Iran: We will destroy 35 US bases in region if attacked ~ link ~ Our "leaders" are willing to accept the losses...after all its not their butts that will get killed and maimed...or their children. Stirling
10,000 Foreign mercenaries enter Syria with highly sophisticated weapons ~ link ~ American, French and British tax dollars at work, heading the world towards a new global war with 21st Century weapons of mass destruction. Stirling
US escalates military threat against Iran ~ link ~ Whether or not these are the real intentions of the US military buildup, the effect is to put a hair trigger on the threat of an armed confrontation that could provoke a devastating and potentially nuclear war with untold consequences in terms of human life, physical destruction and economic disruption throughout the region and internationally.

Israel as Mad Dog ~ link ~ The argument made by Roth and McConnell assumes that while Israel might be an irrational player, Washington is not and is acting out of self-interest. I am not really convinced that either congress or the White House is intelligent enough, collectively speaking, to have carefully thought through the possible consequences of a rogue Israel, therefore responding preventively to the mad dog in the room. American politicians have difficulty in seeing beyond their own very narrow personal self-interest, which is certainly why Mitt Romney has just announced that he will be making his fourth trip to Israel before the Tampa GOP nominating convention. He will hope for a photo op or two to make him look like an experienced foreign hand while receiving his marching orders on what is acceptable from Netanyahu. He will not be thinking of what a reckless Israel might do if Washington were not restraining it, a formulation that would never enter into his tiny mind.
Netanyahu worked inside nuclear smuggling ring ~ link ~ A March 2012 statement by the co-authors of Confidential claims that “Hollywood mega-producer and former secret agent Arnon Milchan has been asked directly by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres to avoid any public discussion of the book Confidential, asserting that the matter is too sensitive at this time.” Although the book’s authors point to the escalating tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, Netanyahu’s own hands-on involvement in nuclear weapons–related covert action against America is presumably a far more compelling reason for the gag order.
US boosts Persian Gulf forces in warning to Iran ~ link ~ This is NOT a warning...it is preparations for the coming regional war/WWIII. Stirling
Kofi Annan delivering two soverign nations to the NWO ~ link ~ The CIA’s favorite ”peacemaker” Kofi Annan has followed his assigned script very well. This weekend he hosted an international conference of bloodthirsty busybodies to decide what is best for Syria, a once-sovereign state that found itself in the crosshairs of the regime-changers.

Libor manipulation scandal engulfs 16 Top Banks ~ link ~ The Libor scandal, thus far focused on British-based Barclays bank, has revealed that global capitalism functions not as a free market, but as a rigged market controlled by contending groups of corporations, cartels and multi-billionaire speculators.
