Assad will fight from new mountain fortress if "civil war" engulfs Syria ~ link ~ Keep in mind that this is from a Israeli site with links to the intelligence community and they are repeating the narrative that Assad is facing a "civil war". What he, and Syria, are facing is foreign mercenaries financed/trained/equipped/led by NATO/Turkey/Saudi Arabia/Israel. No doubt he has many hidden bunkers for his government and military. War continues to get closer in the Middle East and with it World War III. Stirling
Britain and allies breed violence in Syria ~ link ~ Britain and its NATO allies have launched a propaganda campaign based on blatant lies by alleged human rights activists and a network of duplicity and deception to ignite a war on Syria.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which has been the main source of these blatant lies, receives all its reports via phone and YouTube videos from inside Syria, none of which could be verified or authenticated independently or officially, it has been revealed.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is also working in close coordination with both US-funded NGOs and British Foreign Secretary William Hague.
As far as the UN Human Right Council's report about the situation in Syria is concerned, it has recently been revealed that the report entitled Syrian “crimes against humanity” was actually co-authored by Karen Koning AbuZayd, a director of the US Washington-based corporate think-tank, 'Middle East Policy Council', that includes Exxon men, CIA agents, US military and government representatives, and even the president of the US-Qatar Business Council, which includes amongst its membership, Al-Jazeera, Chevron, Exxon, munitions manufacturer Raytheon, and Boeing.
The UN report itself contained no verifiable evidence, but rather hearsay accounts recorded in Geneva by alleged "victims" "witnesses," and "defectors," put forth by "all interested persons and organizations." In other words, the UN report was an open invitation for Syria's enemies to paint whatever image of the ruling government they pleased.

Israel braces for meddling in Syria ~ link ~ Israel should be working on making the area safer for its long-term existence via establishing peaceful relations. Instead it wants to play the role of regional "super-power". That is a road to self-destruction and global nightmare! Stirling
According to Israeli sources, the Israeli military is preparing for different scenarios in Syria, including military intervention, following a possible regime change in the country.
Tel Aviv has recently increased troop levels along its border with Syria, while many view as evidence supporting the theory that Tel Aviv is preparing to intervene in Syria, Israeli military officials claim that the surge in troops aims to secure the occupied Golan Heights in the event of a Syrian attack on Israeli targets.
In interviews with Israeli news outlets over the past few months, the Syrian opposition members have clearly expressed their vision for the future of Syria and their interest in establishing relations with the Tel Aviv regime.
However, Syrian people have repeatedly expressed solidarity with the government. Figures show that during the past weeks, about 12 million people have demonstrated in support of President Assad and his reform program.

US threatens war in the Persian Gulf ~ link ~ The Obama administration’s bellicose stance towards Iran is setting the stage for a dangerous slide towards war in the Persian Gulf. Having provoked Tehran with legislation for what amounts to an oil embargo, the US is threatening Iran with military action if it retaliates by shutting down the Strait of Hormuz.

Edible Mushrooms: Nature's Most Researched Anti-Cancer Agent ~ link ~ If you or someone you know has cancer, GET OUTSIDE OF THE BOX if you want to live! Among other things, research the treatments and Rife Machines (that you can purchase) invented by the late Dr. Royal Raymond Rife. Stirling
AHCC stands for active hexose correlated compound, and is classified as a functional food made from hybridized mycelia of shiitake (and sometimes other mushrooms) in rice bran. It contains both alpha- and beta-glucan polysaccharides, well-known modulators of host immunity. Lentinan, also from shiitake (Lentinula edodes), is exclusively beta-glucan. What is so unique about these compounds is that they are "host-mediated" anti-cancer agents, helping the cancer-afflicted body combat cancer by boosting immune function.
This is a radically different approach versus conventional chemotherapy, which poisons rapidly dividing cells, indiscriminately, killing both cancer and immune cells (among other healthy cell types).
Iran has warned that in case Western threats of imposing an oil embargo on the Islamic Republic materialize, it reserves the right to respond by choking the oil flow through Hormuz, arguing that the free flow of oil must be for all or for none.
The possible closure of the waterway would have serious consequences for the global economy as it would greatly reduce supplies of crude oil, petroleum and liquefied natural gas.
According to Afghan officials, the containers held over in southern Pakistani port city of Karachi and northwestern city of Peshawar were supplied with food products for Afghan merchants.
Over the past weeks, Pakistanis have been taking part in anti-US demonstration against an attack which left 24 Pakistani soldiers dead.
The Nasr anti-ship missile is based on China’s C-704 missile and has a range of 35 kilometers. Iran has them mounted aboard patrol boats.

Formerly Great Cities All Over America Are Turning Into Open, Festering Sores ~ link ~ What the Global Banking Cartel families have brought America. Stirling
Once upon a time, the people of the United States constructed beautiful, shiny cities from coast to coast that were the envy of the entire globe. We had the largest and most vibrant middle class that the world has ever seen and life was quite good in America. But now all of our prosperity is coming crashing down and many of our formerly great cities are turning into open, festering sores. Unfortunately, we are drowning in so much debt that we can barely even slow down the shocking decline of our cities. Over the past decade, tens of thousands of manufacturing facilities and millions of good jobs have been shipped out of the United States. As our economic infrastructure has been ripped out right in front of our eyes, an atmosphere of unemployment, poverty and despair has descended on many of our major cities like a soaking wet blanket. Today, many of our cities that once were considered to be some of the greatest in the world have been transformed into rotting, post-apocalyptic hellholes. When you visit many of these cities and look into the sunken eyes of the residents, you almost get the feeling that something has sucked all of the hope and all of the life right out of them. For a while, large numbers of Americans still believed that the right politician would bring them “hope” and “change”, but now crushing despair is giving way to absolute desperation for millions of people. Desperate people do desperate things, and as our major cities continue to decay they are going to become very dangerous places to be.
Something Rotten in Iowa ~ link ~ Make no mistake about it, the globalists intend to steal the vote from Ron Paul in Iowa tomorrow! Also see: Trouble? ~ link ~ Stirling
As reported by The End Run yesterday, it turns out that Clarke Davidson, one of the protesters arrested for blocking the door to Ron Paul’s campaign office in Ankeny, Iowa, is the same guy responsible for uploading a video to YouTube calling on activists to “peacefully shut down” the Iowa caucuses this Tuesday, January 3.
The video, supposedly created by “Anonymous” and anonymously delivered to Davidson, is now being used in conjunction with these on-going “Occupy” protests (which have also targeted candidates like Mitt Romney and Barack Obama) as a pretext to move the vote counting for the Jan 3 primary to a secret location.
From "Trouble?": "Chicago radio is reporting that the ballot counting for the Iowa Caucus will be conducted in Springfield, Illinois. This is a disaster for honest government and a sign that the political establishment is intent on throwing the Iowa Republican Caucus to Mitt Romney."
