U.S. disregard for other countries’ sovereignty increasing

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Referring to Washington’s failure to inform Pakistan before it tracked and killed Osama bin Laden three weeks ago, Svenska Dagladet insisted “the US has also carried out intelligence against terrorists on Swedish territory.”

“It’s been common practice for the Americans since September 11th, 2001 to carry out operations both with and without consent from the country where the operation takes place” – Swedish intelligence expert Professor Wilhelm Agrell.

U.S. to attack Pakistan?

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Since its inception, Israeli has wanted to destabilize its neighbours and any other potential enemies.

In much the same way that the death of Josip Broz Tito triggered the breakup of Yugoslavia by chaos and civil war, it is hoped that the elimination of regional ‘strongmen’ will result in relatively powerful states becoming just groups of squabbling rivals, with tribal and religious differences keeping them too busy to form a united front and bother anyone.

Israel’s ongoing plundering & theft of Palestinian resources

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

“Israeli run-quarries in the West Bank — including Nahal Raba and Yatir quarries, which are operated by subsidiaries of HeidelbergCement and Cemex — supply almost a quarter of Israel’s construction material.”

“The Israeli daily Haaretz reports that in its annual report for 2005, Israel’s state comptroller revealed that although any royalties from the quarries should be used for the benefit of the Palestinian population, they were paid into the Israeli state treasury instead (“Digging up the dirt,” 3 September 2010).”  (link below).

Upcoming visit: Will Obama stand up to Israel?

Friday, May 20th, 2011

“To this must be added the international pressure for an academic and economic boycott of Israel, which has been generated by the recognition that there is no other way to force Israel to end the occupation. Closer to home, Deutsche Bahn’s withdrawal from the project to lay a railway line between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem should have caused a shock. But here, we prefer to avoid reality.”

China moving to ‘surround’ the U.S?

Friday, May 20th, 2011

This story from last year shows the extent of Chinese efforts to establish military co-operation and potential alliances with America’s neighbours.  This initiative might not seem like much now, but the Chinese invest for the long-term. The situation could be considerably more dangerous in a few years time; the clock is ticking…

Israel spying on Russia?

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

As there are no indications that Colonel Leiderman was questioned and deported as a ‘reprisal’ or tit-for-tat response to Israel having deported a Russian military attache, then either this is a very serious warning to Israel over suspected activities, or he is guilty.

It seems the Russians have little regard for diplomatic status where spying is concerned. Neither should anyone else, particularly Canada with its serious ‘China problem’.

Constable Nobody

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

It used to be said that the biggest and best organized street gang in Los Angeles was the LAPD.

And so it is in Toronto. Just like the Crips and Bloods, the Toronto police often seem to think that they can do whatever they want, including causing grievous bodily harm to innocent and unarmed civilians, then protect each other using a ‘code of silence’ that would do credit to the Jamaicans and others that the police routinely criticize for ‘not seeing’ shooting murders committed in front of hundreds of witnesses.
