THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"If there are those who think we are to jump immediately into a new world order, actuated by complete understanding and brotherly love, they are doomed to disappointment. If we are ever to approach that time, it will be after patient and persistent effort of long duration. The present international situation of mistrust and fear can only be corrected by a formula of equal status, continuously applied, to every phase of international contacts, until the cobwebs of the old order are brushed out of the minds of the people of all lands." -- Dr. Augustus O. Thomas, president of the World Federation of Education Associations, quoted in the book International Understanding: Agencies Educating for a New World

US General Warns Cuts Will Leave Britain Defenseless, Veterans Say Worse To Come

Did Al Qaeda Dupe Trump on Syrian Attack?

A new United Nations-sponsored report on the April 4 sarin incident in an Al Qaeda-controlled town in Syria blames Bashar al-Assad’s government for the atrocity, but the report contains evidence deep inside its “Annex II” that would prove Assad’s innocence.

If you read that far, you would find that more than 100 victims of sarin exposure were taken to several area hospitals before the alleged Syrian warplane could have struck the town of Khan Sheikhoun.

Still, the Joint Investigative Mechanism [JIM], a joint project of the U.N. and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons [OPCW], brushed aside this startling evidence and delivered the Assad guilty verdict that the United States and its allies wanted.

The ISIS-Daesh Killing Field: A Letter from Iraq – Grief, Forgiveness, and 20 Million Pilgrims

Families of the murdered youngsters silently exhibit photos of their sons and ask “international bodies to do something”. They all agree; the response from the “international community” has been shameful. Still, the Tikrit massacre committee vows to keep the memory of Speicher alive. Mothers of victims have been to Geneva to ask for help as well as mental health support for quite a few families, and plan to visit again in June 2018.

This has been one of Iraq’s most devastating nightmares of the past three decades. After such sorrow, what forgiveness?

Keep walking towards redemption

It’s possible. From agony to ecstasy. There could not be a more radical contrast between darkness and light than taking the road to Najaf – the Iraqi Vatican, and fourth holiest city in Islam – and Karbala, alongside millions of black-clad pilgrims during the annual celebration of Arba’een, the “40th Day” of the martyrdom of Imam Hussein.

Syria Slams US-Led Coalition Attacks Aimed at Derailing Army’s Victories

Syria expressed its strong condemnation of the war crimes committed by the international US-led coalition against innocent civilians in the country.

In a letter to the UN Secretary General and Head of the Security Council, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said that the international coalition’s feverish quest to derail the victories of the country’s army and its allies over ISIS terrorist group, whether through its air force and agents on the ground and the deals it makes with ISIS terrorists to attack positions of the Syrian army and its allies from sites where coalition forces are deployed confirms the suspicious role of the coalition and the danger it poses to the real efforts aimed at fighting ISIS.

The great data science hope: Machine learning can cure your terrible data hygiene

Will there ever be a technology that can fix decades of poor data hygiene? Probably not, but that isn't going to stop technology vendors from trying. The good news: Machine learning may come closest to saving your data management hide.

Data hygiene isn't easy. You can't hire enough interns to even come close to rectifying past mistakes. The reality is enterprises haven't been creating data dictionaries, meta data and clean information for years. Sure, this data hygiene effort may have improved a bit, but let's get real: Humans aren't up for the job and never have been. ZDNet's Andrew Brust put it succinctly: Humans aren't meticulous enough. And without clean data, a data scientist can't create algorithms or a model for analytics.

The Arctic Silk Road: A Huge Leap Forward for China and Russia

The Silk Road, renamed the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), is developing infrastructure along land and sea trade routes. However, little is known about China’s initiative in the Arctic Circle, which represents a new route that Beijing is now able to develop thanks to technology together with the strategic partnership with Russia.

Involving about 65 countries and affecting 4.4 billion people, constituting thirty percent of the world’s GDP, together with a total investment from Beijing that could surpass a trillion dollars, the is an immense project that requires a lot of imagination to grasp the intentions of the Chinese leadership. With a host of projects already in progress, and some almost completed (the Sino-Pakistan Corridor known as CPEC is archetypical), the overland and maritime routes are developing side by side.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish the government of the US was more interested in creating deals than in waging wars to get its geopolitical objectives met.

Amazon customer who ordered a new £2,400 laptop is stunned to open the package to find it had been replaced with a £20 MOP ‘by a bogus delivery man’

The parcel was not in an Amazon-branded box and didn't contain the invoice or any documentation.

