The Pentagon's Opium trade.

.
.
.
.
The USA is the biggest consumer of illegal drugs in the world, and also not surprisingly the biggest organizer and trafficker of illegal drugs, with American State Institutions playing the leading role.

As the Jewish Mafia boss John Paul Gotti at his trial stated, "Are you kidding, I can't compete with the State" ....the bulk of the business is run by International Jewish bankers using state institutions to enforce the trade for them (The Pentagon, CIA....cynically and ruefully named the Cocaine Importation Agency), and at a more historical level the UK, and the City of London.

Careful Jewish propaganda means that in many Western societies drugs is often associated with criminalized immigrants, and other foreigners from Africa or South America.

The international business may be worth up to $1 trillion......it hasn't been audited accurately.

This aspect and habit of the USA was acquired from the criminal UK State, especially after WWII.

For this reason one presumes, black belt Vladimir Putin and his KGB cohorts after two decades with deliberate American policy to introduce narcotics into the Russian armed forces in Afghanistan in the 1980's...........has not been:

1. Able to figure out why so many of his countrymen perish each year from this problem. It is a real war that is killing Russians in the 100,000's.........and 3 million addicts. The sheer cost to Russian society.

2. His regime has not taken any clear strong concerted action to stop this vile trade from Afghanistan, beyond a few exasperated speeches over the years.

But Putin of course has real not mere symbolic options. He can hasten the exit of the USA from Afghanistan. Second, he can encourage a friendly government in Kabul which is serious about fighting narcotics.........as it is harming Afghanistan itself.

One of the biggest threats to Russia is its de-population...80 million by 2050, 32 million by 2100. Putin suggests more sex for Russians to solve the problem, and yet fourth world Tanzania can manage annual population growths of 4%.

One of the biggest threats to Russia is the International Jewish plot to flood Russia with Afghan drugs, which kills 100,000 of people each year.......it is a WAR against Russia. Putin and his expert KGB have done nothing about this problem.

One of the biggest threats Russia faces in the 21st century is a desire by the International Jews to surround and there after further divide the country for its vast mineral resources. Putin and his KGB experts have made a few speeches about the problem but have been mainly caught on the back foot and defensive.

We ask why the Russian state is so vulnerable, weak and inactive against these clear threats......it after all has vast resources and clear allies with whom to work with at its disposal.

We understand the presence of a fifth column, but with the passage of time these can surely be identified.

Drug Trafficking by the Pentagon for the Jewish bankers in New York and London.


By Alexander SHUSTOV (Russia)

This month Washington whose commitment to fighting drug production in the US occupied Afghanistan is widely called into question rolled out a new plan of coordinating the activities of Central Asian republic’s anti-narcotic agencies. The initiative was, however, promptly blocked as potentially counterproductive by Russia, the country hit hardest by the Afghan drug output.

In essence, the US plan codenamed The Central Asia Counternarcotics Initiative (CACI) amounts to forming, with the funding from Washington and under its oversight, special drug enforcement units with extensive powers including access to the operational materials and databases of the police and security agencies of the host republics. All of the five Central Asian republics were invited to join the program which also had to be endorsed by the US, Russia and Afghanistan. Support for CACI was supposed to be expressed in Vienna on 16 February at the Third Ministerial Conference of the Paris Pact Partners on Combating Illicit Traffic in Opiates Originating in Afghanistan in the form of a collective resolution, but passing it proved impossible due to the resistance mounted by Russia.

Serious suspicions arise in connection with Washington’s bid to tap, in the framework of the program, into the bulk of classified data maintained by the law-enforcement agencies of the host republics, as the information can easily be invoked to exert pressure on Central Asian administrations. Moscow cited the argument to convince its Collective Security Treaty Organization partners – Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan – to refrain from signing the statement drafted by the US.

The US agenda behind the initiative is to gain stronger political and military positions in Central Asia, while Washington actually lacks the resolve to take practical steps towards suppressing Afghan drug production and trafficking.

The US tendency to cultivate relations with Central Asian republics on a bilateral basis and to route around Russia and the Collective Security Treaty Organization is seen in Moscow as evidence of the above, and the explanations like the one offered by US Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs William R. Brownfield – that the US is neither a member of the group nor even an observer in it – indeed sound unconvincing as it remains unclear why the circumstance should hinder multilateral cooperation in countering the drug threat.

Drug production in Afghanistan has reached ominous proportions and is known to be swelling. According to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, the country’s narcotics output rose by 61% in 2011 compared to 2010 – from 3,600 to 5,800 tons. Notably, over the time the area used for drug cropping expanded only by 7% and most of the output increase is attributable to bumper harvest across the drug plantations. A circumstance not to be overlooked in the context is that the opium prices are rising continuously and added 133% in 2011, meaning that demand for drugs is currently outpacing supply. In 2010, opium price growth was driven by supply contraction as a fairly mysterious fungal decease wiped out a large part of opium poppy crops. Drug production did start to climb in 2011 in the regions where the epidemic had taken place, even in Kapisa, Baghlan, Faryab provinces formerly reported to have completely dropped out of the game.

Overall, drug production has become the key sector of the Afghan economy over the period of the US occupation, and the fact by all means merits deeper analysis.

The UN currently estimates the 2011 revenues of Afghan poppy farmers to top $1.4b, which is equivalent to 9% of Afghanistan’s GDP.

Deploying US special forces in Central Asian republics is a recurrent theme on Washington’s foreign policy agenda. In 2009, for example, the US declared dispatching to all the five of them commando units charged with the mission of keeping secure NATO’s Northern Supply Route To Afghanistan.

