U.S. Senate Passes Iran Oil Sanctions as EU Blacklist Grows

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-12-02/u-s-senate-passes-iran-oil-sanctions-as-eu-blacklist-grows.html

The Senate bill, passed unanimously yesterday, would give the president the power starting July 1 to bar foreign financial institutions that do business with Iran’s central bank from having correspondent bank accounts in the U.S. If enacted, it could be much harder for foreign companies to pay for oil imports from Iran, the world’s third-largest crude exporter. The Obama administration opposes the legislation.

This gives Russia, China and part of Europe a choice between Iran’s Oil and American Federal Reserve Debt slavery. I am betting they pick the oil.

Does anybody remember what prompted Japan to attack the United States?,,,

http://www.pearlharbor.org/history-of-pearl-harbor.asp

U.S., Britain, and the Netherlands froze Japanese assets. This prevented Japan from buying oil, which would, in time, cripple its army and make its navy and air force completely useless.

Toward the end of 1941. With the Soviets seemingly on the verge of defeat by the Axis powers, Japan seized the opportunity to try to take the oil resources of Southeast Asia. The U.S. wanted to stop Japanese expansion but the American people were not willing to go to war to stop it. The U.S. demanded that Japan withdraw from China and Indochina, but would have settled for a token withdrawal and a promise
not to take more territory.

Prior to December 1941, Japan pursued two simultaneous courses: try to get the oil embargo lifted on terms that would still let them take the territory they wanted, and … to prepare for war.

See a parallel here ?

Putin prepares the Russian empire to strike back

Accepting the presidential nomination of his United Russia party last month in an otherwise tedious speech, Putin said: “When I hear people shout out ‘Russia’, I think the entire audience should do that.” The response, according to witnesses, was a deafening chant of ‘Ro-see-ya! Ro-see-ya!” while Putin pounded his fist on the podium

December and the history of Russia.

The Rise

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decembrist_Revolt

The Decembrist revolt or the Decembrist uprising, took place in Imperial Russia on (26 December New Style),

Unification of republics On 28 December 1922, a conference of delegations from the Russian SFSR, the Ukrainian SSR and the Byelorussian SSR approved the Treaty of Creation of the USSR and the Declaration of the Creation of the USSR, forming the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. These two documents were confirmed by the 1st Congress of Soviets of the USSR and signed by the heads of the delegations on 30 December 1922.

The Fall

On 8 December 1991, the presidents of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus signed the Belavezha Accords, which declared the Soviet Union dissolved and established the Commonwealth of Independent States in its place. While doubts remained over the authority of the accords to do this, on 21 December 1991, the representatives of all Soviet republics except Georgia signed the Alma-Ata Protocol, which confirmed the accords. On 25 December 1991, Gorbachev yielded to the inevitable and resigned as the President of the USSR, declaring the office extinct. He turned the powers that had been vested in the presidency over to Yeltsin, the President of Russia.

Note: It was 69 years to the day from 26 December 1922, to 25 December 1991.

Or is this why?

December 25th was in the 3rd century known as Sol Invictus a Babylonian Feast to the Sun god (Baal) adopted by the Romans and later incorporated in to the liturgy by the Roman Church. So the reader can decide whether the traditions of December 25th are suitable to honor God or man. Some of these traditions are mentioned in the 10th Chapter of Jeremiah. Although the book is not chronological, let me assure you, reading the 10th Chapter first, and then the surrounding Chapters to place it in context will be a sobering experience.

Outline of Chapters 7-15 of Jeremiah

7- Repentance their Only Hope
8- “The Harvest is Past”
9- The Broken-Hearted Prophet
10- Jehovah the True God
11- The Broken Covenant
12- Jeremiah’s Complaint
13- The Marred Girdle
14, 15 Jeremiah’s Intercession

May God bless you all.