The engineer said: "When I inspected the delivery address label, I could see that it had been tampered with. I think it had been peeled off the correct box, along with the tracking label, and placed onto the phony box that I received."

Aaron, of Wolverhampton, West Midlands, also had CCTV footage from outside his home which shows the apparent delivery man dropping off the parcel, without Amazon's recognisable logo on it.

Pat Caddell: Global Elites Want to ‘Manage’ the Country’s Decline

Caddell said the elites in the United States have bought into the idea that China is on the inevitable rise to global hegemony, replacing the U.S., and it is their job to manage that rise peacefully.

Brazile, Foster, and the Look Up Factor

When I tell people about the various cover-ups of major, appalling crimes that are currently going on around our once great country, the standard incredulous response is that too many people would all have to be engaged in an improbable conspiracy of silence for such alleged cover-ups ever to succeed. People who respond that way either just don’t know or don’t want to admit to themselves how pervasive in our society today is the kind of bureaucratic cowardice described so aptly and so courageously by Major Trujillo. It is not confined to the military, either, but, ironically, this particular spinelessness before corrupt authority does, as pointed out by former DEA agent Michael Levine in The Big White Lie, appear to be most prevalent in professions that require extraordinary physical courage.

It’s tough to say when our societal values shifted so dramatically, but for some reason now, government at large has decided that charity for the homeless is a crime.

This is a disturbing trend which has been gaining steam in recent years.

Congressional hearing on Jerusalem shuts out Palestinians

Palestinians need not apply.

The subcommittee on national security in the US House of Representatives hosted five witnesses on Wednesday to address the bombshell issue of moving the US embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

But not one of the witnesses was a Palestinian or spoke for Palestinian rights and interests.

The hearing indicates that conservative members of Congress are intent on upping the pressure on Donald Trump to relocate the embassy. Initiation of the move could come as soon as 1 December when the president will once again have to decide whether to sign a waiver delaying such a move for another six months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you wanted to know who owns the US Congress, just take a good, hard look at the list of people who were "allowed" to testify on moving the US Embassay from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and you will understand completely how this takeover on "alleged foreign policy" has been accomplished.

Army lifts ban on recruits with mental health history

People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year's goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.

Expanding the waivers for mental health is possible in part because the Army now has access to more medical information about each potential recruit, Lt. Col. Randy Taylor, an Army spokesman, said in a statement. The Army issued the ban on waivers in 2009 amid an epidemic of suicides among troops.

Jail, Drugs And Video Games: Why Millennial Men Are Disappearing From The Labor Force

Last week, Goldman Sachs pointed out a very disturbing trend in the US labor market: where the participation rate for women in the prime age group of 25-54 have seen a dramatic rebound in the past 2 years, such a move has been completeloy missing when it comes to their peer male workers. As Goldman's jan Hatzius put in in "A Divided Labor Market", "some of the workers who gave up and dropped out of the labor force during the recession and its aftermath still have not found their way back in." In fact, the labor force participation rate of prime-age (25-54 year-old) women has rebounded quite a bit and is now only moderately below pre-crisis levels, but the rate for prime-age men remains well below pre-crisis levels.

What Craziness Is Going on in Saudi Arabia?

But behind all this lies the stalemated Saudi war against wretched Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest, most backwards nation. Saudi Arabia has been heavily bombing Yemen for over two years, using US-supplied warplanes, munitions, including cluster bombs and white phosphorus, and US Air Force management. A Saudi blockade of Yemen, aided by the US, has caused mass starvation and epidemics such as cholera.

When I first explored Yemen, in the mid 1970’s, it was just creeping out of the 12th century AD. Today, it’s been bombed back into the 6th Century.

In spite of spending over $200 million daily (not including payoffs to `coalition’ members like Egypt) the Saudis are stuck in a stalemated conflict against Yemen’s Shia Houthi people. The US and Britain are cheerfully selling bombs and weapons to the Saudis. President Donald Trump has been lauding the destruction of Yemen because he mistakenly believes Iran is the mainstay of the anti-Saudi resistance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We could well be looking at a regional, if not a world war here, particularly if Russia intervenes on Iran's behalf, which should well be a large part of Prince Salman's calculus here, but most probably is not.

