World War III Has Begun - It's the first Asymmetric War long awaited by Pentagon Think Tanks ~ link ~ This is a most interesting article.  However, I disagree that events will remain totally asymmetrical.  That is way too one-sided of an strategic analysis for me.  Currently events are clearly asymmetrical warfare, however, events will soon become a cornucopia of asymmetrical and symmetrical warfare and then move onto more symmetrical Twenty-first Century warfare with horrific death numbers.   Stirling     

Iran test-fires state-of-the-art torpedoes - with video ~ link ~ The Iranians have fired some of their domestic copies of the Russian VA-111 Shkval supercavitation (rocket) torpedo.  The Iranian version is named the Hoot, which means Whale.  This is one very nasty weapon, it produces a bubble of hot gas in front of the 'torpedo' and the weapon actually flies through the bubble.  In a sense, it has thrust on both ends; just enough in the front to produce the bubble constantly during its 'run to target', but a powerful rear thrust.  In effect, it is a underwater missile!  It is several times faster than any normal torpedo.  Officially, the US Navy does not have a good defense against this.  But I suspect that our boys have not been asleep on this one.  If one to several are fired at a ship, unless they are decoyed away or destroyed in their 'run', they will blow the hell out of whatever they hit.  However, they have to be placed within range, either by a sub, a surface ship, or by a aircraft (or in theory via a missile launch from shore or from a ship/sub/aircraft).  This is one case of the Iranians having a true state-of-the-art weapon system that western navies do not yet have (at least publicly acknowledged to have).   Stirling      

Iran's naval forces have test-fired new classes of domestically-built torpedoes on the fourth day of the ongoing Velayat 90 drill in the Strait of Hormuz and Sea of Oman, Press TV reports.

On Saturday, December 24, Iran's Navy launched a massive 10-day Velayat 90 naval exercise, covering an area stretching from the east of the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden.

Different classes of submarines, including Tareq and Qadir, the newest ground-to-sea missile systems and torpedoes have been employed in the maneuvers. 

Qatar builds Sunni Intervention Force of Libyan and Iraqi terrorists against Assad ~ link ~   Make no mistake, a General Middle East War is coming.  That war will involved Weapons of Mass Destruction on all sides, will close the Strait of Hormuz and that will destroy what is left of the global economy.  The war in the Middle East will almost certainly become a global war, the Third World War, Armageddon.  It is designed to kill most of the World's population and to allow the globalists to restructure human society into their demonic slave-state, their long-sought New World Order.   Stirling       

The Qatar oil emirate, encouraged by its successful participation in the campaign to overthrow Libya's Muammar Qaddafi, has established a Sunni Arab intervention force to expedite the drive for Syrian President Bashar Assad's ouster, debkafile's military sources report. The new highly mobile force boosts the anti-Assad Free Syrian Army, whose numbers have jumped to 20,000 fighters, armed and funded by Qatar and now forming into military battalions and brigades at their bases in Turkey.

A force of 2,500 has been recruited up until now, our sources report. The hard core is made up of 1,000 members of the Islamic Fighting Group in Libya-IFGL, which fought Qaddafi, and 1,000 operatives of the Ansar al-Sunna, the Iraqi Islamists which carried out 15 coordinated bomb attacks in Baghdad last Thursday killing 72 people and injuring 200. Qatar has just had them airlifted from Libya and Iraq to the southern Turkish town of Antakya (Antioch) in the border province of Hatay.

Arab League in Syria: A pre-ordained conclusion ~ link ~ However, political analyst James Corbett told RT that while the observer mission is in fact lacking in credibility, it is only because conclusions will unlikely be based on facts on the ground. “The final report will be a pre-ordained conclusion that the Assad government is not doing enough to listen to the concerns of its citizens. Personally, I’m not sure what is more ridiculous about this story – the idea that the autocratic thugs of the Arab League are going to presume to pronounce on the democratic leanings of the Syrian government, or that the international community is supposed to take what they say with any sort of moral authority.” “Clearly, these are not people in a position to be lecturing on this. I think that the report has been pre-ordained, and I’d be very surprised to see that it concludes anything other than the fact that the Assad government is to blame for what’s going on in Syria right now,” Corbett said.

