The Tragic Death of a Night Porter

In fact, Dariusz Ratajczak’s troubles began with the publication of his booklet, “Dangerous Topics,” in March, 1999. The treatise was self-published and limited to only 320 copies, but gave credence to the old maxim that the ‘pen is mightier than the sword. Ratajczak’s essay provoked a firestorm of criticism among his contemporaries. In the month following the book’s publication, a rather surprised Ratajczak was summoned to the editorial offices of the Gazeta Wyborcza, a leading Polish newspaper, where he was sneeringly told, “We’ll trample you into the ground for the little book, and the little sub-chapter on the Holocaust.”

Obama’s Middle East Moment of Truth

The new Middle Eastern diplomatic detente leaves Obama only one way forward. If he wants to succeed, he will have to make it clear to the far-right Israeli government that it must stop settlements, return to its 1967 borders and accept a viable, contiguous Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

ZIONISM’S ‘RIGHTS’ OR WRONGS

re: Ms Glick’s stating: ‘Zionism after all is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people. To say that Jews – uniquely among all the nations – have no right to freedom and self-determination is obviously anti-Semitic.’

First off, this infers that Jews cannot be ‘free’, nor enjoy ‘self determination’ in countries other than Israel, which judging by their great success and pre-eminence in the US and in many other countries wherein they reside, is near to nonsense.

Unique to Zionism’s notion of the Jewish State is the claim that Israel belongs, and is home to, ALL Jews worldwide, no matter where they reside and regardless their citizen status elsewhere.

No other modern nation state is comprised on grounds of such specific ethnocentrism.

In memory of 9/11 victims, church to burn Qurans

New York, Jul 31: A US church has sparked off a huge controversy by mulling an 'International Burn a Quran Day' to observe the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attack.

The Dove World Outreach Centre in Gainesville, Florida, will be hosting the event to remember the victims of the Sep 9, 2001 attack and has extended a invitation to all the Christians to burn the Muslim holy book at its premises from 6 pm to 9 pm.

Ah... the religion of Peace and Love strikes again.

Flashback: Osama Is Under Your Bed

In the days leading up to the mandated Congressional debate regarding said legislation, terror warnings suddenly bloom like nightshade. The White House or the FBI or the CIA, or all three in concert, ratchet up the national tension level with forecasts of doom and death and fire from unknown quarters. Said legislation passes without so much as leaving a wake in its path, nothing explodes, and everyone goes on with their lives in the belief that they just narrowly dodged a bullet. At the conclusion of the process, the foundations of American freedom have been redacted, edited, clipped and round-filed.

“HUGE discrepancies”: 1.8 million gallons of dispersant “now in question”, “Either BP was lying to Congress or to the Coast Guard”

For example, in one approval request, one of BP’s top executives, Doug Suttles, claimed that the maximum daily application of dispersants on the surface in the days preceding June 16, 2010 was 3,360 gallons on June 12. However, an examination of the dispersant totals BP provided to congressional staff in its daily “Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Response Updates” indicates that on June 11, BP said it applied 14,305 gallons of the chemical on the surface; on June 13, 36,000 gallons; and on June 14, 10,706 gallons.

According to publicly disclosed amounts on DeepwaterHorizonResponse.com, more than 1.8 million gallons of toxic dispersants were used to break up the oil as it came out of the well, as well as after it reached the ocean surface. The validity of those numbers are now in question.

Oliver Stone Apologizes for the Truth

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A lot of people are whining that Oliver Stone should have shown more personal courage and stood his ground regarding his original statements about Jewish control of the media. But the more I think about it, the more I have come to understand that Oliver Stone outsmarted the Israeli shills in Hollywood. When Haim Saban demanded that CBS/Showtime cancel Stone's series unless Stone apologized, he walked into Stone's trap, because in giving Haim Saban that apology, Stone communicated to the world the truth of his claims; that Israel's supporters do maintain an iron-fisted tyranny over the corporate media in this country. Had Stone fought back, Israel would scream anti-Semitism and play victim once more, in Panavision. By apologizing, Oliver Stone turned the tables. Now he is seen as the victim, and Haim Saba is the modern incarnation of Joseph McCarthy.

