Syria Crisis: Western troops 'increasingly likely' to intervene ~ link ~ Which means WORLD WAR III. Stirling
Western military intervention in the Syrian crisis is "looking increasingly likely" because the conflict is now in danger of provoking violence across the Arab world that could lead to cross-border invasions, a report has warned.
"The problem of containing the Syrian conflict, preventing it sparking even greater violence, fragmenting neighbouring countries and even provoking cross-border invasions, is now more urgent than dampening the violence inside Syria itself," says Professor Michael Clarke, RUSI's director general.
China opposed West's bid to overthrow Syrian Government ~ link ~ Actually, that's a understatement. Several high ranking Chinese civilians and military officers have spoken of WWIII and nuclear war if either Syria or Iran are attacked. Stirling
China and Russia have come under fire again for vetoing a United Nations Security Council resolution, brokered by the West, on July 19 that would have paved the way for imposing sanctions on Syria.
As usual, the Western media have held China and Russia accountable for the escalating conflict in Syria. Susan Rice, US permanent representative to the UN, has criticized China and Russia, saying that “history will judge those that three times have blocked (Security) Council action quite harshly”.
Despite the West’s attempt to blame China and Russia, people can tell which countries are actually on the right side of history, act responsibly and truly care for the Syrian people.
As a responsible country, China has been consistent in its position and will never seek to fulfill its own interests on the Syrian issue by supporting or opposing anyone. Instead, China upholds justice and remains committed to maintaining peace and stability in Syria and the Middle East by adhering to the principles governing international relations.
The US/NATO War on Syria: Western Naval Forces Confront Russia Off the Syrian Coast - with photos ~ link ~ Do take the time to read all of this at the link. Stirling
The World is at dangerous crossroads. The shape of this planned naval deployment in the Eastern Mediterranean with US-NATO warships contiguous to those of Russia is unprecedented in recent history.
History tells us that wars are often triggered unexpectedly as a result of "political mistakes" and human error. The latter are all the more likely within the realm of a divisive and corrupt political system in the US and Western Europe.
US-NATO military planning is overseen by a centralised military hierarchy. Command and Control operations are in theory "coordinated" but in practice they are often marked by human error. Intelligence operatives often function independently and outside the realm of political accountability.
Military planners are acutely aware of the dangers of escalation. Syria has significant air defense capabilities as well as ground forces. Syria has been building up its air defense system with the delivery of Russian Pantsir S1 air-defense missiles.
Any form of US-NATO direct military intervention against Syria would destabilize the entire region, potentially leading to escalation over a vast geographical area, extending from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border with Tajikistan and China.
Military planning involves intricate scenarios and war games by both sides including military options pertaining to advanced weapons systems. A Third World War scenario has been contemplated by US-NATO-Israeli military planners since the early 2000.
Freedom is Slavery; Popular Support is Authoritarianism ~ link ~ The Mainstream Media's double-speak.
"Progressive" War Propaganda: Deception with a Human Face ~ link ~ Make no mistake about it, what is unfolding now, a General Middle East War and the Third World War, is pure satanic evil right out of the deepest bowls of Hell itself. Stirling
Beware - Blood Thirsty Zionists Set Final Iran Trap ~ link ~ If it was any more obvious, the headlines would flip and tell the truth for once. But they won’t. Zionist warlord Netanyahu and company are working hard at laying the groundwork for a Mossad attack somewhere with the usual misdirect to those they want to invade and kill as the villains.
Just as they did with 9/11 via complicit oligarchs and their war machine stooges.
And the mindless masses will fall for it. Oh, many are waking up but still not enough to scream the alarm like everyone should. Nevertheless, the alternative media awareness increases daily as do its adherents and those new to the wake up of all this staged insanity.
Israel ups "security" on Syrian border ~ link ~ Remember the large number of IDF reservists called up a couple months ago. Remember the recent increase in IDF troops on the Syrian border. Now they are increasing things all the more. Make no mistake about it, a really terrible war, a global war with WMD, is coming soon, real soon. Stirling

