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.

New Egyptian Prime Minister pledges democratic change ~ link ~
Egyptian Prime Minister- designate Essam Sharaf, with microphone, speaks to demonstrators at Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt Essam Sharaf took part in the street protests that led Hosni Mubarak to step down
Egypt's new Prime Minister, Essam Sharaf, has pledged to meet the demands for democratic change sought by protesters, and to resign if he fails. He made the comments in an address before thousands gathered at Cairo's Tahrir Square before Friday prayers. The former transport minister told the crowds that he drew his "will and determination" from the people.

Mr Sharaf replaced Ahmed Shafiq, who was appointed in the dying days of the regime of Hosni Mubarak. He was named as head of the transitional caretaker government by the army on Thursday. On Friday, it was announced that a referendum on constitutional reform in the country would be held on 19 March. Elections for parliament and to choose a new president are scheduled within six months.
 


Jordan rejects constitutional monarchy ~ link
Thousands of Jordanians have taken to the streets of the capital, Amman, after Prime Minister Maaruf Bakhit rejected calls for a constitutional monarchy. On Thursday, Bakhit told lawmakers that the constitutional monarchy would unbalance Jordan's political system and violate the constitution. 
 

Inspired by the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions, Jordanians have been holding protest rallies for the past two months, demanding political reforms, including a constitutional monarchy.  Protesters want King Abdullah to relinquish some of his powers, including the right to appoint prime ministers.





North Yemen forces fired on protesters ~ link
Map
Houthi rebels in north Yemen say the armed forces have fired on their anti-government protest. The Shia rebels claim two people were killed and at least seven were injured in the incident in the northern province of Amran, reports say.

There have been many anti-government protests in recent weeks, mainly focused in cities of Sanaa and Aden. Demonstrators want the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, who has ruled since 1978. Thousands of people are reported to have gathered in the town of Harf Sufyan for a peaceful protest, calling for political change and an end to corruption. 



Libya: Protests hit Gaddafi stronghold of Tripoli ~ link
Security forces fire tear gas at protesters in Tajoura, Tripoli, 4 March 2011 Anti-Gaddafi protesters fled after security forces opened fire with tear gas and baton rounds

Libyan security forces have used tear gas to disperse hundreds of protesters after Friday prayers in Col Gaddafi's stronghold of Tripoli. A BBC reporter in the eastern suburb of Tajoura said demonstrators had burnt the official Libyan flag. Secret police had tightened security in the area earlier, and Gaddafi loyalists set up traffic checkpoints.

Clashes also erupted in the town of Zawiya and the oil port of Ras Lanuf, with heavy casualties reported. Reports from Ras Lanuf described the sound of multiple explosions and heavy artillery on the outskirts of the port. Opposition fighters had reportedly advanced on the city. Pro-Gaddafi forces withdrew to Ras Lanuf two days ago after a battle. Rebels later said they had seized the airport at Ras Lanuf, while state television reported that the town of Zawiya had been retaken by pro-Gaddafi forces. There was no independent confirmation of either claim.
 


Anti-government protests held in Saudi Arabia ~ link ~ This is the 'big one'.  I strongly suspect that the Saudi Royal Family will not allow the global banking cartel and the Mossad to engineer a successful revolution.  If a revolution gets close, they are apt to chose to ignite the whole region in war before they would be overturned.  Stirling     

Saudi Arabia's anti-riot police hold back protesters in Awamiyya March 3, 2011

Hundreds of Saudis have taken to the streets in the eastern province of al-Ahsa, demanding the immediate release of a senior Shia cleric.
 

The peaceful protest rally, dubbed the 'Day of Rage,' which condemned the Saudi government's detention of Sheikh Tawfiq al-Amer, was held in al-Hufuf district following the Friday Prayers. The Shia cleric was arrested last Friday after a sermon in which he said Saudi Arabia should become a constitutional monarchy.  Sheikh Tawfiq al-Amer has been arrested several times over his calls for giving Shias, a minority in Saudi Arabia, further freedom to exercise their religious rights. 





