To the Editor of OEN: article is more than thousand words beyond limit, however the whole purpose of the chronology would be defeated if cut in half. Perhaps the importance of life could allow an exception. jj

After the fireworks on the first day of the Fourth of July US Independence weekend holiday may some of my countrymen and women consider dedicating themselves to some fireworks of their own, namely:
freeing America from the deception, egoism, ignorance and violence that is seeded and psyoped into the minds of children justifying the killing of the poor in their very own beloved countries overseas as merely killing bad guys for the good of everyone;
joining former Attorney General Ramsey Clark in calling for prosecution of citizens responsible and participating in the now fully documented US-NATO's sixty-five years of crimes against humanity; [1]
calling for court mandated compensation and reparations for the millions of US-NATO's victims.
These three dedications represent the American values your author was taught at his father's knee, in school and in church. In addition:
break the forty-five year old criminal mainstream media black-out of Martin Luther King's condemnation of US atrocity wars and covert violence on three continents to maintain unjust predatory investments. [2]

A 4th of July remembrance and re-dedication appropriate to one's own humanity would be for Americans to awake themselves from the farcical but deadly and insidious false propaganda from the financial-industrial-military-complex that owns the mainstream media and most other sources of information.

For having been born only eighty-three years ago, your author missed out on the first one hundred and fifty-five years of genocide by, or overseen by, the governments of my then not quite yet adolescent country. But, from 1931 on, I was present and within the rather desperate and violent but exciting US social atmosphere - great comedians, thrilling advertisements, jazz music, and exciting sports both as player an spectator enjoyed. And, since 1953 (or over the last sixty years), music has taken me to perform and live in some sixty-seven nations, nations nearly all either bombed or invaded by my USA, or nations that were US allies during its many invasions.

Through travel and living in nations descended from ancient wealthy cultures and early civilization, I have come to realize that my USA and its governments have always been captive to what the last aristocratic insider US president, Franklin Roosevelt, called "a financial element in the centers of power" [3] and without much of a heritage of a culture or a civilization of its own to guide it and protect it from being ruled crassly, despotically by its powerful, and by tradition, life-disrespecting and unscrupulous wealthy.

This chronicle of criminally genocidal behavior of the government of the USA begins at its creation in 1776. For spanning only two hundred and thirty-seven years, this list of genocide [4] throughout US history is rather short as compared with that of other nations-made-empires founded by rough and tough Europeans over the last five centuries at the expense of all the more wealthier, advanced and graceful civilizations and cultures of Africa, Asia and America which they plundered and plunder even today.

From dates after 1953, in brackets, are noted personal experiences on five continents that have colored my life so as to see the US flag as drenched in blood and hear the war-hailing national anthem as frightening (and a poor choice of music and lyrics, one might say, because the song 'America,' especially as sung by Ray Charles, as the national anthem I sure it will one day be, would, and will, inspire feelings of warmth, beauty and peace rather than the feeling of pride in arms that the Star Spangled Banner is meant to awaken.

GENOCIDE [4] MY COUNTRY, AS A NATION, OR ITS GOVERNMENT, HAS COMMITTED, CAUSED OR FACILITATED from 1976 through 2014, the many good, some even great, Americans notwithstanding.

[5]

Even before this offensive out of Syria, Iraqis were dying from terror bombings at a rate of one thousand a month.

(It was the Soviet Union that established a Ukraine Socialist Republic, eventually redistricting parts of nearby Russia into the Soviet Socialist Republic of the Ukraine.) The US and NATO have been encouraging and assisting the killing of separatist Russians, who do not accept a fascist putch in Kiev, their Russian language and culture attacked and forbidden, and being stuck in a Ukraine which has applied for membership in an anti-Russian NATO military organization with genocidal history as US ally. These Russians living in their Russian speaking cities and towns are ominously being referred to as terrorists portending more US-NATO backed genocide under the umbrella of the so called 'War on Terror.'

