The War on Terrorism is Terrorism How the US Helped Create Al Qaeda and ISIS By Garikai Chengu "ICH" - "Counterpunch" - Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region. The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history. The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union. The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, “by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 th ...
American investigative journalist Wayne Madsen says Americans are targeted by terrorists who are trained by the United States government. “We’re targeted because we’re training the people that target our own citizens,” he told Press TV on Saturday. He made the comments after the US State Department warned Americans residing worldwide to prepare for "terrorist actions and violence," following Paris attacks. In a statement on Friday, the department said the recent terrorist attacks serve as a reminder that American citizens need to maintain a “high level of vigilance” and “take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness.” It said that US-led airstrikes against the ISIL terrorist group in Iraq and Syria made American nationals and interests a target for reprisals, "especially in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Asia." Madsen noted that the US is definitely not serious about “cutting off” ISIL. “At the end of this month, the CIA is going to start training the use of ...

"Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog..." A Hook in the Jaw… by Matt Ward There is a perfect economic storm rising in Russia. Seventy percent of the Russian economy is dependent upon oil. In order for the Russian economy to break even they need to be able to sell oil at $109 per barrel. Right now the price is $59 per barrel. Despite Putin recently winning: Russian Man of the Year for the 15th straight year, he is in big trouble. The one major failing of Putin since he came to power is that he promised the Russian people he would diversify the Russian economy and wean them off their over reliance on oil. He has failed to do so and this failure is now coming back to haunt him. Now, because of competition between OPEC oil producers in the Middle East and the United States over American Shale production, OPEC has increased the amount of oil produced each day and reduced the price of the oil per barrel. Their intention is to flood the oil market with really cheap oil and therefore kill o ...
Today two Police Officers with the New York Police Department were assassinated by a cowardly Domestic Terrorist who walked up to them as they sat in their patrol car and shot them in the head. The investigation has just begun but based on social media posts by the murderer who killed himself as the police pursued him, the cause he cited was the killing of Michael Brown and Eric Garner by police. The similarities to attacks on United States Military by suicide terrorists in the Middle East is too clear to be ignored. This is a defining moment in the history of the United States. Those who have cried out for violence against the police because they did not like the Grand Jury decisions should be held accountable for the deaths of these two officers. The only thing that stands between civilization and anarchy is the law and those sworn to protect it. Al Sharpton, I as a man who dedicated his life to the the law and the citizens I served, accuse you of being an accomplice in the death of the these two of ...
I am a law abiding citizen of these United States. I exercise as many of my rights as I can on a daily basis. I am a soldier and have defended my beliefs and will continue to do so until I have no breath. I am a Law Enforcement Agent. I believe in the law and that there are many grey areas and not so great laws. I believe that to maintain our way of life, we must all step back and not blame an LEO for these laws, rather we should blame ourselves for allowing politicians and "law makers" to make the laws and represent us. We trust those men and women to be "of the people" and not look down us. Yet WE have allowed it to happen. I'm sorry for the families of the two officers that were shot, probably not because of who they were as people but rather because of the representation of government that a person can easily attack. The answer isn't more laws, the answer is better laws and people willing to enforce them, beyond the contact level. A police officer can bring a criminal in, but if the DA, or a judge doe ...
Imperialism and the Politics of Torture By James Petras December 16, 2014 "ICH" - Introduction: The US Senate Report documenting CIA torture of alleged terrorist suspects raises a number of fundamental questions about the nature and operations of the State, the relationship and the responsibility of the Executive Branch and Congress to the vast secret police networks which span the globe – including the United States. CIA: The Politics of a Global Secret Police Force The Senate Report’s revelations of CIA torture of suspects following the 9/11 bombing is only the tip of the iceberg. The Report omits the history and wider scope of violent activity in which the CIA has been and continues to be involved. CIA organized large scale deathsquad activities and extreme torture in Vietnam (Phoenix Project); multiple assassinations of political leaders in the Congo, Chile, Dominican Republic, Vietnam, the Middle East, Central America and elsewhere; the kidnapping and disappearance of suspected activists in Iraq ...
at this moment Obama is still on TV running his mouth and he just got through thanking ''his holiness''... the pope...etc... Okay so now because of some shady trading of ''prisoners'',CUBA is now on our new best friend! I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis when I was 6 years old and how the Communists had their missiles pointed at the United States!! I remember watching on television they were called Cuban boat people, desperate to escape the iron hand of Fidel Castro... Raoul Castro now runs Cuba. Let's see it wasn't too long ago that a United States Marine was held in Mexico unjustly and Obama did not do a thing to gain his release. But I guess since we have no borders now between Mexico and the United State Obama had no bargaining chip. So in the near future we will not have more than just the US Mexican border as a way for terrorist to Our country. Cuba is a communist regime. And Obama wants to start sending money and aid to Cuba. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and Obama is imposing .. ...

Mohamed Atta: The CIA's cocaine-snorting, stripper-screwing patsy. The 9/11 Truth Movement: Widows Lead Growing Effort To Expose What The Government Knew Ellen Mariani (left) at her daughter's wedding, which she had to reschedule after losing her husband in the 9/11 attacks When former New Jersey Gov. Thomas Kean took the helm of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, more popularly known as the 9/11 Commission, the moderate Republican made a vow: He would not let his investigation become another Warren Commission, the 1964 federal inquiry criticized for failing to adequately probe the possibility of conspiracy in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The 9/11 Commission would look into every aspect of the attacks, and try to illustrate why the United States was so ill-prepared. But as the original May 27 deadline for the commission's report fast approaches, eyebrows are already being raised. On Jan. 27, the commissioners asked for 60 more days. The White House repe ...
A blow for US democracy The Statesman 11 Dec 2014 Rupert Cornwall The Senate report on the brutal interrogation methods employed by the CIA after 9/11 not only makes shocking reading: another dark day for the agency, and an ugly stain on the global reputation of the USA. It also raises, not for the first time, the question of how and to what extent the activities of an intelligence agency can be made accountable in a democracy like the United States. The report is a devastating indictment. But for all the precautions taken to protect against retaliation against American troops and installations in the Middle East, the report's biggest impact is likely to be political, in the USA. It can only further inflame relations as a Democrat-controlled Senate, backed by a Democratic White House, passes judgment on the Republican administration of George W Bush. Indeed, politics partly explain why it is being published now, by the existing Democratic majority on the Intelligence Committee. From next month, Republican ...
The FBI has sent a confidential "flash" alert to numerous U.S. businesses, warning them that hackers have recently launched a destructive "wiper" malware attack. While the alert doesn't name the victim, numerous information security experts say the malware appears to correspond with the malicious code used in the recent hack attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment. The FBI alert marks the first time that dangerous wiper malware has been used in an attack against a business in the United States, security experts say. Previous such attacks were seen in the Middle East in 2012 and in South Korea in 2013. Wiper malware is one of the rarest types of malware and "highly destructive," security firm Kaspersky Lab says, owing to it having the ability to wipe hard drives and even BIOS flash memory. Infections with the malware can lead to costly and lengthy repairs and data stored on devices often being impossible to restore, unless it's been backed up offsite. The five-page FBI memo was sent directly to informat ...
Biden: No Daylight between Israel and U.S. on Security Vice President Joe Biden told the Saban Forum in Washington on Saturday night: Our prayers are with the family of Luke Somers, who was murdered by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. It's a potent reminder of what Israelis face every day. I've said before, if there weren't an Israel, we'd have to invent one. We always talk about Israel from this perspective as if we're doing some favor, meeting a moral obligation. But it's so much more than a moral obligation. It's overwhelmingly in the self-interest of the United States of America to have a secure, democratic friend, a strategic partner like Israel. Israel today is the strongest nation in the Middle East. Just because it's strong, just because it's vibrant, just because it is physically capable, does not mean that it's not under siege. Rockets from the southern frontier; Hizbullah in the north; Nusrah and ISIL on the north and east. And looming over everything is Iran and its nuclear program. It's a r ...
The state of North Dakota has named a new publicly-owned landfill after President Barack Obama. In an overwhelming 35-10 vote, the state Senate advanced a bill naming a 650-acre site currently under construction after the nation’s 44th president. Governor Jack Dalrymple is expected to sign the measure into law Tuesday. When completed, the Barack Obama Memorial Landfill will be the largest waste disposal site in North Dakota, and the 17th largest in the United States. It will be especially rich in toxic waste from the local petroleum and medical industries. “We wanted to do something to honor the president,” says Republican State Senator Doug Perlman, who was the lead sponsor of the bill. “And I think a pile of garbage is a fitting tribute to Obama’s presidency. “We originally planned on naming it after a nearby mountain. But then someone jokingly suggested we name it after Obama. I never thought and idea like that would actually pass. But I was pleasantly surprised.” The president is hardly ...

