Zimbabwe's currency crashes, prices rocket

Traders were quoting the Zimbabwean dollar at between 995 million and 1.45 billion against the greenback in Thursday morning trade, up from an average 700 million at the beginning of the week. The currency has depreciated by about 84 percent since the central bank effectively floated it in early May after years of an official peg.


Marines to begin martial law training in Indianapolis

Under the guise of urban warfare training the 26th Expeditionary Unit an elite group of U.S. Marines will conduct a martial law training exercise at 26 "surrendered" locations in central Indiana from June 4th thru the 17th. While state officials and media are doing their best to assure the public that this military takeover of civilian property is somehow a good thing, ignoring the Posse Comitatus Act which fundamentally prohibits these types of exercises.


Police to Seal Off D.C. Neighborhoods

Can you say Police State? The Examiner has the scoop on a controversial new program announced today that would create so-called "Neighborhood Safety Zones" which would serve to partially seal off certain parts of the city. D.C. Police would set-up checkpoints in targeted areas, demand to see ID and refuse admittance to people who don't live there, work there or have a "legitimate reason" to be there. Wow. Just, wow.

Corporate Spies Killing The CIA

The CIA is having a growing problem with their analysts and spies being recruited away by corporations. One unpleasant, for government intelligence agencies, development of the last few decades has been the growing popularity of "competitive intelligence" (corporate espionage.) It's a really big business, with most large (over a billion dollars of annual sales) corporations having separate intelligence operations. Spending on corporate intel work is over $5 billion a year, and is expected to more than double in the next four years.



Blackwanter's Private Spies


By Jeremy Scahill

07/06/08 "The Nation" --- This past September, the secretive mercenary company Blackwater USA found its name splashed across front pages throughout the world after the company’s shooters gunned down seventeen Iraqi civilians in Baghdad’s Nisour Square. But by early 2008, Blackwater had largely receded from the headlines save for the occasional blip on the media radar sparked by Congressman Henry Waxman’s ongoing investigations into its activities. Its forces remained deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and business continued to pour in. In the two weeks directly following Nisour Square, Blackwater signed more than $144 million in contracts with the State Department for “protective services” in Iraq and Afghanistan alone and, over the following weeks and months, won millions more in contracts with other federal entities like the Coast Guard, the Navy and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.


Former high-ranking Bush officials enjoy war profits

Over the past decade, contracting for America's spy agencies has grown into a $50 billion industry that eats up seven of every 10 dollars spent by the U.S. government on its intelligence services. Today, unbeknownst to most Americans, agencies once renowned for their prowess in analysis, covert operations, electronic surveillance and overhead reconnaissance outsource many of their core tasks to the private sector. The bulk of this market is serviced by about 100 companies, ranging in size from multibillion dollar defense behemoths to small technology shops funded by venture capitalists.


Fearing Escalation, Pentagon Fought Cheney Plan

Pentagon officials firmly opposed a proposal by Vice President Dick Cheney last summer for airstrikes against Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) bases by insisting that the administration would have to make clear decisions about how far the United States would go in escalating the conflict with Iran, according to a former George W. Bush administration official.

This is quite revealing. What this means is that Bush and Cheney have already tried to kick off a war with Iran but are meeting "bureaucratic resistance." This suggests that the bomber flying over the US with nuclear-armed cruise missiles really was intended to stage a false-flag attack to kick off a war, and was thwarted when someone in the chain of command leaked the tact of the plane's flight.


IRAN: Former German official says war imminent

An opinion piece by the former German foreign minister published today in a leading Middle East paper says that Israel is planning to attack Iran over its nuclear program.

Whether Olmert retains his position or if there is an election in Israel will not move the timetable much for such an attack.

Israeli government officials understand that the next US president, whoever they might be, just may not be quite as carnage-prone (with other people's kids, that is) when it comes to neutralizing Israel's existential "threats" in the region (which of course are most of its neighbors).


Daniel Pipes: If Obama Wins, Bush Will Attack Iran in November

Leading neocon Daniel Pipes (director of the Middle East Forum) said in an interview posted Wednesday at National Review Online, that if Barack Obama is elected, George Bush would attack Iran in the remaining ten weeks of his term.

Sooner if the polls show a McCain loss right from the start.


