China probe flies around moon and back in first such mission since 1970s

China has completed its first return mission to the moon with the successful re-entry and landing on Earth of an unmanned probe, state media reported.

The probe, Chang’e 5-T1, landed safely in northern China’s Inner Mongolia region, state news agency Xinhua said, citing the Beijing Aerospace Control Centre.

Xinhua said the probe, dubbed “Xiaofei” (little flyer) on social media, took “some incredible pictures” of the Earth and the moon. It is the first trip around the moon and back since US and Russian flights of the 1970s, 40 years ago.

Prior to re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere the unnamed probe had been travelling at 11.2 kilometres per second (25,000 miles per hour), a speed that can generate temperatures of more than 1,500C (2,700F), the news agency reported.

To slow it down scientists let the craft “bounce” off Earth’s atmosphere before re-entering again and landing.

The probe’s mission was to travel to the moon, fly around it and head back to Earth, said the the state science and technology agency, Sastind. The module went 413,000km from Earth at its furthest point.
The mission was launched to test technology to be used in the Chang’e-5, China’s fourth lunar probe, which aims to gather and return samples from the surface in 2017.

The military-run space project has plans for a permanent orbiting station by 2020 and eventually to send a human to the moon.

China currently has a robotic rover, Yutu (Jade Rabbit), on the moon. It landed on 14 December 2013 and completed parts of its mission before grinding to a halt on 25 January 2014 due to equipment failure.

China goes to the moon and back for the first time

China plans to land on the moon by 2017

BEIJING, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- China has successfully completed it's first mission to the moon and back and plans to land on the moon by 2017.

An unmanned spacecraft flew around the moon and then returned by landing in the grasslands of Mongolia, according to state news agency Xinhua. The unmanned craft traveled at roughly 25,000 miles per hour on its return trip before it entered Earth's atmosphere and reached temperatures of almost 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

China is now the third country to go to the moon and back, after Russia and the United States.

China's State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) claims their Chang'e-5 unmanned probe will land on the moon in 2017 to collect samples from the surface.

China plans to eventually land a man on the moon, something that hasn't been done in about 42 years. The country plans to build its own space station by 2020.

China goes around the Moon

On 24 October, China launched Chang'E-5-T1. The unmanned spacecraft is set to fly around the Moon then release a capsule that will return to Earth at the end of the month in order to test this phase for a future mission to return samples.

 The Chinese lunar programme continues to progress in stages. After sending 2 spacecraft around the Moon, on 14 December 2013, the Chinese space agency, CNSA (China National Space Administration) landed its Chang'E-3 lander in the Mare Imbrium on our natural satellite. The spacecraft was carrying the Yutu rover that surveyed the lunar surface until it was immobilised due to a malfunction in January 2014.

The next exploration mission planned in the programme is Chang'E-4 which must also complete an automatic landing, expected in 2015. Despite its name, ChangíE-5-T1 is still part of the chronology of the Chinese programme, this flight is in fact a partial technological test for the Chang'E-5 mission (without the T1) which in 2017 should take samples from the Moon's surface and bring them back to Earth. Chang'E-5-T1 aims to test the capsule that will bring the samples back to our planet. A CZ-3C rocket sent the spacecraft to the Moon, taking-off from the Xichang Space Centre in the early hours of 24 October (local time). 

Chang'E-5-T1 consists of a carrier spacecraft fitted with solar panels and derived from the DFH-3 platform shared by several Chinese satellites and which was also used for the Chang’E-1 and 2 missions. However, this time, there was also a return capsule. Chang’E-5-T1 will not land on the Moon or collect any samples. The spacecraft will go around our natural satellite by 27/28 October then, when it is close to Earth, it will release the capsule so that it re-enters our atmosphere and lands underneath parachutes on the ground. This landing should take place on 31 October or 1 November.

Thus the CNSA is testing the re-entry phase in real conditions, i.e. at a speed similar to that of a return from the Moon, which is faster than from Earth's orbit.

The third stage of the rocket which launched Chang'E-5-T1 is carrying a small European experiment called 4M. Developed by the company Lux Space, this is a radio transmitter which will emit a signal for radio amateurs. Given that the third stage is also heading to the Moon, this is an opportunity for the radio amateur community to follow a signal intended for them as the transmitter travels to our natural satellite. The name 4M stands for Manfred Memorial Moon Mission in honour of Manfred Fuchs, founder of the OHB company (satellite manufacturer) who died early this year.

