HSBC Not Closing Gold Vaults – Safety Deposit Boxes of Clients‏ Being Closed
- Incorrect rumors abound around blogosphere that HSBC is rapidly and quietly closing gold vaults
- HSBC are in fact closing down their safety deposit box facilities in vaults in branches
- Banks internationally closing boxes as not profitable and move to “cashless society”
- Incorrect speculation that HSBC move forcing gold clients to sell bullion
- Speculation understandable given poor communications from HSBC and manipulation of precious metal markets
- Salutary lesson to all – media and blogosphere – to be more rigorous
- Underlines vital importance of owning gold in allocated manner outside financial system
An incorrect rumor that HSBC is rapidly and quietly closing gold vaults where clients gold bullion was stored and gold in the GLD ETF is stored has been swirling around the internet.
After conversations with key players in the industry including a bullion dealer who used the safety deposit boxes for storage and delivery to clients, we can now confidently say that the speculation was incorrect.
What HSBC is actually doing is closing its safety deposit box facilities some of which are in vaults and strong rooms in branches. The vaults are not specialist gold vaults rather standard vaults or strong rooms which contain safety deposit boxes. These safety deposit boxes hold all sorts of valuables – from legal documents, to family heirlooms, to art works, to jewellery and of course bullion coins and bars.
Availability of safety deposit boxes is in decline in Britain and much of the world. Costs of security, insurance and opportunity to use such facilities in a more profitable manner are driving the closures. Banks in Ireland including the Bank of Ireland claim that the safety deposit boxes are “causing an unacceptable health, safety and security risk in some branches.”
While the move is understandable from a purely profit motive point of view, it must be remembered that this is a greatly needed service by many people including entrepreneurs and professionals who need to safe keep important legal documents that they are not comfortable keeping in a home or office. It is also a greatly needed service for the elderly and other people who have valuable jewelry and heirlooms that they are uncomfortable keeping in the house.
It is another case of banks blindly pursuing profit ahead of the interests of their own clients.
Banks and insolvent governments desperate for cash likely also dislike safety deposit boxes as they are means for people to protect and grow wealth and protect themselves from inflation and indeed bail-in and deposit confiscation. A percentage of box holders also store cash and bullion.
In our brave new  world of the ‘cashless society’, the financial independence and freedom that a safety deposit box confers upon the citizen is frowned upon.
As a consequence citizens are being deprived of the opportunity of having their savings, valuables and wealth stored outside of the increasingly precarious financial system and digital banking system.
The implications of the rumours were significant. Analysts speculated that a precious metals market disruption might be imminent and with it delivery calls by clients who believe they own physical gold in GLD which HSBC most likely could not meet.
Such an event would likely have a dramatic upward effect on the price of gold not to mention a catastrophic effect on the finances of those who believe they actually own physical gold in ETFs. Irish Finance Minister, Michael Noonan, being one recent buyer of the gold ETF.
The misunderstanding regarding HSBC closing its deposit box facilities had led to speculation by people familiar with the underlying dynamics of precious metals markets. HSBC was implicated in a gold price manipulation scandal last year, and has been fined numerous times in the past decade for an array of corrupt practices.
As “the largest COMEX/NYMEX depository”, according to their website, they are viewed by sceptics as having both a capacity and a track record to manipulate precious metals prices.
This view was compounded back in 2012 when respected analyst, Ned Naylor-Leyland, tracked the serial number of a gold bar that was presented on CNBC as belonging to the GLD ETF, of which HSBC is custodian.
Naylor-Leyland discovered that the bar, in fact belonged to a different ETF – ETF Securities – fuelling speculation that GLD did not have the gold it claimed to be in possession of and that gold is rehypothecated.
The recent misunderstanding regarding HSBC’s gold vaults, when viewed from this perspective, is understandable. Long time observers of the precious metals markets are aware of the price suppression actions that occur.
These include the dumping of contracts for massive volumes of gold onto the market at quiet periods – often after the close of business on the COMEX or after Asian trading and before European markets commence trading. In the absence of demand, the huge supply of paper contracts for gold overwhelms the market forcing the price down and triggering stop losses which then accelerate the sell-offs.
The sellers of these contracts are clearly not looking for the best price for their asset. The aim is to force down the price in illiquid markets. The seller can then buy back contracts for the same volume of gold at a greatly reduced price for a large profit.
However, it is the case that those owning gold in HSBC’s safety deposit boxes do not have to sell their gold and most won’t. They have 60 days to find new secure storage and we are already seeing flows in this regard.
The rapidity with which this information became received wisdom is a salutary lesson for the alternative media and the gold blogosphere. Bloggers need to be rigorous in establishing facts as they will be held to a much higher standard by the mainstream media – higher, even, than the latter sometimes hold for themselves.
It also again underlines the vital importance of owning allocated and segregated gold outside the global banking system, in the safest vaults in the world.

