Hillary Clinton just issues an ultimatum to Pakistan, and then Afghanistan jumps in to say that it will side with Pakistan to war against the USA empire. The USA empire also warns Syria’s Assad that he must go and accuses of Iran for the fat Iranian assassin, and threatens China with a trade war bill. All at the same time. In the USA mainland, Occupy America Protest is sweeping across the USA empire now. So, what’s next? Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, North Korea, China, a huge monster family with nukes, bio-chemical missiles, all of which go to war against the US-led NATO West Empire at World War 3, nuke war.
Panetta, US defense secretary, at the same time, just flies to Asia, visiting South Korea, Japan, Indonesian, while Hillary Clinton is slamming the Pakistani face on her visit to Pakistan. Panetta is motivating those Asia-Pacific allies to be ready for all-out war against China, once the USA and China go to all-out war over Pakistan, Iran, Syria. World War 3 is coming, about to suddenly break out within weeks or months.
The two most dangerous, nuclear-armed bullies, China and the USA, will go to nuke war very soon, to define who’s the biggest bully on the planet earth, but so sadly, neither China nor the USA is the winner. The winner goes to the EU with Britain lion’s mouth, France rooster’s wings, Germany leopard’s skeleton, Russia bear’s feet, fulfilling the Bible prophecy that a revived Roman Empire is the sole superpower on the earth at the End Times.
Hillary won’t be allowed to order Pakistani rulers: Imran
Posted By Bureau Report On October 23, 2011 @ 4:16 am In Newspaper > Peshawar | Comments Disabled
PESHAWAR, Oct 22: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not be allowed to give orders to the rulers, who have stashed millions in foreign banks.
“We will never receive US dictates of killing our own people in someone else`s war,” he told a pubic meeting here on Warsak Road on Saturday.
The former nazim of Town-III, Yasin Khan Khalil, announced at the meeting to quit PPP and join PTI.
Mr Khan said that his party would sweep the coming polls and then Hillary wouldn`t dare to visit Pakistan and issues orders of killing people.
“President Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif are two sides of the same coin. The nation has got united under the banner of PTI to eliminate both the corruption-riddled leaders and their cronies and put the country on path of progress,” he told the meeting.
Majority of the young participants of the public meeting chanted slogans when Mr Khan mentioned Sharif brothers.
“Till now Nawaz Sharif used to say that he avoided protests against Zardari because he didn`t want to derail democracy. Both the partiers start levelling allegations against each others when elections draw nearer but they will not be allowed to befool the voters,” he added.
He said that PPP and PML had ruled the country turn by turn and the people, who had been hit hard by severe price-hike, unemployment, energy crisis, had realised to bring about massive change in the country.
“Nobody can stop PTI from holding public meeting at Minar-i-Pakistan Lahore on October 30 where we will flex our muscles,” he said. Mr Khan alleged that Nawaz Sharif played friendly opposition to PPP because both the parties had plundered the national wealth mercilessly owing to which they didn`t want a third party to emerge and take them to task.
The activists of Insaf Student Federation and other participants of the public meeting were holding party flags and banners inscribed with different slogans.
The PTI chief asked the workers of Pakistan People`s Party and Awami National Party to join PTI because their leaders had betrayed their trust and didn`t follow their manifestoes. “The slogan `to befriends with the US is treachery with the nation` was raised by workers in Z.A Bhutto`s public meetings but now the same workers have become demoralised when they see the slavery and helplessness of Zardari-led PPP to stand up to US pressure,” he said.
Mr Khan said that failure of ANP had also been causing despair among its workers and PTI had become the last hope of the nation.
“The government is using army to kill its own people and it doesn`t have the courage to see eye to eye to the US,” he said. He said that they would collect Rs1,000 billion from the rich class, who had been evading taxes owing to their political connections.
PTI local leaders Asad Qaisar, Shah Farman, Zafarullah and other were also present on the occasion.
Yasin Khan Khalil, a local leader of PPP and former nazim, said on the occasion that corruption had crept in the society. “A clean and educated person like Imran Khan is needed to cleanse it,” he added.
He said that he had parted ways with PPP because its leaders had deviated from the party`s principles and manifesto and he saw Imran Khan the only leader to overcome the crisis faced by the country.
Mr Khalil said that PTI was gaining more popularity in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa owing to honesty, commitment and charity work of Imran Khan.
