Turkish Prosecutors Seek 55,000 Years in Prison for Alleged Coup Conspirators



 


Turkish prosecutor Bulent Karakus called Wednesday for multiple life sentences, totaling some 55,880 years in prison, to be handed down to senior members of a group suspected of orchestrating the 2016 coup attempt in the country.

The trial, the first in a series of what will be many trials of individuals accused of taking part in the attempted coup in July 2016, is underway at the 17th Heavy Penal Court in the Turkish capital of Ankara. Karakus recommended 252 aggravated life sentences for 37 of the 224 defendants grouped together in the first round of trials over the coup. According to AFP, it’s not uncommon for serious criminals to receive multiple life sentences in Turkey.

This first trial group is considered to be the most significant of the many that will follow across the country. Tens of thousands could face prison time for their alleged roles in the coup attempt.

An “aggravated” life sentence is different from a typical one and requires harsher detention conditions than a regular life sentence. The sentence was introduced after Turkey abolished the death penalty in 2004, although Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has floated bringing capital punishment back for those who were involved in the coup.

Reportedly, the prosecutor also demanded one collection of defendants face an additional 55,880 years in prison, although the figures are disputed. According to Hürriyet, Turkey’s most-circulated newspaper, the 55,880-year recommendation was in regards to 12 people with suspected links to US-based Turkish preacher Fetullah Gulen, who the government has accused of orchestrating the coup. The pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper says, however, that the prosecutor requested 56,000 additional years in total for 37 of the defendants.

AFP reported that the Dogan News Agency described the sentencing recommendations as a “record” in Turkey if the judge follows suit.

Several formerly high-ranking military officials in the trial group are accused of leading the “Peace at Home Council,” the name of the group that did claim responsibility for the overthrow attempt. The government alleges that the group is connected to Gulen, whose followers are considered terrorists in the country, although the group says it is not affiliated with the cleric. Gulen, who resides in Pennsylvania, has denied involvement of the coup and has accused Turkish President Erdogan of orchestrating it himself.

The first batch of defendants are facing charges of trying to overthrow Turkey’s Parliament and government, attempting to kill the president, murdering 250 people and attempting to murder another 2,735 people. The indictment accuses them of using “35 planes, 37 helicopters, 246 armored vehicles and around 4,000 light weapons” to carry out their deeds.

Theresa May vows to keep funding White Helmets despite alleged Al-Qaeda links (VIDEO)

During PMQs Labour’s Matthew Pennycook, the Greenwich and Woolwich MP pushed the PM on whether or not she would continue to fund the The White Helmets, officially known as the Syria Civil Defence, a volunteer group that operates in areas controlled by jihadist and Al-Qaeda-linked groups in Syria.

“Despite the ever-present threat of death… the rescue workers of the White Helmets have never stopped saving the lives of their fellow Syrians,” Pennycook said. “Last week the Trump administration froze their US funding.

“With thousands of civilian lives at risk will the prime minister step up, pledge the government to plug the funding shortfall that now exists, and ensure these heroic rescue workers can continue their work?”

May did not hesitate in her response, praising the efforts of the non-governmental search-and-rescue organization.

“We recognise the very important and valuable work that the White Helmets are doing,” she said. “They are, as he says, doing this in horrendously difficult conditions. They are incredibly brave to be continuing with that work.”

The UK PM then pledged to review the current financial package for the White Helmets, hinting at further funding down the track. “We do support them, we will continue to support them, and my right honourable friend, the international development secretary will be looking at the level of that support in the future,” May said.

Although the White Helmets say they act solely as a makeshift emergency response team in a time of crisis, claiming to have heroically saved more than 70,000 lives in war-torn Syria, others question its motives. Footage from Syria has repeatedly appeared to show members of the White Helmets assisting jihadist groups, while multiple accounts from civilians suggested they only helped “their own” and use civilians caught up in conflict only for publicity.

Child ‘Victim’ Of Alleged Syrian Gas Attack Speaks Out, Says He Was Given Food To Make The Video


By John Vibes. The Free Thought Project

In the weeks since the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria, evidence contradicting the official story continues to surface.

This week, journalists on the ground in Syria recorded interviews with some of the people who were there for the alleged attacks – people who actually appeared in the video that was shared widely by Syrian rebels associated with the White Helmets on April 7th, provoking attacks from the United States Military and its allies.