Philip Haslam: When Money Destroys Nations
Zero Hedge
Submitted by Adam Taggart via Peak Prosperity,
The global debt glut, plus the related money printing efforts by the world's central banks to try to stimulate further credit growth at all costs, leads us to conclude that a major currency crisis -- actually, multiple major currency crises -- are practically inevitable at this point.
To understand better the anatomy of a currency collapse, we talk this week with Philip Haslam, author of the book When Money Destroys Nations. Haslam is an authority on monetary history, and more recently, has spent much time in Zimbabwe collecting dozens of accounts of the experiences real people had as the currency there failed.
This week, he and Chris discuss the process by which a hyperinflationary currency collapse occurs:
In South Africa, there's a river called Suicide Gorge where you can jump off from the top of a series of waterfalls. You jump off each waterfall, and you can then go down to the next. But the problem is, once you jump off each waterfall, you can’t get back up again. So we used this analogy to describe the process of hyperinflation.
Typically, as a government prints money, you get levels of inflation. But that’s inflation based on historic money printing. Every year, when you get your salary increase, you base it on historic processes. You take the latest consumer price index and then build it into your wage increases. If you're a business, you'll build it into rent increases and price increases of your products. But it's all based on historic inflation.
But then the time comes when a cultural shift occurs and people begin to say "Hang on a second, my salary increase was based on historic inflation, but I'm beginning to lose purchasing power -- I'm getting poorer and poorer. Stop giving me increases based on last year, and give me increases based on next year." So the inflation becomes based on a future money printing, rather than historic money printing. That's what we call our first 'gorge moment'.
That leads very quickly then into our second gorge moment, which is where the rate of price increases actually outstrips the amount of money in the economy and you get money shortages. In 2003, the economy in Zimbabwe experiences fierce money shortages. You had massive queues at the banks, real shortages, everyone trying to take their money out of the banking system. It became a real problem as people began to distrust the banks more and more. They actually wanted to hold their money directly, concerned that the banks actually did not have it.
Gorge moment three is when that pressure begins to work its way into the real economy and margins begin to decrease to the point where stores begin to close. That is a real cultural shift. Before, stores were open; goods were expensive but you could still get food and you could still get goods and services. But at gorge moment three, the formal supply sector shuts down.
Gorge moment four is when the banking system begin to stop lending. If you are lending money to someone and, a day later, that money you lent has lost value, you no longer want to make loans. You're going to use that money to go speculating and buy things that will hold value. So gorge moment four is very close to gorge moment three. Stores close and credit dries up. People stop lending.
Following this stage is gorge moment five: a curious consumption hysteria develops that we call 'scorched money'. It's when people try to take their money and get rid of it as fast as they can because if you hold it instead, it's going to lose value by the next day and you can buy less and less with it as time goes on. People will do anything to get rid of their money and find anything that will hold some value of some sort. It’s a crazy, consumption hysteria where everyone’s buying everything. There is huge amount of demand, but in reality, production has stopped. So you have this entire consumption of the economy where all goods and services get consumed.
Finally comes the sixth gorge moment which is the death of the currency and the final collapse of the money-based system.