In Conversation The Rise of ISIS and the Origins of the New Middle East War by Tariq Ali and Patrick Cockburn Tariq Ali: I’m in conversation with Patrick Cockburn, who can only be described as a veteran reporter and courageous journalist who has covered the wars of the United States in the Middle East since they began with the invasion of Iraq, and was reporting from the region a long time before on the sanctions against Iraq, the Gulf wars. We’re now at a critical stage where a new organisation has emerged. Patrick has written a new book, The Jihadis Return, which is an extended essay on the emergence of ISIS and its links to the Sunni population in Iraq and the likely consequences of this for the region. Because there’s absolutely no doubt that what this opens up is yet another front in the unending war that has become a total misery for the people who live in the Arab world today. Patrick, let’s begin by sort of inquiring about the origins of the Islamic State group, ISIS as they call themselv ...
I WONDER….. What it would be like to live in a Fair and Just World. A World in which there was no Double-Standard, No Hypocrisy. A World not governed by Spin Machines, PR and Photo Opportunities. (Though I will admit that Mahmoud Abbas has better teeth and hair than Arafat.) A World that didn’t idolize Homicide Bombers as “Freedom Fighters.” A World where people realized there is no “cycle of violence” in the Middle East – Just Terrorists who NEVER have and NEVER will accept the existence of the State of Israel. The Anti-Semites, the Islamic Extremists will NEVER be happy, Will NEVER be satiated, Until the Jewish State is no more. They cannot stand, they cannot tolerate that we breathe the same air they breathe. NO MORE HYPOCRISY!!! Israel MUST be allowed to Eliminate every last Terrorist – Just like the United States would do if its citizens were being attacked. How many Israelis have been MURDERED since that last Great Photo Opportunity – Oslo? I Wonder….. What is the World waiting f ...
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was interviewed this afternoon on the CBS program "Face the Nation" and made the following remarks: "Iran is not your ally. Iran is not your friend. Iran is your enemy. It's not your partner. Iran is committed to the destruction of Israel, just as the P5+1, the United States and the world powers are negotiating with Iran a nuclear agreement, the Ayatollah Khamenei, the ruler of Iran, calls for the annihilation of Israel. He just did that four days ago. He specified nine ways and reasons by which Israel should be destroyed. He's participated in rallies and chants of 'Death to America', 'Death to Israel'. This is not a friend, neither in the battle against ISIS nor in the effort, the great effort that should be made to deprive him [of] the capacity to make nuclear weapons. Don't fall for Iran's ruse. They are not your friend." Prime Minister Netanyahu added: "Basically the Middle East is awash with militant Islamists, the militant Islamists led by al-Qaeda and ISIS on the S ...
(A Long Read, but Very Informative.) Iceland’s Random Republic overthrown by Corporations December 13, 2013. Iceland. The UK’s Guardian recently asked why news of the five-year Icelandic revolution has been banned in the United States. Americans receive hourly media reports of revolt from the Middle East and the rest of Europe. But Iceland’s popular uprising instituted something that is apparently too despised and dangerous for Americans to learn of – the corporate overthrow of democracy. Icelanders voted to disolve their Constitution and ceate a new one. But their two ruling parties simply refused to disolve Occupy Wall Street, the Tea Party, Green Party, Libertarian Party and all the rest fighting for a legitimate US government free from the iron grip of criminal corporations and the world’s billionaires – Listen up! Your future has just played out in Iceland and we lost, we all lost. The Icelandic revolution When Wall Street’s largest global banks destroyed the world’s economy by gambli ...
Gingrich: Obama 'Dictatorial,' But Impeachment Won't Work Saturday, 15 Nov 2014 01:54 PM By Sandy Fitzgerald President Barack Obama may have run for political office by promising to end wars in the Middle East, but his vow to impose executive actions to push his political agenda will ignite a political war in the United States, says Newt Gingrich. But Congress has ways to fight back, he explains in an opinion piece titled "A Dictatorial President Obama Versus the American People’s Congress" posted Friday to his website. One way Congress can retake control would be by passing a short-term continuing resolution during the current lame-duck session to preserve Congressional ability to use spending provisions as negotiating chips if Obama doesn't back down on his plans, the former House Speaker writes. Republicans defeated Democrats on every government level, and many Democrats opted to stay home and refused to vote, writes Gingrich. However, Obama is acting like his side won and "he has a resounding mandat ...
CENTO Central Treaty Organization (CENTO), formerly Middle East Treaty Organization, or Baghdad Pact Organization, mutual security organization dating from 1955 to 1979 and composed of Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, and the United Kingdom. Until March 1959 the organization was known as the Middle East Treaty Organization, included Iraq, and had its headquarters in Baghdad. Formed at the urging of Britain and the United States, the Central Treaty Organization was intended to counter the threat of Soviet expansion into vital Middle East oil-producing regions. It was never very effective. Iraq withdrew from the alliance in 1959 after its anti-Soviet monarchy was overthrown. That same year the United States became an associate member, the name of the organization was changed to CENTO, and its headquarters was moved to Ankara. Following the fall of the shah in 1979, Iran withdrew, and CENTO was dissolved. The objective of the alliance was to prevent the spread of Communism and of Soviet influence in the Middle East. ...
FROM THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: Every year, we set aside Veterans Day to honor all the men and women who’ve served our country in uniform. We celebrate veterans from generations past. We welcome a new generation of veterans home from war. And we thank our future veterans, still serving at home and abroad. They are securing our nation through their engagement across the globe. Some are in West Africa, contributing to the global effort to stop the spread of Ebola. Some are in the Middle East, working closely with our coalition partners in the fight against ISIL. And some are in Afghanistan, where next month the United States will responsibly end the longest war in our history. For our troops serving around the world today, and those transitioning out of the military, our obligations are only beginning. Taking care of them, and their families, is a sacred responsibility we must always uphold. Let’s celebrate them by telling their stories. Let’s help those who need it, while supporting their stre ...
Military personnel from Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Great Britain came together to commemorate 2014 Remembrance Day services in the Middle East.
I predicted on Wednesday that the outcome of Tuesday's election would be calls from the right for a land war in the Middle East to "confront the threat of terrorism/ ISIL/ Iran/ the Boogeyman." It only took until Friday for the White House to preempt that argument by doubling the number of "boots on the ground" training Iraqi brigades and Kurdish Peshmerga fighters. The 1,500 additional troops announced yesterday join 1,400 already in country — and trust me, I'm not surprised they dumped this into the weekend wasteland of news reporting. Anything you want to bury, you announce late in the day on Friday. This video is a part of the live performance project Voices of a People's History of the United States.

The Wall Street Journal reported today that President Obama recently wrote Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in an effort to promote U.S.-Iranian cooperation against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Although a number of pundits have called for closer U.S.-Iranian ties – in the form of a rapprochement, or even a “Persian pivot” – these proposals reflect mistaken assumptions about Tehran’s objectives in Iraq, Syria and the broader Middle East. The Foreign Policy Initiative is closely watching developments with Iran, and we suggest the following resources as policymakers, lawmakers, and the wider public debate what steps the United States must take next.
Once Were Peacekeepers. For weeks I have been listening to the news of our participation in another war in the Middle East. Now, with the terrible shootings in Ottawa we will no doubt be told that these shootings are the cost of freedom in a world marred by terrorism. Our Civil Liberties will become more eroded and there will be more surveillance, more checkpoints, more x-ray machines and metal detectors, all in the name of protecting Canadians. What in the world is going on? And who chose this path? We used to be known as a peacekeeping nation. Our soldiers were placed between combatants, and our mission was to keep people from shooting each other. We had a strong and respected place in the United Nations and a real vision as a people. We did not get involved in wars, except to mediate between the sides. Now we are backing the United States in another Middle Eastern war, and this with the clear record of history against us. No intervention in the Middle East by a Western power, or a Russian power, or a . ...
Editor's View Nations far from West Africa are scrambling to train health workers and screen people possibly infected with Ebola. But so far, only a handful of cases have been reported outside of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. Over the weekend, President Obama urged Americans not to give in to hysteria about the disease. While there have been public health missteps in the United States, those are likely to be corrected in the days ahead, given the depth of US resources. The real battle is in West Africa, where more than 4,500 people have died and the health-care infrastructure has been overwhelmed. While the United States, Europe, and private donors have pledged money and sent aid workers to the region, little help has come from the Middle East, Russia, Asia, and Latin America. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf yesterday read a poignant “dear world” letter on the BBC, pleading for “global citizens” not to leave “West Africans to fend for themselves." To date, however, much of world ha ...
Can we hope?

Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened to not send the U.S. any more Presidents. It's gonna get ugly, people.

