Iran: EU oil embargo doomed to fail
EU oil sanctions doomed to fail: Iran

EU leaders issued a joint warning to Iran on Monday (1/23/2012) night, that the Islamic republic would face economic isolation if it didn't immediately abandon its nuclear ambitions.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said he would not accept the Iran's efforts to develop nuclear weapons. Cameron asserted it when the military tensions between Iran and the West continued to increase. In a rare joint statement with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Cameron warned Tehran that Iran would face economic isolation unless they immediately left its nuclear ambitions.

Their statement was, "We have no quarrel with the Iranian people. However, Iran's leadership has failed to restore the international confidence related to the peaceful nuclear program. We will not accept Iran to acquire the nuclear weapons."

The statement, which is a conclusion of intense activity during the day supported by an EU sanctions package that is "unprecedented", designed to suck the blood of the Iranian regime. Sanctions package also includes a prohibition to import Iranian oil to Europe.

The sanction was taken by Iran with challenge. A number of parties from the ruling regime warned, Iran would close the strategic Strait of Hormuz. Closure of the strait was seen as a move that would effectively close the Gulf which has been the oil shipping lanes of traffic and causing the world oil prices would skyrocket.

United States has warned Tehran that the closure of the strait (which channels a fifth of world oil exports) would trigger a massive military response from the West. The message was further confirmed at the weekend when the UK, U.S., and France sent six warships through the straits.

The tension came amid the growing concern that Tehran was getting closer to the developing of nuclear weapons. After negotiations to agree on new sanctions the European Union, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said, "There is no civilian explanation that makes sense for Iran's uranium enrichment program."

Member countries of the European Union import nearly 600,000 barrels of crude per day from Iran. Ban the export of gold, precious metals, and diamonds from Iran also have been applied along with the economic transactions and travel to the members of the Iranian regime.

Leading figures in Tehran responded to the new sanction with anger. Mohammad Kossari, Deputy Head of Foreign Affairs and Security Committee of the Iranian Parliament said, "If there are disturbances related to the sale of Iranian oil, the Strait of Hormuz will be closed." Senior politician Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh added, "In case there is a threat, closing the Strait of Hormuz is one of Iran's right."

But the British sources believe the full closure of the strait is still not possible because it will bring enormous adverse consequences for Tehran.

Yesterday (01/23/2012) The U.S. aircraft carrier, USS Admiral Lincoln, which carried 90 aircraft led a group of six boats acrossed the Strait of Hormuz. The ship was escorted by three other of the U.S. warships and a war ship from Britain and France. A source at the Ministry of Defence denied that it was a provocative step to increase pressure on Iran. The source added, "This is a statement which makes ​​it very clear, this is international waters, and all countries should respect that. It shows that we work in partnership and solidarity."

Professor Paul Stevens, a senior researcher at the institute think-tank Chatham House said he doubted Tehran would carry out its threat to block the strait for fear of triggering a "war" with the U.S.. Instead, he said, the blockade of oil would encourage the hardliners in Iran to launch a wave of terror attacks.

Professor Stevens said, a blockade of oil would not work because Tehran could ship its oil through a pipeline to Turkey and Egypt. He added, "History has been filled by the failure of the oil embargo. But it seems the lessons of history has been ignored by the decision makers in the EU."

Finally, Ahmadinejad says Iran ready for nuclear talks

Maybe Iran will not develop nuclear weapons this year, because it does not have sufficient capability to produce uranium weapons. This statement was reported to the Institute for Science and International Security on Wednesday (01/25/12). This report seemed to differ with the International Atomic Energy Agency report in November 2011 which said Iran has made significant progress on nuclear weapons. Some European intelligence officials denied the U.S. National Intelligence Estimate's report issued in 2003, which said Iran had stopped to develop its nuclear program. The Europeans believe Iran has never stopped in nuclear's scientific research and its development efforts.