Re: Philip Haslam: When Money Destroys Nations
Time and again these manufactured events keep happening, bank insolvencies, stock market crashes, wars, all things that wouldn't happen without the support of regimes for the global private central banks and their global private currency scam, illegal arming of all sides in wars including terrorists, both the common form and those in charge of national armies. Just look at Iraq where the UK and US have been accused with evidence of supplying the latest manifestation, ISIS, while occasionally bombing them at the same time.
Time to jettison the current political set-up and make local currency arrangements.
The pending crash is part of the road map and it will be used to usher in the bank mafia's much longed for cashless society, another scam to consolidate absolute control of the currency supply in private hands, with the power to disable access for individuals.

Orwell & Kafka Do America: How The Government Steals Your Money - "Legally," Of Course
Zero Hedge
Submitted by Charles Hugh-Smith of OfTwoMinds blog,
Due process and rule of law have been replaced with "legalized" looting by government in America.
Did you know that the government of Iran steals your cash if they find more than loose change in your car? They don't arrest you for any crime, for the simple reason you didn't commit any crime; but it isn't about crime and punishment--it's about"legalizing" theft by the state.
So the government toadies don't charge you with a crime or arrest you--they just steal your money.
Pity the poor Iranian people--clearly, there is no rule of law to protect them from their predatory, rapacious, fake-democracy, quasi-totalitarian government.
Did you also know that if you deposit too much money in modest sums, the government of Iran steals all your deposits? They will claim--oh, the twisted logic of Orwellian, repressive governments--that you are obviously a drug dealer who is avoiding laws that require banks to report large deposits to the government.
Once again, you won't be charged with a crime--in true Orwellian fashion the suspicion that you may have committed a crime is sufficient reason to steal your cash. Pity the poor Iranian people, living in such a banana-republic kleptocracy.
Did you also know that if you are caught with any drug paraphernalia in your vehicle, the government of Iran steals your vehicle? The crime isn't a drug crime--it's a property crime: what are you doing with the government of Iran's vehicle?
Pity the poor Iranian people, living in a Kafkaesque nightmare where suspicion alone justifies the government stealing from its citizens, and an unrelated crime (possessing drug paraphernalia) is used to justify state theft.
As in a Kafkaesque nightmare, the state is above the law when it needs an excuse to steal your car or cash. There is no crime, no arrest, no due process--just the state thugs threatening that you should shut up and be happy they don't take everything you own.
Your car and cash are guilty--and your house, too.
Alas, dear reader, I have misled you.

Intelligence Services Block Activists’ Emails … And Frame Them With Fake Emails
Zero Hedge
03/25/2015 By George Washington
You send an email to a reporter saying that you’ve got proof of criminal wrongdoing by a government official … or a big bank. You never receive a response.
Or you send an email to an expert on monetary policy asking if the Federal Reserve’s policies help the rich at the expense of the little guy … or an expert on radiation asking if the Fukushima accident might endanger public health. You never receive a response.
This might be for any number of perfectly innocent reasons, including:
Your email ended up in their spam folder
They’re busy
They’re not interested enough to write back
They think you’re a bore or a crank
But there could be another explanation …
By way of background, China has blocked gmail for its citizens.
Yahoo blocked emails relating to the Occupy protests.
Bahrain uses British software that allows the government to frame political activists by creating messages from that person that they never typed. 35 other countries use the same software.
Tunisia monitored and blocked the emails of activists, so they were never delivered. For example:
There is also technical surveillance whereby downloading or adding attachment to an email must go through a central server. Under the pretext of protecting public order and national security, a 1998 post and telecommunications law enables the authorities to intercept and check the content of email messages and in fact electronic surveillance such as filtering of email messages of government opponents have been reported. Global Voices Advocacy Director and Tunisia Activist Sami Ben Gharbia conducted a test from the Netherlands with two Tunisia-based activists and confirmed by logging to their email accounts from the Netherland that what he sees is not what they receive when they login from Tunisia, and that they cannot access some of the messages they receive.
The Tunisian government used software from Western companies to block emails of political dissidents.
A prominent American political writer said that – if Tunisia is doing it – you can bet that Western countries are, as well.
Indeed, Snowden revealed that the British spy agency GCHQ has developed numerous offensive digital tools, including:
Ability to deny functionality to send/receive email or view material online.
***
Ability to spoof any email address and send email under that identity.
***
Mass delivery of email messaging to support an Information Operations campaign.
The potential for stifling dissent is staggering.