This is an impressive triumvirate that Washington sent to the region “AfPak.”First. Evidence, especially the determination of Americans to put pressure on Pakistan to stop its double play in the Afghan war.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Islamabad on Thursday, flanked by David Petraeus, the new CIA director, and Chief of Defence Staff Martin Dempsey, who has replaced Mike Mullen. Before leaving his post, he had thrown a cat among the pigeons by accusing the Pakistani secret service ISI’s Afghan militants of using the Haqqani network to attack coalition troops in Afghanistan. The old mujahedeen Jalaluddin Haqqani and his son Sirajuddin, which has some 15,000 combatants, commuting between the Pakistani tribal area of North Waziristan and three Afghan provinces that face it, say Western intelligence services. Islamabad sees in them an advantage in a post-conflict Afghanistan.
The Pakistanis, who have still not recovered from the “syndrome Bin Laden” (A number of al-Qaeda was killed by an American commando in the heart of Pakistan where he was hiding for several years), have taken very little accusations of Mike Mullen. Civilian and military alike, they took off it. And General Kayani, the powerful army chief, usually so reserved, multiplies the swaggering statements against the United States. In short, the visit of the envoys from Washington to Islamabad looks stormy.
Before joining the Pakistani capital the trio had spent the day in Kabul. From there, Hillary Clinton had put a real ultimatum to Pakistan . “There is no more room to maneuver. The terrorists are on both sides of the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. They kill the two peoples, “she said at Pakistani officials. Continuing: “Make no mistake, those who continue to allow such practices will pay a high price ” . Appearing alongside Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Clinton still says that the “era of transparency had come” and that Pakistan would be “help or hinder” efforts to find a solution to both military and political conflict Afghan.
“We believe that to a large extent – a very, very large extent – the Taliban are in control of part of the Pakistani establishment , whether in Pakistan, where they have their headquarters, and that of Pakistan is that they launch their attacks, “Hillary Clinton has hammered again.
Two days ago, General Ashfaq Kayani, speaking before the Committee on Defence of Parliament (an extraordinary fact in itself), had also issued an ultimatum in his own way in the United States. “Pakistan will conduct an offensive in North Waziristan, and if he wants whenever he wants,” he said. Continuing: “If someone could convince me that an attack in North Waziristan solve all the problems, I order tomorrow.”
The Pakistani army chief had continued: “The United States should think 100 times” before acting unilaterally in Pakistan. “Pakistan is neither Iraq nor Afghanistan.”
Khar rejects reports of US ultimatum to Pak on Haqqani network
Islamabad, Sept 20: Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has rejected the impression that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had given her an ultimatum to attack the Haqqani network, blamed for a recent attack on the US Embassy in Kabul.
“There are some misperceptions about the three-and-half hour meeting I had with Secretary Clinton…There were no ultimatums from either side,” Khar told reporters in New York.
Pakistan has a “relationship of choice” with the US on the basis of mutual interests, she said.
The Pakistan-US relationship is an important one and “no one is a hostage in it”, said Khar, who is heading Pakistan’s delegation to the UN General Assembly session.
She added: “Pakistan is in it (the relationship) by choice.” Unnamed US officials were quoted by the Western media as saying after Sunday’s talks between Khar and Clinton that the issues of counter-terrorism and the Haqqani network were the thrust of the discussions.
However, Khar contended that her meeting with Clinton was not “uni-dimensional” or devoted to a single issue as it covered all issues of interest to Pakistan and the US.
“It was intense but very constructive,” she said.Both sides had candid discussions on a wide range of issues with a view to improving bilateral ties, she said. Both the US and Pakistan, Khar said, understand the need to cooperate and build a partnership.
Pakistan had made “big” sacrifices in combating terrorism as it had lost some 30,000 citizens and 5,000 security personnel in the war on terror, she said.
“We need to be assisted, not recriminated. There should be no public recrimination. This must stop,” she said.
Afghanistan would back Pakistan in war with US, claims Hamid Karzai
Hamid Karzai has said if the United States and Pakistan ever went to war, Afghanistan would back Islamabad.
23 Oct 2011
The scenario is exceedingly unlikely and appears to be less a serious statement of policy than an Afghan overture to Pakistan, just days after Mr Karzai and Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State said Islamabad must do more to crack down on militants using its territory as a staging ground for attacks on Afghanistan.
