 Pakistan ‘exporting violence’, says US

Webmasters comment www.theaussiedigger.com And the US isn’t ? Pakistan better be very careful because the US is again trying to line it up for ” pre-emptive military intervention ” to save the world from “terrorism”. The US desperately wants to control central Asia and Pakistani nuclear weapons and this is the latest move on the giant US chess board to do so. If the US doesn’t want it’s Troops in Afghanistan targeted in a War it has declared it simply has to take them home. Of course that would not fit the grand designs of Washington. The US is just as much a terrorist State as those others it condemns. The difference is the US acts under the guise of “protecting democracy and the rights of people”. It should look to the huge erosion of it’s own civil liberties at home.

US taxpayers’ money wasted by the Government

The US economy is having tough times. While the country is $14.7 trillion dollars in debt, 9% of Americans are also without jobs.And while the US is supposed to withdraw from Afghanistan, a new prison on Bagram airforce base is due to be erected – at a cost of $ 25 to $ 100 million to house around 2,000 detainees. Where else are American taxpayers dollars going? How about $16.2 million towards a museum in Las Vegas dedicated to the mob. David Williams, president of Taxpayers Protection Alliance, explains.

Peter Schiff responds to Elizabeth Warren on producers

Warren says “the rest of us” pay for services such as police,
government schools, and firemen, but Schiff points out that it’s business that not only pays the majority of those taxes, it employs the people who are also paying (at gunpoint, if necessary) those taxes. Schiff also points out that wealthy business owners typically pay 40 to 50% of their wealth in taxes (federal income tax state income tax property taxes social secuirty & medicare taxes). If 50% isn’t a high enough rate, how high a rate would Warren advocate? Regarding how government protects us from “bands of marauders”, Schiff points out that wealthy businessmen such as himself could hire their own private army of firemen and police offers for far, far less that what the government requires business owners to pay in taxes.

Top Ten Armies in the World

Nearly every country in the world has its own army to protect its interests against internal and external enemies. The top ten armies of the world were chosen based on their military history, current operations and size of force as well as their reputation as a military force.

Particles found to break speed of light

A total of 15,000 beams of neutrinos — tiny particles that pervade the cosmos — were fired over a period of 3 years from CERN toward Gran Sasso 730 (500 miles) km away, where they were picked up by giant detectors.

Light would have covered the distance in around 2.4 thousandths of a second, but the neutrinos took 60 nanoseconds — or 60 billionths of a second — less than light beams would have taken.

To be technically correct, what Einstein’s theory of relativity said was that nothing could achieve the speed of light … from either direction. There is nothing in the theory that precludes particles traveling faster than light if they are created already traveling faster than the speed of light and can never slow down to sub-light (relative to us) velocities. Physicists have called these theoretical particles “Tachyons” and it may be that nutrinos are the first recognized Tachyons.

Turkey voices readiness for Israel war

In an interview with Charlie Rose, when Erdogan was asked if he saw the Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound flotilla that killed nine Turkish nationals as “a cause of war,” — as the premier had earlier said — Erdogan said “we will do that too if it becomes necessary,” Turkey’s Vatan newspaper reported on Thursday.

“As you know, Israel attacked three ships, one of which carried over 400 people from 33 countries, in international waters from sea and air. Such an attack in international waters is against international law,” Erdogan noted.

The Turkish premier reiterated that Israel should apologize to Turkey for the attack and pay compensation to the families of the victims.

Windows 8 secure boot would ‘exclude’ Linux

Computer scientists warn that proposed changes in firmware specifications may make it impossible to run “unauthorised” operating systems such as Linux and FreeBSD on PCs.Proposed changes to the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) firmware specifications would mean PCs would only boot from a digitally signed image derived from a keychain rooted in keys built into the PC. Microsoft is pushing to make this mandatory in a move that could not be overridden by users and would effectively exclude alternative operating systems, according to Professor Ross Anderson of Cambridge University and other observers.

HOW YOU BECAME A SLAVE TO THE BANKERS!

