Palestian President: “We stand with Saudi Arabia in everything”

The inexplicably wealthy Palestinian Dictator Mahmoud Abbas, whose elected term ended in 2009, is aligning "we",the Palestinian people, with the Wahabis.

" We stand with Saudi Arabia in everything it did, because we think what Saudi Arabia did is the right thing, and thus we stand with it. No shame in this, we stand with Saudi Arabia.”
Abbas however could not elaborate in how exactly Riyadh has ever helped Palestine. Ironically it is Saudi Arabia’s rivals in Tehran who have always been a vocal supporter of the Palestinian plight and questiion"

It was Abbas who provoked the situation with the democratically Hamas which led to the brutal siege on Gaza.

Media Blackout: NATO Returns to Libya

One of the major advantages of being a NATO member is that you are allowed to conduct military operations in any country of your choosing, with minimal (or no) news coverage and absolutely zero debate.

This delightful perk is more or less written into NATO's charter. And it's been an especially perky perk with regards to Libya —once the richest, most developed nation in North Africa; now a moon crater.

It Begins: FXCM Doubles Yuan Margins, Warns Of Market "Disruption And Highly Illiquid Conditions"

The last time FX brokers, still hurting from the Swiss National Bank's revaluation shocker from last January which forced brand names such as FXCM to seek an urgent bailout, scramble to hike margins was in late June just ahead of the Greek "event risk" weekend, when numerous brokers either hiked margins on EUR positions or went to "close only" mode due to "uncertainty surrounding the Greek debt negotiations... that could lead to high volatility on the market."

Gold In 2016: "Economic Power Is Shifting"

Advance signs of a global slump in economic activity emerged in 2015.

Furthermore, the dollar's strength, coupled with widening credit spreads confirms a global tendency for dollar-denominated debt to contract. These developments typically precede an economic and financial crisis that could manifest itself in 2016, partially confirmed by the disappointing performance of equity markets. If so, demand for physical gold can be expected to escalate rapidly as a financial crisis unfolds.

Experts Say Decaying Gas Lines Are A Ticking Time Bomb Below City Streets

From the city to the suburbs, thousands of miles of some of the country’s oldest and decaying gas mains lay just below the surface of our streets.

As CBS2’s Dick Brennan reported, experts said the consequences could be dangerous or devastating.

In the early 20th century, there were new roads, rails, and an underground system delivered gas to buildings around New York.

More than 100 years later the landscape has drastically changed — but some of those exact same mains are still delivering our gas today.

Adelson ‘offered Obama $1b for Iron Dome for Israel’

“In 2013, Reid used his open channel to float a proposal—not made public until now—that stunned Obama and his staff,” the report said. “Congress had just passed a funding bill for the joint Pentagon-Israel Iron Dome missile system when Reid fielded a phone call from Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas multibillionaire and GOP donor.”

“Obama was thrown off his guard momentarily,” the story reported. “‘What?!’ Obama asked Reid.
But when the president “regained his footing,” he said that he didn’t think private financing of munitions would set a good precedent. He asked Reid to thank Adelson but turn him down. “The idea died.”

US historians set to vote Saturday on anti-Israel resolution

Preparing for the 130th annual plenum, Herf asked the Israeli Embassy in Washington to address the assertions made in the resolution.
In a memo issued not for public consumption but exclusively for AHA members, the embassy denied that Israel restricts the freedom of movement for faculty, students and visitors in the West Bank as routine policy.......... It also stated that, in 2014, the IDF bombed the Islamic University in Gaza because it was being used by Hamas to stockpile, test and fire rockets at Israeli population centers.

“As historians we have neither the knowledge nor expertise to evaluate conflicting factual assertions about events in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza,” Herf wrote in a letter to his colleagues opposing the upcoming vote, which included a copy of the embassy’s memo.

CIA Agents Cross Dress and Play Dolly to Make a Buck in Moscow (Video)

Not so secret CIA agents resort to playing dolly and dress-up in Moscow. When the terms ‘CIA’ and ‘intelligence’ come to mean an oxymoron...

EPA Releases Study on Pesticides Killing Bees, Gets Sued Immediately by Beekeepers

By Claire Bernish

A new study by the Environmental Protection Agency has found evidence through a study that backs what activists and environmentalists have asserted for years: one of the most widely used neonicotinoid pesticides can, indeed, cause declines in honeybee populations. But the agency’s findings are too little, too late for many farmers and food safety advocates, who consider the EPA neglectfully responsible for widespread employment of neonicotinoids...

