JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE ORVILLE NIX FILM OF THE KENNEDY ASSASINATION – FOOLISH WRITER CALLS IT THE LAST MYSTERY – A GOOD EXAMPLE OF IGNORANCE BEING PASSED OFF ON THE PUBLIC

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

Last JFK murder mystery?

Good God, the author should do some serious reading before writing on the subject.

Far from it, I could supply a list of mysteries.

There are CIA and FBI files never released, presumably some of the most damning.

For example, those involving his easy acceptance back from the Soviet Union after being there for more than two years at the height of the Cold War, and with a Soviet bride.

How did Oswald begin learning Russian in the Marines?

We know Oswald did some paid informant work for the FBI, we even have his informant number, but many details remain unknown.

We still do not know whether it was Oswald or someone else who went to Mexico City because CIA supplied the wrong picture taken by its surveillance camera and said voice recordings were routinely destroyed.

Why was the limo hurried off to Ford in Rouge River to be rebuilt almost right away? Several who saw it in front of the hospital briefly said there was a bullet hole in the front windshield and a mark in the chrome trim.

Why is the chain of evidence in Dallas, as handled by the Dallas Police, broken for a number of key pieces of evidence, including bullet shells?

Why are there huge conflicts over the autopsy photos, as there are? It seems certain two sets were made at two different times and they do not show the same things according to a number of witnesses.

Why, to this day, can’t experts agree on aspects of the autopsy? There are a number of absolutely crucial details left unknown, including whether the body was sectioned to follow bullet paths.

What is the reference to “surgery of the head” noted at the start by two FBI agents who watched the autopsy? There appears for this and other serious reasons to have been two procedures at two hospitals, the one we call the autopsy being the second.

JFK’s head literally exploded, and doctors at the emergency treatment said much of the back of the head was missing with brain material hanging out. That cannot have been a shot from the back.

Further it cannot have been the kind of “jacketed” bullets supposedly used by Oswald. Only a dum-dum or hollow or soft-core bullet acts that way. Never explained.

The shot in the neck was certainly also from the front since the emergency doctors agreed it was a wound of entrance.

The Texas Governor’s wounds could absolutely not be explained by the “single-bullet theory” and the Governor himself always believed he was hit by a separate shot. The Warren Commission ignored him. The bullet residue left in him were never retrieved, even when he died.

There is still no evidence that Oswald even bought the junky rifle attributed to him. The paperwork trail leads nowhere.

As does the matter of his postal box. Someone else had access, and mail was received there many days later.

Well, there’s a start, and there’s plenty more without paying any attention to far-out theories.

Response to a reader asking why Kennedy assassination still important with all the world’s other horrors today:

I agree, but just think how important it is that America’s government never solved this. Actually, I think it did, but it never told us what it found for still secret reasons. If it can do that and get away with it, it’s no surprise about the secret horrors it inflicts in places like Syria and keeps lying about.

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: THE REASONS FOR TURKEY SHOOTING DOWN RUSSIAN PLANE – NOT THE LEAST IS ERDOGAN’S MENTAL STATE – RUSSIA CREATES DE FACTO NO-FLY ZONE

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

There are at least two reasons for this provocation by Turkey.

ISIS has been financing itself by stealing Syrian oil and selling it to Turkey at a discount.

Putin’s recent heavy bombardment of the trucks and facilities involved undoubtedly irritates Erdogan, and I believe his own son is involved in this whole operation.

The second reason for this is that it was meant to put a stop to a genuine anti-ISIS coalition.

When I say “genuine,” I mean one which actually targets the terrorists – as Russia is doing – and not one which targets Syria and effectively protects ISIS, which is the pattern of America’s efforts, the ones supported by a disingenuous David Cameron.

Turkey is the last country wanting a genuine coalition since it is a major supporter of ISIS. It uses those murderous thugs against both the Kurds Erdogan so hates and of course against the government of Syria, a reasonable government which opposes some of Erdogan’s fetid dreams of empire.

Of course, in any matter involving Erdogan, there is always the sheer fact of his mental instability as an explanatory variable. This man who built himself a grotesque, one thousand-room palace recently, makes contradictory statements on important matters every few days, and hates some groups like the Kurds with an intense white heat is a genuinely erratic and unstable man.

It’s all a dirty business, and the only honest major player is Putin. Cameron, Obama, Erdogan, and Netanyahu are outright liars and supporters of terror. They are also guilty of supporting criminal invasion of a peaceful country. Hollande was with them but has been wavering.