Enforce the Constitution – Gun Ownership with Harry Blazer

Gun ownership offers some protections, providing citizens with a defense in a significant number of criminal and violent confrontations.

Last week’s intervention by a former NRA gun instructor in a Texas church shooting is an important example of the role that gun owners play in protecting themselves and other people during the critical time period between the start of a crime and the arrival of law enforcement. These precious minutes often are the difference between life and death. This case also underscores why it is essential that law-abiding citizens own assault weapons.

Unfortunately, the majority of gun control proposals would strip or restrict the power of law abiding citizens, leaving them at the mercy of both criminals and a political class looking to abrogate retirement obligations and steal more assets.

Wal-Mart Is Raising Prices Of Food, Household Products On Its US Website

In what the Wall Street Journal described as an attempt to lure customers back to its brick-and-mortar locations, Wal-Mart has been quietly raising prices for some food and household products sold on its US website, including Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, Colgate toothbrushes and bags of Purina dog food.

Of course, we weren’t in the room when this plan was being vetted by whoever is in charge of corporate strategy at the retailing behemoth. But we find it hard to believe that nobody pointed out the simple fact that, if customers notice that prices have been raised on Wal-Mart’s website, customers can simply buy the same product, or a similar one, from Amazon or another competing retailer.

‘America First!’ AWOL from Beijing, War with North Korea Looms

There’s no indication that President Donald Trump’s summit with China’s Xi Jinping achieved any breakthrough on North Korea. But why didn’t it? After all, Trump said that China could “fix” the North Korea problem “easily and quickly” and it was just a matter of Xi’s making up his mind to do so.

No less divorced from reality was Trump’s half-hearted pitch on the US trade imbalance with China. The problem, he said, was not the Chinese – whom he complimented on their cleverness in exploiting our stupidity – but on the flaccid policies of prior American administrations. Quite true! But what will he do differently? Not much it seems, except maybe give a big tax cut with no strings attached to fat corporations that are thrilled to keep moving their operations overseas. Global market über alles! And here we all thought Hillary Clinton lost the election . . .

Why Robert Mueller Was Selected To Be The Special Prosecutor

Both Robert Mueller and his longtime ally James Comey (the latter of whose firing as the FBI chief, by U.S. President Trump, had sparked the appointment of Mueller to become the Special Counsel investigating the U.S. President) performed crucial roles in establishing that the Khobar Towers bombing had been a Hezbollah operation run by the Iranian Government - and, starting upon this basis, in helping to develop the case that Iran “is the foremost state sponsor of terrorism.”

However, as has been made clear by several great independent investigative journalists, on the basis of far more-solid documentation than the official account, the Khobar Towers bombing was instead entirely a fundamentalist-Sunni operation, specifically perpetrated by Al Qaeda, which hates Shia and which also hates America’s military presence in the Middle East. Osama bin Laden’s claim of the bombing's having been done by Al Qaeda, was, in fact, entirely honest and accurate.

Washington’s Drug of Choice in the War on Terror

As you read today’s piece by historian and TomDispatch regular Alfred McCoy, author most recently of In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of U.S. Global Power, think of Afghanistan as the gateway drug for three Washington administrations.

Meanwhile, the whole question of opium eradication has, according to Mashal, gotten surprisingly "little attention in the Trump administration’s new strategy for the Afghan war." It seems that U.S. counter-narcotics officials have come to accept a new reality "with a sense of helplessness" – that the country now supplies 85% of the world’s heroin and there’s no end to this in sight.

Russia blows UN lies out of the water

The recent report of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the United Nations accused the Syrian government troops of being responsible for the Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack, without providing any evidence.

The fact that the OPCW has not properly acknowledged the possibility that sarin gaas was in the possession of the rebels in Khan Sheikhoun, on April 4, 2017, is yet another major issue with regard to the veracity of the OPCW report and its findings.

There have been multiple sources of evidence in the past that the terrorists in Syria were getting toxic substances the same way they were getting many of their arms - from Saudi Arabia through Turkey.

The Guardian view on white nationalism: a rising danger

In Britain, 11 November is known as Armistice Day, but in Poland the same anniversary of the end of the first world war is remembered as Independence Day. In the west it is a memory of futile victory, but in the east it commemorates a moment of triumph, although one that would be followed by still more crushing defeat. The bright ideals of 1918 were built around a romantic conception of nationalism. Eastern Europe was to be freed from the multinational empires that had ruled it from Vienna and St Petersburg, and in their place would rise a host of little nations from Finland to Yugoslavia, to live in brotherhood and prosperity under the aegis of the League of Nations. It was a patchwork that would within 25 years disintegrate into the most terrible war – and genocide – of European history, followed by ethnic cleansings of the survivors all across eastern Europe as the old nations were reconstituted as homogenous prison camps.

