Knowing of Afghanistan's mineral riches a look Inside a remote and dangerous Afghan mine



a look Inside a remote and dangerous Afghan mine Their mines without the Taliban are in the 16th century, Good luck trying to get those minerals out and to market! Knowing this I have to reiterate what we already discussed as this really puts their mineral wealth in a new perspective at least for me!

Afghanistan the Saudi Arabia of Lithium The China of Capitalism, success or failure of tribalism is up to them, Afghanistan the curse of natural resources! US geologists find $1 trillion of mineral reserves in Afghanistan, the deposits, which include large veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and lithium are so large they could alter the Afghan economy, American geologists said after discovering the resources.

Plans were announced to start mining copper in the Aynak valley, southwest of Kabul, which holds one of the world’s biggest untapped copper deposits, estimated to be worth up to $88_billion (£44 billion) – more than double Afghanistan’s entire gross domestic product (GDP) in 2007.

In November, 2008 a 30-year lease was sold to the China Metallurgical Group for $3 billion, making it the biggest foreign investment and private business venture in Afghanistan’s history.

However despite the latest finds, with no mining industry in place it would take decades to develop an infrastructure to exploit the vast mineral reserves which are scattered throughout the country including along the border with Pakistan where some of the most intense fighting has taken place. US geologists find $1 to $3 trillion of mineral reserves in Afghanistan

China‘s involvement in Afghanistan is more than overdue! US troops providing security for China’s monstrous copper mine

China is mining what may be the largest deposit of copper on the planet. They stand to make tens of Billions and we are defending their interests.

For now this is justified as we have to be in the area anyway but once China builds a railroad in order to move the copper to port that better come to an end. You can bet every inch of that railroad and port is going to need 24/7 security. It will be a major target as the Taliban seek to keep what is Afghanistan’s theirs!

China should have her troops there providing her own security at the very least. If they were helping in Afghanistan as they should they would be less inclined to be trying to gum up the works for us everywhere else. We must make this a world effort if we are to succeed. I am happy to see we are moving in that direction.
In closing there are 1 to 3 trillion dollars worth of mineral resources alone. Enough to make them a power house if they could only come together in some manner and had someone in control of the country that knew how to capitalize from it. They are throughout Afghanistan including the Afghan Pakistan border which is significant to me.

There is enough lithium alone to power laptops computers Ipads Ipods everything you can think of in the age of lithium batteries, the 21st century. The heck with copper mines pipelines and oil and gas this could force the Taliban into being the China of Afghanistan allowing Capitalism to facilitate their preferred lifestyle of tribalism as the Chinese have used it to further communism. It is up to them it is up to Afghanistan because history has taught us progress will not be denied. You either use it to your advantage or be trampled. I hope Afghanistan chooses to use this opportunity to farther their preferred lifestyle instead of trying to fight it. Good luck trying to reach those riches and getting them to market!

With the billions we are throwing around 1 billion put into perspective



This is too true to be very funny The next time you hear a politician use the Word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about what it means!

This is too true to be very funny The next time you hear a politician use the Word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about Whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money. A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, But one advertising agency did a good job of Putting that figure into some perspective in One of its releases.

A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were Living in the Stone Age.
D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain, let's take a look at New Orleans It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
. Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D)asked the Congress for $250 BILLION to rebuild New Orleans after Katrina. Interesting number, what does it mean?

A. Well, if you are one of 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, child), you Each gets $516,528.
B. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans, your home gets $1,329,787.
C. Or, if you are a family of four, your family Gets $2,066,012.Washington, D.C... HELLO!!! ... Are all your calculators broken??

Tax payers "you and I" are paying the Taliban not to kill us with our Taxes!



I just heard Main stream media discussing that our tax dollars are being used to pay off the Taliban we are fighting. I always say once they make an issue of something it is too late late. This being no exception I dug up what we discussed last November:

That really peeves me! We talk about corruption in Afghanistan and the Afghan Government. We have discussed often about corrupt President Karzai his corrupt Government, and his drug lord brother being on the CIA payroll. Now we are finding out private security is paying of the Taliban not to blow up our equipment and to not kill us.

First I want to say I guess we are not paying them enough. This is sick! Drugs and corruption seem to be Afghanistan's main industry! Think about the scope of this and the future ramifications as this so called terrorism progresses around the world. We are setting a very dangerous precedent.

I was stunned to find out if we do not pay the Taliban their bribes they blow up bridges kidnap people and generally create mayhem until they do receive their kickbacks. Also the Taliban actually keeps an office in Kabul to review major deals, determine percentages and conduct negotiations. That absolutely amazes me! Is the Taliban Getting a Cut of U.S. Aid? - World Watch - CBS News

Obama is looking at paying off the 70% of the Taliban who are not considered hard core and will switch sides for money as we have heard, They are called the $10 a day Taliban and with 15,000 of them costing $300,000 that would be a drop in the bucket compared to the 165 million per day we are paying to fight this war. Obama prepared to pay off the Taliban

We are paying off the Taliban not to kill us, the Government is totally corrupt, And they do not want to cooperate or fight for their country, no wonder Obama is stymied as to what to do next. I am not! Get us the hell out of this mess in an honorable withdrawal with heads held high. Our troops did their job, the Al Qaeda is gone! Afghani’s do not want us there, they do not want a Democracy, nor do they want a central Government.

* In closing: To top everything off trucking firms use DOD cash to pay off the Taliban, the US pays off the enemy not to attack convoys, Karzai cousins control the key routes to Kandahar, and we are now 9 years into this with no end in sight. Unless we bite the bullet and just get the hell out as our job of defeating Al Qaeda is accomplished we are going to be added to the roster in the graveyard of nations.

On Private Bowe Bergdhal's 24th Birthday I wonder where is Private Bergdahl?


As you may remember, private Bergdahl was capture last June 30th shortly after his 23 Birthday. He is 24 now and I was thinking about him so I thought I would recount the chain of events since his mysterious capture by the Taliban an Afghanistan.

In April the Taliban released a 3rd propaganda video of Bergdahl


This is the 2nd propaganda video of private Bergdahl




The1st taliban video of captured bowe bergdahl




Six months after the Taliban captured Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl and posted their first propaganda video the Taliban posted another now another and we can expect another soon. We are not and will not react to them but they are keeping their propaganda tool alive. That is all that matters until we get him back. I feel for this man, this is Afghanistan not the US. Do you remember the nonsensical rhetoric coming from Fox news? Fox News Contributor Ralph Peters: Taliban Should Kill Captured US ...

Remember when Bergdahl was first captured retired Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters an ex army intelligence officer I have yet to find any proof of combat duty is willing to condemn PFC Bergdahl for desertion. He said if Bergdahl betrayed his fellow soldiers by deserting while in Afghanistan that he would not mind if the Taliban killed him and save the US time and money. I know Peters is a Faux news pundit but I refuse to believe him or anyone there will condemn a fellow American to serve their Political purpose.

Bergdahl was captured June 30th under what is still unknown circumstances. Two US officials said Bergdahl appears to have just wandered off his post unarmed. I also heard he just wandered into Town to visit Afghani's he thought had befriended him. I also heard he was drunk and wandered off base to be picked up by the Taliban. Also that he was grabbed by civilians and turned over to the Taliban. I am stunned to hear betrayal and desertion even from a Faux pundit.

