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 

'Making the Chicken Run' ~ link ~ A very good article that you should take the time to read.  Stirling    

David Icke - The Law of Attraction and the Fork in the Road ~ link ~ A series of mostly short videos that make you think about the nature of things.  Stirling    

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.

 Libyan War
It appears likely now, that NATO will begin a Libyan War in the next few days.  This will have massive consequences, as yet unknown, upon the World.  I will try to give the best analysis that I can of these unfolding events.  Stirling     

Libyan jets on diplomatic sorties as No-Fly looms ~ link ~ Has anyone wondered if crazy fox Gaddafi has invested in a secret Advanced Biological Warfare capacity(the 'poor man's nukcs')???  Such a program is much easier to hide that a nuclear program (he gave up his nuclear weapons program several years ago to get in the good graces of the West), but can kill hundreds of millions.  What if Gaddafi, who lost a child to an American bombing raid, does not trust the 'West' and has prepared a "trump card" for use if he is attacked.  It would be 'in character' for him to do so.  We are rushing headlong into another war and no one seem too interested in stopping the insanity!  Stirling       

Malta 'will NOT be military base' for upcoming Libyan War ~ link ~ Foreign Minister Tonio Borg insisted this evening that Malta would not be used as a military base for actions against Libya or any other country because that was forbidden by the Constitution.

David Cameron and Barack Obama plan 'full spectrum' of action on Libya ~ link ~ Of course they do.  Their masters, the global banking families, desire war/debt and more war.  If the American and British put up with this foolish crap, they are destroying what is left of their future.  Stirling     

David Cameron and President Barack Obama have announced a “full spectrum” of action on Libya as Col Muammar Gaddafi’s forces pounded two oil towns in an effort to bring the rebellion against the regime under control.


We will not let Gaddafi murder his people, says Cameron ~ link ~ So we should support his opponents, who are killing their own people???  Stirling

One dies in Copt - Muslin clash in Cairo ~ link ~ At least one person has died in clashes between Coptic Christians and Muslims in Cairo, Egyptian officials say.

Reports say the victim was a Coptic Christian. Fifteen people were injured. The violence began during a protest by Copts against last week's burning of a church. Witnesses say the army fired into the air to disperse the crowds.


Wheat planting falls to 4-year low in Russia amid export ban ~ link ~ Russia’s ban on grain exports means the country’s farmers will plant the fewest wheat fields in four years, another sign that global prices will keep rising.

Wheat plantings in the country, once the second-biggest exporter, will drop 2.3 percent to 64.2 million acres for this year’s crop, according to the median in a Bloomberg survey of as many as 19 producers, traders and analysts. Farmers can’t plant more because the ban imposed after last summer’s drought is limiting farm income. Diesel was 30 percent higher than a year earlier in January and OAO Acron, Russia’s third-biggest nitrogen fertilizer producer, raised some prices by more than 12 percent for the first half.

The 84 million-metric-ton grain harvest anticipated in the survey is 1 million tons below what the government says it needs to consider lifting the seven-month-old export ban. The absence of Russian supplies comes as the U.S. says global grain inventories will drop 13 percent, riots topple leaders in Tunisia and Egypt and governments hoard food.
“The situation in Russia is absolutely crucial,” said Sudakshina Unnikrishnan, a London-based commodities analyst at Barclays Capital, the most accurate wheat-price forecaster in the first two quarters of 2010, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. With global stockpiles reduced, “we’d be starting a year off on a much weaker footing,” she said. 

Will the Day of Rage in Saudi Arabia on March 11 send the price of oil into unprecedented territory ~ link ~ The price of oil is shaping up to be the number one economic story of 2011, and right now the eyes of the investing world are closely watching the developing situation in Saudi Arabia.  All of the other recent Middle East revolutions have been organized on the Internet, and now all over Facebook and Twitter there are calls for a "Day of Rage" in Saudi Arabia on March 11.  The Saudi monarchy is attempting to head off any protests by promising to give $37 billion in "benefits" to the people and by publicly proclaiming that all political demonstrations are specifically banned.  In addition, the Saudi government is stationing thousands of security forces at various potential "hot spots" around the country.  So far similar measures have not done much to quell unrest in other nations in the Middle East, but Saudi Arabia will be a true test of the revolutionary fervor that is sweeping the region.  The Saudis have a long history of brutally repressing their own people.  They simply do not mess around.  So a revolution in Saudi Arabia will not be nearly as "easy" as it was in Tunisia, Egypt or Libya.  