Pfizer Vice President Blows the Whistle: Reveals Dark Truth About Pharmaceutical Industry

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

Israeli Army to Demolish Homes, Expel Hundreds of Palestinians From Jordan Valley

The Israeli Army is preparing to demolish an entire neighborhood of Palestinian homes in the Jordan Valley, in the occupied West Bank. The neighborhood is home to some 300 Palestinians, who will be expelled from the area.

The Israeli Army is using the military order meant to allow for the evacuation of illegal settler outposts, but simply applying it to Palestinians who they say the Israeli military never authorized to live in the region.

The document was signed by Israeli Maj. Gen. Roni Numa, and was not given to any of the Palestinians to be expelled. Instead, a single copy with a vague map of the area to be demolished was left on the road nearby.

Report: Post-9/11 War Debt Will Cost $8 Trillion in Interest

The cost of America’s global war on terror has yet to be reckoned with, and there’s a very good reason for that. By and large, the US has not been paying for all of these wars, but rather has been borrowing to pay for the conflict.

In the long run that’s going to be expensive. Paying off the war is going to mean not only paying the prices of the conflict but the massive interest accrued in borrowing the cost of those wars.

A new report suggests that just the interest on all that debt will, over the course of decades of servicing it, cost an estimated $8 trillion. So far, they say, the US has paid $534 billion in overseas contingency operations interest.

And that’s just the debt already accrued. America’s assorted wars show no sign of ending, and indeed the Pentagon has been pretty clear about the US deployment in Iraq being a permanent thing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why you have to understand that all wars are bankers' wars, because they are SO PROFITABLE for financial institutions.

How Prince Charles lobbied Tony Blair in a secret hunt letter claiming class hatred was behind a campaign against an ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘romantic’ sport

Prince Charles urged Prime Minister Tony Blair to scrap the planned hunting ban in a private letter revealed for the first time today by The Mail on Sunday.

The Prince lauded hunting as ‘romantic’ and ‘environmentally friendly’ and effectively branded opponents class warriors in the letter, sent in 2002, three years before the ban came into effect.

The disclosure of the Prince’s attempts to influence Government policy will strengthen the hand of critics who have accused him of meddling in matters of state. But others argue the Prince has a right to privacy when raising concerns.

Tel Aviv signals Israel will continue striking Syria with no respect to de-escalation zone agreement

The Israeli regime has signaled that Tel Aviv would continue with military strikes across the Syrian border to thwart any alleged encroachment by Iranian-allied forces, including the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, even by violating a de-escalation zone designated by Russia and the US in the southwest of the Arab country.
Back on July 7, Russia, the US and Jordan agreed to back a ceasefire in southwestern Syria and to establish a de-escalation zone in the Syrian provinces of Dara’a, Suwayda and Quneitra, which borders the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The truce came into force two days later and proved to be helpful in reducing fighting in the designated area.

Israel has already said that it refuses to abide by the July 7 truce deal. Later in the month, the regime’s Minister of Military Affairs Avigdor Liberman affirmed that “Israel reserves its complete freedom of action, regardless of any understandings or developments” in the region.

Saudi Arabia requests urgent Arab League meeting amid regional tensions

The Arab League is set to hold an extraordinary meeting of foreign ministers in Cairo next week at the request of Saudi Arabia amid tensions with Iran and Qatar.

According to a document shown to AFP by diplomats, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) supported the Saudi request, which was also approved by Djibouti, the current chair of the pan-Arab bloc.

According to the memo, the Saudi request came in the wake of a November 4 incident where the kingdom said a missile had been intercepted by its air defense near Riyadh after being fired from Yemen.

What President Trump and the West Can Learn from China

While Western politicos and pundits bemoan the lack of political pluralism that exists within China and President Trump complained about bad trade “deals,” they miss an important factor as to why China has transformed itself from a socialist basket case some three decades ago into an economic powerhouse which now boasts over a third of the world’s billionaires!

Military Industrial Complex

Most men and women who sign up for the military think they are working to serve their country, but in reality they are working for the Military Industrial Complex. The government of the United States is an employment agency that recruits young men and women to work for the corporations that manufacture the weapons of mass destruction.

