THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"If the debt which the banking companies owe be a blessing to anybody, it is to themselves alone, who are realizing a solid interest of eight or ten per cent on it. As to the public, these companies have banished all our gold and silver medium, which, before their institution, we had without interest, which never could have perished in our hands, and would have been our salvation now in the hour of war; instead of which they have given us two hundred million of froth and bubble, on which we are to pay them heavy interest, until it shall vanish into air... We are warranted, then, in affirming that this parody on the principle of 'a public debt being a public blessing,' and its mutation into the blessing of private instead of public debts, is as ridiculous as the original principle itself. In both cases, the truth is, that capital may be produced by industry, and accumulated by economy; but jugglers only will propose to create it by legerdemain tricks with paper." -- Thomas Jefferson to John W. Eppes, 1813.

'Privatized' Wars: Democracy 'cannot be exported'

The export of democracy is impossible in principle, believes former president of South Africa Thabo Mbeki, who shared his insights with RT's sister channel "Rusiya Al-Yaum". "You cannot export democracy. It has got to be homegrown, it has got to be indigenous," he said. "It is critically important that the people must have the space to determine their future. It does not matter how poor they are and how small they are. The idea that you have some super-powerful country which knows everything about everything ... is obviously wrong and obviously would never work."

A professor emeritus of Philosophy of Religion and Theology at the Clarement School of Theology in California for 30 years , David Ray Griffin has today, through his books and lectures, become better known as one of the leading voices of the "9/11 Truth Movement." Through his investigation and analysis of the fall of the Twin Towers and mysterious collapse of World Trade Centre 7, the attack on the Pentagon and the final 9/11 Commission Report, Griffin continues to raise provocative questions about the inconsistencies and contradictions of the official version of the events of September 11, 2001.

CASMII: Fact Sheet on US-Iran Standoff

By Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran (CASMI) via My Catbird Seat

The current U.S. standoff against Iran, like the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, was instigated by the neoconservatives of the Bush Administration based on their doctrine of “maintaining U.S. pre-eminence, thwarting rival powers and shaping the global security system according to U.S. interests”.

The same forces in U.S., U.K., Israel and allies today distort the truth and engage in deceit, coercion and aggression to achieve their goals. We will briefly examine some of the key facts in the standoff.

India joins 'neocolonial' rush for Africa's land and labour

India, once the colonial jewel of Britain's empire, has been accused of 'neo-colonialism' in Africa where its business people have joined a race with China, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere to buy up agricultural estates and take advantage of cheap labour.

Indian farming companies have bought hundreds of thousands of hectares in Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Senegal and Mozambique, where they are growing rice, sugar cane, maize and lentils for their own domestic market back in India.

The backlash begins against the world landgrab

The neo-colonial rush for global farmland has gone exponential since the food scare of 2007-2008.

Last week's long-delayed report by the World Bank suggests that purchases in developing countries rose to 45m hectares in 2009, a ten-fold jump from levels of the last decade. Two thirds have been in Africa, where institutions offer weak defence.

As is by now well-known, sovereign wealth funds from the Mid-East, as well as state-entities from China, the Pacific Rim, and even India are trying to lock up chunks of the world's future food supply. Western agribusiness is trying to beat them to it. Western funds - many listed on London's AIM exchange - are in turn trying to beat them. The NGO GRAIN, and farmlandgrab.com, have both documented the stampede in detail.

Mexican Cartels in Norcal?

In April of 2008, Barack Obama was quoted saying Medicinal Marijuana is “appropriate” but since his “election”, the Federal and State raids on Clubs and Growers have only increased. CAMP (The Campaign Against Marijuana Planting) has spearheaded many raids this year along with the local Sheriff’s Department and “The Emerald Triangle” (consisting of Humboldt, Mendocino, and Trinity Counties) is their primary target. In 1983 CAMP destroyed about 150,000 plants the entire year. During a 12 day period last month officials destroyed 150,667 pot plants in Sonoma County. It’s been speculated that so far this year, over 7 Million plants have been destroyed by Law Enforcement In 2009, 148,486 plants were seized in Sonoma County and 4.5 million plants were seized statewide.

