A NATO terrorist attack has hit a water pipes factory in al-Brega, murdering six guards, this being the factory which makes pipes for the great man-made irrigation system across the desert which brings water to seventy per cent of Libyan homes, according to sources in Libya. The factory was hit after the Read More…

An apocalyptic report prepared by Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov for President and Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Medvedev is warning today that the strategic military agreements signed this week between China and Pakistan signal that the “end game” between the East and West over the vital energy resources of the Middle East “has now begun.”
According to Minister Serdyukov, the most vital aspect of this new strategic agreement is the allowing by Pakistan for Chinese military forces to begin the “immediate use” of the Karakoram Highway which will allow China’s massive ground forces direct access to the Middle East and into direct confrontation with the West.
Important to note about the Karakoram Highway [aka China National Highway 314 and in Pakistan as N-35] is that it is the highest paved international road in the world stretching over 1,300 km (800 miles) without which China would have no direct access to the sub-continent.
Upon India’s learning about this new agreement it announced it would be spending $10 Billion to build 558 new roads along the Pakistan-Chinese border to ensure its own security, but which this report warns will not be completed soon enough to protect the West.
China’s “grand strategy” behind this new move, Minister Serdyukov’s report continues, is to join its ground forces with those of its air forces it has pre-placed in NATO member country Turkey, both of whom have been carrying out joint air defense exercises since last year much to the alarm of the United States and European Union.
Even more alarming to the West has been China’s air route for refueling its warplanes being readied for a Middle East war which include Pakistan, Iran and Turkey.
Minister Serdyukov further states in his report that China’s actions to protect its energy future based upon Middle East oil (of which it could not survive without) is its belief that the United States is about turn against Israel using the same type of United Nations maneuvering it used to launch attacks on Libya.
China’s fears are, apparently, being borne out as just hours ago, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon announced that Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands captured in previous wars is “morally, politically unsustainable” and former speaker of the US House of Representatives, Newt Gingrich, further warned this past week that the United States under President Obama is “dominated by a secular, anti-Christian and anti-Jewish elite.”
The critical importance of Israel in maintaining global peace, Minister Serdyukov continues, lies in fundamental Russian Military doctrines which adhere to a balance of forces where no nation can undertake an attack on another without both destroying themselves, a doctrine successfully implemented during the Cold War (1947-1991), which for nearly 70 years has averted another World War.
Upon the ending of the Cold War, Minister Serdyukov says, the United States “unleashed itself” and along with its allies under UN “control” began its first war against Iraq in 1991 and has continued to this day its unrelenting assault to gain the last remaining energy resources available to our world, nearly all of which are centered in the volatile Middle East.
China’s amassing of a military force to secure its energy future through an invasion of the Middle East lies exactly within the interests of the United States seeking to protect itself too. The “lynchpin” needed by both China and the US to secure the Middle East is the Shiite nation of Iran, who unbeknownst to all but the most knowledgeable has been defended and strengthened by the US who since the end of the Cold War have eliminated all of the Persian nation’s enemies on its borders, most especially the Sunni ruled Iraq and the Taliban controlled Afghanistan.
The United States taking out of Libya also gives the Shiites total control over the formerly controlled Sunni nations of Northern Africa, which includes the critically positioned country of Egypt.
Left out of the “equation”, of course, are both Saudi Arabia and Israel, both of whom face imminent destruction, with none being more important than the Israelis whose vast oil shale reserves (second only to the United States in the entire world) estimated at over 250 Billion barrels (compared to Saudi Arabian reserves of 260 Billion barrels) make it the “crown jewel” to be captured in this last “Great Game” on Earth.
Most important of all of these things is to warn that when the headlines of today start matching the ancient prophecies of yesterday, maybe it’s time one should really start reading exactly what was written, especially the aforementioned Book of Revelation, that though written nearly 2,000 years ago foretold a time when a 200 million man army from the East (China can field over 600 million troops) [Revelation 9:14-16] would cross the great Euphrates River that was dried up (and which “coincidentally” it is today due to its severest drought in known history.

