Hezbollah chief: Syria's friends won't let it fall into US and allies hands ~ link ~ “Syria has real friends in the region and the world that will not let Syria fall into the hands of America, Israel or Takfiri groups; they will not let this happen,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech in Beirut on Tuesday.
He added that the efforts made by the Western and some Arab countries, which support the militants in Syria, are aimed at pulling Damascus out of the regional axis of resistance [against Israel].
“One can confidently say that the goal of all those behind the unrest in Syria is to destroy the Syrian state, people, society, and army in order to turn Syria into a failed state that cannot make decisions concerning its oil, gas, and assets,” he noted.
Hezbollah chief said the fact that the unrest in Syria has continued for two years indicates that the government in Damascus cannot be defeated through military means.
Syrian UN envoy: Militants carry out new chemical attack near Idlib ~ link ~ Syria’s Ambassador to the United Nations says the foreign-backed militants in the Arab country have used chemical material against civilians during an attack on a town near Idlib.
Bashar al-Jaafari said at a press conference on Tuesday that the militants spread the contents of plastic bags containing chemical material during the attack.
Many residents were affected by the armed groups’ “heinous and irresponsible act,” the Syrian envoy said, warning that it was an attempt to “implicate the Syrian government on a false basis.”
The envoy went on to say that 'today or tomorrow Ankara and Western media would launch a new propaganda campaign against Damascus and claim that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons against its own people.'
USA is engaged in a Muslim Religious War - On the side of Islamic Jihadis ~ link ~ The globalists and Zionists want to get the Muslims to kill one another and the Christians and Muslims to kill one another!!! Stirling
Bush knew of innocence of Gitmo inmates - with video ~ link ~ Between the Bush and Obama administrations and all the False Flag events and the horror of Gitmo and the various other CIA prisons, a significant number of senior people need to be charged with treason and war crimes!!! Stirling
“Something like that should be tried in The Hague just because that is definitely a war crime. At its peak, Guantanamo housed up to 730 detainees. Right now, there are 86 that have been definitely cleared to leave and that really is a legal travesty,” said Noor Mir, member of CodePink.
The comment came as Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, chief of staff of former Secretary of State Colin Powell, revealed last month that former US President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld fully knew that many Guantanamo Bay prisoners were not guilty.
Wilkerson added that former Bush officials were reluctant to release the innocent prisoners because of possible political repercussions, a move that critics are accusing US President Barack Obama of continuing today.
“[Obama] has completely turned a blind eye to it. I would say that he is as complicit to this as Bush and Cheney. When we say ‘arrest Bush and Cheney’, we should also be saying ‘arrest Barack Obama’,” said Mir.Most of the 166 detainees currently held at the Guantanamo Bay prison have been cleared for release or were never charged - a situation that has attracted outcry from certain countries and human rights organizations.
On February 5, some 130 prisoners began a hunger strike to protest against prison conditions and the detainees’ indefinite confinement.

Syria: Upping the Stakes ~ link ~ They urge intervention short of troops on the ground. The White House and Pentagon have concerns about Syrian air defenses. Joint Chiefs chairman General Martin Dempsey calls them the single biggest obstacle to US intervention. Since 2007, Russia’s been involved in upgrading them. US officials believe its technicians provide assistance on the ground. According to US intelligence, Russia began shipping SA-22 Pantsir-S1 units to Syria. It’s a combination surface-to-air missile and 30 mm antiaircraft gun. It has a digital targeting system. It’s mounted on a combat vehicle. It’s mobile, easy to move and conceal.
In 2009, Moscow began upgrading Syria’s outdated analog SA-3 surface-to-air missile systems. SA-26 Pechora-2M systems replaced them. They have a 17-mile operational range. Syria’s SA-5 also concerns Washington. Their operational range is 175 miles. They can take out US planes from Cyprus. It’s a NATO base used during Libyan bombings.
Washington looks to send Syrian "rebels" aid with "direct military purpose" ~ link ~ We have 100 million Americas out of work and one of every five families in America on Food Stamps, but we are throwing money away for the globalists and Zionists in their crazy demonic drive towards World War III. Beyond insane!!! Stirling