ISL: In sweltering India, it's raining money Italian footballer Alessandro Del Piero being welcomed at IGI Airport in New Delhi. (PTI Photo) India's financial muscle in sports is not restricted to cricket alone. The Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 cricket, as the world knows, is cash-rich and attracts the best cricketers from around the world, but even in football, franchisees in the Indian Super League (ISL) are coming up with offers that have made famous names stop for a while and ponder. The capture of Delhi Dynamos marquee player Alessandro Del Piero and signing of French star Nicolas Anelka provides a glimmer of hope that India can be an alternative destination for players looking beyond Middle East and the United States. Delhi Dynamos, for example, splashed out around Rs 11 crore to make Del Piero, a World Cup winner with Italy in 2006, the highest paid footballer in the ISL. A marquee player for Australian club Sydney FC last season, Del Piero rejected offers from several clubs around the world, bu ...
Benjamin Fulford: Do top Western leaders work for hostile aliens or are they just evil? What passes as the leadership of the Western world, especially the United States, is acting in such a stupid and downright evil manner that we have to ask the question of who they really work for. As this article is being written, the secret government of the West is continuing to spread bio-weapons, yet again threatening nuclear terror, trying to start World War 3 in the Middle East or Europe and otherwise behaving like a bunch of psychopaths. Then there is what appears to be some sort of secret weather warfare going on. As this story goes to press, supposed super typhoon Vongfong directly over Tokyo and yet it is hardly even raining and there is no wind. A look at the Japanese infrared and visual weather satellite photographs of this typhoon over the past 48 hours show some very unnatural goings on. On the one hand the typhoon seems to be hit with pockets of cold dry air, causing it to break up, then, there are unnat ...
'The first case of Ebola contracted inside the United States has now been documented in Dallas, after a nurse who bravely treated "patient zero" Thomas Eric Duncan tested positive for the virus. Disconcertingly, she was infected despite wearing full protective gear (trust us, "hazmat-chic" will soon be the new fashion rage). The Center for Disease Control quickly responded that the nurse must have been responsible for a "protocol breach," because, as every political organization knows, nothing can stand up to protocol, including hemorrhagic fever. Barack Obama, stealing a few precious moments between fundraising, golfing, and conceding defeat in the Middle East, attempted to quell public fears by saying you can't catch Ebola "by sitting next to someone on a bus." Which is why the CDC is suggesting a new protocol in which medical professionals will skip the hazmat suits and simply treat patients while seated next to them on a bus. Still, these palliative measures will accomplish little unless the United .. ...
Canadians Visiting the US - Be Warned: In the U.S., a cash-grab by police and government is dressed up in terms like “interdiction and forfeiture,” or “the equitable sharing program.” (CBC) About The Author Neil Macdonald Senior Washington Correspondent Neil Macdonald is the senior Washington correspondent for CBC News, which he joined in 1988 following 12 years in newspapers. Before taking up this post in 2003, Macdonald reported from the Middle East for five years. He speaks English and French fluently, and some Arabic. On its official website, the Canadian government informs its citizens that “there is no limit to the amount of money that you may legally take into or out of the United States.” Nonetheless, it adds, banking in the U.S. can be difficult for non-residents, so Canadians shouldn’t carry large amounts of cash. That last bit is excellent advice, but for an entirely different reason than the one Ottawa cites. There’s a shakedown going on in the U.S., and the perps are in unifor ...
By Claire Wolfe Issue • September/October, 2014 The world is becoming less free. In the Middle East and Africa, Islamist fanatics try to bring back the Dark Ages. Europe stagnates under new layers of regulation imposed by the EU. In the United States, a president who disdains the messy art of political deal-making increasingly seeks to rule by Executive Order and bureaucratic fiat. Think tanks from every part of the political spectrum agree that freedom is falling nearly everywhere. They release annual reports charting alarming declines. Democracy-promoting (and government-funded) Freedom House notes that freedom of the press is at a 10-year worldwide low. On the economic front, the conservative Heritage Foundation reports that the global growth of freedom has "ground to a halt" since 2008 after growing healthily for the previous 12 years. While many of the worst losses for every type of freedom have been in Africa and the Middle East (where they didn't have much to begin with), the U.S. is not immune. ...

Former Sen. Jim Webb said Sunday the United States hasn’t articulated a clear Foreign Policy since the end of the Cold War. And the Virginia Democrat, who has been mentioned as a potential 2016 presidential candidate, said the U.S. lack of a post-Cold War doctrine has harmed its efforts in the Middle East. “We have not had a clear articulation...
THE White House Office of the Press Secretary Washington, D.C. October 1, 2014 REMARKS BY President Obama AND Prime Minister Netanyahu OF ISRAEL BEFORE BILATERAL MEETING Oval Office President Obama: Well, it’s good once again to welcome the Prime Minister of Israel, Bibi Netanyahu. Obviously, he’s no stranger to the White House. I think I’ve met with Bibi more than any world leader during my tenure as President. We meet at a challenging time. Israel is obviously in a very turbulent neighborhood, and this gives us an opportunity once again to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between the United States and Israel, and our ironclad commitment to making sure that Israel is secure. Throughout the summer, obviously all of us were deeply concerned about the situation in Gaza. I think the American people should be very proud of the contributions that we made to the Iron Dome program to protect the lives of Israelis at a time when rockets were pouring into Israel on a regular basis. I think we also recognize tha ...
Obama, Modi Work To Deepen Improving U.S.-India Ties U.S. President Barack Obama and new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi worked to deepen improving ties between their countries on Tuesday, but emerged from their second meeting in two days with little in the way of major agreements. Obama and Modi, speaking to reporters in the Oval Office, said they had discussed a wide range of topics - from trade to space exploration to Climate Change to the Islamic State threat in the Middle East. "We already have the foundation of a strong partnership," said Modi, seated beside Obama. "We now have to revive the momentum and ensure that we get the best out of it for our people and for the world." A stronger relationship between the United States and India, the world's two largest democracies, has the potential to provide a counterweight against China, whose muscle-flexing in the Asia-Pacific has rattled regional nerves. While the leaders did not announce big-ticket agreements on a number of issues, they vowed to wor ...
Title: The Syrian Virgin Author: Zack Love Genre: Contemporary Romance Cover Design: Pink Ink Designs by Cassy Roop Release Date: October 20th 2014 Goodreads TBR Link: up for an alert when The Syrian Virgin is available: is traumatized by the most brutal conflict of the 21st Century: the Syrian Civil War. In 2012, Islamists in Homs terrorize her Christian community and destroy everything in her life. Narrowly escaping death, Anissa restarts her devastated life as a college student in NY. She is bewildered and lost -- a virgin in every sense. But despite her inexperience with men and life in the United States, Anissa is quickly drawn to two powerful individuals: Michael, the Syrian-Christian American who leads the political effort to protect his community, and Julien, her college professor who runs a $20 billion hedge fund. Complicating matters, Michael is still attached to his ex-girlfriend and Julien is the most sought after bachelor in Manhattan. Anissa's heart and her communal ties pull her in differe ...
This is surprising in one vein, and in another it is not. This looks like an inside job and message to Obama; that's almost immediately what occurred to me. The Elites are not going to have a overconfident president disrupt their global agenda. After the weekend breach occurred the Obama Administration called for strikes into Syria. Maybe Obama was reluctant to follow the blueprint in the Middle East, and the Elites had to send him a message. Obama is a smart man, but he's a domestic, social agitator; he's not a military genius that has shaped the global economic and military empire of the United States over several decades, and nor will he able to dismantle what has taken decades to formulate around the world. The Elites will not suffer a fool gladly. A republican will be the next president most likely, like Jeb Bush who will do the bidding of the shadow government, unquestionably. In one sense, who the *** does Obama think he is? Obama doesn't have the knowledge or intelligence to mastermind the geopol ...

Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said Saturday that the war against extremists in the Middle East may take years and must not stop before all terrorist organizations are eliminated, according to The Associated Press (AP). Saud al-Faisal, whose country is one of five Arab countries taking part alongside the United States in airstrikes targeting the “Islamic State” (IS or ISIS) group in Syria, also called for more decisive policies and decisions to fight terrorism. The Saudi official made the comments in a speech distributed to the media and quoted by the news agency. "We face a very dangerous situation today. Terrorism has evolved from cells to armies and from threatening specific spots to nations," he said, according to AP. "The war on terror requires serious and continuous work that may go on for years, and must not stop at partial victories against limited organizations," added al-Faisal. "We must continue until all terrorist organizations are destroyed, wherever they may be." Al-Faisal, whose countr ...

FILIPINO DIASPORA and its SOLUTION Every year, it is estimated that more than a million Filipinos leave to work abroad, or around 4,500 Filipinos every day. Data from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) shows that roughly 9.5 million to 12.5 million Filipinos currently work or reside abroad. This translates to around 10-11% of the total Philippine population. In 2012, OFWs are said to have remitted more than $21 billion back to the Philippines, a 5% growth from the remittances sent in the previous year 9% of the country’s $224.75 billion total Gross Domestic Product in 2011. Without a doubt, Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) play a pivotal role in sustaining the Philippine economy. Overseas Filipinos are widely dispersed worldwide but majority of them are in North America and in the Middle East. The biggest chunk reside in the United States, estimated to number more than 3.4 million as of 2010. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates combined are home to more than 1.8 million Filipi ...
This was written by a friend, She is an expert on Lewis and Clark and a very Patriotic American! IN DEFENSE OF COMMON SENSE By Hetty Gray # 189 June 20, 2014 “Marine One” Isn’t it odd that a person who depends upon one particular branch of the U.S. Armed Services ignores the fact that one of them — a veteran of two tours in the Middle East — suffers mightily in a Mexican prison after a wrong turn at the California border. It is irrefutable that the Marine Corps boasts some of the most talented and heroic fighters among all our troops, and that is not to take away from those who serve among the other branches. Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi made a mistake. He had walked into Mexico and returned to get his car to return to California where he was undergoing treatment for PTSD. The turn back to the United States was very poorly marked. Instead of allowing him to turn around, authorities arrested him. When Mexicans — even armed ones — make the same mistake and end up in the US by accident, we simply t ...
Who are the REAL terrorists? Who is the REAL enemy? Since World War One the United States has engaged in wars of aggression and military occupation in Central America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. To this day the US military occupies 56 bases in Germany, 113 facilities in Italy, and 84 in Japan. They have an armed force in the “demilitarized zone” on the Korean peninsula, and hundreds of bases in at least 70 different countries. And add to this the militarization of police across this once great nation. There is an agenda to enslave the entire planet. Are YOU willing to FIGHT FOR FREEDOM? I sure as *** am.
Latest from Golan Heights Collapse of UN peacekeeping mission on Golan Heights marks new era on Israel-Syria front ARON HELLER The Associated Press Published Thursday, Sep. 18 2014, 3:58 AM EDT Last updated Thursday, Sep. 18 2014, 5:13 AM EDT For four decades, a multinational United Nations mission has quietly monitored the sleepy Golan Heights — providing a symbol of stability between bitter enemies as it enforced a truce between Israel and Syria. But as Syria has plunged into civil war and the peacekeepers themselves have become targets of al-Qaeda-linked rebels, the UN observer force has begun to fall apart, leaving its future — and the prospects for ever establishing peace in this rugged area of the Middle East — in doubt.

