All soldiers heading to their bases or taking leave from their posts in rural areas will be transported by helicopters between city centers and their posts, according to a statement released by the General Staff last week.
Similarly, the Russians can be expected to continue at least some forms of cooperation with the Syrian government. For example, unverified reports claim that Moscow is shifting the responsibility of supplying arms to the Assad regime to proxies such as Belarus.
Why should some giant predator corporation pay you 15 dollars an hour plus benefits when they can pay a worker on the other side of the planet a dollar an hour with no benefits to do the same job?
Through a closely held equity fund called Solamere, Mitt Romney and his wife, son and brother are major investors in an investment firm called H.I.G. Capital. H.I.G. in turn holds a majority share and three out of five board members in Hart Intercivic, a company that owns the notoriously faulty electronic voting machines that will count the ballots in swing state Ohio November 7. Hart machines will also be used elsewhere in the United States.
Romney Family buys voting machines through Bain Capital investment - with video ~ link ~ Tagg Romney, the son of Republican presidential candidate , has purchased electronic voting machines that will be used in the 2012 elections in Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, Washington and Colorado.
Romney's ties with voting machine makers raise alarms ~ link ~ It may 'raise alarms' but in early 21st Century America that is ALL it will do!!! Stirling
Obama and Romney both favor a One World Economic System that kills American jobs ~ link ~ And with the jobs is killing the America that we know. Stirling
Romney's Top Adviser, Dov Zakheim, Connected to 9/11 ~ link ~ Like 'up to his eyeballs' in it! Stirling
At this stage in the campaign, the claim that Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are virtually identical in every way can scarcely be denied. From their positions on healthcare, the implementation of economic austerity, and perpetual warfare, the Presidential candidate and the President himself are mirror images of one another with the minute exception of the political presentation of those polices and the much-exploited physical differences hyped by the media.
However, while Obama’s expansion of war and wholesale slaughter is accomplished through deceit and other covert forms of treachery, Mitt Romney’s war psychosis is manifested much more openly. As I detailed in my last article, “Open War Policy Revealed by Romney’s NeoCon Advisers,” Romney’s sprint toward a third world war of a potentially thermonuclear variety could scarcely be more clear, quite the rarity for Romney.
On War and Peace, George McGovern will die vindicated ~ link ~ I always liked Senator McGovern and supported him many years ago. Stirling
Speaking at the Democratic National Convention in 1972, George McGovern kicked off his ill-fated presidential bid by focusing on his opposition to the ruinous war in Vietnam. "I have no secret plan for peace. I have a public plan. And as one whose heart has ached for the past ten years over the agony of Vietnam, I will halt a senseless bombing of Indochina on Inaugural Day," he said. "There will be no more Asian children running ablaze from bombed-out schools. There will be no more talk of bombing the dikes or the cities of the North. And within 90 days of my inauguration, every American soldier and every American prisoner will be out of the jungle and out of their cells and then home in America where they belong. And then let us resolve that never again will we send the precious young blood of this country to die trying to prop up a corrupt military dictatorship abroad. This is also the time to turn away from excessive preoccupation overseas to the rebuilding of our own nation. America must be restored to a proper role in the world. But we can do that only through the recovery of confidence in ourselves."