Armed conflict possible in South China Sea ~ link ~ To have a truly global war, you have to have multiple war theaters. The globalists have been busy establishing them! Stirling
Tensions over competing claims in the South China Sea could escalate into conflict, with an arms build-up among rival nations raising the temperature, an international think tank warned Tuesday.
Prospects of solving the disputes "seem to be diminishing" after a recent failure by the 10-nation ASEAN grouping to hammer out a "code of conduct" that would govern actions in the sea, the International Crisis Group (ICG) said.
Forget 'Double Dip' the United Kingdom Is Now in a Depression ~ link ~ With the Olympics about to kick off in all its glorious celebration, the sad reality of UK's GDP shrinking 0.7% as the empire drops further into a double-dip. As Bloomberg Brief notes, this came along with a 5.2% plunge in construction output as the IMF estimates austerity has cut 2.5% off GDP. What is most concerning is that GDP has fallen for five of the last seven quarters and is now 4.5% below pre-crisis levels. The level of disbelief is palpable though since the BoE sees only a 10% chance of this recession lasting into 2013 and while it estimates that it will take until 2014 before the UK gets back to the 2008 level (magically), we note that that is already longer than it took during The Great Depression.

Barofsky on Geithner: "We should see people in handcuffs" ~ link ~ I strongly prefer good old fashioned American 'neck tie parties'...as in Hang the Bastards! Stirling
There is no point in recapping the ongoing vendetta between former SIGTARP Neil Barofsky and former head of the NY Fed, and current Treasury secretary and resident TurboTax expert Tim Geithner. One need but follow the former on Twitter for a quick and concise sampling of the sentiments harbored vis-a-vis the latter. However, in the following interview Barfosky does touch on some points which in the context of the recent Liborgate, should be brought front and center, especially since the increasingly apathetic US audience seems to not care about one bit (as opposed to their distant cousins across the Atlantic for whom Lieborgate has become a daily distraction). Namely, what Barofsky says is that Geithner and other regulators who allowed Lieborgate to proceed should not only lose their job but we should "see [Geithner] in handcuffs." Sadly that will never happen as it would actually be a deterrent to future crime among the highest echelons of America: something which is just not allowed to happen in a system whose very survival is increasingly reliant on rampant criminality.
The Four Horsemen of the High-Tech Apocalypse ~ link ~ But that stuff is mild compared to a CNN post I just stumbled across from May that kicks around the idea that losing our jobs to computers actually might be a good thing. Someone actually muses that, “In my opinion, many of the jobs that are being fought over by unions today are jobs that will be outlawed within several generations as inhumane.”
Really? Tell that to an out-of-work roofer just hoping for a paycheck to get by in 2012.
Of course, you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube. Technology is on the march, and its consequences are unavoidable. So I thought I’d take the natural next step here as an investor. After all, if we’re going to lose our jobs to computers, we might as well invest in the companies that make the job killers … right?
Leaked UN Treaty Does Ban Guns ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ Good luck with trying to disarm a couple hundred million Americans you assholes! Stirling
The text of the anticipated and hotly-contested United Nations Arms Trade Treaty has been leaked, with the treaty itself set to be adopted and signed by member States as early as tomorrow, July 27. President Obama, today joining the chorus for gun control inside the United States in the wake of the Batman massacre, has previously indicated that he would sign the treaty, which would then have to be ratified by the Senate.

Sure, it’s cool and easy to pay for stuff with the wave of a smartphone — but why bother when you could just use your face?
Fast-evolving biometric technologies are promising to deliver the most convenient, secure connection possible between you and your bank account — using your body itself in place of all of those wallets and purses stuffed with cash, change and plastic cards.
The Rise of the Police State and the Absence of Mass Opposition ~ link ~ Do take the time to read this one in full at the link. Stirling
The key to the police state operations of the US in the 21st century is to repress pro-democracy citizens and pre-empt any mass movement without undermining the electoral system, which provides political theater and legitimacy.