JAPAN : FUKUSHIMA 2011



Fukushima City which is located in Iwaki coastal region, northeastern Japan is the center of the leading commercial and industrial areas in Japan. In this city also embedded the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor as nuclear power plants. It was moving the wheel of life more than 120 thousand people who inhabited the city positioned 240 kilometers in north of Tokyo. Just as the bad news from the sky, the incidence of devastating earthquake measuring 8.9 on the Ritcher Scale followed by tsunami waves on March 11, 2011 and resulted in leakage at Fukushima's nuclear reactor tube. The prosperous city which inhabited mostly by businessmen became silent, uninhabited. The threat of nuclear radiation that led to the death and disability had been encouraging the residents to stay away from the city.

The edge of its city streets filled with colorful billboard now has become deserted. Corner of the city which was usually passed by the commercial vehicle, now it's just overgrown by grass began to creep into the pavement. Places of entertainment that never slept all day, now it's finally asleep, not awake. This beautiful and cool city as if transformed into a ghost town. A city that will be dead for 20 years --- the time needed for its re-turn --- after the threat of nuclear radiation disappears by itself.

Obama's State of the Union: An Optimistic President Talks to a Pessimistic Nation

Obama points to income inequality, calls for millionaires' tax in address

Bush's Speech, Word by Word

The political and world economy condition are now under attack by two crises: the financial crisis in Europe and the political crisis in the Middle East, including Iran's nuclear and oil crisis. Although Iran and the Middle East crisis continue to warm, but the impact is not like the Euro crisis. The financial crisis in Europe is considered more deadly. If Europe really collapses and the Euro zone disappears, it will disrupt the world economy, very significant, and we will be exposed to its negative effects. Specific impact is the decline of the stock market, and the world economy will slow significantly. Foreign investment will dry up because of all the export-oriented companies will feel the enormous pressure. Therefore, the government should really keep domestic growth.

Obama makes case for tax rises for rich








A few nights ago I saw the reruns of the Fox News debate (Mike Huckabee) on youtube. He asserted that we couldn't leave Iraq until we could leave it with honor. When he spoke about the importance of honor, he reminded me of Japanese army's doctrine in World War II. It makes one wonder whether Mike Huckabee understands the meaning of honor. The war in Iraq has lost its credibility because of lies to justify our involvement has been exposed and each the pretext of self defense was removed. What honor is there in the killing of civilians who are trying to protect their homes? What honor is there in the country which continues to contaminate them with depleted uranium? What honor is in the battle with the most sophisticated modern weapons against the people who use the most basic and just trying to regain their self determination? What honor is there in destroying the life and property to some profit, hmm?

What is he talking about? Doesn't he realize that if he wins the seat of Republican's presidential candidate --as anticipated by the strategists from Obama camp-- then, it's almost predictably Obama will win the U.S. presidency in 2012? ehhehehe....

The U.S is predicted to collapse if it still uses the expenses system as it is now. With the debt that has penetrated the range of $ 14.3 trillion per May 2011, how can the U.S. plan to deploy a new war and survives from the war that has be...en held so far? Moreover, to attack Iran, ...ah, you might be out of business. The Pentagon's madness with the war and weaponry has crippled the local economy and brought misery to the American people themselves. Funds of charitable institutions for humanitarian aid has been reduced, because the people who used to supply the funds before the crisis have now turned into beneficiaries.

Throughout Wednesday (January 25, 2012), the earth was like being bombarded by high energy particles due to the biggest sun storm since 2005. But its impact was unextraordinary. Only in a few locations in the U.S., the connection to mobile phones and Global Position System (GPS) was disconnected.

Doug Biesecker, a physicist from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Space Weather Prediction Center stated the disruption caused by radiation which disrupted the satellite performance. GPS was affected because the earth's electromagnetic field was disturbed. "This happens if the cell tower is located in the same direction with the sun. Your call is suddenly disconnected, but you don't realize it." Biesecker said. He explained the phenomenon began with a burst of sun on Sunday (22 January 2012) night. This incident was launched the tsunami of cosmic energy in the form of charged particles, static radio and X-rays that traversed a distance of 93 million kilometers toward the Earth.

