John Kerry condemns Israeli settlements

In a desperate attempt to salvage the latest collapsing Mideast “peaceprocess,” U.S. Secretary of State met with Palestinian PresidentMahmoud Abbas and said:
“Let me emphasize at this point the position of theUnited States of America on the settlements is that we considernow, and have always considered, the settlements to beillegitimate.
As in any negotiation there will be moments of up and moments ofdown, and it goes back and forth. But I can tell you thatPresident Obama and I are determined, and neither of us will stopin our efforts to pursue the possibility (of peace).”
Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas was quoted as saying:
“The Palestinians are committed to negotiations thatwould lead to the establishment of an independent Palestinianstate with east Jerusalem as its capital.”
Pakistan will supply nuclear weapons to Saudi Arabia
Reports indicate that Saudi Arabia has for years invested a great dealof money in Pakistani nuclear weapons, and that nuclear weapons made inPakistan on behalf of Saudi Arabia are now sitting ready fordelivery. Technology for the weapons comes from China. Saudiofficials have been saying for years that they would not tolerate Iranhaving a nuclear capability unless the Saudis also had one.
The Saudis could take delivery of the nuclear weapons in eitherof two different ways. First, Pakistan could just delivernuclear weapons for Saudi Arabia to use, though that wouldbe considered an extremely provocative action in internationaleyes.
The second way would be for Pakistan to send its own troopsto maintain the nuclear weapons in Saudi Arabia, and maintaincontrol over them. This is similar to the way that theUnited States stations nuclear weapons in some countries,keeping them under control of U.S. armed forces.
As I’ve been saying for years, the coming Clash of Civilizations worldwar will pit the United States, India, Iran and others against China,Pakistan, the Sunni Muslim countries, and others. When I first madethat prediction in 2005, based on a Generational Dynamics analysis, itseemed completely likely to be unfulfilled, but the trend lines in thepast couple of years indicate that the prediction will be fulfilled.BBC
