Meet the New Saudi King THINGS UNLIKELY TO CHANGE UNDER King Salman With the death of King Abdullah, there's a new face at the top in Saudi Arabia, but not new blood: Like every other Saudi king since 1953, King Salman is a son of Ibn Saud, also known as King Abdulaziz, though he's the first king born after his father established the kingdom in 1932. The 79-year-old has a reputation as a moderate, at least by Saudi standards, a Reuters profile finds. The former defense minister, who governed Riyadh province for nearly 50 years, thinks democracy wouldn't work in the kingdom and wants to move slowly with reforms to avoid a backlash from conservatives, according to a 2007 US diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks. His rule may be a short one: He has had at least one stroke and is rumored to have dementia or Parkinson's disease, the Guardian reports. "He doesn't blindly accept everything the United States says, but at the same time he understands the importance of the relationship, which goes beyond oil," for ...
Middle East News: The Arab Spring has already deposed leaders like Zine El Abidine Bin Ali of Tunisia, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. Syria's Bashar al-Assad is tenaciously holding on to power while rebels continue to fight for control of the country. The Islamic State (of Iraq and Syria), under nominal control of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, challenges the very concept of statehood. They intend to install a new caliphate across the entire region. In short, Southwest Asia is an absolute mess. Now this . . . The government of Yemen, which had the full support of the United States government, has fled in the face of a rival Shia Houthi insurgency. (Most of the Arabian Peninsula follows Sunni Islam.) Western states like France fear a new failed state, one where chaos reigns and Islamic terrorism is exported, much like the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris. Add to this mix the just-announced death of Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah and one can find the world's most problematic political geography .. ...

Both headlines in the press today. “The King of Saudi Arabia is to refer the case of blogger and activist Raif Badawi's to the Supreme Court, his wife has told BBC News. Saudi authorities postponed Badawi's second round of public flogging for a week, citing medical reasons, the Associated Press reported. In May last year, authorities sentenced Badawi, 31, to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes after he used his liberal blog to criticise Saudi Arabia's powerful clerics. The Jiddah Criminal Court also ordered he pay a fine of 1 million Saudi riyals (£175,700).” AP Obama: Europe should better integrate Muslims WASHINGTON (AFP) - US President Barack Obama on Friday urged European governments to try to better assimilate their Muslim minority populations as they respond to extremist attacks like last week’s shootings in Paris.

1.The Anglo-American Axis is represented, first and foremost, by the major English-speaking countires of the world: USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. The European member nations of NATO, such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands are also closely aligned with the AAA as are all the Scandinavian countries. So are the Asian Pacific Rim nations of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar also owe their allegiance to the AAA. The World Shadow Government is a secret, supranational organization which completely controls the Anglo-American Axis, as well as the European Union, NATO, among many other institutional entities which constitute the Global Control Matrix.[2] The very backbone of the Anglo-American Axis (AAA) is formed by the ‘special relationship’ that exists between the United States of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK).

PUNCTUATION Punctuation means the correct use of full stops, commas, colons and question marks etc into a piece of writing. When we speak we make pauses or variations of tone.The object in writing as well as speaking is to make sense clear and easy to understand.You can say that a complete difference of meaning can be caused by diffrence of punctuation.Loo k at the following sentence, for example: Aslam said the boy is silly. We can punctuate it in two ways: 1 ) - Aslam said, "The boy is silly." 2 ) - "Aslam," said the boy, "is silly." You see the words in each sentence are exactly the same; it is the punctuation that makes the difference. In sentence 1 it is the boy who is silly. In sentence 2 it is Aslam who is silly. THE FULL STOP ( . ) It represents the greatest pause and separation. It is used: 1 - At the end of a complete sentence. (Time and tide wait for no man.) 2 - After abbreviations and initials: M.A for Master of Arts. B.A. (Bachelor of Arts). U.S.A. (United States of America). K.S.A. (Kingdom ...

Share this immediately: the likely cause of gas dropping in price: Is it just my imagination or is there a global oil war underway pitting the United States and Saudi Arabia on one side against Russia and Iran on the other? One can’t say for sure whether the American-Saudi oil alliance is deliberate or a coincidence of interests, but, if it is explicit, then clearly we’re trying to do to President Vladimir Putin of Russia and Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, exactly what the Americans and Saudis did to the last leaders of the Soviet Union: pump them to death — bankrupt them by bringing down the price of oil to levels below what both Moscow and Tehran need to finance their budgets.

Hi peeps, Let's talk from different point of view of Malaysia oil prices for ron95,97 and diesel that is drop to new standard level prices starting 01.01.2015 topics to something to think of what could make it happen and posibilty of the cause.Well yah it's a good news of course and a good start for our new year of 2015 also the impact on our economy as well but do most of us,ever think why or who is to blame for the staggering collapse of the price of oil? Is it the Saudis? Is it the United States? Are Saudi Arabia and the U.S. government working together to hurt Russia? And if this oil war continues, how far will the price of oil end up falling in 2015? And if the prices keep collapsing what is the impact to our economics? Some analysts believe that it could ultimately go below 20 US dollars a barrel (and some even predicted it will go below 14 dollars per barrel) until year to come. If we see anything even close to that, the U.S. economy could lose millions of good paying jobs, billions of dollars of . ...
Another Nicola Nasser pearl of wisdom on ISIS and Israel. Fighting ‘Islamic State’ is Not the Israeli Priority "Defying a consensus that it is a priority by the world community comprising international rivals like the United States, Europe, Russia and China and regional rivals like Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia, Israel, like Turkey, does not eye the U.S. – led war on the IS as its regional priority. Nor fighting Israel is an IS priority. The Israeli top priority is to dictate its terms to Syria to sign a peace treaty with Israel before withdrawing its forces from the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, Palestinian territories and Lebanese southern lands. For this purpose, Israel is determined to break down the Syria – Iran alliance, which has been the main obstacle preventing Israel from realizing its goals. Changing the ruling regime in either Damascus or Tehran would be a step forward. Towards this Israeli strategic goal the IS could not be but an Israeli asset. “To defeat ISIS (The Islamic State in ...
S’Arabia Refuses to Grant Flight Permit for Nigerian Arms Procured from Pakistan By Senator Iroegbu Nigeria’s effort at ending the Boko Haram insurgency has run into another hitch with the refusal by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to grant over-flight permits to cargo planes conveying military equipment and armoured tanks procured by the Nigerian government from Pakistan. THISDAY gathered authoritatively from intelligence sources that the decision by the Saudi authorities is certain to cause a diplomatic row at a time the Jonathan administration is eager to end the insurgency in the North-east before the 2015 general election.

ORIGINS OF TALIBAN The Creation of Taliban goes back to 1979, when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. In 1973, The Soviet Union brought their soldiers into Afghanistan claiming to rebuild the crushing economy. However, the Soviet was resented by the Mujahidin (from whom the Taliban evolved from). At the same time, the Soviet Union and United States were engaged in a Cold War. The U.S. was genuinely interested in counter power against the Soviet Union. Thus, Soviet Union's entrance in Afghanistan signaled the Soviet's increase in power and strength gaining more power and strength so the United States decided to intervene.Because the United States did not want to see the Soviet Union take control over Central Asia, the U.S. decided to fund troops to fight against the Soviet Union. These troops were called the Mujahedeen. The Mujahedeen were armed and supported by several countries including, the U.S., Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Under Reagan's presidency Congress which was led by Democrats, decided to for ...

This is the mess your grand kids are gunna have to sort out As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness: United States — Muslim 1.0% Australia — Muslim 1.5% Canada — Muslim 1.9% China — Muslim 1%-2% Italy — Muslim 1.5% Norway — Muslim 1.8% At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs: Denmark — Muslim 2% Germany — Muslim 3.7% United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7% Spain — Muslim 4% Thailand — Muslim 4.6% From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feat ...
Thomas Ice America in Bible Prophecy?? The recent war in Iraq is but one example. In a quarter of a millennium it has become a nation unlike any other nation in the history of the world. In some respects, it rivals nations with much longer histories. Yet the Bible is remarkably silent when speaking about the role of America in Bible prophecy. Dr. Tim LaHaye writes, "One of the hardest things for American prophecy students to accept is that the United States is not clearly mentioned in Bible prophecy, yet our nation is the only superpower in the world today."[1]Dr. LaHaye has put his finger upon the source that likely generates the often ask question, "How does America fit into Bible prophecy?" Rarely, if ever, does anyone ask, "How does Mexico, or Canada, or Chile fit into Bible prophecy?" The United States has a strong Christian heritage and is currently the world's only superpower. Since many Christians believe that we are near the end of the age, it is hard to envision a prophetic scenario which exclud ...
You must have heard of the declining crude oil price. Unlike past fluctuations in price of crude oil, this one is so bad that everyone is going to feel the effect. If the austerity measures announced by Minister of Finance and co-ordinating minister of the economy (Nigeria's unofficial defacto Prime Minister) - Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala have not affected you directly, the recent devaluation of the Naira would. All these are happening because Saudi Arabia is locked in a mortal fight to destroy the US crude oil production. Experts believe that the United States, with its 11 million barrels production a day this summer, became the world’s largest oil producer, overtaking the former number one, Saudi Arabia. Most of America’s new oil is produced through fracking, an exploration system that extracts oil from shale rock using the process known as Hydraulic Fracturing or fracking. This process of splitting rocks using high-pressure liquid is expensive and is believed to be profitable as long as crude oil price is ...
Challenging the Exorbitant Privilege of the U.S .Dollar The Future of the BRICS Development Bank At the end of the Sixth BRICS[1] Summit in Fortaleza, Brazil on July 16, 2014, the leaders of the BRICS countries announced the “Fortaleza Action Plan.” This plan is in the context of the Fortaleza Declaration, [i] where the leaders reinforced their position that BRICS would be an international force in challenging the neo-liberal policies of the Washington Consensus. Touching on areas of major destabilization in the world – from Syria to Sudan and from Ukraine to Iraq – the leaders spelt out the need for new paths to peace and for strengthening the United Nations to resolve the outstanding questions of war and insecurity. The most daring aspect of the Fortaleza Declaration was the announcement of a new financial architecture to intervene in relation to the international tensions that have arisen since the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States announced the monetary policy of Quantitative Easing T ...
Former Mossad chief: For the first time, I fear for the future of Zionism The nation of Israel is galloping blindly toward Bar Kochba's war on the Roman Empire. The result of that conflict was 2,000 years of exile. By Shabtai Shavit Haaretz -- Nov. 24, 2014 From the beginning of Zionism in the late 19th century, the Jewish nation in the Land of Israel has been growing stronger in terms of demography and territory, despite the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians. We have succeeded in doing so because we have acted with wisdom and stratagem rather than engaging in a foolish attempt to convince our foes that we were in the right. Today, for the first time since I began forming my own opinions, I am truly concerned about the future of the Zionist project. I am concerned about the critical mass of the threats against us on the one hand, and the government’s blindness and political and strategic paralysis on the other. Although the State of Israel is dependent upon the United States, the relationship betwe ...
Saudi Arabia and the United States are preparing for a price war?. Actions cartel caused panic in the market
By Laith Saud November 24, 2014 The United Arab Emirates (UAE) made headlines recently by listing The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Relief and the Muslim American Society (MAS) as ‘terrorist’ groups. All of these groups share several things in common: They all unequivocally and officially condemn terrorism, they provide humanitarian aid, charity or advocacy to parts of the Muslim world and they maintain pro-Palestinian positions. The UAE’s recent designation of these groups has literally put it at odds with every major pro-Palestinian advocacy or civil rights group in the western world. Theories have been offered for why this happened, but we will see that the UAE’s motive to realign itself in the region means distancing itself from the Palestinian cause. Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s Strategic Concerns Many analysts argue that the motivating force behind the UAE’s ‘terrorist designation list’ is contempt for the Muslim Brotherhood (MB); in the United States, CAIR, MAS ...

