Pfizer Vaccine Killed 11 Children, Disabled Dozens of Others

U.S. drugmaker Pfizer hired investigators to find evidence of corruption against Nigeria’s attorney general to convince him to drop legal action against the company over a drug trial involving children, the Guardian newspaper reported, citing U.S. diplomatic cables made public by WikiLeaks.

Nigeria’s Kano state sued the world’s largest drugmaker in May 2007 for $2 billion over testing of the meningitis drug Trovan. State authorities said the tests killed 11 children and left dozens disabled.'


Shoppers Shunning Credit Cards

Illinois-based TransUnion says the lowest percentage of shoppers in the history of a survey used credit cards for purchases during the Thanksgiving weekend.

The use of credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard fell 11 percent in the third quarter from a year earlier, The New York Times reported.

Many Americans want to avoid a big credit card debt after the holidays.'


FAA Loses Track of 119,000 Aircraft

The Federal Aviation Administration is missing key information on who owns one-third of the 357,000 private and commercial aircraft in the U.S. — a gap the agency fears could be exploited by terrorists and drug traffickers.

The records are in such disarray that the FAA says it is worried that criminals could buy planes without the government's knowledge, or use the registration numbers of other aircraft to evade new computer systems designed to track suspicious flights. It has ordered all aircraft owners to re-register their planes in an effort to clean up its files.'


An Irishman Abroad Tells it Like It Is !!

Bailed out Irish Bankers get £34 Million in Bonuses

Fury was mounting last night as it emerged that Irish bankers will pocket multi-million pound bonuses after being bailed out by British taxpayers.

The Allied Irish Bank will hand out £34million in bonuses for its executives this month, despite being on the brink of another rescue package.

Britain stumped up £3.2billion to save Ireland from collapse last month as part of a £72.1billion European bail-out.

The handout comes at a time when millions of hard-pressed Britons are struggling with the Government’s austerity measures to reduce its own budget deficit.'


Homeland Security Recruiting Neighborhood Busybodies as Informants

There were the infamous Gestapo, Stazi and Red Guard. They all sought and maintained civilian armies of snitches to help their rogue governments maintain absolute power. These government thugs wanted any information they could use against the victims they selectively targeted.

Today we have the Department of Homeland Security that is quickly stepping into this role in the United States. They are massively expanding their authority, reach and budget to smash dissent, and any resistance to government repression and violation of our Civil Rights.

If you have not noticed, our government has suspended the Fourth Amendment in the name of anti-terrorism. If you haven’t noticed, It’s our own government that has become the terrorist.'


Morality is Modified in the Lab

Scientists have shown they can change people's moral judgements by disrupting a specific area of the brain with magnetic pulses.

They identified a region of the brain just above and behind the right ear which appears to control morality.

And by using magnetic pulses to block cell activity they impaired volunteers' notion of right and wrong.

The small Massachusetts Institute of Technology study appears in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.'

The British Army’s Forward Reconnaissance Regiment Go Through The Looking-Glass?

The formation of the British army’s Force Reconnaissance Regiment was announced by Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon on April 5th 2004, as part of the UK army’s ‘Special Forces.’ It would focus, Hoon explained, on ‘combating terrorism’. That was one month before the BBC’s Panorama program, which scripted the first outline of what London would suffer a year later on 7/7.

The FRR would go ‘deep undercover’ for its reconnaissance, behind ‘enemy’ lines. On April 6, 2005, the FRR came into existence, a mere three months before 7/7. It appears as a secretive organisation above the law, with a license to kill – and with bomb making skills. Its insignia shows a sword being shoved up through a helmeted head.
Let’s take a closer look, at the little that has come out. Our main areas of concern are:

•The assassination of Jean Charles de Menezes
•The gunning down of two young men as ‘terrorists’ at Canary Wharf at 10.30 am on July 7th
•The fabrication of bomb equipment in Basra
•The startling rescue of FRR agents once captured in Basra.'


