Dubai - An Architectural Paradise! Dubai is a city-state in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate of the same name. The emirate of Dubai is located southeast of the Persian Gulf on the Arabian Peninsula and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. Today, Dubai has emerged as a cosmopolitan metropolis that has grown steadily to become a Global City and a business and cultural hub of the Middle East and the Persian Gulf region. photos of dubai Although Dubai's economy was historically built on the oil industry, the emirate's Western-style model of business drives its economy with the main revenues now coming from tourism, Real Estate, and financial services.

The city has become symbolic for its skyscrapers and high-rise buildings, such as the world's tallest Burj Khalifa, in addition to ambitious development projects including man-made islands, hotels, and some of ...
sunni and shia factual basis The vicious schism between Sunni and Shia has been poisoning Islam for 1,400 years - and it's getting worse The conflict actually began in the year 632 with the death of the Prophet Mohamed. The same is true of the violence, tension or oppression currently gripping the Muslim world from Iraq and Iran, though Egypt, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia to Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan. A single problem lies behind all that friction and hostility. On Tuesday, Britain's leading Muslim politician, the Foreign Office minister Baroness Warsi, obliquely addressed it in a speech she made in Oman, the Arab state at the south-east corner of the Arabian Peninsula strategically positioned at the mouth of the Persian Gulf. The religious tolerance of the Sultanate, she suggested, offered a model for the whole of the Islamic world. It certainly needs such an exemplar of openness and acceptance. What most of the crucibles of conflict in the Middle East have in common is that Sunni Muslims are on one si ...
So I've seen some post about Arab money invested in FOX news. Well for one thing our government needs to approve ownership of the media, and is it any worse then our politicians being dependant on Arab money. Five Democrats and their Middle East donors April 8, 2014 Jimmy Carter—Carter accepted $1 million from the Bin Laden family for his Carter Center presidential library. Carter also received a multi-million dollar loan in the late 1970s to save his peanut business—a loan which was backstopped by BCCI, the Pakistani-operated, Persian Gulf-funded bank that became embroiled in international corruption scandals and was ultimately shut down. BCCI officials had relationships with Osama Bin Laden, gave nuclear secrets to Pakistan, and served as the depository for money made off the Arab oil embargo. Bert Lance, a Carter administration official and close personal friend of Carter’s, was forced to resign during Carter’s presidency for improper banking relationships with BCCI. More recently, Carter refus ...

U.S. Conspiracy to Initiate the War Against Iraq Brian Becker Even before the first day of the Persian Gulf crisis George Bush and the Pentagon wanted to wage war against Iraq. What was the character of this war? Iraq neither attacked nor threatened the United States. We believe that this was a war to redivide and redistribute the fabulous markets and resources of the Middle East, in other words this was an imperialist war. The Bush administration, on behalf of the giant oil corporations and banks, sought to strengthen its domination of this strategic region. It did this in league with the former colonial powers of the region, namely Britain and France, and in opposition to the Iraqi people's claim on their own land and especially their natural resources. As is customary in such wars, the government is compelled to mask the truth about the war - both its origin and goals and the nature of the "enemy" - in order to win over the people of this country. That's why it is important to get the facts. There is a ...

Commodities Waking Up Because Of Events In Iraq? :McxInvestor.com Markets have been quite complacent as of late, proven by incredibly low volatility across all asset classes (chart here and here). However, volatility could now start picking up with a potential crisis flaring up in the Middle East. On Saturday, the Guardian reported recent US reactions toward the Iraq Crisis. The US is sending an aircraft carrier and two guided missile ships into the Persian Gulf, bolstering sea and airpower before a possible US strike on the jihadist army in Iraq in the coming days. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the USS George HW Bush into the Gulf on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama indicated he would soon decide on air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis), whose seizure of Sunni Iraqi cities has violently upended the region. The 103,000-tonne warship and its air wing, which had been patrolling the North Arabian Sea and earlier this year were used in the Mediterranean follow ...
NATO’s Terror Hordes in Iraq a Pretext for Syria Invasion All roads lead to Baghdad and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is following them all, north from Syria and Turkey to south. Reading Western headlines, two fact-deficient narratives have begun gaining traction. The first is that this constitutes a “failure” of US policy in the Middle East, an alibi as to how the US and its NATO partners should in no way be seen as complicit in the current coordinated, massive, immensely funded and heavily armed terror blitzkrieg toward Baghdad. The second is how ISIS appears to have “sprung” from the sand dunes and date trees as a nearly professional military traveling in convoys of matching Toyota trucks without explanation. In actuality, ISIS is the product of a joint NATO-GCC conspiracy stretching back as far as 2007 where US-Saudi policymakers sought to ignite a region-wide sectarian war to purge the Middle East of Iran’s arch of influence stretching from its borders, across Syria and Iraq, ...
Normally, I wouldn't have a dog in the fight. However, my stomping grounds lately are establishments that cater to the expat crowd in countries all around the Persian Gulf/Middle East. Understandably, this has me torqued up a bit. Just last week there was a restaurant bombing in Djibouti, a place frequented by my friends on many occasions. I don't say all this to raise alarm, or to make it out to be more than it is. However, there's an awful lot of anti-terrorism/force-protection training that's *coming back* to me from memory.
US, Persian Gulf monarchies seeking to weaken Iraq: Nashmi Press TV has conducted an interview with Ali al-Nashmi, a political commentator from the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, to share his thoughts on the deadly wave of violence across the Middle East country.

I think and many officials and many Iraqi people, they thought; one of the main supporters of that violence are the groups coming from the Persian Gulf, or the politic (political establishments) of the Persian Gulf, especially Qatar and Saudi Arabia because those countries do not want [this] kind of sect (Shia) ruling in Iraq, they want some Sunni rulers in Iraq because they have a dream, they have sectarian dream, they have sectaria ...

The entire Middle East is exploding in the headlines of today's news. Not only are these countries important from geopolitical, economic and military aspects, but Biblically, they occupy a unique position in prophecy fulfilling, and yet to be fulfilled. The area is rich in oil, a vital need of the modern industrial world, and it also holds a highly strategic position: the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean area, and especially the Gulf of Oman and the Straits of Hormuz, being particularly important. Almost Two-thirds of the world's oil lies near this region, so that with millions of gallons of oil being produced and shipped via these waterways, they constitute the jugular veins of the industrial nations. Europe and Japan receive over 90% of their oil from this vital area of the Middle East; the US around 25%. Let these supplies dry up and those nations would find their economic and political stability threatened. Because of its vital importance, both Russia and the West View with greatest suspicion the involve ...
Ansari is a Nesbat in Middle East and South Asia. It originates from Ansar the Medinan people that helped Islamic Prophet Muhammad when he migrated from Mecca to Medina. The literal meaning of Ansar is supporters. Arabic Usage The name itself is not used as a surname among Arabs, patronymics is used instead. The word is added as a title to the end of the name, if one has an ancestor who was an Ansar. This kind of use of a name is called "Nesbat" in Arabic, meaning "relation". In modern times, however, the surname Al-Ansari is widely used in many Persian Gulf and Arab nations. Iranian Usage In contrast, Iranians use surnames instead of Patronymics. In Iran, it has become a surname, since Iranian use surnames. This has also happened with the "Tabatabai", also originally a Nesbat. Pakistani and Indian Usage The Ansari surname goes as far as being used in Pakistan, northern India and Bangladesh, to show a lineage or ancestral link to the Ansar of Medina. Through the various waves of migration from the Arabian ...