-WORLDWIDE 1945-2014: Genocidal economic exploitation. Nobel Laureate in Economics Joe Stiglitz: "My years at the World Bank saw policies that were genocidal." The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is mandated to oversee the international monetary and financial system and monitor the economic and financial policies of its 188 member countries. This activity is known as surveillance that facilitates international co-operation. Since the demise of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates in the early 1970s, the responsibilities of the Fund changed from those of guardian to those of overseer of members' policies. The Fund's usual prescription is as economist Jeffrey Sachs said, 'budgetary belt tightening to countries who are much too poor to own belts'. The World Bank's official goal is the reduction of poverty, but according to its Articles of Agreement, all its decisions must be guided by a commitment to the promotion of foreign investment and international trade and to the facilitation of capital investment, whatever the cost to human life. The IMF, World Bank, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and the Bilderberg Group form a cabal of official and unofficial organizations and banks that inherit the leadership of the Rothschild and Rockefeller Families and the heirs of J.P. Morgan's financial empire. ("Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes her laws." -M. Rothschild.)

-ORDINARY AMERICAN CITIZENS AND IMMIGRANTS 1776-2014: Difficult to estimate deaths, suffering and lives cut short for the inhumane automaton reign of the profit motive that has been inherent in the governance of society by the wealthy through overall rule by the speculative banking industry. Merciless and often deadly economic exploitation of immigrants, minorities, especially African-American and Native American, and the inhuman discrimination suffered by them and for a century Jewish people as well, for the threat they represented to dominant investors, are explained well in changing historical context, by historian Howard Zinn in his Peoples' History of the United States, which one can read for free on line . Zinn describes horrific examples of the above: the Ford Co. Ludlow Massacre and other police and army homicidal repression and terror against groups of people refusing to work under murderous conditions of non-life-sustaining wage labor; deadly violence against tenants refusing to pay slumlords; the barbaric Dust Bowl exploitation described in Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath; the savage exploitation of immigrants in Upton Sinclair's The Jungle; the Triangle Shirt Factory Fire that exemplifies the mortally fearful working conditions of below-living-wage women employees in the garment industry that now continually occurs in merciless conditions suffered in Thailand and Bangladesh factories of outsourced US corporation production; hunger and child malnutrition desperation during depressions created by speculative banking and investors withdrawing money from the economy awaiting better returns; forced draft into military to serve genocidal wars for profit against the exploited poor in colonies or neocolonies overseas; corporate media psyop mind-control inculcating violent and degenerate behaviors in children convenient to marketing objectives.

The above list does not include any results of continuing research into important CIA involvement in any number of genocidal wars such as Biafra's 'secession' in Nigeria, the lead up to and aftermath of the Ruanda Genocide, and other "civil wars' and election violence throughout the Africa, Asia, and Latin America, but knowing the sweep of CIA power with stations in almost every nation and corporate investment machinations, criminal CIA involvement can be assumed. One only need recollect that a frightened US Congress saw fit to pass a bill forbidding further assassinations in 1972. Presidential candidate and Congressman Ron Paul spoke to this in May, referring to hyped mainstream television false coverage of the conflict in the Ukraine, "they're part of the banking system, they're part of the military-industrial complex, they're part of an educational system that endorses perpetual intervention overseas. We have 800 bases around the world with in 130 countries. We are always involved it seems in someone else's election."

Quoting from A Timeline of CIA Atrocities [19] "CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers, and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, and State Department-funded organizations like National Endowment for Democracy the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: "We'll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us." The Agency then hires, trains, and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy). It uses every trick in the book: propaganda, stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, sexual intrigue, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration and disruption of opposing political parties, kidnapping, beating, torture, intimidation, economic sabotage, death squads, and even assassination. These efforts culminate in a military coup, which installs a right-wing dictator. The CIA trains the dictator's security apparatus to crack down on the traditional enemies of big business, using interrogation, torture and murder. The victims are said to be "communists," but almost always they are just peasants, liberals, moderates, labor union leaders, political opponents and advocates of free speech and democracy. Widespread human-rights abuses follow.

