This is the most dangerous time in modern history an intelligence insider update

29 August 2013: “We’re in the most dangerous time in modern world history and here’s why, here’s what’s happening,” stated my source deep within the spy world early this morning. “We’re seeing a combination of a nine-percent overall approval rating for intervention in Syria, or the absence of public support for the globalist plans by the Obama regime, the UK, the Saudis and other NATO allies. When have we seen this before, and what does history tell us? The increased likelihood of a false flag event larger and causing more public outrage than the alleged chemical weapons attacks.”

My source continued, “think Gulf of Tonkin, the Lusitania, even Pearl Harbor, use those as your historical guides for what we’re seeing today. Make no mistake, the global agenda has not changed,” he emphasized. “When their primary plan backfires or meets resistance, they have alternate plans. In the coming days or weeks, we could see an event that will be horrendous enough to change that nine-percent backing. Also, time is not on their side, they need to act within a short window as the anti-Assad ‘rebels’ are being beaten badly without Western assistance.”

Benghazi, briefly

“Remember what happened in Benghazi and our many conversations about what was really going on there, which you printed and the reports have since been proven correct. It was all about arming and training anti-Assad fighters, including the instructional use of chemical weapons in Turkey and elsewhere, along the border of Syria. People seem to forget that the Turkish consulate met Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi, the CIA logistics center, to show him that the Russians had satellite images of this training activity. Putin was not amused and gave Turkey an ultimatum, which was delivered to the United States at Benghazi.”

“Russia, however, had to do something to expose the operation for what it was. The primary attacking force was Ansar al Sharia, a military arm of Iran, which is a proxy nation state of Russia. Connect the dots. Do people really think Assad used chemical weapons on a retreating rebel force?”

Pawns a-Plenty – Setting the global chessboard

“Look at all of the military assets being moved into that region. I told you last October, and you reported it, that we are engaged in a proxy war against Russia and China. Both countries have a huge stake in Syria, militarily and economically, especially Russia. Oh, and is John McCain out of his [multiple expletives deleted] mind? This designated loser of the 2008 presidential campaign is talking as if any action in Syria is going to happen in a vacuum. As I said before, any action will not be in a vacuum or without a tit-for-tat response,” stated this source.

“Launching cruise missiles into Syria will likely fall not only upon innocent civilians, but on Iranian forces, Russian forces – Russia has over 100,000 ‘military advisors there now, and perhaps even some Chinese assets. What do you think their response will be?” he asked rhetorically. “This is asymmetrical warfare on steroids. The response might not be what everyone expects. In fact, we should be looking for the unexpected, as we are about to be blindsided.”

“Do you think that telegraphing our target list and stating that strikes will be brief and limited is by the incompetence of the Obama regime, or by design? It’s be design,” stated my source, who added that this will provide the opportunity to the Russians and other essential assets to get out of the way. “And therein lies the ‘flash-bang, pyrotechnic display of the magic show I’ve been talking about, that is intended to divert everyone’s attention from what’s really about to happen,” he emphasized.

“This is not a ‘zero sum game’ confined to Syria Again, this is about setting up the globalist takeover of the world’s economic system, killing off the U.S. dollar to have it replaced by a basket of currencies, or SDRs, and controlling all transactional activity everywhere on the planet under one mechanism. It will be done by using Syria as the trigger, oil as a weapon, and striking at the weakest aspect of American power – the U.S. dollar, which has been the target all along.”

“What better way to accomplish this by blaming the economic ‘collapse’ on the ‘unfortunate and unseen’ consequences of a ‘humanitarian mission’, saving the Syrians from a dictator who used chemical weapons on his own people? It’s all a lie, and we’re being played as fools. This is an international bankers’ war that will result in heavy causalities.”

