Does Islamic State truly have a political agenda and aspirations or are they really beyond that and just seeking power through terror?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

Nothing is constant and never is that more true than when discussing a force in a reaction. ISIS were always going to be and the West ensured that ISIS would evolve from dissatisfaction, frustration, anger and humiliation.

We propped up Governments who we knew would pursue our interests and their own – but never the people’s. ISIS are now in a state of flux, regrouping and ensuring they engage with those who do not want a Taliban Government in Afghanistan and a Western-backed form of democracy in Yemen, Libya, Syria and Iraq.

The Middle East has become a proxy for whoever can supply and arm it. President Trump is right to want to walk away from it all. If I were in Government I would say ‘I’m off call me back when you have Peace’.

Our dependence on Oil is decreasing so why should we be at the beck and call of a region that needs to find its own future rather than one we say it should have.

I want Peace for the Middle East but sometimes you have to walk away and let the ‘water find its own level’. The killing of innocent civilians has to stop – but how to do that?

ISIS is not one person. It has moderates as well as extremists. However, unless we bring Peace to Afghanistan we face the risk of a ‘Terrorist Superpower’. If Al Qaeda, ISIS, the Taliban and Al Shabaab combine into a Military Force and not as disconnected terrorist organisations then we will face a new war in the Middle East. Afghanistan and Pakistan could end up as the latest Proxy War with China and Russia supporting whoever the U.S and West does not.

Therefore, we first need to stabilize Afghanistan and that means the US and the Taliban siting down and butting heads. The Taliban do not want ISIS in Afghanistan. They are fighting for their Country – ISIS were not invited.

ISIS has a Leader who will not turn back from the road he has taken. ISIS will continue to act as dragnet for anybody who has a grudge and a fanaticism. The terrorism will get worse a lot worse as other factors such as Climate Change refugees and a hardening of Western attitudes towards refugees and Aid cause more poverty and more isolation for those who have no Government to help them.

There are 65 million refugees and it is increasing. In that 65 million are those who ISIS will recruit for suicide bombing.

We must isolate ISIS. To do that we need a ‘united’ United Nations Security Council. Nobody is going to say you are in Cloud Cuckoo Land if you summarise that Russia and China are not ‘sympathetic’ to the needs of ISIS. Until the U.S, China and Russia are all on the same page for World Peace ISIS will continue to exist.

Will ISIS become political? It already has. It uses its version of the Quran as a Mandate voted in by the People who support ISIS to carry out as much carnage as possible to innocent people in the hope that they can enlarge their footprint.

I have warned the U.S and the U.K of the dangers of not being able to combat the ISIS Ideology. In particular I have advised Prime Minster May of the dangers of not supporting ‘New Philosophy ’ but Prime Minister May is as deaf to ‘New forms of Counter Terrorism’ as she is to any new idea not from her Ivory Tower of Political Isolationism.

Where the danger lies is in the evolvement of a Political Group who combine all the Terrorist Groups ideologues into a form of Political Philosophy to be used by the disaffected leading to internal unrest and uprisings in many countries – that will happen unless the West stops acting the hypocrite. The West must act as the International Convention of Human Rights demands. This must include a reformed militarised United Nations backed by every member of an enlarged Security Council to bring Peace to the many conflicts in the World.

ISIS are but a seed of disaffection and extremism. ISIS will continue to grow unless we deal with why it exists.

After almost two decades of war, is Afghanistan better or worse?

HRUK12

This is my answer to the Q on Quora.

With over one million Afghanistan men women and children killed by the conflict which began in 1979 and has never ended it is the unmistakable conclusion that we owe the people of Afghanistan a Peace.

There are no ifs and buts. America, Russia, China and Pakistan have proven themselves chillingly unwilling to provide the forum and the system to ensure that Peace and the fight against terrorism can co-exist.

It is no good ignoring the Taliban. They are part of the history and are part of the future of Afghanistan.

ISIS are not – they are unwanted guest of both the people of Afghanistan and the Taliban. ISIS cannot continue roam the Middle East trying to find a people onto which to force its mistaken culture of God.