George Soros Warns Greece "Is Going Down The Drain"
“Right now we are at the cusp," billionaire George Soros tells Bloomberg TV in this brief clip, the chances of Greece leaving the euro area are now 50-50 and the country could go "down the drain." The 84-year-old fears that talks between Greece and 'the institutions' could "break down," adding that "Greece is a long-festering problem that was mishandled from the beginning by all parties," concluding that the chances of Greece leaving the euro area are now 50-50 and the country could go "down the drain." Finally, Soros notes, what worries him the most is Ukraine.
As Bloomberg reports,
The chances of Greece leaving the euro area are now 50-50 and the country could go “down the drain,” billionaire investor George Soros said.
“It’s now a lose-lose game and the best that can happen is actually muddling through,” Soros, 84, said in a Bloomberg Television interview due to air Tuesday. “Greece is a long-festering problem that was mishandled from the beginning by all parties.”
[...] And concludes with some thoughts on Ukraine...
...the war in eastern Ukraine between government forces and rebel militia supported by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin concerns him the most.
Without more external financial assistance the “new Ukraine” probably will gradually deteriorate and “become like the old Ukraine so that the oligarchs come back and assert their power,” he said. “That fight has actually started in the last week or so.”

"Belief That European QE Will Work Is Far-Fetched," Bill White Warns This Will "End Very Badly"
Zero Hedge
"I'm not sure [European QE] is going to do anything - certainly, nothing that's good. The fundamental problem here, as I see it anyway, is that the European banking system is still broken... I think, increasingly, bankers are discomforted more than anything else (it's not just the ex central bankers but increasingly the people that are still holding the levers)... they are starting to ask whether they have somehow been backed into a place where they don't really want to be.... Unfortunately, [it] is getting bigger and bigger. There is a possibility at least that this whole exercise could end very badly."

There was a crooked man
Speech delivered On House floor by James Traficant
Representative Traficant Reports On The Bankruptcy Of The United States, United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 VOL. 33, page H-1303
The Speaker - Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House.
Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11... Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth, hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner’s report that will lead to our demise.
It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; Declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H. J. R. 192, 73rd. Congress in session June 5, 1933 - Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Government Offices, Officers and Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.
The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers. With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is known as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America. This act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of Treasury to that of the Governor of the International Monetary Fund. Public Law 94-564, page 8, Section H. R. 13955 reads in part: “The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation for representing the United States?”
Gold and silver were such a powerful Money during the founding of the United States of America, that the founding fathers declared that only gold and silver coins can be money in America. Since gold and silver coinage were heavy and inconvenient for a lot of transactions, they were stored in banks and a claim check was issued as a money substitute. People traded their coupons as money, or “currency”. Currency is not money, but a money substitute. Redeemable currency must promise to pay a dollar equivalent in gold or silver money. Federal Reserve Notes (FRN's) made no such promises, and are not money. A Federal Reserve Note is a debt obligation of the federal United States government, not money. The federal United States government and the U.S. Congress were not and have never been authorized by the Constitution for the United States of America to issue currency of any kind, but only lawful money, - gold and silver coin.

