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 !
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 !
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 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
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 )
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 !
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 ! "

If you have not read "Stealth Jihad " by Robert Spencer , Now would be the Time !

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 !
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

Veterans day !

To all The Bad Ass Brave Men And Woman of the U.S. Military !

You are the Best !


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 !
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.

Troops enter Baitullah’s hometown; 24 militants dead

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

The Taliban Fleeing ? It seems they are doing a lot of that ( The little Bitches )
But still , it is hard to figure out what is happening , You would think there would be a lot more resistance , equaling more dead Taliban !
Nice touch blowing up Baitullahs House ! (Insult to Injury ?)

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.

Army post shooting rampage leaves 13 dead, 30 hurt

Authorities have not ruled out that Hasan was acting on behalf of some unidentified radical group, the official said. He would not say whether any evidence had come to light to support that theory.

This POS probably was not acting on behalf of a radical muslim Group , he may have been suffering from sudden Jihad Syndrome .
Why would you join the Army ? Why would you be a Muslim In the U.S. military ?
13 dead 30 wounded , for what ? Because this pussy Muslim traumatic stress Psychiatrist snapped ?
Now the Bigger problem , Even if an Isolated incident , what are you supposed to think about other Muslims that are part of our Military ? Can you trust them ? Do you never send them into battle now ? What do you do with them ?

Can you TRUST them ?
FORT HOOD, Texas — Military officials were starting Friday to piece together what may have pushed an Army psychiatrist trained to help soldiers in distress to turn on his comrades in a shooting rampage that killed 13 people and wounded 30 in Texas.

The suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, was on a ventilator and unconscious in a hospital after being shot four times during the shootings at the Army's sprawling Fort Hood, post officials said. In the early chaos after the shootings, authorities believed they had killed him, only to discover later that he had survived.

In Washington, a senior U.S. official said authorities at Fort Hood initially thought one of the victims who had been shot and killed was the shooter. The mistake resulted in a delay of several hours in identifying Hasan as the alleged assailant.

Authorities have not ruled out that Hasan was acting on behalf of some unidentified radical group, the official said. He would not say whether any evidence had come to light to support that theory.
The motive for the shooting wasn't clear, but Hasan was apparently set to deploy soon, and had expressed some anger about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, said generals at Fort Hood told her that Hasan was about to deploy overseas. Retired Col. Terry Lee, who said he had worked with Hasan, told Fox News he was being sent to Afghanistan.

Lee said Hasan had hoped Obama would pull troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq and got into frequent arguments with others in the military who supported the wars.

For six years before reporting for duty at Fort Hood, in July, the 39-year-old Army major worked at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center pursuing a career in psychiatry, as an intern, a resident and, last year, a fellow in disaster and preventive psychiatry. He received his medical degree from the military's Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md., in 2001.

But his record wasn't sterling. At Walter Reed, he received a poor performance evaluation, according to an official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case publicly. And while he was an intern, Hasan had some "difficulties" that required counseling and extra supervision, said Dr. Thomas Grieger, who was the training director at the time.

At least six months ago, Hasan came to the attention of law enforcement officials because of Internet postings about suicide bombings and other threats, including posts that equated suicide bombers to soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.

Investigators had not determined for certain whether Hasan was the author of the posting, and a formal investigation had not been opened before the shooting, said law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the case.

Most Pakistanis back war against militants:

As they should , It is amazing that more people do not support the Eradication of the Taliban and Al Qaida from the face of the Earth !
It is as though they are loved by more people than ones that despise them.... Go ahead Hate the U.S . but you should at least support the efforts to Kill And Defeat Radical Islam in all shapes and sizes !
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - A majority of Pakistanis support military action against Islamist militants although more people blame the United States for the violence than blame the Taliban, a poll released on Tuesday showed.

Pakistan's army launched an offensive against Pakistani Taliban militants in their stronghold in the South Waziristan region on the Afghan border on October 17 after a string of militant bomb attacks and commando raids on urban targets.

The militants are being squeezed out of their strongholds but have retaliated by stepping up bomb attacks.

Many Pakistanis are suspicious of the government's support for the U.S-led global campaign against violent militancy and many have long opposed military action against Islamists.

But political analysts say the numerous bomb attacks in towns and cities over recent months have convinced many that action is necessary.

According to a Gilani Research Foundation poll conducted by Gallup Pakistan, an affiliate of Gallup International, 51 percent of people support the government offensive.

"There is cautious support in Pakistani public opinion for the military action currently underway in South Waziristan," the research group said.

Pakistani forces say enter a main Taliban base

I can't get over the fact that Pakistan is saying that they are right in the heart of the Taliban Stronghold , Yet only 33 or so Taliban have been killed in the past couple of days !
Something just is not making sense here !
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani soldiers have entered a main Taliban stronghold in South Waziristan near the Afghan border and are searching the area, the military said on Tuesday.

The army launched an offensive on October 17 aimed at rooting out and defeating Pakistani Taliban militants in their South Waziristan bastions.

Soldiers are advancing from three directions toward main bases, including the town of Sararogha, which the army said soldiers had entered.

"A search and clearance operation is on," the army said in a statement.