Consider that until Western/globalist meddling in Syria, the country was a relatively stable and religiously tolerant secular state. Today, the Syrian death toll as a result of this Western-manufactured civil war stands at and estimated 150,000 dead in Syria alone. Also, over a million Syrians have been displaced and are now refugees. According to a recent assessment made by geopolitical analyst and former Indian diplomat Gajendra Singh, Syria will rapidly fall into a bloodbath that will make 150,000 dead just a small taste of what’s to come when Assad is toppled. Removal of Assad will result in the wholesale slaughter of the diverse religious sects. Responsible estimates from those familiar with the geopolitics of Syria estimate that 20% of a population of twenty-million will be killed – or a total of 4 million people.
Watch for a false flag

“The globalists are financing all sides of this conflict to assure the accomplishments of their objectives. When things go hot in Syria and the Middle East, we could see something very bad happen in Saudi Arabia, or something to affect the production or free flow of oil, the single factor that is keeping the U.S. dollar relevant. We could see something happen to threaten, hinder or even temporarily halt oil shipments across the globe. Also, with the U.S. preoccupied, China could well move on the Japanese Senkaku islands, North Korea will ramp up their mischief, and other areas will gradually become unglued. It’s all one big transfer of power, transfer of wealth, and a global economic reset.”

“Understand this: the globalist objectives have not changed. The absence of popular support just makes this whole situation much more dangerous, and raises the possibility of ‘false flag events’ of similar historical precedent to change public opinion. Something much bigger than we’ve seen to date. People are just not thinking big enough.”

WARNING! Iran and Syria - Don't Mess with Israel!

We are presently at a time when we are constantly seeing Israel’s border enemies ever more emboldened to stir up strife and lash out against Israel.  As this present conflict in the Middle East intensifies and Israel sees herself ever alone in this big bad evil world, DO NOT expect Israel to just idly sit by and watch their nation be wiped off the map of planet earth. With Iran and Syria ever breathing threats at Israel and Israel's border enemies doing like wise the tensions are extremely high in the Middle East and in the world. We as Bible believers know without a shadow of a doubt that Almighty God has GREAT things for Israel but until they believe they will find that they are all alone in Satan's big bad Israel hating world (Zech. 12:2-3, 13:8-9, 14:2-3)!
WARNING O Islamic Nations! Don't Mess with Israel!

Just in the last few months alone we have seen Israel’s border enemies seeking to bait and provoke Israel to engage them and rally world opinion and its leaders against them. Israel’s border enemies - especially the Palestinian people - sadly are nothing but the pawns and victims of the anti Semitic Arab nationsIran and Russia. These weaker Islamic nations are more than willing to heed these voices and are rabidly chomping at the bit to destroy Israel and occupy Israel’s land.
Under Obama and the progressive Left we have seen America forsake Israel and thrown her under theMiddle East Islamic bus.

Also - as of late- we have seen the world led by the United States seeking to strip from Israel it present day borders and bullying them into a forced agreement with those who absolutely abhor them and seek their utter destruction. Sadly, America has always beenIsrael’s strongest ally, but at present - under Obama and the progressive Left - we have seen America forsake Israel and thrown her under the Middle East Islamic bus while alsosupporting the Islamic Brotherhood. With an anti-Israeli Europe and now a current anti-Israeli U.S. administration, Israel’s back is totally up against the wall and they know it. 
Let me give a most solemn warning to ALL NATIONS of the EARTH, DON'T MESS WITH THE APPLE OF ALMIGHTY GOD'S EYE.
May I - a gentile - who personally knows the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through my saving relationship to the Messiah of Israel as the Holy Scriptures dictate (Psalm 110:1, Isa. 53, John 1:12, 3:16-17) - give a most solemn warning to ALL NATIONS of the EARTH. DON'T MESS WITH THE APPLE OF ALMIGHTY GOD'S EYE (Gen. 12:3, Zech. 2:8)!! Even though Israel - at this moment - is OUT OF THE WILL of God, they STILL represent Almighty God's future plan and promises for the nations of the world under Jesus (i.e., Salvation) Messiah in the  Kingdom Age and for ETERNITY (Isa. 11:1-10, Micah 4:1-3, Zech 12:8-14, 13:1, 14:1-4, Rom. 9-11, Rev. 1:7, 20:6).
When the present world which we are living in is becoming more and more hostile and aggressive towards Israel, DO NOT expect to see Israel idly stand by and let the world decide their fate and eradicate them from off of the face of the earth. Israel is a military might in that region with nukes and is armed to the teeth. As the world continues its anti-Semitic agenda they will one day choose to look the other way and allow Israel’s enemies in that region to grossly cross the line with Israel. It will BE THEN thatIsrael - in the reaction of self defense and national survival – WILL FINALLY strike back with great fury and military might. It will be at this time that Israel will TOTALLY institute the "Limbaugh Doctrine" against their border enemies and absolutely secure their borders. They will obliterate and wipe out their border enemies unto the point that they will achieve finally complete safety and security (Ezek. 38:8, 11-12)Israel will bring about their “own” peace and the world at that time will be forced to recognize it.

