Iraq War Deaths Exceed Vietnam War Numbers

Iraq War Deaths Exceed Vietnam War Numbers
Department of Veterans Affairs Reports 73 Thousand U.S. Gulf War Deaths
By Gary Vey for viewzone
Fighting in Iraq is mainly in urban areas. Soldiers who are injured are quickly evacuated with armored personnel carriers or helicopters. It's a much more efficient system than what was possible in Vietnam, but for those that are seriously injured it means that death is more likely to happen while they are in transit or at the treatment facility.
Under the new reporting system, deaths that happen en route or post evacuation are not counted as combat deaths. This is why the number seems unusually low -- a little over four thousand as of 2009.

Israeli Palestinian Talks Halted: Now What?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last week President Pussy insisted that the Arab nations withdraw their motion to require Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and submit to IAEA inspections because to make an issue of Israel's nuclear weapons might "threaten the peace process."

The United Nations Human Rights Council report which concluded that Israel's attack on the aid flotilla, which included seizure of a US ship and murder of a US citizen, was a "brutal" violation of international law, in defense of a blockade of Gaza which is itself a violation of international law. President Pussy insisted that this report be downplayed because calling attention to Israel's war crimes might "threaten the peace process."

Well, the peace process is dead, President Pussy.

The Peace Process is dead because Israel murdered it, just as they murdered a 19 year old American with a camcorder with a gunshot to his face as he lay helpless on the deck of the seized aid ship.

Israel murdered the peace process because even as they talk peace Israeli bulldozers bought and paid for by American taxpayers continued to wage war on the ancestral homes of Palestinians.

So what are you going to do now, President Pussy, with the US elections just a month hence?

All Americans know you turned your back on the Americans captured and killed by Israel in international waters last May for the sake of a Peace process that was dead on arrival because it excluded the elected representatives of the people of Gaza. All Americans know you that even as you whine about Iraq and Iran's non-existent nuclear "threat" you gave the one nation in the Mideast that actually does have nuclear weapons a free pass, for the sake of a Peace process that was dead on arrival because Israel never has wanted peace, but only the appearance of moral rightness as it continues to steal other peoples' homes with US blessing and support.

With the end of the peace process you used as a shield you stand exposed from now to election day as Israel's puppet. Every day from now through November 4th that you refuse to confront Israel over her murder of an American citizen in international waters will be a day all America knows that you have betrayed your oath of office. Every day from now through November 4th that you refuse to confront Israel over her undeclared nuclear arsenal will be a day all America know that the Democrats have sold their souls to Israel for thirty pieces of silver.

Shame on you, Barack. You are a disgrace as a President, as a Democrat, and as an American. You are the worst President in United States History.

Fears of Chinese land grab as Beijing's billions buy up resources

China is pouring another $7bn (£4.4bn) into Brazil's oil industry, reigniting fears of a global "land grab" of natural resources.

State-owned Sinopec clinched the deal with Spain's Repsol yesterday to buy 40 per cent of its Brazilian business, giving China's largest oil company access to Repsol Brasil's estimated reserves of 1.2 billion barrels of oil and gas. The whopping price tag for Repsol Brasil – which values the company at nearly twice previous estimates – is a sign of China's willingness to pay whatever it takes to lock in its future energy supplies and avoid social unrest. It will give the company enough cash to develop all its current oil projects, including two fields in the Santos Basin.

Netanyahu Humiliates Obama Again

The Obama administration's attempts at seducing Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, are getting embarrassing. Netanyahu has made it very clear he is not interested.

According to Ha'aretz, the latest (and most cringe-worthy) moment in the saga came this week when Dennis Ross, the president's top adviser on Israel-Palestinian issues, convinced Obama that Israel would only agree to an extension of the settlements freeze if Obama would "come off as friendlier" to Bibi.

So Ross and his aides (working with the Israelis) drafted a letter to Netanyahu in which the US would give Israel everything it could possibly want in exchange for a two-month freeze.

Army embeds active-duty PSYOPS soldiers at local TV stations

The U.S. Army has used local television stations in the U.S. as training posts for some of its psychological-operations personnel, The Upshot has learned. Since at least 2001, both WRAL, a CBS affiliate in Raleigh, N.C., and WTOC, a CBS affiliate in Savannah, Ga., have regularly hosted active-duty soldiers from the Army's 4th Psychological Operations group as part of the Army's Training With Industry program. Training With Industry is designed to offer career soldiers a chance to pick up skills through internships and fellowships with private businesses. The PSYOPS soldiers used WRAL and WTOC to learn broadcasting and communications expertise that they could apply in their mission, as the Army describes it, of "influenc[ing] the emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of foreign audiences."

