Avenged Sevenfold drummer dead

....BBC
James "The Rev" Sullivan, drummer for US heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold, has died aged 28.

Sullivan, who co-founded the band in 1999, apparently died of natural causes at his home in California on Monday.

A statement on the band's website said Sullivan was "one of the world's best drummers, but more importantly our best friend and brother".

Avenged Sevenfold played the Reading and Download festivals in the UK. Their last album charted in the US top five.

The band picked up a Kerrang! magazine album of the year award in 2008 for their self-titled LP, and were currently working on their fifth studio album.

The statement added: "Jimmy you are forever in our hearts. We love you."

....BBC
North Korean authorities have said they have arrested a US man who crossed into their territory.

The North's official KCNA news agency said the man had entered the country from China on 24 December. There is no official word on the man's identity.

However there have been reports that Robert Park, a US Christian activist, recently crossed into North Korea.

Colleagues say he wanted to highlight the country's human rights record and demand the release of prisoners.

"On December 24, a US citizen illegally entered the country across the North Korea-China border and has been detained. The person is currently undergoing questioning by a related agency," KCNA news agency said.

Associates of Mr Park reported that he had walked into North Korea from China across the frozen Tumen River.

They say he carried a letter urging the North's leader, Kim Jong-Il, to free political prisoners and improve human rights in the communist state, AFP news agency reports.

Earlier this year North Korea detained two US journalists on the border with China. They were released in August after four months in captivity.

Detroit Again !

Yeah Detroit Again ! If the FBI is not investigating everyone and everything Islamic related to Detroit then We have a Problem .

(It seems obvious why , But )
and now we have to go through even more screening at the Airports ( Good thing I drove home for Christmas ) .
I say profile ! Profile the hell out of Muslim passengers on planes ! Especially when they are coming into the States , it has not been Your average white American Bible thumping , redneck right wing , Gun toting Male , doing this shit all the time , every time it has been a Muslim ! (Or Radical Islamist If that makes you feel Better )
I don't know what else needs to Happen , for profiling to become the Best security screening measure implemented at all Airports !
....BBC
Police are conducting searches at a mansion block in London in connection with the inquiry into an attempted act of terrorism on a US passenger plane.

Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, a Nigerian being held after the flight to Detroit, is thought to have been a student at University College London.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown said the UK would take "whatever action was necessary" to protect passengers.

UK airport operator BAA said searches on flights to the US would increase.

Meanwhile, a statement on British Airway's website said Washington has revised its security arrangements for all travellers to the US and they would only be allowed one piece of hand luggage.

A BA spokesman said the directive meant US-bound passengers on all airlines would be subjected to additional screening.

"We apologise to passengers for any delays to their journeys. Safety and security are our top priorities and will not be compromised."

Mexico arrests four over drug gang revenge killings

Mexico's National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) has urged better privacy regarding the identity of those who die fighting the drug cartels, as a means of avoiding reprisal attacks.


It Doesn't sound like they are doing a real good job of hiding anything in Mexico ,whith the cartels having everyone paid off from local government and Law enforcment to Mexicos Military and State politicians , how are you supposed to conceal someones Identity ?
....
Mexican police have arrested four people over the revenge killing of the family of a marine who died in a high-profile drugs raid last week.

The four are accused of helping the hitmen who killed the mother, siblings and aunt of marine Melquisedet Angulo within hours of his funeral on Tuesday.

He was hailed as a hero after he died during the raid that led to the killing of one of Mexico's top drug lords.

Authorities said the search for his family's killers was continuing.

The murder of Melquisedet Angulo Cordova's relatives in the state of Tabasco provoked widespread outrage in Mexico, with Mexican President Felipe Calderon saying the attack was "a cowardly and contemptible act of violence".

The family members were shot dead in their house just hours after they had attended his funeral.

Tabasco Attorney General Rafael Gonzalez said the four people in custody, three men and a woman, had acted as lookouts during the attack and had transported money to pay the gunmen.

He also said some police officers may have allowed or helped the attackers to escape.
"We attribute this bloody crime to the Zetas group," Mr Gonzalez said, a reference to former elite soldiers turned hitmen.

The Zetas work with the Gulf cartel that controls much of the illegal drugs trade along Mexico's Gulf coast, but they are also aligned with the Beltran Leyva cartel that is based on the Pacific coast.

What a shock !

Cambodia to deport Uighurs despite persecution fears

As much as everyone does not like it , China has it's laws and rules .
you take your chance when you decide to break them !
....
PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - Cambodia plans to deport at least 20 Muslim Uighurs who fled China after deadly ethnic violence this year, a government official said on Saturday, despite concerns they will face persecution by Beijing.

The Uighurs, a Turkic Muslim ethnic group involved in rioting in western China that killed nearly 200 people in July, were smuggled into Cambodia in recent weeks and applied for asylum at the United Nations refugee agency office in Phnom Penh.

"The Cambodian government is implementing its immigration law. They came to Cambodia illegally without any passports or visas, so we consider them illegal immigrants," said Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry had no immediate comment in response to the announcement, an official in Beijing said.

Human rights groups say they fear for the lives of the Uighurs if they are deported to China.

"Cambodia will be sending these Uighurs to a terrible fate,

possible execution and likely torture," said Amy Reger, a researcher at the Washington-based Uighur American Association.

She cited the case of Shaheer Ali, a Uighur political activist who fled to Nepal in 2000 and was granted refugee status by the United Nations. He was forcibly returned to China from Nepal in 2002 and executed a year later according to state media.

5 young men slain on patio of home

Jaurez is an absolute mess ! " More than 40 People killed in the last week and Over 2500 for the year so far .
....El Paso Times
Five men were shot and killed Tuesday afternoon on the back patio of a house in west Juárez, said Chihuahua state police.

The men were slain by gunmen who fired 29 rounds at the home in the 2500 block of Galapagos in colonia 16 de Septiembre, police said. The men had not been identified but appeared to be in their 20s.

More than 40 people, including a 2-year-old girl, have been killed since Friday in Juárez. The girl, Melissa Vela Arellano, died Sunday at a hospital.

She apparently had injuries to her abdomen, but an autopsy will be performed to determine how she died, authorities said.

At least five women are among the recent victims. No arrests have been made. More than 2,500 people have been murdered this year in Juárez.

Mexico drug killers dump 6 severed heads by church

The United States, which worries about the growing power of the cartels, says the rising death toll is a sign the drug gangs are weakening under the military crackdown.

HuH? the rising death toll is a sign the drug gangs are weakening ?
I Guess you could look at it that way , But I see it as well as , Many of you Do , that it is a Sign of the drug cartels Being able to get away with whatever they want...Murder , terror , Murder , Drug running , and some murdering !

And notice how Beheading And chopping off of limbs is Becoming the Favorite murdering technique of the Cartels ! Much like the Taliban , Al Shabaab and Al Qaida

....
DURANGO, Mexico (Reuters) - Suspected drug gangs dumped the severed heads of five police officers and a prosecutor outside a church in northern Mexico on Wednesday as killings from the latest cartel violence rose to more than 60 in the past three days.

The heads were left in plastic bags near the church in Durango state before dawn. They were discovered by trash collectors as blood ran out of them onto the street, the state attorney general's office said.

"These six were kidnapped on Monday night and then beheaded," said a spokeswoman for the attorney general's office.

The beheadings appeared to be a revenge attack by the powerful Gulf cartel and its Zeta hitmen for the killing of 10 gang members in Durango by the army last week, police said.

The battle between rival cartels over smuggling routes into the United States has killed more than 60 people across Mexico this week in the latest sign President Felipe Calderon's army-backed crackdown is only provoking more violence.

Drug gang members in Tijuana, across from San Diego, killed more than 20 people in the past 24 hours, chopping up and beheading victims, while drug murders have escalated in Ciudad Juarez on the Texas border. The city has become one of the world's murder capitals this year.

Drug gangs are becoming increasingly brazen despite a 49,000-strong troop presence across Mexico. In Calderon's home state of Michoacan in central Mexico, suspected drug gangs threw grenades near the state government palace on Tuesday, seriously injuring a pregnant woman and a young girl.

"The government has weakened and fragmented some of the major cartels, but in the progress has upset the balance of cartel power," said U.S. security consultancy Stratfor in a report on Wednesday. "The result has been an increase in violence as formerly allied cartels have been pitted against each other in battles of attrition," it added.