One of the most compelling interviews was with an 11-year-old boy named Hassan Diab who can be clearly matched with one of the victims in the video. Fortunately, the young boy is safe and in good health, and suffered no chemical attack symptoms, but he is surely traumatized and confused by what he experienced.

Hassan told Russian journalist Evgeny Poddubny that he was walking the streets with his mother in search of food, when one of the people that they encountered insisted that they go to the hospital.

“Somebody was shouting that we had to go to the hospital, so we went there. When I came in, some people grabbed me and started pouring water over my head,”  Hassan said.

Imagine being a young hungry child walking into a hospital expecting to find some food, only to be grabbed by strangers and soaked with water along with dozens of other children, all the while being surrounded with lights and cameras.

The boy was eventually found by his father, who said that he saw no evidence of a chemical attack.

“I didn’t hear anything about the chemical attack, I was outside but didn’t hear anything. I heard that my family was in the hospital. I went to the hospital, walked upstairs, and found my wife and children. I asked them what had happened, and they said people outside were shouting about some smell and told them to go to the hospital. At the hospital, they gave dates and cookies to the kids,” he said.

While it would be possible that a child walking the streets could get mixed up with actual victims in the midst of the chaos that takes place after this type of incident, even the doctors at the hospital that encountered these victims didn’t see evidence of a chemical attack.

One doctor told reporters that they saw victims who were hurt and killed in bombings that were regularly taking place in the city, but no trace of chemical agents.

“People from the White Helmets told us about the use of chemical weapons, but we saw no sign of that. If chemical weapons were used against those people, our medical staff would have also been affected, he said.

After the video was published on Thursday, Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia told Rossiya 1 that Moscow is planning to show the video about Hassan at the next meeting of the UN Security Council.

Two other alleged witnesses say that they were working at the hospital during the time of the attack, and they also did not see evidence of chemical agents.

“We heard an explosion and someone said it was a chemical weapon, we ran to where the noise came from and started pouring water over the people, but they seemed to be ok and then walked away with any help,” one witness said.

“People got so confused, someone started pouring water over peoples heads saying there had been a chemical attack, I was at the spot with my wife and daughter but neither of us experienced any symptoms of chemical poisoning,” another said.

Hassan’s story is very similar to that of Omran Daqneesh, a Syrian boy reportedly pulled from the rubble of a bombed out building. Daqneesh’s image was broadcast around the world and used as a propaganda tool against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The truth was later revealed by The Free Thought Project and others that it is highly likely the opposition itself destroyed the very building in which Daqneesh was residing, then used his image to promote the myth that he was attacked by Syrian forces.

According to The New York Times, Mr. Daqneesh told the real story of what happened immediately following the bombing. He never supported the opposition and appeared on Syrian state-run media to proclaim his support for Assad. He described how the White Helmets used his son as a propaganda tool without his permission.

”They took Omran, got him to the ambulance, where they filmed him. It was against my will. I was still upstairs in the house,” Mr. Daqneesh said, adding that he was pressured, and even offered money to use his son as a pawn in propaganda against the Assad regime.

As we reported this week, even the western mainstream media is beginning to question the official story. World-renowned journalist Robert Fisk pointed out that there was no actual evidence for these attacks, aside from videos from the White Helmets, a group that is notorious for creating propaganda.

Western Media Finally Investigates Alleged Chemical Attack in Syria and Finds “NO EVIDENCE”

syriasyria

Douma, Syria – Critically acclaimed war reporter Robert Fisk published a stunning account of the alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7, which included testimony from a doctor who works at the hospital featured in the widely circulated video purported to be the aftermath of a Syrian government chemical strike.

In an exclusive first-hand report for the Independent, Fisk, who has twice won the British Press Awards’ Journalist of the Year prize and is a seven-time winner of the British Press Awards’ Foreign Correspondent of the Year, reported:

This is the story of a town called Douma, a ravaged, stinking place of smashed apartment blocks–and of an underground clinic whose images of suffering allowed three of the Western world’s most powerful nations to bomb Syria last week. There’s even a friendly doctor in a green coat who, when I track him down in the very same clinic, cheerfully tells me that the “gas” videotape which horrified the world– despite all the doubters–is perfectly genuine.

War stories, however, have a habit of growing darker. For the same 58-year old senior Syrian doctor then adds something profoundly uncomfortable: the patients, he says, were overcome not by gas but by oxygen starvation in the rubbish-filled tunnels and basements in which they lived, on a night of wind and heavy shelling that stirred up a dust storm.

