Channel 2 in Israel, sourcing a “senior American official”, says that the decision has already been made by the Israeli government to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Let us recall that Israel attacked Iraq’s nuclear power station at Orisak in 1961, even though again there was no evidence of a weapons program and more to the point, the reactor design was incapable of making weapons materials. And following the invasion of 2003, IAEA inspectors examined the remains of the Osirak power station and confirmed that there had never been any nuclear weapons facility underneath it, as Israel has underneath Dimona. As a side note, the 2003 invasion of Iraq was based on more claims by Israel of an Iraqi clandestine nuclear weapons program. Again, the claims were false.
So here we are again once more with Israel screaming about the Iranian nuclear thr3eat, and having been batting zero up until how why is anyone even bothering to listen to th3se habitual liars?
But Israel has decided to bomb Iran’s civilian power station based on nothing more than their paranoid delusion. This is, of course, an act of war, and Iran will be morally justified in launching an immediate counter-attack. Israel is not worried about an Iranian counter-attack because their plan is to pile up lots and lots of American kids as bullet-stoppers to protect their precious Israeli soldiers and despite being clearly in the wrong, the US Government seems to be perfectly happy to provide said American children bullet stoppers in exchange for some generous donations to their re-election campaigns.
There is a word for this plan by the US Government to take your children and sell their services to a foreign owner, and that word is “slavery.”
So, it is clear that the US government is unable and unwilling to stand up to Israel lust for conquest (as long as someone else’ kids bleed for it). Fine. Let Israel attack Iran by themselves and let Israel deal with the consequences by themselves. And on the day the US Government demands we send our children to defend Israel from Iran’s righteous wrath, that should be the day we fire this government, and replace it with one that will value our children’s lives more highly than those of Israel.
UK police shoot dead another unarmed man in a ‘pre-planned’ operation following similar cases in recent months raising fears police have a license to kill.
Amid concerns over thousands of protestors descending on Chicago, Illinois for the G-8 Summit this spring, the event have been moved to the presidential compound at Camp David, Maryland, around an hour outside of Washington.
Leaders from the United States, Russia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and European Union were expected to arrive in Chicago this May for the annual meeting of the world’s largest economies.
Protesters also had plans for the Windy City, however, and demonstration groups including Occupy Wall Street offshoots had begun orchestrating events to coincide with the meeting.
Attorney General Eric Holder defends targeted killings of U.S. citizens saying its perfectly legal as long as ambiguous conditions are met.
The pentagon has been caught in a scandal to cover up the fact its new stealth fighter fails to meet military requirements to fly as far and take off as quickly as needed.
The first is that it’s corrupt. This bank has systematically defrauded almost everyone with whom it has a significant business relationship, cheating investors, insurers, homeowners, shareholders, depositors, and the state. It is a giant, raging hurricane of theft and fraud, spinning its way through America and leaving a massive trail of wiped-out retirees and foreclosed-upon families in its wake.
The second is that all of us, as taxpayers, are keeping that hurricane raging. Bank of America is not just a private company that systematically steals from American citizens: it’s a de facto ward of the state that depends heavily upon public support to stay in business. In fact, without the continued generosity of us taxpayers, and the extraordinary indulgence of our regulators and elected officials, this company long ago would have been swallowed up by scandal, mismanagement, prosecution and litigation, and gone out of business. It would have been liquidated and its component parts sold off, perhaps into a series of smaller regional businesses that would have more respect for the law, and be more responsive to their customers.
One of the most poorly kept secrets in Wall Street’s empire of fraud was that credit default swaps were never anything but pretend-insurance. The credit default swap market is a $60+ trillion paper Ponzi-scheme. The Wall Street crime syndicate claiming to “back” this insurance have nothing more than a few $billion of liquidity apiece. It is a fact of arithmetic that these fraud-factories never intended to honour these contracts.

We know the manipulation of metals has been happening for decades. The manipulation has been good for everyone who previously had no clue it was going on before the whole economic melt down began. People have been able to buy metals at a manipulated price all these years.
The expectations from experts at this point is the manipulation will continue unless people get active and start buying the physical metals on the market.
What is the best thing you can do for another? Give them something that is of real value and will help them in the future.
03/05/12 Melbourne, Australia – In today’s Daily Reckoning, we’ll do something we can barely stand to do: we’re going to write one more time about Greece. If you can stand to read it, you may come to the same conclusion we reached.
That conclusion is simple: what’s going on Europe has nothing to do with solving a debt crisis and everything to do with preserving a corrupt system based on limitless debt and growing government power. The sooner you understand that fact, the sooner you’ll be able to prepare for what happens next. There are two options for what happens next, and we’ll get to those shortly.