More than 16,000 people have been killed in drug violence in Mexico since Calderon launched his drug war in late 2006.

The United States, which worries about the growing power of the cartels, says the rising death toll is a sign the drug gangs are weakening under the military crackdown.

But Mexicans are angry at the army's inability to stop the violence and have called for a withdrawal in some cities.

Yemen rebels say air raid kills 120

Accusing the U.S. Of helping out with an Airstrike ? If the U.S. was involved a High Value Target was killed , That would be the only reason we would do this !
Seeing as how a High value target was not mentioned , it is probably unlikely !
But to the Douchbags of Somalia---->( The Cesspool of the World )
"Paybacks are a Bitch !"
....
SANAA (Reuters) - Yemeni Shi'ite rebels accused the U.S. air force on Tuesday of joining attacks against them, and killing at least 120 people in a raid in the north of the poor Arab state.

"The savage crime committed by the U.S. air force shows the real face of the United States," said the northern rebels, who often report attacks by the Yemeni and Saudi fighter planes, on their website. There was no immediate report of U.S. comment on the alleged incident.

The rebels, who are fighting the Yemeni army and forces of neighboring Saudi Arabia, posted videos on the Internet that appeared to show people trying to clear rubble covering human bodies.

On Sunday, the rebels said at least 70 people had been killed in a Saudi air raid on a market in the northern town of Razeh. The reports could not be verified as aid workers and media have limited access to the conflict zones.

U.S.-allied Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter, fears the growing instability in neighboring Yemen could turn into a major security threat for the kingdom by allowing al Qaeda to gain a stronger foothold there.

Costa Rica latest stop for Mexican drug gangs

Again the U.S. fault , one day these Douchbags will realize it is their people that are doing the Smuggling and that it would be more their problem to "Fix" than ours !
....Reuters
Costa Rican police have seized close to 93 tonnes of cocaine between 2006 and 2009, nearly twice the amount the Central American country captured in the previous decade, according to Interior Ministry data.

"We are punished by our geography," Arias said, citing the growing trafficking activity as a major public security issue.

"I believe the United States has to make a much bigger effort to spend more in cutting down on (cocaine) consumption," he told a news conference.


Maybe so , But should the U.S. Always take the blame for what the Derelicts do in poor , underdeveloped , third world countries ?
Maybe they should "Make a much Bigger Effort " Combating the rejects who are smuggling the drugs !




Costa Rica sits halfway between the cocaine-producing Andes and Mexico, whose powerful cartels earn some $40 billion a year smuggling the drug to the United States and other developed countries.

Traffickers traditionally moved cocaine through Central America by plane or boat. They now are well implanted in Guatemala and also are using storage bases in Costa Rica, a nation long known as a haven of stability in a region blighted by street gangs and poverty.

"They're storing it here," said Public Security Minister Janina del Vecchio. "Now, they don't even have intermediaries but instead have Colombians here who leave the drug and the Mexican (cartels) pick it up."

Indiana School Removes 'Allah' From Holiday Show After Protests

The biggest problem here , they are involving Kids !
....foxnews
An elementary school in Indiana reportedly removed a mention of Allah in its holiday show after protests from a national conservative Christian group.

Lantern Road Elementary Principal Danielle Thompson told IndyStar.com that school officials in Fishers, Ind., attempted to teach inclusiveness through the second-grade program that included portions on Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Las Posadas and Kwanzaa.

"It went off last night without a hitch," Thompson told the Web site. "Several families thought it was a nice program."

Thompson said officials removed the phrase "Allah is God," however, after the American Family Association complained about the program on its electronic newsletter. The alteration was made because no other deities were named in the program.

Shariq Siddiqui, executive director of the Muslim Alliance of Indiana, told the Web site that the decision to remove the word Allah was most certainly not inclusive.

"It's unfortunate if that was removed from the program just because of Islamophobic feelings," Siddiqui told the Web site. "Schools are a place where we should learn more about each other rather than exclude each other based on stereotypes and misconceptions."



Sorry Siddicqui , Schools are for learning important things like reading , Writing , Math , Science , And basic "Human Being" Skills , Not a place to learn about religion ! you have your Church or Mosque for that !




Siddiqui said "Allah" is the Arabic word for God and is used by Jews, Christians and others in Arabic-speaking nations.


what Arabic-speaking Nation Are you talking About that lets Jews And Christians live in it ?

Secret Document Exposes Iran's Nuclear Trigger

I wonder how Iran will spin this one ? It will be pretty hard to explain how a Neutron Initiator will be used for peaceful purposes !
Unless it is for those kind of peaceful purposes you get when you can incinerate your enemy !
....Foxnews
Confidential intelligence documents obtained by The Times of London show that Iran is working on testing a key final component of a nuclear bomb.

The notes, from Iran’s most sensitive military nuclear project, describe a four-year plan to test a neutron initiator, the component of a nuclear bomb that triggers an explosion. Foreign intelligence agencies date them to early 2007, four years after Iran was thought to have suspended its weapons program.

An Asian intelligence source last week confirmed to The Times that his country also believed that weapons work was being carried out as recently as 2007 — specifically, work on a neutron initiator.

The technical document describes the use of a neutron source, uranium deuteride, which independent experts confirm has no possible civilian or military use other than in a nuclear weapon. Uranium deuteride is the material used in Pakistan’s bomb, from where Iran obtained its blueprint.

"Although Iran might claim that this work is for civil purposes, there is no civil application," said David Albright, a physicist and president of the Institute for Science and International Security in Washington, which has analysed hundreds of pages of documents related to the Iranian programme. "This is a very strong indicator of weapons work."

Pakistan PM backtracks on Waziristan remarks

P.M Gilani had to Backtrack on this one , you can't talk tough and say in the headlines that this is going to be a "Big Battle" and then whimper out like this !
Doing so would show the world that he is weak/or maybe a little sympathetic with the Taliban ! I Personally think he sides with the Taliban A little , That's why these Offensives are AntiClimatic !
....Reuters
In televised comments from the eastern city of Lahore, Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani told reporters the military operation in South Waziristan had concluded and that the army may now shift focus to the Orakzai tribal region where militants are believed to have fled.

But Gilani later said though the army had captured Taliban strongholds in South Waziristan, the offensive had not yet ended.

"I may have said it in a different context," he told reporters in the city of Karachi in comments broadcast live by state-run television.

"Our army operation in South Waziristan is going on quite successfully ... and I can't tell any timeline (for its conclusion)."

Anti-militant offensives are handled by Pakistan's powerful army which has been reluctant to set any timeframe for such campaigns. The operation in South Waziristan, which borders Afghanistan, was the army's biggest in years involving 30,000 troops.

Pakistan's military says 589 militants and 79 soldiers have been killed in the South Waziristan campaign since it was launched in mid-October. Militants have hit back with bombings that have killed hundreds of people.

Security officials say many of the militants are believed to have fled South Wazirstan to Orakzai, North Waziristan and the Kurram tribal areas.

Cartels seek toehold in border community politics

Nice , Imagine what it would be like if the Cartels did this in every Community !
Maybe this is the reason for "Certain" Local And Government Politicians whose districts Run alongside the Border with Mexico , Defend Illegal Immigration so heatedly ?
Just sayin , but it always appears to be someone of Hispanic decent who calls everyone Who is Against illegal Immigration a Racist , these same "Politicians" also fight to have A "No I.D." voting system in Place , Basically giving Mexico's Citizens a voice in U.S. Elections !

I have always wondered why Hispanic Politicians Act the way they do when it comes to Immigration And other issues Concerning Mexico , Now maybe we have some insight as to why ?
....Las Cruces Sun News
EL PASO - Mexican drug cartels are helping elect and influence politicians in U.S. communities to advance their criminal activities, an expert on international gangs alleged.

Richard Valdemar, a retired California law enforcement officer, said authorities in California gathered intelligence showing the cartels are corrupting American politicians to gain a foothold in the Southwestern United States.

Previous investigations showed the Carrillo Fuentes, Arellano Felix and Sinaloan drug cartels targeted Southern California communities that included South Gate, Hawaiian Gardens and Bell Gardens.

"Their efforts to influence and control these communities began in the 1980s, but investigators did not detect the trend until the 1990s," said Valdemar, who retired from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department after 33 years in 2004. He also served on a multi-agency investigative task force for 12 years.

