RUSSIA has shelved a plan to place Iskander missiles in its Baltic exclave Kaliningrad after the US yesterday dropped its scheme for a missile shield in eastern Europe.
Iskander missiles would not be positioned in Kaliningrad, a military source told the Interfax news agency last night: "Undoubtedly, Washington's cancellation of its missile defence facilities will not remain unnoticed. The array of measures planned in response to the deployment of the missile defence sites in Europe will be frozen, and possibly completely cancelled," the source added.
The source specified one key measure being frozen was a plan to place short-range Iskander missiles in Russia's westernmost Kaliningrad exclave, next to EU members Poland and Lithuania.

WW3 won't happen for years. It would be a sure suicide for the West. You have Russia, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea, Iran and the Muslim world vs U.S. U.K. Israel and NATO. It is far too dangerous for the West to start anything without at least trying to ruin the relationship between those powers mentioned. Though the U.S. does have strategic locations throughout the world for attack, North Korea would attack the South to unite Korea, China would bomb Taiwan if the opportunity is there, but also Japan would be possibly harmed as well, India and Pakistan could take the chance to take out the U.S. out of Afghanistan and out of the Middle East, Iran can attack Israel, WHICH would also give a golden opportunity for the Muslim world to attack Israel, Russia could take anyone, given that we do not know there capabilities truly. Countries in South America could also see opportunities for attack each other or the U.S.
The U.S. will not let it happen until they can attack those countries from the inside and bring them down, then attack from the outside.
It will not happen. It is all propaganda and hype - once again. And let us not forget that it is not countries that declare wars - it is the elites of those countries who do so.

Hi, great points, but have You heard of BLOC?[
Amidst Iran's quest for acquiring the advanced S-300 air defense system, an Israeli military official says every effort should be made to stop the defense system from reaching countries where Israeli air force may need to operate....
"We need to make every effort to stop this system from getting to places where the IAF needs to operate or may need to operate in the future," he added.

It's clear to me that Obama will do nothing about Iran.
Hillary Clinton will say this and that but just words.
I can hear the excuse already. "Well, we have our hands full
If Putin were to put together a 6 million man army and just
surge the whole army to Saudia Arabia, then Obama would
just sit back and watch. Obama might send an email to France
but that's about it.
All that oil would be an economic boom for Russia.
Jobs....Jobs.....Jobs...and wealth for Putin $$$.
If China finds out, they might get jealous and send a 200 Million
man army to meet the Russian army in Iraq.

US Spec Ops operates psywar websites targeted at UK
The secretive US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) has awarded arms globocorp General Dynamics a $10m contract to set up a network of psychological-warfare "influence websites" supporting the Global War On Terror. France and Britain are specifically included as "targeted regions".
Found this interesting; as We draw closer to war, more, and more of us will be targeted for "indoctrination".
During my 20 years in corporate communications and public affairs, I participated in the steady growth and influence of largely invisible persuasion -- and at a time when newsrooms are shrinking and investigative journalism seems to be vanishing. The number of P.R. people long ago surpassed the number of working journalists in this country. And that ratio of P.R. people to reporters will continue to grow. The clear winners as this shift occurs are big, rich corporations and other special interests. The losers are average Americans, most of whom are completely unaware how their thoughts and actions are being manipulated to achieve corporate goals on Capitol Hill.