Why Are Wars Not Being Reported Honestly? by John Pilger

In the US Army manual on counterinsurgency, the American commander General David Petraeus describes Afghanistan as a "war of perception . . . conducted continuously using the news media". What really matters is not so much the day-to-day battles against the Taliban as the way the adventure is sold in America where "the media directly influence the attitude of key audiences". Reading this, I was reminded of the Venezuelan general who led a coup against the democratic government in 2002. "We had a secret weapon," he boasted. "We had the media, especially TV. You got to have the media."

Never has so much official energy been expended in ensuring journalists collude with the makers of rapacious wars which, say the media-friendly generals, are now "perpetual". In echoing the west's more verbose warlords, such as the waterboarding former US vice-president Dick Cheney, who predicated "50 years of war", they plan a state of permanent conflict wholly dependent on keeping at bay an enemy whose name they dare not speak: the public.'


Arrogance, Incompetence and a Shameful Bid to Hide the Truth About the Bank Collapse that Nearly Ruined Britain

The refusal to make public the report into the catastrophic failure of the Royal Bank of Scotland tells us a great deal about the arrogance and hopeless judgment of the City's financial regulator.

While the Financial Services Authority (FSA) often takes a hammer to deal with minor miscreants, it is using kid gloves when it comes to dealing with the scandalous behaviour of bosses who brought down Britain's biggest financial group and which led to taxpayers being exposed to potential losses of £250billion.

The regulator's egregious claim that the report into the bank's collapse is too technical and incomplete to be published is frankly preposterous.
The truth is that the FSA is morally bound to let taxpayers know what went wrong and why, for example, its own staff spent £228,000 on Christmas parties at the height of the most damaging financial crisis for a century and why they are still paid exorbitant salaries.'


The Secret Dirty Deal Struck to Secure the 2012 Olympics

What we did not know is that London is, according to these contracts, required to provide the IOC and the ‘Olympic Family’ (including the Committee members, staff and officials) with 40,000 hotel-room bookings for the entire duration of the Games.

This includes 1,800 four and five-star hotel rooms for the IOC elite. Six Park Lane hotels have been booked out for the ­duration of the Games, including the Dorchester, the Grosvenor and the Hilton.

The 40,000-room booking does not, of course, include accommodation for the competitors themselves — they are having an Olympic Village built for them at a cost to taxpayer of £325 million.

Nor is any accommodation being reserved for spectators. On the evidence of the documents, visitors to the Games will probably find that any hotel within a 50-mile radius of London is already fully booked by the third assistant director of the Togolese handball federation and his extensive support staff.'


Halliburton May Pay $500 million to Keep Cheney out of Prison: Report

Oilfield services company Halliburton is in negotiations with the Nigerian government to keep its former CEO, Dick Cheney, out of prison, according to a news report.
Sources inside Nigeria's Economic and Financial Crimes Commission told GlobalPost this week that a settlement keeping the charges against Cheney out of court could cost as much as $500 million.

Nigeria filed charges against Cheney this week in an investigation of alleged bribery estimated at $180 million. Prosecutors named both Halliburton and KBR in the charges, as well as three European oil and engineering companies -- Technip SA, EniSpa, and Saipem Construction.

The charges allege that engineering contractor KBR, until 2007 a subsidiary of Halliburton, was among companies that paid bribes to secure a $6 billion contract for a natural gas plant. KBR pleaded guilty to the same bribes in a US court in 2009, and agreed to pay a $382 million fine. The Nigerian charges appear to stem from the US case -- though, in that trial, Cheney was never directly charged.'


Obama’s Tax Windfall for the Rich

The deal worked out between President Obama and the Republicans to extend Bush-era tax cuts for the richest Americans is the latest demonstration of the dictatorship America’s financial aristocracy wields over the government and its policies.

