Kyrgyzstan's new leader tackles challenging job

Otunbayeva -- a former Soviet official, United Nations representative, Kyrgyz ambassador to the United States and United Kingdom, and and Kyrgyz foreign minister -- is not a newcomer to this business. A short, unpretentious woman, it's clear the weight on her shoulders is intense. She's working long hours, taking no time off.

Her immediate challenge is dealing with the deposed Kyrgyz president, Kurmanbek Bakiyev, in hiding in the southern part of the country. She has called on him to resign. He has refused. She has offered him free passage out of the country. He hasn't responded.

AFRICOM Backs Bloodshed in Central Africa

The eastern Congo remains awash in bloodshed due to western mining companies and their proxy armies, the military regimes of Paul Kagame (Rwanda), Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), and Joseph Kabila (DRC), all hidden behind reams of western newsprint blaming Congolese victims for their own suffering.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When it comes to potential resources to be exploited by the West, Africa has absolutely become the new Middle East, with various foreign governments scrambling for position in terms of taking the spoils

Home Free: No Worries for Dr K as Complicity is Revealed

Poor old Henry Kissinger. All that botheration, all those lies, all the years of gut-churning anxiety about scandal, even prosecution -- and for what? Mere complicity in state murder of foreigners carried out by a foreign government? Why, nowadays, we have U.S. presidents openly ordering the murder of American citizens, and nobody bats an eye. There is no scandal, no prosecution -- there is not even any debate. It's just a fact of life, ordinary, normal, unchangeable: the sun rises in the east, cows eat grass, rain is wet, American presidents murder people. What's the big deal?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking at this man and his utterly criminal past, one has to come to the uncomfortable and Orwellian realization that the Nobel Peace Prize tends to go to some of the worst perpetrators of mass murder on this planet, including the award of that prize to America's current President.

Gaza’s fuel and electric shortage threatens repeat sewage tsunami

For the past week, an average of 2 million gallons of sewage water per day has poured from the plant’s cement-reinforced sewage treatment "lagoons" (see picture) into two of the three overflow cesspools, according to plant operators. As a result of yesterday’s electric blackout, 6.5 million gallons was redirected to the cesspools in a single day. Water levels appear to be about three feet high in some places. The third and largest cesspool, which contained more than 660 million gallons of treated sewage before it was drained in August of 2009, remains empty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli government is keenly aware of what water-borne illnesses can do to a population, particularly to children and the medically fragile elderly.

This is simply one component in Israel's multi-layered "Final Solution" for Gazan Palestinians, which will end in complete Israeli annexation and forced expulsion of all Gazan Palestinians.

IDF order will enable mass deportation from West Bank

A new military order aimed at preventing infiltration will come into force this week, enabling the deportation of tens of thousands of Palestinians from the West Bank, or their indictment on charges carrying prison terms of up to seven years.

Until now, Israeli civil courts have occasionally prevented the expulsion of these three groups from the West Bank. The new order, however, puts them under the sole jurisdiction of Israeli military courts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so it begins; the complete annexation of Gaza, the West Bank, and East Jerusalem, coupled with forced expulsion of Palestinians from their homes forever.

The Inflicted Wounds of America's War Machine: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Infertility

Since 20 percent live sperm is considered to be the beginning of infertility, Israel will be sterile in less than 10 years at this rate of decline. The estimated 7 million Israeli Jews will have no more children soon after that. This catastrophic development has already occasioned legislative hearings in Israel’s Knesset. The hearings were covered by Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Israeli sperm concentration is just an example of what is happening to human sperm all over the Middle East and Central Asia, by the choice and force of will of successive U.S. presidents.

The American war machine has consequences. PTSD is just one of them. The poison gas cannot be contained, undone or recalled. There is no antidote; there is no cure. There is no escape.

A fair cop

As detective senior constable Glen McNamara, he was stationed at Kings Cross in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was a time and a place that was to become notorious in the history of the NSW Police.

There he found corrupt officers who routinely protected criminals in return for cash. But unlike many of his colleagues at the time who allowed themselves to be corrupted or at least turned a blind eye, McNamara didn't buy into the dirty-cop culture.

