Ininterrotti crimini di guerra in Yemen dalla criminale coalizione saudita, in un vergognoso silenzio globale

A cura di Enrico Vigna

 

Mentre la coscienza della solidarietà internazionale è attenuata e l’attenzione internazionale langue, sepolta dalla disinformazione o peggio dall’indifferenza, quelle organizzazioni che affermano di essere impegnate per i “diritti umani”, si rivelano estranee o distratte  circa l’eccidio sistematico commesso dalla coalizione americano-saudita e loro complici, contro civili, donne e bambini, sistematicamente e ferocemente da cinque anni, ogni giorno nello Yemen.

 

Dove sono i cantori del “dirittoumanesimo” globale, gli accusatori di “regimi e stati canaglia” indicati da USA e Israele, i praticanti le varie  “rivoluzioni colorate” in ogni dove ci sono  ingiustizie…tranne dove possono infastidire o contrastare interessi NATO o statunitensi?

Perché non levano le loro voci influenti “mediaticamente ed economicamente”, perché tacciono?

Nello Yemen da cinque si attua anni una guerra soprattutto sulla popolazione che vive in prima linea, sottoposta a attacchi indiscriminati che continuano senza sosta, senza alcuna segnale di discontinuità.

Una guerra che ha prodotto finora 3 milioni 650.000 sfollati, continuamente in crescita.

Una aggressione spietata dove non esiste la parola umanitario, dove il cosiddetto diritto internazionale umanitario che dovrebbe proteggere i civili, all’interno di un conflitto è quotidianamente calpestato nel silenzio, letale, internazionale.

 

 

 

Secondo molti testimoni e denunce, la coalizione saudita utilizza armamenti USA, prodotti e forniti dalla società Gazal Dynamics, che è fornitrice del sistema aeronautico americano, il quale ha in dotazione  bombe e missili come l’Mk 82, un missile a caduta libera leggera.

La coalizione guidata da Arabia Saudita e Stati Uniti non rispetta i minimi obblighi ai sensi delle leggi di guerra, e utilizza l’armamento statunitense in attacchi palesemente sproporzionati e indiscriminati, che provocano migliaia di vittime civili e danni a strutture civili nel paese arabo.

Dal marzo 2015, la coalizione saudita, ha iniziato questa guerra contro lo Yemen con l’obiettivo dichiarato di schiacciare il movimento Houthi di Ansarullah, che aveva preso il potere e cacciato il fedele alleato di Riyadh, l’ex presidente fuggitivo Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Ininterrotti crimini di guerra in Yemen dalla criminale coalizione saudita, in un vergognoso silenzio globale      
Anche secondo il quotidiano La Repubblica: “… Nello Yemen, negli ultimi mesi la crisi umanitaria si è ulteriormente aggravata, restando il punto del mondo dove si sta consumando la tragedia peggiore degli ultimi trent’anni. Un conflitto che, così come è avvenuto in Siria, colpisce soprattutto la popolazione civile, fin dall’inizio della guerra. Dallo scorso dicembre, infatti, nella sostanziale indifferenza della cosiddetta “comunità internazionale” e della maggior parte del sistema mediatico, qualcuno si è messo a calcolare che, di fatto, tre civili ogni giorno vengono uccisi, in media una vittima ogni 8 ore. ..Tre anni e oltre 600.000 persone yemenite morte e ferite, impedendo ai pazienti di recarsi all’estero per cure e bloccando l’ingresso delle medicine nel paese dilaniato dalla guerra…”.

Dopo gli innumerevoli bombardamenti sulle infrastrutture civili e gli ospedali, oggi sono oltre 2.400 i morti di colera e la crisi ha innescato quello che le Nazioni Unite hanno descritto come il peggior disastro umanitario del mondo.

Gli abitanti della provincia di Hodeidah hanno organizzato manifestazioni di protesta per le aggressioni criminali nel loro territorio contro la popolazione.
Una manifestazione di protesta è stata organizzata dagli  abitanti della provincia di Hodeidah per condannare l’ultimo crimine commesso dagli attacchi aerei sauditi contro i prigionieri nella provincia di Dhamar.
I partecipanti hanno lanciato slogan ed esposto  striscioni per denunciare i crimini del terribile massacro, che ha lasciato decine di prigionieri morti e feriti, che erano elencati nell’accordo di scambio firmato a Stoccolma.

La popolazione ha urlato il suo sdegno e ritiene le Nazioni Unite e la comunità internazionale pienamente responsabili degli atroci crimini commessi dall’aggressione contro il popolo yemenita.
Il 1° settembre l’aggressione aerea di USA-Arabia Saudita aveva lanciato sette incursioni su un edificio utilizzato per prigionieri di guerra a nord della provincia di Dhamar. Più di 150 persone sono state uccise e ferite nel massacro, mentre ancora continua il processo di recupero dei corpi delle vittime.      3 settembre 2019

USA: un documento del Federal Protective Service dice che i suprematisti bianchi vogliono usare il coronavirus come arma biologica

di Michele Metta

Quello che vi mostro e commento oggi è un documento che etichettare come sconvolgente è, assolutamente, non retorico.

Si tratta di un bollettino del Federal Protective Service, organo che fa capo al Dipartimento per la Sicurezza Nazionale degli Stati Uniti. Quel che emerge, è la volontà dei cosiddetti “suprematisti bianchi” di usare il coronavirus come mezzo per raggiungere i loro deliranti scopi.

In dettaglio, tra le loro mire si elencano quelle di sterminare le minoranze diffondendo tra queste il più possibile la malattia, vaporizzando il virus nei luoghi pubblici dove vivono in prevalenza comunità non di pelle bianca. Idem per i tasti degli ascensori, e le maniglie dei portoni. Operazioni dichiaratamente ispirate alle teorie di James Mason, sessantottenne pedofilo e guru neonazista USA, il quale predica la supposta necessità, tramite disordine, guerra civile, e morte, di un nuovo ordine mondiale basato sul dominio ariano.

È importantissimo sottolineare che il documento risale al febbraio di quest’anno; momento, cioè, in cui Trump negava la possibile diffusione della malattia nel proprio territorio nazionale. Coincidenza vuole che Mason sia un grande sostenitore proprio di Donald Trump.

Un documento, insomma, che fa sorgere non poche domande circa il momento che noi tutti stiamo vivendo.

From Cluster Bombs to Toxic Waste: Saudi Arabia is Creating the Next Fallujah in Yemen

Ahmed Abdulkareem
Yemen Toxic Legacy Feature photoAL-JAWF, YEMEN — As the world’s focus turns to the rapidly-spreading COVID-19 pandemic, Yemenis are reeling from their own brewing tragedy, contending with the thousands of cluster bombs, landmines and other exploded munitions that now litter their homeland. Just yesterday, a young child was killed and another was injured in the al-Ghail district of al-Jawf when a landmine left by the Saudi military exploded, witnesses told MintPress. Outraged and terrified by the presence of these unexploded ordnances, Ahmed Sharif, a father of 9 who owns a farm in the district called the unexploded ordnances “a significant threat to our children.”

Earlier this week, thousands of cluster bombs containing between dozens and hundreds of smaller submunitions were dropped by air and scattered indiscriminately over large areas near Ahmed’s farm. A large number of those munitions failed to explode on impact, creating a new threat to residents already reeling from 5 years of war, famine and an economic blockade. The use, production, sale, and transfer of cluster munitions is prohibited under the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions, an international agreement recognized by over 100 countries, but rejected by Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Saudi Arabia is estimated to have dropped thousands of tons of U.S.-made weapons in al-Jawf over the past 100 days alone. Al-Jawf is an oil-rich province that lies in Yemen’s north-central reaches along the Saudi border. The aerial campaign is likely a last-ditch effort to stem the tide of battlefield success by local volunteer fighters who teamed with Houthi forces to recapture large swaths of al-Jawf and Marib provinces. That campaign, for all intents and purposes, has failed.

