"Romney's remarks totally neglect historical facts and are actually irresponsible if he just meant to appeal to voters at home," it added, saying, "The ...

Post Date: 2012-07-31 12:21:22 by Brian S
7/31/2012 05:38 AM RESIZE: AAA Print Has Mitt Romney given Israel a blank check for war? So it seemed from the declaration in Jerusalem by his adviser Dan Senor, who all but flashed Israel a green light for war, signaling the Israelis that, if you go, Mitts got your back: If Israel has to take action on its own in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision. No option would be excluded. Gov. Romney recognizes Israels right to defend itself and that it is right for America to stand with it. What does stand with Israel, if she launches a surprise attack on Iran, mean? Does it mean the United ...

Romney's Foreign Policy Advisors: Architects Of The Fiasco That Made Iraq The Close Ally Of Iran
Post Date: 2012-07-26 12:07:32 by Brian S
The invasion of Iraq overthrew Iran's most lethal enemy and replaced it with a regime that is now Iran's closest and most reliable ally. Depressingly, Mitt Romney has chosen the architects of this massive strategic fiasco as his principal advisors. A recent profile of Colin Powell described his growing concern about Romney's disturbingly narrow range of foreign policy advisors. As the article noted: Romney's team of about 40 foreign policy advisers includes many who hail from the neoconservative wing of the party...Many were enthusiastic supporters of the Iraq War, and many are proponents of a U.S. or Israeli attack on Iran.

Post Date: 2012-07-25 12:02:47 by Brian S
(CNSNews.com) For the second time in less than a year, Irans top naval commander has said Iranian Navy vessels will soon be plying the Atlantic Ocean, having made great strides in recent years in expanding its presence beyond Iranian waters. Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyaris comments came on the same day Iran launched its first domestically-built oil tanker. The 21,000-ton vessel, capable of carrying up to 750,000 barrels of oil, was ordered by Venezuela, and Sayyaris remarks raise the possibility that a warship may escort the tanker on its delivery sailing to Irans Latin American ally. Iran has also established close ties with Cuba, another potential ...
Amid Syria Chaos, Israelis Seek Gas Masks
Post Date: 2012-07-25 11:39:44 by Brian S
Israeli gas mask kit distribution centers are facing increased demand in response to fighting in Syria. Maariv and the Times of Israel reported that distribution centers have given out 3,700 masks per day on Monday and Tuesday, and 4.2 million total. Haaretz reported, however, that 47 percent of Israel is still without masks. On average, since 2010, the distribution centers have given out 2,200 kits per day. The increased demand comes as Israeli leaders fear that Syrian chemical weapons could fall into the hands of Hebollah, a terrorist group in southern Lebanon. Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Tuesday that the transfer of such weapons would be a clear casus ...
Syria Says Will Use Chemical Weapons If Attacked
Post Date: 2012-07-23 12:30:34 by Brian S
BEIRUT (AP) -- The Syrian regime threatened Monday to use its chemical and biological weapons in case of a foreign attack, in its first ever acknowledgement that it possesses weapons of mass destruction. Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi stressed, however, that Damascus would not use its unconventional arms against its own citizens. The announcement comes as Syria faces international isolation, a tenacious rebellion that has left at least 19,000 people dead and threats by Israel to attack to prevent such weapons from falling into rebel hands. The timing, however, of Syria's decision to reveal the long suspected existence of its chemical weapons suggests a desperate regime ...

The Navy is investigating the incident as details continue to emerge. A Navy official said the offending vessel was a white pleasure craft, but a ...

Post Date: 2012-07-11 12:02:05 by Brian S
MOSCOW Russia said on Tuesday that it had dispatched a flotilla of 11 warships to the eastern Mediterranean, some of which would dock in Syria. It would be the largest display of Russian military power in the region since the Syrian conflict began almost 17 months ago. Nearly half of the ships were capable of carrying hundreds of marines. The announcement appeared intended to punctuate Russias effort to position itself as an increasingly decisive broker in resolving the antigovernment uprising in Syria, Russias last ally in the Middle East and home to Tartus, its only foreign military base outside the former Soviet Union. The announcement also came a day after Russia ...

WASHINGTON Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former top commander of international forces in Afghanistan, said this week that the United States should bring back the draft if it ever goes to war again. "I think we ought to have a draft. I think if a nation goes to war, it shouldn't be solely be represented by a professional force, because it gets to be unrepresentative of the population," McChrystal said at a late-night event June 29 at the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival. "I think if a nation goes to war, every town, every city needs to be at risk. You make that decision and everybody has skin in the game." He argued that the burdens of the wars in Iraq and ...

(Reuters) - A U.S. navy ship that had been slated for decommissioning has been sent instead to the Gulf to help mine-clearing operations, the U.S. Fifth Fleet based in Bahrain said, the latest move in a gradual U.S. build-up as tensions with Iran smoulder. A fleet spokesman in Manama said the USS Ponce, described as a "afloat forward staging base" (AFSB), had arrived on Thursday after undergoing refitting for its new mission. "Ponce's primary mission is to support mine countermeasures operations and other missions, such as the ability to provide repair service to other deployed units," the spokesman said in a statement. "Additionally, Ponce also has the ...