This scenario has been repeated so many times that the CIA actually teaches it in a special school, the notorious "School of the Americas." Critics have nicknamed it the "School of the Dictators" and "School of the Assassins." Here, the CIA trains Latin American military officers how to conduct coups, including the use of interrogation, torture and murder.
The Association for Responsible Dissent estimates that by 1987, 6 million people had died as a result of CIA covert operations. Former State Department official William Blum correctly calls this an "American Holocaust. The CIA justified these actions as part of its war against communism, and since 2001 against terrorism. But most coups did not involve a communist nor terrorist threat. Unlucky nations are targeted for a wide variety of reasons, all boiling down to threats to American business interests abroad as Martin Luther King chronicled in his sermon 'Beyond Vietnam.'
In this space age of inexpensive and universally accessible information and personal communication technology racing forward, the neocolonized non-Caucasian vast majority of Earthlings in some way or another still colonized or Neocolonized by that "financial element in the centers of power that own the [US] government" as well as a weak US society, will awaken to the awareness of their ability to prosecute all the colonial and neocolonial crimes against it and call for compensations that will make wars unprofitable.[20]

"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson -- and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W. W. {Wilson}. The country is going though a repetition of Jackson's fight with the Bank of the United States -- only on a far bigger and broader basis." -- Letter by FDR to Colonel House, dated 21 November 1932
but FDR's aside came up short, for what was President Jackson battling in the Second National Bank and President Jefferson before him battling the First National Bank both private banks and precursors of the present tyrannical Federal Reserve which is also as FDR meant, a super powerful private bank.

Genocide is the systematic destruction of all or part of a racial, ethnic, religious or national group via the (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; or (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. Genocide entails also the Conspiracy to commit genocide; Direct and public incitement to commit genocide; Attempt to commit genocide; and Complicity in genocide. . What constitutes enough of a "part" to qualify as genocide has been subject to much debate by legal scholars. While a precise definition varies among genocide scholars, a legal definition is found in the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG). Article 2 of this convention defines genocide as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

In colonial America, Africans weren't enslaved because they were thought to be inferior. On the contrary, they were valued for their skill as farmers and desired for their labor. Planters had previously tried enslaving Native Americans, but many escaped and hid among neighboring tribes or were stricken by diseases brought to the New World by Europeans.

In the early years of the colonies, the majority of workers were poor indentured servants from England. In fact, during Virginia's first century, 100,000 of the 130,000 Englishmen who crossed the Atlantic were indentured servants. Conditions of servitude were miserable, and nearly two thirds died before their term of indenture ended. After several decades, African slaves began arriving in the U.S. and worked side by side with indentured servants. Many played together, intermarried, and ran away together. Racial categories were fluid, and slavery was not yet codified into law. Quoted from "Race Time Line," PBS

Alassane Quattara bio Wikipedia:

In April 1990, the IMF under the Structural Adjustment Program forced the Ivorian President Houphouà t-Boigny to accept Ouattara as Chairman of the Inter-ministerial Committee for Coordination of the Stabilization and Economic Recovery Programme of Cà te d'Ivoire. While holding that position, Ouattara also remained in his post as BCEAO Governor (Note that in this position he was also representing Burkina Faso).[3] He subsequently became Prime Minister of Cà te d'Ivoire on 7 November 1990 still under the IMF imposition,[3][8] after which Charles Konan Banny replaced him as Interim BCEAO Governor.[8]