ANONYMOUS PRESS RELEASE LETTER TO THE PUBLIC AND THE MEDIA: To the citizens of the world, We are Anonymous. The events currently transpiring in Iraq have made us as a collective re-evaluate our priorities in regards to recent operations. The Iraqi people have gone through almost two weeks of sheer terror most of us will never know nor experience. We are held by a code of honor to protect those who are defenseless, both in the cyber world and the real world. Before our inception, the Iraq War was well underway and crimes against humanity were rampant. The United States had no small part in this. When the United States government decided to begin an unnecessary war with the promise of oil and funds to the military industrial complex, it failed to realize the severity of taking out a leader who controlled a strong internal security force. This led to the power vacuum we witnessed after his capture. Yes, Saddam Hussein was ruthless and violent, but with this war, the US was guilty of the same crimes (i.e. Bla ...
The greatest threat to the United States of America, are ISIS, Islamic Jihadist, Saudi Arabia, & Obama!
Crude oil prices fell to fresh multi-year lows in Asian trade today, with analysts blaming concerns about a supply glut and the effects of weaker demand from Europe and China. US benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for November delivery was down 65 cents at a two-year-low of $85.09 in late-morning trade and Brent crude retreated 74 cents to $88.15, its lowest since mid-2010. Both contracts are down about a fifth from their 2014 highs touched in June. Brent crude fell to just above $88 a barrel on Tuesday in a well-supplied market as expectations faded that OPEC could cut output and shore up prices. The global oil benchmark has declined more than 20 per cent from the 2014 high in June as supplies rose and demand slowed in the United States, Europe and China. Investors expecting a production cut from OPEC to support prices were disappointed as Saudi Arabia and Kuwait played down the possibility of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries reducing the output. OPEC, which produces about 40 pe ...
Wake Up Kiwi The Corporate US Government Are The Terrorists - The Islamic State Is A Big Lie September 27 2014 | From: Global Research Under the auspices of the United Nations Security Council, with President Obama chairing the Council session, the United States has called upon the International Community to adopt strong measures, at national and international levels, to curtail the recruitment of Islamic State fighters. What is not mentioned in the media reports is that the heads of State and heads of government who have endorsed America’s campaign against the Islamic State, advised by their respective secret services, are fully aware that US intelligence is the unspoken architect of the Islamic State, which is part of a vast network of US supported “jihadist” terrorist entities. Countries are either coerced into supporting the US sponsored resolution or they are complicit in the US terror agenda. Lest we forget, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, have been financing and training the ISIL terrorists on behalf of ...
to many sources, Turkey has played a pivotal role in the present crisis, perhaps more than Saudi Arabia or Qatar. Consider the comments made by Vice President Joe Biden in an exchange with students at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Institute of Politics at Harvard University last week. Biden was asked: “In retrospect do you believe the United States should have acted earlier in Syria, and if not why is now the right moment?” Here’s part of what he said: “…my constant cry was that our biggest problem is our allies – our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. The Turks were great friends – and I have the greatest relationship with Erdogan, which I just spent a lot of time with – the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad except that ...
The SITE behind those beheading videos -- Or: Lovely Rita looks a little like a military man The latest beheading video, like the ones before, comes to us by way of the SITE intelligence group. There is much to say about this group and its founder, Rita Katz. I won't be able to say it all here. Of Katz, let us begin with her insistence that she is not anti-Muslim, simply anti-terrorism. Of course, we are all anti-terror. Some of us are even concerned enough to note the fact that ISIS was funded by allies of the United States -- Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey -- undoubtedly with US knowledge and probably at US behest. (That link goes to an interview with a personal friend of beheading victim James Foley.) Strangely, Rita Katz -- despite her fierce determination to root out terrorists -- has never, to my knowledge, made public mention of this origin story. What, then, of the beheading videos? They are the main reason for the turnaround in public opinion on the question of intervention in Syria and Iraq. The ...
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 ...
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said the concerns about Khorasan were behind a decision last summer to ban uncharged laptop computers and cellphones from some United States- bound commercial airliners. The air campaign against Khorasan and the Islamic State got underway even as Mr. Obama flew to New York to meet with World Leaders gathering at the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly. Mr. Obama did not seek United Nations permission for the military campaign, but he presented the strikes as the collaboration of a multiNational Coalition that included five Arab nations: Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain. “Because of the almost unprecedented effort of this coalition, I think we now have an opportunity to send a very clear message that the world is united,” Mr. Obama said during a hastily arranged photo opportunity in New York with Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi of Iraq, King Abdullah II of Jordan and representatives of the other Arab allies. Still, t ...

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 ...
"Since 2001, the United States and its allies have been on a rampage. In Iraq, at least 700,000 men, woman and children are dead as a result. The rise of jihadists – in a country where there was none – is the result. Known as al-Qaeda and now the Islamic State, modern jihadism was invented by US and Britain, assisted by Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. The original aim was to use and develop an Islamic fundamentalism that had barely existed in much of the Arab world in order to undermine pan-Arab movements and secular governments. By the 1980s, this had become a weapon to destroy the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. The CIA called it Operation Cyclone; and a cyclone it turned out to be, with its unleashed fury blowing back in the faces of its creators. The attacks of 9/11 and in London in July, 2005 were the result of this blowback, as were the recent, gruesome murders of the American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff. For more than a year, the Obama Administration armed the killers of these two young ...
My Post of yesterday criticizing funding of militant groups has drawn interesting comments from friends in Pakistan regarding the close military cooperation of Saudi Arabia both with Pakistan and the United States. It is a positive situation that is useful for all three countries concerned. Having enjoyed the hospitality of Saudi military in Riyadh numerous times, I could not possibly be critical of that. Pakistani military has its hands full with the devastating floods in the country and the never ending political noise in the streets.The country has celebrated Defense Day on September 6, Air Day on September 7, and the Navy Day on September 8. All three services deserve congratulations. Nowhere was the celebration more rousing and uplifting than in Riyadh (see the attached photo) where the Saudi military leadership and the military officers of all the friendly countries were well represented. Pakistan Military and its affiliated organizations are the largest employers of Pakistan. They are also becoming ...

We are powerless onlookers, as we witness how the Western Nations, led by the United States, accuse Russia of crimes they commit themselves more than anybody else. We reject the double standards that are used for Russia and the West. In our societies, sufficient evidence is required for a conviction. The way you and your Nation are convicted for 'crimes' without evidence, is ruthless and despicable. You have saved us from a conflict in Syria that could have escalated into a World War. The mass killing of innocent Syrian civilians through gassing by ‘Al-­‐Qaeda’ terrorists, trained and armed by the US and paid for by Saudi Arabia, was blamed on Assad. In doing so, the West hoped public opinion would turn against Assad, paving the way for an attack on Syria. Not long after this, Western fo ...

It Isn't Their Twenty-First Century, Mr. President! by Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison August 28, 2014 President Obama’s reaction to the brutal televised murder of American journalist Jim Foley was heartfelt, to be sure, but it missed the mark. The president deplored such barbarous acts and called them out of place in “the Twenty-First Century.” That begs the question: Whose Twenty-First Century? President Obama promised Hope and Change in 2009. He started off with his first foreign summit, in London, early that year. He actually bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. That was certainly change. No president of the United States had ever bowed to anyone before. When John F. Kennedy met with the newly elevated Pope Paul VI in the Vatican in 1963, our first Catholic President made a point of not kneeling to the Pontiff. So great was JFK’s respect for the history and traditions of the U.S. presidency that he spoke respectfully to the Pope, but remembered his own role. In King Abdullah's Kingdom, peopl ...
THE ZIONIST NEO-CON ENGINEERED DESTRUCTION AND POLITICAL FRAGMENTATION OF IRAQ. THE US ACTS AS USUAL AS THE ROTHSCHILD ZIONIST-SOCKPUPPET IT IS AND CONTINUES TOWARDS THE CREATION OF A US SPONSORED ISLAMIST CALIPHATE THE Islamic State OF IRAQ AND AL-SHAM: AN INSTRUMENT OF THE ANGLO-ZIONIST WESTERN MILITARY ALLIANCE Rothschild’s boy, President Barack Obama has initiated a series of US bombing raids in Iraq allegedly directed towards the rebel army of the Islamic State (IS). The Islamic State terrorists are portrayed as an enemy of America and the Western world. Amply documented, the Islamic State is a creation of Western intelligence, supported by the CIA and Israel’s Mossad and financed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. We are dealing with a diabolical military agenda whereby the United States is targeting a rebel army which is directly funded by the US and its allies. The incursion into Iraq of the Islamic State rebels in late June was part of a carefully planned intelligence operation. The rebels of the Isl ...

