Netanyahu, Barak refuse to see US official with negative report on Baghdad talks.(Debka).The rupture between the US and Israel over Iran’s nuclear program widened further Friday, May 25 when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak decided not to be available to hear the briefing brought to Jerusalem from Baghdad by Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman who headed the US delegation to the Six Power talks. The report she delivered to National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror and Foreign Ministry Director-General Rafi Barak was that no progress had been achieved in Baghdad due to Iran’s refusal to budge on its “right” to enrich uranium at low (3.5-5 percent) or high (20 percent) levels or shut down the Fordo nuclear plant near Qom. Although the participants agreed to reconvene in Moscow in three weeks, the Iranian delegation stressed there would be no progress until the US and the other five world powers (Britain, France, Russia, Germany and China) recognized Iran’s absolute “right” as a signatory of the Non-Proliferation Treaty to enrich uranium. Meanwhile, every day spent on diplomacy is thoroughly exploited by Iran to zip ahead with its nuclear plans.
The Vienna-based UN nuclear watchdog (IAEA)’s quarterly report released Friday reveals that since February Iran almost doubled its stockpile of more highly enriched uranium which is close to weapons grade from 73.4 to 145 kilograms. The centrifuges at the Fordo facility, built into the side of a mountain, rose to over 500 from 300 in the last report. Using the IAEA figures, debkafile calculates that if Fordo goes on producing 23.9 kilograms of 20-percent enriched uranium per month, Iran will by the end of December have accumulated 336 kilograms of near-weapons quality uranium.
Friday, the Washington Post quoted Mohammad Hoseyn Moussavian of Princeton University as revealing that in 2004, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, “I would resign if for any reason Iran is deprived of its rights to enrichment.” Moussavian is presented as an Iranian academic visiting Princeton to lecture and write a book on the Iranian nuclear issue. debkafile reveals that he was the contact man in one of the direct, back-channel negotiations taking place in Paris between the White House and Khamenei. His words therefore were intended to carry weight as a reminder to Obama that the supreme leader, like the US president, intended to come out of their dialogue strengthened – not undermined.
And therefore, for both their sakes, Washington must endorse Iran’s “right to enrichment.The gap between Israel and the Obama administration widened in the course of Washington’s direct, secret give-and-take with Tehran.Hmmmm.....As i always said what did Obama and Erdogan promise Iran?Read the full story here.
Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Lieutenant Commander: Iran Can Target All Enemy Bases in Region.
Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Lieutenant Commander: Iran Can Target All Enemy Bases in Region.(Fars)."Today, there is no base in the region lying outside the reach of the Iranian missiles," Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, addressing a ceremony held in honor of Martyr Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam, known as the Father of Iran's missile industry. "Wherever you imagine these bases are, they are within the reach of Iranian missiles," Salami reiterated, noting the range, power and high precision-targeting capability of Iran's ground-to-ground, ground-to-air and ballistic missiles. Iran has made giant progress in arms production, specially in area of missile technology, in the last decade. Iran has been pushing an arms development program in recent years in a bid to reach self-sufficiency. Tehran launched its arms development program during the 1980-88 Iraqi imposed war on Iran, to compensate for a US weapons embargo. Since 1992, Iran has produced its own jet fighters and armored vehicles as well as radar-evading missiles and other high-tech weapons. Yet, Iranian officials have always stressed that the country's military and arms programs serve defensive purposes and should not be perceived as a threat to any other country. Each year Iran displays part of its advancements in missile technology, but its Shahab 3 and Sejjil missiles have notably worried the Israeli regime. The liquid-fuel Shahab 3 missile has a range of up to 1,250 miles (2000 kilometers) and is capable of carrying a 1,000-760 kilogram warhead. But Sejjil, which is considered as the third generation of Iran-made long-range missiles, is a solid-fuel, two-stage missile with two engines. It is capable of reaching very high altitudes and therefore has a longer range than that of the Shahab 3 model. The missile has boosted the Islamic republic of Iran's defense capabilities. Yet, western military experts believe that half of Iran's missile capability is still unknown to the West, and that Tehran holds many aces up its sleeve.Hmmmm........Salami says this and that, to me sounds like a lot of Baloney?Read the full story here.
