Binocular Snapshot for 5/26/2011

LastDayWatchers the May 15th Prophecy told you "And there shall be no Iraqis agreement and I the Lord Of Host shall cause you to have great and complete failure" And "wouldn't you know, the hand of God set the people to be the determiner of the Iraqi Agreement not the Government" with 100% accuracy!

In a defiant warning to U.S. and Iraqi officials, thousands of young men marched through Baghdad’s Sadr City on Thursday to prove they could restart the insurgency if American troops do not leave the country by the end of the year.

"The parade by Muqtada al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army lasted for hours as seemingly endless clusters of men marched past tens of thousands of well-wishers.


The parade included an overwhelming tenor of anti-American hostility, squad leaders for each cluster carried signs stating “No, No for America” and “No, No for Israel.”


In another show of hostility toward U.S. forces serving in the country, young boys trained in martial arts


The Associated Press estimated at least 70,000 marchers and well-wishers crammed Sadr City.


The biggest cheers from the crowd were reserved for participants from towns with majority Sunni or Kurdish populations in northern Iraq.


Sadr advisers said their participation was a sign the militia’s appeal has expanded beyond predominately Shiite southern Iraq.


Under a cloak of heavy security leading into Sadr City’s main commercial area, there did not appear to be any violence or major incidents."

"They have a message aimed at Americans: if you stay beyond the deadline set by the SOFA agreement, the security agreement signed between the US and Iraq - if they stay beyond that date which is 31 of December, the end of this year, the Mahdi army will resume its military activities and they wiill battle US forces,"

Al Saleh said some protesters who spoke off camera said they have their weapons at home and that they were ready "at any moment that the cleric Muqtada al-Sadr gives his orders", to pick up arms and "fight the Americans".

"Al-Sadr threatened last month to end a 2007 cease-fire and "escalate armed resistance" of his militia, if U.S. troops remained beyond the deadline."

"Yes, it is a message to end to occupation," said Hazem al-Araji, a senior al-Sadr aide. "And there will be more parades to put more pressure on the occupiers and the Iraqi government to end the occupation in Iraq."

"We will not accept even one American soldier staying,"

said Adnan al-Mussawi, one of the demonstrators, "Occupation has not benefited us at all, it is our religious duty to kick out every American soldier."

"I came here on the orders of Moqtada al-Sadr to help kick out the occupiers from our country," said Alaa Hussein, 21, a student taking part. "If the government keeps American troops here we will consider them an illegitimate government."

The Successful Failure Of U.S. Money Printing

"But the main difference is probably that the Europeans don’t cheat as much as we do. For example, unemployment in Spain is terrible, at 17% according to the figures we saw for March.


But wait, Yale economist Robert Shiller says unemployment in the U.S. is miscalculated. It’s really almost 16%. Not much difference with Spain.


The Spaniards also have to own up to their problems. They can’t print money. They’re on the euro, a currency controlled by the European Union…which is to say by France and Germany.


Here’s the latest report from The Wall Street Journal (MarketWatch):


BOSTON (MarketWatch) – It’s cost $600 billion of your money. And it was supposed to rescue the economy. But has Ben Bernanke’s huge financial stimulus package, known as “Quantitative Easing 2,” actually worked as planned? QE2 is being wound down in the next few weeks. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke has said it has left the economy “moving in the right direction.”


The truth? QE2 has created a massive new bubble in dollar-based financial assets, from stocks to gold. Meanwhile, it has had zero visible effect on the real economy.


Take jobs. According to the US Labor Department, since last August the number of full-time workers has gone up by just 700,000, from 111.8 million to 112.5 million.


At a cost of $600 billion, that’s $850,000 a job."