The various words by American Defense Secretary Ash Carter over recent time sound just like something from Dr. Strangelove, full of dark threats and anger over America’s dirty plans being thwarted by Putin.

If what these people were doing in Syria was honorable and acceptable to public opinion, why do they keep lying and hiding what they are doing?

There is no doubt Turkey’s act was premeditated. If the plane was in Turkish airspace, it would have been only for seconds over the point of land which sticks down into Syria.

You do not shoot someone for that, especially when it is well known what they are doing.

The plane crashed 4 kilometers inside Syria.

And we have the surviving pilot saying there was no warning at all.

In the end, I very much believe Erdogan will regret this rash act. Already, Russia is building a no-fly zone in the area.

The missile cruiser Moskva is to be stationed in the area with instructions to attack threats.

Putin is also putting the S-400 anti-aircraft system, the world’s most formidable, at the Russian base.

Still further, fighters will accompany all bombers now.

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: WHY IN GOD’S NAME SHOULD ASSAD RETIRE? WITH WHAT LEGITIMACY DO AMERICA AND BRITAIN CONTROL WHO LEADS SYRIA? ISRAEL’S WISHES AGAIN CREATE WAR

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

Why should Assad retire?

He represents the people of Syria better than anyone else.

The army supports him. The country’s main clan groups support him.

By all accounts a majority of Syrians support him.

Remember, David Cameron represents exactly 35% of British voters, hardly a democratic mandate.

Even were Cameron a more representative leader of Britain, what business is it of his to pass on the acceptability of Assad?

None.

That is clearly up to the Syrian people to decide.

Cameron of course is the recipient of regular calls from Tel Aviv on these matters, and Israel is one of the group that created the horror in Syria for its own interests.

Israel wants Assad out and Syria reduced to the kind of rump state that Iraq is after the American invasion.

What is really at stake here is never discussed in public, and certainly not by the inept and rather dishonest David Cameron.

What is at stake is the right of states to exist in peace without outside interference from aggressive states like America and Israel.

The roles of Turkey and Saudi Arabia in this horror are only possible because America approves. Nothing of this nature could happen otherwise.

 

 

 

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: AMERICA OR BRITAIN BOMBING SYRIA IS PLAIN OLD AGGRESSION – INTERNATIONAL RULE OF LAW – CAMERON’S QUEST FOR SOME OF BLAIR’S GOLD

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

Britain’s bombing in Syria – no matter what the targets – would be just plain old-fashioned aggression.

The government of Syria has not sought Britain’s help – and contrary to arrogant people like David Cameron, it does indeed have a government, as legitimate as most in the world.

The only people doing any bombing with the permission of the government are the Russians.

This is not a small point for all those concerned about the rule of law, which you might think would be a prime concern for all those who claim to oppose terror.

It took centuries to establish some rule of law in international affairs, and today states like America and Israel and Turkey ignore it completely.

And good old David Cameron wants to join the mob, getting his bit of attention.

And it can’t have escaped Cameron’s attention how handsomely the war criminal, Tony Blair, has been rewarded for doing his dirty part in tearing apart Iraq. He has been showered with gold and sinecures.

Wouldn’t it be natural for Cameron to expect a bit of that for dropping bombs on Syria?

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: ASH CARTER ABOUT RUSSIA UPSETTING ORDER – NOTE ON MH-17 – RUSSIAN AIRLINE CRASH AND POSSIBLE BOMB – ISRAEL’S DARK HISTORY OF USING TIME BOMBS AND OTHER ATTACKS MANY MANY TIMES – FALSE RADIO TRANSMISSIONS

John Chuckman

COMMENTS POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

Why does The Guardian quote a man like Ash Carter saying absolutely nothing?

This is puke tossed from high places, so much so that it is almost comic but for the deadly serious underlying facts.

All thinking people who keep informed on world affairs know it is America putting the world increasingly at risk.

Good God, America has killed millions in the last half century in many pointless wars and interventions.

And the entire, insane war on terror is largely its responsibility, a result of its arrogant and terribly unjust policies in the Middle East for decades.

Russia is a civilized and relatively peaceful country by comparison.

And all of today’s disasters – Libya, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine – are either America’s direct doing or benefit from America’s cooperation and support.

And virtually every tyrant we see – Egypt, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Turkey – has America’s blessings.

This is propaganda so completely twisted from truth, it resembles a bad dream.

