isis-anti-tankThe Independent: “The Isis militant group has seized enough radioactive material from government facilities to suggest it has the capacity to build a large and devastating “dirty” bomb, according to Australian intelligence reports.

Isis declared its ambition to develop weapons of mass destruction in the most recent edition of its propaganda magazine Dabiq, and Indian defence officials have previously warned of the possibility the militants could acquire a nuclear weapon from Pakistan.”

Opinion: On July 24, 2914 CNN reported that the militant outfit Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has seized nearly 40 kg of uranium compounds used for research purposes at Mosul … In response, U.S. officials told CNN that the small amounts of uranium aren’t enriched or weapons-grade, prompting only minimal concern.

See, there is absolutely nothing to worry about …

Newsmax: “U.S. President Barack Obama is considering expanding the number of training sites for Iraqi forces to bolster the battle against Islamic State, U.S. military officials said on Tuesday, which could mean deploying hundreds more U.S. forces in Iraq.

The proposed build-up follows only sporadic successes in the months-long U.S.-backed Iraqi drive to push back Islamic State, a drive that suffered a severe setback with the fall of the Anbar provincial capital Ramadi last month.

Opinion: Perhaps the expanded training could include keeping on their uniforms and not running away.

Opec under siege as Isil threatens world's oil lifeline

 End Times, Iraq, Israel, Middle East, New World Order, Obama, Russia  Comments Off on Opec under siege as Isil threatens world’s oil lifeline
Jun 012015
 

IS-flagThe Telegraph: “Thick black smoke rising from the Baiji oil refinery could be seen as a dirty smudge on the horizon as far away as Baghdad after fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) set fire to the enormous processing plant just over 100 miles north of the capital last week.

The decision to torch the refinery, which once produced around a third of Iraq’s domestic fuel supplies, was made as the insurgents prepared to pull out of Baiji, which they captured last June in a victory that sent shock waves across world oil markets.

A year on from the start of the siege and a shaky alliance of the Middle East’s major Arab powers, with the limited support of the reluctant US government, has failed to contain the expansion of Isil.”

Opinion: The London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Sunday that Russia is pulling away from its relationship with embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad and withdrawing key personnel from Damascus apparently as a deal to get the US and EU to end sanctions.

Add to that, the Turkish news agency Anatolia reports: “After four years of war, the (Assad) regime controls less than 8% percent of the country’s oil and gas fields, while Islamic State controls more than 80% percent.”

Enter pipeline geopolitics:

1. Assad has been helping Russia to block the flow of natural gas out of the Persian Gulf (Qatari pipeline) into Europe, thus ensuring higher profits for Gazprom.

2. The EU wants access to the Qatari natural gas which will eventually reduce the dependency of Europe on Russian hydrocarbon companies.

3. The US wants its closest allies Qatar and Saudi Arabia (which are also the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world) to supply its natural gas to Europe through Syria.

4, Russia’s removal of support for Assad, if true, could be an interesting strategy: With the West’s reluctance to intervene against ISIS,  the political chaos that threatens to engulf the Middle East could send oil prices parabolic thereby strengthening Russia’s economy.

Factor in Climate Change politics:

President Obama’s disengagement form Middle East politics, and in particular his blind eye towards the advance of ISIS was articulated in last week’s speech: Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security.”

In addition, allowing the US/Saudi invention called ISIS to gain control of the Syrian oil fields accomplishes three objectives:

  • Payback to Assad over the red line embarrassment
  • Payback to Russia over Ukraine
  • Payback to Israel over the Netanyahu re-election

Hell hath no fury …