I mean come on. This is Afghanistan. We are perceived as the invaders the infidels the enemy unwanted in their country. I can not envision anyone being that naive, that anti American that stupid as to go A.W.O.L. in Afghanistan. We heard the horror stories over the years. These people are among the most feared ruthless combatants in the world. Walk into their hands? Come on! Wandering into the Sahara Desert naked would be preferential.

Bergdahl is an American an American soldier an adventurer by those who know him. I refuse to believe he is totally stupid! Faux pundit Peters has an obvious proven pension for murder.A while back I remember him advocating the murder off journalists by our military. Peters calls for military killing of Journalists

I guess they can be thankful they are going to Stateside prisons because in the past he has also advocated killing all the prisoners in Gitmo. I do not have to remind you that many were known to be innocent.

Many people including me want to see Bergdahl rescued first and then find out the truth. Despite the idiocy expressed by Faux news pundits Bergdahl has a lot of Americans very concerned. Capture of US Soldier, 23, Shakes Small Idaho Town

Even President Obama expressed his deep concern. 'Heartbroken' President Obama vows to bring back captured US ... You want to wonder why we are fighting the idiocy at Faux but you know they are the enemies of average Americans and everything Obama and our America. I am very concerned about the hate fear and disinformation they are spreading throughout America as to our demise many are buying into it!


* As he turns 24 in Taliban captivity we are still thinking of him and he is in our prayers and thoughts as we wait for his release!

Holy Crap BP's Going to Drill the Arctic! after their piss poor safety record and what they did to the Gulf?



The U.S. Government confirmed the drilling “pause” does not apply to BP’s new project, called Liberty. BP is going to build a small 5 acre island and drill down 2 miles before drilling 6 to 8 miles sideways in another never before done scheme? No way, come on! This boondoggle is still scheduled to go ahead despite their terrible record of so called accidents and disregard for following common sense? despite that blow out valves fail 40% of the time?"

“The deep-water moratorium does not apply to this particular project, which is based from a man-made island and would potentially be drilling directionally into formations under shallow water. If drilling permit applications are submitted for the project, the Department of the Interior will review them at the appropriate time and determine, based on safety and other considerations, whether the project should move forward with drilling under federal waters,” said Kendra Barkoff, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of the Interior.

So they’re really going to even consider a project as complicated as this one involving a drill down two miles, then turn and bore another six to eight miles more to get to oil on Federally owned land. BP? They can not be stupid enough to trust them in the country let alone drilling more precariously than the disaster they just created. BP plans to move ahead with offshore oil drilling in Arctic

What the hell is wrong with us? The hell with the damn pause button someone better hit the stop button! Remember Bush and Cheney's secret White House meetings with the so called energy czars? Remember, the rest of the world by law must use an acoustic valve in case of emergency that would have prevented this. Since oil ran this country Bush and Cheney decided at 1/2 million per valve it was too expensive for oil companies as profit and cutting corners was their only goal not the people and the environment. All inspections of drilling and platforms stopped in 2001. Obama's mistake was not re instituting them instantly but he better do it before he lets those idiots drill in the Arctic.

Remember where life began! We have allowed BP to unleash a volcano of death in the bottom of our chain of life killing life in the ocean that gave life to us. We can not let them add the Arctic to their list of nightmares. Our planet is shrinking. The planet is one life system and everything is interconnected, everything affected by everything else eventually. As I taught my kids, the ocean is like a giant washing machine. What goes around eventually comes around. Why can't people ever look at the big picture, see the big picture, or think of the repercussions of their actions before they act?

BP has done absolutely nothing right period from the get go or the disaster in the Gulf never would have happened. They obviously have never used the necessary technology to deal with this disaster they just got the equipment so they could use the lie that they were prepared. Nothing has gone right! Minimizing the ecological damage and helping the people whose lives they have destroyed they could care less about. Minimizing their financial liability and staying in control of their disaster is all that matters. We can not let them ply their destruction in the Arctic too!

look at the videos, they cracked the damn sea bed Can we afford to let them do this in the Arctic?

Jean-Michel Cousteau urges widespread involvement to ban any new offshore oil drilling and to increase support for renewable energy.

He correctly said the Gulf is the greatest environmental disaster of our lifetimes and it has only just begun. Jean-Michel Cousteau, one of the world's leading ocean explorers, has spoken of his “frustration at the human species” over the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster. Dispatch from the Gulf Oil Spill: Philippe Cousteau Tours the Wetlands, Oil Refineries (Photos and Video)

This is going around the world as it is going to the Gulf Stream. I was ridiculed when I first said that but with the likes of Jean Michael Cousteau stating this is a chain that will kill everything it touches in the ocean and everything that lives because of it "think about that" also that it will get into every other ocean we have still unfolding a disaster of epic proportions just beginning to unfold. We can not add the Arctic to that!

I am sick of hearing how much BP spent, they cracked the gulf floor, $100 billion would be a down payment



BP spill costs hit $2 billion; debt offer due

BP said Monday its costs arising from the continuing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico hit the $2 billion mark as the environmental disaster reached the grim 60-day mark and as the oil major reportedly set plans to float $10 billion in debt. That's a joke! They cracked the sea bed floor, wait until we hit the 2 year mark and they realize they will have to nuke it and 100 billion is a pittance. Think about that!

undeniable video showing they cracked the sea bed floor All right I have to tell you! You know from day one BP has been lying about what they did and how bad this is and will get. This is no exception! I was using this video and showing it to others for days. All of a sudden no matter where I go including cnn or what I do the video is dead. You can still see the story at the link but when you try to watch the videos you get a message that the connection has timed out.I think I have it back so please take a sobering look, there are many videos

Meanwhile, BP said more than 65,000 claims have been submitted and more than 32,000 payments have been made. As you know BP agreed last week to create a $20 billion fund to pay for costs associated with the spill, but the company repeated Monday that it is too early to quantify other potential costs and liabilities. The company is also in talks with banks on arranging another $20 billion in loans, on top of this week's $10 billion debt offer. A final $20 billion is expected to come from asset sales over the next two years, according to reports.

I am sick This is so bad and they are still trying to hide the truth until as became practice under Bush, it becomes reality and they have to confront it. Like it or not even they are not big enough to handle this financially and they will have to file for bankruptcy.


Industry experts warned that the out-of-control well will go on spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico for the next two years or more if all attempts to contain or plug the gusher fail.The estimates, based on new figures supplied by Hayward, suggest the potential environmental and economic devastation would far outstrip the damage done so far by the ruptured well, which has been spewing for 68 days.

So what does he do? The idiot went back to England and watched his yacht race around the Isle of Wight. Someone better make believe if they have to, that this oil disaster in the gulf is a life changing, planet changing, epic man made event and make a serious effort to put this out. Instead everyone including the Government, main stream media, and Tony Haywire treat this as usual.

They no longer know if it can even be stopped. Think about that and the Gulf stream for a minute. It is time to give some serious thought to dropping a low grade nuke on the well and turn the sea bed to glass. It will end life as they know it in the gulf but like it or not that has already happened. There is said to be a billion barrels of oil there, just imagine that entering the gulf stream and going around the world. You do not think life and the planet will not be changer forever? Come on!

I have no uncertainty in Bush's guaranteed breakdown but Twin Baghdad car bombings kill at least 26 people in a twin car bombing in Baghdad, officials say, as the country's political uncertainty mounts.



At least 26 people are killed in a twin car bombing in Baghdad, officials say, as the country's political uncertainty mounts.