Gaddafi forces open fire on protesters ~ link ~
Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi's troops have opened heavy fire on anti-regime protesters in an area near the oil port of Ras Lanuf.  Heavy shelling has been heard from the city some 600 kilometers east of the capital, Tripoli. At least four people were killed during heavy clashes between Gaddafi loyalists and defectors, a Press TV correspondent reported.

Reports say Gaddafi's military forces have bombed the eastern oil-rich town of Brega for the third consecutive day. Similar air strikes have also been reported in the northeastern town of Ajdabiya 160 kilometers south of Benghazi.

This comes as reports say Gaddafi's regime has stepped up the recruitment of mercenaries from other African countries. Revolutionary forces say they have already captured scores of Gaddafi mercenaries. 



Marines Return to Tripoli? ~ link ~ On a serious note, men preparing to land amid an unstable political and military situation with very limited resources are going into a situation fraught with danger. The left likes to protest any military intervention, expedition, commitment or use of American Military Forces. Left-wing politicians will call for an immediate withdraw of American Forces and demand ten different investigations. There is no national will to invade Libya! None!

Any concept of invading a country that German, Italian, British, Australian, New Zealand and Allied and American troops fought over for years – before defeat of the Axis troops – must be very carefully planned. Full support must be provided including two full divisions with sufficient Armor and Air assets available to the Infantry. Rules of engagement must not be included. The laws of land warfare and military regulations are sufficient – the troops must not be endangered by criminal restrictions on their ability to kill the enemy. Know too that collateral damage means dead babies, dead children, dead moms and dads and horror on a mass scale. These things will happen The United States of America invades Libya. The Military will try to avoid civilian injury and it will fail. Clean uncluttered warfare does not exist.





Israel Intervenes in Libya - for Gaddafi ~ link In a move that surprises all but Middle East experts, Israel has promised Libya’s dictator of over 40 years, Colonel Gaddafi, 50,000 troops  to aid in crushing rebels set on overthrowing his his murderous rule.   According to news sources inside Israel, “troops” are being hired across Africa, Uganda, Sudan, Chad and the Central Africa Republic, including Al Qaeda fighters, to be deployed against demonstrators and rebel forces currently involved in heavy fighting in a two week old attempt to overthrow the Libyan ruler that has left thousands dead.

In the last 72 hours, rebel leaders have been in contact with Britain and the United States, nations that have promised aid and have positioned forces in the Mediterranean for a decisive strike against Gaddafi.  Additional US Marines have been sent to reinforce assault teams on the USS Kearsarge, a helicopter assault ship  now stationed off Tripoli awaiting orders to begin operations.


Despite his outward image as an Arab nationalist leader, Gaddafi has maintained close ties with Israel since his takeover of Libya in a military coup in 1969. That friendship, “strange bedfellows,” has finally come to light, one of the many “closeted partnerships” between Israel and Middle Eastern dictators that were exposed by Wikileaks.

Gaddafi, a Marxist, was himself the subject of a coup planned by British SAS founder David Sterling early on.  Sterling was shocked when ordered to stand down, being told that Gaddafi was, though a communist, under the protection of both the United States and Israel.

Though, for decades, the western press has depicted Gadaffi as a staunch enemy of Israel and Zionism, the two nations have shared covert projects that can be traced as far back as the early 1970s.  A consortium of “rogue” states, Iran under the Shah, apartheid South Africa, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Gaddafi’s Libya and Israel sold arms, developed weapons technologies and operated a network of spies, particularly inside the United States, keeping the Soviet Union abreast of NATO military and intelligence secrets and defense plans.

Of the original “Axis of Evil,” only Libya and Israel remain.