Amnesty urges Obama to criticize Saudi human rights record Amnesty International urged on US President Barack Obama to break silence on human rights violations in Saudi Arabia during his visit to the country on Friday. The London-based rights group called on Obama to take a firm stance against discrimination and systematic violations in the Persian Gulf kingdom. Obama was also asked to express dismay at restrictions on women’s driving as his brief visit to Riyadh coincides with a campaign against the driving ban in the country. Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that forbids women to drive. “It is crucial that President Obama sends a strong message to the government of Saudi Arabia that its gross human rights violations and systematic discrimination are unacceptable. A failure to do so would undermine the human rights principles the USA purports to stand for,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International. “For too long, the US ...
Still in Development: A Film Culture in Dubai DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — When the heiress Paris Hilton traveled here in June and July to audition female friends for her show “My New BFF,” her producers had access to state-of-the-art studios and a government eager to import a touch of Hollywood glamour to the Middle East. But to adhere to the region’s Islamic norms, many of the ingredients in reality TV were taboo: there would be no drinking, no cursing, no dramatic displays of affection. The producers thought about filming a scene at a water park, but passed on the option of dressing the contestants in religiously appropriate swimwear. dubaipost.info Dubai, its rival Abu Dhabi and other Persian Gulf cities face enormous hurdles as they try to diversify their economies by fostering creativity and becoming entertainment capitals. Chief among those hurdles: they operate under Islamic law. Hollywood does not. So far, the oil-rich countries have proved more able to pay for fancy media productions an ...
Chechnya ( 3000 - 8000 BC ): The Magas lived in the Caucasus dating back to 8000 BC. The Nakhs lived in the area between the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf. About 2500 BC; the Assyrians start farming the Middle East ( farther away from Babylon). In 376 AD; the Visigoths leave Central Europe for Spain; chased by the Huns (steppes of Russia). About 450 AD, after Attila the Hun dies, the Magyars move into Hungary. The Slavs migrate towards Greece in the 800s.
Bluster. I assume this is primarily a show for the benefit of the rest of the Middle Eastern world, designed to show who has the muscle in the region. And I assume the Iranians are feeling their oats in part because they have no expectation that Obama will make them pay for acting like this. On Saturday, they sent their warships to the foot of our maritime borders. Whatever the reason, they're only getting bolder as we move into Day 3 of . . . whatever this is: A top Iranian Navy commander has stepped up threats against the US, vowing to sink America's Fifth Fleet in the Middle East if provoked. The threats came after Iran reportedly deployed warships, apparently in response to America's movement of ships into Iranian territory. According to a senior naval commander, Afshin Rezayee, the Iranian deployment of a destroyer and a helicopter-carrying supply ship was a direct response to the presence of American naval forces in the Persian Gulf. The Fifth Fleet of the United States Navy is responsible for naval ...
This Day in Auto History 2.8.1964 The Iraqi National Oil Company was incorporated in Baghdad. Oil wealth would make Iraq an important player in the politics of the Middle East for the next three decades. The fear of losing access to Arab oil, a fear that marked all U.S. policy to the Middle East following the 1973 Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) embargo, drove the U.S. government to heavily support Iraq's war effort against Iran during the 1980s. However, America's friendly relationship with Iraq ended in 1990 with the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, another oil wealthy Persian Gulf state friendly to the United States.
I called a hardheaded realist, a Harvard trained PhD who has been watching the Middle East professionally for decades, to ask him about Obama's Iran deal. This is what he told me. It's done. Iran will get a bomb. They want a bomb and they will not be denied unless somebody stops them. Obama does not want to stop them. He does not want a friendly regime in Iran. He wants Iran as a counterforce to America and Israel. Obama is not a Muslim, but he is a radical. He sees the U.S. and Israel as imperialistic and oppressive. He doesn't like the U.S. military. He'd cut it to nothing if he could get away with it. We'll have to pull our troops and our aircraft carriers out of the Persian Gulf. We'll lose our ability to protect Middle Eastern oil. The Gulf Arabs will have to cooperate with Iran. So will Europe; they depend on that oil. The Iranians want the ascendance of Shia Islam. People don't remember, but when Ayatollah Khomeini took over, he sent Revolutionary Guards to Saudi Arabia and they seized Mecca. Frenc ...
Iranian Canadian Congress Persian Gulf A Letter to Honourable John Baird ABOUT THE IRANIAN CANADIAN CONGRESS The ICC was formed in 2007 as a non-profit and non-partisan organization dedicated to improving the lives of Iranian-Canadians by promoting and protecting their rights and interests and encouraging their participation in Canadian society. The Honourable John Baird, P.C., M.P. The Minister of Foreign Affairs On behalf of the Board of the Iranian Canadian Congress (ICC) I am writing to express our concern about your reference to Persian Gulf as Arabian Gulf in your speech to the US Chamber of Commerce on January 16, 2014. Minister Baird, the term Arabian Gulf is historically incorrect, politically charged, and ethnically divisive. The term "Arabian Gulf" was originally devised to create division between Arabs and non-Arabs in the Middle East by Pan-Arabism movements approximately fifty years ago. It has since been used as a propaganda tool to foster dissension and instability within the region. Ira . ...

Its sole land border is with Saudi Arabia. The rest of its territory is surrounded by the Persian Gulf. A strait in the Persian Gulf separates Qatar from the nearby island state of Bahrain.

