Breaking News: Turkey places entire Army on high State of Readiness ~ link ~ War tensions over Syria continued to spiral early Thursday, Oct. 11, when Turkey’s armed forces were placed on a state of readiness and its chief of staff pledged stronger response to any hostile act by Syria, A high-placed US source confirmed to debkafile that Turkey had, by forcing a Syrian civilian Airbus A320 plane en route from Moscow to Damascus to land in Ankara and declaring Syrian airspace “unsafe,” taken the first step toward creating a no-fly zone over Syria.

Turkish F-16s intercept Syrian civilian flight from Moscow to Damascus - with video & photos ~ link ~
Although Davutoglu claimed that the plane and passengers were free to go, they had to spend several additional hours grounded as Turkish officials completed a “paperwork routine.” The plane’s crew and passengers told RT that the security units surrounding the plane were attempting to force the pilot and several of the crew to sign papers fraudulently describing the incident as an emergency landing. Some of those who refused were beaten, reports say.

The director of Syria's civil aviation agency told RT that the interception of the civilian plane and the search of its cargo compartment were a breach of the Convention on International Civil Aviation.

The Turkish authorities were interested in some spare parts a businessman had purchased in Russia and was bringing to Syria, Fatima al-Saman, a passenger, told RT. She said that as far as she could tell, they were clearly not weapons. “They started unloading some packages. They opened them, took pictures. There were many people. We all saw what was in there. There were no weapons. It was clear ever to the untrained eye!” she said.
The preliminary information is that out of 35 passengers, there may be 17 Russians on board, children among them,” Maria Zakharova, the chief of the Foreign Ministry’s Information Department, exclusively told RT.

Turkish 'Daily News': Syrian airplane carried military communication devices ~ link ~ Sounds like hand-held two-way radios to me.  The Turks had better get control of the fools running their government.  They are puppets for the globalists and are going to get a lot of Turks killed in WWIII.   Stirling    

A Syrian Air plane forced to land in Ankara’s Esenboğa Airport today carried military communication devices, private news channel CNNTurk reported.

The search on the plane’s cargo revealed no arms or munitions, but some parcels carried by the plane held communications devices used for military purposes, said the report, without giving any further detail.

Turkey/NATO seeking to stop ALL civilian flights over Syria - establishing a No-Fly Zone over all of Syria   ~ link ~ Can you say "World War III"...I knew you could.   Stirling      
debkafile’s military sources: By forcing down the Syrian airbus, Ankara has signaled Damascus that it will henceforth stop civilian air traffic flying through Syrian air space. There is still a question about whether Turkey will extend this aerial blockade to Syrian military air traffic. Furthermore, Iranian civilian aircraft have been running an almost daily airlift of military and logistical equipment from Tehran to Damascus. The new Turkish step, to which Damascus has not yet responded, may portend a clash between Turkey and Iran in the skies over Syria.

They do not rule out the possibility that more anti-Assad governments, such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Persian Gulf emirates may send air strength to back up Turkey’s opening move.

NATO Invasion of Syria: Coming soon, Rated X ~ link ~ The stage is set, the NATO forces are in position and authorization has been given, now all it will take is a little spark to ignite the powder keg that is the Middle East. The West needs a middle-man, a reason to invade Syria, and Turkey is that tool. Statements by both NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and the Turkish Parliament come as a proof.

According to Rick Rozoff at Stop NATO “A week ago the top military commander of NATO, Admiral James Stavridis, paid an unannounced visit to the Turkish capital to meet with Chief of General Staff General Necdet Özel and Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz.” All of this and the mobilization of what is becoming an invasion size force along the Syrian border leaves little doubt what is soon to come.

NATO should stay out of Syrian conflict says Iraq Prime Minister ~ link 

The War on Christianity and Islam ~ link ~ Pay attention to this, please.  Stirling 

The neo-conservative/Christian evangelical political alliance in the United States is fond of using the term “Judeo-Christian” to describe the political philosophic underpinnings of the United States. However, as churches in Israel, Palestine, Russia, and Europe, as well as mosques throughout the world come under attack by arsonists, graffiti artists, and vandals, it is important to point out that it is the Christo-Islamic tenets that are under attack by Israel and those who serve Israel’s interests.