"Who cares about 7,5 Million Jews?" - Solana's Advisor: Obama Seeking to Secure Reelection through Continued Talks with Iran
"Who cares about 7,5 Million Jews?" - Solana's Advisor: Obama Seeking to Secure Reelection through Continued Talks with Iran.(Fars).Tehran - A senior advisor to former EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana, who headed the delegations of the world powers in talks with Tehran before Catherin Ashton, reiterated on Saturday that US President Barack Obama wants the world powers' talks with Iran to continue in a bid to harness oil prices to secure a win in the upcoming presidential election."The Americans' motive for negotiation is keeping the situation calm to prevent Israel's unsolicited moves that might upset the electoral process in the United States," Alastair Crooke told FNA on Saturday, adding that the US policy on negotiations with Iran is an extension of Obama's reelection campaign. Iran and the G5+1 held several rounds of talks in Baghdad on Wednesday and Thursday. The Baghdad meeting came after Iran and the six world powers resumed talks in Istanbul, Turkey, last month and agreed to meet again in the Iraqi capital on May 23. The two sides are due to continue their negotiations in the Russian capital, Moscow, on June 18 and 19. Crooke said the US policy of continued talks with Iran is also aimed at "stopping increasing tensions in the Middle-East resulting in escalation in oil prices". "I think the increase in oil prices has a direct impact on particularly American thinking because it affects so much the constituencies that he is trying to win in order to get success in the presidential election," he said, adding that this is why the US and the Obama administration are attempting to prevent any tension in the region. The standoff between Iran, the world's second-largest supplier of oil, and the West over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program has always been seen as a flashpoint that could sharply increase world crude prices. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) had warned in April that crude oil prices may spike by up to 30 percent if Iranian supplies were disrupted by sanctions imposed by the US and EU over the country's nuclear program, causing "serious consequences" for the global economy. "Clearly it would be a shock to economies if there was a major shortage of exports of oil out of Iran, it would certainly drive up prices for a period of time," (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde said.Hmmmm.....Who cares about 7,5 Million Jews....As long as i get Reelected?

U.S., German Researchers Reveal Date of Christ's Death trough analyzed seismic activity near the Dead Sea and the earthquakes’ descriptions in the New Testament.
U.S., German Researchers Reveal Date of Christ's Death trough analyzed seismic activity near the Dead Sea and the earthquakes’ descriptions in the New Testament.(RN).The U.S. and German geologists claim they had discovered the exact date when Christ was crucified, the International Geology Review reported. According to the report, published in the academic journal this week, the scientists discovered that Christ had been crucified on Friday, April 3, 33 AD.
Jefferson Williams from the U.S. Supersonic Geophysical together with his German colleagues, Markus Schwab and Achim Brauer analyzed seismic activity near the Dead Sea and the earthquakes’ descriptions in the New Testament’s first book, Gospel of Matthew. Matthew’s Chapter 27 says that as Jesus lay dying on the cross “the earth did quake, and the rocks rent.” The scientists, who had detected the signs of two earthquakes in the soil samples from the Dead Sea, revealed that the latter earthquake had occurred between 26AD and 36AD, at the time when Pontius Pilate was procurator of Judea and when, as all four canonical gospels say, Jesus was crucified. By putting together several clues from the Gospel of Matthew, combined with the Jewish calendar and astronomical data, the researchers revealed the date of the crucifixion with a fair degree of precision, the journal said.Read the full story here.

House to examine plan for United Nations to regulate the Internet.(TheHill).House lawmakers will consider an international proposal next week to give the United Nations more control over the Internet. The proposal is backed by China, Russia, Brazil, India and other UN members, and would give the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) more control over the governance of the Internet.
It’s an unpopular idea with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in Congress, and officials with the Obama administration have also criticized it.
“We're quite concerned,” Larry Strickling, the head of the Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration, said n an interview with The Hill earlier this year. He said the measure would expose the Internet to “top-down regulation where's it's really the governments that are at the table but the rest of the stakeholders aren't.” At a hearing earlier this month, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) also criticized the proposal. He said China and Russia are "not exactly bastions of internet freedom." "Any place that bans certain terms from search should not be a leader in international Internet regulatory frameworks," he said, adding that he will keep a close eye on the process.