However, if a revolution does sweep across Saudi Arabia, it is going to send the price of oil into unprecedented territory.  Saudi Arabia is the number one exporter of oil in the world, and if their oil fields get shut down even for a little while it is going to have a dramatic effect on the global economy.  With the world already on the verge of a major sovereign debt crisis, the last thing it needs is for the price of oil to start soaring into the stratosphere.

Right now the investing world is not sure what to think about all of this, and financial markets do not like uncertainty.  One piece of really bad news could send markets all over the globe crashing down.

Propaganda sways US opinion of Libya - with video ~ link ~ This works because most Americans are trained to think inside the box; to accept whatever crap the mainstream news media dishes out without thinking about it; to not think in an analytical way; to be far too concerned about television and worthless 'celebrities' than world events that could have a profound effect on their very lives.  Stirling    

Documents: Egypt Security Bombed Churches, Resort in False Flag Operations ~ link ~ Just days after the Egyptian protesters attacked the state’s internal security headquarters and rescued reems of documents about Mubarak-era crimes that were about to be destroyed, some of the dirtiest such deeds are starting to come to light. And even for the notorious Mubarak regime, they’re surprisingly bad.

Ahmadinejad flexes has muscle on Libya ~ link ~ Ahmadinejad appeared for a public speech in the province of Lorestan and told the crowd “[Bush] used a deception named September 11 to prepare the ground to invade Iraq and Afghanistan," adding “be warned that if you intervene militarily one more time, in any of the countries in North Africa or the Middle East, the regional nations will rise and dig the graves of your soldiers,” referring to the United States.

In his fiery speech, Ahmadinejad told the audience that all of the Middle East dictators are selected and backed by the United States.
"Today, they [the West] claim they are confronting dictators... [But] everywhere in the world, in all of the Muslim world, in all of the Middle East, wherever there is a dictator, he is backed by them," said Ahmadinejad.
"And now they come and say they want to support the people... but your plans have been derailed... today no one recognises your claim of supporting the people."

Wars, Rumors Of Wars, Skyrocketing Oil Prices And Global Economic Chaos - Why Is All Of This Happening?  ~ link
Wars Rumors Of Wars Skyrocketing Oil Prices And Global Economic Chaos Why Is All Of This Happening
Did anyone out there anticipate that 2011 would be such a wild year?  The year is barely over two months old and we have already seen multiple civil wars erupt, rumors of more wars all over the mainstream media (potentially even including the United States), riots and revolutions breaking out all over the globe, oil prices soaring into the stratosphere and chaos on global financial markets.  So why is all of this happening?  Is all of this one big coincidence or is there a reason why we are witnessing such global chaos right now?  Is it just coincidence that revolutions have broken out in over a dozen countries in the Middle East all at the same time?  Is it just a coincidence that global prices for oil, food and precious metals are all skyrocketing?  Is it just a coincidence that world financial markets suddenly seem more vulnerable than at any time since 2008?  Looking at what is going on in the world right now, it is very tempting to use the phrase "a perfect storm" to describe it.  Unfortunately, this "perfect storm" is very likely to plunge the global economy into yet another financial collapse if it continues to get even worse.
After decades of relative stability, the Middle East has erupted in chaos in 2011.  In the post-World War 2 era, we have never seen a time when there have been so many major internal revolutions all at once.  All of these simultaneous revolutions are driving the price of oil rapidly upwards.

Unfortunately, the global situation looks like it may become even more heated. The calls for military action against Libya are rapidly reaching a crescendo.

The U.S. Senate has unanimously passed a resolution calling for the UN Security Council to impose a no-fly zone over Libya, and many members of Congress are openly declaring that the U.S. and NATO should take unilateral action no matter what the UN ultimately decides.

