United Kingdom recalls Ambassador to Syria ~ link ~ Another 'Bad Sign'!   Stirling    
Following the lead of the US, which closed it embassy in Syria and pulled all its diplomats out of Damascus, British Foreign Secretary William Hague announced on Monday that his government has decided to recall its ambassador to Syria for consultations.

Speaking at the House of Commons, Hague told British lawmakers that the move was aimed to provide a channel through which the British government could express its “abhorrence” at the Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

Hague’s comments come as thousands of Syrian citizens held a rally in support of their president on Sunday in Damascus as they thanked Russia and China for their vetoing a Western-Arab draft resolution at the UN Security Council.

Furthermore, Hague stated that Britain would seek other ways to topple the Syrian government and will intensify its contact with the Syrian opposition.

Hague’s comments reek of yet another Libyan-like scenario against Syria while Britain itself faces great financial woes with a £10 billion black hole in its defense budget.
Incoming Israeli Air Force chief: Iran is our top concern ~ link ~ The escalating public discourse over the possibility of a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities has put a magnifying glass on incoming IAF Chief Major-General Amir Eshel's stance on the issue.
Eshel, whose IAF appointment was announced Monday, seldom expresses his opinion publically – all the more so since becoming the head of the IDF's Plans and Policy Directorate in 2008.

Syria: CIA - MI6 Intel Ops and Sabotage ~ link ~ The bottom line is that the global banksters want a Third World War to bring about their global slave state, the New World Order, and the Netanyahu nuts want a massive regional war to control the entire Middle East.   Stirling     

US shuts Syrian Embassy and threatens war ~ link ~
The “humanitarian assistance” provided by members of the group to Libyan “rebels” was widely reported to include covert arms shipments. The Libyan war ended with the bombing of Tripoli and Sirte, the extra-judicial murder of Gaddafi, and an estimated 80,000 Libyan casualties.

The United States and its allies are not only veering towards another disastrous conflict with Syria, but potentially with larger powers such as Iran and Russia. Clinton’s threat to halt weapons shipments to Syria will heighten US tensions with both countries, which have sent arms to Assad overland or via the Mediterranean Sea. Last month Russia also sent its Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier and escort vessels to cruise Syrian waters and visit the Syrian port of Tartus, which hosts a Russian naval base.

Yet another war for Israel ~ link  ~ That tiny country, smaller than Wales or Rhode Island is a millstone around the necks of the nations of the entire World.  Stirling     

Clearly Israel’s needs are not America’s needs if we mean by that more war in the mid-east. Have we pulled our troops from Iraq just to move them into Iran? Does any sensible person believe that the Iranians have a “need” or desire to attack the people of the United States? Our forces completely surround Iran. We are the nation with atomic weaponry, not Iran. What possible good would Iran achieve by having a nuclear weapon? Hasn’t Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Agreement while Israel, who damns Iran for its nuclear “ambitions,” has an arsenal of nuclear bombs and has refused to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Agreement. Which of these nations is to be feared? Iran has never attacked a neighbor; Israel attacks and occupies its neighbors at will.

Have the Iranians reason to fear control of the U.S. military by Israeli operatives using this nation as its power because Israel wants to devastate Iran the way Iraq has been devastated? Yes. Israel’s ultimate goal is control of the mid-east by surgically cutting it into small indefensible sections that can be dominated by Israeli money and American forces. It would appear, however, that Israel fears America does not desire to follow Israel’s advice to “take out” Iran the way they convinced the Bush administration to “take out” Saddam Hussein. Hence the constant barrage that characterizes Iran as a warlike state set on wiping Israel off the map and becoming the dominant power in the mid-east.

24 Signs that we are getting dangerously close to a Major War in the Middle East ~ link ~ Is 2012 the year when we will see a major war in the Middle East?  For years we have heard about rising tensions in the Middle East, and for years we have heard politicians express concerns about Iran’s nuclear program, but now things really do seem to be reaching a boiling point.  In just the past few days, the U.S. government has imposed tough new sanctions on Iran and has totally shut down the U.S. embassy in Syria.  The truth is that we are getting dangerously close to a major war in the Middle East. So will Israel strike Iran at some point in the next few months?  Will the U.S. military intervene in the rapidly escalating conflict inside of Syria?  If a major war does erupt, it could send the price of oil skyrocketing and there is the potential that the war could broaden very quickly.  Hezbollah has already indicated that it will side with Syria, and there is always the potential that Hamas could as well.  Russia and China have both stated that they are completely opposed to military action by the United States against Iran and Syria, and they have even hinted that they would possibly even help defend those countries.  As the nations of the world take sides, there is even the potential that we could see World War III develop.  Let us hope that it never comes to that, but with the world as unstable as it is right now, you never know what may happen.

What makes war so much more likely now is that nobody has shown any signs of backing down.
Syrian President Bashar Assad has sworn that he will never step down.

U.S. President Barack Obama says that it is only a matter of time until he is forced to step down and that no other outcome is acceptable.

Iran has sworn that it will never end its nuclear program.
The United States believes that if Iran is allowed to develop a nuclear weapon it would be a fundamental threat to world security.

Israel believes that if Iran is allowed to develop a nuclear weapon it would be a fundamental threat to the very existence of the nation of Israel.

So if nobody backs down, what is going to happen?

I think we all know what is going to happen.

The following are 24 signs that we are getting dangerously close to a major war in the Middle East….

