The US Uses FIFA to Ostracize Russia: Updated!

Come one! Did anyone seriously think the US is concerned with corruption? If they really were, they would have addressed the fact there are a bunch of big banks that are rampantly corrupt!

Quoting  excerpts from the "Daily Beast" a site that should be used judiciously
It's always heavy on perception management. I mean look at the image used!
Blatant enough?
perception management imagery

I'll just post relevant information.
On a strange issue uniting foreign affairs and sports, Republicans and Democrats have come together to attempt a major league task: Persuading the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) to deprive Russia of its hosting duties vis-a-vis the next World Cup.
Repubs and Democrats are never really oppositional when it truly matters- And war making/profiteering is always a unifier!
In a letter earlier last month, Senators Menendez, Johnson, Durbin, Perdue, Shaheen, Cornyn, McCaskill, McCain, Graham, Risch, Toomey, Rubio and Kirk urged FIFA President Josef “Sepp” Blatter to “convene an Extraordinary Congress of FIFA to consider stripping Russia of the privilege of hosting the 2018 FIFA World Cup.”
 The letter highlights Russian action in relation to Ukraine as the reason to strip Russia of its role. “Allowing Russia to host the FIFA World Cup inappropriately bolsters the prestige of the Putin regime at a time when it should be condemned and provides economic relief at a time when much of the international community is imposing economic sanctions,” it argues.
blah, blah, blah- It's appalling to me that the American Senators, who must be so disconnected from reality, can seriously write such a letter, considering the US's aggressive global death/war machine.
 Long-time FIFA observers are, to put it mildly, skeptical about the ability of anyone outside FIFA—other than World Cup sponsors—to really influence Blatter or his organization’s decision-making
 Ironically, getting the 2018 World Cup out of Russia could be easier. It’s doubtful that pressure from American politicians will provoke a change of view from Blatter—indeed, on April 20th, he tweeted “Just met President Putin. I believe the 2018 #WorldCup will help to build bridges”
 So, if a letter wasn't going to get it done. Corruption charges might just encourage FIFA to see it the US way.
Putin suggests US meddling: 
 Putin said in televised comments Thursday that he found it "odd" that the FIFA probe was launched at the request of U.S. officials for crimes which do not involve its citizens and did not happen in the United States.
 Corruption charges in the U.S. were announced Wednesday against 14 people
“It looks very strange, the arrests are carried out on the request of the USA side,” he said. “They are accused of corruption – who is? International officials. I suppose that someone broke some rules, I don’t know. But definitely, it’s got nothing to do with the USA. Those officials are not US citizens. If something happened it was not in the US and it’s nothing to do with them.
“It’s another clear attempt by the USA to spread its jurisdiction to other states. And I have no doubt – it’s a clear attempt not to allow Mr Blatter to be re-elected as president of Fifa, which is a great violation of the operating principles of international organisations. The US prosecutor, as our media report, has already said that those Fifa officials have committed a crime. As if the prosecutor didn’t know about the principle of the presumption of innocence.”
“Unfortunately, our American partners use such methods to achieve their selfish aims and illegally persecute people. I do not rule out that in the case of Fifa, it’s exactly the same,” Putin said.
Russia won the rights to stage the 2018 World Cup under Blatter’s auspices. That 2010 decision, along with the award to Qatar of the 2022 tournament, is the subject of a Swiss criminal investigation running parallel to the US action.

GreenCrow talks Russia and Israel too:  UPDATED: 2018 World Soccer Cup in Russia?
Killing more then one bird with a single stone

UPDATE Begins!
Blatter must go for good of FIFA

 UEFA president Michel Platini delivered one of his most emotional and animated performances since his playing days when he said it was time for Sepp Blatter to quit as president of FIFA with world soccer's body facing yet another corruption crisis.
He said that he hoped that 45 or 46 of Europe's eligible 53 voting nations would vote for Jordan's Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein in Friday's presidential election against Blatter who is standing for a fifth term as president.
Those votes would not be enough to topple Blatter but would send a strong signal of disapproval.

Clearly the US charges have had an effect


  1. And we do know the Jordanian will assume the position... er job.... as he kisses the bottom of Israel..... Israel has been causing problems in soccer internationally for a few years.

