Iran delays Gulf of Hormuz missile tests - Asks for talks with major powers ~ link ~ Iran does not want war.  It knows that any General Middle East War is apt to involve weapons of mass destruction very early on and will totally get out of hand.  They have a MAD (mutually assured destruction) Counter-Force with Israel and NATO utilizing their massive Advanced Biological Warfare capabilities, but as the MAD name implies, it would be insane to 'go there'.   Killing most Israelis and Saudis and maybe a third of North America's and Europe's civilian populations would do no good to Iran, as its people would be totally wiped out.  They are acting as adults, the trouble is Bibi 666 Netanyahu and the globalists are NOT.  The WANT WAR regardless of the human costs.  Now is a good time for prayer folks.  Stirling     


Iran said it had delayed promised long-range missile tests in the Gulf on Saturday and signaled it was ready for fresh talks with the West on its disputed nuclear program.

Iran’s state media initially reported early on Saturday that long-range missiles had been launched during naval exercises, a move likely to irk the West, which is concerned over threats by Tehran to close off a vital oil shipping route in the Gulf.

But Deputy Navy Commander Mahmoud Mousavi later went on the English language Press TV channel to deny the missiles had in fact been fired: “The exercise of launching missiles will be carried out in the coming days.”







Iranian missile spin closes Strait of Hormuz for five hours ~ link ~ The Iranians are sending a clear message to the Saudis and allied Arab and non-Arab forces in the area that their military bases, oil facilities, and even cities are in grave danger of Iranian missile attacks if Iran is attacked or if sanctions are increased.   Stirling      

By a media trick, Tehran proved its claim that closing the Strait of Hormuz is as "easy as drinking water," debkafile reports.  First thing Saturday morning, Saturday, Dec. 31, Iran's state agencies "reported" long-range and other missiles had been test-fired as part of its ongoing naval drill around the Strait of Hormuz. Ahead of the test, Tehran closed its territorial waters. For five hours Saturday, not a single warship, merchant vessel or oil tanker ventured into the 30-mile wide Hormuz strait, waiting to hear from Tehran' that the test was over.

For five hours therefore, world shipping obeyed Tehran's warning and gave the narrow waterway through which one-fifth of the world's oil passes, a wide berth. They stayed out of range of a test which, debkafile's military sources report, aimed to demonstrate for the first time that Shahab-3 ballistic missiles which have a range of 1,600 kilometers and other missiles, such as the Nasr1cruise marine missile, are capable of reaching Hormuz from central Iran.



Mossad Chief: Iranian nuclear weapon would not be existential threat ~ link ~ Amazing, now even the current Mossad chief agrees with most former Mossad chiefs (and most former IDF chiefs and other top intelligence chiefs) that maybe Israel really does not want to go to war with a large nation like Iran that can DESTROY ISRAEL!  But even more amazing is the fact that this will NOT stop Netanyahu and Lieberman/etc. from their path to war, nor the globalist controlled Obama Administration and certain other key NATO powers.  Some people have seen the hard time that I give Israel for its policies as some type of hate for the Jewish people....Wrong....I do not hate them....I object to many of the policies of the Israeli state on both moral and strategic grounds.  In this, I am at least partially joined by a majority of the 'retired' senior intelligence and military leaders of Israel.  A General Middle East War is suicide for Israel, for Saudi Arabia, for Turkey, and for all of the Middle East, and will almost certainly bring about the Third World War with 21st Century weapons...and that means Armageddon!   Stirling      

Speaking at a meeting of top Israeli ambassadors in Jerusalem, Mossad chief Tamir Pardo rejected the notion that Iran, even if they were nuclear armed, constituted an “existential threat,” saying the term is being used “too freely.”
“If you said a nuclear bomb in Iranian hands was an ‘existential’ threat, that would mean that we would have to close up shop. That’s not the situation,” Pardo insisted. The claim that such a situation would be an existential threat has been a common talking point among hawks in both Israel and the US.

Pardo is the latest in a growing line of Israeli intelligence officials who have been making comments unfavorable to the Netanyahu government’s pro-war stance. His predecessor, Meir Dagan, had cautioned openly against attacking Iran, warning it would lead to a “regional war.” The comments spawned angry condemnations from political leaders.

US sets stage for war against Iran ~ linkSame lies, different target nation, but the results will be FAR FAR WORSE THIS TIME!   Stirling      

The recent allegations made by the United States against Iran have set the stage for a war against the Islamic Republic, an American analyst says.

"With the typical backdrop of alarmist propaganda in place, the stage is now set for a new war, this time with Iran," Robert Parry said in an article on Global Research.