The White House went public with a plan to construct security infrastructures in Central Asia in August, 2010. Specifically, US Central Command’s counter-narcotics fund intended to pour over $40m into building training compounds in Kyrgyzstan’s Osh and Tajikistan’s Karatog plus a canine training facility and helicopter hangar near Almaty in Kazakhstan, and into an upgrade of a number of border-crossing checkpoints in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan. In the majority of cases, the installations are strategically located – for instance, a facelift awaited Turkmenistan’s Sarahs checkpoint sited on the Turkmen-Iranian border and Kyrgyzstan’s checkpoint in the proximity of Batkent, a position key to the Fergana Valley.

The US interest in Kyrgyzstan drew ample media coverage. Talk began years ago that a US military base was about to pop up in the southern part of the republic which is traversed by a major drug-trafficking route. The June, 2010 outbreak of ferocious inter-ethnic fighting in the Osh and Jalalabat provinces of Kyrgyzstan is oftentimes blamed on the drug mafia.

Ousted Kyrgyz president K. Bakiyev, by the way, was markedly unenthusiastic about admitting to the republic a Russian military base or one to be ran by the Collective Security Treaty Organization but seemed open to the idea of a training center functioning under the US control.

Speaking of the cooperation under the umbrella of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, its drug enforcement coordination must be credited with steadily improving efficiency. The Kanal-2001 raid jointly launched by the group’s members last December led to the seizure of 16 tons of drugs including 500 kg of heroin, over 2 tons of hashish, 9 tons of opium, and around 130 kg of cocaine. In concert, the Treaty partners’ law-enforcement agencies opened over 21,000 criminal cases, 3,400 of them being related to illicit drug circulation. It is indicative of the progress being made that the grab in a similar 2010 stint was modest in comparison, totaling just 7 tons of drugs, while the number of agents involved was several times higher. Moscow’s bilateral ties with Central Asian republics in the drug enforcement sphere also help – thanks to the Russian assistance, Kyrgyz border guards managed to boost the amounts of confiscated narcotics by a factor of 23 over just one year.

The US push for the creation and operation under its control of an alternative Central Asian drug enforcement architecture is naturally seen apprehensively against the background, especially considering that Washington rejects on a wholesale basis the initiatives targeting drug production within Afghanistan. Russia floated a series of proposals at the aforementioned Vienna conference such as compiling an interactive real-time map of drug crops in Afghanistan to guide eradication raids, using satellite surveillance to detect drug trafficking, equipping border guard outposts with advanced technologies, etc., but neither of the ideas resonated with the US. As before, Washington opposes eradication on the pretext that it would leave Afghan farmers unable to fare for themselves, and, moreover, shuns Russia’s initiative to subject to strict control the precursors to heroin and other complex opiates. Precursor codification could make it possible to track their origins and, eventually, to radically cap hard drug production, but it seems that this would not be the result to the US Administration’s liking.

The inescapable conclusion stemming from the analysis of the US position vis-a-vis Afghanistan’s drug problem, attempts to perpetuate in some form its military presence in the country, and efforts to make inroads into Central Asia is that the intensifying flow of drugs from Afghanistan to Russia and across it to Europe is regarded as an at least acceptable phenomenon in Washington.

China's response to Hilary's criticism over Syria

China calls US critique on Syria "super arrogant"

By BBC and information clearing House.

China has hit out at comments by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on its stance on Syria.

A foreign ministry spokesman called the comments unacceptable, and the official Communist Party newspaper described the criticism as "super arrogant".

Mrs Clinton on Friday called China and Russia's veto of a UN resolution on Syria "despicable".

The Chinese criticism came a day after Syria held a national referendum on a new constitution, amid violent unrest.

The referendum calls for a multi-party parliamentary election within three months. The opposition has dismissed Sunday's vote as a farce, as at least 30 more deaths were reported around the country.

'Patronising'

Ms Clinton made her remarks at the Friends of Syria conference in Tunisia, a meeting of diplomats boycotted by China and Russia that sought an end to the crisis.

The US Secretary of State said it was "quite distressing" to see two Security Council members using their vetoes "while people are being murdered".

"It is just despicable and I ask whose side are they on? They are clearly not on the side of the Syrian people."

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei, when asked for Beijing's response, said China "cannot accept that at all", AFP news agency reported.

Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily was more outspoken.

"The United States' motive in parading as a 'protector' of the Arab peoples is not difficult to imagine," it said in a commentary.

"The problem is, what moral basis does it have for this patronising and egotistical super-arrogance and self-confidence?"

"Even now, violence continues unabated in Iraq and ordinary people enjoy no security. This alone is enough for us to draw a huge question mark over the sincerity and efficacy of US policy," it added.

While China is traditionally resistant to interference in other countries' affairs, it has come under intense pressure on Syria.

Beijing believes that Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad should be allowed to carry out reforms to try and end the bloodshed, says the BBC's Martin Patience in Beijing.

But observers say the power to end the violence lies with Beijing and Moscow, which have so far provided the diplomatic support that has shielded Syria.

On 4 February they blocked a resolution in the UN Security Council backing an Arab plan condemning the crackdown and calling on Mr Assad to step down.

Putin on Syria and Iran

This is a better fuller version of what Vladimir Putin had to say yesterday, then that reported by the mullahs Presstv, in the previous copy paste....two posts before.

In its TOTALITY I believe its significant for Russia and the world.

Putin warns West over Syria, Iran

Yahoo news and antiwar.com

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin
warned against military intervention in Syria or an attack on Iran in scathing criticism of the West on Monday as he laid out his foreign policy priorities less than a week before Russia's presidential election.

Putin said the West had backed the Arab Spring to advance its interests in the region, and that instead of promoting democracy the revolts had given rise to religious extremism.

(Yes patently obvious......."al-CIA-duh" has won or is winning in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt and with USA/NATO backing possibly in Syria. Who can conceivably benefit from this?)

Anti-Western rhetoric has been a key part of Putin's campaign, aimed at rallying support among his core electorate of blue-collar workers, farmers and state employees widely suspicious of the West after years of government propaganda.

