Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Warmongers United: Juncker Requests Creation Of EU Army; Peace By War – 9 March 2015

MishMikeShedlockWarmongers United

European discussion of Russia has gone from dumb to dumber.

Of course, the highly regarded “Warmongers United Think Tank” (WUTT) would dispute that. “Warmongers United” believes more armies, more missiles and more fighting are precisely the right thing to do.

What? Haven’t heard of WUTT?

The think tank consists of a various collection of folks itching for a war with Russia, Iran, and Syria, preferably all at once. True believers want to include China in that group.

In general, WUTT wants to set the world right (just as they insisted a war with Iraq, Vietnam and other places would set the world right). Continue reading

ZeroHedge – Greece Folds (Again); Ready To Propose “New” Reforms Immediately – 9 March 2015

ZeroHedgeFollowing earlier comments from various Eurogroup members – after yesterday’s dismissal of Greece’s proposed “reforms” – ranging from Slovakia’s “Greece needs to face the naked truth,” to Dijsselbloem’s “we seem to be losing time on Greece,” and Schaeuble’s “not a lot has happened on Greece,” it appears Greece has quickly folded once again and acquiesced to EU’s demands for harsher cuts.

NaturalNews – Julie Wilson – Hundreds Of US farmers Sue Syngenta Over GMO Corn – 9 March 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Corn growers in the U.S. lost an upwards of $3 billion in revenue last year after the Chinese boycotted shipments of American corn following the discovery of a genetically modified seed that had not yet been approved in the country.

Agrisure Viptera, a seed genetically altered to contain a protein that kills corn-eating bugs such as earworms and cutworms, had not been approved by China in November 2013 when it was found in several U.S. corn shipments.

China routinely refuses to approve genetically modified seeds before their own testing is complete. Continue reading

Steve Lendman – Proposed European Army: Good Idea Or Bad? – 9 March 2015

StevelendmanFor sure what the world needs now is less militarism, not more. World peace depends on demilitarization – especially eliminating all radiological, chemical, biological and other banned weapons.
The only positive argument for militarizing Europe more than already would be if doing so dented US-dominated NATO, – if it meant breaking with the Alliance aimed at eliminating it altogether.
Not for reasons EU Commission head Jean-Claude Junker cites. He’s a former Luxembourg prime minister. His proposal is polar opposite what’s needed. It’s lunacy.

In yet another example of the growing trend of the process of acclimatization of the general public to an open military presence on American streets as well as greater cooperation between the US Military and civilian law enforcement, South Carolina was recently the scene of a statewide “emergency preparedness” drill that incorporated both of these aspects in a visible form.