Then, in 1913, a corrupt Congress and a corrupt President changed the structure of the nation’s economy and stole your freedom to say “no”! The economic system was reverted to a mirror of that same system the nation fought a revolution to be free of. The power to issue money was taken away from the government and given to the bankers and from that day onward, ALL money in circulation was created as the result of a loan at interest from the bankers to the government, to business, and to the people. There is no exception. Every dollar paid in salary, spent to purchase food or gas, or paid in taxes, began as an interest bearing loan.

1930?s-Style Financial Meltdown Imminent

Simply put, the world has trillions upon trillions of excessive private debt financed by too many different currencies whose risk is allegedly mitigated by even more trillions of financial bets which in aggregate do not minimise the systemic risk one iota. This entire financial edifice, underwritten by tiny amounts of capital, has been created over three decades backed by the theory that markets do not make mistakes. Capitalism is best conceived and practised, runs the theory, by hunter-gatherer bankers and entrepreneurs owing no allegiance to the state or society.

Hong Kong Air Freight Falls 7.8 Percent

Sixth straight year-over-year decline comes as volume falls from July to August

Weak demand from Europe and the U.S. in August pulled Hong Kong International Airport’s traffic down 7.8 percent from the same month last year, the sixth consecutive month of decline.

Freight volume also fell 3.5 percent from July to August and the 319,000 metric tons was the lowest level since February, a troubling sign for the Asia gateway heading toward the peak fall shipping season.

Overall flight movements hit a high of 28,940, up 6.7 percent year-over-year during the month, but freighter operations fell 6.4 percent from a year ago and fell 3.5 percent from July.

An economic indicator you cannot spin away!

But he was challenged by the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, who said that U.S. leadership on the issue has failed and called for a new initiative involving Europe and Arab states to see the birth of a Palestinian state within a year.

Concerning Mondoweiss, Racism and Freedom of Speech

These are articles by Philip Weiss ( calls himself progressive Jew, and the motto of his website “Mondoweiss The War of Ideas in the Middle East” )

Quote from the website:

Mondoweiss is a news website devoted to covering American foreign policy in the Middle East, chiefly from a progressive Jewish perspective.

It has four principal aims:

To publish important developments touching on Israel/Palestine, the American Jewish community and the shifting debate over US foreign policy in a timely fashion.

To publish a diversity of voices to promote dialogue on these important issues.

To foster the movement for greater fairness and justice for Palestinians in American foreign policy.

To offer alternatives to pro-Zionist ideology as a basis for American Jewish identity.

Why Google Earth Can’t Show You Israel

With just one click, Google can bring the world—and a better understanding of far-away events—to your computer.

There is one entire country, however, that Google Earth won’t show you: Israel.

Not only have those abnormalities persisted for 20 years, but in some cases they’ve worsened.

Zelikow: 9/11 Master Criminal Appointed By Obama

Obama appoints 9/11 scriptwriter & master criminal Zelikow to Intelligence Advisory Board.

__________________________________________________

9-11: Yeah, okay, we admit there were explosions in the towers, but we can explain it. Really! Honest!!

A mix of sprinkling system water and melted aluminium from aircraft hulls likely triggered the explosions that felled New York’s Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, a materials expert has told a technology conference.

The reaction he is talking about is one in which hot aluminum will “steal” oxygen from water, leaving hydrogen gas. There are two problems with this theory, of course.

The first is the hydrogen gas is very light and floats upward even faster than helium. The ruins of the World Trade Towers were “porous” and as the smoke trails prove, there was a strong wind from the side. This means that hydrogen could not collect together anywhere in any amounts enough to cause an explosion, certainly not down in the basements, where some explosions were reported.

Second, even under the most ideal of circumstances of perfect mixture of hydrogen and oxygen, impossible in the natural atmosphere and under those conditions, hydrogen may burn fast but does not detonate. Recall the destruction of the Hindenburg. Huge fire, no “bang.”