The West has made even more mistakes in Afghanistan than us, says Russian envoy to Kabul

Andrey Avetisyan, a veteran Kabul diplomat, said talk of a handover to the Afghans was currently unrealistic because the coalition had failed to build the nation's forces or economy.

The rampant corruption riddling the administration was the West's fault for ploughing huge sums into badly-coordinated, opaque aid projects he said.

Mr Avetisyan, who began his career in Kabul in the 1980s and speaks Dari and Pashtu, said the West had not learned from Soviet mistakes.

"They are repeating all of them and they are making new ones," he told The Sunday Telegraph.

"For the last eight years, there have been no big projects, not infrastructure projects," he went on.

"A school here, a hospital there. When it is built people start asking 'Well where are the teachers and the doctors?' because no one thought about it before." The Afghan government was crippled by a shortage of able, trained civil servants. The new army was being trained "almost on the battlefield".

Which 5 Canned Foods Contain the Most BPA (bisphenol A )?

Peek inside any can and you'll notice a thin film separating your food from the metal. During the 1950s, manufacturers began lining cans with plastic to fend off bacteria that could get into food and drinks if the container corroded. The biggest concern was food-borne botulism, an illness that used to kill six in ten of its victims. Thanks to liners and rigorous sterilization, botulism in commercial canned goods is now pretty rare. Trouble is, most can liners contain bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that can leach into the food. Last year, the nonprofit Consumers Union found it in 18 of 19 canned foods it tested: Progresso Vegetable Soup topped the list with 22 micrograms of BPA per serving—116 times Consumers Union's recommended daily limit, which is based on animal studies.

Not good, considering the list of modern plagues researchers have tentatively linked to the chemical: obesity, diabetes, heart disease, breast and prostate cancer, and reproductive problems, among others. Many scientists suspect that BPA interferes with hormonal function—especially in fetuses and children: A 2005 study published in the journal Human Reproduction found that women who had miscarried three or more times showed significantly higher levels of the chemical than women who'd had successful pregnancies.

Thousands held without trial in Iraq: Amnesty

Tens of thousands of detainees are being held without trial in Iraqi prisons and face violent and psychological abuse as well as other forms of mistreatment, Amnesty International said on Monday. The London-based human rights watchdog estimates 30,000 people are held in Iraqi jails, noting several are known to have died in custody, while cataloguing physical and psychological abuses against others.

However, the deputy justice minister dismissed the report as "baseless" and a US military spokesman insisted Iraqi detention facilities met international standards.

Much has been said about the disproportionate Zionist presence in the world of organized Islamophobia. Now we learn that there is more to that claim than unfounded conspiracy theories.

The Megaphonies leap into the discussion on 9-11 at the local Honolulu paper! MEGAPHONIES START TO LOSE THE DEBATE AND STARADVERTISER SHUTS OFF THE COMMENTS!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP BACK TO THE TOP!
I wonder how long it will take for the Star advertiser to shut off the comments this time! :)

UPDATE: Well, they have not shut them off, but they are starting to delete comments that do not go the way that is desired. I posted a very detailed reply to "Liberalas" pointing out that Israelis were arrested on 9-11, some 60 in total were held in connection with the WTC attacks, and apparently this is too much news for this particular newspaper!

Other posters are also complaining that their comments are being selectively deleted. Feel free to complain. (Mail link fixed)

UPDATE 2: The Star Advertiser has (predictably) shut down the comments on this article, because they were failing to sell the Kool Aid that Muslims are bad and deserving of war. This is the reason the corporate media is no longer the mainstream media. I view this shutting off of comments as a surrender on their part. Here follows the last post I entered just before Star Advertiser pulled the plug.


Look, it is obvious what you are your associates are here to do.

For months the US Government and Israel have been trying to sell us a new war, this time with Iran, because Iran is supposedly a nuclear threat to the United States. This ploy has failed to gain any traction with the public mostly because we all remember how the very same people screaming about Iran's nuclear weapons made the same claims about Iraq. Fool me once...

So, the war-makers and the whores who work for them have switched tactics, and are trying to take us all back to the glorious days of the 13th century when Christians and Muslims gladly cut each others' throats over whose god has the largest genitalia.