The agreement will extend $150 billion in income tax savings to the wealthy over the next two years and hundreds of billions more in the form of cuts to taxes on corporate profits, capital gains, and the estates of multimillionaires.

Obama has capitulated to the demands of the financial elite, expressed openly in the solid Republican support for continuing the tax cut for the wealthy, despite large Democratic majorities in both houses of the outgoing "lame duck" Congress.'


Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff: White House Cabinet Member Suggested Killing an American Service Man to Justify War on Iraq

Student Nearly ‘Killed’ by British Police

Police attack on a 20-year-old student who was knocked unconscious with a police truncheon leaving him with bleeding on his brain has triggered an investigation.

The police attacked Alfie Meadows, a philosophy student at Middlesex University, during demonstrations against tuition fees rises outside Westminster Abbey when he tried to leave the scene of the protests where the police emerged to have erected cordons to prevent anyone from leaving, his mother said.

Meadows lost consciousness when being transferred to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital where he had to have a three-hour operation for brain bleeding.'


Ex-EU Leaders Urge Israel Sanctions

Criticizing the European Union's existing policy toward Israel, in a letter sent to European governments and EU institutions on Monday, former heads of states, ministers and heads of European organizations said Israel must be made to feel "the consequences" and face "a price tag" for breaking international law by expanding its Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

They have also urged European countries to recognize a free and independent Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with East al-Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital.

"EU will not recognize any changes to the June 1967 boundaries, and clarify that a Palestinian state should be in sovereign control over territory equivalent to 100 percent of the territory occupied in 1967, including its capital in East Jerusalem (al-Quds)," the letter asked EU foreign ministers to declare to Israel.'

Professor Paul Connett: Your Toxic Tap Water

Dr. Paul Connett, Professor of Chemistry at St. Lawrence University in New York, gives a damning interview on the history of water fluoridation, the collusion of major industries to put certified toxic waste into your drinking water, and why government health authorities refuse to conduct scientific studies into the dangers of fluoridation. After watching this video, you will never look at tap water the same way again.

Connett describes how he initially thought people who opposed fluoridation were “a bunch of whackos,” before conducting his own research which found that sodium fluoride was a toxic substance that contributed to a wide array of health defects. Heavy industry is barred from dumping this toxic waste into the sea by international law, but being able to sell it enables them to remove its hazardous characteristic and it becomes a product, explains Connett, polluting not only our water supply but also toothpaste and thousands of different foods.'


A Wall of Secrecy Around our Courts is Crumbling

Not only was the court secret, its decisions have been highly controversial. There have been more than 3,000 complaints from families about the manner in which the court has operated. Many have voiced resentment at the perceived assumption on the part of court officials that their intention is to defraud a vulnerable relative.

The court has considerable powers too. It has taken control of more than £3.2bn of assets, with some families complaining that it has paid out a derisory rate of interest while in control of these funds. It was this perception of injustice and unaccountable power that inspired The Independent to begin its campaign to challenge the secrecy of this court 18 months ago. It has been a long struggle, but the war is being won.'


The Israeli Culture Of Drinking Urine

Issa Qaraqe’e, the Palestinian Minister of Detainee Affairs, revealed that Israeli soldiers urinated on two Palestinian minors who they had kidnapped, then jailed, forced to drink urine from a toilet, tortured and filmed while they were completely naked.

Minister Qaraq’e said that lawyer Hibah Masalhah visited the kids Mohammed Tariq Abed El-Latif Mekhemar, 13 years old, and Mohammad Naser Ali Ridwan, 13 years old, at the Rimonim prison. After her visit she stated that the Israeli occupation soldiers had forced both kids, Mekhemar and Radwan, residents of Beit Ur in the district of Ramallah, to drink the urine from the toilet. The soldiers then urinated on their faces while laughing and mocking them, another soldier shot pictures of the kids while they were naked.'


Was Sam Cohen Behind the Most Immoral Weapon of All Time?