It will be at this time that Israel will TOTALLY institute the "Limbaugh Doctrine" against their border enemies and absolutely secure their borders.

It will be after this time that a man from Europe will rise up, broker a deal and lend his might to a covenant (peace treaty) on behalf of Israel’s greatly DEFEATED enemies. This European leader will enter into a seven year covenant with Israel not from a position of dominance but rather from a position of weakness (Dan. 9:27, Rev. 6:2)The prophetic wheels are in motion to the point of fulfillment. As we look out of our windows, all is being set around us to bring in these fulfilling “End Time” events”.

As we draw closer to that FINAL HOUR, expect Israel’s demonic wrathful psychotic enemies to continue to rage and fight AGAINST Israel and their right to existence in the world (Zech. 12:2-4,14:2-4, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:1-3, Rev 12, 16;13-16), all the while knowing that Israel can NEVER be eradicated -  (2 Sam. 7:24, 1 Chr. 17:22, Jer. 31:35-36, Rom. 9-11) and driven out of their land again, even when the Anti Christ wages his ALL OUT war on Israel and establishes his seat there - in the last 3 ½ years called the GREAT tribulation - yet he will still fail, but Israel will abide FOREVER (Dan. 11:45, Zech. 12:2-4,14, 2 Thess. 2:8, Rev. 19:19-20)!

As we draw closer to that FINAL HOUR, expect Israel’s demonic wrathful psychotic enemies to continue to rage and fight AGAINST Israel and their right to existence in the world.

The land of Canaan has been given solely unto the children of Israel forever by Almighty God and if you can destroy the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS GOD OF ALL CREATION then you can have the land (Deut. 11:24-25, Josh. 1:3-5, Ezek. 40-48). My friend’s, that is what the FINAL battle of Armageddon is all about (Zech. 12:2-4, 14:2-4, 2 Thess. 2:8-12, Rev. 16:13-16), seeking to over throw Almighty God!

It will be at the END of all of these events (seven years to the exact day from the strengthening of the covenant) that Almighty God’s Son, the Messiah of Israel will RETURN from Heaven's glory and destroy the armies of the anti Christ which have gathered against Israel and then He will establish His glorious Kingdom reign for a thousand years in Jerusalem (Isa. 11:1-10, Micah 4:1-3, Zech 12:8-14, 13:1, 14:1-4, Rev. 1:7, 20:6). In these brief seven years, Israel will have come full circle. Finally, it will be during this time of great testing and horrific persecution by the gentile nations under the Anti Christ (Isa. 24:5-6, Zech. 13:8-9,12:9-7,13) that Israel will turn from their godless ways and receive their Messiah and Savior, the Lord Yeshua Messiah (Deut. 4:30, Psalm 2; 110, Isa.25:9, 45:17, Jer. 33:16, Zech. 12:8-14,13:1,9, Rom. 11:26).
It will be at the END of all of these events that Almighty God’s Son, the Messiah of Israel will RETURN from Heaven's glory and destroy the armies of the anti Christ which have gathered against Israel.

It will take the Divine judgment and the natural and SUPER natural ravishing of planet earth and her godless inhabitants (Isa. 24:5-6, Matt. 24, Rev. 13) - which concludes with the final blood bath of the Battle of Armageddon (Zech. 12:2-4, 14:1-4, Rev. 16:13-16, Rev. 19:11-21) - to bring Israel to the place of repentance and deliverance (Isa. 25:9, Zech. 12:8-14, 13:1,9).

My friend, as these events continue to unfold right before our very eyes may you be sure that you know the Savior of the world, King of the Jews and Lord of ALL creation, the Jesus Messiah as your personal Savior. All depends on what you will do with ALL that He has done for you (John 3:16-17, 2 Cor. 5:12-21)!

The Kingdom of Heaven is TRULY at hand!