ISRAEL UPDATE DECEMBER Remember when Israel bombed the 2 ammo depots at Aleppo? Near these 2 sites is Iran’s major chemical weapon storage site. On October 15 a convoy of over 100 trucks was spotted hauling chemical weapons to the south, Israel is watching this situation. Russia sold SA-8 (NATO designation) ground to air missiles to Syria. From the hills of Syria, these missiles could shoot down aircraft in the traffic patterns of all the Israeli Air Bases as well as the International Airport. Israel said repeatedly that they would never permit these missiles to become operational. The Israeli Air Force made a feint into southern Lebanon and turned into Syria and destroyed 2 TELs (transporter, erector, launcher) with 6 missiles each and associated RADAR equipment. Obama and Kerry have suddenly replaced Israel with Iran as America’s No. 1 ally in the Middle East and Persian Gulf. Obama and Kerry secretly agreed to elevate Iran to the status of 7th world power as a strong inducement for signing the ...
WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON IN THE MIDDLE EAST? READ BELOW; ***Energy Events in Progress Many are the deceptive and destructive events in the energy world, whose dots must be connected in order to make sense of the dizzying array of events. The new marginal oil producer is Russia, no longer the Saudis, who typically have lied about any excess capacity for several years. The giant Russian oil firm Rosneft (twice the size of Exxon-Mobil) just acquired from Morgan Stanley the energy trading platform. Look for them to control the crude oil price, now that the Petro-Dollar is going to sunset. With the advent of the Shanghai crude oil futures contract priced in Yuan terms, expect great changes to the Persian Gulf structural equation and balance of power. In truly perverse events unfolding, watch the Saudis be painted as the new terrorists in the Middle East. Their objectives were thwarted in Syria, where their agents dispensed chemical weapons. The dutiful Western press laid blame without proof on the Syrian loyali ...
Fwd: Iran, From Enemy to Ally - NYTimes.com LONDON — THE recent nuclear deal with Iran has caused a predictable furor among Middle East hawks. But it offers an opportunity for a much bigger breakthrough: rapprochement and, eventually, even strategic cooperation with Iran. International alliances morph and shift; relationships freeze and unfreeze. For the last 30 years American-Iranian relations have been stuck in a cycle of suspicion and mistrust, to the detriment of both countries. America must now begin to think about a gradual realignment of its Middle East Policy, one that aims to reintegrate Iran into the international fold and, over time, transform an enemy into an ally. It won’t be easy. But, in the long term, it would be good for the United States, Israel and the Iranian people. There are many benefits. Iran, which sits between the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf, can check Chinese access to critical energy sources, while acting as a buffer against an ever-truculent Russia. It also affects ev ...
Press TV:The US Department of Defense has approved the sale of thousands of anti-tank missiles to Saudi Arabia amid Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel’s visit to the Middle East. On Thursday, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress that it had approved Riyadh's request for nearly 14,000 tube-launched, optically tracked wire-guided (TOW) missiles and more than 1,700 similar missiles in two separate deals valued at nearly $1.1 billion. "The proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a critical partner who has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability in the Middle East," DSCA said. Hagel, who arrived in Bahrain on Thursday, reassured American allies in the region that Washington would not change its military policy. On Friday, he said that the United States has no plans to scale back its military deployments or arms sales to the Persian Gulf States. “I will assure our partners ...
Hagel in Middle East, defends U.S. outreach to Iran in bid to reassure allies in Persian Gulf
By Dr. Guy Bechor     The United States' status in the Middle East hasn't reached such a low in many years, so low that Secretary of State John Kerry has actually become a persona non grata in most of the region's countries. It's not just President Barack Obama's failed policy, which has turned the friends of the US into its enemies or made them fear it; it's also Kerry's personality. He wouldn't dare travel to North African countries, for clear fear for his life. Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf see him as a concrete threat on the survival of the regimes and as the person who sold them to Iran. He made a five-minute stop in Egypt and escaped as fast as he could. The Turks are reluctant to talk to him after, as they believe, he sold them to Assad, whose own survival he himself agreed to just several days after defining him as "the new Hitler."   Kerry is a persona non grata among the Palestinians as well. Perhaps Kerry should go to the Gaza Strip, which he cares so much about? Or perhaps to Lebanon, o ...
Fear and Loathing in the Kingdom How Washington stabbed the Saudis in the back, and why the Iran deal will start a nuclear arms race in the Persian Gulf. BY JOHN HANNAH | NOVEMBER 29, 2013 Pundits and policymakers are missing the big worry about the Obama administration's Iranian nuclear deal: its greatest impact is not ensuring that Iran doesn't get the bomb, but that the Saudis will. Indeed, the risk of arms race in the Middle East -- on a nuclear hair trigger -- just went up rather dramatically. And it increasingly looks like the coming Sunni-Shiite war will be nuclearized. Two aspects of the agreement, in particular, will consolidate Saudi fears that an Iranian bomb is now almost certainly coming to a theater near them. First, the pre-emptive concession that the comprehensive solution still to be negotiated will leave Iran with a permanent capability to enrich uranium -- the key component of any program to develop nuclear weapons. In the blink of an eye, and without adequate notice or explanation to k ...
Gary Bayer today on the Iran deal Obama Cuts A Deal With Tehran Speaking at the White House late Saturday night, Barack Obama announced that a deal had been reached with Iran. The agreement, according to the president, "cut off Iran's most likely path to a bomb." Few seem to share the president's enthusiasm. Only two countries praised this deal -- Iran itself and its client state Syria. The news of this agreement was greeted with dismay in Jerusalem, Riyadh and the capitals of other Middle East and Persian Gulf States. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did not mince words, blasting the agreement as "a historic mistake." Netanyahu added, "Iran is committed to Israel's destruction, and Israel has the right and the obligation to defend itself… I want to make clear as the prime minister of Israel, Israel will not allow Iran to develop a military nuclear capability." British media report that senior Saudi officials are furious. A top advisor to the Saudi royal family said, "We were lied to (by Obama) ...

In 1966, the Boeing 747 was made with US airlines in mind. Its new plane, out this week, is all about the Middle East
"Until Obama became president, the consensus view of the US foreign policy establishment and of both major parties was that the US had a permanent interest in being the hegemonic power in the Middle East. US hegemony ensured three permanent US national security interests: preventing enemy regimes and terror groups from acquiring the means to cause catastrophic harm; ensuring the smooth flow of petroleum products through the Persian Gulf and the Suez Canal; and demonstrating the credibility of American power by ensuring the security of US allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia. The third interest was an essential foundation of US deterrence of the Soviets during the Cold War, and of the Chinese over the past decade." -CAROLINE B.

Natural Saltwater Pearls Natural pearls are extremely rare. The Arabian Gulf is the most important source for natural pearls – 70-80 percent of all pearls came from there until the 1950s. The island of Bahrain was a centre for trade with northwest India and what is now the modern Middle East. A 4,000-year-old pearl was uncovered in 1989, and excavations at the ancient Bahrain’s Dilmun settlement have confirmed that pearl fishing has been going on for at least 3,000 years. Natural, saltwater pearls from the Arabian Gulf come from the Pinctada radiata and Pinctada margaritifera. Persian Gulf pearls range in color from white to dark cream and tend to be more yellow than those from the Red Sea and Strait of Manaar, whose characteristic colors are very light yellow, cream and very light pink. The Red Sea also produces some pearls in darker hues that range from intense pink to light to dark violet. Natural saltwater natural pearls are also found occasionally in Baja California, Venezuela, Myanmar, China, Ja ...
Persian Language History and Origins of Persian (Parsi or Farsi) and Dari-Persian language By: UCLA, Language Materials Projects ersian is spoken today primarily in Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan, but was historically a more widely understood language in an area ranging from the Middle East to India. Significant populations of speakers in other Persian Gulf countries (Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Republic of Yemen and the United Arab Emirates), as well as large communities around the World. Total numbers of speakers is high: about 55% of Iran's population are Persian speakers; about 65% of Tajikistan's population are Tajik-Persian speakers: over 25% of the Afghanistan's population are Dari-Persian speakers; and about 1% of the population of Pakistan are Dari-Persian speakers as well.