China's eight-day mission to fly around the moon and back to Earth blasts off

  • China sent a mission to the moon from the southwestern Xichang satellite launch centre this morning The spacecraft will fly around the moon on an eight-day mission It is intended to be a precursor to a mission to the lunar surface in 2017 This will return samples back to Earth - only the third nation to do so after the US and Russia China also has plans to land people on the moon, possibly beyond 2020 

China has launched an experimental spacecraft to fly around the moon and back to Earth.
The eight-day mission is seen as a test-run for the country's first unmanned return trip to the lunar surface, which will take place in 2017.

And if China successfully manages to bring samples back from the moon, they will be only the third nation to carry out such a mission after the US and Russia.
Scroll down for video

China sent a mission to the moon from the southwestern Xichang satellite launch centre this morning (shown). The spacecraft will fly around the moon on an eight-day mission. It is intended to be a precursor to a mission to the lunar surface in 2017

The spacecraft lifted off from the southwestern Xichang satellite launch centre early this morning.
It separated from its carrier rocket and entered Earth orbit shortly after, the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (Sastind) reported, according to the official Xinhua News Agency.

'The first stage of the first return journey test in China's moon probe programme has been successful,' Sastind said after the launch, from the Xichang space base in the southwestern province of Sichuan.

The module will be 257,000 miles (413,000 km) from Earth at its furthest point on the eight-day mission.

The official Xinhua news agency said it would re-enter the atmosphere at 11.2 kilometres per second (25,000 mph) before slowing down - a process that generates extremely high temperatures - and it will land in northern China's Inner Mongolia region. 

China's lunar exploration program, named Chang'e after a mythical goddess, has already launched a pair of orbiting lunar probes and last year landed a craft on the moon with a rover onboard.

China has also hinted at a possible crewed mission to the moon at a future date if officials decide to combine the human spaceflight and lunar exploration programs.

Xinhua said the latest mission is to 'obtain experimental data and validate re-entry technologies such as guidance, navigation and control, heat shield and trajectory design' for the future moonlander christened Chang'e 5.

It will return to Earth using a Soviet-designed method in which it will first bounce off Earth's atmosphere in order to slow it down to allow it to enter the atmosphere without burning up.

HOW IT WILL LAND ON EARTH
 

The module will be 257,000 miles (413,000 km) from Earth at its furthest point on the eight-day mission.

The official Xinhua news agency said it would re-enter the atmosphere at 11.2 kilometres per second (25,000 mph) before slowing down - a process that generates extremely high temperatures - and it will land in northern China's Inner Mongolia region.

It will return to Earth using a Soviet-designed method in which it will first bounce off Earth's atmosphere in order to slow it down to allow it to enter the atmosphere without burning up.

China's military-backed space program is a source of massive national pride, especially its series of successful manned missions that have placed up to three astronauts at a time in an experimental orbiting space station called Tiangong 1.

It sent its first astronaut into space in 2003, becoming the third nation after Russia and the US to achieve manned space travel independently.

China has powered ahead in a series of methodically timed steps, independent of the American programme, which is now in its sixth decade of putting people into space and has long-term plans to go to an asteroid and Mars.

Alongside the manned program, China is developing the Long March 5 heavy-lift rocket needed to launch a more permanent space station to be called Tiangong 2.

China's space programme has been picking up speed over the last decade. They have already sent a handful of astronauts into Earth orbit including Liu Yang, left, Jing Haipeng, right, and Liu Wang pictured here in June 2012 on their way to the launch pad

Last year China successfully landed and operated a rover on the moon called Jade Rabbit, shown. However, it ultimately succumbed to the bitterly cold lunar nights. China's next mission to the lunar surface in 2017 will lift return samples to Earth


British Captive John Cantlie Reports from Kobani in IS Video [ Pics / Videos ] - www.ofINTEREST.net


What does the Islamic State want?
Why aren't those of profit/gain and/or control willing to listen?
Who are the Islamic State? No really, who are they?
Please ask these questions and more, and don't STOP till you get to the real TRUTH!
Mikhael Love, IIO




The Islamic State (IS) released a video featuring British captive John Cantlie reporting from Kobani about the group’s control over the city despite Western media broadcasting the contrary.