The Two Tracks of Debt Slavery
Zero Hedge
Sprott Money's picture
Submitted by Sprott Money on 03/25/2015 04:54 -0400
By Jeff Nielson (original)
As has been noted in recent commentaries, the current Debtor’s Tango taking place between Greece and the lackey governments of the EU is the most surreal of political theater. In one corner, we have the new honest/legitimate government of Greece, which is seeking to negotiate a reduction in its absolutely unsustainable debt-load. In seeking this conservative and responsible approach to its fiscal management, we have the propagandists of the Corporate media relentlessly labeling it a “radical, left-wing government.”
In the other corner, we have the corrupt regimes of the EU, all lackeys of the crime syndicate readers know as “the One Bank”. They seek to simply pile more debt onto on an obviously bankrupt economy. Yet both the Vampires themselves and the corrupt liars of the Corporate media have the perverse audacity to call this economic sadism a “bail-out”. The Vampires and media-liars feign complete astonishment at why Greece’s “radical” government won’t accept this “aid”.
However, the lies and perversity currently taking place in Europe do more than highlight the irredeemable corruption of the EU. These dynamics also implicitly illustrate the complete dichotomy between the One Bank’s “two tracks” of Debt Slavery. Why has the fiscal situation with Europe’s insolvent debtor-nations degenerated into this theater-of-the-bizarre? Because in order to enslave nations in debt, the crime syndicate needs to create and then maintain a crushing, mountain of debt.
It is because of the narrow parameters of this dynamic that the One Bank has maneuvered itself into not only a “no-win” scenario, but a no-win scenario where some form of serious setback is extremely imminent. But before elaborating on the specifics here, it’s more illuminating to first contrast this with the second track of its debt-slavery strategy: where it seeks to enslave all of us in debt as individuals.
Here the “rules” by which these banksters play are totally different, because the game itself is dramatically different. The best way to elaborate on the One Bank’s personalized form of Debt Slavery is through quoting the banksters, via The Bankers’ Manifesto of 1892.
…The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.
When through the process of law the common people have lost their homes they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.
Here the thievery of this crime syndicate is beyond rapacious, it’s nothing less than Scorched
Earth. Clearly this Old World Order wants to financially destroy us, and turn us all into penniless, homeless serfs. And they are well on their way to succeeding, particularly with respect to the absurd/obscene debt-levels among the North American population.
It is at this point where we need to observe that this “strategy”, even if achievable, cannot possibly be sustainable. Yes, it is possible for some tyrannical Overlord(s) to create some totalitarian police state, ruling over entire populations of penniless serfs – in some 12th century, feudalistic, agrarian society. What is not remotely feasible (and thus not remotely sane) is to attempt to operate such a feudal society in the context of a high-tech, industrialized, 21st century economy.

Germanwings Co-Pilot "Deliberately Destroyed" Airplane, Identified As 28-Year Old German Citizen

In one of the most chilling segments of this morning's press conference describing what was found on the cockpit voice recorder, screams were heard from passengers and crew as the realisation of what was about to happen struck them all. Prosecutor Robin's findings state that when the German Captain left the cockpit - following what appeared to be - the 28-year-old German co-pilot (who was alive to the end) refused to re-open the door and began an "intentional", "controlled", and "steady" descent as he "seems to have sought to destroy the plane." Nothing indicates that this was a terrorist incident.

Saudi Arabia Imposes Naval Blockade On Red Sea Strait
Deploys 150,000 Troops As Iran Condemns Military Action
Zero Hedge
As noted earlier, the biggest significance of any Yemen conflict has little to do with its own domestic oil production, which at 133,000 bpd is negligible, but due to its location, which not only shares a border with Saudi Arabia, but more importantly due to the Bab el-Mandeb strait which connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden: it is the fourth-biggest shipping chokepoint in the world by volume (3.8 million barrels a day of oil and petroleum products flowed through it in 2013) and is just 18 miles wide at its narrowest point. It’s located between Yemen, Djibouti, and Eritrea, and connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea.

And since to Saudi Arabia preserving the logistics of oil supply is critical, it is hardly surprising that as Egypt's Ahram Gate reported earlier, the Saudi-led Firmness Storm coalition imposed a naval blockade on Bab El-Mandab strait earlier today. The Saudi navy's western fleet has also secured Yemen's main ports including Aden and Midi.
It is not just Saudi Arabia: moments ago Reuters reported that four Egyptian naval vessels have crossed the Suez Canal en route to Yemen to secure the Gulf of Aden, maritime sources at the Suez Canal said on Thursday. The sources said they expected the vessels to reach the Red Sea by Thursday evening.
The naval blockade is just part of what so far has been mostly an air-based proxy war. As Al Arabia reported previously, as part of the "Decisive Storm" coalition against the Yemen rebels, Saudi Arabia has deployed at least 150,000 soldiers in preparation for what appears to be a land assault next, an assault that already has the preemptive blessing of the US. As a reminder, Saudi Arabia will be fighting US-armed rebels, but that's a different story.
Just as importantly, and since as we reported first yesterday the Yemen conflict is merely a proxy war between the Saudis and Iran, we also now have reports that Iran has condemned Saudi Arabia's intervention, is demanding an immediate halt to the military action, and has warned that a war on Yemen won't be contained in one area.