"Some of the communities got cleaned up and some didn't," said Valdemar, who appears regularly on TV specials about gangs and other organized criminals.

The influence of gangs on politics is not suspected in El Paso, but gang experts said it could easily happen here.

Valdemar, a veteran investigator said that in California, the Mexican drug organizations employed a method they had used in Mexico with success.

Cartels send representatives to U.S. communities to buy legitimate businesses, such as strip malls, restaurants, auto dealerships and used tire shops. Then, they invite

local politicians and police to receive free meals and discounts, until they can develop relationships with influential people.

"They could give an entire city council a million dollars, and fire police chiefs, city managers, city attorneys, and anyone else who opposes them," Valdemar said. "They got local laws changed so they could run nightclubs, liquor stores and other businesses without interference. They went after cities' towing contracts and other types of contracts."

Although the true source of the money is hidden, he said the cartels contribute cash to the election campaigns of politicians, and finance negative campaigns against their rivals.

They wait until a majority of elected offices are up for election in city councils, county commissions and water districts, and run a lot of candidates so they can seize a majority voting bloc.

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado made similar allegations in his 2006 book "In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security."

Pakistan may face new jihad, this time on Internet

Cost-free indoctrination by the Taliban and al Qaeda is readily available on sites such as You Tube, which one official said was used by the five Americans to try and contact militants.

You Tube ? Yes that is right , these little wannabes watched You tube Videos to get all " Gay for Jihad , With all the thousands of videos taken down by "You tube Smackdown " there are still plenty of recruiting style videos on You Tube to see !
The internet is not a new frontier for Terrorists , But it is a growing front line , One that will only get worse , If not kept in check .
(You Tube Smackdown , is currently on strike)


....Dawn.com
ISLAMABAD: The detention in Pakistan of Americans seeking to contact militants and join holy war through the Internet suggests the country may need more than security crackdowns to contain threats from an insurgency.

The five men, students in their 20s from northern Virginia, were detained this week in the city of Sargodha in Punjab province, 190 km (120 miles) southeast of Islamabad, security officials said.

The suspects were being investigated for possible links to a Pakistan-based group suspected of carrying out high-profile attacks and with links to the Taliban and al Qaeda. Laptops, cellphones and maps of Pakistani cities were seized from them.

'It's a very difficult job to dismantle such networks which operate through the Internet. Their mode of communication was the Internet and email. All five and their contacts were using the same password and just putting their messages in draft and weren't sending them,' said a Pakistani security official.

'It's very difficult to detect them. If the FBI could not detect these types of messages, how can we? It's not an easy job.'

The possibility of having to track down militant networks on the Internet could not have come at a worse time for Pakistan. It is already struggling against militants who seem to carry out bombings at will, killing hundreds since October and raising questions over the stability of the nuclear-armed country.

Islamabad also faces mounting pressure from Washington to root out militants that cross the border to attack US-led troops in Afghanistan.

Radicalisation starts thousands of miles away from the strategic region. Some security officials say the Americans had intended to go fight in Afghanistan.

Two were of Pakistani origin. Officials said one of the Americans was of Egyptian origin, one of Yemeni origin and another of Eritrean origin, illustrating how the Internet can spread militant networks across continents, undetected.

If young men are leaning towards leaving behind the West to seek jihad, the Internet offers a variety of videos, made by some of the world's deadliest militant groups, to help them decide.

Cost-free indoctrination by the Taliban and al Qaeda is readily available on sites such as You Tube, which one official said was used by the five Americans to try and contact militants.

Videos romanticise what could be a violent future.

High- Ranking Al Qaida leader Reportedly Killed

Absolutely Awesome ! I hope they keep expanding on the predator strikes , they seem the only thing that really gets the " Big Guys " .
Just a little curious about the newly revealed RQ-170 "The beast of Khandahar " Or the Sentinal ( Yes it is Official now ) , They say that the "R" designation stands for purely operational , Troop Support , That's great .

Obama Recently announced that the U.S. will increase the Predator drone Attacks throughout Pakistan And into Baluchistan Afghanistan ! also Extremely great .

So is the Beast of Khandahar purely for "Recon" Purposes to support this ? Probably , But from the Looks of this BadAss Drone , it could be Modified With Weapons
After all the predator was purely for Recon When it was first introduced !




Either way Dead Bad Guys !


....FoxNews
A high-ranking Al Qaeda figure reportedly was killed Thursday in a U.S. drone aircraft attack in north Pakistan.

The attack, first reported by NBC News, was officially denied by Pakistani officials, though sources told Fox News that neither Usama bin Laden or Ayman al-Zawahiri were among those killed.

Pakistani media report six militants were killed in the attack, including four foreign fighters, a classification in the tribal areas that typically refers to Al Qaeda.

The attack was part of the expanded use of Predator drones recently authorized by the White House, sources told Fox News, though the drone attacks, which began during the Bush Administration, never have been officially confirmed because of political sensitivity in Pakistan.

The Obama administration reportedly is talking with Pakistan about expanding the program from Waziristan to Baluchistan, a controversial move since it is outside the tribal areas near the Afghanistan border.

Baluchistan is where Afghan Taliban leaders are believed to be hiding.

The administration's decision corresponds with Obama's announcement last week to send 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, lawmakers lashed out at Pakistan last week as an unreliable ally in the Afghan war that could spare the U.S. its bruising fight with Al Qaeda if it wanted.

"They don't seem to want a strategic relationship," New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez said of the government in Islamabad. "They want the money. They want the equipment. But at the end of the day, they don't want a relationship that costs them too much."

A crucial ally in fighting the Al Qaeda terrorist network, Pakistan is also a major recipient of U.S. aid. President Obama and Congress recently approved a $7.5 billion aid package for economic and social programs in Pakistan in a bid to strengthen the civilian government there.

But many in Congress have grown skeptical that Islamabad is doing all it can to drive out Al Qaeda forces hiding along its mountainous Afghan border.

Ahmadinejad Reportedly Claims U.S. is Blocking Return of Mankind's Savior

“We have documented proof that they believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world,”

Spoooky !

So some Documented proof is in their Hands ? I sure would like to see this ! What is it about Doomsday Theories and whackos all around the World ?
Preaching like he is a Prophet of Doom , Ahmadinejad makes himself look like one Giant Asshole , How ANYONE could take this Major Asswipe seriously is Beyond comprehension !
....foxnews
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claims the United States is attempting to thwart the return of mankind's savior, according to reports from Al Arabiya, a television news station based in Dubai.

Ahmadinejad reportedly claims he has documented evidence that the U.S. is blocking the return of Mahdi, the Imam believed by Muslims to be the savior.

“We have documented proof that they believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world,” Ahmadinejad said during a speech on Monday, according to Al Arabiya.

"They have devised all these plans to prevent the coming of the Hidden Imam because they know that the Iranian nation is the one that will prepare the grounds for his coming and will be the supporters of his rule," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.

Ahmadinejad continued the rant by claiming there have been plots by both the West as well as countries in the East to wipe out his country, according to Iranian news Web site Tabak.

"They have planned to annihilate Iran. This is why all policymakers and analysts believe Iran is the true winner in the Middle East," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by the site. He also alleged that foreign nations seek to control Iran's oil and natural resources.

"In Afghanistan, they are caught like an animal in a quagmire. But instead of pulling their troops out to save themselves, they are deploying more soldiers. Even if they stay in Afghanistan for another 50 years they will be forced to leave with disgrace — because this is a historical experience," Ahmadinejad reportedly said.

"They know themselves that they need Iran in the Middle East, but because of their arrogance they do not want to accept this reality. They are nothing without the Iranian nation and all their rhetoric is because they don't want to appear weak."

Iran opposition clashes with police

Ah , A Muslim Country in turmoil ! So Nice to See .
I expect that Mousavi will be hunted down like a dog , and he probably will disappear , the Mullah Monkeys Are not going to put up with his Urging the people along in these protests !
But here you have the usual Iranian B.S , Shooting live rounds ( At least no reports of anyone killed this time ,So far )beating everyone and Arresting others !
What a nice place to live !
....
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian security forces fired warning shots in Tehran on Monday and beat opposition protesters among thousands seeking to renew their challenge to the government six months after a disputed election, witnesses said.

The security forces fired shots into the air as they clashed with supporters of opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi at a state rally marking the killing of three students under the former Shah, the reformist website Mowjcamp said.

