Karma (Sanskrit: कर्म; IPA: [ˈkərmə] ( listen); Pali: kamma) means action, work or deed; it also refers to the principle of causality where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual. Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering. Karma is closely associated with the idea of rebirth in some schools of Asian religions. In these schools, karma in the present affects one’s future in the current life, as well as the nature and quality of future lives – or, one’s saṃsāra.

Murphy consulted lawyers about remaining leader of Scottish Labour even if he’s no longer an MP!?!? Expenses anyone?? This is how worried ALL Labour MSP’s are in Scotland. Note the article is small and in a corner? Funny that!!

Jim Murphy, the Scottish Labour leader, is set to lose his seat in the election, polling showed yesterday as it was claimed that he consulted lawyers about clinging on to the leadership. A poll by Lord Ashcroft, the Conservative commentator, suggests the SNP tsunami will also sweep away Douglas Alexander, the party’s national election co-ordinator, and Charles Kennedy, the former Liberal Democrat leader.

3f483972-186e-4466-9288-344fd1d645c4-620x411

The people have had enough!

Mr Murphy secured 51 per cent of the vote in his East Renfrewshire constituency in 2010, with a majority of 10,420 and decided to fight again believing it gave Labour the strongest chance of retaining the seat. Yesterday he was trailing the SNP by nine percentage points, down from just one point behind in January. Mr Alexander is behind by 11 points in Paisley and Renfrewshire South, while Mr Kennedy trails by 15 points in Ross, Skye and Lochaber.

Mr Murphy, who was elected Scottish Labour leader in December, is understood to have commissioned legal advice over whether he can remain in post if he loses his seat. His office denied the claim last night. However, The Times understands that his team were advised that the rules are silent on the issue and it is therefore for the party’s national executive committee to decide.

The need to commission such advice reflects growing pessimism about Labour in Scotland and a nervousness that opponents would come after him if he was not an MP. The Ashcroft poll suggested that the SNP were on course to win 55 of the 59 seats in Scotland. A Scottish Labour spokesman conceded that: “There is no gloss that can be put on these polls.”

Publishing his election manifesto yesterday, Mr Murphy painted the SNP and other smaller parties as an irrelevance and said that only Ed Miliband could defeat David Cameron. Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP leader, used the opposition leaders’ debate on Thursday to warn Mr Miliband that he would never be forgiven if he let the Conservatives back into Downing Street by refusing to do a deal with her party.  Mr Cameron seized on Mr Miliband’s failure to rule out some kind of post election co-operation. He tweeted: “Ed Miliband won’t rule out a vote-by-vote deal with the SNP so he can be PM. It would mean more borrowing and more taxes and you would pay.”

Mr Murphy said of an SNP deal: “I want to beat David Cameron at the ballot box, not [with] some shoddy back-room deal and there is only one way of doing that,” he said. “Nicola Sturgeon, Alex Salmond and all the others can huff and puff all they want but only Labour is big enough, and only Labour is strong enough, to beat the Tories.”
Today Mr Miliband will announce that the next government will establish a special Home Office enforcement unit with more than 100 staff to root out the illegal exploitation that undercuts wages and conditions for local workers.

Sold his soul to Westminster. Now he will get what he deserves.

Sold his soul to Westminster. Now he will get what he deserves.

The new unit will bring together teams from the Gangmasters Licensing Authority and specialist police units with additional Home Office enforcement staff.  It will have powers to investigate abuse, and increase prosecutions and fines against bad employers and gangmasters who exploit workers.