On Wednesday, the Houthis announced that their military operation – dubbed “God Overpowered Them” – was complete and that al-Jawf was free of Saudi occupation. According to Houthi sources, more than 1,200 Saudi-led coalition fighters were killed or injured during the operation and dozens of Saudi troops, including officers, were captured. The Houthis also struck deep into Saudi territory in retaliation for the more than 250 Saudi airstrikes that were carried out during the campaign. In multiple operations, ballistic missiles and drones were used to target facilities inside Saudi Arabia, according to officials.

Saudi losses haven’t been limited to al-Jawf either. Last week, Marib province, which lies adjacent to Yemen’s capital of Sana’a, was recaptured following heavy battles with Saudi forces. Local tribal fighters were able to clear strategic areas in the Sirwah District with the assistance of Houthi forces and take control of the town of Tabab Al-Bara and the strategic Tala Hamra hills that overlook Marib city. Both the Saudi-led coalition and its allied militants initially admitted defeat but later described their loss as a tactic withdrawal.

Marib is now the second Yemeni governorate adjacent to Saudi Arabia to fall under the control by Yemen’s resistance forces in the last month, al-Jawf being the first. Both provinces have strategic importance to Saudi Arabia and could serve as a potential launch point for operations into Saudi Arabia’s Najran province.

“Saudi [Arabia] and America have planted our land with death”

The highly populated urban areas of Sana’a, Sadaa, Hodeida, Hajjah, Marib, and al-Jawf have been subjected to incomprehensible bombing campaigns during the Saudi-led war on Yemen, which turns five on March 26. The sheer scale of that campaign, which often sees hundreds of separate airstrikes carried out every day, coupled with its indiscriminate nature, has left Yemen one of the most heavily contaminated countries in the world.

Since 2015, when the war began, coalition warplanes have conducted more than 250,000 airstrikes in Yemen, according to the Yemeni Army. 70 percent of those airstrikes have hit civilian targets. Thousands of tons of weapons, most often supplied by the United States, have been dropped on hospitals, schools, markets, mosques, farms, factories, bridges, and power and water treatment plants and have left unexploded ordnances scattered across densely populated areas.

A significant proportion of those ordnances are still embedded in the ground or amid the rubble of bombed-out buildings, posing a threat to both civilians and the environment. As Man’e Abu Rasein, a father who lost two sons to an unexploded cluster bomb in August of 2018 puts it: “Saudi [Arabia] and America have planted our land with death.” Abu Rasein’s sons, Rashid, ten, and Hussein, eight, were grazing their family’s herd of sheep in the village of al-Ghol north of Sadaa, far from any battlefield. They spotted an unusual looking object and like most curious young boys, picked it up to investigate. But the object they found was no toy, it was an unexploded cluster munition dropped by a Saudi jet. After hearing an explosion, the boys’ family went to investigate and found them lying dead, covered in blood.

Since March of 2015, Human Rights Watch has recorded more than 15 incidents involving six different types of cluster munitions in at least five of Yemen’s 21 governorates. According to the United Nations Development Program’s Emergency Mine Action Project, some of the heaviest mine and ERW (explosive remnants of war) contamination is reported in northern governorates bordering Saudi Arabia, southern coastal governorates and west-central governorates, all areas surrounding Houthi-dominated regions of Yemen. Since 2018 alone, the UNDP has cleared nearly 9,000 landmines and over 116,000 explosive remnants in Yemen.

From the Yemeni war of 1994 to the six wars in Sadaa, Yemenis have suffered several wars over the last three decades. Yet thanks to saturation of U.S. weapons, the ongoing war has brought death on a toll not seen in Yemen for hundreds of years. In Sadaa, the Saudi coalition has a significant legacy of unexploded ordinances, up to one million according to figures provided to MintPress by the Yemeni Executive Mine Action Center (YEMAC), an organization backed by the United Nations.

The Project Manager of YEMAC identified heavy cluster munition contamination in Saada, al-Jawf, Amran, Hodeida, Mawit, and Sanaa governorates, including in Sanaa city. Contamination was also reported in Marib. For the time being, YEMAC is the only organization working throughout the country during the ongoing war. Their teams are confronted with a very complex situation, disposing of both conventional munitions and bombs dropped from airplanes, including explosive remnants of war rockets, artillery shells, mortars, bombs, hand grenades, landmines, cluster bombs, and other sub-munitions and similar explosives.

Saudi Arabia’s toxic legacy

In addition to killing and injuring hundreds of civilians, American-made weapons have exposed Yemen’s people to highly toxic substances on a level not seen since the now-infamous use of radioactive depleted uranium by the United States in Fallujah, Iraq, which to this day is causing abnormally high rates of cancer and birth defects.

The hazardous chemicals from Saudi Coalition military waste, including radioactive materials, fuel hydrocarbons, and heavy metals, has already led to outbreaks of disease. Vehicles abandoned on battlefields, usually in various states of destruction, contain toxic substances including PCBs, CFCs, DU residue, heavy metals, unexploded ordnances, asbestos and mineral oils. Hundreds of these military scraps remain publicly accessible in Nihm, al-Jawf, Serwah, Marib and throughout Yemen.

Aside from the threat they pose to life and limb, unexploded ordnances contain toxic substances like RDX, TNT, and heavy metals which release significant levels of toxic substances into the air, soil and water. According to both the Ministry of Water and Environment and the Ministry of Health, which have undertaken environmental assessments on the impact of urban bombing, high levels of hazardous waste and air pollutants are already present in a populated areas

Alongside the still unknown quantities of more conventional weapons remnants in Yemen, the waste from the cleanup of bombed-out buildings has been found to be especially contaminated with hazardous materials, including asbestos which is used in military applications for sound insulation, fireproofing and wiring among other things. Fires and heavy smoke billowing over heavily populated civilian areas following Saudi bombing runs also pose an imminent threat to human health. A common sight in many Yemeni cities since the war began, these thick clouds of toxic smoke sometimes linger for days and coat both surfaces and people’s lungs with hazardous toxins like PAHs, dioxins and furans, materials which have been shown to cause cancer, liver problems and birth defects.

Before the war began, most hazardous materials were trucked to Sanaa where they were separated and disposed of properly at the sprawling al-Azragein treatment plant south of the capital. But that plant was among the first targets destroyed by Saudi airstrikes after the war began. After it was bombed, puddles and heaps of toxic material were left to mix with rainwater and seep into surrounding areas. Yemeni researchers are still trying to grasp the scale of pollution from biohazardous chemicals at the site.

Although a comprehensive nationwide environmental assessment of the impact of urban bombing in Yemen has yet to be completed, high levels of hazardous waste and air pollutants have been recorded by many hospitals and environmental agencies. Some idea of the long-term effects can also be gleaned from studies carried out in areas where similar toxins have been used, particularly by the United States in Fallujah, Iraq and in Vietnam, where scientific assessments have shown increased cases of birth defects, cancer and other diseases, including in U.S. veterans.

In southern Yemen, where Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates operate largely unchallenged, the coalition has been disposing of military waste in large trenches devoid of any measures to mitigate potential toxic fallout.  Waste is dumped into large holes and either detonated or simply buried, inevitably contaminating soil and groundwater according to data from the UN Environment Program.

Yemen’s coastline hasn’t been immune either. The country’s General Authority for Environmental Protection said Wednesday that the Saudi-led coalition is dumping toxic and polluted waste on the shores of Yemen and in Yemeni regional waters, causing great damage to the marine environment, the deaths of fish and marine organisms, and in some cases, actually changing the color of the sea to a toxic green. The agency stated that in addition to dumping toxic waste, the coalition was allowing unsafe fishing practices such as marine dredging and the use of explosives by foreign ships, destroying the marine environment and coral reefs.

One hundred years to safety

Thousands of displaced Yemenis cannot fathom returning home due to the large number of explosives potentially hidden in and around their houses. Removing them all would require an end to the U.S.-backed war and economic blockade. Special equipment and armored machines such as armored excavators would need to be brought in, a slim prospect in a country unable to secure even the basic stapes of life.

