BREAKING: Jane's Analyst Implicates NATO Terror Group in Bangkok Blast

Jane's analyst at FCCT panel implicates "Grey Wolves" terror organization in Bangkok blast - created and for decades run out of the US embassy in Ankara, Turkey. 

August 25, 2015 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - The means, motivation, and opportunity have all already long been established linking last week's unprecedented terror attack in Bangkok to ousted US-backed dictator Thaksin Shinawatra and his foreign sponsors. It has also been established that nearly all of the potential suspects these interests may have used to carry out the bombings are also linked to US interests.

The bombing occurred as Thailand prepared to move forward with a new national charter and as additional measures were being put in place to fully uproot Shinawatra's political networks once and for all.

The bombing also follows a February double bombing just down the street in the popular Siam shopping district - both incidents involving nearly identical bombs and using identical means to put them in place before they detonated.

Eager to exonerate Thaksin Shianwatra - leader of a client regime the West has spent a decade and billions of dollars propping up - narratives involving foreign terrorists have been promoted across the Western media. The Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT) - a collection of foreign journalists from prominent Western news networks - conducted a panel to specifically lay the blame upon an obscure Turkish-based terror organization called the "Grey Wolves."

Forbes in their report, "Thailand's Shrine Bombing - The Case For Turkey's Grey Wolves," claims:

The most likely perpetrators of the deadly Bangkok bombing last week were militant members of a right-wing Turkish organization infuriated by the Thai government’s forcible repatriation of Uighur refugees back to China. Anthony Davis, a veteran security analyst with IHS-Jane’s, made a persuasive case for the Grey Wolves on a panel at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand Monday evening.

And while Forbes assures readers that domestic groups, including "political dissidents" could not have been responsible, neither Forbes nor the "experts" they cite qualify this claim.

In fact, large pipe bombs almost identical in make and material to those used last week and in the double Siam bombing, have been at the center of an ongoing investigation stretching as far back as 2010 where an apartment exploded in Nonthaburi as Shinawatra's "red shirts" were attempting to assemble explosive devices. A similar incident occurred in 2014 amid anti-Shinawatra protests, where two of Shinawatra's "red shirt" terrorists accidentally killed themselves when a large pipe bomb they were carrying exploded.

Thailand: BBC Tampers with Bangkok Crime Scene

BBC journalist knowingly handles evidence at bomb blast scene, using it as a prop in news segment designed to undermine Thai government before carrying it off. 

August 25, 2015 (Tony Cartalucci - ATN) - It has been over a week since a bomb tore through downtown Bangkok, killing 20 and injuring over 100 more. The police and military have been investigating the bombing considered one of the worst attacks of its kind in Bangkok.

And as the police and military do their job, the Western media has been busy doing theirs - not gathering facts and objectively reporting them - but distorting or entirely fabricating events to undermine the Thai government which - ironically - is precisely what the bombers were attempting to do.

Among those helping to aid and abet terrorism and instability in Thailand is Jonathan Head of the BBC. Head's coverage during the political conflict of 2013-2014 which saw hundreds of thousands and at times, over a million protesters take the street to call for the ousting of Thaksin Shianwatra's proxy regime, was transparently biased and at times, dangerously dishonest. Head regularly spun or covered up news regarding Shinawatra's armed death squads who attacked protester camps almost nightly and would kill 30 and injure hundreds more before the military finally seized power and restored peace and stability.

That peace and stability, backed by the vast majority of Thais, was the target of last week's bombing. The Western media, along with the BBC's Jonathan Head have done everything in their power to undermine the government ever since.

Tampering With the Crime Scene
The bomb exploded at a popular shrine on the corner of an extremely busy downtown intersection - in the heart of Bangkok's largest shopping and tourist district. With the bombing's goal to disrupt peace and stability, investigators and city officials moved quickly to gather evidence and restore both the shrine and the intersection back to working order.

Head was not only coincidentally onsite before the blast occurred, he also spent days at the blast site combing it for any evidence left behind by investigators. Head's goal, however, was not to assist Thailand's government in solving the crime, but rather to help continue carry out the terrorists' goal of undermining the credibility of the government itself.

Image: Jonathan Head knowingly holds evidence found at the blast site in his hands, handling it, and using as a prop in a news segment designed intentionally to discredit the investigation. Under US and European law, this is a criminal offense. Head would remove the evidence from the crime scene, carry it down the road and attempt to hand it over to police - with cameras rolling - in an attempt to humiliate Thailand. 

Head, in a BBC report titled, "BBC team finds shrapnel at Thai shrine blast site," claims to have been handed "evidence" at the scene of the blast - including what he claims were ball bearings and shrapnel. Instead of calling the police to come and investigate, Head instead handles the evidence, using it as a prop in a news segment designed to undermine the credibility of the investigation before carrying it away from the crime scene, and all while on camera, turning into a spectacle his attempts to hand it over at the gate of Thailand's national police headquarters down the road.