He was dumbstruck. As a young scientist with a degree in physics, Sam Cohen stood in the Nevada desert in 1945 and watched the fireworks as one of the world’s first nuclear bombs was tested. The earth shook with an almighty bang and the sky erupted.

A mushroom cloud billowed out above the top-secret site in the middle of nowhere. ‘Awesome,’ was all he, as a junior worker on the famed Manhattan Project, could mouth. The supremely destructive device would be used twice on Japan, with brute power and terror, to bring a swift end to World War II.

And in the years that followed, Cohen would become the architect of what many would see as an even more monstrous weapon.'


WikiLeaks Being Used to Justify 'Patriot Act' Legislation For Internet

Senator Mitch McConnell called Assange a "high-tech terrorist" on NBC's Meet the Press Sunday and said, "if it‘s found that Assange hasn’t violated the law, then the law should be changed."

Over the weekend, an insightful article by Zen Gardner exposed how WikiLeaks resembles an establishment creation. The article correctly pointed out that the WikiLeaks storyline was conforming nicely to the elite's problem-reaction-solution method, with the solution of more tyranny for our safety.

WikiLeaks is being used to bring in the agenda on so many levels, but most importantly by setting the precedent of shutting down websites for politically "dangerous" content. Gardner writes:

After all, if information is now the enemy, we must carefully police any and every aspect of this dangerous medium -- all for the safety and protection of 'we the people.''


London Battleground & Barricades: Anger as Student Fees Hike Approved

Treasury Blocks Legal Aid for Homeowners Facing Foreclosure

Some of those states, including Ohio, let Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner know as far back as this past spring that they wanted to use some of those funds to assist legal aid groups that help individual homeowners. Seems like a reasonable request--unlike the absurdity of handing over trillions of dollars to robo-signing, foreclosure-mad banks, no questions asked.

Treasury solicited the opinion of an outside law firm, Squire, Sanders & Dempsey. Never mind that the firm’s clients include BB&T Corporation and payday lender CNG Financial Corp. The firm said, in essence--sorry, no can do on the legal aid. Not permitted under the TARP.

Huh? Hold on a sec--is this the same TARP that granted the Treasury Secretary all those “extraordinary powers” to protect people’s home values, preserve home ownership, promote economic growth, etc.?'


Iran Placing Medium-Range Missiles in Venezuela; Can Reach the U.S

Iran is planning to place medium-range missiles on Venezuelan soil, based on western information sources[1], according to an article in the German daily, Die Welt, of November 25, 2010. According to the article, an agreement between the two countries was signed during the last visit o Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to Tehran on October19, 2010. The previously undisclosed contract provides for the establishment of a jointly operated military base in Venezuela, and the joint development of ground-to-ground missiles.

At a moment when NATO members found an agreement, in the recent Lisbon summit (19-20 November 2010), to develop a Missile Defence capability to protect NATO's populations and territories in Europe against ballistic missile attacks from the East (namely, Iran), Iran's counter-move consists in establishing a strategic base in the South American continent - in the United States's soft underbelly.'

Is Anti-Fed Feeling Going Mainstream?

Since the Fed last month announced plans to buy $600 billion in Treasury bonds in an effort to jolt the slumbering economy, small-government conservatives have gone ballistic. Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan has said the move could weaken the dollar, and Sarah Palin -- not usually cited as an authority on monetary policy -- has warned that the move will lead to rising prices, going so far as to invoke the hyper-inflation of 1920s Germany.

The attacks have been so intense that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke has launched a counter-offensive, going on "60 Minutes" to defend the asset purchases as a source of much-needed economic stimulus.'

Ron Paul to be Named Chair of the House Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy

Texas Congressman Ron Paul announced on Freedom Watch on Wednesday night, that he will be named the Chair of the House Subcommittee on Monetary Policy. Ron Paul stated during the interview “the Chairman of the Financial Services Committee, Spencer Bachus, has told me today verbally that I will be the Chairman of that subcommittee.” The Judge quickly joked that the “blood pressure is going up as we speak over at the Federal Reserve.”

