Please, Can You Stop Killing Us?

“Please, can you stop killing us?”

Because propaganda works both ways.

Russia’s alleged killing of Syrians in bombings. It is highly suggested readers go to the sources to verify reported civilian deaths by Russian bombings before these reports are taken at face value. One such spurious source are the White Helmets:

The Silent Slaughter of the US Air War

By Nicolas J. S. Davies
May 11, 2017

April 2017 was another month of mass slaughter and unimaginable terror for the people of Mosul in Iraq and the areas around Raqqa and Tabqa in Syria, as the heaviest, most sustained U.S.-led bombing campaign since the American War in Vietnam entered its 33rd month.

The Airwars monitoring group has compiled reports of 1,280 to 1,744 civilians killed by at least 2,237 bombs and missiles that rained down from U.S. and allied warplanes in April (1,609 on Iraq and 628 on Syria). The heaviest casualties were in and around Old Mosul and West Mosul, where 784 to 1,074 civilians were reported killed, but the area around Tabqa in Syria also suffered heavy civilian casualties.

In other war zones, as I have explained in previous articles (here and here), the kind of “passive” reports of civilian deaths compiled by Airwars have only ever captured between 5 percent and 20 percent of the actual civilian war deaths revealed by comprehensive mortality studies. Iraqbodycount, which used a similar methodology to Airwars, had only counted 8 percent of the deaths discovered by a mortality study in occupied Iraq in 2006.

Airwars appears to be collecting reports of civilian deaths more thoroughly than Iraqbodycount 11 years ago, but it classifies large numbers of them as “contested” or “weakly reported,” and is deliberately conservative in its counting. For instance, in some cases, it has counted local media reports of “many deaths” as a minimum of one death, with no maximum figure. This is not to fault Airwars’ methods, but to recognize its limitations in contributing to an actual estimate of civilian deaths.

Allowing for various interpretations of Airwars’ data, and assuming that, like such efforts in the past, it is capturing between 5 percent and 20 percent of actual deaths, a serious estimate of the number of civilians killed by the U.S.-led bombing campaign since 2014 would by now have to be somewhere between 25,000 and 190,000.

The Pentagon recently revised its own facetious estimate of the number of civilians it has killed in Iraq and Syria since 2014 to 352. That is less than a quarter of the 1,446 victims whom Airwars has positively identified by name.

Airwars has also collected reports of civilians killed by Russian bombing in Syria, which outnumbered its reports of civilians killed by U.S.-led bombing for most of 2016. However, since the U.S.-led bombing escalated to over 10,918 bombs and missiles dropped in the first three months of 2017, the heaviest bombardment since the campaign began in 2014, Airwars’ reports of civilians killed by U.S.-led bombing have surpassed reports of deaths from Russian bombing.

Because of the fragmentary nature of all Airwars’ reports, this pattern may or may not accurately reflect whether the U.S. or Russia has really killed more civilians in each of these periods. There are many factors that could affect that.

For example, Western governments and NGOs have funded and supported the White Helmets and other groups who report civilian casualties caused by Russian bombing, but there is no equivalent Western support for the reporting of civilian casualties from the Islamic State-held areas that the U.S. and its allies are bombing. If Airwars’ reporting is capturing a greater proportion of actual deaths in one area than another due to factors like this, it could lead to differences in the numbers of reported deaths that do not reflect differences in actual deaths.

#2963: AD Links Serco Pig-Farm Banks To Clinton Giustra Zulu Bridge, Comey Fake News ISIS Snuff

To Whom It May Concern:

Field McConnell – United States Marine and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – has linked Serco’s pig-farm banks’ alleged use of Zulu timing signals to synchronize Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (Canada) missions with the federal bridge certification authority and to allow former FBI and HSBC director James Comey to supply fake news of ISIS snuff films for high frequency trading by pig-farm bankers and the enrichment of a media elite.

McConnell looks forward to an invitation to brief President Trump in the presence of retired Marine Corps two-star Randolph “Tex” Alles, director of the United States Secret Service, on how ISIS can be destroyed by purging Serco and Clinton Giustra Enterprise networks of their pig-farm banking elites.

“Digital Fires Instructor Serco – Camp Pendleton, CA Posted 377 days agoUses information derived from all military disciplines (e.g., aviation, ground combat, command and control, combat service support, intelligence, and opposing forces) to determine changes in enemy capabilities, vulnerabilities, and probable courses of action.”

