The Mediterranean Union: NATO’s Role in Conquering the Middle East and North Africa
In the first portion of this text, the longstanding plans for creating a Mediterranean Union, which predate Nicolas Sarkozy by many years, were revealed as were U.S. and E.U. efforts to turn the Middle East and North Africa into free trade zones and economic territories. The implementation of this project was planned through the 1995 Barcelona Process and the U.S. Middle East Free Trade Area (MEFTA).
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has signed an executive order that carries out new sanctions against Iran that Congress approved and that he signed this summer.
At least four major regional struggles may be determined within the year: the Iranian nuclear crisis, the civil war in Syria, the struggle for the character of the new regime in Egypt, and the broader struggle for the character of the Arab world.
Patrick Clawson, deputy director of research for the Washington Institute for Near East Policy(WINEP) was caught on film last week suggesting that crisis initiation (i.e. a false flag) is needed to “get America into war with Iran.” Clawson has very little confidence that Obama “can get us into war.”

Earlier this year former Mayor of New York City Rudolph Giuliani openly promoted using terrorism as a way to stop the non-existent Iranian nuclear weapons program (for more confirmation of this fact see statements from U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and the U.S.intelligence community).

Still shaken and scared, as it continues to rise the number of victims of the earthquake that hit Iran yesterday: the dead are now 300. Hospitals are overflowing, there are at least 5,000 injured, the Red Crescent Society reports that “more than a thousand villages affected” and “16 000 people are receiving aid.” The situation is dramatic, while fighting against the clock to help survivors of the earthquake.

Iran is in an “open war” with Israel, President Shimon Peres said Monday, as he pointed the finger at Iran and Hezbollah for last week’s bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israelis.
AIPAC Declares War
The American people don’t particularly want a new war in the Middle East, but apparently Congress and Washington’s most powerful lobby do. Thirty-two senators have co-sponsored a resolution that will constrain the White House from adopting any policy vis-à-vis Iran’s “nuclear weapons capability” that amounts to “containment.” The senators include the familiar figures of Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, both of whom have persistently called for military action. They and the other senators have presented their proposal in a particularly deceptive fashion, asserting that they are actually supporting the White House position, which they are not. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta repeated on Feb. 16 that Iran does not have and is not currently building a nuclear device. Before Christmas, he stated clearly that the “red line” for the United States is actual Iranian possession of a nuclear weapon. Even Israel’s intelligence services agree that Iran is not building a bomb. What we are seeing play out in Congress is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) position, which is that Iran has already crossed a “red line.” The AIPAC argument will no doubt be spelled out in more detail next month at the group’s annual convention in the nation’s capital, a meeting that will be addressed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and will attract nearly all of Washington’s power brokers.