“If fighting starts between Pakistan and the US, we are beside Pakistan,” Mr Karzai said is an interview with private Pakistani television station GEO that aired Saturday. “If Pakistan is attacked and the people of Pakistan need Afghanistan’s help, Afghanistan will be there with you.”
He said that Kabul would not allow any nation, including the US, to dictate its policies.
Both Washington and Kabul have repeatedly said Pakistan is providing sanctuary to militant groups launching attacks in Afghanistan.
The comments set off a firestorm of criticism in the country. Afghan lawmakers argued they were particularly hypocritical coming just weeks after the assassination of former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani by a suicide bomber.
While it is unclear who masterminded Rabbani’s killing, the Afghan government has said it was planned in the Pakistani city of Quetta, the Taliban leadership’s suspected base. In addition, the Afghan interior minister accused the Pakistani intelligence service of being involved – a claim that has not been substantiated.
The US Embassy in Kabul said it was up to the Afghan government to explain Mr Karzai’s remarks.
“This is not about war with each other,” Embassy spokesman Gavin Sundwall said. “This is about a joint approach to a threat to all three of our countries: insurgents and terrorists who attack Afghans, Pakistanis, and Americans.”
Following her stop in Kabul, Mrs Clinton flew to Pakistan to deliver the blunt message that if Islamabad is unwilling or unable to take the fight to the al-Qaida and Taliban-linked Haqqani network operating from its border with Afghanistan, the US “would show” them how to eliminate its safe havens.
Even so, she said the U.S. has no intention of deploying U.S. forces on Pakistani soil, and that the favoured approach was one of reconciliation and peace – an effort that needed Islamabad’s co-operation.
Pakistan has been reluctant to move more forcefully against the Haqqani, arguing such an act could spark a broader tribal war in the region.
Pentagon Chief Panetta Plans Asia Talks on Deterring ThreatsOctober 20, 2011, 11:02 PM EDT
Oct. 21 (Bloomberg) — U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta heads for Indonesia, Japan and South Korea today to encourage more security cooperation that would deter threats from North Korea and provide a hedge against military expansion by China.
Panetta will meet in Bali on Oct. 23 with Indonesian Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro and members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations before traveling to Tokyo and Seoul early next week. The stops are his first visits to the three countries since taking office July 1, succeeding Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
Arriving in Seoul on Oct. 26, Panetta will stress the U.S.’s determination to deter North Korea and to prevail in any conflict should that fail, a U.S. defense official told reporters in Washington yesterday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private talks.
Panetta embarks on his trip as other U.S. officials prepare to resume direct talks with North Korea next week in Geneva to help prevent the totalitarian Asian nation from taking further hostile actions.
North Korea abandoned six-nation nuclear disarmament talks involving the U.S., South Korea, Japan, China and Russia in April 2009 and followed with a second nuclear test, two alleged attacks on South Korea, and revelations of a secret uranium- enrichment program.
Gates had expressed concern during his visits to Seoul that South Korea may not display the same degree of restraint in its response to North Korea the next time it’s attacked, potentially spurring a wider conflict.
The U.S. has sought to coordinate its efforts on North Korea with officials in Seoul and Tokyo, as well as the other nations that had been involved in the joint talks. Panetta’s trip follows South Korean President Lee Myung-bak’s state visit to Washington last week for meetings with President Barack Obama as the U.S. Congress gave long-awaited approval for free-trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Il yesterday was quoted in the Russian government daily Rossiiskaya Gazeta as saying that he’s willing to improve ties with the U.S. if it abandons its “hostile policy toward North Korea and shows good will.”
In Japan, the U.S. faces opposition from residents and leaders in Okinawa to long-held plans for moving a U.S. Marine base to a less-populated part of the island. Okinawans have pressed for the U.S. to remove its forces entirely.
U.S. Base Plans
Panetta will emphasize to Japanese leaders during his stop there beginning Oct. 24 that the Obama administration is determined to move forward with the base realignment plans, crafted through years of negotiations, the U.S. defense official said. The U.S. sees the move as integral in keeping a strong defense presence in the region, the official said.
Japan also is a prospective customer for U.S. fighter jets. Lockheed Martin Corp., Boeing Co. and Eurofighter GmbH submitted bids last month to supply Japan with fighter jets in a contest that may be worth more than $4 billion. Bethesda, Maryland-based Lockheed proposed the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, while Chicago- based Boeing offered the F-18 Super Hornet and Eurofighter put forward the Typhoon.
