China's Poisoning of the world !

The International Herald Tribune
SHANGHAI: Chinese regulators are widening their investigation into contaminated food amid growing signs that the toxic industrial chemical melamine has leached into the nation's animal feed supplies, posing health risks to consumers.

The announcement came after food safety tests earlier this week found that eggs produced in three different provinces in China were contaminated with melamine, which is blamed for causing kidney stones and renal failure in infants. The tests have led to recalls of eggs and consumer warnings.

I don't even know where to begin , When will someone in the U.S government stand up for what is right and tell China to suck an egg?
It is difficult to understand why we are supposed to tolerate the ridiculous amount of Contaminated food ,and just plain shotty , inferior , pieces of shit that they call tool's And housewares!!
I as an American do not want to buy Chinese goods , and with there being almost all Chinese goods on the market , what the fuck are you supposed to do?
How many more animals have to die here ? how many kids will have to get sick? With it being Halloween , and all that candy , do you Know what country it came from? and why the hell do we allow Chinese candy here ? it does not taste the same .
How many more ripped up and broken fingers do I have to endure at work because it is almost Impossible to buy a good tool that does not break when you use it ?
In the United States, worried consumers frantically e-mailed one another on Thursday and Friday about the possibility of melamine-tainted Halloween treats following a spate of news reports that some candies and chocolates made in China or with ingredients sourced in China had tested positive for high levels of melamine or been destroyed in recent weeks as a cautionary measure.A spokeswoman for the Food and Drug Administration said the agency was adjusting a nationwide sampling of products for melamine "as necessary." The FDA, along with state and local authorities, have been sampling products in Asian markets since mid-September for traces of melamine.

I think my biggest problem with all of this , is that the people who test these things say that most everything is within the limits, "Within the limits?" why is it even in the food ? what is wrong here ? I do not want to eat melamine ! Yes ,I know they have said they have not found any contaminated food in the U.S , but we were also told that the pet food was o.k.! we will only find out after the fact ! NOT ACCEPTABLE !

"A year ago, everybody should have been in a complete panic about it, and done something then," said Marion Nestle, a professor of food studies and public health at New York University and the author of "Pet Food Politics" (University of California Press, 2008), which examines the pet food problem in detail. "Someone should have required that melamine not be in any food product."

The pet food case led to a vast recall in the United States and other parts of the world and also sparked a lengthy food safety crackdown in China, with regulators boasting that they had closed down thousands of illegal or substandard food factories and slaughterhouses.

Panicking ? no ! more like getting PISSED! the rest of the report goes on to say how China has fired a bunch of people , and how the FDA has largely been blind ( or paid off ? )( my feelings ) I say they are clueless and are only that way for the kickbacks!
I believe that some people in the FDA need to be fired for their sheer incompetence , why should they be there if they don't know whether to ban possibly Tainted ,imported food?

Syrian riot police form ring around US Embassy

Again I wonder why we are even there ? why do we bother trying to hold an embassy in a terrorist country ? It makes no sense at all when the people of syria believe we are the terrorists!

DAMASCUS, Syria: Hundreds of Syrian riot police ringed the closed U.S. Embassy here Thursday as tens of thousands of people gathered about a mile away for a government-orchestrated protest to denounce a deadly U.S. raid near the Iraqi border.

The troops, wearing helmets and armed with batons and shields, took up positions around the embassy and the adjacent U.S. residence building. The embassy was closed because of security concerns related to the protest, and the American school in Damascus was also shut for the day.

Good thing for them there wasn't a riot!

Thursday's protest came as Syria demanded a formal apology from the U.S. for Sunday's attack in the eastern border community of Abu Kamal that Damascus says killed eight civilians. It threatened to cut off cooperation on Iraqi border security if there are more American raids on Syria territory.

There has been no formal acknowledgment of the raid from Washington. But U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, have said the target of the raid was Badran Turki al-Mazidih, a top al-Qaida in Iraq figure who operated a network of smuggling fighters into the war-torn country. The Iraqi national also goes by the name Abu Ghadiyah.

Syria insists the dead were civilians and has challenged Americans to provide evidence to the contrary.
"This aggression did not succeed," said Information Minister Mohsen Bilal. "It was supposed to yield a catch so that they could show it to the world ... But the catch turned out to be an innocent family."