These young patriots are not fighting to defend the American people, they are fighting for Goldman Sachs Lehman Brothers and the military industrial Complex. If Lockheed, McDonald Douglas or Boeing tried to hire young Americans to put their lives on the line for them, it is unlikely that they would be able to get many takers.

Extremely dangerous M7.3 earthquake hits Iran - Iraq border region - more than 400 killed

A very strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M7.3 hit Iran - Iraq border region at 18:18 UTC (21:18 local time) on Sunday, November 12, 2017. The agency is reporting a depth of 23.2 km (14.4 miles). EMSC is reporting M7.2 at a depth of 19 km (11.8 miles). This earthquake can have a high humanitarian impact based on the magnitude and the affected population and their vulnerability.

New Study: US state hit with up to 200 times more Fukushima fallout than expected — Over a Trillion becquerels of nuclear waste fell on Hawaii — Scientists: “Plume may have taken an alternative path… Greater than anticipated”

Fukushima-derived radiocesium fallout in Hawaiian soils… This study estimated the magnitude of cesium deposition in soil, collected in 2015-2016, resulting from atmospheric fallout… Detectable, Fukushima-derived 134Cs inventories ranged from 30 to 630 Bq m-2 and 137Cs inventories ranged from 20 to 2200 Bq m-2… This research confirmed and quantified the presence of Fukushima-derived fallout in the state of Hawai’i in amounts higher than predicted by models and observed in the United States mainland…
The Hawaiian Islands were expected to get minimal, below 10 Bq m-2 or lower, of Fukushima-derived fallout…
Fukushima-derived soil radiocesium concentrations, were greater than anticipated based on model-predicted Pacific atmospheric dispersion rates…

TSA PLANS TO USE FACE RECOGNITION TO TRACK AMERICANS THROUGH AIRPORTS

While this latest plan is limited to the more than 5-million Americans who have chosen to apply for PreCheck, it appears to be part of a broader push within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to expand its collection and use of biometrics throughout its sub-agencies. For example, in pilot programs in Georgia and Arizona last year, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) used face recognition to capture pictures of travelers boarding a flight out of the country and walking across a U.S. land border and compared those pictures to previous recorded photos from passports, visas, and “other DHS encounters.” In the Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) for those pilot programs, CBP said that, although it would collect face recognition images of all travelers, it would delete any data associated with U.S. citizens. But what began as DHS’s biometric travel screening of foreign citizens morphed, without congressional authorization, into screening of U.S. citizens, too.

Venezuela’s Oil Rival Calls For Full U.S. Sanctions

Argentina’s President, Mauricio Macri, has called on the United States to install a full embargo on Venezuelan oil shipments. In an interview for the Financial Times, Macri said that the social situation in Venezuela is rapidly deteriorating and more decisive measures are needed to topple the Nicolas Maduro government.

It’s been said before more than once that a total oil embargo against Venezuela would hurt Gulf Coast refiners in a bad way, which is perhaps the only reason why it has not been used so far and remains unlikely to be used, whatever happens in Venezuela.

Paradise Papers Reveal U.S. Selling Russian LNG In Europe

The new massive data leak that has been making headlines for several days now has revealed that a company with U.S. ownership has been buying Russian gas and selling it in Europe at higher prices.

According to a report in Belgian daily Le Soir, taken up by other media outlets, such as The Guardian and Eurasia Review, Wilbur Ross holds a 35-percent interest in Navigator Holdings, a shipping company registered in the Marshall Islands.

According to the leaked documents, four cargo carriers owned by Navigator Holdings were used to load Russian natural gas at the port of Ust Luga before heading to the Anwerp LNG terminal in Belgium.

$43 Billion China-Alaska Energy Deal Looks Shaky

In theory, LNG exports from Alaska to China would make sense. China needs more gas supply, and the U.S. has a lot of gas. The North Slope is thought to have at least estimated 35-45 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. China is trying to clean up its air quality, and gas is set to play a central role in displacing dirtier coal plants.

“A combination of rising export capacity in the US, LNG import demand growth in China, and political cheerleading has underpinned an uptick in LNG exports to China this year via third party, spot trades,” Kerry-Anne Shanks, head of Asia gas and LNG, at Wood Mackenzie, told the FT. Alaska is also significantly closer to China than, say, the Gulf Coast, where U.S. LNG is currently coming from.