Contrary to the narrative faithfully reported by western mass media, the bombshell report from Fisk—who became famous for being among the few reporters in history to conduct face-to-face interviews with Osama bin Laden, which he did on three occasions between 1993 and 1997—found, after interviewing numerous local Douma residents, there was no evidence to substantiate the reported chemical attack as claimed by Saudi-sponsored jihadist group Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam).

Fisk reports that the Syrian doctor, Dr Assim Rahaibani, who works at the hospital told him:

“I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened. There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at night–but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived. People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. Then someone at the door, a ‘White Helmet,’ shouted ‘Gas!’ and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia–not gas poisoning.”

Witnesses told Fisk that the infamous White Helmets, officially known as Syria Civil Defence, actually operate as a civil defense for the “terrorist” rebel forces. The White Helmets are largely funded by the U.S. and UK governments and were founded in 2013 by James Le Mesurier, a former British military intelligence officer, and private security specialist.

Providing perhaps additional evidence that the White Helmets operate not a civil defense, but a defense on behalf of the Islamist terrorists, Fisk reports:

The White Helmets–the medical first responders already legendary in the West but with some interesting corners to their own story–played a familiar role during the battles. They are partly funded by the Foreign Office and most of the local offices were staffed by Douma men. I found their wrecked offices not far from Dr Rahaibani’s clinic. A gas mask had been left outside a food container with one eye-piece pierced and a pile of dirty military camouflage uniforms lay inside one room. Planted, I asked myself? I doubt it. The place was heaped with capsules, broken medical equipment and files, bedding and mattresses.

Of course we must hear their side of the story, but it will not happen here: a woman told us that every member of the White Helmets in Douma abandoned their main headquarters and chose to take the government-organised and Russian-protected buses to the rebel province of Idlib with the armed groups when the final truce was agreed.

See how that works—the terrorists leave the city and White Helmets are gone. So, when people perpetuate the lie that the White Helmets are Syrian civil defense, be sure to correct them and note that they are the civil defense for the Islamist jihadi forces that are attempting to overthrow the government and not the Syrian people.

In regards to purported “moderate rebels” you hear about in the western press, the Syrians that Fisk interviewed had a vastly different outlook on who they were:

Before we go any further, readers should be aware that this is not the only story in Douma. There are the many people I talked to amid the ruins of the town who said they had “never believed in” gas stories – which were usually put about, they claimed, by the armed Islamist groups. These particular jihadis survived under a blizzard of shellfire by living in other’s people’s homes and in vast, wide tunnels with underground roads carved through the living rock by prisoners with pick-axes on three levels beneath the town. I walked through three of them yesterday, vast corridors of living rock which still contained Russian–yes, Russian–rockets and burned-out cars.

So the story of Douma is thus not just a story of gas–or no gas, as the case may be. It’s about thousands of people who did not opt for evacuation from Douma on buses that left last week, alongside the gunmen with whom they had to live like troglodytes for months in order to survive. I walked across this town quite freely yesterday without soldier, policeman or minder to haunt my footsteps, just two Syrian friends, a camera and a notebook. I sometimes had to clamber across 20-foot-high ramparts, up and down almost sheer walls of earth. Happy to see foreigners among them, happier still that the siege is finally over, they are mostly smiling; those whose faces you can see, of course, because a surprising number of Douma’s women wear full-length black hijab.

With a policy platform of destroying ISIS and fighting terrorism, the Trump Administration has seemingly chosen the all too familiar path of the U.S. covertly aligning itself with insurgent groups meant to operate as a proxy army to foment regime change that Washington deems of significant geostrategic importance.

While most Americans understand that Saudi Arabia is the most prolific state sponsor of terrorism in the world, the close relationship being forged between Trump and Mohammed Bin Salman leads one to believe that the perceived financial incentives (Aramaco IPO) of strategic partnering with the Kingdom seems to outweigh Trump’s voiced concerns over Saudi involvement in 9/11 and their funding of global terrorism.

What is irrefutable is that the Saudis have chosen to supply massive amounts of arms and funding to numerous Islamist jihadi groups active in trying to overthrow the Assad government, as evidenced by internal diplomatic cable, released by WikiLeaks in 2015, revealing the Saudi government was set on Assad’s violent ouster “by all means available.”

