The Middle East situation can spiral out of control in various ways. Meanwhile, Pakistan is continually compromised. Come to find out that India made agreements with Iran back in January 2003 to use Iranian military bases "in the event of any outbreak of tensions with Pakistan." Just a thought...since Israel has infiltrated India -- made clear by the Mumbai attacks -- does this agreement give Israel a trojan horse opening to infiltrate Iranian military bases via India? Wouldn't it be convenient for Mossad to start something from inside an Iranian military base? What more could one ask for but a totally deniable false flag operation on one's arch enemy? Conclusion: Let us hope the Iranians have the matter well in hand.
Meanwhile, the Madoff scandal continues to percolate. A bankruptcy judge ordered the maximum compensation for "victims" capped at $100,000. This was reported on Christmas eve day. You were probably busy that day and missed it. This is a somewhat hopeful development. Related: Questions have arisen about the credibility of the author of The Madoff Double Bluff, Mohammed Rafiq. His piece first suggested (to my knowledge) the intriguing theory that Madoff admitted to fraud to prevent a process of discovery. It's all here. In addition, another item has been circulating from an alleged Swiss whistleblower which supports the double bluff theory. You can read that here.
Why would somebody want to discredit Mohammed Rafiq? Hmm? Was he too close to the truth? Conclusion: This is far from over.
For the record I have known Rafiq for 15/20 years. Mohammed Rafiq was a banker but is not a Jewish convert to Islam. In fact he was baptised at Winchester Cathedral when he was a kid.
Neither is he from a line of bankers. His father was an army man of the lower ranks.
Final conclusion: It's all connected. The wheels are coming off the bus in this period between the end of bush and the beginning of Obama. Qui bono?