Japan plans to pick a winner this year to supply about 40 fighters as it works to replace aging planes and bolster defenses against potential threats from North Korea and China.
In Indonesia, Panetta’s meeting with Yusgiantoro in Bali will stress the need for the Southeast Asian nation to continue reforming its military and adhering to human-rights standards for continued cooperation with the American military, a second U.S. defense official told reporters at the Pentagon yesterday.
Gates, on a visit to the capital Jakarta last year, restored ties with Indonesia’s special forces after a 12-year gap, in a move criticized at the time by New York-based Human Rights Watch. The elite unit known as Kopassus, which previously had been cited for human rights violations, had already moved on to take part in United Nations peacekeeping operations.
The U.S. military cooperation now is at the stage of conducting exchanges on non-lethal topics such as human rights training and military medicine, one of the U.S. defense officials said.
Panetta also will meet in Bali with counterparts from the 10 member Association of Southeast Asian Nations, known as Asean, in a push by the Obama administration to get the countries working more closely with each other and with the U.S. and finding peaceful ways of settling territorial disputes with China in the South China Sea. Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie met with the group earlier this year.
No China Stop
Panetta isn’t stopping in Beijing this time because the two sides traditionally conduct alternating visits of their defense chiefs every other year, one of the U.S. defense officials said. Gates was in China in January, and the U.S. expects the Chinese defense minister to visit Washington next year, the official said.
China also has rebuked the Obama administration for its announcement last month that it would sell Taiwan $5.3 billion in upgrades for the island nation’s fleet of Lockheed Martin Corp. F-16 fighter jets. China, which regards Taiwan as a province to be reunited with the mainland by force if necessary, said the latest sale would hurt its military ties with the U.S.
The U.S., which has sought to balance its commitment to help Taiwan deter China with Obama’s push to improve relations with officials in Beijing, rejected Taiwan’s request for a more advanced model of the F-16.
Asked whether any regular military talks between the U.S. and China have been scheduled, the U.S. defense official said the two sides are still discussing a resumption.

Panetta to Meet With Southeast Asian Defense Ministers
By THE NEW YORK TIMES
BALI, Indonesia — Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta is on the Indonesian resort island of Bali on Sunday for meetings with defense ministers from 10 Southeast Asian nations. Worries about China’s military buildup in the Pacific will be high on the agenda.
Mr. Panetta, who is on his first trip to Asia as defense secretary, told reporters on his plane en route to Indonesia that the United States “will remain a strong Pacific force in the 21st century” and is committed to security in the region.
Mr. Panetta will also visit Japan and South Korea.October 24th, 2011
With NATO bombing of Libya set to end, U.S. Sen. John McCain on Sunday raised the possibility of some kind of military attack on Syria, where the government of Bashar Assad has been accused of brutally cracking down on protesters.
“Now that military operations in Libya are ending, there will be renewed focus on what partial military operations might be considered to protect civilian lives in Syria,” McCain (R-Ariz.) said at a meeting of the World Economic Forum in Jordan. “The Assad regime should not consider that it can get away with mass murder. Kadafi made that mistake and it cost him everything.”
2011-10-23 (China Military News cited from Reuters) — Leon Panetta started on Sunday his first visit to Asia as U.S. defense secretary where he is expected to confront concerns over territorial disputes in the South China Sea and questions about North Korea’s latest overtures.
Panetta will hold talks later on Sunday with Southeast Asian defense ministers meeting on the resort island of Bali as well as meet with his Indonesian counterpart. He next heads to Japan on Monday and South Korea on Wednesday, countries where the United States has a total of around 80,000 troops stationed.
Here are some of the top issues in Asia facing Panetta, who took over the Pentagon’s top job in July after serving as the director of the CIA:
SOUTH CHINA SEA
China is at odds with many of its southern neighbors over competing claims to vast swathes of the South China Sea while Washington has irritated Beijing by declaring it also has a national interest at stake in ensuring freedom of navigation and trade in the area.
In May and June, Vietnam, which is deepening ties with the U.S. military, accused Chinese vessels of harassing Vietnamese ships within Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone.
The two countries recently signed an agreement aiming to contain the dispute, including opening a hotline to deal with flare-ups.
