  1. Marching steadily to sectarian war in the M.E.

    Syria: Jihadist Rebels Threaten To Attack Hezbollah Inside Lebanon…


    The Sunni/Shiite conflict is heating up and spreading. $200 oil here we come…

    Note the $20 spread between WTI and Brent supplied crude oil. http://www.bloomberg.com/energy/ Soon Mexico, Canada and the US are going to be supplying more than enough oil to meet our own needs. The price differential will see to that.

  2. Apparently the company of so-called Republicans Linda and Vince McMahon is now featuring a storyline and characters the mocks and demonizes Tea Party conservatives as racist and evil.


    What the hell brought this crap on? Is this Linda’s revenge for the Tea Party not supporting her run for Senate enough or something? Yup, looks like she is what I thought she was, a huge phony.

    And hey Vince, if you dislike Obama so much, why are you using his propaganda and opposition research against those who oppose him? You are a phony too.

    And get this, a few years back during a storyline, Vince praised the Occupy Movement on WWE TV by stating “they are standing up for what they believe in” or some such. Unbelievable.

  3. Syrian Islamists meet Hizballah head-on – take in arms from Bosnia, Kosovo


    Contrary to reports of Hizballah attacks on villages in the Homs region, the thousand Hizballah militiamen have moved in to defend the predominantly Shiite villages of the area whose population is loyal to Bashar Assad. They are there to relieve the Syrian army of the burden of defending these Shiites against rebel attack.

    Hizballah has also undertaken to guard Shiite holy shrines in Syria…
