Mahdi Nazemroaya on Wikileaks Saudi cables.
Petro-dollar bribery, smear campaigns, purchasing journalists and media outlets - it's all part and parcel of daily Saudi "diplomacy."
Investigative journalist Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya trawls through the Wikileaks cables and the staggering (but entirely unsurprising) revelations within.
They confirm what we already know: Saudis are destabilizing Iraq, highly active in Syria, and bribing their way into legitimacy worldwide.
Saudi Arabia pours so much money into Western journalism that there must be a reluctance to disrupt this cash flow by printing stories critical of the Gulf monarchy.
Nazemroaya also discusses Saudi horse trading with countries such as Australia and Russia.
But who released the cables? Was the Yemen Cyber Army capable or interested in doing so? Why so few releases about Syria?

Using ISIL as a Cover to Attack Syrian State. Justice Belied: The Unbalanced Scales of International Criminal Justice
Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, David Jacobs
US/allies' terrorism represents a continuity of imperialist government's hypocritical policies and practices. Bombing infrastructure to economically impair a country, bombing civilian homes to destroy dissent and unity. All this, while claiming humanitarian intervention.
ISIL is the cover to attack Syria. Ultimate target is Iran.
Phil Taylor and David Jacobs, both contributors to the new book, "Justice Belied: The Unbalanced Scales of International Criminal Justice", discuss the late Professor Michael Mandel’s thesis that the peace-promoting international law regime under the United Nations Charter has been undermined by the international criminal law movement.
Michael Mandel, law professor and Renaissance man, wrote pioneering analyses concluding that the international criminal law movement did more to promote war than it did to promote peace and justice. The movement negated the UN Charter’s pledge to end the scourge of war.
The International Criminal Court and the ad hoc international criminal tribunals end up justifying war by criminalizing the losers or regimes out of favour with the West.

Developments in Syria and Turkey: Israeli involvement; Lebanon as a beach-head against Syria. Joel Richardson on the power of images
Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Joel Richardson
We are once again being let down wall-to-wall by corporate media. Events in Syria are coming to a turn. Russia and the United States are having a meeting, after delaying attempts by France.
But just what kind of war is being fought? The Toronto Star quoted an Imam from Qatar - his language was utterly inflammatory and sectarian. Mahdi Nazemroaya has the answers, including Israel's involvement. Israel is using Lebanon to attack Syria.
In Turkey, Erdogan's attempt to gain popularity through fake support for the Palestinian cause is wearing thin. His 'neo-Ottoman' policy was always the subordination of Islam to capitalism. Erdogan's covert war on Syria has destroyed Turkish trade with the Arab world.
Joel Richardson is a Toronto artist and muralist - if you pass through Toronto's underpasses on the West end of the city, you often find Richardson's murals.
Phil asks him to identify his murals. Richardson plans to set a world record on the number of people engaged in wearing suits and meditating simultaneously in an attempt to reverse policy on development.
He also describes his involvement in the Occupy Movement in liberating the wall of the J.P. Morgan building.