But this too is failing. The war makers may be trapped living in the past but the rest of us live at the dawn of the 21st century. We have the wisdom of having lived through the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons, which grants us the awareness that all governments lie to their people and they have been doing it since Ramses II lied to his people about his non-existent victory over the Hittites at Kadesh, secure in his knowledge that the Egyptian people of that time had no way to discover his lie.

But that was then and this is now and thanks to the citizens media, the life expectancy of a government lie gets shorter every day, and today can be clocked with an egg timer.

The war mongers, however, are stuck living in the past, more out of petulance than any other reason. They want to play by the rules that used to work in the good old days of the Cold War, when Americans would fling their money and the lives of their children anywhere the US Government said, "Commie! Commie!"

Those days are gone forever. And they are not coming back.

In the real world, ask yourself just who is the real danger?

Who has ruined your financial well being? Muslims or Wall Street?

Who has made the world angry at America? Muslims or US Foreign Policy in support of Israel?

Who is destroying the very soul of what it means to be America? Muslims, or those who would gladly abandon the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of religion in their quest to ignite a new crusade?

Who is bringing theocracy to America? Muslims or Christians who insist that their religion should reign supreme over the land?

Who has destroyed the Bill of Rights so many Americans died to create and defend? Muslims, or the US Congress?

No terrorist in their wildest dreams could inflict as much damage on what the United States is supposed to stand for than the US Government, and those who would lie us into another war of conquest for profit.

We know who you war-mongers are. And we know what you stand for. And we have heard it all before.

"Why of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."-- Leading Nazi leader, Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials before he was sentenced to death


In shutting off the comments, the StarAdvertiser is taking a giant leap backward from modern interactive media to the one-way media of the 1950s and 1960s. That it is delivered via computer is irrelevant; the attitude reverts to one of "We tell you what to think and you are not allowed to disagree."

Feel free to complain. Loudly! If you do not get a polite reply, cc that email to their advertisers! (Mail link fixed)

Handcuffs For Wall Street, Not Happy Talk

The Washington Post has published a very silly op-ed by Chrystia Freeland accusing President Barack Obama of unfairly “demonizing” Wall Street. Freeland wants to see Obama tone down his rhetoric and play nice with executives in pursuit of a harmonious economic recovery. The trouble is, Obama hasn’t actually deployed harsh words against Wall Street. What’s more, in order to avoid being characterized as “anti-business,” the Obama administration has refused to mete out serious punishment for outright financial fraud.

Gulf Clean Up Contracts Expose Corruption as Usual

WASHINGTON — The federal government hired a New Orleans man for $18,000 to appraise whether news stories about its actions in the Gulf oil spill were positive or negative for the Obama administration, which was keenly sensitive to comparisons between its response and former President George W. Bush's much-maligned reaction to Hurricane Katrina.

The government also spent $10,000 for just over three minutes of video showing a routine offshore rig inspection for news organizations but couldn't say whether any ran the footage. And it awarded a $216,625 no-bid contract for a survey of seabirds to an environmental group that has criticized what it calls the "extreme anti-conservation record" of Sarah Palin, a possible 2012 rival to President Barack Obama.

10 Reasons Our Fresh Water Supply is in Deep Trouble

Jeffrey Green
Activist Post

Fresh clean water is essential to all life forms. It seems that a resource so vital should not be corralled, controlled, or corrupted by any corporation or government. However, with fresh water supplies under assault on multiple fronts, governments seek to further clamp down on individual human usage, while doing very little to reduce the reasons for the contamination. At the same time, corporations that repackage water and sell it back to the public enjoy financial benefits from the scarcity of their "product."

One of the premises he based his analysis on was that violence has receded in the Middle East in the past two years compared with the 1990s. Here, like most Western officials and journalists, Indyk ignores daily and persistent Israeli violence against Palestinians for the past sixty years which has risen to record levels in terms of the number and ferocity of Israeli crimes against Palestinian civilians in the past two years, particularly in the city of Hebron.

Israel, in a lie absurd by its own propaganda standard, congratulates itself as having the most moral military in the world -

Journalist Lauren Booth was on the first Free Gaza voyage and stayed to work in Gaza after the boats left.