Foreclosure Fraud Crisis, Banks “Mishandle” Thousands of Home Foreclosures

Already fragile US financial firms are facing a raft of law suits and potential fines after three major mortgage lenders admitted to mishandling thousands of home foreclosures.

Major mortgage lenders Bank of American, JPMorgan Chase and GMAC have in recent days announced they were suspending tens of thousands of foreclosure processes across the country due to apparent improper handling of documents.

Attorney generals in six states are already investigating claims by borrowers that lenders have committed errors in the foreclosure documentations.

Facing foreclosure? Stay put - legally.

"A huge percentage of US mortgages written during the Bush era were fraudulent, in violation of lending laws and/or so carelessly handled the banks can’t find the paperwork.

"If you or someone you know is facing foreclosure on a Bush era mortgage and they want to keep their home, find someone who specializes in auditing real estate loans and if you find malfeasance (or gross incompetence), get a lawyer and stay put."

Preparing for a U.S. Border Crossing

If you're planning to leave – and especially to enter – the United States, you need to take several precautions before you do so.

That's because Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents can seize and copy the contents of any electronic device you carry across a U.S. border. That includes your laptop, your cell phone, your USB flash drives, your digital camera, etc. Agents don't need probable cause or even reasonable suspicion to conduct a search of your electronic data – just "gimme." They can copy the data for investigative purposes and then use that information against you in a subsequent criminal case.

Exodus of Jewish Advisors from Obama White House Likely Not an Omen of Good Things to Come

Race to the Bottom

Given the US dollar's status as the world's reserve currency, America's oversized status as the world's biggest consumer, and the influence of overseas export-oriented businesses on their home governments, the falling dollar is a difficult issue for many countries to ignore. And with the imminent arrival of a second round of "quantitative easing" from the Fed, the big guns of dollar destruction are being locked and loaded. The move looks poised to set off a frantic race to the bottom among global currencies, which will have important ramifications for every investor. Unfortunately, this is one race the United States is poised to win.

Global employment crisis will stir social unrest, warns UN agency

For the United States - where persistent unemployment has become one of the main issues in this November's elections - the number of jobs still needed to regain pre-crisis levels is 6.9 million, Steven Tobin, ILO economist, said.

The extended loss of employment and growing perceptions of unfairness risked increasing social tension, the ILO said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, here in the US, what form that fury people are feeling, fuelled by desperation, will take, and what moves the US government will be willing to take if "unrest" in this country turns violent.

The focus of the Afghan War is clearly shifting south into Pakistan, drawing that nation and the United States forces ever closer to a direct confrontation. This grim development was as predictable as it was inevitable.

Last week, Pakistan temporarily closed the main US/NATO supply route from Karachi to the Afghan border at Torkham after the killing of three Pakistani soldiers by US helicopter gunships. Two US/NATO fuel supply convoys were burned by anti-American militants.

Eighty percent of the supplies of the US-led forces in Afghanistan come up this long, difficult route. Along the way, the US pays large bribes to Pakistani officials, local warlords, and to Taliban. The cost of a gallon of gas delivered to US units in Afghanistan has risen to $800.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we are seeing evolving here is a war against the Pakistani people, the "privilege" of doing such having been purchased from Pakistani military and political leaders looking the other day while their citizens get maimed and killed in these drone strikes.

The US cannot and will not win these wars without end; most likely, the US government will collapse under the weight of its indebtedness, and the US will balkanize.

Facebook suppressing stories about UFOS! (No, really, they ARE! Honest!)

Investigation has revealed that Facebook.com has denied its users access to critical extraterrestrial disclosure information...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another in an apparently unending series of not-as-subtle-as-they-think news stories to keep planting space aliens and UFOs in the public mind ahead of some nefarious "Hail Mary" stunt to scare us all back into willing slavery.

"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government." -- Henry Kissinger speaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 Bilderburgers meeting. Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting.

Farewell to Arms: Jenny, Iraq and the Next War

The war is not over, and an older war is being expediently reignited. Jenny, once home, will be told of how bad things have been. How difficult it is to find a job. Her chances of making a dignified living in America have dwindled significantly since she joined the army, regardless of when that was. The army, after all, might be her best chance at making a living.

