WASHINGTON -- After a high-visibility display of military power aimed at deterring North Korean provocations, the White House is dialing back the aggressive posture amid fears that it could inadvertently trigger an even deeper crisis, according to U.S. officials. The U.S. is putting a pause to what officials described as a step-by-step plan the Obama administration approved earlier this year, dubbed "the playbook," that laid out the sequence and publicity plans for U.S. shows of force during annual war games with South Korea. The playbook included well-publicized flights in recent weeks near North Korea by nuclear-capable B-52 and stealth B-2 bombers, as well as advanced F-22 warplanes...the U.S. didn't believe North Korea had any imminent plans to take military action in response to the exercises...U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed the risks associated with the playbook and concluded there was a low probability of a North Korean military response because...."They are interested first and foremost in regime survival."...

3/27/13 U.S. Tripping to 'Reshape 'Middle East': First stop Palestine

Will Obama's visit shape a new Middle East?
3/25/13 http://www.npr.org/sections/middle-east/

digest note: O-K corral regional assets
Every USraeli word and move is directed to salvaging its global domination. Why was Palestine #1 stop on this regional operation?

In Ensuring Israel's Qualitative Military Edge (QME see below) - the US proxy whose very existence depends on the US, as President Shimon Peres warned. It is the lynchpin to 'unite' and leverage Arab-Israeli client state assets - Jordan and Turkey, faithful fascist feudal Arab client states, Qatar, Jordan, plus Arab League and GCC - against 'uncooperative' Iran and Syria that dare oppose the hegemon to defend their national sovereignty and lead resistance to anti-USrael domination. Not revolutionary anti-imperialists, but powerful forces that US global state terror war is designed to coopt or crush - but has not been able to.

The Palestinians have waged a heroic national liberation war for over 60 years against the genocidal zionist-imperialist war and been a worldwide inspiration The "Palestinian-Israeli problem" is the major obstacle to US regional and global imperialist 'security' aka supremacy.
Palestinian deep national liberation aspirations are suppressed by the treachery of their USraeli agent PA/PLO 'leaders' (see below), and help from USAID/ Soros PNGO run NGOs. '
Groundwork has been laid for a final solution to Palestine's struggle, including installation days before Obama's arrival of a new openly ultra-nationlist-led USsraeli regime ready to 'update the US peace process' (See below).

US bogus neoliberal 'opposition serves US imperialism by blaming AIPAC the israeli PR lobby and pretending that US world-dominator isn't zionist, that imperialism birthed zionism when Britain ruled the world and that imperialism-zionism are indivisible.

President Barack Obama, the Democrat starting his second term, and his Republican opponents in Congress are locked in a long-running standoff over government spending and tax issues. Just last Friday, $85 billion in mandated government spending cuts took effect, with Obama and Republican lawmakers now sparring over the effects of the cuts on the economy and the U.S. labor market. But James Glassman, senior economist at the big JPMorgan Chase bank, said investors see favorable trends in the U.S. economy, the world's largest....
Patrick Socci, dean of N.Y. Hofstra University business school, told VOA the fact the U.S. housing market has improved and the country's central bank, the Federal Reserve, continues to pump $40 billion a month into the economy, helped buoy the stock market..and investors are overlooking negative aspects of the U.S. economy...now we’re close to 8 percent and it’s been there for quite a while I think people just get numb to it,” Socci said. The Dow index includes some of the best known U.S. companies, such household names as the world's largest energy company, Exxon Mobil, the retailing giant Wal-Mart, and Walt Disney. While other broad-based U.S. indexes, such as the Standard & Poor's 500, include the stocks of many more companies, the Dow has over decades come to symbolize the long-term success of American capitalism.

A secret legal review on the use of America's growing arsenal of cyberweapons concluded President Obama has the broad power to order a pre-emptive strike if the United States detects evidence of a major digital attack looming from abroad...as the administration moves, in the next few weeks, to approve the nation's first rules for how the military can defend, or retaliate, against cyberattack...will also govern how intelligence agencies can carry out searches of faraway computer networks for signs of potential attacks on the US and, if the president approves, attack adversaries by injecting them with destructive code - even with no declared war. The rules will be highly classified, just as those governing drone strikes have been. John O. Brennan, Mr. Obama's chief counterterrorism adviser and nominee to run the CIA, played a central role in developing the administration's policies regarding drones and cyberwarfare....US Cyber Command (CYBERCOM) and computer network warfare is one of the few parts of the military budget expected to grow...Officials said the new cyberpolicies were guided by a decade of evolution in counterterrorism policy, particularly on the division of authority between the military and the intelligence agencies in deploying cyberweapons

JERUSALEM — Israeli warplanes carried out a strike deep inside Syrian territory on Wednesday, American officials reported, saying they believed the target was a convoy carrying sophisticated antiaircraft weaponry on the outskirts of Damascus that was intended for the Hezbollah Shiite militia in Lebanon.The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Israelis had notified the Americans about the attack...Jerusalem has long maintained a policy of silence on pre-emptive military strikes....The Syrian statement, carried by state television, said an unidentified number of Israeli jets flying below radar had hit the scientific research facility in the Damascus suburbs, killing two people and causing “huge material damage.”...
Israel’s air force chief, Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, speaking at an international space conference in Israel, said Tuesday that Syria was a prime example of “the weakening governance in neighboring countries that heralds greater exposure to hostile activity. We work every day in order to lessen the immediate threats, to create better conditions so that we will be victorious in future wars. This is a struggle in which the Air Force is a central player, from here to thousands of kilometers away.”[...]
