From G.A. “Stu” Stewart:
I suspect that the attack on Iran and Syria will happen simultaneously on November 9th, 2012. For starters, this day provides symmetry to the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony.
There are symbolic and arcane associations with the lighting of the Olympic Torch on July 28th, 2012.
According to the Jewish calendar that was the 9th of Av. The ninth day of the eleventh month in the Jewish calendar has [...]

Power is simply the wonderful ability to tell other people what to do. It is extraordinarily addictive to most human beings, and should be seen as the root cause of humanity’s problems.

The whole “Left” versus “Right” precis has been totally corrupted. [...]