Her heartfelt letter to the people of Israel should be read and seen [IN THEIS VIDEO] by everyone who hopes for peace in the Middle East.

OTTAWA — RCMP officials have identified a new threat to national security: a coup d’etat.

The reference to a violent overthrow of the federal government is contained in the RCMP’s plans and priorities report to government for 2010-11. It lists national security as one of five operational priorities for the year.

US MEDIA ‘giving rise to Islamophobia’

Speeches by certain public speakers covered by US media have been giving rise to Islamophobia in the United States, a senior member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says. Speaking in an interview with Press TV, legislative director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Corey Saylor hit out at US media for making Muslims feel increasingly alienated and insecure in the society.

WHAT A GOVERNMENT CAN DO WITH ITS OWN BANK: THE REMARKABLE MODEL OF THE COMMONWEALTH BANK OF AUSTRALIA

Virg Bernero, the mayor of Lansing, Michigan, just won the Democratic nomination for governor of his state, making a state-owned Bank of Michigan a real possibility. Bernero is one of at least a dozen candidates promoting that solution to the states’ economic woes. It is an innovative idea, with little precedent in the United States. North Dakota, currently the only state owning its own bank, also happens to be the only state sporting a budget surplus, and it has the lowest unemployment rate in the country; but skeptics can write these achievements off to coincidence. More data is needed, and fortunately other precedents are available from other countries.

One of the most dramatic is the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, which operated successfully as a government-owned bank for most of the 20th century, until it was privatized in the 1990s. The Commonwealth Bank’s creative founders demonstrated that a government-backed bank can make loans without capital. Denison Miller, the Bank’s first Governor, was fond of saying that the Bank did not need capital because “it is backed by the entire wealth and credit of the whole of Australia.”

Palestine We Will Never Forget video

A look at the role of brave Palestinian women in the resistance. And the brutality of the Israelis.

A documentary that covers some horrible incidents reported from 2008-2010.
Palestinian female detainees, like their brothers in detention, suffer from the brutality of the Israeli Prison Authority. They are exposed to abuse, humiliation and are subjected to more than 20 forms of violations. They are tortured, beaten, harassed, insulted, tied up for hours under hot sun or under rain, deprived of sleep, isolated, punished with high fines for no reason, subjected to the continuous use of tear gas in their cells, continuously denied family visits and calls back home and letters are sent or distributed only once every 3 months.

Fatah: Collaborationist Israeli Ally

At least since the Oslo Accords, Fatah has served Israel more than its own people. On August 25, Haaretz highlighted the latest example, headling "PA arrests dozens of Hamas, Islamic Jihad militants in West Bank," saying, a PA source confirmed dozens made, including "high ranking officials in (both) organizations."

On September 6, PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said hundreds were made in response to the killings of four West Bank settlers, adding, "The decision to carry out the attack was politically motivated and intended to embarrass the Palestinian Authority."

AIPAC still not regulated as a political committee

When a federal judge deploys an exclamation point in an opinion, you know something unusual is going on. On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Richard Leon tried to dispense of a case entitled Akins v. Federal Election Commission. The excruciatingly long-running case really involves, though, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, AKA AIPAC.

A number of former ambassadors, congressmen and government officials critical of the pro-Israel lobbying group sued the Federal Election Commission after the FEC declined to regulate AIPAC as a political commitee. The date of that original lawsuit? 1992.

In the meantime, three of the original plaintiffs have died and the case has had a tortured path up and down the appellate path. On Wednesday, for reasons that may or may not be worth exploring, Judge Leon dismissed the case with these heart-felt words:

"This never ending legal saga has spanned almost twenty years, multiple administrative complaints, and the careers of numerous Judges and Justices. To say the least, the time to complete the judicial review of these FEC decisions is long overdue. While time will tell what role, if any, this Opinion will have played in this interminable legal drama, I certainly trust that I will be the last District Judge that has to wrestle with this seemingly inexhaustible Hydra."

Oh, and the exclamation comes when Judge Leon exclaims, "Unfortunately, this appellate odyssey had only just begun!"

'Evidence proves 9/11 story is a lie'

Important evidence has emerged showing the official story the American public has been fed about the 9/11 attacks is a 'lie,' a group of architects and engineers say.