Russia, China seen as hard sell on Libya No-Fly Zone ~ link ~ Britain and France are preparing a U.N. Security Council resolution authorizing a no-fly zone over Libya, and diplomats said on Monday it will be tough but not impossible to get Russia and China's support.

Foreign Secretary William Hague said in London that Britain was working with other countries on a draft. Diplomats in Paris and New York said the work was being done by Britain and France in close consultation with the United States and Germany.

Hague told the British parliament there were "credible reports" that Libyan government forces had used helicopter gunships against civilians as supporters of Muammar Gaddafi try to put down a revolt against his 41-year rule.

Morocco's King Mohammed pledges constitutional reform ~ link ~ In his first speech since last month's protests across the nation, the king said that "individual and collective liberties will be expanded".

Despite the street rallies - in the wake of those in Tunisia and Egypt - the king has refused to give up power.
Protesters want some of the king's powers to be handed over to a newly elected government. 

Libya No-Fly Zone a UN decision, says Hillary Clinton ~ link ~ Any decision to impose a no-fly zone over Libya should be made by the UN and not by Washington, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said. Mrs Clinton said it was important such a move came from the Libyan people, rather than being a US-led effort.

Calls for military intervention are growing as pro-Gaddafi forces bombard areas held by Libyan rebels. Meanwhile, Col Gaddafi has made a defiant speech on Libyan TV, labelling rebels and opposition leaders traitors.

Heavy snowstorms have put the Greek capital, Athens, in chaos, disrupting transportation with a 15km overnight traffic jam.

Some parts of Athens experienced power failure, while ferry services were also stopped, the state-funded BBC reported on Tuesday.

Officials have warned citizens to remain home unless there is a need for absolutely necessary journeys.

USS Ronald Reagan Super-Carrier Battle Group to joint exercises with South Korea ~ link ~ Keeping the future Korean War Theater of WWIII warm.  Stirling

The United States says a naval strike group led by the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan has entered the western Pacific Ocean and will join an ongoing military exercise with South Korea.

The U.S. military said Wednesday that the giant carrier is accompanied by a guided missile cruiser and a destroyer squadron. The ships will join in the annual Foal Eagle exercise which began early last week involving about 200,000 South Korean and 13,000 U.S. troops.

South Korea has described the drill as a routine defense exercise, but North Korea says it will respond to any provocation by turning South Korea's capital, Seoul, into a "sea of fire." 
 Intelligence report links PKK to Israel ~ link

A new classified intelligence report has disclosed links between Israel and the Kurdish militant group, the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

According to the report presented at Turkey's National Security Council (MGK ) meeting on February 24, the PKK has been forging new ties with Israel, and Kurdish militants are receiving training from Mossad officials, Today's Zaman newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The MGK also stated that it has footage from an interview in which PKK leader Murat Karayilan says his group collaborated with Tel Aviv to facilitate the attack launched by Israeli forces on a Turkish aid ship bound for the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Israeli military attacked the Freedom Flotilla in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea on May 31, 2010, killing nine Turkish citizens on board the Turkish-flagged MV Mavi Marmara, and injuring about 50 others, who were part of a group of relief workers and activists on the six-ship convoy.

Israel also arrested and later released nearly 700 activists from 42 countries that were on board the ships of the Freedom Flotilla, which was attempting to break the siege of Gaza to deliver 10,000 tons of humanitarian relief aid to the people of the territory.

Meanwhile, a senior Turkish security official has said that Israel has intensified its contact with the PKK, especially after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to Lebanon in November 2010.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by much of the international community, including Turkey, Iran, the United States, and European Union member states.

Over 40,000 people have lost their lives since the PKK launched its armed campaign against Ankara in 1984.