Noting the rigorous independence of his reporting, Fisk wrote that he came to Douma as part of a convoy of journalists escorted by the Syrian government, but according to Fisk, “once a boring general had announced outside a wrecked council house ‘I have no information’… I just walked away.”

While Fisk is sure to come under attack by critics, the New York Times has previously referred to him as “probably the most famous foreign correspondent in Britain” while The Guardian has called him “one of the most famous journalists in the world.”

Additionally, a report from Douma, Syria, by One America’s Pearson Sharp, confirmed Fisk’s reporting, noting that residents there deny an attack happened and instead claim it was staged by rebel forces in an effort to precipitate a response from western forces.

Sharp said that he interviewed between 30 to 40 residents of Douma, and in a series of social media posts, he wrote:

I just spoke with a Syrian woman who lives in Douma. I asked her about the attack there, and she laughed, and said no! There was no chemical attack or any other kind of attack. 

She told me the area in question was in her neighborhood, and that if an attack had happened, she and her family would be dead. 

I asked her what did happen, and she said the rebel terrorists lied, created the event from nothing, and used it as a cover to convince America and Europe to attack Assad’s forces. 

Not making this up. Just reporting what people who actually live here are telling me.

Sharp emphasized that his reporting was not scripted or staged, but with actual local residents of Douma. He said that not one person told him that no chemical attack had taken place, but residents confirmed that they believe the alleged attack was staged by “terrorists rebels” so they could escape the oncoming Syrian army.

US, UK & France bombs Syria after alleged chemical attack: 71 Out of 103 Missiles Repelled



 


Perhaps the most surprising news surrounding the US, British and French strike on Syria Saturday morning was the report that the country’s Air Defense Force managed to shoot down just shy of 70% of the Western cruise missiles launched. Sputnik looks at how the Syrians managed to do it.

The Western attack, executed this morning at 4:00 am Syrian time on April 14, saw US Navy warships in the Red Sea and Air Force B-1B bombers and F-15 and F-16 aircraft rain dozens of ship and air-launched cruise missiles down on the Syrian capital of Damascus, an airbase outside the city, a so-called chemical weapons storage facility near Homs, and an equipment storage facility and command post, also near Homs. B1-Bs are typically armed with JASSM cruise missiles, which have a 450 kg warhead and a range of 370 km. US Navy warships launched Tomahawks, which have 450 kg warheads and an operational range of between 1,300 and 2,500 km.

The British Royal Air Force’s continent for the assault consisted of four Tornado GR4 ground attack aircraft armed with the Storm Shadow long-range air-to-surface missile, which the UK’s Defense Ministry said targeted ‘chemical weapons sites’ in Homs. These weapons have a range of 400 km.

Finally, France sent its Aquitaine frigate, armed with SCALP naval land attack cruise missiles (SCALP the French military’s name for the Storm Shadow), as well as several Dassault Rafale fighters, also typically armed with SCALP or Apache cruise missiles.

According to the Russian defense ministry, the B-1Bs also fired GBU-38 guided air bombs.

Undoubtedly weary of the prospect of having their aircraft shot down after Israel lost one of its F-16s over Syria in February, the Western powers presumably launched their weapons from well outside the range of Syrian air defenses, with all the targets located just 70-90 km of the Mediterranean Sea, and having to fly through Lebanon first.

Attack Blunted

However, notwithstanding the powerful collection of weaponry arrayed against them, the Syrian Army seems to have managed, for the most part, to blunt the attack.

Several hours after the strikes, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that the majority of the missiles launched were intercepted by Syria’s Air Defense Force, who shot down some 71 of the 103 cruise missiles detected. This included the interception of all 12 missiles launched at the Al-Dumyar airbase northeast of Damascus. Syrian media, for its part, reported that the military had destroyed 20 missiles over Damascus alone.

Furthermore, although the Syrian military does have some modern air defenses, including the Pantsir-S1 combined short-to-medium range surface to air missile (SAM) and anti-aircraft artillery system, the cruise missile attack was repelled mostly by upgrades of 30+ year old equipment, including variants of the Buk self-propelled missile system, the S-125 air defense system, and the S-200, an aging but tried and tested SAM introduced into the Soviet military in the late 1960s.

Balance of Forces

In late 2016, Russian defense analysts created a detailed outline of the state of Syria’s military. Their research concluded that Syria’s air defenses remained formidable, even following half a decade of war against terrorism.