The 5 minute, 32 second video, entitled, “Inside 'Ayn al-Islam,” was produced by the IS’ al-I’tisaam Media Foundation, and was distributed on Twitter on October 27, 2014. Cantlie, dressed in a black outfit, stands atop a building in Kobani and speaks on what he sees below him and in the distance, and claims that the IS has essentially secured victory in the city. 

He stated:

“Kobani is now being reinforced by Iraqi Kurds who are coming in through Turkey, while the mujahideen are being resupplied by the hopeless United States Air Forces, who parachuted two crates of weapons and ammunition straight into the outstretched arms of the mujahideen. Now the battle for Kobani is coming to an end. The mujahideen are just mopping up now, street to street, and building to building. You can occasionally hear erratic gunfire in the background as a result of those operations. But contrary to what the Western media would have you believe, it is not an all-out battle here now. It is nearly over. As you can hear, it is very quiet, just the occasional gunfire.

“Two-hundred thousand inhabitants of the city have been displaced because of the fighting that came here. You can see the refugee camps over my right shoulder over there in Turkey, where the inhabitants now are. But contrary to media reports, the fighting in Kobani is nearly over
“Urban warfare is as about as nasty and tough as it gets, and it’s something of a specialty of the mujahideen.”

[John Cantlie]

Hello, I'm John Cantlie, and today we're in the city of Kobani on the Syrian-Turkish border. That is in fact Turkey right behind me, and we are here in the heart of the so-called PKK safe zone, which is now controlled entirely by the Islamic State. For a month now, the soldiers of the Islamic State have been besieging this key Kurdish city and, despite continual American airstrikes, which have so far cost nearly half a billion dollars in total, the mujahideen have pushed deep in the heart of the city. They now control the eastern and southern sectors.

Now, the Western media, and I can't see any of their journalists here in the city of Kobani, have been saying recently that the Islamic State are on the retreat. In the last 48 hours, hundreds of Islamic State militants have been reportedly killed in airstrikes, said the IB Times, on the 16th of October. We now we've killed several hundred of them, said John Kirby, the Pentagon official. The Islamic State is retreating from the Syrian city of Kobani, said the BBC on October the 17th, while Patrick Coburn said in The Independent that despite suffering serious losses, the Islamic State was continuing its assault on the city.

Now this is all quite a turn-around from earlier in the month, when U.S. officials were saying, and I quote: "The strategically unimportant city of Kobani was going to fall into mujahideen hands in just a matter of time. It's going to be difficult with just airpower to prevent the Islamic State from taking the town, said U.S. National Security Advisor Tony Blinken on the 10th of October.

Now, good ole John Kerry doesn't seem to think the mujahideen are retreating. He called Kobani a "horrible example of the unwillingness of people to help those who are fighting the Islamic State". Now that's a dig at Kurd-hating Turkish President Erdogan.

But the point is, from where I'm standing right now, I can see large swathes of the city, and I can even see the Turkish flag behind me, and all I've seen here in the city of Kobani is mujahideen. There are no YPG, PKK, or Peshmerga in sight. Just a large number of Islamic State mujahideen, and they are definitely not on the run. Without any safe access, there are no journalists here in the city. So the media are getting their information from Kurdish commanders and White House press secretaries, neither of whom have the slightest intention of telling the truth of what is happening here on the ground. Now, airstrikes did prevent some groups of mujahideen from using their tanks and heavy armor as they would have liked, so they are entering the city and using light weapons instead, going house to house.

Now America is very keen for Kobani to become a symbol - a symbol of victory of the coalition that is working together to defeat the Islamic State. But they now and the mujahideen also know that even with all their airpower and all their proxy troops on the ground, even this is not enough to defeat the Islamic State here in Kobani and elsewhere.