US could produce own justification for Syrian intervention

WASHINGTON — The United States would provide its own justification for military intervention in Syria if necessary, but any response would be limited, the White House said on Thursday.

“When the president reaches a determination about the appropriate response … and a legal justification is required to substantiate or to back up that decision, we’ll produce one on our own,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday at a press briefing.

“What we’re talking about here is something very discrete and limited,” he added.

Meanwhile, a United Nations Security Council of the five permanent members ended Thursday evening with no real progress over an agreement.

The meeting Thursday afternoon started breaking up after less than an hour, with the ambassadors of China, France, Britain, Russia and the United States steadily walking out. The meeting was reportedly be held at the behest of Russia.

It was the second time in two days that the five Security Council powers came out of a meeting on Syria with no progress.

Russia remains firmly opposed to any action, saying there is no evidence the Syrian regime was responsible for the attack, as the US and its allies contend.

During the press briefing in Washington, Earnest rejected comparisons made by members of Congress and commentators alike that drew parallels between military action in Syria and the 2003 US invasion of Iraq. Then-state senator Barack Obama opposed President George W. Bush’s involvement in Iraq, which was supported by claims that Iraqi leader Sadaam Hussein was stockpiling weapons of mass destruction.

“I don’t agree these are similar situations. There are very important differences,” said Earnest. “What we saw in that circumstance that an administration was searching high and low to produce evidence to justify a military invasion, an open-ended military invasion of another country, with the final goal being regime change,” he said. “That was the articulated policy of the previous administration.”

Obama administration members, including the president himself, have emphasized repeatedly that the US goal is primarily to issue a response to the chemical weapons attack, and not to directly bring about a regime change in Damascus.

Later on Thursday, a top-level group of administration representatives led by US Secretary of State John Kerry and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel will brief House and Senate leaders on the situation in Syria. The briefing — in which the cabinet members will be joined by National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper — will not be classified, and comes after a number of key senators voiced their reservations about the Obama administration’s policy toward Damascus.

Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and senior White House officials will convene a briefing, set for 6 p.m. ET, for leaders of the House and Senate from both parties, as well as the chairmen and ranking members of relevant congressional committees.

Congressional leaders from both parties have repeatedly said in recent days that President Barack Obama must consult Congress prior to initiating any military involvement in Syria, including airstrikes. Over one quarter of House representatives — 98 Republicans and 18 Democrats — have signed a letter demanding that any military action in Syria come first to a vote in Congress.

“I don’t want to leave you with the impression that this conference call is the first or the last medium for consulting congress. It’s not,” Earnest emphasized Thursday afternoon.

Just hours before the scheduled conference call, British Prime Minister David Cameron defended intervention in Syria during a raucous session of Parliament.

The flurry of legislative consultations, combined with an increasingly long time frame for UN investigators of last week’s chemical weapons attack against Syrian civilians mean that any retaliatory strikes against the Syrian regime are likely to be days away.

UK Should Wait for Results of UN Probe in Syria

MOSCOW, August 29 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called for patience in the situation around Syria, the Foreign Ministry reported.

In a phone conversation requested by the British side, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague informed Lavrov of a British-proposed draft UN resolution authorizing “the necessary measures” to protect Syria’s civilians.

But Lavrov told Hague that it was necessary to wait until UN experts finished their probe into claims that chemical weapons had been used in Syria.

Western powers are considering armed intervention in the two-year civil war after hundreds of people were killed last week in the Syrian capital Damascus in an apparent nerve gas attack that the Syrian opposition claimed was performed by government forces.

The Syrian government quickly denied the allegations and said it had evidence of rebel groups using chemical weapons.

Syria has provided UN inspectors with proof that Syria’s authorities had not used poisonous substances, but that “terrorists” had used them, a Syrian deputy foreign minister said Wednesday.

A UN team of chemical weapons investigators started working in Damascus last week.The team is expected to visit three sites of alleged chemical weapons attacks, including the one last week in Ghouta, an eastern part of the city.

Western countries could launch an attack on Syria within days, Reuters reported Tuesday, citing sources who attended a meeting between US envoys and Syrian rebels.

The United Nations Security Council has so far not authorized any military intervention in the Syrian crisis. Moscow, along with Beijing, has previously vetoed three UN Security Council resolutions condemning Syrian President Bashar Assad's government.