“Serco farewell to NPL after 19 years of innovation 8 January 2015 
Serco said goodbye to the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) at the end of December 2014 after 19 years of extraordinary innovation and science that has seen the establishment build a world-leading reputation and deliver billions of pounds of benefit for the UK economy. During that period under Serco’s management and leadership, NPL has delivered an extraordinary variety and breadth of accomplishments for the UK’s economy and industry. Some of the key achievements during that time have been:… It has been estimated that work carried out by the Centre of Carbon Measurement at NPL will save eight million tonnes of carbon emissions reductions (2% of UK footprint) and over half a billion pounds in economic benefit over the next decade…. NPL’s caesium fountain atomic clock is accurate to 1 second in 158 million years and NPL is playing a key role in introducing rigour to high frequency [spot fixed] trading in the City through NPL [Zulu] Time.” 

“The Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (Canada), a registered charity based in Vancouver, B.C., devoted $737,441 — amounting to 78 per cent of its expenditures — to management and administration in 2014. The amount includes spending on office supplies and expenses, salaries and professional and consulting fees. That same year, according to the return filed to the Canada Revenue Agency and published online, the organization devoted $205,419 to charitable programs, accounting for 22 per cent of its expenditures.”

“The Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP) is pioneering an innovative approach to poverty alleviation.

CGEP works to provide underserved communities access to markets, jobs, and training by incorporating individuals into one of three market-driven models – Distribution Enterprises, Supply Chain Enterprises, and Training Center Enterprises. Through these models, CGEP seeks to help people work themselves out of poverty.”

High frequency trading is an automated trading platform used by large investment banks, hedge funds and institutional investors which utilizes powerful computers to transact a large number of orders at extremely high speeds.

FEBRUARY 10, 2016 by: Bryan Harris in Hong Kong The families of several US citizens killed at the hands of some of Mexico’s most notorious drug cartels are suing HSBC, claiming the bank can be held liable as it allowed the syndicates to launder billions of dollars. Sample the FT’s top stories for a week You select the topic, we deliver the news. Select topic Enter email address Invalid email Sign up By signing up you confirm that you have read and agree to the terms and conditions, cookie policy and privacy policy. “As a proximate result of HSBC’s material support to the Mexican drug cartels, numerous lives, including those of the plaintiffs, have been destroyed,” read the complaint filed in a federal court in Texas. The lawsuit is likely to raise fresh questions about the relationship between the cartels and the bank, which in 2012 paid more than $1.9bn to US authorities for permitting the laundering $881m of drug trafficking money. Gareth Hewett, a spokesman for HSBC, said the bank intends to vigorously defend itself against the lawsuit, which in stark language details the macabre murders of several US citizens in 2010. In one case, Rafael Morales Valencia was abducted on his wedding day as he left the church with his new wife. Along with his uncle and brother, he was transferred to a safe house by members of the Sinaloa cartel, where the men were tortured and asphyxiated. In another case, Lesley Enriquez Redelfs, an employee of the US consulate office in border city Juárez, and her husband, Arthur, were ambushed and shot by members of the enforcement arm of the Juárez cartel after leaving a children’s birthday party hosted by the diplomatic office. “Without the ability to place, layer and integrate their illicit proceeds into the global financial network, the cartels’ ability to corrupt law enforcement and public officials, and acquire personnel, weapons and ammunition, vehicles, planes, communication devices, raw materials for drug production and all other instrumentalities essential to their operations would be substantially impeded,” the complaint read. 

“Thus, by facilitating the laundering of billions of dollars of drug cartel proceeds through its banks, HSBC materially supported the terrorist acts of cartels.” The plaintiffs claim the bank is liable under the US Anti-Terrorism Act, which says the survivors of those killed in terrorist incidents may sue for damages. However, none of Mexico’s handful of drug syndicates are presently officially classified as terrorist organisations by US authorities. As part of the 2012 deferred prosecution agreement in the US, HSBC acknowledged compliance failures and ignoring red flags in its Mexican operations — lapses seized upon by the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. They highlighted admissions that HSBC was considered the “preferred financial institution for drug cartels and money launderers” and how launderers even used “specially shaped boxes” to move cash through the precise dimensions of the banks’ teller windows. Mr Hewett of HSBC said the company was “committed to combating financial crime.” 

“We are and have taken strict steps to help keep bad actors out of the global financial system,” he added.

“Trump: Comey ‘Should Have Never Exonerated’ Hillary Clinton 
by Josh Feldman | 8:42 pm, May 12th, 2017 NBC 
Nightly News tonight released another part of Lester Holt’s interview with President Donald Trump, in which the president talks about James Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The president said that “what Comey did had good moments for me as a candidate,” but went on to clarify, “I’m only talking as a candidate I’m not saying as President where I want to do what is right for the country necessarily, I’m talking purely as a candidate for me to get votes.”