Explosive remnants do not just impact lives and limbs, they prevent the use of potentially productive agricultural land and the rebuilding of important infrastructure. Like many border areas in Saada and Hajjah, fertile soil in al-Jawf and Marib has become so environmentally polluted since the war began that it could take decades to recover. Explosive remnants also prevent access to vital resources like water and firewood, cripples the movement of residents, including children traveling to school, and prevents aid from reaching those in need.

Even if the Saudi-led coalition were to stop the war immediately and lift the blockade, its legacy of indiscriminate bombing on such a massive scale will be felt for years to come. Due to the intensity of the bombing, experts at the United Nations Development Program’s Yemeni Executive Mine Action Center estimate that clearance could take at least 100 years in larger cities. Despite these dangers, desperate families with nowhere to go do not waste a lull in the barrage of Saudi airstrikes or a short-lived ceasefire to attempt to return home.

A Man-Made Virus?

The Vatican says the coronavirus was created in a “laboratory in a powerful and wealthy country”

Cardinal and Archbishop of Colombo Malcolm Ranjith, is convinced that the Covid-19 coronavirus was created by the hands of man in the “laboratory of a powerful and wealthy country”. The Cardinal demanded that the United Nations initiate an investigation in this regard, and that those responsible are prosecuted on charges of genocide and are punished. This was reported by the correspondent of the Italian newspaper Il Messaggero.

“Some viruses,” he noted, “that we have been talking about in recent days, are the product of unscrupulous experiments. We must prohibit experiments of this type that lead to loss of lives and cause pain and suffering for all mankind… These types of research are not carried out by individuals in poor countries, but are carried out in the laboratories of rich states. Producing such things is a very serious crime against humanity. I pray to God that he helps to discover those who have sown this poison. I think that the United Nations should step up to understand how this incident arose and punish those responsible. Such research should be prohibited.”

Who created the virus?

The Vatican Cardinal does not explicitly name which country he accuses of creating the virus, but it is not difficult to guess who he means when referring to the laboratory of a “rich and powerful country”.

As Larry Romanoff, a columnist at the Canadian Global Research Center, said recently, the coronavirus was created in the United States. According to him, the virus definitely did not arise in the seafood market in Chinese Wuhan, where the epidemic broke out. He believes that he was most likely brought there from outside, and even named the location of the biological weapons laboratory.

“The only possible source of the coronavirus is the United States because only this country has all branches of the evolutionary tree of coronaviruses. The original source of the COVID-19 virus was the US military laboratory at Fort Detrick,” said Romanoff.

The expert’s findings are based on research by Japanese and Taiwanese epidemiologists. He recalled that last August, a wave of pneumonia took place in the United States, the source of which Americans said was vaping. Several cases of the disease were lethal. At that time, a doctor from Taiwan warned the United States that the cause of pneumonia could be coronavirus, but no one listened to him. Romanoff drew attention to the fact that just before the outbreak of the epidemic began, the United States somehow closed its main military bio-laboratory at Fort Detrick.

Laboratory of death

According to the media, in this laboratory they were experimenting with such dangerous microbes and toxins as Ebola virus, smallpox, anthrax, plague, as well as poison ricin. Epidemiological outbreaks were also investigated, and projects were carried out for government agencies, universities, and pharmaceutical companies. In April 2019, the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases’ Department of Molecular and Translational Sciences issued a report on the results of studying coronavirus in bats, according to which… “a shortage of drugs capable of resisting pancoronavirus activity increases the vulnerability of public health systems to the highly pathogenic coronavirus pandemic.”

Even before the outbreak of the epidemic in China – August 31st, 2019 – the New York Times published a story about the development in the United States of a mysterious epidemic of a previously unknown lung disease, which at that time affected more than 200 people.

Cannabis, e-cigarettes, and vaping were suspected. However, those who did not smoke at all were also sick. And therefore the viral-bacterial nature of the severe disease of the lung system was not excluded. As of October 1st 2019 alone, 1,080 cases of the disease were recorded in 48 states and the Virgin Islands, including deaths.

He also drew attention to another mysterious episode related to the emergence of the virus. From October 18th to 27th last year, Wuhan hosted the next Military World Games, to which the Pentagon sent a delegation of several hundred people. In this regard, Global Research, with reference to Chinese social media publications, mentions five foreign athletes or other employees who were hospitalised in Wuhan with an infection unknown at the time. The subsequent explosive increase in morbidity generally corresponds to the standard incubation period of coronavirus established by doctors (about 14 days).

The Chinese representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zhao Lijian, said in this regard on his Twitter page that a dangerous coronavirus had been brought to Wuhan by military personnel from the United States of America.

According to him, the US is obliged to explain why the disease appeared in Wuhan. Lijian also wrote that information appeared from Robert Redfield’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, stating that there had been cases of people dying of influenza in the United States before the outbreak in Wuhan Province. However, after they died, they were found to have a dangerous coronavirus.

In the United States, this demarche by a representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the People’s Republic of China caused indignation. President Donald Trump accused China of spreading false information.

During a White House briefing, he said “China was spreading false information that our military gave them this [virus]. It is a lie. And instead of arguing, I have to name where it [the virus] came from. It really came from China,” said Trump. However, he did not say anything specific about the specific accusations made by the experts.

Meanwhile, the theory that the coronavirus could have been bred in bio-laboratories over the ocean, after which it deliberately or inadvertently went out of control, is shared by Russian experts.

For example, former member of the United Nations Biological Weapons Commission Igor Nikulin stated that “COVID-19 is assembled in three parts: bat coronavirus, snake coronavirus, and HIV component (human immunodeficiency virus) – glycoprotein protein. In nature, such a combination could not happen.”

As he told the Tsargrad news agency, there are more than enough grounds to suspect that the coronavirus is a US bio-weapon. Firstly, the time and place are too well chosen to be considered a mere coincidence. Currently it is the height of the trade war between China and the United States, and the American President Donald Trump said six months ago that if the Chinese don’t come to their senses, they will regret it. Why the outbreak happened in Wuhan, and not Beijing, Hong Kong, or Shanghai, is also roughly understandable. There’s a pro-American Maidan in Hong Kong. There are a lot of American missions in Shanghai, almost all American companies, and thousands of Americans work there, if not tens of thousands. And Beijing is the capital, there are too big control measures, there are a million cameras that record faces, explains the expert. They chose a place where control is easier, and the fact that there is an institute of virology is also good, it is possible to accuse the Chinese of arranging everything themselves, so successfully and during the New Year, noted Igor Nikulin.

“In addition, there was an American consulate in Wuhan,” he continued. “But they closed it, before the Chinese declared the epidemic,” said the expert. “So they knew about it beforehand? The information is also not in their favour,” noted Nikulin. “I.e., there are many details that show that it is not coincidental,” stressed the expert.

He also recalled that until 2000, the coronavirus had never been transmitted to humans. And since Americans adopted an ethnically specific biological weapons program in 1999, already 8 viruses out of 38 have moved from animals to humans.

How the vaccine was created

Reports from the United States that progress has been made in the development of a vaccine against the virus have also raised questions. How exactly the US managed to beat other countries in the development of a vaccine against coronavirus COVID-19 in a situation when it is impossible from the point of view of the technological process? Such a question was asked by the well-known journalist Sergey Kurginyan on the air of the talk show “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on the TV channel “Rossiya 1”.

“The Americans have officially declared that they will test the vaccine, right? How did they make it? Unlike many others, I believe Americans are a great technical nation… But other peoples aren’t idiots either. Neither Germans, nor Russians, nor Chinese. So, they were so ahead of the vaccine, so much so that it is impossible to get so technologically ahead,” said Kurginyan.

He noted that in this case the question arises as to how such an advance has occurred in technological terms? This is especially important in a situation where the virus was first recorded in China and when China was seemingly the first to start developing and testing the vaccine.

“You either skip certain stages of checks on rats and so on, or you don’t skip them, so then you started it when? These stages have a chronological sequence, they cannot be skipped! Are they disrupting the technology cycle or have they got it? And if they got it, it was like what? An antidote? So there is an end product?” continued Kurginyan.

As is known, today there are approximately 400 centers and laboratories in the United States in which biological weapons are being developed. And about 40 of them are located near the Russian borders.