Game, set, and match to Oliver Stone.

US boosts Israeli missile funding

US House appropriators have pushed funding for Israeli missile defense programs to its highest level ever, with $422.7 million now slated for 2011.

Last week, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense added $95.7m. to the original White House funding request for the long-range Arrow programs and medium-range David’s Sling, according to sources close to the panel. The lion’s share – $108.8m. – will go to the Arrow 3 system, which the US signed off on after some initial hesitation.

n addition, the monies include $205m. pledged this spring by US President Barack Obama to the short-range Iron Dome project.

The package is more than twice as much as last year’s total, and adds up to nearly $1 billion in aid to joint US-Israel missile defense programs in the past four years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With an economy in meltdown, two failed wars grinding on, US infrastructure crumbling, and homeless Vets sleeping on our streets, this is the highest and best use Congress sees for our tax dollars, more weapons for Israel?!?

Every single Congressperson supporting this must be handed their hats and show the door in this next election, period end of discussion!!

Al-Qaeda Creating an Army in Yemen

he heads of Al-Qaeda in Yemen claimed Thursday to be creating an army in the country's south. In an audio recording posted online, terrorist commander Mohammed Sayeed al-Omda said Al-Qaeda will soon have a fighting force of 12,000 soldiers based in the cities of Aden and Abyan.

Omda issued a threat to continue attacking Yemeni troops. “This is a message to the Yemeni government forces and National security service: Our swords are ready and we are going to cleanse the land,” he declared.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me get my head around this.

The government of Yemen, headed by "President" (apparently, for life) Ali Saleh. This government is characterized by impartial observers as being one of the most hideously corrupt governments in the region, with rampant poverty, illiteracy, no infrastructure, and zero transparency in its government.

This deadly "cocktail" of circumstances makes violent radicalization look attractive to some.

Yet, the US government has supported this thug unequivocally; and by the way, here is actually what your tax payer dollars to Yemen have paid for. As reported in:

http://armiesofliberation.com/archives/2010/07/30/unhappy-us-congress-finds-us-mil-aid-diverted-to-the-genocide-in-saada-yemen/

"The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has asserted that tens of millions of dollars in U.S. military and security assistance was diverted from the war against Al Qaida to Yemen’s campaign against the Iranian-backed Shi’ite rebels, called Houthis, in the north. The committee reported discrepancies between records of U.S. security assistance and those in the Yemeni military."

"The need for monitoring has become acute amid a significant increase in U.S. military aid to Yemen. Washington has approved more than $150 million in military and security aid for 2010 as the Pentagon oversaw an offensive against Al Qaida."

So, instead of attempting to fix the infrastructure, economy, and literacy in Yemen, what has President Selah chosen to do with our money?!? It apparently has been spent on a genocide against his own people.

When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable; but somehow, the US State Department, Pentagon, and White House are consistently, pathologically incapable of grasping this fact, as demonstrated by the thugs they continue to support in the name of "regional stability".

The Real Aim of Israel’s Bomb Iran Campaign

The idea of waging a U.S. war of destruction against Iran is obvious lunacy, which is why U.S. military leaders have strongly resisted it both during the Bush and Obama administrations.

US Support for Israel Near All-Time High

Speaking Saturday night, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that he welcomed the support of the American public, as expressed in a Gallup poll released Friday. The poll showed that US support of Israel is at a near all-time high; 67 percent of Americans held a favorable opinion of Israel, more than for nearly any other country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder precisely what slender demographic the Gallop group polled in order to predetermine the outcome here.

Most thinking people I know, particularly after one American was shot while lying helpless on the deck of an aid ship in Israel's flotilla massacre, are highly concerned about how Israel is and has been treating the Palestinians; the siege of Gaza; and the brisk annexation of Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Also, most thinking people I know are concerned by the fact that Israel is a nuclear armed power which refuses to sign the NNPT.

They are also alarmed at the degree to which the US and Israel are militarily coordinated, at the highest level.

They are also alarmed at the degree of Israeli influence over the US Congress.

They understand that Israel was a tremendous "cheerleader" for the US war against Iraq, another of its alleged "existential threats" in the region; they understand that the war against Iraq was based on a pack of lies, as will be the impending war against Iran.