Yet the proposal could come up for a vote at a UN conference in Dubai in December.The House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Communications and Technology will hold the hearing and hear testimony from Robert McDowell, a Republican commissioner on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC); David Gross, a former State Department official; and Sally Shipman Wentworth, the senior manager of public policy for the nonprofit Internet Society. The Internet is currently governed under a “multi-stakeholder” approach that gives power to a host of nonprofits, rather than governments. Strickling said that system brings more ideas and flexibility to Internet policymaking. “We lose that when we turn this over to a group of just governments,” Strickling said.
In an op-ed earlier this year in The Wall Street Journal, McDowell warned that “a top-down, centralized, international regulatory overlay is antithetical to the architecture of the Net.” “Productivity, rising living standards and the spread of freedom everywhere, but especially in the developing world, would grind to a halt as engineering and business decisions become politically paralyzed within a global regulatory body,” McDowell wrote. He said some governments feel excluded from Internet policymaking and want more control over the process. “And let's face it, strong-arm regimes are threatened by popular outcries for political freedom that are empowered by unfettered Internet connectivity,” McDowell wrote.Hmmmmm........We all know what happens with 'freedom restricting proposals' that Obama is 'against' they have tendency to get approved!Read the full story here.
Islamist Parties in Power: A Work in Progress.(Carnegie Middle East Center).By Marina Ottaway, Marwan Muasher.The success of Islamist parties in countries in transition is causing a lot of angst, both among secularists in the region and observers in the West. The questions raised tend to be stark, demanding absolute answers. Is there such a thing as a moderate Islamist party, or do they all aim at eventually setting up a full-fledged Islamic state? Do they accept the values of democracy, rather than simply the electoral process, as a means of gaining power? Would they surrender power if they ever gained control of the government? Would they uphold personal rights or attempt to mold society after their own values?
There are no absolute answers, as ongoing research on the transitions and a recent encounter in Washington between Carnegie scholars and representatives of Islamist parties from Egypt, Tunisia, and Morocco suggest. (Parties from Libya and Jordan were also represented in the meeting, but their stances will not be discussed here—they are not in a position of power, and the problems they confront are still quite different).
These largely moderate Islamist parties seem to be evolving rapidly as they learn to navigate through the difficult politics and the uncertain democratic processes of their countries. They are truly works in progress, and their evolution will likely be affected the way secular parties and to a lesser extent the international community react to them.
Islamist parties appear to be truly national. There does not seem to be an overarching “Islamist International” to which they all belong, and they do not even seem to be in limited contact with each other. At the conference in particular, we felt that we knew more about them than they know about each other.
The Islamist parties that participated in the encounter—the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) in Egypt, Ennahda in Tunisia, and the Party for Justice and Development (PJD) in Morocco—have common ideological roots in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, founded by Hassan al-Banna in 1928. The ideas propagated by the Muslim Brotherhood spread quickly to other countries in the Middle East, and organizations inspired by it arose throughout North Africa and the Levant. Despite the spread of the ideology, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood remained a national organization, deeply involved in domestic proselytizing and charitable activities, and in periodic clashes with successive regimes.
Muslim Brotherhood–inspired organizations in other countries always had a similar domestic focus. It is only among the more radical, violent groups that international networks developed, for example to recruit volunteers for jihad in Afghanistan or Iraq.
Conference discussions showed that this domestic focus is still very evident today. Though Islamist parties in Tunisia, Egypt, and Morocco—which are now in the government or at least in parliament—face similar policy issues, there is no indication that they are consulting with each other on how to address them, or that they are particularly interested in finding out what other parties are doing. Each party is wrapped up in the domestic problems and the specific political dynamics of its own country.
The issue of sharia illustrates the point. Whether or how the constitution should mention sharia is the hottest ideological issue that Arab countries in transition face. It looms large in the relationship between Islamists and secular parties and is a major cause of anxiety among the secularists. Each of the three parties has different solutions, very much rooted in the politics of its country.