Global Economy?  23 Facts which prove that Globalism is pushing the Standard of Living of the Middle Class down to Third World levels ~ link ~  
Global Economy 23 Facts Which Prove That Globalism Is Pushing The Standard Of Living Of The Middle Class Down To Third World Levels
From now on, whenever you hear the term "the global economy" you should immediately equate it with the destruction of the U.S. middle class.  Over the past several decades, the American economy has been slowly but surely merged into the emerging one world economic system.  Unfortunately for the middle class, much of the rest of the world does not have the same minimum wage laws and worker protections that we do.  Therefore, the massive global corporations that now dominate our economy are able to pay workers in other countries slave labor wages and import the products that they make into the United States to compete with products made by "expensive" American workers.  This has resulted in a mass exodus of manufacturing facilities and jobs from the United States.
But without good, high paying jobs the U.S. middle class cannot continue to be the U.S middle class.  The only thing that the vast majority of Americans have to offer in the economic marketplace is their labor.  Sadly, that labor has now been dramatically devalued.  American workers now must directly compete for jobs with millions upon millions of workers on the other side of the world that toil away for 15 hours a day at slave labor wages.  This is causing jobs to leave the United States at an almost unbelievable rate, and it is putting tremendous downward pressure on the wages of millions of jobs that are still in the United States.

So when you hear terms such as "globalization" and "the global economy", it is important to keep in mind that those are code words for the emerging one world economic system that is systematically wiping out the U.S. middle class.
A one world labor pool means that the standard of living for the U.S. middle class will continue falling toward the standard of living in the third world.

We keep hearing about how the U.S. economy is being transformed from a "manufacturing economy" into a "service economy".  But "service jobs" are generally much lower paying than "manufacturing jobs".  The number of good paying "middle class jobs" in the United States is rapidly decreasing.  So how can the U.S. middle class survive in such an environment?

What makes things even worse for manufacturers in the United States is that other nations often impose a "value-added tax" of 20 percent or more on U.S. goods entering their shores and yet most of the time we do not reciprocate with similar taxes.

But whenever someone mentions how incredibly unfair and unbalanced our trade agreements with other nations are, they are immediately labeled as a "protectionist".

Well, someone should be looking out for U.S. interests when it comes to trade, because the current state of the global economy is ripping the U.S. middle class to shreds.
Right now, the United States consumes far more wealth than it produces.  This nation buys much, much more from the rest of the world than they buy from us.  This is called a "trade deficit", and it is one of the most important economic statistics.  The U.S. runs a massive trade deficit every single year, and it is wiping out our national wealth, it is destroying our surviving industries and it is absolutely shredding middle class America.

We cannot allow tens of thousands of factories to continue to leave the United States.  We cannot allow millions of jobs to continue to be "outsourced" and "offshored".  We cannot allow tens of billions of dollars of our national wealth to continue to be transferred into foreign hands every single month.

The truth is that the global economy is bad for America.  The following are 23 facts which prove that globalism is pushing the standard of living of the middle class down to third world levels....

You call this an Economic Recovery?  44 Million Americans on Food Stamps and 10 Other Reasons why the economy is simply NOT getting better ~ link  
You Call This An Economic Recovery 44 Millions Americans On Food Stamps and 10 Other Reasons Why The Economy Is Simply Not Getting Better
When Barack Obama, the Federal Reserve and the mainstream media tell us that we are in the middle of an economic recovery, is that supposed to be some kind of sick joke?  According to newly released numbers, over 44 million Americans are now on food stamps.  That is a new all-time record and that number is 13.1% higher than it was just one year ago.  So how many Americans have to go on food stamps before we can all finally agree that the U.S. economy is dying?  50 million?  60 million?  All of us?  The food stamp program is the modern equivalent of the old bread lines.  More than one out of every seven Americans now depends on the federal government for food.  Oh, but haven't you heard?  The economy is showing dramatic improvement.  Corporate profits are up.  The stock market is soaring.  Happy days are here again.
It just seems inconceivable that anyone can claim that the economy is improving when the number of Americans on food stamps continues to set a brand new record every single month.  But the food stamp program is not the only indicator that the economy is still having massive problems.  The following are 10 more reasons why the U.S. economy is simply not getting any better....

To sum it up- the invasion is on and the troops will never arrive. It will surely be the greatest mistake ever done. Nevertheless have so many fallen to a propaganda ploy- the mighty army will never arrive. It is so sad but things will never be the same once these troops have vanished. Once again has Custer underestimated the cunning and deceiving anarchists that are behind the scenery of this divine comedy called End of Time!