Kobani is now being reinforced by Iraqi Kurds who are coming in through Turkey, while the mujahideen are being resupplied by the hopeless United States Air Forces, who parachuted two crates of weapons and ammunition straight into the outstretched arms of the mujahideen. Now the battle for Kobani is coming to an end. The mujahideen are just mopping up now, street to street, and building to building. You can occasionally hear erratic gunfire in the background as a result of those operations. But contrary to what the Western media would have you believe, it is not an all-out battle here now. It is nearly over. As you can hear, it is very quiet, just the occasional gunfire.

Two-hundred thousand inhabitants of the city have been displaced because of the fighting that came here. You can see the refugee camps over my right shoulder over there in Turkey, where the inhabitants now are. But contrary to media reports, the fighting in Kobani is nearly over
Urban warfare is as about as nasty and tough as it gets, and it’s something of a specialty of the mujahideen.

From on or about 25 October, 2014
John Cantlie speaks for around six minutes in the new video


In the fifth episode of the Islamic State’s (IS) video series “Lend Me Your Ears,” British captive John Cantlie discussed his experience with fellow prisoners from America and Europe, including fighters waterboarding them, and the “uncomfortable truth” about the U.S. and Britain not negotiating for their release.

The 6 minute, 30 second video was produced by the IS’ al-Furqan Media Foundation, and was distributed on Twitter on October 25, 2014. Cantlie said that the IS began a “long-term” operation to capture Westerners entering Syria in 2013 and then tried negotiating with their home countries for their release. Here, he pointed out that nationals from Denmark, Germany, and Spain were released through negotiations, but the Americans and Britons were “stonewalled” by their respective governments.

Cantlie read selections from alleged emails from prisoners’ families and the IS where the families complained about the U.S. government not helping. Cantlie remarked: “Now the recurring elements in these emails is that the U.S. government was simply doing absolutely nothing to help the families involved in this negotiation. The mujahideen told us our governments didn't care about us and we didn't believe them. They told us we were worthless and we didn't believe them. We were told we'd start to die and we didn't believe that either. The human mind has an incredibly tough capacity to self-defense in difficult situations. But it was all true. Our governments had chose not to negotiate with the Islamic State through our families and friends. And while everyone else fulfilled the conditions for release, for us, there was no deal.”

Following is a transcript of the video:
Lend Me Your Ears
Messages from the British Detainee John Cantlie
Episode 5

Hello, I'm John Cantlie, the British citizen abandoned by my own government, and a prisoner of the Islamic State for nearly two years.


In this program I'm going to reveal to you some uncomfortable truths that have so far resulted in the executions of my former cellmates. Only the American and British prisoners were left behind after months of negotiations that saw 16 other citizens from six European countries go home. How was this allowed to happen?


We have to go back to 2013 when the Islamic State launched a long-term operation to capture Westerns entering Syria, and they began the next phase of the operation: negotiating for our release with our governments through families and friends. Now, unless we tried something stupid like escaping or doing something we shouldn't, we were treated well by the Islamic State. Some of us who tried to escape were waterboarded by our captors, as Muslim prisoners are waterboarded by their American captors.


Our strange little community of prisoners had its share of problems, but apart from the odd fight, we lived together in relative harmony through uncertain times. We read books, played recreational games, and gave lectures on our specialist subjects. It wasn't a bad life.


The first to leave was my friend, Spanish journalist Marcus Marjuneris in February 2014. The mujahideen then made their first strong move by shooting one of our number, a Russian with no clean origin or story behind him. The message was clear: don't mess around when it comes to negotiations. The Europeans fell into line. Two more Spanish journalists left, then four French at the end of April, their representatives having fulfilled the conditions for their release.


But it was clear something was different for the British and Americans. While there was dialogue for everyone else, the British and Americans were stonewalled. It was completely silent. Nothing. Now we knew our countries claim to be non-negotiating when it came to situations like this, but often knew examples when they had negotiated either under the table or through a third party. Due to the size and complexity of this situation, and the number of other countries involved, we believed our governments would get us out in the end. So we waited patiently while everyone else went home to their loved ones.


Finally, we had movement in May. We made a video, wrote letters, and made a voice-recording. For us, the Islamic State were asking for the release of Muslim prisoners and their transfer to the Caliphate. It sounded very complicated, but we were the biggest group from the biggest countries. There had to be a negotiation going on. But by the time the last two Europeans left, my friends Dan from Denmark - another non-negotiating country - and Tony from Germany, it was clear to us we were in very big trouble.


