Res. 758. In the article Dr. Paul explains the purpose of the resolution. It’s not a new law but provides a basis of facts that will be relied on for future action. So essentially the resolution purports that Russia behaved badly in various ways and by way of signing H.

Sectarianism comes back to bite Saudi Arabia. Saudi Shiite protesters take part in a demonstration against the death sentence on prominent Saudi Shiite cleric and anti-government protest leader Nimr al-Nimr in the village of Awamiyah, in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, on Oct. 24.
(STRSTR/AFP/Getty Images) On Oct. 15, Nimr al-Nimr, a Saudi Arabian Shiite cleric, was sentenced to death by the Special Criminal Court in Riyadh. Since 2011, Nimr has become the figurehead of a protest movement centered in eastern Saudi Arabia that has been largely denied coverage by mainstream media. The sentencing has implications far beyond Nimr’s personal fate. "Brink" of a New Cold War? Another Cold War Already Started? Is McCain Brain Dead?
Govt., Hizbullah Working to Curb Street Anger as Mashnouq Says Captive Soldiers' Case 'Will Take Time' Contacts are ongoing between the government and the Hizbullah leadership in order to contain the tensions on the street in light of the demonstrations staged in protest against the murder of soldier Abbas Medlej at the hands of his Islamist captors over the weekend, reported As Safir newspaper on Monday.

The talks included Hussein Khalil, Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's aide, and Wafiq Safa, the party's liaison and coordination officer.

"Sept 11 was good for Israel." Netanyahu suggests pinning ISIS against Iran. WASHINGTON -- Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu waxed broadly of a Middle East in turmoil on Sunday, in his first public comments on the threat posed to the region by ISIS, a terrorist militia conquering swaths of territory in eastern Syria and northern Iraq.
Threatening a borderless conflict between "extremist Shi'ites," funded by leadership of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and equally extreme Sunnis— a soft "alliance" between ISIS and al Qaeda— the Israeli prime minister suggested the United States should largely stay out of the fight, and instead allow the parties to weaken one another. "Don't strengthen either of them. Weaken both," Netanyahu said. As US President Barack Obama weighs precise air strikes against the Sunni terrorist group, which seeks to establish an Islamic caliphate across Iraq and the antiquated al-Sham lands, Netanyahu declined to comment on the wisdom of direct intervention.

How far is Saudi Arabia complicit in the Isis takeover of much of northern Iraq, and is it stoking an escalating Sunni-Shia conflict across the Islamic world?
Some time before 9/11, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, once the powerful Saudi ambassador in Washington and head of Saudi intelligence until a few months ago, had a revealing and ominous conversation with the head of the British Secret Intelligence Service, MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove. Prince Bandar told him: "The time is not far off in the Middle East, Richard, when it will be literally 'God help the Shia'. More than a billion Sunnis have simply had enough of them. " A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties, by Oded Yinon, translated by Israel Shahak. By Oded Yinon (with a foreword by, and translated by Israel Shahak) Foreword The following essay represents, in my opinion, the accurate and detailed plan of the present Zionist regime (of Sharon and Eitan) for the Middle East which is based on the division of the whole area into small states, and the dissolution of all the existing Arab states.
I will comment on the military aspect of this plan in a concluding note. Here I want to draw the attention of the readers to several important points: 1. 2. 3.

Photo RIFFA, Bahrain — Black and yellow concrete barricades block the roads entering this wealthy Sunni enclave, where foreign-born Sunni soldiers in armored personnel carriers guard the mansions of the ruling family and the business elite.
Beyond the enclave are impoverished villages of Shiites, about 70 percent of Bahrain’s more than 650,000 citizens, where the police skirmish nightly with young men wielding rocks and, increasingly, improvised weapons like homemade guns that use fire extinguishers to shoot rebar. Their battles are an extension of sectarian hostilities nearly as old as Islam.
Netanyahu Endorses ISIS Invasion of Iran. Wie zijn er schuldig aan de crisis in Irak? De een-na grootste stad van Irak, Mosul, is in handen van ISIS, de terreurorganisatie die zelf te extreem is voor al Qaida.
ISIS staat vrij vertaald voor de Islamitische Staat in Irak en Syrië en heeft nu grote delen van beide landen in haar bezit. Hebben de meedogenloze strijders van ISIS nu bereikt waar Osama bin Laden alleen van kon dromen: een kalifaat tussen de Eufraat en de Tigris? En wie zijn de schuldigen dat het zover heeft kunnen komen? Binnen een week tijd hebben enkele duizenden Jihadisten een stad drie maal zo groot als Amsterdam ingenomen. Het door de Amerikanen getrainde en bewapende Iraakse leger droop met de staart tussen de benen af: sommige soldaten trokken uit paniek hun uniformen uit en zochten in burgerkleding een veiliger heenkomen.
Blunders Dat het zover heeft kunnen komen is deels te verklaren door de matige slagkracht van het Iraakse leger. De belangrijkste reden voor de opmars van de Jihadisten zijn echter structureel van aard. Like this: Like Loading... Farsnews. Us-trains-african-commandos-to-fight-terrorism.

Pierre Omidyar co-funded Ukraine revolution groups with US government, documents show. By Mark Ames On February 28, 2014 Just hours after last weekend’s ouster of Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, one of Pierre Omidyar’s newest hires at national security blog “The Intercept,” was already digging for the truth. Marcy Wheeler, who is the new site’s “senior policy analyst,” speculated that the Ukraine revolution was likely a “coup” engineered by “deep” forces on behalf of “Pax Americana”: “There’s quite a bit of evidence of coup-ness. Q is how many levels deep interference from both sides is.” These are serious claims.
Wheeler is partly correct. Poland as the ‘Slavic Turkey’ of NATO Destabilization. Polish minister of Foreign Affairs, Radek Sikorski, with the three main ukrainian opposition leaders, in Kiev. Prime Minister Tusk stated on 20 February, 2014 that Poland is already treating the injured insurgents from Kiev, and has actually ordered the military and interior ministry to provide hospitals to help even more . The deputy health minister has confirmed that Warsaw is in contact with the rebels in Kiev “in making plans to take in Ukrainian wounded”.This means that Poland has formally extended its covert and diplomatic reach nearly 300 miles into the interior of Ukraine, and that its intelligence services are obviously doing more in Ukraine than just ‘helping the wounded’ (terrorists). It is even more likely that Polish influence is even stronger in Lviv and Volyn Oblasts, the regions bordering Poland, and coincidentally or not, Lviv has already attempted to declare independence.
The Middle East & then the World. Globalist blitzkrieg signals largest geopolitical reordering since WW2. analysis by Tony Cartalucci Beginning in North Africa, now unfolding in the Middle East and Iran, and soon to spread to Eastern Europe and Asia, the globalist fueled color revolutions are attempting to profoundly transform entire regions of the planet in one sweeping move. It is an ambitious gambit, perhaps even one born of desperation, with the globalists' depravity and betrayal on full display to the world with no opportunity to turn back now. To understand the globalists' reasoning behind such a bold move, it helps to understand their ultimate end game and the obstacles standing between them and their achieving it.
