Assad wins out over opposition as Russia and Iran strengthen ties ~ link ~ If this Debka report is correct, then expect to see the locus of the drive towards a General Middle East War to, once again, shift back towards Iran. Stirling
Western intelligence sources reporting in real time found Saturday night, Feb. 11, that Bashar Assad's loyal military and security forces had by and large managed to subdue the rebellion against the regime. They are now purging the last pockets of resistance, especially in Syria's third largest city, Homs. Still to come are possible flare-ups here and there and inevitably more horror stories of atrocities, but to all intents and purposes Syria's eleven-month uprising is all but over.
Syrian army general assassinated by gunman in Damascus ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ Gunmen assassinated an army general in Damascus on Saturday in the first killing of a high military officer in the Syrian capital since the uprising against President Bashar Assad's regime began in March, the state-run news agency said.
SANA said three gunmen opened fire at Brig. Gen. Issa al-Khouli in the morning as he left his home in the Damascus neighborhood of Rukn-Eddine. Al-Khouli was a doctor and the chief of a military hospital in the capital. No one claimed responsibility for the killing.
Former Mossad chief: Don't attack Iran ~ link ~ As I have said before, this man is doing his best to save Israel from the strategic insanity of the Netanyahu government. Meir Dagan is not some softie, not a pacifists by any wild stretch of the imagination, not a 'self-hating Jew'. He is a hard-core Zionist who has spent his life in the service of Israel and has done, no doubt, many many horrible deeds in the process. When he, and several other senior former intelligence chiefs, step forward to oppose a war on Iran it is from a sense of duty to their tribe, their nation, and from a deep understanding of the grave dangers to Israel and the world from unleashing such a war. Some have accused me of being a anti-Semite...well I am not...I do get very upset with some of the crap that Israel and its supporters do...but I hope that Israel and its neighbors can live in peace and prosperity. The opposite will happen if the nuts in the Netanyahu government, and the globalists, have their way. Stirling
"It is clear that Israel and its neoconservative camp followers here in the United States are increasing pressure on President Obama to either attack Iran or let Israel do it," M.J. Rosenberg said.
Some Greek officials resign over austerity cuts ~ link ~ There are some good officials you know. Stirling
America's Crisis ~ link ~ World elitists have chosen their path that is jam money and credit into the system until it won’t take it anymore and hyperinflation explodes. This is well borne out by scores of trillion dollar loans created out of thin air and now QE 3 and how many QE’s beyond that. You ask how long the Fed can buy 80% Treasuries? The answer is almost indefinitely until, of course, the bottom falls out.
Using current policy there cannot be a real recovery, only an up and down sideways movement, which allows the financial sector to get richer and the economy to go nowhere. The latter is part of the enslavement process. You lose your job, home, vehicles and have to hunt for food and shelter. At some point government will pick these people up and put them in internment camps. Nothing has been fixed at the jobs level and in fact the situation is worsening. Even those who can get jobs are paid $10 to $15 an hour, not the $15 to $30 they were previously paid, as jobs still leave the country under free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. The worker is being deliberately being trampled in the process and being subjected to higher and higher inflation, as too big to fail banks get bigger and bigger. If you can believe this there is now talk about too big to fail executives. Yes, individuals that would operate above the law with immunity. We just saw a sample of this in Europe for financial ministers who would act in the new ESM. They would be immunized. You are going to see lots more of this.
Scotland has right to hold referendum say legal experts ~ link ~ A group of seven senior constitutional academics have revealed to UK Constitutional Law Group (UKCLG) that, under the current provisions of the Scotland Act, Scotland’s Parliament has a “plausible case” for arranging a referendum on the country’s independence.
The academics told the UKCLG that Holyrood has the legal authority to pass a bill calling for organizing the referendum without any meddling from Westminster.
'Sun' newspaper 'will continue' says Rupert Murdoch - with video ~ link ~ Rupert Murdoch is the classic example of what is wrong with the mainstream news media of the world. It is controlled by the globalists thru front-men and run by hardcore Zionists. They grossly distort reality by creating false narratives for the public to push war, and economic choices that always benefit the Global Banking Cartel at the expense of the masses. Their power needs to be broken up for the sake of the survival of the human race. Stirling