Libya's money machine keeping Gaddafi alive ~ link ~ “Israel is flooding Libya with mercenaries, Gaddafi is slaughtering his own people and the rebel leaders who have called for help from America are being ignored while Gaddafi is consolidating for a full scale civil war which could easily have ended a week ago.”

This is the scenario being played out in Libya.  Gaddafi will be allowed to survive, weakened and muted, facing “elimination” at any time for “war crimes” now being carefully documented.  He will have to pay out billions to keep his business running, if, if he lasts.





 



Wales says YES in referendum vote ~ linkWales has said a resounding Yes in the referendum on direct law-making powers for the assembly. When the last result was declared, all 22 counties except one - Monmouthshire - backed change. Turnout is provisionally put at 35%.
The final result saw 517,132 vote Yes, and 297,380 say No - a 63.5% to 36.5% winning margin.

The vote will give the assembly direct law-making power in 20 devolved areas, such as health and education.



EU's Baroness Ashton mulls scrapping Mideast envoy job ~ link ~ Belgian diplomat Marc Otte was not replaced after his term ended this week and it will probably be several months before Ashton decides to name a new envoy, a diplomat told AFP. "A final decision will be taken a later time, probably in the fall," the diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

Ashton, who is heading a new EU diplomatic service, is reviewing the European Union's network of special envoys and representatives in order to determine their usefulness. The EU's foreign and security policy chief has made her personal involvement in the diplomatic efforts in the Middle East a priority and prefers to take the dossier in her own hands, another diplomat said. The English baroness is close to the special envoy of the diplomatic Quartet in the Middle East, former British prime minister Tony Blair, her political mentor in the Labor Party.





China will boost its defense budget for 2011 ~ link
File image of a Chinese submarine, on 23 April 2009 China's military power is keeping pace with its growing economic dominance
China is to increase its defence budget in 2011, amid fears in the region that its military might is growing. Spending will increase by 12.7% to 601.1bn yuan ($91.5bn; £56.2bn) up from 532.1bn yuan last year, officials said.

Many analysts say China's actual spending on defence is far higher than the government reports. The announcement comes a day ahead of the annual National People's Congress, at which the Communist Party will outline its five-year plan.
 


Israeli airstrike targets central Gaza ~ link Israeli warplanes struck a car in central Gaza Friday morning causing no injuries, witnesses said. Locals said Israeli fighter jets fired two missiles near the An-Nuseirat refugee camp, destroying a jeep belonging to a resistance fighter.

Many Israeli drones were hovering over Gaza at the time of the raid, residents said.



Is the Anglosphere driving militant Islam? ~ link ~ Yes, if by Anglosphere you mean the global banking cartel/families.  You have to have an enemy to have wars, and wars are very profitable you know.  Stirling

Bail Out Europe's Banks? ~ link ~ Good article, take the time to read it all at the link, if you can.  Stirling     
The German magazine Der Spiegel has turned to an American economist to bang the drums for further bank reliquification (see article excerpt above). Obviously the US$50 trillion that Western powers have apparently dropped into the world's economy has not done the trick. We know this to be to true as well because of certain elite estimates floating around the blogosphere that the world (including the developing world) will need US$100 trillion or more over the next decade to ensure economic progress.
 
There is no way that the world is going to find US$100 trillion in its back pocket. The Anglo-American power elite can only be counting on one occurrence – the advent of a rationalized world currency (the bancor) along with an International Monetary Fund empowered to act as a central bank printing fiat money at will. We just commented on the advent of global money yesterday in our article Will Euro Failure Usher in World Currency?

In this article we want to analyze an interview that economist Barry Eichengreen gave to Der Spiegel. It is somewhat disturbing in the sense that it is ploddingly predictable. But in reading it and isolating its arguments, one can see how far the conversation has traveled on the blogosphere; the meretricious economic paradigm of the 20th century established with such tenacity by the power elite sounds increasingly na├»ve in the 21st century, given the crush of current events and the information available on the ‘Net to anyone who chooses to read it.