Recent reports note that China has deployed troops in Gilgit Baltistan territory, in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.1 While Chinese officials ascribe this to the economic and infrastructure development in the region, this obtrusive presence is a cause for concern in New Delhi. Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir – Pakistan occupied parts of Kashmir – have been conspicuously absent in the media as well as in the scholarly literature.2 Occupied by Pakistan since 1948, the region has been kept under wraps and outside the ambit of the Kashmir Conflict by Islamabad, which has been relentless in diverting attention to the issue of human rights abuses in Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan has been using the territory, resources and people of the region to further its national objectives. Militarily, this territory has served as a launching pad for all ventures of the Pakistan army to create unrest in Jammu and Kashmir including offering a permanent sanctuary for radical extremist and terrorist organisations that threaten regional security.3 Although the presence of Chinese troops in these areas has been denied by both Pakistan and China,4 Indian concerns are genuine and need attention. This commentary explores the implications of this development for India. In doing so, it argues that China’s infrastructure development in the region indicates its attempt at regional dominance, which could jeopardise India’s interests in the long run.
In recent years, China has been able to change the geopolitical and geostrategic equations in this region that borders China, India, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Tajikistan. China’s upgrading of the Karakoram Highway, its development of road and rail access as well as other constructions including dams and tunnels, enable it to extend its strategic reach to the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf through Pakistan. As far as China is concerned, the Karakoram Highway is integral to keep Pakistan’s military sustained against India. Hence, the presence of Chinese troops in the contested region constitutes Beijing’s direct involvement in the Kashmir dispute. Consequentially, this could, in principle, transform a bilateral dispute into a trilateral dispute, with China being the third stakeholder. That apart, the roads and bridges being constructed with Chinese assistance, facilitate Pakistan army operations against India in the region. This involvement further signals that “Pakistan is a frontline state of China’s Grand Strategy”5 to strengthen the Chinese presence in South Asia.
Another issue of political relevance is that China’s ‘Kashmir is a disputed territory’ stance could harden, marking a shift from the earlier view that ‘it is a de facto part of India’.6 This, coupled with Beijing’s issue of stapled visas to residents of Jammu and Kashmir and its refusal of a visa to India’s northern army commander on the grounds that he commanded a ‘disputed territory’,7 is causing India to suspect whether China is taking unilateral steps to change the dynamics of the dispute. Related to this is China’s direct involvement in India’s domestic politics – specifically the secessionist movement in Kashmir valley, which is evident in the invitation extended to separatist leader Mirwaiz Farooq.8 This development could also be a signal to India to abstain from interfering in matters related to Tibet in future.
These developments are posing fresh military challenges to India not only along the India-China border but also along the Line of Control. Unlike earlier, when China had logistic limitations on India’s western front (read Ladakh) in terms of fuel supply for troops, the Karakoram Highway and ongoing infrastructure development will facilitate military operations against India. China’s intensified engagement in the region, encompassing reconstruction and development, suggests a subtle move to alter the security situation in the region. Commenting on what he describes as the “influx” of PLA soldiers in Gilgit-Baltistan region, Selig Harrison regards the development as the unfolding of “a quiet geopolitical crisis” in the Himalayan borderlands of Northern Pakistan.9
Finally, in the context of a combined China-Pakistan military threat to India, China’s development activities in the area is likely to facilitate speedy and enhanced deployment of Pakistan army to complement China’s military and thus outflank India. Another reason for the heightened concern about India’s strategic environment is China’s putting in place a “string of pearls” around India in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) through the development of ports and other infrastructure.10 This implies that the noose around India can be tightened if necessity, both on land and water. Beijing’s geostrategic ambitions over time are translating into a grand strategy of regional dominance, which has serious security implications for India.
A shocking Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today claims that a rogue “hit team” of US Military assassins were foiled in their attempt to kill the President of the South American Nation of Argentina, after their US Air Force plane was seized late last week.
According to this report, upon its landing at the Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport, a US Air Force Boeing Globemaster III aircraft [photo 3rd left] was inspected by Argentinean Customs Police after they had received an “anonymous tip” from and unidentified “foreign intelligence” agency.
Upon their inspection of the US Air Force plane they discovered a cache of “hidden cargo” marked “Diplomatic Property of the US Government” that upon their opening were found to contain guns, drugs and satellite phones.
Argentina’s Foreign Minister, Héctor Timerman, further described that in this “diplomatic” cargo shipment was a briefcase containing morphine, psychotropic medication, highly-sensitive communication devices and a letter that read, in Spanish, “I am an American soldier, let my country know I’ve been arrested.”
The SVR says is this report that the psychotropic medication found by Argentinean authorities are “highly consistent” with the United States decades long effort to create “mind-controlled” assassins, and which was first revealed in 1975 by the Church Committee of the US Congress releasing what are referred to as the Project MKULTRA secret documents.
US Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Arturo Valenzuela, called on Argentina to return the property it had seized “without delay” and stated “It’s absolutely necessary that they immediately return that material. It makes no sense for it to have been confiscated this way. This material was intended for a joint exercise in training people to rescue hostages.”
Argentina, of course, flat out rejected the American’s “order” with Foreign Minister Timerman further stating that the US has refused to collaborate in the investigation and warning that “the laws are made to be followed here.”
To the reasons for these rogue elements in the US Military and intelligence services to assassinate President Kirchner we had touched upon in our February 13th report Obama Doctrine Sends Shockwave Across World wherein we stated:
“The main reason for the United States retrenchment to the Western Hemisphere, the SVR says, is due to many factors, the most important of them being the water crisis currently engulfing the entire Middle East and stated by all military experts will lead to outright warfare.
Control over Argentina, this SVR report says, is “absolutely vital” for the American’s plan to retrench their empire into the Western Hemisphere as it is one of the World’s largest producers of food, and with the grim news from China that nearly its entire wheat crop is being destroyed by drought, coupled with the Superstorms that have wreaked our Planets ability to feed itself (and as we had previously reported on in our February 6th report New Superstorms Warned Have ‘Doomed’ World Food Production), whoever controls this South American Nation will, without a doubt, control the World.
To the masses of people, especially in the West, still ignorant of the true reasons lying behind the monstrous attempts by the US to “control the World” it is worth visiting, again, the dire 2004 still secret Pentagon report detailing the grim future that faces us all:
“A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world.
The White House said on Wednesday the U.N. arms embargo on Libya contains enough flexibility to allow the arming of Libyan rebels.“It is clear that we on the side of the rebels are”McCain said.
My comments: On one side they declare war against their own created jihady and contrary in libya they create new force of jihady or Al-quida for promoting their own agenda.So USA just use Al-Quida and jihady for their own secret agenda of dominance to control oil and resouces of the oil rich muslim countries.
Moamer Kadhafi accused the West on Wednesday of wanting to seize Libya’s oil and warned that a no-fly zone would backfire as his forces pounded rebel lines, setting a string of oil facilities ablaze.
My comments: America and west thrist for oil increase day by day and find excuse for control the oil.
The boss of Libya’s state oil firm insisted the damage to infrastructure was minor but acknowledged that oil output was down more than two-thirds, as the price for London’s main contract jumped $2.56 to $115.62.
“The colonialist countries are hatching a plot to humiliate the Libyan people, reduce them to slavery and control the oil,” Kadhafi said on state television.
He again accused Al-Qaeda of being behind the insurrection that began on February 15 and called on inhabitants of Benghazi, the rebels’ main base, to “liberate” Libya’s second city.
His government offered a $410,000 bounty for the capture of Mustafa Abdel Jalil, head of the rebel national council which declared itself the North African country’s sole representative in Benghazi on Saturday.
Strong blasts rocked the rebel-held oil town of Ras Lanuf on Libya’s central coast, forcing the insurgents back. A mechanic said a pipeline had been blown up.
An oil installation was also ablaze near As-Sidra 10 kilometres (six miles) further west although National Oil Corp boss Shukri Ghanem played down its importance.
“Fortunately, the explosion today was in a small storage supply facility in Sidra … It has not affected the production,” Ghanem said, adding: “It was diesel, it’s not crude oil.”
Scores of rebels packed into dozens of vehicles and retreated into Ras Lanuf after several hours of sustained shelling and at least three air strikes west of the town.
The distinguished American Professor and Human Rights Watch board member Michael T. Klare first coined the term “resource wars” in his 2001 book “Resource Wars: The New Landscape of Global Conflict” wherein he warned that our World was on the cusp of a century of warfare over access to the dwindling supplies of oil and fresh water every Nation needs, but there is not enough of to go around.
Though this forecast has proven accurate among the masses of Western people, the same cannot be said of their leaders, most important of them being the former British Defense Secretary John Reid who, likewise, in 2006 warned that Global weather changes and dwindling natural resources were combining to increase the likelihood of violent conflict over land, water and energy.
Most important to note about Reid’s 2006 warning was that it came at a time that the United States was securing its own energy future by taking the vast oil wealth of Iraq in covert partnership with Iran, but since that time has been moving away from its traditional European and Middle Eastern allies as it further retrenches into its own hemisphere.
Being left out in the cold, so to speak, with America’s retrenchment, the British, under their former Prime Minister Tony Blair, began actively courting Libya dictator Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi, in 2007, allowing the release of Abdel Baset Ali al-Megrahi, a former Libyan intelligence agent and the only man convicted in the Lockerbie Bombing, in exchange for oil drilling rights for British Petroleum (BP).