From April to as late as Oct. 18 1973, King Faisal of Saudi Arabia had been insistently warning Washington to temper its bias towards Israel. Now he acted. Riyadh announced at 9 p.m. local time on Oct. 20 that it was imposing a total oil boycott against the United States, its closest Western friend. The Saudi action had a domino effect. Abu Dhabi, Algeria, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar quickly followed suit, violently disrupting international commerce. The boycott was lifted on March 18, 1974, leaving economies around the world shattered and many individuals living poorer lives, Henry Kissinger (Former US secretary of state and German born Jewish refugee) admitted: "I made a mistake. It increased our unemployment and contributed to the deepest recession we have had in the post World War II period. Skeptics might wonder whether it was a mistake, or wanton disregard of U.S. interests during a passionate effort to help Israel...
Danger As OPEC Predicts Less Demand For Nigeria’s Crude Oil In 2015 Published on July 11, 2014 By Greenbarge Reporters Nigeria may face economic ‘Tsunami’ from next year when demand for its crude oil, which represents over 80 percent of its national income, is predicted by Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to decline by about 300,000 barrels per day (bpd). OPEC predicted similar decline in demand for crude oil from the other 11 member oil-cartel by the same quantum of bpd. The prediction is predicated against the backdrop of surging supply from non-OPEC producers, particularly the United States (US). The US was said to have overtaken Saudi Arabia and Russia to become the world’s biggest producer of oil as extraction of energy from shale rock strengthens the nation’s economy, Bank of America Corporation said in a report last week. With efforts towards lifting the almost 40-year-old ban on crude oil exports in the US gaining attraction, Nigeria and other oil-exporting West Afric ...
on Monday evening, Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal also published a column in that paper, in which he asserted that the “Arab Peace Initiative still provides a template for peace.” He called on the Israeli people and their leaders to accept it, to turn the entire region into a blooming garden of cooperation and brotherhood, instead of being a place of wars and hatred. Having served as his country’s intelligence chief, Turki also served as the Saudi Ambassador to some European countries and as the ambassador to the United States, the most prestigious position fathomable in Saudi Arabia. He is said to be the axis linking Saudis and Israelis, having fostered secret ties with his Israeli counterparts over many years. Read more:

Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb demolished all temples in Mathura, said to number 1,000. During their reign, Muslim rulers destroy roughly 60,000 Hindu temples throughout India, constructing mosques on 3,000 sites. In the seven centuries of Muslim rule in India, they did not build one great school or hospital. All they did was to build palaces and gardens for their enjoyment, tombs to perpetuate their memory and forts for their security . There is no other country in the world from east to west, faces the agony that the Hindus in India have faced. There is no country in the world has been so ravaged and raped by outside forces as India has been down the centuries: Not Japan, not China, not Russia, none of the European countries, neither the Arab nations and certainly not the United States of America.

the Lie! America IS at War with Islam. President Obama stated, while speaking in Cairo on June 4, 2009, “The United States is not, and never will be, at war with Islam.” Since then he has made this same statement on numerous occasions. This is totally inaccurate. In truth, America is being lulled into a deep sleep as a result of our Islamic ignorance. The State Department has put out an international warning for all United States citizens traveling abroad to be very cautionary in their travel arrangements through the end of August. U. S. Embassies are closing in many Middle Eastern countries from Algeria to Bangladesh. In true to form Islamic based terrorism, no one knows what is going to happen, nor do we know when or where. This is the worst form of terrorism, the unknown plan of attack. Based on our so called “intelligence gathering,” we are in the midst of a major threat from a Yemen based Al-Qaeda stronghold located just east of Saudi Arabia. Interestingly, according to our current admini ...
The World Health Organisation (WHO) says an upsurge in cases of the MERS virus has receded. But it warns that countries must stay vigilant during the Muslim pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia, the country worst hit by the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome. In a statement, the WHO says there is as yet no of sustained human-to-human transmission in communities. The statement was issued after a teleconference of health officials from seven countries where there have been cases of MERS. They are Algeria, Iran, Jordan, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the United States. MERS has killed 284 people in Saudi Arabia since it first emerged in April 2012. Hundreds more have been infected. Twenty-two countries have reported cases. 938live/jy
Bashar Al Assad has been reelected as the president of Syria for an additional seven years, in an election that is not considered to be legitimate. Since the election, Iranian authorities have been boasting about their role in keeping Assad in power and keeping their vow. This bragging comes at a time when the Obama Administration is eagerly pushing for a final and comprehensive nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic in Geneva, which would urge the United Nations Security Council to remove all economic and political sanctions against Iran. POLL: Do House Conservatives Have Enough Evidence to Impeach Obama? Iran is already receiving billions of dollars from the United States for signing the interim nuclear deal. Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, the military adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, triumphantly and openly expressed his sense of victory by stating on the government-run Press TV, “The strategy of the US Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and European countries to overthrow Basha ...
The story confirmed the origins of ex-Yugoslav weapons seen in growing numbers in rebel hands in online videos, as described last month by The Daily Telegraph and other newspapers, but suggests far bigger quantities than previously suspected. The shipments were allegedly paid for by Saudi Arabia at the bidding of the United States, with assistance on supplying the weapons organised through Turkey and Jordan, Syria’s neighbours. But the report added that as well as from Croatia, weapons came “from several other European countries including Britain”, without specifying if they were British-supplied or British-procured arms. British military advisers however are known to be operating in countries bordering Syria alongside French and Americans, offering training to rebel leaders and former Syrian army officers. The Americans are also believed to be providing training on securing chemical weapons sites inside Syria. Additionally, The New York Times in its article, “Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, ...
Saudi Arabia stamps feet at lack of US backing on Syria, Israel Members of the Saudi Arabian Royal Family are threatening to rethink the strategic partnership with the US following America’s reluctance to back up Riyadh’s plans for Iran and Syria. Washington is putting on a brave face, praising relations as normal. Two influential members of the Royal House of Saud have spoken out on irregularities in the relations with country’s major partner, the United States, reports Reuters. Renowned Saudi foreign relations hawk and chief of intelligence Prince Bandar bin Sultan, while conducting a series of meetings with European diplomats, has accused Washington of failing to lend a hand in ousting Syrian President Bashar Assad, insufficient assistance in settling the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, flirting with the new Iranian President and not supporting Saudi intervention in Bahrain to crush an anti-government revolt in 2011, according to Reuters. “Prince Bandar told diplomats that he plans to limit inter ...
Bis Milla Hir Rahma Nir Raheem BOSTON: In an unprecedented, three-year cyber espionage campaign, Iranian hackers created false social networking accounts and a fake news website to spy on military and political leaders in the United States, Israel and other countries, a cyber intelligence firm said on Thursday. ISight Partners, which uncovered the operation, said the hackers' targets include a four-star US Navy admiral, US lawmakers and ambassadors, members of the US-Israeli lobby, and personnel from Britain, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Governments Await Obama’s Move on Carbon to Gauge U.S. Climate Efforts WASHINGTON — President Obama is expected to announce on Monday an Environmental Protection Agency regulation to cut carbon pollution from the nation’s fleet of 600 coal-fired power plants, in a speech that government analysts in Beijing, Brussels and beyond will scrutinize to determine how serious the president is about fighting global warming. The regulation will be Mr. Obama’s most forceful effort to reverse 20 years of relative inaction on climate change by the United States, which has stood as the greatest obstacle to international efforts to slow the rise of heat-trapping gases from burning coal and oil that scientists say cause warming.

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome CORONAVIRUS (MERS-COV) The Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV),[1] also termed EMC/2012 (HCoV-EMC/2012), is positive-sense, single-stranded RNA novel species of the genus Betacoronavirus. First called novel coronavirus 2012 or simply novel coronavirus, it was first reported in 2012 after genome sequencing of a virus isolated from sputum samples from patients who fell ill in a 2012 outbreak of a new flu. As of 14 May 2014, MERS-CoV cases have been reported in several countries, including Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Jordan, Qatar, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Tunisia, Kuwait, Oman, the Philippines, Indonesia (none was confirmed), the United Kingdom, and the United States.[2]

The Netherlands is sending a top diplomat to Saudi Arabia to avert sanctions that Riyadh is reportedly moving to impose on Dutch contracting companies in protest at anti-Islamic stickers printed in the colors of the Saudi flag by a Dutch far-right politician, the foreign ministry said. Saudi media reported this week that Saudi sanctions will also involve the reduction of the number of visas issued to Dutch nationals and a suspension of exchange business trips between the two countries. The Dutch statistics office values the country’s exports to Saudi Arabia at 2 billion euros ($2.7 billion) a year. Geert Wilders, leader of the right-wing Freedom Party, had stickers bearing slogans derogatory to Islam printed in December as part of his campaign material. A prominent far-right Eurosceptic who has attracted supporters as far afield as the United States, his party is leading in national opinion polls before European Parliament elections on Thursday. “The Netherlands cannot be held responsible for the adol ...
Freemasons And Their Hidden Agenda. by ghulam muhammed on Sat Aug 20, 2011 7:19 pm Part I. How The World Has Been Intelligently Controlled? August the 2nd 1990 Saddam Hussain's forces crashed the defenses of oil rich Kuwait in fear of an Iraqi invasion into Saudi Arabia. The United States and her coalition allies poured into the Arabian Peninsula to form a deterrent that would be known as Desert Shield. The result was a series of diplomatic talks, negotiations and count negotiations that rapidly declined into a no hope situation. On August the 17th 1991 the Desert Shield became Desert Storm. The conflict was witnessed by millions through the IF, CNN and the BBC showing propaganda of the systematic eradication of Saddam's forces by a coalition far superior in technological, political and economic power. However what was little known was that from the outset the war was engineered, controlled and manipulated by an elite group. A group which had created the illusion of a man with power at the head of a milli ...
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:
U.S. Offers Gulf Arabs More Military Cooperation against Iran Riyadh, May 15 (Prensa Latina) U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel left for Saudi Arabia on Thursday, after encouraging his Arab counterparts from the Persian Gulf to reinforce military cooperation to counter alleged threats against regional stability from Iran. Hagel, who participated in the first consultative meeting of the Joint Defense Council of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in the city of Jeddah, proposed the ministers of Defense of the regional bloc to take actions to neutralize Iran's alleged capacity to develop nuclear weapons. Using the pretext that Tehran pursues military goals, the U.S. official insisted that both the United States and the six member countries of the GCC (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar) are facing the same security challenges in this part of the world. In statements to reporters before leaving Riyadh, Hagel referred to "commitments to maintain and prohibit Iran from de ...
Complications beset U.S. support to Nigeria. The United States is now using drones and manned surveillance aircraft over Nigeria in the search for the hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram. But signs of them are yet to emerge, and the task is complicated by the possibility that the girls have been separated into groups. The United States, which is supporting the Nigerian government's efforts, will continue to deepen its efforts, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday while traveling to Saudi Arabia. However, "I have seen no intelligence come back that I am aware of that shows that we've located those girls," he said. The assets provide some of the best tools to try to find the girls, but the Nigerian government has shown some reluctance to use U.S. help. For now, the United States is not sharing raw intelligence from its surveillance aircraft with Nigeria's armed forces because the countries have still not established the intelligence-sharing protocols and safeguards needed for an intelli ...