In criticizing the Arab Spring and accusing the U.S. of trying to encourage a similar uprising in Russia, Putin on Monday played on patriotic feelings by posturing as a defender of national interests in the face of potential unrest.

His lengthy article, brimming with criticism of the United States and its Western allies, was the latest in a series of manifestos Putin has published in Russian newspapers ahead of Sunday's election. Although none of the other four candidates poses a challenge and Putin is all but certain to win, he has been rattled by an unprecedented outburst of public discontent in Russia.

Putin defended the Russia-China decision earlier this month to veto a United Nations resolution condemning Syrian President Bashar Assad's crackdown on protests, saying that Moscow wouldn't allow a replay of what happened in Libya, where NATO airstrikes helped Libya's rebels oust Moammar Gadhafi's regime.

"Learning from that bitter experience, we are against any U.N. Security Council resolutions that could be interpreted as a signal for military interference in domestic processes in Syria," Putin said in the article published in Moscow News.

He said that any attempt to launch military action without U.N. approval would undermine the world body's role and hurt global security.

"I strongly hope that the United States and other nations will learn from the sad experience and won't try to resort to a forceful scenario in Syria," Putin said. "I can't understand that bellicose itch."

Activists estimate that close to 7,500 people have been killed in the 11 months since the Assad regime's brutal crackdown on dissent began.

Putin said both the Syrian government and opposition forces must pull out of populated areas to end bloodshed, adding that the Western refusal to demand that from Assad's opponents was "cynical."

(Desirable, but not a practical solution....."al-CIA-duh" wishes to gain power in Damascus and nothing else will do)

Syria is Russia's last remaining ally in the Middle East. Moscow has maintained close ties with Damascus since the Cold War, when Syria was led by the current leader's father, Hafez Assad.

Putin said that Russian companies have lost ground in the countries engulfed by the Arab Spring uprisings and are being replaced by firms from the nations that backed the regime change.

"That raises the thought that the tragic events to some extent had been driven not by concern about human rights, but a desire by some to redistribute markets," he said. "We mustn't watch that with an Olympian calm."

Putin also warned against an attack on Iran.

"Russia is worried about the growing threat of a strike on Iran," Putin said. "If it happens, the consequences will be truly catastrophic. Their real scale is impossible to imagine."

He said the international community must acknowledge Iran's right to conduct uranium enrichment in exchange for placing the program under close supervision by the U.N. nuclear watchdog.

Iran has insisted that its controversial uranium enrichment program is aimed at producing energy and medical isotopes, but the West believes it's a cover for developing nuclear weapons.

"The West has gotten carried away trying to 'punish' some nations," Putin said. "It reaches out for sanctions or even a military club at the drop of a hat."

He said the Western emphasis on using force could encourage more countries to seek nuclear weapons in a bid to protect themselves: "If I have a nuclear bomb in my pocket, they wouldn't touch me because it would cost them. And those lacking a bomb should wait a 'humanitarian' intervention."

Putin also accused the U.S. of using non-governmental organizations as an instrument of "soft power" aimed at destabilizing regimes.

"It's necessary to draw a clear distinction between the freedom of speech, normal political activities on the one hand, and illegal instruments of soft power on the other," he said, adding that U.S. attempts to interfere in Russian elections have strained ties.

The statement follows Putin's earlier claims that the U.S. was behind the protests against his rule.

In Monday's article, Putin again criticized the U.S.-led plans for a NATO missile defense system in Europe, saying it's aimed against Russian nuclear forces.

"The Americans are obsessed with the idea of ensuring absolute invulnerability for themselves, which is utopian and unfeasible from both technological and geopolitical points of view," he said. "An absolute invulnerability for one means an absolute vulnerability for all the others. It's impossible to accept such a prospect."

Reports: Iran ‘Struggling’ to Get New Centrifuges Up and Running

IAEA Says Iran to Install More Centrifuges Using Old Design

by Jason Ditz, antiwar.com

Reports are coming in from a number of officials familiar with the upcoming IAEA report on Iran’s civilian uranium enrichment, saying that Iran’s advanced centrifuges are not working nearly as well as predicted, and the nation is continuing to rely on its older, less efficient ones.

One former IAEA inspector, Olli Heinonen, said it wasn’t clear from what he’d seen if the problem was a lack of raw material or simply trouble with perfecting the design of the new centrifuges.

Iran has regularly announced new, even more advanced centrifuges, but diplomats say that the designs are actually attempts to fix flaws within a previous design. Western experts had been saying that for quite some time, and the IAEA report is simply expected to confirm this.

It is particularly important, however, because it comes at a time when the fact that Iran isn’t developing nuclear weapons is being shouted down with wild speculation about Iran’s supposedly rapidly advancing capabilities. The claims of Iran’s technological advancement being used to push for a military attack, besides being an extremely poor reason for a war, also appear to be suffering from the handicap of being untrue.

Putin clarifies consequences of Iran attack

.
.
.
.
Words of caution are fine, but like Israel with Azerbaijan.......Russia needs to physically and significantly bolster Iran's defense systems (SAMs S-300, S-400, AA guns, SSMs, Combat aircraft) In addition to extensive training of Iranian military personnel in Russia, and joint military exercises with Iran......not unlike the Russian/Chinese military exercise conducted to dissuade the USA from attacking North Korea.

A strong Iranian conventional defense mechanism makes an attack unlikely, and less desirable by adversaries.

Speeches after speeches from Great Russian statesman from Lavrov and all else may not be enough to deter little extremist Apartheid Sparta Israel under the Likud.

Putin puts words of caution against strike on Iran
Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin

By Presstv.com

If this (attack on Iran) happens, the consequences will be truly catastrophic, their real scope impossible to imagine.”

Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin stated.

Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has expressed concern over the growing threat of a military strike on Iran, saying such an attack will have catastrophic repercussions.