"Security forces are beating demonstrators, men and women. Some of them are injured and bleeding," said one witness in Tehran's central Haft-e Tir square.

The June 12 presidential election, which secured President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election, sparked Iran's worst unrest since the Islamic revolution three decades ago and exposed deep divisions in the establishment. Authorities deny allegations of vote-rigging.

Journalists working for foreign media were told by officials not to leave their offices to cover stories from Monday until Wednesday, but witnesses told Reuters hundreds of riot police battled protesters in various Tehran squares to disperse them.

"Some people who took part in illegal gatherings on Monday have been arrested by police," said Tehran general prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi, the semi-official Fars new agency reported. "They are being interrogated."

He did not specify how many people had been arrested.

Witnesses said some of the Tehran protesters chanted "death to the dictator".

Swiss minaret ban reversal vote in pipeline

This gets Interesting now , A proposal is being drawn up to be brought to a vote , To overturn the 57% approval of a ban On Minarets .

MoMo Qadaffy , says Voting against Islam , Has done Al Qaida a great Favor , And is Playing into their Hands !

And the U.N Is Upset because this is a Human rights violation to no end , And the ban is Oppressive to Muslims everywhere !
....
ZURICH (Reuters) - Swiss liberals are considering a new referendum to overturn the ban on building new minarets in the country, Sunday papers reported, as Libya's Muamar Gaddafi warned the ban played into the hands of terrorists.

Club Helvetique, a group of over 20 Swiss intellectuals, will draw up an action plan to overturn the ban, which has drawn widespread criticism abroad and prompted hundreds of people to take to the streets this weekend in Zurich, Basel and Berne.

"A new initiative is the most democratic way of achieving this," constitutional lawyer Joerg Mueller told Sonntag.


But the ban Initiative was done in a Democratic way , no one was forced to vote on it !


Voters adopted the ban in a referendum a week ago, defying the government and parliament which had warned the right-wing initiative violated the Swiss constitution, freedom of religion and a cherished tradition of tolerance.


In a Democratic society , The Will of the people is supposed to rule , even with the Opposition to the Movement by the Government !
( If not you Have , Iran Not Switzerland )
In overturning this referendum , The most intolerant religion and people , will have a stronger foothole to Impose their ways upon Switzerland ! Islams view ... To Kill or convert all nonbelievers !



Two complaints questioning the legality of ban had already been handed to Switzerland's Federal Court, Sonntag said.

Libya leader Gaddafi said the ban had done a great favor to al Qaeda militants, who would use it to attract recruits in a holy war against Europe, news agency SDA reported.

"The activists are now saying: 'we told you that they are our enemies...join al Qaeda and declare jihad on Europe '."


O.K. MoMo now thinks of Al Qaida As Activists ?


Politicians from the SVP, Switzerland's biggest party, and the conservative Federal Democratic Union gathered enough signatures to force the referendum on the initiative which opposed the "Islamisation of Switzerland."

Its campaign poster showed the Swiss flag covered in missile-like minarets and the portrait of a woman covered with a black chador and veil associated with strict Islam.

"The Club Helvetique is an association of bad losers," Sonntag reported SVP Vice-President Christoph Blocher as saying.


And an Association of the Blind .


NO TERRORIST THREAT

The United Nations last week denounced Switzerland's constitutional ban on building minarets as "deeply divisive," "clearly discriminatory" and at odds with the country's obligations under international law.

Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey said the Iranian government had summoned the Swiss ambassador to explain the situation.

"I don't know of any evidence of terrorist threats so far," she said. "We are doing everything to prevent the situation from escalating."

Switzerland, a country of 7.7 million, is home to more than 300,000 Muslims, mainly from Bosnia, Kosovo and Turkey, but has just four minarets.


7.7 Million people in Switzerland and only 300,000 Muslims ? WTF .
When you read everything being said in opposition to the Ban , You would think There was a Larger Number of Muslims in Switzerland !
Regardless of that , I fear Switzerland Will Give in !

Twelve die in drug war shootouts in Mexico

Sunday Their will be a "Peace" march held in Jaurez , The people holding the march have kept their names out of the news for fear that they will be Killed ,
Other activists and some outspoken students have been killed recently because of their opposition to the Drug Cartels !

In the 4 years since Calderon has taken Office 15,000 people have been killed throughout Mexico , 4000 plus just in the Jaurez area !
....
MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - Twelve people were killed in related gun battles in northern Mexico on Friday, one of the highest death tolls from a clash in the country's drug war in recent months.

Shooting broke out when soldiers approached a ranch during an operation near the city of Monterrey, military and local authorities told Reuters. Seven gunmen were killed in the shootout, they said.

Other gunmen, thought to be part of the Zetas drug gang, escaped the ranch and were chased by security forces, leading to another shootout that killed five people, including a bystander.

"So far we have 12 dead confirmed," a police source said. "Eleven were drug gang members and one was a civilian."

Since President Felipe Calderon took office in late 2006, more than 15,000 people have died in the drug war, which is tied to a fight between rival cartels for control of the lucrative trade.

Massive army deployments in cities such as Ciudad Juarez on the U.S. border have failed to quell the violence.

Pakistan mosque attacks kills 30

Muslim's Killing Muslim's , The Muslim way !
....BBC
At least 30 people have been killed and many injured in a coordinated attack at a mosque in the city of Rawalpindi, Pakistani military officials say.

Reports suggest there was an initial suicide attack during Friday prayers followed by a series of explosions.

Ambulances have rushed to the scene in the busy Qasim Market area of the city.

The Pakistani security forces have been targeted in a series of recent attacks. Nineteen people were killed in an army base attack in Rawalpindi in October.

Military spokesman Maj Gen Athar Abbas said the attack appeared to have been coordinated.

"There were certainly more than one attacker, so there is a possibility that some of them may still be hiding in the vicinity."

The BBC's Orla Guerin, in Rawalpindi, says helicopters are hovering over the city, suggesting the security forces are still looking for attackers that may be on the run.

The area around the mosque has been heavily cordoned off by police.

Mexico City police free dozens of "slave workers"

What a lovely damn country , South of our Border .
Kind of like Somalia !
....
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican police freed 107 people on Thursday who were imprisoned and forced to work in a clandestine factory in the capital, the prosecutor's office said.

Police raided the factory, which made clothing clasps, after several months of investigation following the complaint of a worker who had escaped from the facility.

Twenty-three people were arrested.

Mexican media reported the freed workers were suffering from malnutrition and showed signs of physical abuse.

Most were indigenous people from the south of the country and drug and alcohol addicts rounded up from Mexico City's streets, a spokeswoman for the city prosecutor's office said.

Some were lured into the factory with the promise of jobs. Investigators were also probing allegations that police officers helped round up some of those held in the factory during routine street patrols, Mexican media reported.

Mexicans trying to migrate to the United States are being increasingly targeted by Mexico's ruthless organized crime groups that have expanded into kidnapping and extortion in recent years.

Ahmadinejad: Not A 'Damn Thing' Israel Can Do to Stop Nuclear Program

Iran Is Nuke Proof ?
....Foxnews
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said there isn't a "damn thing" Israel can do to stop its nuclear program, Reuters reported.

"The Zionist regime (Israel) and its (western) backers cannot do a damn thing to stop Iran's nuclear work," Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech, according to Reuters.

Iran said Wednesday it will enrich uranium to a higher level on its own, the latest indication the country was rejecting a U.N.-backed proposal aimed at thwarting any effort by Tehran to make material for a nuclear weapon.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made the comment after expressing frustration with the ongoing negotiations over the proposal that Iran exchange the bulk of its low-enriched uranium for more highly enriched fuel rods to be used in a medical research nuclear reactor.

Low-enriched uranium can be used as fuel for nuclear energy, but enriched to much higher levels, it can be used as material for a weapon. Iran currently has one operating enrichment facility that has churned out around 3,300 pounds of 3.5 percent enriched uranium over the past years, but the country needs fuel enriched to 20 percent to power a medical research reactor.

"I declare here that with the grace of God, the Iranian nation will produce 20 percent (enriched uranium) fuel and anything it needs itself," Ahmadinejad told a cheering crowd of thousands in the central city Isfahan. "We told them, give us the 20 percent fuel (in an exchange)," he said. "But then they started adding conditions. So we said, if you want to give us the fuel we'll take it. If not, then fine and goodbye."

