Earlier this week, Robert Baer appeared on the provocative KPFK Los Angeles show Background Briefing, hosted by Ian Masters. It was there that he predicted that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is likely to ignite a war with Iran in the very near future. &#8230; He obviously won&#8217;t name many of [...]<div class='yarpp-related-rss yarpp-related-none'> No related posts. <img src='http://yarpp.org/pixels/03117ff9d86fed71635ec6678848aba1'/> </div><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://www.yankeesage.us/feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ChrisVanAvery--Posts?a=S--aZqC4EqA:nEVzAXKnaDI:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ChrisVanAvery--Posts?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ChrisVanAvery--Posts/~4/S--aZqC4EqA" height="1" width="1"/> http://www.yankeesage.us/2011/07/18/talking-up-an-israel-iran-war-again/feed/ 0 http://www.yankeesage.us/2011/07/18/talking-up-an-israel-iran-war-again/ “That Time” Bleeds into “This Time” http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/ChrisVanAvery--Posts/~3/qkgtOgccCMo/ http://www.yankeesage.us/2011/07/12/that-time-bleeds-into-this-time/#comments Tue, 12 Jul 2011 22:52:03 +0000 Chris van Avery http://www.yankeesage.us/?p=2483 So, the course was over about three weeks ago, but the workload hasn&#8217;t let up.