Another Middle East War Breaks Out: Saudis Begin Bombing Yemen, US Military Taking Action

Update: *OBAMA AUTHORIZED LOGISTICAL AND INTELLIGENCE SUPPORT TO GULF, U.S. MILITARY TAKING MILITARY ACTION TO DEFEND SAUDI BORDER, TO DEFEND AGAINST HOUTHI VIOLENCE (so US weapons are being used on both sides)
John McCain - "This is as bizarre as it is misguided – another tragic case of leading from behind.”
Earlier today we reported that, on very short notice, Saudi Arabia had moved heavy military equipment including artillery to areas near its border with Yemen, "raising the risk that the Middle East’s top oil power will be drawn into the worsening Yemeni conflict." In other words, Saudi Arabia was preparing for war. Moments ago all these warnings were borne out when Al-Arabiya reported that the latest middle-east war is now official after Saudi Arabia and Arab Gulf States had launched a bombing campaign against Yemen.

[The source, who is close to leaders of Ansarullah and a member of Yemen Revolutionary committee, said what certain news agencies and channels have reported about participation of 100 war planes in the attacks is ‘sheer lies’.
He said dissemination of such news and ignoring the victories of Yemeni people including the crash of two planes show that these media are supporting Mansour Hadi and his foreign supporters.

Pawn vs King: Cameron’s Dangerous Chess Game Against Putin
By John Goss NEWS JUNKIE POST
[...] NATO forces are currently advancing towards Russia. Do they know what is waiting for them? In this global chess game, have they considered what their opponent’s next move is likely to be? Vladimir Putin is not Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. Vladimir Putin is not General Galtieri. Vladimir Putin is not President Saddam Hussein, but Mr. Putin’s country does have weapons of mass destruction. By closing in on Russia, is the west sure it can even control the middle of the board? Cameron clearly has not considered the future of his country, only his own future. He has offered himself as a sacrificial pawn to US global imperialism. Take me, he says. Sadly he can take other residents of this “sceptered isle” with him. What he fails to understand is that the UK is seen by Russia as enemy number one; at least Professor Igor Panarin considers the UK to be the main enemy.

Oil Surges, Gold and Silver Spike as Saudi Arabia Bombs Yemen
- Geopolitical tensions in Middle East escalate dramatically as Saudi Arabia bombs Yemen
- Yemen’s government seized power in coup – Regarded as hostile to Saudi and ally of Iran
- Saudi attack is an escalation of Middle Eastern proxy war between Gulf States and Iran
- Action has broader geopolitical implications in deepening cold war between the West and East
- Oil surged 6% and gold 2% on the the news
- Should oil prices return to new record highs will impact struggling global economy
[...] Gulf broadcaster al-Arabiya TV reported that the kingdom was contributing as many as 150,000 troops and 100 war planes to the operations. Egypt, Jordan, Sudan and Pakistan were ready to take part in a ground offensive in Yemen, the broadcaster said.
The Saudi’s seem determined to pull geopolitically strategic Yemen back into its orbit following the coup d’etat in February.

Failure to secure Iran nuclear deal could spark MidEast arms race – UK Foreign Sec
March 26, 2015

He called for every effort to be made to broker a satisfactory deal, insisting “the door to a nuclear deal is open, but Iran must now step through it.”
Speaking to RT on Thursday, Andrew Smith of British charity Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) said Iran does not pose a military threat to the UK.
“We heard similar things about Iraq before the catastrophic intervention that we are still seeing the human cost of 12 years later,” he told RT.
Smith stressed that UK foreign policy has bred instability in the Middle East, and has been a direct cause of “war and conflict in the region.”
“One of the legacies of the disastrous and immoral war in Iraq has been the exacerbation of tensions and the growth of ISIS,” he said.
Smith's comments were echoed by Daniel Jakopovich of Stop the War Coalition who said UK foreign policies have "greatly exacerbated violence" in the Middle East,"contributing to Islamist radicalization.”
Responding to Hammond's remarks, Jakopovich said the British government has contributed to an ongoing global arms race.
“Anglo-American wars have promoted international lawlessness and a "might makes right" approach to conducting international affairs," he said.