Now I have here a selection of emails between the Islamic State and families back home. I don't have much on the British, so I assume there was even less discussion going on for them, so this is really all about the Americans and you'll see that really the government was doing nothing, absolutely nothing, to help families involved. I have a message here from one of the American prisoners on the 11th of June 2014:


"I would secure your sister Dr. Aafia Siddique's release if I could. It sounds like you care about her freedom. You have surely seen the news. Our government is a mess. They will not help."


There's another email here from the family of one of the American prisoners on the 17th of July 2014:


"Our government is not being helpful. We have begged them so many times already. Everyone has buried their heads in the sand. We feel we are caught in the middle between you and the U.S. government, and we are being punished. We have reached out to our government, but they have been non-responsive for some time now."


The person then goes on to say:


"We don't expect that we will get any help from our government at all, and we feel foolish for believing them."


There's a message from the family of one of the American prisoners on the 24th of July 2014:


"We are contacting people everyday. You've given us a huge mountain to climb, and we feel like a pawn in this political battle that we've been forced into. I'm taking everything you have said seriously, and I'm working as fast as I can. I need more time."


Now the recurring elements in these emails is that the U.S. government was simply doing absolutely nothing to help the families involved in this negotiation. The mujahideen told us our governments didn't care about us and we didn't believe them. They told us we were worthless and we didn't believe them. We were told we'd start to die and we didn't believe that either. The human mind has an incredibly tough capacity to self-defense in difficult situations. But it was all true. Our governments had chose not to negotiate with the Islamic State through our families and friends. And while everyone else fulfilled the conditions for release, for us, there was no deal.


Join me in the next program as we learn about a failed rescue that tried to get us out, and you'll hear about how one soldier was worth five prisoners and we were worth none.

Borneo's Mount Kinabalu, Flesh Eating, Giant Red Leech Swallows huge Blue Earthworm like Spaghetti [ VIDEO-Pics ] - www.ofINTEREST.net




For the first time, BBC filmmakers in the forests of Borneo's Mount Kinabalu have documented the so-repulsive-it's-captivating behavior of a large, red, worm-guzzling predator as part of their upcoming new series "Wonders of the Monsoon". While the predator remains unclassified by science, the animal is known to the area's tribespeople, fittingly, as the "Giant Red Leech."

A huge 1m leech has been filmed for the first time swallowing a giant earthworm in the forests of Borneo  Photo: BBC
The Giant Red Leech is one of the biggest in the world. The specimen captured on camera was around 30cm long but experts believe they could grow larger.
They have grown so big that they no longer simply suck blood but now actively hunt giant blue worms and suck them down like spaghetti. The worm it is eating is a whopping 78cm.
The new footage shows the leech detecting a worm's trail and following the scent like a sniffer dog.
When it encounters its prey it quickly latches on and moves its lips up and down the iridescent blue body.
"It was either searching for an end to grab, or was working out whether it was too big to eat" said documentary director Paul Williams.
"When it found an end it started to suck. It was incredible."
That this ambitious leech is roughly half the length of the worm it's eating only makes the footage more impressive. 

A big thanks to Paul Williams and the Giant Red Leech for this fascinating footage – and for ruining spaghetti for everyone, forever.

Wonders of the Monsoon will air on BBC 2 at 8pm on Sunday October 5th:

Series producer Paul Bradshaw said: “This is natural history set in the planet's most glorious and dramatic theatre - the lands of the monsoon. 

“It's an incredibly rich mixture of extraordinary creatures, great and small, with some of the planet’s most colourful and ancient cultures, all bound together through the story of this rampaging weather system.”

The ant pictured below comes from entomologist, blogger and insect photographer Alex Wild. The remarkable image of a trapjaw ant, torn asunder to reveal the wriggling, 8-inch parasitic worm living inside. (The ant, by comparison, measures about half an inch long.)

Infected Ant via Alex Wild

In the jungles of Belize last January, entomologist Alex Wild noticed something odd about the trap-jaw ants passing through his outdoor insect photography class: They all had shrunken heads and swollen abdomens. A day after making the observation, Wild and his students came upon an ant with a worm bursting out of its side. Parasites were at work. Nematode worms enter the ants as larvae and grow inside the ants' body cavity, siphoning off nutrients and distorting their hosts' natural anatomy. When the eight-inch-long nematodes are ready to mate a few weeks later, they push their way out of their half-inch-long hosts, killing them.

