The Lies Reach Critical Mass ~ link ~ This is an excellent article, please take the time to read it.  Stirling    

Since 2000 43,000 American manufacturing plants have been closed. The US has over 3,000 counties and 300 million people so the average county has around 100,000 people and lost 14 manufacturing plants.

I believe this de-industrialization has been deliberate so America can more easily be conquered. The people who think they own you and your government do not like you, the Bill of Rights and your stinking democracy.

They want you to lose WW III.

Blasts and anti-aircraft fire near Gaddafi Tripoli compound ~ link ~ The various coalition members cannot agree on who (NATO/etc.) is to run the operation.  Some NATO members are strongly against the operation (such as German and Bulgaria, the latter saying it was an adventure for oil interests), some say we are not out to kill Gaddafi (such as USA and France), but UK says he could be a target, Italy says it must not be a war on Libya, Norway will not release its six F-16 fighters for combat until the issue of command is decided.  This is a screwed up mess based on lies.  Stirling     

Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi's Tripoli compound has been rocked by blasts, and his southern strongholds and a navy base have been bombed, as international criticism mounts over the air assault on the country.

Rebels, meanwhile, said they were under intense attack by Colonel Gaddafi's forces in the city of Misrata near Tripoli on Monday and an AFP reporter saw them beaten back from a frail attempt to retake the eastern key town of Ajdabiya.

Gunfire and explosions rock Tripoli for 3rd night ~ link ~ Anti-aircraft fire and explosions reverberated across Tripoli for a third night on Monday and state television said several sites had come under attack in the capital. 

Western powers had no immediate confirmation they had launched fresh strikes on Tripoli in a campaign to target Libyan air defences and enforce a no-fly zone.

Medvedev rejects Putin 'crusade' remark over Libya ~ link ~ Seems like this new war has everyone bickering ....maybe because they know the true risks of what is going down in the wider strategic picture.  Stirling   

Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev has said Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's description of the UN resolution on Libya is "unacceptable".

The rare rebuke came after Mr Putin said the resolution resembled "medieval calls for crusades".

Putin: UN Libya resolution defective, reminds of medieval call for Crusade - video ~ link ~ Take the time to listen to the translation.  Stirling    

Opposition to Libya assault grows as allies battle to protect united front ~ link ~ Serious fractures emerged in the international community yesterday over the military intervention in Libya, with some nations asking such basic questions as what the end-game is and how long it will take.

Just days after forsaking its chance to veto the United Nations resolution that authorised the air strikes, Russia offered the most jarring commentary, with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin saying: "The resolution is flawed. It allows everything and is reminiscent of a medieval call for a crusade. In fact, it allows intervention in a sovereign state." 

Why we shouldn't invade Libya - Views from the five countries that abstained on UN Security Council Resolution 1073 ~ link ~ When last's week UN Security Council Resolution 1973 was passed – enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya and authorising member states to "take all necessary measures" to "protect civilians and civilian-populated areas under threat of attack" – only five countries chose to abstain, rather than support it.

Given the consensual nature of the exchanges in this afternoon's Commons debate, it's worth seeking out the views of Brazil, Russia, India, China and Germany, whose early reservations may soon become more commonplace. Whilst it could be argued that they have an anti-west foreign policy agenda, or corrupt regimes to protect, many of the points they make are being echoed throughout the general populace. 

Gaza Strip: Israel launches air strikes ~ link ~ The entire treatment of the people in Gaza and Palestine as non-humans is shocking coming from such an intelligent people as Israel.  They are breeding hate and war and they are a small target; they should be breeding peace and prosperity.   Stirling     

At least 17 people have been injured by a series of Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip, Palestinian medics say.

There were reports of up to nine explosions in Gaza City, and in the north and south of the territory.

