Germany’s Dependence on Fossil Fuels and Russian Gas

When Hausfrau – Volksfuhrer Merkel’s grip on Germany seemed unassailable she was free to let loose several personal sacred cows on the German people. One of course was her disastrous ‘open doors’ immigration police, another was the eqully disastrous green enegry policy, and now that is in ruins too.

from Institute For Energy Research

Germany embarked on Energiewende in 2010 with the goal of eventually making Germany independent of fossil fuels. The idea was to phase out oil, coal, and natural gas to allow for drastic reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. Since 2009, Germany has spent over a hundred billion euros on solar and wind energy, but carbon dioxide emissions did not decline over that period. In fact, they have risen by about 2 percent. The financial obligations from the expansion of wind and solar energy will continue to burden taxpayers for another two decades and will end-up costing German consumers around 550 billion euros.

In 2017, Germany’s energy consumption was fueled primarily by fossil fuels (79 percent). Renewables including hydroelectric power provided 15 percent and nuclear energy 5 percent. Despite the generating sector providing just about one-fifth of Germany’s total energy consumption, it was targeted to phase out its fossil fuel generating capacity under Energiewende. When the tsunami hit Japan in 2011, Germany decided to phase out its nuclear power first despite the unlikelihood of a similar disaster hitting Germany. Germany’s nuclear generation has declined by 56 percent since it reached its peak in 2001. Germany’s nuclear plants are to be shut down by 2022 and its coal-fired plants are to be closed by 2030.

Germany backs up its wind and solar units with coal-fired and natural gas-fired generation. Germany has 36 billion metric tons of coal reserves and produces domestically about half the coal it consumes. Despite its desire to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, Germany is bulldozing centuries-old villages and displacing their residents to make way for open-pit brown coal (lignite) mines. Having very few reserves of natural gas, it imports natural gas by pipeline with over half of it coming from Russia. Germany is Europe’s biggest natural gas consumer, and its demand is expected to rise by about 1 percent over the next five years as it phases out its nuclear fleet.

War and Politics Behind Mass Displacement in Africa, Not Climate Change – UCL
A report from a new study conducted by University College London’s may cause a stir in the climate scaremongering industry.

India And Pakistan: Inching Toward Their Final War?

Sourced from an article by Mohammed Ayoob

india pakistan conflict
The forgotten nuclear powers, India and Pakistan are edging towards war (Image source: LA Times)

India and Pakistan are the nuclear powers mainstream media tends to forget as they focus on USA, Russia, China and North Korea, but both have between 120 and 140 nuclear warheads, probably not equipped with the latest guidance and stealth technology, but good enough to do a lot od damage according to the Arms Control Association. A report published in 2015 by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the Stimson Center claims that Pakistan may be outpacing India in terms of its nuclear stockpile, and may possess 350 nuclear warheads within the next five to ten years. A 2016 SIPRI report also concluded that Pakistan now has more nuclear warheads than India.

However, what should most concern us about the nuclear-weapons policies of the neighbouring states is not the size of the stockpiles, but their radically different nuclear doctrines.

The major difference between the two countries’ nuclear doctrines is that while India has renounced first use of nuclear weapons, Pakistan has refused to do so by reserving its right to use nuclear weapons in the face of India’s conventional superiority.

So far aroundthe uncertainty Pakistan’s nuclear capabilities is preventing a major conflagration in South Asia. Pakistan’s refusal to reject first use, and its emphasis on building stockpiles of tactical nuclear weapons and short-range missiles can be explained in light of its conventional-force inferiority. It is in fact a mirror image of the American nuclear doctrine as applied to central Europe during the Cold War. The United States refused to disavow first use of nuclear weapons, and deployed tactical nuclear weapons in central Europe on a large scale, because of NATO’s presumed inferiority in terms of conventional power against that deployed by the Warsaw Pact.

But for Pakistan, the uncertainty introduced by its nuclear doctrine has delivered a bonus. The nuclear threat provided Pakistan with the shield behind which terrorist groups armed and trained by Islamabad, such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Muhammad, can engage in casing havoc not only in Indian-administered Kashmir but also in other parts of India. The fear of provoking a nuclear response from Pakistan has prevented India from retaliating to these provocations, use of its superior conventional forces to inflict a crushing defeat on Pakistan.

India did not retaliate even when a massive terrorist operation launched from Pakistan targeted India’s financial capital, Mumbai, in November 2008. This attack lasted for more than sixty hours and left at least 174 people dead.

