Russian female punk rock band decry lack of freedoms as trial verdict due Reuters

Expect to see more stories like this as the US and Russia become more engaged in the near future. So far Russia has stayed relatively quiet regarding the US’s escapades in middle east, but I predict that will change in the coming weeks/months as the hostilities in the Middle East are accelerated.

Rumsfeld: Israel needn’t notify US about strike

US Defense Secretary Photo: AFPIt seems the rhetoric is once again ramping up to escalate the tensions between Iran and the West. Rumsfeld is reappearing in the media again preparing us for a first strike on Iran by Israel.

In an interview with Fox News, the former US Defense Secretary said “the prime minister of Israel, Netanyahu, is probably correct.Sanctions tend not to work very well over a long period of time.”

Of course sanctions don’t work. I can’t think of a time when sanctions haven’t led to war. Sanctions are nothing more than an economic blockade which itself is an act of war. It is nothing more than a song and dance for the rest of the world, a diplomatic theater, if you will.

“I don’t think that Israel has to destroy all of Iran’s nuclear capability […]All the Israelis need to do is delay them,” the Republican official said, clarifying that Israel “wouldn’t need to destroy Iran’s facilities 100 percent, like they were able to do in Iraq or in Syria.”

Mr. Rumsfeld, can you point out to me which nuclear WMD sites were destroyed in Iraq? I was under the impression that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction. Rumsfeld went on to say that Israel shouldn’t notify us of any intent regarding Iran. This is ridiculous in my opinion. Here are his words:

“If I were in the Israeli government, I don’t think I would notify the United States government of any intent to do anything about Iran. So my guess is, given the pattern of leaks out of the White House, that any prime minister of Israel would not call the United States and give clear intentions as to what they plan to do.”

I think Israel should notify us of any impending attack on Iran. We constantly send money to Israel, even though our own economy is suffering and our infrastructure is crumbling around us. If Israel expects military support (you know they will, they don’t like to get their hands dirty), they should at a minimum notify us when our troops will be in harm’s way!

After all of the support we provide Israel, they need to act as if they are a vassal state to the U.S. and not the other way around!


Syria Terrorists Preparing A Chemical Weapons False Flag?

Syria Terrorists Preparing A Chemical Weapons False Flag?

Many Syrians and outside observers alike, fear that militants may deploy chemical weapons in one or more locations around Syria, creating a mass-casualty event to subsequently be blamed on the government by a coordinated Western media disinformation campaign. The so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) has already been conducting strings of devastating, indiscriminate mass-casualty bombings across the country, as reported by Reuters’, “Outgunned Syria rebels make shift to bombs.”

Is this “chemical” attack the opening kickoff? After all, this is just sport, or a game to those in the bowels of power in the Western world.