According to the estimates, the Air Defense Force’s inventory includes 36 Pantsir-S1s, delivered by Russia between 2008 and 2013, 3-6 battalions of Buk-M1 and Buk-M2 medium-range SAM systems (Moscow delivered eight Buk-M2s between 2010 and 2013), five regiments (i.e. 25 batteries) of Kvadrat tracked medium-range surface-to-air missile systems (Kvadrat being the export version of the Kub air defense system), and 8 regiments of the S-200VE long-range missile system.

Syria has up to 53 regiments of the Dvina and Volga variant of the S-75, the ancient Soviet high-altitude air defense system used to shoot down US U-2s over the USSR and Cuba in the early 1960s. The country also has some 4,000 anti-aircraft guns of various calibers, although these are slowly being retired.

The Ground forces are also equipped with the OSA, Strela-1, and Strela-10 mobile, low-altitude short-range SAM systems (the Syrians have 61, 100 and 60 of each, respectively).

Syria’s radar network consists of P-40 3-D UHF early warning/target acquisition radar, P-12 3D VHF early warning ground control radar, P-15 2D UHF surveillance/target acquisition radar, P-30, P-35 an P-80 2D E band/F band early warning ground control radar, and PRV-13 and PRV-16 altimeter radar.

With the exception of the PRV-16 and the P-80, which were introduced into the Soviet military in the early 1970s, the rest of these systems were fielded starting in the late 1950s and mid-1960s, and have mostly been retired in Russia. Russia and Belarus have provided Syria with parts and technical support for these systems.

[Unconfirmed map of Syrian air defense coverage area. The greatest density is southwest of Damascus, where over 35 systems are said to be in operation.]

Stronger Than Expected

The formation of Syria’s more or less modern air defenses has its roots the early 1980s, and stems from the Air Defense Force’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Israeli air power during the 1982 Lebanon War at Bekka Valley. A year later, in 1983, the Soviet Union transferred its S-200VE long-range air defense system, along with the technical personnel to man them and train their Syrian counterparts. The S-200’s deployment was unusual, with Syria getting the systems before even the USSR’s Warsaw Pact allies did.

Since that time, thanks in part to having to contend with the technologically superior Israeli Air Defense Force on its border, Syria has continued to upgrade its air defense network. In fact, despite its age compared to Western powers, or say Russia, the country’s air defenses are considerably more modern than those of Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya before those countries were subjected to US and NATO bombings in 1999, 2003 and 2011.

The Air Defense Force is estimated to have between 20,000 and 36,000 personnel. Syria’s terrain, including numerous mountain ranges, which complicate attackers’ options, has resulted in an operational doctrine aimed at preserving air defense capabilities even in the event of massed enemy strikes, similarly to the Yugoslav Air Defense Force’s strategy during the war against NATO.

According to Russian military observers, Syria’s most formidable air defense systems are its Pantsirs and BuK-M1-2 and Buk M-2Es, which can shoot down F-15s from 45 km away and simultaneously track and destroy up to two dozen enemy targets. Furthermore, the S-125 Pechora remains a problem for NATO, despite its age. In March 2015, Syria shot down a US Predator drone in Latakia using the system. Finally, of course, there are those S-200s, which have an operational range of 300 km. It was one of these that shot down the intruder Israeli F-16 in February 2018.

Future Proofing

It’s unclear at this point whether the US and its allies will limit their strikes to Saturday’s attack, or launch further attacks in the future. In any case, the attack has already prompted Moscow into considering providing Damascus with its S-300 long-range SAM system. “Taking into account what happened, we consider it possible to return to this issue,” the Russian General Staff said in a statement.

In any case, Russia has already provided Syria with substantial assistance in restoring its air defense capabilities, particularly over the past year and a half. The end result of this assistance was seen shortly after 4 am on Saturday morning.

US Intervention in Syria Will Kill Far More Children than Assad’s Alleged Chemical Attack

militarymilitary

This week, it seems that the U.S. military may be getting the green light to escalate their war in Syria, after an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, which was consequently blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Most Americans don’t realize it, but the U.S. military has already been at war in Syria for years, with indiscriminate drone strikes that many times kill innocent civilians, with thousands of troops also on the ground. This is a war that has been waged without the knowledge of most Americans and without a declaration of war from Congress.

The coverage that this war has received in the mainstream press—from both liberal and conservative sources—has suggested that the US military is just there trying to help. However, classified State Department documents leaked in 2015 showed that regime change in Syria has been a major goal of the US establishment since well before the Arab Spring when the protests and rebellions in the region began.

