Russia Expects US/Israel Attack this Summer

It's a matter of time before the U.S. strategy of "divide and arm" opens new markets for American branded global corporations and gets the West's hands on valuable energy reserves.  The Worldwide Socialist Web Site believes it will be summer.

I have my doubts, as this would be inconvenient for the U.S. Presidential Election.  War, or its escalation, tends to occur outside engorged election campaigns.  . 

I've been wrong before and expect to be again.  Maybe someone will leak the game plan from the upcoming Bilderberg meeting.  Rumors have it back in Chantilly, Virginia.  Four years ago candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton paid fealty to Bilderberg's King and Queen makers.  Who will rise from Chantilly 2012?

Update 5-17-12:  The plan is ready.  The U.S. will provide an additional $70 million for Israel's short range missile defense system, known as Iron Dome.  Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak called negotiations ridiculous if they allow Iran to retain something yet to be proven, a "military nuclear program."

Update 9-26-12:  U.S. to go to war with Iran in 2013, according to ex-Ambassador to Israel.

Holocaust Remembrance Day

Washington D.C. was the site of Holocaust Remembrance Day activities.  American and Israeli leaders joined to recall the horror of Hitler's extermination program.

President Barack Obama
Treasury Chief Tim Geithner
House Majority Leader John Boehner
Pentagon Chief Leon Panetta

Israeli Ambassador to United States Michael Oren
Defense Minister Ehud Barak

I found it odd that this group didn't travel to Europe and remember the Holocaust from Dachau, Auschwitz, or Treblinka.  No, they gathered in the U.S. Capital, the epicenter of world power and greed. 

Talk turned to war to prevent a "Second Holocaust."

Israel’s US envoy called on the world Thursday to prevent Iran from perpetrating another Holocaust.
It doesn't get more explicit than that.  America and Israel march hand in hand toward war.

Note:  Israel denied pensions to 2,000 survivors of Nazi persecution, making the announcement on Holocaust Remembrance Day.  That calls into question Geithner's words from his speech, "The world is indeed a complicated place. But our basic responsibilities as human beings are not. Protect the weak. Shelter those in need. Resist evil in all its forms."  Strike through protect the weak...

Update 4-23-12:  President Obama announced increased Iranian sanctions from America's Holocaust Museum.

Iran Concerns Leak Beyond Nuclear to Chemical

Haaretz reported:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan revealed that Turkey stopped an Iranian shipment carrying Turkish chemicals to Syria. When asked for an explanation, Iran claimed that the chemicals being shipped to Syria were for agricultural purposes. Edrogan said in response: “But we know that it is possible to make chemical weapons out of materials meant for agriculture.” 
This news story would have me believe an Iranian ship loaded chemicals in Turkey for transport to Syria.  Did Turkish officials seize the ship?  Who's out the money for the shipment, Iranians, Syrians or the Turkish chemical producers?

Which Turkish chemical company reached the deal with Syria?  Who hired the Iranian shipper?  Who might benefit from a seized Iranian chemical tanker?

The shift of Western concern to chemical weapons feels orchestrated, especially since the story came out of a 70+ nation "Friends of Syria" group.

Update 4-7-12:  Iran and Syria remain high on the list for Western tampering.   A round of Holy Week restraint on war feels fake, especially when leaders and the media offer the usual Al Qaeda threat.