This is a huge victory for friends of liberty as many, including Paul, believe the Federal Reserve is the root cause of the financial crisis. Paul has been one of the most outspoken critics of the Federal Reserve on Capitol Hill over the past 30 years. Paul introduced legislation last year to Audit the Fed (HR 1207) and had over 320 co-sponsors in the House. The bill was later stripped of its substance and a watered down version was included in the Financial Services Act that was passed into law in 2010.'

How the Animated Series G.I. Joe Predicted Today’s Illuminati Agenda

G.I. Joe is an iconic cartoon TV show that marked an entire generation of young boys during the 80s. Most fans still recall the main characters and the epic gun fights. But what about the storyline? A look at the TV series in today’s context is quite a strange experience: Many of Cobra’s “far-out” plots are actually happening today. Could G.I. Joe be a case of predictive programming? We will look at some G.I. Joe episodes describing the replacement of the US dollar and the usage of mind control on celebrities and civilians and see how they relate in today’s context.'


Police State USA: Building Public Acceptance for Airport Body Scanners

Senator Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) has introduced legislation criminalizing the distribution or recording of revealing images taken by airport full-body scanners. Violators would be subject to penalties of up to a year in prison and fines up to $100,000, or both. Although the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has said that images cannot be stored, transmitted, or printed and are deleted after being reviewed, it did admit in a February 2010 letter to House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) that the machines have some capability to store, print, record and export images “for testing, training, and evaluation” that is done at facilities away from airports.

Further, the US Marshall's Service admitted last summer in a letter to the Electronic Privacy Information Center, in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, that it had saved over 35,000 images recorded with a Brijot Gen 2 scanner at a security checkpoint of an Orlando, Florida courthouse. The letter also stated that “the USMS also tested a Millivision machine in the Federal Courthouse in the District of Columbia. However, that courthouse is no longer using the machine, which has been returned to Millivision; any images that may have been stored on that machine are therefore no longer under the agency's control",'


WikiLeaks Cables: Shell's Grip on Nigerian State Revealed

The oil giant Shell claimed it had inserted staff into all the main ministries of the Nigerian government, giving it access to politicians' every move in the oil-rich Niger Delta, according to a leaked US diplomatic cable.

The company's top executive in Nigeria told US diplomats that Shell had seconded employees to every relevant department and so knew "everything that was being done in those ministries". She boasted that the Nigerian government had "forgotten" about the extent of Shell's infiltration and was unaware of how much the company knew about its deliberations.

The cache of secret dispatches from Washington's embassies in Africa also revealed that the Anglo-Dutch oil firm swapped intelligence with the US, in one case providing US diplomats with the names of Nigerian politicians it suspected of supporting militant activity, and requesting information from the US on whether the militants had acquired anti-aircraft missiles.'

Cancun Climate Change Conference: Britain is Urged to Impose £15 Billion in Green Taxes

British taxpayers could pay an extra £600 per year in green taxes to help poor countries cope with the floods and droughts caused by climate change, Lord Stern has suggested.

The economist said the UK would have to contribute around £1.5 billion from 2020 to a new ‘green fund’, that is expected to be set up during global talks on climate change in Cancun this week.

The Treasury is unlikely to set up new mechanisms to raise such a small amount of cash.

Therefore it is better to raise ten times as much and use just ten per cent for the green fund. The rest can be used as the Government sees fit.'


The Death of Free Will

The last nail of so-called school reform is being struck in the coffin of traditional American education which made our nation the envy of the Free World and which produced famous scientists, engineers, mathematicians, writers, artists, musicians, doctors, etc.

The reform is not new. It started in the early 1900s when John D. Rockefeller, Jr.’s Director of Charity for the Rockefeller Foundation, Frederick T. Gates, set up the Southern Education Board. In 1913 the organization was incorporated into the General Education Board. These boards set in motion “the deliberate dumbing down of America”.'