Russell Brands thought’s on the last leaders debate + Paxman TV debate

brand

Russell is a top man and everything he says I agree with, it is hard to disagree as he really is a very intelligent guy. The saying above he has said a few times, the best debate on this was with Jeremy Paxman, before listening to what Russell has to say about the last leaders debate on TV (Video Below) it really is worthwhile watching his BBC interview where he out debated Paxman. He doesn’t vote because he believes it makes no difference and in a way, Westminster level, he is right, Labour or Tory we all get the same rubbish. Keep in mind he is English and speaks about what England gets. He is into the 3 girls below in terms of progress into a new political system, will it happen? I doubt it, but as Russell says in the 2nd video below, we the voters have the power to change it

Paxman vs Brand – full interview – BBC News
Via BBC Newsnight on You Tube

Now you have watched this, listen to the ‘Trews’ his daily You Tube show, he brings up good points about how politicians in the main are not acting real, they are almost acting. He is about to step into politics if he has not already and I believe if he picks the right area he will win, he makes more sense than the majority of Politicians. Tell me what you think if you watched both video’s. He want’s TOTAL Change, kinda like the 3 girls who were in the TV debate. Iconic image this is below. I will leave you with the image of 3 woman who are trying to change UK politics forever and Russell’s video on the leaders debate

Looking back: Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon at Nuclear bomb rally + Why she is most powerful woman in Britain

Nicola taking part in Demonstration

Nicola taking part in Demonstration

Scottish people from all over our land came to Glasgow for this 2 weeks ago, we will keep standing up, we will keep our voice open and we WILL not let the media tell lies! We will call Politicians liars, we will call the media’s propaganda when we see it. We will NOT go away. Scotland will rise again and keep rising till we get what was PROMISED BY LONDON! We don’t do this with hate in our hearts, we do it with love and with peace. The SNP and Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s leader will have a say in UK wide politics. Take note World, this is what happens when your people stand up together, I am proud to be part of a people who have a voice, will call a liar a liar and will stand up whenever needed 

I know this is 2 weeks old but often it is good to let the dust settle and look at it again. Nicola is liked all over the UK, English people want to vote for her and she is loved by almost everyone who has no hate in their hearts. The Leader of Scotland in an Anti-Nuclear demonstration, how many countries would allow this? Seriously we must understand how powerful Nicola has become and how much London fear her, make no mistake here, she has a foot in the door at Westminster and that foot will only keep going into the door WHEN Alex Salmond gets his seat along with the projected 50+ other SNP Politicians the polls and experts are telling us will be there after May 7th. It is likely Ruth Davidson and Jim Murphy will lose their seats in the coming Election, Tory and Liberal Democrat’s could be a Scottish thing of the past and Labour could have under 5 seats.

When Westminster closed ahead of the General Election on May 7th the SNP had 6 seats, many are saying SNP will have 50 Westminster/London seats, polls are stating 40 minimum. The SNP I think would be happy with 30 but don’t underestimate how powerful Nicola has become. She has some clout and she will have a say in Westminster policies from here on in. There was Video done 11 days ago with the Economist and it is a brilliant interview. Nicola has offered SNP support to London Labour, Nicola said to Ed’s face in the last leaders debate she will offer to help him keep the Tories out of power, Ed shook his head as if to say no but lets not be fooled, if the SNP have the seats to help Labour over the line, Labour will deal the SNP in and Home Rule will be given. This is NOT about independence it is about Scotland getting the powers promised, nothing more, listen for yourself. This is why we MUST vote as many SNP or progressive party members into Westminster as a Union, the entire UK, we need more members in there wanting to break up the old boys club. I think this will happen soon. VOTE SNP AND GET THIS RICH CRIMINAL CLUB GONE!