Not long ago, the Russian Defense Ministry accused American scientists working in the Georgian Lugar medical center of experiments on people. The military released evidence that the United States, under the pretext of a “treatment center”, had established a secret biological weapons laboratory in Georgia – near the Russian borders. The experiments there have already killed 73 people.

This sensational information was first released by former Minister of State Security of Georgia Igor Giorgadze, who gave data on the death of 30 people who allegedly died in December 2015 during treatment in the laboratory against hepatitis C. In April and August 2016 there died respectively 30 and 13 people. And in the column “cause of death” it was written “unknown”, and an investigation into this was not carried out. The Russian Ministry of Defence distributed an official report on US military and biological activities on the Georgian territory. The information inside it confirms the Pentagon’s concept of contactless war. Its essence is the use of non-standard “ammunition”, which is now actively developed by Americans. Weapons can even be insects or animals infected with human-dangerous diseases.

If you let the genie out of the bottle…

The narrative of possible US involvement in the spread of the virus is described by many as a conspiracy theory. But that is what’s curious. With particular force, the epidemic broke out for some reason in two countries – China and Italy. At the same time, China is the main economic competitor of the United States on the world stage, and Italy is its most recalcitrant ally in Western Europe, where a “friend of Putin”, the leader of the Liga Nord, Matteo Salvini, is about to return to power again. Could that be a coincidence? Maybe, but it might not have been a coincidence too. Especially since the US has a great “track record” of trying to eliminate its political opponents with poisons and even biological weapons. Ranging from the numerous assassination attempts against Fidel Castro to the bizarre death of Venezuela’s popular leader Hugo Chávez.

But if this has already been done, why could the coronavirus not be the consequence of such American “experiments” no longer against the leader alone, but also a whole country? After all, they also did this before without hesitation – they bombed Serbia, and demolished Iraq and Libya.

They may, however, object by saying that the epidemic has now broken out in the United States itself. But it is known that if a genie is released from the bottle, even if accidentally, it starts to devour everyone indiscriminately, including those who released it.

Russian politician Franz Klintsevich said he was very cautious about all conspiracy theories related to coronavirus. However, in his opinion, most of the facts point to a laboratory in the US. “The conclusions are obvious: it is established that the virus is artificial and with a high degree of probability is linked with American soldiers,” said the politician.

Bufale mainstream sull’epidemia di coronavirus in Iran

Contropiano
L’epidemia di coronavirus sta mettendo a nudo, in maniera obiettiva e senza alcuna possibilità di replica, i danni apportati dalle privatizzazioni ai Sistemi Sanitari Nazionali, la debolezza della narrazione dell’utilità pubblica del “privato” e la natura antipopolare e speculativa che ha assunto l’Unione Europea. Solo pericolosi estremisti del Libero Mercato possono continuare a sostenere privatizzazioni e/o l’utilità della UE.

Ci hanno raccontato per anni, da Berlusconi in poi, che gli ospedali erano un ricettacolo di nullafacenti, una spesa inutile, un costo che non potevamo più permetterci. Ed allora, tutti si sono scagliati sul Sistema Sanitario Nazionale, tagliando, regionalizzando, privatizzando, convenzionando e chiudendo. Il risultato è che quella che fino a 20 anni fa era tra le migliori Sanità del Mondo adesso registra la mortalità più alta per Coronavirus.
Bufale mainstream sull'epidemia di coronavirus in Iran

Nessuna scusante, nessun appello. L’unica sarebbe requisire la Sanità privata, ri-statalizzare il servizio sanitaria, assumere in massa e nazionalizzare la produzione di farmaci e macchinari. Ma purtroppo non sembra quella la strada intrapresa, al contrario si procede ancora sulla via del privato che continuerà a fare affari sulla salute dei cittadini.

E poi c’è l’UE che anche in questo caso, da questo orecchio non ci sente. Non darà alcun aiuto vero. Nessuna agevolazione, nessuna concessione a sforamenti: l’ideologia dell’ultraliberismo e del rigore europeista non deve essere messa in discussione per qualche migliaio di morti!

Ancor più se di un paese “cicala” come l’Italia, dove si campa anche troppo per i gusti della BCE.

Come se non bastasse, nel bel mezzo dell’epidemia in Europa, gli Stati Uniti inviano 30.000 soldati e centinaia di carri armati, per l’esercitazione NATO “Defend Europe 20”, in chiave anti-russa.

Come se non bastasse ancora arriva l’aiuto cinese: respiratori, mascherine e medici super specializzati. Si inizia a rompere un po’ il pregiudizio che si ha sulla Cina e sui cinesi, popolo che secondo alcuni governatori ed alcuni giornalisti con l’alito di grappa alle 9 di mattina, mangiano topi vivi, dormono in stanza con i maiali, buttano i morti nell’immondizia.

Lo smacco c’è, inutile negarlo. Ed allora si deve stroncare sul nascere qualunque “prurito”. Il messaggio che deve passare tra i cittadini è che non bisogna azzardarsi nemmeno a pensare di poter uscire dalla UE, perché fuori c’è solo morte e fame. E se si bazzica con la Cina si fa la fine… dell’Iran!

E’ infatti iniziata una campagna di denigrazione mainstream di questo paese mediorientale.

Non stiamo parlando di personaggi del bar prestati alla politica o al giornalismo. Ma di televisioni nazionali, di giornalisti “di sinistra” e di giornali di primo piano. La tesi, “accreditata” dalle testimonianze di oppositori al “regime” iraniano che dal loro salotto a Londra o New York riescono ad avere un punto di vista privilegiato sulla situazione del loro Paese d’origine, è di un “Olocausto”. Si presenta uno scenario di fosse comuni, di morti ammassati su una superficie pari a due campi da calcio (precisione incredibile) e di gente che muore sul marciapiede di fronte all’ospedale senza essere soccorsa, nemmeno si trattasse degli Stati Uniti!

Eppure i numeri ufficiali dicono di un numero di contagiati in calo, che la mortalità non è in situazione critica e, soprattutto, che i guariti sono 5.400 contro i 2.800 italiani. “E allora il regime mente!”.

E non basta constatare che nemmeno i media dei più acerrimi nemici dell’Iran (BBC e CNN) ne facciano menzione: gli italiani ci credono, quasi ad “autoconsolarsi” del fatto che siamo il Paese che probabilmente avrà più contagiati e più morti a fine epidemia, purtroppo.

In realtà la situazione, a quanto vedono con i propri occhi amici e parenti iraniani residenti a Teheran, Karaj, Shiraz (informazioni di prima mano di persone non legate agli Ayatollah), è ben diversa.

Certo, ci può essere un modo diverso e meno esteso per fare tamponi, dunque i numeri potrebbero essere più alti, come altrove del resto, ed i decessi di pazienti con pesanti patologie pregresse potrebbero anche essere ascritti alle patologie principali. Forse. Sicuramente anche lì, principalmente nel focolaio di Gilan, come tra l’altro in Lombardia, la Sanità sta avendo grossi problemi di intasamento. Ma una cosa è certa: lo Stato sta provando a contenere l’epidemia impiegando tutte le sue forze e certo non sta facendo morire per strada i cittadini.

Lo Stato iraniano, tramite polizia e pasdaran distribuisce gratuitamente in strada mascherine e guanti monouso, ci sono sanificazioni notturne, con soluzioni di acqua ed ipoclorito sparate sui muri, sui bancomat, ovunque. C’è un servizio di call center pubblico che chiama a casa i cittadini chiedendo se qualcuno in famiglia presenta sintomi, dando consigli e se necessario visitando a domicilio. Alcuni ospedali sono stati completamente evacuati dai pazienti normali che sono stati sistemati in altri ospedali, anche privati, precettati dallo Stato che contribuisce alle spese del paziente e sono stati istituti ospedali pubblici solo per pazienti affetti da coronavirus.

C’è da notare che i pazienti di Coronavirus sono curati gratuitamente a spese dello Stato in controtendenza al fatto che la Sanità iraniana prevede un contribuito molto elevato da parte del cittadino anche per i salva-vita (e questo è uno dei paradossi in un Paese in cui è tutto nazionalizzato, dalle pompe di benzina ai negozi di tappeti) il che si spiega anche col fatto che le sanzioni non hanno permesso all’Iran di acquistare brevetti e farmaci a prezzi accessibili dall’estero.