As the protesters filled the Youssef al-Azmi square and surrounding streets in the upscale al-Maliki neighborhood, some Syrians formed circles and danced traditional dances while women and students joined the peaceful crowds.
The protesters waved national flags, carried pictures of President Bashar Assad and held banners, one of which called America "the sponsor of destruction and wars."

Hussam Baayoun, a 20-year-old university student at the rally, said the U.S. raid was a "criminal act" and added: "We want the Americans to stop their acts of terrorism in Syria, in Iraq and the rest of the world."

In Washington, State Department deputy spokesman Robert Wood said Wednesday that Syria had formally notified the U.S. of the closure order for the cultural center, effective immediately, and the school by Nov. 6.

Wood said Washington was considering how to respond and that the U.S. expects the Syrian government to "provide adequate security for the buildings."

Though Syria has long been viewed by the U.S. as a destabilizing country in the Middle East, in recent months, Damascus has been trying to change its image and end years of global seclusion.

But American accusations that Syria wasn't doing enough to prevent foreign fighters from crossing its borders into Iraq remains a sore point in relations. Syria says it is doing all it can to safeguard its long, porous border.



Wow , what a show , Mudvayne can sure kick ass , But on a work night A real drain !
A real surprise was the opening band "Snot" man did those guys rip it up!

Another "Fuck China " Moment!

Southern China to shed millions of jobs as economic crisis bites

What a headline to read !
I hope China does lose 2.7 million jobs , soon!
The global recession will at least Knock the Chinese down a bit , that along with the Major milk scandal and other tainted foods ,and the ever growing list of recalled toys and cribs ! why the fuck does anyone still do business with them?
Boycott Chinese goods (We should call them notso goods )NOW ,help out the American Economy , The more they lose the more we gain !
see other post at Report on Arrakis

from china news At least 2.7 million factory workers in southern China could lose their jobs as the global economic crisis hits demand for electronics, toys and clothes, according to industry estimates.

The region has seen massive export-driven expansion in recent years by supplying the world with cheap consumer goods, but rising production costs and falling US and European demand have marked a swift end to the boom.

Now 9,000 of the 45,000 factories in the cities of Guangzhou, Dongguan, and Shenzhen are expected to close before the Chinese New Year in late January, the Dongguan City Association of Enterprises with Foreign Investment estimates.

By then, the association expects overseas demand for products from the three manufacturing hubs to have shrunk by 30 percent, as the knock-on effects of the US housing market collapse and credit crunch filter down to Chinese workers.

"I am afraid it is not going to look good on the Chinese government if the decline of the export-led industries and the unemployment problem continue to worsen," Eddie Leung, the association's president told AFP.

Leung, also a member of the Chinese Manufacturers' Association, said the estimate of 2.7 million job losses was conservative, given that many of the larger factories in Guangdong province employ thousands of workers.

One of them, Hong Kong-listed Smart Union, a major toy manufacturer in Dongguan supplying US giants Mattel and Disney, closed its doors last week, leaving 7,000 workers out of work and with several weeks of back pay owed.

Clement Chan, chairman of the Federation of Hong Kong Industries, said a quarter of the 70,000 Hong Kong-owned companies in southern China, 17,500 businesses, could go to the wall by the end of January.

Describing the likelihood as a "worst case scenario," he said Hong Kong firms in the region employed a total of 10 million workers, but did not want to speculate on the extent of possible job losses.

While small and medium-sized factories are especially prone, the threat of lay offs looms just as large over the region's manufacturing giants, further squeezed by the appreciation of the yuan.

Harry To's Mansfield Manufacturing is a classic example of the spectacular growth in China's industrial heartland over the last three decades.

To started a metal business from a small room in Hong Kong in 1975. In 1991, he joined hundreds of other Hong Kong entrepreneurs moving their production across the border into China to take advantage of cheap labour and land.

He now employs 8,500 workers in 11 factories in China and Europe. His six factories in Dongguan cover 140,000 square meters (1.5 million square feet).

To's company, which is now a subsidiary of Singapore-listed InnoTek Ltd. supplies metal components for cars, plasma televisions, printers and other electrical appliances to Japanese brands including Canon, Toshiba, Epson, Minolta and Fuji-Xerox.