ISRAEL'S NUCLEAR BOMBS ARE THE PROBLEM IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Needless to say, an Israeli or American-Israeli attack on Iran would be a blatant and unprovoked aggression on a sovereign nation. It would also plunge the world into an unpredictable phase of violence and turbulence, with deep and far-reaching ramifications.

Iran, although hostile to Israel because of the latter's Nazi-like occupation of Palestine and oppression of the Palestinian people, has never attacked Israel.


US sidesteps questions on Israeli threat against Iran

The White House Friday sidestepped questions about an Israeli threat to attack Iranian nuclear sites if it continues uranium enrichment, saying it would not respond to "hypotheticals.

Israeli Transport Minister Shaul Mofaz was quoted as telling an Israeli newspaper that an attack on Iran looks "unavoidable" given the apparent failure of sanctions to deny Tehran technology with bomb-making potential.

Memo to White House Spokesperson Stanzel; just in case you have suffered from an apparent case of selective amnesia, let me remind you that Bush has vowed to support Israel militarily in all cases, no matter who starts the shooting.

CIA Protects Al-Qaeda Group From Extradition

The CIA is protecting an Al-Qaeda linked terror group formerly headed by the alleged mastermind of 9/11 from being extradited to Iran according to an ABC News report, which also reveals that U.S. intelligence has been meeting and advising the group that has been blamed for bombings in Iran.

WHAT THE FLIP?!?!?!?!?

reading this headline, you don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Excuse me, but are all US citizens - and government agencies - not supposed to be the sworn mortal enemy of the alleged "Al-Qaeda" organization?

So, let me hazard a guess here.

This tribal group is no more "Al Qaeda" than I'm the Pope.

But this Sunni militant group, and CIA support for it, very much demonstrates the old Middle Eastern saying: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend".

An Islamic website that carried a doomsday message that "London shall be bombed" before the discovery of two crude car bombs in London last week was notorious for having long been infiltrated and controlled by intelligence agencies and spooks


SITE red-faced as Islamist 'Washington ruin' image turns out to be from Fallout 3 game

This image of Washington after a nuclear holocaust, which a US intelligence group claimed showed the ambition of Islamic extremist terrorists, was actually lifted from a computer game.

UPDATE: Just 30 minutes after this story was linked to several; blogs (including this one) the story was pulled at the source. The cache version at Google is empty. But I am leaving the link because "someone" so obviously wants this embarrassment to go away.


Ramping up the booga-booga

The image is not from Al Qaeda. It's artwork from a computer game called "Fallout."

Al Qaeda Supporters' Tape to Call for Use of WMDs

Intelligence and law enforcement sources tell ABC News they are expecting al Qaeda supporters will post a new video on the Internet in the next 24 hours, calling for what one source said is "jihadists to use biological, chemical and nuclear weapons to attack the West."

Isn't it amazing how intelligence sources always know when "al Qaeda" messages are going to be released and what they are about.


Bush misused Iraq intelligence: Senate report

Oh how hard the Mainstream Media strives to avoid using the word "Lie."

The latest euphemism is "Misused Intelligence."

Of course, we all know why the Mainstream Media will never use the word "Lie". They cannot report that Bush lied us into a war without admitting that they helped him to do it!


Confirmation from Senate Intel. Committee (finally): Bush lied about Iraq

The Senate Intelligence Committee finally issued its report on prewar intelligence during build up to the Iraq War -- and in the very nice language of the U.S. Senate -- the report confirms that Bush lied to the American people about the Iraq War:

Okay, here is where the rubber meets the road; what is the Senate going to DO about it? And when the Senate fails to do anything about it, what will YOU do?

Because if you do not do something about a President who lied us into Iraq (and is trying to lie us into Iran) then all future Presidents will feel they have the right to lie us into more wars with impunity.

We can win a future of peace for all the worlds by tarring and feathering just one lying fink and the enablers in the media and government who helped him do it.

Or we can condemn our children and grandchildren to endless wars and privations.

It is time to decide.

Senate Report: Bush Used Iraq Intel He Knew Was False

More than five years after the initial invasion of Iraq, the Senate Intelligence Committee has finally gone on the record: the Bush administration misused, and in some cases disregarded, intelligence which led the nation into war. The two final sections of a long-delayed and much anticipated "Phase II" report on the Bush administration's use of prewar intelligence, released on Thursday morning, accuse senior White House officials of repeatedly misrepresenting the threat posed by Iraq.