by JEFFREY D. SACHS * New York – It is time for the United States and other powers to let the Middle East govern itself in line with national sovereignty and the United Nations Charter. As the US contemplates yet another round of military action in Iraq and intervention in Syria, it should recognize two basic truths. First, US interventions, which have cost the country trillions of dollars and thousands of lives over the past decade, have consistently destabilized the Middle East, while causing massive suffering in the affected countries. Second, the region’s governments – in Syria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, and elsewhere – have both the incentive and the means to reach mutual accommodations. What is stopping them is the belief that the US or some other outside power (such as Russia) will deliver a decisive victory on their behalf. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed at the end of World War I, the great powers of the day, Britain and France, carved out successor states in order to en ...
For eight years, Iran tried, and failed, to defeat Iraq. Then, in the span of just over two weeks between March 20 and April 9, 2003, American Apache helicopters, F-16s, and Hellfire missiles obliterated the Iraqi army, unintentionally handing Iran a victory it could never have achieved on its own. The United States was the instrument of its own defeat in the Middle East. By decimating Iraq's army, we opened the door for Iran to annex Iraq and its oil through proxies - a process that is now well under way. Destroying Iraq was the greatest strategic blunder this country has made in its history. Unless we change course, there's every reason to believe the Iraq War will end up changing the United States more than it ever will Iraq. ex-CIA operative Robert Baer, THE DEVIL WE KNOW, Thorndike Press, c.2008

Do not be misled by White House double-talk: the United States is embarking on another Long War in the Middle East. This one will belong to Barack Obama, and it may extend beyond his presidency.

Status Update By Crystal M Perry In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, people all over the world stood shoulder-to-shoulder in mourning, solidarity, sympathy and friendship with the people of the United States. Here are a few of those international reactions, both organized and spontaneous, that occurred in the days following September 11, 2001. In London, the Star Spangled Banner played during the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, while traffic came to a standstill in The Mall nearby. In Beijing, tens of thousands of people visited the U.S. Embassy, leaving flowers, cards, funeral wreaths and hand-written notes of condolence on the sidewalk out front. In Moscow, women who spoke no English and had never been to the U.S. were captured on film sobbing in front of a makeshift tribute on a sidewalk, and every single church and monastery in Romania held a memorial prayer. In France, a well-known newspaper, Le Monde, ran a headline reading, “We Are All Americans.” In the Middle East, both the Isra ...
LEGAL ASPECTS OF THE ARAB ISRAELI CONFLICT By Professor Abraham Sion Preamble A lot has been said about the Arab Israeli conflict. At present negotiations are being held between the Israelis and the Palestinian Arabs, under the auspices of the United States, to try and solve the conflict. However, those and previous negotiations seem to be based on false grounds, whereby Israel fails again and again to put forward the very basic arguments that substantiate its rights in the area according to International Law. This is an endeavor to put these arguments forward. The Arab Israeli conflict has been going on for nearly one and a half centuries. One can relate its beginning to the end of the 19th Century, when the Jewish leadership in Eastern and Central Europe, headed by Dr Theodore Herzl, began their aspirations to build their national home in the former land of Israel, which was then known as Southern Syria. At the time, the whole Middle East, which had no recognized boundaries, was ruled by the ...

A recent report was published here this morning regarding Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters declaring Barack Obama suffered “psychological problems” that has him incapable of making the kind of decisions required of his job as President of the United States. Now this information comes via D.C. sources which outline a very brief, troubling, and bizarre phone conversation between British Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama that left the Prime Minister’s staff stunned and baffled as to what could be going on with the alleged “Leader of the Free World.” The communication from British Prime Minister to the president is said to have been initiated at approximately 5:00 eastern time. (Which would also indicate the Prime Minister was working late into the night London time.) According to the published White House schedule for Tuesday, that would have put Barack Obama on Air Force One on his way to Europe. The Prime Minister was said to have to wait for nearly twenty minutes before the call was final ...
Violence Against Women and Girls One in five women will be a victim of rape or attempted rape in her lifetime. Women are more likely to be beaten, raped, or killed by a current or former partner than by any other person, with most studies estimating that 20 to 50 percent of women experience partner violence at some point in their lives. In the United States, a woman is abused, usually by her husband or partner, every 15 seconds and is raped every 90 seconds. One hundred and two countries have no specific legal provisions against domestic violence, and in at least fifty-three countries, marital rape is not a prosecutable offense. Between five hundred thousand and 2 million people-the majority of them women and children-are trafficked annually into situations including prostitution, forced labor, slavery, or servitude. Only 93 countries have some legislative provision prohibiting trafficking in human beings. The UN estimates that approximately five thousand women are murdered each year as a result of honor ...

A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States. He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!" The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am a Mexican." The man goes on and encounters another passerby. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America." The person says, "I not American, I Vietnamese." The new arrival walks farther, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says, "Thank you for wonderful America!" That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Middle East. I am not American." He finally sees a woman and asks, "Are you an American?" She says, "No, I am from Africa." Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?" The African woman checks her watch and says, "Probably at work.."

CHAPTER 5 The Patient In the Middle East, in the small village, where the strange patient lay, things were not going well for the people. They were feeling the pangs of starvation since they'd not been able to leave their homes to look for food. Occasionally, some of them would sneak out and try to get a little food, but the soldiers were everywhere and it was difficult to avoid them. Lately more of them had been trying to creep into the building where the man was. Because of the recent killings and disappearance of their comrades they were more determined than ever to find out more about him. Their fear was strong and they had suffered greatly and almost lost hope of ever being free again, but still they clung to the belief that soon things would change. Much of the same was going on all over the globe. There were many arrests and executions. The mass imprisonment and executions hadn't reached the United States yet, but the fear was, soon they too would have to fear for their lives. Food prices were get ...
In his press conference yesterday, President Obama said the United States will be "vigilant and relentless" in responding to the escalating Islamic terrorist threat in the Middle East. The president and his administration need God’s wisdom as they make decisions of immense importance. As Christians, we need to pray for them and all of our leaders. The Bible commands us clearly to pray “for kings and all who are in authority” (1 Timothy 2:2).
Liberal Media's View: CHILMARK, Mass. – President Barack Obama has spent less time away from the White House than his predecessors. But his two-week break on the resort island of Martha’s Vineyard and hours on the golf course have his detractors teeing up as they highlight the slew of Foreign Policy crises currently facing the United States. The criticism has the president’s aides confronting a question it faces whenever Obama gets away: Is there ever a good time for the commander in chief to take a few days off? Since becoming president, Obama has taken 20 vacations lasting two to 15 days. As of Friday, he has spent all or part of 138 days on “vacation.” By the same point in his second term, President George W. Bush spent 381 partial or complete days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, and another 26 at the Bush Family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, according to CBS News reporter Mark Knoller’s widely respected record keeping on the presidency.

Spending this past week in the Middle East with a delegation from around the globe has been a powerful reminder of the United States' unique role in the world. Because we still have the world's biggest economy (by far), and because we still have the world's biggest military (by far), we're constantly faced with the question and the choice of what responsibility comes with that power? Hearing various perspectives and engaging in conversations this past week has underscored two sentiments for me: 1) The United States must lead in the world, using our unique position to help more people achieve more freedom, greater economic empowerment, and fewer violations of their Human Rights. If we reject this responsibility, who do we then leave to fill that vacuum? 2) In order to lead and in order to be strong in the world, absolutely we must first be strong at home. Addressing domestic issues like poverty, lack of educational equity, wage stagnation, and income inequality isn't just the right thing to do - it also en ...

This article by Hal Lindsey was emailed to me by a friend, and I believe it is very important that people read this.

ISIS Rising By Hal Lindsey With all of our attention focused on Israel lately, and rightly so, it may be shocking to learn that there are dramatic – actually catastrophic – events happening elsewhere in the Middle East. On Thursday, President Obama announced that he had decided to approve the airdrop of humanitarian supplies of food and water to almost 40,000 encircled and besieged Yazidi refugees stranded on Mt. Sinjar in Iraq. He also indicated that he had approved the use of “limited” air strikes by U.S. forces against the aggressor ISIS forces that seek to annihilate them. Not much has been reported about help for the ancient religious community that fled to a craggy mountaintop where there is no cov ...

