So they manage to interpret this tablet, yet can't put an image of said tablet on their site?
I too have found an ancient Sumerian clay tablet, it reads:
"Don't believe (unreadable)...thing you read (unreadable) ...the Interwebs..." then ends with what appears to be a colon-dash-parentheses.
What's sad is their interpretation of these tablets contain more instances of the word "Nibiru" than exist in the entire collection of tablets in all the museums the world over. In other words, the Sumerians scarcely ever mention "Nibiru" (accept a few mentions of it as a "crossing point"), which suggests it's importance (or lack of) to themselves.
I'm sorry to say but this site appears to belong to the metaphysics genre and a piece of wishful thinking on their part, or worse yet a hoax.

A few questions
1. Other than various websites quoting Translations of these so-called Sumerian Tablets, why has not there been a single photograph leaked out? The guy could leak out large bits of translations, but couldn't leak out even a small pic, be it blurry, be it sharp...not a even a small pic.
2. As a user stated before - Why a blog only? That makes it more suspicious.
3. Are you sure that these tablets were found in the city of Ur.? By the military?
Ur was not discovered by the American Military.
Ur was excavated in the 1930s. Take a look! The American Military Occupied it only.
I am sorry to say, these so called New tablets reek of a hoax.
He related that, on 20 or 21 March 2006, Professor Giovanni Pettinato and Professor Silvia Chiodi had discovered at Eridu a tablet covered with bitumen. They had looked further and found 500 tablets “disturbed by an explosion”. The tablets were said to be literary, historical and lexical. The historical tablets dated from the time of Eannatum, and the latest tablets were from the time of Amar-Suen. This information, or variations of it, was also circulated on various Italian and international websites. Following these revelations, Dr Donny George, then Chairman of the State Board of Antiquities and Heritage, sent inspectors to Eridu, who reported back that there were no tablets on the surface of the site, but only fragments of stamped bricks from the site of Eridu itself and from sites surrounding Eridu such as Ur. On 19 July 2006, at the 52ème Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale in Münster, Professor Pettinato reported that he had actually only found some 70 stamped bricks at Eridu. It seems, then, that what Pettinato and Chiodi actually found were stamped bricks used to build the modern Eridu dig-house.10 There is no evidence of looting or of recent visits to the site – car tracks were visible near a neighbouring canal and the site fence, which was not visited; from the air, it was possible to see the posts of the fence. Surface scraping close to the fence is presumably the result of field irrigation. Two site guards, who were not present during the inspection, are based at a village some distance from the mound.