Radioactive Water From Fukushima Is Systematically Poisoning The Entire World

fukushima-radiation-usa34-460x284

This was a few years back, it’s hard to find more info, but not surprised

Via: http://www.thesleuthjournal.com/radioactive-water-from-fukushima-is-systematically-poisoning-the-entire-pacific-ocean/

Sadly Radiation will enter, if it already hasn’t, all our oceans, rivers and more. The rain will become radioactive and Fukushima, the forgotten story will become the killer, the new ‘IN-THING” To debate and worry about in a sick World where the amount of things that could turn into an E.L.E (Extinction Level Event) I gave up telling this story as nobody seemed to care. But I just spent a few hours with the link I seen and researched, finding the entire planet is effected. We have seen MILLIONS of Animals beach from the sea’s over the last few years, Australia, West Coast USA and more. Many Animals, Dolphin’s, Crabs and tons of others have washed up, Birds are dropping from the Sky at an alarming rate suggesting the Skies are lifting up contaminated water. The video below, if you are human, want to TRY HELP!! Watch the video. 100% core meltdown in 3 reactors. This is Chernobyl x 1,000 at the very least. Research and know knowledge is power to act. We can’t stop this but we CAN protect ourselves. Once example is Milk in NEW YORK CITY was radioactive. Michio Kaku is probably the 2nd if not cleverest person on Earth, he has been a huge activist in trying to get the truth out via main stream media. This isn’t just oceans, this is happening in the great lakes and smaller lakes in the USA. Due to the way the North Pacific Current works the USA has got this worse than anyone. How do I know this? Well I research. For my stalker or anyone unwilling to believe this hit the link above,  the links below and the video directly below, I am sharing NEWS and here giving my opinions, educated opinions due to what I read and see. Main Stream Media, probably due to TEPCO have not given us the truth, 5 years after the event 3 reactors have melted into the sea. Now let me quickly explain. I am no expert but each reactor had hundreds maybe thousands of Radioactive rods, if we placed 1 (ONE) Rod into the sea it would kill millions of animals near that area, so we now know 10’s of thousands of rods have melted into our Oceans. At the time people said “This will be bad” Now years later, IF YOU WATCH THE VIDEO, you will see why it got bad

