NATO launches "War Games" in Mediterranean amid tensions with Syria ~ link ~ NATO’s joint maritime group is flexing its muscle in the eastern Mediterranean Sea by conducting anti-terrorism drills as tensions between NATO member Turkey and its neighbor Syria escalate. 

The admiral said the group will be heading from Istanbul further into the Mediterranean on July 7. The force currently consists of three frigates from Turkey, Germany and France. The ships are armed with 76-mm and 27-mm guns, Mark 46 anti-submarine torpedoes, surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles and carry helicopters. They are manned by 545 sailors in total.

Israel's Losing Battle ~ link ~ This is a very good short article, good analysis of the present/future environment for Israel. Do take the time to read it all at the link.   Stirling   
The immunity of Israel to carry on the policies it has in the past and its ability to continue them in the present rest on two pillars:

One of those pillars is material. By "material" we mean financial and military aid to Israel and the cynical interests that lead the industrial-military complex in the world to support it. Israel's hold on the means to finance arms spending also leads political elites and financial elites to support it, and so on.

The other pillar is the moral/ethical one. For a vast majority of the members of the Israeli intellectual, political and economic elite, this pillar is very important. It may not interest the more religious, orthodox part of the community, but for secular Westernized Israelis it is very important.
Syria destroys five Turkish cargo trucks inside Syria - Syrian 'opposition' was involved on the side of the Turkish trucks ~ link ~ Actually the Syrians are getting real good at defending their territory and killing the hell out of the foreign mercenaries.   Stirling      
Syrian soldiers destroyed five Turkish cargo trucks in Azez neighborhood of Syria's Aleppo, in the border region between Syria and Turkey on Wednesday, local daily Milliyet reported on Thursday.

The truck drivers managed to escape and reached the Turkish border with the help of Syrian opposition.
Israel Adopts the Israel Paradigm ~ link ~ A tiny minority is doing so much to destroy the very nation that has opened its arms to them!  Stirling      
I recently read a fascinating article by Scott McConnell, “The Special Relationship With Israel: Is It Worth the Cost?,” which appeared in the spring 2012 Middle East Policy Council Journal. Even for those of us who have closely followed the issue of Israel’s asymmetrical relationship with the United States, Scott provides some unique insights. He observes, for example, that the result of the “special relationship” between the United States and Israel has been the wholesale adoption of Israeli policies and viewpoints by Washington’s policymakers and pundits. As Scott puts it, there exists “a transmission belt, conveying Israeli ideas on how the United States should conduct itself in a contested and volatile part of the world. To a great extent, a receptive American political class now views the Middle East and their country’s role in it through Israel’s eyes.”

I would add that Israel has not only shaped America’s perceptions, it has also supported policies both overseas and domestically that have fundamentally shifted how the United States sees itself and how the rest of the world sees the United States. This is most evident in failed national security policies, damaging interactions with the Muslim world, and the loss of basic liberties at home because of legislation like the PATRIOT Act. Israel and its powerful lobby have been instrumental in entangling Washington in a constant state of war overseas while at the same time planting the seeds for a national security state at home. In short, the end product of the relationship is that the United States has abandoned many liberties, constitutional restraints, and its rule of law to become more like Israel.

Canadians protest against endless wars as Western backed Destabilization in Syria THREATENS WORLD PEACE  - with video ~ link ~ The Middle East is heating up. Using Libya as a template, hardcore Western destabilization has been slowly simmering Syria for the past 16 months. Demonization and destabilization of Iran has been an ongoing theme for decades.

Many observers are now humoring the possibility that the globalist dreams of a 3rd World War may actually come to fruition. An epic battle between good and evil is being fought right now, and if things escalate it could turn thermo-nuclear. The world is growing increasingly hostile.

In these quickly evolving situations, it is useful to recall that at any moment Iran has the option to close the Strait of Hormuz, which would be devastating especially if in concert with the planned implosion of the world’s economy. It is also safe to assume that in such a situation the ongoing weather-wars that have ensued under the radar would likewise be ramped up.

Clinton says no going back in Syria ~ link ~ This satanic evil hate-filled dike just cannot wait to get World War III going!   Stirling    Also see: Clinton on Syria - Astounding Lies, Zero Legitimacy ~ link

IDF threatening to destroy entire Lebanese villages if war breaks out ~ link ~  When your religious belief system tells you that everyone not born of a Jewish mother is just a two-legged soulless animal and that killing them is not murder, raping them is not rape, and stealing from them is not stealing...then killing massive numbers of unarmed civilians including old people, women and children is 'no big deal'.   Stirling     

The Goldstone report which criticized Israel's operation against Hamas in the Gaza Strip in 2009, will pale in comparison to what will happen to Lebanon in a future war with Hezbollah, a senior IDF officer in the Northern Command said on Thursday.

"The destruction will be greater in Lebanon than in Israel and the amount of explosives which will fall there will be far more than what will fall here...We will need to be strong and aggressive," the officer said.

IDF will 'destroy' any Lebanese village that fires rockets if war breaks out ~ link ~ And judging from the War Crimes that the IDF committed during the Second Lebanon War (like spreading thousands of 'toys' on the ground that blew off limbs of children picking them up) they will be very 'liberal' in defining what villages 'fired on them'.  By the way, this is the type of waring that you issue shortly before a war look out folks, its coming soon.  Stirling      

Israel will launch a brutal war against Lebanon if provoked by Hezbollah, senior Israel Defense Forces officers warned Thursday.

Though the northern border has remained mostly quiet since the end of the Second Lebanon War six years ago, Northern Command officers remain leery of hostilities breaking out again, especially as tensions with Iran remain high and Syria continues to spiral out of control.

The Biggest Financial Scam in World History ~ link ~ So why are the top officers at these corrupt Big Banks not in prison???   Stirling     

There have been numerous  big banking scandals recently.
But the Libor scandal is the biggest financial scam in world history.   See this and this.

The former CEO of Barclays said today that banks across the  world were fixing interest rates in the run-up to the  financial crisis.

Yes, activism works: European Parliament votes down ACTA by wide margin ~ link ~ In a surprising and exciting move, the European Parliament refused to ratify the freedom-crushing Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) anti-piracy treaty by a massive 478 to 39 vote with 165 abstentions. According to none other than the Associated Press, the move came “after concern that it would limit Internet freedom sparked street protests in cities across Europe.”

This comes after the treaty was approved by every single one of the 27 EU heads of government in December 2011, but clearly the formal approval process wasn’t nearly as easy.