Are Electric Cars As Clean As They Seem?

The whole process requires power, which more often than not is sourced from fossil fuels, not renewables or nuclear energy. This is similar to the issue electric-car charging stations face when evaluating the efficiency of their establishments in eliminating pollution from the environment. In most parts of the U.S., if the stations source their electricity from the grid, they’re just increasing demand for fossil fuels since coal, oil, and natural gas power the majority of the country anyway. Some states, like California, are obvious exceptions because of their heavy investments in green energy, but for the most part, the pattern holds.

Moreover, lithium batteries need proper facilities in order to be recycled once they reach the end of their lifespan. Tesla’s Gigafactory, which promises to produce the electric car manufacturer’s batteries in an environmentally conscious way, says it will lead a program to recycle the hardware responsibly.

Is Peak Permian Only 3 Years Away?

The world’s hottest shale basin, the Permian, is leading the second U.S. wave of tight oil production growth and will continue to do so for years to come, all analysts say.

However, signs have started to emerge that the relentless intensification of drilling leads to diminishing returns, Simon Flowers, Chairman and Chief Analyst at Wood Mackenzie, said in an article this week. Pumping twice as much sand as usual into Permian wells and drilling longer laterals doesn’t deliver commensurate volumes of oil, Flowers notes.

“Drilling costs rise exponentially with depth, and there’s a suspicion that longer wells are hitting a cost efficiency ceiling,” WoodMac’s chief analyst writes.

ARAB LEAGUE SET TO HOLD EMERGENCY MEETING, AS SAUDI ARABIA AND ISRAEL PREPARE FOR WAR AGAINST “IRANIAN EXPANSION”

Egypt-based Ahram Online reports that the Arab League is set to hold an emergency meeting on Iran at Saudi Arabia’s request in order to discuss “Iranian interference” in the region at League headquarters in Cairo.

Early unconfirmed reports indicate the meeting could take place next Sunday.

According to Zerohedge, news of the Arab League extraordinary session comes as tensions are at breaking point as regional powers – especially Saudi Arabia and Israel – talk war against perceived Iranian expansion and domination in the Middle East.

Via Reuters…

Saudi Arabia has called for an urgent meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo next week to discuss Iran’s intervention in the region, an official league source told Egypt’s MENA state news agency on Sunday.

The call came after the resignation of Lebanon’s prime minister pushed Beirut back into the center of a rivalry between Sunni kingdom Saudi Arabia and Shi‘ite Iran and heightened regional tensions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis may not have have much of an appetite for a direct confrontation with Hezbollah in Syria, but Israel will use any excuse to claim the Litani River in Lebanon as its own.

Such a war will most probably include Russia, on Iran's side, and the US and Saudi Arabia against Iran, and has all the potential of going global.

Even if you think such a war has no potential to affect you, please think again.

IF there is no quick end to this, look for a reinstitution of the draft in this country, coming after both our young men, and our young women.

VENEZUELA REACHES DEAL WITH RUSSIA ON DEBT RESTRUCTURING

President Maduro: We have reached an agreement to refinance and restructure the debt with Russia

"We have complied with all our international commitments," the Venezuelan leader recalled.

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro announced this Sunday that the government had reached an agreement to refinance and restructure the Venezuelan debt with Russia.

"We have reached an agreement with Russia, this week will be signing an agreement where refinancing is established, we have complied with all our international commitments," the president said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia has been very magnanamous in this debt restructuring; and this act is going to have an influence over Venzeuela's economy - and its foreign policy - for decades, much to the chagrin of the Occupied, Unhinted Surveilled States of Amerika.

BLACK DEATH WARNING: Madagascar plague expert fears Black Death that has killed 140 people in Madagascar become untreatable and spread to the UK

A MEDICAL expert has warned that the plague, which has already killed 140 people in Madagascar, could mutate and become untreatable.

Professor Paul Hunter also warned it was possible for the disease to reach Europe and North America like the Ebola virus did in 2014 following an outbreak in West Africa.

Hunter, who lectures in health protection at the University of East Anglia, said: "As with any disease, it's a real worry that it mutates and become untreatable."

He told the Daily Star: "If it reaches the UK, Europe or the US it would be similar to the Ebola outbreak.

"We would probably have a few isolated cases but it shouldn’t spread like it has in Madagascar."