Close U.S.-ally Japan, where Panetta will head on Monday, warned in its annual defense white paper that it expects China’s naval forces to step up their activities in waters around Japan.
Panetta, in a preview of a theme he is expected to stress throughout the trip, told reporters on his flight to Indonesia that Beijing needed “to be working with us to try to recognize international rules so that all countries can enjoy security and enjoy navigation rights, right of passage.”
The South China Sea is believed to have rich deposits of oil and gas. It is also a rich fishing ground.
Panetta’s trip to South Korea from Wednesday through Friday comes at a moment of overtures by the reclusive North.
The United States and North Korea reached an agreement last week on resuming recovery of the remains of American soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War, activities halted since 2005.
The United States and North Korea will also meet on Monday and Tuesday in Geneva over the North’s nuclear program, although major breakthroughs are not expected.
Panetta, in comments to reporters on his flight to Indonesia, noted that the relationship with North Korea has “always been one of either accommodation or provocation.”
“And at the present time it appears that they’re trying to be accommodating in some ways and try to work with us in some areas. And you know, obviously, we would want them to do that,” he said.
“But I think we always have to be prepared, from a security point of view, to deal with the likelihood that as succession develops in North Korea that it could lead to greater provocations.”
North Korea’s Kim Jong-il is gradually preparing to be replaced by his son Kim Jong-un, and some analysts worry that the succession of power could lead to more provocations.
This could include testing another nuclear weapon or picking new fights with Seoul after North Korea was blamed for killing some 50 South Koreans in two attacks near their contested maritime border in 2010.
Last year, the North also unveiled a uranium enrichment facility giving it a second route to making an atomic bomb.
One big issue during Panetta’s trip to Japan will be the long delayed effort to move the U.S. Marines’ Futenma air base off Japan’s Okinawa island, which plays reluctant host to about half the U.S. military in Japan.
Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has recommitted to the 2006 agreement on Futenma and Panetta is expected to urge Japan to follow-through with the accord.
The plan would move the base to a less populated area of Okinawa, as part of a broader realignment of U.S. forces that would shift some 8,000 troops to Guam.
But local Okinawa residents oppose the move, while U.S. lawmakers — who are under pressure to trim defense spending — could find the costs of a transfer to Guam a tempting target.
Senator Jim Webb, in a letter to Panetta last week, cited deep U.S. concerns about the affordability of the 2006 plan.
INDONESIA’S SPECIAL FORCES
In Indonesia, Panetta is expected to discuss, among other things, the status of U.S. military cooperation with that country’s special forces.
The United States last year dropped a ban on ties with Indonesia’s special forces, imposed over human rights abuses in the 1990s. The decision was taken after Indonesia took steps requested by Washington including removal of convicted human rights violators from the organization’s ranks.
Human rights groups voiced concern at the time, however, that the roughly 5,000-strong special forces unit, known as Kopassus, still harbored rights offenders who committed abuses in East Timor and elsewhere but were never convicted.
Contacts between the U.S. military and Kopassus had been cut off entirely in 1999.
2011-10-23 (China Military News cited from Xinhua) — Vice Chairman of China’s Central Military Commission Guo Boxiong left Beijing Sunday to pay official goodwill visits to Cuba, Columbia and Peru.
Guo was invited by the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR), Columbia’s Defense Ministry and Peru’s Defense Ministry.
Guo will meet state and military leaders and visit the armed forces and military institutes of the three countries, according to a statement from Guo’s office.
Iran, Israel, China and World War III | In Context
July 19, 2011 by Marchand, Military Affairs Commentator
The latest news from former CIA Agent Robert Baer, reported by Al Jazeera, states that Israel may very well be planning to attack Iran this coming fall. To many people who remember the Arab-Israeli wars of 1967 and 1973, this seems a one sided battle in which Israel once again roundly thumps it’s rather bellicose neighbors and wins for herself yet another glorious victory. However, the reality of such a conflict could be far different.
Iran possesses an Armed Forces of roughly four million. This includes Active, Reserve and Paramilitary components. The Iranian also possesses an unknown number of Basij Militia members. In 1985 the number of the Basij Militia stood at three million strong. This brings Iran’s total military capabilities up to almost seven million. By comparison, the entire US Armed Forces stands at a little over two and a half million Active, Guard and Reserve forces, keeping in mind the fact that much of this force is currently deployed overseas.
