Large Russian naval battle fleet docks in Syria ~ link ~ A large Russian naval flotilla led by an aircraft carrier has docked in the Syrian port of Tartus in what Damascus state media hailed on Sunday as a show of solidarity by close ally Moscow.
 
The six-day port call by the carrier group in the Mediterranean port where Russia has a recently expanded naval base is intended to boost ties at a time when President Bashar al-Assad's government is under mounting Western and Arab pressure over its bloody crackdown on dissent, the Syrian press said.









Massive American Troop Build-Up in Israel: War with Iran on the Horizon? - RT video ~ link ~ Good One!  Take the time to view this.  Stirling      





The War on Iran: The Deployment of Thousands of US Troops to Israel, The Integration of US-Israeli Command Structures ~ link ~ The Global Banking Cartel families do not care for Israel, or America, or Britain, or anything but their 'god' power and money.  They are the total puppets of Lucifer and his time on this planet is almost up and he desires to leave the Earth a dead burnt-out shell.  That is what is really driving global geo-political events at the present time.   Stirling   

Who wants to "wipe Israel off the Map"? Tehran or Washington? Ahmadinejad or Obama?
In actual fact, the Obama administration as well as the Netanyahu government indelibly constitute a threat to the people of Israel.

Tehran has since 2005 warned that it will retaliate if attacked, in the form of ballistic missile strikes directed against Israel as well as against US military facilities in the Persian Gulf, which would immediately lead us into a scenario of military escalation.

This war would engulf a region extending from the Mediterranean to the heartland of Central Asia. It would have devastating consequences, resulting in a massive loss of life.
It would precipitate humanity into a World War III scenario.

When War Games GO LIVE - Preparing to Attack Iran - "Simulating World War III" ~ link ~ A 'good one' to view.   Showing a world on the edge of satanic madness.   Stirling     

The history of war planning including war games and simulations directed against Iran is essential to an understanding of recent developments in the Persian Gulf.  

Active war preparations directed against Iran (with the involvement of Israel and NATO) were initiated in May 2003, one month after the invasion and occupation of Iraq. It should be understood that from the outset of these war preparations, a World War III scenario was envisaged by US war planners.

The assumption of escalation was embedded in the simulations and the war games. 



Pakistan and China to strengthen strategic defense ties ~ link ~ They know World War III is coming and coming soon.  They know that there will be a Pakistan-Afghanistan-India-China War Theater to WWIII.  They are getting ready.   Stirling      

Beijing—Pakistan and China have vowed to strengthen their comprehensive and all-dimensional relationship, especially in the defense sector. Conveying their strong solidarity with Pakistan, Chinese civilian and military leaders have told the visiting Chief of Army Staff, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, that China will always stand by its close and trusted strategic partner - Pakistan. China has started its calendar of high level visits in 2012 with the visit of General Kayani. Chinese media has especially highlighted the importance of the visit in the backdrop of recent regional and international developments. General Kayani had three separate meetings with State Councilor Dai Bingguo; General Chen Bingde, PLA Chief of General Staff, and Mr. Chen Qiufa, Administrator, State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND) in Beijing on Friday. General Chen Bingde told General Kayani that Pakistan-China friendship is "as strong as steel." It is a relationship conducive to peace and stability in the region, he said. General Chen said that the armed forces, governments and people of the two countries are proud of this all-weather relationship. Endorsing this assessment, General Kayani said that the time-tested strategic relations between Pakistan and China have the support of the people of two countries. Both Pakistan and China have gone through different phases in their history but their friendship and strong bonds have been a constant factor.

General Kayani said that the relationship between the two armed forces is solid which has been strengthened by frequent high-level visits, joint exercises and enhanced technological cooperation. General Kayani said that the joint exercises between the armed forces of the two countries have demonstrated a high degree of professional compatibility and interoperability. General Chen said China will give unwavering support to Pakistan. "Chinese Government and PLA attach highest importance to General Kayani’s visit and Sino-Pak military to military cooperation," he said adding that the friendship between the two countries "will grow even stronger in future." General Chen thanked Pakistan for giving unstinting support to China on the issues of Taiwan, Tibet, and Xinjiang. General Kayani said that Pakistan will continue to provide firm support to China on all issues concerning its core interests and will work closely with the Chinese side to take Pak-China strategic partnership to new heights. Echoing these sentiments, General Chen said that China would like to strength military ties with Pakistan and take the existing cooperation to "a new, higher level."
 



US Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff admits that Iran can close Strait of Hormuz for a "period of time" ~ link ~ This unnecessary war on Iran/Syria is what the Global Banking Cartel and the Netanyahu extremists want.  At best, it will result in a total global economic collapse causing a global 'Greatest Depression'.   At worst, it will cause World War III which will be the Biblical Armageddon and kill 2/3 of the human race.   Stirling          

Iran has the ability to temporarily block the Strait of Hormuz but the U.S. “would take action and reopen” it, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Martin Dempsey said Sunday, making clear to Iran that in threatening to close the straits, it is literally playing with fire. .

“They’ve invested in capabilities that could, in fact, for a period of time block the Strait of Hormuz,” Dempsey said in an interview for CBS's “Face the Nation." “We’ve invested in capabilities to ensure that if that happens, we can defeat that.”
[Note:  The photo of General Dempsey shows the new Class A uniform that the US Army is adopting to replace the old green Class A.  It is similar to the US Army uniforms from the US Civil War and western expansion eras.  Stirling



Why Not Attack Iran? - Iran WILL RETALIATE against US troops and Israel ~ link ~ Actually, if the War against Iran goes very far, Iran will retaliate against the homelands and population of America, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, etc., with its "poor man's nuke", that is with its massive global strategic advanced biowar capability!   Stirling     

Now we begin to understand the importance of all the media suppression, blackouts, and lies about the damage done to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we understand why Obama and Panetta have embraced the lies that launched the War on Iraq. The same lies must now be revived, as for every war ever fought, for a War on Iran. Here's a video explaining how this will work, even with some new twists and lots of variations. The U.S. corporate media is part of the war machine.

Planning war and funding war creates its own momentum. Sanctions become, as with Iraq, a stepping stone to war. Cutting off diplomacy leaves few options open. Electoral pissing contests take us all where most of us did not want to be.

These are the bombs most likely to launch this ugly and quite possibly terminal chapter of human history.
 


The US-Iran economic War: Worldwide Depression - Skyrocketing Oil Prices? ~ link ~ Best case scenario from a limited blocking of the Strait of Hormuz and limited Middle East War is total global economic collapse!   Stirling      

Here's a crash course on how to further wreck the global economy.

A key amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act signed by United States President Barack Obama on the last day of 2011 - when no one was paying attention - imposes sanctions on any countries or companies that buy Iranian oil and pay for it through Iran's central bank. Starting this summer, anybody who does it is prevented from doing business with the US.

This amendment - for all practical purposes a declaration of economic war - was brought to you by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), on direct orders of the Israeli government under Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu. 



Reserve US Airmen to be Deployed to the Middle East ~ link ~ The following is a Release from the US Air Force. The deployment of Air Force Reservists to the Southest Asia ( aka Arabian Peninsula, Persian Gulf) is indicative that the US is on a war footing.



The Geo-Politics of the Strait of Hormuz: Can the US Navy be defeated by Iran in the Persian Gulf?  ~ link ~ Here is the real problem:  Any move by Iran will be countered by America/NATO/Israel.  These moves will be countered by Iran/Syria/Hezbollah.  These moves will be countered by Israel/US/NATO/Saudi Arabia/etc.  This will quickly become a General Middle East War involving WMD and will spread to the North American and European homelands of NATO.  The war will expand to multiple war theaters and become the Third World War and that will become the Biblical Armageddon.   Stirling      

Besides the fact that it is a vital transit point for global energy resources and a strategic chokepoint, two additional issues should be addressed in regards to the Strait of Hormuz and its relationship to Iran. The first concerns the geography of the Strait of Hormuz. The second pertains to the role of Iran in co-managing the strategic strait in accordance with international law and its sovereign national rights.

The maritime traffic that goes through the Strait of Hormuz has always been in contact with Iranian naval forces, which are predominantly composed of the Iranian Regular Force Navy and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Navy. In fact, Iranian naval forces monitor and police the Strait of Hormuz along with the Sultanate of Oman via the Omani enclave of Musandam. More importantly, to transit through the Strait of Hormuz all maritime traffic, including the U.S. Navy, must sail through Iranian territorial waters. Almost all entrances into the Persian Gulf are made through Iranian waters and most exits are through Omani waters.

Iran allows foreign ships to use its territorial waters in good faith and on the basis of Part III of the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea’s maritime transit passage provisions that stipulate that vessels are free to sail through the Strait of Hormuz and similar bodies of water on the basis of speedy and continuous navigation between an open port and the high seas. Although Tehran in custom follows the navigation practices of the Law of the Sea, Tehran is not legally bound by them. Like Washington, Tehran signed this international treaty, but never ratified it.
 
U.S. naval strength, which includes the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard, has primacy over all the other navies and maritime forces in the world. Its deep sea or oceanic capabilities are unparalleled and unmatched by any other naval power. Primacy does not mean invincibility. U.S. naval forces in the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf are nonetheless vulnerable.