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 ...

First MERS Case Reported in United States Robert Lowes May 02, 2014 The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today announced the first confirmed case of deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in the United States, a development that a CDC official nevertheless called a "low risk to the broader general public." The agency confirmed the MERS coronavirus (CoV) this afternoon in an unidentified healthcare provider who traveled from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, by plane on April 24 to London, United Kingdom, and then to Chicago, Illinois, where the person took a bus to somewhere in Indiana. The traveler began to experience shortness of breath, coughing, fever, and other respiratory symptoms on April 27 and was admitted to an unnamed Indiana hospital the next day.

MERS-CoV was first detected in ...
Navy Unit Commendation- Desert Storm, My Unit. MWSS-271 deployed to Saudi Arabia, in January 1991 in support of Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. The Squadron provided Aviation Ground Support to multiple Marine Air Groups by constructing and operating Forward Arming and Refueling Points at Al Kabrit, Qahar, Khanjar, and Tanijib, Saudi Arabia. On 24 February 1991, MWSS 271 displaced its elements in support of offensive ground combat operations into Kuwait in the midst of heavy combat to establish a Forward Operating Base at Ahmed Al Jaber Air Base and, eventually, Kuwait International Airport, becoming the only MWSS to take part in offensive combat operations in Kuwait during Desert Storm. The last elements of the Squadron returned to the United States on 15 June 1991 and rapidly resumed peace-time operations

Military spending continues to fall in the West but rises everywhere else, says SIPRI " Civil and Military Leaders, Owners of Weapon Industries, close your eyes for a while and think if this $ 1.75 trillions were used against poverty, illitracy, improvement of the lives of each and every human on earth...don't you see A Heaven on Earth ?? KAC Stockholm: World military expenditure totalled $1.75 trillion in 2013, a fall of 1.9 per cent in real terms since 2012, according to figures released today by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). The fall in the global total comes from decreases in Western countries, led by the United States, and despite increases in all other regions. In fact, military spending in the rest of the world excluding the USA increased by 1.8 per cent. The next three highest spenders—China, Russia and Saudi Arabia—all made substantial increases, with Saudi Arabia leapfrogging the United Kingdom, Japan and France to become the world’s fourth largest military spen ...
This Day in Military History, April 28th, 1993 – While congress had repealed a law that excluded women from combat in 1991, it wasn't 'till 1993 that Secretary of Defense Les Aspin issued a directive allowing women to fly fighter aircraft in combat. It only takes the Air Guard three days to bring its first female fighter pilot on board when Major Jackie Parker transfers from the Regular Air Force to New York’s 138th Fighter Squadron on May 1st. Maj. Marie Therese Cayton was a United States Army officer, best known for being the first woman in American Military History to serve as an Aviation Commander during combat, and the first woman pilot in United States history to fly combat missions, during the Persian Gulf War in 1991. She was killed when the CH-47 Chinook she was piloting crashed in Saudi Arabia, on March 1, 1991. Lt. Col.

Obama’s killing fields in Yemen: The Obama Administration has recently taken part in a joint operation with Yemeni forces that has produced the highest death toll of any confirmed drone strike in Yemen so far this year, according to sources from the Associated Press (AP). Yemen’s state media claims that the victims of the attack were among the most dangerous elements of Al-Qaeda, and that the strike was based on confirmed intelligence that the targeted individuals were planning to target Yemen’s civil and military institutions. Yemeni officials claim that the target site, located in remote mountainous regions in the country’s troubled south, was one of the few examples of permanent infrastructure setup by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) to train fighters and store armaments. The strike allegedly took place with regional cooperation and assistance from Saudi Arabia, and due to official secrecy provisions, the United States does not have a legal obligation to acknowledge or comment on the s ...

_Al Qaeda accuses Saudi rulers of being controlled by US Al Qaeda’s Yemen branch has mocked tough new counter-terrorism measures adopted because of neighboring Saudi Arabia, saying they would not deter the Islamist group’s fighters and that they proved the kingdom was in the pay of the United States, Reuters reports. In the group’s first public response, senior AQAP official Ibrahim al-Rubayash commented on these measures in an audio tape posted online: “Their employers are the White House.” He added that the Saudi leadership seemed to consider the US authorities as “gods.” In an online statement, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) also said Riyadh’s designation of the Muslim Brotherhood – a group whose political wings have contested elections in several countries – as a terrorist organization proved that secular authorities would never tolerate Islamist groups. AQAP is seen as one of the most dangerous branches of al-Qaeda after it conducted attacks on international airliners. I ...
This is absolutely CRAZY!

A high ranking Democrat also said that the Saudi's will probably charge the US roughly 500 million a year to help maintain the lock system.
Amnesty: Executions rise in 2013 By Sophie Brown, CNN (CNN) - Virtual "killing sprees" in Iran and Iraq led to a spike in the number of executions globally last year, according to Amnesty International, at odds with a steady decline in the use of the death penalty around the world over the last two decades. Executions by beheading, electrocution, firing squad, hanging and lethal injection rose by almost 15 percent in 2013 on the previous year, the organization said in its latest report on the death penalty released Thursday. China executed more people than any other country last year. Although Chinese authorities treat official execution statistics as a state secret, Amnesty International estimates thousands are killed under the death penalty every year, more than the rest of the world combined. Excluding China, executions rose to at least 778 last year, up from 682 in 2012. Iran came in second, with at least 369 put to death by the state, followed by Iraq (169), Saudi Arabia (79), and the United States ( ...

Lets remember here the people we are fighting today we funded them twenty years ago and we did it because we were locked in a struggle with the Soviet Union.

Is Obama Administration Encouraging Uighur Terrorists? On March 12, Thai authorities carried out a raid in southern Thailand and captured 200 Uighurs who were smuggled into Thailand from China. Uighurs, who belong to the western Chinese province of Xinjiang, are involved in a secessionist movement using the most violent form of terrorism against the Chinese government. Previously, most terrorist acts were committed in western China by the Uighur terrorists who came in from Pakistan and Central Asia. Uighur terrorists mostly operate from outside, based in Pakistan and in some Central Asian nations. They are promoted and funded by Saudi Arabia, Britain, Pakistan, Turkey, and the United States, among some others. The Uighur terrorism project is primarily to undermine and weaken China's security and prevent China from pursuing its Silk Road project westward. However, the Uighur-related terrorist acts have begun to show up in east and southeast China. This indicates that a new route to infiltrate Uighur terror ...
United States and Britain over the control of Middle Eastern oil. Below is shown what the American President Franklin D. Roosevelt had in mind for to a British Ambassador in 1944:Persian oil ... is yours. We share the oil of Iraq and Kuwait. As for Saudi Arabian oil, it's ours. Our govt has been tied to the House of Saud and Wahhabi muslims since Saudi Arabia and the U.S. establish diplomatic relations, and in 1933 the first foreign oil prospectors arrive in the kingdom. The Americans pay $170,000 in gold for land concessions that turn out to contain the biggest oil fields on earth. Ignoring criticism that inviting foreigners into the kingdom is un-Islamic, and citing precedent in the Quran, King Abd al-Aziz invites U.S oil companies to develop Saudi oil resources.

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 ...
It is lying bad as the media. In Syria , the Civil War rages not no this is not a Civil War is a battle of the army against rebels Al Qaeda terrorists from all countries join this Salafist Islamists terrorists and Al- Qaeda comes from Saudi Arabia, Qatar , it is a scandal. Homs has been cleared of terrorists and the Syrian army to the border with Turkey , it is a great success. After a week, came across the Turkish border again in 1000 terrorists collected on behalf of the United States. Obama was probably of the opinion that Syria just as fast as Libya was falling . Did Obama actually Syria has such a good army . Certainly not . The Syria has such a good and loyal folk President Al -Assad. Whenever Kerry or Obama now comes to Saudi Arabia, a short time after that terrorists come to Syria like to order. It wants no more to say to President Obama because he has the office no more worthy nor the title. The same applies to Kerry. Foreign Minister are for peace in the world there, and not for the office of a ...
John Guondolo, Former FBI agent and counter terrorism expert, also adds that "Mr. Brennan, now head of the CIA, did convert to Islam when he served in an official capacity on behalf of the United States in Saudi Arabia. He has given them access to the National Security Council, The National Security Staff. He has brought known Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood Operatives into those positions of government.” Earlier this year Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) has already claimed that "Muslim Brotherhood members have great influence in President Barack Obama's administration."
www.technologyvista.in: The U.S. branded an ‘enemy of the Internet’ Enemies of the Internet’ is a list published every year by Reporters Without Borders, an organization that campaigns for a free press and an uncensored Internet. This year, the United States has made the list for the first time, alongside countries such as China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Cuba and Iran. The United Kingdom, Russia and India have also been added for the first time in the 2014 list. In its assessment, Reporters Without Borders points to the NSA revelations leaked by Edward Snowden as evidence that “the country of the First Amendment has undermined confidence in the Internet and its own standards of security.” The report goes on to say that “U.S. surveillance practices and decryption activities are a direct threat to investigative journalists, especially those who work with sensitive sources for whom confidentiality is paramount and who are already under pressure.” There’s also mention of the NSA’s secrecy ...
The major powers are locked in a race for influence in Lebanon's presidential elections as Michel Suleiman's six-year term nears its end, As Safir newspaper reported on Tuesday. The daily said that the United States is backing elections to choose a new president and has sent an envoy who has a specific mission to follow up the polls. But the report said that France, which is also expected to send envoys to Beirut, believes the current situation in Lebanon and the region is not encouraging, and that elections could not be held given the difficulty to reach an understanding between the Western countries and regional and local parties on a single candidate. Paris prefers Suleiman's term, which expires in May, be extended, according to As Safir. Its stance is also backed by Saudi Arabia, the daily said. It quoted however a U.S. diplomat as saying that Washington prefers the election of a new president even if he was a personality not allied with it. Among the names making the rounds are Free Patriotic Movemen ...
20 days .During his forthcoming high-profile visit to Saudi Arabia, US President Barack Obama will meet with King Abdullah in Riyadh in less than twenty days, following the US leader’s trip to the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. The president’s trip also includes a nuclear security meeting in The Hague, a summit meeting of the United States and the European Union in Brussels, and a meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Recent events, however, could distract from this trip despite the president’s assurances to Netenyahu on Middle East peace talks and Iranian nuclear diplomacy. And, in what is being viewed as a major crisis for the White House, Washington is rushing to build a coalition to oppose further Russian advances, following the invasion of Russian troops into the Ukrainian region of Crimea. The two leaders are expected to discuss their countries’ bilateral relations and a number of key security issues in the Gulf. The president is expected to seek to reassure King Abdullah of American su ...