Libya: Chaos, dozens killed in terror attack

In Zliten at least 47 people have been reported killed and over 100 injured by a truck bomb which was launched against a police training facility at al-Jahfal on Thursday. The vehicle is said to have been a water transportation tanker which had been filled with explosives. DAESH attacks oil refineries. Meanwhile three days of repeated attacks by DAESH against Libya's opil refineries have caused massive fires, so serious that Libya has asked the international community to help. Nine guards have been killed and over 40 injured in attacks on the oil facilities at Ras Lanuf and Es Sider. The attacks started on Monday and continued until Wednesday. There are reports that the extremely large oil storage tanks are ablaze. The tanks are thought to contain around 450,000 barrels of oil. 30 Islamic State fighters are said to have been killed in firefights with the authorities.

USA incidentally sends Hellfire to Cuba

The US authorities are trying to retrieve an air-to-surface missile that was erroneously delivered to Cuba in 2014. According to Vesti.Ru, the US military command sent a Hellfire missile without a warhead to Spain for NATO exercises in 2014. After the maneuvers, the missile was delivered to Paris. Afterwards, for some unknown reason, the missile was flown to Havana aboard an Air France transport flight. It took Lockheed Martin quite a lot of time to realized that the missile had been sent to a wrong address. Currently, the State Department is trying to understand whether the case should be categorized as negligence or espionage. The US is concerned that Cuba may deliver secret technology to North Korea, China or Russia. If it was a fault of logistics, Lockheed Martin will have to be held accountable for that. Under the laws of the United States, the corporation may face a multi-million dollar fine for violating the ban on exports of military or dual-use products.

Russia and USA get ready for interplanetary missions at ISS

ISS astronauts intent to conduct a US-Russian "Fluid Shifts" experiment to help scientists find a way to stay in space for a long time without causing harm to health. At a joint press conference at NASA Mission Control Center in Houston, crew commander Alexei Ovchinin said that the main task of the experiment would be to collect statistical material and study the factors that show influence on the human body during a long stay in space. The results of the experiment, Ovchinin added, would give man an opportunity to fly to other planets, asteroids and return home in good shape. As astronaut Jeff Williams said, the experiment is a joint experiment of Russia and the United States. The results of the experiment will help scientists make considerable progress in preparing to long-term and long-distance travel in the solar system.

Not cold enough for you? Life in very north of Russia in Instagram

Yakutsk is the coldest inhabited city of its size anywhere on earth. Resting near the shores of the Lena River, one of the world’s longest, Yakutsk endures winter temperatures that average -40°C, which creates a shroud of fog that cloaks the city... Ordinarily, this time of year, temperatures drop to around -50 C. One can get used to anything. Besides, thermal underwear, a hat, down parka, gloves and fur will not allow you to perish on the frozen streets. Nevertheless, dressing for any venture outside is like dressing for a walk in open space. The cold burns physically wound your face. If you disdain ski pants, the cold, like a living creature, will cling to your legs; your jeans will freeze to your knees. Street festivals are a common occurrence, to say nothing of the fact that Yakuts love to spend their leisure time in the open air — hunting, fishing, or working outside. All in all, it’s a matter of habit.

U.S Navy May Run Out of Aircraft Carriers

In 2016, the U.S Navy could face a shortage of aircraft carriers. The contributing reasons for this is likely to be the increasing tensions in the disputed waters of China, and the development of the conflict against ISIS with the anti-terrorist coalition. This was written by The National Interest with reference to the statement of retired Admiral John Harvey. According to the laws of the States, the military fleet the country needs to have is no less than 11 active aircraft carriers, but in recent years their number was reduced to ten. It happened once in 2013, the U.S. Congress approved a reduction in the number of military ships in this category to 10 after the ship "USS Enterprise" was decommissioned after 50 years of service. The discrepancy will remain until the final commissioning of the new aircraft carrier "Gerald R. Ford". Originally it was planned that the ship will go into service with the U.S.