Israeli right-wing Orthodox Jewish settlers have exacted what is called “price tag” vengeance against Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land by attacking churches and mosques. The radical Jews claim that Christian and Muslim places of worship will continue to be vandalized as a “price tag” for attempts to bring about a fully-recognized Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza. The settlers and many members of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s government are in lock-step with the settlers who want to see the West Bank fully incorporated into Israel as “Judea and Samaria,” with the Arab population of Muslims and Christians expelled.

The latest vandalism by Jews against a church involved the stoning attack of the St. George Romanian Orthodox Church in Jerusalem. The attack on the church came as Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean was visiting Israel. Netanyahu raised suspicions about his involvement with the church attacks by refusing to meet with the Romanian foreign minister and personally apologize for the Jewish attack on the Romanian church.

A week prior to the attack on the Romanian church, Jewish vandals spray painted “Jesus son of a whore” and “price tag” on the Roman Catholic Franciscan Order convent adjacent to the Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. And the previous month, Jewish vandals struck again, spray painting “Jesus is a monkey” on the walls of the Trappist monastery in Latrun and trying to set fire to the monastery’s door. Last February, Jewish vandals painted “Death to Christians” and “We will crucify you” in Hebrew on a Baptist church in Jerusalem.

The attacks on the churches follow years of Orthodox Jews in east Jerusalem spitting on Christian clergymen on the streets. A number of mosques were vandalized by Jewish occupiers in the West Bank.

When fifteen American church leaders representing the Methodist, Lutheran, United Church of Christ, the National Council of Churches, and other churches sent a letter to the US Congress calling for the United States to reexamine US military aid to Israel, the Israeli Lobby erupted in anger. Among the Israeli chorus condemning the Christian leaders were the American Jewish Committee, the Rabbinical Assembly, and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs. These Jewish lobbying groups were either silent or sheepishly condemnatory over the Jewish attacks on Christian churches in Israel and the occupied territories.

Reverend Pierbattista Pizzaballa, a Vatican official in the Holy Land, likened the attacks on the churches to the release of the “Innocence of Muslims” movie trailer on YouTube. The film blasphemously portrays Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). It is clear that the Zionist game plan is to launch attacks on Christians and Muslims. Typical of Zionist tactics, the true financiers behind the anti-Muslim movie were masked with blame cast upon Egyptian Coptic right-wing activists in the United States. However, the fingerprints of Jewish-owned and operated Hollywood were all over the film’s production and distribution.

According to RT, the Russian television news network, in Russia and Ukraine, FEMEN-linked protest groups funded by Jewish benefactors, including hedge fund tycoon George Soros and the Brooklyn-born publisher of the Kyiv Post Jed Sunden, have chain sawed crosses and committed acts of hooliganism inside churches. One such gang, the feminist group FEMEN, offered $188 to anyone who cut down a cross. There were reports of crosses being chain sawed across Russia and Ukraine. The FEMEN group videotaped a large cross erected by the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church being toppled in a park in Kyiv. Three female punk rockers with the group “Pussy Riot” were convicted of hooliganism for conducting an anti-Christian demonstration laced with profanity at Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow. FEMEN protesters disrupted services at St. Sophia Cathedral in Kyiv. FEMEN activists have staged chainsaw beheadings of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Pope Benedict XVI, and Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill I. FEMEN activists also staged a lewd protest at the famous Hagia Sofia Mosque in Istanbul.

There has not been one documented incident of FEMEN or their colleagues targeting any Jewish institution, although they claim they are trying to emancipate women from male-dominated religious institutions. Orthodox Jewry represents one of the most misogynistic sects in the world, yet it has escaped from harassment from FEMEN and its ilk.

