Eight Strategic Factors to Consider in 2012

Posted on Jan 04, 2012 in Economic News, Global & National News, Police, Military, & War, Political Issues

Kevin Hayden –


Rarely in the past six decades has global context counted for as much in strategic forecasting — trend analysis — as it does at the dawn of 2012. A study of broad contextual factors, including an expanded view of history, will show how cycles and confluences of trends potentially play a greater disruptive role than at any time since the end of World War II.  We have, in recent writings, stressed the longer-term trends and outlook, but it is important to see how the strategic environment is likely to play out during 2012. Equally, it is important that these trends (and others) are seen collectively, and not separately.

These are not wild predictions and guesses but careful analysis put together by the heads of the International Strategic Studies Association who have a global field collection team of some 200 assets in many countries.

Some of the topics covered in the short report are:

    1. Global Economic and Financial Trends:
    2. Global Energy Supply and Demand:
    3. Strategic Recovery by the US
    4. EU/Eurozone Prospects

Hayden’s Headlines – Iran, Gingrich, Blackwater, and Marijuana

Posted on Dec 13, 2011 in Global & National News

Kevin Hayden –

I know I usually post Friday Headlines, but I decided to change it up a bit since so many of you enjoy my ‘Hayden’s Notes’ –

Without further ado, and because I’ve been slacking a bit on updates, here are a few headlines:

‘The Americans have perhaps decided to give us this spy plane’…

OBAMA: Can we have it back, please?

CHENEY: President should have gone in and destroyed drone…

Lieberman agrees…

Wha?  We invaded their sovereign airspace, and for whatever reason, the drone went down… and Cheney thinks we have legal authority to invade in order to reclaim it? Wow.


40% of the world’s oil runs through this canal. Expect gas prices to rise.

Canada withdrawing from Kyoto

Libyan activists demand transparency from National Transitional Council

Okay – how’s this for transparency? Your government was created by Western-backed rogue elements of al-Qaeda and resource-hungry banksters. What else do you expect?

Gingrich ‘proposed the death penalty for marijuana’

US-Funded “Activist” Becomes President of Tunisia

Iran Threatens ‘Frightful Response’ to Future Violations of Airspace by Drones

Deputy Chairman of the Majlis (Parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Esmail Kowsari warned that the next time the US ventures to violate Iran’s air sovereignty, it would receive a “frightful” response.

Kowsari warned that if US surveillance drones attempt to violate Iran’s sovereignty once again, Iran “will target every US military base anywhere in the world.”  The senior Iranian lawmaker further questioned the silence of the international community on the blatant US violation of Iran’s territorial integrity and highlighted the double standard behavior toward Iran.

“Our question is, that if this aircraft belonged to Iran and it had violated US territory, how many sessions would the international community and the UN Security Council have held and how many resolutions would they have issued against Iran?”

Hayden’s Note:

Exactly.  Imagine Iran, or even Russia, launching a surveillance drone and flying over Washington, DC, or Florida, or even Kansas…?  What would the response have been?  We would have likely countered with not only sanctions, and various resolutions, but more than likely a number of clandestine operations targeting their infrastructure and military in retaliation.  ...

Airstrike Against Iran Would Kill 100’s of North Koreans and Russians

By John C. K. DalyTruth Contributor 

As the drums for direct military intervention to derail Iran’s purported covert military nuclear weapons program beat louder in both Jerusalem and Washington, an overlooked issue is the possibility of international “collateral damage,” to use the Pentagon’s favorite euphemism for civilian casualties.

On 14 November, South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo stated, “Hundreds of North Korean scientists and engineers are working at about 10 nuclear and missile facilities in Iran, including Natanz. The North Koreans are apparently rotated every six months.”  Russian technicians also remain at Iran’s first nuclear electrical energy facility, Bushehr. So, any aerial strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities could result in significant numbers of dead Russian and North Korean specialists as “collateral damage,” with all the diplomatic uncertainties that might ensue from Moscow and Pyongyang as the body bags start arriving home.

Hayden’s Note:

Let’s see here… Israel and the United States conduct a joint-strike on Iran, to which Russia has already made it very clear that there will be grave consequences for, along with Iran echoing these sentiments…  Add to that, the death of hundreds of their top scientists and you have a cocktail for World War 3.  ...

It’s that time again, our government is ready to add yet another country to their growing list of “enemies.” Anyone who remembers the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq must get deja vu when hearing some of the most recent threats to come out of Washington, concerning Iran.

Many activists and researchers have seen this coming for a very long time as conquering Iran is an essential task for the West in the creation of their Middle Eastern empire. We have also been tipped off by the numerous times that our government has attempted to instigate conflict with Iran, only to have the whole concept rejected by the world community as well as Americans back home. This rejection has delayed the drive to war, but it certainly hasn’t changed the plan.

Iran is a much more complicated situation than the half dozen other countries that have already been invaded in this conquest, it’s far more delicate. Iran’s population and military capabilities far surpass that of Iraq and Afghanistan, it is one of the most powerful countries in the Middle East and has been for a very long time....

The Provocation and False Flags Surrounding Iran & Israel

For ten months the Obama administration has presided over the “Arab Spring,” a geopolitical gambit years in the making, and executed simultaneously in multiple nations throughout the Middle East and North Africa in the beginning of 2011. The regional conflagration was stoked by a steady stream of first, denial, even feigned surprise, with covert support for US-backed opposition groups, then more overt support, and finally NATO airstrikes, weapons, training, and special operations forces lent to the rebellion in Libya and weapons and support sent to Syria’s militants. These collective efforts stretching from Tunisia and leading up to Iran’s doorstep serve a singular agenda -that is, to contain and ultimately overturn the reemergence of Russia as well as containing the rise of China.