U.S, France Looted Oil & Gold from Libya

The U.S. Department of State has published new emails of Hillary Clinton, referring to the motives of the international intervention in Libya. The reasons for invading the country in the documents name their large gold and oil reserves, as well as the extension of French influence in the North African region... The U.S. State Department has published a series of emails that reveal the volume of gold reserves of Gaddafi. According to the documents, the reserves are so great that they could become the basis for creating a pan-African currency, which, in turn, could compete with the dollar in the region. Also, the reasons for intervention were identified as the major oil reserves of Libya and the strengthening of French influence in North Africa..."The email to Clinton is confirmed by the results of studies that began to appear after the invasion of Libya, organized by France with U.S. support.

Crime Drama, War Department, and the Western Press

Remember that great crime drama, LAW&ORDER? I used to enjoy it...I stopped watching it when I realized it was all done to a very tight formula, and that each show was a remake of every other. Here is the formula: 1. Present something so heinous, so outrageous that the viewer is outraged and angry. 2. The viewer watches with roused interest for every step that brings the bad guy closer to justice. 3. Close it out with the villain proven, trapped, and condemned, leaving our viewers with a feeling of satisfaction. The formula works for military adventurism... Thanks to the internet, and my life’s career in languages, I am not dependent on the Western Press for who I am supposed to hate. I read news from France in French, the news from Germany in German, the news from Greece in Greek, and the news from Ukraine, Russia, and Syria in Russian.

A “regime force” source told the pro-rebel website that “these units will execute command-and-consultation missions, and provide assistance and military advice to regime forces in that area.” “They will not have a classical combat nature but a very special combat nature (intelligence) – if the situation demands, and especially if absolutely necessary, Russian air-drops will be executed in that area at specific points,” All4Syria cited the source as saying... Moscow has insisted that it will not conduct ground operations in Syria, however recent reports indicate that Russia has been deploying troops to prepare for combat operations.

FLASHBACK - HILLARY THE SPY?

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

San Bernardino Police Abuse Victims May Get Screwed Over by Bankruptcy

One of the last straws that reportedly forced San Bernardino's hand in declaring bankruptcy was an attempt to collect settlements against the California city.

Back in 2012, when San Bernardino first declared bankruptcy (and is still, years later, trying to hammer out a path out), The (San Bernardino) Sun reported that an attorney was attempting to collect $1.4 million the city had agreed to pay in three separate settlements. The attorney's efforts covered three cases where men were killed in violent encounters with police, and the circumstances had been challenged. The city agreed to pay $525,000, $575,000, and $686,000 for the three incidents.

The problem, though, was that the city discovered that, thanks to the apparent misreporting of the city's finances for years, if the city paid these settlements, they wouldn't have any money to make the next payroll. And thus, bankruptcy happened.

The Unites States government has played a crucial role in the development of the complex and volatile political situation that now exists in the Middle East, and they have had a heavy hand in influencing the region since the first world war. From propping up dictators to funding rebel groups for regime change, the U.S. and their allies have been creating monsters in the Middle East for generations. Western involvement in the region became more pronounced and more militarized during the Cold War, where the western allies and the Soviets fought proxy wars all over the world.

Why Does Russia & Allies Prioritise Al-Qaeda Over ISIS?

The question is often asked about the reasons why Russia, Syria, Iran and “Hezbollah” attack mainly but not exclusively al-Qaeda fi bilad al-Shan (Jabhat al-Nusra) and its allies among the Syrian opposition rather than attacking the so-called “Islamic State” group, also known as “ISIS”, “ISIL”, “IS” or “Daesh”. For years, many Middle Eastern analysts consciously believed that a sort of “alliance existed between Assad and ISIS' leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi”. This sort of ignorance in Middle Eastern dynamics emanates from a long lasting “conspiracy theory” that managed to affect prestigious media worldwide...

And yet major trouble looms. Erratic King Salman's move of appointing his son, the supremely arrogant and supremely ignorant Prince Mohammad bin Salman to number two in the line of succession has been contested even among Wahhabi hardliners.

But don't count on petrodollar-controlled Arab media to tell the story.

Smoking Gun: Email Suggests Hillary Broke Law

The latest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department early Friday contain what may be the smoking gun that forces the Justice Department to charge the former secretary of state with a crime, according to former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova.

“This is gigantic,” said diGenova. “She caused to be removed a classified marking and then had it transmitted in an unencrypted manner. That is a felony. The removal of the classified marking is a federal crime. It is the same thing to order someone to do it as if she had done it herself.”

