War on Iran & Syria: What They Are NOT Telling Us ~ link

Emerging US-Iran nuclear deal endangers Israel ~ link ~ BULLSHIT! This is the Netanyahu position and it is all a scam. Stirling
US and Iran seek closer ties alongside nuclear program ~ link ~ Another Israeli story line. If the US government is so determined to 'kiss and make up' with Iran, WHY is it doing all it can to bring down Syria's Assad and to create a war there??? The bullshit level coming from Israel is beyond outrageous. This tiny nation, that continues to steal land from its neighbors and keeps the Palestinian people in giant concentration camps (Gaza and the other Occupied Territories) is itself the root of so very much of the grave dangers facing the world... Israel and the Global Banking Cartel. Stirling
Congress opens door for US war with Iran ~ link ~
Israel's Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Weapons ~ link ~ Think about it. The most aggressive nation in the Middle East, the one with a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, is not subject to any international sanctions or threats of war, but a nation that has not invaded anyone for almost two centuries with no nuclear weapons is subject to vast international sanctions and is soon to be attacked.

Israel tests new weapons in combat. Against Lebanon in 2006 and Gaza during Cast Lead, it used direct energy weapons, chemical and/or biological agents, and others producing injuries and symptoms medical professionals never previously saw.
For example, bodies with dead tissue had no apparent wounds. Corpses were found shrunken. Civilians had heavy lower limb damage requiring amputations. Nonetheless, unstoppable necrosis followed (death of cells and living tissue) followed by death.
Internal wounds had no trace of shrapnel. Corpses were blackened but not burned. Some badly wounded victims didn’t bleed. The Palestinian health ministry said Israel used a new type explosive in Gaza. It contained toxins and radioactive materials. They burned and tore victims’ bodies from the inside. They also left long term deformations.
A Palestinian doctor accused Israel of using chemical ammunition that burns and injures soft tissue, but can’t be traced by X-rays. Severe internal wounds were reported. Unknown gases believed to be nerve agents were used. Those affected lost consciousness for about 24 hours. They experienced high fevers and muscle rigidity. Some needed urgent blood transfusions.
In Gaza, white phosphorous was used. It burns flesh to the bone. Depleted uranium spread radioactive contamination. Close-range explosives caused severe injuries, requiring amputations. Children had legs cut off, abdomens sliced open, or died because nothing could save them.
NDAA reignites Cold War with Russia - Opens door for Hot War with Iran ~ link
Putin and Obama square off as Russian troops mass to counter US attack on Iran ~ link ~ We continue to march headfirst into the worst nightmare of the Human Race. Stirling
$642 Billion for the Military? This year? You must be kidding! ~ link ~ With $88 billion authorized to continue the war in Afghanistan. Barbara Lee has introduced a clear amendment (#158) to cut all funding except for the purpose of withdrawing all of our troops safely from Afghanistan. Representatives McGovern, Conyers, Kucinich, Frank and others have introduced strong amendments aimed at stopping the war, preventing a military confrontation with Iran, curtailing the use of drones and cutting the size of the budget. (Not certain which of these amendments the Republican majority will allow on the floor.)

House passes stealth legislation for Israel ~ link ~ Go to Google and type in “H.R. 4133.” You will discover that, apart from a handful of blogs and alternative news sites, not a single mainstream medium has reported the story of a congressional bill that might well have major impact on the conduct of United States foreign policy. H.R. 4133, the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012, was introduced into the House of Representatives of the 112th Congress on March 5 “to express the sense of Congress regarding the United States-Israel strategic relationship, to direct the president to submit to Congress reports on United States actions to enhance this relationship and to assist in the defense of Israel, and for other purposes.” The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) reportedly helped draft the bill, and its co-sponsors include Republicans Eric Cantor and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Democrats Howard Berman and Steny Hoyer. Hoyer is the Democratic whip in the House of Representatives, where Cantor is majority leader. Ros-Lehtinen heads the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Beware False Flag attack on Chicago NATO Summit by US War Criminal - with video ~ link ~ Imagine that you are an evil advisor to the criminal 1%, and faced with this problem: the 99% are developing geometrically-increasing recognition of the 1%’s “emperor has no clothes” obvious War Crimes and economic looting, despite corporate media’s propaganda to lie and distract from those crimes (full documentation here, PuppetGov video to see it here).
- deliver a false flag attack greater than 9/11,
- plant evidence to blame Iran and domestic terrorist “leaders” (who are also the most effective at exposing the 1%’s crimes),
- implement NDAA 2012 to “disappear” domestic threats to the 1%’s control, now and ongoingly as needed,
- initiate war on Iran.
On March 10, the broadcast of IRIB international channels on the Hotbird satellite was interrupted for two hours.
On January 19, British technicians operating from Bahrain also sent jamming signals to block IRIB channels on the Hotbird satellite, including provincial channels and a number of international channels such as Press TV, Al-Alam, Al-Kowsar, Jam-e Jam and Sahar.
The measure, sponsored by Reps. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and Justin Amash (R-Mich.), had been backed by a mix of conservatives, moderates and liberals who argued that letting the president decide to detain anyone — including Americans — deemed to be a terrorist was granting the executive too much power. And they argued that with more than 400 terrorists having been tried and convicted in civilian courts while dozens of plots were prevented, the law was unnecessary.
The most immediate solutions proposed by the reactionaries are, of course, austerity measures which take the form of closing thousands of rural post office branches, ending Saturday delivery, increasing prices, and downsizing staff.
The peaceful rally on Saturday was organized by the anti-capitalist movement known as "Blockupy Frankfurt."
Police said people marched through the city center to protest against the dominance of banks and “untamed capitalism.”
Although some attest to the safety of artificial sweeteners like aspartame, these sweeteners have actually been shown to cause considerable harm.
The Saturday attack against Bahraini protesters came ahead of the 13th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of rights records concerning 14 countries, including Bahrain, scheduled to be held in Geneva from May 21 to June 4.
Meanwhile, the Saudi-backed Bahraini forces continue their violent crackdown on peaceful anti-regime demonstrations.
Bahraini police used sound grenades and tear gas to disperse a similar demonstration near the capital, Manama, on May 18.