War-torn Baghdad is the worst, a survey said last month. For its annual survey, Mercer assessed the quality of living in 221 cities worldwide ranking Baghdad #221 the absolute worst. Baghdad ranked 221st, remaining at the bottom of the list with rankings also based on water availability and drinkability, waste removal, quality of sewage systems, air pollution and traffic congestion. The basic necessities of life! Remember this? vienna is best city to live in, Baghdad worst: study

A 2007 U.S. Report gave Blame to Iraqi's for Bush's Guaranteed Failures!

While we continuously listened to the lies and propaganda that Bush has had many successes in Iraq and that his surge succeeded We already know but many of Bush's declared successes are in fact failures. Low and behold it all boils down to Security fears. What a surprise! What happened to his successful surge? Kill all the Al Qaeda you want they can not still provide the basic needs of life in a successful society.

Isn't that Bush's fault? If he had stayed in Afghanistan as he should have instead of diverting from the war on terror to attack Iraq so he could start implementing his new middle east order, Iraq may have had a Dictator but they would have security, electricity, water, fuel, and a lot more than they have now or will have in the future.

Al Maliki, Malawi, or whoever takes control they cannot and will not bring stability back to Iraq. Despite the political rhetoric it will get a lot worse and then spread throughout the entire middle east. We will never be able to bring services anywhere close to the level they were at when Saddam was in power. It is laughable to think that anyone thought they would be better post Saddam.

The Congressional investigation into reconstruction in Iraq found that six out of eight projects the Bush administration claimed to be a success were falling apart, throwing doubts over the long-term viability of much of the $30 billion program. I have to tell you, the entire program, the surge, Democracy, everything, was guaranteed lost from the get go. What ever is built will be destroyed.

The report which was published 3 years ago but could be today, looked at hospital projects that at last count there was only one capable of operating at all. It does not matter how much money or effort we put into Iraq. Iraqi's as a whole do not want new Iraqi order they want their own version. They want the basic needs of life satisfied and they do not care who supplies them in the end.


Each sect is only concerned with looking out for their own interest and future and as we are told to ignore everyday because it is not "the reality on the ground" reality is much worse! The inspectors found serious plumbing and electrical failures due to looting, equipment lying idle to me primarily because people are scared to death to venture out into the reality Bush has created for them. US report blaming Iraqi's for failures

From the Political system to the oil Industry, Hospitals, electricity, plumbing, security, everything, It will not be turned around and will only get a lot worse before it spreads throughout the entire middle east. Supposedly we are hoping to start withdrawing our troops this year and have them all out by next fall. Regardless of what happens we better stick to that schedule, leave whatever supplies the Iraqi's need, and see just how much they want to live together under a system that will supply their needs. It is in the end up to them!

I have to reiterate something I have said too many times since Bush chose to ignore all warnings of total civil war spreading throughout the entire Middle East so he could attack Iraq and straighten out the Middle East as God spoke to him and instructed him to. You know I firmly believe and have said so a million times by now that since 9/11 everything was construed to allow Bush to gain the power he needed to prosecute his new order not just in the Middle East but on the entire world! He diverted from Afghanistan to get back into the Middle East with the goal of setting up a larger safety zone for Israel and going after Iran.

Bush has created a hell on earth for Iraq that he calls liberty and success with promises to spread it throughout the entire Middle East. The breakdown we knew would happen and Bush ignored continues!

Last November I asked: Natanz, Qom, Arak, Isfahan, Bushehr, how many more nuclear facilities? Now we know, 4!





Iran raises stakes by announcing four new nuclear reactors, God willing you'll be punished a bit and sit at the negotiating table like a polite child,!

We are finding out how more every day and it isn't good as Iran was to build 2 new nuclear enrichment sites' and Israel unveiled a drone that 'can reach Iran'. We managed to get that changed to four with our new sanctions. Iran to build 4 new nuclear reactors

I know some of you have been critical about my stance on Iran over the years but I am convinced Iran, the IRG, Ahmadinejad, Ayatollah Khamenei, they have no good intentions with their nuclear program. The years of lies are just starting to come to a head! We just learned that Saudi Arabia has opened its airspace so Israel will be able to attack Iran's nuclear sites. Seems like Iran is building redundancy and taunting Israel to move quicker. They are not going to stop what we started in the 50's ith our atoms for peace program.

We discussed that by attacking Iraq and further destabilizing the Middle East Bush freed Iran to interfere where they can and they are! He freed Iran up to pursue her version of new middle East order by interfering wherever she could while Bush was doing the same thing with his Middle East Democratization program. I think you can see how successful Bush and Cheney were with chaos creating Middle East Democracy program but you are barely seeing the results they created in Iran.

As you know, when asked by a journalist how he felt upon returning to Iran in 1979 after 15 years in exile. Khomeini’s curt, one-word reply was “nothing” Whoa! From day one of his return to Iran Khomeini expressed no love for Iran only a love of the atom bomb. The drive even then was to possess a nuclear weapon though that desire is still denied until Iran can get their hands on one.

I have tried to give Iran the benefit of the doubt when they say their nuclear desires are peaceful knowing they could use nuclear power as an energy source for their growing population. I have always asserted that perceived need could be cover for the real goal of developing a nuclear weapon. I now believe it is and I think it is too late but the IAEA has finally woken up to that fact!

* Just one day after Mohamed ElBaradei finally castigated Iran for what he finally believes is a clandestine nuclear weapons program the IAEA demanded Iran freeze all operations at the so called secret nuclear site on an IRG base in the holy city of Qum that even G W Bush knew about and never said anything. We knew that would not stop any more than anything else would.

It is a little late to start expressing serious concern over potential military designs with their nuclear program though I am greatly encouraged that even China and Russia may be behind a resolution further sanctioning Iran. However there is no way the IRG (Iranian Revolutionary Guard) Khamenei, or Ahmadinejad, will do anything the world tells them to let alone curtail their “God given” nuclear program.

Israel also for what it is worth said they would put off any thought of action against Iran’s nuclear abilities. The targets we know about are growing let alone the ones we know nothing about and you can bet they exist. Duplicity is their best friend in this instance. You know they will never cooperate with what we want as Bush freed them to do as they want and that will continue.

As damaging info builds by the day I reiterate: IRG Ahmadinejad, the stolen election, the killing and imprisonment of the children of the Revolution, the violent crushing of all opposition, the clandestine nuclear program, It is all making sense, beware! Natanz, Qom, Arak, Isfahan, Bushehr, how many more nuclear facilities? How will this end? Iran will never relent period until they attain nuclear weapons!

Cheney-Bush Still Gushing Toxic History into Our World by Don Williams a prize-winning columnist



I am impressed! People often accuse me of blaming everything on Bush and I do. I continue to be told to get over him because he is gone. My response was and always will be that we will never be able to forget him because we will never get out from the damage he and Cheney did and created for our present and future. I like many of you have said all of this numerous times but no one listens because we are not famous. I was so impressed to see that I finally heard the truth from someone who is listened to. Don Williams is a prize-winning columnist, short story writer and the founding editor and publisher of New Millennium Writings. It is so right on that I thought you should read it for yourself and contact him if you would.

DON WILLIAMS FOR BUZZFLASH
In 2003 I wrote, "If George W. Bush had run for president on a platform of making the world uninhabitable for humankind, he could scarcely have done better at starting us down such a path."

His first nail in the, um, platform was to allow Dick Cheney to select himself as vice-president. His second was in elevating Cheney to the status of co-president almost immediately. In his second administration--two wars and a million deaths later--Bush demoted Cheney, but by then it was too late. Cheney had unleashed forces that will haunt the world for decades if not centuries.

