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.

How Libya's revolt has stalled ~ link ~ Good article, take the time to read it all at the link.  Stirling     

At the beating heart of the uprising, in Benghazi, Libya's rebels are trying to kickstart a revolution that has stalled less than halfway to the capital. Throughout the sacked city that spawned the revolt, the euphoria of victory is steadily becoming a distant memory. Routine has set into a place that two weeks ago was flush with hope and opportunity. After ousting a dictator of 42 years in less than a weekend, anything seemed possible here. For a while.

Shops are now open, streets are teeming and people are again talking about the grind of daily life. Heady predictions of a glorious march to Tripoli have been silenced.

A week is a long time in Libya's revolution. Seven days ago the narrative was of a rebel advance almost to Colonel Gaddafi's doorstep. The town of Zawiyah — reached by journalists last Sunday – was in the hands of the opposition, which had little more than two ancient tanks, a handful of armoured cars and a pair of anti-aircraft guns.

In reality, the story of "the advance" was always something of an illusion, more real on paper than on the ground. True, the opposition holds much of the east, but the towns that have been ticked off one by one in the country's west and around the capital have been a very different issue — Zawiyah foremost among them.

For these are places that have not so much been captured by an opposition motoring on Tripoli but have fallen to the part of the population opposing Gaddafi.

And while they have been presented as part of a joined-up whole, in the west these opposition centres have been largely isolated from events in the east, unable to be reinforced or resupplied from the main effort in and around Benghazi.

Closer to Gaddafi's centre of power – and with support less unanimous – the opposition's grip in these places has sometimes seemed tenuous at best.

Libya unrest: UK "diplomatic" team released by rebels ~ link ~ It seems that NATO, and especially the USA, UK, and France are very intent on getting involved in the developing civil war in Libya and on the side of the rebels.   I think that the crazy old fox Gaddifi has thrown a major monkey wrench into the planned 'Domino Revolutions' and they want him gone quickly.  Stirling      
Royal Navy frigate HMS Cumberland, pictured 28 February The British team left Benghazi on board the Royal Navy frigate, HMS Cumberland
A British diplomatic team, including six soldiers believed to be SAS, have been freed two days after being detained in eastern Libya. The men are understood to have left Benghazi bound for Malta on board the Royal Navy frigate HMS Cumberland. It is thought the special forces soldiers were with a diplomat who was making contact with opposition leaders.

Witnesses said the men were detained by rebels after arriving near Benghazi in a helicopter early on Friday morning. They were held after going to an agricultural compound when Libyan security guards found they were carrying arms, ammunition, explosives, maps and passports from at least four different nationalities, witnesses told the BBC.

Egypt protesters attacked by 'armed civilians' in Cairo ~ link ~ The "more things change, the more they stay the same", seems to be the true nature of Egypt.  Stirling    
Protesters in Cairo, 6 Mar Egyptian protesters run during clashes with men in plain clothes
On Sunday, men in plain clothes armed with swords and petrol bombs confronted the pro-democracy activists after soldiers dispersed a Cairo rally they were holding to demand reform of the security services, eyewitnesses say. "The army started firing in the air to disperse us," Mohammed Fahmy told Reuters news agency. "We tried to run away but we were met by 200 thugs in plain clothes carrying sharp weapons."
Mr Fahmy put the number of protesters at 2,000.

Dismantling the security apparatus has been one of the key demands of the protest movement, the BBC's Magdi Abdelhadi in Cairo says. The events of the weekend have been described as the Egyptian storming of the Bastille, he says. The secret police apparatus was the nerve centre of the Mubarak government. Activists who stormed the Cairo headquarters told the BBC they had found evidence of a parallel state structure that monitored all aspects of life in Egypt. 

America's War on Libya ~ link ~ Since WW II alone, America waged direct and proxy wars against Korea, Southeast Asia, Central and South American countries, African ones, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, and now Egypt and Libya. One down, one to go, besides dozens of attempted and successful coups, as well as numerous other interventions to control world markets, resources and people. Imperial America doesn’t sleep. It plots, deciding where next to strike.

Despite popular passion for democratic change, uprisings in Egypt and Libya were externally orchestrated, funded and armed by Washington to replace one despot with another. Democracy won’t be tolerated. It’s never been at home.
America’s media go along, especially when Washington goes to war or plans one. In the lead: The New York Times, the nation’s equivalent of an official information and propaganda ministry, posing as independent journalism.

It’s February 28 editorial headlined, “Qaddafi’s Crimes and Fantasies” made baseless accusations, then called on the International Criminal Court to investigate potential war crimes. Indeed it should – against America and Western co-conspirators, not Libya, for instigating regional aggression, a reality The Times ignored, besides previously against Afghanistan, Iraq, and other US targets.