Thinking Americans cannot support Israel, because it has become a danger to the Middle East, and a danger to the survival of the US itself.

Greenspan: Modest economic recovery 'in a pause'

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan says he thinks the economy is having a modest recovery, but right now there's a "pause" in that recovery, so it feels like a "quasi-recession."

Greenspan says long-term unemployment is pulling the economy apart even though large banks are doing much better and large companies are in excellent shape.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Pause", my astrolabe!

It is obvious that this gentleman in is a world of his own which has absolutely nothing to do with working Americans.

This country is in a recession, period, end of discussion, and any attempt to mischaracterize the US's current economic woes as anything else is like putting lipstick on a pig.

The “Summer Camp Of Destruction:” Israeli High Schoolers Assist The Razing Of A Bedouin Town

I traveled to al-Arakib yesterday with a delegation from Ta’ayush, an Israeli group that promotes a joint Arab-Jewish struggle against the occupation. The activists spent the day preparing games and activities for the village’s traumatized children, helping the villagers replace their uprooted olive groves, and assisting in the reconstruction of their demolished homes. In a massive makeshift tent where many of al-Arakib’s residents now sleep, I interviewed village leaders about the identity of the cheering civilians. Each one confirmed the presence of the civilians, describing how they celebrated the demolitions. As I compiled details, the story grew increasingly horrific.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome for the "new normal" for Arab Bedouins!

The Real Reasons Why the US and India Demonize Pakistan's ISI

It has often been argued that America expects Pakistan to be actively engaged in the Afghan war in return for the military assistance it provides. The answer is quite simple. The American establishment is doing all that needs to be done in support of its own war and not for the love of Pakistan. The war is theirs, not Pakistan’s. Pakistan should do and is doing what is necessary and feasible, without jeopardizing its own security.

As for the assistance, bulk of the $10 billion that America gave in the past and was branded as "aid" was in fact the reimbursement of expenses that Pakistan had already incurred in supporting the war effort.

Timing of National Guard's Deployment to Southwest Border Stirs Confusion, Anger

President Obama announced in May he would send National Guard troops amid growing concerns about border violence stemming from illegal immigration and drug smuggling. Many called for a military presence along the U.S-Mexico border to assist border patrol agents as Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a controversial law making illegal immigration a state crime -- a policy that a judge weakened this week in federal court.

Earlier this month, the Department of Homeland Security said the troops would be sent Aug. 1. But now both the National Guard Bureau and the Customs Border Protection says that date was when they were directed to start ramping up their numbers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no "confusion" to be found here, although the anger is completely understandable.

The Federal government, which refuses to take the necessary steps to control illegal immigration (because Congress' campaign contributors love cheap illegal labor) is cynically timing this deployment closer to the election, so that they can appear to have "done something" on the issue.

Unfortunately, the deployment of just 1200 National Guard members is merely cosmetic, and cannot really solve the problem here, because there is no real will in Washington to solve it.

Chelsea's Wedding: Let Let Them Eat Cake

Before we attend to the poor political judgment of such an extravagant affair during times of economic distress, let us wonder aloud where a poor boy who became governor of Arkansas and president of the United States got such a fortune that he can blow $3,000,000 on a wedding.

The American people did not take up a collection to reward him for his service to them.

Where did the money come from? Who was he really serving during his eight years in office?

How did Tony Blair and his wife, Cherrie, end up with an annual income of ten million pounds (approximately $15 million dollars) as soon as he left office? Who was Blair really serving?

These are not polite questions, and they are infrequently asked.

Iran Encircled: Two US Congressional Resolutions, One World War

We have our target and we now have our army.

We are now witnessing the legalization and industrialization of another war, one which will set the entire region ablaze.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The twin gorillas, sitting on the Steinway in the living room, which no one in the US government wants to talk about, are Russia and China.

One has to wonder what these two countries will do if the US and/or Israel attacks Iran.

And the further complication to a potential "win" against Iran is the reality that the US has literally outsourced almost all of its manufacturing infrastructure, which is absolutely critical to winning a war which goes for any length of time.

