Putin responds NBC

If we speak of the arms race, it began at that very moment, when the United States pulled out of the ABM Treaty. We wanted to prevent this. We called on our American partners to work together on these programmes.

Firstly, we asked them not to withdraw from the treaty, not to destroy it. But the US pulled out. It was not us who did this but the US.

Yet we again suggested we work together even after this. I told my colleague then, “Imagine what would happen if Russia and the US joined forces in the crucial area of strategic security. The world would change for a long period to come, and the level of global security would rise to an all-time high.” The reply was, “This is very interesting.” But they ultimately rejected all our proposals.

"There is evidence that shows that there presently exists an international corporate criminal syndicate that, in violation of the RICO Act (18 USC sec 1961-1969), is intent upon embarking upon a cascading event of genocide within the United States, in the UK, and in other countries around the world, most likely in Autumn 2009/Winter2010, using as their weapon an enforced program of toxic vaccines after a deliberate release of a virus to spark a pandemic could immensely profit vaccine companies.

The toxic vaccinations, classified as bioweapons by the US and EU governments’ own regulations."


It's also known that vaccines don't protect against diseases they're designed to prevent and often cause them.

"It's crucial to understand that these vaccines are experimental, untested, toxic and extremely dangerous to the human immune system. They contain squalene-based adjuvants that cause a host of annoying to life-threatening autoimmune diseases. They must be avoided, even if mandated. It's also known that vaccines don't protect against diseases they're designed to prevent and often cause them. They should be banned but proliferate anyway because they're so profitable, and if globally mandated to the greatest extent ever."


This didn't just happen. Life Inc: The Book

"In Life Inc., award-winning writer, documentary filmmaker, and scholar Douglas Rushkoff traces how corporations went from a convenient legal fiction to the dominant fact of contemporary life. Indeed as Rushkoff shows, most Americans have so willingly adopted the values of corporations that they’re no longer even aware of it.

This fascinating journey reveals the roots of our debacle, from the late Middle Ages to today. From the founding of the chartered monopoly to the branding of the self; from the invention of central currency to the privatization of banking; from the birth of the modern, self-interested individual to his exploitation through the false ideal of the single-family home; from the Victorian Great Exhibition to the solipsism of MySpace; the corporation has infiltrated all aspects of our daily lives. Life Inc. exposes why we see our homes as investments rather than places to live, our 401k plans as the ultimate measure of success, and the Internet as just another place to do business."

get it together for god’s sake, how hard can it be..

Leading economist Nouriel Roubini explains in bullet-point form how hedge funds are driving the stock market collapse. Take careful note of how credit default swaps are a key factor in the stock market sell-off, and how another type of derivative - "collateralized fund obligations" - may be the next shoe to drop:

Those banks apparently also got nailed



We know that issuers of Lehman's credit default swaps will have to pay out hundreds of billions of dollars. But who will actually have to pay that out?

The Times of London writes today:

"About 350 banks and investors are thought to have insured an estimated $400 billion of Lehman’s debt through complex derivatives, known as credit default swaps. These include Pacific Investment Management, the manager of the world’s largest bond fund, Citadel, the US hedge fund, and American International Group, the insurer that the US Government recently bailed out with two loans totalling about $123 billion."



Swedish Vattenfall to Invest in Polish Lignite Project

"Local government representatives from the Legnica, Lubin and Ścinawa administrative districts in the Lower Silesia voivodship in southwestern Poland have sent a letter to Prime Minister Donald Tusk in protest against a plan to exploit the massive lignite reserves in their region, and to use them to fire a huge new power station. The project is gaining momentum, and local and foreign companies, such as Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE) and Vattenfall of Sweden, have stated their interest in it. The estimated cost of the project is zł.7.7 billion."

"Invited to comment on the opposition to the project by local residents, the spokesperson for Vattenfall in Poland, Łukasz Zimnoch, replied enigmatically.

"Vattenfall wants to develop dynamically in Poland, matching its next steps to the growth of the Polish economy as a whole," he offered."

Did Canada cave under US Israeli pressure?

Michael Ratner: Canada gave in to pressure from US ambassador

ZAA NKWETA, PRESENTER: A Canadian Foreign Affairs training manual has created a diplomatic firestorm. At issue is a list of countries with possible torture and abuse cases. The list includes the United States. The manual was inadvertently released to lawyers from Amnesty International working on a lawsuit involving alleged abuse of Afghan detainees by Canadians. US Ambassador to Canada David Wilkins has stated that the inclusion of the United States is absurd. Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Maxine Bernier promptly issued an apology, stating that the manual will be reviewed and rewritten. The Real News spoke with Michael Ratner, president of the Center for Constitutional Rights and a leading expert in international law and torture and abuse cases.

Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2007

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released its 2007 list of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians.”  The list, in alphabetical order, includes:

1.  Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY):  In addition to her long and sordid ethics record, Senator Hillary Clinton took a lot of heat in 2007 – and rightly so – for blocking the release her official White House records.  Many suspect these records contain a treasure trove of information related to her role in a number of serious Clinton-era scandals.  Moreover, in March 2007, Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint against Senator Clinton for filing false financial disclosure forms with the U.S. Senate (again).  And Hillary’s top campaign contributor, Norman Hsu, was exposed as a felon and a fugitive from justice in 2007.  Hsu pleaded guilt to one count of grand theft for defrauding investors as part of a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme.




