The Guardian today reveals that the Government’s new ‘counterterrorism’ strategy due next month called Contest 2 will define as ‘extremist’ anyone who believes in ‘armed resistance, anywhere in the world.
The government is criminalising legitimate dissent under the guise of fighting 'extremism', a word for which it has no definition
Now, that qualification could be used to cover a very wide group of political and industrial activists indeed: including all those students who have been occupying university buildings since the new year in protest at Israel's carnage in the Palestinian territories; all those engineering construction workers who staged mass walkouts at refineries and power stations over the past couple of weeks; and all those who blocked streets – or threw their shoes at police – around the Israeli embassy in London at the height of the Gaza bombardment in January.

Once again we are left with the stark contradiction between WTC-7's sudden collapse into its own footprint on 9-11, even though it had not been struck by an airplane, was built far more fire and bomb proof than a normal building owing to the Federal offices that rented space in it, and showed far less fire than this hotel.

Tony Blair is poised to become the first President of Europe after it was confirmed that French leader Nicolas Sarkozy is determined to help him win the post.
A senior aide to President Sarkozy told a private gathering of senior British and French politicians that he is to tell fellow EU leaders that Mr Blair is the only man who can help Europe stand up to the rest of the world.
This illustrates one of the dangers of globalism.

A commercial Iridium communications satellite collided with a Russian satellite or satellite fragment, Tuesday, creating a cloud of wreckage in low-Earth orbit, officials said Wednesday. The international space station is not threatened by the debris, they said, but it's not yet clear whether it poses a risk to any other satellites in similar orbits.
Okay folks, here is the difference between orbit and Earth.
When two objects collide on Earth the pieces fall down to the ground and that is pretty much the end of the affair.
But debris from this accident, some 280 pieces large enough to track and countless others too small to detect with Earth-based radars, for the most part will go into different and unpredictable orbits.
Yes, some will enter the atmosphere and provide a pretty show for people on the ground, but despite the calming in this article the real danger is a "cascade" in that some of these 280+ pieces will hit other satellites, breaking them into 200-400 pieces, then those pieces will hit more satellites, creating more debris, which hit more satellites, etc.
The end result is a near-Earth "no spacecraft" zone, filled with a cloud of dead debris ready to shotgun any spacecraft coming in or going out.
Now, having thought about this back when the Pentagon idiots were talking space-based weapons, there is a cheap and easy way to de-orbit this debris, and if someone wants to invest in a company to do just that, drop me a line.
Countries with satellites in space will have to play "dodgeball" for decades to avoid debris from this week's collision of
Looks like I was not being unduly alarmist on this subject during yesterday's show!
High over Siberia – but not too high to be seen with the naked eye – two satellites have crashed into each other, creating debris clouds that could take decades to fall out of orbit and will pose an increased risk of more space accidents as they do.
The collision took place on Tuesday night 485 miles above the Russian Arctic. A defunct Russian military satellite falling out of orbit defied odds of “millions or maybe billions to one” to hit a civilian American satellite travelling at more than
Scientists said that at least 600 new pieces of space debris are now orbiting the Earth in two expanding clouds that could eventually ring the planet.
The crash of two satellites has generated an estimated tens of thousands of pieces of space junk that could circle Earth and threaten other satellites for the next 10,000 years, space experts said Friday.
One called the collision "a catastrophic event" that he hoped would force the new
Russian Mission Control chief Vladimir Solovyov said Tuesday's smashup of a derelict Russian military satellite and a working U.S. Iridium commercial satellite occurred in the busiest part of near-Earth space — some 500 miles (800 kilometers) above Earth.
The US Joint Space Operations Center tracks about 18,000 objects in orbit, so many that it has to decide which to follow most closely, like the International Space Station or manned space flights.
"There are limits on your ability to track and compute every piece of orbiting man made object," said Whitman.
Confirming media reports of the incident involving
These collisions ( and more of them happen then you might think) happen when one sub is trying to sneak up into the baffles (propellor wash) of the other sub. If that front sub makes a sudden move, or slows down, or if the trailing sub misjudges the distance on the passive sonar, there will be a collision.
Forget the drone stuff. Here is your eye-popping statistic of the day: "This year, the Pentagon will employ 27,000 people just for recruitment, advertising and public relations — almost as many as the total 30,000-person work force in the State Department."
A study funded by NASA has flagged up yet another terrible hazard for those no longer able to get excited about nuclear war, global pandemics, terrorism, climate change, economic meltdown and asteroid strike. Top space brainboxes say that even if the human race survives all those, there is a serious risk of civilisation being brought crashing to its knees by a sudden high-intensity solar radiation storm.