I am amazed at the naivety of the American news presenters and political commentators when they assume President Putin, a 62-year old lawyer and ex-KGB agent, immensely influential and in control of more gas and oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, who recently renegotiated a $2 billion military arms contract with Egypt, who truly believes in Russia as a pivotal global influence, will pay any heed to a wavering and unconvincing President Obama! The United States has undoubtedly the most advanced military in the world, but without a focused leader it will have to stand by and watch as Russia takes back the Crimean peninsula. Just like Georgia. America, you are too busy buying guns for self protection and letting your teenagers sue their own parents... The truth is the stock market is more powerful that Mr Obama, and Mr Putin does NOT care about international law! Vladimir Putin lives in a completely different world.
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
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 ...
'S Arabia ditches Prince Bandar from Syria case over US' Reports say the Al Saud regime has relieved its spymaster, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, of his duties in spearheading the kingdom's mission in the Syria crisis. According to recent reports, Saudi Arabia has assigned Interior Minister Prince Mohammed bin Nayef to lead Riyadh’s anti-Damascus policies instead of the kingdom’s veteran spy chief, Prince Bandar, who has been a staunch supporter of Takfiri militants operating against Syria. Diplomatic sources say Washington had demanded the removal of Prince Bandar from the Syrian file because of his mismanagement of the situation in the country, which has been grappling with a foreign-backed crisis since March 2011. On February 19, the Washington Post also reported that the Saudi interior minister had recently represented Saudi Arabia at a conclave of Western and Arab spymasters in the United States, where he held talks with US National Security Adviser Susan Rice over the policies in Syria. Reports also ...
Speaking at an exclusive interview with Al-Alam in Damascus Shaaban said, the United States is struggling to make an exit for itself from the chaos it has been leading in Syria which not only targeted Syria, but was also aimed at "changing the image of the region". "Since three years ago and start of the extensive war on Syria, we saw that international criteria have changed; that’s why I think the result of this war is going to show which axis is more powerful and will stay in the region... The result will as well determine characteristics of the regional balance," she said. She then referred to changes undergone in the war Syria has been dealing with, saying that, "at the beginning, it was Qatar which led the war and unfortunately made the Arab League to accompany it, but later the keys to the war on Syria were given to Saudi Arabia". "If we set aside recent agenda in which Saudi Arabia and US are getting closer over Syria, we can say that Qatar, Turkey and then Saudi Arabia were playing as US and Wes ...

Sentinel Mark IIn the alternate timeline version of the '70s, Bolivar Trask received the government greenlight to begin producing anti-mutant security forces in the form of these towering robots known as Sentinels. The image depicts the Mark I variant and over the years there are other, larger versions. We've yet to see the massive Mark X Sentinels from the post-apocalyptic future. The first Sentinels (Mark I model) released in 1973. A year later the government allowed them to be deployed in highly populated cities and to serve as part of the President’s security attache (beginning with Nixon). Between 1973 and 1996, Trask produced 8732 Sentinel Mark Is for the governments of the United States, China, Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, France, India and the United Kingdom. Production on the Mark I has shifted to the new Mark X: “These highly anticipated units will combine next-generation nanotechnology and bioweapon breakthroughs, promising an even brighter future for the human race.”

By George Friedman The Afghan War is the longest war in U.S. history. It began in 1980 and continues to rage. It began under Democrats but has been fought under both Republican and Democratic administrations, making it truly a bipartisan war. The conflict is an odd obsession of U.S. Foreign Policy, one that never goes away and never seems to end. As the resignation of Gen. Stanley McChrystal reminds us, the Afghan War is now in its fourth phase. The Afghan War's First Three Phases The first phase of the Afghan War began with the Soviet invasion in December 1979, when the United States, along with Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, organized and sustained Afghan resistance to the Soviets. This resistance was built around mujahideen, fighters motivated by Islam. Washington's purpose had little to do with Afghanistan and everything to do with U.S.-Soviet competition. The United States wanted to block the Soviets from using Afghanistan as a base for further expansion and wanted to bog the Soviets down in a debilitati ...
Operation Desert Storm President Bush In the 1988 election, George Bush and his running mate. Dan Quayle, won 54% of the popular vote and 426 of the 538 electoral votes, soundly beating Democrat Michael Dukakis. The first major foreign crisis for the United States after the end of the Cold War presented itself in August 1990. Saddam Hussein, the dictator of Iraq, ordered his army across the border into tiny Kuwait. This was no ordinary act of aggression. Iraq's army was well equipped. The United States had provided massive military aid to Iraq during their eight-year war with Iran, giving them the fourth largest army in the world. Kuwait was a major supplier of oil to the United States. The Iraqi takeover posed an immediate threat to neighboring Saudi Arabia, another major exporter of oil. If Saudi Arabia fell to Saddam, Iraq would control one-fifth of the world's oil supply. All eyes were on the White House, waiting for a response. President Bush, who succeeded President Reagan, stated simply: "This will ...
On this day in 1991, President George Herbert Walker Bush waits to see if Iraq will withdraw from Kuwait by midnight, a deadline mandated by the United Nations, or if war will ensue. Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and hard-line Iraqi nationalists did believe Kuwait should be part of Iraq, but acquiring control of Kuwait's oil fields was Hussein's primary interest. Control of Kuwait also represented a strategic military objective should Iraq be forced into a war with its western-friendly Arab neighbors. Hussein calculated, incorrectly, that the United States and the United Nations, who were closely tracking the military buildup along Kuwait's borders, would not try to stop him. When Iraqi ground forces entered Kuwait on August 2, 1990, President Bush immediately proclaimed that the invasion would not stand and vowed to help Saudi Arabia and Kuwait in their efforts to force the Iraqis from Kuwaiti land. To that end, Bush authorized an increase in U.S. troops and resources in the Persian Gulf in the following ...
Report: NSA Maps Pathway Into Computers Associated Press (01/14/14) The National Security Agency (NSA) infected nearly 100,000 computers, all outside the United States, with software that allowed it to perform surveillance on those machines, according to a Jan. 14 report in the New York Times. The report, which is based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, indicates that the software installed by the NSA uses radio waves to allow the agency to access those machines and obtain data from them. The software has reportedly been used to monitor computers belonging to Chinese army units, the Russian military, European Union trade institutions, and U.S. counterterrorism partners such as Saudi Arabia, India, and Pakistan. In response to the reports, NSA spokesperson Vanee Vines said the agency's "activities are focused and specifically deployed against — and only against — valid foreign intelligence targets in response to intelligence requirements." She also added that NSA does not use ...
More Countries Considered for Global Entry: CBP announced in August that it would be expanding Global Entry to a number of additional countries. The program recently became fully operational with South Korea. CBP is currently working with the governments of Germany, Qatar, and the U.K. to expand the program; it is also working to initiate additional pilot programs with Saudi Arabia, Panama, India, and Israel. Global Entry permits frequent visitors from a country to be pre-screened and vetted, which expedites their admission upon arrival to the United States.

The Global Alliance for the Rights of Ethiopians in Saudi Arabia has donated USD 30,000 to support IOM’s ongoing post-arrival assistance to Ethiopian migrants returning from Saudi Arabia. The new funding will allow IOM in Ethiopia to continue to provide vital medical assistance, meals, transportation, and provide a cash allowance to destitute migrants returning home empty-handed. Washington DC-based members of Alliance, which is made up of the Ethiopian diaspora in the United States, Canada, and Europe, gave the funds to IOM’s US-based partner, the US Association for International Migration (USAIM). The Alliance hopes to send a message to the Ethiopian diaspora worldwide, encouraging the Ethiopian community to support Ethiopian nationals returning from Saudi Arabia. Accepting the contribution, IOM Washington Chief of Mission Luca Dall’Oglio said: “Every donation we receive, no matter the dollar amount, helps to ease the funding gap. I want to thank the Global Alliance and the Ethiopian community f ...
Meet the Sierra Leonean with Five Phds Thursday 20 June 2013. By Alhaji M.B. Jalloh, Saudi Arabia. In April 2011, I was in the United States on a brief visit. During the visit, I spent one week in the Washington Metropolitan Area – shuttling between Virginia, Maryland and D.C. In D.C, I tried to interview a Sierra Leonean Professor believed to be one of the most educated men in the world – the assignment was given to me by an International News Magazine. Dr. Abdul Karim Bangura (photo) lectures at Howard University, Washington D.C and he holds 5 PhDs. But his schedule was so tight that I couldn’t have one-on-one interview with him at that time. A few days ago, I booked an appointment with him on the telephone for an interview. The erudite Doctor finally granted it to me last night; whilst on his way to Lagos- Nigeria where he was invited by the Department of Sociology of the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Lagos in collaboration with the Centre for Black and African Arts and Civilization ( ...
Saudi Arabia Facing a Plethora of Fundamental Challenges " WELL IT'S UPTO THE RULERS OF Saudi ArabiA TO ENGAGE AND LISTEN THE SAUDI MASSES OTHERWISE...!!!KAC The deterioration of Saudi Arabia's political influence has contributed to a growing sense of national decline. King Abdullah's reform efforts have lost steam. An essay by Tarek Osman In the early 1970's, Saudi Arabia's King Faisal reportedly confided to senior members of the Royal Family his fear that, just as in a single generation the country had moved from "riding camels to riding Cadillacs… the next generation could be riding camels again." His warning seems more apt than ever. Saudi Arabia, long one of the Arab world's most rigid societies, now finds itself in a state of flux. Its relations with the West – and with the United States in particular – have frayed in the turmoil unleashed in the Middle East and North Africa by the Arab Spring. Meanwhile, a group of women provided the latest sign of domestic restiveness by defying the Kingdom' ...
Arabia admits defeat in anti - plot: Analyst Saudi Arabia has conceded defeat in its attempt to overthrow the government of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, an analyst tells Press TV. “Saudi Arabia – or Fraudi Arabi, as some people call it - they have fallen on their sword. They were given a period of time to try to get rid of this government in Syria. They were given the support,” Randy Short said in an interview on Sunday. He said Saudi Arabia “is in the dark house because they cannot handle their own domestic situation,” adding, “They have got a mess in Bahrain and all the other places that they fund people doing these things. And it has just made a mess.” The analyst stated that the failure of Saudi “maniacal Wahhabis” in politics has forced the United States and Britain – both close allies of Riyadh, to “distance themselves from the extreme elements of Saudi Foreign Policy.” However, Short said, Saudi Arabia, US and UK will remain “in bed together. They may not want to ha ...
The embarrassment of that fake interpreter supposedly signing Obama’s speech in South Africa the other day reminded me of that cold December night in 1977 when we arrived with Jimmy Carter in Warsaw, Poland. At the time, Poland’s masses were still fiercely huddled behind the Iron Curtain. At the arrival ceremony at the airport Carter was scheduled to say a few carefully chosen words during a short stopover on our way to Iran, India and Saudi Arabia. But instead, what happened was simultaneously politically offensive and hilarious. The State Department had hired Steven Seymore for $150 dollars to provide the public address/broadcast translation of Carter’s remarks. What the Poles heard Carter say via Seymore’s butchered translation included, “Are you from Poland? I want to sleep with you. I want to learn about your desires for the future. I desire for the Poles. This morning when I left the United States never to return.” Needless to say Seymore’s use of words suggesting Jimmy Carter was inte ...
Is Islam Actually Taking Over the World? Before we even have had an opportunity to digest everything that has happened since 1990 all of a sudden we are also facing the outbreak of a rapidly growing movement known as Chrislam, which has already made inroads into some of the Episcopalian and Presbyterian Christian churches across the United States. Chrislam, if your not familiar with it, is a new brand of teaching which seeks to merge Christianity and Islam into one faith based on their common ground. The concept being that both faiths originate from the same root which is Abraham. In addition to that, we are also witnessing high profile Muslim leaders taking charge of globalist institutions. For instance El Hassan bin Talal, brother of the King of Jordan was the president of the Club of Rome (a "Globalist Think Tank") for a decade from 1997 until 2007. Additionally, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is the present head of the “Interfaith Center” in Vienna known as the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Internati ...