Ahmadinejad, in a speech Tuesday night, indicated Iran was through negotiating the nuclear issue.

"We were interested, from the beginning, in solving all the problems related to the nuclear issue," he said. "Now, the issue, in our opinion, is over."


With that kind of Attitude , Iran May be Over .

Islamist rebels claim Russian rail bombing

DUH !
....
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Islamist militants on Wednesday claimed responsibility for a bombing that derailed a Russian express train, killing 26 people, and vowed further "acts of sabotage" in a letter posted on a rebel website.

Friday night's attack on the luxury Nevsky Express running between Moscow and St Petersburg was the worst in Russia outside the North Caucasus in five years and raised fears of a new wave of bombings in major cities.

"This operation was prepared and carried out...pursuant to the orders of the Emir of the Caucasus Emirate Doku Umarov," the KavkazCenter.com website said, quoting a letter it said it received from Islamist rebels.

Umarov is Russia's most wanted guerrilla leader and leads a jihad insurgency which aims to free the mainly Muslim North Caucasus from Moscow's rule.

A second, smaller bomb detonated by mobile phone injured Russia's top detective as he visited the crime scene on Saturday. The Investigative Committee said its chief Alexander Bastrykin was hospitalised as a result of the blast but would not comment on his condition.

The militants' letter said the train bombing was part of a campaign of sabotage against strategic economic targets.

"These acts of sabotage will continue for as long as those occupying the Caucasus do not stop their policy of killing ordinary Muslims," the letter said.

And if the "Ordinary Muslims" stop all their terrorist activities which kill innocent people , And just plain get over themselves , maybe things would be better ?

Russia shifts stance on Iran, Ahmadinejad defiant

Very good news , Not that I don't think Iran is going to back down , I'm Positive they Won't !

It is all going to come down to who has the Bigger " Pair ".
....
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia will join any consensus on more sanctions against Iran, a senior Russian diplomatic source said on Tuesday after Tehran declared it would expand nuclear activity in defiance of a U.N. rebuke.

It was a thinly veiled Russian warning to Iran of waning patience with its failure to allay fears it aims to develop atom bombs in secret, and hinted that Iran could no longer rely on Russia to stop tougher world action against it.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad voiced defiance on Tuesday, saying sanctions would have no effect and that no more talks on the nuclear dispute were needed with the West. Speaking on state television, he also criticized Russian action.

Governors of the U.N. nuclear agency passed a resolution on Friday censuring Iran for covertly constructing a second enrichment plant near the holy city of Qom, in addition to its IAEA-monitored one at Natanz, and demanding a construction halt.

Tehran said on Sunday it would build 10 more uranium enrichment sites -- a pledge that Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday was "not a bluff".

Speaking of Islam !



Switzerland ? No , Dearborn Michigan !
This mosque ,The Islamic center of America , Has been around awhile , Construction of this Shithole , I mean Mosque ,took a long time !
It was started way before 9/11 ever occurred , after 9/11 it sat boarded up and really looking like a dump ! Never really found out what was up ! But I have My suspicions .
Led by Imam , Sayeed Hassan Al-Qazwini , He is one of the 40 Muslims denied the boarding of a plane in Germany back in 2007 , they were trying to return home after the Haaj .
This is also The largest Mosque in North America.

Teheran threatens to cut ties with IAEA

According to Larijani, "If the Western powers continue to use the ridiculous policy of sticks and carrots, Teheren too will form a new type of relationship with the West."

Sticks And Carrots , WTF ?
Never heard of that one , maybe it is a gay Iranian thing , Ahmadinejad Picked up recently from Venezuela ?
Either way it sounds like a threat to me , And why is it even when there are 25 out of 28 votes cast to censure Iran , Do these douchbags target the U.S ? it is not just us , it is also the rest of the civilized world that is against them !
Maybe we should play Pillows and Broccoli whith them ?
....
Two days after the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency passed a resolution censuring Iran, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani issued a warning of his own that Teheran would may cut cooperation with the UN nuclear agency watchdog.
Iranian President Mahmoud...

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, center, listens to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's speech, as judiciary chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, second right, and parliament speaker Ali Larijani, center left, sit, during the Friday prayers.

"If the West continues to pressure us, then parliament can review Iran's cooperation level with the IAEA," he told the assembly.

According to Larijani, "If the Western powers continue to use the ridiculous policy of sticks and carrots, Teheren too will form a new type of relationship with the West."

The US and Israel expressed satisfaction over the weekend with what officials from both countries termed "a growing momentum" of international pressure on Iran to halt activities that would enable it to construct nuclear weapons.

On Friday, the IAEA resolution censuring Iran passed by a 25-3 margin, demanding that Teheran immediately freeze construction of its newly revealed nuclear facility and heed Security Council resolutions to stop uranium enrichment.

US officials said that the UN agency's censure of Iran demonstrated international resolve to pressure Teheran if it doesn't comply with international demands concerning its nuclear program.

China executes two over tainted milk powder scandal

I'm Surprised that these may be the only two Executed over this !
....BBCNews
China has executed two people for their role in a scandal involving tainted milk powder that resulted in six children dying, officials have said.

More than 300,000 other infants were made ill from milk powder contaminated with melamine, an industrial chemical used to make plastics and fertiliser.

Zhang Yujun and Geng Jinping are the only people to have been executed over the scandal, court officials said.

Nineteen other people were sentenced to prison terms.

Zhang Yujun was convicted of endangering public safety by dangerous means, for selling more than 770 tonnes of the tainted milk powder from July 2007 to August 2008, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Geng Jinping, who managed a milk production centre, was convicted of supplying milk containing melamine to the now-bankrupt Sanlu Group and other dairies.

The two men were sentenced in January in Shijiazhuang, capital of Hebei, where Sanlu was based. Their appeals were rejected by the Hebei Provincial Higher People's Court in March.

Xinhua said the executions were carried out on Tuesday, but did not say where.

Five sentenced to death over Iran vote unrest

No trial ? Death sentences , what a shock !
No Human rights violations here ...Move along !
....
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Five people have been sentenced to death and 81 have received jail terms of up to 15 years in connection with unrest after Iran's disputed election in June, state broadcaster IRIB reported on Tuesday.

Citing a statement by the public relations office of Tehran's provincial court listing verdicts issued so far over post-vote incidents, it said those sentenced to death were affiliated to or members of "counter-revolutionary groups."

The same court said last month that death sentences had been handed down against three people over the street unrest and links to exiled opposition organizations.

It was not immediately clear if the five cited in Tuesday's statement were the same as those reported by an Iranian rights group earlier this week to have been sentenced to death.

The IRIB report did not name any of the accused nor say when the sentences were handed down.

Billions for state, but where are jobs?

(H/T to Vet on YT)
Another good example of Government spending and throwing money at states who piss it away on .....
Who knows what , It is not spent on jobs , it sure is not spent on the People , So where does it go ???
The last time I was home Back in Detroit , just a few months ago , their was so much road construction it would have almost been faster to walk home from the Airport ! that is all good except the fact that most of that money , every State gets , Every year , it already comes from a federal fund !
I am not sure how much Michigan received from the stimulus plan but with the History of this State I'm sure someone is sitting pretty right now ! And can you guess who that Governors name is ?
...Detroit Free Press
WASHINGTON -- Seven months into the massive federal stimulus program, the vast majority of government grants, contracts and loans in Michigan so far have created or retained virtually no jobs, a Free Press analysis shows.
The analysis also revealed that others who have been promised or have received stimulus money have overstated -- in some cases greatly -- the number of jobs created or protected.

Obama administration and state officials say it's too early to draw conclusions about the overall impact of the $787-billion nationwide program to stimulate the economy and generate jobs. They promise that job growth will follow as more funding arrives.

"It looks to us like the program is unfolding much as we hoped in Michigan," said White House economic adviser Jared Bernstein.

The Free Press examination of more than 1,800 government reports of those who have received or expect to receive stimulus money found the biggest impact was spurring or protecting public-sector or summer jobs -- not private-sector jobs. Michigan has the nation's worst unemployment rate.

Officials reported that by Sept. 30, some 22,500 Michigan jobs were created or retained thanks to the promise of $5.2 billion in stimulus money for the state, $1.2 billion of which had arrived.

The analysis also found:

• Three of every four stimulus grants, contracts and loans approved in Michigan created or retained one job or less.