To avoid the communication problems caused by radiation, the U.S. airlines, Delta Airlines diverted the flight route that crossed the polar region. "Polar route is deflected more toward the south than usual," said a spokesman for Delta Airliner, Anthony Black.

In other places, the Solar storm brought the beauty of Aurora in the polar sky. This natural phenomenon could be seen, among others from Chicago, USA, in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, the Aurora could be seen in Tasmania and New Zealand.

M E M O R Y : Only one meaning to the bridge

With sturdy the Szechenyi Lanchid was standing on the Danube river or Duna in Hungarian language, I walked up the chain bridge made in the 19th century on a summer day. Dynamic Pest was behind my back, while the presumptuous Buda was looming in front of me. Szechenyi Lanchid was not only a steel construction for Hungary's capital icon. In its self there were characters, memories and spirit of a nation for hundreds of years. Glory of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Enormity of the World War II, invasion of the Soviet Union and the collapse of communism had become crystals in it.

Although different in function and style of architecture, I always found a similar crystal at various bridges that I went through. I did not see the bridge just as a connecting point to another point on the other side.

From the bridges on the river Danube in Vienna (Austria), the River Arno in Florence (Italy), the River Elbe in Dresden (Germany), the river Sein in Paris (France) until the river Aa far north of the Netherlands, I learned.
*****

In the province of Groningen, northern Netherlands, there's a 16th-century fortress named Bourtange. The fortress is now a tourist center, is surrounded by a moat with a red bridge.


In the Netherlands, the role of a bridge is crucial for fishing vessel traffic that passes through the canals and rivers. The bridge is found in a village in south of Groningen city, in the spring some time ago.



A pedestrian bridge divides the river Danube in Vienna, Austria some time ago. Almost every evening during the summer, a variety of restaurants and entertainment venues on both sides of the river are visited by many city residents and tourists.


Renaissance. Some of the bridges to save a long history. Ponte Vecchio bridge is the pride of Florence, Italy which has stood since the 10th century.

Notre Dame: A tour boat crossed under Pont Saint-Michel, a bridge near Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France.

Buda and Pest: Szechenyi Lanchid connects the Buda city and Pest city in Hungary. The bridge was built in 1849, was named for its originator, Count Istvan Szechenyi.


Mute Witness. Construction of stone over the Arno river, Florence( Italy)is a mute witness of events, ranging from Renaissance glory to mobilization of Nazi troops in World War II.

Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani was found not guilty by Pakistan's Supreme Court. However, he had to submit to the pressure and asked Switzerland to reopen the corruption cases against the President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari.

The assurance was given by Gilani lawyer, Aitzaz Ahsan indicated Yousuf Raza Gilani off from further confrontation with the courts when previously he agreed to come to court on Next Thursday. (01/26)

Pakistan's SupremeCourt has previously asked Gilani to open Ali Zardari's corruption cases. However, Gilani was ignoring it. Thus, the Supreme Court considers it was the contempt of court. "Asif Ali Zardari has complete immunity as president. There is no harm in writing a letter to the Swiss government. "He enjoys the immunity in Pakistan and abroad as long as he is president," said Ahsan told reporters on Wednesday (01/18).

Gilani's decision to appoint Ahsan as his lawyer had been seen as a gesture of reconciliation to the judiciary. Ahsan is a senior leader of Zardari's Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and a prominent lawyer respected by the judiciary for its role in forcing the government to reinstate the independent judges in March 2009.

Ahsan said he did not believe Gilani would be punished. "I do not think the prime minister has been in contempt of court by not writing a letter. I will try to convince the court that the prime minister is not guilty" he said.

POLAR BEAR

In addition to prey for seals, the polar bears also sometimes preyed their own cubs. The behavior was not much has been found previously. However, based on the latest report from Jenny Ross, a photographer in the journal Arctic in December last year, the behavior was increasingly common.