The revelations emerged a day after the UN published a hotly contested report into crimes committed by armed groups in the eastern Democratic Republic Congo at the end of the 1990s.

Kashmir: Would the Sense Prevail?

The time is ripe for the Indian leaders to reconcile with the ground realities and accept the fact that Kashmir is not its integral part; rather, it is a disputed territory, as declared by UNSC resolutions. Its inhabitants have never reconciled to live with the India. They have a clearly defined destination in the form of Pakistan. Therefore, let them exercise their right of self-determination through a UN defined mechanism of plebiscite. If such a sense prevails in the thoughts of unyielding Indian leadership, South Asia would become a centre of peace in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

India has the opportunity to make an historic and very brave choice, which will enhance the prospects for peace in the entire region of Central Asia: whether they will make that choice, by way of creating a referendum for the people of Kashmir, however, remains to be seen.

US may abandon Pak-Afghan supply route

Upset over mounting terror attacks targeting the Nato/ISAF supply trucks travelling to Afghanistan via Pakistan, the high command of the US-led allied forces stationed in Afghanistan has warned the decision makers in Islamabad that their failure to prevent such assaults could force them to abandon Pakistan as the major supply route to Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The hole in the pocket of taxpayers which is the US/NATO war in Afghanistan is just about to get one heck of a lot bigger.

The three alternatives described here to shipping goods through Pakistan, if they are able to be implemented, will be extraordinarily more expensive than what we have been doing.

United States intelligence officials have concluded that a recently recorded audiotape that was broadcast on an Arab television network last week is genuine and contains the voice of Osama bin Laden, apparently ending months of debate in the government over whether the elusive terrorist leader is still alive. [New York Times]

11/30/2002: Swiss scientists: "The recording is a fake"

Scientists in Switzerland say they are almost certain that an audio tape attributed to Osama bin Laden is a fake. ... Researchers at the Dalle Molle Institute for Perceptual Artificial Intelligence, in Lausanne, believe the message was recorded by an impostor.

WARNING U.S. Considering Travel Alert for Europe ( after FAKE Bin Laden tape )

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the same sort of PR type crap we saw in the weeks leading up to 9-11. Nothing has actually happened. There has been no terror attack. The US has NOT issued any warnings, the entire story is that they are "thinking about it." This is a non-story story whose sole purpose is to wave the name 'Osama bin Laden' at you one more time in the hope that, like Pavlov's dogs, you will react the way you have been conditioned to react.

Of course, we all know the real Osama died in 2001. All the Osamas since then are all exposed as fakes. Osama himself was a fake, a super-villain manufactured by the CIA. But there never was any evidence linking Osama to 9-11. Indeed the vast majority of the evidence points to Israel as the culprit behind 9-11!

We The People all know this to be true, and it is a bit insulting that ABCNNBBCBS still thinks their audience is a bunch of idiots who will fall for this sort of crap time and time again, but then considering what little is left of their audiences, maybe they are right. With the sole exception of my mother-in-law, I don't know anybody brainless enough to believe the TV network news any more.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel's supporters keep emphasizing that this was "only" a rubber bullet, but the IDF rubber bullets, unlike the rubber bullets used for riot control in the United States which are all soft rubber, are a coating of rubber over a steel core and at close range are still lethal. The important point here is not the type of bullet used, but that Israelis shot at a man already tied up and blindfolded, so they could brag to their friends how they shot a Palestinian!

‘Dear Friends,

“Under the radar” is not what we’re used to in the Jewish community.

We demand it big and bold and we need it loud and clear. (and- that is A. O. K.! )

But- when work is done quietly and not with SCREAMING headlines, we sometimes miss it.

Silly us! WAKE UP EVERYONE…. It’s a new (Jewish) year ! And our President and his team (and YES, our CONGRESS) have done, are doing and WILL continue to do extraordinary work in connection with America’s best friend: the State of Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Killing each Taliban soldier costs $50 Million

The Pentagon will not tell the public what it costs to locate, target and kill a single Taliban soldier because the price-tag is so scandalously high that it makes the Taliban appear to be Super-Soldiers. As set out in this article, the estimated cost to kill each Taliban is as high as $100 million, with a conservative estimate being $50 million. A public discussion should be taking place in the United States regarding whether the Taliban have become too expensive an enemy to defeat.