In Morocco, where the new constitution was written by a commission appointed by the king, the PJD did not lobby for the inclusion of sharia in the text. Instead it accepted the definition of Morocco as a Muslim state and Islam as the religion of the state as good enough—though some PJD officials claim that they would have preferred language defining Morocco as a “civil state with an Islamic reference.” They supported freedom for other religions as well. Ennahda also decided to forego any mention of sharia, settling instead for the neutral language of the 1956 constitution that simply states that “Islam is [Tunisia’s] religion.”
In Egypt, however, where the constitution has not yet been written, sharia will certainly be prominently mentioned as a source of legislation. The simple reason is that all major parties and all presidential candidates support the idea explicitly in their platforms.
Islamist parties, with the partial exception of the Moroccan PJD, still show signs of their previous isolation, both within their own countries and internationally. Government repression and the policies of the United States and European countries forced them to stay in their own bubbles. Not all Islamist leaders at this point are familiar and comfortable with the world outside the bubble.
Domestically, Islamist movements and political parties have experienced long periods of repression, with many of their leaders exiled or imprisoned repeatedly or for long periods. For example, in Egypt, Khairat al-Shater, deputy chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood, was imprisoned for a total of more than twelve years between 1992 and 2011, while FJP vice chairman Essam el-Erian spent the equivalent of eight years in jail between 1981 and 2010. In Tunisia, the current prime minister, Hamadi Jebali, spent a total of sixteen years in jail after 1990, ten of them in solitary confinement. Ennahda Chairman Rached Ghannouchi was imprisoned in 1981 and again in 1987 for a total of four years, spending another twenty-two years in exile.
The exception to this history of repression and isolation is the PJD in Morocco, which was allowed by the king to become an officially registered political party in 1992 and has operated legally and openly since then, gaining exposure to the rest of Moroccan society and the world. But the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood was never granted official recognition nor was it allowed to form a political party until after the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak. While it found ways to participate in elections through deals with other political parties or through independent candidates, it could not function as a normal political organization. In Tunisia, Ennahda, then called the Islamic Tendency Movement, sought recognition as a political party in 1981 but was rejected, and in response to its growing popularity, many of its leaders were exiled or imprisoned. The organization only started functioning normally after the overthrow of President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, becoming a legally registered party in March 2011.
The forced isolation imposed on Islamist parties in the past makes it difficult to interpret whether some of the positions that most upset secularists in these countries and outsiders are truly radical statements, to be taken literally, or the result of naïveté about how certain statements resonate outside the confines of the Islamist community. Examples abound: Prime Minister Jebali, apparently in an attempt to reassure his audience that Tunisia would move toward a bright future, talked about the coming of the sixth caliphate, leading many to question Ennahda’s moderation and its commitment to the Tunisian state. And some officials in both the Muslim Brotherhood and in Ennahda suggested at one point that tourists would have to abide by stricter rules about attire and alcohol consumption, only to beat a hasty retreat after tourist operators set them straight about the realities of the industry.There are even starker differences among Islamist parties concerning their focus on policy issues. Both the PJD and Ennahda are governing their countries, although in coalition with other parties. The PJD is focused on how to translate the principles contained in the new constitution into policies—and how to maintain its political support in doing so. Ennahda is focused on getting the constitution approved and devising an economic policy to address pressing problems of poverty and unemployment. Their concerns are immediate and practical.
By contrast, the Muslim Brotherhood and the FJP have not really begun to focus on policy issues, reflecting the political situation in Egypt, where the fundamental issue of the allocation of power among the military, an Islamist-dominated parliament, and a soon-to-be-elected president is still unresolved.
Islamist parties face mobilized populations in their own countries and need to take the views of the public into consideration. The possibility that Islamist parties will simply cancel elections in the future to perpetuate their position appears unfounded, the result of fear rather than a realistic possibility.

A US think tank 'Institute for Science and International Security'says that if Iran keeps enriching uranium, it will have enough for five bombs.
A US think tank 'Institute for Science and International Security' says that if Iran keeps enriching uranium, it will have enough for five bombs.(JPost).VIENNA - Iran has significantly stepped up its output of low-enriched uranium and total production in the last five years, which would be enough for at least five nuclear weapons if refined much further, a US security institute said. The Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), a think-tank which closely tracks Iran's nuclear program, made the analysis on the basis of data in the latest quarterly UN watchdog report which was issued on Friday.Progress in Iran's nuclear activities is closely watched by the West and Israel as it could determine how long it could take Tehran to build atomic bombs, if it decided to do so. Iran denies any plan to and says its aims are entirely peaceful. During talks in Baghdad this week, six world powers failed to convince Iran to scale back its uranium enrichment program.