Massive Dark Object 'Lurking on Edge of Solar System Hurling Comets at Earth'

A massive dark object may be lurking on the edge of our solar system, according to scientists.

Most comets that fly into the inner solar system seem to come from the outer region of the Oort cloud - a region of icy dust and debris left over from the birth of the solar system.

The cloud starts from a point about 93 billion miles from the Sun and stretches for around three light years and contains billions of comets, most of them small and hidden.

Now new calculations suggest a large object that is up to four times as big as Jupiter could be responsible for sending them in our direction.

The scientists have analysed the comets in the Oort cloud and deduced that 25 per-cent of them would need a nudge by a body of at least Jupiter size before they changed orbit.'

Surgeons Remove Verichip Planted Secretly

Last year we reported that Bob Boyce, the highly-revered inventor of ultra-efficient electrolysis systems and of a self-charging battery circuit (harnessing energy from the environment, possibly from zero point energy), had contracted terminal cancer and that the originating point was a VeriChip microchip that someone implanted in his right shoulder without his knowledge or permission.

He had a chip removed, but it turned out that another chip was still in there, implanted deeper, as confirmed by an X-ray.

He's lived with that one for a year, but finally had it removed yesterday at the Fannin Regional Hospital in Blue Ridge, Georgia.

The Fannin surgical staff took photos as the chip was removed from the tissue and placed in a specimen container, labeled "foreign body", and sealed by the surgeon. The blue color of the tissue is from a dye that was injected to mark cancerous cells.'


Just How Many Jobs Did the Stimulus Create?

'According to, the President's website designed to track the stimulus plan, the $800 Billion plus porkulous bill passed in February 2009 is responsible for 3,348,813 jobs.

That's correct The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 created exactly zero permanent jobs.'


The IRS Extortion of the American People

The “Internal Revenue Service” is a collection agency for the private, profit-making corporation that calls itself the Federal Reserve System. The fools who still send money to this private company can prove this by examining the backs of their canceled checks to the IRS. It will say “Pay to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.” It doesn’t say, “Pay to the US Treasury Department.” Why do you suppose that is? Your hard-earned money goes to a private company that has never been audited, that was created by foreign Zionists for their own gain. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is a private company, just like Goldman Sachs, both owned by pretty much the same people. See Lewis v. US (1982).

Aaron Russo, a producer of feature films, made a documentary film called “America: Freedom to Fascism.” Russo has since died and his film can be seen online for free. It is based on a simple question: “Is there a law that requires any private American to file a tax return or to pay income taxes?” The answer, as we all know, is no.'

Amid Censorship Efforts, US Announces Plans to Host World Press Freedom Day

Faced with growing efforts to censor the release of embarrassing information by WikiLeaks and armed with at best a tenuous grasp of the concept of irony, US State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley today announced that the federal government has won the right to host “World Press Freedom Day” in May of 2011, and that the event will be held in Washington DC.

In his official statement Crowley said the move would prove the US commitment to “expand press freedom and the free flow of information in this digital age,” but comes at a time when the State Department is not only championing the attempt to silence the release of classified cables showing a variety of crimes by officials.'

Iceland Exits Recession

Iceland famously agreed in a referendum to reject a scheme to repay most of its debts that were once worth 11 times its total national income.

In contrast to Ireland, Iceland's taxpayers refused to foot the bill for the debts accumulated by the banking sector. Bondholders were told to accept dramatic reductions in the value of repayments on bank debt after the sector borrowed beyond its means to fund ambitious investments abroad.

The return to growth is likely to put pressure on Irish politicians to explain why Dublin rejected a more radical restructuring of its debts and a departure from the eurozone.'


