The Madalene [whose link leads to a photo of Madame Lash and therefore undercuts his position] points to this, from Bloomberg:
Iran and Venezuela signed a memorandum of understanding to build a $1.5 billion oil refinery in Syria, the Regional Press Network reported in a story published on the Web site of Lebanon’s The Daily Star.
Venezuela would hold a 33 percent stake in the project, Iran would have 26 percent, Syria 26 percent and Malaysia 15 percent, the report said, citing Mohammed Ali Talebi, an official at Iran’s Petropars Ltd. The plant would have the capacity to process 140,000 barrels of oil a day.
Neither Iran nor Venezuela said when construction would start, according to the report.
It seems to me that the forces in the known world are aligning themselves, whether or not this refinery ever gets built. On one side are the communist leaders of China and North Korea, along with the Saudi princes, Gaddafi, the Iran nutter, Malaysia [which also has a dicey record] and so on – the pariahs of the sane world.
On the other are Obama, Brown and Sarkozy, Mandelson, the Bilderbergers et al. Russia is playing its own game but the top is aligned with the club.
Nothing whatever to do with us, the ordinary people. I’m no socialist and yet there is this niggling point that the battle is between two sectors of this ruling club who decide when it’s time to stir up a war. The economic crisis is one thing, people out of work, people on benefits, loss of homes, pressure on available homes for rental and so on.
That’s bad but much worse is the inevitable result of these things – war. This is the mentality which has come down through the past few centuries, the same dialectic, the same militaristic motif – finding the issue on which to wax rhetorical so that the MIC can be set into full swing.
They want war. That’s all there is to it. I keep coming back to John Buchan MP who was kicked upstairs or put out to pasture, whichever term you care to employ, for speaking truths and even putting them in books. In The 39 Steps, he has his little agent say:
The first thing I learned was that it was no question of preventing a war. That was coming, as sure as Christmas: had been arranged, said Scudder, ever since February 1912. Karolides was going to be the occasion.
He was booked all right, and was to hand in his checks on June 14th, two weeks and four days from that May morning. I gathered from Scudder’s notes that nothing on earth could prevent that. His talk of Epirote guards that would skin their own grandmothers was all billy-o.
The second thing was that this war was going to come as a mighty surprise to Britain. Karolides’ death would set the Balkans by the ears, and then Vienna would chip in with an ultimatum.
That book was published in 1915 and was therefore written earlier, by a British MP who later wnet on to become Governor-General of Canada, as Lord Tweedsmuir. The work is fiction and yet the man had a closer knowledge than most of the goings on at the time.
These days, the doings are better concealed but around the turn of the century, in Buchan’s day, things were far easier to glean. The Jeckyll Island meeting was observed, Colonel House’s and Warburg’s machinations seen for what they were and it wasn’t such a big deal understanding how these things work.
Today, with the power of the net and with Google at hand, you’d think we would all be au fait but it seems we’re still light years away from understanding, simply because we’re accepting the pap we’re fed by the MSM, we wish to have it that way in fact and it’s an uphill battle getting people to join the dots.
Those who do join the dots see something we can’t deal with – too organized, too interlocked. How did I get here from a Venezuelan/Iranian oil deal? Chavez, Mugabe and Hitler have shown how one man with a rampant ego and a desire to straddle the world like a Colossus can cause such enormous damage because everyone kowtows and similar megalomaniacs in the world recognize him and can play him at his own game.
It only takes one man, one forceful and yet insane person to achieve this mayhem. Have you ever wondered why this happens – this constant churning out of and pushing up of this type of person into positions of genuine power in their land and therefore on the world stage? He couldn’t do it on his own. Clearly he is piggybacked by others seeing his potential for them.
The essential thing that anyone representing the interests of the majority of people desiring a comfortable life, free from the ravages of war and pestilence, must try to do is to find a way to break this stranglehold on world events. As for your humble correspondent, I don’t particularly care to be swept along by the tide of events these nutters set in motion.
Web bots predict collapse
Good article in the Telegraph today. Of course the sceptics are right here – there are cogent reasons for these results. You don’t need web bots to do simple research and equally, you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