Business for the company, among the largest in its field in China, has grown by 40 percent annually in recent years, but with credit being harder to come by, no manufacturer is safe, he said.

"With banks being so tight on their lending policies now, bringing down a factory overnight has now become very easy."

All his expansion plans have had to be put on hold.

"Some of our long-time Japanese and European clients have asked us to stop producing for them in the next two to three weeks," he said.

"They said they did not want to have too much stock piled up in their warehouse as demand continues to dwindle."

To recently started building a new 70,000 square metre factory in Dongguan and was planning to hire 2,000 more workers later this year. But now, all work on the unfinished factory has stopped until more orders roll in.

"No one would expand their business when the prospects for the entire manufacturing industry look so grim," he said.

Instead of hiring more workers, To is looking at cutting 1,000 employees across his operations.

But far from being downhearted, he is shifting part of the company's export-led production to developing energy-saving electrical appliances for the domestic market, which he sees as weathering the current financial turmoil.

"In the long run, I am confident that mainland Chinese consumers' purchasing power will keep rising as their Western counterparts continue to lose out."

Oil powerhouse Venezuela struggles to keep lights on

I guess Hugo (the fat ass ,red shirt wearing ,commie dink ) Chavez ,can't keep up with his role as the supreme leader !
Communism does not work ! never has never will !
I think that the Democrats should pay close attention to their beloved Communist countries they hold in high praise, and see that the programs they support DON"T WORK!
As for Hugo I hope that he is on the receiving end of a civilian uprising and gets his fat ass spanked out of power !

SAN FELIX, Venezuela (Reuters) - Despite having some of the world's largest energy reserves, Venezuela is increasingly struggling to maintain basic electrical service, a growing challenge for leftist President Hugo Chavez.

The OPEC nation has suffered three nationwide blackouts this year, and chronic power shortages have sparked protests from the western Andean highlands to San Felix, a city of mostly poor industrial workers in the sweltering south.

Shoddy electrical service is now one of Venezuelans' top concerns, according to a recent poll, and may be a factor in elections next month for governors and mayors in which Chavez allies are expected to lose key posts, in part on complaints of poor services.

The problem suggests that Chavez, with his ambitious international alliances and promises to end capitalism, risks alienating supporters by failing to focus on basic issues like electricity, trash collection and law enforcement.

"With so much energy in Venezuela, how can we be without power?" asked Fernando Aponte, 49, whose slum neighborhood of Las Delicias in San Felix spent 15 days without electricity -- leading him to block a nearby avenue with burning tires in protest.

Just next door, Carmen Fernandez, 82, who is blind and has a pacemaker, says she has trouble sleeping through sultry nights without even a fan to cool her.

Experts say Venezuela for years has skimped billions of dollars in electrical investments, leaving generation 20 percent below the level necessary for a stable power grid and increasing the risk of national outages. Officially Venezuela has a capacity of 22,500 megawatts for a population of 28 million people, but a sizeable proportion is not working, analysts say.

And while Chavez has won praise for investing in health and education, his government has done little to repair local distribution systems that deliver electricity to end users, from barrio residents to business and industries.

Pastora Medina, a legislator representing San Felix and nearby cities suffering chronic power problems, this month tried to bring the issue up in the national Congress in Caracas, but the legislature's leadership refused to let her speak.

Several hours later, as the legislature discussed a South American integration plan created by Chavez, Congress itself lost power for around 10 minutes.

Fuck China once Again !

I like the saying "Fuck china" so much I have decided to make it a Category !
Anyway, China once Again is Asserting it's dominance over it's people !
I don't know about all of you who read this but I DO NOT LIKE being told what or what not to read , who I can talk to , and where I can go ,By ANYBODY!!!
That is why I am proud to be American I can do this without intervention by ANYONE!!!
Unlike China ,The People of China and their freedoms are severely hindered , and Hampered by the Communist Watchdog's ,step into an internet Cafe and now you must have your picture taken ! Why? probably to help Identify you when you try to log in to a website they do not think you Should , or when you use the wrong words And say something they do not like ! when they deem your actions as those of a dissident !!!
All to help Identify YOU!!! Good luck People of CHINA!

