THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"CEOs of most of the world's largest corporations daily make decisions that destroy the lives of many other human beings. Only about 1 to 3 percent of us are sociopaths - people who don't have normal human feelings and can easily go to sleep at night after having done horrific things. And of that 1 percent of sociopaths, there's probably only a fraction of a percent with a college education. And of that tiny fraction, there's an even tinier fraction that understands how business works, particularly within any specific industry. Thus there is such a shortage of people who can run modern monopolistic, destructive corporations that stockholders have to pay millions to get them to work. And being sociopaths, they gladly take the money without any thought to its social consequences." -- Thom Hartman

US braced for surge of protest over war in Afghanistan

At his home in Richmond, Virginia, Larry Syverson spends part of every day worrying there will be an unwanted knock on the door. Syverson's son, Branden, is an American soldier serving in Afghanistan, conducting dangerous patrols in an area infested with Taliban.

"I worry every day that I might hear someone come to the door unexpected. Just last week two of his best friends were killed over there," he said.

That's why Syverson, 60, an environmental engineer, is trying to organise a protest in Richmond against the war in Afghanistan for the second weekend in October, almost eight years after the conflict began.

On Yom Kippur

As we approach Yom Kippur, I call on America’s Jews to examine the Goldstone findings, and consider their implications. In the spirit of the season, we must consider the painful truth of Israel’s behavior in Gaza, and understand that we must work, together, to discover the truth — and then urge on all relevant parties in the search for peace.

Israel Deliberately Escalating Tensions in Occupied J’lem

Palestinian leaders warned Israel on Sunday not to stoke tension in occupied Jerusalem in the hope of thwarting peace talks, after clashes at a sacred site in which Palestinians and Israeli police were injured.

“At a time when [U.S.] President [Barack] Obama is trying to bridge the divide between Palestinians and Israelis, and to get negotiations back on track, Israel is deliberately escalating tensions in (occupied) Jerusalem,” chief Palestinian peace negotiator Saeb Erakat said Sunday evening.

STILL WAITING FOR THE ‘CHANGE’ PROMISED IN CAIRO

Time has changed people even President Obama. My mind gets confused as to how people would dramatically change. Nothing has been implemented from Obama’s speech. Therefore we determined that it was just a speech with no action. We were considerably manipulated with Obama’s speech in Cairo thinking that the new American administration will be completely different from the previous one and actual actions will noticeably be taken.

In Gaza, everything was targeted, homes, schools and human beings. More than a thousand Gazans were savagely killed and thousands more were seriously wounded. Young children still feel unsafe and are suffering from severe psychological problems. The scenes of death means of Israelis will never leave from our minds.

Even if Iran has a weapon of mass destruction (which we know they do not), and even if Iran has long range ICBMs to reach across the Atlantic with (which we know they do not), Iran would still not be a threat to the US because any attack with a weapon of mass destruction would be national suicide.

U.S. at critical point in Iran, Afghanistan Graham says

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said today that without a strong response in Iran and Afghanistan the United States and its NATO allies are heading for “Armageddon.”

Graham, speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” said it’s obvious what Iran is up to at its unfinished uranium enrichment plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One wonders what Graham would have this country do?

Go to a full all-out war in Afghanistan, to kill as many Afghans as necessary for to insure the installation of the pipelines to control Eurasian oil, and another full all-out war against Iran to "neutralize it" for Israel's geopolitical agenda?

Looking at his statement, the answers to these two questions must be an unequivocal, "yes".

Viking 2 Likely Came Close to Finding H2O

"A lot of people think there isn't life on Mars because there wasn't any water on Mars. Our experiment was a definite positive response for life, but a lot of people have claimed that it was a false positive for a variety of reasons. One of the reasons was because there wasn't any water found," Straat told Discovery News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The bottom line is that NASA had one positive result and one negative result, and like the botched Hubble telescope in which NASA simply ignored the one test result saying the system was not focusing correctly because of political pressure ( not to mention bad decision making on both Challenger and Columbia), NASA allowed public pressure from the bible-bangers to steer it away from the results which indicated life on Mars. After the drubbing we had taken from the White House for "failing" to set down Viking 1 on July 4th, 1976, NASA management was probably feeling a bit bruised and unready for another controversy.

