The Great Food Crisis of 2011 ~ link ~ As the new year begins, the price of wheat is setting an all-time high in the United Kingdom. Food riots are spreading across Algeria. Russia is importing grain to sustain its cattle herds until spring grazing begins. India is wrestling with an 18-percent annual food inflation rate, sparking protests. China is looking abroad for potentially massive quantities of wheat and corn. The Mexican government is buying corn futures to avoid unmanageable tortilla price rises. And on January 5, the U.N. Food and Agricultural organization announced that its food price index for December hit an all-time high.

Muammar Gaddafi condemns Tunisia uprising ~ link ~
In a speech last night Gaddafi, an ally of the ousted president, Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, said he was "pained" by the fall of the Tunisian government. He claimed protesters had been led astray by WikiLeaks disclosures detailing the corruption in Ben Ali's family and his repressive regime.
Greed of the Tunisian president's wife that drove a nation onto the streets to start a revolution ~ link ~ This article, all the more makes me suspect that the earlier article, which I linked on the Mossad and CIA being behind the trouble, may be correct. Of course, the ruling family was totally trash and food prices were going sky high, but the push seems to have first come from this Julian Assange, who I consider to be a Mossad/CIA operative.

Dead Tunisian fruit and vegetable seller could unleash wave of revolutions in Africa ~ link ~ The grievances in Tunisia are similar to those elsewhere in North Africa: Rising prices, repression, grotesque corruption and unemployment.
It is impossible to over-estimate the importance of this moment. Tunisia may be a small country of just ten million people, but the shock waves are being felt far away. A clutch of ageing despots in countries such as Egypt, Libya, Jordan and Algeria will be wondering nervously if they can prevent a rising tide of anger from turning into a wave of revolutions, just as in eastern Europe in 1989.
Shah in 1979. Since then Israel and its benefactor has attempted in vain to crush any Arab resistance by might. Fom their invasion and occupation of Lebanon to invasion and occupation of Iraq, these evil forces attempted to keep the lid on Arab democracy and keep their hegemony. Arab dictators were useful tools in implementing these destructive policies. But many of us have long argued that these shenanigans will and must come to an end.
Scientists warn California could be struck by winter 'superstorm' ~ link ~ link ~ A group of more than 100 scientists and experts say in a new report that California faces the risk of a massive "superstorm" that could flood a quarter of the state's homes and cause $300 billion to $400 billion in damage. Researchers point out that the potential scale of destruction in this storm scenario is four or five times the amount of damage that could be wrought by a major earthquake.
It sounds like the plot of an apocalyptic action movie, but scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey warned federal and state emergency officials that California's geological history shows such "superstorms" have happened in the past, and should be added to the long list of natural disasters to worry about in the Golden State.
The threat of a cataclysmic California storm has been dormant for the past 150 years. Geological Survey director Marcia K. McNutt told the New York Times that a 300-mile stretch of the Central Valley was inundated from 1861-62. The floods were so bad that the state capital had to be moved to San Francisco, and Governor Leland Stanford had to take a rowboat to his own inauguration, the report notes. Even larger storms happened in past centuries, over the dates 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418, and 1605, according to geological evidence.
Hundreds of dead seals in Labrador ~ link ~ The same weather system that caused the cold in Ireland, the United Kingdom and western Europe, caused a section of abnormally warm weather in parts of northeast Canada. This is one of the sad results of that climate change. Stirling
People on the north coast of Labrador say scores of dead seals have been washing ashore since early December.
Hariti tribunal: UN prosecutor issues sealed indictment ~ link ~ This indictment, which has been a long time in coming and which is likely to blame the wrong group, is apt to lead to a horrific war in the Middle East that will backfire on Israel. That may be the real reason that the former Prime Minister Barak quit as Defense Minister. He does not want the blame to fall on him. Stirling

Turkey calls on Israel to sack Avigdor Lieberman ~ link ~ Lieberman is a total disgrace. He is a racist and a nut, but with the pullout of Barak and four others in the Knesset from his government, Bibi Netanyahu need Lieberman and his people more now than ever. Stirling
Admadinejad, Erdogan discuss Lebanon ~ link ~ Ahmadinejad and Erdogan said it is necessary that different Lebanese groups make prompt decision to settle the issue and not allow politically motivated moves or foreign intervention aggravate the situation.
Ahmadinejad also said, “The Zionist regime is seeking to take advantage of the current situation to undermine this country (Lebanon) and deal a blow to the (regional countries), so the regional countries should cooperatively try to find a solution to the current issues facing Lebanon.”
The Turkish prime minister said regional countries should make joint efforts to help establish stability in Lebanon.
“Iran and Turkey along with other regional countries are able to play a role” in helping the Lebanese to control crisis in their country, Erdogan said.
Ahmadinejad talks with Saudi King on phone ~ link ~ I may be misreading this, but I do believe that the Iranians and Arabs (on all sides) are really trying to prevent this Israeli/American attempt at starting a war from working. Time will tell if they are successful. Stirling
King Abdullah thanked Ahmadinejad and said he hoped the Iranian government and people would enjoy success and prosperity.
The king, who is about 86 years old, flew to New York on November 22, where he underwent a back surgery.
Israel set for another war on Gaza ~ link ~
Israel has increased and intensified its attacks on Gaza over the past few months, with many Palestinians killed or injured in the assaults.
In December, at least five people were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the town of Deir al-Balah in central Gaza. This was one of the deadliest attacks since the December 2008-January 2009 war, a Press TV correspondent reported.
The 22-day Israeli onslaught took the lives of more than 1,400 Palestinians, mostly civilians, in the populated coastal strip and left thousands more injured. It also inflicted over USD 1.6 billion in damages on the territory's economy.
Tel Aviv laid an economic siege on the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after Hamas took control of the coastal sliver.
Israel may be on the eve of revolution ~ link ~ Or it may not be. Stirling
Pressure mounts on UN to Rein in Israel Expansionism, State Violence ~ link ~ Notice has everything seems to have increased in tempo lately, the Middle East, China/Koreas/USA/Japan, Global Depression, Political Repression, Food Crisis, Climate Crisis. We are in the Final Section of the End Times now! Stirling
Calls are growing for a swift international response to the situation in the Middle East, as Israel continues to build new settlements in Palestinian territories with increased military actions against civilians.
Chinese Troops Stationed in North Korea Special Zone ~ link ~ Chinese troops have been stationed in the special economic zone of Rajin-Sonbong in North Korea, sources said Friday. This would be the first time since Chinese troops withdrew from the Military Armistice Commission in the truce village of Panmunjom in December 1994 that they have been stationed in the North.
"Pyongyang and Beijing have reportedly discussed the matter of stationing a small number of Chinese troops in the Rajin-Sonbong region to guard port facilities China has invested in," a Cheong Wa Dae official said. "If it's true, they're apparently there to protect either facilities or Chinese residents rather than for political or military reasons."

