The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

  • It's sad that people have to make a living selling their soul to the devil. The latest news from Israel is that students are being recruited to become sales persons for the Israeli fascist state. In a declining economy people are pushed to do things they might not normally wish to do. It's becoming more important than ever to be very discerning about what you read and hear.

The National Union of Israeli Students (NUIS) has become a full-time partner in the Israeli government’s efforts to spread its propaganda online and on college campuses around the world.

NUIS has launched a program to pay Israeli university students $2,000 to spread pro-Israel propaganda online for 5 hours per week from the “comfort of home.”

The union is also partnering with Israel’s Jewish Agency to send Israeli students as missionaries to spread propaganda in other countries, for which they will also receive a stipend.

This active recruitment of Israeli students is part of Israel’s orchestrated effort to suppress the Palestinian solidarity movement under the guise of combating “delegitimization” of Israel and anti-Semitism.

The involvement of the official Israeli student union as well as Haifa University, Tel Aviv University, Ben-Gurion University and Sapir College in these state propaganda programs will likely bolster Palestinian calls for the international boycott of Israeli academic institutions.

  • The Obama team has decided to send a couple thousand U.S. troops to Israel in the next few months. The Jerusalem Post quotes U.S. Lt. Gen. Frank Gorenc, Commander of the Third Air Force based in Germany, saying it will not be just an "exercise" but a full "deployment". The U.S. is reportedly bringing its THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) and ship-based Aegis ballistic "missile defense" systems to Israel. The U.S. forces will integrate with Israeli missile defense systems like the Patriot and Arrow. What is most important about these "exercises" is that these systems are the "shield" that can be used to pick-off Iranian retaliatory missile strikes after a U.S.-Israel first strike attack. I find it highly unlikely that Iran will launch an attack on Israel unless first provoked. But if the U.S. and Israel, who are already running covert sabotage operations inside Iran, do launch a first-strike attack on Iranian nuclear facilities then Iran will have to respond. At that point these so-called "missile defense" systems would be used as the shield.
  • I have long believed that the U.S. and Israel will some day attack Iran. It's insane but since when has that stopped the oligarchy from starting trouble? The U.S. now has Iran surrounded. U.S., British and French oil companies want control of Iran's resources. They are poking a sharp stick at Tehran and are trying to draw a reaction. At some point they are likely to get one and Holy Hell will break loose. Russia and China don't want to see Iran taken down so they could get dragged into all this. The U.S. and Israel are playing with fire.