British Royal Navy destroys Gaddafi's HQ: Row over right to kill Libyan tyrant ~ link ~ My my, the demonizing of Gaddafi has risen to a fever pitch by the mainstream news media.   Many people are waking up to this as simple propaganda, but many are simply too brain dead to ever think for themselves.  So they allow the worst of society to lead them into unnecessary wars and economic depressions and man-made disasters.  Stirling    

But as Britain prepared to launch more attacks tonight, the country's top soldier was embroiled in an astonishing clash with Defence Secretary Liam Fox and Foreign Secretary William Hague after they did not rule out an assassination attempt against Gaddafi.

Asked if there could be an attempt to kill the Libyan dictator, General Sir David Richards, the chief of the defence staff, said: "Absolutely not. It is not allowed under the UN resolution and it is not something I want to discuss any further."

Gaddafi 'not targeted' by airstrikes - with video ~ link ~ The head of the US Africa Command Gen Carter F Ham said attacking Col Gaddafi was not part of his mission.

And a French spokesman said that even if the Libyan leader's exact location was known, he would not be fired on.

Gaddafi not a target, say military chiefs - with video ~ link ~ The Chief of the Defence Staff, Gen Sir David Richards, flatly insisted that seeking to hit the Libyan dictator was not allowed under the terms of United Nations Security Council resolution 1973. 

But after Defence Secretary Liam Fox suggested over the weekend that Col Gaddafi could be a "legitimate target", No 10 sources insisted it was legal to target anyone killing Libyan civilians.

Arab support wavers as second night of bombing begins - with video ~ link ~ The two-day old war is beginning to get unpopular already, as the war's aim now shifts to "getting rid of Gaddafi" from saving civilians" - what total bullshit.  The global banking cartel and Israel, who are behind all of this, do NOT care one bit for the civilians being killed.  They are creating chaos for the coming war on Iran, for a overall chaos (political, economic, military) mix to help usher in their long-sought evil global high-tech police state/New World Order.  Stirling    
The first potential crack in the coalition behind the Western-led military onslaught on Muammar Gaddafi's air defences opened up yesterday when Amr Moussa, Secretary-General of the Arab League, condemned "the bombardment of civilians".

His concerns were expressed hours before a section of the Gaddafi compound was targeted on the second successive night of bombing. After a loud explosion was heard from the direction of the compound, journalists were shown a building badly damaged by a missile. There were no immediate reports of injuries among more than 200 supporters of the regime who were in the compound at the time. 

French Rafale fighter pilots prepare for combat over Libya - video ~ link ~ The French have a truly great 4 1/2 generation jet fighter in the Rafale.  Too bad French politics is so corrupt that they have that little Hungarian-Zionist front man for a President.  Stirling   

Robert Fisk: Remember the civilian victims of past 'Allied' bombing campaigns ~ link ~ Simply not important to the people calling the shots!  Sad!  Stirling    

How life past catches up with life present. The Americans killed Raafat al-Ghosain, puctured above, just after 2am on 15 April 1986. In the days that followed her death, United States officials claimed that Libyan anti-aircraft fire might have hit her home – watch out for similar American claims in the coming hours – not far from the French embassy in suburban Tripoli.

But three weeks later, the Pentagon admitted that three bombs dropped from an F-111 aircraft as part of the US attack on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, in reprisal for an attack by Libyan agents on a Berlin nightclub, had "impacted in the vicinity of the French embassy" and had caused – to use the usual callous euphemism – "collateral damage".

Illinois Air National Guard heads to Libyan War ~ link ~ Spending billions and putting more of our people in 'harms way' for the global banking families and Israel.  Wake up people and stop this evil insanity!   Stirling     

The unit based out of Scott Air Force Base in southwest Illinois specializes in refueling aircraft in mid-air and will join the mission to establish a no-fly zone over Libya.

The 126th Air Refueling Wing and its 906th air Refueling Squadron fly the KC-135-R Stratotanker, which is the military version of the Boeing 707.

Wave of unrest shakes Syria as crowds torch party HQ ~ link ~ The "wavy of unrest" is directed to weaken and destroy as many Arab regimes as possible on the eve of a much wider war against Iran.  Stirling       

Crowds set fire to a headquarters of the ruling Baath Party in the Syrian city of Deraa yesterday, residents said, as the wave of unrest in the Arab world shook even one of its most authoritarian states.