By knowing the oceans movements we understand where will get hit first and worse, but this is global

~~~~Story~~~~

Right now, a massive amount of highly radioactive water is escaping into the Pacific Ocean from the ruins of the destroyed Fukushima nuclear facility in Japan. This has been going on all day, every day for more than two years. The enormous amounts of tritium, cesium and strontium that are being released are being carried by wind, rain and ocean currents all over the northern Hemisphere. And of course the west coast of the United States is being hit particularly hard. When you drink water or eat seafood that has been contaminated with these radioactive particles, they can stick around for a very long time. Over the coming years, this ongoing disaster could potentially affect the health of millions upon millions of people living in the northern hemisphere, and the sad thing is that a lot of those people will never even know the true cause of their health problems.

For a long time, the Japanese government has been trusting Tepco to handle this crisis, but now it has become abundantly clear that Tepco has no idea what they are doing. In fact, the flow of radioactive water has gotten so bad that authorities in Japan are now calling it an “emergency” Highly radioactive water seeping into the ocean from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is creating an “emergency” that the operator is struggling to contain, an official from the country’s nuclear watchdog said on Monday.This contaminated groundwater has breached an underground barrier, is rising toward the surface and is exceeding legal limits of radioactive discharge, Shinji Kinjo, head of a Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA) task force, told Reuters.

From the ISS in space science can show clearly where radiation is. This will effect us all, badly.

From the ISS in space science can show clearly where radiation is. This will effect us all, badly.

The amount of water that we are talking about is absolutely enormous. According to Yahoo, 400 metric tons of water is being pumped into the basements of destroyed buildings at Fukushima every single day…

The utility pumps out some 400 metric tons a day of groundwater flowing from the hills above the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant into the basements of the destroyed buildings, which mixes with highly irradiated water that is used to cool the reactors in a stable state below 100 degrees Celsius. Tepco is trying to prevent groundwater from reaching the plant by building a “bypass” but recent spikes of radioactive elements in sea water has prompted the utility to reverse months of denials and finally admit that tainted water is reaching the sea. And of course all of that water has to go somewhere. For a long time Tepco tried to deny that it was getting into the ocean, but now they are finally admitting that it is…

Tepco said on Friday that a cumulative 20 trillion to 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium had probably leaked into the sea since the disaster. The company said this was within legal limits. Tritium is far less harmful than cesium and strontium, which have also been released from the plant. Tepco is scheduled to test strontium levels next.

40 trillion becquerels of radioactive tritium have gotten into the Pacific Ocean? And that is what they are publicly admitting. The reality is probably far worse. And all of that tritium is going to be around for a very long time. You see, the truth is that tritium has a half-life of about 12 years. But strontium is even worse. Strontium can cause bone cancer and it has a half-life of close to 29 years.

And now Tepco is admitting that extremely dangerous levels of strontium have been escaping from Fukushima and getting into the underground water. And of course the underground water flows out into the Pacific Ocean…Tepco said in late June that it had detected the highly toxic strontium-90, a by-product of nuclear fission that can cause bone cancer if ingested, at levels 30 times the permitted rate.

101585-full

These are all the water streams on Earth

The substances, which were released by the meltdowns of reactors at the plant in the aftermath of the huge tsunami of March 2011, were not absorbed by soil and have made their way into underground water. Subsoil water usually flows out to sea, meaning these two substances could normally make their way into the ocean, possibly affecting marine life and ultimately impacting humans who eat sea creatures.

Cesium has an even longer half-life than strontium does. It has a half life of about 30 years, and according to samples that were taken about a month ago levels of cesium at Fukushima have been spiking dramatically…Samples taken on Monday showed levels of possibly cancer-causing caesium-134 were more than 90 times higher than they were on Friday, at 9000 becquerels per litre, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) revealed.

Levels of caesium-137 stood at 18 000 becquerels per litre, 86 times higher than at the end of last week, the utility said. “We still don’t know why the level of radiation surged, but we are continuing efforts to avert further expansion of contamination,” a Tepco spokesperson stated.

Australia, Russia and all islands are radiated badly. Entire Western side from North Alaska down to Chili are gone

When cesium gets into your body, it can do a tremendous amount of damage. The following is an excerpt from a NewScientist article that described what happens when cesium and iodine enter the human body…

Moreover the human body absorbs iodine and caesium readily. “Essentially all the iodine or caesium inhaled or swallowed crosses into the blood,” says Keith Baverstock, former head of radiation protection for the World Health Organization’s European office, who has studied Chernobyl’s health effects.

Iodine is rapidly absorbed by the thyroid, and leaves only as it decays radioactively, with a half-life of eight days. Caesium is absorbed by muscles, where its half-life of 30 years means that it remains until it is excreted by the body. It takes between 10 and 100 days to excrete half of what has been consumed.

This deal seal from 2 years ago and the info on the radiation monitor is proof it will kill our planet

This deal seal from 2 years ago and the info on the radiation monitor is proof it will kill our planet

And it is important to keep in mind that it has been estimated that each spent fuel pool at the Fukushima nuclear complex could have 24,000 times the amount of cesium that was produced by the nuclear bomb that the U.S. dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War 2. Overall, the Fukushima nuclear facility originally contained a whopping 1760 tons of nuclear material. That is a massive amount of nuclear material. Chernobyl only contained 180 tons.

And of course the crisis at Fukushima could be made even worse at any moment by a major earthquake. In fact, a magnitude 6.0 earthquake hit northern Japan on Sunday. This is a nightmare that has no end. Every single day, massive amounts of highly radioactive water from Fukushima is systematically poisoning the entire Pacific Ocean. The damage that is being done is absolutely incalculable.

Please share this article with as many people as you can. The mainstream media does not seem to want to talk about this, but it is a matter that is extremely important to every man, woman and child living in the northern hemisphere of our planet.

Could ISIS be wiped out by a deadly flesh eating disease?

download

Via ATS and user Vasa Croe and of course the link page: http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/567597/Islamic-State-Raqqa-Syria-Flesh-eating-disease 

This is a horrific disease if not near a hospital, many have had it and been in hospital same day a hole opened up on their bodies. ISIS I read are either refusing treatment or lack medical help. All the Hospitals and Dr’s have fled the violence leaving no medical people or more importantly medication. Would this not just be Karma at it’s best? This is providing ISIS is not American run of course. Still a strange story to call this one. Anyway, more links below. This is a few weeks old now but I just seen it posted yesterday so ran it.