Response to a reader referring to MH-17:

Yes, one of America’s “keyhole” satellites was overhead at the time of MH-17 being shot down.

These satellites have cameras comparable to the Hubble Space Telescope plus many other technologies of observation.

The Russians knew this of course, and they said so very early.

But not one scrap of data was ever submitted to investigators by America.

Clearly, there was a cover-up of MH-17’s downing to protect America’s infant coup-government in Ukraine.

And the pathetic Dutch, under America’s thumb, worked a year to produce a report containing nothing but the bits we already knew.

And in this case in Egypt, after days we have idiots asserting what happened with no evidence.

_____________________

If it was a bomb – and it is very premature to say it was – a strong suspect would be Israel’s secret service.

ISIS has no capacity for doing this on its own. Since ISIS and al-Nusra are very much doing Israel’s (and America’s) work in Syria, Israel’s displeasure with Putin is important.

Israel, as we know from many past events including in Iran, has often used timed explosive devices.

Response to a comment from another reader:

Your words reveal you as one of the pathetic boys who diligently search internet sites for discussions in which Israel is mentioned, and then post crap like this, being paid so much a line for the work.

I know perfectly well “ISIS” claimed credit. So what?

Indeed, ISIS is in part an Israeli creation.

Ever note how ISIS never attacks Israel in any way, which is exactly what such a wild-eyed bunch would do, were they authentic. They are frauds, mercenaries supplied and paid by America, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar to destroy Syria.

Now, Israel has used time bombs countless times, so involvement in the Russian airline downing would be nothing new. It used MEK members in Iran to murder a number of scientists with timed car bombs.

These ugly practices of Israel’s go all the way back to the Lavon Affair in 1954, when it was caught red-handed planting bombs in in Egypt. Even before, in 1946, there was the King David Hotel atrocity killing about a hundred people, the work of a Jewish terror group headed by Menachem Begin, a future prime minister. And need I remind readers yet again of Israel’s deliberate attack on an American surveillance ship, the USS Liberty, to cover up illegal activities in the Sinai during the 1967 War?

Yet another well-known example of deception involved President Reagan’s bombing of Gadhafi. That was the direct result of fake transmissions originating in Israel which succeeded in fooling the U.S. into attacking Gadhafi over his presumed guilt for an attack in Europe against American soldiers, something never proved, by the way, although innocents like Gadhafi’s young son died for it.

Israel also tried this dirty trick around the time of the sarin poison gas use in Syria. There were fake transmissions trying to make the Syrian Army look responsible for the attack in the hope America would bomb Assad, but in this case the truth became known in a timely fashion. It was the very terrorist forces Israel is known to support who used poison gas in Syria, gas perhaps supplied by Israel.

No one who criticizes such dirty work is guilty of hating anyone or anything except a government which behaves very much like that of the old Soviet Union.

People like you have pretty close to succeeded in making the term “anti-Semite” meaningless by using it dozens of times a day against people you don’t even know. For all you know, this writer could be Jewish.

How appallingly ignorant you are, and that is a pure fact and not name-calling.

People such as you are succeeding also in speeding the day when Israel collapses, again much like the Soviet Union, by trying to maintain a state built on endless injustice thickly coated with lies.

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: BRITISH GENERAL NICHOLAS HOUGHTON ATTACKS THE POLICIES OF JEREMY CORBYN – THE POISONOUS MIX OF THE MILITARY AND POLITICS – DAVID CAMERON REVEALED AS AN INCOMPETENT AND A GENUINE DANGER TO DEMOCRACY

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

It is completely inappropriate for a senior military man to be making comments about a politician.

Gen. Sir Nicholas Houghton’s words are shameful.

Politics and the military only successfully mix where there are coups and juntas.

What is most shameful here though is the implicit permission the general has from David Cameron to butt into politics.

With each passing day, Cameron proves a greater and greater incompetent and a danger to genuine democracy.

JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: CHARLIE HEBDO MAKES FUN OF RUSSIAN AIRLINE CRASH VICTIMS – THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARLIE HEBDO

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN SPUTNIK

Charlie Hebdo always was, and remains, something of a free-speech fraud.

It viciously attacks Muslims and Catholics and others, but it has not been an equal opportunity publication.

Things Jewish and Israeli are not attacked. And if they were in today’s France, the staff would face prosecution.

Readers may enjoy this, written after the Charlie Hebdo Affair in Paris:
