NYPD Brutality: Punching Protesters

14 Oct

Oh dear. The White Shirts that are dragging New York’s finest name down have now dropped any pretence at keeping the peace and are punching protesters.

These guys seem to be the Big Banks’ new enforcers.

UPDATE: It seems the White Shirts are $37- the-hour Rentacops paid for by Wall Street Banks!

Israel Holds US Hostage. Again.

14 Nov

Israel’s prime minister has briefed his cabinet on a package of incentives the US has proposed if it renews a partial freeze on settlement construction.

According to diplomats, the US has said it will:

  • Not ask Israel to extend the new freeze when it expires
  • Provide 20 F-35 fighter jets worth $3bn (yes, $3bn)
  • Veto or oppose any initiatives at the UN Security Council critical of Israel
  • Sign a comprehensive security agreement with Israel at the same time as any peace deal is finalised.

In return, Israel would stop building for 90 days in the occupied West Bank.

Yeah. Another great piece of negotiating by the Obama team. (That’s irony).

Israel has occupied the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, since 1967, settling close to 500,000 Jews in more than 100 settlements. They are considered illegal under international law, although Israel disputes this. There are about 2.5 million Palestinians living in the West Bank.

Israeli settlements on occupied land:

  • More than 430,000 settlers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, alongside 2.5 million Palestinians
  • 20,000 settlers live in the Golan Heights
  • Settlements and the area they take up cover 40% of the West Bank
  • There are about 100 settlements not authorised by the Israeli government in the West Bank

George W. Bush The Worst President Ever.

4 Dec

As far as his performance on foreign policy and the economy, George W. Bush must surely be the worst ever President of the USA.

And the American people agree. Bush’s latest quarterly average is among the worst Gallup has measured for any president since 1945. For the 252 presidential quarters for which Gallup has data, only 9 are worse than Bush’s most recent.

Al Qaeda Endorses McCain

22 Oct

In an endorsement that will not be welcomed by Mr McCain’s flagging campaign, the group said that if al-Qaeda wants to exhaust the USmilitarily and economically, the “impetuous” Republican presidential candidate is the better choice.

“This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier,” the message said.

“Then, al-Qaeda will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush.”

“If al-Qaeda carries out a big operation against American interests,” it said, “this act will be support of McCain because it will push the Americans deliberately to vote for McCain so that he takes revenge for them against al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda then will succeed in exhausting America till its last year in it.”

Mark Salter, a senior McCain adviser, had no immediate comment.

So: McCain is the man who will keep the US safe? Yeah, right …