Even now oil gushes from a hole in the bottom of the sea, thanks to Bush, Cheney, Halliburton and BP.

Don’t get me wrong. Obama is not absolved. He’s been worse than disappointing in this crisis. It would’ve been heartening to see him direct an armada of ships from many nations into the Gulf of Mexico to suck up oil and otherwise contain the damage. It would’ve been wonderful to see him in boots and protective gear leading armies of volunteers and actual soldiers to scoop oil off beaches and clean feathers of sea-gracing birds. It would’ve been marvelous to’ve beheld a panel of actual scientists telling us what was really going on and rapidly assessing options proposed by everyone from actor Kevin Costner to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.
Still, make no mistake. The Great Gulf Gusher of 2010—like institutionalized torture, never-ending Middle Eastern war, unprecedented domestic spying, the great economic collapse of 2008, unprecedented media lies and so much else I’ve documented--was a Bush-Cheney production.

After losing the popular vote in 2000, yet winning the White House by one Republican vote on the Supreme Court, the first order of business for Bush-Cheney was to appoint a special energy task force to write energy policy for the new administration. As author Rodrigue Tremblay ("The New American Empire") and many others have documented, Cheney, former CEO of Halliburton, brought in his old cronies from across the corporate energy spectrum—oil, gas, coal, nuclear, etc., and held meetings—most of them secret--for over 100 days in 2001.
From then on it was "drill baby drill."

In quick succession, Bush-Cheney recommended ways to expedite all sorts of energy development, named Iraq as a competitor to watch, invaded that country—with Halliburton a major actor--cut regulations for all sorts of activities, lopped budgets for clean, alternative energy programs, proposed tax cuts for fossil fuel producers by over $30 billion and proposed opening Alaska’s National Wildlife Refuge to drilling.

The Senate rejected this bill, but Bush-Cheney followed up in 2005 by subsidizing the oil companies by some $27 billion.

"Then again, on July 14, 2008, just months before leaving office, President George W. Bush signed an executive order to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts."

More to the point, "the Interior Department's Minerals Management Service decided on Aug. 30, 2005, that oil companies, rather than the government, were in the best position for determining their operations’ environmental impacts. In effect, MMS decided on that date to de facto merge its services with those of the oil companies, even to the point of letting the oil industry fill out MMS's inspection reports," writes Tremblay.

"Oil companies persuaded the Bush-Cheney administration that expensive security measures were not required, even for drilling in deep oceanic waters. For example, MMS decided not to require oil companies to install a remote-control oil blowout preventer on their deep-sea oil drilling rigs, i.e. an acoustic blow off valve that immediately chokes off the flow of oil in an emergency. Even though they are expensive, (they cost $500,000 each), most offshore oil rigs in other countries—in Norway and in Brazil for example, but not in the U.S. or the U.K— have such a switch installed for cutting off the flow of oil in an emergency by closing a valve located on the ocean floor. No such emergency switch was available on April 20, 2010, when BP's 18,000-foot-drilling-deep floating oil rig blew up, a catastrophe that killed eleven workers, injured many others, and which has spewed, so far, as much as 100 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico…."

As I say, Obama is not absolved. Just weeks before this well blew, he proposed opening much more of our off-coastal sea floors to drilling, and he kept far too many Bush-Cheney appointments in place. But let’s be clear. This is not his gusher.
It’s one more tragic legacy from the most destructive co-presidency in history--Bush-Cheney. These erstwhile gushers of toxic history wreak havoc with our world still.

Israel to Ease Gaza Blockade, Gaza can thank Iran but Iran is still going to try and break the sea blockade to get the war started!




A Sop? Israel 'easing' Gaza land blockade, sea routes closed, nope!



Israel has agreed to ease its blockade of the Gaza Strip and allow more humanitarian aid into the Hamas-ruled territory by land. Israel's Security Cabinet approved the plan Thursday. Israel to ease Gaza blockade

A week ago I wrote once again about Gaza, Palestine, Ahmadinejad, and the Israeli blockade and how it will end in war. If the Revolutionary Guard escort those ships that have promised to continue to try to break the blockade that will begin this war period. I thought I better reiterate in part what I just said, this is not good.

Clinton stupidly warned Iran not to pull stunts

so Iran offers escort for Gaza ships That would certainly be a game changer. What would happen then?

Iran's red crescent to try and break Israeli blockade That will do it too. This is getting ready to break open!

Israel was created in 1948, after UN Resolution 181 partitioned the territory of the British Mandate for Palestine into two states for Jews and Palestinian Arabs. At the time, there were approximately 1.2 million Arabs and 650,000 Jews in all of Palestine. The Arabs objected to the creation of the Jewish state and fought a war against it. The Arab side lost the war, and the Palestinian state never really came into being.

The territory allotted to the Palestinian state by the UN partition resolution was taken over by Israel and Jordan. About 780, 000 Palestinians became refugees, many of them living in the Gaza strip as well as in the West Bank. Background and map of Palestine Netanyahu rejects UN proposal for joint US, Israel, Turkey probe Israel wants the truth hidden and we will let them!

You know, first reading how Israel and Palestine was allotted their territories in 1948 I do not condone that Israel has not been forced to adhere to that resolution. We, the US Britain and Europe especially are as guilty as Israel for not insisting Israel adhere to UN Resolution 181

You know I say often that we are Israel's lap dog, her pit Bull that will do the fighting for her when she gets in trouble. Israel I came to realize is the worlds chief warmonger and the US the enforcer. It became obvious that coming to Israel's rescue would be how the US has the excuse to go after Iran.

The Israel, Palestinian, Iran, Syria, Middle East issue will never be resolved peacefully Knowing that I have to agree with Ahmadinejad when he said if the US and Europe felt so bad for what happened to the Jews during WW2 then they should have given them part of their country.

The best we could hope for is an adherence to UN resolution 181. That will never happen either and all I can see is a total Middle East breakdown that Bush guaranteed when he attacked Iraq to help Israel set up their buffer zone. If the Iranian Revolutionary Guard board those ships and escort them to break the Israeli Blockade of Gaza as they have offered to do it will guarantee war with Iran, take the heat off Iran and the dissidents protesting the corrupt regime, guarantee US involvement and worse.

The 3 year old blockade has succeeded in nothing but perpetuating the underground tunnel industry up to now. Egypt has opened it's border in response to Israel's bloody attack on the Turkish ship trying to break the blockade. Israel's insistence on keeping the sea blockade will only succeed in getting the war with Iran going and then we will get pulled in!

BP oil spill caused by 'negligence or misconduct', says drilling partner as word comes 2 years may be best case scenario

     video that show the sea floor is cracked

I heard the best case scenario might be 2 years. You think 2 months is bad think about 2 years. They better drop a low grade nuke on it and turn the sea bed to glass. This is a grossly negligent epic disaster!

I am sick of hearing MSM rating BP and Obama on how they are doing during this oil disaster. Those idiots all think this is some kind of a frigging joke to play with and have fun as usual while capitalizing off their senseless, useless, mindless crap. I have been ridiculed by some for saying since day one that this is a disaster of epic proportions and it is becoming more obvious every day yet the games continue.

I am so disappointed! I voted for Obama and had great hopes he would repair America and the Bush destroyed world order. However he has not come through on anything and has already failed us, the gulf, and the entire world with this still growing oil disaster. The Gulf is screwed and Obama has not stepped up to take charge. Life for those fisherman as they knew it is over.

The latest estimate as to the amount of oil spewing into the Gulf in this man made below the ocean oil volcano is 35000 to 60000 barrels per day. That is 2.5 million gallons per day. That is an Exxon Valdez every 4 or 5 days people. This just gets worse and worse every day. They expect this to be under control in August but they will be lucky to have it stopped by Christmas if at all. Don't forget the million gallons of life killing dispersant mixed in and that this will get into the gulf stream and go around the world causing its destruction.

President Obama correctly predicted Biblical times are ahead but we will be victorious as long as all Nations hold together. He is right! He drew sharp contrasts to the go it alone war monger Bush he proceeds. Biblical times are ahead and much worse than he realizes because of President Bush and Islamic militants. Religion on both sides of the issue guaranteed it. Now this man made Gulf oil disaster guaranteed it!

looking at today's unwinding horrors we will be facing long into the future. We watch Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, Iran, Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, China and Taiwan, North and South Korea, water pollution, air pollution, global warming, water wars, food wars, numerous future wars in the making, under Bush's war mongering I have been long convinced we had not had the defining moment of our time, our moment of extreme challenge.

9/11 was not the defining moment of our time as we are told,that event has not occurred yet but that moment is coming and soon and it could very well be upon us. A lot of people tell me to get over Bush but the US and the world will never be able to as he upset US and world balance that will forever affect us all.

Up to now and all our horror Bush has been the defining moment of our time and this growing oil disaster is no exception but he had other Presidential company. Clinton started the deregulation of oil companies, Bush/Cheney made it criminal, and Obama knew it but failed to reign it in.

BP oil spill caused by 'negligence or misconduct', says drilling partner as word comes 2 years may be best case scenario

Industry experts warned that the out-of-control well will go on spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico for the next two years or more if all attempts to contain or plug the gusher fail.The estimates, based on new figures supplied by Hayward, suggest the potential environmental and economic devastation would far outstrip the damage done so far by the ruptured well, which has been spewing for 64 days.

So what does he do? The idiot went back to England and watched his yacht race around the Isle of Wight. Someone better make believe if they have to, that this oil disaster in the gulf is a life changing, planet changing, epic man made event and make a serious effort to put this out. Instead everyone including the Government, main stream media, and Tony Hayware treat this as usual.

They no longer know if it can even be stopped. Think about that and the Gulf stream for a minute. It is time to give some serious thought to dropping a low grade nuke on the well and turn the sea bed to glass. It will end life as they know it in the gulf but like it or not that has already happened.

9/11 was not the defining moment of our lifetime but this BP oil disaster very well may be!

Up to now and all our horror Bush has been the defining moment of our time and this growing oil disaster is no exception but he had other Presidential company. Clinton started the deregulation of oil companies, Bush/Cheney made it criminal, and Obama knew it but failed to reign it in.

I keep reprinting something I wrote 5 or 6 years ago illustrating we were in the nurturing stage the final stage of the planets life cycle and how critical it is that we treat her accordingly. The Gulf disaster shows how tenuous our situation is and could very well be the defining moment of our lifetime and our future. We are no longer sure we can even stop it and the latest I heard was an experts suggestion we drop a giant conventional bomb on it. Shortly the planets life sustaining ecosystems will no longer have the ability to sustain the current population of man. I thought I better reprint this!

We can not afford to destroy them altogether. That complete destruction and no less is what we have facing us right now. It would do man, the world well to wake up to that fact and act accordingly. This is exactly what will happen if there is another unnecessary world war. Countries must be made to realize that what they have today is all they are going to get. We can trade throughout the world for the items necessary for ones civilization and survival. However, the domination of the past must be history or we will be. We must take care of what we have. It is all we are going to get. The world must be made to realize that we march into the future with what boundaries and countries we have or suffer the dire consequences.

Our prime concern, our only concern at this point in mans and the planets life cycle has to be one of self preservation. The world must wake up to the fact that preservation of man and the planet has to be our only goal and ultimate victory. Shortly we will illustrate the life cycles in any life form and you will understand where man and the planet are in them today. We went into this in great detail in our first two books. It is very obvious and very plain, it bears repeating as we seem to be learning nothing. As we said in the past, life moves only in one direction, forward. We must not go back or attempt to go back to a cycle of life that man and the planet have already grown through and survived. We will not the next time. We have lived through the development stage of man and this planet. It is long overdue for us to get it together as a species and realize this and then face this important fact. We are now in the preservation stage of any life form. We have reached and passed the maturity stage of any life form as a species and as a planet. World wars, world dominance, world destruction, the times for that are passed. It is up to us as a world body to realize this and act accordingly.

Life’s stages


* The Infantile Stage – This is mans longest stage to date. With some luck we can surpass this in our maturity stage, our nurturing stage. Man was very much in his developmental stage. From mans beginning caveman day’s right up through The Dark Ages. Man was very much a live and learn being. You can not accuse man of that today. Man has lost this ability since what we will refer to as The Learning Stage. The 20th century seems to have killed this ability with its perceived lack of need. He now thinks he knows better and he knows everything. We know the thought as most of us have children. He wrongly thinks he has all the answers. We would do well to remember this phase of life.

* The Learning Stage – This period marks the end of The Dark Ages. The end of the Dark Ages coincidentally enough is marked by another perfectly cyclical event known as the Christian Crusades. This was in a point of time appropriate for the horror. The horrific thing is that Islam is going through this cycle right now. Their version of the Christian Crusaders is the Islamist Jihadists. This is occurring at a point in time when mans and the planets life cycles are beyond accepting or tolerating this behavior. At the point of time of the horrors that the Christian Crusaders committed they were accepted and tolerated.

This period covers the end of the Dark Ages up to the 20th century. This period covers the birth of mans great Religions. It covers the development of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. With the exception of the maturing of the Muslim Religion it marks the maturing of these Religions. It marks their role in the world order. This is again with the exception of the Muslim Religion. It is that time of Religious maturity which there is no place for in the world today. We, the world, humanity, have already gone through that. As a result we do not find what is happening with the Islamist Jihad particularly palatable. This period also opened the way for colonization. It marked the point in mans life cycle when the forceful taking of another country was the accepted norm. This was the time in mans and the planets life for needless pointless death and destruction. It was survivable by both man and the planet. This time is over and can no longer be accepted or tolerated.

*The Maturing Stage – This period includes WW1, WW2, and the recognition of man made hazards to mans and the planets life. This was the period in mans and the planets life cycles when world war was survivable by man and the planet. Our weapons are now too horrific for man or the planet to survive. Life only moves in one direction and for a reason. We can not allow any Nation to try and slide backwards and return to those ways. The time for that in the life cycle of the planet is over. We are becoming aware as to the frailty of the planets life sustaining ecosystems.

* The Nurturing Stage – This is mans mature stage. This is mans preservation period. The time is now. This period marks mans awakening as to the realization of mans negative impact on the life sustaining life cycle of the planet as a whole. This period marks the awakening of man as to the as to the necessity of revitalizing Natures life sustaining ecosystems. This period marks the necessity for an end to all out war. We must come to the realization that as a world we must destroy all advanced weaponry and their systems throughout the world. This is an absolute necessity for the survival of man and the planet. We must form a world board to ensure compliance by the entire world. It is for the benefit and survival of mankind and the planet. We now know the fragility of our planet and our negative role in it. As a world we must act responsibly, be held accountable, and act accordingly.