But those of us working on the project were for the most part convinced that we had indeed found traces of life. and it is nice to see a small vindication after all these years.

NASA needs to remember that it is supposed to be first and foremost a scientific endeavor, and science is not supposed to be swayed by public outcry.

Gates says Afghanistan review to take 'a few weeks'

"The reality is failure in Afghanistan would be a huge setback for the United States," Gates said on CNN's State of the Union.

"What's important is whether or not the government of Afghanistan has legitimacy in the eyes of the Afghans," Gates said on CNN. "All of the information that we have available to us today indicates that continues to be the case."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another memo to SecDef Gates: What you characterize as "failure in Afghanistan" is not a huge setback for the people of the United States: it will be a failure for the oil companies wanting to install pipelines to control Eurasian oi.

And sir, reading that statement about "What's important is whether or not the government of Afghanistan has legitimacy in the eyes of the Afghans." makes me want to either laugh or cry uncontrollably.

The alleged "re-election" of Karzai was a sham, a farce, a slow-mo Kabuki theatre exercise, writ large.

The world knows this, the US knows this, and for damned sure, the Afghan people know it.

This was all about the US and NATO re-instating Karzai, with the sure and certain knowledge that he would be compliant to every US and NATO demand.

And if the opium is for the Taliban, why is cheap heroin flooding into the United States?

MI6: Saudis Will Let Israel Bomb Iran Nuclear Site

Citing a meeting between MI6 chief Sir John Scarlett and Mossad chief Meir Dagan, British newspaper The Daily Express is claiming that Saudi Arabia is “ready to allow Israel to bomb Iran’s new nuclear site.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here comes yet another wave of articles to "soften up" the people of the UK and the US toward an Israeli military strike on Iran.

Civilians flee Taliban stronghold in NW Pakistan

Hundreds of civilians were fleeing al-Qaida and the Taliban's main stronghold in northwest Pakistan after the army and militants asked them to leave, a tribal elder and a witness said Monday, a sign the military could be poised to launch an offensive.

Pakistan has vowed to root out militants in the northwest, many of whom allegedly use the mountainous tribal areas along the border as a base for attacks on American and NATO troops in Afghanistan. Pakistan jets have bombed targets in the stronghold of Waziristan in recent months, but the military has said it would launch full-scale ground operations at the "appropriate" time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pakistan is hovering on the brink of becoming a failed, nuclear-armed state.

Its government can provide very few of its citizens economic or physical security, and not much in the way of hope.

One has to wonder how long the current situation(aided and abetted by US "aid" which has bought off the government and military off from complaining about US slaughter of Pakistani citizens) can continue.

If complete destabilization of the country was the US goal (to keep Russia from being able to re-supply Iran by land when conflict breaks out here), one could say that the goal is very close to being met.

But it certainly has created spectacularly increased misery for the Pakistani people.

U.S. Is Seeking a Range of Sanctions Against Iran

“There are a variety of options still available,” Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” said of the potential list of targets for Iranian sanctions, notably in energy equipment and technology. He called it “a pretty rich list to pick from.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to SecDef Gates: no, sir, there is not "...“a pretty rich list to pick from.”

Russia and China are most probably not going to go along with harsher sanctions than already exist against Iran.

And any blockade of the Gulf by the US will be considered - and rightly so - an act of war against Iran.

September ‘Surprise’

In his UN oration, Obama declared “Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow," a manifestly untrue statement that nonetheless went largely unchallenged. Because "all nations" apparently doesn’t include the state of Israel, which has as many as 200 nuclear weapons and is no doubt developing more.