The demonstrators also set ablaze the main courts complex and two phone company branches. One of the firms, Syriatel, is owned by President Bashar al-Assad's cousin Rami Makhlouf. 

King of Bahrain makes veiled charge against Iran ~ linkBahrain's king blamed a foreign plot for his nation's weeks-long unrest, using veiled language to accuse Iran of fomenting an uprising by the Shiite majority in the Sunni-ruled island kingdom. 

In Tehran, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei criticized the Saudi-led troop deployment in Bahrain, insisting the Shiite-led opposition protests against the island's Sunni rulers are not a sectarian dispute but an uprising against tyranny.

Top Yemeni general backs opposition - with video ~ link ~ Key Yemeni General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, long close to President Ali Abdullah Saleh, says he is backing the protest movement against the regime.

Two other senior army commanders are also reported to have resigned.

Latest: White smoke at #2, Smoke at #3 stops ~ link ~ White smoke billowed from a building that houses the No. 2 reactor at the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station Monday afternoon, while grayish smoke that was rising from the building of the No. 3 reactor stopped shortly after 6 p.m., the government's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency said.

The Tokyo Fire Department said it had stopped spraying water for the day after the smoke rose from the No. 3 reactor building. It will suspend the operation until safety at the site is confirmed, it said, adding, whether it will resume on Tuesday remains undecided at present.

Workers flee Japan nuclear plant as smoke rises - with video ~ link ~ Today there is much conflicting information on the Atomic Crisis in Japan.  Some mainstream news media are saying that the situation is stabilizing, however that is incorrect.  Unit 3 is a MOX fuel facility....that is it uses Plutonium as well as low-grade enriched Uranium.  The Plutonium is VERY DANGEROUS.  There is NO SAFE LEVEL OF EXPOSURE TO PLUTONIUM! ONE ATOM OF PLUTONIUM INHALED INTO YOUR LUNGS WILL RESULT IN YOUR DEATH!  Unit 3 has been on fire today, that is not stable or good in any reasonable definition of the words.  Stirling      

What caused the smoke to billow first from Unit 3 at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and later from Unit 2 is under investigation, nuclear safety agency officials said. Workers were evacuated from the area to buildings nearby, and officials said they were checking radiation levels. In the days since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami wrecked the plant's cooling systems, both reactors have overheated and seen explosions.

Meeting in Washington for an update on conditions at Fukushima, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said units 1, 2 and 3 have all seen damage to their reactor cores, but the containment structures are holding. The assessment dispels some concerns about Unit 2, where an explosion damaged a pressure-reducing chamber around the bottom of the reactor core.

Japan faces fresh food safety scare ~ link Tests found levels of radioactive iodine up to seven times the legal limit in samples of raw milk, spinach and two leaf vegetables as far away from the nuclear plant as Chiba prefecture, to the east of Tokyo. 

Tokyo water sample shows radioactive iodine says government ~ link 

Japan mulls ban on Fukushima area food products ~ linkJapan has confirmed the presence of radioactive iodine contamination in food products from near a crippled nuclear plant and is considering whether to order a halt to the sale of such products from the area, the U.N. nuclear body said on Saturday.

No quick fix seen at Japan's nuclear power plants ~ link ~Officials raced Monday to restore electricity to Japan's leaking nuclear plant, but getting the power flowing will hardly be the end of their battle: With its mangled machinery and partly melted reactor cores, bringing the complex under control is a monstrous job.

Restoring the power to all six units at the tsunami-damaged complex is key, because it will, in theory, power up the maze of motors, valves and switches that help deliver cooling water to the overheated reactor cores and spent fuel pools that are leaking radiation.

Pounding rain fuels radiation fears in Japan ~ link "We have said that radiation levels tend to rise when it rains, and we are monitoring radiation levels that have been announced every hour," a Fukushima prefecture official said.

"The prefecture is giving advice on how to cope with the rain through newspapers and TV programmes, such as telling people to avoid exposure to rain as much as possible and to wipe dry after getting wet.