And then he had this to say about how Comey handled the Clinton investigation:

“When he came out with the scathing set of circumstances––the server, the illegal server, the e-mails, 33,000 e-mails that you get subpoenaed and then you don’t show and you erase those, you delete them, you get rid of them, you acid wash them. When he did all of that stuff, it was disgraceful when he’s covering everything point after point. I was with lawyers watching that… I happen to have lawyers, unrelated lawyers and they would say wow, she’s guilty here, guilty. Guilty. Guilty. Then he gets to the end and he says she’s free as a bird.”

He concluded that Comey had “a lot of pressure put on and exonerated her. He should have never exonerated her.” In his interview with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro today, Trump said multiple times that Comey gave Clinton “a free pass.” Watch above, via NBC News.”

“James Comey – Profile of an Elite Fixer

“Robert Pickton’s siblings knew what serial killer was doing, lawsuits by victims’ children allege 
Lori Culbert, Postmedia News | May 9, 2013 11:55 PM ET 
More from Postmedia News 
Robert Pickton’s siblings knew what serial killer was doing, lawsuits by victims’ children allege VANCOUVER — Four children of Vancouver’s missing women have filed lawsuits against serial killer Robert Pickton and two of his siblings over the loss of their mothers.

The civil suits filed Thursday also name as defendants the provincial justice ministry, the city of Vancouver, and five RCMP officers.

The lawsuits name Pickton’s brother, Dave Pickton, and sister, Linda Wright, because they were part owners in the family farm. 

“David Pickton and Linda Wright knew that Robert Pickton and others tortured and killed sex workers and other persons at the Pickton property, and were aware that the actions and propensities of Robert Pickton represented a danger to persons attending the Pickton property,” the lawsuits say.

The lawsuits, filed by Vancouver lawyer Jason Gratl, say the deaths of their mothers caused the children to suffer loss of emotional and financial support, loss of guidance in developing cultural identity, and psychological trauma.

The allegations in the lawsuits have not been proven in court. The defendants have not yet filed written responses.

The lawsuits were filed by Sarah Jean de Vries, daughter of Sarah de Vries; Theresa Mongovius, daughter of Cynthia Feliks; Troy and Joel Boen, sons of Yvonne Boen; and Melissa Marin, Carol Cote and Donald Cote, children of Dianne Rock.

DNA belonging to all four women — de Vries, Feliks, Boen and Rock — were found on Pickton’s Port Coquitlam pig farm. He faced first-degree murder in their deaths, but the charges were stayed after he was convicted in 2007 of killing six other missing women.

The lawsuits argue police should have been aware Pickton was attacking sex workers in the Downtown Eastside, in part because he was charged in 1997 with the attempted murder of a woman on his farm. Those charges were stayed, but a RCMP corporal put a note on a police database to warn all officers that Pickton was a threat to women on the street.

“Notwithstanding their knowledge of risks to sex workers, [Vancouver police] and RCMP failed to warn Sarah of the specific risk that a serial killer was active in the Downtown Eastside,” the de Vries lawsuit says.

“The VPD and RCMP owed and breached a duty of care to Sarah, as a member of the public and as an individual within a group at heightened risk of harm from a serial killer.”

The lawsuits allege police failed to pursue all investigative leads, mismanaged information, were “inadequate and inept” with surveillance and undercover operations, and failed to confirm or rule out suspects.

The RCMP officers being sued are Supt. Ric Hall, Cpl. Frank Henley, Const. Ruth Chapman (Yurkiw), Supt. Earl Moulton and Staff Sgt. Brad Zalys. Some are now retired.

The lawsuits allege a Crown prosecutor was negligent when she stayed the charges against Pickton in the 1997 attack.

“Crown counsel knew or ought to have known that entering a stay of proceedings would increase the risk that Robert Pickton would continue to cause death and serious injury,” the documents say. Postmedia News”

“The Mount Salak Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) crash occurred on 9 May 2012 when an SSJ-100 aircraft crashed on a demonstration flight operating from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia.[1] A day later, on 10 May 2012, the wreckage of the Sukhoi Superjet was spotted on a cliff in Mount Salak, a volcano in the province of West Java. Due to the widespread debris field where the aircraft hit the mountain, rescuers concluded that the aircraft directly impacted the rocky side of the mountain and that there was “no chance of survival”.[2][3] On 12 May 2012, it was reported that the remains of several victims’ bodies had been recovered and airlifted to Halim Airport and then taken to the National Police Hospital for identification.[4] The final report, released 18 December 2012, indicated that the accident was caused by crew members ignoring terrain warnings that they had incorrectly attributed to a database problem. The crew had turned off theterrain warning system and were unaware that they were operating in close proximity to mountains. The crew, including the captain, were engaging in conversation with potential customers as the aircraft impacted the ground.[5]”