Obama hailed efforts to strengthen the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) and singled out Iran and North Korea as two examples of nations that "choose to ignore international standards" and "put the pursuit of nuclear weapons ahead of regional stability and the security and opportunity of their own people." These two miscreants, he intoned, "must be held accountable."

Despite Western attempts to accuse Iran of "secrecy", several days after the publication of Iran's letter, a US counter-proliferation official confirmed that Washington knew about the second Iranian nuclear plant “for several years”.

US officials continue to represent Iran's clear openness as a "hidden agenda", while avoiding a series of questions raised by Tehran about how they conduct their nuclear activities.

Israeli Spying: The Mother of all Scandals

So here is the mother of all scandals.

For two years, the FBI has suspected AIPAC of spying for a foreign country, and for those two years (and for decades before) that group suspected of spying for Israel has been reshaping the US Congress for the benefit of a foreign government.

And THAT is the mother of all scandals.

Think about that as billions of your tax dollars flow to Israel while your roads and schools crumble and decay and services are cut.

Think about that as the coffins come home with your loved ones inside.

Think about that when you and a million of your fellow citizens march down the streets of America opposing wars built on lies and deceptions and wonder why the government just doesn’t want to listen to you any more.

Goldstone is historic blow in the war Israel is losing– the ‘Legitimacy War’

Considered more carefully, there are some good reasons for Israel’s panicked reaction to this damning report. First, it does come with the backing of an eminent international personality who cannot credibly be accused of anti-Israel bias, making it harder to deflect attention from the findings no matter how loud the screaming of ‘foul play.’ Any fair reading of the report would show that it was balanced, was eminently mindful of Israel’s arguments relating to security, and indeed gave Israel the benefit of the doubt on some key issues. Secondly, the unsurprising findings are coupled with strong recommendations that do go well beyond previous reports.

Editorial: IAEA and Israel

At least Iran has publicly declared it has a new uranium enrichment facility. And it will allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect it. Israel, though, has yet to make such announcements or gesture. For decades Israel has refused to confirm the now well-documented fact that it has a significant arsenal of nuclear warheads — the only country in the Middle East known to have successfully developed such a program. Estimates suggest it has as many as 200 warheads, putting every Arab state within range of a nuclear strike.

With the connivance of the West, Israel has been allowed to do all this unchecked at its nuclear weapons factory at Dimona in the Negev, and without signing the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Hundreds of junior FBI agents, Homeland Security footpads and others were sent into the streets to find people who would fit the profile. They had to be from a Muslim country.

They would suddenly lose their job; their wife might be assaulted by a diamond merchant on her way to a mosque, they might be evicted. Whatever it took to get them to the right emotional state and fired up about the right target was the goal. Once they were in the proper frame of mind, a government agent would appear as an angel of mercy and find them a job and a place to stay. Then they would groom the ‘terrorist’ by providing a mental framework.

My Day Among the Tax-Eaters

Last week I testified before the House Financial Services Committee in support of HR 1207, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009. Speaking on behalf of HR 1207 is particularly tricky because (1) what the Fed might be up to is entirely speculative, and thus can hardly be admitted into testimony; and (2) the bill is not opposed to the Fed per se, so arguments about the Fed’s performance as an economic stabilizer are also out of bounds (unless a congressman happens to raise them). Thus when the opposition argues that the Fed needs to maintain its secrecy in order to be able to keep up the super job it’s been doing, it would be considered "political" to argue that the Fed’s record has in fact been terrible.

Israeli vigilantes target young Arab-Jewish couples

“Stop, right there. Stop the car. Is he an Arab? That dark guy . . . If they are both Jewish, keep the car moving!” yells out ‘David’, a 31-year-old Jewish settler who does not use his real name.

For more than a decade, David has considered it his unofficial job to patrol the streets looking for mixed Arab-Jewish couples. “We are protecting the Jewish people, our traditions, our heritage. Some people just get mixed up. We talk to them, explain why it’s important for Jews to be with Jews,” he said.