On his own initiative, he began gathering evidence to expose the flourishing criminality – and was then betrayed by the people around him he trusted most.

Activists? Action Against Censorship Not Just a Gag

One of the organisers of the protest and member of Pirate Party Australia, Simon Frew, said. "I think it is outrageous that the government has the audacity to force this filter on a supposedly free society. This is the sort of censorship you would expect of China or Iran, and it is being roundly condemned by the US State Department and Google for good reason."

The $2.3 Trillion State and Local Government Debt Monster – California Pension Systems on Unsupportable Path with $500 Billion Projected Shortfall. CalPERS, CalSTRS, and UCRS.

Much of the focus on government debt over the past few years has revolved around the federal government. No doubt, this is a stunningly large amount. Yet the government has the ability to finance this debt through the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve with a buffet of choices. You have direct bailouts to Wall Street, quantitative easing, and systematically dismantling the U.S. dollar. But one issue that is rising to the top is that of state and local government debt. States do not have the ability to print money at the whim of any central banker. And the state and local government debt market is up to a whopping $2.3 trillion. At this point, trillion is the new billion.

Occupied Washington DC

As a visitor to our nation's capital, I cannot tell you how disconcerting it is to step off the metro and find yourself face to face with a F-35 fighter jet. Where you would normally expect to find ads for cell phones or museum exhibitions, Washington's subway, the second busiest in the country, instead displays full color backlit billboards for some of the most deadly – and expensive – weapons systems ever produced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing that will guarantee the safety of American citizens is for the American government to stop mucking about in other peoples' countries, as though those countries' resources only belong to the US, and not to the people sitting on top of them.

Of course, that would be logical.

Blowback in Kyrgyzstan

The timing of this week's revolt in Kyrgyzstan, making headlines around the world, is telling. On Thursday the son and heir apparent of ousted president Kurmanbek Bakiyev, Maksim, was scheduled to speak at an economic forum in Washington. The meeting has been postponed indefinitely, and something tells me it may not be re-scheduled any time soon. As the Guardian reported today, interim opposition spokesperson and former Kyrgyz ambassador the United States, Roza Otunbayeva, said of the outgoing president: "His business is finished in Kyrgyzstan … in essence people were simply fed up with the previous regime, and with its repressive, tyrannical and abusive behaviour. They want to build democracy here."

America's Imperial Design. Prompt Global Strike: World Military Superiority Without Nuclear Weapons

On April 8 American and Russian presidents Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev signed a new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) agreement in the Czech capital of Prague to reduce their respective nation's nuclear arsenals and delivery systems (subject to ratification by the U.S. Senate and the Russian Duma.

More ominously, though, Washington is forging ahead with a replacement for the nuclear sword and shield - for blackmail and for deterrence - with a non-nuclear model that could upset the previous "balance of terror" arrangement that has been a criminal nightmare for six decades, but for sixty years without a massive missile war.

How the CIA is Welcoming Itself Back Onto American University Campuses

For those who lived through the dramatic revelations of the congressional inquiries in the 1970s, documenting the CIA’s routine involvement in global and domestic atrocities, it made sense to construct institutional firewalls between an agency so deeply linked with these actions and educational institutions dedicated to at least the promise of free inquiry and truth. But the last dozen years have seen retirements and deaths among academics who had lived through this history and had been vigilant about keeping the CIA off campus; furthermore, with the attacks of 9/11 came new campaigns to bring the CIA back onto American campuses.

RICHARD DAWKINS, the atheist campaigner, is planning a legal ambush to have the Pope arrested during his state visit to Britain “for crimes against humanity”.

Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author, have asked human rights lawyers to produce a case for charging Pope Benedict XVI over his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church.

Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, threatens to block Nato offensive

The president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, has cast doubt over Nato’s planned summer offensive against the Taliban in the southern province of Kandahar, as more than 10,000 American troops pour in for the fight.

Karzai threatened to delay or even cancel the operation — one of the biggest of the nine-year war — after being confronted in Kandahar by elders who said it would bring strife, not security, to his home province.

