Apologies from Plato’s

by Taxi

Sincere apologies to readers for the slow activities on Plato’s this past couple of days.  Apart from the fact that there really is not much that’s worthy of sharing with you this Thanksgiving weekend – so much regurgitation of same stories out there – I am actually very distracted nursing one of my dogs.

I read the news today – oh dear

by Taxi

Today, Abu Dhabi confirmed that as per its invitation, Israel will imminently be setting up commercial offices in the heart of Abu Dhabi.  It’s nice to see Muslim Zionists and Jewish Zionists getting it on in public now.  If this trend in veracity continues, Wikileaks will soon become obsolete.

The Emirates, as a combined military force, was also today exposed for purchasing 450 Colombian mercenaries and shipping them off to Yemen to kill the poorest of Arabs there.  They did that because when they sent their own (Pakistani dual-citizen) army to Yemen before, their soldiers got sent back in bodybags.  They won’t be doing that again any time soon.  But they’re filthy rich enough that a single ruling Emiratee family can go shopping for soldiers from any war mall in the world.

POW WOW: Happy ThanksGiving America!

by Taxi

 

I’m not thankful for much, but what I’m thankful for I feel a deep, deep gratitude for.

Hey why not post your favorite ThanksGiving song in the comment section?  Or share a Thanksgiving story or joke.

Putin, NATO and the Turkish Banana Peel

by Taxi

Twenty four hours after two Turkish F-16’s downed a Russian SU-24 on Syrian territory, the smoke of the wreckage has cleared and revealed a banana skin with NATO’s logo stamped on it.

Obviously, Putin is too smart and sure-footed to slip and fall for such a primordial ruse.   But it is worth examining why NATO, which is primarily an American instrument, is resorting to such puerile and reckless tactics in its attempt to create justification to enter the Syrian battlefields, with intent to oust Bashar by force and divide up Syria to the benefits of the Caliphate and the Zionist states.  Do NATO commanders actually think that Putin’s intelligence is that degree of inept and short-sighted?  Or is this an act of desperation on NATO’s  part, with Turkey as front and fall guy?

The Unmagnificent Seven: Naming ISIS Allies

by Taxi

I-096 Anti-War

The Mainstream Media is doing all it can to avoid addressing the obvious:  naming, dissecting and damning ISIS’s major backers and supporters.  There are no such informative and sanguine reports being penned or published by the elite media; they are instead too busy gatecrashing the funerals of the fallen, wiping errant tears and taking selfies.

As usual, wilted pathos and not sound reason is what’s being fed to the public after yet another  horrific series of terrorist attacks.

Talmudism, Imperialism, Terrorism

by Taxi

Talmudism, that old desert ideology with its celebration of fire and brimstone and genocide needs to be urgently and openly addressed by concerned citizens and by the global intelligentsia alike.

Evidently, Talmudism is not confined to Judaic orthodoxies, indeed it has infiltrated the three Abrahamic faiths to the core.  It is an arcane ideology that is at war with modern Universalist principles, the very principles that if practiced would naturally lead to peaceful unification instead of the violent segregation of humanity.

Pow Wow – An Autumn Conundrum

by Taxi

I’ve woken up this morning with little enthusiasm for the news.  This tends to happen every now and then.  Therefore action will be slow here on Plato’s for the next several days.  I will get busy instead with planting my winter veggie garden and taking nice autumn hikes with my dogs before the serious rains hit the Levant.

There wouldn’t be this gap in action on the site if I had some help.  Or if the model of the site was not so demanding on a daily basis, ie the site being a newsstand and a newsstand’s nature is in providing fresh daily news.

Three-card Monte For the American Masses

by Taxi

We’re being hustled by the evil twins again.  The government.  And the mainstream media.

They’re playing a Three-card Monte on the public to counter the unexpected developments in Syria.  A double-act conspiring to hoodwink unsuspecting citizens.  A very dangerous and albeit illegal propaganda practice – especially considering that grave matters of war and peace are at stake.

The government and the media are currently working overtime to mix black propaganda, grey propaganda and white propaganda in a poison bowl of misinformation: and they’re handing it out to the public with a glossy smile.
