Advanced Biological Warfare (article by Lord Stirling) ~ link ~ I have a link to a free movie on Hulu, BLACK DAWN: THE NEXT PANDEMIC, that is most interesting. The movie is about the spread of a naturally occurring mutation in the H5N1 virus; a rather nasty mutation that kills up to 10% of those it effects. I strongly urge people to take the time to view this movie, as it shows the impact of what a single naturally occurring virus mutation can do. In reality, a global strategic Advanced Biological-based war would be at least ten-fold as bad and more likely a hundred-fold in its impact as the viruses would be military designer-created (recombination DNA) diseases with a much stronger kill ratio (90% or higher fatality level from an infection) and there would likely be many dozens of viruses released at the same time, instead of only one disease.

Next War on Lebanon 'no walk in park' for Israel says President of Lebanon ~ link ~ "Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak knows full well that entering Lebanon is no longer a walk in the park," AFP quoted Sleiman as saying in a statement released on Thursday.
"[Barak's] threat to send his forces into Lebanon again shows premeditated intentions of aggression. The Lebanese people, army and resistance are ready to respond to any such aggression," the Lebanese president added.
On Tuesday, Barak said Israeli armed forces may cross into the southern Lebanese territory again and engage in a military confrontation with Hezbollah resistance fighters.
The Israeli defense minister claimed that Israel inflicted heavy loss on Hezbollah during the 33-day war on Lebanon that killed about 1,200 Lebanese -- most of them civilians.
Hezbollah leader Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah on Wednesday downplayed Israel's latest threat of invasion, saying Tel Aviv will pay a heavy price if it launches another war on Lebanon.
He said that Lebanon's resistance fighters are ready to take the strategic Galilee region, north of Israel, should another war with Israel break out.
According to 629-page Winograd Report, Hezbollah defeated Israeli forces in the 2006 war and Tel Aviv was compelled to withdraw without having achieved any of its objectives.

Bahrain protests banned as military tightens grip - with video ~ link ~ This is going to get interesting. The Saudis have sent part of their army into Bahrain to support the King of Bahrain. The ruling families see the revolutions as a Zionist plot against all of the Middle East and there is real evidence to support this. However, the people are also right to want to rid their nations of corrupt dictators, and food prices are going up. In such nations, where food costs take from 40 to 80% of one total income, food price rises are a matter of life and death. Food prices are rapidly rising due to the BP Oil Disaster caused global climate changes/crisis and also due to the activities of the banksters/global banking families with hedge funds/etc. speculating on food commodities. We are seeing the perfect storm gathering strength in the Middle East and North Africa, a perfect storm that the evil nut cases in Israel and the satanic global banking families intend to use to cause a massive regional war in the Middle East and to help, via so much spreading chaos, to usher in the New World Order.

Ben Ali in coma after stroke ~ link ~ I am not so sure that I believe this. Stirling
French newspaper Le Monde reported on Thursday that Ben Ali had a stroke earlier this week in Saudi Arabia, where he fled to in January following his ouster. The paper has described the deposed president's condition as “worrying,” citing the blog of French journalist Nicolas Beau, a veteran reporter specializing in Tunisia.
The 74-year-old reportedly slipped into a coma on Tuesday while being treated in a Jeddah hospital after suffering a stroke. The hospital in Jeddah, where Ben Ali was admitted under false identity, is reserved for Saudi princes, according to Le Monde.
Ben Ali and his family fled Tunisia for Saudi Arabia on January 14 after a popular revolution put an end to the dictator's 23-year grip on the North African country.
Bahrain MPs quit to protest crackdown ~ link ~
The lawmakers announced on Thursday that they have suspended their membership in parliament over the killings of Shia demonstrators, Press TV cited an unnamed opposition parliamentarian as saying.
According to Bahraini health ministry, three people were killed and 195 injured when police launched a crackdown against protesters in capital Manama on Thursday.
Armored vehicles rumbled through the capital on Thursday as the government tried to quell the protests inspired by the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt.
Bahrain's army has said it will take all necessary measures to ensure security and called on people to avoid going to central areas of Manama.
The US Department of Defense says Washington is closely monitoring the developments in Bahrain, which is the headquarters of the US Navy's Fifth Fleet and holds some 4,200 US service members.
The magnitude of the pro-democracy protests in Bahrain is unprecedented in the history of the Persian Gulf kingdom and the authorities' efforts to quell them have so far been ineffective.