“Russia is alarmed by the growing threat of a military strike” against Iran, Putin wrote in article in the daily Moskovskiye Novosti newspaper on Monday.

“If this happens, the consequences will be truly catastrophic, their real scope impossible to imagine,” he added.

“We propose to recognize Iran’s right to develop a civilian nuclear program, including the right to enrich uranium” in exchange for placing the country’s nuclear activities under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Russian premier further said.

Putin added that in this case, all unilateral and international sanctions imposed against Iran need to be lifted.

In 2011, Russia proposed a “step-by-step” approach that would enable Iran to adopt measures to address IAEA questions on Tehran's nuclear program.

According to the plan, Iran can revive negotiations to alleviate individual concerns of the IAEA about its nuclear activities and be rewarded along the way by a partial removal of sanctions.

The United States, Israel and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program, using the pretext to impose sanctions against Iran and threaten the country with a military attack.

Iran has denied the allegations and promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.

Iranian chickens coming home to roost.

Azerbaijan has traditionally been part of Persia over 2500 years.

The Azeri's are an Iranic people, who are Shia, though they speak a Turkic language. At university I met an Azeri student named Burhan. They are a good people, who under the influence of the Soviet Union are more secular and cosmopolitan than religious........I shared wine with Burhan, and we talked of worldly things. He was studying international trade under an American professor at Warwick university.

In the 19th century the country was detached from Iran by Imperial Russia.

In the breakup of the Soviet Union, initiated by the International Jews in collaboration with Soviet Jews in 1991, local conflicts surfaced in the Caucasus between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno Karabakh.

It is alleged that Mullah Iran with Russia supported Armenia, whilst Doenme Turkey allied to Israel supported Azerbaijan. Turkey has a linguistic affinity with Azerbaijan, even though most Azerbaijanis are Iranic.

Mullah Iran supported Armenia because it feared the nationalism of an independent Azerbaijan and the possibility that the 25% of its population who are also Azeri might wish to join such an independent strident country, bolstered by its petro-$. Very regressive all this. The mullahs were foolish and should have remained neutral in the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

As it is Azerbaijan is now firmly pro-Israeli and has signed a huge military contract with Israel to receive large quantities of Israeli arms, and especially drones which will be used over Iranian air-space, and more intriguingly AA guns, presumably to shoot down incoming retaliatory Iranian jets and missiles. This is clearly serious, if Azerbaijan or Georgia are used by the Israeli airforce to launch attacks against fabled nuclear weapons sites in Iran, AND in anticipation of this FACT, the defenses of these countries are bolstered by Israel with the appropriate technology......SAMs and AA guns.

The Azerbaijanis have also allowed Israel to use their country to launch spy missions into Iran. Clearly hatred for mullah Iran runs deep in Azerbaijan. One thinks the Azerbaijanis are not to blame for this, but the mullahs of Iran and their meddling clumsy policies in the Caucasus from the 1990's.

What is to be done?

1. Iran needs to work with Russia to neutralize the Israeli/USA presence in Azerbaijan. A lot of hard work.

2. Iran needs to massively bolster its defense spending of a meager 3% of GDP to much higher levels......10% of GDP......in response to the war rhetoric, and events around the area. Clearly Ahmedinejad the Jew and his government will not be able to do this effectively. He serves Israel, whilst he is busy making trips to Zimbabwe and Venezuela .....and Mars (His escape destinations via Deonme Turkey---Nazi like escape hatches developed by International Jews for their puppets)....along with his more worthless speeches.

3. Threats against neighbors by Iran who work with Israel, in retaliation, is a poor strategy to contain Israel and its designs in the region.

4. Greater military aid must be given to Syria, the ally of Iran for 33 years, since its defeat will mean greater focus on an attack against Iran. 30,000 Pasdaran must be dispatched to Syria to bolster the regime, along with greater economic and military aid.

Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and the mullahs must know that Gaddafi lost ALL his wealth of $150 billion invested around the world when his regime was toppled.

Israeli Arms Deal With Azerbaijan Adds to Tensions With Iran

Iran Strengthens Ties With Lebanon as Nations Secure Regional Allies

by Jason Ditz at antiwar.com

Israeli defense officials today announced a major arms deal with Azerbaijan, pledging to sell drones and anti-aircraft technology to the nation at a time when a prospective Israeli attack on Iran is on everyone’s minds.

This is particularly important because Azerbaijan borders Iran, and has seen increasingly tense relations with Iran over allegations that CIA and Mossad agents have used the nation for covert border crossings. The deal will likely secure Azerbaijan’s status as an Israeli ally.

Meanwhile, Lebanon’s Defense Minister is in Tehran today, negotiating with his Iranian counterpart. The two are looking to strengthen security relations amid Lebanese concerns of an Israeli attack, and reflecting Iran’s desire for its own proxy along the Israeli border.

The roles of Azerbaijan and Lebanon as possible allies in the event of an Israel-Iran war are not unique, and reflect how quickly a conflict between the two could escalate into a region-wide war.

Iran is NOT developing nuclear weapons.

.

.

We all like gossip. But in matters relating to war and geo-strategy, FACTS are better things to rely on then over-hyped gossip. This is the civilized logical path.

The mullahs were brought into power by the USA/UK in 1979, to turn back the development clock in the country.

The mullahs are Luddites who have shooed away 5,000,000 middle class technocrats from the country into virtual exile.

Technocrats who could have been used to make smart things in the country.....but the mullahs aren't interested.

If mullah Iran does sometimes achieve progress in technology, fleetingly once in a blue moon, its because of imports from China and Russia, and not because of its own achievements and inherent technical abilities.....it doesn't have any. It does not seem to want it in an holistic sense, despite the regular announcements of technical break through in this and that in their media.