Where is America's support for Israel? 6. US Removing Navy From Mid-East As Russia Enters by Ari Yashar The American aircraft carrier USS Nimitz was recalled from the Persian Gulf on Friday, along with the destroyer USS Graveley from the Mediterranean Sea. The move comes less than a week after Russia sent its most powerful warships to the Mediterranean. Al Jazeera reports the Nimitz moved through the Suez Canal into the Red Sea, and is anticipated to reach the US in late December. It was scheduled to return in August but was left in the region for a military presence. The US ships were assigned to the region months ago as US President Barack Obama considered a military strike on Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime. On Friday the US Defense Department announced their removal, signalling the Obama administration's total abandonment of a Syrian military option. The move further signals a weakening of US military presence in the Middle East, precisely as Russia stands to heighten its influence. Following c ...
Kerry: Saudi Arabia ‘very important’ ally: US Secretary of State John Kerry has praised Saudi Arabia as a "very, very important" ally as he visited the kingdom in an attempt to ease tensions recently raised between the two countries over US policy on the Middle East. "The Saudis are very, very important to all of us. The Saudis are really the senior player in the Arab World together with Egypt," he said Monday in remarks to US Embassy staff in Riyadh. "We have very important things to talk about to make sure the Saudi-US relationship is on track, rolling forward and doing things that we need to accomplish," Reuters quoted him as saying. He told reporters later in the day that US ties with Saudi Arabia are "strategic and enduring” and that there is “no difference in our mutually agreed upon goal in Syria," according to AFP. Washington's relationship with the Saudis was crucial as the Middle East faced changes and challenges from the transition in Egypt to unrest in Syria. One of the key differences ...
It's Time For Washington To Tell Saudi Arabia To Pound Sand By Doug Bandow November 02, 2013 "Information Clearing House - "Forbes" -- Saudi Arabia is angry with Washington. In Riyadh’s view, the U.S. government isn’t doing enough to support tyranny and war in the Middle East. The Obama administration should tell America’s foreign “friends” that Washington acts in the interests of the American people, not corrupt dictators. Riyadh long has been an embarrassment for the U.S. Cooperation on issues of mutual interest is a reasonable approach in a region where there are distressingly few genuine “good guys.” However, U.S. officials have gone much further, lavishing support and attention on their Saudi counterparts. Indeed, Washington treats the Saudi royals—who oppress and mulct their own people—as, well, royalty. Riyadh’s former ambassador to America, Bandar bin-Sultan, became one of Washington’s most celebrated and renowned political operators. Some Americans justify Washington ...

I just arrived home from Qatar an hour ago. Our flight today was 14 hours and 4 minutes direct from the Middle East. It is always those last 4 hours that kill you. After we took off out Doha this morning we flew straight up the Persian Gulf, Saudi Arabia out the left side of the aircraft, Iran out the right side. Within an hour we had flown directly over Kuwait City and then directly over Baghdad. I don't really look out the window any more but today I found the routing to be fascinating. Glad to be home now though. I cannot eat anymore airplane food!
"China's capacity to exert pressure on the Iranian regime is considerable. Apart from its interest in avoiding nuclear proliferation in the Persian Gulf, China has a number of points of conflict with Iran. The one that should keep Tehran on its toes is the Islamic Republic's border with Pakistan. Iran announced October 26 that it had hanged 16 alleged Sunni rebels in Baluchistan province on the Pakistani border, the latest in a long series of violent incidents." -David P.

DAY 15 Iraq, Middle East Population: 27,499,638 Political Leader: President Jalal Talabani Religions: Islam 96.9%, Christianity 1.6%, Other 1.5% Location: The Republic of Iraq, usually known as Iraq, is a country in the Middle East spanning most of the northwestern end of the Zagros mountain range, the eastern part of the Syrian Desert and the northern part of the Arabian Desert. It shares borders with Kuwait and Saudi Arabia to the south, Jordan to the west, Syria to the northwest, Turkey to the north, and Iran to the east. It has a very narrow section of coastline at Umm Qasr on the Persian Gulf. There are two major flowing rivers: the Tigris and the Euphrates. These provide Iraq with agriculturally capable land and contrast with the desert landscape that covers most of the Middle East. Iraq is comparable in size to the U.S. state of California. The capital city, Baghdad, is in the center-east. Iraq's rich history dates back to ancient Mesopotamia. Challenges for Christians: Iraq is ranked No. 21 among ...

Approval, but the civil war has now led to far more casualties, to the billion Muslims around the world it is time you confront this Muslim-on-Muslim violence, the Middle East, Persian Gulf States, parts of Africa is burning in the name of Islam, Enough is enough
MYTH: Attacking Iran will create more instability in the Middle East. FACT More instability?! Have the proponents of this idea been following the news for the last two years? Even in the best of times, the Middle East is an unstable region because of ongoing disputes between various Arab states. Now, an increased level of chaos has spread across the region as a result of upheavals in North Africa, Yemen and the Persian Gulf, continuing unrest in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a bloody civil war in Syria. Among the possible worst case scenarios, it is conceivable that a military strike on Iran would cause a backlash among peoples in the region angered by an attack on a Muslim nation; it may unite the Iranian people in defense of their country; or, current rulers of conservative regimes may come under attack for complicity in the attack. The consequences of a strike could, however, have positive consequences for the region. The Israeli military strikes on nuclear facilities in Iraq (1981) and Syria (2007), for e ...
The Italian Job How the Pentagon Is Using Your Tax Dollars to Turn Italy into a Launching Pad for the Wars of Today and Tomorrow By David Vine October 03, 2013 "Information Clearing House - The Pentagon has spent the last two decades plowing hundreds of millions of tax dollars into military bases in Italy, turning the country into an increasingly important center for U.S. military power. Especially since the start of the Global War on Terror in 2001, the military has been shifting its European center of gravity south from Germany, where the overwhelming majority of U.S. forces in the region have been stationed since the end of World War II. In the process, the Pentagon has turned the Italian peninsula into a launching pad for future wars in Africa, the Middle East, and beyond. At bases in Naples, Aviano, Sicily, Pisa, and Vicenza, among others, the military has spent more than $2 billion on construction alone since the end of the Cold War -- and that figure doesn’t include billions more on classified co ...
Imagining a Remapped Middle East By ROBIN WRIGH THE map of the modern Middle East, a political and economic pivot in the international order, is in tatters. Syria’s ruinous war is the turning point. But the centrifugal forces of rival beliefs, tribes and ethnicities — empowered by unintended consequences of the Arab Spring — are also pulling apart a region defined by European colonial powers a century ago and defended by Arab autocrats ever sinc Multimedia Graphic How 5 Countries Could Beco A different map would be a strategic game changer for just about everybody, potentially reconfiguring alliances, security challenges, trade and energy flows for much of the world, too. Syria’s prime location and muscle make it the strategic center of the Middle East. But it is a complex country, rich in religious and ethnic variety, and therefore fragile. After independence, Syria reeled from more than a half-dozen coups between 1949 and 1970, when the Assad dynasty seized full control. Now, after 30 months of ...

