    Gazprom closes on South Stream goal
    By Margarita Assenova

    Russia is moving rapidly to start building the South Stream natural gas pipeline before the end of the year. On October 29, Serbia became the first Gazprom partner to announce its final investment decision on the construction of South Stream. Bulgaria will follow suit on November 9; Hungary and Slovenia are expected to adopt similar decisions by November 15.

    The flurry of activities on finalizing South Stream investment agreements with a number of Central and Eastern European countries will permit Gazprom to start construction soon.

    After Turkey signed a deal in December 2011 to let Russia run the pipeline through Turkish territorial waters in the Black Sea, the Kremlin seems to be getting closer to achieving two major political goals: bypassing Ukraine in future Russian gas supplies to Europe


    and getting ahead of the Nabucco project (or any modification of it) designed to transport Caspian gas via Turkey. ***"

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    That's one of the biggest story of the past two or three decades and it will not receive much notice except by Dick Cheney, Bill Clinton, the oil and gas fraternity, and a few cognoscenti, real and imagined.


    Anyway,
    as that character in Looney Tunes used to cackle:
    "That's all, folks."

    And seen through a glass, darkly, is a predictor in the form of a news squib published by Democracy Now on November 2---



    "Citing Climate Change Stance, Bloomberg Endorses Obama

    "***
    On Thursday, Obama picked up an endorsement from former Republican and now independent New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. In an op-ed article, Bloomberg wrote that Obama is best equipped to tackle climate change in light of the "devastation that Hurricane Sandy brought to New York City and much of the north-east." Bloomberg also cited Obama’s support for abortion rights and same-sex marriage***"

    ===================================================================================

    The major question from the start has been whether Jstreet Obama or AIPAC Romney would win
    and that is true because
    Israel and the Establishment are the winners, whichever candidate wins.

    It now looks like Obama and JStreet are winning
    for Bloomberg and AIPAC and the two now have joined JStreet by tilting to Obama

    SHOCKLEY
