Russia backed by China and India is pushing through a takeover of the internet by a UN supranational agency to make the web truly universal. The aim of the plan is to standardize the behavior of countries concerning information and cyberspace.
Leading emerging economies supported by other United Nations members initiated the discussion around handing over internet regulation to a UN agency. At present it is controlled by private shareholders.
BRICS countries China, Brazil, India and Russia share the belief that the Geneva-based UN agency the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) would do a better job if put in charge of international cyber security, data privacy, technical standards and the global web address system.
‘Hands off our web’
This week the US House of Representatives prepares to vote on the proposal and the expectations are, there will be no great uphill struggle.Washington opposed UN regulation of the internet just weeks after the “international code of conduct for information security” was submitted to the General Assembly
‘Al-CIA-Duh Bomber’ Was a CIA Informant
Tuesday, May 8, 2012
COMMENT: Yes, it’s the same old pattern of a phony narrative to hype fear & subservience, but ultimately scripted at CIA/Pentagon/FBI headquarters and carried out by informant/double agents handled from the beginning.
Associated Press: Al Qaeda Bomb Plot: Would-Be Bomber Was CIA Informant
NECN/NBC News – Federal official: CIA’s source was bomber himself in Yemen
FLASHBACK: Terror Expert: London Bombings Mastermind Aswat is MI6 Asset
FLASHBACK: Two British SAS officers caught dressed up as Arabs to foment terror in Basra, Iraq
Just one day after reports that the CIA had foiled a plot involving a “sophisticated underwear bomb” targeted against U.S. airliners, the entire story has once again collapsed into a farce.
Just as the FBI has been caught directing every major domestic terror plot, it turns out that the supposed “bomber” was actually a CIA informant.
“U.S. and Yemeni officials say the supposed would-be bomber at the heart of an al-Qaida airliner plot was actually an informant working for the CIA,” reports the Associated Press.
“Officials say the informant was working for the CIA and Saudi Arabian intelligence when he was given the bomb. He then turned the device over to authorities. Officials say the informant is safely out of Yemen.”
So all the propaganda and fearmongering over this plot was once again over nothing -this was yet another staged incident just as the first underwear bomber event was a manufactured hoax from beginning to end.

“After the operation, a helicopter will evacuate the soldiers,” Kucherenko said, adding that the Russian soldiers will also exercise with the U.S. special service weapons in the drills in Fort Carson, Colorado.
Besides, the spokesman said, the Russian group will arrive a week ahead of the drills and attend a baseball game in the city of Colorado Springs.

While the Sahel security crisis continues to deteriorate following Tuareg rebels’ declaration of an independent state in Mali’s troubled northern territory , recent events in Nigeria indicate a potential for increased regional instability. Boko Haram, a Salafist organization seeking to overthrow the secular administration of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, has recently killed 38 civilians in a suicide car bomb targeting nearby churches holding Easter services in the northern city of Kaduna . As part of an ongoing campaign of sectarian violence, the group has strived to implement sharia law through the establishment of an Islamic State in northern Nigeria . The group’s belligerent acts of violence claimed more than 500 lives during 2011 , prompting President Jonathan to call the current security crisis more dire than that experienced during 1967’s Biafran civil war, adding that jihadi sympathizers have successfully infiltrated his government and security agencies .
The group has claimed responsibility for the August 2011 bombing of the United Nations headquarters in the Nigerian capital, Abuja 
, and its adoption of sophisticated tactics indicate that Boko Haram is receiving arms and training from abroad. Mainstream outlets can now be seen readying public opinion for an increased presence in Africa under the Right to Protect Doctrine (R2P) by warning of increased terrorist attacks in Europe, following shifts in Islamist activity away from Iraq and Afghanistan, to the “ungoverned spaces” of the Sahel 
. While the ongoing War on Terror provides the needed justification for the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) to expand its base of operations throughout the Sahel and the troubled regions of east and central Africa, the modus operandi of Boko Haram indicates foreign nurturing in numerous mediums.
Upholding the rule of international law and defending Russia’s interests are as crucial to Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy today as they were 12 years ago.
Whatever the opponents of Vladimir Putin say about him, he is definitely a pragmatic and predictable leader. Unlike his rivals who sit on the side of revolutionary romanticism, Mr Putin knew exactly where he would lead his country in the world. “Even before the elections, he drew the red lines in foreign policy that Russia would never cross,” says Alexander Rahr, director of the Berthold Beitz Centre at the German Council on Foreign Relations.
“The president’s proposed foreign policy strategy
for Russia in the third
millennium consists of defending our national interests, rather than pandering to the interests of other countries,” explains Mikhail Margelov, chairman of the Federation Council’s Committee on Foreign Affairs.
The Foreign Policy Concept of the Russian Federation, adopted 12 years ago during Mr Putin’s first presidential term, identified four main national priorities. First was strengthening international security based on the creation of a pan-European security and co-operation system. Second was forming a new world order in which the partnership between the world’s major powers is based exclusively on equality and mutual respect. Third, the Russian Foreign Ministry was tasked with creating favourable conditions for Russia in terms of international economic relations. Fourth, Russia would seek respect for human rights at the international level. None of these items has lost any relevance today.
Tsar Martyr Nicholas II
Compiled by Father Nektarios Serfes
15 November 1998
Boise, Idaho U.S.A
Introduction by Father Nektarios Serfes:
There existed in Russia, at the time of His Imperial Majesty Tsar Nicholas II, a holy commonwealth. The Tsar himself was never placed outside the Church or “above the law”, but always within the Church and subject to the law of Christ. Such a righteous Father to his people was the last Tsar, Nicholas II. It now pleases our God to reveal Tsar Nicholas and those who suffered with him, to the Church and to the whole world.
An Orthodox monarch receives his authority from God, but by what means and in what manner does it come to him? Authority to govern in the Name of God and perform the highest earthly ministry descends upon a Tsar in the Sacrament of Anointing, at the time of his coronation. After the crowning he is told that “this visible and material adornment of thy head is to thee a manifest sign that the King of Glory, Christ, invisibly crowneth thee“. The Anointing takes place after the reading of the Gospel in the Divine Liturgy. The chief hierarch anoints the Tsar with Holy Chrism on the brow, the eyes, nostrils, lips, ears, breast, and hands, saying each time: “The Seal of the Gift of the Holy Spirit.” Therefore, Nicholas II received his authority through a Sacrament. The Holy Spirit was upon him. “By rejecting the Tsar, the people blasphemed the Sacrament and trampled upon the grace of God” (Illustration History of the Russian people).
Several prophecies were given during the time His Majesty Emperor Tsar Nicholas II and his family faced their tragic fate. Indeed, not only the Tsar, but also millions and millions of others who followed in the same footsteps towards holy martyrdom. His Eminence Metropolitan Philaret, of blessed memory, wrote the following: “Unwavering faithfulness to Christ shines forth especially clearly and victoriously in the struggle of those whom Christian antiquity called ‘witnesses’ (in Greek, martyros). This struggle of martyrdom is the struggle of those who gave witness of their faithfulness, devotion, and love for Christ by dying for Him, not sparing their own lives!”
The most relevant announcement from this week’s meeting in India of the countries’ leaders is likely to be plans for a joint development bank in the mold of the World Bank