Ross explained that during the climate at the poles became warmer, some ice in the Svalbard archipelago was melted and broken. For polar bears, at the time was difficult times because it was difficult for them to hunt the seals.


"So, then, the young polar bears are the possible food source for the adult polar bears. As the climate continues to warm in the Arctic and the ice melts earlier in the summer, the frequency of predation in one species is increasing," said Ross as quoted by the Daily Mail, Thursday (December 8, 2011).

Ross added that the polar bear began to look for other food alternatives. "On the land, polar bears find the garbage and human food. They also began to eat the seabirds and their eggs. None of the alternatives could support them," she said.

One moment of a polar bear mother that took her cub was photographed by Ross while on an expedition to the archipelago of Svalbard. She saw how the polar bear mother was biting her cub with her teeth and her jaw strength, threw it to the ice surface and finally it was eaten.

While there are many conditions that accelerate the melting of ice at the poles, such as climate change, polar bears are become seriously threatened. Now it's not just about their adaptability at higher temperatures, but about the food crisis which can spur the cannibalism and can lead to extinction. There must be an action to address this.

Steve McQueen: Sex addiction destroys lives


video

Some of the celebrity world was rumored to have an addiction to sex. Sex addiction is described as a progressive disorder characterized by the compulsive sexual thoughts and actions. Some experts call this disorder is a type of mental disorder, while others dub it as an aberration of personality. Those who are classifies as the sex addicts are very prone to have sex with dangerous sexual dating, despite knowing its bad effect.

Here are some signs of sex addiction, as quoted by the Times of India.

1. Double standards: Most of the times without realizing, the person starts living a secret sex life. You become a compulsive cheater, go to strip clubs and watch loads of pornography.

2. Personal relations getting strained: The person just cannot manage his major relationships with ease. There are loads of lies and another side to the person.

3. Risks are fun: Taking risks like trying to be overtly intimate at public places or in fact trying to have sex where you could end up in legal issues. It gives you a high.

4. Feeling guilty: Even though living their double life is fun for them, but when guilt sets in they go in a complete reclusive mode and blame themselves often bordering depression.

5. Constant look-out for sex toys: So kinky is the way they always think like. Something new, something weird gets them going. But hold on, your partner might not approve with a lot of sex toys you want to use during your act. Your mind might always be preoccupied with these thoughts.

6. Keep law at bay: You can get into serious trouble with the law because of your risky behavior. Getting caught in compromising positions at the wrong places is not only embarrassing but will also tarnish your reputation.

7. Intrusive sex: This is one of the most visible signs of a sex addict. Intrusive sex is touching people here and there in a sexual manner where there is no physical intercourse and the other person is completely unwilling or at times not even aware.

8. Fantasizing someone: While fantasizing someone is common, obsessing about someone is not. This will surely affect your daily functioning and other activities putting you in a tight spot.

9. Irresponsible sex: When involved with multiple partners, there should be some responsibility with respect to the protection that is used. With STDs spreading at an alarming rate, the least you can do is be truthful to the person.


Expert talk

Sexologist, Dr Dhananjay Gambhire feels that it is acceptance by the person which is the first step to the get out of this situation, "A person will keep indulging in these pleasurable activities till the time they are caught. They will just not change their behaviour till the time they come under the scanner. His/her partner's support and motivation are definitely required in such a situation. More than often experts are required in such situations. There are medicines that are given to control your sexual behaviour and they do help a lot."

Founder and organizer of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Klaus Schwab said, capitalism now requires a complete overhaul.

According to Schwabm, the annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, which will be held on 25 January next should result in the development of a new model of capitalism to revive the style of social responsibility. "Right now the capitalism has no place in the world around us," he said as reported by AFP (Jan 18, 2012)



He admitted, WEF has failed to learn from past financial crises in 2008-2009, so a global transformation was needed to be done as soon as possible and had to begin by restoring the form of social responsibility. WEF annual meeting of the 42 next week would be opened by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Schwab said the WEF would discuss about the German which has lowered the projected growth in Europe in the middle of the eurozone debt crisis. He also mentioned that the problem of capital was not a determining factor in driving the economy forward. He also believed in the existence of free trade. "Currently we are in danger and actually lost the trust of future generations," he explained.