Iran capable of closing Hormuz Strait ~ link ~ The globalists are counting on this to finish off the existing World economy so that they can "reshape" everything during and after WWIII.   Stirling    

Amid an ongoing Iranian naval drill, a Russian newspaper says the Islamic Republic is capable of blocking the Strait of Hormuz, the main oil shipping artery in the world.

On Saturday, Iran's Navy launched the massive 10-day “Velayat 90” naval exercise. The drill covers an area stretching from the east of the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden.

Iran's decision to close the Strait of Hormuz can fundamentally threaten the prospects of global oil exports, the Russian newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta said on Tuesday.


Abbas primes West Bank for Palestinian 'Third Intifada' ~ link ~ When the General Middle East War begins in earnest, all hell will break out!   Stirling    

Israel preparing for another Gaza War ~ link ~  Like I said, all hell will break out and soon.   Stirling      

Marking the third anniversary of Israel's deadly attack on Gaza, the chief of staff of the Israeli military, Lt. General Benny Gantz, said on Tuesday that Tel Aviv will ''sooner or later'' need to launch a large-scale operation against Hamas, the democratically-elected ruler of Gaza because Tel Aviv is losing its grip on the coastal strip.  Gantz said Operation Cast Lead, which Israel launched against Gaza on December 27, 2008 and lasted for three week, had a deterrent effect on Israeli security, in which cracks were starting to show over time, forcing Israel to launch another war.  Gantz also said that Tel Aviv is looking for the right time to launch a military offensive against the Gaza Strip and that the new war ''must be initiated by Israel and must be swift and painful".

The Israeli regime waged a 22-day Christmas war on the densely populated coastal sliver in 2008 left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead including at least 300 children.  The offensive also destroyed 4,000 houses and devastated a large portion of infrastructures in the blockaded strip. Israeli military forces also targeted UN-run schools and centers.  More than 50,000 people were also displaced as a result of the three-week war.  Tel Aviv also used internationally-banned weapons, including white phosphorus bombs, against the Gazans during the three-week war.

Putin: Protesters are receiving their funding from the West ~ link ~ There are several reasons for this.  The globalists are putting pressure on Putin and his people; they are acting to delegitimize Putin in the public's image; they are laying some of the groundwork for demonizing Russia as one of the West's enemies in the coming Third World War.   Stirling      

Soros' Hand Seen in Anti-Putin Protests ~ link ~ Soros is a senior Rothschild operative.   Stirling     

Alexei Navalny, key engine behind Russian protests ~ link ~ What this mainstream news media article does NOT tell you is that Navelny is widely considered to be a Soros agent, and of course, Soros is a key operative of the Rothschild Empire.   Stirling        

A Blogger (Alexei Navalny) could start Russia's "Arab Spring"  ~ link ~ Keep in mind that the "Arab Spring" was a globalist/CIA/Mossad venture from its inception in New York City well over a year before the first event in the Middle East happened.   This is a strategic type of warfare and the Russians now see it being played out against themselves and they are PISSED about it.   Stirling      

Wall Street Journal "Determines" Russian Election a "Fraud" ~ link ~  This is part of the psyops stage of taking Russia into the coming Third World War.   Stirling    

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), going through extraordinary lengths to prove a foreign election "fraudulent," claims to have written a "computer program that downloaded 2,957 web pages posted on Russia's Central Election Commission website." They then claim they used another program to mine pages "for precinct-level data extracting outcomes for 95,228 precincts spread across 2,745 electoral commissions. " The Wall Street Journal then had "experts" in "election fraud and statistics" look at the data finding what they called, "the fingerprints of fraud."