The 250,000 native Qataris are the world's richest people, with an average annual income of about $400,000. That's because the tiny Arab nation, a Connecticut-size peninsula jutting out from Saudi Arabia into the Persian Gulf, sits on the world's third-largest natural-gas reserves. That resource has enabled pint-size Qatar (pronounced KUH-tr, not ka-TAR) to employ 92 percent of its citizens in government-funded jobs, and to fund an outsize role in the world. Since 2011, the emirate has spent at least $17 billion supporting Arab Spring revolts and bankrolling Islamist groups across the Middle East. In Europe, the ruling Al Thani family has snapped up skyscrapers, soccer clubs, and banks. In the U.S., the country has given generously to the Brookings Institution, an influential think tank, including $2.5 million in 2012. Last month, the emirate launched Al Jazeera America, an offshoot of Qatar's international news network. "Qatar wants to be the [Arab World's] next superpower," said Fawaz Gerges, a Middle E ...

Oil dips towards $105 as supply concerns ease * Egypt army topples president, announces transition * US crude stocks post biggest summertime drop in 13 years * Coming Up: ECB interest rates decision, Oil slipped on Thursday from a two-week high above $106 a barrel after Egypt's Armed Forces toppled its president, easing concerns over the threat of supply disruption in the Middle East. The risk that turmoil in Egypt could destabilise the Middle East as well as a tightening in the U.S. oil market had sent prices higher this week. But the Suez Canal, a vital waterway for oil shipments, was not affected by the unrest. "It is too early to say that the situation has calmed down, but the safe operation of the Suez, which is in the interest of both Persian Gulf countries and oil-consuming nations, seems to be guaranteed," Tamas Varga, an analyst at oil brokers PVM, said. Brent crude fell 50 cents to $105.26 a barrel by 0850 GMT, after rising as high as $106.03 on Wednesday. U.S. crude slipped 37 cents to $100.87, ...
One Big Gasoline Bomb Excerpt from the book “The Oil Kings How the U.S. Iran, and Saudi Arabia Changed the Balance of Power in the Middle East by Andrew Scott Cooper Page 19 Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi was a hard man to say no to in the spring of 1969. Everything had turned in his and Iran's favor in recent years. The United States was mired in a punishing land war in Vietnam, one that had bitterly divided the American Home front and exposed the perils of trying to enforce a Pax Americana on the unruly outer edges of empire. Nixon had promised to end the war and draw down the American presence in East Asia. The problem for Washington was that Great Britain had made a similar pledge to pull out of the Persian Gulf by the end of 1971, leaving the Asian continent’s western flank vulnerable to seizure or subversion from radicals and mischief makers aligned with the Soviet Union. The cash strapped British were ending more than a century of gunboat diplomacy in an area that held two thirds of the world’s . ...

Colombian Mercenaries Get An Unwelcome Compliment Since September 11, 2001, countries with well trained and experienced combat personnel have had to face growing problems with private security companies serving corporate or national (especially in the Middle East and South America) employers recruiting their best troops. Colombia is the latest to complain, as an American security company, forming a special “counter-terrorism” force for the Persian Gulf state of Abu Dhabi recruited several hundred of their most experienced army and special operations troops. Recently retired veterans of the Colombian security forces were also sought. The chief attraction was the money, which was about five times what they were making in Colombia. This (up to $3,000 a month or more) was still cheaper than what Western troops with similar experience were asking. This was not a critical loss, as the Colombian Armed Forces now contain over 400,000 personnel. But it was annoying, legal, and will probably happen again. Over ...
Book review: Most people in the world today believe Bush's war against Saddam Hussein is only about oil. Iraq has the second biggest petroleum reserves in the Middle East, and America's relations with its prime supplier Saudi Arabia have turned sour in the wake of 9/11. Invading Iraq, so many argue, is merely colonising an oil field. Oil has transformed the world and remains the most important resource of our age. It has made the wealth of millions of people - from Venezuela to Norway via the Persian Gulf - and holds their futures in its fortunes. The Middle East is the earth's greatest petroleum depot. It is also the most explosive region in the world today. Now more than ever, with the global economy under severe threat, oil is of prime geopolitical concern. Crude Power provides a comprehensive analysis both of the world's dependency on Middle Eastern oil, and of the very dangerous way politics and economics play themselves out in the oil game - as producers and consumers tug at each others' interests. ...
Biological Proof Is Found for Gulf War Illnesses In the two decades since the 1991 Persian Gulf War, medical researchers have struggled to explain a mysterious amalgam of problems in thousands of Gulf War veterans, including joint pain, physical malaise and gastroin- testinal disorders. In some medi- cal circles, the symptoms were thought to be psychological, the result of combat stress. Studies by the Department of Veterans Affairs have estimated that as many as 250,000 of the near- ly 700,000 service members who served in the Middle East in 1990 and 1991 have reported symptoms of Gulf War illness, which is also known as chronic multisymptom illness. But recent research is bol- stering the view that the symptoms are fundamentally biological in na- ture. Researchers at Georgetown University say they have found neurological damage in Gulf War veterans reporting symptoms. Such neurological damage, the researchers theorize, caused the veterans to be more sensitive to pain, to feel easily fatigued and to expe ...
US assisting Middle Eastern allies against cyber threats from Iran The US is assisting Middle East allies in building up cyber defences to counter growing attacks from Iran, it was reported on Sunday. The New York Times, citing senior American officials, said computer software, hardware and training was being provided to pro-Washington countries in the Persian Gulf to diffuse the growing threat from Tehran. Plans to bolster the computer defences of US allies will be extended to parts of Asia in a bid to blunt the perceived threat of network attacks from North Korea. The Obama administration has long been believed to have been involved in cyberwarfare against Tehran, with earlier reports suggesting the president ordered a series of sophisticated attacks on the computer systems that run the country's nuclear programme. On Friday, the Guardian further revealed that Obama had set up a list of potential overseas targets for US cyber-attacks. The leaked directive authorises the use of cyber-attacks on foreign n ...
I have always wondered what Condoleezza Rice meant ‘’ The New Middle east’’ until I have seen it by myself. For reffrence click the link :- This announcement was a confirmation of an Anglo-American-Israeli “military roadmap” in the Middle East. This project, which has been in the planning stages for several years, consists in creating an arc of instability, chaos, and violence extending from Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria to Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Iran, and the borders of NATO-garrisoned Afghanistan. The “New Middle East” project was introduced publicly by Washington and Tel Aviv with the expectation that Lebanon would be the pressure point for realigning the whole Middle East and thereby unleashing the forces of “constructive chaos.” This “constructive chaos” –which generates conditions of violence and warfare throughout the region– would in turn be used so that the United States, Britain, and Israel could redraw the map of the Middle East in accordance with their geo-strateg ...
"Africa’s [foreign] slavery was fuelled by demands for slaves to work in plantations and mines in the Americas, North Africa, the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and South East Asia including China and Japan. Some African kings became active suppliers of Africans as slaves to international European and Arab slave merchants. The trans-Saharan slave trade commenced late in the 7th century when Abdallah Ben Said, the King of Islamised Egypt, conquered via Jihad the Sudan – “the land of infidels” – and in 652 imposed on Sudanese King Khalidurat a treaty known as Bakht. One of the clauses of the treaty was the compulsory annual supply by the Sudanese king of hundreds of African slaves to the Muslim king of Egypt. The European trans-Atlantic slave trade took off 10 centuries later, in 1693. Some of the seminar participants affirmed that while the trans-Atlantic slave trade lasted for four centuries (1693-1884), the trans-Saharan slave trade continued for 17 centuries (652-1960). There were similarities ...
Strategic Importance of Gwadar Port for Pakistan Gwadar Port is the third deep sea port in Pakistan after Karachi and Port Qasim. Located on the western end of Baluchistan coast, Gwadar has 600km long coastal belt with beaches and bays. It lies just 624 nautical km to the east of Strait of Hormuz, which is an important rout of oil tankers bound for Japan and western countries out of Persian Gulf. Once a small fishing town along the Makran Coast is now set to be become a mega seaport which will fulfill the requirement of three strategically important regions the oil rich Middle East, heavily populated South Asia and Western China and the economically emerging resource-laden region of Central Asia. The Gwadar Port is expected to generate billions of dollars in revenues and create at least two million jobs. Gwadar Port is the living symbol of Pak-China relationship. ECO highway, Coastal Highway and other mega projects in road sectors will connect Gwadar free port with Central Asian States, Gulf States, China ...

