Earthquakes and Solar Eclipses in Australia
There are cities in Chile and Peru who celebrate lunar and solar eclipses. After the eclipses have passed, they then wait for the earthquake. More often than not they do get an earthquake because their coastlines are along the ring of fire, or a huge earthquake zone. Does the same thing happen in the Indian Ocean where the plates appear to be cracking and coming apart in places?The Muslim Brotherhood Youth – What Can We Historically Compare That Strategy To?
When Mubarak fell from grace in Egypt revolution during the Arab Spring many were concerned of what type of new government might take over. Some suggested that since the military was mostly in control, and friends with the United States that we had nothing to worry about. Plus, many of those college students who started the revolution were also moderate Muslims or quite liberal, accepting of all religions. Other speculators suggested that the Muslim Brotherhood might take over, and we should be careful what we wish for in a new regime.The Man Who Prevented the Next World War
Stanislav Petrov is perhaps a name that doesn’t mean almost nothing for the most of us. And still, it is the name of a man who avoided a Third World War, a nuclear war that could have lead slowly to the end of the earth we inhabit.Is The United States Fiscal Cliff Enough to Nudge China Over A Political One?
Well, we just went through a rather ugly presidential election. Over $2 billion were spent on campaign advertisements; most of them attack ads on one another. They were nasty, purporting half-truths, and totally attempting to degrade the personal character of the other candidate. There was nothing pleasurable about it, it wasn’t pretty, but that’s how we do American politics now. We should be ashamed of ourselves, and it seems as if politics is no way to run our great nation. Nevertheless, that’s the way it is, but today I would like to talk to you about a different subject, not US politics, but the politics of China.Israel Advances Into Gaza and Oil Prices Are Rising
Oil prices rose today after a Hamas leader was killed in Gaza. Israel is ready to advance into Gaza and Oil Prices should keep rising.Will Egypt Get Involved In the November 2012 Israeli-Hamas Conflict?
Okay so, I guess it’s not news to anyone now that Hamas has been busy reloading, whereas some at the United Nations thought that perhaps a peaceful period was finally shedding light on the region. In mid-October of 2012 a rocket and missile factory was destroyed in Sudan. It turns out that in November of 2012 the same types of rockets and missiles which were shot into Israel by Hamas, as those weapons reappeared again on the international scene. This means Iran is also involved.Indian Foreign Policy: An Overview
The Indian foreign policy has greatly evolved after it achieved independence. The country’s moral authority and prestige were eponymous in all along the 1950s.How The US Blew It Big Time In Iraq – Oil, Energy, Iran, Russia, and Middle East Chaos
Well, I would submit to you that we sure blew it in Iraq. In hindsight it’s really easy to make that statement because it is so obvious now. What we should have done is quite simple. We should have put in our own government, let the Iraqi people know that we would turn it over to them in the year 2020. And in the interim we would put in our oil companies, and take the profit to rebuild their civilization using US contractors, and paying off our war debt.Why Israel Doesn’t Need a Draft For A Ground War Against Hamas and Their Angry Friends
It looks like Hamas has been setting up some rather high tech missile equipment to shoot into Israel. Not just those little rockets, which are more of a nuisance than anything else, although they strike fear into citizenry when shot in large barrages or swarms. I suppose striking fear much as the German V1 and V2 rockets did in World War II, or the SCUD missiles did during the first Gulf War. How did Hamas get these industrial grade missiles? Apparently they got them from Sudan, from a missile factory, which was probably set up by the Iranians or from Iran directly smuggled in parts and reassembled.Is The United States of America Negotiating for a Terrorist Organization Now?
In mid-November of 2012 rockets were shot from across the Syrian border into Israel. Simultaneously, rockets and even Fajr 3 and Fajr 5 missiles were shot from the Gaza Strip into Israel. The culprit was well-known, and this was no surprise to Israel’s intelligence service. Hamas was obviously behind it all, and they had recently hijacked the politic in the Palestinian territory. The US State Department has labeled Hamas as a terrorist organization, and in fact it is a proxy terrorist group for Iran.