New York Times: US Intelligence Says Iran Not Developing Nukes

The mainstream media is beginning to report the actual assessments of Iran's nuclear program, instead of the usual fear-mongering

by John Glaser at antiwar.com

The intelligence community in the United States believe there is no hard evidence that Iran has decided to build a nuclear bomb, the New York Times finally reported on Saturday.


The New York Times ran a front page article on Saturday reiterating the consensus view of the U.S. military and intelligence community regarding Iran’s nuclear program, splitting from usual mainstream media coverage which has hyped fear that Iran is on the verge of having nuclear weapons.

The U.S. assessments that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons and has demonstrated no intention of doing so has been reported here at Antiwar.com and many other alternative news sources, but only now, after successive pronouncements by high level officials going against the grain of the hawkish rhetoric on an impending Iranian bomb has the Times given the issue substantial space.

“Recent assessments by American spy agencies are broadly consistent with a 2007 intelligence finding that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program years earlier,” the report said. “The officials said that assessment was largely reaffirmed in a 2010 National Intelligence Estimate, and that it remains the consensus view of America’s 16 intelligence agencies.”

(There is no reason to believe Iran even initiated a nuke bomb program EVER, under the mullahs, let alone stop an alleged one in 2007)

The report points to testimony from James R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence, David H. Petraeus, the C.I.A. director, Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, all in agreement that there is no military dimension to Iran’s nuclear program.

This reportedly contradicts Israeli assessments and lately those of the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, which stirred up controversy over Iran’s program, claiming they are “unable to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear materials and activities in Iran.”

(Amano of the IAEA is a politicized figure who has undermined the credibility of the organization he purports to represents, and its extensive see anything, go anywhere on the spot zero notice inspections in IRAN since 2003......running into 9 years of work. Whilst simultaneously ignoring Israels huge undeclared nuclear doomsday arsenal, and the potential of nuke bomb programs in Turkey and Saudi Arabia......granted that under the terms of the IAEA, the organization only investigates nation which have officially acquired nuclear technology for civilian use ......rather than go on extensive fishing expeditions against nations which may have covert nuke bombs programs....as in the case of South Africa, where the IAEA failed or North Korea. But this is the character of this Vienna based body set up by the USA in the 1950's, and extensively infiltrated and run by Western intelligence.

Should the IAEA continue to produce such ambiguous and dangerous reports which fuels the fire of Israeli war mongering, then the better option for Iran would be to gradually curtail its activities in Iran)

But “intelligence officials and outside analysts,” the Times reports, believe “Iran could be seeking to enhance its influence in the region by creating what some analysts call ‘strategic ambiguity.’ Rather than building a bomb now, Iran may want to increase its power by sowing doubt among other nations about its nuclear ambitions.”

(Conjecture and highly speculative......aliens may have landed from Mars....Jews genetically may be more devious and conspiratorial then the rest of us......the Rothschilds may have started WWI to create the state of Israel.....Hitler was a International Jew banker puppet.....out to kill as many Occidentals as possible, and the destruction of the German nation.

What IS TRUE is that the Supreme Leader in Iran very publicly AT FRIDAY PRAYERS has stated unambiguously since 1989 MANY TIMES that Iran does not seek WMD's, or nuclear weapons. Given the nature of the regime thats a pretty good guarantee certificate and more reliable than an ambiguous IAEA report after 9 years of extensive work in Iran)

Iran is operating under constant threat from the U.S. and Israel. The U.S. has Iran militarily surrounded, has conducted covert attacks along with Israel, constantly threatens Iran with preemptive military strike, etc. In this environment, Iran has tried to abstain from developing nuclear weapons while having the know-how needed to get there; this essentially is an attempt to have a deterrent without actually having a deterrent.

(John how do you know? Do you have information about the mullah psyche and its detailed intentions better than US intelligence.)

As Mohamed ElBaradei, former head of the IAEA, said in 2009 “I don’t believe the Iranians have made a decision to go for a nuclear weapon, but they are absolutely determined to have the technology because they believe it brings you power, prestige and an insurance policy.”

Despite this consensus view in the U.S., Washington has continued to isolate Iran, to heap crippling economic sanctions on Iran to support Israel – and refuse to criticize it – even while Tel Aviv has supported terrorist operations against Iranian nuclear scientists. Amid intense pressure from various Western foreign policy elites to wage war on Iran, perhaps to install an obedient regime, the intelligence has removed the one possible pretext: an Iranian nuclear weapon. And even the mainstream news media is now reporting it.

"the United States and Europe are hiding a dagger behind a smile"

The problem is the USA/NATO.........and the USA's grand designs for the world since the collapse of the Soviet Union. The Neo-con "Project for a New American Century" 2000 aligning with Israel's geo-strategic objectives in the Greater Middle East, and the Neo-liberal objectives outlined in "the Grand Chessboard" of Brzezinski in Eurasia.

These are not mere theories written in the late 1990's.

China: US, Europe have hegemonic goals in Syria

At the Friends of Syria meeting in Tunisia, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton blasted Russia and China as "despicable" for vetoing U.N. Security Council resolutions backing Arab League plans aimed at ending the conflict and condemning the crackdown by President Bashar Assad's government.

"They are clearly not on the side of the Syrian people," Clinton said.

The official Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary that China's position on Syria was balanced and that "most of the Arab countries have begun to realize that the United States and Europe are hiding a dagger behind a smile."

"In other words, while they appear to be acting out of humanitarian concern, they are actually harboring hegemonistic ambitions," it said.

Both China and Russia boycotted the Friends of Syria conference, which Xinhua said ended with a "broad consensus" on avoiding a militarization of the conflict in Syria.

The conference (organized by the USA in destabilized "al-CIA-duh" Tunisia) urged Assad to end the violence immediately and allow humanitarian aid into areas hit by his regime's crackdown. It also proposed tighter sanctions on the country and Assad's inner circle.