You Tube: Ivory Coast, Africa New World Order, CIA, Freemasons, and the IMF
"The UN, CIA, EU, and all others should leave, including Burkina Faso's freemason president who hired and trained mercenaries to carry out a coup before the elections.
In the Dec. 2010 elections, we have heard numerously on corporate mainstream media about IC "rigged' election and the civil unrest and violence in result.
Th news about Ivory Coast was a surprise as the Western propaganda news agencies rarely inform their listeners about foreign events (in Africa esp.)
Gbagbo, an independent politician who is anti-colonialist, was running for re-election against Alassane Outtara.
Western media constantly declared that Quattara was the winner and that Gbagbo must leave.
What they did not mention, is that the Constitutional Council was informed that Ouattara won WITHOUT SHOWING the results to validate this.
After the dispute in the electioins, the US, EU, France, IMF, and the UN unfairly supported only Ouattara while demonizing Pres. Gbagbo unjustly.
The imperialist elites demanded Ouattara to be president which resulted in chaos in Ivory Coast.
Anyways, it has been shown that this sit has be orchestrated by the US CIA, the French government and an IMF and UN controlled by imperialist world elite like the Rockefellers and Rothschilds.
Also, the opposition candidate Ouattara worked for none other than the IMF, for many years.

Another thing is that French politician Jean-Francois Probst revealed in an interview that from his view and experience, Ouatara is very close to the CIA
We can see clearly that the powers that be want Ouattara as an IMF/CIA puppet, as they unjustly slander Gbabo while praising Outtara as the victor without evidence.
This while most Ivory Coast people have protested in favor of Gbabo.
reason elite powers want o control IC this much is not only strategic location of the country but also for its gold and oil reserves
another infamous group played a role in Ivory Coast and Outtara were the Freemasons
It was known that France and their African Freemason puppets have been planning to overthrow Gbabo since 2004
In meeetings 2004 OU participated in -French power conspired with Freemasons in Bukina Faso, to overthrow Gbabo and install Outtara.
President of Burkina Faso, Blaise Campaore Free mason, explained in this meeting and helped train mercenaries who would attempt to overthrow Gbabo. The treason of Outtara is blatant, as he supported this violence against Ivory Coast and its people.
"The plotters of yesterday , the plotters of today" they swim in the water and think we don't see their backs but we see them.'
in 2/2011, fortunately Gbabo is president."

Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara flew to France on Aug. 24
for a two-week vacation, arriving on a Gulfstream G3 aircraft
privately registered to Andalex Aviation II LLC, a company out
of Wilmington, Del. Previously on July 28, Ouattara flew to
Washington and on the following day met with the presidents of
Benin, Niger, Guinea and the United States. On that visit, the
Ivorian president arrived on a Gulfstream G5 aircraft,
registered, interestingly, to an apartment under the name Jet
Greene LLC in Miami Beach, Fla.

STRATFOR has reason to believe the aircraft belong to CIA front
companies; he could have chartered a plane from any number of
companies, so it does not stand to reason that he would charter
a plane registered to an apartment in Miami Beach. Moreover,
Ouattara has only recently assumed the presidency. Although he
was democratically elected in 2010, he had to take Abidjan
militarily before he could replace his predecessor, Laurent
Gbagbo. He now faces a number of threats, including from those
constituting the remnants of the Gbagbo regime and those within
his own camp, and the aircraft show that he has found the means
by which he will mitigate those threats: U.S. patronage.

Ivory Coast's Gbagbo Decries Foreign Intervention

ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast (AP) - Ivory Coast's incumbent leader Laurent Gbagbo,
who has refused to cede power, has accused world leaders of launching a
coup to oust him. ...

A Gbagbo youth leader has called for internationally
recognized leader Alassane Ouattara to leave the hotel by Saturday. ...

Gbagbo gave an address late Friday on state television in which he accused
the international community of mounting a coup d'etat to oust him and said
Ivorians were being subjected to international hostility.

"No one has the right to call on foreign armies to invade his country,"
Gbagbo said. "Our greatest duty to our country is to defend it from
foreign attack." ...

The U.N. declared Alassane
Ouattara the winner, endorsing the announcement by the country's electoral
commission. But Gbagbo has refused to step aside now for more than a
month, defying international condemnation and growing calls for his

The European Union said late Friday that it had approved sanctions on 59
more people, in addition to 19 already sanctioned last week including
Gbagbo and his wife. Gbagbo and about 30 of his allies also face U.S.
travel sanctions ...