• Fewer than 700 awards had received some money, and nearly half of those -- 327 -- had created one job or less, at a cost per job of $2.7 million.

• Some job estimates were wrong: General Motors Co., for instance, reported 105 jobs saved or created for a government purchase of 5,000 vehicles but later said no jobs were saved or created. The City of Detroit reported 342 jobs it now says were projections -- not jobs already created or retained.

Peter Morici, a University of Maryland economist, said the results suggest the stimulus won't deliver promised results.

"All those claims," he said, "are ridiculous."

70 percent of Americans see China as economic threat:

Not surprising at all , this is one of those points that Pres. Obama needs to pay attention to , And Listen to the people !
At 71% , I would say that WE the people can see what is going on ! obviously The Obamasiah sees and hears the sound of Money , and not us !
when we are under constant Cyber Attacks , and persistent unfairness in trade ,
And the loss of Hundreds of thousands of Manufacturing Jobs , And the Leader of our country is hugging and kissing with these Communist Bastards , Something is way out of whack !
I just hope Obama Is at least getting a Reach Around !
....AFP
WASHINGTON — A clear majority of Americans see China as an economic threat, a poll showed Monday, as Barack Obama sought to bolster relations on his first trip to Beijing and Shanghai as president.

More than 70 percent of those questioned in the CNN poll said they considered the Asian giant to be an economic threat, while only 28 percent disagreed with the notion.

Two-thirds of those surveyed said they saw China as a source of unfair competition for American companies, while only a quarter viewed China positively as a huge potential market for US goods.

"That may be why 71 percent of Americans consider China an economic threat to the US," said CNN polling director Keating Holland. "Americans tend to view foreign countries as competition, and China is no exception."

Trade tensions between the powers have intensified in recent months, with both sides taking action against the other's imports.
Obama, due to make his first presidential visit to China on November 15-18, ignited the first major trade spat of his presidency last month after he imposed punitive duties on Chinese-made tires.

An angry Beijing lodged a complaint at the World Trade Organization and retaliated by launching a probe into possible unfair trade practices involving imports of US car products and chicken meat.

Americans were split on whether China posed a military threat with slightly more, 51 percent, agreeing with the statement than disagreeing (47 percent).


" I would bet a large sum of money , that if the situation with the Chinese Military were reported on a little more often (And Honestly) those numbers would be significantly Different ! "

American Muslims must stand up for America

It is rare to read an article where someone actually says it like it is , Stu Bykofsky from Philly.com does just that !
Nidal Hasan Hopefully has done one good thing here opened the eyes of many people into the way Muslim Extremists think , When you are ready to trample underfoot , everything about the country you live in Because of your religious Ideology , and you take extreme actions ,You become a Terrorist
....Philly.com
AN AMERICAN, who seems normal but is driven by religious fanaticism, picks up a gun and kills 29 unarmed, innocent people.

This was not U.S. Army Major NidalMalik Hasan, who killed 13. It was Baruch Goldstein, who killed Muslim worshippers in a West Bank mosque in 1994.

I have no trouble calling Goldstein a religious extremist and a Jewish terrorist. He was widely and loudly condemned by almost all American Jews and Israelis.

Why should anyone pause before calling Hasan a religious extremist and an Islamic terrorist? He was apparently animated by religious belief; his business card carried the acronym SOA, for Soldier of Allah.

Not Uncle Sam. Allah.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, America's largest Muslim civil-rights and advocacy group, denounced Hasan's alleged actions, but stopped short of calling him a "terrorist." In a brief interview Thursday, CAIR Executive Director Ibrahim Hooper told me that all the facts are not in.

I had follow-up questions, but Hooper begged off because of a heavy interview schedule.

In an interview Saturday, M. Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, had no problem declaring Hasan's act "terrorism," which he called a symptom of the underlying cause, "political Islam."

The government has charged Hasan with 13 counts of premeditated murder, which means the government doesn't think he suddenly "snapped."...

At the Fort Hood memorial service, President Obama reminded America that this is a "time of war."

In a time of war, as we ask young men and women to die for America, we are entitled to ask questions of American Muslims without igniting a witch hunt. Questions are not accusations.

America has asked questions, and been answered, before.

In World War II, Japanese-Americans were wrongly rounded up and interned in camps. No one would dream of that for American Muslims.

Italian-Americans were sent to kill Italians, and they did. German-Americans were sent to kill Germans, and they did. The 442nd Regimental Combat Team, composed mostly of Japanese-Americans, took horrific casualties and served with extraordinary valor. They were "Americans first."

Can we count on the same from the roughly 3,500 Muslims who serve in our military, not to mention civilians? Some of Hasan's colleagues quoted him as saying he was a "Muslim first and American second," the London Telegraph reported, with Time adding that Hasan held Islamic Shariah law above the Constitution he had sworn to defend...



Note"3,500 admitted Muslims , the belief is there are well over 10,000 "


"If Islam, as we hear, has been hijacked by extremists, the logical people to rescue it are Muslims themselves. Muslims in the West, starting in America, have to stand up for democracy and be noisy about it, as Muslim author/activist Irshad Manji urges. We've seen mass rallies - in the West! - of Muslims denouncing democracy. Where are the pro-democracy Muslim rallies?"


"If a loyal American Muslim asks, "Why should I have to do this?" my answer is easy: You don't have to. You should want to. "

NASA spacecraft confirms water ice deposits on moon

This is really from a couple of days ago , been busy ,busy ,busy !
But Amazing , not only did they find water this time but they found a significant amount ! So much that it will now stir the brains of NASA into a full fledged Moon Mission ! ( If they Can Keep Obama Out of the Way )
....CNET
Making a bigger splash than expected, the crash of an empty rocket stage in a permanently shadowed crater near the moon's south pole last month kicked up a surprising amount of water ice and vapor, confirming the presence of a potentially valuable resource for future space travelers.

"I'm here today to tell you that indeed, yes, we found water," said Anthony Colaprete, the project scientist and principal investigator for the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite. "And we didn't find just a little bit, we found a significant amount."

Holding up water jugs to make the point, he said "if you remember, a month ago we were talking about teaspoons going into glasses over football fields. Well, now I can say today that in the 20- to 30-meter (65- to 100-foot-wide) crater LCROSS made, we found maybe about a dozen of these two-gallon buckets worth of water."

And more than water. Data from the LCROSS instruments show signs of other compounds that may shed light on the moon's evolution.

"It's a whole lot more beyond the water," Colaprete said. "That's the exciting part in my mind, it's not only about the water now. There's actually a lot more here that we're going to be talking about in the months ahead, looking at the LCROSS data."



" With every new discovery in space we come closer to "Seeing" What is Really/actually there !
It is Human nature to Explore , Space should not be left off the Map Because of Some Jackass's Political View ! or Religious beliefs , whats there is there and that is the reality of it , Created by a God , Or by some other means !
For anyone to think that we are the only ones Floating around the Universe , is the root of true Arrogance ! "

Ex-Lawmaker gets thirteen years in prison for Bribery

For a Change , some Justice due , to one of the worst kind of criminals in the U.S. , A Crooked ass Dimocrat representative !
This should be a Huge slap in the Face to the Dimocrats who ran their mouths about his Innocence !
But I'm sure we will hear the Boo hooing all over again !
....
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Democratic U.S. Representative William Jefferson, who hid $90,000 in cash in his freezer, was sentenced on Friday to 13 years in prison for bribery, racketeering and money laundering.

Jefferson, who lost re-election last year in Louisiana, was accused in 2007 of soliciting millions of dollars in bribes from companies while using his office to broker business deals in Africa. He was convicted in August on 11 of 16 counts.

The case became particularly well-known because FBI agents said they found $90,000 in cash wrapped in foil and hidden inside various frozen food containers in his freezer.

Prosecutors recommended to the judge that Jefferson, 62, be sentenced to at least 27 years in prison. Defense lawyers asked for leniency, citing Jefferson's long public service, and said he should get less than 10 years.

"How about Life in Prison ? Willams deserves nothing less ! No Leniency , His service was used to Help try to sell America out from under the People ! "

A Justice Department spokesman said Jefferson received a 13-year prison sentence, followed by three years of probation. He was also ordered to forfeit $470,000.

"Mr. Jefferson is well-known for the $90,000 found in his freezer. It is our hope that he will now be well-known for the tough sentence handed down today, showing that no one --

including our elected officials -- are above the law," Neil

MacBride, the U.S. attorney in Virginia, said in a statement.

