greek riot police stand near a burning car.

By Chris Hedges

The daily bleeding of thousands of jobs will soon turn our economic crisis into a political crisis. The street protests, strikes and riots that have rattled France, Turkey, Greece, Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Iceland will descend on us. It is only a matter of time. And not much time. When things start to go sour, when Barack Obama is exposed as a mortal waving a sword at a tidal wave, the United States could plunge into a long period of precarious social instability.

At no period in American history has our democracy been in such peril or has the possibility of totalitarianism been as real. Our way of life is over. Our profligate consumption is finished. Our children will never have the standard of living we had. And poverty and despair will sweep across the landscape like a plague. This is the bleak future. There is nothing President Obama can do to stop it. It has been decades in the making. It cannot be undone with a trillion or two trillion dollars in bailout money. Our empire is dying. Our economy has collapsed.

How will we cope with our decline? Will we cling to the absurd dreams of a superpower and a glorious tomorrow or will we responsibly face our stark new limitations? Will we heed those who are sober and rational, those who speak of a new simplicity and humility, or will we follow the demagogues and charlatans who rise up out of the slime in moments of crisis to offer fantastic visions? Will we radically transform our system to one that protects the ordinary citizen and fosters the common good, that defies the corporate state, or will we employ the brutality and technology of our internal security and surveillance apparatus to crush all dissent? We won’t have to wait long to find out.

There are a few isolated individuals who saw it coming. The political philosophersSheldon S. Wolin, John Ralston Saul and Andrew Bacevich, as well as writers such as Noam Chomsky, Chalmers Johnson, David Korten and Naomi Klein, along with activists such as Bill McKibben and Ralph Nader, rang the alarm bells. They were largely ignored or ridiculed. Our corporate media and corporate universities proved, when we needed them most, intellectually and morally useless.

Wolin, who taught political philosophy at the University of California in Berkeley and at Princeton, in his book “Democracy Incorporated” uses the phrase inverted totalitarianism to describe our system of power. Inverted totalitarianism, unlike classical totalitarianism, does not revolve around a demagogue or charismatic leader. It finds its expression in the anonymity of the corporate state. It purports to cherish democracy, patriotism and the Constitution while cynically manipulating internal levers to subvert and thwart democratic institutions. Political candidates are elected in popular votes by citizens, but they must raise staggering amounts of corporate funds to compete. They are beholden to armies of corporate lobbyists in Washington or state capitals who write the legislation. A corporate media controls nearly everything we read, watch or hear and imposes a bland uniformity of opinion or diverts us with trivia and celebrity gossip. In classical totalitarian regimes, such as Nazi fascism or Soviet communism, economics was subordinate to politics. “Under inverted totalitarianism the reverse is true,” Wolin writes. “Economics dominates politics—and with that domination comes different forms of ruthlessness.”

I reached Wolin, 86, by phone at his home about 25 miles north of San Francisco. He was a bombardier in the South Pacific during World War II and went to Harvard after the war to get his doctorate. Wolin has written classics such as “Politics and Vision” and “Tocqueville Between Two Worlds.” His newest book is one of the most important and prescient critiques to date of the American political system. He is also the author of a series of remarkable essays on Augustine of Hippo, Richard Hooker, David Hume, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Max Weber, Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and John Dewey. His voice, however, has faded from public awareness because, as he told me, “it is harder and harder for people like me to get a public hearing.” He said that publications, such as The New York Review of Books, which often published his work a couple of decades ago, lost interest in his critiques of American capitalism, his warnings about the subversion of democratic institutions and the emergence of the corporate state. He does not hold out much hope for Obama.

“The basic systems are going to stay in place; they are too powerful to be challenged,” Wolin told me when I asked him about the new Obama administration. “This is shown by the financial bailout. It does not bother with the structure at all. I don’t think Obama can take on the kind of military establishment we have developed. This is not to say that I do not admire him. He is probably the most intelligent president we have had in decades. I think he is well meaning, but he inherits a system of constraints that make it very difficult to take on these major power configurations. I do not think he has the appetite for it in any ideological sense. The corporate structure is not going to be challenged. There has not been a word from him that would suggest an attempt to rethink the American imperium.”