West African leaders have said they are prepared to use military force to
push Gbagbo out, but are giving negotiations more time for now. For many,
the credibility of the international community is at stake if it is unable
to ensure that Ouattara takes power.

Gbagbo points to Ivory Coast's constitutional council, which declared him
president after throwing out more than half a million votes from Ouattara
strongholds. The council invalidated election results in those areas,
citing violence and intimidation directed at Gbagbo supporters. The top
U.N. envoy in Ivory Coast has disputed that assessment. ...

... a pro-Gbagbo youth leader has encouraged his supporters to
seize the Golf Hotel, saying that Ouattara and Soro have until Saturday to
"pack up their bags" and leave. The building is being guarded by some 800
U.N. peacekeepers and hundreds of rebels loyal to Ouattara.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said he is "deeply alarmed" by the
youth leader's comments, and he has called on Gbagbo supporters to
"refrain from such dangerous irresponsible action," a U.N. spokesman said.

The youth leader, Charles Ble Goude, is known as the "street general" for
organizing a violent anti-French and anti-U.N. gang that terrorized the
foreign population in Ivory Coast in 2004-2005.


There Was No Libyan Peaceful Protest,
Just Murderous Gangs and Nic Robertson

By Jay Janson

June, 2011

Nic Robertson and Anderson Cooper are surely aware of their achievement in promoting the human carnage of civil war and the destruction of a beautifully well-kept and prosperous nation, the 53rd highest developed country in the world with free health care and education. A standard of living that was higher than nine European nations, including Russia, is no more, thanks to their having daily led our entertainment with their war mongering of purposely distorted reporting, misreporting, disinformation, and blacking out of information that would have made this massive loss of human life impossible. They'll not be able to wash this off their conscience.

1). There were no peaceful protests!

2). CNN, covering the Danish Cartoons anniversary demonstration that was cooped with an announcement from London to make it into a "day of rage against Libyan leader Gaddafi,' showed us camera panning of a modest size crowd (mostly men) jumping up and down shouting against Gaddafi (not against Libya's high standard of living).

3). There were armed attacks on police stations (even traffic police) and vicious attacks on Chinese and Korea construction workers already two days before, and during the anniversary of the Danish Cartoons or "day of rage,' executions of 50 captured Libyan soldiers, one beheaded, some hung along with police officers. And who knows how many ordinary Libyan civilians harmed by tough guys brought in to Benghazi and other Cyrenaican towns. This was reported by Reuters and BBC, but not CNN.

4). CNN showed a video of a small amount of people scattering, running at twilight, cell phone camera jerking around in confusion with the sound of shooting from completely unidentified sources. There was Anderson Cooper and Nic Robertson crying out that "Gaddafi', was "targeting, shooting, bombing his own people who only want democracy. At the same time a flood of anti Gaddafi reports were coming in from well funded Libyan exile backers in various countries.

5). Imagine! On Feb. 21 a bare four days after the overseas calls for "day of rage' U.S. media's UK counterpart, the Telegraph reported that " the International Federation for Human Rights said Libya's second city along with Sirte, Tobruk, Misrata, Khoms, Tarhounah, Zenten, Al-Zawiya and Zouara had all been taken by protesters. "Protesters?" We were given to see these tough hombre heavily armed "freedom fighters' in their fleets of pickup trucks looking nothing at all like protesters.

6). While, very quickly, heavily armed insurgent gangs, always described as "ordinary citizens who had dropped their office jobs a few days before to fight for freedom,' were efficiently overrunning towns and airports, Cooper and Robertson kept excitedly exclaiming cities were being bombed from the air - civilians targeted - showing viewers the same single bomb crater in a field outside of a town for five days running as proof, though oddly admitting no one had been injured.

7). CNN and NY Times have never reported that Libya, as opposed to desperately poor Egypt and Yemen enjoys a higher standard of living than nine European nations including Russia. Rather, they continue emphasizing Western media condemnation of Gaddafi over his entire four decades of leadership of Libya and the movement for African Union.