Everyone understands and agrees that it's far preferable that such heinous acts and deplorable behaviors only occur in the Middle East."

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 ...

They will never stay there, though. They are driven to expand.” A common goal among these radicals is the destruction of the West, she explained. “How do we try to contain that?” Clinton asked. “I’m thinking a lot about containment, deterrence, and defeat.” Her firm stance extended to the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinian terrorists in neighboring Gaza. She expressed support for the Jewish nation’s retaliation to ...

Jay Sterling Adler America has friends throughout the world. After Great Britain and Canada, Israel is probably our closest ally. They are certainly our greatest (only real) ally in the Middle East. Some facts for you to digest: 1) In 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 410–4 to provide Israel with $205 million in funding for Israel's Iron Dome Missile Defense System. 2) In 2012, the House of Representatives authorized an additional $680 million to fund the Iron Dome. 3) In return for the monetary investment, the U.S. asked for, and received, agreement from the Israelis that they would not only share the technology, but spend half of the $680 million they receive in the United States. 4) According to a study done by David Wainer for Bloomberg / Businessweek, the U.S. and European Union gave $3.725 billion to the Palestinian Authority between 2008 and June 2010. 5) Hamas used the bulk of that money -- not on missile defense -- but on 4000 missiles it ultimately fired indiscriminately into Israe ...
USD/JPY Weekly Fundamental Analysis August 4 – 8, 2014 Forecast The USD/JPY climbed as the stronger US dollar pushed the currency pair to 102.69 at the end of the week.

Japanese economic activity will continue to suffer the negative impact from an increase in the consumption tax. The US dollar (USD) is showing broad-based strength as we move into August, supported by an improved economic outlook in the United States coupled with firming inflation and labour market indicators that are shifting the focus toward monetary policy normalization at the US Federal Reserve (Fed). US yields have responded, providing for a fundamentally-driven USD rally on the back of interest rate differentials.

Can ISIS be Saved? For the past few weeks the eyes of the World have been focused once again on the latest threat to peace in the Middle East. We have watched the rise of the new militant terrorist group ISIS make it’s way from Syria across Iraq. ISIS has shown no mercy whatsoever to those who stand in it’s way of forming a new Islamic State or khalifah. Reports of the worst types of brutality are surfacing daily. When it comes to torture, pillage, beheadings, or other types of atrocities, ISIS excels them all. Just today I read a report of beheadings, heads on sticks in the streets, and women being raped. Even Al Qaeda, out of concern for its own image, has distanced itself from this notorious and barbarous group. America is now responding to ISIS threat that it fully intends to bring death and destruction to our own shores. Heightened airport security measures are being introduced for all flights entering the United States. Reports like these cause grave concern and rightly so. No one wants to be th ...

Islamic extremists visit the region to proselytize, recruit, establish business venues to generate funds, and expand their radical networks. Some Muslim communities in the Caribbean and South America are exhibiting increasingly extremist ideology and activities, mostly as a result from ideologues’ activities and external influence from the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. Mr. Chairman, we take all these activities seriously.”"

I have to ask. What happens to those weapons after legally being sold via this program and they leave our control? Are they being monitored, traced, certified, and inventoried after arriving in other countries? Will our troops one day again face these American made weapons on some foreign battlefield? Is this Direct Commercial Sales program a secret cash cow for many US Corporations, International arms merchants, its insiders, or affiliates? Is it possible this could be another ‘off-the-books’ secret covert operation ran by the CIA’s Special Tactical Unit, si .. ...
In 2016, Hillary Clinton can take over and fix everything in the Middle East, based on how good she did as the Secretary of State. Take off the rose colored glasses. George Soros's, Hillary Clinton's, and Barrack Obama's United States is not the Untied States the patriots bled and died for. No Incumbents. Vote every one of our current Senators and Representatives out. Hillary's Platform is More Lies for America. Hillary's Motto is " At this Point, What Difference does it Make." Hillary stands by her testimony about Benghazi. I guess she still believes it was a bunch of drunk guys out for a party after watching some stupid youtube video. Lies, Obstruction of Justice, and Treason should be what the United States is use to after years of Obama's Reign. Please share this with your friends. Susan Rice, Bill Clinton, Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder are nothing but dishonest. Don't forget the lies of our politicians and our Media.

President Obama says that invading militants in Iraq threaten the Middle East region, and perhaps the United States.

“Senator Obama advised caution and warned of overreacting. “We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad,” he wrote. “We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle East descent.” Seven years after writing those words, the man who should never be commander in chief was elected President of the United States of America. In the five years since he’s been at the White House, he’s worked to gut the U.S. military, allowing his United States Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano to officially categorize returning decorated war veterans as number one on the Domestic Terrorist suspect list. Obama policy has legislated rules of engagement aimed at keeping America from winning in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Every flag-draped coffin returned to heartbroken loved ones can be blamed on Barack Hussein Obama. Obama is the president preferred ...
The U.S. Must Listen to Iraqi Kurds Aliza Marcus Aliza Marcus is the author of "Blood and Belief: The P.K.K. and the Kurdish Fight for Independence." JUNE 15, 2014 The New York Times Iraqi Kurdish strategy has paid off. The Kurds spent the past few years working to strengthen the Kurdistan region while keeping a wary distance from the rest of Iraq. They didn’t trust Baghdad, neither to deal with them fairly, nor to survive as a secular, democratic state. The Iraqi Kurds were proved right. Baghdad consistently tried to weaken the Kurdistan Regional Government through fights over oil money and deals – and now the Iraqi state itself is under threat from the Radical Islamist ISIS. The Kurds are in a strong position precisely because they ignored United States pressure to accommodate Baghdad. The Washington approach of putting the Kurds second should finally end. The U.S. should recognize the importance of the Kurds to a stable Middle East. That's why the Washington approach of putting the Kurds second sho ...
China Plans New Silk Road to Extend Reach, Reap Resources Chinese President Xi Jinping has turned his attention to strengthening energy, trade, and security relations with the Arab nations of the Middle East and North Africa as the United States prepares to disengage from Afghanistan. Xi’s regime plans to exploit China’s growing influence in Central Asia and to make his proposed “Silk Road Economic Belt” and “Maritime Silk Road” a reality.
The United States-Tunisia Trade and Investment Council met on June 16, 2014, in Tunis to engage in an ongoing process toward increased trade and investment integration between the two economies, following up on discussions on that subject between President Obama and Prime Minister Jomaa in April.  Led by Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Europe and the Middle East L. Daniel Mullaney and Ministry of Foreign Affairs Director General for Asia and the Americas Ambassador Ghazi Jomaa, the Council pursued its work on several tracks.  First, the Council launched detailed discussions of potential trade and investment commitments in a range of specific areas that could usefully build a foundation for broader and deeper integration.  In a number of those key areas – including market access, services, investment, and intellectual property rights – the United States and Tunisia shared in detail their views based on the experience of previous comprehensive trade and investment agreements they have negotia ...

"Improved coordination" is a necessity in the Middle East, US National Security Adviser Susan Rice said in a keynote address at the Center for a New American Security annual conference. The 35,000 American service members stationed in the Gulf are a daily reminder of the US commitment to the region "and clear evidence that the United States remains ready to defend our core interests, whether it is disrupting Al-Qaeda or preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon," Rice said during the speech entitled "The Strength of American Leadership, the Power of Collective Action." "At the same time, we look to…
West Nile a danger, even up north June 12, 2014 | Vol. 95, No. 138 Associated Press IN THIS 2009 photo released by University of Wisconsin-Madison, mosquito species Culex pipiens is seen. Mosquito season is off to an annoying start in northern Wisconsin, where the problem has been so bad that one canoeing company has been turning away customers rather than sending them out on a bug-infested river. HURLEY - With summer comes sunshine, swimming, barbecues, family vacations and mosquitos, lots of mosquitos. Because of the high-level of mosquitos, people are asked to guard against the spread of West Nile Virus. According to a press release from the Iron County Health Department, the virus is spread to people by the bite of a mosquito infected with the virus. West Nile Virus was first identified in 1937 in Uganda, Africa, and prior to 1999 was only found in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. It was first identified in the United States in 1999 and has since spread across the U.S ., into Canada and Latin ...
 The New Millenium - 21st Century A: Why is the twenty-first century called the Age of Terrorism? Q: On September 11, 2001, nineteen terrorists hijacked four passenger airplanes in the United States. They flew American Airlines Flight 11 and united Airlines Flight 175 into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Another aircraft hit the Pentagon building in WAshington. The passengers and crew of United Airlines Flight 93 attacked the hijackers and saved many lives when the plane crashed into a field instead of a public building. Almost 3,000 people were killed in the attacks. George Bush, teh President of the United States, declared a war on terror that took American troops to Afghanistan and Iraq. Since 2001, terrorist attacks have occurred in order cities around the world. Bombs are detonated in busy market places and city centers, killing innocent people. Terrorism is particularly bad in teh Middle East, wehre Israel has been fighting most of its neighbors for many years, and in Iraq. W ...
THEY RECOGNIZED THAT ISRAEL FAILS TO MEET THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL STANDARDS OF POLITICAL & LEGAL EQUALITY SO FAR AS ITS PALESTINIAN CITIZENS AND SUBJECTS OF OCCUPATION ARE CONCERNED "The MLA’s Resolution 2014-1 (which calls on the US Department of State to contest Israel’s denials of entry to the Palestinian West Bank to United States academics who have been invited to teach, confer, or do research at Palestinian universities) addressed only a tiny segment of Israel’s system of legalized discrimination, one that affects US citizens and scholars seeking to travel to Palestine to teach or do research. But the members who voted for it recognized something beyond their immediate interest in safeguarding the rights of their peers. They recognized that Israel, the United States’ closest ally and a state that so often pretends to be the only democracy in the Middle East, fails to meet the most fundamental standards of political and legal equality so far as its Palestinian citizens and subjects of occupation ...
Why would a President of the United States want a military more loyal to himself than our countries rule of law? Why are so many “key” Generals being forced out of our military? Why are our cities gearing up with military like SWAT teams and heavy vehicles? Why do innocuous agencies within the Federal Government need millions of rounds of ammunition? On the ammunition, issue I have hypothesized the buildup could be for Obama’s secret war on our allies in the Middle East, otherwise known as supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. Unlike the multitudes of liberals and far right wing establishment Republican Party types I actually pay attention to what the enemy is doing and continue to be very skeptical with regard to all of their actions, and comments. Actions DO speak LOUDER than words! The abrogation of our countries Constitution is everywhere; one would have to be only getting their news from the Mainstream Media to not have their spider senses up just a bit, would they not?