~~~~Story~~~~

The self-declared Islamic State capital is currently in the throes of an epidemic and a number of members of the Islamic State have reportedly been infected.Efforts  are reportedly being made to prevent the further spread of the Leishmaniasis skin disease, which is highly virulent, in the IS stronghold.Although organisations began work to combat the disease, this became impossible after IS is claimed to have closed down their city offices.

They also confiscated equipment and arrested officers trying to help fight the condition which can be deadly. The first case of the disease, which is caused by protozoan parasites, was discovered in September 2013. By the middle of 2014 500 people had been affected, according to a network of activists ‘Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.’

The disease is spread by flies that are attracted by the rubble and rubbish of war. It can sometimes be fatal and can also cause significant damage to parts of the body it affects. More than 2,500 cases have been recorded in the north-east of Raqqa. IS is said to have a residual force of between 3,000 to 5,000 in the city, as they attempt to strengthen their so-called caliphate.

This comes after World Health Organisation reported that Syria’s health system had collapsed, meaning that disease was spreading rapidly through a country already plagued by violence.

Real Scottish Music in Scottish Tongue

maxresdefault

I had a song shared with me by an English friend on my Facebook wall, the bottom video below,  and me being me, it got me all Scottish, because I am Scottish maybe? Many people I speak with say “I am 5th or 6th generation Scottish” or “I have Scottish Blood through great grand parents” and I like that, people wanting to know if they are a part of my land and involved in the true spirit of being Scottish. I speak to a few who have traced bloodlines back to Scotland, one friend from the USA has the same 2nd name as me and their father says they go all the way back to Scotland and we shared photos, some similar looking faces, so you never know. I could be related to thousands of American people for example, there are only 5 Million here in Scotland but at one point there was a mass leaving to the newly discovered America. I just thought I would share a few songs, all the best understanding them :D But if you have Scottish blood, do enjoy. Keep in mind, the USA is full of people with European blood, almost all  Americans are descendants of immigrants, be them through African/American’s or Europeans, Irish and Scottish seem to be the main ones

USA WARNING – Asian Dog Flu Strikes Chicago – Keep Dogs Apart!

As if American doesn't have bigger problems that this just now!

As if American doesn’t have bigger problems that this just now!

Via: Seems to be breaking news just now. Via http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-32346175