Bush is not just a "war president", as he so loves to characterize himself; he is truly a "war crimes president" by having sent our military in harm's way to a war based on a pack of lies, and because of what the war and occupation of Iraq has done to the Iraqi people.


Senate Panel Rejects Case for War

The panel's reproach, the most pointed on pre-invasion intelligence, doesn't call for penalties or a follow-up inquiry.

But if you download a copy of a music file, BOY are you in trouble!


Iraq Seeking to Cement Ties with Iran

Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki will make an official visit to Iran on Saturday to strengthen relations between the two countries.

Congratulations to the critical thinking-challenged, "never saw this coming" folks at the US state department.

Apparently, the biggest winner in the US-led invasion and occupation of Iraq is.............. (drumroll, please) IRAN!


Maliki arrives in Tehran

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki arrived in Tehran at the head of a high-powered security and military delegation to meet with Iranian officials on his second visit to the neighboring country since he came to power more than two years ago.

Apparently, the biggest winner from the US invasion and occupation of Iraq has been Iran.


Les États-Unis font chanter l'Irak à hauteur de 50 milliards de dollars pour le forcer à signer leur accord militaire


Le plan secret pour maintenir l'Irak


US issues threat to Iraq's $50bn foreign reserves in military deal

The US is holding hostage some $50bn (£25bn) of Iraq's money in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to pressure the Iraqi government into signing an agreement seen by many Iraqis as prolonging the US occupation indefinitely, according to information leaked to The Independent.

Few Americans are familiar with the proposed treaty. If they were, they might be shocked at its provisions, ashamed about its naked sadism. It:

· grants the U.S. long-term rights to maintain over 50 military bases in their California-sized country

· allows the U.S. to strike any other country from within Iraqi territory without the permission of the Iraqi government

· allows the U.S. to conduct military activities in Iraq without consulting with the local government

· allows U.S. forces to arrest any Iraqi without consulting with Iraqi authorities

· extends to U.S. troops and contracters immunity from Iraqi law

· gives U.S. forces control of Iraqi airspace below 29,000ft.

· places the Iraqi Defense, Interior and National Security ministries, under American supervision for ten years

· gives the U.S. responsibility for Iraqi armament contracts for ten years

Humiliating, right? The sort of conditions most Americans can’t imagine themselves accepting from a foreign occupying power.

What self-respecting people would ever agree to such provisions? Especially after their country’s been illegally invaded and occupied, on the basis of lies. Perhaps a million have been killed by the invaders and the civil strife they’ve unleashed. Two million have been driven into foreign exile, two million internally displaced. Thousands have been humiliated, terrified and tortured by the invaders. Millions’ electrical and water supply still lags behind Saddam-era levels. Millions’ personal security and enjoyment of human rights has deteriorated as a result of the invasion. Why should their leaders sign such an agreement?

'Genocide by design?' Bush Administration Plans to 'Stay' in Iraq for the Oil

EXCELLENT texte a lire

The Bush regime is responsible --legally and morally --for the deaths of some 1.2 million Iraqis and some 15,000 who die each month. [See: Michael Schwartz, Is the United States Killing 10,000 Iraqis Every Month? Or Is It More?]. The US, under Bush, is a terrorist nation and outlaw. Iraqi resistance, by contrast, is that of 'patriots' defending a 'homeland' against the crimes of mass murder, terrorism, and grand larceny.

Bush is so much more than the "war president", as he loves to characterize himself: he is truly a "war crimes president", and this country has become a rogue nation under the watch of his administration.


Cheney Enrages Iraqis Over Security Deal

Few Americans are familiar with the proposed treaty. If they were, they might be shocked at its provisions, ashamed about its naked sadism.


Treaty tensions mount as Iraq tells the US it wants all troops back in barracks

Several thousand demonstrators protested against the US in rallies across the country on Friday. The placard says: 'No agreement with US occupiers'

According to a senior Iraqi official, the negotiations between the two allies became so fraught recently that President Bush intervened personally to defuse the situation. On Thursday he telephoned Nouri al-Maliki, the Iraqi Prime Minister, to assure him that Washington was not seeking to undermine Iraq's sovereignty and that America would reconsider any contentious part of the agreement.

Can you blame the Iraqi people for not wanting the occupation troops to stay?

If this "agreement" gets passed before the end of this year (and the end of the election season, so Bush can trumpet Iraq as a "success" worth all the cost in blood and money), look for the Iraqi people to revolt completely against the Al-Maliki government (and our troops) in any way they can think of.