ISRAELITES WERE IN AMERICA BEFORE COLUMBUS! By Pastor Alan Campbell, Northern Ireland 1992 marked the 500th Anniversary of Columbus' voyage of discovery from Spain to what was then known as the New World in 1492. No doubt there were those who exploited the celebration of this event to emphasize the Hispanic as opposed to the Anglo-Saxon element in American Culture and society. However it is becoming an increasingly well known and documented fact, that not only were there North Europeans on the American continent long before the voyage of Columbus, but also that Phoenicians/Israelites sailed from the Middle East through the Mediterranean and across the Atlantic to these shores centuries before the birth of Christ. I became aware of these exciting facts of suppressed history during my first visit to the United States in 1984. While attending the AMERICA'S PROMISE MINISTRIES camp in New Mexico that year, I was able to visit the site at Los Lunas, near Albuquerque, and see the rock with the Ten Commandments c ...

We should redeploy our troops out of the Middle East, South Korea, Japan and Europe. The closest thing the United States has to state enemies—North Korea, Iran, and Syria—together spend about $10 billion annually on their militar- ies, less than one-sixtieth of what we do. They are local troublemakers, but all lack military means to strike our shores—a tactic that would only invite their destruction in any case. Russia’s declining democracy is troubling, but no immediate threat to Americans. Should Russia threaten Europe, the Europeans, with a collective economy larger than ours, should defend themselves.
DILEMMA | Reasons why US will not help PH vs China in fight over Ayungin China is not currently facing an Ayungin dilemma. It's not equally worried about a rogue state rep. Why, the baddest bad *** rogue state today is the United States, the state that routinely kills and murders alleged combatants and non-combatants in Pakistan and other countries in the arc of crisis from Central Asia to the Middle East. Russia is considered by some as another rogue state for what it has done in the Crimea. In this sense, China is in good company -- the movers and shakers of the world today. US not signatory to UNCLOS In my opinion, it is the US (and the Philippines), which face an Ayungin dilemma. The US is not a signatory to UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) and thus does not recognize such concepts and principles as archipelagic state and exclusive economic zone upon which the Philippine claim is based. So, how can you "support an ally" for a cause based on principles you yourself do not accept ...
MAN AND HIS CRISIS American president Lyndon Johnson confirmed his visit to Expo, more specifically for the national day of the United States, only a few hours before his arrival on may 25. M. Johnson, on his way to Ottawa to discuss the grave crisis in the Middle East, took the opportunity to make a stop in Montreal. Still, the international climate of high tension would propelled him to complete his tour of the islands at a brisk pace, all in an hour and a half. It started with a brief ceremony at Place des Nations under exceptional security measures, where a courteous crowd of 8,000 people welcomed the president with reserve. Everything went relatively well until the arrest of five anti Viet Nam war hecklers, and the embarrassing tearing of the American Flag while it was hoisted on the mast of honour. The rest of the visit went less embarrassingly. After offering a gift to the people of Canada, President Johnson toured the Pavilion of the United States on the double before slipping away en route for Ot ...
So in the next day or two, you will most likely hear from the visiting Pope something to the extent of: The long suffering and persecuted "Palestinian" people must justly and immediately have a homeland of their own. He will say this while in the company of a leadership that has swallowed up billions of dollars of aid money from neighboring Arab countries, the European Union, the United States, and naive sympathizers around the world, AND is part of a worldwide Jihad that is sending Christians fleeing left and right from both the Palestinian Authority and the entire region of the Middle East. This Pope is seemingly a decent person with decent motives, but his central crusade is one against poverty and suffering, and noone mythically fits that mold more than our "Palestinian" neighbors here in Israel. While true suffering throughout Africa, South America, and the world is largely ignored by the Western world, this one group of people who through corrupt leadership and an unquenchable desire to be rid of Is ...
So, we are going to be talking about stuff on my new series called "I can't think of a better name for a series about me talking about things" Today's topic of much controversy: Marijuana, or cannabis in English. Now let's look at the brief history of the plant. Marijuana was used thousands of years ago in places such as India, Egypt, the Middle East, and China. The people of these lands had used marijuana for religious purposes, for treating numerous diseases including Gout and addiction to other things. It was also used for depression in some cases. Marijuana traveled around the world fast. By the turn of the 19th century, Marijuana was used in countries such as Jamaica, United States, Holland, and Mexico. Soon after the drugs became popular, many countries outlawed them. The United States made the drug illegal after cotton farmers were jealous about the amount of money it makes. So, they told the U.S. government the Marijuana causes interracial relationships and demons. So, the government outlawed its ...

An Illinois businessman who contracted the mysterious Middle East virus know as MERS is believed to be the first case of person-to-person transmission inside the United States. Federal health officials say the businessman was likely exposed to the virus when he shook hands during two business meetings with a man authorities are calling "patient number one." The man from Illinois is a health professional who worked with MERS patients in Saudi Arabia and brought the disease stateside last month. He flew from Jeddah to London to Boston to Atlanta, then finally to Orlando -- coming in contact with 500 travelers on his U.S. flights alone. Learn more:
The Center for Disease Control said in a press release it had confirmed that an Illinois man was the third recorded case of the potentially fatal MERS -- that's Middle East Respiratory Syndrome -- in the United States.

Samuel Eto'o has labelled Jose Mourinho a "fool" after the Chelsea boss questioned the veracity of his official age earlier in the season. Mourinho was unwittingly caught on camera lamenting the quality of the strikers at his disposal at a sponsors' event in Switzerland in February, and jokingly suggested that Eto'o could be older than he claims to be. The now-33-year-old appeared to react in jest by celebrating his next Chelsea goal by holding his back in false pain, aping the manner of a geriatric. However, Eto'o - who is now out of contract at Stamford Bridge - has blasted Mourinho for his comments, while also insisting that he can continue playing at the highest level for the foreseeable future. "Today, I am 33-years-old - and it is not because a fool called me an old man that you must believe it," the Cameroonian told africanfootball.com. "And you may have noticed that the old man was better than the youngsters. Some believe I am going to retire in the United States or in the Middle East, but I have ...
Vision: SGT Ray Vance in Afghanistan On 25 April 2014 Australian, New Zealand, Turkish and other Coalition military members currently deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan gathered together at dawn to pause and reflect on Anzac Day. A moving dawn service was conducted at the Kabul International Airport-North military base involving an Australian and New Zealand combined catafalque party and incorporating senior military representation from Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, United Kingdom, France and United States. Major General David Coghlan, AM, provided a key note address as the Senior Australian Defence Force Officer which highlighted the importance of also reflecting on those that had fallen whilst serving in the Middle East Area of Operations. Following the service, members enjoyed a combined breakfast and a friendly game of touch football between nations.
Twenty Florida Healthcare Workers Tested for MERS Virus Robert Lowes May 13, 2014 Twenty healthcare workers at 2 hospitals in Orlando, Florida, are being tested for the deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) after exposure to a patient who represents the second confirmed case in the United States, hospital officials said today at a news conference. Two of the healthcare workers at one of the facilities — Dr. P. Phillips Hospital — have already experienced MERS symptoms. One was treated and released for home quarantine yesterday while the other was admitted, according to Geo Morales, a spokesperson for Orlando Health, the nonprofit system that operates the 2 hospitals. All of the other individuals who were tested also were placed in home isolation for 14 days after they were evaluated for signs and symptoms of MERS. On May 9, Dr. P. Phillips Hospital admitted a male healthcare worker from Saudi Arabia — where 112 people have died from the virus as of Monday — who experienced ...