** Man has taken his ability to live and learn, an ability that has sustained and nurtured him for thousand of years and forgotten he ever had it. It had served us well throughout are creativity. Through the beginning of the 20th century man has been going through the maturity stages of his existence. Like a maturing teenager man now thinks he has all the answers. However he has none of the right ones. Would you treat your Grandmother like this? That is something you can relate to. We must all "whoever is responsible"be held personally accountable for knowingly and unwittingly bringing about the end of the civilized world and our planet as we know and need it.

America leaves Iraq a toxic legacy of dumped hazardous materials far worse than the horror they describe!



American troops going home from Iraq leaving behind a legacy that is literally toxic. An investigation in five Iraqi provinces has found that hazardous material from US bases is being dumped locally rather than sent back to America, in clear breach of Pentagon rules. Remember the things we kept finding buried by the Iraqi army for years in the desert and all through Iraq? I am sure we have been doing the same thing.

North and west of Baghdad, engine oil is leaking from 55-gallon drums into dusty ground, open acid canisters sit within easy reach of children, and discarded batteries lie close to irrigated farmland. A 2009 Pentagon document shown to The Times by a private contractor working with US soldiers mentions “an estimated 11 million pounds of hazardous waste” produced by American troops.

Even this figure appears to be only a partial estimate. Brigadier General Kendall Cox, who is responsible for engineering and infrastructure in Iraq, told The Times yesterday that he was in the process of disposing of 14,500 tons of oil and soil contaminated with oil. “This has accumulated over seven years,” he said.

Iraqis who have come into contact with some of the material suffer from rashes and blistering on their hands and feet. They also complain of gagging and coughing. Rats near sites where waste was dumped have died and lie next to soiled containers. Private recycling companies located within American bases have allegedly mixed hazardous material with ordinary scrap and passed it on to local dealers. “By the time we see this stuff it is too late,” said Abu Saif.

Some of the dumped materials have labels identifying them as US military property or come with paperwork from the Department of Defense. A printout was attached to a discarded canister of sulphuric acid, a highly corrosive liquid used in waste water treatment. It said of the substance: “Causes severe burns to skin and lungs ... Get immediate medical attention ... Use gas mask.” America leaves Iraq a toxic legacy of dumped hazardous materials

Although the Pentagon has sent mixed signals about the effects of depleted uranium, Iraqi doctors believe that it is responsible for a significant increase in cancer and birth defects in the region. Many researchers outside Iraq, and several U.S. veterans organizations, agree; they also suspect depleted uranium of playing a role in Gulf War Syndrome. depleted uranium toxins and hazardous wastes responsible for increased birth defects

As you know, we have also used weapons containing depleted Uranium and didn't really think too much about it because I really wasn't sure but depleted uranium has not only turned Iraq and Afghanistan into uninhabitable nuclear holocaust for millions of years. Remember the Gulf war Syndrome? Depleted uranium was also used at Tora Bora. I was not aware of that! Cancer among soldiers is rampant!

We are giving our own soldiers a death sentence. Why are we not testing our soldiers? You know why!Anyway it is also blowing over the rest of the planet causing Americans, Europeans, and others to die from radiation diseases. Anyway, look at what we have done to Iraq as part of the hell on earth Bush purposely created for Iraqi's Obama has been adding to. Hundreds of thousands homeless, Iraq incapable of supplying the basic needs of life, food, housing, safety, and we are leaving them in a still erupting civil war in an environment that will kill them. That is some legacy. A legacy only Bush could be proud of! We are leaving Iraq as a giant hazardous waste dump!

Pakistani intelligence funds and trains Taliban, expert argues! Duhh no kidding that is old news

                                    ISI and CIA agents


Matt Waldman on Taliban-ISI links



Pakistan's intelligence agency, the ISI, calls the shots for the Taliban and other insurgent groups in Afghanistan, training, funding and giving shelter to them, a Harvard academic claims in a new paper that Pakistan's military dismissed as "rubbish." That isn't rubbish it is old news. Please read the story at the link then think back! Pakistani intelligence funds and trains Taliban, expert argues

Remember The 911 movie, press for truth has got to be the very best movie exposing the 9/11 cover up. Bush, Rice, Cheney, everyone of them said over and over that there was no forewarning that terrorists were going to strike and that planes could be used as missiles to bring down buildings.

The movie documents factually that we heard in 1995 that planes may be used but never concerned ourselves about it. We received multiple warnings prior to 9/11 that terrorists were around, planes would be used, and the towers were coming down. Surprising to me was that prior to 9/11 one of the hijackers backed out and turned himself in, telling authorities what was going to happen. He was given 2 lie detector tests that he passed with ease. I don't recall who in the Administration said it. But they were told to let him go and send him back to London.

9/11 was allowed to happen for a reason! Once it did occur we attacked Afghanistan of course. As you remember, Bin laden and many of the leadership were trapped in Tora Bora. In the past I have said Bin Laden was allowed to escape so bush could use him to keep fervor up and Afghani's were credited with being responsible for his escape. We knew there were four ways out and only guarded three. We gave them a way out.

Not only that but I remember hearing about a 1,000 car caravan but it was never mentioned that we were bombing the area around it but allowed the 1,000 car caravan carrying the Bin Laden entourage to escape into Pakistan and at night, come on. Now this part really irks me and I for one never heard anything about it and still don't. As far as I am concerned Pakistan is no friend of America's and will partner with India and turn on us when the time comes. We also heard over and over how Bush would track down any Al Qaeda finances and try anyone involved. He made a big deal out of the fact that someone outed the fact that we were checking out electronic transfers etc. Something he himself announced.


Then I watched the movie and find out that the head of the Pakistani ISI transferred $100,000 to Muhammad Atta just prior to the 9/11 attacks. This gets worse. Primarily because not only do we have records of this financing as well as pictures but we ignored it and supposedly are in cahoots with them. What happened to anyone caught aiding, abetting, or financing terrorism being hunted down? To make it worse, the joke of a sideshow they called the 9/11 commission hearings was an obvious farce.



We knew Rice and others were lying and Bush and Cheney were allowed to hold hands and lie together (take that any way you want). I think I vaguely remember hearing this but like everything else it was dismissed as insignificant. Anyway, the guy who ran Bush's election campaign if I remember correctly, is the one running the commission hearings. He was the one who decided what was significant and what wasn't as well as what questions could be asked. What the hell is that. This entire thing was stacked against the truth and the facts getting out. It is our duty as Americans to hold these liars accountable. We owe it to the victims. We owe it to our children. We owe it to our history and we owe it to ourselves and this underhanded crap just continues! How? Why?

To reiterate, 9/11 was allowed to happen. As you may remember, Bush was looking for something to happen that would put the country and the world behind what he already had plans to do. 9/11 gave him that something.He had plans right from the beginning to establish a new societal, middle east, and world order. That is why it was important to him to whip up a media and public fury which of course, he has done.


He then used the excuse of 9/11 to attack Iraq and unsettle the middle east so he could further his idea of a new middle east and world order. In doing so he guaranteed the loss of Afghanistan as well as Iraq and the entire middle east Of course lying all the while and whipping up as much support and frenzy as he could in the media and minds he controls.At this point it behooves him to continue to ignore reality and continue to whip up a frenzy so he can continue staying the course in order to further prosecute his new middle east and world order.