Last week, the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights released a comprehensive report detailing its findings regarding the May, 2010, Israeli attack on the six-ship flotilla attempting to deliver humanitarian aid to Israel-blockaded Gaza. The report has been largely ignored in the American media despite the fact (or, more accurately: because) it found that much of the Israeli force used "was unnecessary, disproportionate, excessive and inappropriate and resulted in the wholly avoidable killing and maiming of a large number of civilian passengers"; that "at least six of the killings can be characterized as extra-legal, arbitrary and summary executions"; and that Israel violated numerous international human rights conventions, including the Fourth Geneva Conventions.

Iran ready to help nab 9/11 perpetrators

The Iranian chief executive urged the United States to respond to hundreds of questions that still remain unanswered regarding the 9/11 attacks.

He emphasized that the US started a game in order to "attack our region," adding that Washington seeks to plunder regional assets and dominate the entire region.

President Ahmadinejad urged the United States to identify and execute the rogue elements involved in the 9/11 attacks that killed 3,000 people and declared, "We are ready to help Washington arrest them if it supplies us with the evidence."

Despite torrential rain outside and flash-flood warnings across the area, the couple arrives to shop. Tracy Young says they've been doing this midnight run on the last day of every month for so long now that they're on a first-name basis with Gloria, their cashier.

"It's been about a year. We used to go to Bloom, and then we found out we were saving more coming here," Tracy Young says. At a stroke or two after midnight they begin unloading their carts at the checkout. Tracy says they set aside $500 for groceries a month. With five kids, the money they get never lasts until the next monthly check.

"It's usually about a week and a half," she says. "We try to figure out what we need to do about a week and a half before the end of the month."

Guatemalan STD medical experiments were just one crime in a long history of medical-government collusion to use humans as guinea pigs

This wasn't some bizarre, rare event. It was a reflection of the way the U.S. government has consistently conspired with the medical industry to test drugs on innocent victims and find out what happens.

Feds deploy mobile X-ray fleet to radiate, scan Americans

The encroaching Big Brother nightmare has escalated even further with a recent announcement that the U.S. government has purchased mobile X-ray vans to scan people and vehicles at sporting events, road stops and even at random. The initiative is part of alleged counter-terror efforts that include improving the ability to detect bombs, weapons and other contraband that may potentially be used in a terrorist attack.

TYT: X-Ray Van Sees Through Homes


I have a few questions:

1- How long do they sit in front of a residence to spy with x-rays?

2- How long does the exposure to x-rays increase the rate of cancer to the recipients?

3- Do they target people of known dissidence or racial groups?

4- Does the community cancer rate increase in areas these vans are used in?

5- Does big Pharmacia have an investment or interest in promoting this type of surveillance?

6- How can a government restrained by constitutional rules pertaining to rights and privacy, justifies this type of invasive espionage upon citizens without due process?

7- Is this a new form of public weapon, a targeted cancer van?

8- Should I paint my house with lead paint, just to have some privacy from a government gone mad? - kdtroxel

Rick Sanchez suggesting that CNN and the rest of the media is run by Jewish people.I'm telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they -- the people in this country who are Jewish -- are an oppressed minority? Yeah. [sarcastically]

Obama uses Weekly Address to lobby for Israeli firm BrightSource

So much for American ingenuity.

While the project -- supported by the US government will apparently create jobs in the US (it sounds like they are mostly temporary construction jobs) -- Obama did not disclose that BrightSource has its roots and main facilities in Israel, and as well as creating jobs in California, the US government might be directly subsidizing jobs in, and technology transfer to Israel.

Students Forced To Wear Radio Frequency IDs At Multiple Schools

Big brother has taken it to a new level, outfitting student Ids with tracking devices at Santa Fe Junior High and Santa Fe High School. Minus a few high profile shootings, schools are generally known as a safe environment for our children. Why then are these schools outfitted school ids with tracking devices that must be worn at all times?

Are our students going to school or prison? What is the threat that requires such drastic measures? How many more schools plan on implementing these Orwellian “security” measures?

Hidden wounds: Soldiers suffer from the trauma of war

Hidden wounds: Soldiers suffer from the trauma of war
By Greg Barnes
Staff writer
A Rand Corp. study found that nearly one in five soldiers will suffer from mental health problems caused by the trauma of war and the stress of multiple deployments.
That's an alarming statistic for anywhere in America. But it could have far-reaching consequences in Cumberland County, where most of the 50,000 soldiers based at Fort Bragg live. This year, almost all of them are home at once for one of the few times since Sept. 11, 2001.

