North Korea suspends last project with South, Putin cites Chernobyl

WEB Notes: Make no mistake about it. North Korea is no threat to the United States. Let’s not soon forget it was just a few years ago that NK couldn’t get their rockets off the launch pad and it’s only been suspected that they detonated a nuclear device. There is a big difference between detonating a device and putting a warhead on a missile. Let’s settle down and use common sense. NK moved a single rocket to their east coast for an attack on the US? First, that shows weakness and no nation would launch an attack with a single rocket.

Let’s remember, NK is one of the nations along with Syria and Iran that the International Bankers don’t own (Watch, America: Freedom to Fascism under the videos section). Could this be why we hear so much about war? Could it be a diversion for the financial crisis? What just happened in Cyprus? How about a cover for the millions upon millions of dollars in cash and weapons that are being given to the rebels in Syria for their final push on Damascus?

Congress returns to try to reach final deals on major issues of immigration, gun control

Congress returns Monday for a pivotal week in which lawmakers will attempt to reach agreements on proposals for gun-control and immigration-reform — perhaps the two biggest issues in Washington this year.

Though the Senate has been working on both issues only since the new Congress began in January, Washington lawmakers have tried for years to draft comprehensive immigration reform, while the issue of gun-control was thrust upon them after 20 first-graders were killed in a December 2012 mass shooting.

Israel: US, West Must Threaten to Attack Iran Within Next Month

The latest round of talks between the P5+1 and Iran came screeching to a halt this weekend when Iran offered a proposal to settle the issue once and for all, a proposal which appears to have made Western nations, which were hoping to milk these do-nothing summits for many more years, exceedingly uncomfortable.

Not that this is over with, however, it’s business as usual, and for Israel that means insisting that the latest round of talks proves the need for a war. Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz is demanding that the US and other Western nations immediately issue an ultimatum to Iran to submit entirely or face invasion.

Abbas schedules Palestinian “civil intifada” for April 15, to peak during peace talks

When US Secretary of State John Kerry meets Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) Monday, April 8, after flying in from Turkey, he will try and talk him out of launching what Abbas is calling in briefings to Palestinian activists a “civil intifada (uprising)” against Israel without guns. It is scheduled to April 15 on the eve of Israel’s national Day of Remembrance for its War Dead and Independence celebrations.

Kerry will remind Abbas of his pledge to President Barack Obama when they met in Ramallah on March 21 to abjure violent action while the United States is actively promoting direct negotiations with Israel.

Russian War Games send a Strong Message against NATO Intervention in Syria?

Is there a connection between events in Syria (maybe even US tension with North Korea) and Russia’s impromptu Black Sea war games that started on March 28, 2013?

While on his way from Durban in South Africa, where the BRICS — Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa — announced they were forming a new development bank to challenge the IMF and World Bank, Russia’s Vladimir Putin gave the go ahead for unscheduled war games in the Black Sea. By themselves the games mean little, but in a global context they mean a lot.

Army Labeled Evangelicals as Religious Extremists

A U.S. Army training instructor listed Evangelical Christianity and Catholicism as examples of religious extremism along with Al Qaeda and Hamas during a briefing with an Army Reserve unit based in Pennsylvania, Fox News has learned.

“We find this offensive to have Evangelical Christians and the Catholic Church to be listed among known terrorist groups,” said Ron Crews, executive director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. “It is dishonorable for any U.S. military entity to allow this type of wrongheaded characterization.”

Pentagon to Buy Russian Helicopters Despite Ban

The US Department of Defense said Thursday it plans to sidestep a Congressional ban to purchase 30 helicopters from Russian state-owned defense firm Rosoboronexport, despite objections from US lawmakers who allege that the firm has equipped the Syrian government to commit brutal crimes against civilians.
“The Department of Defense (DOD) has notified Congress of its intent to contract with Rosoboronexport for 30 additional Mi-17 rotary-wing aircraft to support the Afghanistan National Security Forces (ANSF) Special Mission Wing,” Pentagon spokesman James Gregory told RIA Novosti in emailed comments.

5 of 10 Top Economies in the World Drop the Dollar

The U.S Dollar is quickly losing its status as the world reserve currency. Five of the top ten economies in the world, plus a few others, no longer use the dollar as an intermediary currency for trade. This trend poses a huge risk to the dollar and the United States along with it.

ZeroHedge points out today that Australia, the world’s 12th-ranked economy, has now joined a growing list of nations that have agreed to bypass the dollar in bilateral trade with China. China, ranked 2nd behind the U.S., also has similar agreements with Japan (3rd), Brazil (6th), India (9th), and Russia (10th).