Number of refugees arriving in Germany is still too high - Merkel

According to the German Interior Ministry, nearly 1.1 million refugees were registered in Germany in 2015, more than 400,000 of them from Syria. The Interior Ministry said that 1,091,894 people in total were registered between January and December. Syrians were by far the biggest single group, accounting for 428,468 people. They were followed by Afghans, 154,046 of whom were registered, and 121,662 Iraqis. Germany has seen more refugees and other migrants arrive than any other European country. In the early part of 2015, that included large numbers of people from Balkan countries who have very little chance of winning asylum. The fourth-and fifth-biggest groups of asylum-seekers last year came from Albania and Kosovo.

US creating new units to combat terrorist propaganda - White House

"Today the US Government is announcing new initiatives to improve our international and domestic efforts to counter violent extremism. The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice will announce the establishment of the Countering Violent Extremism Task Force, a new organization that will integrate and harmonize domestic CVE efforts here at home." "The State Department will establish the Global Engagement Centre, which will allow us to place an intensified focus on empowering and enabling the voices of international partners, governmental and non-governmental, and shift away from direct messaging," Price said. The US State department press service reported that the new Centre will be headed by Michael D. Lumpkin who "currently serves as Assistant Secretary of Defence for Special Operations/Low-Intensity Conflict, a Senate-confirmed position he has held since late 2013. In this role, Mr.

The T-Mobile throttling saga is getting worse. Their PR people have totally stopped responding to me after I pointed out how they were lying about their claims to be "optimizing" video when they were really throttling. And then the company's CEO, John Legere insisted that claims that T-Mobile was "throttling" were bullshit (and then, bizarrely attacked EFF).

No One Wants Shares in Saudis' Secretive, Overvalued & Corrupt Oil

Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has indicated that an IPO float could be made immediately following a review of the business, scheduled to be completed within the next several months.
However, not everyone is so blinded by the company's monster valuation potential to the point of ignoring some potentially important pitfalls. In their analysis of the possible IPO offer, Britain's The Guardian suggested, citing financial analysts, "that the Saudis could underestimate Western concerns about Aramco's traditional secrecy and the impact of falling oil prices."

Attack on Hurghada hotel robbery attempt, not terror act - Tourism Ministry

"In any case, such incidents can have extremely negative consequences for the Egyptian tourism and nullify all the efforts of the authorities to attract foreign tourists to the country," he said.
A group of Islamists from the supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood association that is banned in Egypt hurled lit flares and fired from shotguns on Friday at a bus with Israeli tourists at the entrance to the Three Pyramids Hotel. Nobody was hurt then. The Egyptian authorities said the attack was "a criminal offense" and not a terrorist attack.

46 Months Of Accelerating Deflation Mean Beijing Is Now Trapped

It may be Saturday, but there is no rest for the onslaught of negative data from China, which overnight reported the latest, December, consumer and producer price inflation numbers, with the former printing at 1.6% Y/Y, matching consensus estimates, and a tiny increase from the 1.5% in November: the modest pick up was due to one-time items, primarily vegetable prices. For all of 2015, CPI rose 1.4%, down from 2.0% in 2014, and the slowest annual increase since 2009 and well below Beijing's goal of keeping last year's inflation below 3%.

Why Germany can't face the truth about migrant sex attacks: SUE REID finds a nation in denial as a wave of horrific attacks is reported across Europe

The exquisite sound of Cologne’s cathedral choir drifted out into the cool night air of the city’s main square on Wednesday evening. A Holy mass, celebrating the visit of the Wise Men to Jesus's cribside, was packed with worshippers marking the 12th day of Christmas in this fiercely Christian part of Germany.

As the service ended and families poured out onto the pavement, an 18-year-old German girl called Michelle stood under bright arc lights nearby giving an interview to a television crew.

She and a group of friends had been sexually attacked in the same cathedral square by gangs of marauding men a few days before, on New Year’s Eve. The girls were chased, cornered and intimately groped before their mobiles and wallets were stolen.

‘The men were all foreigners, and when we protested, in German, they did not understand us,’ said Michelle during the interview.

Thousands Flood The Streets In Germany As Fury Over Refugee Sex Assaults Reaches Boiling Point

Over the last several days, more information has come to light with regard to the wave of sexual assaults that occurred across Europe on New Year’s Eve.

What some observers initially assumed was an set of isolated attacks in Cologne’s city center now appears to have been a bloc-wide phenomenon as women from Austria, to Switzerland, to Finland come forward to report being accosted by what some police say were gangs of drunken Mid-East asylum seekers.