During his trial in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, prosecutors said Jefferson had sought hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes relating to business ventures, mainly in Africa.

They included telecommunications deals in Nigeria and Ghana, oil concessions in Equatorial Guinea, satellite transmission contracts in Botswana, Equatorial Guinea and the Republic of Congo, and a Nigerian sugar plant.

US mosques and New York skyscraper seized over Iran links

in an extraordinary step likely to worsen relations between Washington and Tehran.

So what ! Should we sit idly by and watch these meatbags Disolve our country bit by bit ? No , I did not think so !
At this point in time , If every Mosque Within the United States , is Not under investigation , Then I would consider that A major Problem !
Given the Recent situations Involving "Radical Muslims " how could you think otherwise ? A shooting of an Imam In Detroit , A Major in the army has sudden Jihad syndrome and kills 13 of his supposed Fellow Army personnel , And then there is Cair , Do we need to say more ?

Well how about this !
....Gaurdian,uk
Federal investigators moved to seize four mosques in the US and a skyscraper in Manhattan yesterday over their alleged financial aid to Iran, in an extraordinary step likely to worsen relations between Washington and Tehran.

Prosecutors in Manhattan filed a civil complaint in the federal court seeking the forfeiture of more than $500m in assets of the Alavi Foundation, which describes itself as a charitable foundation, and a company, Assa.

The mosques are in New York City, Maryland, California and Texas.

Prosecutors claim that the foundation and the company have been engaged in money laundering, with the cash sent back to Tehran.

The move could be designed to punish the Tehran government at time when its relations with the US are already strained over Iran's alleged nuclear weapons programme.

But the Obama administration also risks incurring the anger of American Muslims if the mosques, all Shia, are seized. The takeover of mosques would also raise constitutional questions around the right of freedom to religion.


"Again Who cares ? I would hope they would get pissed off , maybe they will wake up and see what the radical fringe of Islam Have done with their Cult ! I mean Religion !
As for the right to freedom of Religion ! That does not count when it involves terrorists and illegal Activities does it ? "



The move comes at a sensitive time, with a debate under way in the US over the loyalty of American Muslims after the shooting at Fort Hood last week. Major Nadil Malik Hasan was yesterday charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder.


" And rightfully so "

The Alavi Foundation, on its website, declares its mission to be the promotion of charitable and philanthropic causes through educational, religious and cultural programmes.

"The foundation does this by making contributions to not-for-profit organisations within the United States that support interfaith harmony and promote Islamic culture and Persian language, literature and civilisation," it says.

" Yeah , all to push the Muslim agenda in the United States ! "

Microsoft bans up to 1 million Xbox Live users

Uh Oh ! Not that I have a "Modded" 360 or anything but Even If I didn't I would not have gone on Xbox live with COD modern warfare 2 , It has been Known for a while that this was coming with modwar2 and a couple of other games !
For the million or so that got banned and the ones yet to be ,
Nice payin attention , and up to date , on what you do Illegally !
....MSNBC
Anywhere between an estimated 600,000 and 1 million players who use Microsoft's Xbox Live gaming service will be cut off from the service because they have modified their game consoles or played games that were illegally downloaded from file-sharing sites, according to the company.

"All consumers should know that piracy is illegal and that modifying their Xbox 360 console to play pirated discs violates the Xbox Live terms of use, will void their warranty and result in a ban from Xbox Live," Microsoft said in a statement Wednesday.

The timing of the statement coincides with the release this week of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2," a highly anticipated Xbox 360 game. The game's release means big sales — but also sales of pirated copies, which are illegal.

There are more than 20 million players worldwide who use the Xbox Live gaming service, according to Microsoft. The service lets gamers play each other online as well as buy and download games.

"It's fair for people to feel that they should be able to do whatever they want with something that they have bought, but it's also fair for Microsoft to do everything it can to reduce the risk of piracy," said Dave Taylor, publishing director for GamerZines.com.

Veterans day !

Military not told about Ft. Hood suspect's e-mails

Here is some more lunacy developing out of the Fort Hood Massacre/terrorist attack !
It seems that a task force in charge of Investigating Hasan , And his e -Mails to Anwar Al-Awlaki , Which did include a Rep From the department of Defense , Failed to recognize the Signs in front of them !
We have been here before , This is the Same type of B.S that was going on Pre 9/11 , And again it has resulted in a terrorist Attack on our homeland and Innocent people Dying !
....The LA Times
Two high-profile anti-terrorism task forces did not inform the Defense Department about contacts between a radical Islamic cleric and the Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 people in last week's rampage at Ft. Hood, a senior Defense official said Tuesday.

On the day of a memorial service for those killed at the Texas military base, the revelation compounded questions about whether the government had known enough in advance to stop the gunman.

The FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Forces investigated e-mails that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan sent over the last year to Anwar al Awlaki, an imam in Yemen who espouses a radical Islamist ideology and who has ties to militants. However, officials said, task force members concluded that the communications posed no threat and had been undertaken as part of Hasan's research on Muslims, the military and post-traumatic stress disorders.

Defense officials said Tuesday that the department did not learn about Hasan's contacts with Awlaki until after the Ft. Hood shootings. "There was no U.S. Army or other Department of Defense organization that knew of any contact he had with Muslim extremists," said the senior Defense official, who requested anonymity when discussing the ongoing investigation.

At least one of the task forces included a Defense Department investigator, who did not seek to share the intelligence with the military, officials said.

Various government agencies assign officials and investigators to the Joint Terrorism Task Forces. But there are strict rules about sharing information that is discussed or developed on a task force. "Any and all information from the task force . . . has to be approved by the FBI," the senior Defense official said.

Senior federal law enforcement officials acknowledge that approval is required from a joint task force supervisor, traditionally an FBI official, to share information from investigations with agencies.

In the case of the Hasan e-mails, however, the Pentagon investigator -- a member of the Defense Criminal Investigative Service -- agreed with the task force assessment that the psychiatrist did not pose a threat. The investigator did not press to bring the case to the military's attention.

"It just didn't get to that point," said a U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity when discussing the case. "They made the judgment that it did not rise to that level."

Execution set for DC sniper John Allen Muhammad

Well if my calculations are correct , this piece of shit is already dead !
I Personally believe lethal Injection is way to kind Hearted of an Execution for A murderer of this Caliber , cruel and unusual punishment was never considered for the 10 people Muhammed and Malvo killed ! Why should we consider it for them ?
A nice slow electrocution would be more fitting , or even a firing Squad ! ( Which by the way is still a choice for execution in a few States !)

JARRATT, Va. — Virginia's governor refused to spare the life of John Allen Muhammad and cleared the way for his execution Tuesday night for the sniper attacks in 2002 that left 10 dead and spread such fear people were afraid to go shopping, cut grass or pump gas.

The three-week killing spree in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., was carried out with a teenage accomplice who is serving life in prison without parole. Muhammad, 48, was to die by injection at 9 p.m. after he exhausted his court appeals and Gov. Tim Kaine denied clemency.

Muhammad's attorneys had asked Kaine to commute his sentence to life in prison because they said he was severely mentally ill.

"I think crimes that are this horrible, you just can't understand them, you can't explain them," said Kaine, a Democrat known for carefully considering death penalty cases. "They completely dwarf your ability to look into the life of a person who would do something like this and understand why."

Muhammad was sentenced to death for killing Dean Harold Meyers at a gas station in northern Virginia. He and his accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, also were suspected of fatal shootings in Alabama, Arizona, Louisiana and Washington state.

Prosecutors chose to put Muhammad and Malvo on trial in Virginia first because of the state's willingness to execute killers. He and Malvo were also convicted of six other murders in Maryland and both were sentenced to six life terms.

The death penalty was later ruled out for Malvo because the U.S. Supreme Court barred the execution of juveniles, who was 17 during the killing spree.

Korean navies exchange fire in disputed waters

Wow , The Norks tucked their tails and ran when tested by the South Korean navy !
This is more of North Korea testing their limits of who and how much they can Push ,with a damaged ship , maybe they found out that they are not so tough that No one will fight back with them !
....
Seoul, South Korea (CNN) -- North and South Korean naval forces exchanged fire on Tuesday in disputed waters, a South Korean defense official said.

