The Early Stages of the General Middle East War have already begun with the foreign based military operations against Syria and the Oil Embargo against Iran and other related embargoes against both Syria and Iran.  When and how this will continue to expend, including into an all-out military-style engagement involving weapons of mass destruction, is something that time will tell.  We can, however, be sure that the engagement is 'on' and will continue to expand in the days/weeks/months ahead.

War on Iran: It's NOT a Matter of "If" ~ link ~ The War is on, it is just not a shooting war in the Strait of Hormuz yet, but has been a shooting war for some months in Syria.   Stirling    

As with sanctions and covert military onslaughts on Iraq in the run up to 2003, the first point to underline is that the US is waging war on Iran. But well aware of the US public’s aversion to yet another war in the Middle East, the onslaught is an undeclared one.

The analogy here is the run up to Pearl Harbor. Let me quote from a useful timeline. On October 7, 1940,   a US Navy IQ analyst Arthur McCollum wrote an 8 point memo on how to force Japan into war with US. Beginning the next day FDR began to put them into effect and all 8 were eventually accomplished.


As Pierre Sprey remarked to me, “Note also that this is one of those rare but dangerous moments in history when Big Oil and the Israelis are pushing the White House in the same direction. The last such moment was quickly followed by Dubya’s invasion of Iraq.” [Note: Big Oil is effectively a part of the Global Banking Cartel families Empire.  Stirling ]





War of Attrition with Iran brewing over Gulf Oil routes ~ link ~ The EU Oil Embargo is an Act of War that Iran cannot afford to ignore, nor can Iran allow its key ally Syria be militarily defeated in the armed conflict that continues to grow within Syria.  This will take a number of twists and turns, some unexpected, in the days to come.   This is an interesting article, worth the time to read it all at the link.  Stirling   





Washington's "War of Sanctions" against Iran ~ link ~ In the long run, Western oil firms and consumers may “emerge the biggest losers.” The IMF has predicted that crude oil prices could rise up to 30 percent namely to over USD 140 per barrel if Iran ever decided to retaliate by halting its oil exports altogether.


Europe has seen better days and now is not surely the best time for the imposition of sanctions on Iran's oil as they will suffer most. For some European countries such as Italy, Spain and Greece, it will not be really easy to participate in the ban on Iran oil as they largely rely on Iran imports. As for Greece which is receiving oil from Iran on credit, it will be an utterly wrong decision to join other European countries which have secret plans to disintegrate the country.


Much to the chagrin of Washington and the Zionist regime, a number of countries such as China, India, Russia, Turkey, Japan, and South Korea have already refused to abide by the new measures. Russia has slammed the new package of sanctions and in a tough-worded statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry described the EU move as “deeply erroneous."





The Elephant in the Living Room ~ linkWell, how blatant, how in our face, does it have to be before the elephant on the sofa is acknowledged for what it is? Rothschild Zionism is leading the world into yet another war and this time with the serious potential to explode into a third global conflict - what they have long sought to engineer.

I refer to Zionism as ‘Rothschild Zionism’ to constantly expose who created this expression of undiluted evil and who controls it to this day - the House of Rothschild. The secret society called Zionism was not created for the benefit of Jewish people, but to use them as a cover to pursue the merciless annexation of Planet Earth. Many and increasing numbers of Jewish people can now see this. They have been ‘had’ on a monumental scale. The first Rothschild Zionist Congress was in Basel, Switzerland, in August 1897, but not many realise that it was originally due to take place in Munich, Germany.






UK ready to send more warships into Gulf in 'clear signal' ~ link ~ A British frigate, HMS Argyll, and a French warship were part of the convoy, which sailed within a few miles of the Iranian coast. The UK has about 1,500 naval personnel in the Indian Ocean serving on four minesweepers, two frigates, three support ships, a survey vessel and a hunter-killer submarine. A Response Force Task Group of Royal Marines, helicopters and naval vessels set up last year could also be deployed at short notice.

HMS Daring, a destroyer with specialist air-defence capabilities, is already sailing toward Suez on a six-month mission against piracy and drug smuggling and could be diverted in an emergency. HMS Westminster, a frigate used during the Libya campaign last summer, left Portsmouth in southern England on Monday and could reach Hormuz within a week.

Fukushima: A Nuclear War without a War:  The Unspoken Crisis of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation ~ linkThis is a true worldwide crisis that is NOT going away.   Take the time to read all of the article at the link.  Stirling     
The World is at a critical crossroads. The Fukushima disaster in Japan has brought to the forefront the dangers of Worldwide nuclear radiation.


Nuclear radiation --which threatens life on planet earth-- is not front page news in comparison to the most insignificant issues of public concern, including the local level crime scene or the tabloid gossip reports on Hollywood celebrities. 


While the long-term repercussions of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster are yet to be fully assessed, they are far more serious than those pertaining to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in the Ukraine, which resulted in almost one million deaths (New Book Concludes - Chernobyl death toll: 985,000, mostly from cancer Global Research, September 10, 2010, See also Matthew Penney and Mark Selden  The Severity of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster: Comparing Chernobyl and Fukushima, Global Research, May 25, 2011)





New World Order - BioWar - Big Pharma ~ link ~ An interesting article, somewhat long but worth a read.   Stirling    





Why Ron Paul is Unlikely to Become President - But Needs to Be President ~ linkThis is a good article, one that I recommend.   Stirling       

In my belief, the powers that be have two very justified fears if Dr. Paul were to win.


First, he is not at all a Washington insider. He is not likely to crack deals to assure his future. In fact, he is very likely to shine a light on those who do. This makes him a dangerous man to have around. However, the second fear of Dr. Paul is the greater of the two. If he won, he would evidence to the American public that the two-party system — with both parties controlled equally by corporatism — is not a foregone conclusion.


The people have a choice. They still retain enough power as voters to reject a thoroughly corrupt system and install an alternative. In fact, a Paul Presidency could lead the way for a wholesale rejection of incumbent politicians in Congress in 2014. I believe that this is not only possible, it is likely.





The Evolution of Neoliberal Labor Strategy and Decline of the American Working Class ~ link ~ This is an excellent article with detailed charts.  Stirling    

The decline of the working class is not irreversible.  Neoliberal labor strategy is well-entrenched in national policy, but it is ultimately indefensible because it serves only a small minority of Americans at the expense of the vast majority.  The following guidelines, derived from the analysis of the evolution NLS are submitted to working America for discussion and action: 





Banks Weren't Meant To Be Like This ~ linkIn medieval times, wealthy bankers lent to kings and princes as their major customers. But now it is the banks that are needy, relying on governments for funding – capped by the post-2008 bailouts to save them from going bankrupt from their bad private-sector loans and gambles.

Yet the banks now browbeat governments – not by having ready cash but by threatening to go bust and drag the economy down with them if they are not given control of public tax policy, spending and planning. The process has gone furthest in the United States. Joseph Stiglitz characterizes the Obama administration’s vast transfer of money and pubic debt to the banks as a “privatizing of gains and the socializing of losses. It is a ‘partnership’ in which one partner robs the other.” Prof. Bill Black describes banks as becoming criminogenic and innovating “control fraud.”  High finance has corrupted regulatory agencies, falsified account-keeping by “mark to model” trickery, and financed the campaigns of its supporters to disable public oversight. The effect is to leave banks in control of how the economy’s allocates its credit and resources.