8). In less than 2 weeks came Obama's executive orders freezing Libyan accounts or confiscating Libyan accounts of billions of dollars for eventual use by insurgents. Even earlier began the threats from international institutions beholden to U.S. and NATO, and open speculation by the same coalition of former colonial powers that had once conquered and ruled the entire non-white world for centuries, of military action against "Gaddafi' (that would add a sixth Muslim nation to its bombing list of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan.

9). Then came the successful pressuring of China and Russia not to veto a U.S. NATO attack on Libya in favor of the insurgent army (almost openly led and funded by CIA, M16, Mossad and the French Secret Service) under the pretext of protecting the Libyan population from its own government (never referred to a an independent nation, but as "Gaddafi" or "the Gaddafi regime). A UN "Security Council' resolution was passed, but never meant to protect Libyans from a brutal foreign funded insurgent army calling for warplanes of the former European occupiers of North Africa to bomb their own countrymen and nation. During all the months following, CNN would have us believe the attacking insurgents never killed anyone, while hammering in the Gaddafi monster theme.

10). All this deception was prepared over decades of rabid media attacks on Gaddafi, the anti-imperialist, the 'mad dog' of Reagan and Secretary Clinton, and then with claims that Libya was having just another revolution like those against the many U.S. supported dictators of Arab nations. War on Libyan was accepted by the American public in the same way the public had accepted covert violence and war to protect Guatemalans, Congolese, Dominicans, Cubans, Panamanians, Nicaraguans, Chileans and Hondurans from their presidents, wars to protect Koreans from other Koreans, Vietnamese from Vietnamese, Laotians from Laotians, Cambodians from Cambodians, Lebanese from Lebanese, Afghans from Afghans, Iraqis from Iraqis, Somalis from Somalis, Yemeni from Yemeni, Grenadians from Grenadians, Salvadorians from Salvadorians, Yugoslavs from Yugoslavs, Iranians from Iranians, Haitians from Haitians, and Pakistanis from Pakistanis. By this time everyone should have known of the U.S. protection racket, but count on innovation by CIA, CNN and the NY Times to make a seemingly ironclad case in favor of each new U.S. EU Canadian Australian war coalition.

Capitalism's Warplanes: CIA & al Qaeda Destroy Socialist Libya's 53rd Highest Living Standard
It's like when you watch a magician perform. You might have an idea how the sleight of hand was done. But you don't really know for sure. You just know what you saw was a trick.

You have seen revolutionaries before, real and phony. These heavily armed excited hombres don't look and act the part of the aggrieved, and for the most part don't look like the noble people risking their lives in the streets of Cairo, Tunis, Sana'a and Manama.

Thirdly, the really bad guys, the big bad guys - the very powerful imperialist capitalists who revolutionaries must always fight, are incongruously on the side of 'Libyan "revolutionaries.'

Fourthly, if they have it better than everyone else in Africa and the Arab world, why are they willing to kill and be killed to change the leader who has led them in producing an enviable level of social services democratically available to all citizens*(1 ), and side with Libya's former brutal exploiting European masters who now generously bomb Libya again?

Today, the CIA has permanent missions in Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Djibouti, Nigeria, Egypt, Libya, Rwanda and Mali. The CIA's missions are all focused on multiple objectives from combating Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists to capacity building for African military and security forces. Similarly, the Pentagon's sudden decision to create African Command or AFRICOM is another clear indication that the CIA has made a strategic, long-term organizational imperative to focus its attention on Africa.

Clearly, the CIA growing involvement is not simply just about "regime continuation" and "targeted hits" against America's enemies, but rather is actively involved in expanding its influence over Africa's political infrastructure and economic policies. For example, it is no coincidence that a number of African regimes such as Yoweri Kaguta Museveni of Uganda, Mwai Kibaki of Kenya, Ismail Omar Guelleh of Djibouti, and Hassan Sheikh of Somalia are now actively managed by the CIA. The dictatorial regimes or "assets" are totally dependent on the agenda of the CIA in terms of their continued existence as well as the re-structuring of their economies in the face of domestic and geo-political uncertainties.