The two Koreas clashed off their west coast, the first such incident in seven years, each blaming the other for the incident.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak convened an emergency security meeting and urged the military to to ensure that the naval clash did not escalate into something greater, Yonhap reported.

South Korea issued three verbal warnings to ship from the Communist north once the vessel had crossed a demarcation line late Tuesday morning, said Rear Adm. Lee Ki Sik of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The South Koreans then fired a warning shot but when the North Korean vessel continued southward, the South Koreans opened fire.

The North Koreans returned fire before heading back, their ship damaged in the exchange, Lee said. There were no South Korean casualties, Lee said.

Somali pirates seize weapons ship, attack tanker

The Somalia pirates again reach out even farther in their attempt to takeover the waterways around the Horn of Africa !
And now they have more weapons to do it with !
....
MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somali pirates have seized a United Arab Emirates-flagged cargo ship loaded with weapons bound for the anarchic Horn of Africa nation in contravention of a U.N. arms embargo, maritime experts said Monday.

Also Monday, the gunmen launched their longest range hijack attempt yet -- opening fire on a giant Hong Kong-flagged crude oil tanker 1,000 nautical miles east of Mogadishu.

Andrew Mwangura of the East African Seafarers' Assistance Program told Reuters he believed the weapons ship was using a fake name. He said it had been hijacked Sunday and was now held near the northern Somali town of Garacad.

"She is one of the regular weapons carriers circumventing the U.N. arms embargo on Somalia," Mwangura said. Maritime sources say the craft is believed to be carrying light arms and ammunition, as well as rockets and rocket-propelled grenades.

"We understand the weapons belong to the Somali government," Farah, a pirate, told Reuters by satellite telephone.

Another gang member, Hassan, said the weapons ship was well known to them: "It has been circling in our ocean for a long time, bringing illegal weapons to massacre Somalis," he said.

Chavez to Troops: Prepare for War With Colombia

Sounds like Hugo wants a war ! Prepare , Hugo , Prepare !
....foxnews
CARACAS, Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez on Sunday ordered Venezuela's military to prepare for a possible armed conflict with Colombia, saying his country's soldiers should be ready if the United States attempts to provoke a war between the South American neighbors.

Chavez said Venezuela could end up going to war with Colombia as tensions between them rise, and he warned that if a conflict broke out "it could extend throughout the whole continent."

"The best way to avoid war is preparing for it," Chavez told military officers during his weekly television and radio program. Venezuela's socialist leader has also cited a recent deal between Bogota and Washington giving U.S. troops greater access to military bases as a threat to regional stability.

There was no immediate reaction from either the Colombian or U.S. government, but in the past they have denied intentions to start a war with Venezuela and said the base deal is needed to fight the war on drugs and insurgents in Colombia, which is a major cocaine producer struggling with a decades-old internal conflict.

Tensions along the Venezuela-Colombia border have been exacerbated in recent weeks by a series of shootings and slayings.

Four men on motorcycles shot and killed two Venezuelan National Guard troops at a checkpoint near the border in Venezuela's western Tachira state last week, prompting Chavez's government to temporarily close some border crossings.

And last month, Venezuelan authorities arrested at least 10 people in Tachira alleging involvement in paramilitary groups. The bullet-ridden bodies of 11 men, nine of them Colombians, were also found last month in Tachira after being abducted from a soccer field.

Muslim Population in the Military Raises Difficult Issues

Difficult Issues ? You Don't say !
I guess the main issue would be If we can really trust A Muslim In the United States Military , Or do we just keep rolling along like it was not that big of a deal , And wait till it happens again ? (And Repeat as many times as needed , to not offend Muslims ? )
What is the difference between a Muslim suicide Bomber that kills 13 people and injures 30 , And a Major in the U.S. Army who happens to be a Muslim , snapping and going on a rampage killing 13 People and wounding 30 ?
Well one is a Terrorist attack !
And The other , In my opinion ... Also A Terrorist attack
....Fox News
The deadly rampage at Fort Hood is forcing Pentagon officials to confront difficult questions about the military's growing Muslim population.

The military has worked hard to recruit more Muslims since the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the number of Muslim troops, while still small, has been increasing. There were 3,409 Muslims in the active-duty military as of April 2008, according to Pentagon statistics.

Military personnel don't have to disclose their religions, and many officials believe the actual number of Muslim soldiers may be at least 10,000 higher than the Pentagon statistics. For instance, the military "Officer Record Brief" of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the suspect in the Fort Hood shootings, said he had "no religious preference" and didn't identify him as a Muslim.

Even now, Muslim soldiers remain fairly rare in some parts of the military. At West Point, Army officials said there were just 24 Muslim cadets out of a total student body of 4,400. The Muslim cadets worship in an interfaith center on the bucolic New York campus, but don't have a dedicated mosque.

The push to boost Muslim representation has proven to be a double-edged sword for the military, which desperately needs the Muslim soldiers for their language skills and cultural knowledge, but also worries that a small percentage of those soldiers might harbor extremist ideologies or choose to turn their guns on their fellow soldiers.

In one of the military's most notorious cases of fratricide since Vietnam, Army Sgt. Hasan Akbar, a convert to Islam, rolled a grenade into a tent filled with other soldiers in April 2003. The attack killed two officers and wounded 14 others. During his court-martial, prosecution witnesses testified Sgt. Akbar had committed the attack because he believed the U.S. military would kill Muslim civilians during the coming invasion. Sgt. Akbar was later sentenced to death.

Muslim soldiers also face challenges stemming from their dual identities as adherents of the Islamic faith and as members of the U.S. military. In Iraq and Afghanistan, Muslims serving in the U.S. military often use fake last names to avoid being singled out by insurgents as traitors and to prevent reprisals against their families elsewhere in the world.

Doctors, five others held in Mexican stolen babies case

Anything for a buck in Mexico ! Even stealing newborn babies and telling the mothers (Who are Sedated ) that their Babies have died , and they were already cremated !
Their is absolutely no shame in Mexico , Anything goes !
....CNN World
Mexico City, Mexico (CNN) -- Mexican authorities have arrested three doctors, a nurse and a receptionist accused of stealing newborns at a private hospital and selling them, the Mexico City attorney general's office says.

A married couple and a woman also were arrested on charges that they bought two newborn girls and registered them as their own offspring, said Luis Genaro Vasquez Rodriguez, an official with the attorney general's office.

The doctors and hospital personnel would tell parents from whom the children were stolen that their babies had died, authorities said Wednesday.

One of the abducted babies, Diana Fernanda Castillo, has been reunited with her biological mother. Authorities who found the baby and confirmed her identity through genetic tests handed her over to her mother, Vanesa Edith Castillo Guzmán, on Thursday.

Authorities said they arrested Drs. Victor Manuel Mancera Gonzalez, 74; Jorge Adalberto Guerrero Bustos, 55; and Alfredo Ortiz Rosas, 52. Nurse Maria Guadalupe Castro Morales, 58, and receptionist Leonel Rodriguez Mondragon also were arrested, the attorney general's office said in a statement posted on its Web site.

All the suspects were charged with trafficking in minors, using false documents and organized crime.

Other suspects arrested were married couple Antonio Merino Hernandez, 46, and Maria de la Luz Ruiz Padilla, 39, as well as psychologist Cinthia Nayeli Perez Ortiz, 37, officials said. In both cases, authorities said, they were sold babies born in Mexico City's Hospital Central de Oriente.

ISLAMABAD: Troops combating militants in South Waziristan maintained their advance on Friday and moved into the hometown of the late Taliban chief, Baitullah Mehsud, and blew up his house.

The town of Makin was one of the main bastions of terrorists in the region.

A security official told Dawn that the success achieved so far had brought troops closer to completion of the first phase of the operation.

He said the link-up of forces in Laddah and Makin would be followed by a major search and clearance operation.

He said a large part of Makin town had been cleared, adding that an important road and junctions of Makin-Laddah-Sararogha and Makin-Ghariom-Sararogha had been blocked.

He also said that fierce clashes had taken place and the Taliban were fleeing, leaving behind weapons and ammunition.

According to ISPR, 24 terrorists were killed and one was captured on Thursday and Friday.

Security forces are consolidating and strengthening their positions around Sararogha and the Shakai– Kaniguram axis around Laddah.

In Bangai Khel, Totai Langar Khel and Kot Langar Khel, large quantities of arms and ammunition were seized and a suspect taken into custody.