Friends against the Bedroom Tax... If you want to know the origin of the attack on our welfare system - then you really need to read: The Shock Doctrine - the rise of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein Around the world in Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos; exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally remake our world in their image. They are the shock doctors. The Shock Doctrine cracks open the secret history of our era. Exposing these global profiteers, Naomi Klein discovered information and connections that shocked even her about how comprehensively their beliefs now dominate our world.

Dear Mr. Barnard, Thank you for taking the time to contact me with regard to the Keystone XL Pipeline. As you may know, in 2008, TransCanada Keystone Pipeline, LP proposed the creation of a network of pipelines designed to provide America with a safe and reliable supply of energy resources from one of our greatest international allies, Canada. The final component of the three-phase project, the Keystone XL pipeline, would be capable of transporting up to 830,000 barrels of Canadian crude oil per day to refineries within the United States, increasing the total Keystone network capacity to nearly 1.3 million barrels a day. Construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline will create more than 20,000 American jobs and, once fully operational, the Keystone XL pipeline will reduce our demand for oil imported from hostile and unstable regions of the world, like the Middle East. Although approval for the Keystone XL pipeline had been under review by the Federal Government for over three years, the Obama Administration an ...

Scientists find MERS virus antibodies that may lead to treatments Scientists have found natural human antibodies to the newly-emerging Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus and say their discovery marks a step towards developing treatments for the often fatal disease. In one study in the Science Translational Medicine journal, a Chinese-led team found that two antibodies, called MERS-4 and MERS-27, were able to block cells in a lab dish from becoming infected with the MERS virus. In a second study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) journal, a team from the United States said their discovery of a panel of seven neutralising antibodies offered the long-term possibility that either a vaccine or treatments could be developed to fight MERS.

The Best of Nick's Blog February 2, 2011 Puberty and the Middle East Uprising By Nicholas Contompasis If you’re old enough to remember, back in 1969, here in the United States the median age was 26 and we had riots, assassinations, political turmoil and a crime rate that most thought couldn’t possibly get any higher. Since then, as our median age increased to now 37, our crime rate has tumbled, assassinations are mere talking points in history classes and riots, so far, can only be found on videos on the Internet. Riots, assassinations and general political turmoil come with the territory when your country is young. It’s just a fact of life that most mature nations are forced to put up with, as they gaze from afar, hopefully. This pubescent period unfortunately, can last as long as ten years. The fallout from this turmoil can get out of hand and lead to major wars both regional and global, so these new developments in the Middle East are indeed troubling and should be watched closely.

WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENING IN THE USA AND OTHER NATIONS AND HOW THAT AFFECTS US ALL? Just read a little of this article from raptureready that is put out weekly called : Nearing Midnight Apr 28, 2014 The Global Arms Race Business is booming for the world’s arms merchants. While the U.S. and Europe have been cutting back their military budgets, nations mostly in Asia and the Middle East have been in an undeclared arms race. More than 23 countries have more than doubled their military expenditure since 2004. India is a perfect example of this ramp-up. Last year, it became the biggest foreign buyer of U.S. arms. New Delhi has among the world’s largest naval building program with 45 warships and submarines under construction. It also has a deal in the works to buy Rafale fighter jets from France. Russia has boosted its military budget. For the first time in ten years, Russia has spent a higher percentage of its national wealth on its military than the United States. A new report from the Stockholm Intern ...
Fourth: "Like Ronald Reagan, Mitt Romney would have restored the preponderance of American power that has eroded even more precipitously during Obama’s second term than his first. Romney would have increased, rather than slashed, the defense budget." "Romney would have reacted vigilantly to Putin’s campaign of aggression in Ukraine: ending Obama’s feckless “reset” and imposing serious sanction on Russia’s banking and energy sectors. Romney would have deployed missile defense in Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary, which Obama blundered by scrapping. In the Middle East, America’s reputation would not have suffered greviously from making withdrawal, rather than victory, the priorities in Iraq and Afghanistan, while issuing multiple Red Lines in Syria that the United States lacked the will to enforce. Romney never would have tolerated a nuclear Iran, lifted sanctions on the Iranian regime, or engaged in negotiations tranquilizing the U.S. to the gathering danger of a nuclear Iran. Nor would ...
Ten Major U.S. Disasters on Dates Significant to Treatment of Israel-Truth!

Iran six powers seek to narrow significant gaps in nuclear talks. According to Reuter’s news agency, Iran will never slow down its nuclear research program, its Supreme Leader said on Wednesday as negotiators from Tehran and six world powers struggled to narrow "significant gaps" that the United States warned might be insurmountable. Clerical supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that the Islamic Republic's negotiating team in Vienna should not yield to issues "forced upon them". "These negotiations should continue," he told nuclear scientists in Tehran, the official IRNA news agency reported. "But all should know that negotiations will not stop or slow down any of Iran's activities in nuclear research and development." The stakes in a deal are high on both sides. Western powers, along with Russia and China, want to prevent chronic tensions in the Middle East from boiling over into a wider war or triggering a regional nuclear arms race. Iran, for its part, is keen to be rid of international sancti ...
I urge everyone to read the following words in order to better understand and navigate the undercurrent of the current Cold War that threatens to kill many more innocent people in the East and in the West! Behind the Russian Rage: As the old saying goes, you cannot truly understand a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.Perhaps Americans, a fortunate tribe, should try to see the world from the vantage point of the Russian people and Vladimir Putin, and, as the poet Robert Burns said, “see ourselves as others see us.”At 35, Putin was a rising star in the elite secret police, the KGB, of a superpower with a worldwide empire.The USSR was almost three times as large as the United States.

In it he states, Of all the costs imposed on our society by the top 1 percent, perhaps the greatest is this: the erosion of our sense of identity, in which fair play, equality of opportunity, and a sense of community are so important. America has long prided itself on being a fair society, where everyone has an equal chance of getting ahead, but the statistics suggest otherwise: the chances of a poor citizen, or even a middle-class citizen, making it to the top in America are smaller than in many countries of Europe. The cards are stacked against them. It is this sense of an unjust system without opportunity that has given rise to the conflagrations in the Middle East: rising food prices and growing and persistent youth unemployment simply served ...
Wealthy Nigerians To Buy N448bn Private Jets At least 12 brand new private jets ordered by Nigerians and some corporate bodies will be delivered to the country this year. This is an offshoot of the projection by private jet manufacturers to deliver 70 brand new private jets to the country within the next five years. The Regional Vice-President, Sales, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, Bombardier Business Aircraft, the Canada-based aircraft manufacturing firm, Mr. Khadar Mattar, who made the disclosure in an exclusive interview with our correspondent, described the private jet market in Nigeria as currently “booming.” He spoke on the sidelines of Nigerian Economic Summit organised by London-based Economist in Lagos on Monday. Mattar, who said his company delivered 88 out of the 138 aircraft currently flying in Nigeria, noted that Bombardier was currently the market leader in terms of the number of aircraft in Africa. He said, “In Nigeria, we are looking at another 60 to 70 new business aircraft within ...
Well, Here it is! Only the blind stupid and those supporting this Devil. won't recognize this. First Look up Riyadh and how it is linked to Turkey! An article just published Fri Mar 28, 2014 9:09pm EDT Reuters Obama met Saudi King Abdullah in Riyadh what is in Riyadh? Al Imam Turki ibn Abdallah Mosque - The Grand Mosque Of Riyadh Obama sought to reassure Saudi King Abdullah on Friday that he would support moderate Syrian rebels Flying by helicopter to the king's desert camp, Obama underscored the importance of Washington's relationship with the world's largest oil exporter in a two-hour meeting that focused on the Middle East but did not touch on energy or Human Rights. Last year senior Saudi officials warned of a "major shift" away from the United States after bitter disagreements over its response to the "Arab Spring" uprisings, efforts to negotiate with Iran, and Washington's decision not to intervene militarily in Syria, where Riyadh wants more American support for rebels. The leaders had a full ...