This is a story I thought about not sharing due to the ‘ISIS in the USA’ story being reported by thousands of people. But I think it’s only fair if American people have dogs and do not know about this disease “KEEP YOUR DOG AWAY FROM ALL OTHER DOGS” This could kill millions of Dogs and could be in other countries. I don’t know how Pet control works in the USA but here in Scotland/UK if someone buys a dog, moves here and has a dog, any way or reason a person will be bringing a pet onto this Island here, the Dog/Pet will be quarantined for 4 Months before they are allowed into the civilian population, this is a law we have always had, it annoy’s some, luckily most are ok with it. This is why we never have any issues with any pets coming in and spreading disease. Put it this way an Ebola Monkey would have to wait 4 months also at Animal Control Centres at Airports, any animal would, Ebola found in monkey? and we realise why we have these laws as Ebola would not spread, common sense law right? We are an Island here, dogs and all animals/pets coming into the UK are tested to make sure no virus that is bad for dogs or other pets are present, things that harm other animals or humans is possible, so we have tight laws! This is the official Government site on the matter https://www.gov.uk/pet-travel-quarantine I usually leave links below, I have left 2 and the source news above from the BBC here in the UK. This, as I say seems to be breaking just now. Please spread this around, make sure you protect your Dog and other’s dogs. This will get pandemic level for Dogs so it’s important to maybe change your dog’s walkies habits. Consult your Vet of course to make sure I am not making this story up. Keep up with the story and Chicago is a pandemic area for pets right now, PLEASE watch the quick video below so you know what signs you need to look out for, if you see any, don’t take your dog to the vet and expose to other dogs, call your vet and I am sure they will come and test the dog, at least this is my reading of the story, I may be wrong. Just use common sense peeps, this kills dogs, all dogs, not just street dogs (If you have them) it just kills all dogs if not checked and you have knowledge about the disease for dogs, this is why I put the video below. America, PLEASE!!! Check the video and your Dog! If you are in or near Chicago and your dog seems under the weather, call who you need to call, don’t take your dog into a vet with other dogs. Sorry to repeat but I love my Dog and would be hurt if anything happened, I know you are the same, so be safe America.

~~~~Story~~~~

A rare outbreak of Asian dog flu has reached almost epidemic levels in Chicago. There is concern it could easily spread to other areas of the country, and people are being urged to try to keep dogs out of contact with each other. At least 1,000 animals have become ill so far, as Ben Bland reports.

The real version of this song has a higher faster tempo, what Calum who is from Hull in England did with this song was just mindblowing, he took an already amazing song, slowed it down, brought it down a few notes and turned it into a melody. Others might hate it but I love it. I can’t even leave the lyrics below as he only sing 2/3 of the song and at different stages. I hope wherever you are in the World you enjoy this amazing piece of singing by a guy opening his heart and soul to the whole of the UK live on TV trying to change his life. I will post his 2nd song tomorrow, this was from last Saturday and I am not a huge TV fan, just football (Soccer) and movies mostly

I have been around this old building a few times, amazing old architecture from old Edinburgh. It has lay empty for half a century but now the Scottish Government has decided to pump lots of money into a renovation and give it to a music school. I love when old building’s are giving to any of the arts. Edinburgh is a very historical, theatrical, musical, festival place, every year there are over 20 festivals for the arts, all the arts. So I welcome money being spent in my City for this rather than spending it on WAR!! This is what we want in Scotland, a good country away from War with the money to educate further, Scotland is 3rd in Education in the World as things stand, the sky is the limit here, I used to live 2 minutes from here, just to the right of this image is the U.S. Consulate Edinburgh and it’s an amazing part of town with a stunning view of Arthur Seat and Edinburgh Castle . http://shaunynews.com/2014/04/22/world-health-organizations-ranking-of-the-worlds-health-systems/

The iconic Royal High School building could finally have found a permanent use after lying empty for almost 50 years Edinburgh’s oldest independent music school, St Mary’s, has been tipped to take over the building.

Many hoped the building, near the east end of Princes Street, would become a permanent home for the Scottish Parliament. But rather than the harsh noise of political debate, the building is set to be filled with the sound of the choristers of St Mary’s. The school was founded in 1880 and trains the choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in the city.

St Mary’s Music School emerged as the favourite candidate of the Royal High School Preservation Trust, a new charity formed to resist proposals for a six star hotel on the site.

The possibility that the school could move to the former Royal High School building is an unexpected development but a welcome one

St Mary’s spokeswoman