Technology times online

All visitors to internet cafés in Beijing are to be required to have their photographs taken in a stringent new control on the public use of cyberspace.

Hopes that the Olympic Games would usher in a relaxed approach to the internet had already been hit hard when the “Great Firewall of China” — the blocking of websites deemed subversive — was reimposed not long after foreign reporters left the country.

The temporary lifting of the firewall applied to only a few sites and Chinese citizens experienced few changes.

According to the latest rules, by mid-December all internet cafés in the main 14 city districts must install cameras to record the identities of their web surfers, who must by law be 18 or over. There are more than 250 million internet users in China, approximately ten times more than there were in 2000.
It has been several years since internet cafés were required to register users to ensure that customers were not under-age.

All photographs and scanned identity cards will be entered into a city-wide database run by the Cultural Law Enforcement Taskforce. The details will be available in any internet café.
At the Mingluo internet café in the Dongcheng district about 60 people were ensconced in front of terminals. Most were chatting online or watching films. The manager affected a lack of concern about the regulation, saying that he had introduced the policy a month ago. “I think most people don't mind. We explain to them that this will not have any impact on them,” he said.

The Times searched for online comments on the rules but was unable to find any — often a sign that most commentary has been critical and has therefore been erased. However, a survey by the internet version of the People's Daily showed that 72 per cent of respondents were opposed to the measure, calling it an infringement of their rights. Just over 26 per cent supported the photographing because it would benefit children.

Today is the expiry date on one of the concessions to the greater freedom that came with the Olympics: permission for foreign reporters to travel the country unhindered. China had promised complete media freedom when it applied to host the Games.

While its propaganda mandarins issued a 21-point directive limiting the domestic media, officials lifted restrictions on travelling and reporting by foreign journalists.

The authorities indicated that some freedoms could be maintained. Qin Gang, spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, said: “The Chinese Government will continue to follow the opening-up policy and to facilitate the work of foreign media and journalists in China.”

Sophie Richardson, of Human Rights Watch Asia, said that keeping the regulations and extending them to Chinese journalists “would be one of the most important legacies of the Games”.

Watching the media

— The Foreign Correspondents' Club says authorities interfered with reporters more than 335 times since January 1 last year

— Police beat the ITN reporter John Ray at a Tibet protest near Beijing's main Olympic zone this August

— Zhang Jianhong, former editor-in-chief of the banned literary website Aegean Sea, was jailed for six years in March 2007 for “inciting subversion”

— Police arrested the web dissident Du Daobin in July for violating probation, after his 2004 jailing

— More than 18,000 blogs and websites were shut from April to September 2007

— In late May 2008 media ordered to reduce coverage of collapsed schools in the earthquake zone that killed thousands of pupils

So Fucking Glad to Be An American!!!

Pakistan Taleban 'want to talk'

What a joke this is "we want to talk unconditionally with the government " In other words give us what we want and we will settle down (for now )
I have heard that the Taliban is getting tired of Al Qaeda , and the pressure that they are constantly under, Well I say good ! we should keep up with the pressure of Predator Missile strikes regardless of what the Taliban want to do.
An Ass beating does no good unless it's a good one and you learn your lesson ,I don't feel that these little bitch's have learned their lesson !

see my other post at Report on Arrakis

BBC Taleban militants fighting the Pakistan army in the country's tribal areas say they are willing to hold unconditional talks with the government.

Maulvi Omar, a spokesman for the militants, said they were also willing to lay down their arms if the military ceased operations against them.

The army is conducting operations against militants in the tribal region of Bajaur and the Swat valley.

The operations are said to be a serious effort to eradicate the Taleban.

The army wants them and al-Qaeda to be removed from Pakistan's tribal regions next to the Afghan border.

'No foreigners'

"We are willing to negotiate with the government without any conditions," Maulvi Omar told the BBC Urdu service on Wednesday.
"We are also willing to lay down our arms, once the military ceases operations against us."

Pakistan's government has said that it is willing to talk to the militants once they lay down their arms.

But it has also said it will not tolerate the presence of any foreigners in the region.

Maulvi Omar said that the local Taleban did not want foreign militants in the region and would help the government to remove them.

"We can set up a shura [elders] committee to liaise with the authorities in removing such people," he said.

