Revolutions in North Africa and the Middle East - Who Really Benefits?  Will they continue to spread throughout the world in the wake of global food shortages, global depression, and Austerity Fascism?  by Lord Stirling ~ link

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.      


Before we allow hardliners in Israel take us into yet another war, we need to take a very hard and realistic look at just what a war involving MAD on all sides would mean to Israel, to Europe, to North America and the entire world.

Morocco protesters demand political change ~ link
Berber protesters in Rabat, 20 Feb 2011 Protesters marched through Rabat in heavy rain
Thousands of Moroccans have rallied in the capital, Rabat, to demand that King Mohammed give up some of his powers. Reports from Rabat said the protesters were heading towards parliament and that police had not tried to halt them. A separate protest was under way in Casablanca and one was planned for Marrakesh.

Protests have spread across the region since popular movements in Tunisia and Egypt forced out leaders. In Rabat, the protesters have been chanting: "The people want the regime to fall," and "the people reject a constitution made for slaves." The rally was organised by groups including one calling itself the February 20 Movement for Change. At least 22,000 people have expressed their backing for its Facebook site.

Map of Morocco
Analysts say Morocco has a successful economy, an elected parliament and a reformist monarchy, making it less likely than other states to be the subject of a major public uprising. Other countries involved in the protests have high unemployment and less political freedom. King Mohammed is a member of the Alaouite dynasty that has been ruling Morocco for some 350 years, claiming a direct line of descent from the Prophet Muhammad




Bahrain opposition set demands for talks with royals - with video ~ link
Map of Bahrain
Opposition groups and anti-government protesters in Bahrain say their demands must be met before they will enter into talks with the Gulf state's monarchy. They want the government to resign, political prisoners to be released and the deaths of protesters investigated. Six people were killed and many wounded in the last week as security forces used deadly force to quell protests. Demonstrators have re-established a protest camp in Manama's central Pearl Square after security forces withdrew. Hundreds of people spent the night in the square, the focal point of the week's unrest. A protest camp had been cleared on Thursday with the deaths of four people, but protesters flocked to the square on Saturday after the military left.
They were met by police who fired volleys of tear gas and shotgun rounds, wounding dozens of people, before suddenly withdrawing and leaving the square to the jubilant protesters.



Libya unrest: Scores killed in Benghazi massacre - with video ~ link ~ Details have emerged of huge casualty figures in the Libyan city of Benghazi, where troops have launched a brutal crackdown on protesters.
More than 200 people are known to have died, doctors say, with 900 injured. The most bloody attacks were reported over the weekend, when a funeral procession is said to have come under machine-gun and heavy weapons fire.

One doctor, saying that fresh gunfire had broken out, told the BBC that what had happened was "a real massacre".
Human Rights Watch says at least 173 people have been killed in Libya since demonstrations began on Wednesday.
Benghazi, the country's second city, has been a leading focus of protests against Col Muammar Gaddafi's rule.



Two Iraqi protesters killed amid unrest in normally peaceful Kurdistan ~ link ~ At least two protesters were killed Thursday when soldiers opened fire on stone-throwing demonstrators in the Kurdish city of Sulaymaniyah as the unrest triggered by turmoil elsewhere in the Middle East reached the normally placid enclave of Kurdistan in northern Iraq  Forty-three people were injured when the Kurdish pesh merga fighters fired live ammunition at youths throwing stones at the headquarters of the region's dominant political party, the Kurdish Democratic Party (KDP), witnesses said. 

The shootings brought to five the number of deaths in two days of violent protests in Iraq, where long-standing grievances about inadequate services, unemployment and corruption have erupted on the streets, inspired at least in part by the successes of the recent revoltsTunisia and Egypt




Mubarak and Ben Ali comas: What would Tacitus say? ~ link ~ So the story is that Mubarak and Ben Ali are now both desperately ill — indeed, it is said, in a coma. And there have been a handful of sharp comments, wondering what the “Deposed Dictator Syndrome” (DDS) actually is — and how convenient it might be as a protective device against assassination.

I couldn’t help thinking how Roman it all looked. There is a whole series of similar scenarios, brilliantly concocted by the brilliant Tacitus (I say ‘concocted’ because he cant possibly have known what went on). They are all centred on the grimy last moments of autocrats and dictators.

