Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov welcomes U.S. signals on missile shield

http://in.reuters.com/article/worldNews/idINIndia-38017820090214

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov welcomed U.S. signals to review a missile defence shield in eastern Europe, in an interview with German news magazine Der Spiegel.

Lavrov said Russia wanted to work more closely with the West due to the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and he expressly welcomed signals from President Barack Obama’s administration on Iran.

He also renewed an offer to work together with the United States on the missile defence shield.

“It’s not too late. We could sit down at the negotiating table and evaluate the situation,” Lavrov is quoted as saying in the interview to be published on Monday, excerpts of which were released on Saturday.

The United States on Friday signalled a willingness to slow plans for the missile defence shield in eastern Europe if Russia agreed to help stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Plans for the shield have contributed to a deterioration in U.S.-Russian ties, but the Obama administration has said it wants to press the ‘reset button’ and build good relations with Moscow.

Undersecretary of State William Burns has held talks in Moscow in which he signalled the United States was ready to look at remodelling its missile defence plans to include Moscow.

Hillary Clinton says ABM system hinges on Iran’s actions

http://www.russiatoday.com/news/news/37261

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday the Obama administration might reconsider its plans to deploy an ABM system in Eastern Europeif Iran agrees to compromise on its nuclear program.

This thorny issue places yet another big challenge on the plate of the American president, who is being critically watched in these early days of his presidency. Without a clear position on this controversial issue there cannot be much progress in U.S. relations with Russia, Iran, and America’s allies in Europe.

Tehran has already said it is prepared to work with the new U.S. administration.

“The new U.S. administration has announced that it wants to make a change and start a dialogue. It is quite clear that a real change should be fundamental and not tactical,” says Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

It appears that Obama’s policy makers have found a way to kill two birds with one stone.

The reaction in the two Eastern European countries (the radar in the Czech Republic and ABM interceptor missiles in Poland) is expected to be mixed.

The politicians there have fought a hard battle to persuade its population that the system was necessary.

The U.S. offered significant military and financial incentives in exchange for hosting the controversial project that could now be suspended.

The North Atlantic Alliance may have been excited over the prospect, but its own ties with Russia cooled considerably as the plan unfolded.

    Sorry Tenacity, that was unintentional..just kinda drifted that way.
    my point was, we need an “uprising” In its truest form.

    Throughout the years of the “me generation”…the hippies, yuppies, the DREADED BABY BOOMERS! all the same fools who rename themselves every decade. this particular generation has used many different means to gain recognition by “the man”, starting with protests, sit ins, rallies, marches and now mostly fund raisers.
    so here they are, mostly liberals, running our country…even though Obama is a decade shy of this party agewise, he none the less belongs. as his mentor, and fellow flag stomper ayers will attest to, albiet in secret.

    my dark suspicion of this group eventually running our country has been realized. this group of self serving, zero character, tyrants used tactics of an organized unit working on behalf of the less fortunate.

    this won them their power, all of which was a lie to gain their power.
    in all actuality we now have a party of totalitarianism running our country…..and to think it all started with their very first protest based on peace, love and happiness……hypocrites in their truest from…lol

    Tenacity, can we, as conservatives, or whatever we chose for our titles, Id say anti-liberals should describe a party of individuals seeking new leadership that subscribes to the Constitution of the united States of America. Thats how simple our party description should be.
    “The Constitutions “EVERYBODY HAS TO HAVE A NAME.

    THE Constitutions are forming to rush capitol hill in efforts to gain new leadership under a party that is of the people for the people and by the people…..Change is in numbers. band together and take back our country.

    It will be very difficult to convince republicans to join together in a protesting form….we just are not civilly disobediant, although we may need to reconsider.
    I just want to somehow have our voice be heard…. if more Americans knew what Obama was really doing then maybe that would be our numbers…
    I dont know….I just feel the only way obama should leave this office is in HANDCUFFS!!!!!

    I watched something interesting tonight. I was at my local Borders bookstore, and there was a large display of Obama books in the front of the store. When I sat down to have my coffee, I was starring toward the display and was watching to see what kind of person would stop to pick up, or browse through any of the Obama books.

    I sat for about a half an hour and during that time, not one person stopped to check out the books, BUT two different individuals walked by and turned a book with his face around. I couldn’t believe that it happened twice!

    I have heard that this is a new thing that people are doing as a sign to others that they are not alone, and that another (non-brainwashed) person has been there. It was amazing to see it happen before my eyes.