Morris: Israel is Expendable - video ~ link ~ Actually that is the real position of the Global Banking Cartel.  They are using Netanyahu and his nutty Cabinet to bring about their long-sought third global war.   Stirling     

Haaretz (largest newspaper in Israel): Israelis should be afraid of their leaders, not Iran ~ link ~  This is one to read all of at the link.   Stirling     

Some of the people reading these lines will not live through the winter; some of them may not die a natural death. If one is to believe the threats that are ramping up at warp speed, Israel will strike Iran's nuclear facilities before spring. If the assessments are accurate, hundreds or even thousands of Israelis will die in the retaliatory missile attacks that are sure to come.

One can of course dismiss the threats as mere pressure tactics, but one could also take them seriously. One could recognize that threats of this scale take on a life of their own that could eventually lead to a strike even if that wasn't the original intent. One could also suspect that such threats could lead to a desperate preemptive strike on Iran's part. On the other hand, one could also believe that the Israeli attack will be spectacularly successful: The jets will take off, the bombs will be dropped, the nuclear installations will be destroyed and Iran and its satellites won't dare to retaliate against Israel. Then again, one could reasonably assume that this scenario will not happen.

And so, it must be said: Danger, Israeli attack ahead (possibly). And yes, we can and should fear it, with every fiber of our being

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov:  Foreign interference in domestic conflicts is road to chaos in international relations ~ link ~ Speaking of the moves of foreign players in relation to domestic conflicts Lavrov said: "Military-political instability in certain regions should not become a magnet for the use of force in conditions of the weakening of customary levers of influence of leading nations on international developments."

"Support for some one side to a domestic conflict or another, outside attempts of imposing patterns of political systems is a dangerous road leading to the expansion of zones of instability and strengthening of elements of chaos in international relations. One doesn't have to go far to find examples of that," he said.
Israel will ask to station IAF jets in Cyprus ~ link ~ Israeli and Cypriot officials are planning to discuss allowing the Israeli Air Force to station jets in the neighboring island, Chinese news agency Xinua reported Tuesday.
Americans DO NOT support attack on Iran - video ~ link ~ However, the Americans do not control their own nation anymore...it is controlled by the global banksters and the Zionists.   Stirling      

Israel's silent march to War with Iran ~ link ~ So what is there for the public to think about? Either the Americans are going to bomb Iran and we’ll catch the blowback, or we’ll do it ourselves and we’ll catch the blowback. We certainly can’t let the Iranians get the bomb — they’re Nazis, they’re Shaheeds, they all want to die, they’re having kids and going to work and investing their money with one thing in mind: annihilating the Jews, after which the Jews will annihilate them, all 75 million of them, and they’ll all go to heaven and get their 72 virgins each. We can’t let these kinds of people have nuclear weapons. Only us.

This may be a caricature of Israeli thinking, but it’s based on reality. Between the endless Holocaust analogies; the habit of seeing and hearing only the worst, the scariest, in Muslims anywhere, and the near-total absence of influential dissenting voices, the Israeli public’s mind has been made up on Iran for a long time.

Robert Fisk: From Washington this looks like Syria's 'Benghazi moment', but not from here ~ link ~ President Bashar al-Assad is not about to go. Not yet. Not, maybe, for quite a long time. Newspapers in the Middle East are filled with stories about whether or not this is Assad's "Benghazi moment" – these reports are almost invariably written from Washington or London or Paris – but few in the region understand how we Westerners can get it so wrong. The old saw has to be repeated and repeated: Egypt was not Tunisia; Bahrain was not Egypt; Yemen was not Bahrain; Libya was not Yemen. And Syria is very definitely not Libya.

But look east, and what does Bashar see? Loyal Iran standing with him. Loyal Iraq – Iran's new best friend in the Arab world – refusing to impose sanctions. And to the west, loyal little Lebanon refusing to impose sanctions. Thus from the border of Afghanistan to the Mediterranean, Assad has a straight line of alliances which should prevent, at least, his economic collapse.

The trouble is that the West has been so deluged with stories and lectures and think-tank nonsense about the ghastly Iran and the unfaithful Iraq and the vicious Syria and the frightened Lebanon that it is almost impossible to snap off these delusional pictures and realise that Assad is not alone. That is not to praise Assad or to support his continuation. But it's real.

Russia ready to Defend Iran and Syria ~ link ~ This is serious, very serious!   Stirling     

Leonid Ivashov: These maneuvers and training will demonstrate Russia’s readiness to use military power to defend its national interests and to bolster its political position. The maneuvers will show that Russia does not want any military operations to be waged against Iran or Syria. I assume that the people in the West and in Israel who design the schemes for a large geopolitical operation in the greater Middle East region draw a direct connection between the situation in Syria and in Iran. Indeed, these two countries are allies, and both are considered guaranteed partners of Russia. The only question, therefore, is who they will try to destroy first as a stable country: Syria or Iran.

A strike against Syria or Iran is an indirect strike against Russia and its interests. Russia would lose important positions and allies in the Arab world. Therefore, by defending Syria, Russia is defending its own interests.

In addition, Russia is thus defending the entire world from Fascism. Everybody should acknowledge that Fascism is making strides on our planet. What they did in Libya is nearly identical to what Hitler and his armies did against Poland and then Russia. Today, therefore, Russia is defending the entire world from Fascism.

Russian Foreign Minister receives hero's welcome in Syria ~ link ~ This reminds me of the eve of World War II.   Stirling     

'Hezbollah will choose to strike on Iran' ~ link ~ They will strike because they know that they days are numbered if Syria and Iran go down.   Stirling      

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Tuesday stated that in the event of an Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, Hezbollah would decide itself how to react, rather than taking orders from Tehran.