If this were taking place in the US deep South, and someone was trying to stop people from dating each other on the basis of their ethnicity or religion, we'd call this for what it truly is; ugly, naked racism of the highest order.

US commander asks for big troop buildup: senator

"I think it's the worst -- one of the many worst-kept secrets in Washington. It's 30,000 to 40,000 troops," said McCain, the former Republican presidential nominee who urged Obama to meet the commander's request.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

40,000 more troops (and precisely where they're going to come from is unclear) will not change the situation on the ground.

Between aerial bombardment, which is only killing innocent civilians, and radicalizing the population into the waiting arms of the Taliban, coupled with a state government more collectively crooked than a dog's hind leg, our options are becoming increasingly more stark.

The first option is - literally - to kill almost every Afghan left standing, and get the oil pipelines installed to enable the West to control Eurasian oil.

And as horrendous as that sounds, don't think for a second that there aren't some folks in the halls of power in DC who haven't at least been thinking about it.

The second option makes far more sense. But because it is logical, the White House and Pentagon will ignore it completely.

That is, declare victory, and leave, just as quickly as safely and humanly possible for our troops. Then negotiate with whatever government is left standing about how much they will charge for rent on the installation of those pipelines.

As late as August of 2001, the Bush administration was negotiating with the Taliban about the pipelines, but felt that the asking price was "too high". Apparently to Bush and Cheney, it was "cheaper", in blood and money, to blow the Taliban out of power, and install a puppet government in Kabul, which they did.

What they collectively forgot, however, was that it was the United States which had originally trained the Taliban against Soviet Union.

They not only learned well and successfully enough to get the old Soviet Union; they have also adapted what they learned to confront US and NATO troops with even more deadly tactics and weapons.

World Bank says don't take dollar's place for granted

World Bank President Robert Zoellick said the United States should not take the dollar's status as the world's key reserve currency for granted because other options are emerging.

"The United States would be mistaken to take for granted the dollar's place as the world's predominant reserve currency," he said. "Looking forward, there will increasingly be other options."

Evidence emerges that seasonal flu vaccine increases risk of H1N1 swine flu

To hear it from the vaccine makers, their vaccines are perfectly safe and have no side effects. A person can receive an unlimited number of vaccines (10, 100 or even 1000) and have absolutely no ill effects, they claim. This is the quack science mythology upon which mass vaccination policies are currently based. But new evidence is emerging that people receiving a seasonal flu shot are made more susceptible to H1N1 swine flu as a result.

CBC News in Canada is now reporting disturbing findings you need to know about: "Four Canadian studies involved about 2,000 people, health officials told CBC News. Researchers found people who had received the seasonal flu vaccine in the past were more likely to get sick with the H1N1 virus."

Cash-strapped Britons are selling kidneys to pay mortgages and clear debts

Cash-strapped Britons are resorting to selling their kidneys to pay their mortgages and clear their debts.

The would-be 'donors', who include a nurse and a taxi driver, are charging up to £60,000 plus expenses, an investigation found.

They risk up to three years in jail if caught but say the potentially dangerous operation is their only option for getting back in the black.

Military and Riot Thugs Detain, Dehumanize and TORTURE American Citizens

In what was possibly the most surreal, horrific, and unimaginable thing I have ever witnessed in my life, 1200 Riot Police and Military Personal rabidly attacked a group of well under 300 American citizens, many of them just students that were unaware there was even a protest going on.

Toronto Star: Who you calling docile?!

Yeah, China is bad alright. But we're badder because we delude ourselves into thinking we have a democracy, in spite of the government deciding everything for us behind closed doors, putting on a show in the House that bears no resemblance to the collusion that goes on in secret, lying to us at every opportunity via the compliant media, confounding every issue to the point where people don't trust politicians period and only a few die-hard Conservatives trust the media, and a large percentage of the voters are too lethargic to even bother showing up at the polls on election day - because they know it's just going to be the same old same old, except maybe even worse.