New Delhi: The Brics group of emerging world powerhouses – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – is expected to launch plans this week for a joint development bank and measures to bring their stock exchanges closer together.
Officials say the initiatives will take time as they need to sort out details. But they herald a new level of ambition for a bloc that brings together about half the world’s people. The Middle East and energy security will also be discussed, officials say.

The Bric acronym was coined in 2001 by Goldman Sachs economist Jim O’Neill, who was searching for a catchy way to encapsulate the broader shift in global economic growth towards emerging markets. South Africa joined the grouping in 2010 so that it became Brics.
The countries held their first summit in 2009 and have been criticised since as nothing more than an empty acronym as they struggle to find common cause from four different continents with radically different economies, systems of government and competing priorities.
The most relevant announcement from this week’s meeting in India of the countries’ leaders is likely to be plans for a joint development bank in the mold of the World Bank.
The initiative would allow the countries to pool resources for infrastructure improvements, and could also be used in the longer term as a vehicle for lending during global financial crises such as the one in Europe, officials say.
Brazilian trade minister Fernando Pimentel told reporters in Brasilia last week that the countries would sign a deal at the summit to study the creation of the bank.
Sudhir Vyas, a senior Indian foreign ministry official, told reporters on Monday that the Brics would have to determine how the bank would be structured and capitalised. Such an ambitious project would take time, he said.
“We don’t set up a bank every ordinary day,” he said.
Five nation stock index
A benchmark equity index derivative shared by the stock exchanges of the five Brics nations will be launched on Friday, the exchanges involved said earlier this month. They would be cross-listed, so can be bought in local currencies.
The leaders are also expected to sign agreements allowing their individual development banks to extend credit to other members in local currency, a step towards replacing the dollar as the main unit of trade between them.
A senior Indian government source said the Middle East and energy security will be high on the agenda, including Iran. The Russian ambassador in New Delhi said this week that a discussion on Syria would be among his country’s top priorities.
While the plenary session on Thursday is likely to focus on common ground, bilateral meetings could touch on more sensitive issues.
The exchange rate of China’s currency has sparked protests from countries, including Brazilian manufacturers, for being undervalued. Most member countries also face a slowdown in their economies.
“For different reasons, each of the (countries) has got some serious policy issues to deal with here that will determine whether they continue down the path we got everybody so excited about,” O’Neill said.
Despite the problems, the growth outlook is still better than in most of the developed world, meaning the Brics’ clout will likely keep growing. O’Neill predicts the bloc’s total GDP will be larger than the United States within three years and China’s economy alone will overtake the United States by 2027.

Keep in mind Vladimir Putin just paid off Rothschild debt.
Vladimir Putin, now in full control of Russia as Prime Minister, wishes to build a strong Christian nation. In a televised Christmas message on January 7 2008 Putin said:
— “The Russian Orthodox Church contributes to the promotion of moral values in society. One should not completely draw a line between the culture and the church. Of course by law in our country the church is separate from the state. But in the soul and the history of our people it’s all together. It always has been and always will be.”
Russia will make The United States reflect upon what they allowed Rothschild to do to their own country. So when you see protests against Vladimir now, keep in mind it is probably staged by The Rothschild’s trying to control Russia once again.