WILL AMERICAN TROOPS NOW BE IN AFGHANISTAN UNTIL 2024? BY BI-LATERAL DEFENCE AGREEMENTS SIGNED WITH KARZAI (OF UNOCAL)? Hamid Karzai Early career After obtaining his Master's degree in India, he moved to neighboring Pakistan to work as a fundraiser for the anti-communist mujahideen during the 1980s Soviet war in Afghanistan.[8] The Mujahideen were backed by the United States, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Iran, and Karzai was a contractor for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) at the time.[9] While Karzai remained in Pakistan during the Soviet intervention,[10] his siblings emigrated to the United States.[8] Following the withdrawal of Soviet forces, Hamid Karzai returned to Afghanistan in early October 1988 to assist in the Mujahideen victory in Tarinkot. He assisted in rallying Popalzai and other Durrani tribes to oust the regime from the city as well as helped negotiate the defection of five hundred of Najibullah's forces.[11] Karzai with U.S. Special Forces during Operation Enduring Freedom in Oc ...
China plan to quit dollar infuriates US: Analyst China is dropping the US dollar for other currencies. Sun Dec 1, 2013 4:54PM GMT 0 Related Interviews: ‘US crisis far deeper than debt ceiling’ ‘Saudi Arabia fears domestic revolt’ Related Viewpoints: Real reason behind US-China tensions The decision by the Central Bank of China to no longer accumulate foreign exchange reserves in dollar has infuriated the United States, an analyst says. Finian Cunningham made the remark in a Sunday column for Press TV amid escalation of tensions between US and China over Beijing's enforcement of an Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). “The escalation of military tensions between Washington and Beijing in the East China Sea is superficially over China’s unilateral declaration of an air defense zone. But the real reason for Washington’s ire is the recent Chinese announcement that it is planning to reduce its holdings of the US dollar,” he wrote. Cunningham said China “move to offload some of its 3.5 tril ...

“Iran’s Nuclear Triumph” roared the headline of the Wall Street Journal editorial. William Kristol is again quoting Churchill on Munich. Since the news broke Saturday night that Iran had agreed to a six-month freeze on its nuclear programme, we are back in the Sudetenland again. Why? For not only was this modest deal agreed to by the United States, but also by our NATO allies Germany, Britain and France. Russia and China are fine with it. Iran’s rivals, Turkey and Egypt, are calling it a good deal. Saudi Arabia says it “could be a first step toward a comprehensive solution for Iran’s nuclear programme.” Qatar calls it “an important step toward safeguarding peace and stability in the region.” Bahrain, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates have issued similar statements. Israeli President Shimon Peres calls the deal satisfactory. Former Military Intelligence Chief Amos Yadlin has remarked of the hysteria in some Israeli circles, “From the reactions this morning, I might have thought Iran h ...
Here is Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz (hardly a conservative): the Obama Administration was naive and had possibly made a "cataclysmic error of gigantic proportions" in its deal to ease sanctions on Iran in exchange for an opening up of the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. Dershowitz said he thought the administration of President Barack Obama did a poor job of negotiating the deal. "I think it's thoughtful and intelligent Americans vs. naive Americans," he said. The deal, announced late Saturday night in the United States, makes it more likely Iran will develop a nuclear bomb, likely creating the need for a future military strike by Israel or the United States, Dershowitz said. It also increases the possibility of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East with Saudi Arabia obtaining nuclear weapons as well, he said.

Saudi Arabia and Israel could rally against Iran despite the United States - my interview with Walter Russell Mead -
Headlines U.S. World Business Markets Technology Sports Entertainment Health Science Politics Nuclear talks begin, Iran warns of limits By GEORGE JAHN and JOHN HEILPRIN Associated Press GENEVA (AP) -- A new round of Iran nuclear talks began in fits and starts Wednesday, with the two sides ending a first session just minutes after it began amid warnings from Iran's supreme leader of `'red lines" beyond which his country will not compromise. Still, both sides indicated a first-step agreement was possible on a deal to roll back Iran's nuclear program in exchange for limited sanctions relief, despite strong opposition from Israel and unease in both Congress and among Iranian hard-liners. President Barack Obama appears determined to reach such an agreement, which could be a major step toward reconciliation between the United States and a former ally that turned adversary after the Islamic Revolution of 1979.

Three Eritrean officers defect to Saudi Arabia-website DUBAI Tue Nov 12, 2013 10:22am EST Three Eritrean military officers have asked for political asylum in Saudi Arabia after Saudi air force jets forced their aircraft to land in the southern part of the kingdom, the local news website Sabq reported on Tuesday. Sabq quoted Yassin bin Ahmed al-Qassem, a spokesman for the Jazan Emirate, as saying that F-15 planes were deployed when the Eritrean aircraft entered Saudi airspace without permission. "The aircraft forced to land in the King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz airport was carrying three Eritrean officers seeking political asylum," Sabq quoted Yassin as saying. The Eritraen aircraft were military but used to carry equipment and not fighters, Yassin added. Eritrea, which split from Ethiopia in 1991, is one of Africa's most secretive states and dissent is dealt with harshly. Located on the opposite side of the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia, it has long been at odds with the United States and is accused of human right ...

John Kerry on being asked whether women in Saudi Arabia should be allowed to drive - “[I]t’s no secret that in the United States of America we embrace equality for everybody, regardless of gender, race, or any other qualification... But it’s up to Saudi Arabia to make its own decisions about its own social structure. … There’s a healthy debate in Saudi Arabia about this issue, but I think that debate is best left to Saudi Arabia.” By God the man sounds like Nelson Mandela...maybe?
I don't think I can agree with Darth Vader *** Chaney), John Mccain and Lindsey Graham that the Obama Administration's Foreign Policy is pissing off the Arab Royalty in Saudi Arabia and we (the United States) should not do that. I could rant about it incoherently, but Fareed Zakaria put (what I think about it) the situation in words far, far better than I in his "Time" magazine article(linked below). Zakaria is saying basically that we should not care what the Saudi Arab Royalty thinks and if Obama's policies concerning Iran and Syria *** them off, then tough. Get over it. We know you aren't really our friends anyway. Fareed reminds us that of all the countries in the world, Saudi Arabia is responsible for supporting and dispensing the most extreme form of militant revolutionary Islam in the world. Our Sunni Muslim enemies that killed our heroes in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan have Saudi support. So why are we supposed to be judged as doing something wrong when our enemy's supporters and most ir .. ...

Kissinger: USA needs the whole world, not just Syria * Has the storm around Syria subsided? If so, why has the United States until recently insisted on the inclusion in the text of the UN resolution on chemical weapons of a provision on the possibility of using the army? Earlier in Valdai Russian President Vladimir Putin mentioned that he asked the Americans (likely Barack Obama) what the U.S. wanted to achieve in Syria and did not get a clear answer. Meanwhile, the clarity could be introduced by Henry Kissinger, a patriarch and informal designer of the American Foreign Policy over the last forty years. His very interesting speech made two years ago escaped the attention of the world media and analysts. What did Kissinger who, until recently, headed the list of the hundred leading intellectuals of the world talk about in late 2011? He talked about a war which, in his opinion, was inevitable. The politician recommended ordinary people to move to the countryside and build a farm, and not forget to arm, as h ...

