Hassan Nasrallah Speaks. We Should Listen.
Post Date: 2023-11-04 04:29:34 by Horse
John Mearshimer said that the speeches of Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, are the most informative of any politician in the West. Mr Nasrallah spoke yesterday. He also left a trail of breadcrumbs hinting at preparations for a wider conflict which could lead to WW III. (I think not to WW III but to economic oblivion for the US, NATO countries and Japan.) He says he no longer fears America. He probably has been watching videos of NATO weapons in action in the Ukraine. What was not said is that Hamas was financed by the US and Israel as an alternative to the Palestinian Authority which would gladly accept a two state solution with the withdrawal of Israel from East Jerusalem, the ...

US military bases in northern Iraq, eastern Syria targeted by explosive-laden drones
Post Date: 2023-11-03 17:35:12 by Horse
Two military facilities occupied by US forces in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region and Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah have come under separate attacks by explosive-laden drones, the latest in a series of strikes on American forces in the two neighboring countries. The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, in a statement published on its Telegram channel claimed responsibility for the early Friday morning attack on US forces based near the Erbil International Airport. It noted that the base was targeted by two drones, linking the assault to the US support for Israel's bloody military campaign against Palestinians in the Gaza ...

Hezbollah Chief: US "Directly Responsible" For Gaza Atrocities, Will Soon Pay "Heavy Price"
Post Date: 2023-11-03 17:14:07 by Horse
Summary recap: Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah's speech went for just under one-and-a-half hours, and while full of threats and ultra-provocative heated words aimed at Israel and the United States, this was not a declaration of war speech. But he emphasized that Hezbollah's full entry into war with Israel will be determined based on developing events in Gaza, and whether Israel halts its attacks on the Palestinian people. Shelling on the Israel-Lebanese border was reportedly ongoing through and by the end of the speech in Beirut (Nasrallah addressed his top officers via remote feed from a secure location). Some highlights from Nasrallah's speech... All ...

Parliament of Algeria Votes War Powers to President Against Israel
Post Date: 2023-11-03 10:57:18 by Horse
The Parliament of Algeria has just voted to authorize Algerian President Tebbun to go to war against Israel. While one may chuckle at the notion, it is necessary to point out that Algeria can basically SHUT DOWN entry/Exit between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. So all that naval firepower that is presently in the eastern Med . . . can be sunk as they try to go home. Any other warships attempting to enter the MEditerranean from the Atlantic, can similarly be sunk. This is serious.

Why Have All Chinese Banks Disappeared From The LBMA Gold Price Auction
Post Date: 2023-11-03 06:52:21 by Horse
Submitted by Ronan Manly, There has been an unprecedented departure of all the Chinese banks from the LBMA Gold Price auctions. These departures have gone uncommented by the LBMA, the FCA, the mainstream media, the auction administrator ICE Benchmark Administration, and by the Chinese banks themselves. The exit of the Chinese banks raises questions as to what this has done to the auction liquidity and price discovery as the auctions are not reflecting supply and demand of gold from China – the world’s largest gold miner, gold importer and gold consumer. When the twice daily LBMA Gold Price auction was launched on 20 March 2015 to replace the infamous and ...

Post Date: 2023-11-01 22:12:00 by Horse
Via, Japan is in the midst of a slow-motion train wreck. The country has a massive national debt and it is starting to feel the pressure of rising interest rates. In his podcast, Peter Schiff talked about the situation in Japan and pointed out some disturbing parallels to what’s happening in the US. The Japanese yen against the dollar has fallen to the lowest level in more than 20 years. The yen is tanking because of the ongoing money creation program by the Japanese central bank. It is still running quantitative easing in order to support its bond market. The national debt in Japan is around $9 trillion. That is well over 200% of the country’s GDP. Interest ...

Both ministers “emphasized the danger of attempts by external forces to turn the Middle East, in its current explosive situation, into an arena for settling geopolitical scores,” the ...

Turkey Is Preparing An Israeli War Crimes Case For The Hague's ICC
Post Date: 2023-11-01 12:06:25 by Horse
President Recep Tayyip Erdoan is apparently trying to make good on his threats issued before a large pro-Palestinian rally last week saying that he would "present Israel before the world" as a "war criminal" state. Turkish media is reporting Tuesday that officials are exploring ways to bring a war crimes case centered on Israel before the International Criminal Court (ICC). This was announced as the death toll in Gaza soars past 8,500.

Post Date: 2023-11-01 07:32:12 by Ada
The Israel vs. Arab Children War, which doubles as the Hegemon vs. Axis of Resistance War, both a sub-branch of the NATO vs. Russia and NATO vs. China War, is veering totally out of control. By now it’s firmly established that with China brokering peace all across West Asia, and Russia-China going all out on BRICS 11, complete with facilitating energy trade settlements outside the U.S. dollar, The Empire Strikes Back would be totally predictable: Let’s set West Asia on fire The immediate goal of Straussian neocon psychos and their silos across the Beltway is to go for Syria, Lebanon – and ultimately Iran.