Calls and faxes to China's Foreign Ministry on Saturday asking for comment on Clinton's charges were not immediately answered.

Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said at several news conferences this week that China wanted more information on the goals and mechanisms of the conference before it would attend.

Xinhua quoted him as saying China was a friend of the Syrian people, and that "any action taken by the international community should help to cease tensions, boost political dialogues, resolve differences and maintain peace and stability in the Middle East."

The U.N. estimated in January that 5,400 people have died in the conflict. Hundreds more have died since, with activists saying the death toll is more than 7,300.

Assad's regime blames the violence on terrorists and armed thugs, not people who want to reform the system.

China sent a vice foreign minister to Syria last week for talks. It says it vetoed the U.N. Security Council vote on Syria because it was called before differences over the proposal were bridged.

Western destabilisation of Syria via three neighboring countries

It is good that the Russian Press is being objective, and is highlighting the crimes and injustice against the legitimate, and generally popular SECULAR Assad government in Syria, using the services of "al-CIA-duh".

In the old days during the era of the Soviet Union, the country would have decisively stood with Syria pouring arms and military personnel into the country. The Soviet Union would have stood firmly with a strategic partner of 50 years. But now Russia is run by weak leaders who are constantly surprised again and again and again (running for 14 years since the Serbia NATO attack? Or was it from the imposition of Yeltsin with his Washington economic advisers from 1991?) with the treachery of Washington.

These weak leaders in Moscow then make meaningless worthless speeches about how beastly and unfair Washington is.


Syria requires REAL significant help in its hour of peril and need. It doesn't need Russia to hold its hands whilst negotiations begin between the Assad government and non-"al-CIA-duh" opposition to the Damascus government. These peaceful elements based in Turkey aren't the real problem, and will not solve the problem of USA/NATO aggression against Syria (even if negotiations succeed).

The problem is the USA/NATO.........and the USA's grand designs for the world since the collapse of the Soviet Union.(The Neo-con "Project for a New American Century" 2000 aligning with Israel's geo-strategic objectives in the Greater Middle East, and the Neo-liberal objectives outlined in "the Grand Chessboard" of Brzezinski in Eurasia)

To put it simply for those who haven't got the picture yet, Syria's problems are linked to Iran, and which is linked to Central Asia, which is linked to Russia eventually.

It is welcomed that Putin is investing in $800 billion into defense over the next few years...and one hopes this is earnestly carried out. However it is also a good idea for the ultimate defense of Russia that the country invests substantial security resources into Syria as well.........think of it as investing and testing the new equipment and tactics in Republican Spain during 1936--39.

Syria requires SIGNIFICANT help securing its borders with Iraq, Turkey and Lebanon......and significant presence of Spetznaz's in Syria to fight side by side with the Syrian security forces......as well as bolstering its air defense.

We do not need to mention that if the USA/NATO succeed too easily in Syria, it will be an enormous blow to Russian security in its Southern flanks.....with the onward oxymoron march of "al-CIA-duh" and Washington's NGO funded Human Rights and Democracy into Russia.

FIGHT "al-CIA-duh" in Syria....NOW......send the Spetznaz in, help Syria secure its borders, bolster its air-defense beyond a few S-300 batteries. These help does not have to be publicized.

Russia’s secret service : Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey supply arms to Syrian opposition:

By Itar-Tass and information clearing house


Armed groups of Syria’s opposition from the rebel force known as the Syrian Liberation Army get more and more weapons from abroad, a source in Russia’s secret services told Itar-Tass on Friday.


“Huge batches of small arms and munitions for the Syrian Liberation Army’s troops are supplied from Lebanon, Iraq and Turkey, but unofficially, not through these countries’ governments,” the source said. “The supply list includes submachine guns, machine guns, sniper rifles and antitank grenade launchers.”

Russia’s military expert, Lieutenant General Leonid Sazhin told Itar-Tass that “the scenario that has already been developed and administered by the United States and their NATO allies, mainly by France, Britain and Turkey, as well as the monarchy regimes from the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, in particular Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, is being implemented in Syria.”

“This scenario was developed taking into account recent events in Libya, Egypt and other countries of the region with only one reservation – the lack of the UN Security Council resolution needed for the West. In fact, we see an unannounced military interference of some NATO member-states and countries of the region into Syria’s domestic affairs, who side with one of the conflicting parties – the armed opposition,” he said.

Sazhin noted that in addition to the Syrian National Council Syria’s refugees and army deserters in Turkey create a military structure - Supreme Revolutionary Council – led by Syrian army general Mustafa Ahmed al-Sheikh, who deserted to neighbouring Turkey.

“The main task of the Supreme Revolutionary Council is to coordinate actions of the armed opposition on the Syrian territory and to engage to its ranks new members both in Syria and beyond its borders to oust Bashar al-Assad exclusively through the use of force,” he said.

“As concerns weapons supplied to the troops of the Syrian Liberation Army, most of them were in service with the armed forces of former members of the Warsaw Treaty. After the countries joined NATO and re-equipped its troops with NATO’s samples, weapons were collected and piled up at storage facilities and depots, from where they are now taken and flow to Syria,” he said.

The expert did not rule out that some weapons can be fake Soviet weapon systems.

Jewish humor....and "al-CIA-duh"

Ayman al-Zawahiri

We meet at a nice kosher restaurant, in the city of Islamabad.

The Chateau Margaux arrives and we are soon tucking in to steaming bowls of chicken soup.

My guest is 'an Egyptian' called Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Al-Zawahiri was born into an upper middle class family in a posh suburb of Cairo, called Maadi.

A house in Maadi

I ask him about his taste in food.

"You know it used to be easy to get my kind of food in Cairo," he says.

"Jewish families, such as Suares and Naggar, owned many of the banks, bus companies, and department stores in Egypt, and they liked good food."

What about al-Zawahiri's parents?

