  2. 2. Editorial NEXUS MAGAZINE Volume 15, Number 5 AUGUST – SEPTEMBER 2008 W elcome to the first of our next-generation NEXUS issues! "Whats new?" you may ask as you flip through the familiar layouts in this edition. Well, we have a new-style front cover—and larger type! It had reached the point PUBLISHED BY where even I had trouble reading the print, so weve increased the font size fromNEXUS Magazine Pty Ltd, ABN 80 003 611 434 9.75 to 11 point. I apologise to all our long-suffering readers who kept EDITOR suggesting for years that we make this change. Duncan M. Roads As usual, we have some very interesting articles and tidbits in this edition, CO-EDITOR starting with an intriguing article on what might be behind the anti-Iran agenda Catherine Simons being run by the USA, Israel and some other western powers. ASSISTANT EDITOR/SUB-EDITOR Global News has some great items, including the announcement by the Ruth Parnell International Energy Agency that Russia now produces more oil than Saudi OFFICE ADMIN/EDITORS ASSISTANTS Arabia and that it has plenty more. This is significant because Russian Jenny Hawke; Susie Foster scientists use the "abiotic origin of oil" theory to locate significant resource MAIL ORDER DEPARTMENT deposits, which suggests that oil is not a fossil fuel in any way, shape or form. Richard Giles; Susie Foster Abiotic theory suggests that oil is a by-product of certain types of bacteria that CONTRIBUTORS THIS ISSUE live in specific temperature and pressure conditions in the Earths crust, Michel Chossudovsky, PhD; Benjamin Fulford particularly the newest parts. and Project Camelot; Alan Cantwell, MD; Barry Carter; Dr Valery Uvarov; Meanwhile, the mainstream theory still holds that oil is formed as the result of Philip Hardcastle; Tony Bushby; millions of dinosaurs and prehistoric plants all suddenly being thrown together Roger Leir, DPM; Robert D. Morningstar and then covered by mud or dirt so that oxygen cant escape. It really is a very CARTOONS silly concept when you stop and think about it. Phil Somerville Another very interesting concept is the idea that the Earth has a "twin" planet COVER GRAPHIC Jeff Edis, jeff_edis@hotmail.com that orbits the Sun on the same circuit as Earth, but always on the exact opposite PRINTING side of the Sun—meaning that we would never see it.

I think that going through life without this knowledge is a waste of time, and not passing it on to children is a crime. I can say with confidence that nothing like these books exists in the world today." -- Rafal F., Australia (from an unsolicited letter to NEXUS magazine Feb - March 2006) In 1994 a Siberian elder told the entrepreneur Vladimir Megre a fascinating story about the "ringing cedars" - trees respected from Biblical times for their curative powers and the capacity to re- connect human beings with the Divine. The elder told him where such a ringing cedar was growing in the Siberian backwoods. Vladimir Megre set out on an expedition to find the tree. But his encounter with the elders granddaughter Anastasia transformed him so deeply that he abandoned his commercial plans and, penniless, went to Moscow to write a book about what she shared with him. What happened next thrilled and inspired millions! With no advertisement other than word of mouth the Ringing Cedars Series has sold over 10 million copies in Russian alone and translated into 20 languages, it has made Vladimir Megre into one of Russias most widely read authors. These highly unusual books provide extraordinary insights into dozens of subjects - from natural child rearing to the production of high-energy, healing foods, from the meaning of human life to the amazing potential that awaits every one of us, extraterrestrial civilisations, from ancient megalithic science to the vital importance of breast-feeding, and from sacred sexuality to the hidden history of world religions.

  11. 11. I S THE W AR AGAINST I RAN ON H OLD ? ALL-OUT WAR OR "ECONOMIC CONQUEST"? T ehran is to allow foreign investors, in what might be interpreted as an overture to the West, to acquire full ownership of Irans state enterprises in the context of a far-reaching "free market"–style privatisation program. With the price of crude oil at 140 US dollars a barrel, the Iranian state is not in a financial straitjacket as is the case in most indebted developing countries, which are obliged by their creditors to sell their Is Irans asset state assets to pay off a mounting external debt. What are the political motivations behind this measure? And why now? privatisation policy Several western companies have already been approached. Tehran will allow foreign capital to purchase unlimited shares of state-run enterprises that are in a strategy to avoid the process of being sold off. While Irans privatisation program was launched during the government of military strikes by Mohammad Khatami in the late 1990s, the recent sell-off of shares in key state enterprises points to a new economic design. The underlying measure is far- the USA and Israel reaching. It goes beyond the prevailing privatisation framework applied in several developing countries within Americas sphere of influence. According or to freeze out to the Press TV website (30 June 2008): "The move is designed to attract greater foreign investment and is part of the American economic countrys sweeping economic liberalization program.

"Among the new incentive measures announced, foreign firms may also transfer their annual profit from their Iranian company out of the country in any currency they wish."1 It is important to analyse this decision carefully. The timing of this announcement by the Iranian Privatization Organization (IPO) coincides with mounting US–Israeli threats to wage an all-out war against Iran. Moreover, the divestment program is compliant with the demands of the "Washington Consensus". The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky confirmed, with some reservations, that Tehran is committed to a "continued © 4 July 2008 transition toward a viable and efficient market economy", while also implying Centre for Research on that the building of "investor confidence" requires an acceleration of the Globalization, Montreal, Canada privatisation program.2 In its May 2008 review (Article IV Consultation),3 the IMF praised Tehran for Web page: its divestment program, which essentially transfers the ownership of state assets http://www.globalresearch.ca/ into private hands, while also underscoring that the program was being carried index.php?context=va&aid=9501 out in a speedy and efficient fashion.