The Trust’s plans could mark the end of one of Edinburgh’s most bitter and protracted planning disputes, which has seen the council branded “philistines” after they backed the hotel plans. Hotel bosses want to add two modern wings to the main body of the Neoclassical masterpiece, which critics say is equivalent to “putting Mickey Mouse ears on the Mona Lisa.”

The proposal for St Mary’s to take up residence at the site was described as an “unexpected but welcome development” for the school, with one supporter hailing the two institutions as “a perfect fit.”

One inside source said: “What is being proposed is a school within a school. What could be more appropriate?” “It works extremely well and uses the listed building brilliantly. There is a small concert hall in the centre, there are practice rooms in the two big anterooms, there are classrooms.” A spokeswoman for St Mary’s confirmed that the school had been actively seeking a building with space for teaching and performance.

She said: “The board is actively considering whether this should be an extension of at our existing premises or a move to another building in Edinburgh. The possibility that the school could move to the former Royal High School building is an unexpected development but a welcome one.”

She went on to say: “It is very early days and we will have to see what happens, but perhaps it is fitting that a landmark building should become the home of a national institution.” Proposals for the luxury hotel are ongoing with DHP, the company making the plans, expected to present their intentions for work on the site by the end of next month. Edinburgh City Council. which owns the A-listed building, has already granted DHP a 125-year lease on the property, but it is conditional on their proposal gaining planning approval.

The Royal High School Preservation Trust was created after a rowdy public meeting in February of this year, when 300 residents gathered at a hearing to criticise the hotel plans.

A source from the trust said: “The aim first and foremost is to protect and preserve the building. If the music school wasn’t in the frame, the trust would be looking for another sustainable use.”

Neil Baxter, secretary of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, said: “There are two viable options on the table and that gives Edinburgh City Council a challenge. After many decades it seems likely that this hugely important building will be brought back to life, reinvigorating a part of the city centre which has been too long neglected.”

The 189-year-old Royal High School building was rejected as a home for the Scottish Parliament on the grounds that it was too small and would be hard to defend from terrorist attacks.

Iran urges India, China & Russia to counter NATO missile system

So, India, China and Russia could side with Iran in protest at the NATO Missile shields. These missile are shields are all American owned around Russia, China and Iran and annoying all three countries. Obama’s recent trip to India to meet with Narendra Modi was to ask India if the USA could place more Missile shields near the Chinese and Russian borders, India said NO to Obama and have since started bilateral talks with Iran, China and Russia to get them removed. Peace was found with Iran. Look at 3 years ago when it was odds on that the USA would enter Iran for War and to take their Nuclear facilities down. Here we are in 2015 and there will be no US/Iran war, so we must be happy. I am still frustrated at people stating it was “Iran/USA Agreement” only, this is not correct, this was the international community. Perhaps the G8? But India, the 2nd biggest nation on Earth siding with China and Russia is not good news

Iran has announced its readiness to cooperate with Russia, China and India on the issue of NATO’s missile shield and related threats from the military bloc, the head of its defence ministry said in Moscow.

“I’d like to support the idea of developing multifaceted defense cooperation between China, Iran, India and Russia to counter NATO eastwards expansion and installing a missile shield in Europe,” Hossein Dehghan said on Thursday, at an international security conference in Moscow.

Hours later Dehghan was cited by RIA Novosti as saying that Russia, China and Iran may hold tri-party defense talks.

“We discussed certain aspects of regional security. It was proposed to hold a trilateral meeting of Russia, Iran and China,” Dehghan said after meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

Despite a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program, the US is still going to site its missile defence installations in Europe. They are being deployed over a perceived threat from “nuclear Iran” – a pretext which Moscow called a “fairytale.” “The threat to NATO countries posed by the proliferation of ballistic missiles continues to increase… the framework [of the Iran nuclear program] agreement does not change that fact,” NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu told Sputnik. According to Russia, the controversial missile shield in Europe is staying because “the Missile Defense System was never about Iran.”

“This serves as yet more proof that references to the ‘Iranian [missile] threat’ served as a smokescreen, whereas the genuine objective is the creation of an anti-missile program with quite a different purpose,”the Russian Foreign Ministry wrote.

The US has for years insisted the missile defense system is needed for protection against potential missiles from rogue states, such as North Korea and Iran. Moscow strongly objected to new unilateral NATO military installations, citing national security threats. Russia proposed the creation of a joint system, but Washington rejected it.