In Wall Street Journal's article, "Russia's Dubious Vote," the authors admit that "the analysis doesn't in itself prove fraud in Russia's Dec. 4 parliamentary elections." But the WSJ then cites "local and international observers," that corroborate their findings of "fraud" with claims of ballot-box stuffing, vote falsification, and other violations. The only organization WSJ is able to cite by name, however, is US National Endowment for Democracy (NED) funded GOLOS.

In, "US Caught Meddling in Russian Elections," GOLOS was noted as being the key "observer" cited across Western media in an attempt to portray the Russian elections as "stolen," a similar ploy that has been used throughout color revolutions since the 80s and in particular during the last year of US-backed destabilization also known as the "Arab Spring." However, GOLOS owes its existence to the US government and in turn the banking oligarchs of Wall Street and London who have been trying in vain to dislodge Russia's Vladimir Putin from power for years.

US clumsily covers tracks in Russian Sedition ~ link ~ As the evidence begins to mount pointing the accusing finger at the increasingly illegitimate corporate-financier occupiers of the West's governments as having built up Russian opposition movements and being behind the current unrest filling Russia's streets, the corporate media has already started to rewrite events as they unfold.

NWO Fourth Generation War Against Russia - Dossier II ~ linkDossier I ~ link ~ These are two in-depth articles that are very important.  Take the time to read them if you want to learn what is really happening with regards to the growing election crisis in Russia and how this ties in with the coming WWIII.   Stirling

US won't brook disruption in Strait of Hormuz ~ link ~  The key question that Americans, Israelis, Saudis, and all NATO nations' peoples should be asking themselves about this western drive to war in the Middle East is Qui Bono (Who Benefits).   Neither Israel, nor Saudi Arabia, nor any other Middle East state, nor any NATO nation will benefit.  The level of destruction and global death from WMD (including Advanced Biowar) will be far too horrible for any sane nation to claim victory.  The Global Banking Cartel families want this war, want it to become WWIII in order to establish their demonic New World Order.  But even here, it simply does not make good sense for them to effectively destroy the World.  When you strip all the BS away, what is left is a spiritual battle between the fallen Lucifer and his minions and God and His people.  God will win but most of us will die in the war itself, but if we are close to God, we will be OK...better than OK!  Stirling    
The Strait of Hormuz is a narrow waterway that leads in and out of the Persian Gulf between Iran and Oman.

Iran has repeatedly warned that in the event of a military attack on the country, it will not hesitate in taking all necessary measures to protect its sovereignty one of which would be to close the strategic oil passage.

Earlier on Wednesday, Iran's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said, “Iran has total control over the strategic water way,” adding that, “Closing the Strait of Hormuz is very easy for Iranian naval forces.”

On Tuesday Iran's Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi also warned that not a drop of oil would be allowed to pass through the Strait of Hormuz if sanctions are imposed against Iran's oil exports.

Iran's Navy is currently conducting a massive 10-day naval drill, codenamed “Velayat 90”, in an area stretching from the east of the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf to the Gulf of Aden. 

US and Israel discuss Triggers for bombing Iran ~ link ~ More BS...the bottom line is that the globalists are controlling the West and they want war!   

Afghanistan warns NATO to disband local militias ~ link ~ The Afghan government has ordered NATO to disband its local militias and end the “Critical Infrastructure Protection” CIP program, with the Interior Ministry saying it was creating parallel structures that undermine the central government’s authority.