Rebels battle Gaddafi offensive ~ link ~A day of fierce fighting in Libya has seen rebels trying to hold back an intensified counter-offensive by forces loyal to Col Muammar Gaddafi. Rebels said they repelled government forces from Zawiya, west of Tripoli, after intense fighting. Further east, government troops fought their way into Misrata using tanks and artillery, before being forced back. Helicopter gunships strafed Bin Jawad, prompting a retreat by rebels who had captured the coastal town on Saturday. 

Virtually unknown in the West: Libya's water resources ~ link ~   By 1996 the Great Man-Made River Project had reached one of its final stages, the gushing forth of sweet unpolluted water to the homes and gardens of the citizens of Libya's capital Tripoli. Louis Farrakhan, who took part in the opening ceremony of this important stage of the project, described the Great Man-Made River as "another miracle in the desert." Speaking at the inauguration ceremony to an audience that included Libyans and many foreign guests, Col. Qadhafi said the project "was the biggest answer to America... who accuse us of being concerned with terrorism."

The Great Man-Made River, as the largest water transport project ever undertaken, has been described as the "eighth wonder of the world". It carries more than five million cubic metres of water per day across the desert to coastal areas, vastly increasing the amount of arable land. The total cost of the huge project is expected to exceed $25 billion (US).

Consisting of a network of pipes buried underground to eliminate evaporation, four meters in diameter, the project extends for four thousand kilometres far deep into the desert. All material is locally engineered and manufactured. Underground water is pumped from 270 wells hundreds of meters deep into reservoirs that feed the network. The cost of one cubic meter of water equals 35 cents. The cubic meter of desalinized water is $3.75. Scientists estimate the amount of water to be equivalent to the flow of 200 years of water in the Nile River. 

The goal of the Libyan Arab people, embodied in the Great Man-Made River project, is to make Libya a source of agricultural abundance, capable of producing adequate food and water to supply its own needs and to share with neighboring countries. In short, the River is literally Libya's 'meal ticket' to self-sufficiency. 

 Self-sufficiency?!? Absolutely Not Allowed. Banksters don't like that sort of thing one bit.

This project has been in the works for many years. Have you ever heard of it? We had not until today.

Food prices hit high as oil rises ~ link ~ There is an inter-connect between the BP Oil Disaster, the global banking families (who control Big Oil), the global climate changes resulting from the Death of the Loop Current, the 'Domino Revolutions', further economic and political chaos, World War III, etc.  We are in the End Times.  Satan's time is almost up, and he wants to kill off the human race who he has not been able to fully turn away from God (and he has his minions hard at work).  But he will fail in that also and we know this from the last book of the Bible.   Stirling       
Prices rising: The ongoing turmoil in the Middle Eastern and North African oil producing nations is driving food prices up to record levels.

WORLD food prices have hit new records and oil price spikes could push them even higher, the UN food agency warned as unrest in the Middle East and North Africa hits markets. The Food Price Index, which monitors average monthly price changes for a variety of key staples, rose to 236 points in February from 231 points in January, the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said. It was the highest level since FAO began monitoring prices in 1990.

"Unexpected oil price spikes could further exacerbate an already precarious situation in food markets," David Hallam, director of the Rome-based FAO's trade and market division, said. "This adds even more uncertainty concerning the price outlook just as plantings for crops in some of the major growing regions are about to start."

Crude prices pushed higher Thursday amid fighting in oil-rich Libya. New York's main contract, light sweet crude oil for April delivery, rose to $102.56 and Brent North Sea crude for April was up at $116.65.

Saudis mobilize thousands of troops to quell growing revolt ~ link ~  
Saudi security forces in armoured vehicles responding to the threat of a Shia uprising this week

Saudi security forces in armoured vehicles responding to the threat of a Shia uprising this week
Saudi Arabia was yesterday drafting up to 10,000 security personnel into its north-eastern Shia Muslim provinces, clogging the highways into Dammam and other cities with busloads of troops in fear of next week's "day of rage" by what is now called the "Hunayn Revolution".

Saudi Arabia's worst nightmare – the arrival of the new Arab awakening of rebellion and insurrection in the kingdom – is now casting its long shadow over the House of Saud. Provoked by the Shia majority uprising in the neighbouring Sunni-dominated island of Bahrain, where protesters are calling for the overthrow of the ruling al-Khalifa family, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is widely reported to have told the Bahraini authorities that if they do not crush their Shia revolt, his own forces will. 

The opposition is expecting at least 20,000 Saudis to gather in Riyadh and in the Shia Muslim provinces of the north-east of the country in six days, to demand an end to corruption and, if necessary, the overthrow of the House of Saud. Saudi security forces have deployed troops and armed police across the Qatif area – where most of Saudi Arabia's Shia Muslims live – and yesterday would-be protesters circulated photographs of armoured vehicles and buses of the state-security police on a highway near the port city of Dammam.