A corollary to the meme of the infallible central bank (printing money-from-nothing) is the certainty that the banking system itself, the distribution arm of central banks if you will, is inevitably, a sacred necessity. Throughout the world from central to South America, from Europe to Africa and everywhere else, the downtowns of major metropolises are crammed with individuated banks. There are in some cases more banks than fast food places.

This banking bubble is perfectly predictable because banks ARE the biggest bubble in the world. Central banks will never let their distribution arm fail. It is this argument that Eichengreen is making in the Der Spiegel interview without saying so in so many words. It is not even a concept that is up for discussion. There is no head-scratching over HOW banks became undercapitalized. There is only the assumption – a nearly religious one – that banks need to be recapitalized, especially in Europe.


Watch out Africa - The World Bank has a 'Plan' ~ link ~ It is truly astonishing that in the 21st century the World Bank – which has inflicted ruin on nation-states across the globe – can confidently propose a pan-continental plan (see excerpt above) for one of the world's largest and most diverse regions without receiving even a modicum of pushback. Perhaps it is merely the predictability with which the World Bank approaches its destructive mandate that reduces debate.
 
In any event, the current strategy that the World Bank is proposing for Africa is in keeping with the larger economic illiteracy that informs Western world-spanning institutions generally. The World Bank is an agent of the Anglo-American power elite. Its real job is one of neo-colonialism. It propagates Anglo-American power by supporting "governance" – the various appurtenances of developing nation-states that are supposed to ensure that "investments" are implemented in the intended manner.



Will Euro failure usher in World Currency? ~ link
t

 
The Telegraph's Ambrose Evans-Pritchard has published one of his usual insightful analyses on the upcoming difficulties the Irish will face in renegotiating debt payments to prop up failing Irish banks (see article excerpt above). Irish bank bonds are held by German and French banks, among others, and there has been overwhelming pressure placed on Ireland ‘s government to borrow money, raise taxes and cut expenses so as to ensure the ailing banks do not founder entirely.
 
The stresses placed on the Irish economy and Irish taxpayers in particular are tremendous. Iceland chose not to support its insolvent banks and as a result the Icelandic economy has show some improvement; the Irish economy still lags badly and there is no expectation that it will much improve; in fact it is likely to end in a kind of national bankruptcy or popular rebellion.

Hi- many thanks for your efforts and your well documented articles with a clear visibility of insight. All these years have I been reading-almost on a daily basis, so to say- your comments.

.

Time has gone down the tube- hope has vanished. Although some believe not- the sheeples have no clue and a few tries to grasp onto that last hope that HE will return must I admit this not to be likely anymore.

“Will there be faith on earth”- I do ask you Sir, is there faith on earth? “Jesus Christ” ask you that! As in the bible foretold- only ten will be asked. I can tell from my knowledge that almost all have been asked to give statement. To my knowledge has none answered in the required code that the bible did clearly express to be visible understood as the End Time has come. I cannot understand that so many have read the bible and cannot understand that someone is likely to ask that question at beforehand. It may be a crazy way to tell outright what is hidden from plain sight- someone had to ask that question before HE would eventually return. All around in the Internet has that question been sent out- addressed onto ten alone. I can clearly understand that such a question must be seen as if a madman would be around asking such an important and coded message. What is Internet more than a coded “visible” message with a translation code to show a visible computer screen message. Only a madman could ask such an important question- only a madman would even consider giving an answer. The others were clearly no madmen or madwomen.

This civilization was not the first that had proven not to have madmen or madwomen- so many civilizations have been erased from HIS sight due to the fact that they gave no answer.
This one has so little time left- all these little children never to be born. Marriage is about to have children- not about having a feast! Marriage supper is about to sit at the table having there a family of a husband, wife and their children chatting about love. This was not as the Great Deluges happened! Only a madman, madwoman would ever consider having a family in these days- I am certain that this was why HE erased them all.