“In Sweden, police said at least 15 young women reported being groped by groups of men on New Year's Eve in the city of Kalmar,” AP reports, adding that “in Finland, police said they received tip-offs on New Year's Eve that about 1,000 predominantly Iraqi asylum seekers were intending to gather near the main railway station in Helsinki and harass passing women.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The issue of refugee settlement, coupled with what some women have had to endure in these situations, hard going to push European politics hard right for quite some time.

According to the spokesman, average flight hours of a military transport aviation’s crew commander stood at more than 170, while for young pilots the number exceeded 200 hours on average. Total flight hours of the Military Transport Aviation stood at more than 50,000 hours.

Syrian government to take part in talks with opposition in Geneva - foreign minister

The Syrian government is "ready to take part in consultations in Geneva within a fixed timeframe," Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said on Saturday. Muallem earlier held a meeting with UN special envoy for Syrian Staffan de Mistura where they discussed preparations for intra-Syrian talks planned for January 25. The Syrian foreign minister reminded that Damascus is waiting for the United Nations Organization to provide "a list of delegation members from the opposition and a list of terrorist organizations." "The success of political settlement in Syria depends on honesty in implementing UN Security Council resolutions that deal with fighting against terrorism," Muallem stressed. "The countries that sponsor armed groups should strictly adhere to their commitments to stop supporting terrorirsts," he said.

Moscow has condemned an attack on foreign tourists in a hotel in Egypt’s resort of Hurghada. On Friday, two men, armed with knives, attacked foreign tourists at the Bella Vista hotel. "They stabbed two Austrian nationals and one Swedish, according to received information," the foreign ministry said. "All the injured have been hospitalised. The Egyptian police said that one assailant was shot dead during a police operation and the other was detained." "As is known, there are not any ‘organised’ Russian tourists in Egypt at the moment," it said.

Saudi-Iranian Spat: Another Skirmish in the Oil War

Saudi Arabia is a beheading paradise. But this PR nightmare is the least of all problems in an oil crisis. Once again, the heart of the matter is – what else – black gold.

So far, the House of Saud’s whole energy strategy has boiled down to shaving off its oil production no matter what it takes, even issuing bonds to cover its massive deficits.

Now the strategy has been moved one step ahead via a flagrant provocation: the execution of Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr.

The House of Saud believes that by stoking the flames of a Riyadh-Tehran confrontation it may raise the fear factor in the oil supply sphere, leading to higher oil prices (which it needs), while maintaining the Holy Wahhabi Grail of keeping imminent Iranian oil off the market.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That window of 6 months is very telling in this article; but because of the steps Putin has taken to revitalize the Russian economy, I frankly don't think that the US government can actually destroy the Russian economy in that time frame.

Unfortunately, should this strategy be seen as failing by the US government, it appears that war against Russia may well be inevitable.

Nebraska Is Torturing Incarcerated Youth for Having Too Many Books, Passing Notes

By Carey Wedler

A report released by the Nebraska American Civil Liberties Union this week reveals the state’s extensive use of solitary confinement for children across multiple juvenile detention centers. Solitary confinement is considered a form of torture by the U.N., and in recent years, has been outlawed and scaled back in the United States. In Nebraska, however, children are being forced into isolation for offenses as minor as having too many books or passing notes...

Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Confirms: Rebels Used Chemical Weapons – not Assad

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has confirmed the traces of the sarin gas used in Syria are not linked with the Syrian government’s former stockpile of chemical weapons. The report corroborates the Syrian government’s assertions that the faction responsible for the chemical attack, as well as 11 other instances of chemical weapons use, was the Syrian opposition.

The report also substantiates last month’s claims from Ahmed al-Gaddafi al-Qahsi, cousin of Muammar Gaddafi, who said that the chemical weapons used in the incident had been stolen from Libya and later smuggled into Syria via Turkey by militants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the US government lied to its own people and the world when they accused Al-Assad of using sarin gas on his own people, and wanted to "sell" that as the excuse to invade Syria.

This is why, every time any representative of the US government makes a statement, it is most probably a lie to sell the American people an agenda, the most commonly more war.