However, it seems that the logic of this deterrence is fast eroding. Attacks such as the one in Mumbai, and subsequent assaults on Indian military installations in Kashmir and elsewhere, have also provided justification for India’s hard-line Hindu nationalists to whip up support for a military response, thus putting pressure on the Indian government to abandon its policy of diplomatic responses. In the past few months, Indian retaliatory attacks have targeted not only terrorist bases but also Pakistani military facilities, causing significant casualties among Pakistani forces.

The escalation in the last two years in terror attacks, especially by Jaish-e-Muhammad, on Indian military targets in Kashmir and surrounding Indian states has made the situation very perilous. In the past several months, terrorist groups operating from Pakistan with the complicity of the government and military authorities have undertaken several major attacks, causing significant loss of life in India.

A major attack on the Uri camp in Jammu and Kashmir in September 2016, left seventeen military personnel dead and shocked the Indian government into reassessing its strategy in response to such attacks. On September 29, 2016, India launched a “surgical strike” against terrorist bases in Pakistan. Although there has been speculation that India conducted similar strikes before that, it was the first time Delhi indicated publicly that it was ready to launch major retaliatory attacks against targets in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

In the latest incident, in February 2018, Jaish terrorists attacked an Indian military camp in Jammu; five army personnel and four militants were killed. In retaliation, the Indian army destroyed a Pakistani army post with the help of rocket launchers, killing, according to Indian sources, twenty-two Pakistani personnel. This tit-for-tat exchange is reaching dangerous proportions.

The Pakistani military tends to downplay Indian incursions and retaliatory attacks, while bigging up their own, and true to form they refused to recognize the seriousness of the escalating cross border violence, mainly because it does not want to appear weak in the eyes of the Pakistani public which has a culture of honour and revenge, and is likely to clamor for retribution. However, as more and more Pakistanis get internet access the military cannot continue to downplay Indian attacks, or increasing fatalities. There is the danger that at some point, either by miscalculation or by design, an Indian surgical strike in Pakistani territory will push the Pakistani military to retaliate in force.

Made up largely of centre Social Democrat parties and centre right Christian Democrats they command an automatic majority in any vote taken by the European Parliament and are unerringly federalist, globalist and anything but democratic.

And they are unerringly supportive of America’s efforts to start a war with Russia.

“The time of talk and persuasion with Russia is over,” MEP and Vice-President of the European People’s Party (EPP) Jacek Saryusz-Wolski told a meeting of the European Parliament on Tuesday, 21 April, “Now it’s time for a tough policy, a realistic policy, and concentration on defence and security, because the eastern flank of the EU feels vitally, existentially threatened.”

Trump’s leaked review of the US’s nukes seems to confirm Russia has an underwater nuclear doomsday weapon

President Donald Trump’s nuclear arsenal review, which wasleaked to HuffPost, seems to suggest their is a belief in the US military ans state security community that Russia is developing a new, submarine – borne, nuclear weapon that experts have described as ‘a doomsday weapon.’ which could devastate US cities in a single attack.

“Russia is developing and deploying new nuclear warheads and launchers,” the leaked document says, noting that the system is thought to be “a new intercontinental, nuclear-armed, undersea autonomous torpedo.”

Representations of designs for such a nuclear torpedo have been spotted in TV footage of a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and military chiefs in November 2015.

The video showed plans for a submarine that could theoretically travel underwter for 6,200 miles at 100 knots and deliver a megaton-class thermonuclear weapon to create “wide areas of radioactive contamination,” according to a BBC translation of captured screenshots of the document.

Since the BBC reported that meeting and caputred screenshots of material describing the new submarine weapons system, many have disputed the notion that Russia would build such a system. But the leaked draft of Trump’s nuclear posture review indicates the US government at its highest levels believes the torpedo, known as the “oceanic multi-purpose Status-6 system,” is real.

Jeffrey Lewis, a leading academic on nuclear matters, quickly gave the Status-6 a catchier name: “Putin’s doomsday machine.”

When the plans for the Status-6 leaked in 2015, the Brookings Institution characterized their appearance on camera as deliberatepropaganda rather than sloppy security.

Not only could the weapon obliterate the area with potentially 100 times the power of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, but it could also leave behind long-lasting radioactive waste.

Lewis has described the weapon as “bat-shit crazy” and “absurd.” He previously told Business Insider in an interview that the idea was “deeply, deeply, deeply immoral” and that the US never considers weapons like this for its nuclear arsenal.