    When I finished my coffee, I went and finished the job. It was such a sense of empowerment!

    Michael Ledeen’s latest at Pajamas Media:

    “We Are All Fascists Now”

    http://pajamasmedia.com/michaelledeen/2009/02/12/we-are-all-illiterates-now/

    It’s fascism. Nobody calls it by its proper name, for two basic reasons:

    first, because “fascism” has long since lost its actual, historical, content; it’s been a pure epithet for many decades.

    Lots of the people writing about current events like what Obama et. al. are doing, and wouldn’t want to stigmatize it with that “f” epithet.

    Second, not one person in a thousand knows what fascist political economy was.

    Yet during the great economic crisis of the 1930s, fascism was widely regarded as a possible solution, indeed as the only acceptable solution to a spasm that had shaken the entire First World, and beyond.

    It was hailed as a “third way” between two failed systems (communism and capitalism), retaining the best of each.

    Private property was preserved, as the role of the state was expanded.

    This was necessary because the Great Depression was defined as a crisis “of the system,” not just a glitch “in the system.”

    And so Mussolini created the “Corporate State,” in which, in theory at least, the big national enterprises were entrusted to state ownership (or substantial state ownership) and of course state management.

    Some of the big “Corporations” lasted a very long time; indeed some have only very recently been privatized, and the state still holds important chunks–so-called “golden shares”–in some of them.

    Commerce Department Waives Syria Sanctions
    Claudia Rosett, 02.12.09

    http://www.forbes.com/2009/02/11/syria-assad-sanctions-opinions-columnists_0212_claudia_rosett.html

    According to the 2004 Iraq Survey Group report of former CIA chief weapons inspector Charles Duelfer, from about 1999 until the 2003 overthrow of Saddam Hussein, Syria served as the chief broker for weapons deals–including missile components and guidance systems–that Saddam was negotiating with North Korea. These deals not only ran through Syria, but through Syrian companies connected to relatives of President Assad.

    We know about this Syrian-North Korean-Iraqi network thanks to documents and interviews procured in Iraq after the fall of Saddam. But Iraq’s exposure to daylight was an exception not repeated among rogue states after Bush left the regime-change business in 2004. Are there other places where, in similar pattern, Syria has been peddling its cozy contacts with North Korea?

    And that’s just one set of Syrian tentacles. To list a few more of Syria’s doings during almost nine years under the regime of Bashar Assad, with whom Obama proposes to break bread:

    –Syria’s government is suspected of involvement in the Feb. 14, 2005, assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri with a massive bomb that hit Hariri’s motorcade, leaving a huge crater on a main road in Beirut. That was four years ago this week (A UN investigation has been grinding away for years now, with no justice yet in sight).

    –Syria has remained involved in Lebanon since Assad’s regime was officially forced out in 2005 under international pressure and facing massive street protests in Beirut. Since then, there have been a series of horrific murders of Lebanese who dared to speak out against Damascus, such as the December 2005 car bombing that killed one of Lebanon’s leading democratic politicians, newspaper publisher Gebran Tueni.

    –Syria has a policy, in tandem with Iran, of providing support, haven and training for terrorist groups such as Hezbollah (which in 2006 launched a brief war against Israel out of Lebanon, and is well on the way to taking over Lebanon and turning it into an Islamist state) and Hamas (which in 2007 seized power in the Palestinian enclave of Gaza). This is not some underground activity; Hamas leader Khaled Meshal, for instance, operates out of Damascus, where during the recent conflict in which Israel tried to shut down rocket attacks out of Gaza, Meshal, in Damascus, met with Iranian officials and gave interviews to the media.

    –Syria has served as a prime base and conduit for terrorists who inflicted some of the worst carnage in Iraq.

    –And, just this past week, stories have been flickering through the news of a Russian-owned, Cypriot-flagged cargo ship, the Monchegorsk, most recently reported to be moored in Cyprus. Bound for Syria, according to Thomson Reuters, the ship left Iran late last month. En route, it was boarded by the U.S. Navy, which reportedly found weapons aboard, took photos, but then–lacking authority to do anything more–let the ship sail on.

    “Failure to launch”

    By Oliver North
    Published: Saturday, February 14, 2009

    http://www.paragoulddailypress.com/articles/2009/02/14/opinion/doc49962e0e50c3b156441775.txt

    A former U.S. intelligence official warns: “The Russians never give anything away for nothing. With them, everything is a quid pro quo. Keep an eye on Lourdes.”