US 'close' to Iraq military deal

Muqtada al-Sadr, Iraq's influential Shia cleric, has called for mass protests on Friday unless the Iraqi government abandons the proposed deal.

Last week, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, Iraq's most revered Shia cleric, also reportedly expressed his anger, saying he would not permit the Iraqi government to sign a deal with "US occupiers" as long as he lived.

In the US, the House of Representatives has adopted a bi-partisan amendment requiring congressional approval for any proposed military accord with Iraq.

Watch for the Al Maliki government to accept this, over the strenuous objections of a large faction of the Iraqi people, and for Bush to do an end-run around congress to get this passed.


Revealed: Secret plan to keep Iraq under US control

A secret deal being negotiated in Baghdad would perpetuate the American military occupation of Iraq indefinitely, regardless of the outcome of the US presidential election in November.

The terms of the impending deal, details of which have been leaked to The Independent, are likely to have an explosive political effect in Iraq. Iraqi officials fear that the accord, under which US troops would occupy permanent bases, conduct military operations, arrest Iraqis and enjoy immunity from Iraqi law, will destabilise Iraq's position in the Middle East and lay the basis for unending conflict in their country.

This is what the current administration considers to be a viable plan for the future of Iraq????!?

A US presence in perpetuity

And just what, precisely, do the Iraqi people get out of this agreement?

I think the words "absolutely nothing" come to mind here.


New agreement lets US strike any country from inside Iraq

You know, when the USSR did that to Cuba, we almost wound up in WW3.

About 500 Australian combat troops pulled out of their base in southern Iraq on Sunday, fulfilling an election promise by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to bring the soldiers home this year.


Going to war with Iraq was wrong, Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd admits

In an admission that will make uncomfortable reading in London and Washington, the Labour leader dismissed one-by-one the reasons used by his predecessor, John Howard, to join the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq five years ago.


Howard accused of war crimes over Iraq troop deployment

A legal brief has been sent to the International Criminal Court (ICC) alleging former prime minister John Howard committed a war crime by sending troops to Iraq.


US paying allies to fight war in Iraq

In her testimony, Ugone also revealed that $135 million were given to forces from three countries UK, South Korea and Poland to facilitate their participation in the war. This is the first time that the US has officially admitted paying its allies in the so-called Coalition of the Willing that invaded Iraq in March 2003.

So from the get-go, the "Coalition o f the Willing" was actually a "Coalition of the Billing!"

Unflipping believable.


Iran mosque blast plotters admit Israeli, US links

Iran's chief prosecutor said bombers who caused a deadly blast at a mosque in Shiraz had confessed of links to Israel and the United States, the ISNA student news agency reported on Friday.


Diplomats: US walking away from UN rights forum

The United States has quietly informed Western allies of its intention to walk away from the United Nations Human Rights Council, diplomatic sources said on Friday.

As stated at the website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNHRC#January_2008_decree

In January of 2008, the following happened at the Council:

"The council released a statement calling on Israel to stop its military operations in the Gaza Strip and to open the Strip's borders to allow the entry of food, fuel and medicine. The council adopted the resolution by a vote of 30 to 1 that had been tabled by Pakistan and Syria on behalf of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Canada cast the lone opposing vote, while a total of 15 other states (7 from the European Union) abstained."


Olmert makes it clear strike on Iran 'remains on table'

PRIME Minister Ehud Olmert last night refused to discount the possibility of a military strike against Iran.

Of the Israeli-desired steps outlined by Mark Regev in this article, the embargoing of Iranian refined petroleum will be looked at as an act of war.

Of course, Olmert might have been jumping on this particular band-wagon right now because he's borrowing a page from the Clinton playbook to get away from his own corruption scandal woes at home.

To deflect from his own problems at the height of "L'affaire Lewinsky", Clinton bombed an aspirin factory in Sudan (for which the American people are still paying to re-construct, thank you very much.)

Unfortunately, the stakes here are fantastically much higher in the case of a potential military strike against Iran.

And, as has been mentioned, does Olmert really believe that Russia will just stand back and do nothing to protect its geopolitical and financial interests in Iran?

Were I Olmert, I wouldn't bet on it.