It is clear that Zionist Jewish money is behind the attacks on Christianity and Islam in the Holy Land and in Europe. The Zionist media has largely succeeded in driving a wedge between Christianity and Islam. However, as Christians wake up to who their real enemies are, the gulf between the followers of Jesus and Mohammad may disappear as more and more Christian leaders have grown tired of their religion being attacked by the modern Pharisees consisting of Netanyahu’s government, the illegal settlers, and Jewish financiers and media moguls. 
East Asia: Japan restores Cold War military alliance with US ~ link ~ The Japanese have the most bought-and-paid-for bunch of whores for leaders than just about anyone.  They have done nothing while Fukushima, with six nuclear reactors and seven nuclear fuel storage pools in critical trouble manage to go from bad to worse to beyond go into full China pollute all of Japan and much of the Pacific for centuries to begin a process that will kill millions of Japanese from radiation illnesses.  And now they sign on to World War III and to a China-Japan War Theater.  Stirling 

'Out of Greece': Greek Military Special Forces reserves march in uniforms, chant in anti-Merkel protest - with video ~ link ~ linkThe specter of armed revolution and military coups is beginning to raise it head in Greece and Spain as the people are waking up to the economic/political/moral violence being done to them by their own political class on behalf of the Global Banking Cartel.  This could change things...of course, this is one major reason why the global banksters want World War III and order to control everybody under war time rules.   Stirling        

Scores of commandos, sailors and paratroopers in their uniforms gathered in Athens on the day of the German Chancellor’s visit – but not to help with keeping the peace. Instead, they staged a march, chanting “Merkel, out of Greece!” Marching in formation, they also chanted "Together, together, Nazis get out!" The crowd in the street supported the reservists with rousing cheers. Many of the viewers joined the protesters in their disciplined march.

The demonstration was one of many anti-Merkel protests to hit Athens on Tuesday, as some 50,000 demonstrators took to the streets. The rallies had strong anti-Nazi sentiment. At one occasion demonstrators burned a swastika.

The many guises of Financial Repression ~ link ~
The term certainly sounds ominous, but it is always mentioned in an off-hand manner that seems to say: 'yes, it is bad, but what can you do? We've got to live with it.'
But what does it actually mean? The simplest, most encompassing explanation is this: it describes various insidious and underhanded methods by which the State intends to rob its citizens of their wealth and income over the coming  years (and perhaps even decades) above and beyond the already onerous burden of taxation and regulatory costs that is crushing them at present.

It is as though a highway robber were not only content with robbing you at gunpoint on the street, but were emptying your bank account by having his associates hack into it at the same time and then visiting you at home to break into your wall safe for good measure.

One would think that people should be up in arms over it and do everything to avert it instead of merely calmly discussing it with a proverbial shrug. How and why has it come to this? Why is there this sudden need for the State to not only openly grab the vast bulk of what its citizens produce, but add to the loot by robbing them by thinly disguised stealth methods as well? There are two main reasons for this: the legacy of the past and the unwillingness to shrink the power and size of the State.

S&P downgrade Spain to BBB-  ~ link ~ Also see ~ linkJust two weeks after Egan-Jones started the party, S&P has downgraded Spain to BBB- (with a negative outlook). As we discussed here when Egan Jones pushed all-in with Spain to CC, of course, Moody's (Baa3 Neg) will likely follow shortly with Fitch (BBB Neg) deciding to avoid the office-raid and keep its French parents happy.

Is the IMF now recommending Capital Controls? ~ link ~ As you probably know, the way the banking system works in most of the world is a complete fraud. Most banks only hold a tiny percentage of their customers’ deposits in cash. The rest is ‘invested’ (gambled) or loaned to a bankrupt government.

This is a high-risk model that only works well when people have tremendous confidence in the system. The moment there are more than a handful of depositors wanting their money back, the bank has a big problem. This is happening nationwide in Spain, so the entire banking system has a problem. Nearly every bank here is technically insolvent… and yet they have droves of customers trying to withdraw funds that aren’t there.