If ISIS want an Islamic State they they should form one with the people not against the will of the people.

However, if America does not peruse a dialogue of co-operation with the Taliban then the result will be an ISIS, Taliban and Al Qaeda trifecta of insurgency which could result in a Terrorist Superpower.

Peace in Afghanistan is long overdue for the People who have endured the longest conflict in modern times.

Are they better off? No.

Are we just a material?

truth

This is my answer to the Question which was on Quora.

The Human Condition is evolving into something less than Human. In fact many are already at the point where it can be said that they are just a material.

Many people, particularly in the Western World, have accepted a way of interaction that has isolated them from the interaction of the human condition with those who are less fortunate.

Many are willing to accept a conditioned mediocre society as long as they are kept safe by whoever imposes conditions on their behavior and hence they become material.

However, by doing so they lose their freedom of expression and their ability to fight for the freedom of others. Life becomes ‘self-satisfied’ and a constant search for the next ‘experience high’.

Our Governments and Establishments have failed to progress Society and develop its Humanity so instead they seek to contain and control us in order to ensure our behaviour is predictable and manageable – this way they hope to contain crime and terrorism.

They ignore the root cause of crime and terrorism which is their failure to ensure fairness in mankind’s progression and instead seek to micro-manage the whole of their Societies.

We are at the end of ‘freedom of expression’. Our Governments will have to become more decronian and more controlling of our rights if Society is to continue to remain manageable.

To do that they need the ‘material condition’. The other developer of the ‘material condition’ is AI and its derivatives. This is a real threat to our Philosophical Freedom and has already been embraced by our Governments. AI can never produce Philosophy as it incapable of free thought. It is Philosophy that develops humanity and produces the actions for mankind that progress the ‘human condition’ ie civilization.

To confront a Government with your own ideas is now almost as if you are going to war with them. They simply no longer listen. They fear ideas other than their own because they do want a new Philosophy which may displace their own ideologies.

The material condition is encouraged and fostered to ensure that Citizens are too afraid to seek other than their own material satisfaction.

The United Kingdom and Theresa May are the leading examples in the Western World of how the ‘material society’ is progressing. May is at the forefront of imposing new controls on the Internet that will only seek to increase the divide between the State and its People.

The acceptance of the failure of our Governments to manage our Economies fairly is at the root cause of the emergence of the ‘material condition’.

Terrorism and Crime thrive on Economic Mismanagement which is a symptom of modern Governments inability to accept new ideas – the vicious circle of the Ivory Tower.

Hence the ‘Protection of the Material’ and its embryonic human condition ‘the need to be selfish’ so that there is no need to concern yourself with the actions of your Governments on Human Rights.

Will there ever be peace in the Muslim world?

truth

This is my answer to this Q on Quora.

There will never be Peace in the Muslim World until all Muslims accept that God is not their property.

God represents the freedom we all seek but have been unable to achieve.

Our inability to understand that the ‘Word of God’ is not a set of instructions on how to live every minute of our lives but a Philosophy which was intended by God and his followers that mankind should adopt and develop has created conflict.

The Quran and the Bible are both of no use other than to promote conflict and prejudice unless we develop the Philosophy contained within them into a democracy of thought and an understanding of each other.

Unfortunately, our Leaders both in Goverment and of the Faiths have used ‘religion’ to promote themselves and to separate their own ideologies from each other.

In doing so they have created division and disunity amongst peoples.

There is only one God and until the people of Islam work together there can be no Peace. They have allowed their historic differences to be used by those who seek to subjugate them for their own interests. ISIS has been particularly expert at developing the ‘New Quran’.

I have tirelessly attempted to explain by my writing to Theresa May that terrorism can never be defeated by force alone.

However, May is so unable to understand that the only group developing the ‘Word of God’ is ISIS. My own development of a new Perspective of the ‘World of God’ is ignored by both May and the U.K’s security services – with tragic results. The U.K establishment is unable to accept that the ‘Ivory Tower’ they reside in is more dangerous than ISIS. It promotes radicalism in answer to the division that it causes by being so publicly decisive.