Egypt Tries to Find Its Place in a Changing Middle East March 26, 2014 | 0107 GMT The United States on Tuesday condemned an Egyptian court's death sentence for 529 members of the Muslim Brotherhood, just the latest sign of strain on the U.S.-Egyptian relationship that for decades was the bedrock of regional stability. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf called the verdict, handed down a day earlier, "outrageous, shocking, unconscionable" and warned Cairo that the manner in which it proceeded with the trials and the sentences would have a direct bearing on future U.S. aid to the world's most populous Arab state. The reaction from the United States occurred as the Arab League summit in Kuwait is being held under the shadow of a dispute between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, a dispute that to a great degree centers on Doha's support for the Brotherhood. It is not clear if the controversial ruling was issued on direct orders from the highest levels of the Egyptian regime. However, Cairo wants to break the m ...
Distraction comes easily when one is bored; in 1948, the Berlin Airlift compelled Josef Stalin to unblock land-access to Berlin, Germany. That was not a war but the USA was victorious, their last clear victory. Today, nearly 66 years after Ezekiel's DRY BONES PROPHECY was fulfilled, the war that Muslims launched on Israel to destroy it, to drive the descendants of Jacob, the Jews, the Hebrews, into the Mediterranean failed. Little Israel defeated the much larger armies arrayed against them. Each successive war they won. Why? The DRY BONES PROPHECY! Today, the threat to Israel continues but they have forgotten their God, they say their Armed Forces are their salvation, that plus the United States of America. America has grown weary of policing the world, too many American dead, little appreciation. Distracted now by Vlad(little Hitler) Putin, and the Middle East aflame, a weary USA isn't rising to the bell.
By Jacob G. Hornberger As English colonists living in America understood, living under an empire is not a pleasant experience. Empire officials are inevitably arrogant, pretentious, pompous, haughty, big-headed, insufferable type of people. They believe that others should bow down them, pay them homage, and behave subserviently to them. American colonists, of course, haven’t been the only ones who have had to suffer under the dominion of imperialist officials. Generations of people in Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia have had to live under the insufferable rule of officials in the French Empire and British Empire. And now we have the U.S. Empire, whose officials have proven to be no different in how they treat people around the world. Like other empires in history, U.S. empire officials treat foreigners like garbage. That’s precisely why there is so much deeply seated resentment against the United States all over the world — not because people resent Americans for their wealth, freedom, o ...
THY WILL BE DONE Are these the End Times? The cultural and spiritual warfare that is taking place between the "Christian" West, and the Islamic Middle East, together with the extreme Climate Changes taking place around the world, have become a source of concern for many. Coupled with the polarization of the populous within the United States, and the mass apostasy from Christianity in the West, many Christians are now thinking we must be entering the period of the End Times. Yet when we consider the words of the Our Father, "Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven", we must know, as Christians, that our prayers do make a difference. Just as the faithful of the Early Church looked at events taking place in their world as possible signs of the imminent Second Coming of Christ, they, nevertheless, kept their focus on the possibility that there could be a "first resurrection", as described in the 20th chapter of the Book of Revelation, where the Church could experience a triumph, even in this world. It i ...
In the absence of better options, the United States and its partners in the West could be betting on the Islamic card, but with doubts and fears Egypt meet its challenges Ernesto Gomez Abascal Rebellion No one can doubt the importance of Egypt and the influence it has on the political situation, especially in North Africa and the Middle East, despite being submerged in the shadows for many years by the pro-imperialist governments and Sadat Mubarak. Three years ago, when he began the so-called "Arab Spring", the U.S. and its NATO allies, although hypocritically speak of democracy, freedom, respect for Human Rights, etc.., Did everything possible to save this last dictator , who had served them unconditionally for almost 30 years of governance. But the pressure of the masses in the streets, forced the resignation of the ruling few days later, on February 11, 2011. Then they tried to save what they could of the regime, Marshal Hussein Tantawi, committed to the same policy of Mubarak and as corrupt as this, p ...

Hannelore Morton We had “Smiling Jimmy Carter” to thank for destroy the once great relationship with Iran that made the Middle East a safer place. Carter was once a shoe in for the worst President in United States history until Obama rode his camel into Washington. Carter won A Nobel Peace Prize in 2002 as did Obama in 2009. Neither men caused peace and the world is a farm more dangerous place because they were put in positions of power. Yes Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran had his SAVAK [Ministry of Security] Iran Intelligence Agencies put in place by the CIA. They kept order with iron fists. Carter threw the Shah of Iran under the bus, ushering in the Iranian Revolution and the mullahs who immediately began ethnic cleansing of the educated, the higher ranking officers in the Shah’s military thus leading to the end of America’s relation with Tehran.

ISRAEL UPDATE House Adopts Bill Dramatically Strengthening U.S. - Israel Relationship The House of Representatives overwhelmingly adopted the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act of 2013 (H.R. 938). This bipartisan bill, authored by Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Ed Royce (R-CA) and Eliot Engel (D-NY) will dramatically strengthen the relationship between the two allies as they work to confront new threats and challenges in the Middle East. The bill declares that Israel is a “major strategic partner” of the United States. This designation lays the foundation for expanded U.S.-Israel cooperation in a wide variety of spheres, including defense, intelligence, homeland security, energy, agriculture, science and trade. A companion bill has been introduced in the Senate by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO). AIPAC urges the Senate to act on this critical legislation.
Twenty-one years ago today terrorists first tried to take down the tallest buildings in America's largest city. In retaliation against United States' support of Israel and intervention in the Middle East, two men parked a yellow Ryder truck in a public parking garage beneath the World Trade Center and detonated a half-ton bomb. The blast did not topple the towers, as the driver of that truck, Ramzi Yousef, had hoped. But smoke choked the buildings and knocked out its power. Six people died and more than a thousand others were injured. It was the first ever terrorist attack on American soil. Please remember those that died and were injured today
For Washington, a consistent element is that democracy and the rule of law are acceptable if and only if they serve official strategic and economic objectives. But American public attitudes on Iraq and Israel/Palestine run counter to government policy, according to polls. Therefore the question presents itself whether a genuine democracy promotion might best begin within the United States. -Noam Chomsky It's funny how the US says its spreading democracy around the world, and especially the Middle East. Considering thr long term alliances it has kept. One example is Saudi Arabia, not the bastion of democratic freedom. And they own 6% of our money. (In 2010 not sure current stat) another would be the overthrow of Mosaddeq in Iran, conspicuously after he planned to nationalize Iranian oil reserves. Or of the countless manipulation of South American Politics for the likes of the Standard Oil and Fruit companies. And they say they hate us because we are free. Hmm
Event Preview: DISCOP Istanbul By Kristin Brzoznowski From March 4 to 6, more than 1,000 delegates are expected to gather for the fourth edition of DISCOP Istanbul. The attendees will be representing 500-plus new and established, regional and global companies that are driving the content business and digital changes with and across the Middle East, West and Central Asia, the Gulf Region and North Africa. Having Turkey as its home has served the market well, according to Patrick Jucaud, the general manager of event organizer Basic Lead. “Turkey has become a major regional production center,” he says, pointing to the international success of Turkish dramas and formats. “Today, the Turks are exporting close to $200 million worth of series and formats. This makes them the second largest producer of series in the world, after the United States and before Latin America. They have plans within the next ten years to export $1 billion worth of content.” DISCOP Istanbul has grown in step with the emergence ...

Osama Bin Laden Terrorist / Revolutionary Born: 1957 Died: 2 May 2011 (shot to death) Birthplace: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia Best known as: The mastermind of the 11 September 2001 attacks Also known as: Usama Bin Laden, Ussamah Bin Laden The United States government made Osama Bin Laden their most wanted criminal after he claimed credit for attacks on 11 September 2001. He eluded captrue until he was shot and killed by an American military team in Pakistan on 2 May 2011. Osama Bin Laden joined the Afghanistani resistance in 1979 and became a commander in the guerilla wars against the Soviet Union in the 1980s. After that war ended, Osama Bin Laden founded a loose organization of pro-Islamic terrorists known as al-Qaeda ("the base"). He then joined with the Egyptian militants led by Ayman al-Zawahiri to form an international group whose goals included driving the United States out of the Middle East and overthrowing the government of Saudi Arabia. Attacks which Osama Bin Laden is believed to have plotted or insp ...
This week on 'The Hal Lindsey Report' When I consider Iran, the word "paradox" comes to mind. Today, we think of Iran primarily as Israel's greatest threat. The leaders of the Islamic Republic consistently and often threaten to wipe Israel from the map at their first opportunity. Yet for generations, Iran has been home to the largest community of Jews in the Middle East outside of Israel. And they have lived there in peace and a certain degree of harmony. In fact, until the Muslims overthrew the Shah more than 30 years ago, Israel and Iran were, effectively, allies. There are, in fact, still Jews living in Iran. They have jobs, businesses, a member of Parliament, and even a hospital, but now just a few thousand remain out of the 150,000 who once lived and thrived there. Even in their dealings with the United States, whom they call "The Great Satan" and are determined to destroy, the Iranians say one thing and do another. While the new president, Hassan Rouhani and his cabinet mount a successful major "cha ...
HOW THE U.S. SOLVED THE PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI CONFLICT by John R. Miller With the help of prognosticator John R. Miller — former U.S. ambassador-at-large on modern slavery, visiting scholar at the Institute for Government Studies at UC-Berkeley, and Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute — we present this memo from the year 2016, which explains what misfortunes might have befallen the Middle East by then. SBU (Sensitive but Unclassified) February 20, 2016 Dear Madam Secretary: You have asked for my recommendation on how the United States should respond to the requests for admission into this country of hundreds of thousands of Israeli refugees. You have also asked for my review and assessment of the success of our Middle East peace efforts. Although I write as your Counselor, I believe my views are shared by the Near Eastern Affairs Bureau. The current situation may be disturbing, but we have made great progress on the Israeli-Palestinian issue since 2010. That was the year that you and the president ...

I wonder, is the United States of America on the path of its own self-destruction because of the leaks and debt? Will the People's Republic of China will follow if the USA collapses or will it brutally take over Taiwan and nuke Japan? What about the Russian Federation, will it end up having a massive upheaval there and will the European Union implode? Will the drug cartels in Latin America overpower the governments there? Is there gonna be an Samson Option occurring in the Middle East? Will an African Second Great War occur (the Second Congo War being the first) and will the North and South Korea duke it out like its 1950? Will the recession worsen into a Second Great Depression? Will the Third World War end it? Human history is surely interesting, ain't it?