Any differences in the comparison between China and North America are mere technicalities.

J'lem archbishop: Israel targets mosque today, church tomorrow

Archbishop Atallah Hanna, one of the highest-ranking Christian clergymen in Jerusalem, declared Sunday's violence near the Al-Aqsa Mosque a dark premonition of Israel's plans for the city.

"What is being planned for Jerusalem is very dangerous," the archbishop said in a statement. "What happened today at the Al-Aqsa yard is a dangerous indicator of what Israeli authorities intend to work toward on Al-Aqsa, in particular, and in Jerusalem, in general."

ICC Prosecutor May Charge Israeli With War Crimes

As chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Luis Moreno-Ocampo has so far steered clear of controversial cases. In doing so, he hoped to allay U.S. fears that the ICC would become a politicized tool for settling scores. Which is why it's so surprising that Moreno-Ocampo is now considering an investigation into whether Lt. Col. David Benjamin, a reserve officer in the Israeli military, authorized war crimes during the Gaza campaign earlier this year.

Attorney: OKC bombing tapes appear edited

Long-secret security tapes showing the chaos immediately after the 1995 bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building are blank in the minutes before the blast and appear to have been edited, an attorney who obtained the recordings said Sunday.

"The real story is what's missing," said Jesse Trentadue, a Salt Lake City attorney who obtained the recordings through the federal Freedom of Information Act as part of an unofficial inquiry he is conducting into the April 19, 1995, bombing that killed 168 people and injured hundreds more.

The Constitution: The God That Failed

The document was drafted in the summer of 1787 behind closed doors in tremendous secrecy because if word leaked out of the actual contents and intent, the revolution that had just concluded would have been set ablaze again. It was a political coup d’état. It was nothing less than an oligarchical coup to ensure that the moneyed interests, banksters and aristocrats could cement their positions and mimic the United Kingdom from which they had been recently divorced.

Core of Corruption (Google Video)

Core of Corruption is a video documentary documenting the many indications that the alleged Saudi terrorists seemed to be under some type of security service protection while in the USA. Not only did they get special help to get the Visas to get into the US (a consular official who protested to his superiors that these people were terrorist and should not get Visas was ignored), once they were here every time there was a chance they could have been caught circumstances worked out to the hijackers' advantage as the investigators were ordered off the case, not to share their information with other relevant agencies etc. and they were allowed to proceed with their plans apparently unimpeded.

Also covers the role of the Israeli agents apparently shadowing the hijackers, the dancing Israelis on 9/11 celebrating the collapse of the towers, the attack forewarning to the employees of Odigo the Israeli messaging company, the use of wiretapping equipment in US phone systems which was provided to the FBI by an Israeli high-tech company likely with Mossad connections. The Israeli's in the white vans on 9/11 dressed as Arabs. Reports of explosions in the news reports in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 WTC attacks. - And much more

Real reform in Israel is a distant prospect

First, the privatisation means that land previously managed by the state after it was expropriated from Palestinians by past Israeli governments will become the property of private owners. This despite the fact that these mass expropriations were carried out ostensibly for a "public" purpose, and therefore should revert to their original owners once the original reason for the state's expropriation is no longer relevant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel wants territory, by any means necessary.

Peace is absolutely not a priority to a succession of Israeli governments, and Netanyahu's is no exception.

The perils of an Israeli airstrike on Iran

US experts believe that while Israel unquestionably has the military capability — and may have the political will — to mount a long-range attack, it could not sustain the kind of long-term barrage that Washington launched against Baghdad in the early phases of two Gulf wars.

