Government Announced Immigration Cap, But Brits Still Have Hots For Australia

The UK’s new coalition government has announced its plans to bring down the number of migrants entering the country.

China’s Oil March in Africa Continues

We’ve seen recently the problems which can occur when large multinational conglomerate oil companies are not careful when drilling for oil. If you consider the BP oil spill or oil leak rather, and if you realize that the United States doesn’t stand for violations of safety regulations, and yet, this happened anyway.

What’s That I Smell – Humanitarian Fertilizer and Ammonia Nitrate on the Iranian Floatilla?

Tell me does anyone really know what is in that 1100 tons of humanitarian aid on the Iranian floatilla cargo ship which will attempt to run the Israeli Blockade with two mini-attack sub escorts? Is it a ship, is it a humanitarian effort, or is it nothing more than another giant PR bomb in the International media against the Jewish State. Whatever it is, it isn’t sailing out of the goodness of Ahmedinejad’s heart, and why might I say something like that?

The People in the Middle