The New York Times News Service further reported about this “deal” between Blair and el-Qaddafi: “A senior British official, Sir Gus O’Donnell, formally acknowledged that BP had lobbied the British government in pursuit of its oil interests and the British government, in turn, resolved to “do all it could to facilitate an appeal by the Libyans to the Scottish government” for Mr. Megrahi’s release.”
Not just to Libya’s oil were the British after either, as in the early 1980’s, drilling teams in this North African Nations southern parts discovered one of the largest water systems in the World in four major underground basins, these being the Kufra basin, the Sirt basin, the Morzuk basin and the Hamada basin.
In order to utilize this massive underground water wealth the Libyan’s began construction of the “Great Man-Made River”, which aside from being the largest water transport project ever undertaken on our Planet has, also, been described as the “Eighth Wonder of the World.”
In late August, 1991, “turned on the tap” of their Great Man-Made River in a ceremony attended by nearly all Middle Eastern leaders, including former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak who encouraged his countrymen to “go to Libya” to begin growing food for the entire region.
Important for the reader to note about Libya’s Great Man-Made River is that with a population of barely 6.4 million people, the food resources being grown since the early 1990’s (estimated that by 2012 could feed 50 million) could only be done so with the importation of over 1 million migrant workers, many of whom the UN now reports are either trapped or now fleeing.
Most important of these migrant workers were the nearly 40,000 Chinese who were saved by their Nation’s “epic evacuation” and who were working on vastly improving Libya’s ability to market grains and fresh foods to Asia and various other projects, and by far posed the West’s biggest threat to their “claim” over Libya’s vast oil and water wealth.
Unfortunately for el-Qaddafi, however, was that instead of cementing firm defense relations with either Russia or China he became a “ripened plum” ready to be picked off by the West, especially after his storming out of the Arab League meeting in Qatar in March, 1999, after calling the Saudi King “a liar” and further stating that the Saudi ruler was a “British product and American ally.”
Not being told the Western people about el-Qaddafi, his regime, or his family, is that the vast amount of Libyan oil and water wealth has been given to the Libyan people themselves, and even though like all other oligarchs (especially those in the US where just 400 people control over half of that country’s wealth) pale in comparison to the Billions of Dollars stolen from the peoples of Saudi Arabia, Oman, Yemen, Bahrain, Tunisia, Iraq, Jordan and Djibouti by their Western backed despotic rulers. That is not say, however, that el-Qaddafi, his regime, or his family, were not despotic, they were just less so than all the others by a wide margin.
So, with the Middle East now seeing its greatest turmoil since the early part of last century when the Arab people began throwing off the yoke of colonial repression, and with Libya being the “main prize” because of its vast oil and water wealth, it was no wonder that the new British Prime Minister, David Cameron, became the first Western leader to visit Egypt, a visit that was quickly followed by Egyptian Special Forces troops storming into Libya to aid the rebels.
Those Egyptian Special Forces troops were then quickly followed into Libya by British Special Air Services (SAS) troops and MI6 agents who arrived “in the dead of night, armed with weapons, maps and explosives while dressed in plain black clothing”, but “not to worry” said the British, “they were just looking for hotel rooms”.
Though these British SAS troops were quickly captured by the rebels and kicked out of Libya, one would have to be in complete denial to not know that there are other teams of Western military and intelligence agents directing the war against el-Qaddafi and his forces to gain control over this most coveted of Middle Eastern Nations.
Most appalling in all of these events are that the American people are not being allowed to know the truth of what is truly happening, the reason being, and as the United States own Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, told the US Congress last week, “American media outlets do not offer real news despite their being the most technologically advanced” in the World.”
To support Secretary Clinton’s assessment of how far the once free US news establishment has fallen in telling the American people the truth was the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health report released this week detailing how US Military Forces have killed over 1 million Iraqis, a staggering number of deaths not reported to these people by their “mainstream” media even though it took these university researchers just hours to compile this information from the Pentagons own reports.
As we have reported on many times, the still top-secret Pentagon report released to London’s Telegraph Newspaper in 2004 detailing the World we are now entering is still being ignored by the American people, but its warnings should be heeded now at all costs as these dreaded Resource Wars are now beginning in full, including its dire findings that:
Britain will be ‘Siberian’ in less than 20 years
Threat to the world is greater than terrorism
Once again, warfare will define human life