A day before the ninth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth say evidence regarding the destruction of the World Trade Center towers has emerged that show pre-set explosives were used in the demolition of the buildings.

The Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth group is calling on US Attorney General Eric Holder to request a federal grand jury investigation into this alleged cover-up, which Gage calls the “largest crime of the century.”

West needs new missile shield against Iranian nuclear threat, Nato chief says

Anders Fogh Rasmussen told The Sunday Telegraph he has full American backing for a proposed €200 million (£165 million) defensive "shield", which he hopes will be agreed in November at a summit of members in Lisbon.

He was speaking after weapons inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) warned last week that Iran had passed a crucial nuclear threshold which took it nearer to being able to arm ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has this gentleman gone absolutely barking mad?!?

The Iranian government is many things, but not stupid. The Iranian Parliament members understand, without question, that attacking any NATO member country would be tantamount to suicide.

Here is the IAEA report, from 6 Sept 010:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/iran/7985438/Iran-on-brink-of-nuclear-weapon-warns-watchdog.html

"A report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said Iranian nuclear scientists had made at least 22 kilograms of enriched uranium up to 20 per cent purity, a technical hurdle that is the hardest to overcome on the way to weapons-grade uranium.

Experts estimate that 20 kgs of uranium is a significant step toward arming a warhead. The uranium would still need to have its purity raised to 90 per cent, but that is a relatively easy process."

And why is Iran enriching uranium to 20%?!? It is doing this for the production of medical isotopes, a fact this article fails completely to mention.

As a signatory to the NNPT, all nuclear work is done under the inspection of the IAEA. To date, every IAEA report indicates that no nuclear material has gone missing, nor has it been enriched over the 20% necessary for the creation of medical isotopes.

Even if Iran was developing a nuclear deterrent, who in their right mind could blame them, after the US gave Iran and the world a very concrete object lesson as to what could happen to an oil-rich country which did not have a nuclear deterrent, as was the case with Iraq?!?

Obama Touts Inefficient Program to Defend Stimulus: $1.4m per Green Job Created

Activist Post

Surely everyone would love to see cleaner energy programs in the U.S., especially given the environmental catastrophe looming in the Gulf. And certainly, the American economy desperately needs jobs. But leave it to our broken government to spend the stimulus money as inefficiently as the TARP funds which did very little to create jobs. In a recent Associated Press release the Obama administration defended criticism of the stimulus "economic recovery program" by touting the jobs created under the $2.4 billion "advanced battery" program:

The Truth is an Unwelcome Guest.

Recently, someone, who insisted that he was on the up and up, fabricated an elaborate lie about something that didn’t happen. When I broached him on it he said that his recollection was foggy so maybe it wasn’t like that. Meanwhile, the lie was filled with precise details that indicated no fogginess at all. I pointed this out. His next venture was to call attention to the fact that I have very little money and no seeming means of support (he’s an expert on my life apparently, though never having met me or been exposed to any of the inner workings of my day to day existence) and yet I criticize Israel all the time. This, he says, is proof that I am a disinfo agent. He insists he is not a troll while behaving just like one.

Indian police accuse Kashmiri leader of treason

Police in Indian-administered Kashmir formally accused a key separatist leader of treason Sunday for allegedly inciting violence after participants in a massive anti-India rally torched government offices.

Farooq on Sunday denied provoking people to burn the government offices. The accusation "is a desperate attempt to dilute the political significance of thousands of Kashmiris who gathered ... demanding their right to self determination," he told The Associated Press.

Farooq is a key leader of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, an umbrella organization for nonviolent political and religious groups. He also is the chief Muslim cleric in Indian Kashmir.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh: the unrelenting, brutal violence by the Indian police in Kashmir signals a truly tone-deaf response by the Indian government to the needs and concerns of the Kashmiri people.

The Kashmiri people deserve the opportunity to vote in a referendum to determine what direction their future will take.

I understand that such a choice would be both painful, and courageous, on the part of the Indian government; but delaying or denying this will only lead to further violence and bloodshed.