The leaders who will attend the WEF meeting are the British Prime Minister David Cameron, the President of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan, the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde, European Central Bank Governor Mario Draghi, and Director-General of the World Trade Organization Pascal Lamy.

WEF committee has also invited some of the latest world leader, the PM Tunisia Hamadi Jebali and Thai PM Yingluck Shinawatra who have tried to bridge the gap between generations. Meanwhile, representatives from the Myanmar government will also attend the meeting for the first time.

However, the committee doesn't invite the representatives from groups such as the anti-capitalist activists Cccupy Wall Street even though the group never said willing to get involved with pro capitalist.

Listening Post - A Russian winter




The story of British secret service agent James Bond is only one in the film that inspires the novel by Ian Fleming. However, the advanced tooling of this flamboyant man is not a figment.

In 2006, a program that aired on Russian television showed the footage of a man who attempted to take the stone from snowy street in Moscow. A moment later he went to bring the stones. The man,  according to Russian intelligence agency FSB was a British spy. Similar objects such as rocks was saving the high-tech communication devices.

Russian Intelligence Agency said the equipment maker were four spies posing as diplomats at the British Embassy in Moscow. When the report was aired six years ago, the UK government was denying it. But, the adage of "time will tell" applied in this case.

Jonathan Powell, the first Downing Street Chief of Staff under British Prime Minister Tony Blair provided the confirmation of the truth of this Bond-style action in Russia on Thursday (January 19, 2012).

"They (Russia) really cornered us at that time. Obviously, they already knew about it for some time and has kept it for political purposes," Powell told the BBC on Thursday (1/19). Tony Brenton, British ambassador to Moscow in 2006, agreed with Powell. "Russians choose the time carefully and politically it is very damaging."

On the other hand, Blair declined to comment on the scandal, while he quoted the old policy of the state which was reluctant to comment on intelligence issues. Blair confirmed the British government never confirmed the Russian allegations. Similarly, the British Foreign Office which is responsible for the existence of the MI6 spy agency in another country, declined to comment on Powell's statement.

Espionage scandal was the subject of the conflict Britain and Russia during the Cold War. Espionage scandal is the subject of the conflict Britain and Russia during the Cold War. Although the intensity is now reduced, but the relationship between the two countries remain strained in recent years due to allegations of covert operations.

Even Russia was furious because Britain refused to extradite the former KGB intelligence agency that became the main suspect of Alexander Litvinenko's murder in 2006. Litvinenko was the Kremlin's opposition who was poisoned in London.

In addition to exposing the fake stone tactics, Russia also revealed that Britain secretly fundes the state's opposition groups. The British government also recognized that they were openly in support of the Russian's NGO which active in fighting for human rights and civil society issues.

Sanctions against Iran was a response to a nuclear program, including measures to embargo oil products from Iran. The sanction is following the financial measures issued by U.S. President Barack Obama in recent years. Sanctions will be about 90 percent of Iran's oil exports to Europe.

Western countries believe the Iran's nuclear program is to create a nuclear bomb, whereas Iran insists it is only for electricity generation. In addition to plans for an embargo on Iranian oil, the European Union is also preparing measures to impose sanctions against the Central Bank of Iran, also prohibits the trade in gold with the Iranian government.

However, it seems imposing sanctions by the EU is difficult to apply quickly. In the meeting of 27 EU member states, Greece and the countries in southern Europe want the extra time. Greece for example is very dependent on Iranian oil, with about 25 percent of oil needs from Iran. So Greeks needs time to find the new oil sources. However, EU diplomats said the extra time wouldn't exceed the July 1, 2012.

If the Iranian oil's out of the Western countries, then there's an opportunity for the rising in world oil prices.