South Waziristan' rugged landscape of barren mountains and hidden ravines has become a global center of Islamist militancy and many foreign al Qaeda fighters are believed to be based there along with thousands of Pakistani insurgents.

The militants are being squeezed out of their strongholds but have retaliated by stepping up bomb attacks on urban targets.

Earlier Tuesday, the army said 21 militants and a soldier had been killed in South Waziristan over the previous 24 hours.

China launches "strike hard" crackdown in restive west

A strike hard Campaign ? Sounds pretty harsh , but we are talking about China .
I guess we can expect to see some more arrests , and convictions , with those convicted being sent to forced labor camps , And possibly another death sentence here or there !
China is a bitch when it comes to Cracking down on its people !
BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese forces have launched a "strike hard" security campaign in the restless far western region of Xinjiang, vowing to wipe out lawlessness and "change the face" of the public security situation there.

Xinjiang's regional capital Urumqi has been rocked by ethnic violence twice this year, in which a total of around 200 people died..

Now the regional government is demanding tough action to bring stability back to the region, Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily reported on Tuesday.

"From the start of November, public security bodies in Xinjiang will ... start a thorough 'strike hard and punish' campaign to further consolidate the fruits of maintaining stability and eliminate security dangers," it said.

Security forces would "root out places where criminals breed, and change the face of the public security situation in these areas," the report said.

The term "strike hard" harkens back to the 1980s, when Chinese police forces launched campaign-like sweeps intended to catch law-breakers. Pro-reform legal experts in China later criticized those campaigns for ignoring suspects' rights and setting targets for arrests that encouraged abuses.

The Xinjiang government's revival of the "strike hard" rhetoric appears to be another part of its effort to win back the support of residents of the region who claimed that Uighur law-breakers were not being punished.

Police will continue to look for suspects involved in the July riots, and "keep a close eye on clues and cases involving terrorism and explosions," the official Xinhua news agency said.

Iran May Not Be Ready to Ship Out Uranium

more stalling , more deceiving , more of the same old B.S !
An Iranian diplomat says his country wants to buy fuel for its Tehran research reactor, the latest indication that Iran is not willing to ship most of its enriched uranium out of the country.

Ali Asghar Soltanieh says Iran wants to purchase the fuel and is ready for new talks to work out details.

Asked if that means Iran is not willing to export most of its enriched uranium stockpile for it to be turned into the fuel, he again said his country wants to buy ready-made fuel.

This came as IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei said Monday that Iran must respond to IAEA queries about its nuclear program, and be "forthcoming" in its response to an IAEA fuel proposal.

Soltanieh's comments Monday were a strong indication that Iran will not accept the international offer that would have stripped Iran of most of its enriched stockpile.

If Iran exports most of its enriched uranium, its ability to make the core of a nuclear warhead would be delayed.

Pakistan selects some drone targets

‘The image remained just as stable when the CIA remotely launched two Hellfire missiles from the Predator. Authorities watched the fiery blast in real time. After the dust cloud dissipated, all that remained of Mehsud was a detached torso."

Anything that helps Dispatch A member of the Taliban ,Al Qaida or basically any Radical Islamist is O.K. with me ! Obama agreeing to let Pakistan choose a few targets here and there , Not a Problem !
Especially when they are targets Like Baitullah Meshud !
The Only bitch I have is "Where is the Damn Video" Yes Video ! It seems that a privaliged few Were able to watch the entire demise of The Taliban Fat ass Baitullah Mehsud! IN REAL TIME !
The little description here leaves ME wanting more !
WASHINGTON: The Obama administration quietly decided last March to allow Pakistan to choose some of its own targets for drone attacks, according to the New Yorker, a prestigious US magazine.

Earlier last week, the magazine published a piece on the use of unmanned aircraft to target Al Qaeda and Taliban suspects in Fata. On Sunday, its author Jane Mayer gave an online interview to the readers, telling them that the Obama administration agreed to allow Pakistanis to select targets to calm down Islamabad’s protests over the drone attacks.

The change in US policy led to the killing of Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud in August.

The journalist, who interviewed senior US intelligence officials for the interview, wrote that on Aug 5, officials at the Central Intelligence Agency, in Langley, Virginia, watched a live video feed relaying close-up footage of Baitullah Mehsud, the leader of the Taliban in Pakistan.

‘He could be seen reclining on the rooftop of his father-in-law’s house, in Zanghara, a hamlet in South Waziristan. It was a hot summer night, and he was joined outside by his wife and his uncle, a medic; at one point, the remarkably crisp images showed that Mehsud, who suffered from diabetes and a kidney ailment, was receiving an intravenous drip.

‘The image remained just as stable when the CIA remotely launched two Hellfire missiles from the Predator. Authorities watched the fiery blast in real time. After the dust cloud dissipated, all that remained of Mehsud was a detached torso. Eleven others died: his wife, his father-in-law, his mother-in-law, a lieutenant, and seven bodyguards.’

In her interview, Ms Mayer noted that the use of unmanned aircraft to kill militants had both good news and bad news. According to the CIA, they’ve killed more than half of the 20 most wanted Al Qaeda suspects. The bad news is that they’ve inflamed anti-American sentiment, because they’ve also killed hundreds of civilians.