Rupert Murdoch's Paywall Disaster

We had already seen the early indications that Rupert Murdoch's paywalls from The Times and The Sunday Times in the UK were a dismal failure, but as more information gets leaked about how the paywalls are working out, it's looking worse and worse. Beyond the fact that not too many people are signing up to pay, the move has upset advertisers who don't want to advertise to such a small audience:

Webmaster's Commentary:

Netanyahu asserts Israel a Jewish state

Days ahead of a crucial peacemaking session, Israel's prime minister has touched a raw nerve with the Palestinians on Sunday by demanding they recognise Israel as a Jewish state - something they have long rejected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actually what Palestine refuses to recognize is Israel as a Jewish state having a right to steal Palestinian land.

David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): "If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?" Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.

Clinton resuming `last chance' Mideast peace talks

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is shepherding Mideast talks this week that she says may be the last chance for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Clinton and former Sen. George Mitchell, President Barack Obama's special envoy to the region, planned to be in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt, for talks Tuesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli government's "final solution" for the Palestinian people, with the morally bankrupt US government's total complicity, will most likely be their forced expulsion from the West Bank and Jerusalem into Gaza, completely incapable of controlling their own destiny in any meaningful way.

Any Palestinian revolt at this turn of events will be ruthlessly crushed by the Israeli military.

9/11 – A DAY OF HOPE OR HATE?

Book burning is a special kind of savagery, it both destroys and displays an ignorance of and fear of culture, own and that of others. Julius Caesar burned the great library in Alexandria in 48 BC. Nero burned Rome in 64 AD. The Mongul hordes the Baghdad Library and that of the great Munstanstarya University eight hundred years ago. Hitler, of course was in to book burning, organized under Goebbels, the Orwellianly-named Minster of Enlightenment. The new Monguls, in US uniform, allowed or were instrumental, in the same the same, multi-fold, in 2003 – and have continued to bomb and burn property and people – and Qur’ans – for seven years – ongoing, for all the misleading “pullout” nonsense.

Row over UN inspectors in Iran to dominate IAEA meet

Diplomats close to the IAEA said the Iran report showed that Tehran, instead of helping to allay Western fears about a possible covert nuclear weapons programme, was only undermining any confidence in the proclaimed peaceful nature of its work.

The so-called "de-designation" of inspectors was "troubling", even if Iran was perfectly within its rights to vet IAEA inspectors coming into the country, as every member state is, the diplomats said.

It was the first time that experienced inspectors who had already been working in a country for a long time had suddenly had their permits revoked, they said, suggesting it was a way for Iran to intimidate and dissuade inspectors from asking too many awkward questions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: the timing on this decision to "de-designate" IAEA inspectors, sir, could not possibly be worse.

The US and Israel are going to use this as the "smoking gun" to attempt to prove that Iran has a nuclear weapons program.

Please be aware that before the US war against Iraq, Iraq expelled IAEA inspectors who were accused of espionage. Ultimately,after all the blood and money spent, it was clear that Iraq never, ever had a nuclear bomb.

If the Iranian government has problems with the inspectors it has "de-designated", the world needs to know, and now, just what the problems the Iranian government has with these inspectors.

Scientists Find Thick Layer Of Oil On Seafloor

Scientists on a research vessel in the Gulf of Mexico are finding a substantial layer of oily sediment stretching for dozens of miles in all directions. Their discovery suggests that a lot of oil from the Deepwater Horizon didn't simply evaporate or dissipate into the water — it has settled to the seafloor.

The Research Vessel Oceanus sailed on Aug. 21 on a mission to figure out what happened to the more than 4 million barrels of oil that gushed into the water. Onboard, Samantha Joye, a professor in the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Georgia, says she suddenly has a pretty good idea about where a lot of it ended up. It's showing up in samples of the seafloor, between the well site and the coast.

Journalist: Women raped at Abu Ghraib were later ‘honor killed’

Some women who were raped at the US's Abu Ghraib prison facility in Iraq were later "honor killed" by their families, says a Jordanian reporter who writes on women's issues.

"In Abu Ghraib, women were tortured by the Americans much more than the men," Lima Nabil told The Independent. "One woman said she witnessed five girls being raped. Most of the women in the prison were raped – some of them left prison pregnant. Families killed some of these women – because of the shame."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Despite mass arrests, incarceration and the tearing apart of millions of families, the war rages on with no end in sight.