    The location referred to was a Soviet signals-intelligence site south of Havana, which was used for “listening” to U.S. defense and NASA communications.

    On Oct. 17, 2001, Putin, then the president of Russia, announced its closure.

    None of this bodes well for the first few weeks of the new administration.

    Let’s hope that none of the “over-promising” domestically or damaging diplomacy overseas is on an irreversible downward trajectory.

    In an increasingly unstable and dangerous world, the much-hyped “new way” of dealing with friends and adversaries has, thus far, failed to launch.

    Petraeus: Iran should stop funding extremists

    http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2009/02/14/news/ML-Mideast-Petraeus-Iran.php

    DOHA, Qatar: Gen. David Petraeus said Saturday that Iran should stop backing extremist groups that contribute to ongoing violence in Iraq, adding that the U.S. is watching Tehran “very, very closely.”

    The commander of the region that includes both countries also told a U.S.-Islamic world forum in the Persian Gulf nation of Qatar that the U.S. is looking for signs that Iran is willing to cooperate, echoing gestures of openness expressed by the Obama administration.

    However, he was firm when asked what concrete steps Iran could take to improve relations. Foremost on his list was that there be an end to the “training, equipping, funding of extremist elements” in the region, particularly in Iraq.

    This is not accurate. Only about 23% of Americans voted for S/Ob. Less than half of the registered voters actually voted. So who’s fault is it really? Those that didn’t vote are mostly to blame for this fiasco. It’s those that think their vote wouldn’t count or they didn’t like anyone or they abstained in protest or they were just too lazy. In essence complacency has put us in this boat. All the American public had to do was show up to avoid this.

    Zen,
    I’ve been talking to a few bright people that have been beating their heads against a wall trying to unify those loyal to the Constitution and the Republic. The problem is the same as why there are so many different denominations of evangelical Christian churches…egos, stubborness, and pride about how to do church. They all believe in Jesus, but they can’t agree about how to do church. The only way to get the majority to agree on what group to join or what name to use is to have someone try to ram something down their throat and then they will unite to fight them. I learn this by dealing with people in the mountains (Rockies). If you watched the early episodes of South Park, it hinted to this mentality. There seems to be some cooperation forming between We The People Foundation/Congress, Resist Net, Restore The Constitution, Grass Fire and Committees of Safety. At least I am hearing that members of each are starting to support the actions/plans of the others. In Colorado at least, we (WTPC) are talking about inviting these other groups to participate in the Continental Congress in June or July. Resist net is talking about supporting RTC’s May 30th march and inviting everyone else to participate in a protest they have planned in September. I’m with Orly Taitz in that September is too far off and they need to do something much sooner.

    The various parties that exist now are apparently not capable of merging: Libertarians, Constitution Party, Independent Party, Conservative Republicans, and the Conservative Party. Too much animosity between the various leaderships. Thus, it seems there are 2 possibilities and the odds are not great for either of them. 1) Kick the stinking Rockefellerites out of the Republican Party. These are the RINOs like Specter, Snowe, Collins, Bush Sr., W, McCain and others that have not held true to fiscally conservative principles. 2) Form a whole new party based upon restoring & preserving the Constitution and our Republic. The first option is an action by conservatives and will be difficult because a lot of the money behind the Rep Party is controlled by so-called moderates that are actually a part of the NWO crowd (named above) that have played and used the Rep Party much like S/Ob (Soros & etc.) has played and used the Dhim Party. In fact, the 2 factions are joined at the hip. Thus, it seems the only real solution is to form a new party (option 2). This move is basic proselytizing the list of parties above plus trying to pull in the Reagan Democrats…PUMAs & etc. In order to successfully do that, we can’t take a partisan approach at all. It requires a different dialogue and philosophy that left v. right or liberal v. conservative. It means talking about preserving the rights of the citizens, state’s rights, liberty, and freedom from tyranny. It means convincing a significant group of people that the federal government is now tyranical and must be reformed or abolished and remade to something like we had before 1907 or perhaps better and more lasting. The Constitution has been elevated to a sacred document in many peoples minds, but the real highest law is the Declaration of Independence. We need to rewrite it to apply to today and give it even stronger teeth to mandate that we never arrive at this place again.

    I welcome everyone feedback and participation in this discussion. It is critically important and worthy of all of our time. This and the methods/plans of how to force it to occur are precisely what necessitates a Continental Congress.