Sure enough, as the years have passed and the cracks in Syria’s political system have deepened, the U.S. military and NATO have taken every opportunity to further their goal of regime change—most of the time, at the expense of the Syrian people. From arming and funding the rebels who would eventually become ISIS, to drone bombing schools and hospitals, the U.S. military has done nothing but add to the death and destruction that people in this part of the world are experiencing.

Considering the pain and bloodshed that the US military and their allies have unleashed upon Syria, it should be easy for anyone with this information to see that the renewed threats on Assad have everything to do with opportunism, and nothing to do with helping Syrians or “punishing the bad guys.”

Sadly, this is nothing new. The U.S. government has a long history of senselessly killing millions of people in wars of conquest that were sold as “humanitarian interventions.” Most recently, the war of regime change in Libya has left the country in ruins, torn by civil war and ravaged by slave traders, where there was once a thriving civilization.

Let’s also not forget about Afganistan or Iraq, where regime change was achieved, but over a decade later these places are still riddled with terrorism, occupied by foreign troops and experiencing a quality of life much lower than they had prior to US intervention.

It is now well established that the war in Iraq was built on a total lie, and that Saddam Hussein never actually had the weapons of mass destruction that were used as a pretense for U.S. invasion. It is quite possible that these stories of Assad using chemical weapons on Syrian people could be lies as well. Former Congressman Ron Paul seems to think that it could be a false flag attack, designed to justify an invasion.

Regardless of what actually happened in these chemical attacks, the U.S. government has no business getting involved because their track record has proven to be horrible in these types of situations, regardless of their stated motives.

In the string of military conflicts that the United States and NATO have been involved in since World War II, they have always attempted to maintain the high road by claiming that they were responding to some kind of threat, and apparently helping the people that they were bombing.

This approach is largely accepted by the general public who is either too afraid or unable to suspect malicious intentions on the part of their masters. In helping themselves to rationalize the nonsensical things that are happening in their name, many people are firm believers in the idea that their government is doing good and “policing the world.

However, military goals and ambitions have nothing to do with “policing the world.

Just as ancient Rome’s government could not care less about “spreading civilization” in their conquests, today’s Western governments are not interested in “spreading democracy” or “policing the world,” but rather, their goal is to rule the world.

If we were being honest with ourselves, we would say that they are trying to take over the world’s governments and plunder their natural resources, because that is what we can see happening around us. War is, and always has been, about conquest for plunder, power, and strategic influence, and the many wars that we see taking place around the world today are no different.

This fact may not be recognized by the national mainstream media, but people around the world see through the cover stories that have been used to sell these wars. According to a 2014 Gallup International survey, people across the world believe that the U.S. government is the greatest threat to world peace. The poll was taken by 66,000 people in 65 different countries, and just under 25 percent said that the U.S. was the biggest threat, with Pakistan coming in second place with just 8 percent. This makes sense, considering the fact that the U.S. has been a country for 242 years and has been at war for 221 of those years.

Research from the European Security Strategy Council found that since 1990, almost 4 million people have died in wars, 90 percent of them civilians, while UNICEF has reported that civilian fatalities have been even higher in recent years.

In 2016, Amnesty International reported that 300 innocent civilians in Syria died as a result of just 11 different US-led airstrikes that they investigated.

Given that the U.S. government has such a reputation for mass murder and human rights violations, we should always be extremely suspicious whenever anyone in power claims to be doing something noble, especially when military force is involved.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

12 American Astronauts Visit Planet Serpo & Some Of ‘Theirs’ Came Here: The Alleged ‘Project Serpo’



Next Story

Project Serpo is rumoured to be a top secret Special Access Program (SAP) between the United States government and an alien civilization who referred to their planet as Serpo, located in the Zeta Reticuli star system. Details of this supposed program have appeared all over the internet, and stem from unverifiable sources that one would never use to bring credibility to the topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials.

We already have an enormous amount of verified data and verified whistleblowers to pull from, but again, it’s also fun to speculate every once in a while, and why do we always have to lend our ear to a “verifiable source.” Obviously, it’s understandable if you’re trying to reach a wider audience, but we could be potentially missing out on some interesting revelations. It’s always a worthwhile effort to take a look and see what might be true, especially with regards to stories that, at the present moment, we can’t really say to be true or false.