The fact that a 19-year-old American citizen was one of the dead — among those whom the report concluded was “summarily executed” by the Israelis — makes the U.S. Government’s silence here all the more appalling. One of the prime duties of a government is to safeguard the welfare of its own citizens. It’s inconceivable for most governments in the world to remain silent in the face of formal findings that a foreign nation “summarily executed” one of its own citizens.

Many of these are listed with original and credible news clips on the matter, as well as documentaries.

America’s homeland insecurity

Paul J. Balles argues that the United States’ ill-defined “war on terror” poses a real and present danger to US civil liberties, as evidenced by US Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s exhortation that “homeland security begins with hometown security” and hometown security begins with locally-based observations of “suspicious” activity.

US may issue warning on public places in Europe

The Associated Press has learned the Obama administration is considering a broad warning for U.S. citizens to avoid public places in Europe due to new al-Qaida threats.

Such a move could have significant implications for European tourism.

U.S. officials told the AP on Saturday that the State Department may issue a travel warning as early as Sunday advising Americans to stay away from European tourist sites, transportation hubs and other facilities because of new threat information.


The economy in Europe is not bad enough yet!

U.S. apologizes for Guatemala STD experiments

U.S. government medical researchers intentionally infected hundreds of people in Guatemala, including institutionalized mental patients, with gonorrhea and syphilis without their knowledge or permission more than 60 years ago.

Many of those infected were encouraged to pass the infection onto others as part of the study.

About one third of those who were infected never got adequate treatment.

On Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius offered extensive apologies for actions taken by the U.S. Public Health Service.

"The sexually transmitted disease inoculation study conducted from 1946-1948 in Guatemala was clearly unethical," according to the joint statement from Clinton and Sebelius. "Although these events occurred more than 64 years ago, we are outraged that such reprehensible research could have occurred under the guise of public health. We deeply regret that it happened, and we apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices."


"This shows that the USA govt. has a long history of illegal medical experimentation upon the populations of the world. Right now, every American is also partaking in illegal experimentation with modified food (GM), fluoridation of the water, monosodium glutamate, high fructose corn syrup, and aspartame. These substances have extensive evidence that they are unhealthy for human consumption, but industry buries this evidence with private funded counter studies and massive disinformation advertisements. Don't take my word for it, research these substances online and disregard the propaganda there that tells you different. For a healthier you." -- kdtroxel

We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well," and that "Sanchez had gone on Pete Dominick's Sirius XM show to promote his new book, "Conventional Idiocy." While on air, he called Stewart a "bigot," implied that CNN is controlled by Jews and that the network passed him over for promotion because he's Latino."

American foreign policy explained, refuted in “Good Will Hunting” 2-minute video

*hyperlinks and video at source*

Matt Damon grew-up as a neighbor of famed American historian, Howard Zinn, author of best-selling, A people’s history of the United States, that explains US history and foreign policy as a competition between American ideals and lust for oligarchic power. In the linked two-minute clip on the left, Damon’s character in Good Will Hunting nails and then buries the oligarch’s argument (adult language).

The only addition I have to Matt’s character’s argument: the increase in domestic oil prices (and others) is also a function of Wall Street “trades” designed to benefit traders and parasitize consumers.

Bankers Broke The Economy And Got Rich Doing It

Today’s absurd William Cohan column actually argues that we don’t need consumer protections in banking—nevermind the subprime explosion, the $8 trillion dollar housing bubble or the 1.2 million foreclosures expected this year. Nevermind the $38 billion in overdraft fees the banking industry reaped in 2009, or the ridiculous fine-print on credit cards. Nope, in William Cohan’s crazy world, the mortgage crisis was basically a problem caused by idiot consumers who—according to Cohan– don’t even deserve basic legal protections.

10:10 backpeddles; tries to prevent spread of embarrassing "exploding kids" video.

10:10 has withdrawn the film from circulation and striven mightily but unsuccessfully to prevent sceptics uploading it again to YouTube. They also apologised for “missing the mark” with it. The sceptics, of course, are delighted, having been handed a perfect propaganda piece. Certainly, the film says everything about the vicious and hysterical destructiveness of the eco-left and nothing about climate scepticism. But what interests me - exerts a fascination, really - is where this destructiveness comes from. For we must assume that the kind of people who involve themselves in such extremism are the same kind that populate anti-racism, and the same kind of people who have availed themselves historically of opportunities for violence against dissent.
