Binocular Snapshot for 10/17/2010

LastDayWatchers did't the May 15th Prophecy tell you the so-called Iraq "Awakening" the Pawn of Satan George W Bush was peddling would be put permanently to sleep?, and about the LIE of the so-called "success of the surge"?

Pro-US Iraqi fighters 'switching to Al-Qaeda'

"At this point, Awakening members have two options: Stay with the government, which would be a threat to their lives, or help Al Qaeda by being a double agent,” he said. “The Awakening is like a database for Al Qaeda that can be used to target places that had been out of reach before.”

The Awakening members’ switch in loyalties poses a new threat to Iraq’s tenuous social and political balance during the country’s ongoing political crisis and as the United States military prepares to withdraw next year



The Awakening began in 2006, when Sunni insurgents and tribal leaders began turning against Al Qaeda and other extremists — a change that played a major role in pulling Iraq back from deadly sectarian warfare. The former insurgents were initially paid by the American military


they are not surprised about the defections given what they call the group’s marginalization by the government and its abandonment by the American military"

United States forces had overseen the Awakening in some areas of the country as recently as last year, including in Diyala Province


The American military declined to comment on the Awakening’s troubles


One Awakening leader in Diyala, Bakr Karkhi, said during an interview that nearly two dozen of his fighters had rejoined Al Qaeda during the past few weeks, a process he said had been occurring throughout Sunni areas of Iraq"

Eight killed in Baghdad jewel heist

"Gunmen shot dead three jewellery shop owners in the Iraqi capital on Sunday, in a heist that also left two robbers and three security personnel killed in a gunbattle, the interior ministry said.
Several of the gunmen managed to escape after the daylight robbery in the capital's upmarket Mansur district but without all of the loot, the ministry said in a statement.


It said police who rushed to the scene were waiting outside the stores as the gunmen tried to make a get-away, resulting in the gunbattle in which five people were killed, two of them policemen and a soldier.


In separate attacks in the capital on Sunday, a policeman and a civilian were killed and eight other people wounded by magnetic "sticky" bombs attached to vehicles.


And a homemade bomb targeting a military convoy killed a soldier in the town of Baaj, 420 kilometres (260 miles) northwest of Baghdad, a police official said."

World powers have no option but talk with Iran: Ahmadinejad

"World powers have no option but to talk with Iran over its nuclear programme, hardline Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday in defiant comments ahead of next month's negotiations.


"We said from the start that the best way is to talk to Iran. You don't have any other option. All other ways are blocked," said Ahmadinejad, commenting for the first time since the dates for the negotiations between the six world powers and Iran were fixed


Ahmadinejad, under whose presidency Iran's nuclear programme has galloped ahead, stressed that the talks must be based on "mutual justice and respect" and that the world powers must respect Tehran's pre-conditions


He also demands that international powers abide by "logic" and express their views on Israel's atomic weapons. The Jewish state is widely recognised as the sole if undeclared nuclear weapons power in the Middle East.


Speaking on Sunday in the northwestern city of Ardebil in an address broadcast live on state television, Ahmadinejad indicated that the response of world powers to these conditions could influence the direction of the November talks.


"We would like to know your logical and lawful opinion" on these conditions, said Ahmadinejad to a cheering and whistling crowd.


"You may keep silent, but silence to us means that you are... backing the Zionist regime's atom bombs and that you are not seeking friendship through talks.


"Feel free to make a choice. But talks on this second path (keeping silent on Iran's conditions) will not yield anything, but what you have gained so far. You won't get anything more," a defiant Ahmadinejad added.


Iran has repeatedly argued that arch-foe Israel must join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to which Tehran is a signatory."

Chinese Warplanes Make Mid East Debut in Turkey, Iran

"The arrival of a new Middle East player startled Washington and Jerusalem Military sources disclose that when Turkish Prime Minister Tayyep Erdogan met Syrian president Bashar Assad in Damascus Monday, Oct. 11, they talked less about the Kurdish question and more about the role China is willing to play in the military-intelligence alliance binding Syria, Iran and Turkey.


Erdogan took the credit for China's unfolding involvement in the alliance in the role of big-power backer. Two recent events illustrate Beijing's intent.


From Sept. 20 to Oct. 6, the Turkish Air Force conducted its regular annual Anatolian Eagle exercise, this time without US and Israeli participation. Israel was not invited and America opted out. However, their place was taken by Chinese Sukhoi Su-27 and Mig-29 warplanes making their first appearance in Turkish skies.


Military sources report that the Chinese warplanes began touching down at the big Konya air base in central Turkey in mid-September for their debut performance in the Middle East and Europe. Konya has served NATO and the United States for decades as one of their most important air bases.


Sources add that the Chinese planes refueled only once on their journey to Turkey in Iran. When they touched down at the Gayem al-Mohammad air base in central Iran, their crews were made welcome by the Iranian air force commander Gen. Ahmad Migani. It was the first time Chinese fighter-bombers are known to have visited the Islamic Republic...


The Turkish prime minister painted the military alliance binding Tehran, Ankara and Damascus in rosy colors for Assad's benefit as more central to the region and more powerful than Israel's armed forces after overcoming the IDF's military edge"

Abbas: Netanyahu fears for his government

"Abbas further stated that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told him he could not comply with the demand to extend the moratorium. "Netanyahu told me: 'I cannot under any circumstance. I fear for my government.' Government is not more precious than peace. Government is not more precious that the future of both peoples," Abbas said.


Recognition of Israel
On Friday, Abbas reiterated his statement that he will not recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Addressing the issue in the interview he said, "Obviously we recognize the State of Israel. It's obviously a Jewish state. If you want it recognized as the Jews' state you are free to do so. But you did not ask recognition from Egypt, Jordan or any other country in the world. You can do whatever you want, but it's not my business."