Development of the Sukhoi Superjet 100 began in 2000.[11] On 19 December 2002, Sukhoi Civil Aircraft and Boeing Commercial Airplanes signed a medium-term Cooperation Agreement to work together on the design. Boeing consultants had already been advising Sukhoi for a year.[12] On 10 October 2003, the technical board of the project selected the suppliers of major subsystems.[13] The project officially passed its third stage of development on 12 March 2004, meaning that Sukhoi could now start selling the Superjet 100 to customers.[14] On 13 November 2004, the Superjet 100 passed the fourth stage of development, implying that the Superjet 100 was now ready for commencing of prototype production.[15] In August 2005, a contract between the Russian government and Sukhoi was signed. Under the agreement, the Superjet 100 project would receive 7.9 billion rubles of research and development financing under the Federal Program titled Development of Civil Aviation in Russia in 2005–2009.[16]”

Clinton Foundation, private sector, governments, local communities, and other NGOs.[5]… After he left investment banking in 1996, Giustra formed Lions Gate Entertainment in 1997, and served as chairman from 1997–2003.[9] He hoped to capitalize on the growing film industry in Vancouver. The company bought a number of small production facilities and distributors. Its first success was American Psycho, which began a trend of producing and distributing films far too controversial for the major American studios. Other successes included Affliction, Gods and Monsters, Dogma, and the Michael Moore documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, which turned out to be the studio’s highest grossing film. In 2000, Giustra left the firm and it was taken over by Jon Feltheimer and Michael Burns. Giustra sold most of his stake in Lionsgate in 2003.

In December 2010, Giustra returned to Lions Gate Entertainment as a member of the board of directors.[10] In March 2012, he started a new joint venture with Lionsgate and Thunderbird Films, called Sea to Sky Entertainment, which will focus on projects in the television industry.”

The charitable foundation run by Hillary Clinton and her family has received as much as $81m from wealthy international donors who were clients of HSBC’s controversial Swiss bank.

Leaked files from HSBC’s Swiss banking division reveal the identities of seven donors to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation with accounts in Geneva.

They include Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate and one of the foundation’s biggest financial backers, and Richard Caring, the British retail magnate who, the bank’s internal records show, used his tax-free Geneva account to transfer $1m into the New York-based foundation.” 

“Serco suffers profits collapse but on ‘path to recovery’ says CEO 
Troubled outsourcer Serco details full extent of its woes and kicks off £555m rights issue 
By Alan Tovey, Industry Editor 11:22AM GMT 12 Mar 2015 
Shares in the company, which had more than half a billion pounds wiped off its market value in November when it stunned the market with a huge profit warning, tumbled again as Mr Soames set out the full extent of the Serco’s troubles. Revenue fell 6.7pc to £3.96bn – the first decline in 25 years – and the company swung to a £632m trading loss as it took £1.3bn of provisions on onerous contracts, asset impairments and other charges. On a pre-tax basis the performance was even worse, with a loss of £1.35bn. .. The company’s rights issue, on which Rothschild is advising, will see 549m new shares issued. The scheme is on a 1:1 basis and is priced at 101p, a deeply discounted 51.1pc compared with the previous closing price, and a 34pc discount on theoretical ex-rights price. The fundraising – which is subject to shareholder approval – is fully underwritten and the proceeds will be used to cut Serco’s debt by £450m. At the end of the year Serco’s net debt stood at £682m. The company said that subject to the rights issue’s completion, it had struck an agreement with its creditors to refinance its funding. It is understood that the commission being charged by the rights issue’s underwriters is 2pc – a rate back down at pre-crisis levels and half what many banks were able to impose during rescue fundraisings in the wake of the crash.” A source close to the company said: “This a noticeable reduction in commission charged by underwriters until fairly recently, it’s back at normal levels. “There’s no element in this deal that indicates it’s anything but a straightforward fundraising of new equity and a sign of the backing of Rupert Soames and his new management team.”

by Chris Blackhurst Published: 01 Dec 2007 Last Updated: 09 Oct 2013 In 1994, he was head-hunted by Serco to be its European finance director, although, as he puts it: ‘I found Serco – the company fitted everything I was looking for.’ When he joined, annual turnover was £238m. In 2006, it was £2.5bn.

On 11 September 2001, he was in the World Trade Center. He was on the 47th floor when the plane hit, talking to Serco shareholders. They got out – but not the people in his previous meeting. He does not like talking about that terrible day. ‘It confirmed my faith. It renewed my zest for getting the balance right and made me realise that time is not always your own. It made me think about my family and my health more – and about putting the balance back. You know, it’s not a bad thing, to step back sometimes.'”