So this latest official “explanation” is a desperate attempt to reconcile eyewitness reports and video recordings of explosions (like the one that initiates the collapse of building 7) with the rapidly collapsing official story.

William Rodriquez: 9/11 hero

Ironically, for his outstanding heroism on 9/11, Rodriquez received a special commendation for valor from President George W. Bush at a special White House ceremony. In time, as he spoke out around the world about what he had really witnessed, his golden boy status at the White House and amongst Republicans who pulled him into politics diminished. Exactly what had he witnessed that turned away some of his previous admirers? In a word: BOMBS! Rodriquez and some of his co-workers were down in the lower basement levels at the time of the attack and both heard and felt huge explosions beneath their feet. While this anomaly never led to a serious investigation, the timing of these explosions is more troubling. They occurred several seconds before the first airplane impacted Tower 1.

NATO is extending its bombing campaign in Libya for another 90 days, as forces loyal to former leader Moamar Gaddafi continue to resist a military assault by rebel fighters.Eight of the 28 NATO nations have taken part in air strikes since the mission began and have flown 23,350 sorties, including 8,751 raids against targets such as command centres, armoured vehicles and missile sites.

Through their work, these citizens have proven that diverse sectors of society including philanthropic, public service, corporate, and civic organizations can work together successfully to implement and devise solutions that effect positive, lasting social change.”

In reality, it is yet another elaborate display of self-aggrandizing by the same handful of corporate-financier interests emanating from Wall Street and London, attempting to maintain the legitimacy of their “international order.” …

She was also at the center of “the el-Masri incident,” in which an innocent German citizen was kidnapped by the CIA in 2003 and held under terrible conditions without charges for five months in a secret Afghan prison. The AP characterized it as “one of the biggest diplomatic embarrassments of the U.S. war on terrorism.”

Government data indicate that more than one in three young families with children were living in poverty in the US in 2010, the highest rate ever recorded. At the same time that families are financially strained, assistance programs for the poor have been cut and eligibility rules tightened.

ADEN — Ten Al-Qaeda suspects were killed while a top leader in the network escaped death as US drones carried out several air strikes on their strongholds in Yemen’s south, local officials said Wednesday.
“US drones carried out two air strikes on Al-Mahfad (in the southern Abyan province) where Al-Qaeda militants — among them Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) number two Saeed al-Shehri — are present,” said a local official in the village.
Four suspected militants were killed while Shehri escaped, said the well-informed official who requested anonymity.

Former “US” ambassador wants to use US Navy against Turkey

No Turkey This Thanksgiving
by Philip Giraldi

…Turkey is an ally. Israel is not. Turkey has served United States strategic interests. Israel has not. Turkey has hosted American bases and committed its soldiers to support their American counterparts in combat. Israel has not.

Israel has done little more vis-à-vis the United States’ real interests than take more than a hundred billion dollars in taxpayer provided largesse, use Washington as a veto machine to protect its own interests, and betray all of that by spying and stealing defense secrets which were later traded to the Russians and sold to the Chinese.

Unilateralist Israel Decries Palestinian “Unilateralism”

This Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had this to say of the upcoming Palestinian bid for UN recognition: “”Unilateral measures are not the way to advance peace between us.” For once, I must say I agree with Netanyahu. Unilateral measures are not, and have not been, any kind of peace-advancing measure in this situation.

If unilateralism were a peace-advancing measure, then Israel and Palestine surely would have seen peace by now. The history of this conflict is rife with unilateralism, particularly on the Israeli side. Since its creation in 1948, Israel’s approach to all of its neighbors has been to unilaterally commit acts of siege and war, and to strike fiercely at any real or perceived opposition.

Murder and Torture, the Lasting Legacy of America

Bataan Death March, Gestapo, Russian Gulags, America Has Exceeded It All

So many Americans still think torture, murder, gang rape of children is “fair and balanced” as a way of, of what? Waging war? Afghanistan is a war? Oh come now.Its an occupation, no more.