Banksters are Coming for Your Retirement Next

The international banks’ economic hit men have successfully enslaved-by-debt everything from nations, entire industries, state and local governments (who will need their bailout soon), and nearly every person on the planet. Even if an individual doesn't have any bank financing or credit cards, they still pay the private Federal Reserve through inflation. As author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins, would say: the time has come for the banks to collect their “pound of flesh” from average citizens by way of your pensions.

Debt is devouring Sovereign Nations. In the US, the Deficit is being Funded and Monetized by the Fed

What Washington, the Fed and Wall Street have to understand is that you cannot borrow your way to wealth. There is an eventual law of diminishing returns. Present prosperity cannot be paid for by future production and services. The public senses this and their confidence continues to dissipate. Seventy percent believe there will be no recovery. They are angry and want to purge congress and the Senate of the criminals they previously elected. This is a reflection in part of unemployment of 22-3/8%, falling hours and wages and perpetual loss of purchasing power.

Greece will be a war zone, Sect of Revolutionaries warns tourists

"Greece has entered a new phase of political violence by anarchist-oriented organisations that are more murderous, dangerous, capable and nihilistic than ever before," said Athanasios Drougos, a defence and counter-terrorism analyst in Athens.

The threats came from a guerrilla group called the Sect of Revolutionaries, as it claimed credit for the murder of Sokratis Giolas, an investigative journalist. Giolas was shot dead outside his Athenian home on 19 July, in front of his pregnant wife.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Gulf Loop Current Stalls from BP Oil Disaster

Oceanographic satellite data now shows that the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico has stalled as a consequence of the BP oil spill [volcano] disaster. This according to Dr. Gianluigi Zangari, an Italian theoretical physicist, and major complex and chaotic systems analyst at the Frascati National Laboratories in Italy.

He further notes that the effects of this stall have also begun to spread to the Gulf Stream. This is because the Loop Current is a crucial element of the Gulf Stream itself and why it is commonly referred to as the “main engine” of the Stream.

A Police State You'd Better Believe In

When our nation is waging "war on" so many things (drugs, crime, poverty, terrorism), it's hard to know where to enlist and when to defect. Or put another way, when should a patriot oppose his government? One answer, which we may hope is obvious, is when his government is waging war on liberty. The trick, of course, is to recognize it as such, since the government will always claim to be defending liberty when waging war against it.

Military keeps distressed soldiers at combat site

Sgt. Thomas Riordan didn't want to return to Afghanistan after home leave. He had just fought through a battle that killed eight soldiers, and when he arrived home his wife said she was leaving. He almost killed himself that night.

When his psychologist asked what he thought he should do, Riordan said: Stay in Colorado.

Instead, the military brought Riordan back to this base in the eastern Afghan mountains, where mortar rounds sound regularly and soldiers have to wear flack jackets if they step outside their barracks before 8 a.m., even to go to the bathroom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We didn't have a great deal of this kind of stress syndrome going on in our military during World War II, because the men and women in uniform understood, very clearly, that the US was on the right side of history.

However,many in today's military, serving in Afghanistan understand that in the prosecution of this war does not put the US on the right side of history.

This is a war about potential private profit from oil pipelines, drugs, and minerals.

That is what every maiming, physical or psychological, or death of every American soldier has been about in this horrendous, slow-dance slaughter.

The Tribunal Conspiracy

It seems only logical that Israel would try to nail the Lebanese group through the Hariri affair, hoping that this would shatter the current alliance between Hezbollah and Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the second son of Rafik, along with creating havoc between Lebanese Sunnis and Shiites, notes Sami Moubayed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Short version. When Mossad whacked Hariri, Israel led the campaign to blame Syria for the assassination, to force Syria and their military support out of Lebanon, setting the stage for the failed 2006 invasion of Lebanon by Israel. Now, Israel is pointing the finger at Hezbollah for the murder, to try and again weaken Lebanon in advance of a new invasion.

Greece orders military to step in as truckers vote to continue strike

The Greek government ordered the country's armed forces to help deliver fuel as truck drivers voted to continue a contentious strike, state media reported.