Glyphosate, Disease and Chemical Brain Drain

Questions and Answers about Pesticides
R. Mason MB ChB FRCA
Farm Wars
Question: Surely you can’t blame the ills of the NHS on glyphosate?
Answer: Yes, in fact you probably can. Glyphosate is a man-made amino-acid, which mimics the essential amino acid glycine and takes over many of its functions. Glycine helps to detoxify foreign proteins, promotes gluconeogenesis (making new glucose from amino acids) from the liver and kidney, goes into the bone marrow, helps to make collagen and is a neurotransmitter.

WHY DON'T 'SUICIDE TERRORISTS' EVER ATTACK POLITICIANS?

With a never-ending supply of such unstoppable human weaponry at your disposal, wouldn't you, as the head of "Al Qaeda" -- "Al Nusra" -- "ISIS" -- "ISIL" -- "Khorasan" -- "Boku Haram" -- or pick your favorite "jihadist" bunch of bogeymen of the month -- want to take out the western political big shots that you profess to hate so much? Think about it; a suicide bomber or suicide shooter can get to anybody. No Prime Minister, no President, no Senator, no Congressman, no Parliamentarian, no King, no Pope, no Secretary of State or Foreign Minister would be safe from a suicidal fanatic who cares not if he gets killed or is captured on the spot. And yet: thankfully, this has not happened. Why not?

We Are the Human Shields of the Political Class

The sheer pervasiveness of “soft targets” can be unnerving if thought about long enough. They are everywhere, from schools, coffee shops, movie theaters, dance recitals, concerts, the list is endless. Lambs for the slaughter for any nut job with the will and the way. How would it be possible for government to protect soft targets? The simple answer is that there is no way for our government to keep us safe from terrorism. They could try to transform society into a prison (a goal that government seems to earnestly strive for), each inmate walled off from the other, but even that wouldn’t prevent violence. But it’s plain that government doesn’t really care about soft targets to begin with. If they did, they would cease the bombing and occupation overseas, as well as severing ties with governments who oppress neighboring countries, i.e. Israel and Saudi Arabia, the actions that cause the hatred that lead to gunmen storming a concert hall.

Karl Barth taught us not to use religion to mask the stench of war

In the midst of the carnage of the first world war in Germany, the great Protestant theologian argued that Christianity involves more than inner morality and being a ‘good person’.

It will be a century this coming summer that the great Protestant theologian Karl Barth began his revolutionary commentary on St Paul’s Epistle to the Romans. A quiet and studious man of simple tastes, Barth was an unlikely revolutionary. He listened to Mozart, smoked his pipe and read the paper: “Theology is done with the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other,” he said.

Germany had sacralised the culture-state complex, and by so doing, had come to worship something other than God: the military-industrial complex. Something Barth called Woden, the Nordic God of war.

Clinton Email Hints that Oil an Gold Were Behind Regime Change In Libya

On New Year’s Eve, 3,000 emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server were released.

One of them confirms – an email dated April 2, 2011 to Clinton from her close confidante Sidney Blumenthal – that:

Qaddafi’s government holds 143 tons of gold, and a similar amount in silver.

***

This gold was accumulated prior to the current rebellion and was intended to be used to establish a pan-African currency based on the Libyan golden Dinar. This plan was designed to provide the Francophone African Countries with an alternative to the French. franc (CFA).

(Source Comment [This is in the original declassified email, and is not a comment added by us]: According to knowledgeable individuals this quantity of gold and silver is valued at more than $7 billion. French intelligence officers discovered this plan shortly after the current rebellion began, and this was one of the factors that influenced President Nicolas Sarkozy’s decision to commit France to the attack on Libya.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sarkozy called Libya's Gold Dinar a "threat to the financial security of mankind." And that was the real reason Libya was destroyed and Gaddafi killed.

Media quiet as Saudi-led coalition bombs center for the blind in Yemen — along with wedding halls and hospitals

Centers for the blind can now be added to the list of civilian areas bombed by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen — along with wedding halls, hospitals, residential neighborhoods and humanitarian aid warehouses.

The U.S.-backed coalition bombed the al-Noor Center for Care and Rehabilitation of the Blind in Yemen’s capital city Sanaa on Tuesday morning, U.N. officials confirmed to VICE News. The Saudi-led coalition also hit Yemen’s chamber of commerce and a wedding hall.

Fighting broke out in Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East, in March. A coalition of Middle Eastern nations and militants loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, led by Saudi Arabia and armed by the U.S., is combating Houthi rebels and militants loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Human rights organizations have accused the coalition of war crimes for targeting civilian areas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent that Obama is struggling to keep up with his war criminal predecessors in the Bush Administration, by supporting the targeting of civilian sites in Yemen.

