Syrian President Assad Accepts Resignation Of Government

Just headlines for now. Unclear what prompted the move, and whether this
will embolden the discontents to push even harder for a full regime
overhaul.

More as we get it.

Indeed they are. There is a play-book, they have it, but the map is now pretty damn obvious.

Syria is a huge one. When they push it over, it will take the ME with it (Iran, SA... all distractions).

Thanks for the broad brush smack-down hol.

Of course the 33rd runs right through it (the map you linked to) and given that most history is fake, reality is maya (illusion) and reason is currently perverted, I'll take the present, eyes wide open for patterns.

Obama still faces questions about why Libya and not Yemen, or not Syria. One of his closest national security advisers, Denis McDonough, told reporters Monday that the administration doesn't "get very hung up on this question of precedent."
 

"We don't make decisions about questions like intervention based on consistency or precedent," McDonough said.

Well this is going the same way as ...Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen...one more domino to go...the top man falls!! Then all Hell breaks lose... as the noose closes around Saudi-Iran confrontation... with Israel looking on, dying to jump in!!

Syria, under Assad, is the game maker in Lebanon and shiite Hezbollah partner. If Assad falls Iran steps in more both in Bahrein and destabilized Lebanon/Syria. You can see the Sunni Wahabbites climbing up onto their tent poles as their rage against Shiite Ayatollah hold in Sunni lands grows. Pour oil on that, you light up the ME OIL patch....

I believe we will see a united Islamic front attacking Israel.  I think that is what is setting up to happen.  Egypt without Mubarack will not be a friend to Israel.  Iran and Saudi will put aside their differences(albeit temporarily) and unite with Iraq, Eqypt, Turkey, Syria, Libya and Jordan to come against Israel.

By the way...there is no oil in Israel...just intelligent jewish folk, admittedly very selective and part of 51 state USA,  and some palestinian...workers...lots of stones...and some good arable land...not much to wage a war for. Unless it's to stop them from preempting...But that's gonna be very costly...they are die-hards!

don't forget the religious zealot aspect of this.....(on both sides) It has already been costly for the palestinians but yet there is no peace.  So what reasonable people see as not much to wager war over domatic religious idealogues can see nothing else.

There's peace inside Israel, the great majority of the time.   All the war making occurs around Israel's shitty nutjob periphery. Before they walled themselves off from it, Israel was getting a lot of suicide attacks.    Naturally from time to time they respond to rocket attacks and the like, or interdict boats full of weapons, but again that occurs outside of Isreal mostly.

You should read Deuteronomy. It's all war and killing. And telling you how to live.

Chapter 3:

  1. Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
  2. And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.
  3. So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.

Chapter 5 you all know:

11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.

13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work

etc, etc

Serious stuff that churches talk about all the time. Apart from the killing bit. Oh, and this:

Chapter 23

1 He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD.

Tough luck there.

Do you know your Daddy?

2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.

There's also some fashion advice in Chapter 22:

11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

So be careful - the punishment isn't made clear.

But, to sum up. Oxymoronic holy war? Nope. Go ask a priest. He'll tell you the truth. Honestly.

The Iranian military has very strong presence in Syria, and Mocta el Sadr's militia is on the way to 'help'. I can easily see a theocratic state replacing Assad's secular state. This isn't a CIA plan, or a Mossad plan - it is a KGB plan. Israel is about to be completely surrounded by states with millions of willing, eager martyrs at their disposal ( pun intended). First the missles, then the gas, then the waves of martyrs and voila - Israel is 'pushed into the sea' as has been the plan all along. Question is - at what point do the Isrealis decide 'fuck it' and start tossing nukes around.

My humble feeling is that the Iranian theocracy will cave in, implode,  before it can take off in other regions. Unless the West fuels the instability equation, instead of cooling it on a hands-off, neutral, secular basis. Naturally, that is an idealized view of things, as the OIL patch is anything but a rational region of the world. Its making a monkey out of the 'best and the brightest', like Vietnam did in its day. Greed does the rest; as Sauron's dark, oily ring is so precious...

Hello, my name is Joe Biden and I an here to save the world........

Hopefully Obama dosn't take it personally and get trigger happy with the nukes.  That's the we operate.  Even Presidents get used and abused and killed.  Dont take it personally. You had a good run. Sounds like you had fun to, in those bath houases in Chicago, with Rahm. Shit, maybe Rahm could give you some city admin job, when he becomes mayor.

From wikipedia, Age of Kali:

some of the attributes of Kali Yuga:

In relation to rulers
  • Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly.
  • Rulers will no longer see it as their duty to promote spirituality, or to protect their subjects: they will become a danger to the world.
  • People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source.
In human relationships
  • Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other.
  • Ignorance of dharma will occur.
  • People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
  • Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
  • Sin will increase exponentially, whilst virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
  • People will take vows and break them soon after.
  • People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
  • Men will find their jobs stressful and will go to retreats to escape their work.
  • Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings. Brahmins will not be learned or honoured, Kshatriyas will not be brave, Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings and Shudras will not be honest and humble in their duties and to the other castes.

    And those Libyan rebels been busy! Already established a new national oil and central bank. From Bloomberg:

     

    Libyan rebels in Benghazi said they have created a new national oil company to replace the corporation controlled by leader Muammar Qaddafi whose assets were frozen by the United Nations Security Council.


    The Transitional National Council released a statement announcing the decision made at a March 19 meeting to establish the “Libyan Oil Company as supervisory authority on oil production and policies in the country, based temporarily in Benghazi, and the appointment of an interim director general” of the company.


     

    The Council also said it “designated the Central Bank of Benghazi as a monetary authority competent in monetary policies in Libya and the appointment of a governor to the Central Bank of Libya, with a temporary headquarters in Benghazi.”