Non è stato necessario dichiarare il lockdown perché i cittadini hanno autonomamente deciso di mettersi in quarantena per contenere il virus e chi necessita di andare a lavorare, specialmente nei posti pubblici, vengono monitorati con la misurazione della temperatura all’entrata ed all’uscita dal posto di lavoro.

C’è inoltre un piccolo indennizzo per le famiglie che hanno un familiare che si è ammalato di Coronavirus. Si è anche concesso i domiciliari a molti detenuti che rischiavano di essere contagiati. Iran: 70.000 indultati. Italia: 0 indultati, 14 morti e centinaia di feriti dalla repressione statale.

Insomma, per quanto si possa concordare o dissentire con le misure intraprese dal governo iraniano, non si può certo pensare ad un paese che scava fosse per ammonticchiarci i morti. Questa è una narrazione utile a chi vuole spostare l’attenzione dal problema italiano e da quello della UE. E l’immaginario collettivo, di molti occidentali (anche di parecchi compagni), vede l’Iran come una sorta di retaggio del medioevo islamico.

In realtà si tratta di un Paese, certo, in sofferenza, ma anche industrializzato, con uno stato sociale, con un sistema pensionistico (vige “Quota 90”, 60 anni di età, 30 di contributi) con le parabole a vista che trasmettono la tv americana con tolleranza delle autorità nonostante lo stato di assedio, con un diritto e con delle garanzie per i detenuti, con dei partiti politici di centro, di destra e di “sinistra” (virgolette sono d’obbligo dato che la sinistra iraniana è per l’occidentalizzazione dei costumi e per concessioni sull’hijab, ma è anche per capitolare all’egemonia della UE e degli USA e per le privatizzazioni selvagge. Da questo punto di vista tutto il Mondo è Paese per le “sinistre”).

L’Iran è inoltre un Paese dove la condizione della donna, è molto migliore di quello che si possa pensare. Le donne iraniane sono libere ed emancipate, lavorano quasi tutte e tutte hanno una istruzione. Nulla a che vedere con il vero medioevo islamico, l’Arabia Saudita, che invece ci teniamo stretta come alleato politico e militare.

Sarebbe probabilmente il caso per gli italiani di smetterla di abboccare ai diversivi diffusi a piene mani da chi ci ha ridotto alla condizione attuale e di concentrarsi su quello che tra l’altro la Storia dimostra riuscirci meglio: riuscire ad invertire la tendenza nel momento in cui sembriamo più deboli.

COVID-19: All Truth Has Three Stages

Larry Romanoff

First, it is ignored.

Second, it is widely ridiculed.

Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

With COVID-19, we have now entered Stage 2. At first, the media ignored the claims and accumulating mountain of evidence that the virus originated in the US. But the spread of information and restatements of evidence from all sides, including in the US itself, has become too intense and now the claims are being openly ridiculed in the Western media.

Briefly, Chinese virologists discovered conclusively that the original source of the virus was not China, nor Wuhan, nor the seafood market, but had in fact been traced to the US, the most probable scenario being that the virus might have originated at the US Military’s bio-weapons lab at Fort Detrick (which was shut down by the CDC in July, because of outbreaks), and brought to China during the World Military Games.

Also, Japanese and Taiwanese virologists arrived independently at the conclusion – that the virus could have originated in the US.

The Americans did their best from before the beginning to deflect culpability by crafting tales of bats, snakes, pangolins, the seafood market, the Wuhan University being a bio-weapons facility (which it is not), and the CIA tale leaked through the VOA and Radio Free Asia that the virus leaked from that university. They stated (factually) that Chinese researchers had participated (7 years ago) in similar virus research funded by the US NIH, thus somehow insinuating Chinese culpability, ignoring that the prior research was irrelevant to current events.

I must say the Americans have proven to be very skillful in grabbing the microphone first, to create an “official” narrative of a current event while flooding the media with sufficient finger-pointing to preclude a gullible public the time to logically assemble the pieces on their own.

They ignored the very real fact that few nations would either create or release a biological weapon that attacks primarily itself. They ignored too, the geopolitical likelihood of an ”end game” – that a virus is a powerful weapon of economic warfare, able to do to China’s economy what a trade war could not do.

Casual readers tend to ignore the fact that, in the American mentality, there are many solid geopolitical reasons to attack China, Iran, and Italy, the remaining countries merely constituting unfortunate collateral damage.

Many virus articles containing this and similar information had been published by second-tier internet news sites, some articles gaining enormous readership with hundreds of thousands of downloads and much re-posting. Many of these articles have been translated into 6 or 7 languages and published on websites all around the world. Simultaneously, many posts were made on Chinese social media speculating on the odd circumstances and long chain of unusual coincidences that led to the virus outbreak in Wuhan.

One of the articles referred to above, was translated and posted on Chinese social media and gathered 76,000 comments in the first 8 hours. Eventually, the major Chinese media outlets made the same claims – that the virus could have originated in the US and that the Americans were engaging in a massive cover-up.

Then, Zhao LiJian, a spokesman for China’s Foreign Ministry, made the story official, through a number of posts on US social media. One major media article, this in the NYT, noted that “Zhao’s remarks were spread on China’s most prominent social media platform, Weibo . . . [and] had been viewed more than 160 million times, along with screenshots of the original Twitter posts.

It seems LiJian’s Twitter posts, being essentially an official source that could not easily be ignored, claiming the virus was brought to China from the US during the Military Games, and demanding an explanation from the US, were receiving too much public attention to be ignored. All of the above created sufficient political pressure to force the Western media to respond. And of course they responded by ignoring the facts of the message and trashing the messenger.

On March 12, the UK Guardian ran a story claiming China was “pushing propaganda” about the virus coming from the US. (1) On March 13, the New York Times ran a similar story of a “China coronavirus conspiracy” of false claims about the source of the virus. (2) Then, on March 14, ABC News ran a story titled “False claims about sources of coronavirus cause spat between the US, China”, in which it ridiculed China and the claims of a US-virus. (3)

The Seattle Times published a version of the story, stating, “China is pushing a new theory about the origins of the coronavirus: It is an American disease . . . introduced by members of the U.S. Army who visited Wuhan in October. There is not a shred of evidence to support that, but the notion received an official endorsement from China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, whose spokesman accused American officials of not coming clean about what they know about the disease.” (4) The UK Independent published their own version of “China’s conspiracy theory” (5), as did CNN (6).

The ABC article claimed that “Assistant Secretary David Stilwell gave [Chinese] Ambassador Cui Tiankai a “very stern representation of the facts,” claiming Cui was “very defensive” in the face of this “official” American assault. The US State Department is quoted as having said, “We wanted to put the [Chinese] government on notice we won’t tolerate [conspiracy theories] for the good of the Chinese people and the world.”

Following that, the Washington Post, Bloomberg, and half a dozen other press wires and media outlets have contacted this author for interviews, eager for an opportunity to trash this ‘conspiracy theory’ at its source. The US Embassy in Beijing also “reached out” to the author “to talk about it”.

If the public information campaign and the resulting political pressure can continue, we will eventually enter stage three where the media will begin admitting first the possibility, then the likelihood, then the fact, of the US being the source of the “China” virus.

“The Real Case-Fatality Rate of the Novel Coronavirus in Italy is at Least 10 Times Lower than the Official Data”.

Patrizia Cecconi
https://www.lantidiplomatico.it/resizer/picscache/700x350c50/cf03b45280cf1474e530a0d5a3ba7236.jpgIn order to achieve conscious responsibility on the part of the population, the authorities should offer coherence. They have not done so in the past and they do not do so now. In the third interview with Dr. Leopoldo Salmaso (specialist in Infectious and Tropical Diseases, and Public Health, who has worked for 30 years at the Department of Infectious Diseases of the Padua Teaching Hospital (Italy), and 5 years in Tanzania, controlling epidemics like Cholera, Thyphoid, Hemorrhagic Fevers, and intra-hospital Polio), he insists on letting the figures speak for themselves.