Reindeer herders march on Stockholm

Irate reindeer herders from Sweden's indigenous Sami population took to the streets of Stockholm on Friday to protest against Norway's alleged attempts to force the animals from their traditional pastures.

"This is completely unreal. We can't live with a state that terrorizes and hunts us, despite the fact that we are on our own land. We have lived on this land and cultivated it for thousands of years, long before the creation of the Norwegian state," said Saarivuoma chairman Per Anders Nutti in a statement.



Close Guantanamo!!

Hello again travellers,

Now we are on the second stage of our trip, I would like to remember the reasons we have embarked on this journey, and why Guantánamo must be closed.

Can you imagine how it feels to be held at Guantánamo? Or how it would feel if your father, brother or husband was locked up, thousands of miles away, with little hope of access to a proper court, amid all the reports of torture and ill-treatment of the men held there?

You don’t need to guess, you can learn about how this feels directly from those affected.

Thanks everyone, together we can end this outrage.

Sarah Burton
Campaigns Programme Director

Ps. Keep checking www.amnesty.org/guantanamoflotilla and keep your eyes out for new opportunities to act to close Guantánamo.

Stop Europe's Unfair Trade Deals

The European Union (EU) is pushing hard for 76 African, Caribbean and Pacific countries to sign unfair trade deals before the end of this year.

From July, the new man in charge at the European Union is Portuguese Prime Minister Jose Sócrates. We want to tell him that trade could lift millions of people out of poverty if the rules were fair.

The EU promised that the interests of poor countries would be at the heart of their trade deals. But current proposals put the EU’s own economic interests above those of millions of the world’s poorest people and their environment.

The negotiations are at a critical stage. Now is the time to tell the EU that these trade deals must focus on reducing poverty. Your voice can make a difference.

Please ask Prime Minister Socrates to use his influence to make these trade agreements fair.



جمهوری اسلامی ايران Islamic Republic of Iran

Dozens of pre-historic sites across the Iranian plateau point to the existence of ancient cultures and urban settlements, centuries before the earliest civilizations arose in nearby Mesopotamia.[18]

Iran, (Persian: ايران, Īrān; pronounced [iːˈɾɒn]), officially the Islamic Republic of Iran (Persian: جمهوری اسلامی ايران, transliteration: Jomhūrī-ye Eslāmī-ye Īrān), formerly known internationally as Persia, is a Southwest Asian country located in the geographical territories of the Middle East, Southern Asia,[4], Central Asia and the Caucasus. Shi'a Islam is the state religion and Persian the official language.[5]


Rising to the humanitarian challenge in Iraq

Armed violence is the greatest threat facing Iraqis, but the population is also experiencing another kind of crisis of an alarming scale and severity. Eight million people are in urgent need of emergency aid; that figure includes over two million who are displaced within the country, and more than two million refugees. Many more are living in poverty, without basic services, and increasingly threatened by disease and malnutrition. Despite the constraints imposed by violence, the government of Iraq, the United Nations, and international donors can do more to deliver humanitarian assistance to reduce unnecessary suffering. If people’s basic needs are left unattended, this will only serve to further destabilize the country.

The founder of Cirque du Soleil Guy Laliberté launches a global foundation to deal with access to water issues

Distribution Source : Canada NewsWire

Date: Monday - October 29, 2007


MONTREAL, Oct. 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Guy Laliberté announced today, in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, Jeremy Hobbs, Executive Director of Oxfam International, and Gordon Nixon, President and Chief Executive Officer of RBC, the official launch of the ONE DROP Foundation to fight poverty in the world by giving everyone access to water.

"No one can remain indifferent when we know that at least every eight seconds, a child dies from a disease caused by drinking contaminated water," said Guy Laliberté. "With the creation of ONE DROP, we want to mobilize people everywhere in the world to find sustainable solutions to the problem of access to water, and to adopt better practices for the use of this precious resource."

Access to water is one of the planet's most pressing issues. Over a billion people do not have access to water in sufficient quantity or adequate quality. Almost half of the world's population drinks untreated water.

What’s the secret? How do you do it?

Pilger is a strong critic of the institutions and economic forces that structure 'mainstream' journalism. He said in an address at Columbia University on 14 April 2006:

“During the Cold War, a group of Russian journalists toured the United States. On the final day of their visit, they were asked by their hosts for their impressions. 'I have to tell you,' said their spokesman, 'that we were astonished to find after reading all the newspapers and watching TV, that all the opinions on all the vital issues were by and large, the same. To get that result in our country, we imprison people, we tear out their fingernails. Here, you don’t have that. What’s the secret? How do you do it?”

Stop the Iraqi Oil Law

"I'm saddened that it is politically inconvenient to acknowledge what everyone knows: The Iraq war is largely about oil." – Alan Greenspan

The proposed Iraqi oil law would take the majority of Iraq's oil out of the exclusive hands of the Iraqi government and open it to international oil companies for a generation or more. The law is the smoking gun revealing the oil agenda behind the Iraq war. It is what the war was for. For more information go to www.iraqoillaw.com