I am amazed he has not had the US military to order the Saudi military to carpet bomb the country and level it flat!!!

But if hostilities extend up to the point of one year since the initial engagement began, you may find him doing just that.

Saudi revenues are being exhausted in this war, and the low oil prices have knocked their economy in the teeth, so it is debatable as to how much longer they can continue with this conflict.

Amazon customer complains, finds 10-inch dildo in his shopping basket

On a fateful day in October 2015, Pedro—an IT contractor living in Ireland—was surfing Amazon.de for a specialised textbook he needed for a new extracurricular art class. He found the book, ordered it, but was disappointed when it arrived. The listing had said that the book was the current edition, but Amazon sent Pedro the previous edition.

Pedro got in touch with customer service to see about getting the proper version. A few days later, Amazon told Pedro that it had ultimately failed to find the right version of the textbook and that he should instead return the book for a full refund.

Pedro, who by this point had spent a long time looking for the correct version of the book and then more time waiting while Amazon looked for the book in its warehouse, wasn't happy with the overall shopping experience. He made his displeasure known by providing negative feedback on a customer satisfaction survey, and he figured that was the end of it.

Commander: US-Led Warplanes Destroy 80 Percent of Ramadi

"The US-led coalition has destroyed 80 percent of Ramadi city," the Arabic-language service of Sputnik news agency quoted al-Nouri as saying on Saturday.

He described the destruction of Ramadi a tragedy, and said, "The scenario for the destruction of the Kurdish city of Kobani in Northern Syria is being repeated in Ramadi again."

Al-Nouri complained that the US-led warplanes destroy a building completely to hunt down just an ISIL sniper.

In relevant remarks on December 24, another commander of the Iraqi volunteer forces disclosed the US plots to evacuate ISIL leaders from Ramadi city as Iraqi army and popular troops were completing victory over the terrorist group.

"The delay in operations to liberate Ramadi and Fallujah cities in al-Anbar province is the result of the US interference," Commander of Imam Khamenei Battalion Haidar al-Hosseini al-Ardavi told FNA.

Saudi Arabia Executed a Nonviolent Shiite Cleric – It’s Going To Cost Them Big

Unfortunately, sectarian temperatures inside Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries have reached a boiling point. Low oil prices, inflated budgets, an expensive war in Yemen (which is costing the kingdom $6 billion per month), and Riyadh’s commitment to propping up the Egyptian military regime in Cairo are causing the kingdom’s coffers to rapidly drain. By executing al-Nimr, the Saudis have knowingly made a decision that will escalate these costly proxy wars, which Riyadh won’t be able to finance indefinitely.

Over time, the people of Saudi Arabia may come to realize that their biggest enemies aren’t nonviolent Shiite clerics or political activists advocating democratic reform and gender equality. The real threat to their long-term security stems from an autocratic and reactionary monarchy that’s increasingly angering and offending a growing number of Muslims, regional governments, and human rights activists all over the globe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping that the growing enmity between Saudi Arabia and Iran will not lead to a military confrontation.

This would see the US government falling in behind Saudi Arabia, and the Russian government falling in behind Iran; and how long that war would remain a "proxy war" is anyone's guess.

Unfortunately, just because a move would be the the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could do, is absolutely no guarantee that it won't do it.

And war with Russia right now does definitely fall under this category of activities.

Turkey Warns US of Growing Syria Kurdish Territory in Aleppo

Every time the Kurdish YPG makes gains in northern Syria, usually at the expense of ISIS, the US ends up in an awkward position, cheering an ally for gains against ISIS, but also facing a backlash from neighboring Turkey, who objects to the Kurdish growth.

This is continuing again this week, with Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford being warned that Turkey believes the Kurds are creating a “corridor” in Aleppo Province, from ISIS-held Jarabulus to al-Qaeda-held Azaz, and that Turkey won’t tolerate this.

Turkey has long declared the Euphrates River a “red line,” and warned the Kurds must never cross it. But with both the US and Russia backing YPG advances against Islamists, they eventually did. Turkish officials are inconsolable about it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, what is Turkey actually prepared to DO about this, declare war with Russia?!?

Because that is what this will come to, all threats aside, if Turkey decides to take military action against the Kurds in Syria, which could well involve Turkey invoking NATO's Article 5.