The official report on the 2017-18 seasonal flu concludes that 8.7 million people consulted the family doctor/pediatrician by phone for a “flu-like syndrome”. Less than 1/4 were visited by the doctor. No less than 18,000 people, mostly elderly, “died with influenza as a complication”. Of those 18,000, only 173 died in a resuscitation unit.

Q. Good morning doctor, welcome back from Tanzania… through Austria, since no airline has wanted to fly you back directly to Venice. If you had been a few days late, you would not get home, not even from Austria! We Italians are now qualified as plague people: me too I cannot go back to Italy because Great Britain has closed the flights, although they too have the virus: they dance, they embrace each other, they cough in your face, they feel immune, but they have closed a school attended by Italians!…
But let’s move on to our interview: What do you think about the situation in Italy, due to the numerous deaths associated with Covid-19?

A. Every year, in Italy, the deaths associated with the common seasonal flu are 20-30 times more than those recently associated with Covid19. How comes that we don’t clog the resuscitations units every year?
Look at the data on Covid-19 (source: Italian Ministry of Health), updated at March 10th, 2020: 8,514 cases with 631 deaths. Please notice that this is an extremely biased sample, because the tests have been done mainly on sick people. The majority of experts, including Ilaria Capua1, believe that asymptomatic cases are 10 to 100 times higher. Therefore the case-fatality rate would not be 7.4%, but at least ten times lower.

Q. Can you tell us more about the the official data about the last seasonal flu in Italy?

A. Yes, that is the seasonal flu 2017-18: 8.7 million people turned to the family doctor/pediatrician by phone for a “flu-like syndrome”. Less than 1/4 were visited by the doctor. No less than 18,000 people, mostly elderly, died “with flu complications”. Out of those 18,000, only 173 (1 in 100) died in a resuscitation unit, and overall there were 764 “serious cases with confirmed flu in Intensive Care Units”.
That is: the other 17,000 people died at home, or in a nursing home, or in some hospital ward, with no confirmed diagnosis of flu. If the media had unleashed the current uproar two years ago, no less than 75,000 people with influenza would have clogged the ICUs, at a rate of 750 new admissions every day (while so far we have admitted to ICUs a total of 650 patients positive to Covid-19).
The comparison between these data confirms that we are facing an epidemic of panic, and that the very spreaders are the media.

Q. We are told that Italy has the highest case-fatality rate worldwide, and this makes us being considered the top spreaders in Europe, so much so that Italy is now completely isolated and many people, like me, cannot return home.

A. The most reliable data come from South Korea, which records a case-fatality rate around 6 per thousand (1/12 of ours). This is explained by the fact that Korea has done carpet testing since the very beginning (more than 200,000 tests done so far) and confirms what I said above: that our statistics, using a very biased denominator (ill people), falsely magnify the ratio between dead and infected people, i.e. the case-fatality rate.
If we then compare the mortality rates, Covid19 so far has a mortality rate of 1 per 100,000 inhabitants, while the flu every year reaps 20-30 lives per 100,000 inhabitants.

Q. Among the many messages on social networks, in particular Whatsapp, there arrive really worrying calls by doctors from the ICUs. Can you tell us something about that?

A. Thanks to our National Health System, Italy has been ranking at the top of the world, with a very enviable quality/cost ratio, but since 1992 (law for the privatization of the NHS) the whole system has been dismantled to the advantage of private profit: they are not interested in investing in the more expensive sectors, such as organ transplants and ICUs. This plundering will never be denounced and condemned enough.
You ask me about the testimonies and heartfelt appeals by doctors and nurses from the ICUs, who are under real stress because of the seriously ill patients with Covid19. Well, I feel sympathetic on a human level, but I must say that they are misleading in order to understand this “epidemic”. It would be like using the testimony of the sailor of a Titanic lifeboat in order to reconstruct the story of that shipwreck… but here, today, we only have a few lifeboats: there is neither the Titanic nor the iceberg. There is no epidemic, there is no pandemic. And we have two notorious precedents, just with two variants of coronavirus that caused such a sensation and turned out to be real “straw fires”: SARS in the year 2002 (8000 cases in all) and MERS in 2012 (800 cases). And it should be noted that SARS had a case-fatality rate of 9%, MERS an appalling 38%.

Q. We hear rumors of “almost” ready vaccines from Israel or the US, which could save many lives attacked by this virus. What do you think about?

A. Surprise: so much noise for a vaccine?
In the common flu of 2017-18 the prevalent strain was A/H1N1pdm09 (better known as H1N1 or “swine”). It was included in the flu vaccine administered to about half the Italians over-65-year-old, not only that year, but also in the previous years. That strain originated in 2009 in the USA, as a variant of the swine flu. In 2010, our Ministry of Health undertook to pay 184 million euros to Novartis for 24 million doses of the vaccine against “H1N1 porcine”. However, that announced “pandemic” was actually a real media hoax: in fact in Italy we vaccinated less than a million people, and 9 million doses of that vaccine remained in the refrigerators of our public health facilities.
Now, to comment on the vaccine from Israel (Netanyahu promised the vaccine a week before their recent elections) or from the USA (they also are deeply into election campaign and, if not covered by expensive private insurance, they have to pay about $ 3,000 to get tested for Covid-19… and to make matters worse, they have the highest rate of false positive results in the world).
In short: commenting on the Israel-USA vaccine promises would be like shooting on the Red Cross.

Q. The last question I ask you, doctor, is what you think of the measures taken by the Italian government to reduce the speed of contagion.

A. The great Ennio Flajano once said that in Italy “the situation is severe but not serious”. Based on all the data we have examined here, we should conclude that this time in Italy the situation is “serious but not severe”.
I mean “serious” in the sense that the measures taken by our leaders reflect their anxiety of proving they are “serious and responsible” but I ask myself: towards whom? Towards the EU? Towards NATO? Why not towards the Italian citizens? The first requirement of seriousness is consistency, and every citizen knows if he has received consistent messages from the authorities and “experts” in these 40 days. Walter Ricciardi, just hired as a special consultant to the Minister of Health in the midst of this storm, has worked wonders on both the domestic and international front. And when the storm rages, when the sails are torn and the boat is full of water, you can only shovel water and shut up. In science and conscience I believe I am shoveling water, patching up sails, and (almost) shutting up. I said almost shut up: in solidarity with Colleagues (underpaid) who work stressful shifts in hospitals devastated by thirty years of neoliberal filibustering, but also screaming loudly against self-styled “colleagues” who, in anonymity, sow terror by talking about “grandchildren who kill their grandparents by infecting them” or about “reckless people who leave home for a walk”. Other criminals pass off the XY product as a curative panacea (and above all preventive) against the “2020 plague” which is said to be “extremely contagious” and a “ruthless exterminator”…
Let me repeat: those who are in the hospital front line today are really under stress, they must be supported, and we all must take all reasonable measures to reduce the probability of contagion, but a large newspaper in my region, Veneto, today reports that we have 498 beds of intensive care, of which 67 are occupied by patients with a swab positive for Covid-19.
Coming back to the authorities: they threaten 3 months in prison if a grandmother moves to another city to look after her grandchildren who have been left without school and without babysitting (on the other side, their parents can go far away every day, and join thousands of colleagues, if that is their job: perhaps Covid19 is off limits for workers).
So, three months prison for the grandmother; have you seen any threat of sanction against those who sow panic, starting with the mainstream media?

Q. So you accuse the authorities of little consistency, if I understand correctly?

A. Of course, there is no consistency! If the authorities want citizens to behave responsibly, they themselves must be consistent. For the last 40 days I have been explaining that, compared to the real pandemics, the current outbreak looks rather like the storm that Truman Burbank had to face in the film “The Truman Show”. And I would prefer to be wrong, but I see a significant difference: our authorities are not Christof, they are not in the control room, they are in the same boat with Truman, me, you, and 60 million unfortunate fellow Italians. If it can console you, in the place of Christof I see neither European leaders nor Mr. Trump.
In the control room, since mid-January, I have seen CNN, NYT, Guardian, and all the western mainstream media. And now I see that the boomerang they threw against China is hitting back against us, all of us!

