Update 18june2013: Iran is challenging the sincerity of the West towards peace by announcing her readiness to stop at least 20% of uranium enrichment program…
The itch to go to war with Syria and Iran continue to worsen.
One wonders why would a government which is experiencing an economic meltdown since 2008 still pretends it can meddle other people’s affair. It doesn’t have the moral foundation, nor a deep pocket to do so.

The US is debating setting up a no-fly zone across Syria and along Jordan’s border: a matter deemed difficult and costly but still being given serious consideration after disputed claims that nerve gas was used by the Syrian government.
“Washington is considering a no-fly zone to help Assad’s opponents,” one senior diplomat told Reuters. He said it would be limited “time-wise and area-wise,” adding that it could be implemented “possibly near the Jordanian border.”
A White House spokesperson stated on Friday that it would be expensive, and not their preferred choice. “We feel like the best course of action is to try to strengthen a moderate opposition,” Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes told a news briefing.
Even a limited zone could cost the US at much as $50 million per day, according to the WSJ. A full-scale operation would be considerably more expensive. The Pentagon has hopes that US foreign partners will help in footing the bill, if necessary.
That’s the conventional mindset trying to make the most out of the mainstream reality it belongs to.
We already knew that that’s not the whole intention, i.e. the Western powers are not trying to rescue the Syrians from its corrupt government. That the interim intention is to transform Syria into another Libya or Iraq, i.e. to plunder these sovereign economies for its own corporate survival.
And from there it’s the “sky is the limit” with Iran.
Or so, they believe.
The use of chemical weapons by Damascus and Hezbollah involvement in Syria risks derailing a political settlement to the conflict, John Kerry warned. His comments follow reports the CIA is preparing to funnel arms to rebel forces via Jordan and Turkey.
The US State Department issued a statement on Saturday condemning the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad for its lack of commitment to a negotiated settlement after Secretary of State John Kerry spoke with his Iraqi counterpart the previous day.
“The secretary reaffirmed that the United States continues to work aggressively for a political solution with the goal of a second Geneva meeting, but that the use of chemical weapons and increasing involvement of Hezbollah demonstrates the regime’s lack of commitment to negotiations and threatens to put a political settlement out of reach,” the department said.
The Coalition of the Idiots is still alive
The Muslim Brotherhood is said to be organized by the CIA. Morsi’s latest position re Syria will only confirm this view.
Yes, the Egyptian Revolution had been hijacked early on. This method is so effective, it’s been used countless of times, including here in my country when we revolt against the Marcoses in 1986 for military abuses, e.g. forced disappearance.
That is the very reason why we strongly advocate for self-empowerment over begging for governmental reforms.
It will never come, no matter how many times you and your friends march on the streets, and no matter how many lifetimes you’re going to spend on this planet.