Russia has been Syria's most important ally during the civil war. Moscow has sent to Damascus some weapons that it said were being supplied under previously agreed deals.

Russia harshly criticized the United States on Tuesday for allegedly using “unproven excuses” to justify military action in Syria and said Moscow was “seriously disappointed” by Washington’s decision to put off a bilateral meeting to discuss the crisis.

Report: Russia to send two ships to east Mediterranean

Reuters, Moscow

Russia will send two ships to the east Mediterranean to strengthen its naval presence because of the “well-known situation” there, Interfax news agency said on Thursday referring to the Syria crisis.

The agency quoted a source in the armed forces’ general staff as saying an anti-submarine vessel and a missile cruiser would be sent in the coming days because the situation “required us to make some adjustments” in the naval force. The Defense Ministry was not immediately available for comment.

Meanwhile, Britain has sent six RAF Typhoon jets to its Akrotiri base in Cyprus in a move to protect British interests as tensions grow over Syria, the Ministry of Defense said Thursday.

“This is purely a prudent and precautionary measure to ensure the protection of UK interests and the defense of our Sovereign Base Areas at a time of heightened tension in the wider region,” it said, adding the jets would not take part in any direct military action against Syria.

Watchers Indoctrination Continues With Story Of Good Nephilim On Earth Fighting "Evil" To Save Humanity

The film follows the coming of age story of Clary Fray, who discovers she’s no ordinary teenage girl, but a descendant of the Shadowhunters, a race of angelically gifted part-humans (with a reference to the biblical Nephilim) infused with angelic blood in order to battle the constant threat of demon activity on earth. The tale is imaginative on one hand, as it reveals a secret supernatural world at work in Manhattan, and a bit cliché on the other, relying on a teenage love triangle in a world of vampires, werewolves and other creepy crawlies. […] at one point in the film, the primary Shadowhunter and Clare’s love interest explains that all the gobbledygook about Shadowhunters being borne of angel blood is probably hogwash, that modern Shadowhunters know better than to subscribe to all that superstition and that in his years of fighting demons on a regular basis he’s “never seen an angel.” Furthermore, it’s revealed, churches, synagogues and temples are really all depositories for Shadowhunter weaponry and – by implication – not really places that link in any way to any real god of any kind.

For some reason, it seems easy for book and movie audiences to accept the idea that evil is real.

Especially in the supernatural stories that have become cultural phenomena – like the “Twilight” and Cassandra Clare’s “The Mortal Instruments” series – authors and moviemakers dabble freely in vampires, werewolves, demons and more, and their audiences readily accept that there is a force for evil beyond human eyes.

Perhaps it’s just the natural result of watching the evening news: Seeing the corruption of our leaders, the shamefulness of greed, the horrors of war, death, crime and pestilence would lead anyone to believe there is something or someone driving humans to do evil.

But if audiences “educated” to believe there is no supernatural and all the cosmos is explained by science can nonetheless accept the existence of the demons, why not also the existence of God?

Few places have this disparity and seeming contradiction in logic been more evident than in the new film in theaters, “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” a movie based on the novel by the same name.

The film follows the coming of age story of Clary Fray, who discovers she’s no ordinary teenage girl, but a descendant of the Shadowhunters, a race of angelically gifted part-humans (with a reference to the biblical Nephilim) infused with angelic blood in order to battle the constant threat of demon activity on earth.

The tale is imaginative on one hand, as it reveals a secret supernatural world at work in Manhattan, and a bit cliché on the other, relying on a teenage love triangle in a world of vampires, werewolves and other creepy crawlies.

The movie is mostly entertaining, if a bit long, and has some intriguing and colorful characters who nonetheless are given a laughably bad script to work with. There were a few times in my theater when the audience laughed out loud at the corny dialogue … in moments when it wasn’t supposed to be funny.

The story is clearly a tale of the times, with a teenage good girl trying to decide just how “bad” she can be, geeks, hipsters, coffee, smart phones, religious multiculturalism, universalism and multiple assertions that being homosexual is OK. Really. It is. Just in case you missed it. It’s OK, and only oppressive old people who want to do really bad things to you if they find out who you really love are keeping you in the closet.