The island, located off the southeastern coast of Africa, has seen 143 of its citizens from over 2,000 people infected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Madagascar ... is an island.

Can some one in their right minds still tell me, please, why the airport and ports have not been locked down, to prevent this contaigon from spreding?!?

Relatives meet to honor Jewish girl who died in Holocaust

More than two dozen relatives are to participate in a memorial ceremony for Karolina Cohn, a Jewish girl from Frankfurt who perished in the Holocaust more than 70 years ago. The story of her life and death had been all but erased by the Nazis, until archeologists last year unearthed a silver pendant engraved with her birthdate and birthplace at the grounds of the former Sobibor death camp. With the help of Nazi deportation lists, researchers identified Karolina as the owner of the amulet. It's almost identical to one belonging to famous Jewish diarist Anne Frank.

Syria’s UN ambassador pans West for disregarding Israeli nukes

Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar al-Jaafari slammed the Western world for providing Israel with nuclear technology and allowing it to ignore non-proliferation international conventions, in a Friday address at the General Assembly.

“The West is responsible for supplying nuclear technology to Israel… They are causing the entire world to turn a blind eye to Israel’s position on the nuclear issue,” Jaafari said, noting Israel’s recent purchase of nuclear submarines from Germany.

He added that Israel’s alleged refusal to cooperate with the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency “undermines the credibility of the international treaty and stability in the entire Middle East.”

Samsung’s Linux on Galaxy software will bring full-fledged Ubuntu desktop to your phone (with an external display)

While Samsung seems to be showing off the developer-friendly features of Linux on Galaxy right now, theoretically non-developers could use the Linux environment to run desktop apps rather than Android apps when a phone is docked. For instance, this could open the door to desktop versions of Chrome, Firefox, LibreOffice, GIMP, or other popular GNU/Linux applications… although it’s worth noting that Samsung hasn’t shown any of those programs working yet, so it’s not clear how easy it would be to install them or how well they would run.

I’m a Veteran and Please Don’t Thank Me for My Service

The Army gave me a chance to see and do things a kid from Southside Virginia was not normally going to see. I was second in command of a training company at age 21. I guarded Rudolf Hess at Spandau Prison. I traded US cigarettes for Russian uniform items with Russian border guards. I got into fights alongside men I knew had my back and who knew I had theirs–and I’ve punched people in the face for real and I’ve been punched in the face for real. I’ve been through grueling training, subsisting on one meal a day. I’ve gone for five days with four hours sleep. I’ve gone for the Biblical forty days without changing clothes or showering. I’ve led platoons and commanded companies and I’m still in touch with about half of the soldiers in those units. I’ve jumped out of perfectly good airplanes into the night. I’ve read a full colonel his rights and made him answer my very uncomfortable questions despite our disparity in rank. Whenever I see Blade Runner, I know exactly what Rutger Hauer is talking about in his famous monologue:

'They fired me for speaking my beliefs': Hardline sheikh outraged after being SACKED from his day job for saying women should wear the hijab because Muslim men 'can't control their sexual urges'

A hardline Islamic sheikh has been sacked from his day job for telling his followers women need to wear the hijab so men can control their sexual urges.

Queensland Muslim leader Sheikh Zainadine Johnson was weighing into claims made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein when he advised women on the need to cover up.

'Men should be able to control themselves. This is a common argument against the Islamic hijab,' he told his Facebook followers.

Is There Nothing Republicans Can’t Screw Up?

If you’d told me last year that complete Republican control of Congress and the White House would lead to nothing getting done, I would have laughed at you. Of course, last year I would have laughed at the idea of complete Republican control of government, so the idea of no legislative accomplishments would have been a joke not worth telling. Turns out all the jokes, at least so far, have been on us.
-That Obamacare repeal fell apart – or, more correctly, never really got off the ground – was a surprise only because Republicans had promised it for years only to have it exposed that many of them didn’t really mean it.>>>
***

Republicans know how to complain about health policy – it’s not hard when the problems are so obvious. But few truly meant repeal because only a few truly believe the federal government shouldn’t be involved in controlling the health insurance industry. The rest think the government should “do something” to lower costs and don’t understand that this is not what happens when government gets involved.

In other words, they campaign a good game about the free market; they just have no idea what those words mean.

Congress is scrambling to “protect” the so-called DREAMers from the consequences of their parents’ actions and, in the process, moving toward giving away the store.