this movie is just WOW! Baraka (1992) is a purely cinematic visual film directed by Ron Fricke and cinematographer for Koyaanisqatsi. The title Baraka is a word that means blessing in many different languages. The film includes footage of various landscapes, churches, ruins, religious ceremonies, and cities thrumming with life, filmed using time-lapse photography in order to capture the great pulse of humanity as it flocks and swarms in daily activity. Baraka searches for a universal cultural perspective: for instance, following a shot of an elaborate tattoo on a bathing Japanese yakuza mobster with one of Native Australian tribal paint. The movie was filmed at 152 locations of 24 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, China, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Kuwait, Nepal, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States. It contains no dialogue. Instead of a story or plot, the film uses themes to present new perspec ...
Egypt’s Military: Doing What Germany’s Should Have Done in 1933By Robert ReillyAugust 16, 2013 0 Comments2.2K Thirty million people in the streets of Egypt, with the help of the Egyptian military, have saved the United States from the consequences of its disastrous policy of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood since President Barack Obama came to office. Just months after his inauguration in 2009, Mr. Obama appeared in Cairo to address the Muslim world. He ensured that members of the Muslim Brotherhood were seated in the front row of the auditorium at Cairo University. Since the group was still officially banned in Egypt, no one from President Hosni Mubarak’s administration could attend. The message from the seating arrangement was unmistakable: even at the price of snubbing his official host, Mr. Obama recognized the Muslim Brotherhood as a legitimate player in Egyptian politics. Already, this was clearly interference in the internal affairs of the Egyptian state. Former British Ambassador Charles ...
Analysis: Obama's aversion to Mideast conflicts fuels backlash from allies By Matt Spetalnick WASHINGTON (Reuters) - From Saudi Arabia to Israel, traditional U.S. allies in the Middle East are beginning to ask: Is America turning its back on us? President Barack Obama's diplomatic overtures to old foe Iran and his last-minute refusal to attack Syria have officials in Israel, the Gulf countries and Turkey wondering if Washington is deliberately neglecting them to avoid being dragged into a Middle East facing deeper sectarian strife and concerns that Tehran may be seeking a nuclear bomb. Media reports that the U.S. National Security Agency may have spied on the leaders of Germany, Mexico and Brazil have upset those longtime allies too, adding to the impression in some quarters that Obama has his foreign priorities backward. But it is in the Middle East where Obama's policy is under harsher scrutiny, especially from Saudi Arabia, which fears a warming of relations between the United States and Riyadh's regio ...
Late Night Jokes from Newsmax.com The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Conan Jimmy Kimmel Live! Late Night With Jimmy Fallon The Tonight Show With Jay Leno People have been speculating lately about what President Obama will do when he leaves office in 2016. The one thing I think we can safely rule out — website designer. Some marketing experts are comparing the Obamacare website rollout to a Ford Edsel filled with New Coke. But they are making progress. They said today that if you find yourself getting too frustrated trying to log on, they’ve added a link to a suicide hot line. What the president should do is put the NSA in charge of the website. That way there’s nothing to fill out. They already have all our information. You just put your name in. Saudi Arabia is now threatening to sever diplomatic ties with the United States over Syria. I hope that doesn't cause them to do something drastic, you know, like overcharge us for oil. Conan German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the U.S. would have to regain he ...
The life of Ahmad Shah Massoud was full of war fighting for democracy and tolerance. The first part of his adult life was fighting the soviet invasion of Afghanistan, having the ability to unite people and see through numerous victories. Some refer to him as the Afghan who won the Cold War. the second part was fighting the Taliban, protecting women rights and the hope for democracy, tolerance, and unity. Taliban and Al Quida hated him, as he was able to defeat them in battles and survived and thwart many many assassination attempts. Many victories even though at that time Taliban had numerous funds from Saudi Arabia and foreign fighters. The world ignored him though. Also seeing to the building up of democratic institutions. He was upright, and well read. He even warned the United States about an attack Al Quida was planning, but like his fight his warnings where also ignored. "Afghans want to regain their right to self-determination through a democratic or traditional mechanism acceptable to our people. ...

I am so tired of Obamacare. What else is going on? Oh, remember the current administration's plan to restore the respect of the world for the United States after George Bush totally trashed it? Well, today Angela Merkel called our President and gave him a tongue lashing for spying on her cell phone. The French did something similar last week. It wasn't much more than a month ago that the Brits flipped us off too. And, Saudi Arabia is cutting ties with the US thanks to the administration's kissing up to Iran. They and Egypt (once the Muslim Brotherhood was ousted, Obama cut aid to Egypt) have headed straight to Moscow for support. I feel all better now. Even though Obamacare is a disaster, at least we're respected around the world. At least in Teheran, we're still cool.
Saudi Arabia is publicly criticizing the United States for not attacking Syria in defense of the rebels. Okay, fair but may I point out that I don't recall Saudi Arabian forces responding either. Saudi has an army, navy and air force. So, why not?
The Carlyle Group C for capitalism The secretive Carlyle Group gives capitalism a bad name. But dismantling the whole system (see article) may be slightly over the top Jun 26th 2003 ON the day Osama Bin Laden's men attacked America, Shafiq Bin Laden, described as an estranged brother of the terrorist, was at an investment conference in Washington, DC, along with two people who are close to President George Bush: his father, the first President Bush, and James Baker, the former secretary of state who masterminded the legal campaign that secured Dubya's move to the White House. The conference was hosted by the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm that manages billions of dollars, including, at the time, some Bin Laden family wealth. It also employs Messrs Bush and Baker. In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, when no one was being allowed in or out of the United States, many members of the Bin Laden family in America were spirited home to Saudi Arabia. The revival of defence spending that followed great ...
Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE:TM) announced Thursday that it is recalling about 885,000 sedans worldwide from model years 2012 and 2013 on account of potential problems with air conditioning condensers. According to Reuters, the recall affects Camry, Avalon, and Venza sedans — the total number breaks down to 44,000 in Canada, 10,600 in Mexico, 9,100 in Saudi Arabia, and the rest in 15 different countries. About 803,000 of the vehicles were sold in the United States. The issue with air conditioning condensers has led to two minor injuries and no accidents, but Toyota reported that the water from the air conditioning condenser can leak onto the airbag control module and cause the airbag to inflate and deploy at the wrong time. The problem can also affect power steering. Toyota on Thursday maintained that it will directly notify owners in the weeks ahead, and dealers were instructed to make repairs at no charge.
Notable Tours/Concert Performances Yusuf’s tours and concert performances throughout the past eight years have been extensive.

Saudi Arabia rejects seat on UN Security Council In yet another stunning repudiation of Obama on the world stage, Saudi Arabia refused a seat on the UNSC. Add this to the laundry list of epic failures of Obama's Foreign Policy. The Saudi discontent stems from its frustration with longtime ally United States. The two are at odds over a number of Mideast issues, including how Washington has handled some of the region’s crises, particularly in Egypt and Syria. It also comes as ties between the US and Iran, the Saudi’s regional foe, appear to be improving following a recent telephone conversation between President Barack Obama and Iran’s new president, Hassan Rouhani. Who can forget Obama's campaign promise of refurbishing America's image across the world, and how determined he was to establish good relationships with foreign governments. Instead, he has made an enemy of almost every good ally the US has. Media coverage on this aspect of his failed presidency remains non-existent. Don't get me wrong, I ...
Who woulda thunk? I always thought that "Trick or Treat" meant give me candy or give me a trick! Not true at all... History of Halloween Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows' Evening also known as Hallowe'en or All Hallows' Eve. Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, bonfires, costume parties, visiting "haunted houses" and carving jack-o-lanterns. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century including Ireland, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom as well as of Australia and New Zealand. "TRICK OR TREAT?" THE "TRICK" PART OF "TRICK OR TREAT" IS A THREAT TO PLAY A TRICK ON THE HOMEOWNER OR HIS PROPERTY IF NO TREAT IS GIVEN. Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"). The festival of Samhain is a celebration .. ...
David Dewhurst, running for lieutenant governor of Texas, said earlier this week that President Obama should be impeached. Upon reflection, I suspect he might be right. Just look at the things he has done since taking over the presidency: 1. Turned the United States into the 2d largest oil/gas producing nation in the world, passing Saudi Arabia and leaving us behind only Russia. 2. Eliminated Osama Bin Laden 3. Toppled Moammar Gaddafi 4. Ended the Iraq War 5. Passed the Affordable Health Care Act 6. Passed Wall Street reform 7. Began troop drawdown in Afghanistan 8. Passed the Stimulus package to get us out of the biggest recession since the Great Depression 9. Turned around the US auto industry. 10. Increased benefits to veterans by adding 16 percent to the Department of Veterans Affairs budget in 2010 and added another 10 percent in 2012 and added $78 billion in tuition assistance for veterans. WHAT DOES THIS MAN THINK HE IS DOING??? HE IS RUINING AMERICA
While funding dispute in Washington remains unsettled, the emerging World Leaders look upon the United States with genuine worry on what was happening on Capitol Hill and in the White House, including Washington’s most important economic partners, Saudi Arabia, and China on international recovery unless the United States raise its debt ceiling and reopen its government to rejoin the common world to play by the same rules.
Assalamun Alaikum Brothers And Sisters Of Islam - Did You Know That Many Muslims in the United States celebrate Eid al-Adha with prayers and social gatherings. The Eid al-Adha services can attract thousands of Muslims in various places such as Chicago (Illinois) and Orlando (Florida). Many Muslims of many heritages, including West Africans, North Africa, Pakistan, Eastern Europe, wear traditional clothes and share their national dishes. It is a time for prayer, sharing meals, handing out gifts and wishing one another well. Eid al-Adha follows from the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, in which Muslims are required to make at least once in their lives. Eid al-Adha is also known as the Feast of Sacrifice because it traditionally includes the sacrifice of an animal permitted for food (eg. a lamb) as an act of thanksgiving for God’s mercy. Some Muslims seek out a farm where they can carry out the sacrifice, but many also send money to their native lands to help fund a sacrifice. Eid al-Adha lasts fo ...
HEADLINES FROM AROUND THE WORLD Middle East An Egyptian court on Wednesday set a trial date for ousted President Mohamed Morsy for Nov. 4, while the United States announced plans to suspend part of its annual military aid to Egypt.

SAMSON OPTION Israel has always held the Samson option, their ability to unleash nuclear war against Iran, even against the European Union or United States, as a keystone of their defense policy. Israel’s air defense network, known as the Iron Dome, has proven to under-perform and requires AEGIS based US naval support to be credible. Russian air defense systems are capable of defeating any possible Israeli nuclear threat and, in the process, leave Israel open to devastating conventional attack. Israel, given AIPAC’s “warmongering,” has been seen by many as orchestrating, not just the “Civil War” in Syria, but the false-flag gas attacks as well. Some pundits excuse Israel entirely, blaming Saudi Arabia. However, as Saudi Arabia has no operational intelligence or clandestine capabilities in Turkey, Georgia or Iraq, this hypothesis not only fails but rings of “seeded” false intelligence. Yet, considering Israel’s precarious position, something new for the masters of “game theory warfare, ...
1998 United States embassy bombings The 1998 United States embassy bombings were a series of attacks that occurred on August 7, 1998, in which hundreds of people were killed in simultaneous truck bomb explosions at the United States embassies in the East African cities of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. The date of the bombings marked the eighth anniversary of the arrival of American forces in Saudi Arabia. The attacks were linked to local members of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, brought Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, and their terrorist organization Al Qaeda, to the attention of the American public for the first time, and resulted in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) placing Bin Laden on its Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. The FBI also connected the attack to Azerbaijan, as 60 calls via satellite phone were placed by Bin Laden to associates in Baku regarding the strike. Fazul Abdullah Mohammed was credited for being the mastermind behind the bombings. A Nissan Atlas truck, simi ...
The United States provides economic, military and diplomatic support to four of the nine least free nations on earth. Freedom House, a Washington, DC-based think tank that conducts research on democracy, freedom and Human Rights, has released its annual report on the state of freedom around the world. The report, “Freedom in the World 2013,” gave seven nations the lowest possible rankings for both political rights and civil liberties. Of these seven– North Korea, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Sudan, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea and Saudi Arabia, the United States provides significant economic, military and/or diplomatic support to the governments of four of them. The Obama Administration aids and enables brutal repression in each country.