Ireland's incoming government to stick to deficit plan ~ link ~ The new government has just crapped all over the Irish people!  The people clearly wanted the global banksters rip-off to be ended.  The banks got in trouble, deliberately by doing totally insane things, and then got the corrupt Irish political class to agree to taking on the debt of the private banks and letting the EU and IMF in effect take over Irish sovereignty.  There is no excuse for this!  The new government should simply say that they are overturning the old government's arrangements, as they were formed on the basis of corruption and economic treason against the people of Ireland and the Irish State.  This is the type of evil crap that causes revolutions.  You have an election, but the corrupt political bums totally ignore the people's wishes and demands.  The people of Ireland should NOT stand for this.  This is a major win for the global banking cartel and a major loss for the Irish people.  Stirling      
Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny in Helsinki, Finland - 4 March 2011 
The Republic of Ireland's new government will stick to its predecessor's budget targets as set out at the time of its 85bn euro (£73bn, $119bn) EU/IMF rescue package. But the country's incoming prime minister, Enda Kenny, has also reiterated he wants to renegotiate the strict terms attached.

LibDems urges Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds Bank shares giveaway ~ link ~ I am glad to see that the LibDems have grown some balls!  THE PUBLIC HAS ALREADY PAID FOR THE BANKS SHARES!  Give the stock to the public!  Let the banksters chew on that!   Stirling      
Senior Liberal Democrats want the government to give away billions of pounds of its shares in Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds Banking Group to the general public. The radical idea would see most of its stake in the banks shared between 46 million adults on the electoral roll.

The government spent £65.8bn buying shares in the banking giants. It owns 84% of RBS and 41% of Lloyds. The idea is set out by Stephen Williams, Liberal Democrat MP for Bristol West, in a pamphlet for the think tank Centre Forum.
He said: "There is danger that when the banks return to the private sector, it is business as usual. There is a general feeling in this country that we need to get something positive in return for the bailout. "This plan would recoup the public's investment and allow the taxpayer to get the benefit from any increased value in the banks." At current prices, every adult would receive shares worth just under £1,000 pounds. 

Rare King James Bible found in Wiltshire village church ~ link ~ The first Earl of Stirling was one of the translators that King James VI of Scotland (who was also James I of England) recruited to do the translation from Latin into English.  Stirling      
King James Bible The pages of 400-year-old Bible were trimmed by a priest in the 19th Century

A rare original King James Bible has been discovered on a shelf in a Wiltshire church.

There are fewer than 200 original printings of the King James version known to exist. And it is believed that the rediscovered Bible is one of the few remaining editions printed in 1611.

Fine Gael and Labour back Irish leaders' coalition deal ~ linkThe two largest parliamentary parties in the Republic of Ireland have backed their leaders' decision to form a coalition government. Delegates at the Labour Party conference on Sunday voted to enter government with Fine Gael. The Fine Gael parliamentary party unanimously endorsed the planned programme for government, in a separate move.

It followed six days of negotiations by the parties. Earlier, the leaders of the two parties said they had agreed to form a new coalition government. Talks between the centre-right Fine Gael and the centre-left Labour Party focused on how to tackle the deficit and public sector cuts. Last week's election saw Fianna Fail roundly defeated over its handling of Ireland's economic crisis. Fine Gael fell short of a majority with 76 seats while Labour took 37 seats.

Marine LePen poll rating shock for French politics ~ link ~ This shows that the people really want dramatic change, something outside of the norm in politics.  Of course, by the time of the general election the hidden powers, the global banking cartel, manage to use their monopoly over the mainstream news media, and their ability to steal massive numbers of votes, to throw the election to one of their puppets.  Generally, what the global banksters try to achieve is a two or three 'horse race' with them in reality owning all of the 'horses' in the race, so that they always come out the winner.  As long as the public allows these global evil parasites to get away with printing and controlling all the money they will always manage to put their bought-and-paid-for political whores into office.  Stirling     

An opinion poll suggesting far-right leader Marine Le Pen could win the first round of next year's presidential election has caused a shock in France. The survey for Le Parisien newspaper puts the National Front leader, who took over from her father Jean-Marie in January, ahead of all other candidates.

Over $1.2 TRILLION spent on the military while the rest of us fight over crumbs - with video ~ link ~
There’s been a joke going around the labor protests.   It goes something like this:
A union member, a CEO and a Tea Party member are sitting at a table with 12 cookies. The CEO grabs 11, turns to the Tea Partier and says “The Union’s out to take your cookie!”
I’ve been thinking that the joke applies pretty well to another situation. For instance, the military. Our military spending grabs 11 cookies and leaves us all battling over the 12th.

Christopher Hellman at TomDispatch added up all the military-related spending in the budget and came to a startling number: for fiscal year 2012, the actual military budget is something like $1.2 trillion dollars.
Trillion with a T.
Just to put that in perspective for a second, a million seconds is 12 days.  A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.
So after all that cash is gone, what are we left with? Not a whole heck of a lot for the rest of us. “Discretionary” spending is nearly 40% of the budget, but if Hellman’s numbers are accurate, that $1.2 trillion eats up nearly 90% of discretionary funds, leaving just 10% for the rest of us. (That doesn’t include mandatory spending on things like Social Security and Medicare, which are separate.)