Toppling Iran

Integral to this stated agenda, is the toppling of Iran’s government and its integration into the Wall Street-London “international order.” Efforts to topple Syria’s government by US-backed and now apparently armed opposition groups aim to isolate and even provoke the Islamic Republic into a suitable justification for US or Israeli (or both) retaliation....

CIA-Backed al-Qaeda Cries Foul Over Iran’s Public Suspicions of 9/11, Demands Blame

Posted on Sep 28, 2011 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts

Al-Qaeda has sent a message to the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, asking him to stop spreading conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks.  Iranian media on Wednesday reported quotes from what appears to be an article published in the latest issue of the al-Qaida English language magazine, Inspire, which described Ahmadinejad’s remarks over the 11 September attacks as “ridiculous”.

Hayden’s Note:

Recently, I read an article about a Norway scientist claiming that the melted aluminum from the planes, mixed with fire sprinkler water, caused explosions and brought the towers down.  He had no theory as to why Building 7, which was not struck by a plane, came down in near free-fall time, though.

This is such a stretch that I laughed out loud.  And this is being circulated in the mainstream media.  What isn’t being reported is that 1,560 professional and highly reputable architects and engineers from around the world claim that the towers were brought down under a controlled demolition, including the 3rd tower – Building 7.  And they have reasonable, logical science to back it up....

BBC Finally Admits Role in 1953 Iranian Coup

Posted on Aug 21, 2011 in Global & National News

Kevin Hayden –

Source: Press TV
The BBC Persian TV channel has at last acknowledged the role of the BBC Persian radio in the toppling of the democratically elected government of Iran in the 1953 coup.

The coup overthrew the government of the then Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh leading to the restoration of absolute monarchy under puppet-dictator Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi who was later toppled in the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

In a documentary aired on August 18 on the anniversary of the coup, BBC Persian channel admitted for the first time to the role of the BBC Persian radio as the propaganda arm of the British government in Iran.

After repeated denials of the BBC Persian radio’s role in helping London oust Mosaddegh, the program entitled Cinematograph detailed how the radio network broadcast anti- Mosaddegh programs to undermine his government.

“The British government used the BBC Persian radio for advancing its propaganda against Mosaddegh and anti-Mosaddegh material were repeatedly aired on the radio channel to the extent that Iranian staff at the BBC Persian radio went on strike to protest the move,” the Cinematograph narrator said....

Iran Opens Oil Bourse – Harbinger of Trouble for New York and London?

Posted on Jul 27, 2011 in Economic News – Kevin Hayden

Source: Oil Price by John Daly – Truth Contributor

The last three years of global recession have dealt a major blow to American capitalist ideas trumpeted throughout the world on the value of “free markets.” Wall St has been revealed as a form of casino economy, with the bankster insiders gambling with other people’s, and eventually, the government’s money in the form of bailouts. As the Republicans in Congress, scenting victory in the 2012 presidential elections, hold a gun to the Obama administration’s head and rating agencies consider downgrading U.S. government bonds in light of Washington’s possible defaulting, many ideas around the world that previously seemed implausible because of the dominance of the U.S. economy are garnering renewed interest.
Not surprisingly, many of these concepts originate in countries not enamored with Washington’s influence, perhaps none so more than “Axis of Evil” charter member Iran, which has seen its economy hammered by more than three decades of U.S.-led sanctions. Now Iran is working a program, that, if it succeeds, could help undermine the dollar’s preeminence as the world’s reserve currency more effectively than a Republican filibuster....

5 Important Russian Nuclear Scientists Die in Plane Crash, Working on Iran’s Nuclear Facility

Posted on Jun 24, 2011 in Police, Military, & War – Kevin Hayden

Source: Haaretz

The five nuclear experts killed in a plane crash in northern Russia earlier this week had assisted in the design of an Iranian atomic facility, security sources in Russia said on Thursday.

The five Russian experts were among the 44 passengers killed when the Tupolev-134 plane broke up and caught fire on landing outside the northern city of Petrozavodsk on Monday.

The experts – who included lead designers Sergei Rizhov, Gennadi Benyok, Nicolai Tronov and Russia’s top nuclear technological experts, Andrei Tropinov – worked at Bushehr after the contract for the plant’s construction passed from the German Siemens company to Russian hands.

The sources said that the death of the scientists is a great blow to the Russian nuclear industry.

The experts were tasked with completing construction of the plant and ensuring that it would be able to survive an earthquake.

Undeclared Israeli Nuclear Weapons: CIA Knew In 1974 That Israel Had Nuclear Weapons

Commentary and Title change by Kevin Hayden

Much attention has been placed on Iran and their supposed nuclear weapons program by the United States and Israel.

What isn’t talked about on a regular basis in the corporate controlled media is the fact that Israel has an illegal, undeclared nuclear arsenal.  While many are already aware of the facts regarding the Israeli Nuclear Program, there is an absurd amount of people who still pretend Israel is a sitting duck surrounded by powerful enemies.

Hayden’s Note:

This is a topic that I have brought up time and time again.  Israel is not a helpless victim.  They are a nuclear-armed country with financial backing from the United States.  In fact, they receive more financial and military aid from the United States than any other country in the world.  And they have nukes.  And Israel is not a signatory on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. 

So, when Israel whines and cries about Iran gaining nuclear capability, I have ZERO sympathy for them. ...