Somehow we find it hard to believe that if the world’s greatest warmongers, the USA, had the knowhow to build such a weapon there is any chance they would let ethical considerations stop them from building it.

Is USA Preparing For Nuclear War With Russia?

That headline might look like sensationalist click bait to you, but the nuclear scientists who contribute to Bulletin Of The Atomic Scientists appear to think it is an accurate reflection of the US Government’s current strategic thinking. The august journal that serves as the newsletter for members of their profession carries some very worrying news on US plans to modernise its nuclear arsenal.

The Atomic Scientists fsvourite bedtime reading published, in the latest edition,March 2017, an article which opened:

The US nuclear forces modernization program has been portrayed to the public as an effort to ensure the reliability and safety of warheads in the US nuclear arsenal, rather than to enhance their military capabilities. In reality, however, that program has implemented revolutionary new technologies that will vastly increase the targeting capability of the US ballistic missile arsenal. This increase in capability is astonishing — boosting the overall killing power of existing US ballistic missile forces by a factor of roughly three — and it creates exactly what one would expect to see, if a nuclear-armed state were planning to have the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.

“A surprise first strike.” That phrase is particularly worrying, because previously the justification for the existence of nuclear weapons has always been deterrence through mutually assured destruction. There are many people in Washington of course who have lost contact with reality and in their deranged state can actually convince themselves that a nuclear was is winnable. Anyone who is now thinking, “hold on there, mutually assured destruction might apply to everybody else but what about American exceptionalism. Well what about it. The idea that a nuclear war can be won with minimal levels of destruction in the USA seems to be based on the development of one, as yet untested piece of technology.

Because the innovations in the super-fuze appear, to the non-technical eye, to be minor, policymakers outside of the US government (and probably inside the government as well) have completely missed its revolutionary impact on military capabilities and its important implications for global security.

This vast increase in US nuclear targeting capability, which has largely been concealed from the general public, has serious implications for strategic stability and perceptions of US nuclear strategy and intentions.
Russian planners will almost surely see the advance in fuzing capability as empowering an increasingly feasible US preemptive nuclear strike capability — a capability that would require Russia to undertake countermeasures that would further increase the already dangerously high readiness of Russian nuclear forces. Tense nuclear postures based on worst-case planning assumptions already pose the possibility of a nuclear response to false warning of attack. The new kill capability created by super-fuzing increases the tension and the risk that US or Russian nuclear forces will be used in response to early warning of an attack — even when an attack has not occurred.

The report was authored by America’s moist senior experts in the analysis of weaponry and especially of the geostrategic balance between nations: Hans Kristensen, Matthew McKinzie, and Theodore Postol. The authors explain why an accidental start of World War III or global annihilation would be likeiier from Russia than from the U.S.:

Russia does not have a functioning space-based infrared early warning system but relies primarily on ground-based early warning radars to detect a US missile attack. Since these radars cannot see over the horizon, Russia has less than half as much early-warning time as the United States. (The United States has about 30 minutes, Russia 15 minutes or less.) Really? Have these refugees from reality not heard of Son of Satan

In other words they are claiming (wrongly as it happens, but hey they’re scientists – they don’t live in the real world,) that Trump would have about 30 minutes to decide that Putin had launched a blitz-first-strike attack, while Putin would have less than 15 minutes to judge whether Trump had. Here’s where it gets really crazy; if withing these periods, neither side can conclude with certainty that no nuclear strike had been launched by the other, then the ultimate authority would be obliged to launch an attack, upon the assumption that not to do so would result not only in a toxic planet with nuclear winter and universal starvation, but also in a humiliating and scandalous absence of retaliation against the aggressor.

The astounding assumptions about American technological superiority are what is most l;ikely to lead to nuclear disaster. I read in a novel recently of a hacker attack by a non-national force whose mindset permitted them to believe nuclear destruction was justified in order to glorify their god, and perpetrated a hacker attack on satellite early warning systems to create the appearance that east and west has simultaneously launched nuclear armed ICBMs to provoke real missile launches in response. That was just a fictional scenario, but is technically feasible, if such a non governmental terrorist force existed to exploit the many volnerabilities in the technology we are committed to. But such as terrorist force is – IS – IS – impossible is it not?