The Southampton University Win/Win Situation
Jewish community leaders have so far tried every trick in their book...
March 23, 2015 By Gilad Atzmon
I am thrilled by the Zionist despair surrounding the Southampton University Conference on Israel’s legitimacy. The conference, due to take place next month, plans to examine the legality of Israel in the eye of international law.
British Jews are in state of panic and for good reason. They are facing a lose/lose situation. If the conference goes ahead, it may produce some dry academic papers regarding Israeli criminality; but if the conference is cancelled, it will establish clear evidence of the vindictive nature of the Jewish leadership and its crude interference with academic freedom and the British values of tolerance and diversity.
So, here is some good news. Their relentless struggle to cancel the conference clearly suggests that Jewish community leaders are not all opposed to cultural and academic boycotts as they have been proclaiming for a while. They are actually very enthusiastic about academic Herem (Boycott, Hebrew), they just don’t like to be the ones boycotted. The current Zionist campaign against an academic gathering has abrogated the Zionist ‘moral’ argument against the BDS. This doesn’t surprise me. I have been writing about Jewish Herem culture for years. Both Zionist culture and its so-called ‘anti’ are equally intolerant of criticism. Moreover, Herem is deeply rooted in Jewish culture, ideology and heritage. Spinoza, Uriel De Costa, and yours truly have been subjected to Herem, and now it is Southampton University’s turn.
Jewish community leaders have so far tried every trick in their book. The Telegraph reported yesterday that Mark Lewis, a prominent British lawyer, said: “he would think twice before hiring someone from the south coast university.” This is a typical unreasonable indiscriminate reaction against innocent students. Unfortunately, this is consistent with the indiscriminate lethal actions made by the Jewish State against innocent Palestinians. Mr. Lewis added: “This is a one-sided conference, not a debate.” Lewis is either misinformed or simply not telling the truth. I contacted the conference organiser and found out that Israeli and Zionist academics were invited to attend the conference. Not one bothered to reply. I suppose that Alan Dershowitz might have been a perfect Zionist candidate for the conference, but he is too busy clearing his name after being implicated in a vile sex scandal together with arch paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States in 58 Minutes
March 24, 2015 by Allen L Roland
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” ~ Adolf Hitler
This must see Documentary by Oliver Stone recounts the final phase in America’s fear based shift from a freedom based Republic into its immanent spiritual death. It also outlines the financial, business and geopolitical interests underlying the War on Terror which rapidly becomes a War of Terror ~ fueled by paranoia and fear as well as an obedient Congress and media.
Stone’s powerful video documentary avoided mainstream censorship by downsizing the 9/11 false flag operation but instead cleverly opens with Martin Luther King’s prediction of the impending spiritual death of America and uses the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) published need for a new Pearl Harbor as the neocon bible for the treasonous acts by our leaders (Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, Powell, etc.) that followed ~ and let the facts speak for themselves.
Bush’s hypocritical sincere lies and fabrications as well as Rice and Cheney’s doublespeak are presented by Stone as evidence of America’s decent to absurdity with the mainstream press in lock step during this spiritual death spiral.
Obviously the Bush administration’s goal was always regime change in Iraq as Bush claimed dictatorial war powers while the sinister Cheney attempted to hide their 9/11 fingerprints through illegal renditions, Stone clearly shows this neocon Ride of the Valkyries with regime change the goal from Iraq to Iran ~ with the obvious but unspoken endorsement if not assistance of Israel and Mossad.