Officials said Friday that military vehicles would be used to ensure the supply of fuel to airports, power plants and hospitals, and navy boats could help carry tanker trucks to islands, according to official news agency ANA.

Greece's 33,000 licensed truck drivers went on strike this week to protest government plans to open up their industry and issue new licenses.

The government is required to make the changes under the terms of loan packages from the European Union and International Monetary Fund.

The only reason that part of the world is unstable is Israel and the US won't mind their own business!

TARGETED KILLINGS IS NEW U.S. FOCUS IN AFGHANISTAN

When President Obama announced his new war plan for Afghanistan last year, the centerpiece of the strategy — and a big part of the rationale for sending 30,000 additional troops — was to safeguard the Afghan people, provide them with a competent government and win their allegiance.

Eight months later, that counterinsurgency strategy has shown little success, as demonstrated by the flagging military and civilian operations in Marja and Kandahar and the spread of Taliban influence in other areas of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nine years on, the only way out will be through a negotiated settlement in Afghanistan.

At that point, the US will need to negotiate with whatever government is left in Kabul for the oil pipeline and mineral rights, which puts the US squarely where it was in August of 2001, when the Bush administration thought that the price being demanded by the Taliban was "too high", and that somehow, a war - and the cost in blood and money - would be "cheaper".

US military chief admits to Iran attack plan

Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said military action against Iran could have "unintended consequences that are difficult to predict in what is an incredibly unstable part of the world."

But, speaking on Sunday's "Meet the Press" program on NBC, Mullen said allowing Iran to develop a nuclear weapon was also unacceptable.

"Quite frankly, I am extremely concerned about both of those outcomes," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Exhausted and Exasperated Memo to Admiral Mullen:

Iran is a signatory to the NNPT. All of their nuclear work, dedicated to developing a power plant, with technical assistance from Russia, is done under the supervision of the IAEA. To date, no nuclear material has been unaccounted for, nor has Iran been enriching uranium above the 20% level necessary for the creation of nuclear isotopes. To enrich to weapons level uranium takes 90% or better enrichment.

However, Admiral Mullen, Israel, which has nuclear bombs, refuses to sign the NNPT, or allow its nuclear sites to be inspected.

Sir, I submit that the only reason that the US is set to go to war against Iran is that Israel has ordered the US to do this. And again, just as was the case with Iraq, it will be American kids who will fight, get maimed for life, and die to neutralize yet another of Israel's alleged "existential threats" in the region.

US 'refutes' July death toll in Iraq

The US military on Sunday took the unusual step of refuting Iraqi figures released a day earlier which showed July was the single deadliest month in the war-torn country since May 2008.

The American decision to release their own toll came after the Iraqi figures showed a sharp upswing in the level of violence nearly five months after parliamentary elections which have yet to result in the formation of a new government and as the United States carries out a major troop withdrawal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We know when the US military spokespeople lie to the American people: they open their mouths, and words come out of them.

At this point, after all the lies of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, I would almost be willing to accept the Iraqi figures over and above the US's figures on this.

BP, Coast Guard ignored order to stop using dispersants: report

BP continued spraying large amounts of a controversial dispersant onto the surface of the Gulf of Mexico even after an EPA order to stop doing so, the Washington Post reports.

According to the Post, BP used a loophole in the EPA's order that allowed the Coast Guard to rubber-stamp "exemptions" to the order.

US to activate missile shield over southern Europe: report

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although this is not sourced, looking at a map, it is clear to see that the Pentagon is not thinking about Iran in terms of this missile shield placement, but Russia.

Dangerous Conspiracy Theories

We are a threat if we start to come together. The ideas that bind us all here in the alternative media are exactly the sort of thinking that must be eliminated. The path to either victory or defeat for the anti-Empire side, just as it is for the bad guys, lies in changing the thinking of the people. The bad guys are intent on erasing the polluting ideas of freedom, liberation and individualism from the human lexicon, replacing all of these cherished concepts with ideas of hopelessness, terror and submission.