Saudi Arabia's ulterior motive in opening its airspace so Israel can attack Iran is the Saudi-Iranian Neo Cold War


Saudi Arabia gives Israel clear skies to attack Iranian nuclear sites 


At the same time  as it denies cooperating with preparations for a potential Israeli attack on Iran, Saudi Arabia prepares for strike of its own. Saudi Arabia’s air force has signed a deal to upgrade its fleet of 150 strike aircraft and procure advanced weaponry to respond to an Iranian military threat while simultaneously denying reports that the country is coordinating with Israel over a possible strike against Iran’s nuclear sites.
  Saudi's upgrading fighter jets to counter Iran's threat 

“The Saudis are very worried about the growing power of Iran,”I use to be concerned that the old confrontation would erupt in war between Iran and at the least US armed Saudi Arabia?

You can not blame them but I had no idea the dissention goes all the way back to the naming of the Gulf. Saudi’s know it as the Gulf of Arabia and I can remember that but Iran calls it the Persian Gulf as the rest of us seem to now.

Both Iran and Saudi Arabia have been using Lebanon as their battlefront up to now able to avoid direct confrontation. Iran has pumped millions of dollars in supplies and arms much to the consternation of her suffering people while Saudi Arabia has been supporting the Palestinian Authority. As you know, Iran has many problems at home plus the UN who is trying to keep them from developing nuclear weapons. Now Iran is going to sanction attempting to break Israel's blockade of Gaza to take the heat off them and get direct confrontation with Israel going.

While the world had been engrossed following events in Iran since the election was stolen to keep fascist Ahmadinejad and he fascist agenda in control Iran has been fueling a rebel war in Yemen and what a surprise it has extended into Saudi Arabia. A propaganda war is also being waged. Egypt and Saudi Arabia have pulled the plug on Iran’s Arabic speaking TV. It makes me wonder why they did not do that during the height of the protests when Iran’s Government sanctioned channel was televising pure lies and propaganda? I find it hard to believe that Iran is that vulnerable in that area!

So far there has been no direct confrontation. However I absolutely saw what I have been warning about since Bush diverted from Afghanistan to attack Iraq and get back in the middle east to create a new middle east (dis)order! I do not give a damn what anyone says. Bush Cheney and their Democratization program in an already historically unstable middle east set all of this and more in motion!

The hell on earth Bush created for Iraqi’s will engulf the entire Middle East before it encompasses the entire world if we can not contain it. Under Bush we broke a long standing tradition of not adding fuel to the Middle East fire by supplying weapons. We are now, including advanced weaponry and missile defense systems. The Middle East breakdown Bush started armed and funded will continue under Obama. This up to now proxy war in the middle east is under way and Saudi Arabia is hoping Israel keeps Iran busy until the US is forced to come to their rescue as you know they will. Wait, watch, and listen, this is not good for the world and our future!

Israeli intelligence experts say that Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan are at least as worried as themselves and the West about an Iranian nuclear arsenal.Israel has sent missile-class warships and at least one submarine capable of launching a nuclear warhead through the Suez Canal for deployment in the Red Sea within the past year, as both a warning to Iran and in anticipation of a possible strike.

When all is said and done we hear our navy is not over extended and I disagree but their assets will be used here but it would be tough on the country at a bad time. Food, gas and oil, will be rationed but as you know I have said before, knowing a nuclear Iran would to common sensed eyes mean a power balance in the middle east you have to come to the conclusion that is not wanted.

Israel will never accept a nuclear Iran and will attack. Whoever is President will come to their rescue! Once again war will occur to prevent war. That makes sense yeah! Again as I keep saying, at one time the threat of mutual destruction use to be a deterrence. Today it seems to be the goal.

Afghanistan the curse of natural resources!



Afghanistan the Saudi Arabia of Lithium The China of Capitalism, success or failure of tribalism is up to them, Afghanistan the curse of natural resources! US geologists find $1trillion of mineral reserves in Afghanistan, the deposits, which include large veins of iron, copper, cobalt, gold and lithium are so large they could alter the Afghan economy, American geologists said after discovering the resources.

Plans were announced to start mining copper in the Aynak valley, southwest of Kabul, which holds one of the world’s biggest untapped copper deposits, estimated to be worth up to $88_billion (£44 billion) – more than double Afghanistan’s entire gross domestic product (GDP) in 2007.

In November, 2008 a 30-year lease was sold to the China Metallurgical Group for $3 billion, making it the biggest foreign investment and private business venture in Afghanistan’s history.

However despite the latest finds, with no mining industry in place it would take decades to develop an infrastructure to exploit the vast mineral reserves which are scattered throughout the country including along the border with Pakistan where some of the most intense fighting has taken place. US geologists find $1trillion of mineral reserves in Afghanistan

China‘s involvement in Afghanistan is more than overdue! US troops providing security for China’s monstrous copper mine

China is mining what may be the largest deposit of copper on the planet. They stand to make tens of Billions and we are defending their interests.

For now this is justified as we have to be in the area anyway but once China builds a railroad in order to move the copper to port that better come to an end. You can bet every inch of that railroad and port is going to need 24/7 security. It will be a major target as the Taliban seek to keep what is Afghanistan’s theirs!

China should have her troops there providing her own security at the very least. If they were helping in Afghanistan as they should they would be less inclined to be trying to gum up the works for us everywhere else. We must make this a world effort if we are to succeed. I am happy to see we are moving in that direction.

In closing there are 1 trillion dollars worth of mineral resources alone. Enough to make them a power house if they could only come together in some manner and had someone in control of the country that knew how to capitalize from it. They are throughout Afghanistan including the Afghan Pakistan border which is significant to me.

There is enough lithium alone to power laptops computers Ipads Ipods everything you can think of in the age of lithium batteries, the 21st century. The heck with copper mines pipelines and oil and gas this could force the Taliban into being the China of Afghanistan allowing Capitalism to facilitate their preferred lifestyle of tribalism as the Chinese have used it to further communism. It is up to them it is up to Afghanistan because history has taught us progress will not be denied. You either use it to your advantage or be trampled. I hope Afghanistan chooses to use this opportunity to farther their preferred lifestyle instead of trying to fight it.

Shanghai group meets for expansion denying Ahmadinejad entry, emboldened he says Israel is doomed!



The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), where Russia and China call the shots, gathered Friday to consider changes to its membership guidelines which could lead to further expansion for the bloc.

At its annual gathering in the Uzbek capital Tashkent, leaders including Russia's Dmitry Medvedev and China's Hu Jintao were expected to adopt new guidelines seen as potentially opening the door to SCO observer nations India and Pakistan. Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan, Asif Ali Zardari of Pakistan and Turkmen leader Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov were also in attendance at the summit.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was expected to stay away from the summit after his country was slapped with fresh sanctions approved by the UN Security Council this week. In fact he was not even invited. Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the guidelines to be approved Friday would not allow countries under UN sanctions to obtain membership, a major blow to Iran who sorely needs international support. Son of a gun we do have unity! They invite Pakistan Afghanistan and India and are set to deny membership to Iran who is peeved! Shanghai group meets for expansion without Ahmadinejad

The new U.N. sanctions prevent Russia from delivering S—300 air—defense missiles to Iran, a Kremlin official said on Friday, in a reversal of the position announced by Russia’s Foreign Ministry the day before. The Kremlin statement was sure to please Israel and the United States, which have long urged Russia not to supply the powerful missile systems. Russia signed a deal to sell the missiles in 2007, but has delayed their delivery.

