Iran@War; Last Bastion of Privacy Falls; and Many others Top Headlines!


So the West is at, Cold, War with Iran; first it was the covert ops on the nuclear site, then Syria attempts, border clashes along Iraq and Afghan-Western borders; then the open ‘agitation’ by the British, US and the French Ambassadors in the Syrian and Iranian affairs; and more recent, the Embassy-assaults (even Bahrain), the CIA unmasking by Hezbollah etc—all these are ‘communicative acts of war games’– Iran telling the West, you have your NATO alliances and Security Council, we on the other hand we have more terrifying alliances/weapon, the dispersed cells of insurgents, ‘terrorists’, ‘Shia revolutionaries’, etc.

Second, in the UK, the last bastion of our privacy is assaulted, if one controls this, one control, absolutely, us all—our medical records. I think I am going to ‘hurry up’ the migration from this surveillance-state (reminds me of V for Vendetta).

Anyhoooo…..here are the rest of excellent headlines, ranging from growing inequalities gaps, Middle East changing Geo-politics, The Islamists Rise (as predicted), and some of very interesting articles, for example on Oil from WSJ and so forth.
