France says Geneva Syria Plan implies Assad must go ~ link ~ I said that the globalist controlled nations would hype up a false claim that the "agreement" requires that Assad must leave. From there the next step is to claim, again falsely, that the Syrians are not following the Geneva Plan which they agreed to and that the 'only option' now is military force. Same crap - different day and different nation (same as in Libya and their claims of what the UN Security Council resolution said vs. what it really said). Stirling
An Open Letter to Prime Minister Erdogan concerning the survival of Turkey ~ link ~ Good One - take the time to read it all at the link. Stirling
Turkey’s military released a statement on Sunday, saying six jets were sent to the area on Saturday, The Associated Press reported.
Barclays and other large banks – including Citigroup, HSBC, J.P. Morgan Chase, Lloyds,Bank of America, UBS, Royal Bank of Scotland– manipulated the world’s primary interest rate (Libor) which virtually every adjustable-rate investment globally is pegged to.
That means they manipulated a good chunk of the world economy.
[T]he eurozone’s bailout fund (backed by taxpayers’ money) will be taking a stake in failed banks.
Risk has been increased. German taxpayers have increased their liabilities. In future a bank crash will no longer fall on the shoulders of national treasuries but on the European Stability Mechanism (ESM), a fund to which Germany contributes the most.
In the short term, these measures will ease pressure in the markets. However there is currently only 500bn euros assigned to the ESM. That may get swallowed up quickly and the markets may demand more. It is still unclear just how deep the holes in the eurozone’s banks are.
Mexico's President-Elect to seek progress on reforms ~ link ~ Any true reform in Mexico would be great. It has long been a 'poster board' for failed corrupt Third World nations. Stirling
Who does Tony Blair think he is ~ link ~ I think that the bum is very lucky that he and several close associates did not end up going to prison for the 'Cash for Peerages' Scandal. I play a key behind the scenes role in forcing him out of office. If you want the story, check out my book either on-line or hard copy [CASH FOR PEERAGES - THE SMOKING GUN] ~ link
