The State Of The World: Captured In One Day Of News

Just take a look at the various news from around the world and stop to reflect on how far we have fallen - collectively - and it is stunning.

First up is Hal's latest and it is a good one, definitely worth watching:

More conflicting information from the Middle East:

Barack Obama cares about Barack Obama far more than he does about either Israel or Iran. And as far as Barack Obama is concerned, delaying the coming war between Israel and Iran until after the election is what is best for Barack Obama. Just think about it. If Israel attacked Iran right now, who would that please? It would mostly please hardcore Republicans, and they are not going to vote for Obama anyway. To independents and liberals, Obama would look like a guy that couldn't stop war from happening in the Middle East. If the U.S. showed support for the Israeli attack, that would greatly discourage his anti-war supporters from going to the polls.

A war between Israel and Iran is a no-win situation for Obama right now, and as I wrote about yesterday, the Obama administration has been trying to discourage Israel from attacking Iran for weeks. Well, now it is being reported in major international news sources that a deal has been reached between Obama and Israel.

Obama is going to publicly declare what the "red lines" are that will cause the U.S. to strike Iran's nuclear program, and the U.S. military is going to send some of their most advanced bunker busting bombs to Israel. Those bombs will come in very handy in getting at the Iranian nuclear facilities that are hidden underground. In return, Israel has apparently agreed to delay the attack on Iran until after the election. So would Barack Obama really play politics with war in the Middle East? Of course he would.

According to the Telegraph, Barack Obama will shortly announce the "red lines" that would cause the U.S. to launch a military strike against Iran.

But of course none of those "red lines" will be crossed until after the election in November.

So why aren't we hearing about this deal between Obama and Israel in the U.S. media?

Well, it is because the U.S. media is so busy covering all of the other important news items of the day. Just check out some of the headlines that I pulled off of major U.S. news websites earlier today....

"Katie Couric's new talk show digs a little deeper"

"Michelle Obama on how she'll pick DNC dress"

"When exercise equipment lies"

"Kelly Ripa reveals new 'Live!' co-host"

"Heidi and Seal Top Hollywood's Nastiest Divorces"

"Ready for iPhone 5? Apple is"

"Prince Harry steps out for first time since scandal"

In America, the media tells us what the news is going to be, and the American people accept it. The media is dominated by just a handful of incredibly powerful corporate conglomerates, so the news is actually not that hard to control.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu surprisingly canceled a meeting of the security cabinet Wednesday morning after details from a meeting of the same forum on Tuesday night were leaked to the press.

Tuesday’s seven-hour session dealt mainly with the Iranian threat, and featured briefings by the Mossad, Shin Bet security service and IDF Military Intelligence, according to Yedioth Ahronoth. Cabinet members were reportedly amazed to hear conflicting assessments from the various intelligence chiefs on Iran’s nuclear program. “There is an absence of agreement in Israel concerning the point at which an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities would no longer be effective,” the paper reported.

The security cabinet is a forum in which senior government ministers discuss vital security questions. It has 14 member ministers plus four observers with no voting rights. The list of ministers present at Tuesday’s meeting is confidential and not being released to the press.

A government official, who asked to remain anonymous, stressed that Netanyahu canceled only the single security cabinet meeting planned for Wednesday, and denied earlier reports that he had decided to dissolve the entire forum. “The security cabinet will continue to meet, hopefully without leaks,” he said.
“The security of this country and its citizens depends on the capacity to conduct secret in-depth discussion within the national security cabinet,” Netanyahu said in a statement released by his. “It’s there that all the facts, opinions and ramifications are being presented. It’s the basic instrument to manage our national security.”

Terrorists slightly changed their mode of attack in August, coming at Israelfrom the Sinai Peninsula rather than Gaza, the Shin Bet reported Wednesday. Twenty-one attacks were launched from Gaza in August, compared to 28 in July.

Two attacks originated in Sinai, one of them a major infiltration attempt in which terrorists killed 16 Egyptian soldiers and commandeered two APCs, which they used to try to enterIsrael.

Iran makes no distinction between US and Israeli interests and will retaliate against both countries if attacked, an Iranian military commander said on Wednesday.

The comments came after the White House denied an Israeli news report that it was negotiating with Tehran to keep out of a future Israel-Iran war and as US President Barack Obama fends off accusations from his election rival that he is too soft on Tehran.

"On this basis, today only the Americans have taken a threatening stance towards the Islamic Republic," Fadavi said. "If the Americans commit the smallest folly they will not leave the region safely.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is taking Hizbullah threats seriously and has ordered the IDF to protect energy facilities, some of which were targeted by the terrorist organization in Second Lebanon War, according to Globes.

Sources told the business newspaper that the Prime Minister told the Home Front division of the IDF to map out a program how to protect strategic facilities, one day after Hizbullah terrorist leader Hassan Nasrallah said his missiles would aim for power stations in the event of war.

The Russian economy is prepared for a possible economic meltdown as a result of the slowing of global growth and the escalating eurozone debt crisis, President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

At a meeting with regional ombudsmen, Putin said the situation was complex both in the European and global economies.

'Now news is coming that China’s economic development rates have slightly slowed and declined and China is one of the world’s largest consumers. These are, no doubt, alarming signals. Let us hope that these concerns do not transform into a full-blown crisis,” Putin said. “Let us hope for the better but prepare for the worse,” Putin added.

Obama has been delaying Israel for the past three years. How can Israel fall for another delay? By November Iran could have enough nuclear material for a bomb, and Israel knows that one bomb is enough. I still feel Israel will make the move in October. I will be praying whatever the case.

Mrs.C said...

