We live in a time when to be an alarmist is to be a realist. 

The size of the coming global war will equal the size of the global debt, and the global debt is the largest in human history.

Why have a color code?  Well I have a tendency to want to highlight really important things so I use this system.  Also, this is a low-cost one-man news blog and I simply want to add some color to the site and also help to group stories.  Tim Earl of Stirling   


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.

The real message is that Washington is treating the Persian Gulf like an American lake under conditions in which the US and its European allies are ratcheting up economic sanctions that more and more resemble a blockade, an act of war.

US sends additional ships and fighter jets to Gulf ~ link

Israel as Mad Dog ~ linkThe 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.

It is, in fact, difficult to conclude that Israel has in any way been seriously restrained by its relationship with the US. On the contrary, Washington has provided it with the resources and political cover to enable it to act recklessly. If one considers events in Lebanon, the war against Iraq, the current drive to bring about a civil war in Syria leading to the breakup of that country, and the near constant urging to attack Iran, it might instead be argued that Israel’s influence over Washington has evolved to such a point that it is no longer taking the lead on aggressive military operations because it is able to have the United States do the fighting and dying for it.

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 is preparations for the coming regional war/WWIII.   Stirling     

The Navy has doubled the number of minesweepers assigned to the region, to eight vessels, in what military officers describe as a purely defensive move.

Over recent weeks, additional F-22 and F/A-18 warplanes have moved into two separate bases in the Gulf to bolster the combat jets already in the region and the carrier strike groups that are on constant tours. And the Navy, after a crash development program, has moved a converted amphibious transport and docking ship, the Ponce, into the Gulf to serve as the Pentagon's first floating staging base. 

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.

Sadly, although the idea of state sovereignty is at the heart of the UN Charter, that organization has served consistently to undermine rather than bolster that bulwark against the internationalist tyranny of the global elites. The final nail in the coffin of sovereignty was the heinous 2005 “Responsibility to Protect” initiative. Under the guise of defending against “genocide,” this R2P as it became known was in fact a license to bomb to submission any state still resisting the post-sovereign era. As we learned in Libya, R2P was itself a farce, as the “threat” of genocide became sufficient cause for an attack on a sovereign state. An armed, global pre-crime bureau.

Iran test-fires missiles in 'war of nerves' ~ link Iran said on Tuesday it had successfully tested medium-range missiles capable of hitting Israel as a response to threats of attack, the latest move in a war of nerves with the West.

Israel says it could attack Iran if diplomacy fails to secure a halt to its disputed nuclear energy program. The United States also has military force as a possible option but has repeatedly encouraged the Israelis to be patient while new economic sanctions are implemented against Iran.

German Defense Minister restructuring Army for worldwide operations ~ link ~ Getting ready for "the Big One"...WWIII.   Stirling      

Last Saturday the German Defence Minister Thomas de Maiziere (Christian Democratic Union-CDU) told German radio that in principle the German army could carry out military operations anywhere in the world.

The criteria for such interventions, he continued, must be based on how high the price would be in terms of "money and blood", and what other factors should be considered. "We cannot simply say it’s none of our business," the minister said. "Those days are long gone following 1990."

The Wake-Up May Be Too Late ~ link ~ Is it possible that Americans are finally waking up to the dangers resulting from Washington’s involvement in Israel’s foreign policy? In the New York Times on June 24th there was an astonishing feature opinion piece by Professor Misha Glenny writing from London about “A Weapon We Can’t Control.” The editorial slammed the “decision by the United States and Israel to develop and then deploy the Stuxnet computer worm against an Iranian nuclear facility,” describing the development as a “significant and dangerous turning point in the gradual militarization of the internet.” Glenny warned that to use such a devastating weapon in peacetime will “very likely lead to the spread of similar and still more powerful offensive cyberweaponry across the Internet,” also noting that “virus developers generally lose control of their inventions, which will inevitably seek out and attack the networks of innocent parties.”

Glenny also mentioned the second generation Flame virus, developed jointly by Israel and the US, and which has now spread to computers throughout the Middle East.

US expands military intervention into Yemen ~ link ~ The War Whores who run America: War, more war, and even more war.  They will not stop until they have destroyed the entire world.   Stirling     
Under the guise of the “war on terror,” the Obama administration is expanding US military operations in Yemen through stepped-up drone attacks and special operations forces on the ground.

What is being presented as a US offensive against the local Al Qaeda affiliate, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), is in reality a direct military intervention to prop up the widely despised regime of President Mansour al-Hadi, which confronts a developing civil war throughout the country. The Yemeni military is fighting armed tribal and Islamist forces, particularly in the south and, reportedly, southern separatist armed groups and protesters.

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.

The sums involved in the manipulation of Libor (the London inter-bank lending rate) and its European equivalent, Euribor, are staggering. The most conservative estimate of the money accrued to the world’s top banks by these practices is £48 billion ($75 billion).

Time for an Economic Nuremberg ~ link ~ As Britain’s economy continues to smoulder isn’t it time for Miliband’s former colleagues in the wretched Labour government of 1997 to 2010, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, and Ed Balls, to face a reckoning for the continuing damage they wrought upon the nation?

Nine Big Banks give US their 'living wills' ~ link ~ Nine of the largest U.S. banks have submitted plans offering blueprints for how the government could break up and sell off their assets if they are in danger of failing.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. released summaries of the "living wills" this week for Bank of America, Barclays, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and UBS.

CERN experiments observes particle consistent with long-sought Higgs Boson ~ link ~ At a seminar held at CERN today (July 4) as a curtain raiser to the year's major particle physics conference, ICHEP2012 in Melbourne, the ATLAS and CMS experiments presented their latest preliminary results in the search for the long sought Higgs particle. Both experiments observe a new particle in the mass region around 125-126 GeV.
