Libyan Scenario for Syria

This September the British Times published an article saying the largest shipload of arms destined for Free Syrian Army came to Turkey from Libya… It is far from being the only arms shipment sent to anti-government Syrian gangs in recent months… According to Franklin Lamb, Foreign Policy Journal, at least 24 states are involved in supplying weapons to the insurgents. Two thirds of them are NATO members…

Myanmar: New Geopolitical Status

…The US started its efforts to create an anti-China military alliance during the Obama’s first term. Aptly instigating the neighbors apprehensions related to rapid economic rise of Chinese giant, Washington is pursuing the goal to cut China off necessary resources and potential allies. According to these plans, Myanmar is becoming an arena for a “big game” played to gain geopolitical influence in South-East Asia…

American democracy: what lies behind the facade?

…Americans only need to wait for the declaration of martial law on the pretext of another terrorist attack or natural disaster, as the legislative framework of the authoritarian state in the U.S. is fully prepared. The establishment of martial law would be by the Federal Agency of the United States for Emergency Management (FEMA), whose program to respond to emergencies has long been in place and is known as the Readiness Exercise 1984 (REX-84). We can also mention «Operation Garden Plot» – a program of the U.S. Army and the National Guard under the control of U.S. Northern Command (Northcom), to assist the security forces during internal strife…

Obama’s Reset Facing Resets

…The policy of democratic interventionism and support for radical Islam are hallmarks of Obama's approach to international relations. Owing to it, over the past couple of years the politicized Islam was empowered to an unprecedented extent, with radical Muslim groups either enthroned or wrestling for control in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya, and Syria. Suspicion sneaks in that inducing the dynamics was the secret agenda behind Obama's celebrated reset…

Romney’s Foreign-Policy Advisors a War-Minded Crew

…It is objective reality that unexpected and deplorable developments – hostilities erupting here and there or smashing terrorist attacks – benefit Romney. This was the case, for example, with the obscurely sourced Innocence of Islam – coincidentally, neocon quarterback W. Kristol called in a paper published last May in The Washington Post for a war against politicized Islam, in which the front was supposed to stretch from Pakistan to Tunisia. Kristol, in particular, let out a stream of invective against Egypt and Turkey, asserting that Islamist regimes should be removed. A crusade against Islam must be brewing…

Bioterrorism and the New World Order (II)

Information surfaces increasingly often that the US Army is retraining servicemen to operate domestically. The Internet writings by soldiers returning from Iraq leave no doubt that, while in the country, they exercised to launch cleaning raids and firearm seizures in the US. The Army servicemen have reportedly been offered tests intended to gauge their readiness to shoot, under specific circumstances, their countrymen, including friends and family members… It is widely held that the August, 1995 Hurricane Katrina presented FEMA with an opportunity to practice relocating masses of the population to camps and establishing military rule in a particular region with the hands of private security contractors. The notorious Blackwater played a big role in the game. It seems that the only issue unclear so far is at what time and under what pretext a decision in favor of the repressive turn is going to be made…

Bioterrorism and the New World Order (I)

An outbreak of an obscure and fast-spreading decease – a pulmonary syndrome caused by hantavirus – was reported in the US Yosemite National Park. No specific cure for hantavirus being on record up to date, three people are already dead and around 8,000 guests are thought to be at risk of having contracted it during their stays in the park's tent cabins in June-August. According to USA Today and other sources, the threat actually hangs over 22,000 tourists including 2,500 foreign nationals from 40 countries, who visited the Yosemite National Park last summer… The US health authorities estimate lethality due to hantavirus at 36%, which is considerably higher than the 2-3% for Spanish flue in the early XX century and marginally comparable to the 30-60% for plague absent any medical treatment…

Arafat’s Last Shot

Yasser Arafat died in November, 2004, and memories of the veteran Palestinian leader seemed to have irreversibly receded from public discourse since the time. Nevertheless, it became known recently that the death case had been reopened in France… It may be that the global elites think that the time has come to dump the costly Project Israel and turn to the dynamic and economically self-sufficient Project Qatar centered around a dwarf country whose leaders are eager to be the Anglo-Saxons' allies in the Middle East. There can be a major war in the Middle East at the bottom line, the plot involving Israel and Arafat being the spark ahead of the blast…

Prospects Dim for Turkish-Israeli Relations

If, as Washington might be planning, the Syrian regime collapses before the November presidential elections in the US, one of the consequences will be that the already strained relations between Turkey and Israel would sink to an even lower point. To grasp the connection, consider Leviathan, a constellation of hydrocarbon deposits in East Mediterranean discovered in late 2010 by America's Noble Energy…

London Olympics Jeopardized?

The chilling Rockefeller Foundation report published in May 2010 has added anxiety concerning the prospects of the Olympics-2012. According to its predictions the terror acts would take place during the event. The document called «The Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development» says on page 34 that: «The years 2010 to 2020 were dubbed «the doom decade» for good reason: the 2012 Olympic bombing, which killed 13000, followed closely by the earthquake in Indonesia killing 40000, a tsunami that almost wiped out Nicaragua, and the onset of the Wet China Famine caused by a once-in-a-milleneum drought linked to climate change». Taking into consideration the forecast ascribed to David Rockefeller the document states: «All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order».