ISIS have rewritten the Quran as the Word of God and ISIS. Whereas I have been writing of the ‘World of God and all his Peoples’. A vital point missed by Theresa May and MI5. Nobody reading my work will get into a truck and drive into innocent bystanders as they do with ISIS writing.

What would God do and say is a Question each Muslim should ask when he or she is asked to use their faith against another.

Muslims will need to unite as one in the ‘World of God’ if there is ever to be Peace.

As of today, has ISIS been defeated?

cropped-facebook-2.jpg

This is my answer to this Question on Quora.

Unfortunately not. Nobody from ISIS signed a surrender document. ISIS’s military capability as an invading force may have been reduced but now the terrorist attacks will intensify.

The West and in particular the U.K is now at an even greater risk of terrorist attacks than when ISIS was a capable Military Invading Force.

Without the use of hard borders the European Union continues to put its citizens at risk from a new reformed ISIS.

Further destabilisation is now more certain in Northern Africa, Asia and Northern Afghanistan.

ISIS is not Al Qaeda. Their roots come from very different forms of the use of the Quran and they have both different paths to what it is they want.

ISIS is secure in the knowledge that it acts for God. ISIS continues to rewrite the Quran with no alternative available for those who seek God as a shelter for their discontent and anger with the ‘Evil of the West’. Which is why Theresa May and the U.K Security Services have put Citizens at risk by ignoring my ‘New Perspective’ of the Word of God.

The Taliban would be the West’s best hope of an eventual defeat of ISIS but the U.S in the absence of a reformed United Nations is going it alone in Afghanistan.

A proxy war in Afghanistan between Russia and the U.S looms ever closer with Russia and China both funding the Taliban.

ISIS is a cause with its own martyrs. It will now be recruiting a whole new group of supporters from within Europe, Asia, Northern Africa and the U.S. with its own page in history as its beacon.

Given time ISIS will be even more militarily capable than it was in Iraq and Syria.

If we are to defeat ISIS than Russia, China and the U.S must be on the same page in Afghanistan.

Why does everyone underestimate the Taliban?

My answer to this Question on Quora

I do not underestimate the Taliban. A 16 year old boy who watched as the Russians invaded his homeland of Afghanistan in 1979 and who fought the Russians and then the American and the British as well the troops from many countries of the World is now 54. He is of the most experienced and battle hardened warriors in the World.

When a young Marine is on duty in Afghanistan he is facing an enemy with a cause, a history and a future. What is the young Marine going to die for?

I have total respect for the American Soldier who is prepared to die to stop the spread of terrorism. But it is not right that America alone should be prepared to do what many other countries do not do in order to stop a rising terror.

The Taliban and ISIS are not the same. One is a cause for a homeland the other is a ideology for a purpose that has no place in Afghanistan or anywhere else in the World. Yes the West has often used its military might for strategic vested interest rather than regional stability and ISIS was born out of a flawed American Foreign Policy but terrorism must be stopped.

The U.S will not defeat terrorism by fighting the Taliban. A dialogue must begin that will ensure the Taliban denounce terrorism and America stops bombing innocent Afghanistan civilians.

Will a Developed Brain 2 Computer Technology become the New World Order?

 


1998HumanRightsAct


Q. Why have I written this?

A. Because I care about our World and the National and Global Security that is needed to ensure that mankind has a future. I perceive the somewhat ‘strange’ attitude of the United States and U.K Security Organisations such as NATO and the CIA/MI5/6 to the ‘Runaway Effect’ of Brain 2 Computer Technology to be a liability to both National and Global Security. I can find no logical reason to explain their lack of understanding of what will if not controlled become a threat to Global Security other than they have been ordered to ignore its development – which in itself a contravention of their own Statutory Requirements to safeguard National Security.

Runaway Effect. An inbuilt organic exponential growth which accelerates as it extrapolates to the point where it becomes a critical mass whose growth cannot be that of a controlled technology but that of an uncontrollable virus.