Q. Thank you for the time you have dedicated to me. I am now going for a tour of London where, until yesterday, I have managed to count only 11 masks, all on oriental faces. Otherwise I have seen many cool people, serenely sneezing and coughing in the buses and on the streets, in spite of the precautions that prompted their leaders to isolate Italy.

Meno di 1/4 furono visitate dal medico. Sono morte “con complicazioni influenzali” non meno di 18.000 persone, in prevalenza anziane.

di Patrizia Cecconi

Londra 11 marzo 2020

D. Buongiorno dottore, bentornato in Italia… dall’Austria, visto che la Tanzanìa aveva chiuso i voli con l’Italia. Se avesse tardato qualche giorno non sarebbe più entrato neanche dall’Austria! Ormai siamo qualificati come appestati e io stessa non posso tornare in Italia perché la Gran Bretagna ha chiuso i voli, sebbene abbiano anche loro il virus, ballano, si abbracciano, ti tossiscono in faccia, ma si sentono immuni, però hanno chiuso una scuola frequentata da italiani ! Passiamo all’intervista, cosa pensa della situazione che si è creata in Italia e i numerosi decessi che si sono avuti in seguito alla Covid-19?

R. Ogni anno in Italia, i morti con la comune influenza stagionale sono 20 volte di più di quelli morti ad oggi con Covid19. Perché non intasiamo le rianimazioni ogni anno? Ecco i dati del Covid-19 in Italia, aggiornati alle ore 18:00 del 10/3/2020: 8514 casi con 631 deceduti (ISS-Epicentro). Faccio notare che questo campione è estremamente selezionato perché i test sono stati fatti in prevalenza su persone malate. La maggioranza degli esperti, fra cui Ilaria Capua, ritiene che i casi asintomatici siano da 10 a 100 volte superiori. Perciò il tasso di letalità non sarebbe del 7,4%, ma almeno dieci volte inferiore.

D. Bene, può dirci qualcosa di più circa l’ultima influenza stagionale in Italia di cui si hanno i dati ufficiali?

R. Sì, sull’influenza stagionale 2017-18, risulta che 8,7 milioni di persone si rivolsero telefonicamente al medico/pediatra di famiglia per una “sindrome simil-influenzale”. Meno di 1/4 furono visitate dal medico. Sono morte “con complicazioni influenzali” non meno di 18.000 persone, in prevalenza anziane. Di quelle 18.000, solo 173 (1 su 100) morirono in un reparto di rianimazione e in tutto furono 764 i “casi gravi da influenza confermata in soggetti ricoverati in terapia intensiva”. Cioè, le altre 17.000 persone sono morte a casa propria, o in casa di riposo, o in un qualche reparto ospedaliero, senza diagnosi confermata di influenza. Se i media due anni fa avessero scatenato il putiferio attuale, non meno di 75.000 malati con influenza avrebbero intasato le rianimazioni, al ritmo di 750 nuovi ingressi ogni giorno (finora in rianimazione ne abbiamo ricoverati 650 in tutto). Questi dati confermano che siamo di fronte a una epidemia di panico e che gli untori per eccellenza sono i media.

D. Ci dicono che in Italia abbiamo il più alto tasso di letalità e questo ci sta portando ad essere considerati “gli untori” per antomasia in Europa, tanto che siamo ormai isolati e, come me,  molti altri non possono rientrare.

R. I dati più affidabili vengono dalla Corea del Sud, che registra tassi di letalità attorno al 6 per mille (1/12 dei nostri). Questo si spiega perché la Corea ha fatto test a tappeto fin dall’inizio (già più di 200.000) e conferma quanto abbiamo detto sopra, cioè che le nostre statistiche usano un denominatore (persone infettate) assai ridotto e selezionato, il che ingigantisce falsamente il rapporto morti/infettati, cioè il tasso di letalità.

D. tra i tanti messaggi che arrivano nei social, in particolare in Whatsapp che è forse il più diffuso tra i mezzi di comunicazione veloce via smartphone, arrivano appelli di medici di rianimazione veramente preoccupanti, può dirci qualcosa in proposito?

R. Il nostro Sistema Sanitario pubblico collocava l’Italia ai primi posti nel mondo, con un invidiabile rapporto qualità/costi, ma a partire dal 1992 (legge-delega per la privatizzazione del SSN) è stato smantellato per favorire le speculazioni private, che non hanno alcun interesse a investire nei settori più costosi, come grandi chirurgie e rianimazioni. Mi permetta di dire che questo fatto non sarà mai ribadito e condannato abbastanza. Però le testimonianze e gli appelli accorati da parte di medici e infermieri dei reparti di terapia intensiva, ora sotto pressione per i malati gravi con Covid19, mentre sono condivisibili sul piano umano, sono fuorvianti per la comprensione di questa “epidemia”. Sarebbe come usare la testimonianza del marinaio di una scialuppa di salvataggio del Titanic per ricostruire la storia di quel naufragio… ma qui abbiamo solo qualche scialuppa: non c’è né il Titanic né l’iceberg. Non c’è epidemia, non c’è pandemia. E abbiamo due precedenti famigerati, proprio con due varianti di coronavirus che fecero tanto scalpore per poi rivelarsi veri e propri “fuochi di paglia”: la SARS del 2002 (8000 casi in tutto) e la MERS del 2012 (800 casi). Noti che la SARS ebbe una letalità del 9% e la MERS addirittura del 38%.

Il tasso di letalità del coronavirus in Italia è almeno 10 volte inferiore ai dati ufficiali. Nuova intervista all'epidemiologo Salmaso

D. Stanno arrivando voci di vaccini “quasi” pronti da parte di Israele o degli USA che potrebbero salvare molte vite aggredite da questo virus, lei cosa ne pensa?

R. Tanto rumore per un vaccino? Nell’influenza comune del 2017-18 il ceppo prevalente era A/H1N1pdm09 (più noto come H1N1 o “suina”), ed era incluso nel vaccino antinfluenzale somministrato a circa la metà degli ultrasessantacinquenni italiani, non solo quell’anno, ma anche negli anni precedenti. Quel ceppo ebbe origine nel 2009 negli USA, come variante dell’influenza suina. Nel 2010 il nostro Ministero della Salute si impegnò a pagare 184 milioni di euro alla Novartis per 24 milioni di dosi di vaccino contro la “H1N1 suina”, ma anche quella annunciata “pandemia” in realtà fu una vera e propria bufala mediatica: di fatto furono vaccinati meno di un milione di italiani, e 9 milioni di dosi di quel vaccino rimasero nei frigoriferi delle ASL.
Parlare di Israele (Netanyahu promise il vaccino a una settimana dalle recentissime elezioni) o di USA (pure loro in campagna elettorale, coi cittadini che, se disoccupati e non coperti da assicurazione, devono pagare una somma notevole per farsi fare un tampone, e per giunta col più alto tasso di risultati falsi positivi nel mondo) data la situazione conosciuta, sarebbe come sparare sulla Croce Rossa.

D. L’ultima domanda che le faccio, dottore, è cosa pensa delle misure per ridurre il contagio prese dal governo italiano.