    Suleyman I  - known as “the Magnificent” in the West and “Kanuni” in the East, (6 November 1494 – 5 September 1566) was the tenth and longest-reigning Emperor, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, from 1520 to his death in 1566. Suleiman became a prominent monarch of 16th century Europe, presiding over the apex of the Ottoman Empire's military, political and economic power. Suleiman personally led Ottoman armies in conquering the Christian strongholds of Belgrade, Rhodes, as well as most of Hungary before his conquests were checked at the Siege of Vienna in 1529. He annexed much of the Middle East in his conflict with the Safavids and large areas of North Africa as far west as Algeria. Under his rule, the Ottoman fleet dominated the seas from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and through the Persian Gulf.   At the helm of an expanding empire, Suleiman personally instituted major legislative changes relating to society, education, taxation, and criminal law. His canonical law (or the Kanuns) f ...

for you Christians you swear/believe/have faith that your beloved Jesus Christ existed and as the bible states it was just after the creation of the Universe/world, how do you explain[the Sumerians] Class, Power and War among the Sumerians In that part of the Middle East called the Fertile Crescent, hunter-gatherers began planting gardens. By 7000 BCE there was farming, which required permanent settlement. By 4500 BCE, people archaeologists call Ubaidians were living in towns near where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers emptied into the Persian Gulf. The Ubaidians drained marshes. They grew wheat and barley and irrigated their crops by digging ditches to river waters. They kept farm animals. Some manufactured pottery. They did weaving, leather or metal work, and some were involved in trade with other societies. This was Mesopotamia (Greek for "between two rivers"). It was around 4000 BCE that a people called Sumerians moved into Mesopotamia, perhaps from around the Caspian Sea. By 3800 BCE the Sumerians had ...
U.S. War Plans & The Saudi Arabia Debate U.S. ally an enemy? by Larry Everest & Leonard Innes Z magazine, December 2002 This summer, the Rand Corporation gave a secret briefing at the Pentagon on a certain Middle East country. The briefing labeled the country under discussion an "enemy" of the U.S., "active at every level of the terror chain." It recommended aggressive U.S. actions in response. This briefing might well have passed unnoticed, given the U.S. government's near-daily warnings of another new "terrorist threat." But instead it created big waves in the media because the country being accused was not one of the usual "axis of evil" suspects of the Bush administration, like Iran or Iraq. The subject of this briefing was Saudi Arabia-long a reliable and valued client state. In the wake of September 11, and with war looming over the Persian Gulf, an unprecedented debate has broken out within the U.S. ruling class over its relationship with Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia's role in the global order. Fo ...