The basic rule for Tacitus is that despots don’t die a natural death. In the midst of a power struggle they get smothered or poisoned, while the word is put out that they have been struck down by some nasty illness. Alternatively, they have long died (and this is more the ‘Soviet president scenario’), while the word is put out that he is still hanging on to life — until the new emperor is ready to be presented to the troops and the people. Livy even manages to retroject this scenario to the earliest kings of Rome, and has Tanaquil easing Servius Tullius onto the throne, by carefully managing the death of Tarquinius Priscus. (And it is the emperor Tiberius at the top of this post.)

It’s not hard to invent what Tacitus might have to say about the roles of Susan Mubarak, Gamal, Alaa, Suleiman — and a few strategically placed pillows and poisoned mushrooms.




Will "Hated Dictator SYNDROME" become contagious ~ link ~ It seems that a number of dictators in North Africa and the Middle East have entered retirement in a way they never imagined.

Is it a coincidence that deposed despots Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarak each purportedly went into a coma shortly after stepping down?

Ariel Sharon also went into a coma for his retirement. However, for the Israeli dictator the sequence of events was a bit different since he became incapacitated while still in office.

Former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, who was known as the butcher of Sabra and Shatila, has been in a permanent vegetative state since suffering a stroke on January 4, 2006.

Kept alive through a feeding tube, the former prime minister of Israel continues to open his eyes, and for a few hours a day he is propped up to “watch” television, but no one knows whether he can really see or hear the programs. Music is often on in the hope that the former dictator could hear something.

So, for now, the 82-year-old stays in his hospital room, an armed guard at the door. Sharon is given physiotherapy and his position is shifted throughout the day to ensure he does not develop bedsores -- the condition, along with pneumonia, that most often leads to fatal complications in elderly patients who lie in a vegetative state.

Former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in late 2004, also went into a vegetative state before dying. He was not a despot like Sharon or Mubarak since he did not rule an independent state, but he always served the Zionists.

After effectively being confined within his Ramallah compound for over two years by the Israeli army, Arafat became ill, fell into a coma, and died on November 11, 2004 at the age of 75. While the exact cause of his death remains unknown and no autopsy was performed, his doctors spoke of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and cirrhosis.

Seeing that this trend has developed and that change is definitely in the air in the Arab world, one cannot help wondering if hated dictator syndrome will become contagious.
 




A look at the week ahead: Little economic data with ALL EYES ON THE LIBYAN REVOLUTION ~ link 




Is Bernanke to blame for the Rising Global Revolutionary Wave ~ link ~ The real ones to blame are the only people who think in terms of global changes to suit their long term econ-political agenda, and have the political and economic power to effect such changes: The global banking families, and most especially the Rothschilds.  Stirling       

A topic which we anticipated last summer, and which has come to shocking and rapid fruition ever since the beginning of the year with the self-immolation of a Tunisian protester, resulting in a tsunami of violent revolutionary uprisings across the developing world, has been the question of whether and to what degree Bernanke's monetary policies are responsible for what is becoming an indirect wave of suppressionary genocide (today alone, between Libya, Yemen and Bahrain over 500 people have been killed). And while Zero Hedge is far less ambivalent about the underlying cause of the surge in anger (in most of the affected countries, the bulk of their population has to spend well over half of its income on food and energy), and when people who already have nothing, see whatever little they have left taken away as well, they see no downside in violent revolution, there are some more moderate views. 



Alex Jones: NWO orchestrated protests - video ~ link ~ Alex has it right!  Take the time to view this excellent video!   Stirling     

The protests that have rocked the Middle East have found their way to the Midwest, as problems from a bad global economy has sparked these demonstrations. Radio Host Alex Jones believes the protests were orchestrated by the New World Order and use this as fury in the streets to roll in another layer to the police state. 



Libya, Bahrain, Iran, Yemen and Other Arab Governments Killing Protesters ~ link ~ Iran is NOT Arab, but Persian!  However, this slip up aside, this link is an interesting series of videos showing events and theories on what is behind them in North Africa and the Middle East and perhaps globally.  I think it does not go far enough on two levels.  On the earthly level, it does not fully identify the ultimate players, the global banking cartel/families.  On a higher plane/level, it does not identify that this is ultimately a spiritual battle.  Stirling       

Some claim that these protests are actually created by American intelligence forces to destabilize the Arab world

But trend forecaster Gerald Celente has a very different view of what is unfolding:

It is not solely the Middle East that is destined to experience episodes of violent upheaval. What is transpiring in the Arab world will spread throughout many European states. While the call to arms will be spoken in different tongues, the underlying causes will be the same.
In December 2010 (before Tunisia made the headlines) we issued a Trend Alert titled, “Off With Their Heads!” in which we predicted a “long war between the people and the ruling classes.” We noted that, “Anyone questioning the intensity of the people’s seething anger is either out of touch or in denial.”
It wasn’t Arab anger that led us to that forecast – it was the student and worker revolts spilling into the streets of Europe. The imposition of draconian austerity measures – higher taxes, tuition hikes, lost benefits, curtailed services, public sector job cuts – had young and old raging against a rigged system that paved the way for the privileged and punished the proles.
Though millions marched through the streets of Athens, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, London and Madrid, when the protests ended, the governments were barely shaken, let alone toppled. Unlike the autocratic Arab regimes, where the tight grip of repression could only be broken by violence, in the “democratic” West the illusion of representation and placating government promises mitigated the violence. Both the press and politicians assumed the protests would run their course, people would accept their fate, and, like it or not, suffer the consequences. The protests, however, have not run their course. The economic toll of austerity and unemployment continues to ravage the lower and middle classes. As we wrote in the Winter 2011 Trends Journal, “It will only be a matter of time before a series of final-straw events breaks the public’s back, setting off uncontrollable uprisings, coups (bloodless and/or military), riots and revolts throughout the financially battered world.”
***
Already the public is being conditioned to view the Egyptian military as beloved liberators. But in fact they are simply another arm of the autocratic government, no more familiar with democratic ideals than the dictator they replace … who had himself been drawn from the ranks of the military.
The world leaders and world media are not recognizing the Egyptian uprising for what it is: a prelude to a series of civil wars that will lead to regional wars, that will lead to the first “Great War” of the 21st century.







 
Looking for a Snack-Down on  the Road to Damascus ~ link ~ Dog Poet Transmitting.....
Note this line from the text of this link, “two-thirds of corporations pay no taxes". This has got the feel of Ludlow redux in the on deck circle. Transparently, the reason for America’s bankruptcy can be laid at the feet of the bankers and corporations. You’ll see the evidence there, crumpled together with The Constitution and The Bill of Rights. Both of which now look like someone wiped themselves with them.

We’re all wondered why the American people are playing the role of a submissive bottom in an S&M sex fantasy and the answer
is right here. I know that TV and music are also playing a role and that they are doing subliminal programming on a regular basis as we are all extras in a real life re-make of “They Live”. Still, the degree of absurdity is off the charts. Read the intent of the pharmaceutical companies in this dreadful affair.

Popular uprisings spread across Middle East despite brutal crackdowns ~ linkA Salmaniya hospital doctor told Al Jazeera that the hospital was full of severely injured people: “We need help! Our staff is entirely overwhelmed. They are shooting at people’s heads. Not at the legs. People are having their brains blown out!”

A protester told the news agency: “They had machine guns, not rifles or hand weapons, and they shot people who ran away.” Another demonstrator, Hussein Ali, said: “They started firing from the bridge without any warning, then they started firing from their cars ... It was terrifying, a nightmare. Small children and women were falling over.”





Gold: The ultimate inflation hedge ~ link
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-SUrw-aELPQM/TV_PalO7utI/AAAAAAAAG3o/pquLjdrp8mg/s1600/gold+inflation.jpg 
More startling is that gold has retained this purchasing power over even longer periods. It is thought that an ounce of gold bought 350 loaves in the time of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon who died in 562BC. An ounce of gold still buys roughly 350 ordinary sliced loaves today, showing that over 2,500 years gold has proved a very effective hedge against inflation, at least when it comes to everyday essentials.

Given our current economic situation, it's not hard to see why there is increasing demand for an asset that appears to offer inflation-proofed returns.
 



Wisconsin budget cuts:  Madison rally attracts thousands ~ linkGreat theater to introduce the next big thing in America, a political/cultural/economic/class/spiritual battle over the American version of Austerity Fascism.   While the global banking cartel/families steal everything and turn our traditional freedoms into 'past tense', we are being set up to fight over 'the arrangement of the deck chairs on the Titanic' of the sinking Middle Class.  Stirling

Dear Lord Stirling,

The situation in the Suez canal is getting worse.

US warships have boxed in two Iranian ships.
The US troops might control the cargo of the ships.

"US warships box in Iranian flotilla, delay Suez passage"

I think this is prtetty dangerous.