Post Date: 2012-07-08 13:14:04 by Brian S
Two Russian strategic nuclear bombers entered the U.S. air defense zone near the Pacific coast on Wednesday and were met by U.S. interceptor jets, defense officials told the Free Beacon. It was the second time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable bombers into the 200-mile zone surrounding U.S. territory in the past two weeks. An earlier intrusion by two Tu-95 Bear H bombers took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games that a Russian military spokesman said included simulated attacks on enemy air defenses and strategic facilities. A defense official said the Pacific coast intrusion came close to the U.S. coast but did not enter the 12-mile area that the U.S. military ...
Buchanan: Why This Obsession With Iran?
Post Date: 2012-07-06 11:21:22 by Brian S
Iran is not seeking to have the atomic bomb, possession of which is pointless, dangerous and is a great sin from an intellectual and a religious point of view. Thus did supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declare in February that Irans possession of atomic weapons would be a mortal sin against Allah. It is also the unanimous judgment of the U.S. intelligence community, declared in 2007 and affirmed in 2011, that Iran has abandoned any program to build nuclear weapons. Is the Ayatollah lying? Is the entire U.S. intel community wrong? Irans plants, at Natanz, where uranium is enriched to 5 percent, and at Fordow, where it is enriched to 20 percent both ...

Hot Air Day is upon us.

Tea Party Leader Calls For ‘Insurrection’ Against Obamacare
Post Date: 2012-06-30 12:32:54 by Brian S
Numerous Republicans have expressed discontent with the Supreme Courts upholding of the Affordable Care Act, but it took a Tea Party leader to imply that the decision could justify a new Civil War. Mississippi Tea Party Chairman Roy Nicholson posted a statement at his groups website on Friday proclaiming that the US Supreme Court has joined with the Executive and Legislative branches of the federal government in abandoning the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and with that ruling abandoned the People. The all out oppression of all people has begun, Nicholson continued. In such cases submission is treason. Treason against the Constitution and the ...

Post Date: 2012-06-29 21:01:10 by Brian S
GENEVA The United States and Russia failed on Friday to bridge differences over a plan to ease Syrian President Bashar Assad out of power, end violence and create a new government. That set the stage for the potential collapse of a key multinational conference that was to have endorsed the proposal. On the eve of Saturdays conference, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met one-on-one for about an hour in St. Petersburg, Russia, but could not reach agreement on key elements of U.N. envoy Kofi Annans proposed plan for a Syrian political transition, officials said.

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov were heading for a face-to-face showdown over Syria on Friday as major powers prepared for a weekend conference to hash out a political transition plan for the country. On the eve of Saturday's conference aimed at ending 16 months of brutal violence in Syria, Clinton and Lavrov were to meet in St. Petersburg in a bid to iron out deep differences over the transition plan being pushed by U.N. envoy Kofi Annan that calls for the formation of a national unity government that would oversee the drafting of a new constitution and elections. U.S. officials are adamant that ...

Post Date: 2012-06-27 12:23:27 by Brian S
Russian strategic nuclear bombers threatened U.S. airspace near Alaska earlier this month and F-15 jets responded by intercepting the aircraft taking part in large-scale arctic war games, according to defense officials. The Russian war games began the same day President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a frosty summit meeting in Mexico June 18. U.S. officials said the arctic exercises over the Russian Far East and Pacific appeared to be a further sign of Russias hardening posture toward the United States. The Obama administration made no protest of the bomber intrusions, according to the officials, in line with its conciliatory reset policy of seeking ...
Iran Warns: If Israel Attacks, Israel Will Be Destroyed
Post Date: 2012-06-24 15:09:05 by Brian S
Negotiations between world powers and Iran wrapped up in Moscow with no resolution, and a high-ranking Iranian general has sent a strong warning to Israel on possible attacks. While Israel and its Western allies suspect that Tehran is enriching uranium and is seeking to create nuclear warheads, many Western experts say this is not the case. Despite this, Tel Aviv has repeatedly stated that it will bomb Iranian nuclear facilities to prevent the construction of nuclear weapons. Iran, on the other hand, insists that it needs enriched uranium for civilian uses, including medicine. Last week, nuclear talks between Iran and world powers in Moscow failed to meet any resolution, which has ...

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A ship carrying Russian helicopters to Syria, which turned back after its insurance was cut, is expected to resume its journey accompanied by at least one other vessel, Interfax reported on Sunday, citing a military source. The report is likely to reignite international criticism of Russia's arms deliveries to Syria which U.S. officials have called reprehensible and the Arab League has said should be stopped. "A military-diplomatic source in Moscow told Interfax that (the ship) will go from Murmansk to Syria. According to his information the ship should travel under escort," the news agency reported.

MOSCOW Russias foreign minister said Friday that Iran shouldnt face threats over its nuclear program and that a quick settlement of the standoff over it isnt realistic. Sergey Lavrov said the latest round of talks in Moscow this week between six world powers and Iran has been quite useful, even though there was no breakthrough. He said talks must continue without any artificial deadlines or ultimatums. Iran insists its uranium enrichment program serves only civilian purposes, but the U.S., Israel and others suspect its a cover for building nuclear weapons. Israel has accused Iran of stretching out the talks to move closer to the ...

Post Date: 2012-06-22 20:33:26 by Brian S
IGORA, Leningrad region, June 22 (Itar-Tass) Moscow will respond to the possible deployment of NATO attack missiles in Finland, President Vladimir Putin said on Friday. The involvement of any country in a military bloc deprives it of a certain degree of sovereignty, and some decisions are made at a different level, he said. If the deployment of attack missiles is approved, the response will follow. Finland may say that it is a decision of NATO, but Russia will respond just the same. Do we need that? he wondered.