"In 1960, my father, Rabi al-Zawahiri, moved from Heliopolis to Maadi.

"There was a thriving synagogue in our neighbourhood.

"My parents belonged to two of the top families in Egypt."


Nasser, former CIA asset.

I ask al-Zawahiri about Nasser.

"I was still at school when Nasser was president of Egypt," he says.

"Nasser became a strong nationalist and therefore not popular with Israel, the US or UK.

"I was in the Muslim Brotherhood.

"Nasser said that the Muslim Brotherhood was a tool of the British.

"Eventually, the CIA supported the Muslim Brotherhood against Nasser."


Sadat, left, with a guy linked to US naval intelligence, and some former terrorist.


I asked him about Israel's attitude.

"Israel always supports the Islamists against the nationalists," he replied.

Our Matzo Brei with Fresh Chives arrived, and another bottle of wine was ordered.

And what about President Sadat?

"Sadat and his vice president Hosni Mubarak were friends of the CIA.

"Mubarak received money from a weapons delivery company called EATSCO, a CIA front company.

"Sadat fell out with Mubarak over EATSCO."

I pointed out that he, al-Zawahiri, was accused of being part of the Jihad group which allegedly assassinated Sadat.

"I got a short jail sentence, beginning in 1982," he said.

Reagan and his CIA-run Islamist pals.

In 1986 al-Zawahiri moved to Pakistan.

I asked him about his help for the Mujahideen.

"I was helped by the CIA to get arms, training and money for the Mujahideen," he explained.

I wondered if the CIA knew about his activities in Egypt.

"Indeed yes. But the CIA gave us new identities and new passports.'

What about Osama bin Laden?

Al Zawahiri was once Osama's doctor.

"Osama, and his brother Salem, worked for the CIA", explains al Zawahiri.

"Now I am the big boss of al Qaeda", he says, looking proud.

I inquired about al-Zawahiri's brother Muhammad.

"Muhammad helped the CIA in Bosnia and Croatia," he says.


The man from MI6, Ayatollah Khomeini.


I told him I was interested in his attitude to Iran.

Zawahiri had allegedly worked with the Islamic Republic of Iran on behalf of al-Qaeda.

"I studied the CIA's 1979 Islamic Revolution," says al-Zawahiri.

"Iran collaborated with America in its invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq."

I pointed out that there are those in Iran who say that al-Qaeda is a tool of the CIA.

"It's a joke, isn't it," he says. "Both sides working for Washington."

"In a 2008 interview I attacked Shite Iran for blaming the 9/11 attacks on Israel, and thus discrediting al-Qaeda."



It's Ayman!

Al Zawahiri continues: "The bin Ladens are great friends of the USA.

"They have huge investments there.

"I got a warm welcome in America.

"In 1993, I traveled to the United States, and met many people in California.

"I've also had trips to Europe, Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong."

"In 1996, I was helping the CIA in Chechnya."

According to January 2000 U.S. Congressional testimony, al-Zawahiri was granted U.S. residence by the Immigration and Naturalization Service.


Ayman al Zawahiri - Star of David background.


Our Lokshen kugel, or "noodle pudding," was set down on the table.

I asked about the 1997 attack at Luxor in Egypt, attacks blamed on al Zawahiri.

Six men dressed in police uniforms killed 58 foreign tourists.

"The Luxor attacks helped the tourist trade - in Israel", he responded, supressing a smile.



Mossad playing an April Fool trick on some little kid.

In 1998 there were truck bomb explosions at the United States embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.

"These attacks brought Osama bin Laden, and me, to international attention."

In 2000, Zawahiri moved to Afghanistan.

In 2007, Al-Zawahiri directed the Lal Masjid siege in Pakistan.

What about the story in the Guardian that Ayman al Zawahiri is in a jail in Tehran?

"There may be more than one Ayman", says Ayman, with a wink!

The GOOD side of Western sanctions against Iran.

.

.

In Iran oil production reached 6 million barrels a day in 1977, but has since declined under the mismanagement of the corrupt 33 years rule of the worthless mullahs.

The corrupt mullahs installed by the USA/UK in 1979 know how to interpret the Koran, with strange new ideas, but have no idea about how to run an oil Industry.

In Saudi Arabia by contrast though there are many criticisms of the Crypto-Jewish rule of the House of Saud in the country, the Jews in Saudi Arabia know how to run the country's oil industry efficiently and effectively. As of 2012, Saudi Arabia is pumping 10 million barrels of oil, and which may reach 12.5 million barrels in 2013. For now the International Jews are happy with the House of Saud, especially the Rothschilds of London.

Corrupt mullah Iran by contrast it is now pumping a mere 3.5 million barrels of oil. The mullahs plead that this is because of international sanctions, since 1979, but this is totally false. Global demand for oil since 1979 has enormously increased, whilst Irans supply share for that demand has steadily decreased.....56 million barrels p/d in 1979, and now in 2012 89 million barrels.

The mullahs where it matters strategically, in economic matters are worthless puppets of the USA/UK. They make worthless rhetorical speeches.......how many speeches has Ahmedinejad the Jew made? What is the combined effort of such speeches since 2005? How many speeches has the "Supreme Fart" made since 1989?.......yet in matters of defense, oil resource management, education, infrastructure......... they seem to no nothing.

It is their supreme ineptitude, and stupidity which keeps them in power for 33 years. The International Jew based in London under the Rothschilds are pleased with them. Just as they are with Karzai with his drug peddling warlords narco state, and just as they are with Zardari bhen. There will be no "Arab Spring" against these vile worthless corrupt regimes.

But sometimes even finely planned Jew schemes can have unintended consequences. The latest Jew engineered sanctions against Iran through the JEWSA is intended to harm the Iranian STATE, and its people (Jew sanctions against CIA Saddam Iraq killed possibly 1 million Iraqis between 1991--2003 for example, but kept CIA Saddam in power).......thus the mullahs have been in power for 33 years, so that they can harm the Iranian STATE at many levels. (5 million educated Iranians have left Iran since 1979....never before in Iranian history has this ever happened)...........the latest Jew inspired sanctions will harm the Iranian state, but not the power of the illiterate mullahs.

