The concept of a psc'd Romney on a stripper pole is too horrible to comprehend.
* IIRC TOPIX, DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > SAUDI STRUGGLE AGZ IRAN LIKELY TO GET WORSE.
Little to no hope of Diplomatic or Peaceful rapprochement, solution in near-term - IN THE STRUGGLE FOR OWG/GLOBAL CALIPHATE, + "SOLE" DEFENDER OF THE FAITH + MUSLIM HOLY PLACES, THE KSA + IRAN ARE LIKELY IN IT TO THE DEATH DESPITE CONTRAY POL RHETORIC ANDOR PERIODS OF INTERIM PEACE???
["HIGHLANDER" - THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE here].
* BHARAT RAKSHAK > SAUDI SUPPORT FOR SYRIA REBELS [strongly] SHAPED BY TRIBAL [Ethnic]], RELIGIOUS TIES. Ditto as per for many 000's of Kuwaitis + Qataris.
* WAFF > [MEMRI TV = Video] EGYPTIAN CLERIC SAFWAT HAGAZI: "ONE OF THE TENETS OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ... IS THE ISLAMIC CALIPHATE + RULING THE WORLD ... THE DAY WILL COME WHEN WE WILL BE MASTERS OF THE WORLD".
Oh Rly, + widout the Boy also???
Lest we fergit,
RENSE > WORLD MAY BE FORCED TO GO/BECOME VEGETARIAN BY 2050.
Besides both Muslim + non-Muslims in future time being potens forced to EXISTENTIALLY wear the Burqua = Islamo-Arab style dress/fashions as due to GWCC = Pert-forecasted intensification of Global Temperatures [Solar activities]???
Is it just me, or does anyone else suddenly have the urge to rent out Sly Stallone's "THE DEMOLITION MAN", where every restaurant in future LA is a TACO BELL, + everyone wears a Cap-n-Frock???
* RENSE > ""PEAK OIL" POSTPONED FOR A DECADE OR TWO | [Telegraph.UK] "PEAK CHEAP OIL" AN INCONTROVERTIBLE FACT.
Year 2040 or so - when our desired future OWG that no American + Amerikan has voted for asof 2012 may formally declare "fracking" a CRIME AGZ HUMANITY + CRIME AGZ PLANET/EARTH???
ARTIC > Oil Prices continue to rise as output in the North Sea + Gulf of Mexico continues to steadily decline, Oil Industry "as is" cannot + will not satisfy chronic demand.
IIUC, IOW "SHALE OIL" + LNG = WORLD IS OUT OR RUNNING LOW ON "CHEAP DEEP OIL/DEEP OIL", + as per the so-called "Biotic Oil" Theory our desired future OWG-NWO Govts, Perts can't agree on how fast Mother Earth can or does successfully replenish its natual "Cheap Deep Oil/Deep Oil" reservoirs.
ARTIC > NEW STRATEGEERY = based on LIMITED COUNTER-OFFENSIVES + PRAGMATISM, NOT RELIGIOUS FERVOR. Prolly safe to say also INTEL + not-a-few Precision Strikes vee LRBMS.
IIUC, IMO this new Mil Strategy is consistent wid Iran's desire to restrict or isolate USN Nuclear CVNS + Gator Boyz to outside the Persian Gulf, i.e. in the Sea of Oman, Arabian Gulf, + beyond ASAP AMAP ALAP where destructive LR Air, Missle attacks [Conventional, or Nuclear?] can be effec conducted by Iran agz same widout Iran having to detonate Nukes-WMDS ON ITS OWN SOIL TO DEFEAT A US OR US-NATO LED GROUND INVASION.
It also explains Iran's prideful announcement that it can quickly produce large numbers of powerful Tactical BMS - read. anti-US Coastal + Beachead attacks.
Iran's plan is not to win agz a US or US-led ground invasion, but mainly "TO NOT LOSE", I.E. TO CAUSE SUCH CASUALTIES OR LOSSES AMONGST INVADING US-ALLIED MILFORS, ASSETS THAT A NERVOUS US MAINSTREAM, INFLUENTIAL ANTI-WAR ACTIVISTS, + US CONGRESSCRITTERS, ETAL. WILL DEMAND AN END TO HIGH-CASUALTY GROUND COMBAT + FORCE A RECALL OF US TROOPS BACK TO CONUS.