The Greatest Story Never Told
Trailer:


Since the mid-20th century, the world has only ever heard one side of an incredible story. The story of a boy from an ordinary family whose ambition it was to become an artist, but who instead became a drifter.
His destiny however was not to drift into the awaiting oblivion, but to rise to the greatest heights of power, eventually to become one of the most influential men who ever lived.
Now for the first time, here is a documented account of a story many believe to be…
The Greatest Story NEVER Told!
Learn the untold story about the most reviled man in history. Adolf Hitler, The Greatest Story Never Told is a 6-hour Documentary by TruthWillOut Films.
This ground-breaking documentary chronicles the rise of Germany from defeat in World War I, to communist attempts to take over Germany; hyperinflation during the Weimar Republic, widespread unemployment and misery, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power.
It also reveals a personal side of Adolf Hitler: who he was, his family background, his artwork and struggles in Vienna and what motivated him to come to power.
There’s so much hidden history to recount; FDR Pearl Harbor conspiracy, Soviet brutality, betrayal and treachery on all sides. Do we really know the true cost of war? Do we really possess all the facts?
Watch this series and uncover the real root causes of World War II. Do your own research and decide what you choose to believe. Think differently.

Debate: Saudi Arabia's invasion of Yemen
Bombs were dropped in the Yemeni capital in the early hours of Thursday without any previous notice. Most people were sleeping.
The Saudi invasion of Yemen is continuing under the pretext of protecting the government of fugitive former President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi. Some are calling this a proxy war; others say it’s more about the strategic interests of the Persian Gulf Arab states. Is Saudi Arabia planning to turn Yemen into another Libya? And how will the Ansarullah movement respond?
In this edition of The Debate, Press TV has conducted an interview with Ali Al Ahmed, the director of the Institute for (Persian) Gulf Affairs from Washington, and Richard William Murphy, a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia from New York, to answer these questions.

No matter how Saudis want to play with words, their action in Yemen is nothing but a shameless invasion. This provides a golden opportunity for Yemen to target Saudi oil production facilities by raining missiles on them, and drying up the source of war money.

Guzz
just as I thought US/Israel fake act of falling out was only a designed theatre for Iran to be baited, I can see that another bait is to keep Iran away from yemen. no surprise all the attempts to lure iran at this stage to talks and keep it busy whil am sure the had planned th attack on yemen long ago and timed it with talks with iran to make sure iran stays put only until th success of their military campaign. the they wil go back to square one. iran will be accused again. as far as I see fit, again, where is Russia and china the traitors from all this??? Iran shld threaten Saudi Arabia with bombing if it doenst stop. aslso like Syria unmasked all nations of th planet and showed their real face, including the double faced Russia and china, and all lower race Bedouins of th desert who are so pround th UK gave them a title of emir as opposed to primate. Egypt has always been as I described it the lowest of th low. a cheap Israeli agent and always wil be.

Failure of Iran nuclear talks will end in ‘evil, unconstitutional war’: US analyst
Failure of Iran nuclear talks will end in ‘evil, unconstitutional war’: US analyst
Mar 27, 2015
Dankof says the outcome of failure of nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers would be a war.
Dankof says the outcome of failure of nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers would be a war.
Former US Senate candidate Mark Dankof says the outcome of failure of nuclear talks between Iran and the world powers would be an “evil and unconstitutional war.”
“If these negotiations fail, chiefly as a result of Israeli subterfuge and Israeli subversion from within the American government, the outcome is going to be a war,” Dankof said in a phone interview with Press TV on Friday.
“A war between Israel and Iran, or the United States and Israel and Iran, or the United States and Iran alone that is a war that is immoral, evil, unconstitutional, and with absolutely no purpose whatsoever than to serve the perceived interests of the Israeli government and the extremists who lead that government,” he added.
Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal revealed that Israel spied on the nuclear talks since last year. It also reported that Tel Aviv acquired information from confidential briefings with US officials and diplomatic contacts in Europe.
Iran and the P5+1 – the US, Britain, Russia, China, France and Germany -- are currently negotiating to reach a comprehensive agreement on the country’s nuclear program as a deadline slated for July 1 draws closer.
The Journal has quoted US officials as saying that the spying operation was part of a campaign by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. They say Netanyahu attempted to undercut support for a deal by sharing the information with US lawmakers.
The political analyst also criticized Israel for spying on the nuclear negotiations.
“Israel has penetrated the American negotiating team that is conducting these negotiations with Iran,” Dankof said.
He also explained that Israeli spies gave information about the talks to the Israeli intelligence and the intelligence turned this information over to members of the Israeli embassy in the United States.
The analyst also noted that Israeli officials did everything possible to undermine and sabotage the negotiations.