Avi Shlaim on the Neoconservative Middle East War Agenda ~ link ~ “The basic premise behind George W. Bush’s policy towards the Middle East reflected this strong pro-Israeli bias,” Shlaim opines. “The premise was that the key issue in Middle East politics was not Palestine, but Iraq.” (p. 297) This is the essence of my thesis, but it is something many establishment people, including those who have been antiwar, ardently deny when they claim that the elimination of Saddam not only harmed Israeli interests by empowering Iran, but that this result was clearly foreseen by Israelis and supporters of Israel prior to the attack on Iraq and that the government of Israel thus allegedly opposed the war. The Transparent Cabal, of course, shows that the entire neocon war agenda in the Middle East was directed to advancing Israel’s security by weakening its enemies and that Israeli leaders did, in fact, promote the war on Iraq. Of course, in the United States, any claim that American Jews promote Israeli interests, no matter how well adduced, invariably elicits accusations of anti-Semitism.
“American proponents of the war on Iraq promised that action against Iraq would form part of a broader engagement with the problems of the Middle East,” Shlaim notes. “The road to Jerusalem, they argued, went through Baghdad. Cutting off Saddam Hussein’s support for Palestinian terrorism was, according to them, an essential first step in the quest for a settlement.” (p. 297) Later he observes: “One of the main arguments for regime change in Baghdad was to put an end to Iraqi support for Palestinian militants and for what was seen as Palestinian intransigence in the peace process with Israel.” (p. 300)
As I point out in The Transparent Cabal, the neocons maintained that it was the removal of not only Saddam, but most “non-democratic” regimes in the Middle East, which was necessary to bring about a peaceful settlement of the Palestinian issue. However, the “peace” the neocons had in mind was one dictated by Israel. Elimination of the Middle Eastern “non-democratic” regimes would facilitate this development because it was just these regimes that provided moral and material support to the Palestinian resistance, portrayed by the neocons as “Palestinian intransigence.”
According to Western intelligence reports, Russian scientists warned the Kremlin that they could be facing "another Chernobyl" if they were forced to comply with Iran's tight deadline to activate the complex this summer.

Australia floods: Crisis moves south to Victoria - with video ~ link ~Residents of the town of Horsham, which lies 190 miles northwest of Melbourne and is home to 14,000 people, were rushing to protect their homes with sandbags as the swollen Wimmera River threatened 500 properties.
"It's predicted to be a one-in-200-year event," a Victoria emergency services spokesman said. "We are expecting [Horsham] will be cut in half by the river and that the highway be cut as well." Across Victoria, more than 1,600 properties have been affected by rising water and 3,500 people have been evacuated from their homes.
The British worker is suffering the pain of inflation - but in Ireland it's worse ~ link ~ Suddenly, we're all worrying about inflation. Well, perhaps not everyone is: US inflation is running at an annual rate of only 1.5 per cent Stripped of volatile food and energy components, it is a mere 0.8 per cent. But inflation in the eurozone is now up to 2.2 per cent, above the European Central Bank's target. In the UK it is at an uncomfortable 3.3 per cent (4.7 per cent in RPI terms), forcing the Governor of the to write apologetic letters to the Chancellor explaining why the hallowed 2.0 per cent target is being overshot.
True State of the Economy - You'd Better Be Darn Scared ~ link ~ The damnable lies that continue out of lazy, corrupt media mouthpieces regarding the true state of the economy is nothing short of reprehensible. We expect politicians to lie every time they open their mouths. We expect ethically bankrupt crooks like Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner to lie every time they open their mouth to protect their banking interests. However, a free media is supposed to be the watch dog for government corruption and report the facts, not propaganda. Not so for a long, long time for what is known as the "mainstream" media. Fools they are because like tens of millions of others, they will also be reduced to penury. Lackeys for their corporate masters no longer question numbers; perhaps they are as ignorant as the majority of adults in this country when it comes to fiat currency and taxation.
Housing Market Plunge Passes Great Depression Levels ~ link ~ Home prices fell for the 53rd straight month in November, taking the decline past that of the Great Depression for the first time in the prolonged housing slump, according to Zillow.com.
Prices have fallen 26 percent since their peak in 2006, exceeding the 25.9 percent drop registered in the five years between 1928 and 1933, the housing data company reports. The word comes on the heels of figures showing banks repossessed more than one million homes in the U.S. last year -- and they're expected to take back even more this year.