The CIP scheme was seen as the Afghan analogue to the “Concerned Local Citizens” effort in Iraq, which created armed factions of US-funded militias aimed at “improving security.” The Concerned Local Citizens scheme was initially praised as a success in Sunni regions of Iraq but eventually saw the Shi’ite-dominated Maliki government reneging on promising to integrate them into the national security forces and accusing them of disloyalty.
Israeli Foreign Minister Lieberman 'enraged' at EU for noting discrimination in Israel ~ link ~ Lieberman is always 'enraged' about something.  He is a first class NUT and actually manages to make Netanyahu look sane and peaceful.  Lieberman is such an asshole that his chutzpah knows no boundaries.  He feels that the European Union cannot state the obvious truth and must follow the line/narrative of the tiny Israeli state no matter what.   Stirling     

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman is “enraged” today, according to reports, after the existence of a confidential European Union memo was revealed which noted that Arabs inside Israel face discrimination. 

A Foreign Ministry spokesman issued a statement on Lieberman’s behalf condemning the EU and complaining that the memo was written “behind our backs” and without having asked the Israeli government for permission first. 

Japan drops ban on military exports ~ link ~ This is a major story.  The Japanese have not exported arms since World War II; they are resuming arms exports as all-out WWIII nears.  The real question is will these exports go to Taiwan?  If they open up the flow of arms to Taiwan it will really upset the security environment in Asia.   Stirling      

Congresswoman unveils bill to end illegal TSA impersonations of federal law enforcement officers ~ link ~ Because of the way they are instructed to dress and conduct themselves at US airports, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners come across as if they are some type of federal law enforcement officers, even though they are not. For this reason, a number of Congressmen are backing a new bill authored by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) that will put an end to these illegal impersonation protocols, which include having TSA agents dress in police officer-like uniforms with official badges.

Contrary to popular belief, TSA airport screeners are not law enforcement officers. In fact, as we have documented numerous times here at NaturalNews, TSA agents are perceived as having far more authority than they really have -- and some of them have abused this false perception to take advantage of the public.

Occupy Movement targets Iowa 'political theater' - with video ~ link ~ Actually, with the exception of Ron Paul, the Iowa campaign is more like a circus of clowns!  The "inside the box" candidates outdo one another in their willingness to place Israeli interests before American one, in their willingness to continue the basic globalists dictated economic policies that are destroying America, and in their willingness to drive headfirst into a Third World War.   Stirling      

Anti-corporate protesters in the United States have pledged to expand their rallies as Republican presidential hopefuls step up their election campaigns.

The activists said on Tuesday that they would interrupt candidates at events and camp out at their Iowa campaign offices, saying they want to change the political dialogue.

Hundreds of Occupy activists from at least 10 states are expected to participate in a "People's Caucus" near the Iowa Capitol to plot activities between late December and the January 3 caucuses. Occupy activists say the caucuses are largely meaningless as the parties and candidates are overly influenced by the wealthy.

Ron Paul says defense bill assures 'descent into totalitarianism' ~ link“The founders wanted to set a high bar for the government to overcome in order to deprive an individual of life or liberty,” Paul, the libertarian congressman from Texas, said Monday in a weekly phone message to supporters. “To lower that bar is to endanger everyone. When the bar is low enough to include political enemies, our descent into totalitarianism is virtually assured. The Patriot Act, as bad as its violations against the Fourth Amendment was, was just one step down the slippery slope. The recently passed National Defense Authorization Act continues that slip into tyranny, and in fact, accelerates it significantly.”

“The Fifth Amendment is about much more than the right to remain silent in the face of government questioning,” Paul continued. “It contains very basic and very critical stipulations about the due process of law. The government cannot imprison a person for no reason and with no evidence presented and without access to legal council. The danger of the NDAA is its alarmingly vague, undefined criteria for who can be indefinitely detained by the U.S. government without trial.”

“It is no longer limited to members of Al Qaeda or the Taliban, but anyone accused of substantially supporting such groups or associated forces,” Paul continued. “How closely associated, and what constitutes substantial support? What if it was discovered that someone who committed a terrorist act was once involved with a charity? Or suppose a political candidate? Are all donors of that candidate or supporters of that candidate now suspects and subject to indefinite detainment? Is that charity now an associated force?”