INFECTED

In the abdomen of a trap-jaw ant, a parasitic nematode lives off nutrients from the surrounding fluids and changes the morphology of its host.

HEALTHY

The jaws of a parasite-free worker can snap shut on prey in just 1/10,000 of a second—the fastest known mechanical action in nature.

Fun fact:
 when they're not bursting at the seams with squirming parasites, trapjaw ants are capable of clamping their mandibles shut somewhere in the range of 35 to 64 meters per second (~78–145 miles per hour). The average duration of a trap-jaw clamp is just 0.13 milliseconds, making it among the fastest predatory strikes in the animal kingdom.

Trap-jaw ant, Odontomachus brunneus


In 2006, a team led by UC Berkeley biologist Sheila Patek used high-speed videography to determine that a trap-jaw's mandibles can accelerate at 100,000 times the force of gravity, and exert a force powerful enough to send its body soaring through the air in a defensive maneuver known as an "escape jump" (seen above). Below is another example of a different evasive maneuver (called a "bounce defense jump") with a more horizontal trajectory, from the same study:

Police searching for missing UVA student, 18, release last known footage of girl as it's revealed she texted friends at 01:20 am to say she was lost on way to party near her own house 

  • Hannah Elizabeth Graham, 18, was reported missing on Sunday on campus
  • Texted friends at 01:20 am on Saturday to say she was lost on the way to meet them
  • But according to Charlottesville police, she failed to arrive for the party
  • Surveillance shows her running along a corridor the night she went missing 
  • Family and friends have not heard from the second year student since 
  • Her parents are from England but she lives in America on a Green Card
Police have released CCTV images of a University of Virginia student on the night she disappeared after failing to show up for a party after texting to say she was lost near her own home.

Authorities are desperately searching for Hannah Elizabeth Graham who was reported missing near the Charlottesville campus on Sunday.

The 18-year-old texted her friends at 1.20am on Saturday to say she was lost on the way to a party near to her home at the Camden Plaza Apartments but never arrived. 

The same friends told police she had been drinking beforehand and last night surveillance images were released by police showing her running inside her apartment block at 9.30pm on the night she went missing.

At the request of the family her address is not being made public.

Last known pictures: Police have released this CCTV footage of Hannah Elizabeth Graham, 18, on the night she disappeared after failing to show up for a party

Search: University of Virginia officials have launched a huge hunt for the missing second year student in nearby woodland. Her parents are from England and she lives in the US on a Green Card

Friends and family have not heard anything from the second year student, whose parents are from England, since and police have launched a desperate search for her in wooded areas. 

It shows what she was wearing on the night she disappeared. Police have said she was 'fairly well intoxicated', according to CBS6.

Her friend, Sophia Lamrissi-Garcia, who was partying with Hannah at one of her sorority events, told the station she had considered getting a cab home, but decided she would walk instead. 


Appeal: Friends and family of the student have asked anyone with any information to call UVA police


Hunt: Police in Charlottesville have announced they are seeking any information from the public as they search for Hannah Elizabeth Graham


Hannah's parents are originally from the north of England - and she has spent at least two years in the United States

Her neighbor, Sam Blum said that he is devastated and worried about her disappearance.
'I saw her on Thursday…she seemed really happy,' said Blum to WTVR. 'Downtown Charlottesville, I wouldn’t expect that.'

The search area for Hannah is being focused around 14th Street Northwest to Wertland Street, including the railroad tracks, near to the UVA campus.

That was where she sent her last text to friends explaining she was lost.

UVA President Teresa Sullivan released a statement Monday afternoon saying the university is both concerned and cooperating fully.

'The members of the University of Virginia community are united in our deep concern for a UVa student who is missing and has not been in touch with her family or friends since early Saturday morning,' said Sullivan according to the Roanoke Dispatch.

Students who didn't know Hannah said they were worried about what it means for campus security,
"I think it's real tragic when anything like this happens," said Brannon Johnson, 4th year at the university to the Roanoke Dispatch.