Inevitably, the personal morality and mindset of national leaders come in to play in that type of situation, but with so little time to gather and analyse information and decide on a course of action who can say decisions would be rational. Against that the worst prediction from the Warmageddonist lobby of the risks posed by global warming look about as threatening as a smelly fart.

Russia Unveils Son Of Satan – This Is Why We Told Americans To Vote Anyone But Hillary.

The election is over, and part from the wailing and gnashing of teeth from heartbroken Clinton supporters who refuse to believe the war candidate lost, with luck we will have heard the last of Hillary Clinton, her serial rapist husband Bill and their plug ugly daughter Chelsea.

Trump of course will be in the news probably for the next four years and all of us in alt – media, after taking a break maybe, will be scrutinizing his every move for as long as he is president. One good thing about Trump, and the reason why, although this blog never supported him we opposed Hillary Clinton so determinedly, is that while Trump has said he does not want war with Russia, Hillary was mad for war with anyone and everyone.

And, for those deluded people who cling to a fallacious belief in American military invincibility, here’s why Trump and all sane people are against war with the two major military powers in the east, Russia and China …

News agency Zvezda reports Russia has today  announced the start to field trials of its latest generation Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) the RS-28 Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, intended to replace the existing R-36M2 Voevoda (NATO designation SS-18 “Satan”).

According to the Zvedza report,  the two-stage, liquid-fuelled RS-28 weighs 100 tonnes, and is capable of delivering 12 warheads via its multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicle (MIRV) payload at a range of 10,000km (6000 miles).

The RS-28 employs “an array of advanced antimissile countermeasures” plus “higher speed performance”, designed to thwart any anti-ballistic missile (ABM) system. In other words it is designed to evade US missile shield defences. There is widespread speculation  that they would have a conventional hypersonic version like the US’s Advanced Hypersonic Weapon or the Chinese WU-14 and could be used as a precision intercontinental weapon in a non-nuclear conflict.

The allegedly unstoppable missile is “capable of wiping out parts of the earth the size of Texas or France”, Zvezda cheerfully explains. What is particularly worrying for US defence chiefs responsible for advising the war crazu hawks of the Washington political establishment is the ‘known know’ that in response to the USA deploying nuclear missiles to Poland and Romania, earlier this year Vladimir Putin ordered Russian ICBM’s launched from mobile platforms similar to the one pictured above, to the Kaliningrad enclave on the shore of the Baltic, form where cities on the east coast of the USA are withing the Sarmat’s range.

Further tech details have not been released, although defence experts IHS Markit assume the RS-28s will use the same RD-274 engine cluster (4 x RD-273 units) burning a hypergolic mix of unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (UDMH) and N2O4 (nitrogen textroxide) that lift the R-36M2 Voevoda. The advantage of this system is that the fuel components are comparatively easy to store over long periods, as opposed to cryogenic fuels.

The Object 4202 rocket was fired thousands of miles from the Yasny Launch Base in Russia to the far-east peninsula of Kamchatka with Kremlin officials calling the test a ‘success’.   When it enters service in 2018, the new ICBM will occupy the same silos currently housing the R-36M2, although the facilities will require modification to accommodate the Son of Satan.

Speaking to the US Senate Armed Services Committee this month, Breedlove said that ” Russia and the Assad regime are deliberately weaponizing migration from Syria in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve.” These irrational remarks, and the mainstream media’s ability to convey them with a straight face, are an indication of a broken system, experts suggest.

The Business of War: Defense Sales Keep Economies Of Manufacturing Nations Afloat
Tens of thousands have been killed and millions displaced due to ‘humanitarian’ interventions by the developed nations (led by the USA, France and the UKm the FUKUS axis) in the domestic politics of third world nation. Usually  the interventions support rebel groups who if they came to power would be far more oppressive and brutal regime than the one they replaced.

U.S. To Station Nuclear Weapons in Germany Against Russia
Germany’s ZDF public television network reported on September 22nd, “New U.S. Atomic Weapons to Be Stationed in Germany,”  that the U.S. will station 20 new nuclear bombs in Germany, each being four times the destructive power of the one that was used on Hiroshima . Hans Kristensen, the Director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists, says, “With the new bombs the boundaries blur between tactical and strategic nuclear weapons.”