ISRAEL - IRAN

Paul Craig Roberts warned if the Iran war occured then the life of mankind on earth could end. Craig Roberts said the U.S. would blame Israel if Iran War occurred. According to him, warning brought by the U.S. to Israel not to attack Iran was a U.S. attempt to avoid responsibility. "If the war broke out, Russia and China would intervene, and the nuclear began to fly. Washington wanted to blame Israeel and Israel seemed willing to be blamed," said Robert Craig.

Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. has sought to convince the leaders of Israel not to take military action to invade Iran. However, the request was responded to by the Isarel leaders flatly. "If Washington really does not want war with Iran, it will not provide the necessary weapons required by Israel and it will not be deployed thousands of its troops to Israel," said Craig Roberts. According to him, if Washington does not want war with Iran, it will not build a missile defense system for Israel and will not conduct military exercises with Israel, but recently the U.S. plans for the war exercises with Israel.

What is behind religious tensions in Nigeria



A spokesman for Nigeria's Islamic group, Boko Haram, issued an ultimatum to the Christian in the north of the country and threatened to fight the army after the President of Nigeria announced a state of emergency in areas affected by the Boko Haram attacks.

Abul Qaqa, a Boko Haram figures who had been blamed for attacks in Africa that killed many people in the past, stating that he have given an ultimatum to residents in the northern region. Within three days they were required to go from the territory.

"We think this has something to do with the government, that the soldiers will just kill the innocent Muslims in these areas declared as an emergency," he said on Sunday (January 1, 2012). "We will confront them directly to protect our brothers," he said in Hausa which commonly used in northern Nigeria.

Previously reported, the President of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in areas hit by unrest, and ordered the closure of part of the country's borders.

He announced the actions after the group called Boko Haram as "cancer" that sought to destroy the body's most populous country in Africa, and he vowed to crush the group which was accused of the bloody attacks.

"Though the efforts are being made to find a final solution, it's important to do some bold measures to restore the situation in the country, particularly in communities affected by it," said Jonathan in a national speech on Saturday at December 31, 2011. "Therefore, I declare a state of emergency in several regions of this country," he said, calling the parts of the states of Borno --Boko Haram's base-- Yobe, Niger, and Plateau.

"Thank you for your perception! I like your romantic side, even if I do not always comment and I'm glad that you're in my circle of friends."
(Courtesies by: Wolfgang A. Gerhardt)

Wolfgang A.Gerhardt : May be you like this Sunday collage

Cisca Zarmansyah : Before today, there never was a person doing this to me. You create a simple matter to look special. This is a special thing for me.

Cisca Zarmansyah : Thank you. I love it. I love you, my friend.

CieL- FreYa Ceastle : Hmm, he's so nice...















"I am me.
In all the world,
there is no one else exactly like me.
Everything that comes out of me
is authentically mine,
because I alone chose it --
I own everything about me:
my body,
my feelings,
my mouth,
my voice,
all my actions,
whether they be to others or myself.
I own my fantasies,
my dreams,
my hopes,
my fears.
I own my triumphs and successes,
all my failures and mistakes.
Because I own all of me,
I can become intimately acquainted with me.
By so doing,
I can love me
and be friendly with all my parts.
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other aspects that I do not know
-- but as long as I am friendly
and loving to myself,
I can courageously and hopefully
look for solutions
to the puzzles and ways
to find out more about me.
However I look and sound,
whatever I say and do,
and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time
is authentically me.
If later some parts of how I looked,
sounded,
thought,
and felt
turn out to be unfitting,
I can discard that which is unfitting,
keep the rest,
and invent something new
for that which I discarded.
I can see,
hear,
feel,
think,
say, and do.
I have the tools to survive,
to be close to others,
to be productive,
and to make sense
and order out of the world of people
and things outside of me.
I own me,
and therefore,
I can engineer me.
I am me,
and I am okay."

VIRGINIA SATIR
(American Phychologist and Educator, 1916-1988)
