If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.


Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Now maybe I’m getting a little senile but I’ll be buggered if I can figure out what the hell is going on here, and perhaps someone on this blog can explain it because, at least to me, there seems to be something terribly wrong.

PM Tony Abbott understandably wants no part in further sanctions against Russia, he has taken a neutral position which may assist in recovery teams getting access to MH17.

Obama of course has no interest in the crash scene and continues, in between the first and second nines, to pressure Europe to pile economic hurt on Putin.

Okay, please tell me where I’ve got it wrong. The former democratically elected President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown by a bunch of Putin-hating ‘progressives’ in the “Orange Revolution”.

Fair enough, Victor and Vladimir are part of the East European corrupt mob and you wouldn’t want either of them over for dinner. Anyway, Victor hightailed it back to Moscow, he would have been killed had he stayed.

The new tyrant of Ukraine, President Poroshenko, is now systematically liquidating Russian sympathisers in eastern Ukrainian rural cities while Obama gifts him  $US23 million in aid. .

These Russian sympathisers are proudly Ukranian but consider themsleves ethnically Russian and would like a return to the security of the old USSR.

Obama is supporting the Poroshenko regime in trying to ethnically cleanse its eastern citizens off the planet. A quarter million refugees have fled the heavy Ukrainian artillery that is raining down on undefended rural communities.

Those who have remained to try to protect their farmlands and businesses have begged Russia’s Putin to assist them to stop Poroshenko’s military committing genocide on Ukraine’s unarmed citizens.

Putin has attempted to assist them but is losing the battle.

These are Ukrainians who Putin is attempting to defend from Ukraine, not Russians. WTF am I missing here? Why is Russia and not Ukraine the subject of sanctions?

Obama says he wants Putin to desist or he will impose more sanctions on Russia’s economy. Desist? Desist from fucking what? Desist from attempting to stop Poroshenko from massacring his own citizens?

It is the Ukrainian military that is preventing securing the MH17 site! Not Russia’s demonised “separatists” and so-called “rebels”.

We may never know who shot down MH17, certainly it was neither Putin nor Poroshenko, but some idiot redneck who had no idea what the missile had locked on to. There were Ukrainian jet fighters in the same airspace at the same time.

It needs to be asked just what side Obama is on, because so far he has supported and armed the Shia crazy ISIS rebels, he has supported and grovelled to the Saudis who support the overthrow of Assad’s Syria and has shown a soft spot for Hamas which is financed by Iran and Qatar to kill Jews and wipe Israel off the map.

If Obama gets us into World War III we should at least know why, if only for the kids’ schoolbooks. 


As gunglesaid, Dear uncle, ----- POOF.

uncleron You speak so well anyone would be proud to take you anywhere and introduce you to the best sewer rats that can be found. You should be ashamed to use the word " Uncle " as your avatar.

Gunther - you show remarkable wisdom, manners and innate calmness. I would have told those two drunken, drug ridden, brain-dead, illiterate morons - alpinist & wiseone - to blow it out of their over-used, desensitised, public-use arseholes.

Gunther a towel head . More likely a nazi

Good education or not I can see the truth when it's put out in front. You're blind as well as brainLESS.Good on Kate for having a baby, who told you, oh you read "Woman's Day". What is "Woman's Day", who is Kate.

Gunther, the pea brain. You certainly have missed something but not a couple of days ago, you missed out when they were handing out brains. Parts were shown where the misile exploded and penetrated the body of the plane. They may never find any of the misile parts because the Ukraine gov. wouldn't let anyone near the site untill it was all removed and I might add the separatists showed themselves on t.v. wearing watches and other jewellery they pilfered from the deceased. Good one scum.

The state of Israel places itself above international law.

Imposed on the U.N. on the 11 May 1949 by the will of the United States, the State of Israel was only admitted to Palestine on three conditions :

1 - Not to touch the status of Jerusalem;

2 - To allow Palestinian Arabs to come back to their homes;

3 - To respect the borders fixed by the partition decision.

Speaking about this U.N. resolution on "sharing", taken well before its admission,

Ben Gurion declares:

"The State of Israel considers the U.N. resolution of 29 November 1947 to be null and void."

Source : "New York Times", 6 December 1953.

Echoing the theories already quoted of the American Albright, on the parallel between American and Zionist expansion, General Moshe Dayan wrote:

"Take the American declaration of Independence. It contains no mention of territorial

limits. We are not obliged to fix the limits of the State."

Source : "Jerusalem Post" 10 August 1967

Policy corresponds precisely to this law of the jungle : the "partition" of Palestine, in line with the U.N. resolution was never respected.

Already, the resolution on the partition of Palestine, adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations (at the time composed of a massive majority of western states) on the 29 November 1947, indicated the designs of the West on their "forward stronghold" : On this date the Jews constituted 32% of the population and possessed 5.6% of the land : they would receive 56% of the territory, including the most fertile land. These decisions had been secured under U.S. pressure. President Truman put the State Department under unprecedented pressure. Under-Secretary of State S. Welles wrote:

"By direct order of the White House American civil servants had to use direct or indirect pressure... To ensure the necessary majority in the final vote."

