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     



Syrian truce shattered as five killed in Damascus car bombing ~ link ~ A powerful car bomb exploded in Damascus on Friday, inflicting many casualties and buffeting a shaky temporary truce in the Syrian conflict on the occasion of a Muslim religious holiday.

State television said the "terrorist car bomb" had killed five people and wounded 32, according to "preliminary figures".

Damascus car bomb wrecks Syrian Eid al-Adha truce ~ link ~ The Syrian Government honored the truce, but the foreign terrorists have not...that says something about the nature of the people that the Syrians are fighting.   Stirling     
Syrian Army and foreign "insurgents" clash in Aleppo despite ceasefire ~ link ~ Clashes were reported in Aleppo’s Ashrafiah, Aqil, Bab al-Naser and Qastal Harami districts. Meanwhile, at least 11 Syrian soldiers were injured in a bomb attack in Dara’a. 
Foreign terrorists attack Syrian Army checkpoints despite ceasefire ~ link ~ According to the army, insurgents attacked checkpoints in Damascus, Dara'a, Homs and Idlib on Friday hours after a four-day ceasefire to mark the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) took effect.

A car bomb also exploded in the southern Damascus neighborhood of Daf Shawk, killing at least five people and injuring over 35 others. Most of the victims are reported to be civilians.

The Syrian army, however, has said that it will continue to respect the truce, adding that government forces were responding to attacks by armed groups that were in violation of the ceasefire. The Syrian army had repeatedly warned that it would respond if armed groups carry out attacks or reinforce their positions, or if fighters cross into the country.

"Armed terrorist groups attacked military positions, thereby clearly violating the halt to military operations agreed by the army command. Our valiant armed forces are responding to these violations and pursuing these groups," the military said in a statement read on state television.

The truce was proposed by UN and Arab League envoy, Lakhdar Brahimi, after which violence appeared to have died down and calm returned to most parts of Syria.

The international community has piled pressure on all sides involved in the Syrian unrest to respect the truce and a senior Arab League official said on Friday that it appeared to be holding. Previous attempts at ceasefires in Syria had collapsed. 
UK officials reject US request to use British bases against Iran ~ link ~ Also see ~ linkBritish officials have reportedly rejected a request made by the United States to use its military bases in the UK as staging grounds for a possible attack on Iran.

According to
The Guardian, the British government spurned the request citing advice from the attorney general’s office that such an attack could violate international law.

"The UK would be in breach of international law if it facilitated what amounted to a preemptive strike on Iran," a senior Whitehall source told
The Guardian.

"It is explicit. The government has been using this to push back against the Americans," the source added.

The report also said that US diplomats have lobbied for the use of British bases in Cyprus, and for permission to fly from US bases on Ascension Island in the Atlantic Ocean and Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, both of which are British territories.
The United States, Israel and some of their allies accuse Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program with Tel Aviv recently stepping up its threats against the Islamic Republic.

Haaretz: "Netanyahu and Lieberman's joint ballot marks the dawn of a dark day" ~ link ~ The Antichrist joints forces with the one leading Israeli politician that is nutter than he is!  It is the dawn of the end for Israel if they vote these jerks back in!!!   Stirling   

The ball is in the court of the many egotists of the center-left. Will they finally learn how to offer a suitable response to the joint forces of the ultra-Orthodox and the joint forces of the nationalists?

Benjamin Netanyahu thinks Avigdor Lieberman is a dangerous man. Lieberman thinks Netanyahu is a miserable excuse for a man. But yesterday, these two men, who loath and distrust each other, decided to join forces. And at the same time, they made the State of Israel an even more dangerous and wretched place than it was before. 

Shifting Israeli political alliances ~ link ~ Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu enhanced his Likud’s chances of winning Israel’s January election by signing up Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s Israel Beitenu for a joint ticket, called “Likud Beitenu.”

They reacted by slamming the new alliance as hard line, hawkish, ultra-nationalist and capitalist. One voiced astonishment at the prime minister “getting in bed with an admirer of Vladimir Putin.”

America's Perpetual War Machine ~ link ~ Needless to say, the American people did not heed Ike’s warning.  When Eisenhower left the White House in 1961, the Pentagon’s annual budget was around $50 billion.  This was during the Cold War when the U.S. faced the combined powers of Soviet Russia and Red China. Today, the country has no credible geopolitical foes yet it is still is in the thrall of the military industrial complex, spending more than $700 billion per year on “defense.”

To provide a point of reference consider that the U.S. has only 5% of the world’s population yet its military budget constitutes 50% of the world’s total military expenditure, spending more on the military than the next 19 biggest spending nations combined.