Israel attack on Iran 'unavoidable'-Olmert deputy

An Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear sites looks "unavoidable" given the apparent failure of sanctions to deny Tehran technology with bomb-making potential, one of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's deputies said on Friday.

Go ahead, Israel. Attack Iran.

But the problem is that Israel EXPECTS that American kids will be gladly sacrificed to prevent Iran from retaliating. Israel EXPECTS that US Tax dollars will pour out of your pocket and into Israel to fund the war.

I think if Israel wants to start a war, let them. But we should stay out of it. There is an old wisdom that the fastest way to make a dog stop chasing cars is to let him catch one! Much of the last 60 years of violence and deception could have been avoided had the US stood back and let Israel get their nose bloodied the first time they marched into someone else's lands.


Israel to attack Iran unless enrichment stops: minister

An Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear sites looks "unavoidable" given the apparent failure of sanctions to deny Tehran technology with bomb-making potential, one of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's deputies said on Friday.

"If Iran continues with its program for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack it. The sanctions are ineffective," Transport Minister Shaul Mofaz told the mass-circulation Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper.

Memo to Transport Minister Mofaz; if you want to go ahead with an attack on Iran, just go for it.

We'll be very happy to sit this one out, thank you very much.

And by the way, Minister Mofaz; do you have a clue as to what Russia may be poised to to if you attack Iran?

Do you think that it will just stand by and watch its financial and geopolitical interests in Iran get trounced, and stand idly by?

Before you decide on an attack against Iran, you'd better not guess on this.


Iran demands Security Council action on Israel threat

Iran demanded action from the U.N. Security Council about an Israeli threat to attack its nuclear sites if it continues uranium enrichment

Israeli PM raises spectre of full-scale Gaza operation

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Friday raised the spectre of a full-scale military operation in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip despite Egyptian attempts to mediate a truce.

"According to the information as it is now, the pendulum is much closer to tough military action," Olmert told journalists on arrival in Israel following a three-day trip to the United States.

Olmert is looking for any possible activity he can use to deflect the Israeli people's awareness away from his corruption scandal.

The death of scores of Palestinians would come in very handy for him right now in this regard.


Abbas informed of Israel's plan to retake Gaza

Remember way back before Ariel Sharon had his stroke, he offered the world a deal. Israel would get out of Gaza if the world would allow Israel to build more settlements in the West Bank. And I told you then that Israel would never keep the bargain; that as soon as they had those settlements built on the West Bank that Israel would go right back in and retake Gaza.

And here we are.


Oil price crisis: world powers trade blame, skirt responsibility

Leaders of the world's major powers voiced alarm on Saturday after the unprecedented one-day hike in the price of crude, expected to jolt world economy, trading blame but taking no responsibility.

The reason for the one-day jolt was Israel's announcement of their intent to bomb Iran's reactors. As a side note, we have been down this road before. Israel bombed Iraq's reactor complex under the justification that Iraq was building nuclear weapons underneath it (the way Israel is known to do under Dimona). But following the invasion and conquest of Iraq (based on a lie that Saddam had nuclear weapons) the ruins of the Iraqi reactor proved it was just a power station. No material or tools consistent with Israel's claim of a weapons factory were ever found.

Yet the US Government wants to go along with Israel's same stupid claims about Iran.


How will Britain respond to being slapped in the face by Israel?

"Thank you, your imperial majesty. Please give me another."

Many of the Middle East's myriad problems stem from indigenous factors like awful governance, but many others are due to the impunity with which Israel is able to break all the rules. From the occupation and colonization of Palestinian land to threats of aggression against Iran for allegedly violating a nuclear treaty that they have neither signed nor obeyed, the Israelis are openly dismissive of the international community and the principle of collective security. Perhaps if they were not coddled in return, if they were instead taken to task for their irresponsibility, they might change their ways.


Hundreds rally in Tel Aviv against killings in Gaza, Sderot

Demonstrators carried signs reading "Children in Gaza and Sderot want to live" and "End the siege on Gaza".

Among those who took part in the rally was Knesset Member Dov Khenin of the leftist Hadash party, who told Ynet that "the purpose of this demonstration is to warn of two possible wars - a 'small war' in Gaza, and the larger regional war with Iran, which (Transportation Minister Shaul) Mofaz speaks of. The latter may result in a large-scale catastrophe.

Unfortunately, the Israeli government is no more likely to listen to these peaceful voices of reason than the government of the US was right before the invasion of Iraq.
