Of course, primary is Syria. And, everything that surrounds that situation!

The reported death of Bandar Bin Sultan better known as Bandar Bush.
Thanks Gallier and Egoigwe , news originated with Voltaire Network
Refresh yourself here
Bandar had just been appointed head of Saudi Intelligence and then he is reported to have been killed.
The timing of this all seems odd. So, is he dead? He could be. What also seems possible? In order to do his dirty work and bring Syria to ruin, Prince Bandar Bush may have had to go very very covert? And, what better way to do this then to die.
One thought that did cross my mind regarding the news of the Prince's death.
How connected is the death of the Prince to the death of Omar Suleiman?
Powerful Egypt Spy Chief, Dies. On July 19/2012. Then just 7 days later on July 26/12 Prince Bandar is dead?
"There had been no public reports that Mr. Suleiman was ailing or that he had gone to the United States for medical care, so the news of his death came as a surprise." Yes, it did.
Suleiman and his ties to the CIA, like Prince Bandar, are simply legendary.
Suleiman: “That he died in the United States was, to his Egyptian critics, emblematic of his close ties with the C.I.A.”
Bandar: “The CIA's man in Riyadh”
On to Iran.

Stating the obvious- Turkey’s Parliament Member: Hatay Province is a hub for Mossad
A member of Turkey’s parliament says the country’s Hatay Province on the border with Syria has become a hub for CIA and Mossad spies moving into Syria.
The legislator of the Republican People’s Party, Refik Er-Yilmaz, said that thousands of CIA and Mossad agents are currently in the province and are moving freely in the area, Turkish media reported.
Turkish police remain mute spectators as the spies carry various types of identification, Er-Yimaz said.
He also accused the authorities of allowing American and Israeli troopers on Turkish soil without any approval from the parliament.
Er-Yilmaz’s comments came after the deputy of the Republican People’s Party, Osman Faruk Logoglu, on Monday blamed Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party for fomenting the unrest in Syria.
Logoglu criticized the Turkish government for aggravating the situation by sending military forces and vehicles towards the Syrian border.
Two Italian Technicians held in Syria - released!
Good news for their families. Curious?
“It is not yet clear who kidnapped Cantari, 64, and Tedeschi, 36. A group of relatives including Cantari's wife and son were at the airport to welcome them.”
What is clear is that it was not the Syrian Army or anyone affiliated with the Syrian government, or the media would have been sure to “report” that.
The SANA news agency in Syria reported Friday that the men were seized by an armed terrorist group and freed by Syrian troops in the province of Damascus.That makes sense.
Aleppo’s Christians arm against Islamists- sigh...
Let us hope that Syrians who have been neighbours for years do not turn one against the other. If this happens then the corrupting NATO powers win. I shudder at the thought.
NATO's terrorists and mercenaries from above article
“As evidence mounts that foreign Islamists (TERRORISTS) are fighting alongside Syria’s increasingly radicalized rebels,(allegedly) Christians in Aleppo and elsewhere are taking up arms, often supplied by the regime.(Often supplied by the regime?)
I don't know if that is accurate or supposition to create the perception of sectarian conflict being created by Assad.
The headline of this article is as follows: Syria's Muslim Brotherhood waiting in the wings
Not being one to skim headlines.. I quickly notice the contents contradict the attention grabbing headline
Though the Muslim Brotherhood has reemerged as a major political force since the turmoil in Syria began in March 2011, no one can say for certain just how popular it is within the country, said Syria expert Thomas Pierret.Therefore, it is NATO's "muslim brotherhood" waiting in the wings.
"You can't reconstruct a popular base within a year's time - from abroad," said Pierret, a lecturer in contemporary Islam at the University of Edinburgh and author of the upcoming book "Religion and State in Syria."
"This is a movement in exile that has not had any activity within Syria for over 30 years," Pierret told DW "It is difficult to prove how powerful they are since they have been operating underground.
Last but not least, certainly not least, a gem just waiting to shine! Don't miss this or you will regret it!!! Syria’s messy canvas
It’s written by Eric Margolis. Far better then usual and that’s why it getting posted. Guaranteed this opinion would never be published in the western main stream media. (Correct me If wrong!) He makes absolutely clear Israel is the biggest beneficiary of the ruin of Syria. Something we all knew or should know!
He starts out by clarifying all the noise about chemical weapons..
In the kind of urban warfare now going on in Syria, chemical weapons would have little use. Far more effective and deadly would be the thermobaric fuel air explosives employed by Russia, US, and Israel that rip apart the lungs of soldiers fighting from cover in ruined buildings or bunkers. Israel has the Mideast’s largest arsenal of chemical and biological weapons.
Israel’s military establishment and rightwing parties have made no secret of their yearning for revenge against Hezbollah, which inflicted a sharp defeat on Israel’s army in southern Lebanon in 2006. Nor have Israel’s expansionist rightists given up the ambition of former leader Ariel Sharon (who remains alive but in deep coma) of turning Lebanon into an Israeli protectorate ruled by Maronite Christian rightists.
Israeli officials also threatened to occupy what’s left of Syria’s Golan Heights to supposedly prevent them from turning into a “terrorist haven.” Today, Israeli heavy artillery on Golan is only 30 km from Damascus.
Is Washington giving Israel a green light to attack Syria as a consolation prize for delaying an attack against Iran? Certainly, overthrowing the Assad government has become an obsession in Washington. The road to Teheran runs through Damascus, chant US neo-conservatives and many bellicose Republicans.
Further raising the temperature, Turkey is threatening to occupy a heavily Kurdish chunk of northern Syria which it claims is being used to launch attacks into Turkey. Why Turkey is thinking about acquiring more rebellious Kurds when it can’t handle its own remains unclear. But formerly neutral Turkey is getting more deeply involved each day in Syria. Ankara’s machinations in Syria threaten to undo the success of its previous “no problems” policy with its neighbours.
The US, France, Turkey and Israel have all finalised plans for attacking Syria. The biggest winner in such a scenario would be Israel, as it was in the US war against Iraq. Sending Syria into turmoil would eliminate the most important supporter of the Palestinians resistance, cut off Hezbollah, leave it vulnerable to a final assault, isolate Iran, and cement Israel’s annexation of Syria’s Golan Heights
Thank You . Thank You.Via the western msm we are always informed that we should believe Israel prefers stability.
Bullbiscuits!! Horsefeathers!!It has been said here, on multiple occasions, Israel is the biggest beneficiary of all the destabilization in the Middle East. Clearly!!