They will meet again in Moscow next month to try to defuse a decade-old standoff that has raised fears of a new war in the Middle East that could disrupt oil supplies.Friday's report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a Vienna-based UN body, showed Iran pressing ahead with its uranium enrichment work in defiance of UN resolutions calling on it to suspend the activity. It said Iran had produced almost 6.2 tonnes of uranium enriched to a level of 3.5 percent since it began the work in 2007 - some of which has subsequently been further processed into higher-grade material. This is nearly 750 kg more than in the previous IAEA report issued in February, and ISIS said Iran's monthly production had risen by roughly a third.
"This total amount of 3.5 percent low enriched uranium hexafluoride, if further enriched to weapon grade, is enough to make over five nuclear weapons," ISIS said in its analysis. It added, however, that some of Iran's higher-grade uranium had been converted into reactor fuel and would not be available for nuclear weapons, at least not quickly.Hmmmmmm......"Time is on my side".Read the full story here.
Obama Mistakenly Mentions THREE TIMES ‘My Sons,'.(InfidelBloggers -MFS).From this source, dated May 25, 2012: Obama Twice Mistakenly Mentions ‘My Sons,' While Defending Contraception Mandate In two campaign speeches over the last two days, President Barack Obama has twice mistakenly mentioned “my sons” when defending his administration’s regulation requiring virtually all health-care plans in the United States to provide women, without any fees or co-pay, with sterilizations and all Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptives, including those that can cause abortions...Hmmmm......Flashback Jan 12 2012..........Obama has sons?
(Politico).The Washington Post's Al Kamen catches this nugget in President Obama's address to supporters yesterday in Chicago: “The first bill I signed — a bill that said that we’re going to have equal pay for equal work because I want my daughters treated the same way as my sons.”
It's not the first time that a rhetorical hypothetical has tripped up the president, as when a "Muslim faith" reference was taken wildly out of context.Read the full story here.

Egyptian-American writer Nonie Darwish analyzes failure of Arab revolutions.(AA).Revolutions in the Arab world have always been a failure and Arabs should first contemplate why they are ruled by dictators before staging a revolution, Egyptian-American pro-Israeli writer Nonie Darwish said. “My new book, entitled ‘The Devil We Don’t Know: The Dark Side of Revolutions in the Middle East,’ tackles this issue,” she told Al Arabiya’s weekly show of Noqtat Nezam (Point of Order) on Friday. Darwish, born Nahed Mustafa Hafez Darwish, explained that by the “dark side” she meant the reasons that led to the failure of all revolutions in the Arab world since the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1923. “To answer this question, I pose other questions like why the Arab world is ruled by dictators in the first place and whether it is the dictators’ problem or that of the system of governance itself. Do we dare to ask ourselves these questions?” Darwish explained that the “failure” of Arab Spring revolutions is similar to that of the July 1952 revolution in Egypt which overthrew the monarchy and established the Arab Republic of Egypt. “The officers who staged the 1952 revolutions were from the Muslim Brotherhood, but members of the Brotherhood turned against them when they did not apply Islamic laws so they tried to kill Gamal Abdel Nasser and then killed Anwar Sadat.”
For Darwish, the same scenario is possible now since Egyptians might try to overthrow any elected president who does not apply Islamic laws. “Egyptians have to respect the result of the elections no matter what kind of president it will bring, but will this happen?”
Darwish said that she was disappointed not to see banners in Tahrir Square, the epicenter of the Egyptian revolution, calling for the separation of state and religion. “Nobody called for the removal of Article Two of the Constitution which states that Islamic laws are the main source of legislation.”
For Darwish, the Egyptian people have the right to vote in a referendum about this article, but they have to be careful that if they choose to it keep they should no longer complain of dictatorship and lack of freedom of expression. “If religion is identified with the state, you will never be able to criticize the state and no laws will be above religious laws.”