Stuart Littlewood argues that, with the USA’s intelligence agencies concurring that Iran has no nuclear weapons programme, Washington’s and London’s clamour for ever tighter sanctions and war with Iran appear to be motivated not by national interests, but by loyalty and obedience to Israel and its lobbies.
Just got this in email:
After signing contracts and paying in full for a mobile ad to carry your message to the AIPAC Policy Conference today; after letting 100,000 of you know about the truck; after nearly 5,000 of you signed the ad and let all of your friends know; after hundreds more chipped in for the ad; after sending a press release out to the media….After all that, the owner of the truck changed his mind at the last minute and decided not to let our ad run.
Why? What was so terrible about the ad that no one could be allowed to see it?
Its main message was: “AIPAC speaks for AIPAC, not for the Jews. AIPAC supports war with Iran and settlements, Jews do not.”
But the company let slip that they have other business with AIPAC, and didn’t want to upset them. I’m angry, but I can’t say I’m surprised. While I can’t say for sure if the truck owner got a call that scared him or if he simply got cold feet, I do know this is pretty much business as usual when dealing with matters related to AIPAC.
US Attorney General Eric Holder is prepared to deliver a major policy speech at Northwestern University on Monday afternoon, explaining for the first time his Justice Department’s rationale related to the President’s putative power to order the assassination of American citizens without judicial oversight.
The explanation has long been speculated at by legal experts and civil rights activists, as the Obama Administration is known to have a “kill list” and has assassinated multiple American citizens inside Yemen without providing any charges against them beforehand.
The G8 summit has been canceled in Chicago in May, according to the White House.
In 1912, citizens in Montana passed a ballot measure prohibiting corporate campaign donations, which the state’s supreme court recently upheld. David Fitzsimmons and others think the U.S. Supreme Court may have to revisit its landmark decision. From 1912, Herbert Johnson, one of the most conservative cartoonists of his era, did not buy the notion that corporations were people.
US Senator John McCain calls for an immediate military intervention against Syria today on the Senate Floor, saying the US should have learned from Libya
The chief of the struggling U.S. Postal Service received $384,229 in compensation last year — and at least one lawmaker thinks he should take a paycut.
Sen. Jon Tester, a Montana Democrat, decried top U.S. Postal Service salaries in a letter this week to the board governing the service. Tester wants top postal executives to cut their own salaries and bonuses as they move to cut mail delivery services and close postal plants and offices, laying off tens of thousands of workers.
Following Iran’s move to cut oil sales to British and French firms, the price of Brent crude has hit an eight-month high in Asian markets, reaching USD 121.10 per barrel.
Several former high-ranking military, intelligence and State Department officials took out an ad in the Washington Post today urging President Obama to stand fast against political and lobbying pressure to attack Iran over claims it is trying to develop nuclear weapons.
The letter, signed by five retired generals, two senior intelligence analysts and a senior State Department official, is accompanied by a photo and quotes from other current military and defense officials warning against such an attack.
Qatar’s remarks this week, as well as Saudi Arabia’s claim last Friday that arming the Syrian rebels would be an “excellent idea”, clearly shows a new reality. The Rubicon has been crossed. Hopes of resolving Syria’s raging insurgency through patience, or dialogue, have evaporated.
From the early days of the uprising against Colonel Gaddafi, Qatar was running more weapons to Libya’s rebels than any other state. Throughout the war, giant Qatari military transporters regularly disgorged tonnes of weaponry in plain view at Djerba airport in Tunisia, not far from the Libyan border.
US Stocks Drop As Economic Growth Concerns Weigh On Market
NEW YORK (Dow Jones)–Stocks bounced back in afternoon trading from morning losses, but they remained in the red amid concerns about slowing global economic growth.
-The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 21 points, or 0.2%, to 12956
-The Nasdaq Composite shed 31 points, or 1%, to 2945.
-European markets were broadly lower
-Asian exchanges also fell
Who needs diplomacy, or international law? Not former presidential candidate (R-AZ) John McCain, who became the first senator to publicly call for a US-led military strike on Syria in order to halt the nearly year-long conflict there.
This would be a fine one-off blooper story if it weren’t for some upsetting implications. This is exactly why we have reason to raise multiple eyebrows at Congress, which wants to allow hundreds of similar drones to fly over US airspace. These drones are still a relatively young technology, relatively unproven, and relatively crash-prone. The odds of being hit by one are low, of course, but should a Texas-style UAV plummet ever happen in, say, a dense urban area, nobody would be laughing. Not all of us are driving around in Bearcats.