    Does it get its wrist slapped? No... everyone else does! Soccer shirts... uniforms... yada yada yada.

    Soccer is huge in Israel. Huge. This is an aspect of BDS that would drive them mad. Imagine if the world boycotted Canada over hockey... or the US over baseball. Except.... Israel has been totally obnoxious and is Definitely doing its best to wipe out the Palestinian soccer competition. They have bragged about destroying the soccer fields of Gaza and... come on. Eleven bullets in the feet of two soccer players after they have been ripped up by guard dogs? Uhm... yes. FIFA should not be bowing down...

    Once again, Jews have sullied. They sullied baseball and still brag about that incident a hundred years ago as something funny. Now they sully "the beautiful game".

    Par for the course. Noahide laws must apply in sports as well.

    1. Israel actually plays as part of UEFA - they're considered a European nation for the purpose of international football

    2. How is it that Israel is part of the EU for soccer?
      Are the other middle eastern nations classed as such too?

    3. thanks for the comment Noor! :)

  2. 1989 : USA invades Panama
    1994 : USA hosts the FIFA world cup

    dum de dum de dum.....

    Great documentary here - The Panama Deception

    1. thanks majestika
      I didn't realize the timing on the invasion of Panama and the USA hosting FIFA, wow, hypocrisy extraordinaire!

  3. PENNY.... The ISIS rebels have conquered province Idlib, Latakia comes afterwards and then Tartus the Russian naval base!!

    1. I have been paying attention still to Syria, believe me, I have.
      I just don't know what to say anymore about the situation there- It breaks my heart so badly because I have written about Syria, from the moment I caught wind of a destabilization beginning- And I saw the news today regarding Idlib.

      The Syrian people have been the bravest people I have written about to date and the destruction of their nation and the trauma they have been put through for an agenda that has nothing to do with them,doesn't benefit them, causes them great harm sickens me

    2. No, that isn't the case. The Palmyra attack was very well executed, presumably with the real-time satellite stuff and American commanders, but it is still a case of insurgents moving quickly to attack something and being willing to back off to hit something else. The Syrian army doesn't have the luxury to protect the Eastern part of the country at the moment, but that still isn't a reason to fall for the last PR/psyops campaign by the usual suspects. When Syria wins 9 out of ten battles, who says anything?

      What is true is that some of ISIS is experienced and capable, so totally different from the vandals that have mostly been used. This is going to make it much harder to get rid of those particular forces. However, there seem to be a lot of different ISISs so even they are beatable. The Syrian command has not been really prepared for that.


    3. Hi willie

      "No, that isn't the case." Not sure what you mean?
      Do you mean it isn't as bad as the media is reporting?
      I don't know that it ever is? Until it's over that is.

      Clearly Palmyra was well executed AND was timed to coincide with the taking of Ramadi

      The Syrian army has to be stretched thin, this has been going on for more then 4 years- I saw a map though that tells me the army is maintaining a strategic slice in the east, I wonder if they are holding onto that for a future push?

      I don't think there are 'different' ISIS so much as there are fighters of different capabilities under the NATO/ISIS/Israel umbrella

      There will always be the useful idiots- the cannon fodder
      That's no different in any military. AT least I don't see it as any different
      It''s the hierarchical structure/nature of the military hive mindset

      Thanks for the update and comment Willie, I appreciate it greatly :)
      I still do read at Syper's, no commenting though
      despite what the trolls say, Ziad has been quite accurate in his reporting
      I had something saved regarding Syria, but, didn't get it up. trying to get the garden in and the weather isn't cooperating as we drop in temps well, well below normal- sigh

  4. I remember this malarkey. When the Anglo Press was throwing tantrums over world cups and olympics in the BRICS countries. FIFA harbours the same type of corruption as any capitalistic sports industry, no more, no less. But the actual sport, and teams representing competing countries getting together, are fairly wholesome. Even the bloody mascots, intended to be also wholesome brand icons symbolic of host countries' cultures, were politicised. Zabivaka was put into so much porn to "score points" against Putin, I kid you not.