Time for Détente With Iran by the Editors Rarely in the past half-century has diplomacy so transformed international relations that it promised an end to deep, seemingly intractable conflicts. Our world was fundamentally changed for the better by Nixon’s opening to China in 1972 and Reagan’s embrace of Gorbachev in 1986. The decision by Iran to reach out to the United States and break more than thirty years of hostility offers an opportunity that is equally significant. It could defuse many of the conflicts now tearing apart the Middle East. The historic phone call between President Obama and President Rouhani, together with the meeting between Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, has set the stage for new negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. Tehran, which has made it clear that it seeks the lifting of economic sanctions against the country, will lay out its road map in Geneva. The Obama Administration must move with similar diplomatic ambition. It should ig ...
INSIGHT-Saudi Arabia boosts Salafist rivals to Al Qaeda in Syria: Alarmed by the rise of Al Qaeda in Syria, Saudi Arabia is trying to strengthen rival Islamists with ties to Riyadh and this week helped engineer a consolidation of rebel groups around Damascus under a Saudi-backed leader. That might bolster the opposition militarily as President Bashar al-Assad's forces have been pushing back, but it also underlines Al Qaeda's expansion in Syria - and the proliferation of splits among Assad's enemies, just as world powers are trying to corral them into talks with his government. Rebel and diplomatic sources said it was Saudi Arabia which nudged rebel brigades operating in and around Damascus to announce this week that they have united under a single command comprising 50 groups and numbering some thousands of fighters. The formation of the Army of Islam in the capital's eastern fringe under Zahran Alloush, leader of the group Liwa al-Islam, strengthens Salafist jihadis owing allegiance to Riyadh against the ...

This possible blossoming of the SCO is an interesting story. It seems to be based on stability, noninterference and economic development/trade. If Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India are brought in as full members, the organization would be a welcome counter to the R2P and neocon crowds in the West, though, this is a nightmare to the Likudniks in Israel and the Salafists in Saudi Arabia... But, The one and only way to help Afghanistan immediately is through strengthening and facilitation of her external trade through Iran... The second way would be the inauguration of the North-South Transport Corridor which would enable India to sell her stuff in Central Asia and elsewhere. Both of these will be actively opposed by the United States, the European Union, and Saudi Arabia.

Obama: War Criminal and Hypocrite Irish MP calls for her country to adopt responsible politics and stand up to violations of international law and hypocrisy ** Irish MP Clare Daly rightfully calling Obama a War Criminal under international law and a hypocrite. The Obama regime has pursued aggressive military policies, increased use of drone strikes, systematically violated civil rights and privacy within the United States and internationally, and aggressively persecuted courageous state employees and government officials who notify civilians and media of state violation of rights and abuse of authority. While there are positive things which have been done by the Obama Presidency - and the Bush (Junior) Presidency, the Clinton Presidency, the Bush (Senior) Presidency and others - these do not 'counter-balance' or legitimise violations of Human Rights, international law, or the laws of war. In many countries around the world - the US, China, Syria, Brazil, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere - governments/st ...

Soon after he returned a video clip of the trip was circulated to tv and Social Media in hope that it can be seen that Governor Danbaba Suntai was indeed recuperating, followed by Press Statements that the ailing Governor was soon to be homebound for Nigeria to resume his work. Acting Governor Garba U ...
AGRICULTURE & LIVELIHOOD TIPS: 44 Ginger-- Medicine From The Farm (Editor's note: This article was lifted from Agriculture Business Week in an effort to inspire Harasan residents and other readers to engage in livelihood projects to help uplift family income.) Definitely, there’s more to this gnarled, bumpy root crop than the popular and traditional salabat health drink. Everything good is found in ginger,” so goes a popular Indian proverb. It’s no wonder why India is the world’s top producer of ginger, reports the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Other main producers are China, Indonesia, Nigeria, the Philippines and Thailand. According to FAO, Japan is the number one importer of ginger, with 104,379 tons in 2000 alone. Other major importing countries are United States, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Malaysia, Korea, the Netherlands, Canada, Germany, and France. Perhaps not too many Filipinos who plant ginger in their farms or gardens are aware that the gnarled, bumpy root is ...
Six Sioux Tribes are banding together to develop the largest wind power production facility in the United States. The Midwest has been called “the Saudi Arabia of wind power,” and the northern Great Plains has enough wind resources to meet the entire energy demand of the United States several times over. Six South Dakota Sioux Tribes – the Cheyenne River, Crow Creek, Oglala, Rosebud, Sisseton Wahpeton, and Yankton Tribes – have decided to pool their considerable wind power resources to create the largest utility-grade wind installation in the country – a Project funded by $1.75-3 Billion in bonds issued through a multi-Tribal power authority. This Project completely changes the model for developing wind power in the U.S. Previously, large wind projects were funded by private equity – this means that it is expensive money (equity investors require double-digit returns), and it means that the project is owned by the investors. But this Project will use bond financing – bond rates are at histor ...
Chapter 9 *** s Ayatollah Never did a revolution catch the United States more by surprise than did the one that swamped Iran in 1978-79. For a moment, it seemed as if the entire U.S. position in the Middle East might crumble, that Saudi Arabia and the Gulf would fall to a revolution like that in Iran, that no Arab monarchy—from Jordan to Morocco—was safe. Panicky U.S. officials ordered the CIA to determine if Iran's Islamic Revolution might spread, and the U.S. government hired a steady stream of experts on Islam to provide insights and predictions. National security experts worried that the line of defense along the Soviet Union's southern flank had been breached and that the USSR would take advantage of the collapse of Iran to swoop into the region and supplant the United States. For the first time, political Islam moved to center stage, and the consequences would be profound. In Iran, in Afghanistan, in Pakistan, in widening, concentric circles, the Islamic right was no longer a marginal force b ...
The Taliban The third Islamist eruption to confront U.S. policy makers was the meteoric rise of the Taliban in war-shattered Afghanistan. The most incisive account of the founding, growth and victory of the Taliban is Ahmed Rashid's Taliban: Militant Islam, Oil, and Fundamentalism in Central Asia. A veteran Pakistani reporter, Rashid spent years covering Afghanistan and Pakistan's ISI. According to Rashid, from the start the Taliban had strong support not only from Saudi Arabia, which financed it, and from Pakistan, whose ISI intelligence service was the primary force behind the Taliban's conquest of warlord dominated Afghanistan, but from the United States as well. "Between 1994 and 1996, the U.S.A. supported the Taliban politically through its allies Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, essentially because Washington viewed the Taliban as anti-Iranian, anti-Shia, and pro-Western," he wrote. "Between 1995 and 1997 U.S. support was even more driven because of its backing for the Unocal project [for an energy pipeli ...
Which country is most actively throwing its weight around in Syria and Egypt? It's not the United States (population: 316 million) or Iran, Saudi Arabia, or even Russia. Rather, it's the small Persian Gulf state of Qatar (population: 2 million). In Syria, Qatar is showering money and arms on anti-As...
Anti-GMO Quack: And- as a final note, by claiming its a cry wolf scenario- it's beyond insulting. There are 60 countries world wide with restrictions on GMO's in one form or another, including Italy, Austria, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal, Greece, Spain, UK, Australia, Norway, New Zealand, Thailand, Phlippines, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Brazil, Paraguay, and GASP- Even Switzerland, the GM science capital of the world. Me: I fail to see why anti-GMO proponents believe that this is somehow a valid point of contention. Legislative bodies in democratically elected governments do not decide what is or isn't scientifically valid. Scientists do. Creationism would be taught in public schools here in the United States if it didn't violate the First Amendment. You don't get to legislate the truth, and when the vast majority of practicing scientists within this field, all of whom are going off of the same substantiated data, state that GMOs aren't harmful - then the onus shifts to the person who says the ...

With Nigeria as the CAF representatives in this year’s FIFA Confederations Cup, a critical look at the history of the tournament and how African teams have fared in the continental showdown. 1992 The now FIFA Confederations Cup was previously known as the King Fahd Cup, which originated in 1992 in Saudi Arabia with just four teams. Ivory Coast flew the African flag in the first installment of the tournament, but were trounced 4-0 by Argentina and then 5-2 by the United States in the 3rd/4th play-off. 1995 Three years later, and for the final edition under the name King Fahd Cup, Saudi Arabia again hosted the tournament, which now included six teams – one from each confederation. Nigeria represented Africa at the event, finishing runners up in their group behind holders Argentina. This gave them a 3rd/4th play-off encounter against CONCACAF winners Mexico and, after a 1-1 draw, the Super Eagles succumbed 5-4 on penalties. 1997 FIFA took over the organization of the tournament in 1997 and hosted it ever ...
Syria’s Fake Sectarian War, Triggered by Washington The fate of Syria and the broader Middle East balances on a razor’s edge. The western media is giving dire warnings of an impending sectarian war between Sunni and Shia Muslims, a war that could drown the Middle East in a flood of blood. Such a war would be completely artificial, and is being manufactured for geo-political reasons. When the most influential Sunni figures in Saudi Arabia and Qatar — both U.S. allies — recently called for Jihad against the Syrian government and Hezbollah, their obvious intentions were to boost the Foreign Policy of Saudi Arabia and its closest ally, the United States, by destroying Iran’s key ally in the region.Will Sunni Muslims in Syria — who are the majority — suddenly begin attacking their Shia countrymen and the Syrian government? Unlikely. A compilation of data from humanitarian workers in and around Syria compiled by NATO suggests that: “…70 percent of Syrians support the Assad regime. Another 20 . ...
How times fly, I left Singapore on 28th Sept 2012, I felt like the end of the world; leaving my family and friends to be in a foreign land, working with strangers. I have travelled around; been to Belgium, Germany, England, United States, France, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, China. I have seen Mecca, the Suez Canal, the statue of Liberty, the memorial to Titanic. But I would rather see my home than to see all these sights of other countries. The first thing I do when I go home is to visit my grandmother's grave and ask her for forgiveness.
Contact us | Login ViewsWire :: Risk Briefing :: Latest risk analysis Saudi Arabia risk: Alert - The next property bubble? June 5th 2013 Printer version The Saudi economy continues to power ahead, supported by a hugely expansionary fiscal stance and continued loose monetary policy. Meanwhile, despite fast-rising retail sales, surging wages, and a programme to replace expatriate workers with (more expensive) locals, inflation has remained subdued, averaging just 4% in 2012. However, fears are growing that the combination of rapid liquidity growth and a paucity of avenues to invest could result in the creation of asset bubbles, with the present boom in office construction arguably the most likely source. The rash of building in the capital, Riyadh, and elsewhere is changing the appearance of the kingdom dramatically. The most striking example of this will be the kilometre-high, mixed-use Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, a project led by the Saudi billionaire Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal that began construction earl . ...