The Boston Bombings swing in Israel's and the NeoCon's Favor ~ link ~ The neo-con ideology promotes endless war, but neo-cons fight their battles with the blood of others. From the comfortable, subsidized offices of magazines like the Weekly Standard, the neo-conservatives urge the United States to engage in endless war – to be fought by the victims of the ‘poverty draft’ from states where there are few jobs. Ironically, these young people cannot find more productive work because the Federal Reserve’s endless money printing to keep the war machine turning has destroyed our economy.”—U.S. Representative Ron Paul
20 Signs that the Next Great Economic Depression HAS ALREADY STARTED in Europe ~ link ~ The next Great Depression is already happening - it just hasn't reached the United States yet. Things in Europe just continue to get worse and worse, and yet most people in the United States still don't get it. All the time I have people ask me when the "economic collapse" is going to happen. Well, for ages I have been warning that the next major wave of the ongoing economic collapse would begin in Europe, and that is exactly what is happening. In fact, both Greece and Spain already have levels of unemployment that are greater than anything the U.S. experienced during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Pay close attention to what is happening over there, because it is coming here too. You see, the truth is that Europe is a lot like the United States. We are both drowning in unprecedented levels of debt, and we both have overleveraged banking systems that resemble a house of cards. The reason why the U.S. does not look like Europe yet is because we have thrown all caution to the wind. The Federal Reserve is printing money as if there is no tomorrow and the U.S. government is savagely destroying the future that our children and our grandchildren were supposed to have by stealing more than 100 million dollars from them every single hour of every single day. We have gone "all in" on kicking the can down the road even though it means destroying the future of America. But the alternative scares the living daylights out of our politicians. When nations such as Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy tried to slow down the rate at which their debts were rising, the results were absolutely devastating. A full-blown economic depression is raging across southern Europe and it is rapidly spreading into northern Europe. Eventually it will spread to the rest of the globe as well.
The following are 20 signs that the next Great Depression has already started in Europe...
The organisers are demanding an end to spending cuts and tax rises.
Thousands rally against European austerity on May Day ~ link ~ The reason for "May Day" as a socialist/communist day is that was the day that a Rothschild agent established the Illuminati in 1776. Stirling
Thousands protest against austerity in Europe ~ link ~ Labour Day - or May Day - has triggered protests against harsh government spending cuts around the world, with some demonstrations turning violent.
Thousands rally against European austerity in May Day protests ~ link ~ Trains and ferries were cancelled and hospital staff walked off the job in Greece on Wednesday and thousands were due to demonstrate across Spain as May Day triggered protests against harsh government spending cuts.
Separately, Turkish riot police fired water cannon and tear gas to disperse crowds gathering in central Istanbul for a rally on what has become a traditional labour holiday.
Greeks stage anti-austerity strike ~ link ~ The 24-hour strike officially began at midnight. Trains and ferries are at a standstill, other public transport is disrupted and hospitals are working with reduced staff. However, many shops will stay open as the labour day public holiday has been moved to next Tuesday – after Orthodox Easter.
In Athens, hundreds of people rallied outside parliament in Syntagma Square, waving flags and banners.

Bail-Out is Out - Bail-In is In ~ link ~ The crossing of the Rubicon into the confiscation of depositor funds was not a one-off emergency measure limited to Cyprus. Similar “bail-in” policies are now appearing in multiple countries.
What triggered the new rules may have been a series of game-changing events including the refusal of Iceland to bail out its banks and their depositors; Bank of America’s commingling of its ominously risky derivatives arm with its depository arm over the objections of the FDIC; and the fact that most EU banks are now insolvent.
A crisis in a major nation such as Spain or Italy could lead to a chain of defaults beyond anyone’s control, and beyond the ability of federal deposit insurance schemes to reimburse depositors.
US employment slide biggest since 2008 ~ link ~ The government says we are in a "recovery" from a "recession"...they don't lie do they? Answer: Only when they open their mouths! Stirling