But what’s really telling about the story is that it paints a world filled with supernatural evil and supernaturally equipped humans, but no supernatural good. Nor god, for that matter.

In fact, at one point in the film, the primary Shadowhunter and Clare’s love interest explains that all the gobbledygook about Shadowhunters being borne of angel blood is probably hogwash, that modern Shadowhunters know better than to subscribe to all that superstition and that in his years of fighting demons on a regular basis he’s “never seen an angel.”

Furthermore, it’s revealed, churches, synagogues and temples (I don’t think the movie said “mosques”) are really all depositories for Shadowhunter weaponry and – by implication – not really places that link in any way to any real god of any kind.

So why the ready acceptance of supernatural evil, but no room at the inn for God?

Perhaps it’s just political correctness.

Or perhaps, as was stated before, the existence of evil is obvious because people everywhere have personally experienced it. But of God, far too few people have had any personal experience.

And if that’s the case, the blame for God’s absence in the movies doesn’t belong with the moviemakers, but with those who have experienced God and are keeping it to themselves.

War Games: The Syrian Military Theater Of Operations In Two Charts

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says that US forces are "ready to go" if the administration decides to strike against alleged Syrian chemical weapon use. As Bloomberg notes in the infographic below, US Navy guided missile destroyers in the Mediterranean Sea are within range of Syrian targets.. and the ships have a combined inventory of more than 200 cruise missiles. On the other side, the Syrian Air Defense system is very robust, and as Stratfor notes, with an estimated 54,000 personnel, Syria's air defense network is twice the size of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's air force. Here is the Syrian theater of operations...
The US Assets In Place (via Bloomberg)

And Syria's Air Defense Network (via Stratfor)

As the United States weighs a military response to the Syrian regime's reported use of chemical weapons, one of the largest concerns will involve countering Syria's robust air defense network. With an estimated 54,000 personnel, Syria's air defense network is twice the size of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's air force and air defense command combined at the start of the NATO campaign in 2011. Syria's Air Defense Command consists of the 24th and 26th anti-aircraft divisions, which comprise thousands of anti-aircraft guns and more than 130 surface-to-air missile (SAM) batteries.
The bulk of Syria's SAM weaponry is composed of the SA-2, SA-3, SA-5, SA-6 and SA-8 SAM systems, which were also operated by Gadhafi's forces. However, the Syrians operate these systems in far greater numbers, have devoted significant resources to maintaining and upgrading these missile batteries and have also successfully deployed their SAM systems in a dense and overlapping layout that would complicate operations to suppress enemy air defenses.
Though also a Russian ally, Gadhafi did not have the more advanced Russian air defense systems that the al Assad regime possesses. For example, Iran reportedly financed Syria's acquisition of 50 SA-22 systems first delivered in 2007 -- 10 of which allegedly ended up in Iranian hands. The Syrians are also thought to operate several SA-11 systems, which the Libyans did not have. Syria's defenses against an air campaign are not restricted to the ground.Its air force can contribute dozens of fighter aircraft and interceptors, which any intervention force would also have to contend with.

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) -- Jordan will not be used as a launching pad for attacks on Syria and the kingdom favors a diplomatic solution to the crisis, a Jordanian government spokesman said Wednesday.

A U.S.-led strike on Syria in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by President Bashar Assad's regime likely would involve cruise missile attacks from the sea, which would not need to cross or make use of Jordanian territory.

But the remarks underline the U.S. ally's efforts to avoid further friction with its larger neighbor for fear that Assad or his Iranian backers could retaliate.

The remarks come a day after Jordan hosted a meeting of top commanders from Western and Middle Eastern countries, including some that are likely to participate in a military action.

"Jordan will not be a launching pad for any military action against Syria," said spokesman Mohammad Momani, who is also the country's information minister.

He said Jordan prefers a "diplomatic solution to the Syrian crisis" and called on the international community to "consolidate efforts in that regard."

Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, met with Arab and Western peers to discuss ways to bolster the security of Syria's neighbors against possible attacks, chemical or other, by Assad's regime, a Jordanian security official said. Army chiefs of staff from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Canada also attended the meeting in Jordan.