However there are some good outcomes:

1. The current sanctions shifts Persia historically closer to Asia, and its natural environment. The puppet Shah installed by the USA/UK was artificially pro-Western, maintaining an anti-Soviet stance, close relations with Israel, security cooperation with Israel against Arab countries, massive purchase of USA arms ...$30 billion 1965--1979......blind obedience to the desires and wishes of the USA......the maintenance of $20-30 billion of state assets in Western banks and assets in Europe and the USA (1979). But this artificial situation has changed over 33 years of mullah rule, and is changing further and faster now with the present baseless Jew sanctions.

The International Jew for all his wisdom, based in London and else where feels greater mileage can be gauged for little Israel and Jewish global interests by promoting Islamic Fundies run by "al-CIA-duh".......a crude and simple plan.......create the enemies and fight them, and subjugate Muslim countries there after...........the process started and was first show cased in Iran in 1979, then Taliban/mujaheddin Afghanistan 1979, Somalia 1991, Libya 2011, Tunisia 2011, Egypt 2011, Syria 2011...... there after Jordan, Saudi Arabia.......and so on.

The mullahs naturally maintained covert relations with their REAL masters....."October Surprise" (1980)......"Iran Contra" (1981--85).......and many other such secret meetings. The mullahs maintained significant assets in Western countries in addition. But the current on going sanctions put significant pressure for even these covert connections to be cut.....expulsion of the British ambassador, and then in the future the closing of the British embassy. When the mullahs are overthrown in the future one day, the new government will inherit the closer relations with Asian nations. Western exiles run by Western intelligence, disconnected from Iran emotionally and culturally will not be accepted back into power.....after 40 odd years.

Iran will become an "Asian" country.

2. The mullahs are corrupt. There is NO religious piety about the mullahs. A true mullah does not seek power......and the privileges of power, they contemplate GOD and on all his thoughts. It is not the business of mullahs to think about the petroleum industry, or make himself directly benefit from it. NATURALLY Mullahs have never ruled Iran in her 3000 year history. But with the devious mischievous help of the USA/UK they came to power in 1979. Many mullahs have become $ billionaires....the richest on the land through this devious rule....Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. We can see from Iranian "trade"(You sell I buy, I sell you buy)....that the mullahs are pocketing the huge petro-$ profits from the oil price boom of the past few years. It is projected that in financial year ending in march 2012 total exports will be about $150 billion and total imports a mere $60 billion. The same import levels as in 1977.....35 years ago. WHY? The mullahs are pocketing the oil export profits rather than using the money to INVEST in the country. .......into the country's INFRASTRUCTURE, INDUSTRY, and of course DEFENSE..........after all the mullahs are corrupt puppets brought into power by the USA/UK in 1979.

BUT.........now the mullahs must sell their oil to countries who wish to do REAL TRADE, as a result of the JEW international sanctions. With China Iran must import Chinese goods. With India Iran MUST import Indian goods. It is no longer desirable or feasible to trade in petro-$ which can easily be deposited and used for investments in a Jewish bank in Switzerland or investment in the Gulf or Thailand.

So if things go well, as Iran sells more oil to China, in return for barter China may offer to sell and build more power stations, industries, dams, infrastructure and defense equipment.

This will lead to true development of Iran away from the low economic growths of the last few years despite record oil revenues which are stolen by the mullah puppets of the USA/UK.

Sanctions Not Affecting Iran’s Oil Output

Predicted Decline in Production Not Happening

by Jason Ditz, at antiwar.com

It is well documented that the US sanctions against Iran have done enormous damage to the nation’s civilian economy, with food prices soaring and the currency failing. But what about the putative target of the sanctions, Iran’s oil production?

Turns out, the sanctions are doing exactly nothing so far, with Iran’s oil output in February exactly the same as its production in January, 3.5 million barrels per day.

Industry experts expressed surprise at the lack of effect, saying they were positive that the sanctions were “having an impact” even if they weren’t affecting the bottom line, and pointing to increases in Iran’s storage, pending new customers.

And while those same experts are predicting that the sanctions will start doing something in the next couple of months, Iran seems to be having good luck selling the excess oil to China and India.

The use of barter instead of US dollars and offers of discounts for long term contracts may not be ideal for Iran’s government, but there still seems to be plenty of appetite for their oil abroad.

IEA: China buys more oil from Iran
Frontline Ltd.'s supertanker 'Front Shanghai'.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) says China has bought an additional 200,000 barrels per day of Iran’s oil in recent months.

By Presstv.com

Didier Houssin, IEA director of energy markets and security, said on Tuesday that Beijing is the world's second-biggest crude consumer and may continue to increase oil imports from Iran.

"China has been buying more crude and may continue to do so," he said at the International Petroleum Week conference.

Earlier this month, the IEA predicted that China’s purchases of Iranian crude would slow in the first three months of the year.

This comes while the IEA’s latest report predicts that China’s oil demand would rise by about 4 percent this year to 9.9 million barrels a day.

The increase in Beijing’s oil purchase from Tehran comes despite the recent Iran’s oil embargo imposed by the European Union.

In January, the European Union imposed unilateral sanctions against Tehran, banning member states from importing Iran's oil as of July 2012.

China has rejected the calls from the United States and its Western allies to stop buying oil from Iran, saying it will continue its legitimate economic ties with Tehran despite the US-engineered sanctions.

The US and its Western allies are putting more pressure on Iran by imposing sanctions as they accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program.

However, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has never found any evidence indicating that Tehran's civilian nuclear program has been diverted towards nuclear weapons production.
