Targeting Iran's livelihood, what prospects?

Uploaded by FeloniousVendetta on 27 Dec 2011 - Iran has threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, the only sea passage for oil shipments from the Persian Gulf if the West places sanctions on the country's oil exports. The announcement was made on Tuesday by Iran's vice president Mohammad-Reza Rahimi and aired on state television.

 "If they (the West) impose sanctions on Iran's oil exports, then even one drop of oil cannot flow from the Strait of Hormuz," he said. This comes as Iran is continuing the ten-day naval exercises in the Strait of Hormuz. Early reports of these maneuvers raised fears that the country might shut down the strait. The announcement proves these concerns were not groundless.

Iran begins 10-day military drills in Strait of Hormuz

Uploaded by cctvnewschannel on 25 Dec 2011 - Iran has kicked off 10 days of naval exercises in the Strait of Hormuz. Concerns are now being raised over a possible closure of the world's most strategic oil transit channel in the event of an outbreak of military conflict between Tehran and the West. Drills on one of the busiest straits in the world. The military drills, dubbed "Velayat-e 90", comes as tension between the West and Iran is escalating over Iran's nuclear program. Israel and the United States have not ruled out military action if diplomacy and sanctions fail to rein in Iran's nuclear ambitions. Some diplomats believe the Islamic Republic could attempt to block the strait in the event of a war with the West over suspicions it is seeking to build atom bombs.

UK implicated in Afghanistan drug trade.





British forces in war-battered Afghanistan (file photo)

Thu Dec 15, 2011 | A senior Afghan official has accused Britain of involvement in illicit narcotics trade in Afghanistan, Press TV reports. 

"There are documents and evidence that show that British forces in [Afghanistan's] Helmand Province not only did nothing to prevent the illicit drug trade, but in some cases also took part in it," Yousef-Ali Vaezi, an advisor to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, told Press TV on Thursday. 

"They cooperated in the cultivation, production, and trafficking of drugs," he added. 

He also said that the restrictive conditions brought in the declaration of the national gathering of Afghan tribal leaders -- the Loya Jirga -- which was recently held to discuss long-term security agreement with the US, were still valid. 

Based on the conditions, Vaezi said, the US-led foreign forces in Afghanistan would not be granted immunity from prosecution.

ISLAMABAD, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani said on Sunday the United States has vacated the Shamsi airbase within the time limit given to it, according to the APP, a government-run news agency in Pakistan.
In an interview with the BBC Urdu service, the Prime Minister said now the Shamsi airbase is under the control of Pakistani forces.
Earlier on Sunday local media reported that the last flight has taken away the U.S. personnel and equipment from the Shamsi airbase, marking a complete withdrawal of the U.S. from the airbase, which is demanded by the Pakistani government following the November 26 NATO air strike on two border check points that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.
A spokesman with the Inter-Services Public Relations, a mouthpiece of the Pakistani army, confirmed the report and said that the army has taken over the Shamsi airbase.
Located some 320 kilometers southwest of Quetta, capital of Balochistan province in southwest Pakistan, the Shamsi airbase has reportedly been used by the U.S. since 2001 for launching military operations in Afghanistan and drone strikes in Pakistan's northwest tribal areas.

Turkey dilemma with UE.





They NUKE Libya too!


US AND CLIENT STATES USED WMD ON LIBYA

07/dec/11

By Peter Eyre

We heard Cameron and Hague state firmly the action that had taken place and the reasons behind that action which they said was primarily on humanitarian grounds! 

What we in the UK did not understand was the fact that the final outcome was nothing to do with saving lives but rather to get their hands on Libya's vast lucrative natural resources. The entire campaign became a total blood bath that would leave over 50,000 dead and many many thousands of innocent Libyan civilians would become contaminated with radiation from the weapons used by the coalition forces. The active use of Weapons of Mass Destruction's (WMD) has basically killed the genetics of Libya, adjacent countries and the world beyond by it's over excessive use of depleted uranium weapons.

Blackwater Name Change again:

To Academi From Xe
Blackwater Name Change
In this July 28, 2008 file photo, Blackwater Worldwide's headquarters is seen in Moyock, N.C.
An infamous company is attempting a complete brand makeover -- again.

The private security firm formerly known as Blackwater and most recently known as Xe has decided to change its name to Academi, according to The Washington Post.

Blackwater changed its name to Xe in 2009, ostensibly to distance itself from its dark past -- five of its employees were indicted for charges related to a 2007 shooting in Iraq that killed 17 unarmed Iraqi civilians, according to Time.

Apparently the first switch didn't help the firm's image problem; the State Department opted not to renew its contract with the firm in May 2009, also according to Time.

Still, Ted Wright, the company's CEO insists that the latest name change isn't simply a PR move. Instead, Wright told WaPo it indicates a shift in the firm's ownership and leadership.

Iran delivers major blow to the CIA


Asia Times
Thursday, Dec 1, 2011

Iran's claim last week to have arrested 12 spies working for the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is potentially a major blow to American intelligence-gathering efforts in Iran and to American intelligence generally. The arrests come on the heels of the arrest of 30 alleged CIA spies in late May and are indicative of steadily improving counter-intelligence capabilities. 


The recent success is reinforced by the unraveling of a CIA spy ring in Lebanon operating within the Hezbollah organization. These reports have been grudgingly confirmed by current and former US intelligence officials, which is suggestive of a major American intelligence defeat, if not a full-blown disaster. 



Recent Hezbollah counter-intelligence successes against Israel and the US (in June, Hezbollah arrested two CIA spies operating inside the organization) are at least in part due to increased counter-intelligence assistance from Iran. 



Asia Times Online sources in Tehran claim that Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) has been more willing in recent years to transfer sensitive counter-espionage know-how and techniques to both Hezbollah and the official Lebanese intelligence services.