Brain to Computer Communication is a fact. It is not Science Fiction. We can no longer consign it to the realm of ‘tin hats’ and ‘fanciful imagination’. Research into deciphering the electrical impulses from the mind began in 1875 by Richard Caton who was a British physician. Canton was crucial in discovering the electrical nature of the brain and laid the groundwork for Hans Berger to discover Alpha wave activity in the human brain.


Hitler and the Nazis also carried out the same research. At the end of WW2 1600 Nazi Scientists involved in weapons and associated research went to America with Operation PaperClip . Some were involved in mind research.


Operation Mk Ultra was the CIA’s Public incursion into Brain to Computer Research. The operation began in the early 1950s, was officially sanctioned in 1953, was reduced in scope in 1964, further curtailed in 1967, and officially halted in 1973.

 

page1-220px-ProjectMKULTRA_Senate_Report.pdf


In July 2017  the U.S.A. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA awarded $65 million to develop the perfect, tiny two-way brain-computer interface. That is of course what we are told. No doubt the reality is that in 1875 Governments and Military learned of the possibility of being able to read and control the mind. It is highly likely that Governments and other interested parties have been investing in Brain 2 Computer Research from as far back as the early 1900’s. DARPA Brain Initiative is contracted out to the Private Sector. What are the safeguards in place to ensure a hostile agency, Country or Group have access?


 

Q. How far advanced is Brain 2 Computer Technology?

A. Nobody knows and that is why the CIA and other Nation’s Security Services must conduct an urgent audit of its progress. Brain 2 Computer Technology has the potential to be more dangerous than nuclear weapons. Why? Because it can be used to control nuclear weapons systems.


In the Research Laboratory the Technology may be hardwired. However, in the real world of Technology Criminal Exploitation a Developed B2C Technology could be  transmitted with an implant that was fitted to a U.S.A.F Fighter Pilot when he was asleep, in a hospital on a operating theatre, when he was in a crowd, when he put his clothing on or when his wife could fit it whilst he slept.  The implants are so small that they can barely be seen by the naked eye. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to come to the conclusion that at some point in time the B2C Technology will become organic and children will be born with it. All wired up, ready to be used and controlled.


Recently Elon Musk has invested in NeuraLink to also develop Brain 2 Computer Technology. My concern is that as we have not fully developed the Brain’s Capability all his research will do is prevent the natural development of the mind and increase the security risk of Brain 2 Computer Technology. Once a person is implanted with a connection that connection can then be accessed by anybody including those who may not operate in the best interests of National and Business Security. AI is not capable of original thought and never will be. AI will never be able to produce a new idea. Only the Human Brain has imagination.


The National Security Agency website states ‘Defending our Nation. Securing the Future.’ Really NSA ? Type in the words ‘ Dangers of Computer to Brain Technology’ into the NSA website search engine. What do you get – nothing. No warnings, no discussion not even a mention that somebody in your next business meeting could be ‘connected’ or your next Navy Seals Operation could be Wi-Fi’d to the enemy.


Q. How many People since 1875 to present day (2017) did not and have not survived  Research into Brain 2 Computer Technology?


Q. What has happened to all  those who have been experimented on?


Q. Is it possible to encrypt the information flow from the mind and ensure it is not  accessed by those who are not acting in the best interests of National and/or Global Security?

A. No it is not.


Q. Is Brain 2 Computer Technology a massive research program being undertaken by many Governments all over the World and which has no safeguards?


That is the problem. Our ‘intellectually challenged’ Governments do not appear to understand the ‘nightmare’ of what they developing and spending $millions and $millions on. The nightmare of Brain to Computer Technology is that is able to be used by anybody with a computer and the software for receiving and transmitting information from the Brain – and for many in our morally deficient world everything has a Price and many including ISIS and Al Qaeda as well as Criminals will pay it.