Syrian state radio, quoting an unnamed political commentator, accused Jordan in news bulletins Tuesday of participating in a U.S.-led "aggression" for hosting the meeting.

Similar meetings took place earlier this year in Britain and Qatar. The Jordanian official said more meetings were planned in the near future. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not allowed to speak publicly to journalists.

Hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled into Jordan from Syria. On Wednesday, a representative of the United Nations' refugee agency said as many as 200 enter Jordan daily, but none had come from the area affected by the alleged chemical weapons attack in the suburbs of Syria's capital, Damascus.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Action Front, the political arm of Jordan's Muslim Brotherhood, condemned a possible U.S. military intervention in Syria.

"It will not help the Syrian people, but aims first and foremost at boosting American and Zionist interests by weakening and dividing Syria and imposing a political regime that would be a puppet to the Americans," the group said in a statement.

The group also warned of the "serious repercussions" on the Palestinian issue, saying a weakened Syria would allow Israel to impose "self-tailored solutions to the lingering Arab-Israeli conflict."

Glenn Beck Says Intervention In Syria Will Establish One World Government

President Obama 'sure Syria behind chemical attack'

US President Barack Obama says the US has concluded that the Syrian government carried out a chemical weapons attacks near Damascus.

He said the use of chemical weapons affected US national interests and sending a "shot across the bows" could have a positive impact on Syria's war.

But in the interview with PBS, said he had not yet made a decision about whether to intervene militarily.

His comments follow a day of behind-the-scenes wrangling at the UN.

The UK had been pushing for permanent members of the UN Security Council to adopt a resolution which would have authorised measures to protect civilians in Syria.

However, Syrian ally Russia refused to agree to the resolution and the meeting produced no end to the diplomatic stalemate which has long characterised the UN position on Syria.

The US State Department criticised "Russian intransigence" and said it could not allow diplomatic paralysis to serve as a shield for the Syrian leadership.

Critics have questioned what purpose a limited strike on Syria could serve, but Mr Obama said it would send the government of Bashar al-Assad "a pretty strong signal that it better not do it [use chemical weapons] again".

The US has yet to produce the intelligence it says shows Mr Assad's government is guilty of using chemical weapons, and UN weapons inspectors are still investigating inside Syria.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has said they need four more days to complete their investigations.


No Restraint on Washington's Criminality Will Lead to Nuclear War

Researcher remotely controls colleague's body with brain

On Aug. 12, University of Washington researcher Rajesh Rao sent the finger-flicking brain signal to his colleague, Andrea Stocco, in a demonstration of human-to-human brain signaling, according to a university announcement.

The announcement follows a rapid series of advances in the field of brain-computer interfaces, devices that read brain signals and typically try to translate them into motions in robotic prosthetic arms or legs. Paralyzed patients demonstrated the control of robot arms using signals from brain implants last year, for example. And researchers at Duke University and Harvard have demonstrated the transfer of brain signals between rats, and from a person to a rat, as well. So-called "transcranial magnetic stimulation," which sends magnetic pulses to the brain, has become a treatment for neurological ailments such as Parkinson's disease.

A video of the experiment released on the lab team's website shows Rao observing a cannon-firing video game while wearing an electrical brain-signal reading cap. By imagining his right finger flicking during the game, he triggered the actual motion in Stocco, who sat in a distant lab, wearing a cap designed to send magnetic stimulation signals to his brain. In effect, Rao's thought was transferred across the campus, via the Internet, to trigger the motion in Stocco, who described it as feeling like an involuntary twitch, according to the announcement.

"The Internet was a way to connect computers, and now it can be a way to connect brains," Stocco said, in a statement. "We want to take the knowledge of a brain and transmit it directly from brain to brain."

The researchers received approval from the university's medical ethics board before proceeding with the experiment.

"What they did is kind of like using a phone signal to trigger a magnetic jolt to the brain," says Duke University neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis. "It's not a true brain-to-brain interface where you would have communication of signals between people. This is one-way," Nicolelis says. "So, I would say it is a little early to declare victory on creating a true human brain interface."

"It's pretty wild, but it's real," says university spokeswoman Michelle Ma, about the human brain-to-brain result. The researchers plan to publish the result in a scientific journal, Ma says, but wanted to establish the priority of their claim in a fast-moving field by making the announcement now.