Source : S. Welles, "We need not fail" Boston, 1948, p.63

The Minister of Defense of the time, James Forrestal, confirms:

"The methods used to pressure and to constrain the other nations within the U.N. were close to scandalous."

Source : "Forrestal's Memoirs", N.Y., The Viking Press. 1951, p.363

One day after what otherwise would be an epic scandal (in any other administration) when it was revealed that not only did the CIA indeed spy on the Senate, but had lied when it denied doing so (something for which it subsequently apologized, the spying that is, not the lying) Obama had to field a question about just this topic during one of his daily populist press conferences in which as usual he took credit for anything that is seasonally-adjusted right with the economy (not much) and blamed all that is wrong on the republicans. This is what he said:

“In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, we did some things that were wrong. We did a whole lot of things that were right, but we tortured some folks. We did things that were contrary to our values.” Eco-Fascist shot by farmer. The wonderful Pat Condell. The ugliest newspaper in Britain. Absolutely brilliant critique of what passes for left wing journalism. The Guardians misinformation also operates in Australia. Applies equally well to Fauxfacts, the ABC et al.

Thanks mate. But what has Putin done that even comes close to Stalin, Hitler or Obama's war crimes?

The Zionist colonial entity, mercilessly is continuing its aggression against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, killing at least 1370 people (about 300 of them kids) and injuring over 7,700 (from July 8, 2014). In the last few hours, 1 Palestinian was killed in Rafah, 5 others in Khan Yunis, 1 Palestinian journalist was killed by […]

Bolivia on Wednesday renounced a visa exemption agreement with Israel in protest over its offensive in Gaza, and declared it a terrorist state.

President Evo Morales announced the move during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba.

It “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” he said.

The treaty has allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia without a visa since 1972.

Morales said the Gaza offensive shows “that Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”

More than two weeks of fighting in Gaza have left 1,300 dead and 6,000 wounded amid an intense Israeli air and ground campaign in response to missile attacks by the Islamist militant group Hamas.

In the latest development, 16 people were killed after two Israeli shells slammed into a United Nations school, drawing international protests.

Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009 over a previous military operation in Gaza.

In mid-July, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity.”

COMMENT: Malaysia recently conducted a tribunal which found Israel guilty of war crimes. Shortly afterwards Malaysia flight 370 disappeared, possibly to have returned in Ukraine. I would not be surprised to see some major catastrophe befall Bolivia as a result of this declaration. Ebola outbreak? Major earthquake? A Latin American version of ISIS?

If we survive. Barmy by name muhomMADist by his actions.

@ Logical, Yanakovych with a luxury home or Poroshenko's meat grinder killing his own people? Warning this link is graphic, at the end former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko's rant on how they should kill all the people in the Donbas.

Is the Russian annexation of parts of Ukraine much different to the German annexation of Sudetenland?

About Ukraine... don't worry about it! The US Congress just voted to sue Obama for exceeding his powers and constantly abusing the American Constitution. Obama says it's a stunt. Congress says it's to save America's Constitution and the American way ... freedom and democracy against authoritarianism and environmentalism.

Playing devil's advocate again and muddying the waters somewhat Larry? What fun!

Between the time that Israel declared itself a state in May of 1948 and the summer of 2005, Israel killed 50,000 Palestinians, according to Israeli Historian Ilan Pappe. And since October of 2000, Israel has killed 6348 Palestinians, according to the web site, “If American Knew”. The latter figure averages to about 2 Palestinians killed per day by Israel (1.932, by my calculation. )

One thing is certain: Israel is not the victim, as it is constantly screaming, but the victimizer.
What then is the conflict all about? What is the theme that runs through the entire history of Zionism?
It is about the ongoing program of Zionism to destroy the Palestinians as a people and to assume possession of their ancestral land.

There are Zionists who would settle for a two state solution and a withdrawal of the Israel presence to the 1967 borders allowing a mini-Palestinian state on the remaining 22% of Palestine. But the reality on the ground is that Israel has expanded beyond the point of retreat with 300,000 settlers in the West Bank, 183,000 in East Jerusalem, as of this writing, with 200 or more settlements in the West Bank some twice the size of Manhattan containing their own, schools, universities, shopping malls and the billions of dollars of invested infrastructure, both private and public, and a segregated, for-Jews-only, highway system, 300 miles long, cutting up the West Bank with Palestinians imprisoned between these disjoint concrete and asphalt barriers.

But whatever the views of these moderate Zionists, who call for contraction to the ’67 borders, the dynamics of Israel is and has always been expansion. The centrifugal forces pushing the expansion are multivaried and complicated. They are religious, they are military, they are for want of security, they are from want of power for its own sake, but they are persistent and they have an entire century of momentum and a century of Zionism on the move.

What the Palestinian- Israeli conflict is all about then is the destruction of the Palestinian people and their evacuation and the complete takeover of Palestine to the Jordan River by the Jewish state. And what hangs win the balance is whether or not the Palestinians will be destroyed and eliminated as a people with a distinct culture and history and with an attachment to the land of their birth and their parent’s and ancestor’s births.