"There is now a cascading of allegations regarding Iran, as there was with Iraq, with the momentum rushing toward war," he added.

The analyst noted that "tougher and tougher Western sanctions against Iran have pushed the various sides closer to war… as happened with Iraq -- when harsher economic sanctions merged with a US troop build-up."

Warning of "devastating consequences" of a "prospective war with Iran," Parry also said Washington's allegation that Iran is on pace to build a nuclear bomb resembles accusations that Iraq possessed Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). 




Illuminati Global Banking Cartel funded both Hitler and Churchill ~ link ~ And Stalin and Lenin and Napoleon, etc., etc.  The global banksters are the monsters who profit from and arrange the deaths of hundreds of millions via war and repression, and have done so many times over the past two hundred plus years.  They serve the fallen Lucifer and are determined to bring about WWIII and during 2012.   Stirling      



The 'West' tries out old tricks in Russia ~ link ~ They have only managed to really piss off the Russian Bear!  Stirling    
 
Long before the State Duma elections of Dec 4, the ultra-rightist and liberal mass media, collaborating with anti-Russian elements in the West, forecast that the ruling United Russia party would suffer a serious defeat.

They organized all sorts of sociological surveys to support this thoroughly planned campaign and to push their "predictions" on the "crisis" facing Russian leaders and "sharply declining rating" of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev. The anti-Putin campaign became really vociferous when the United Russia congress officially and unanimously approved Putin as its nominee for the presidential election in March 2012.








Hugo Chavez hits at US cancer plots against many South American leaders ~ link ~ I have been told that such technologies exists.  Is this happening?  Who knows.   Stirling      


He has called George W Bush the devil and described Barack Obama as a clown.

But Hugo Chávez's customary jabs at his neighbours to the north took an unusual turn this week, when the Venezuelan president suggested that Washington might be behind a wave of cancer among Latin American heads of state.



The Number One Catastrophic Event that Americans Worry About: Economic Collapse ~ link ~ I would say that they should also place WWIII and police state fascism right up there at number one also.   Stirling  

Can you guess what the number one catastrophic event that Americans worry about is?  There are certainly many to choose from.  Many Americans are deathly afraid of a major terrorist attack.  Others live in constant fear of natural disasters such as earthquakes, volcanoes and hurricanes.  Still others are incredibly concerned that a massive pandemic will break out at any time or that World War III will erupt in the Middle East.  Yes, there are certainly a lot of potential catastrophic events that one can worry about in the times in which we live, but the number one catastrophic event that Americans worry about is actually "economic collapse".  At least that is what a recent survey conducted by Leiflin Inc. for the EcoHealth Alliance found.  But this goes along with what so many other polls have found over the past few years.  Over and over again, opinion polls have found that the number one issue that American voters are concerned about is the economy.  The truth is that average Americans are deeply, deeply concerned about unemployment, debt, the housing crash and the steady decline in the standard of living.  It has been years since the U.S. economy has operated at a "normal" level, and many Americans are afraid that things could soon get a whole lot worse.

In the new survey mentioned above, those contacted were asked to select the top three potential catastrophes that worry them the most.

The following results come directly from the survey....



30 Statistics that show that the Middle Class is dying right in front of our eyes as we enter 2012 ~ link ~ This is one that you should read in full at the link!  Stirling     

Once upon a time, the United States had the largest and most vibrant middle class that the world has ever seen.  Unfortunately, that is rapidly changing.  The statistics that you are about to read prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the U.S. middle class is dying right in front of our eyes as we enter 2012.  The decline of the middle class is not something that has happened all of a sudden.  Rather, there has been a relentless grinding down of the middle class over the last several decades.  Millions of our jobs have been shipped overseas, the rate of inflation has far outpaced the rate that our wages have grown, and overwhelming debt has choked the financial life out of millions of American families.  Every single day, more Americans fall out of the middle class and into poverty.  In fact, more Americans fell into poverty last year than has ever been recorded before.  The number of middle class jobs and middle class neighborhoods continues to decline at a staggering pace.  As I have written about previously, America as a whole is getting poorer as a nation, and as this happens wealth is becoming increasingly concentrated at the very top of the income scale.  This is not how capitalism is supposed to work, and it is not good for America.

Today I went over to Safeway and I was absolutely appalled at the prices.  I honestly don't know how most families make it these days.  I ended up paying over 140 dollars for about two-thirds of a cart of food.  That was after I "saved" 67 dollars on sale items.

When the cost of the basic things that we need - housing, food, gas, electricity - go up faster than our incomes do, that means that we are getting poorer.

Sadly, if you look at the long-term numbers, some very clear negative trends emerge....