America Blowback in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan, like Bolivia at one time, is hardly the only such small, democracy-deficient, country with some manner of "strategic relationship" that fits in to larger US geopolitical concerns – in fact it may be the rule. But the unexpected swiftness with which an unpopular regime was swept aside, and the potentially seismic impact it has on the US war effort in Afghanistan – is a good reminder of the inevitable breaking point produced by a US foreign policy semantically dedicated to human rights – that looks the other way while "strategic allies" loot their countries' assets, murder their journalists, and send troops out to gun people down in the streets.

Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, threatens to block Nato offensive

The president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, has cast doubt over Nato’s planned summer offensive against the Taliban in the southern province of Kandahar, as more than 10,000 American troops pour in for the fight.

Karzai threatened to delay or even cancel the operation — one of the biggest of the nine-year war — after being confronted in Kandahar by elders who said it would bring strife, not security, to his home province.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How Karzai intends to delay or cancel the operation is a really good question, but the fact that he even made that statement is a very clear indication that Karzai has perhaps had a moment of clarity about the long-term effects of the US/NATO occupation.

This was is, and has always been, unwinnable militarily, 9 horrendously bloody years on.

At the end of the day, the US and NATO will, at some point, have to declare victory, and come home; the only other alternative is killing every Afghan man, woman, and child left standing.

That potential early exit of US and NATO troops may very well have to be before the pipelines can be installed with which to control Eurasian oil.

This scenario has the US and NATO panicked, because this was one of the two outcomes which were to have been accomplished during the occupation (the other being the control of the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely).

If Karzai has gotten it into his head that foreign troops must leave sooner rather than later (unless he gets "neutralized" by the West, which is a very definite possibility at this point), he will do that to achieve the best reconciliation possible with all factions of Afghan society, including the Taliban.

At that point, the US is going to have to negotiate with whatever government is left standing for the rights to the pipelines, just as George W. Bush was doing with the Taliban as late as August of 2001.

That administration thought that the price demanded by the Taliban was "too high". Then, we had 9/11, followed by the invasion and occupation of this country, which has left the actual installation of those pipelines no closer to reality than it was in August of 2001.

Canceled Netanyahu trip spotlights Israel nukes

Israel's official policy of "nuclear ambiguity" — neither confirming nor denying that it has nuclear weapons — has long been a cornerstone of its military deterrence. But officials and experts from various countries, in addition to one well-known Israeli whistle-blower, have all said the truth is not ambiguous at all: That Israel has dozens, perhaps hundreds, of nuclear bombs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This about-face had absolutely nothing to do with Israeli nukes, but everything to do with US aid.

Under the Symington Amendment, and the Glenn Act, the US cannot give aid to any country with a nuclear weapons program which is not a signatory to the NNPT, and which will not allow inspection of its nuclear sites.

As originally reported by Mordechai Vannunu in the late 90, and later confirmed by former Israeli Prime Minister Olmert and former US President Carter, Israel does have nuclear weapons, but refuses to be a signatory to the NNPT, and refuses inspections of its nuclear facilities.

Therefore, every taxpayer dollar of the 3 billion dollars in aid sent to Israel annually is illegal, under US law.

By professing "nuclear ambiguity", it's a nice little gravy train Israel has going with this, isn't it, while US homeless Veterans sleep in our streets?!?

Kyrgyzstan's interim government warned Sunday it could use force against ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev, raising tensions in the Central Asian state vital to US operations in Afghanistan.

"The interim government is prepared to use force in the event that Bakiyev attempts to destabilise the situation," said Omurbek Tekebayev, a deputy head of the interim government said on national radio.

"Bakiyev must resign, and announce his decision to the people," added Tekebayev, a leader of the anti-Bakiyev forces that have seized power in the former Soviet republic, which is home to a US air base.

Now that the horrors of Depleted Uranium are being revealed to the world, we can expect for apologists to begin moving into the next phase of damage control within the coming months.