The U.N. Security Council resolution passed on Wednesday bans Iran from developing ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons, investing in nuclear—related activities and buying certain types of heavy weapons. The Kremlin official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the S—300 falls under these sanctions. Russia in the past has sold other air—defense missiles, aircraft and weapons to Iran. Russia now says Iran sanctions ban S-300 missiles

In closing the SCO on Friday snubbed Iran's membership bid, as Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the group's new guidelines did not allow countries under UN sanctions to join, leaving Tehran increasingly isolated over its refusal to renounce uranium enrichment. Of course Ahmadinejad said on Friday Israel was "doomed" and singled out Obama for scorn blaming Washington for orchestrating new nuclear sanctions against Tehran. He is right but I am glad we are standing together though nothing will dissuade Iran from trying to achieve nuclear weapons as she is reportedly close do doing. Iran's Ahmadinejad says Israel is 'doomed'

I have tried to give Iran the benefit of the doubt when they say their nuclear desires are peaceful knowing they could use nuclear power as an energy source for their growing population. I have always asserted that perceived need could be cover for the real goal of developing a nuclear weapon. They will not relent period. They must be pretty close and able to finish on their own if they now have China and Russia against them and are able to threaten Israel and still move forward. What is next in the saga?

Fill her up with gulf spill oil?



Chemical dispersant used in the gulf are deadly, do we want to eat and breath it?

substances that bioconcentrate tend to move from water into fish, where they can do damage to the fish itself, as well as be passed on to predator fish - and on up the food chain, to human eaters


Fill her up with spill oil? When British Petroleum sells the crude from the leaking well in the Gulf of Mexico, the oil could end up at gas stations.

Since the collected oil contains a high concentration of methanol, BP expects that each barrel will sell at a lower price than regular crude. Supposedly Oil taken from the well will be indistinguishable from other oil on the market, Louisiana State University professor Julius Langlinais told the AP. They don't say that is until you analyze it and find out breathing the fumes will kill you!

I understand people who are working on the clean up or still hitting the beach are burning their feet on this oil because of the poisonous caustic tarry goo created by mixing the the deadly dispersant with the oil. We know we are killing coral and all sea life not to speak of plankton the very basic building block all sea life then sea birds then human life depends on.

Do you think it wise to put this caustic mess in our gas tanks? You can not convince me it would be the same as regular gas even if they said they tested it. Think what we'd be breathing and adding to the air.

I understand BP will be setting some aside to help with the environment recovery but the hell with that. If we are forced to breath that, 100% of the tainted profits should go to environmental causes to minimize the growing ecological disaster and the profits should go through the Government not BP.

Hillarious spoof: the BP coffee spill,With the Gulf oil disaster in mind Tell me why sung by Declan Galbreath & Severn Suzuki's 1992 Speech at the Earth Summit / Amazing



She is 30 now, Severn Cullis-Suzuki is one of the world's most remarkable youth activists. Born and raised in Vancouver, Severn has been working on in environmental and social justice issues since kindergarten. At age 9, she and some friends started the Environmental Children's Organization (ECO), a small group of children committed to learning and teaching other kids about environmental issues. They traveled to 1992's Rio Earth Summit, where 12 year-old Severn gave a powerful speech that deeply affected the leaders who heard it. Watch the video. she was mesmerizing and 18 years later look where we are, look what we have done!


Severn Suzuki's 1992 Speech at the Earth Summit / Amazing



Hillarious spoof: BP coffee spill

We have learned nothing and we are in serious danger because we have put the corporations in control of our Government and our environment. I am afraid it is too late as we have let BP destroy the Gulf and their oil disaster will affect the entire world. If we have not already screwed ourselves we better replace this corporatocracy with Democracy! We are screwed primarily because of Bush and Cheney's deregulation. The entire world should be concerned about this because it is going to screw the world. Frigging American corporatocracy! Capitalism run amok!

Would a Democracy allow their fellow citizens to go without the basic needs of any human being let alone right here in the USA, Food Shelter and clothing? Homes are still being foreclosed at a rate of 1 every 7.5 seconds. This is a Democracy in action? Is the health insurance Industry spending 1.5 million dollars a day to control Congress and kill health care reform so they can keep control over you Democracy in action? Would a democracy destroy the environment, the very world we need for survival?

No! It is capitalism run amok, Capitalism is controlling our Democracy, controlling our destiny. This is not a Democracy. Democracy is a system of government in which either the actual governing is carried out by the people governed or the power to do so is granted by them. There are two principles that any definition of democracy includes, equality and freedom. Would not equality dictate that the top 1% take care of those who are in trouble? Or is it because Capitalism rules Democracy that they have the "freedom" to ignore Equality and Democracy?

We are in serious trouble people and from what I can see it will only get worse. Scientist think they may have cracked the sea floor that is why this is getting worse and worse. We have got to get out there, we have got to be heard, we have got to make a difference.

Round four of sanctions on Iran to piss them off and make them more determined to get nukes as fast as possible!



Sanctions laughable - Iran won't drop nuclear plans'



I refuse to believe that after all these times all these threats by us we are stupid enough to really think we can get Iran to bend to our wishes. All these years all the insistence by Iran that they are going to continue with their nuclear ambitions and it is their God given right to have nuclear power period. We gave them the knowledge in the fifties and they have gone to far and are too close to stop now.

The council voted 12 to two, with one abstention, in favor of a fourth round of sanctions, the resolution was opposed by Turkey and Brazil who had earlier brokered a deal with Iran on uranium enrichment, Lebanon abstained and Ahmadinejad said the sanctions should be thrown in the dustbin like a "used handkerchief. They should have expected nothing less as this too will only stiffen resistance.
UN approves round 4 of futile sanctions against Iran

Sanctions 'not the last'

Supposedly any new sanctions will be targeting the Revolutionary Guard but any new sanctions will benefit Ahmadinejad and the current regime will make sure they are used in their favor! They are not going to loosen their grip, they are not going to stop anything. They have gone too far, the IRG has too much power, and they smell blood. They have been freed up from dealing with Iraq and are not going to stop ensuing their version of new Middle East order with the Shiite in the dominant role!
Ahmadinejad Will Gain From Sanctions, Iranian Official Says

On top of all the instigating Iran is doing in every instance I am very concerned with her desire for nuclear weapons, her willingness to use them, and the fact that we gave Iran her nuclear start in the 50s. The nuclear program of Iran was launched in the 1950s with the help of the United States as part of the Atoms for Peace program.[1] The support, encouragement and participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the Shah of Iran. We are so concerned about Pakistan and Iran today in regard to nuclear abilities and nuclear weapons and security. I was blown away to find out that we built the first nuclear Reactors in both Iran and Pakistan. Iran's nuclear program

A reminder: As you know, when asked by a journalist how he felt upon returning to Iran in 1979 after 15 years in exile. Khomeini’s curt, one-word reply was “nothing” Whoa! From day one of his return to Iran Khomeini expressed no love for Iran only a love of the atom bomb. The drive even then was to possess a nuclear weapon though that desire is still denied until Iran can get their hands on one.

I have tried to give Iran the benefit of the doubt when they say their nuclear desires are peaceful knowing they could use nuclear power as an energy source for their growing population. I have always asserted that perceived need could be cover for the real goal of developing a nuclear weapon.

The current regime in Iran continues to up the ante inside and outside of Iran with militarism and nuclear concerns. They are antagonizing Israel, the US, and others in their quest for war to unite their country! Iran is not going to settle for world peace but instead inside and out they will settle for nothing less than dominance and will destroy the world to get it!