Darwish argued that Islamists are held accountable for the wave of Islamophobia sweeping Europe and the United States. “Several Islamist groups in the West call for applying Islamic laws in the countries they live in and this makes people fear Islam.” Darwish pointed out that the United States is home to a variety of ethnic and religious groups and none of them call for applying their own laws or religious teachings. “Why should Muslims in particular be an exception and demand that their laws be applied?”Darwish noted that even though she is against acts that aim at deriding Islam like calls by Florida pastor John Terry to burn the Quran, she still finds them a reaction to actions seen as “provocative” by Islamists. “The Quran burning initiative came after several Muslims stepped on the American flag in New York and called for implementing Islamic laws.”Hmmmm........"The Devil We Do Know".Read the full story here.
US prepares for civil war and WW III.(TheNation).By Mujahid Kamran.The cabal of international banking families that controls the US and the UK by controlling their money-line through privately owned central banks, the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve System, and by utilising the subversive services of secret and overt societies and bodies established and funded by them, is rapidly taking mankind to the third, and presumably the final, world war.
Their objective is the establishment of a global dictatorship under their iron control and they are not willing to back off one inch from the target set by them over a couple of centuries ago. In order to achieve their target, they have passed laws that have done away with civil liberties and freedom of speech in the Western countries.
Simultaneously, they are destroying the middle class of the US and other advanced countries because it is the middle class that fight for values of freedom of speech and expression. Religious faith has been on their hit list for decades because religion makes people strong and gives them the ability to resist dictators. Ironically, it is the middle class that has been, through its creativity, the source of most power that is now in the hands of this elite. In the US, over eight million homes have been foreclosed since 2007, driving tens of millions out into tent cities or streets, leading vagabond lives. The number of foreclosed homes is expected to rise to 10 million by the end of 2012. This tragedy in which tens of millions have been rendered homeless and hungry by design is unreported by the mainstream media. The great propaganda organs of the elite, like New York Times and Fox News, are silent! The editors and reporters know who owns them and pays them. They can concoct, distort and merge fact and fiction without batting an eyelid! In this propagation of falsehood, they have the guidance of the most sophisticated scientific institutes. All they want to do is to frighten people and raise war hysteria, so that the agenda for dictatorship at home and war abroad can be pursued.
It has been reported that recently the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of the USA has placed an order for 450 million bullets, enough for a seven-year war! These bullets, purchased at the expense of US taxpayers, will be used to quell hungry and rioting masses. Some of the riots will be incited by the agencies. This will be done under the command of the banking cabal so as to unleash repressive measures after confusing the public. The bullets ordered are “hollow point” bullets that offer “optimum penetration for terminal procedures.” The US Ambassador to Israel has recently stated that the plans to attack Iran had been completed. The Congress is considering legislation that has a clause, whereby the US may attack Iran if it achieves nuclear “capability”. The word “capability” is vague and once the legislation is passed, the road to attack in Iran will be open - regardless of whether or not it becomes a nuclear power.
It has also been reported that Russia anticipates an attack on Iran during the current year and has drawn plans to move its troops to Iran through Georgia to Armenia. The former Russian Ambassador to Nato, Dmitry Rogozin, has clearly stated that an attack on Iran “is a direct threat to our security.” China has already said that it might have to wage war to save Iran.
On May 7, 2012, it was reported that President Dmitry Medvedev had stated that Russia will retaliate militarily if does not arrive at any agreement with the US and Nato on the Missile Defence Shield being erected near its borders. General Nikolai Makarov, the Russian Chief of General Staff, was quoted as having stated: “A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens.”
On May 14, 2012, it was reported that Mr Putin has cancelled a scheduled meeting with Obama and has announced that he will not attend the G-8 Summit. The announcement was made after an Obama security aide told Putin that the “the world may be about to end.” This is, obviously, a veiled threat of a world war. In a tit for tat, it was announced that Obama would not attend the annual Asia-Pacific Summit being held in Vladivostok in September 2012. It is clear that the controllers of the US are determined to attack Iran come what may and this will mean the inevitable involvement of Russia and China in the conflict. This conflict is not likely to end quickly, nor will anyone be able to control the outcome. Russia and China cannot sit idly by and let the ‘controllers’ capture every major energy resource and cripple them.