The Great Banking Scam

Who do the banks owe money to? Are those hedge funds affiliated with
the very banks that were bailed out? Prof. Chossudovsky explains. He
emphasizes the bailouts will not help the crisis, but will exacerbate
it. He explains that to pay for Obama's budget defecits, public roads
and parks will be sold off to private companies and banks, who will
charge user fees to citizens, and that these user fees will be used to
pay back the bailout money to the government. In short, the government
is helping the banks finance their own debt. He also says that bailed
out banks are using the bailout money to buy up assets in the real
economy ( such as industry, tech, & airline stocks) at rock bottom
prices, which will dramatically change the ownership structure in

Military jet flyover during Fresno Tea Party speech 4/10/10


Synchronicity?

FRESNO, California -- Two military jets just "happen" to fly directly over Chukchansi Park Stadium during a Tea Party speech on April 10, 2010. Coincidentally, the speaker just happened to be saying: " ... I know that sounds tough, but you need to listen to Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine and Samuel Adams. They would tell you that we are living in tyranny right now!" The speaker then looked up at the jets, paused for a few seconds and said: "Look at that."

The Cover-Ups That Exploded

U.S. ground troops arrive on the scene, report the presence of wounded children. "Well, it's their fault for bringing their kids into a battle," one pilot tells the other. There are further sniggers as a U.S. armored vehicle rolls up. "I think they just drove over a body," one of the pilots cackles.

One disgraceful exchange discloses a brutal order to the U.S. ground troops not to take the wounded children to the nearest military hospital, thus condemning them to the long waits and understaffed, under-equipped Baghdad civilian hospitals. It clearly shows the culpability of the next command echelon, which is just as great as that of the pilots.

The children were being driven to school, the so called battle was brought to them by the scum in the helicopter.

Freedom and free market competition outperforms government monopoly every time.

Thai Army Pulls Back From Protest Clashes; 15 Dead

BANGKOK (AP) - Thai soldiers and police fought pitched battles Saturday night with anti-government demonstrators in streets enveloped in tear gas, but troops later retreated and asked protesters to do the same. Fifteen people were killed, including a Japanese journalist, and more than 650 wounded, according to hospital officials.

Most of Saturday's fighting took place around Democracy Monument, which is near one of the encampments of the Red Shirt protesters. But it spread to the Khao San Road area, a favorite of foreign backpackers.

The Thai are fighting for democracy.

US Moves From Nuclear Arms to Conventional Missiles With Global Reach

While President Barack Obama speaks overseas of his vision of a world without nuclear weapons, his military commanders at home are quietly accelerating a programme to develop and deploy a new class of conventional intercontinental ballistic missiles which will have the capacity to strike targets anywhere in the world within an hour.

While the effort to develop the new missile capability, called Prompt Global Strike, began in the late 1990s and through the Bush years, President Obama has expanded its budget with hopes that it can be added to US military's array of options by the middle of this decade. First prototype tests will be carried out by the Air Force next month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This move doesn't make the world, or the US, more safe; it makes the world more dangerous, particularly if these weapons cannot be distinguished from nuclear weapons by other countries.

ECESG Slams Threats Against Activists Participating In Gaza Solidarity Ships

The European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza (ECESG) strongly denounced threats made against activists who intend to participate in the upcoming convoy of solidarity ship heading to the besieged and improvised Gaza Strip.

500 peace activists, including European parliamentarians, are planning to said to Gaza.

The campaign stated that the threats will not be able to foil the efforts of human rights activists to break the siege on Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the Israeli government: threats and intimidation will not work with these people. It is simply making the Israeli government look more like a rogue nation than it already is.

And any attempt to make martyrs out of them will backfire in your face like a cheap trick cigar, and even more sharply focus the world's attention on your continuing immoral siege of Gaza.

Can the US Triumph in the Drug-Addicted War in Afghanistan? Opium, the CIA and the Karzai Administration

Perhaps the best example of such CIA influence via drug traffickers today is in Afghanistan itself, where those accused of drug trafficking include President Karzai’s brother, Ahmed Wali Karzai (an active CIA asset), and Abdul Rashid Dostum (a former CIA asset).4 The drug corruption of the Afghan government must be attributed at least in part to the U.S. and CIA decision in 2001 to launch an invasion with the support of the Northern Alliance, a movement that Washington knew to be drug-corrupted.

In this way the U.S. consciously recreated in Afghanistan the situation it had created earlier in Vietnam.