When the Commander of a United States Navy of the Ohio Class fitted with active strategic thermonuclear warheads next goes to the dentist and is put under could somebody insert a computer to brain implant into him? He would never know. Would an Intel Handler at R.A.F Northwood, Pine Gap in Australia, The Pentagon or GCHQ know? Were Intel handlers at any of these Security Installations checked for a developed Computer 2 Brain Technology in the last 24 hours, 48 hours, last week, last month, last year? Ever? Is there a Research Group carrying out Brain 2 Computer Technology Development who has access to Security Facilities?


The Brain 2 Computer Technology cannot and must not be allowed to be developed ad-hoc. Governments must ensure they know who is developing it and where and at what stage the development is at.

Personally I believe it all to be a waste of time and money. It has no benefit to mankind. Its only use is control and intrusion. But regardless of my opinion as to its real benefits to the progress of mankind the Security Implications are not merely an opinion. They are dangerously very real.

Brain 2 Computer Technology transmits visual, audio and mind information in binary form it can be accessed by anybody before it gets to the receiver . A bit like Wi-Fi is hacked into. Who has it fitted. Do you?

Experts-warn-growing-threat-monitoring-controlling-neural-signals.html


Warning: My urgent and immediate advice to those in Government, the Senior Military and the CIA/MI5/6 is to immediately audit and verify all research and all personnel in all fields of the Sciences and Behavioural Research who are or may be involved in Brain 2 Computer Research. This is necessary in order to account for the propagation and development of brain to computer technology. I believe this to be of the highest priority in order to maintain National & Global Security of those Nations with have nuclear and chemical weapons.


This is the summary of concerns listed in Wikipedia of Brain to Computer Interface.

Ethical considerations
Important ethical, legal and societal issues related to brain-computer interfacing are:
Obtaining informed consent from people who have difficulty communicating,
risk/benefit analysis.
Shared responsibility of BCI teams (e.g. how to ensure that responsible group decisions can be made).
The consequences of BCI technology for the quality of life of patients and their families.
Side-effects (e.g. neurofeedback of sensorimotor rhythm training is reported to affect sleep quality).
Personal responsibility and its possible constraints (e.g. who is responsible for erroneous actions with a neuroprosthesis).
Issues concerning personality and personhood and its possible alteration.
blurring of the division between human and machine.
Therapeutic applications and their possible exceedance.
questions of research ethics that arise when progressing from animal experimentation to application in human subjects.
Selective enhancement and social stratification.


These are my own concerns:

Mind-reading and privacy in Government, Business, Banking and Military.
Mind-control by allowing Terror Groups or Criminal Groups to Control and Direct.
Use of the technology in advanced interrogation techniques by governmental authorities,
Control of all Communication to and from the media.
Memory Loss and the development of only ‘controlled memory’ as the end of Free Thought.
Organic Development by insertion of bio engineered control system to allow complete control of brain electron circuits.
A new form of human physics which transforms mind motor neuron control to manmade body components whilst retaining the human form for structure.
Replacement of key individuals in Government and Military with Human Robot Controlled Humanoids.
The Eventual Replacement of Mankind as ‘Free Thought’ in order to save it from its own destruction by a Power Elite who seek their own Survival and Destiny through Total Control.
Total Power controls absolutely and must control all that is capable of Free Thought if it is to survive.


 

Summary.

Time and events will prove if my warning was right or wrong. However, can we as People allow a Brain 2 Technology be developed which ‘Creates mankind in the image of whoever controls the Technology’? I describe Brain 2 Computer Technology as a virus. Its rate of development is now exponential, it’s fitting to minds is unrestricted, its potential for control by a Group or Power who do not want democracy is only restricted by the amount they want to pay for its developed use. The danger of Brain to Computer Technology to the future of mankind can be measured in the megatons of TNT per metric ton of nuclear weapons.

What should be our greatest concern is that our Governments and their Security Agencies seem to be unaware of the dangers of a rapidly developing technology which has the real potential to access any mind anywhere at anytime. From the Nuclear Command systems of a submarine with nuclear weapons to the cockpit of a B52 Bomber armed with nuclear weapons Brain 2 Computer Technology has the potential to access every mind everywhere.

Does anybody care?