Only if America joined in would Iran have reason to worry. There is no immediate likelihood of a US military strike; but there are still some in Tel Aviv who believe that an Israeli raid might force Obama’s hand and persuade the Pentagon to join the attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because an Israeli strike against Iran would be the most catastrophically hubristic decision which could ever be made on the part of Israeli civilian and military leadership is absolutely no reason to bet against it.

But you can count on Israel doing whatever it considers necessary to get the US into the fight as well.

G-20 Contradictions: Pledge to Re-Regulate; Committed to De-Regulate

G-20 commitments to reestablish financial service regulation are in direct contradiction with deregulation requirements in the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) 1999 Financial Services Agreement.

“It is crazy that the G-20 leaders vowed to re-regulate the financial system while simultaneously undermining their ability to actually do so,” said Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch division. “Instead of agreeing to change WTO rules that now obligate 105 nations to continue the extreme finance deregulation policies that got us into this economic mess, the G-20 leaders called for completion of a WTO expansion that includes additional financial deregulation.”

The descent of Britain's Afghan campaign into a Vietnam-style madness

How were we going to win the battle to bring the civilians onside if we killed one of their number and offered nothing to ease the pain in terms they understood? It was heartless. It was wrong. And it was no way to wage a campaign against an enemy ready to exploit any of our mistakes to turn the 26 million people of Afghanistan against us. Christ, as if things weren't tough enough.

I would urge readers to particularly share this article, a very sobering, first-hand account of military operations here, with those still believing we have any moral or just right to be in Afghanistan.

Washington seeks hegemony over South Caucasus

?he United States and Russia are in a race for control over energy resources, and all the processes in the South Caucasus should be considered in this context, Andranik Tevanyan, Director of the Political Economy center, told NEWS.am, commenting on the information on Pentagon’s plans to deploy military bases in Georgia by 2015.

According to him, the United States is trying to resolve all the problems in the South Caucasus at one time thereby ensuring its hegemony over the region and making one more step toward greatly desired energy resources. Tevanyan stressed that the military bases will not be aimed against any country – they are just supposed to enable Washington “to draw nearer” to the energy resources of Central Asia and Azerbaijan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the major reasons US is in Afghanistan to attempt to control the flow of Eurasian oil.

Tell that with a straight face to families and friends of those who have gotten killed or maimed permanently as a result of "serving their country" in this war.

The Price of Pretense in Pittsburgh

In 2009, despite the tilted playing field, the American people have heroically managed to increase their savings (although clearly not as much as they would have in a free market). But President Obama’s runaway deficit spending is undermining their efforts. The simple truth is that government debt is our debt. So if a family manages, at some cost to their lifestyle, to squirrel away an extra $1,000 in saving this year, but the government adds $20,000 in new debt per household (each family’s approximate share of the $1.8 trillion fiscal 2009 deficit), that family ends up owing $19,000 more than they did at the beginning of the year!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And there you have it.

Government borrowing to finance these immoral wars without end is not only sinking the government's economy; it's sinking the economy of every single citizen who lives in the US.

Iran: US, UK, France deceiving world on their nukes

Iran's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency has accused the US, Britain, and France of deceiving the international community over their nuclear programs.

In an exclusive interview with Press TV, Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh rejected remarks by President Barack Obama of US, British Premier Gordon Brown, and Nicolas Sarkozy of France over Iran's nuclear program.

The three leaders earlier attacked the Islamic Republic over its second under-construction enrichment facility, located 100 kilometers south of Tehran, calling it a "deception."

Fading Into Mist...

There is no subject more restricted nor more controlled in the United States than a critical discussion of Israel. Balanced argument is ignored while each word is parsed -- and condemned. It's strange that we are free to rant and rave and point out the war crimes of our own administration -- of all other administrations throughout the world -- but not those of Israel. The few who dare to question the damage Israel has wrought throughout the Middle East for decades are immediately labeled "anti-Semitic," and are in danger of losing their friends, jobs, their reputations and, if they persist, their country -- for America has zero tolerance for those who recognize Israel's brutality.