Additionally, Iran’s armed forces are strengthened by the presence of at least 29 Russian Air Defense Systems and possibly a contingent of Russian troops. The presence of Russian troops in Iran would be likely since Russia has held joint military exercises with Iran and signed a mutual defense agreement with the Persian country. Coincidentally, this is eerily similar to the defense treaty signed between Russia and China.
Iran is no country to be underestimated. Iran has developed weapons, in conjunction with the Chinese Aeronautics Industry, capable of attacking and destroying the US fleet in the Persian Gulf – namely, the Kowsar Missile which is capable of being launched undetected from land or sea and striking US ships anywhere in the Persian Gulf. Weapons such as these could not only do significant damage to the US fleet but could completely negate US naval power in the region.
Thus, a potential Israeli attack on Iran worries many within Israel’s intelligence service, as well as, those in the US Department of Defense. A war between Israel and Iran would, not only, drag an unwilling and unprepared United States into the conflict but it, also, has the potential to draw in China, Russia and, of course, Iran’s long time allies Syria and Lebanon – sparking World War III.
The administration seems embarrassingly unprepared for such a conflict. With defense budget cut backs and troop draw downs, the United States is in no position for a conflict with Iran and her allies. Why then would Israel press for a war with Iran?
The answer is rather simple. Israel feels choked and threatened by the increasing power of her rather hostile neighbors, particularly in light of what has become known as the Arab Spring, the name for the revolutions sweeping the Arab world. Hezbollah, a long time enemy of Israel, now controls Lebanon and has become much better armed, trained and equipped thanks to the arrival of Iranian warships traveling through the Suez Canal.
Syria has become emboldened because of its success in suppressing its own revolution and the lack of US intervention. Furthermore, the Syrian leadership has inherent ties to Iran, President Bashar Al-Assad and his family are Alawite, a sect of the Shia and of course Iran is predominately Shia. It is widely believed that Iran has been supplying Syria with arms, as well as, Lebanon.
Additionally, Iraq’s leadership is predominately Shia and therefore, predisposed to support Iranian political aims. This is largely due to the fact that the Iranian religious leadership is the theological head of the Shia sect of Islam.
These fears have put Israel on what Sun Tzu aptly referred to as “Death Ground” – A place from which there is no retreat. Israel feels hemmed in and suffocated. As a result, the Israeli leadership, namely President Netanyahu, reportedly feel they have little recourse than to launch a preemptive strike.
A decision to attack Iran would benefit neither Israel nor the US. On the other hand, it would benefit Iran and Russia. Persia once controlled the entire Middle East. Removing the US and her ally Israel would ensure Iran’s dominance in the region once again.
Meanwhile, Russia is eyeing the great oil resources of the Middle East. In her mind, removing the US and Israel and placing her vassal, Iran, in control of the region would by extension would give Russia much greater influence in that part of the world.
What does China have to gain? China feels it benefits from anything that politically and militarily weakens the US and her allies. A disastrous war in which the US and Israel were defeated would, also, force the US to begin to concede control of Africa and Asia to China and her economic interests.
The potential for a war seems great and the prospects for an American victory seem far from great. We as Americans and citizens of the Republic must consider whether we are ready to commit our children, our lives and our property in yet another war in the Middle East.
World War 3: Syrian internet hackers find documents showing plans by Turkey, Britain, France & the U.S. to attack Syria | Blind Bat News
September 13, 2011 by Aaron Hutchins| Leave a comment
Unconfirmed report that the Arabic language website Syria Steps says hackers (known as Syrian Cyber Army) found documents that show that France and Britain have grand ambitions of retaking their former mandates of Syria, Lebanon, and Israel/Palestine. I wonder if this has anything to do with the new oil and gas fields discovered off the Lebanese coast?
Apparently the French have offered Turkey guaranteed membership in the European Union, and ensure that Turkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, remains in power for along time. In exchange Turkey will help topple the Syrian government.
The documents go on to detail how the region would be split up between France, United Kingdom and United States. Basically France and the U.K. would regain control of their old post World War 1 mandates, and the U.S. would get bases in the eastern area of Syria known as Deir ez-Zor.
The report also claims that Turkey will allow Israel to do what it wants. This makes the report suspicious given the current relations between Turkey and Israel. However, if the report is true it suggests that Turkey is putting on a big front acting like it’s ready to go to war with Israel, which could be a red herring operation.