As such, the IMF is now recommending that Spain (and other nations in the eurozone periphery) take action “at the national level” to stem this flight of funds and prevent people from moving money abroad.

Spanish Financial System collapses ~ link

Unsustainable ~ link ~ When it comes to explaining the problems with our economy, one of the hardest things to do is to get people to understand that we are living in an economic fantasy world that is completely and totally unsustainable.  As a nation we consume far more than we produce, we spend far more than we bring in, our debt is growing much faster than our GDP is, our entitlement programs are growing at an exponential rate, our retirement system is a Ponzi scheme and the Federal Reserve is printing money as if there is no tomorrow in a desperate attempt to paper over all of our problems.  But we have all grown so accustomed to the debt-fueled prosperity that we have been enjoying for so many decades that it actually feels "real" to most of us.  Unfortunately, history has shown us that it is simply not possible to grow your debt faster than your economy indefinitely.  At some point your consumption will drop back to a level more equal to your production.    Sometimes that adjustment can be gradual, but other times it can be extremely painful.  In our case, we have been living way above our means for so long that it would take a major economic miracle just to keep our adjustment to an "exceedingly painful" level.  We are living in the largest debt-fueled prosperity bubble in the history of the world, and our unsustainable economy is going to crash and burn at some point.  Hopefully it will be later rather than sooner, but a crash is most definitely coming.
The following are some of the reasons why the bubble economy that we are living in right now is unsustainable....

Toward a "New Great Depression" in America ~ link ~ After the Great Recession of 2008, the approaching “fiscal cliff” at the end of this year threatens to cause even more economic havoc and bring about another recession which some “doom-and-gloom” economists darkly predict may turn into a new Great Depression. The new “normal” state of the economy is marked by a stalled economic recovery, low consumer demand as well as persistently high unemployment engulfing large sectors of the population. The same “gloom-and-doom” economists even claim that the real level of unemployment may be close to the Great Depression level of 25% if one subtracts the number of those gainfully employed from the number of all working-age adults in the active population. But even “optimists” like the IMF’s chief economist Olivier Blanchard insist that economic turmoil will continue and that the global economy may take a decade to recover from the financial crisis.

Stop political corruption ~ link ~ There is no way that Americans can rest easily when they have to work to earn their living to keep their homes and feed their kids, plus keep an eye on their elected officials day in and day out. Corruption in Washington runs so deeply that it has sucked the very life out of our nation. Nothing seems to be fun anymore and people don’t have a good time. They just try to make it from sunrise to sunset, maintaining the status quo.

28 Good Questions that the Mainstream Media Should Be Asking ~ link ~ Here's one for the American public:  Why have you allowed only six companies, owned/controlled by the Global Banking Cartel and run almost exclusively by Zionists, to control 96% of mainstream news media???  Get off your asses and do something!  Stirling   

Why is there so little trust in the mainstream media these days?  CNN ratings have been hovering close to record lows over the past few months.  A recent Gallup survey found that 60 percent of all Americans "have little or no trust" in the mainstream media.  That was a record high according to Gallup.  So why is this happening?  Sadly, the truth is that the mainstream media quit telling the truth a long time ago.  The mainstream media has an agenda, and more Americans than ever are beginning to recognize this.  Once upon a time, control of the news in the United States was at least somewhat decentralized.  But now there are just six giant media corporations that control almost everything that we see, hear and watch.  The version of "the news" that they give us is designed to serve the interests of those corporate giants and the other corporate giants that spend billions of dollars to advertise their products through those outlets.  Watching the news on television can be an extremely frustrating experience these days.  Yes, there are little bits and pieces of the truth in there, but you have to wade through an awful lot of "infotainment" to get to those bits and pieces.  That is one of the reasons why the "alternative media" has absolutely exploded in recent years.  The American people are hungry for the truth, and they are increasingly turning to alternative sources of news on the Internet in an attempt to find it.