Maulvi Omar said it was useless to debate the security situation in parliament without taking the Taleban into confidence.

"What is the use of discussing the situation without talking to us?" he asked.

Pakistan's military says it has killed and captured hundreds of militants in recent fighting in Bajaur and Swat.

The military also says that it has destroyed fortified encampments and training facilities of the militants in Bajaur.

But locals point out that this is mainly a series of exaggerated claims made by the military.

They say the militants never fight in regular positions, or behind fortifications, in Pakistan or Afghanistan.

The tribesmen also say that claims that dozens of militants have recently been killed are also exaggerated.

Local journalists say that many of the places where the military claimed to have killed the insurgents were abandoned weeks before any attack.

They also say that there is a big discrepancy between the number of bodies recovered and buried and the numbers of militants the military claim to have killed.

The North Korean mystery?

Well, has North Korea changed their minds ? I doubt it , but swimming in the cesspool of world politics is no fun and you never know what you are going to get!
Total cooperation today could be a nuclear strike away from WW3.
So we will wait and see what happens here maybe this time it is for real ?

VIENNA (Reuters) - Monitors re-sealed equipment and reactivated cameras at North Korea's nuclear complex on Tuesday, diplomats close to the U.N. atomic watchdog said, after a deal to re-launch a faltering disarmament process.

North Korea readmitted IAEA monitors to its Yongbyon nuclear complex on Monday and pledged to restart measures to eliminate its atom bomb program, after it struck a deal with the United States that defused rows over how to verify denuclearization.

A diplomat familiar with International Atomic Energy Agency operations said IAEA monitors were putting seals back on equipment at Yongbyon's shutdown plutonium-producing plant and switching agency surveillance cameras back on.

The monitors regained access to the reprocessing plant, the kernel of its atomic bomb program, as well as a nuclear fuel-fabrication facility and 5 megawatt reactor.

Pyongyang halted dismantlement a few weeks ago in the escalating dispute with Washington but by then the facilities had been largely taken apart, to the point where it would take about a year to reverse the process.

In Washington, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said North Korea had started reversing its steps to restart Yongbyon.

"I understand that the IAEA has resumed its work. It has started to reapply seals," he told reporters.

"I think, as simply put, the North Koreans have started the reversal of their reversal, so they're getting back to that baseline where they were very close to meeting their obligations under the second phase that we're in, in terms of disablement" of North Korea's nuclear complex, he said.

North Korea had barred IAEA inspectors from Yongbyon last Thursday in anger over Washington's refusal to remove it from a sponsors-of-terrorism blacklist in a dispute over the extent of verification measures required for denuclearization.
Two days later, the U.S. State Department announced that it had delisted the reclusive Stalinist state after Pyongyang agreed to a series of verification steps.

McCormack said senior officials from North Korea and the other five countries assisting Pyongyang's disarmament process hoped to meet soon to formalize the set of verification steps, but he said there was no date set yet. The other five countries are the United States, South Korea, Japan, China, and Russia.

North Korea, which shut down the Yongbyon complex almost a year ago and began dismantling it, agreed to access for experts to all declared nuclear facilities and, based on "mutual consent," undeclared sites.

The isolated, impoverished North was keen to get off the blacklist so it can draw on international financing for modernization and be freed from trade sanctions.

N.Korea ,winners?

I don't know what to think about this ? On one hand North Korea just got it's way ! on the other hand North Korea just is willing to cooperate ?
Naaaaahhhhhh, North Korea will still be A pain in the worlds ass!samething as Saddam did before both wars! NEVER TRUST THE COMMIES!

North Korea Wins Removal From U.S. Terror Blacklist ( bloomberg ) -- The U.S. removed North Korea from its list of state sponsors of terrorism, granting the communist state a long-sought prize in exchange for allowing wider scrutiny of its nuclear-weapons program.

North Korea agreed inspectors could examine facilities it has revealed as well as other locations suspected of being used for any part of its nuclear program. It also agreed to immediately resume disabling its Yongbyon reactor, a source of weapons-grade plutonium, U.S. envoy Sung Kim told reporters in Washington today.