"The Real Terrorist Was Me" Speech By War Veteran

Our real enemies are not those living in a distant land whose names or policies we don't understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it's profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it's profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it's profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us

The New Draft: Bringing Back Slavery to America

Most of the crooks and liars who form the political class today aren’t old enough to remember them, but there must be some institutional nostalgia for the days when America fielded vast armies of conscripts in a global struggle against tyranny. Congress must feel like fighting terrorism with a mere handful of volunteers is for military pikers. Iraq isn’t the kind of war that molds politicians into “great men.” And naturally, all politicians view themselves as great men.

What you need for real war, for firebombing cities, human wave attacks, and concentration camps—is to enslave pretty much everyone. You just can’t find enough volunteers for that kind of work.

Constitutional jurisdiction and Arizona's right for self-defense

Explosive new evidence shows ruling of AZ judge illegal
July 31, 10:07 AM Conservative Examiner Anthony G. Martin
From Article I, Section 10 of the U.S. Constitution, we find these words: "No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay."
This, when coupled with the clear Constitutional mandate that only the Supreme Court hear cases involving the states, should be ample legal basis for attorneys representing Arizona to go after the federal government with a vengeance.

Israel Classifies its Past as Top Secret

In the interim things have only gotten worse for the Zionist defenders of the idealized Israel. Multiple invasions of Lebanon and the essentially defenseless Palestinian cities and towns, the slaughter of the innocent, the reduction of Gaza to an open air prison, the on-going confiscation of land and property in the Occupied Territories, rampant settler violence, and the repeated election of racist governments have resulted in a worldwide civil society effort to isolate Israel and induce it to reform itself in the same manner as South Africa.

Seminar with Palestinian Members of the Israeli Knesset

Miss Zoubi stated that the shift of the Israeli administration to the far right means that the state is now more willing to sacrifice its democratic image than to give Palestinians equality and freedom. The new demand for the state to be recognised by citizens as “Jewish and democratic” has become an obsession; Arabs are required to swear allegiance to a state that strips them of everything and discriminates against them.

Obama warns Abbas against failure to resume direct talks

US President Barack Obama has warned Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas that failure to resume direct peace talks with Israel could undermine US-Palestinian ties, Palestinian officials said on Saturday.

Obama made the warning in a letter to Abbas but also pledged to rally Arab, European and Russian support for the Palestinians if direct negotiations resume, a Palestinian official told AFP speaking on condition of anonymity.

Bomb Iran?

Even though Israel has increasingly been regarded around the world as a rogue state after its Gaza atrocities and the commando killings of unarmed civilians on board the Mavi Marmara, its grip on the U.S. Congress appears as strong as ever.

Moreover, polling data for 2010 show that a majority of Americans have already been manipulated into supporting war against Iran – in large part because more than two-thirds of those polled have gotten the impression that Iran already has nuclear weapons. The Israelis are apparently hoping to exploit that advantage. “If the Israelis bomb now, American public opinion will probably be with them,” writes Gerecht. “Perhaps decisively so.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The stranglehold of Israel over the US Congress has to be broken, if this nation is ever to survive.

And from where did this Reuel Gerecht get the polling data indicating that "...more than two-thirds of those polled have gotten the impression that Iran already has nuclear weapons."?!?!?

Note that this number is never sourced, just stated as fact.

One has to wonder if the pollsters were polling the criminally insane, or if the pollsters polled a specifically narrow demographic in order to accomplish that outcome.

Israel’s Insane War on Iran Must Be Prevented.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US, acting as Israel's pathological enabler, will not stop this coming war.

The US will simply either support Israel in this war effort, or lead the strike itself, so that, once again, it will be American kids fighting, getting maimed for life, and dying to neutralize yet another one of Israel's alleged "existential threats."

Obama and his administration desperately need "the mother of all distractions" right before the November elections; an attack against Iran may well be how they are figuring to do this, in spite of the fact that this war could go well beyond regional to global, and the US and/or Israel may well not win.

Israel Threatens Lebanon

It is most unfortunate though, that the real threat facing Lebanon—one that pales in comparison to what may or may not happen after the STL’s indictments are issued—will go unaddressed.

Indeed, Israel is doing its best to goad, prod and provoke Hezbollah into firing that one rocket that can be used as pretext to wage all-out war and avenge their July 2006 invasion disaster:

Israel ’s designs on Lebanon ’s offshore gas reserves and the prospect of using force to secure them has been recently discussed, as has evidence suggesting their involvement in the Hariri assassination.