In case Malacca Strait is blocked by U.S Gwadar can serve as an alternate route for Chinese trade in the Indian Ocean and to West Asia. In military and strategic terms, Gwadar can help China to monitor the sea-lanes from the Persian Gulf as about 60% of Chinese energy requirements come from the Persian Gulf and transit along this sea-lane. The port of Gwadar Port can provide China a Listening Post to Observe the Indian naval activities around the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Adan. Gulf States, especially UAE and Iran consider Gwadar as an emerging rival port in the region. They fear that Gwadar Port will share the economic and trade activities which other wise they can exclusively enjoy. So the interest of these countries is divergent in nature with regards to the development of Gwadar Port. The U.S interest in the energy resources of Middle East and CARs may cause strong Chinese presence near the Gulf and Strait o ...
GEOPOLITICAL REALITIES There are three certainties in American foreign policy: 1) Middle East oil commerce will be under the auspices of the United States. The cost and control of flow from the Persian Gulf will be safeguarded by the US military. Oil access is vital to maintaining Western Democracy. No foreign power whatsoever will ever be allowed to alter that control, regardless of consequences. America would use any measure necessary to maintain this policy. The old Soviet Union understood this position and never seriously challenged it. 2) Complete and total US support for the state of Israel will never be broken. Regardless of what you see on mainstream media implying decreasing support by the present administration, it is simply maneuvering. No other nation will be allowed to seriously threaten the existence and prosperity of Israel. States which threaten this position will eventually be ruined and "changed". With Israel's existence secure, we all hope that she will be fair to the Palestinian people ...
THE BCCI AFFAIR This article appeared in the October 13, 1995 issue of Executive Intelligence Review. The real story of the BCCI by Bill Engdahl and Jeffrey Steinberg In the summer of 1991, the Bank of England took the unprecedented step of shutting down one of the world's largest banks, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International. Soon afterwards, the District Attorney of Manhattan, Robert Morgenthau, handed down criminal indictments against top officials of the bank. Soon, the popular media were filled with tales of drug-money laundering, bankrolling of Middle East terrorists, underwriting of Saddam Hussein's quest for a nuclear bomb, etc. BCCI was linked to some of the Persian Gulf's wealthiest sheiks, and was described as a secret slush fund for the Central Intelligence Agency. Time magazine even quoted CIA head Robert Gates, referring to BCCI as the "Bank of Crooks and Criminals International." Two rather critical facts, however, were invariably left out of the story—even during the lengthy soap ...
Iran has almost total control over the Strait of Hormuz. Hormuz is the tight waterway that connects the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean. Over 17 million barrels of oil have to pass through Hormuz every day. That's 40% of all the oil shipped in the world. And 90% of all the daily oil shipments from the entire Middle East. With Hormuz alone, Iran could cripple the world overnight. Today, Iran backs Shia militants in Iraq. They give them money and guns. They've even helped Shia politicians take over the Iraqi government. Why? Because gaining control in Iraq takes the Iranians one step closer in their twisted plot for secret revenge. For another one of those steps, just look further south to Yemen. The Pentagon has just tripled its budget on Yemen. Top U.S. General Patraeus just had a not-so-secret meeting with Yemen's president. And our own State Department calls Yemen a “threat... to global stability.” What gives? Even ABC News just called Yemen the next "top target" in the terror war and a "near-per ...
The Assyrians of today are the indigenous Aramaic-speaking descendants of the ancient Assyrian people, one of the earliest civilizations emerging in the Middle East, and have a history spanning over 6750 years. Assyrians are not Arabian, we are not Kurdish, our religion is not Islam. The Assyrians are Christian, with our own unique language, culture and heritage Ancient Assyrians were inhabitants of one the world's earliest civilizations, Mesopotamia, which began to emerge around 3500 B.C. The Assyrians invented the world's first written language and the 360-degree circle, established Hammurabi's code of law, and are credited with many other military, artistic, and architectural achievements. For 300 years Assyrians controlled the entire Fertile Crescent, from the Persian Gulf to Egypt. In 612 B.C., however, Assyria's capital, Nineveh, was besieged and destroyed by a coalition of Medes, Scythians, and Chaldeans, decimating the previously powerful Assyrian Empire. The Assyrians are believed to have descend ...
GEOGRAPHY AND WORLD AFFAIRS, Chapter 11, A REALM OF THE MOSLEMS. Article one. Though Moslems are now widely scattered over the world, Islam originated in Arabia, a large arid peninsula between the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea. Mohammed was born in Mecca, now the holy city of all Moslems. The citizens of Mecca forced him to flee to Medina; from there his religion spread rapidly---eastward, westward, and northward. Three of the most widespread religions began in the Middle East, as we are using it, refers to southWestern Asia. We are including the lands south of the Soviet Union and west of Afghanistan and West Pakistan. The three religions have one idea in common; all teach belief in one God. The idea probably started in the Tigris-Euphrates Valley, later developing into a strong belief among the Jews of Palestine. The three great religions that grew out of the early belief in one God are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. As we have seen, Christianity spread to Europe by way of Rome and Constantinople, and ...

Reverend Franklin Graham, the pugnacious preacher who delivered the prayer at President George W. Bush’s inauguration, might have a bone to pick with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). When Franklin branded Islam “a very evil and wicked religion” after the 9-11 terrorist attacks, he had no idea that American spies were once eager to promote a Muslim leader in the Middle East modeled after his own father, the famous evangelist Billy Graham. The CIA often works in mysterious ways – and so it was with this little-known cloak-and-dagger caper, which set the stage for extensive collaboration between U.S. intelligence and Islamic extremists. The genesis of this ill-starred alliance dates back to Egypt in the mid-1950s, when the CIA made discrete overtures to the Muslim Brotherhood, the influential Sunni fundamentalist movement that fostered Islamic militancy throughout the Middle East. What started as a quiet American flirtation with political Islam became a Cold War love affair on the sly – an af ...

Sunday morning at 11am: Guest Speaker - Ambassador Dennis Ross*, counselor for The Washington Institute of Near East Policy. Topic: "The United States and the Middle East: 2013 and Beyond" Mr. Ross has served as the Director of Policy Planning under President George H. W. Bush, the special Middle East coordinator under President Clinton, and two years as Special Assistant to President Obama as well as National Security Council senior director for the Central Region. He also served a year as special advisor for the Persian Gulf and Southwest Asia to Secretary of State Clinton, focusing on Iran.
ON Monday, in their final debate, Mitt Romney denounced President Obama for creating “tension” and “turmoil” with Israel and chided him for having “skipped Israel” during his travels in the Middle East. Throughout the campaign, Mr. Romney has repeatedly accused Mr. Obama of having “thrown allies like Israel under the bus.” But history tells a different story. Indeed, whenever the United States has put serious, sustained pressure on Israel’s leaders — from the 1950s on — it has come from Republican presidents, not Democratic ones. This was particularly true under Mr. Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush. Just one week before the Iraq war began in March 2003, Mr. Bush was still struggling to form a broad international coalition to oust Saddam Hussein. Unlike in the 1991 Persian Gulf War, Russia, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, decided to opt out, meaning that the United Nations could not provide formal legitimacy for a war against Mr. Hussein. Britain was al ...

Extract from International New Media on Gaza: It is about the identity and existence of Israel. For one simple reason most of the Israelis were not born in the land of Palestine. Most of them came to the land as if they were going to some resorts, somewhere where they would feel safe. Nowadays when they are getting shelled by the bombs of the resistance in the settlements or in Tel Aviv itself, many would think to use their second passport, their passport of origin and go back to where they came from and Mr. Katzman we have met many times at different forums in Washington and some other places and this has been my argument for the last ten years. I have always said that if Americans wanted the best interest of their ally Israel, they were losing the momentum and they are running out of time because the day will come when America will understand that those puppets that they call allies in the Middle East and especially the Persian Gulf kings and princes have no leverage and will have no leverage anymore ov ...
Stock market opened strongly this morning, suggesting that investors are focusing on "fiscal cliff" developments and paying little attention to the Middle East. This from David Kelly, chief global strategist for the JP Morgan funds: "These two conflicts (Israel-Hamas and Syria) may not matter much to markets. Syria is not a rich nation and it is not a significant oil producer. The people of the tiny Gaza Strip are poorer still and have no impact on the global economy. If these conflicts made it more likely that the United States and Israel would attack Iran’s nuclear facilities and precipitate a disruption to oil production or shipping through the Persian Gulf it would be different. However, as is evidenced by the lack of movement in oil prices in the last week, financial markets don’t, at this time, expect such a linkage. "Here in the United States, the Fiscal Cliff clearly matters to markets. Stock prices have fallen steadily since election day, as commentators outlined the grisly economic cons ...
Egypt PM's and Tunisian FM's visits to Gaza, Today's Arab League emergency meeting (with all their ineffectiveness and impotency), you see something, something, i mean something. But where is the "LEADER"? "THE GUARDIANS"?The biggest friend of Israel at the moment is not the man in Oval Office. American interest is shifting away from Middle East in long run, their eyes are at Asia/Pacific region. Obama is going to Thailand and Cambodia on his first second term visits. Such things do not happen overnight. Despite American support to Israel, there is surely not complete consensus here between these two countries. They surely not share that same level of belligerency against Iran. The only friend of Israel that i can think of at the moment is that country between Red Sea and Persian Gulf. I am sorry its too holy even to name it here. Think about it. Which governments Israel want out of power in Middle East? So does that country ( and doing all that is possible) Israel wants to neutralize the Ayatollahs. Who ...