"It definitely questions everything in terms of safety and how everyone is going to react and move around grounds for sure."

"It kind of hit home that something like this can really happen," said Madison Baril, 1st year at the university.
'Before it was kind of more like stories and warnings, but now it's a real person that's gone.

"If you are with a group of girls, make sure you leave with a group of girls," said Baril. 'Find friends don't wander off with people you just met.'

The Islamic State group has released what it says is the beheading of British aid worker David Haines - an act described by the British prime minister as "pure evil". Remember though, both the United States of America top dog & the UK's prime minister both have their heads and keep out of harms way. Slaves pay the price for their mistakes and lies.


The video, released on the internet on late on Saturday, shows Haines, 44, being killed by in a desert location by a masked man. Haines, from Perth in Scotland, was abducted last year while working for the French aid agency Acted.

The US and the UK both seemingly have policies that they DO NOT pay off Terrorist, but in fact, for decades both make use a back-handed way of paying off dangerous, even murderous, criminals, that by any other description, are TERRORIST. This is done for some of the time tested reasons of Profit/Gain and/or Control.

Both men have come forth with declaring retaliation against IS. Sound familiar, but with different players (actors)?

The Department of State, aka State Department, has engaged in quite questionable practices and dealing with KNOWN very dangerous and even TERRORIST connected groups throughout the world. The State Dept. in the Benghazi ordeal intentionally put Americans in harms way all for Profit/ Gain and/or Control. Remember all of the finger pointing, lies, cover-ups and/or DECEPTION? They still refuse to come clean.

With having first had dealings with coming to find out the hard way about Department of State CORRUPTION and the USA's willingness to destroy even it's own citizen, I implore others to not stand down, nor stay complacent with tales, demand TRUTH!

Not to take away and/or express disrespect in any form or fashion with these purported beheadings, but my torture and first hand knowledge of Evil & Corruption at the hands of the USA, forced me on a sojourn that was designed by the State Department, and the Truth is a whole lot more unbelievable than fiction: Documentary-maker Lee Halpin meets death living Homeless in U.K. (Pics/VIDEO)

For me, it's not about conspiracy, it's about Truth. Demand It! DO Not be their fool!
Slaves aren't being told the whole Truth, let alone even a fraction of the Truth.

There is definitely something more taking place behind these purported beheadings.
Perhaps the world should be looking back in history with looking how these wars are brought on. Who, why, what and for WHOM do these actually serve.

What is it that "Islamic State" actually wants?

Are Smoke and Mirrors being used?


What is it that the USA, UK & others might actually seeking to gain?

Demand that even slaves are told the Truth!

and if you are in a country that isn't blocking this video, give it a look see:

The Islamic State group’s power is focused in Iraq and Syria, but there are groups far beyond those borders who have aligned themselves with the armed rebel group. Several small rebel groups in the Philippines have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group. Al Jazeera’s Jamela Alindogan reports from Manila.

Below is a link to a video related to those groups.

How the West Created the Islamic State

 September 13th, 2014

“This is an organisation that has an apocalyptic, end-of-days strategic vision which will eventually have to be defeated,” Gen Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Pentagon press conference in August.

Military action is necessary to halt the spread of the ISIS “cancer,” said President Obama. Yesterday he called for expanded airstrikes across Iraq and Syria, and new measures to arm and train Iraqi and Kurdish ground forces.

“The only way to defeat [IS] is to stand firm and to send a very straightforward message,” declared Prime Minister Cameron. “A country like ours will not be cowed by these barbaric killers.”

Missing from the chorus of outrage, however, has been any acknowledgement of the integral role of covert US and British regional military intelligence strategy in empowering and even directly sponsoring the very same virulent Islamist militants in Iraq, Syria and beyond, that went on to break away from al-Qaeda and form ‘ISIS’, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or now simply, the Islamic State (IS).

Since 2003, Anglo-American power has secretly and openly coordinated direct and indirect support for Islamist terrorist groups linked to al-Qaeda across the Middle East and North Africa. This ill-conceived patchwork geostrategy is a legacy of the persistent influence of neoconservative ideology, motivated by longstanding but often contradictory ambitions to dominate regional oil resources, defend an expansionist Israel, and in pursuit of these, re-draw the map of the Middle East.