Egypt has decided to cut all ties with Syria, close the embassy in Cairo and withdraw the Egyptian envoy from Damascus, said Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. He also urged the international powers to impose a no-fly zone over Syria.
“We have decided to close down the Syrian embassy in Cairo,” said Morsi during a conference of Sunni Muslim clerics in support of the Syrian uprising at Cairo Indoor Stadium, according to local newspaper Ahram online. “The Egyptian envoy in Damascus will also be withdrawn.”
The decision comes into effect Saturday.
Now we are pretty sure this guy is not on our side.
But this one does.
Russia and UK still have very different approaches to the Syrian crisis,British PM Cameron said after meeting Putin adding that the decision to arm rebels is yet to be made.Russia’s President warned against such a move citing rebels’ atrocities.
“The blood is on the hands of both parties” of the conflict, not only Bashar Assad’s government but also the rebels, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin stressed at the press conference at 10 Downing Street.
“I think you will not deny that one does not really need to support the people who not only kill their enemies, but open up their bodies, eat their intestines, in front of the public and cameras,” Putin said referring to a video footage on the Internet of a rebel fighter eating the heart of a government soldier. Later however it was concluded the fighter was holding a lung.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has insisted there is no sense in the Syrian regime using chemical weapons against the rebels, an accusation thrown at the leadership by the international community.
“The government, as the opposition is saying openly, is enjoying military success on the ground,” Lavrov indicated to reporters during a joint press conference with his Italian counterpart Emma Bonino.
“The regime isn’t driven to the wall. What sense is there for the regime to use chemical arms – especially in such small amounts?” Lavrov asked adding that the data provided by the US showed that 100 to 150 people suffered from the alleged chemical attacks.
Iran will deploy 4,000 Revolutionary Guards to Syria to bolster Damascus against a mostly Sunni-led insurgency, media reported. Meanwhile, US F-16s and Patriots will stay in Jordan – speculatively, to help establish a no-fly zone to aid Syrian rebels.
The deployment of the first several-thousand strong military contingent was reported by The Independent on Sunday who quoted Iranian sources tied to the state’s security apparatus. The sources said the move signals Iran’s intention to drastically step up its efforts to preserve the government of President Bashar Assad.
The Islamic Republic’s heightened military commitment could reportedly extend to the opening up of a new “Syrian” front on the Golan Heights against Israel.
Golan Heights have recently become a source of new instability with increasing cross-border fire and Austria withdrawing its peacekeepers from the buffer area after a checking point became the spot of military dispute between and Assad’s and opposition’s forces.
So while the Corporate Cabalists are busy feeding the flames of war, the Reformists are making a better world with just how much they can afford.
The Chavez Legacy
When progressive mindset works, it always defies convention. Such is the case with Venezuela, when at the time of Hugo Chavez implemented a program to “eliminate homelessness at all costs” by 2019.
Since its conception, Mission Housing Venezuela in 2011 was able to build 480 homes everyday, or roughly three homes per minute.
To date, they have exceeded their yearly target.
In the build-up to George Osborne’s spending review there have been loud demands for more investment to meet Britain’s shortage of affordable homes. Some countries do things differently: Venezuela has a programme to build an astonishing three million homes using public funds by 2019.
Last month marked the second anniversary of Venezuela’s great housing mission, started by the late Hugo Chavez, to tackle the country’s massive housing deficit. The mission was to start by building 350,000 houses in 2011 and 2012 combined – a target exceeded by nearly 25,000 – at a cost of $22bn (£14.3bn) so far. From now on the annual targets are much tougher – over 300,000a year.
Venezuela’s situation is very different from the UK’s. Its population is half that of the UK’s and national income per head is one third. Nearly half of government income is from oil revenues, which have been boosted by recent higher oil prices. The new government headed by Nicolas Maduro, elected by a wafer-thin majority in April, faces high inflation and food shortages.
In contrast, countries under tight Corporate Rule have been subjected to harsh legislated austerity measures. The Corporatists even have the gall to slice 30% off of the Cypriot bank deposits.
But when it’s time for PR, they know how to play their cards well…

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has admitted that it made serious mistakes in the handling of the sovereign debt crisis in Greece.
In an internal report published on Wednesday, the IMF said there were “notable failures” in preparing the first Greek rescue that forced a second larger bailout, AFP reported.
The Washington-based organization said it underestimated the damage that fiscal austerity would do to the Greek economy in its earliest rescue of the nation in 2010.
Greece was granted a 110-billion-euro (145-billion-dollar) bailout by the so-called troika of IMF, European Commission (EC) and the European Central Bank (ECB) in May 2010.
But, would this admission make any difference to the day-to-day struggle of the Greeks?
Obviously, it wouldn’t.
The reign of the Corporatists should be curtailed
Their exclusive claim to advances in Science and Technology, and global development in general, which are being used to justify their continued existence is nothing but a shallow usurpation of the efforts of the progressive minds , e.g. Nikola Tesla, Viktor Schauberger.
We don’t need these monstrous parasites then. We don’t need them now.

“You know, if we understand one question rightly, all questions are answered. But we don’t know how to ask the right question. To ask the right question demands a great deal of intelligence and sensitivity. Here is a question, a fundamental question: is life a torture?
It is, as it is; and man has lived in this torture centuries upon centuries, from ancient history to the present day, in agony, in despair, in sorrow; and he doesn’t find a way out of it. Therefore he invents gods, churches, all the rituals, and all that nonsense, or he escapes in different ways.
What we are trying to do, during all these discussions and talks here, is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind, not accept things as they are, nor revolt against them. Revolt doesn’t answer a thing. You must understand it, go into it, examine it, give your heart and your mind, with everything that you have, to find out a way of living differently.
That depends on you, and not on someone else, because in this there is no teacher, no pupil; there is no leader; there is no guru; there is no Master, no Savior. You yourself are the teacher and the pupil; you are the Master; you are the guru; you are the leader; you are everything. And to understand is to transform what is.
I think that will be enough, won’t it?”
One of the significant sources of funds for the Cabal is the healthcare industry which registered a whopping $2.7 trillion in 2011, and is projected to soar to $3.6 trillion in 2016, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.
You can join the fight against the Dark Cabal and accelerate its demise just by boycotting Big Pharma. You can effectively do this by downloading “Towards Healthcare Emancipation“, a fully illustrated do-it-yourself instructional eBook that will help you in implementing all eClinik methods that would negate the use of expensive medicine, avoid radioactive diagnostics and treatments in completely defeating cancer, AIDS and all other parasitic diseases. These methods, when faithfully followed, work 100% all the time. Find out more about this here.
