    Yes the Yidsters are out in force on that one. They might be perfectly programmed bots too. You never know with those crazy Joo’s.

    I noticed all those posters from the US were hopelessly ill informed. This one from Tina was the funniest

    just try it !!!
    the only reason they think they can attack US targets is because the Russians are backing them. because russia needs Irans oil. but nothing will stop the US if they attack anything that we have. we will crush you like the bugs you are! and Iran will be a burnt spot on the map!

    Russia needs Iran’s Oil. *sniggers* Not one of them made the connection between Iran and Europe. not one.

    How long do they think the US would last for without Europe and London?

    Who would protect their precious Israel then?

    If the Joo’s start a war with Iran under the pretext of, To protect the Jewish people, then I say that the Europeans should use every last drop of oil they have to round up these Jewish people for the absolutely final solution.

    @ Mark Lytle

    I dont see that happening. Another USS Liberty. An attack on Iran is an attack on NATO. While I dont doubt there are people in the USA stupid enough to do it, I cant imagine NATO countries being drawn into this one. The entire western world would be destroyed with Iran in less than a year.

    @ Mark Lytle

    RE: the future could be a rought place.
    Agreed! The US delivered a large number of bunker buster bombs to Israel last year. Since some are nuclear a limited strtategic attack on Irans underground facilities would probably be effective in setting back the nuclear program in Iran. If the US lets Russia and China know in advance it will be at DEFCON 2 when the attack commences, until the attack is over it is unlikely any other country will escalate the war beyond the original attack mission. But of course with insane oligarchs one never knows which way they will jump.

    @ Robert Mochan

    Israeli Aircraft do not have the range to attack Iran. It would be a one way trip. Not something a beach front suburb of that size can afford to lose.

  29. Al Kyder says:

    @ Robert Mochan

    Actually to expand on that, people forget this is a three dimensional theatre. The Caucasus are the second highest mountains in the world. Iran and Armenia are over 1000 metres up that makes it very difficult for the attack squad having such a long ingress to the target, no chance of surprise, that gives defenders plenty of time to prepare.

  30. Al Kyder says:

    Here we go ………

    Israel stands behind the U.S. administration, Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, while adressing the International Unity Conference in Tehran today, IRINN TV channel reported live.
    “These regimes have decided to dominate the world through force and power, spreading cruelty, colonization and murder on other nations,” Ahmadinejad stated.
    Iranian president spoke further on, by saying that the U.S. is simply stealing money from the pockets of other nations.
    “A dollar was imposed as world’s reserve currency, while there’s no guarantee. The U.S. Federal Reserve creates paper money, increases zeros in accounts, and stealing money from others,” Ahmadinejad said.
    With regard to the Western countries, Ahmadinejad said there is no independence in the U.S.
    “They create parliaments and organize elections. At best, under 50 percent of people participate in these elections,” he said. “Nothing is changing, as the votes are stolen, and independent people who are not corrupt, cannot get to the top, no matter how hard they try”.
    “People of the U.S. need a change, yet there is no one to chose from, ” Ahmadinejad said. “People are unable to express their disapproval, because if they cross the red line, they will lose their reputation”.
    Touching upon Israel, Iranian president noted that Europeans say nothing about Israel, while it continues to impose their ideals not just on muslims but on all humanity”.

    MOSCOW – BP PLC’s Russian joint venture TNK-BP Ltd. said Wednesday it plans to invest around $4 billion over the coming three years to develop Arctic oil and gas fields, in a move to offset declining production at Soviet-era fields.

    The company will spend close to $2 billion on the four oil fields between 2012 and 2014, with total investments over the next 30 years of development at $12 billion, said Quigley.

    The crude can be shipped either to Europe or to Asia, and will “most likely” be transported to Asian markets through the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline, Quigley said.

    Keppel Offshore & Marine Technology Centre (KOMtech), a design and engineering arm of Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M), and ConocoPhillips are jointly designing a first-of-its-kind ice-worthy jackup rig to operate in one of the harshest marine frontiers, the Arctic Seas.

    This jackup rig will have dual cantilevers to optimise drilling operations within a limited time window. The rig is capable of operating in a self-sustained manner for 14 days and is equipped with a hull that is designed for towing in ice. It is also able to resist the impacts from multi-year ice floes and ridges as well as withstand certain level of ice thickness.This joint design project is expected to be completed by end 2013.