What America is doing, has been doing for a decade, is imprisoning Muslims, mostly, from around the world, on any pretense, and killing thousands of them. We may never know but as many as 200,000 people may have been systematically murdered, not just raped or tortured, very little of which involved “waterboarding.”

Facial Recognition Technocracy: Facebook Photo Matching Is Just the Start

As facial recognition tech moves into law enforcement, military use, and targeted advertising, and onto the streets of your town, will your privacy be a casualty? Duh!

The Internet was in an uproar earlier this year following Facebook’s launch of facial recognition software for its photo services, enabling users to identify their friends in photos automatically–and without their permission. Though critics described that move as creepy, the controversial technology may now be on the verge of widespread use.

Biggest Losers in Palestine Veto? The American People

If the Palestinian application for United Nations full membership actually takes place Friday and the United States uses its Security Council veto to stop the process, it will be the final step in a predictable and preventable tragedy playing out. Some are arguing that Washington might actually abstain, thereby gaining considerable favorable sentiment from much of the world and also sending a signal to Israel that there are limits to the bilateral relationship. But it is far more likely that President Barack Obama, who has stated over and over that he will protect Israel in international forums, will not flinch when he calls on Susan Rice to cast the fatal vote.

Moral Bankruptcy: Will US Veto Palestine?

This week at the UN – if the US push to disable the process does not succeed – a vote will be taken on Palestinian statehood. The US has already stated that it will veto any vote that supports Palestinian statehood. So why take the vote if that is the end result? Wonders Jim Miles…

Island of the “Hunter-Killers” — The Seychelles Sells Out to the U.S. Military

John Galt
Activist Post

How much does it cost to purchase a tropical paradise island as a base for hunter-killers? $5.5 million for 4 months, according to an unclassified cable obtained by WikiLeaks. This is the amount of revenue that three programs of the U.S. Military are estimated to have generated for the Seychelles economy at the end of 2009. All that is required is to be complicit as a host for MQ-9 Reaper drones known as “hunter-killers” that are contributing to death from a distance via drone warfare in six countries…

Obama Hosts International Debut for Libya’s Racist and Thoroughly Non-Revolutionary Regime

Glen Ford
Black Agenda Report

The United States and the corporate media would have you believe that President Obama and the U.S. corporate media are celebrating the triumph of a “revolution” in Libya. But there was no revolution. “’Revolutionaries’ – African revolutionaries – do not name their fighting units ‘the Brigade for Purging Slaves, Black Skin.’”…

Flashback ’07: Is Your Cell Phone Bugged?

Time/CNN’s Captain Obvious Asks: Have Cell Phones Become Personal Tracking Devices?

“In addition, some cell phones can’t be completely powered off without taking the batteries out. In an opinion arguing that roving taps are legal under federal wiretapping laws, US District Judge Lewis Kaplan said that roving taps “functioned whether the phone was powered on or off.” Newer Nokia phones will turn themselves on if an alarm is set, and apparently they’ll also turn themselves on to eavesdrop on your conversations.”

Failed bill spotlights dysfunction in Congress

They are almost out of money again!

Republican leaders
scrambled on Thursday to find the votes to keep the U.S. government funded after the embarrassing defeat of a spending bill threw into question Congress’ ability to pass basic laws.
The bill’s unexpected failure suggested that, even in the face of rock-bottom approval ratings, Democratic and Republican lawmakers may not be able to bridge their differences to pass a measure that would help disaster victims and avoid a government shutdown.!

The Obama Doctrine?

A recent article in USA Today raises the question if the developments in Libya show Obama’s overall approach to foreign policy and the beginning of what properly might be called “The Obama Doctrine.”

Well, if Obama’s approach to foreign policy can be called a doctrine, it could easily be defined in these terms:

“I will use the full power of the CIA and the U.S. military to steal the resources of any country who opposes the intrusion of Wall Street bankers, oil magnates and transnational corporations.” However, isn’t this exactly what American presidents have been doing since Woodrow Wilson’s times?