As long as it’s clear we are speculating, I think it’s a healthy and creative thing to do, especially in light of all the evidence that does already exist suggesting human/alien interaction. We, for the most part, know we are not alone and know that some sort of interaction has taken place, at least that’s our stance here at Collective Evolution, and we know much of the world feels the same way.

It’s truly one of the most exciting times in human history to be alive and although there is, I believe, ample evidence to suggest that humanity has gone through phases of extraterrestrial contact before, it’s looking like it might be on the verge of happening again, at least that’s the gist we seem to be hearing from many different prominent people who would be in the position to ‘know.’

It’s the biggest story in human history, one that leaves no aspect of it untouched.

Since we dropped the Atom bomb, UFO sightings have been increasing every single year, it’s something that can’t really be hidden anymore as citizens all over the world have shot footage of crafts performing maneuvers that defy our known laws of physics and aerodynamics, including the government.

This was the sentiment of multiple insiders from within the U.S. Department of Defence, who recently released three videos of real UFOs shot by their military pilots. The director of the Pentagon’s ‘aerial threat’ program to investigate UFO’s, Louis Elizondo, along with one of the pilots, stated that they believe the objects they saw were indeed not from this world. Elizondo specifically stated that he believes there is ample evidence suggesting “that we are not alone, whatever that means.”

Keep in mind, there are thousands of these encounters described in the declassified literature.

Regardless of what you believe, the maneuvers these objects performed is unattainable by a man made air-craft, or perhaps not?

Here’s an interesting comment from the recently retired Director of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Skunkworks, Steve Justice:

“This is a concept for an international point-to-point transportation craft that will erase the current travel limits of distance and time. It mimics the capabilities observed in unidentified aerial phenomenon by employing a driver system that alters space-time metric. We have glimpses of how the physics of this works, but we need to harvest technologies from the Science Division to “realize” the capability.” 

In the comment, he is also verifying UFOs, and goes a step further with claim to know how the craft is operating.

Shortly after this, the Canadian government made a coin commemorating one of its most famous UFO encounters, and actually showed a highly radioactive piece of the craft on mainstream television, it was in a special radioactive shielding case.

So, as you can see, it’s evident something is going on here and it seems as though we are being acclimatized to the idea that we’re not alone, and that we have been, and are being visited.

As with most other major stories that come from mainstream media and ‘official government’ sources, it’s hard to completely trust without being a little cautious, given the fact that the citizenry has been lied to on numerous occasions, with so many different topics, in order to serve elitist agendas.

The UFO topic, perhaps, could be no different, and I elaborate further on that possibility in the article linked below:

Wikileaks Documents Suggest That Wernher Von Braun Tried To Warn Us About A Fake Alien Invasion

Disclosure Is Happening

This brings me to the main point of the article, which is, the highest ranking people from within military agencies, intelligence agencies, and more, now number close to one thousand, and many of them are stating from their experience that they know for a fact that some of these UFOs, are actually extraterrestrial space craft, and the government, or perhaps Deep State, has known about it for a long time.

Even a course at the Turkish university called “Ufology & Exopolitics,” is being put into place. The purpose of the class is to prepare students for the possibility of extraterrestrial contact.

A class tutor, Erhan Kolbasi, told the Dogan News Agency, “We believe representatives from the world and extraterrestrial civilizations will soon be making official contact with each other. We thinking they will be in an open and mass contact… It will be the biggest change seen in the history of the world.”

The course will concentrate on the history of the UFO/extraterrestrial contact, as well as the implications of extraterrestrial contact and more. You can read more about that story here.

This Is Why Speculation About SERPO Is OK

Speculation is OK, it’s fine to dive into stories that aren’t entirely verifiable, especially when you are speaking about a verifiable phenomenon. Having been a researcher in the field for more than a decade, I can tell you that the deeper you dive in, the more you realize what you don’t know, and it just gets more confusing the more you lend your ear to these kinds of stories because you know that it’s actually a legitimate possibility, and in some cases, a high probability. Plus it helps expand our consciousness and what’s possible.

But speculation and imagination is all we have. Based on what we know today, it’s not hard to speculate at what exactly has gone on with regards to the UFO/extraterrestrial cover-up. For decades there’s been, as former head of the CIA Roscoe Hilenkoetter put it in 1960, “Official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.”

Have we been manipulated to ridicule and not-believe over the decades?