"The Israelis will be pushing [Washington] to ensure that Iran never gets to that point and failing that, they will consider a military strike," Reuters quoted Miller -- who is a former US Middle East peace negotiator and is currently an analyst at the Woodrow Wilson Center -- as saying late Friday.
"It need not be conclusive or threatening, but it will be very serious and ... scare the daylights out of the president that unless the international community mobilizes to address the situation, the Israelis will," he said.

Since entering office, President Barack Obama has promised sweeping changes in three aspects of governance: transparency, law enforcement, and stewardship of American tax dollars. For a public weary of law enforcement forever prosecuting street but never elite crime, Obama's many statements about holding all individuals accountable under the law have been encouraging. He also called for government-agency compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in a White House mandate for transparency. Obama swore any bailouts of financial institutions and industries will hereafter avoid secretly funneling taxpayer funds into bloated Wall Street bonuses, executive junkets, and private jets.
But does Obama intend to follow these rules himself? Probably not. Obama's entire facade momentarily crumbled under a single withering question – "Do you know of any country in the
In the harshest war rhetoric since the deadly offensive on Gaza, former Israeli UN ambassador, Dan Gillerman, said Tel Aviv could not afford to wait any longer for diplomatic efforts to curb Iran's uranium enrichment program adding that it was preparing a military offensive against the country.

Officials moved to cool fevered expectations - and assuage lingering European concerns - about plans to thaw a 30 year freeze in US relations.
Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, reiterated that any talks held with the Iranian leadership would not necessarily be with President Ahmadinejad and would involve careful preparations beforehand.
Asked if the use of force was still possible, he replied: "The President hasn't changed his viewpoint that he should preserve all his options." Mr Gibbs added that the

Nobody has offered any proof that
Folks, this is a repeat of the lies used to start a war with Iraq, but since they cannot go ahead and claim that Iran actually has nuclear weapons without a demand of proof from a world made skeptical by the Iraq lies, so the claim is that Iran may have nuclear weapons in the future, a far more difficult claim to prove or (for the purposes of the war mongers) disprove.
But this idea of killing people because of what they MIGHT do in the future is the slipperiest of slopes. Can I shoot my neighbor today because there is a very real chance he might attack my wife next month? Can I shoot the teenagers hanging around my car rather than risk having them steal the vehicle at some point in the future? I don't like the way the guy who lives by the mailboxes looks at me; does that give me the moral right to set fire to his home to drive him out?
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) says there is no evidence that proves
Departing CIA Director Michael Hayden said Thursday that the Islamic Republic's production of low-enriched uranium does not necessarily substantiate an Iranian objective to build atomic weaponry.

Israeli maltreatment of Palestinian captives and political prisoners has reached unprecedented levels of brutality, according to lawyers, human rights groups and newly-released prisoners.
There are currently as many as 12,000 Palestinian detainees languishing in Israeli detention camps, many of them without charge or trial. They include hundreds of university professors, engineers, school teachers as well as religious and civic leaders, students, resistance fighters and women activists.
Two years ago, the Israeli occupation authorities abducted hundreds of democratically- elected officials, including mayors, members of local city councils, law-makers, and cabinet ministers, many associate with Hamas’s political wing.

"Ana raicha Al Qaeda" is colloquial for "I'm going to the toilet". A very common and widespread use of the word "Al-Qaeda" in different Arab countries in the public language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb "Qa'ada" which mean "to sit", pertinently, on the "Toilet Bowl". In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: "Al-Qaeda" also called the "Hamam Franji" or foreign toilet, and "Hamam Arabi" or "Arab toilet" which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called "Ma Qa'adia" or "Little Qaeda".
So, if you were forming a terrorist group, would you call yourself, "The Toilet"?
