October 1 - North Korea: Spark could set off nuclear war
Artical: Wars And Rumors Of Wars
A North Korean minister
lashed out at the United States on Monday,
warning that its "hostile" policy has left the Korean peninsula a spark away
from a nuclear war.
Addressing the final session
of the U.N. General
Assembly's annual high-level meeting,
Minister Pak Kil Yon said the Koreas
have become "the world's most dangerous hotspot" and pledged to use
"mighty" military deterrent against any "reckless provocations."
"The only way to prevent war and ensure lasting peace
on the Korean
peninsula is to put an end to the U.S. hostile policy towards the
DPRK," he said, using the initials of the country's
official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Pak said Kim
is leading efforts to advance his father's economic
development program with his own "insight into the world," and is
implementing an "independent foreign policy" and opening a new chapter in
developing relations with friendly countries "not bound by the past."

September 30 - Kissinger, US intelligence community endorse "World Without Israel"
Artical: Israel And The Last Days
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been
vilified in the Western media for daring to imagine "a world without
Israel." But according to news reports,
Henry Kissinger and sixteen American
intelligence agencies agree that in the near future, Israel will no
longer exist. The New York Post
quotes Kissinger "word for word": In
10 years, there will be no more Israel.
The US Intelligence Community agrees, though
perhaps not on the precise 2022 expiration date.
Sixteen US intelligence agencies with a
combined budget over USD70 billion have issued an 82-page analysis
titled "Preparing for a Post-Israel Middle East."
The US intelligence report observes that the 700,000 Israeli
settlers illegally squatting on land stolen in 1967 - land that the
entire world agrees belongs to Palestine, not Israel - are not going
to pack up and leave peacefully. Since the world
will never accept their ongoing presence on stolen land, Israel is
like South Africa in the late 1980s.
The sixteen US intelligence agencies
agree that Israel cannot withstand the coming
pro-Palestinian juggernaut consisting of the Arab Spring, the
Islamic Awakening, and the rise of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The US intelligence
community report says that in light
of these realities, the US government simply no longer has the
military and financial resources to continue propping up Israel
against the wishes of more than a billion of its neighbors. In order
to normalize relations with 57 Islamic countries, the report
suggests, the US will have to follow its own national interests and
pull the plug on Israel.