The agreement breaks a two-month deadlock in six-nation talks aimed at ultimately ridding North Korea of atomic weapons and its ability to export nuclear technology. The U.S. had refused to remove North Korea from the list of state sponsors of terrorism until the government in Pyongyang agreed to a credible nuclear-inspection plan.

``Every element of verification that we sought is included in this package,'' said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack. ``Every single thing we sought going in is part of this package.''

The agreement resulted from a visit by U.S. negotiators to Pyongyang Oct. 1-3, officials said. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice signed a declaration this morning immediately taking North Korea off the terror list after President George W. Bush made the decision to proceed last night, McCormack said.

How do you like the global markets now?

So ,the global markets are tanking !,I hope something good comes of this ,fortunately for me I dumped my credit cards and other bills years ago ,A slimming down of bullshit I really don't need !

The big bailout will not help the little guy it will only help the big corporations and banks and we have already seen some abuse with the bailout plan ,AIG and their big party on the taxpayers dime is a perfect example of why a lot of people and corporations deserve the ass kicking they are taking in the market, I have never been to a posh resort ,even when I could afford it ( fucking Elitist's )
Always screw the little guy , the ones who actually put the economy on track ,that seems to be the motto of the Government! we do most of the work (hands on stuff ,the dirty stuff )we struggle along milling about our daily lives, we spend when we need to spend , and sometime s when we don't ! and now with our tax dollars we get to help the rich and the stupid , how about throwing us a fuckin bone ?
If the government really wants to help the economy they should have sided with common sense! settle the minds of the people who make this country work , not the retards who screwed it up !
bank bailout out ? O.K. how about dividing all the money spent on the banks between all the mortgage holders and reduce our mortgages by that amount ? that would have impressed me , but did they do anything like that?

Criminals in Juárez turn to bank heists

Things are really messed up in Mexico, Murders everyday by the drug Cartel's ,Kidnappings , and now Bank robberies!
If this crap starts spilling over into the U.S. I hope nobody takes it lightly ,these Assholes are as bad as they get , and need to be dealt with like they were the Taliban or Al Qaeda!
see my other post at report on Arrakis

The four bank robbers appeared to be not much older than 20. But they used handguns to threaten tellers and take cash and even cell phones in a display at Banco Azteca in east Juárez, police said.

The Banco Azteca robbery was one of four bank robberies last Wednesday in Juárez, which is already struggling with a staggering number of killings -- about 1,040 so far this year. There have been more than 70 bank robberies in the city.

"It's a phenomenon we are seeing in Juárez this year that goes hand-in-hand with the armed conflicts between organized criminal gangs," Guillermo Dowell, the Juárez version of a city manager, told reporters last week.

Juárez city officials and experts on Mexico have said that drug-trafficking gangs have turned to bank robberies, extortion, kidnappings and other crimes to raise money lost from drug smuggling disruptions as cartels fight for supremacy.

Unlike the United States where some bank robberies are often carried out with nothing more than a threatening note, bank robbers in Mexico are almost always armed. Shootouts with police have also occurred in the past.

City officials are urging banks to take preventive steps, including requiring customers to remove sunglasses, caps and hats before entering. Authorities have also launched a "public enemies" program were residents can dial 070 to make anonymous tips to identify photos of suspects in robberies and other crimes. But there have been a few successes, they say.

On Sept. 29, police
captured a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old woman as they drove away after robbing a bank.

Cynthia Mckinney= Dipshit of the year !

I really hate politics , the Lying , the deceiving , the flat out ridiculous way that politicians forget they work for us !( U.S. taxpayers )I would love to organize the largest march on Washington D.C. , get maybe two , three million maybe more , pissed off Taxpayers , To just walk right up on the house and the senate and haul these Idiot's out in the street !( pitch fork and torches optional!)
to tell them where they stand ! Underneath us ! I also propose firing the top ten idiots on the spot , and any of them thereafter that pipe up and say something stupid ! Which brings me to Cynthia ( I'M a BIG Dipshit ) McKinney , this nimrod wants to be President ? What the hell ! She is a bottom of the Barrel Politician who is wigged out ! she might be better suited for a straight jacket ! how someone can come up with this kinda shit is beyond me , this whole Katrina thing has been dragged under the bus long enough and dipshits like McKinney ,just do not get it ! ( career over ! ).

Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney, known for her provocative statements when she was a congresswoman from Georgia, accused the Department of Defense this week of using Hurricane Katrina to cover up the slaughter of 5,000 prisoners.

At a news conference in Oakland, Calif., on Sunday, McKinney claimed the Pentagon authorized the execution of the prisoners with one bullet to the head three years ago and then dumped their bodies in a Louisiana swamp.

McKinney said she heard the story from the mother of a National Guard soldier who said her son was assigned to help dispose of the bodies.

"And these were mostly males and her son was afraid to talk because he had signed a silence agreement," McKinney told the crowd. "So he only complained to his mother. But the data was entered into a Pentagon computer."

McKinney said she verified the story from "insiders" who wanted to remain anonymous.

"I suspect that these are prisoners. ... So this investigation of the whole prison industrial complex is extremely important and it should not end with just a question of the nature of prisons in our country," she said to a captivated audience. "These 5,000 souls also need some justice too."

A Defense Department spokesman dismissed McKinney's accusation.

"The claim is outrageous on the very face of it and doesn't merit any further consideration," said Lt. Col. Les' Melnyk. "It would be inconceivable that 5,000 people would go missing in America without anyone noticing it prior to this."

Psychologists and psychology professors contacted by wouldn't comment on McKinney's mental condition, but they expressed shock at her assertion.

"Wow! What a conspiracy theory," one professor exclaimed before declining comment and hanging up the phone.

Dr. Celia Ward, a clinical psychologist in Washington, D.C., said she wouldn't speculate on McKinney's state of mind because McKinney heard the story from someone else.

"This sounds like a game of telephone," Ward said, explaining how a rumor can change as it passes from one person to another. "But to take something that has so many questions attached to it and to treat a rumor as fact is the basis for mass distortion. It's really a good example of Swift-boating."

Ward said McKinney could have easily verified the story by checking prison records.

"This is the kind of rumor that warrants fact-checking," she said.

McKinney's presidential campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

A member of the House for 12 years until 2007, McKinney is no stranger to controversy. Shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, she suggested that President Bush knew about the plot in advance but failed to warn Americans because of his father's business interests. Some political analysts say that statement contributed to her defeat in 2002.

After McKinney was re-elected in 2004, she tried to impeach Bush, Vice President Cheney and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on charges that they lied and manipulated intelligence to justify the war in Iraq.

McKinney hit a career low point in 2006 when she was accused of striking a Capitol Police officer who grabbed her after she passed a security checkpoint without wearing a congressional lapel pin. She later apologized for the incident. She was defeated in a Democratic primary later that year and left the Democratic Party in 2007. She was nominated in July to run for president on the Green Party ticket. There are 245 other Green Party candidates running for office this fall.

China says its ok ,Eat Melamine!!

I have never understood how there can be an "Acceptable level " of foreign materials in your food ? My question to these idiots is why is melamine in the chocolate anyway?
you are not supposed to eat it , why is it there?
I suppose because there is an "Acceptable level " of radiation you can be exposed to, you should be o.k. with being exposed everyday ?
Oh sure you can eat dog crap also , but do you want to ?

HONG KONG - Hong Kong's food safety watchdog said that the level of melamine in Cadbury products was safe, after the British sweet maker recalled 11 of its China-made chocolates.

Cadbury recalled the product lines from Taiwan, Australia and Hong Kong after they found traces of the industrial chemical, which has led to more than 53,000 babies falling ill in China.

Hong Kong's Centre for Food Safety (CFS) said they had tested Cadbury products after the recall.

"Results available... showed that all the samples were satisfactory," the CFS said in a statement released late Tuesday.

The CFS said Cadbury Chocolate Eclairs had been found to contain a melamine level of 1.9 parts per million. The acceptable legal limit is 2.5 parts per million in Hong Kong.

The company said on Monday it had found traces of melamine and was withdrawing the products made at its Beijing plant as a precautionary measure after internal tests "cast doubt" on their safety.

An ever-expanding list of China-made foods and drinks have been removed from stores around the world since the scandal was first exposed several weeks ago.

Normally used in making plastics and fertiliser, melamine is believed to have been added to milk to give it the appearance of higher protein content.

Four Chinese children have died in the scandal.
