US, UN, EU, Russia to meet on Mideast in late January. Nasrallah Vows Attack on Israel ‘For Syria Strikes’.

WEB Notes: More peace at the upper levels. Notice how we hear these peace talks, but then we have news about US and Russia going to war. Mass confusion in these end times. Concerning the second article and Nasrallah. Israel has attacked Syria so many times now I have lost count.

Eventually they will slap back.

(Source: Economic Collapse Blog) – Central banks lie.  That is what they do.  Not too long ago, the Swiss National Bank promised that it would defend the euro/Swiss franc currency peg with the “utmost determination”.  But on Thursday, the central bank shocked the financial world by abruptly abandoning it.  More than three years ago, the Swiss National Bank announced that it would not allow the Swiss franc to fall below 1.20 to the euro, and it has spent a mountain of money defending that peg.  But now that it looks like the EU is going to launch a very robust quantitative easing program, the Swiss National Bank has thrown in the towel.  It was simply going to cost way too much to continue to defend the currency floor.

Pentagon to deploy 400-plus troops to train and equip Syrian opposition