US vs China: US-backed Mobs Seek to Overthrow Malaysian Government

August 24, 2015 (Tony Cartalucci - LD) - Malaysia's "Berish" movement - an umbrella organization for various opposition groups opposed to the current government of Prime Minister Najib Razak - plans its fourth street demonstration in 8 years to unfold at the end of August.

While Bersih's alleged goal is "clean and fair elections," it is openly led by the government's opposition headed by the now imprisoned US-proxy Anwar Ibrahim and a myriad of US-funded and directed nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). The US State Department, through its US National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its subsidiary the National Democratic Institute (NDI), along with convicted financial criminal George Soros' Open Society Institute (OSI), have funded both Bersih directly, and many of the NGOs that constitute Bersih's core leadership.

Several NGOs currenlty openly funded by the US NED - i.e. Islamic Renaissance Front and Lawyers for Liberty - can be found also listed on Bersih's current "endorsees" list.

Despite years of immense US-funding, Bersih has recently pleaded for donations and now claims they've received over a half million Ringgit (over 100,000 USD). More recent reports claim the amount could be as high as 1.2 million Ringgit.

And while they claim they seek simply to reform Malaysian politics, Bersih's new leader, Maria Chin Abdullah openly admitted their goal for "Bersih 4.0" is to call for the resignation of Malaysia's current government. In a Facebook post she claimed:
"Reforms - we will continue to demand and this time Yes it's a tall order to ask the PM to resign but if we dont try we will never push the boundaries for clean & fair elections."
Apparently by "clean & fair elections," Bersih's leadership means elections in which their opponents have been undermined and otherwise eliminated, and in which they can take power - or in other words, another textbook case of US-backed regime change.

Image: To Berish, "clean and fair elections" means eliminating all of your opponents through a US-backed campaign of sedition and seizing power. 

Bersih's core leadership seeks to seize power in Malaysia from behind a facade built upon alleged reforms. It is seeking donations from the Malaysian public despite immense funding from the United States government and demonstrable support from across the West's extensive global media network. It is difficult to discern how a movement built on lies, fraud, thievery, and sedition represents a step forward for Malaysia which might explain why, after three previous staged demonstrations, those behind Bersih have yet to succeed in their true goal of overthrowing the current political order.

US' Bersih and America's Wider War on China 

Malaysia's Bersih movement is yet another example of so-called American "soft power" in action. The use of US-organized and funded street mobs to carry out political destabilization and regime change has likewise transpired in similar fashion in Thailand through the use of US-backed Thaksin Shinawatra and his "red shirt" street mobs, and in Myanmar with Aung San Suu Kyi and her legions of anti-Rohingya, violent "saffron monks."

Bangkok Blast: Confronting the West's "Pundit Investigation"

August 22, 2105 (Tony Cartalucci - ATN) - The investigation continues into a powerful bomb that tore through downtown Bangkok Monday, killing 20 and injuring over 100 more. The attack was timed as the current government reshuffled top positions, the new national charter prepared to move forward, and ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra faced the loss of his police rank.

The investigation faces many technical challenges but as the government, police, and military attempt to carry it out, the Western media  has attempted to "take over" and begin its own investigation, carried out by unqualified pundits and subjected to public opinion rather than actual fact.

The objective of the Western media is not truth, but rather to undermine the current government while attempting to exonerate Thaksin Shinawatra - leader of an ousted client regime groomed by and in the service of Western interests since as early as the 1990's.

To confront this intentional, politically motivated manipulation, it may be useful to examine several key questions facing any investigation and answer them with what real evidence now stands.

Establishing Means, Motive, and Opportunity

Shinawatra who held office from 2001-2006 and who ruled by proxy through successive regimes including one headed by his brother-in-law and the most recent by his own sister, attempted throughout his grip on power to divide and destroy the country. He systematically consolidated and transformed the police into his own paramilitary organization, augmented by a violent street movement known as the "red shirts."

Image: Thaksin Shinawatra's militants killing soldiers and bystanders on April 10, 2010. Mass murder and destruction is a hallmark of Shinawatra's political followers. Together over the years they have killed over 130, injured thousands, and destroyed billions in property.  
These well-armed fronts have been involved in the worst violence in recent Thai history particularly in large-scale violence in 2009, 2010, and again in 2013-2014 claiming nearly 130 lives in total, injuring thousands more, and resulting in billions in damage, including in 2010 when Shinawatra oversaw city-wide arson.

Since the military coup, there had been peace - enduring peace - as Shinawatra's political and militant networks were uprooted and the prospect of paid mobs and large numbers of armed terrorists rampaging in the streets were all but eliminated by nationwide sweeps.

Only occasionally, through terrorist attacks, has that peace been shattered. A February 2015 double pipe-bombing featuring a device similar to that used in the most recent bombing was seen as a warning of greater carnage to come. Other incidents included grenade attacks on Thailand's court buildings, traced back to Shinawatra's own cousin.