R. Il grande Ennio Flajano diceva che in Italia “la situazione è grave ma non seria”. Per tutti i dati che abbiamo qui esaminato, dovremmo concludere che questa volta la situazione è “seria ma non grave”. Dico “seria” nel senso che le misure adottate riflettono l’ansia di dimostrarsi “seri e responsabili” ma mi domando: verso chi? Verso la UE? Verso la NATO? Perché non verso i cittadini italiani? Il primo requisito della serietà è la coerenza, e ogni cittadino lo sa se ha ricevuto messaggi coerenti dalle autorità e dagli “esperti” in questi 40 giorni. Walter Ricciardi, imbarcato nel pieno della tempesta, ha fatto miracoli sia nel fronte interno che su quello internazionale. E quando infuria la tempesta, quando le vele sono già lacerate e la barca è piena d’acqua, puoi solo spalare acqua e stare zitto. In scienza e coscienza io credo di spalare acqua, di rattoppare almeno qualche vela, e di stare (quasi) zitto. Ho detto quasi zitto: solidale coi colleghi (anche sottopagati) che fanno turni stressanti negli ospedali devastati da trent’anni di filibustering neoliberista, ma anche urlante a squarciagola contro “colleghi” veri o sedicenti tali che, in anonimato, seminano il terrore parlando di “nipotini che uccidono i nonni”, o di “incoscienti che escono a fare una passeggiata”, o che spacciano il prodotto XY come panacea curativa (e soprattutto preventiva, così non scappa neanche un potenziale cliente fra i 60 milioni) contro la “peste del 2020” che avrebbe una “contagiosità pazzesca” e una mortalità (sarebbe troppo pretendere da loro il termine corretto letalità) “spaventosa”. Ripeto: chi sta in prima linea negli ospedali oggi è davvero sotto stress, va rispettato e sostenuto, e le misure ragionevoli per ridurre le probabilità di contagio vanno adottate, ma un grande quotidiano della mia regione, il Veneto, oggi riferisce che abbiamo 498 letti di terapia intensiva, di cui 67 occupati da pazienti con tampone positivo per Covid19.

E torniamo alle autorità: minacciano 3 mesi di galera se una nonna si sposta in un’altra città per accudire i nipotini che sono rimasti senza scuola e senza babysitter (i genitori possono andare anche in capo al mondo, in un’azienda con migliaia di dipendenti, se quello è il loro posto di lavoro e il contagio passa in secondo piano). Lei ha visto anche solo la minaccia di una sanzione qualunque contro chi semina panico, a cominciare dai media mainstream?

D. Quindi lei accusa le autorità di poca coerenza se capisco bene? 

R. Certo, manca coerenza! Per ottenere responsabilità consapevole bisogna offrire coerenza. Io, credo coerentemente, da 40 giorni sto spiegando che, se confrontata con le vere pandemie, l’attuale “tempesta” assomiglia piuttosto a quella che un certo Truman Burbank deve affrontare nel film “The Truman Show”. E vorrei tanto sbagliarmi, ma ci vedo una non trascurabile differenza: le nostre autorità non sono Christof, non stanno nella cabina di regia ma nella barca, con Truman, me, lei, e 60 milioni di sciagurati concittadini. Se può consolare, al posto di Christof non ci vedo né i politici di Bruxelles né Trump. Nella cabina di regia io, già a metà gennaio, ho visto CNN, NYT, Guardian, e tutto il codazzo mainstream.

D. La ringrazio del tempo che ci ha dedicato e vado a fare un giro per Londra dove, fino a ieri, sono riuscita a contare solo 11 mascherine e tutte su visi orientali, ma tante persone raffreddate, serenamente starnutenti e tossicchianti sui mezzi pubblici e per la strada alla faccia delle precauzioni che hanno portato le loro autorità a isolare l’Italia.

La Corte penale internazionale continua ad interferire in Libia, rigettato l’appello di Saif Al Islam Gheddafi

Il 9 marzo 2020, la Camera d’appello della Corte penale internazionale (“ICC” o “Corte”) ha confermato all’unanimità la ricevibilità della causa contro Saif Al-Islam Gheddafi dinanzi alla Corte e ha respinto il suo ricorso contro la Camera preliminare I decisione che respinge la sua contestazione sull’ammissibilità della presente causa.

La Camera di appello ha ricordato che la Corte è “complementare alle giurisdizioni penali nazionali”. Un caso è inammissibile quando una persona “è già stata processata” e nessuna persona “che è stata processata da un altro tribunale” per crimini sotto la giurisdizione della CPI deve essere processata dalla CPI in relazione allo stesso comportamento. Nel riesaminare la decisione della Camera di prova, la Camera di ricorso non ha riscontrato alcun errore e ha concordato con la sua interpretazione dello Statuto di Roma, indicando che la decisione emessa da una giurisdizione nazionale deve essere definitiva prima che un caso possa essere dichiarato irricevibile.

Dopo aver esaminato le osservazioni della Difesa, del Procuratore, delle vittime, del governo libico e di altri, la Camera di appello ha riscontrato che la Camera di prova non ha commesso errori nel concludere che la sentenza libica del 28 luglio 2015 contro Gheddafi è stata pronunciata in contumacia . Ciò è supportato anche dalle osservazioni del governo libico all’ICC. Pertanto, ai sensi della legge libica, la sentenza della Corte di Tripoli non può essere considerata definitiva. La Camera di appello ha inoltre concordato con la decisione della Camera di prova I che la legge libica n. 6 (2015) in materia di amnistia non è applicabile ai crimini per i quali il sig. Gheddafi è stato condannato dal tribunale di Tripoli. Di conseguenza, la Camera d’appello respinge l’appello di Gheddafi.

La Camera d’appello è composta dai giudici Cile Eboe-Osuji, Presidenti, Howard Morrison, Piotr Hofmański, Luz del Carmen Ibáñez Carranza e Solomy Balungi Bossa. Il giudice Eboe-Osuji e il giudice Bossa accolgono congiuntamente un’opinione separata. Il giudice Ibáñez Carranza, a tempo debito, presenterà un’opinione separata a questa sentenza, relativa alla questione delle amnistie e del diritto internazionale.

La Difesa di Gheddafi e il Consiglio Supremo delle Città e Tribù libiche, avevano precedentemente esortato la Corte a tornare ai principi fondanti della complementarità e a consentire agli Stati “il primato sui crimini insorti nella loro giurisdizione, chiedendo di non interferire con i processi interni fintanto che lo Stato interessato ha indagato, perseguito o ha processato il caso”. A tale proposito, hanno sostenuto che non è compito della Corte penale internazionale “sedersi in giudizio” davanti al tribunale nazionale, in quanto la Corte penale internazionale non è la Corte suprema della Libia. Continuando, hanno sostenuto che “qualsiasi interpretazione del regime di complementarità che impone a questa Corte di approfondire troppo la legge libica potrebbe forse vanificare lo scopo “in particolare perché un simile approccio costituirebbe un’intrusione indebita sulla” sovranità nazionale”.

Lo sceicco e dignitario Ali Abu Sbeha, capo del Consiglio delle Tribù del Fezzan, e la presidenza del Consiglio Supremo delle Tribù e delle Città libiche hanno dichiarato che “la decisione della Corte penale internazionale costituisce una violazione della sovranità libica perché la magistratura libica ha emesso una sentenza in materia, e Saif al-Islam è coperto dalla legge generale sull’amnistia”. Abu Sbeha ha espresso la sua netta condanna per la posizione del Governo di Accordo Nazionale (GNA) al riguardo, affermando che questo dovrebbe lavorare per riunire il popolo libico, in particolare considerando che Saif Al-Islam è estremamente popolare in Libia, chiedendo di superare le questioni in sospeso dal 2011 ed attivarsi per una reale riconciliazione nazionale che non può essere ostruita da organismi internazionali.

L’anziano ritiene che la posizione del Governo che oggi controlla solo parti di Tripoli e Misurata, lo rende ancora una volta un avversario del popolo libico, specialmente da quando il ministro della Giustizia dello stesso Governo aveva prosciolto da ogni accusa il figlio del rais.

Coronavirus was created by the USA to sink China, Italy is place to a social experiment.

The system has been making us stupid with Coronavirus for a long time, they talk to you about various stupid things, bats, snakes, created in China, etc …

but someone does not believe it: with documents in hand he gives evidence that the Coronavirus was created by the USA to destroy China.

Why years ago even literature and cinema produced novels and films in which there was talk of a pandemic that started right from China?

Why official NATO documents identify China as the enemy of the future?

Why in the same documents we talk about innovative weapons, selective viruses, capable of infecting some populations and others not?

Why do we speak openly of studying the effects not of the epidemic but of studying the “social” effects on the population? That is, how does the population react to prohibitions, limitations, deprivation of freedom?

Why did Attali, a well-known “benefactor”, openly say that there is a need for a small global epidemic to create a global world government?