"Build up to WW3" The US Navy has unexpectedly dispatched a fourth aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf, along with a fleet of underwater drones in what is being considered just the latest move in a series of escalations leading towards a potential war with Iran. The deployment of dozens of small, unmanned submarine-like watercraft was confirmed by the Los Angeles Times this week, which cites military officials speaking on condition of anonymity. This particular type of craft, unmanned SeaFox submersible, are reported to be sent to the Gulf so that the US military can detect and destroy any mines that may be planted in the waterway by Iranian officials if they escalate efforts to block the Strait of Hormuz, a strategically important narrow stretch of water that exists as an immensely important conduit for any resources being moved in or out of the Middle East. The Times says that the subs, at only 4 feet long and fewer than 100 pounds apiece, can move at speeds up to six knots at depths of 300 feet. The p ...
Another quote: '' We must accurately define who the enemy is, his tactics, and what he wants. If we continue to fight on blindly in the Middle East, trying to contain Iran, spending trillions of dollars fighting wars without end, we will lose or be forced into a full-fledged war. It would be a war requiring we bring back the draft, settle into thirty years of conflict, and survive on the hope that a million soldiers permanently based in the Persian Gulf will change our luck.'' p. 56, 57, 'The Devil We Know', by Robert Baer, Ph.d. copyright 2008.

Tensions Rising Again Over Iran’s Nuclear Program by NewsBot by Meredith Buel September 13, 2012 Tensions are again rising in the Persian Gulf over Iran’s nuclear program as the U.S. moves additional ships and warplanes to the region as negotiations that could avert a possible military confrontation remain stalled. The threat of an Israeli strike on Iran appears to be growing as Tehran continues to ignore U.N. Security Council resolutions calling on Iran to stop enriching uranium. The United States is moving significant military firepower to the Persian Gulf and is increasing the number of fighter planes that could strike deep into Iran if the country moves to build a nuclear bomb. Analysts say the time is fast approaching when Israeli leaders must decide whether to launch strikes against Iran, a move that could explode the already fragile Middle East. “The clock is certainly ticking faster because the diplomacy clock, unfortunately, is ticking very slowly,” said Patrick Clawson, an expert on Iran ...
Obama made several campaign promises during the 2008 speech that remain unfulfilled. He said: "In ten years, we will finally end our dependence on oil from the Middle East." In fact, Persian Gulf oil imports increased in each of the last three years. He said: "Change means a tax code that doesn't reward the lobbyists who wrote it." NASCAR, the tuna industry and Wall Street lobbyists continue to win tax breaks. He said: "Many of these plans will cost money, which is why I've laid out how I'll pay for every dime." The president's most recent budget projects a $1.3 trillion deficit. He said: "I will also renew the tough, direct diplomacy that can prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons." Inspectors say Iran is closer to producing nuclear fuel than ever before.
I had a dream last night that North Korea, feeling limited by its dependence on foreign aid and vulnerability to sanctions, began manufacturing and selling nuclear weapons to extremist groups in the Middle East - and that even though American intel knew this was going on, they kept quiet because as long as they could trace the funding of those groups to Iran it would give the US an excuse to go to all-out war with that country, with the ultimate goal of securing control of the Persian Gulf oil trafficking...a goal that was deemed worth the risk of isolated nuclear attacks and the civilian casualties that might entail. This would make an interesting movie! *Calls up Oliver Stone*
If anyone here likes to call Persian Gulf, " Arabian Sea" Arabian Gulf or "Gulf," please remove me from your list or I will remove your name from mine immediately. I am a patriot of my country regardless of its governing body. YOU look silly to be polite when you insult 7000 years of history and any government trying to change that name look stupid at best! I assure you no other country other than Egypt has more history as Iran has. I ask of you to be respectful of my country's history, boarders, geography and religion then we get a long just fine! Iranian people are not your enemy. Don't make an enemy of perfectly great friend. They love Americans, let's keep it that way! But if you keep insulting Persian culture you will find yourself a backslash from one country in Middle East that its population genuinely love America!

Dubai Marina is a district in the heart of what has become known as "new Dubai" in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubai Marina is a canal city, carved along a two mile (3 km) stretch of Persian Gulf shoreline. When the entire development is complete, it will accommodate more than 120,000 people in residential towers and villas. It is located at on Interchange 5 between Jebel Ali Port and the area which hosts Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City, and the American University in Dubai. The first phase of this project has been completed. Dubai Marina was inspired by and designed to model the highly successful Concord Pacific Place development along False Creek in Vancouver, BC, Canada .

America's most sophisticated stealth jet fighters have been quietly deployed to an allied base less than 200 miles from Iran's mainland, according to an industry report, but the Air Force adamantly denied the jets' presence is a threat to the Middle East nation. (Oh! are we "Dumb *** ) Multiple stealth F-22 Raptors, which have never been combat-tested, are in hangars at the United Arab Emirates' Al Dafra Air Base, just a short hop over the Persian Gulf from Iran's southern border, the trade publication Aviation Week reported. That should send many of the Muslim Scum-bags prostrating on their filthy prayer blankets.

Recent discoveries of not just significant, but huge oil and gas reserves in the little-explored Mediterranean Sea between Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Israel, Syria and Lebanon suggest that the region could become literally a “new Persian Gulf” in terms of oil and gas riches. As with the old Persian Gulf, discovery of hydrocarbon riches could as well spell a geopolitical curse of staggering dimension. Long-standing Middle East conflicts could soon be paled by new battles over rights to oil and gas resources beneath the Eastern Mediterranean in the Levant Basin and Aegean Sea. Here we explore the implications of a gigantic discovery of gas and oil in offshore Israel. In a second article we will explore the implications of gas and oil discoveries in the Aegean between Cyprus, Syria, Turkey, Greece and Lebanon. An Israeli Leviathan The game-changer was a dramatic discovery in late 2010 of an enormous natural gas field offshore of Israel in what geologists call the Levant or Levantine Basin. In October 2010 I ...