Assad Says Europe Is Responsible For Refugee Crisis: “If You’re Worried About Them, Stop Supporting Terrorists”
As the tide of refugees fleeing Syria’s bloody civil war, swelled by African economic migrants masquerading as Syrians continues to tear the European Union (EU) apart, and as Brussels struggles to formulate a coherent policy for handling the crisis as member states go their own way with measures to close border crossing points, divert migrants to other member nations, or …

Is Russian Army Beginning to Engage in Syria
Those of us with eyes to see and ears to hear (h/t some bloke called Jesus) have know of the involvement of US troops in Syria for a considerable time. Given that the American military are active in over a hundred nations around the world,  Washington’s meddling in the domestic politics of soveeign nations comes as no surprise. It is more disturbing to learn that Russian troops are getting involved in Syria, to support Assad in his struggle against American – backed revolutionaries …

Massive Explosion in China: Do We Know the Full Story?
The massive explosion at a chemical plant in the city of Tianjin in northern China was a shocking eveny by any standard. But as usual in recent years, once the initial horror recedes the unfortunate accident narrative starts to unravel. The first thing we notice is that the disaster is very convenient for certain parties, the second is that official news reports just don’t make sense, and the third is that eye witness reports contradict the edited news stories. Now read on …

Russia Just Sent out a Message NATO Should Better Listen To
The key paragraph from the latest official Russian naval doctrine is that Putin and his military advisers have sent a clear message that NATO encroachment is unacceptable. To be honest, there is nothing earth shattering in this, The Daily Stirrer and many other alternative media news and analysis sites have been warning for about two years that Obama’s foreign policy was making conflict inevitable.

Stupidity Of America’s Lust For War With Russia
We have reported many times on the American attempts to provoke Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin in the hope that Puting will then fire the first shot in the war the USA so desperately needs to revive its failed economy, unify its dysfunctional society and restore is to the position of dominant global superpower …

Washington is pushing Kiev to military solution of Donbass conflict
The US is inciting Kiev to end the crisis in eastern Ukraine by force, said the Russian foreign minister citing US support of the recent Ukrainian law on the special self-governing status of Donbass, which Moscow says undermines the Minsk-2 deal.


Kiev Breaches Minsk Agreement Within Hours

We all knew the ceasefire agreed by Angela Merkel, Francoise Hollande, Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian Nazi leader Poroschenko would not hold. The people whose country stands to gain most from war, that is of course Barack Obama and John Kerry, President and secretary of State of the USA, the country that wants and needs perpetual war, were trying derail the fragile deal while the four leaders were still negotiating.

The Hard-Core Nazis Who Rule In Kiev Were Put There By EU and USA
“Their children will hole up in basements!” screeched Ukrainian “President” Poroshenko, the oligarch and “Chocolate King.” “This is how we will win this war!” He was talking about the children of the people of East Ukraine, whose cities are being bombed from the air by the US-supported Ukrainian military. Thousands have been killed, mostly civilians: Ukraine’s war on its own people has displaced nearly a million people …

Are Europe And USA Drifting Apart Over Warmonger President Obama’s Aggressive Attitude To Russia?
The entire foreign policy of the Obama Administration in the USA is based on having its European alliesd give a veneer of respectability to America’s warmongering, economic imperialism and blatant bullying of smaller nations. But has the rent bot President overreached himself in trying to bully Russia’s Vladimir Putin?

Russia along with three quarters of the world, is isolated
The latest EU sanctions announced today after last weeks NATO summit have left Russia increasingly isolated in the world according to mainstream media reports of the response from western governments.

Without American leadership, democracy is in peril? Not really.
Much of the corporate propaganda spouting mainstream media are forecasting a bad outcome from the current chaose in Ukraine, with ISIS aka ISIL aka Islamic State in Syria and Iraq and with other local conflicts that are part of a cultural war. The consensus is that the west is currently not winning because of the failure of American leadership. This is untrue, most of the problems exist because America is leading the world towards war.

The Latest Misinformation Out Of Kiev
Sometimes we think things are cooling down in Ukraine, media ficus on the propaganda war between the kiev government and its American and European backers and the pro Russian separatists, backed by The Kremlin distracts us from what is going on on the ground. But there is still plenty going on on the ground

Funny Things Happen In Ukraine – The Destriction Of The Convoy That Didn’t Exist
The Ukraine Government claimed they had destroyed a Russian convoy that entered their territory. East Ukrainian rebels denounced it as an atrocity. Two British journalists working near the Russia / Ukrain border said they had witnessed the carnage. Russia said there had been no convoy. Independent sources said satellite pictures showed no evidence of wreckage. WTF was that all about?

Ebola, Stock Market, Nuclear War. It’s all going tits up. WTF?