Unfortunately it is not a question of if Israel is going back into Lebanon; it is only a question of when.

Chavez deploys military units in Colombia row

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Friday said he deployed military units to repel a possible attack after Colombia claimed last week his country harbored leftist rebels, but said he hoped to mend ties soon.

Chavez severed relations with U.S. ally Colombia last week over Bogota's charges his oil exporting country allowed Colombian guerrillas to stay in camps.

He has since said Colombia was preparing a military attack. Colombia denies the charge, and most analysts say a war between the countries is very unlikely.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not Columbia which wants a war with which to oust Hugo Chavez; it is the US which would like to see a war here to accomplish that end.

As reported on 6 July 2010 at:

"Costa Rica has granted the U.S. military a six-month window to bring 7,000 Marines, five planes and 46 warships into its territory to help stem the flow of drugs northward."

The alleged purpose for this expeditionary-sized force is drug interdiction; but I would suggest that there something beyond drug interdiction at work here. The timing of the stationing of these troops and this equipment, through January of next year, seems to have coincided rather nicely with the worsening relations between Columbia and Venezuela.

Stance on Israel an issue in US Senate polls

An ugly battle has erupted in Pennsylvania, where competing interests have fought over the positions on Israel of two Senate hopefuls.

A group called the Emergency Committee for Israel, which includes prominent neoconservative figures such as William Kristol, a commentator and founder of the Weekly Standard political magazine, and Gary Bauer, a politician with close ties to evangelical Christian groups, has emerged on one side of the divide.

It ran local television ads attacking Joe Sestak, the Democratic candidate, pointing out that he had signed a letter with 53 other members of Congress accusing Israel of “collective punishment” in Gaza. Pat Toomey, his Republican opponent, has made Mr Sestak’s questioning of Israeli policies a key issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any Congressional representative who does not put the interests of We the People first, second and third needs to be shown the door and handed their hats in this next election.

We can no longer tolerate Congressional representatives putting the interests of any foreign government ahead of those of the people of the United States, period, end of discussion.

Iran `Hiding Truth' About Nuclear Work, Will Be on G-8 Agenda, Cannon Says

Canada’s foreign minister, Lawrence Cannon, said Iran is “hiding” the truth about its nuclear program and added Group of Eight officials will review the effectiveness of new sanctions when they next meet in September.

Cannon, who presides over meetings of G-8 foreign ministers this year, led a March summit where he helped push for sanctions against Iran that were imposed this week by Canada and the European Union, and earlier by the U.S. Iran has denied allegations from the U.S. and some of its allies that the nuclear program may be intended for weapons development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Canadian Foreign Minister Cannon:

1. Iran is a signatory to the NNPT.

2. Iran is building a power plant, with Russian technical assistance.

3. Iran's nuclear program has been completely under the inspection of the UN's IAEA.

4. To date, no nuclear material has been found to be missing, nor has any Iranian nuclear material been found to have been enriched beyond 20%, necessary for medical isotopes.

5. Israel, which has nuclear weapons, refuses to sign the NNPT, and refuses any inspection of its nuclear sites.

We may well be looking at a whole new meaning to the term "October Surprise", come this fall.

Israel is desperate for a distraction from the flotilla massacre, and Obama is desperate for any distraction from a failing economy, two wars going miserably, and domestic and foreign policies which have come close to destroying this country.

Sanctions Give China an Advantage in Iran

The European Union’s new sanctions against Iran appear to open a new space for eager Chinese companies to expand their investments in a country viewed as a rogue player by much of the western world.

An energy-thirsty China has signed agreements with Iran worth tens of billions of dollars to allow it privileged access to Iran’s oil and gas sector. Courting the partnership of Iran, which possesses the world’s fourth largest reserves of oil and second largest of gas, has been a long and arduous process, and Beijing would loathe to jeopardize it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, if the US and Israel attack Iran for its non-existent nuclear weapons program, does that mean that they will be fighting China as well, which is a nuclear armed country?!?