    Dr. Foo Kok Seng, Centre Director, KOMtech said, “We are glad to partner with ConocoPhillips to jointly design this ice-worthy jackup rig for the Arctic Seas. The features of this jackup rig make it a cost-effective and promising drilling solution for the Arctic Offshore.

    In 2008, Keppel O&M’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Keppel Singmarine broke into the Arctic market, having successfully delivered the first pair of icebreakers built in the tropics of Asia to LUKOIL-Kaliningradmorneft.
    …….

    Translation. ConocoPhilips is Obama’s family oil biz connection.

    Why would they want such a rig. To drill Alaska springs to mind.

    This is a very ambitious project. These rigs have a tendency to explode, and rescue for the inhabitants is not something that can be done easily due to weather conditions.

    By court reporter Sarah Farnsworth
    Updated February 09, 2012 20:17:18

    A Melbourne man is fighting to reverse the sale of his home which was sold for $1,000.

    Zhiping Zhou’s house in the Melbourne suburb of Braybrook, which he built himself, was seized by the sheriff over a $98,000 debt.

    The Victorian Supreme Court heard the property had an estimated value of $630,000.

    The reserve was set at market value during an August 2010 auction but was removed by court order after the house failed to sell.

    Five months later it was sold for just $1,000.

    The second highest bid was $200.

    Mr Zhou’s lawyer told the court the sheriff breached her duty by accepting the successful bid, arguing it was “absurd”.

    “[The sale is] so short of the mark it’s not a real sale,” barrister Paul Hayes said.

    He said it was hard to imagine lawmakers had intended for people like Mr Zhou to lose out so badly.

    The judge was asked to invalidate the sale or award damages.

    Action is also being taken against the buyer, Ronald Kousal.

    Mr Zhou is accusing Mr Kousal of taking excessive advantage.

    But Mr Kousal’s lawyer argues the sale is legal and binding.

    He told the court the sale was legal and could have been sold for one cent.

    Lawyers for the sheriff’s office say it had no obligation to get a fair price.

  53. Robert Mockan says:

    Textbook example of how banking manipulation of markets plays out these days.
    The FOREX eur:usd pair was at 1.3275. Lotof market talk about Greek acceptance of bailout plan. Traders trading the talk and holding the pair at 1.3275 to 1.3300.
    Then “German offical” (unnamed source) says decsion not going to happen Thursday.
    (The rumor maker knows perfectly how this effects the trader sentiment- sell off the eur:usd pair). It starts to drop. But then Societe Generale (SOCGEN) of France is quoted as saying eur:usd exchange ratio expected to go to 1.3435, then 1.3550.
    The exchange ratio immediately turns around and on low volume, but with trader conditioning, has them buying the pair back up. Rationally with NO VERIFIED news having been released, the exchange ratio should not be affected with these obvious bogus peices of shit. But traders now all seem to be gamblers with no thinking at all.
    First, NO legitimate official would be authorizesd to speak in advance about the outcome today of the Greek meeting, even if one did have advance knowledge of it, and even if it were true. Second, SocGen is full of bullshit. The cost of debt and maintence of it, in the EU is higher for all countries when the Euro increases in value. Exactly opposite of what they need, and makes it more certain other countires would go under after Greece. What they need is for the Euro value to go down, not up. IF SocGen really said what it was quoted, it is too coincidental the information would be released at this particular moment. On the other hand, and what makes much more sense, they are talking the Euro up to short it when it inevitably continues falling to its intrinsic value.
    Right now the exchange ratio is at 1.3283. About where it was before any of this latest bogus “news” was released. That is because the conflicting news creates paralysis due to uncertainty about where the excahnge ratio is going next. 20 years ago you never saw this kind of shit. It is all manipulation now and gambling.

    Here in the Uk two men from the world of football were acquitted earlier this week for tax evasion, Harry Redknapp, manager of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and Milan Mandric, Chairman and owner of Sheffield Wednesday. The case took five years to get to court and cost the tax payer £8 million. The two men were acquitted of trying to avoid tax amounting to £30,000, based on their argument that this was small beans compared to the total income tax that they had paid in their business careers totalling an amazing £102 million; the jury agreed. Inevitably, a spokesman from Revenue and Customs still thought they were justified in trying. It just shows that lawyers are just as expensive as bankers etc.