Critics Of Big Sis/Wal-Mart Spy Campaign Branded Insane

According to the driving force behind Big Sis’ creepy Wal-Mart spy campaign, if the state encouraging Americans to report each other to the authorities causes you unease, you’re insane, similar to how critics of informant programs were also branded mentally ill and persecuted in the former Soviet Union.

In what has been dubbed “the battle of Wal-Mart” by The New York Observer, the controversy over Big Sis Janet Napolitano’s announcement that Homeland Security messages encouraging shoppers to “report suspicious activity,” without telling them what constitutes suspicious activity, will play at Wal-Mart checkouts, has “set off a rebellion among the conspiracy-theory crowd, a number of whom are among the store’s core customers,” writes Aaron Gell.

S 510 Food Safety Bill is Still Alive and May Unleash a New Army of FDA Agents

The U.S. government wants to know where your greenhouse is. Under Senate Bill 510 -- which is now back in the hands of the U.S. Senate after the House hid an amendment in an appropriations bill and passed it last night -- American food producers would be required to register their facilities with the U.S. government. The feds, it seems, want a database of food growers so they know who to target for surprise inspections (show me your papers!).


Obama Administration Urges Armed Forces, Public School Children to Eat as Much Gulf Seafood as Possible

It seems that no matter how many times government officials try to convince the public that Gulf seafood is safe to eat, Americans simply are not buying it. So the Obama administration has resorted to pushing the stuff on the public sector, which includes the nation's prison systems, the military, and even public schools.

According to a recent report from The Times-Picayune, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus is pushing for America's armed forces to eat "as much Gulf seafood as possible." Mabus is allegedly President Obama's liaison for handling Gulf Coast recovery efforts, and he has recently spent a considerable amount of time consulting with Air Force, Army, and other division officials to convince them to buy more Gulf seafood to feed to servicemen.'


US to Hike 2011 Military Budget

The US House of Representatives has approved a bill that boosts the country's defense budget to nearly $160 billion for 2011.

The figure reflects a $31 billion hike in the country's military budget for the 2010 fiscal year, which is reportedly $128 billion. Now the official cost for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for almost the past decade has surpassed $1.1 trillion.

The bill needs to be passed by the Senate and then signed by US President Barack Obama to take effect, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.'


UN: Israel Obliged to Freeze Settlement

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has declared in a statement that Israel is obliged to freeze its settlement expansion in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The UN chief regrets that Tel Aviv has refused to extend its ten-month moratorium on illegal settlement construction in the West Bank that expired on September 26, a statement issued by Ban's spokesman said Wednesday.

The spokesman urged Tel Aviv to renew its freeze on settlement construction in the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem), framing it as an obligation that Israel is avoiding.

Israel must “fulfill its Roadmap obligation” to freeze all settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East al-Quds, the statement said.'

Assange Could Face Espionage Trial in US

Informal discussions have already taken place between US and Swedish officials over the possibility of the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange being delivered into American custody, according to diplomatic sources.

Mr Assange is in a British jail awaiting extradition proceedings to Sweden after being refused bail at Westminster Magistrates’ Court despite a number of prominent public figures offering to stand as surety.

His arrest in north London yesterday was described by the US Defence Secretary Robert Gates as “good news”, and may pave the way for extradition to America and a possible lengthy jail sentence.'


The Carmel Wildfire is Burning All Illusions in Israel

Four days after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced plans to place thousands of migrant workers in a prison camp deep in the Negev Desert because, as he claimed, they pose a "threat to the character of [the] country," a burning tree trunk fell into a bus full of Israeli Prison Service cadets, killing forty passengers. The tree was among hundreds of thousands turned to ash by the forest fire pouring across northern Israel, and which now threatens to engulf outskirts of Haifa, Israel’s third-largest city. Over the last four days, more than 12,300 acres have burned in the Mount Carmel area, a devastating swath of destruction in a country the size of New Jersey. While the cause of the fire has not been established, it has laid bare the myths of Israel’s foundation.'