Just a wild guess, but the MOP stories are untrue. The 30k pound bomb mentioned the other day, Israel has no way to deliver it. Only the U.S. does, and we know that they wont go drop it on the Iran nuke site.
Israel has had "bunker busting" bombs for years now. The only thing they would be interested in is possibly the refueling aircraft. But even then, they have themselves covered with their modified F-16I aircraft that can reach Iran. Four years ago the IAF was emphatic and very confident that they were ready to go, in attacking Iran AND go it alone. A quote from them: Dec 2008
"It is always better to coordinate," one top Defense Ministry official explained last week. "But we are also preparing options that do not include coordination."

Iran most likely already has nukes. You don’t just make one. Iran financed the Syrian nuke plant, that had who helping them? NK. Iran sent their scientists four years ago to NK, to witness their launches, and learn.
As for Irans threat to send ships to launch EMPs over the U.S.? I believe that one has a good possibility.They are in South America, along with Hezbollah of all people. In addition, the U.S. Intelligence reported this very scenario to the House Armed Services Committee in 2008. They connected the dots, and factually stated that Iran was testing.
From 2008
"U.S. Intel: Iran Plans Nuclear Strike on U.S"
“One group of tests that troubled Graham, the former White House science adviser under President Ronald Reagan, were successful efforts to launch a Scud missile from a platform in the Caspian Sea.
“They’ve got [test] ranges in Iran which are more than long enough to handle Scud launches and even Shahab-3 launches,” Dr. Graham said. “Why would they be launching from the surface of the Caspian Sea? They obviously have not explained that to us.”Another troubling group of tests involved Shahab-3 launches where the Iranians "detonated the warhead near apogee, not over the target area where the thing would eventually land, but at altitude,” Graham said. “Why would they do that?”

Now Bibi is dealing with leaks at an extremely high level meeting. No matter the Holiday, no matter the Election, if Israel’s superb intelligence brings threatening news, Israel without question will act, regardless of anything. Their very lives depend on it…

ChristineInCleveland said...

That's what I think, Mrs. C! My money is on Israel acting way BEFORE the election!

Helen said...

Thank you so much for this information. I hope you are right. I get so upset if I think Bibi is trusting O in ANYTHING.

The British firm Oxitec is in the process of seeking approval in the US for a mosquito that has

been genetically engineered.

Untested, bio-engineered mosquitoes will likely be released in the Florida Keys.
(part of agenda21?)

Ally said...

Anon-this is old news. Sorry but geneticlly modified mosquitos have already been released there. This might be another variety though and its very good to keep an eye out for stuff like this. These are the things that enough locals can influence the decision of a community and posdible stop the release.
Mrs. C, Bibi is a lot smarter than ours, if you know what I mean! While Obobble is quite the used car salesman and used to slick willy ing his way around the lot, this time, the customer isn't buying. Lol! Bibi is going to write his own deal.
I'm guessing that good old dependable Bibi is going to jerk the rug right out from under obobblehead! Kinda quick like, remember the old remove the tablecloth while leaving the dishes intact move. Really, what desire does he have to see our current guy in for a second round? While old mittens is his long time buddy?
My crazy old lady thinking says "rocktober" if not before.
Lets see tell the Useless Nations what you want. Get on plane, go home and get final touchess done. Wait for the snakes to do their lunch and get back to their appointed spots n ka booms.
we shall see. I dint want to see war but its inevitable I'm afraid :(

what to make of all the so called 'deal' news, but i will say this.

Iran probably has 8 to 10 nukes already but has kept it well
past 6 NOV, then FOR SURE we have
a new nuclear power in the M E...




I know that Obama LOVES to pacify
Wall Street PIG bulls.....

and hold up stocks

that is what this is all about.

of course, that is TRUE for all
USA presidents, to PACIFY Wall
Street......and yet, stocks will
crash.......NO ONE CAN STOP THAT.

foolish enough to allow Iran to be
a nuclear power......but I am afraid
that Israel will ALLOW themselves to
be manipulated by Obama to PACIFY BULLS......

i hope not.....

but it would appear that this WILL
be the case.......

so that humans can keep up their
GREEDY BULL GAMES in stocks...if I
were Israel I would tell bulls to
go to HELL in a hand basket...

no WAY would I gamble a nation's security to pacify man's endless
BULL greed way....

Geepers, a few more of these orders and they will be at a nice little number.....enough hollow point ammo to shoot each and every American, woman, and child...3 times.

Ever wonder about that. The hollow point is so devastating its outlawed by the Geneva Convention. Too violent for war, but ok for Obama subjects.

Caver said...

Whwieee Doggie; Bibi is fit to be tied. Now, this is how to handle security leaks.

"Netanyahu considering polygraph tests for cabinet"

"Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is considering polygraph tests for all participants at Tuesday's security cabinet meeting to find the source of a leak that he said was making holding sensitive discussions impossible."

WVBORN56 said...

I know sin is sin but betrayal in human terms seems to be one of the worst or most painful. If any one could root out the turncoat it would be Bibi.

Ally said...

Bibi is smart! I bet the only thing Bibi and Putin agreed on was their opinion of Obummer! Onte of those odd moments that I would have loved to be present.
Oooo I wouldnt want to be the loose lips for that meeting. Maybe they should leave their phones in a basket outside the door like the motorcyclists do! So people cant hack em and listen to the meeting.
Caver-i know you "know" some people! My peeps speculate the hollow pointy things are being stored for our frenemies to use against us. Sadly, I concur.
but.....God for us, who could be against us?
Please guys, will even one of you guys fast and pray with me (im just skipping one meal a day, I know im a wimp) for 40 days? Sept 28 until election day. Please!
I feel like every believer in America needs to do it!