We’re fucked.
How fucked are we, you might well ask.
We’re fucking fucked, that’s how fucked we are.

Woke up this morning (I know that sounds like the opening of a blues song, but bear with me), leisurely breakfast, watched the news – Osborne wittering about how well they economy was doing (which was an ominous sign), read for a while, drove Mrs T down the shops. Came in, turned on the computer.

First thing I see, Greece is facing economic meltdown. Nothing new there then, Greece is always facing economic meltdown. Next item:

“We’re Screwed” Says White House Correspondent and Government Document Surfaces Exposing the Real Truth Behind Ebola

by Lisa Haven, Pakalert Press

News about the widening Ebola outbreak is getting worse by the day. Thus far, 7,000 persons have been infected and about 3,500 have died—including our first official case in Dallas, Texas. Furthermore, rumors have been circulating about the possibility of Ebola infected persons from Arizona all the way to Washington D.C.

If these headlines have left you wondering whether we are nearing a global pandemic with scenes reminiscent of movies like “Outbreak”, then here is something to ponder, at a recent Ebola conference White House Correspondent with CBS News Major Garrett, accidently left his mic on and was caught saying “Were Screwed” about the Ebola virus

But that’s not all, recently I came across a document put out by medical professionals (and others) titled, Hemorrhagic Fever Virus as Biological Weapon Medical and Public Health Management. This document revealed more about Ebola then I wished to know!

Then I read that we are closer than ever to war with Russia and China over Ukraine and Syria, thanks to the stupidity of our politicians who just can’t see that when the west starts meddling in the affairs of nations with vastly different cultures to our and when we try to impose on them by force, our culture and values, things never turn out well.

Due to our Stupid Politicians – Nuclear War Could Be Near.

There are a lot of stupid politicians the world over, mot of the stupidest it seems in the USA and UK. The US, backed by the UK and EU are dangerously close to stumbling into a war with Russia over Ukraine that could go nuclear and kill hundreds of millions of people in a single day, one of the world’s leading authorities on the consequences of nuclear conflict warned in Washington this week.

“It’s an incredibly dangerous situation. … If there’s a nuclear war tonight, that’s the Northern Hemisphere (of the entire world) gone, Dr. Helen Caldicott told a National Press Club Newsmakers news conference on Wednesday. She was speaking on the topic: “Ukraine: Is Nuclear Conflict Likely?”

And finally another headline caught my eye and I looked at the stock markets to find that stock markets in Europe, America and Asia are collapsing. Oh well, that’s better news. I put my investments into safer havens over a year ago. 😀

So how will all this turn out. Check back 28 Days Later and I’ll let you know.

Well The Iran Nuclear Deal Didn’t Last Long

Earlier today I posted a somewhat sceptical blog on the alleged deal struck between western foreign ministers and the Iranian government that is being hailed as a triumph for western diplomacy and the Obama administration’s foreign policy of Kumbayaism.

Basically Obama and Cameron sent John Kerry and William Hague over there to say, “Stop enriching uranium and you can come on over and fuck our bosses up the arse any time.”

This was not a great offer as no matter what western politicians might like to think, Iranians are none too keen on rent boys (well not openly anyway)

So after all the ballyhoo and “peace in our time” bollocks on television and radio and in this mornings papers we hear Mohammad Javad Zarif the Iranian Foreign Minister had this to say today.

“Western diplomats have said that one the main problems during the negotiations earlier this month was Iran’s insistence that it has the “right” to enrich uranium.

“Not only do we consider that Iran’s right to enrich is non-negotiable, but we see no need for that to be recognized as ‘a right,’ because this right is inalienable and all countries must respect that,” told ISNA news agency. Full story at Activist Post

Meanwhile, even as the six Foreign Ministers were cracking openm the champagne and slapping each other’s monkeys backs, The Jerusalem Post was running this story.

“Fars news agency quotes Tehran’s deputy nuclear chief as saying two nuclear reactors being planned in addition to Bushehr core.

Iran is planning to construct two new nuclear power plants in the near future, the Fars News Agency quoted a senior Iranian nuclear official as saying Saturday.

“The Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has put construction of the second and third (nuclear) power stations on its agenda due to the government’s programs and the emphasis laid by the President (Hassan Rouhani),” Fars quoted AEOI Deputy Chief Hossein Khalfi as saying. Iran currently has one such operational nuclear power plant at Bushehr.”

So much for western diplomacy.
