Russia and Iran deepen political and military cooperation ~ linkAgainst the background of continuing fighting in Syria, Russia and Iran have expanded their political and military relations significantly in recent months. The offensive led by the US and its allies in the Middle East, which has destabilised the entire region and threatens to spread to Russia and Iran, is driving both countries into an alliance.
Russia rebuffs Saudi offer to drop Syria support for arms deal - with video ~ link ~ The Saudis only managed to insult and piss off the Russians by this rather stupid tactic.   Stirling    
On Thursday, AFP quoted diplomatic sources as saying that Moscow had rejected an offer by Saudi Arabia to change its stance on Syria in return for a huge arms deal and a promise to increase Moscow’s influence in the Arab countries.

In a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on July 31, Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan offered a package of economic incentives to Russia.

Bandar offered to buy up to USD 15 billion of Russian weapons besides ensuring that Persian Gulf gas would not challenge Russia's gas sales to Europe, according to Syrian opposition sources close to Saudi Arabia.

In return, Riyadh wants Moscow to lessen its support for the Syrian government and no longer block any United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions on Syria.

A former Saudi ambassador to US, Bandar is currently director general of Saudi Intelligence Agency. He is known to have had close ties with former US President George Bush, and was an advocate of the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Some observers believe that Saudi Arabia’s ally, the US, has indeed tasked Bandar bin Sultan with causing unrest in many regional countries including Syria.

On Tuesday, Saudi King Abdullah appointed Bandar bin Sultan’s brother, Prince Salman bin Sultan, as Deputy Defense Minister. Bandar has already worked closely alongside his brother in favor of foreign-backed militants in Syria to topple Syria's Assad. 
Saudi Arabia dangles lucrative arms deal in front of Russia in exchange for dropping Assad ~ link ~ I could have told the Saudi dumbasses that this would backfire BIG TIME...they don't know the Russians, it would appear.   Stirling   
Putin laughs at Saudi offer ~ link ~ Yep!  
One of the more surprising news to hit the tape yesterday was that Saudi Arabia, exasperated and desperate by Russia's relentless support of the Syrian regime and refusal to abandon the Syrian army thus facilitating the Qatari plan to pass its natgas pipeline to Europe under Syria, had quietly approached Putin with a proposal for a huge arms deal and a pledge to boost Russian influence in the Arab world if only Putin would abandon Syria's Assad. It will hardly come as a surprise to anyone that in the aftermath of yesterday's dilettante mistake by Obama which alienated Putin from the western world (and its subservient states such as Saudi Arabia of course), has just said no. It will certainly come as no surprise because as we explained previously, the biggest loser from Russia abandoning Syria (something we predicted would never happen) would be none other than Russia's most important company - Gazprom - which would lose its energy grip over Europe as Qatar replaced it as a nat gas vendor. What is shocking in all of this is that Saudi Arabia was so stupid and/or naive to believe that Putin would voluntarily cede geopolitical control over the insolvent Eurozone, where he has more influence according to some than even the ECB, or Bernanke. Especially in the winter.

Israel's power thirst behind anti-Iran outcries - with video ~ linkIn an exclusive interview with Press TV on Thursday, Richard Becker of the Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER), said Israel sees Iran as “a challenge to its hegemonic aspirations.”

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with US congressional delegations where he repeated Tel Aviv’s nuclear accusations against Tehran and called for more sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
History revisited: Top Roosevelt aide sent Stalin weapons-grade uranium to make nuclear bombs ~ link ~ History and economic-political reality is NOT what most people think it is.  It is far more complex and far worse than most people can even dream of.  It is not an accident that FDR, early in his first term of office, sent the young Soviet Union millions of dollars in gold bullion to save it from bankruptcy.  Why?  FDR was a part of the Global Banking Cartel, their chief political front man in America and they desired it!   Stirling     
Bolshevik Purge of Western Civilization and Rational Discourse (Part II) ~ link ~ Without a doubt, Benjamin Netanyahu is a classic manifestation of the neo-Bolshevik ideology in action. Over the past few years, he has single-handedly and practically ruined the Middle East with his lies and fabrications. More importantly, he has implicitly declared that no political force on earth can actually stop him from accomplishing his ideological goal.
No maritime agreement at ASEAN meeting ~ linkIn another sign of mounting tensions fuelled by the Obama administration’s “pivot to Asia,” China ruled out any immediate commitment to a “Code of Conduct” in the South China Sea at a meeting with Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) foreign ministers meeting in Bangkok last week.
AFL-CIO seeks to broaden income base as membership plummets ~ link ~ The globalists worked hard to gut the unions, in America they especially used the Republican Party as their tool.  The trouble is, for the large number of Americans  that ended up supporting this, is when the great masses of labor can't make a decent livable wage, the entire nation and its economy goes to hell.  This certainly has happened in America.   Stirling
