The United States should start to put some political punishment on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is coming over to deliver a speech in Congress in an attempt to undermine these talks.
Israel opens dams flooding parts of Gaza ~ link ~ link ~ More criminal behavior from the hyper-racist nuts in Israel. Stirling
Palestinian officials say hundreds of Gazans were forced to evacuate after Israel opened the gates of several dams on the border with the Gaza Strip, and flooded at least 80 households. Israel has denied the claim as “entirely false.”
France deploys its aircraft carrier, the Charles de Gaulle, against ISIS ~ link ~ There are sufficient aircraft deployed by allied nations to kill off ISIS many times over ... if they really wanted to kill them off. It's all a scam on the road to WWIII. Stirling
"The integration of the Charles de Gaulle in the operation... (in Iraq) begins this morning," a member of Defence Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian's staff told AFP.
French President Francois Hollande told military personnel back then that the Charlie Hebdo massacre “justifies the presence of our aircraft carrier.”
Japanese Crown Prince corrects politicians saying it is important to remember Japanese role in WWII correctly ~ link ~ Such a comment by a senior member of the Imperial Family is VERY rare. It strikes me as this is a veiled way to oppose the moves toward WWIII by the current Japanese Government in union with other globalist controlled nations. Stirling
With the advanced navigation-power equipment that reaches the level for fifth-generation warplanes, the J-10B can also carry the China-made air-to-air missiles that reach the world's top level -- including the active radar guided medium-range missile PL-12 and infrared imaging guided fighting missile PL-10 which are no way inferior to the America-made medium-range missile AIM-120 and "Sidewinder" fighting missile.
If the J-10 is deployed in the Malvinas (Falkland) Island direction, its limited combat radius is worrying, because after all the Malvinas (Falkland) Island is 500 kilometers away from the mainland of Argentina. But the J-10B has the flight-refuel function, and this is not a big problem if the refueling aircraft is also introduced.
Analysts say a collapse of the deal would revive fears of a Greek exit from the euro.
The Math Doesn't Add Up ~ link ~
Oh, you didn’t notice that World War Three is underway, actually has been for more than year? Well, that’s because most of it has been taking place in the banking sector, which for most people is just an alternative universe of math. The catch, which many people either miss or don’t care about, is that the math doesn’t add up.
For instance, the runaway choo-choo train of linked European sovereign bond obligations with its overloaded caboose of interest rate swaps and other janky derivatives of mass destruction. That train left the station in Athens a few weeks ago bound for Frankfurt. Ever since, the German government and its cohorts in the EU, the ECB, and the IMF have been issuing reassurances that the choo choo train will not blow up when it reaches its destination.
Few people grok that Greece is an entity with an economy not much bigger than North Carolina’s, yet it is burdened with roughly $350 billion of old debt that will never be paid back. The only thing at issue is how it will not be paid back, that is, what mode of pretense will be employed to disguise the inability to pay back this debt. The mode du jour has been the crude one of lending Greece more money to pay back the interest on the old debt. A seven-year-old ought to be able to understand where that leads.
Sir Malcolm Rifkind, MP and Jack Straw, MP have their party whips withdrawn over Cash-for-Access sting ~ link ~ This has the potential of a major scandal hitting the two largest British political parties in the run up to this Spring's elections! This brings back memories of the Cash-for-Peerages scandal, that with my help, forced 'Phony Tony' Blair to resign as PM. Jack Straw was one of the jerks that I had to deal with in my battle to bring my family's ancient Scottish titles out of dormancy. Stirling
