Following Washington’s move to increase its military footprint in Asia, China has declared it is building a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier of a size to compete with the mightiest in the US naval fleet.
The GCC also agreed to create a Gulf Academy for Strategic and Security Studies to be hosted in the United Arab Emirates, this would include a shared police force. Ratifying the draft resolution for establishing the police force, the GCC Supreme Council stressed that “the new body will boost security and help expand anti-terror co-operation and co-ordination among member states.” Earlier in December, GCC states approved the founding of a unified military command structure to tackle threats to the Gulf region. GCC Joint Military Command will be based in Riyadh.
Dr. Kevin Barrett, a member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, rejects the official narrative, saying Saudi Arabia is a "puppet of the US and other Western governments.”
“There were no hijackers, there were no hijackings, this has been proved in many, many ways,” Dr. Barrett said on Saturday. “Ten of the 19 guys they blamed were still alive after 9/11,” he added.
Rather, he said, “Saudi intelligence was used by the real perpetrators of Sept. 11 to create a legend, to set up the patsies who would be blamed for this event.”
Dr. Barrett said a “suppressed” report by the Congressional Joint Inquiry of 2002 would shed light on the true perpetrators of the attacks, should it become public. The controversial document, however, has remained classified to this day.
Former Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) who chaired the inquiry at the time has stated that the document includes information “implicating a foreign government,” Dr. Barrett said. “But there has been such a cover-up,” he added.

The Enduring Power of Zionism's Propaganda Lies ~ link ~ That’s the end of the short summary as in my book. I would welcome the opportunity to sit with the BBC’s news and current affairs chiefs to outline the need for the truth of history. If such a meeting took place the main point I would stress, fully documented, is that Zionism’s claim that Israel has lived and still lives in danger of annihilation is propaganda nonsense to facilitate the assertion that Israel is the VICTIM, (when actually it is the AGGRESSOR and OPPRESSOR), and therefore must be free to act with impunity in any way it thinks fit, even when its actions demonstrate contempt for international law and the human and political rights of the Palestinians. But there will be no such meeting. Partly out of fear of offending Zionism too much and provoking its wrath, the BBC’s news and current affairs chiefs have no desire to put the truth about the making and sustaining of the Israel-Palestine conflict on their agenda...
I had, I wrote, a totally opposite belief – that the only way to stop the monster of anti-Semitism going on the rampage again in a foreseeable future if Zionism continued to have its way is by telling the truth of history, to show, among other things, why it is wrong to blame all Jews for what a minority have done and are still doing in the name of Zionism.