Despite the fact that this article focuses on Serpo, many of the stories of supposed contact do hold a lot of legitimacy behind them, and many of the stories seem to corroborate. The Serpo story is just different, perhaps that’s why it seems so unique.

If Serpo was real, it was defiantly a Special Access Programs (SAP). From these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”

The previously classified Pentagon UFO program mentioned above, was a SAP, but based on the amount of secrecy that exists within the military industrial complex, it’s safe to say we really have no idea what type of programs has existed or exist today.

“The nations of the world are currently working together in the investigation of the UFO phenomenon. There is an international exchange of data. Maybe when this group of nations acquires more precise and definite information, it will be possible to release the news to the world.”
– General Carlos Castro Cavero, Spanish Air Force General (a statement given to the world in the 1970s)

Questions about extraterrestrial life would be vast. Where do they come from? How do they operate? How do they breath? What type of technology is used for the craft? What do they know about the nature of reality that we don’t? What do they eat? How do they communicate? Why are they here? What’s it like on their planet?

As you can imagine there are countless amounts of questions to be asked, and other actions our world of secrecy would want to take to find out more, which is why Project Serpo is so intriguing.

The story originates from the famous Roswell Crash of 1947. Apparently, there have been several of these crashes, with, as Apollo 14 astronaut Dr, Edgar Mitchell once said, “bodies recovered.”

Apparently, there were multiple extraterrestrials who survived these crashes, and one from the Roswell incident was friendly, calm, and attempted to communicate.

Labelled as “EBE1”, the being picked up the english language quite quick, and informed those who were holding him captive that he was from a planet called Serpo, approximately 40 light years away in the Zeta Reticuli Galaxy.

Apparently, the extraterrestrial worked with his damaged ship to try and communicate with his planet, but failed. He eventually passed away, but in the early 1950’s the US military supposedly came into contact with this alien race, called the Ebens, who lived on Serpo. As communications transpired over the next decade, an exchange program was set up between the two planets, and 10 American men, along with two American women, were selected for the experiment.

The Exchange

According Len Kasten who spoke to Gaia:

“The exchange was scheduled to occur at Holloman Air Force Base on April 24, 1964, with Approval From President John F. Kennedy. Two Eben spaceships landed as planned. A contingent of American government personnel greeted them. The 12 American astronauts prepared to embark on their adventure, but for some reason, the exchange got postponed. The Ebens retrieved the remains of their dead comrades and left. The Ebens returned in July 1965 and picked up their passengers.”

The story is somewhat depicted towards the end of Steven Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Apparently, they completed the 40 light year trip in approximately 10 months.

According to the sources available, when the astronauts landed there were a number of Ebens who were fluent in English. The planet has two suns, and is extremely bright and hot, our astronauts had trouble coping with the climate the whole time they were there.

The astronauts stayed on the planet for approximately 13 years, learning the Eben’s religious beliefs, examining their technologies, customs, what they ate, and overall way of life. The planet was said to have just over half a million citizens.

Apparently, two of our own astronauts died during the expedition due to radiation exposure and a lack of ability to adjust to the climate.

The Voyage Home

Len Kasten describes the trip home:

“Two Americans liked life on Serpo so much, they decided to stay there. The remaining astronauts Returned Home in 1978 and the government quarantined them for an entire year. During that time, they had many debriefings, which resulted in a 3,000 page report. They were then allowed to go back to their normal lives. Little is known about their lives since, except the last surviving one died in 2002. There has been no communication with Ebens on Serpo since 1985, so it is not known what happened to the Americans who chose to stay on the planet.”

Fascinating to contemplate, to say the least, isn’t it? Again, I do not feel it’s wrong to speculate, as long as you make it clear that you are speculating. Sometimes, sharing information like this may be hurtful to the truth movement behind this phenomenon.

Len Kasten, a UFO researcher, freelance writer, and a former member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena and the Mutual UFO Network, wrote a book documenting the experience titled, Secret Journey To Planet Serpo: A True Story of Interplanetary Travel.” (joe affiliate link can go here)

Here’s a short interview with him.

A Truly Fascinating Story

This is a story that fascinates even the most rigid of UFO researchers, but again, nothing can really be verified about it. We can’t say for certain that it actually happened.

Below is an interview with Bill Ryan, formerly of the activist group Project Camleot. He currently runs a forum, called Project Avalon where, apparently a lot of the official SERPO documents were leaked.

He has a good grasp on this story, despite the fact that this clip is more than a decade old.