The attacks plunged America into wars against the Muslim world and enriched the US arms industry. 5. 9/11 boosted pro-Israel neoconservatives, formerly a fringe group, into power, and with them America's totalitarian far right. 6. Bush's unprovoked war against Iraq destroyed one of Israel's two main enemies. 7. 9/11 put America in what may turn out to be a permanent state of war with the Muslim world – a key goal of the neoconservatives.

Does International Law Have a Future? - An Analysis

The rules produced by our legislatures, by the United Nations Charter and by our ratified treaties are not supra-human. We make them for our own benefit and we can unmake them. That is exactly what too many of our leaders are now trying to do in terms of public international law. They have contrived such double standards that the laws against the wanton slaughter of civilians simply do not apply if committed by the strong. It is only the weak who are to be held accountable for their crimes.

The law must cease to be "class based." Only then can one approach a less unjust society than our present one. It is really a battle for the type of world we want to live in - our world or theirs.

Avoid Windows Malware: Bank on a Live CD

An investigative series I've been writing about organized cyber crime gangs stealing millions of dollars from small to mid-sized businesses has generated more than a few responses from business owners who were concerned about how best to protect themselves from this type of fraud.

The simplest, most cost-effective answer I know of? Don't use Microsoft Windows when accessing your bank account online.

In direct response to this series reported and published by Security Fix, the SANS Technology Institute, a security research and education organization, challenged its students with creating a white paper to determine the most effective methods for small and mid-sized businesses to mitigate the threat from these types of attacks. Their conclusion? While there are multiple layers that of protection that businesses and banks could put in place, the cheapest and most foolproof solution is to use a read-only, bootable operating system, such as Knoppix, or Ubuntu. See the SANS report here (PDF).

Also known as "Live CDs," these are generally free, Linux-based operating systems that one can download and burn to a CD-Rom. The beauty of Live CD distributions is that they can be used to turn a Windows-based PC temporarily into a Linux computer, as Live CDs allow the user to boot into a Linux operating system without installing anything to the hard drive. Programs on a LiveCD are loaded into system memory, and any changes - such as browsing history or other activity -- are completely wiped away after the machine is shut down. To return to Windows, simply remove the Live CD from the drive and reboot.

Very interesting.

The abnormally high volume of call contracts that were traded in the last few days is highly suspicious and should be investigated.

Before 9/11 we saw the sell off of American Airlines stock and in the weeks leading up to the BP oil spill we saw the same with Goldman Sachs.

I wouldn't be surprised if this turned out to be more Zionist propaganda.

Architects and Engineers Question Official 9/11 Story (VIDEO)

The measured evaluation of architects and engineers has resulted in some major questions that need to be answered. Do we have the courage to entertain these questions? Or do we prefer to stick our heads in the sand while our freedoms are eliminated due to the official story? We owe it to future generations to examine, with a clinical mind, this crime scene of historic proportions. If we can't ask the questions, we'll never find the answers. -- Michael Edwards

JUSTIN RAIMONDO: The ‘Meaning’ of 9/11

The Israelis, having long ago declared war on all the other nations of the region, want us in their camp, and that is precisely what occurred with stunning speed before the smoke cleared from the site where the World Trade Center once stood. “We’re all Israelis now!” exulted Martin “Palestinians are subhuman” Peretz, over at The New Republic. Benjamin Netanyahu, who is today the Prime Minister of Israel, told an audience at Bar Ilan University “We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq,” according to the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv.

Once Banned by the Taliban, Child Trafficking / Exploitation Returns to Afghanistan

Reviving the ancient tradition of Bacha Bazi or "boy play," young Afghan boys are sold into slavery and prostitution and bought by powerful warlords, police officials and drug lords. Afghani government officials whose job it is to investigate reports of abuse and punish abusers are themselves participants in Bacha Bazi.

Bacha Bazi (sometimes spelled Bacha Baazi) is an ancient tradition predating Islam and is as old as Persia itself, perhaps finding its roots in ancient Greece and Rome. It is condemned by human rights activists, Muslim clerics, and the Taliban, but after decades of war in Afghanistan, children orphaned and impoverished are lured into Bacha Bazi as the only source of income for their family.
